Hall will take over from the current occupant of the role Andrew Rannells on October 16th and fulfil the schedule over the festive period through to January 4th. The Christmas and New Year weeks are traditionally extremely lucrative on Broadway, and this is surely one of the factors that’s gone into making the decision to appoint Hall. Rannells himself took the role back in August after it was vacated by ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star Neil Patrick Harris.

Netflix Treats Customers With Halloween Gift: The Complete Series Of 'Dexter'


Michael C. Hall

Dexter is back! Well, not back, but it is available to watch once again as online streaming giants Netflix have bought the full rights to the hit Showtime series. The show, which ended for good in September, won't be available to binge watch unfortunately though, as the streaming service will only be making season one to four available at the end of the month, with the rest of the series being uploaded on 1 January.

This won't be Dexter's first foray into the world of online streaming, as fans will remember that the show was initially made available on Netflix until 2011. The show was taken down from the subscriber service two years ago when CBS and Netflix renegotiated their streaming contract - a move that also took Californication away from the site - but now both sides have come to an agreement and will begin distributing the show to online viewers once again.

“We’re thrilled to have Dexter, one of Showtime’s highest-rated shows on Netflix, and so quickly after it completed its record-breaking run,” Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said in a statement (quoted by Variety). "This is one of the great serialized dramas of the past decade and we know our members will enjoy discovering or reliving the twisted world of Dexter Morgan anywhere and anytime they want.”

Kill Your Darlings Trailer


Allen Ginsberg is a Beat Generation writer, with no idea that his venture to New York to attend Columbia University will hold more than just a promising future career-wise. It's there that he meets Lucien Carr; a slightly unhinged but ambitious, intelligent and extremely good looking fellow student who enjoys wild partying with his wealthy friend  William Burroughs and, later, Jack Kerouac. As Allen and Lucien become closer, the latter's much older friend - a professor named David Kammerer - becomes increasingly jealous, threatening Allen who discovers that he has been following Lucien from city to city over a few years. Although Allen insists that they must find a way to prevent this incessant stalking, he is deeply shocked when David's body is discovered in the Hudson River, with Lucien held as prime suspect for stabbing him to death. Allen now faces a dilemma; to either use his skills in writing to make sure his friend is liberated, or reveal what he now believes is the truth to all.

In our penultimate episode, we saw Deb coughing up her guts at the hands of Oliver Saxon/Daniel Vogel/The Brain Surgeon, whilst Dexter looked happily towards the future, whilst unbeknownst to him the odds were stacking up against his seemingly fool-proof escape plan. With the open of the final episode, the odds looked even more stack for Dex, who walks in on Hannah hiding in the toilet in a bid to hide from PI Jacob Elway. Always the man with a plan, Dex heads to a shop for a bag full of goodies and calls in a fake bomb threat, getting rid of Elway, but inadvertently evacuating the whole of the airport. With Hurricane Laura on it's way, his clean break is looking in increasing jeopardy.

Dexter Cupcakes To Celebrate Final Season, And A Possible Spinoff


Michael C. Hall

Dexter might be nearly over, but there’s always time for a celebratory cupcake or two… oh, and a spinoff show, of course. Possibly. Maybe. After AMC’s party for the final season of the serial killer drama – apparently there were cupcakes and fake blood involved, network boss David Nevin made a press appearance, which only amped up the mystique. AMC could not be guarding the secret of the Dexter spinoff more closely – at the Television Critics Association summer press tour Nevin announced that the network had closed a two-year deal with showrunner Scott Buck after the show ends, according to Deadline. The deal does not necessarily mean that Buck will be working on Dexter related content, as Buck has previously hinted at a very conclusive finale for the series.

But what does it mean? Fans are already rallying around the tentative prospect of a spinoff, but Nevin remained tight-lipped. According to The Wrap, when asked directly whether a spinoff was in the works, he replied: “We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions.”

Confirmed: Dexter Series Eight Will Be Its Last


Michael C. Hall Jennifer Carpenter

Finally, the news has been confirmed that Dexter will get one more series, but it will be the last. A short clip has aired online, courtesy of the producers Showtime, giving a sneak peek of the eighth season of the show. However, this will be the final outing for Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter’s drama. The clip shows Deborah (Carpenter) avoiding her brother, skipping LaGuerta’s memorial and generally closing everyone out, claiming that she’s working on a case.

Back in December, the executive producer Scott Buck told The Hollywood Reporter that they were expecting the show to be ending, though they were open to continuing if they got the word: “We are absolutely writing it with an end in sight, but if we get told otherwise somewhere along the way, we'll take it in a different direction. But we are definitely working toward the finale of the series. We are indeed, yes.”

During its time on air, Dexter has rustled up a whole slew of awards and nominations including 25 Emmy award nominations. Michael C Hall has landed five nominations for best actor and has also racked up ten Golden Globe nominations for his role in the show. It’s Showtime’s most popular production, alongside Homeland, with its series seven finale drawing in 6.2 million weekly viewers. Bowing out, on a high, very soon Dexter will be no more.

Dexter Morgan Returning For A Summer Season This Time


Michael C. Hall

Everyone’s favorite fictional sociopath will be returning earlier than expected as Showtime have made the surprising decision to move Dexter up a few months.

The new season will begin airing in the Saturday 9pm slot in June, instead of September as usual. It is yet unclear what this will mean for the show. Talk of cancellation is still going strong, but there is no telling whether this eighth season of Dexter will be its last. Perhaps the fate of the show isn’t sealed just yet, as network execs are being infuriatingly vague about the future.

At the Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime’s president of entertainment, David Nevins had this to say: "There’s a clear endgame in place. I can’t talk about it just yet. The decision of when to end Dexter is ultimately a creative decision."

Paycheck Review


OK
Sci-fi fans will see clear similarities between John Woo's action/thriller Paycheck and Paul Verhoeven's Total Recall (1991). Both deal with memory and identity, as adapted from stories by author Philip K. Dick. Both star thousand-watt Hollywood celebrities (Ben Affleck here, Governor Schwarzenegger in Recall) in roles that ask little from them. And, most disappointingly, both shun an intellectual and sturdy drama that would fit the subject matter perfectly, choosing action and cornball dialogue instead.

"My life is nothing but highlights," confesses Mike Jennings (Affleck), a genius computer hacker who trades big cash for small chunks of his own memory. Jennings gets rich by dissecting massive programs and passing the goods onto rival companies - at which point, all recent activity is erased from his brain.
