Latest News Items (What is this?)


  • 03:50 - Top Ten Broadcast Network TV Shows



  • 03:50 - Supergirl - Midseason Finale Post Mortem Interview
    Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.
    How much is Astra genuinely wanting to save the world and how much is this Non influencing her?
    It’s actually the other way around. If Non had his way, he would be launching war. It’s Astra who says that there’s a better way to save a planet and save a people from themselves. That’s what they’re dealing with.

    Do you think there was always a part of Cat that knew Kara was Supergirl?
    No, but what’s interesting is Cat does have a little bit of a Keyser Söze moment in episode 8, where Kara does something a little bit beyond the ability of a human being, and then it makes Cat start to think about, “Well, in episode 5, Livewire attacked us, I sent you for help, and then Supergirl showed up. You’re never sick. You were the one who was so upset about me calling Supergirl.” She’s starting to piece it all together. That’s how it comes out. How the two of them deal with it in episode 9 is both hilarious and heartbreaking and emotional. It’s very cool.

    Thanks to Chris for the heads up.


    Cool cool cool: Community’s Danny Pudi and Joel McHale are reuniting with co-star Ken Jeong on his new comedy, ABC’s Dr. Ken.

    McHale and Pudi will pop-pop up on the Valentine’s Day episode of Dr. Ken, which airs Feb. 5. The episode will tape next month.

    McHale will play Ross Kirkland, the “snarky bulldog of a medical malpractice attorney, who’s been a nemesis of Ken’s for years. Ken finally gets his chance to go toe-to-toe with Ross when their children strike up a Romeo and Juliet-style romance.” Pudi will join in as Topher Mitchum, who is “Julie’s (Kate Simses) on-again/off-again boyfriend. Seemingly sweet and unassuming, Topher is, in reality, a manipulative Casanova, who inexplicably has Julie under his spell.”

    It’s a reunion for Jeong, Pudi and McHale, who spent six seasons (and perhaps, one day, a movie) together on Community.

  • 23:00 - American Horror Story: Freak Show Actress, Rose Siggins Has Died
    Siggins' manager informed fans on Friday that the actress was "in the hospital and the outlook on her current health is grim."

    Rose Siggins, the actress who played Legless Suzi on FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show, died Saturday morning in Denver, Co., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. She was 43.

    Siggins' manager, James Mullen, told THR of Siggins' passing and also made an announcement early Saturday on a Go Fund Me page that has been set up for the actress' children. "I'm sad to report that Rose has passed away this morning around 7:30am. All funds raised will now be directed to final expenses and the continuing support of her children," he wrote.

    The post continued: "I suppose Elsa Mars said it best: 'The death of a beloved monster is always a sorrow, but never a surprise. If oddly-formed organs or a random physical anomaly doesn't claim them, then it is at the sheer density of their blaze. A carny's life burns and brighter than most. It is bound to extinguish sooner.'"

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
