In Theaters This Week (10/14/2016) – The Accountant, Max Steel, Desierto


Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  October 14th brings three new wide releases, but nothing of the caliber still we saw in September.

Trailer Time: The Accountant (2016) *If Accountancy Was Like This, More People Would Be Interested*

Warner Bros. has sent us the first official trailer for dierctor Gavin O’Connor’s latest project, The Accountant(2016), starring Ben Affleck, J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow, Anna Kendrick, and Jon Bernthal. The film will open in theaters across the United States on October 14.

Synopsis: Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

2015 Emmy Awards Recap: The Winners and Who SHOULD Have Won!!!


The Oscars and I have complicated relationship in which I’m obsessed with them, but also loathe them.  They are, in fact, the only thing that has gotten me to throw large physical objects at my television out of sheer frustration at the stupidity of it all.  Keep in mind I made it through 16 years of a Clinton/Bush II doubleheader without doing that.  The Emmys I don’t watch.  I do not watch them because I simply can’t afford to buy a new TV every September.  Last night Andy Samberg hosted the 2015 Emmys, we’ll run down all the winners (and who SHOULD have won).  Killing Time’s own Emmy is being voted on right now on the homepage, and you have about a week to either keep boosting Daredevil to #1 or weigh in on your favorite show.

Netflix Wants Arrested Development Season 5

Arrested Development, Netflix, Michael Cera, George Michael Bluth

Netflix’s foray into original programming (Hemlock Grove aside…so bad) has been a huge shot in the arm for the company.  Resurrecting cult comedy classic Arrested Development for a fourth season has been a coup.  Netflix refuses to release numbers, so it’s hard to be exact, but according to Internet tracking firm Procera, AD4 is drawing twice as many viewers as Netflix’s first original series: House of Cards.  That drama (which is fantastic and must-see) was hailed by the company as a huge success.

This being the case, it’s unsurprising that a fifth season of the misadventures of the Bluth clan is hoped for by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings.  “Arrested is unique, because [whether or not it comes back is] really up to the talent. If the talent were willing to do more, and interested in that, I’m sure we would be willing.”

Arrested Development’s creator, Mitchell Hurwitz, has long wanted to do a movie with the cast, and some think season four is the springboard he’s using to get that film, but Netflix is certainly going to give the show more love than FOX ever did when it was winning it Emmys.
