Official Trailer for Indie Film 'Small Town Crime' Starring John Hawkes

"We do this - there is no half way." Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for an indie dark comedy titled Small Town Crime, which played at the SXSW and London Film Festivals. The "small town" crime film stars John Hawkes as an alcoholic ex-cop who finds the body of a young woman and, through an act of self-redemption, becomes hell-bent on finding the killer but unwittingly puts his family in danger and gets caught up with several dark characters along the way. Sounds fun, no? The ensemble cast includes Octavia Spencer, Anthony Anderson, Robert Forster, Clifton Collins, Jr., Michael Vartan, James Lafferty, Daniel Sunjata, Caity Lotz, Jeremy Ratchford, Don Harvey, Stefanie Scott, and Dale Dickey. This looks pretty much exactly as it sounds, but at least it's nice to see Hawkes in another lead role. Here's the first trailer (+ posters) for Eshom Nelms & Ian Nelms's Small Town Crime,

Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 7 Review: 300,000 Likes

  • TVfanatic
Every now and again there's that episode of a crime drama where you hate the bad guy so much you get caught up in it. Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 7 is one of those episodes. We all know who did it, we just want the Cpd Intelligence Unit to prove it so we can enjoy their downfall.

The State's Attorney's Office is sure that its present defendant, who has skated on numerous charges before, just had a witness killed so that he can skate again. It's up to Intelligence - namely a very brassed-off Erin Lindsay - to prove that and make sure Oliver Tuxhorn gets what he so richly deserves.

If you don't, a serial rapist and murderer walks.

Octavia Spencer And John Hawkes Among Ensemble Cast To Star In New Thriller Small Town Crime

Eshom and Ian Nelms’ indie thriller Small Town Crime has completed a casting spree that has locked down the likes of Octavia Spencer and John Hawkes in key roles, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

John Hawkes will be serving as the narrative crux, though, stepping into the well-worn shoes of “an alcoholic ex-cop who finds the body of a young woman and, through an act of self-redemption, becomes hell-bent

The heroes and villains of X-Men: First Class

As X-Men: First Class arrives in UK cinemas, James provides a handy guide to the film’s roster of heroes and villains, and when they first appeared...

Picture the scene. You've got into the earliest possible screening of this summer's latest Marvel movie blockbuster, X-Men: First Class. You've re-watched the entire trilogy to bring yourself up to date. Nothing can stop you from enjoying what is, by many accounts, the best X-Men film so far.

And yet, as the film unfolds, you begin to wonder what's going on. These aren't the X-Men of your youth, neither the 90s cartoon, nor the movies of the last decade. There's no Cyclops, no Jean, no Rogue. No Wolverine! You'd even settle for a glimpse of Halle Berry or Vinnie Jones.

Your brow begins to sweat. "Who are these second-raters," you cry out, disturbing those seated around you, "and what have they done with the real X-Men?

Now That I Think About It #1: Cold Case

  • SpoilerTV
Did you ever look back on something and realize your opinion of it has drastically changed? In the entertainment world, it's not uncommon. Sometimes we just don't have all the pieces; sometimes we get it wrong. In honor of those oversights and flubs, I want to introduce this column - a special series within "Rewind Recaps" dedicated to those shows I want to look back on, but can't retroactively revisit.

And now that I think about it, I really should have stopped referring to CBS' Cold Case (2003-2010) as "that show that aired before The Unit."

Don't ask me why it was never on my radar. I knew that it existed; after all, I was a pretty faithful viewer of The Unit, which meant I sometimes caught the last few minutes of Cold Case. One way or another, I had at least heard of the premise and characters, because when

Rumor: Caleb Landry Jones is Top Choice for Banshee in X-Men: First Class

Rumor: Caleb Landry Jones is Top Choice for Banshee in X-Men: First Class
LatinoReview is reporting a rumor that Caleb Landry Jones (Friday Night Lights, The Longshots, The Last Exorcism) is Matthew Vaughn's top choice to play Sean Cassidy  aka Banshee in X-Men: First Class. Banshee is an Irish mutant named after a legendary ghost from Irish mythology, said to possess a powerful cry. According to wikipedia, he possesses a "sonic scream" capable of causing physical vibrations and harming enemies through sound. In the comic books, Banshee was more than a decade older than most of the X-Men and had a exciting past as an interpol agent and NYPD police officer. The character became a mentor to the Generation X junior Massachusetts Academy X team of the 1990's alongside Emma Frost. So it appear that Singer's storyline mixes the comic book storylines up a bit. Actor Jeremy Ratchford portrayed the character in a 1996 live-action Generation X television movie. Previously: Michael Fassbender of

Cold Case: CBS TV Show's Cancelled, No Season Eight

After seven years on the beat, the show's over for Detective Lily Rush (Kathryn Morris). CBS has officially cancelled Cold Case.

Each episode of Cold Case begins by showing an unsolved crime from the past. The scene then flashes forward to the present day and a group of homicide detectives try to piece together what really happened, using old evidence and new interviews. The series stars Morris, Danny Pino, John Finn, Jeremy Ratchford, Thom Barry, and Tracie Thoms.

Cold Case began in September of 2003 and quickly became a staple of the CBS Sunday night schedule. The crime drama had a successful first season and, by season two, was averaging a 3.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 15.1 million viewers. For the next couple seasons, total viewership fell a bit but the all-important demo numbers rose, reaching a 3.8 in season four.
