Ray Donovan will get another 12 episodes in its sixth season tun, which is set to go out on Showtime and Sky Atlantic in the UK next summer.
“‘Ray Donovan’ broke new ground this season with its deeply emotional and innovative approach to Abby’s passing, without sacrificing any of the intensity that has been its trademark,” Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. said. “We so appreciate that David Hollander is never satisfied with the status quo, and his creative plan for moving the show to New York reflects his relentless ambition for this series.”
“For our show, creatively, New York is exciting. Fashion, media, finance, theatre, culture. It’s going to present new
The fix is in. Here's why Hollywood crime drama Ray Donovan deserves a place among the hallowed TV greats...
Breaking Bad. The Sopranos. The Wire.

Three of the most popular and critically acclaimed serialised dramas. The Mount Rushmore of TV. Look up any list and you’ll see them there, digging their elbows in and jostling for position inside the top ten.
But if we’re going with the Mount Rushmore metaphor, there’s a blank space on the mountain and an argument for Ray Donovan to have his face carved into the rock, nestled between McNulty, Tony and Heisenberg.
Donovan’s the answer to Hollywood’s biggest problems: Heavyweight boxing champ has a dead girl in his bath tub? Call Ray. Pop megastar bribed with a sex tape leak?
“The new season of Ray Donovan finds Ray (two-time Emmy nominee Liev Schreiber) turning his attention back to Hollywood and his celebrity fixer firm. Meanwhile, Mickey (Oscar winner Jon Voight) is overjoyed to at last be welcomed into Ray’s home and swears to finally mend his criminal ways. Joining the series in a season-long arc is Oscar winner and four-time Emmy-nominated actress Susan Sarandon as legendary media mogul “Samantha Winslow,” who sets Ray against her own fixers in fear they may know too much. Additional season five guest stars include Brian White (Chicago Fire), Adina Porter (American Horror Story), Rhys Coiro (Entourage), Lili Simmons (Hawaii Five-0), Tara Buck (True Blood), C. Thomas Howell (Criminal Minds) and Dominique Columbus
Chuck Wepner is his name. He’s the man that went fifteen rounds in the ring with the man of the hour, Muhammad Ali. Chuck also happens to be the name of the new film coming out about his life in and out of the ring and show business. Directed by Philippe Falardeau (who had previously directed The Good Lie), the film stars Liev Schreiber as Chuck Wepner, Naomi Watts as Linda, Elisabeth Moss as Phyliss, Jim Gaffigan as John, and Ron Perlman as Al Braverman.
Of course, since this is a dramatic version of real life events, it wouldn’t be a film without having Sylvester Stallone

A drama inspired by the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner.
Are strong acting and unrecognizable familiar faces enough to push a film over the hump from bad to good? Usually yes, but Chuck (also known as The Bleeder in other territories) is a rare sort of misfire that only has the talent in front of the screen going for it. Directed by Phillipe Falardeau (The Good Lie and Monsieur Lazhar), notable names such as Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, and more have all gone through impressive physical transformations, whether it be from physical makeovers to New Jersey accents and more, and while they all generally seem to be firing on all cylinders including having excellent chemistry with one another (Naomi Watts, the
This is Patrick switching to first person, and I was able to see 13 media and film works, and took a turn in the “Immersive” or Virtual Reality arcade (there will a separate article on that experience). I sampled TV, short films, documentaries and narrative films, and rank them from first preferred on down, but honestly I didn’t see anything that I didn’t like, which is a testament to the programmers of this iconic film festival.
The following are the prime 13, and an indication of when they are scheduled to release…

What seems like a “Juno” rip-off,
A Dog’s Purpose review by Paul Heath, May 2017.
A Dog’s Purpose, which is actually based on the novel of the same name by W. Bruce Cameron, who also co-writes the screenplay, is broken down into several chunks, each one narrated by Gad telling the story from the point of view of a different dog. The narrative covers the life of that dog from birth to death, and, once it dies, is reincarnated into a different breed, and sometimes different sex. The first, set sometime in the 1950s, follows golden retriever Bailey, a dog owned by an eight year old named Ethan and his family. The story spans the course of a decade until the teenage Ethan (K.J. Apa) moves away to college,

Founded by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the festival has helped revitalize the city and remind both filmmakers and fans alike of New York City’s valued place in film and TV while becoming a welcoming community for voices and perspectives from all over the world. “It’s also a fabric of our city. So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.”
The 2017 festival, which runs April 19-30, continues to expand beyond film and TV with
The boxer who fought Muhammad Ali and inspired Rocky gets his real story told in Chuck. Here's the first trailer...
If you're a fan of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky, you may want to keep an eye on Chuck. Directed by Philippe Falardeau, the biopic tells the story of former New Jersey boxer and booze peddler Chuck Wepner, who went 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali, and inspired the character Rocky Balboa.

Wepner is played by a beefy Liev Schreiber, while the movie also stars Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Naomi Watts, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rapaport, Pooch Hall and Morgan Spector in supporting roles.
Chuck received good reviews when it screened at the 2016 Venice Film Festival, so we're rather looking forward to this one. Like Balboa
A Wepner movie has been long in the works, with Schreiber and his co-star (and wife) Naomi Watts (Demolition) being attached since 2011 when the movie was titled The Bleeder. The film wrapped principal photography in December 2015 and was screened at the 2016 Venice Film Festival in September, so its theatrical release is a long time coming.
The few critics who were able to catch the film at Venice welcomed it with mostly positive reception, calling it familiar yet enjoyable and commending a no-punches-pulled performance from Schreiber.
Chuck Wepner was a liquor salesman from New Jersey who went 15 rounds with the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali. In his ten years in the ring, Wepner endured two knockouts, eight broken noses, and 313 stitches. But his toughest fights were outside the ring: an epic life of drugs, booze, wild women, incredible highs and extraordinary lows in IFC's biopic.
Liev Schreiber is joined by an all-star cast that also includes Naomi Watts, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rapaport and Pooch Hall, with
Co-starring Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Naomi Watts, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rapaport, and Pooch Hall, and directed by Philippe Falardeau (“Monsieur Lazhar“), the film tells the true story of journeyman boxer Chuck Wepner, who suddenly found himself in sport’s biggest spotlight.
