Quantico is in its third season and averages 2.4 million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating. 0.7 used to be the drop dead line for […]
In what might be some of the best legacy/stunt casting of the season, ABC’s Designated Survivor has cast Kim Raver for an upcoming major story arc.

The dropping of David Hayter as the voice of Snake in Metal Gear Solid V was a controversial decision when it was announced Kiefer Sutherland was taking over the role.

Just days ahead of its premiere at Cannes, the marketing materials for Lars von Trier‘s science fiction parable Melancholia are starting to come out of the woodwork.
