Kevin Smith talks Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Clerks 3, Mallrats 2 and more!

If you’ve ever worked retail, it’s impossible not to connect with the hilarity on display in the classic Kevin Smith comedy Clerks.

If you are fan of the two, then you are well aware that this comedic duo continued on in Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Clerks 2, Dogma and Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back. Hell, the two even popped…

Strike Back to End with Season 7, Confirms Cinemax

Joseph Baxter Feb 27, 2019

Cinemax has renewed long-running action-packed drama Strike Back for a seventh and final season.

Strike Back has just received orders for its final mission.

While the currently-running sixth season of Strike Back only just launched on January 25, Cinemax wasted little time issuing a preemptive renewal for a seventh season of the firearms-and-espionage action thriller. However, the swift greenlight comes with the caveat that Season 7 will mark the end of the series.

The series, which follows the intense exploits of a deadly, internationally-operating government-disavowed British special ops team, called Section 20, has seen its gun-toting team save the world from terrorist cells and even nuclear global catastrophe. However, the team is set to tackle one last global threat before riding off into the proverbial Cinemax sunset.

As Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming, states of the move:

Strike Back established Cinemax as a destination for adrenalized, entertaining

Demons, Monkeys, and Ice Men Brawl in Trailer for Stephen Chow and Tsui Hark’s ‘Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back

Stephen Chow‘s Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons quickly took off upon its international release in early 2013, earning praise for and winning audiences with its (typical of the multi-hyphenate) inventive action sequences, soon going on to become the highest-grossing Chinese-language film of all-time. It has since been surpassed by Chow’s follow-up feature, The Mermaid, and, if the trailer for Journey‘s sequel, subtitled The Demons Strike Back — that’s how life works: first you conquer the demons, then they strike back — is indicative of what we’re to get, he may hit the seemingly impossible three-peat.

Written by Chow and directed by the legendary Tsui Hark, it concerns palaces, slums, royal figures, bums, monkeys, ice men, and, yes, demons, all of which are either the setting for or focus of huge-scale, CGI-assisted action sequences that, in most cases, would look like far too much. But the noise

For anyone missing the two-fisted action of Cinemax's recently completed Banshee and Strike Back, the network plans to win you over again with its latest hard-boiled series Quarry.

Millennials Are Slowly Killing the DVR — Which Could Go The Way of the Vcr

This summer, the last-known videocassette recorder manufacturer shut down production – effectively ending that once-dominant medium after several decades. Could the DVR soon face a similar fate?

More than 17 years after digital video recorder technology was first launched at the 1999 Consumer Electronics Show, growth has stalled. About 50 percent of U.S. television households now use a DVR, but that number is flat, and has been for several years. While older viewers continue to adopt the DVR, younger viewers – including Millennials – seem disinterested.

“I think we can fairly say that the DVR’s reign is about to end,” Alan Wurtzel, NBC’s research and media development president, recently told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour. “Anybody who wants a DVR has one. If you don’t have one, it’s because you don’t want it.”

According to CBS research, DVR usage by adults 18-49 – still the money demo targeted

‘The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey’ Trailer: Maybe The Star Wars Prequels Aren’t Bad?
You’d be hard-pressed to find a longtime Star Wars fan who has a lot of nice things to say about the prequels that George Lucas returned to direct in the late 1990s and through the early 2000s. The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith were undoubtedly huge hits, but they […]

The Prequels Strike Back Trailer: This Documentary Wants Us to Reconsider The Worst Star Wars Movies

It's going to take a hell of a lot of convincing to get me (and many other Star Wars fans) to appreciate George Lucas's prequels as anything other than a step forward in the then-burgeoning art of digital filmmaking. But a new documentary called The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journey seems to want to convince us that the three largely-reviled films deserve to be reconsidered. Featuring interviews with prominent film critics (and Kevin Smith), Bradley Weatherholt's doc nevertheless seems like something I'd be interested in watching, even if I don't ultimately change my mind about the movies. But hey — maybe there's some revelation or insight in here that does completely alter my perception of these films on a fundamental level. I'll never know unless I watch it.

The Prequels Strike Back hits VOD on September 14.

Coming Distractions: The Prequels Strike Back asks fans to unlearn what they have learned about Star Wars

It would appear that both The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are part of a massive apology tour from Kathleen Kennedy for George Lucas’s prequel trilogy, attempting to recapture that magic of the original 1977 film by basically remaking it. Each film of the prequel series, beginning with 1999’s The Phantom Menace, was met with with revulsion and abhorrence by fans who went and saw them three times each, just to make sure they weren’t missing anything.

However, it turns out not every Star Wars fan despises the prequels—after all, hate leads to suffering blah, blah blah—and those fans are the subject of a new documentary, The Prequels Strike Back, from filmmaker and prequel apologist Bradley Weatherholt. Throughout the course of the film, Weahterholt seeks to “unlearn the prequels,” delving into the method to Lucas’s madness and take a second ...

CBS’ Glenn Geller on Diversity: ‘We Need to Do Better, and We Know It’

CBS’ Glenn Geller on Diversity: ‘We Need to Do Better, and We Know It’
CBS is less diverse this year when it comes to series leads, and entertainment president Glenn Geller admits it.

The exec was hit hard on the topic Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour, confessing that “we need to do better and we know it.”

Geller didn’t give concrete details on how the network would address the issue over the coming year, but did tout the fact that CBS’ series ensembles have actually become “more diverse” over the past year.

That’s in part because, after being criticized this spring for its lineup, the network worked to add more diverse faces via new supporting roles. Out of those 16 new roles, 11 of them feature diverse actors and actresses. (Among them: Wilmer Valderrama, Jennifer Esposito and Duane Henry joining the cast of “NCIS,” plus Aisha Tyler and Adam Rodriguez becoming regulars on “Criminal Minds.
