Daredevil Drew Goddard
According to "The Secret," all you need to do to be successful and get everything you want in life is to put those good vibes out there. And whether or not he's read the bestseller, it seems to have worked for Drew Goddard. “You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up," he told Collider over the summer when asked about the franchise. "Even when I was 18, I still had the blood red door with the, ‘I have shown him that a man without hope is a man without fear.’ That was what I loved and so it’s the sort of thing that if we can find the right project, I would love to do it.” And so, here we are ...

More than a week since its initial release and Gavin Hood's “Ender's Game”, starring Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford has suffered a strange type of purgatorial reception— recognizable to many, including its younger sci-fi target audience, but thus far resisting an actual pull into the theatres. Taking in $41 million worldwide thus far, the Orson Scott Card adaptation is by no means a failure, but as a recent year-end call between Lionsgate executives and shareholders shows, the format of the franchise may need to change before we witness any further installments.

Murder She Wrote Octavia Spencer
While we didn't think the idea of a "Murder, She Wrote" reboot was entirely egregious, it looks like Jessica Fletcher herself is less convinced the idea will work. Angela Lansbury recently spoke with Associated Press (via Herald Sun) and revealed she wishes CBS wouldn't jump off the show she made famous.

Marvel/NetFlix
Has the revolution begun? Netflix announced just a few days ago that they had delivered 2 billion hours of just streaming content in their fourth quarter this year. Before that, Netflix chief Ted Sarandos provoked the industry with a confrontational keynote speech about releasing films day-and-date on the streaming service and warning theater owners that they will "kill movies" if they continue to resist multi-platform distribution. A convenient, self-serving statement, he's since back pedaled away from those comments (after all, it’s Netflix who mostly benefits here).

While David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" will always stand proudly as the moment the distinct filmmaker freaked out America on national network TV, once the show was done, he was finished working on the small screen format. Less known among his filmography is a detour to HBO in 1993 for the three part miniseries "Hotel Room." Well, thanks to the glory of the interwebs, you can now spent the rest of the day hiding out from your boss and watching it in full.

Saul Goodman Spin-off
If you’re still mourning the loss of “Breaking Bad,” cheer up, because Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould are gearing up to bring you back to the ABQ through the Saul Goodman spin-off “Better Call Saul.” While the show was originally announced as a prequel, it appears that some discussions have been had about possibly being a bit more fluid with the show’s timeline, which certainly meshes with reports that doors will be left open for Walter White and Jesse Pinkman to cameo.

With the whole Occupy Wall Street thing touching on pop culture in fits and starts (it recently served as a pretty poor subplot during the last season of "The Newsroom"), it was only a matter of time before it became the central focus of a movie or series.
