The only place where you'll find Superman sitting alongside Bret Easton Ellis...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 23 Jul 2012
To the small screen now and America’s indifference to anything not made in their own back yard – Steve Van Zandt addresses the subject in the new Hot Press – means that CBS have turned the BBC’s Sherlock into Elementary.
Starring Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as a gender-swap Watson, the action is set, natch, in New York and also benefits from the talents of Aidan Quinn.
Sticking with what the major US networks have in store for us this autumn, ABC have lavished a fortune on new military drama series, Last Resort.
Created by Shawn Ryan of The Shield and The Chicago Code fame, it tells the story of a submarine crew who set up their own sovereign island state after refusing to nuke Pakistan. Far-fetched but apparently highly watchable.
Bringing the curtain down on this week’s Movies Monday is the Dum Dum Girls-soundtracked trailer for Bret Easton Ellis’ The Canyons.
We say “trailer” but it’s actually a random montage of LA images, which director Paul Schrader has assembled to give people “a flavour” of the 2013 film, which star Lindsay Lohan and porn actor James Deen who enjoyed his first stint in rehab while still at Junior (very) High.
Incidentally, Bret Easton Ellis is a must-follow on Twitter if you want his random – and very entertaining – thoughts on life, love and Stanley Kubrick.
Remember that Bollywood movie they filmed last year in Dublin? Well, the first Ek Tha Tiger trailer has just surfaced on YouTube and most entertaining it looks too with Trinity College, Kilkenny GAA shirts and leprechaun hats all making for, ahem, a highly authentic Irish feel.
