Apple’s original content creation machine is starting to churn at full steam, based on a new report that the iPhone-maker has inked a deal for yet another original series.
Apple ordered a straight-to-series TV show this week that will be written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and directed by Francis Lawrence, who helmed the first two movies in The Hunger Games franchise.
Apple wants to create a hit TV show that’s as popular as Game of Thrones only without all the nudity and violence.
According to a new report, Hollywood talent pitching Apple’s TV team has been informed that the company wants to make original shows that are suitable for all audiences so they can be played at Apple stores.
Hollywood is racing to do business with Apple in hopes to help the iPhone-maker create its first breakout TV series and movies.
Apple’s LA-based TV execs, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, have been lining up meetings with some of the top names in town, according to a new report that sheds some light on the company’s TV strategy. Everyone from Jennifer Aniston to Steven Spielberg has pitched the duo. But in true Apple fashion, they’re being very picky about what they say yes to.
20th Century Fox just committed to producing a television pilot called All Together Now about six twentysomethings who promise to unplug from their mobile devices and engage with each other as long as they can possibly stand it.
Take a moment to watch the above trailer for The Walking Dead’s upcoming season five. It’s got all the things that make a Walking Dead trailer great – scary music, tight editing, and enough little details to keep the fans guessing and excited.
Consider our excitement, then, when we found the amazing trailer below: a shot-by-shot recreation of the entire Walking Dead trailer above, made with LEGOs.
Even better, we’re still excited to see the upcoming season, even if we’d just watched the LEGO trailer – it’s that good. Check it out below.
Halt and Catch Fire isn’t Silicon Valley where the presence of a woman in a skirt sends the coders into a tailspin. This is the dying cry of the zipless f**k, before everyone got spooked about AIDS. This is hot neon, the smell of the soldering gun on a circuit board, and the deep empty place inside that drives creative people to do crazy things, think different, and meet each other where the metal meets the code.
Unfortunately, dismal ratings may possibly keep the show, whose plot hinges on a rag-tag group of misfits reverse engineering the IBM PC around the same time Woz & Jobs were busy home-brewing in the garage, from being picked up for a second season.
You can watch Halt and Catch Fire, named for the machine code (HCF) that was able to cause a computer to stop working, on AMC or iTunes.
We feel so strongly about this retro-tastic show (Coleco! Pong! Texas Instruments!) that we put up a petition to save it. Here’s why you should sign:
There are bound to be teething problems as Google Glass rolls out to users. Back in October last year, Cult of Android reported on the Glass user given a ticket for “driving with monitor visible to driver.”
Now we have the not dissimilar case of a theater-goer removed from a screening for alleged piracy.
The viewer in question was watching Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with his wife at an AMC movie theater in Columbus, Ohio, when he was roughly removed from the screening by Department of Homeland Security officials.
The final season of Breaking Bad begins tonight on AMC, and if you’re like me, you can’t get enough of the show. Fans like myself need to check out Breaking Bad: Alchemy, an awesome book from the show’s creators. It was my pick on Faves n’ Raves during the last CultCast.
