‘Heathers’ Series Creator Promises ‘Major’ Changes to Cult Classic, Teases Shannen Doherty Cameo
Paramount Network’s “Heathers” is technically an adaptation of the 1988 cult comedy starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, but series creator Jason Micallef said the show will still find ways to put a new spin on the story. “It’s 2018, it’s not 1988,” Micallef told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday. “No one’s going to want to watch a girl for 10 episodes follow a guy around, murder people and then whine about it.” So Micallef said he created some “very, very major character changes” for the lead character Veronica Sawyer, played by Ryder in the original movie...

One the best-known television presenters in Portugal has to be Catarina Furtado.

Nat Geo TV Goes Shopping for Movies, Docu Series at Natpe

National Geographic Channels is heading to Natpe with a shopping list.

The cable group is sending a small team to Miami this week for the Jan. 16-18 National Association of Television Program Executives conference in a search for movies and docu-series content. The goal is to find films based on true stories and documentary-style content that are tonally similar to Nat Geo’s original programming efforts.

“We’re really looking to acquisitions to help us amplify our bigger budget marquee originals strategy,” said Christian Drobnyk, exec VP of program strategy and acquisitions for Nat Geo Channels.

Drobnyk pointed as an example to the marathon of war-themed movies that Nat Geo ran in early November around the launch of its original limited series “The Long Road Home,” about the ripple effects of an attack in Iraq on a small Army unit. Promoting “Long Road Home” in airings of movies that included “The Hurt Locker,” “Lone Survivor,” and “Zero Dark Thirty

‘The Emoji Movie’ Is the First Film Screened in Saudi Arabia in 35 Years Because of Course It Is

The Emoji Movie was a shit movie. That’s not a controversial thing to say, either as an opinion or as a simple description of what it’s about. It was both one of the worst received movies of last year and featured Patrick Stewart as the voice of the poop emoji as a major selling point in its marketing campaign. It’s a movie that nobody asked for. It’s a movie that virtually nobody saw. Of those unfortunate to have to sit through it, it’s a movie that nobody liked. It was by all accounts an abject failure and wasn’t even conceptually

76 Superheroes in Infinity War?  Where Is Marvel Getting That Number From?

One fascinating news story that’s been in constant, low-key update for seemingly ever is the number of reported Marvel superheroes that are set to appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

During production, relatively modest numbers of 20 and 30 characters were bandied about pretty regularly. The numbers seem to have grown exponentially large since it entered post-production, with forty, fifty and even sixty something characters being said to share the screen at the same time. The
