AMC is not one for the trailer reveal, but that is okay because we are more than happy to gawk at the cable network’s first behind-the-scenes look at Breaking Bad season 5.5. This summer will mark the end of the end for the meth-dealing series, thus giving Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and other cast members the opportunity to taunt us with what they know and we do not. Hit the jump for the view if blue magic is your thing. Continue Reading
Wrapping up a big day on the casting front, it looks like Elizabeth Olsen (who is probably the best unknown talent on the market) is finally about to get her big break. What’s more is that it will be opposite Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston who seems to get in on as many successes as he does flops on the silver screen. That said, we take a look at the heavily-hyped project which happens to be Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot. Continue Reading
In the lead up to tomorrow’s release of Warner Bros.’ Argo, it was completely lost on some that this is an R-rated picture. The historical drama at the core of this thriller pretty much created a sense of PG-13, so why the ‘adult’s only’ sticker? Apparently, director Ben Affleck left a few extra F-bombs in the movie and did not care much to remove them.
Here is a piece he did to promote Argo for Cinemax where he acknowledges this and offers up, “I would take a ten-year-old kid to see this movie.” This is strangely reminiscent of what we saw with TWC’s The King’s Speech a few years ago which also had some profanity until the studio re-released a softened version to help stretch the film’s box office life.

We have started to notice something about multi-Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston. He only seems to promote projects that are award worthy, but who could blame him? After striking out with Total Recall,Rock of Ages,and Larry Crowne (a relatively small role,) the actor is now in the ideal situation of promoting a runaway hit with critics in the form of Argo. That is why the actor was on Leno last night and also the reason why we care about the former star of Malcolm in the Middle.
Right off the bat, he did not divulge the ending to Breaking Bad so move along if you are in this for clues. In fact, conversation on that topic was relatively small as the interview mostly hyped the Ben Affleck-directed Argo–a film that is presumed to be up for a number of Oscar nominations. Whether Cranston has a legitimate shot at the bald-headed statue come February is yet to be seen, but at the moment all we really have to go off of is clips and positive buzz. We will let the movie decide whether one of television’s most decorated actors has finally achieved big screen glory, thus validating the Preparation H commercial (which you are about to witness) that Cranston starred in before making it big.

The 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards may have featured the first Emmy loss for Bryan Cranston since the debut of Breaking Bad, but it certainly was a memorable occasion for the beloved AMC drama. While the sole footprint from the show this year belonged to Aaron Paul who won Best Supporting Actor for the second time, there was a bit between awards that is a can’t miss for fans of the meth-peddling series. The theme was Andy Griffith Show meets Breaking Bad, and while brief, it definitely had us wanting more. Enjoy. Continue Reading
Last year it was Modern Family, this year it is The Office. Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston is continuing to bolster his directing credentials as today it is being reported that the Breaking Bad star will helm an upcoming episode of the long-running NBC comedy series. While specific details are few and far between, the episode in question is titled Work Bus and is set to air on October 18. Continue Reading
Still on the promotional tour for the new season of Breaking Bad, three-time Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night for what best can be described as a love fest for the actor’s AMC drama. The entire interview seemed to focus on the series which many will undoubtedly see as a good thing.
Jimmy opened the interview by acknowledging Breaking Bad’s big ratings win over the weekend. The host hypothesized the show was surging because of people like him who love the program, but ultimately Cranston gives the nod to ‘internet hits’ which most likely is in reference to the series’ streamability on Netflix. The conversation then shifts to the show’s main character Walter White and how he is a not your traditional protagonist. Continue Reading
This Sunday will see the 2012 return of Breaking Bad which means fans of one of television’s best dramas will soon get to see Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston reprise his role as chemistry teacher-turned-meth cook Walter White. So far, the actor has been on Today, The View, and David Letterman this week which makes his most recent appearance via CBS This Morning seem a little less surprising. Nonetheless, it is very much welcome as anytime Cranston wants to talk about Breaking Bad our ears perk up.
He brought a clip along that ran in the front of the interview. It is very much a non-spoiler for those of you who have seen the show’s season five promos as it has White dressing down his lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk.) The scene is meant to build on the evolution of Bryan Cranston’s character towards a tough as nails drug kingpin and it is definitely worth checking out in itself even if you do not care for the rest of the segment.

Bryan Cranston is out doing press for the Vince Gilligan-created Breaking Bad which returns to AMC for its fifth season this coming Sunday. The actor talked about how dark the show has become and what is in store for Walter White, the character responsible for the actor’s multiple Emmy wins.
Here is his brief interview which took place outside of the Today Show studio with the morning program’s anchors.
Nothing excites more more than when I see Breaking Bad’s Walter White act like a bad ass right before he gets the crap kicked out of him. Judging from the way things left off at the end of season four though, those days appear to be behind the character which is played by Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston.
Here is the first official teaser for the return which premiered on Sunday during Mad Men’s season finale. Breaking Bad’s fifth and final season begins in July 15th, but do note that the season’s episodes have been halved meaning the show might not end summer 2013.
There is a new teaser out for the fifth season of Breaking Bad, and no, it is not another one of those clip montages from the previous seasons with tone setting music. This one is really better than that is it features the show’s Emmy-winning stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul talking about how they cannot divulge anything other than the fact that this is the craziest season they have ever done.
Killing a guy with a box cutter is a pretty high bar, but they apparently believe the show has managed to surpass the season four opener’s jaw dropping scene in some capacity. Needless to say, this is a very intriguing, non-informative video.
Bryan Cranston reportedly jumped the gun on the news as to what AMC will be doing with the final season of Breaking Bad. Just last year, the network announced the show would go on for 16 more episodes–a number noticeably bigger than the typical 13 episode season–which indicated to everyone who knows anything about how cable networks think that there would ultimately be a divide.
Up until now, there has been a little bit of debate and speculation on the topic, but just the other day the series’ lead actor went a long way in ending that by proclaiming that the show would indeed be split in two with a four month break between production and a one year gap between airings. Translation: Breaking Bad will end in 2013 and not 2012. A word of caution though, do not presume this will be how things actually go down as AMC will not make a final decision until they have to which would be around when they start promoting Breaking Bad’s fifth season premiere near the end of their current programming cycle.
It is time to get your future on. Earlier today, Sony premiered the initial trailer for the upcoming science fiction thriller Total Recall that is scheduled to hit theaters in August. The movie is a reboot of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie under the same name which went on to gross $260 million at the global box office. This promo provides a first glimpse at the changes and similarities between the two features.
Obviously, the cast is a bit fuller. The Len Wiseman-directed feature stars the likes of Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, and Kate Beckinsale which is rather good considering the only supporting actor that holds up from the original might be Sharon Stone. Also, the upgraded cast and visual effects are certain to help create buzz around this retread leading up to the end of summer. Look out for this one and its Fifth Element-style police chase.
