There is no question about it, we here at JoBlo are very excited to see the first solo effort from DC's ocean-dwelling hero AQUAMAN. We are thrilled at the prospect of Jason Momoa returning and headlining the film. Then there's Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren, Djimon Hounsou and a few other exciting names. However, the star of the newest chapter in the DCU is James Wan. After starting off the SAW franchise, this incredibly gifted filmmaker continued to create massively entertaining horror franchise films like THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS. Yet Wan then took on what perhaps was the most challenging Fast and Furious flick with FURIOUS 7, and he made it a spectacle of a movie-going experience. Now, he's taking on a little project about a guy that can talk to fish. As a fan of the Aquaman character, I have faith that James will lend his style brilliantly to the new film. That faith was restored heavily thanks to a recent edit bay visit with the … [Read more...] about Edit Bay Visit: Scene descriptions and more with James Wan for Aquaman!

How does one best describe Ghost Island to a Survivor fan hearing about the theme of season 36 for the first time? Executive producer Matt Van Wagenen has a solid description, albeit a vague one. "Survivor is a game that, in its history — and we're talking about 35 seasons in the books — that there are a lot of bad decisions that have been made over the course of the show," Van Wagenen tells The Hollywood Reporter, speaking on location from Fiji. "Some of these decisions can come back. They've haunted players throughout the history of the show, and there's somewhat of a presence that these bad decisions have this season. There are things [on Ghost Island] that serve as reminders. I think for a Survivor geek, it is almost a spooky playground." When you arrive at the spooky playground, two towering totems stand guard at the mouth of Ghost Island — reminiscent of the statues found on Easter Island, and remnants of the Survivor Gods, depending on how seriously you believe … [Read more...] about ‘Survivor’ Season 36: A Closer Look at Ghost Island and the Demonic Tribal Council
If TV shows had godparents, Ally McBeal's would have been Melrose Place and The Practice. Without those two series, chances are Fox's groundbreaking dramedy about a lawyer and her crazed life might never have happened. During the 1997 pilot season, Fox was searching for a companion series to follow its fading favorite Melrose Place. Writer-producer David E. Kelley obliged, creating the quirky Ally for a fall launch. However, he balked when the then-head of the network, Peter Roth, suggested they hold off premiering it until spring 1998 so as to avoid the usual glut of fall debuts. Still stinging from ABC's reneging on a deal to give The Practice a guaranteed time slot, Kelley insisted Ally McBeal stick with its premiere on Sept. 8, 1997. His insistence paid off. The series would become a top 20 hit, capturing an average of more than 13 million viewers at its peak and winning a pair of Golden Globes and an Emmy. (The dramedy made TV history as the first, and only, hourlong program … [Read more...] about ‘Ally McBeal’ at 20: Calista Flockhart, David E.
