Every year, The CW Upfront presents a rather delightful prospect: glimpses of new opportunities for romance, action and swooning and more young, hot actors than anyone’s brain can handle (and hopefully all the advertisers will want to buy). The 2013 presentation was no different and the CW has clearly tapped into its best genres for its slate of new shows: ill-fated lovers, warring supernatural species, and (of course) handsome hunks.
The Originals As we saw in the crossover pilot episode of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals is packed with the sex and intrigue we’ve come to expect from Klaus and his family of original vampires. Mix that with a little voodoo by way of New Orleans, and we’ve got what feels like a fresh take on a set of characters we’ve known for three seasons. While we’ll miss Rebekah, Klaus, and Elijah on TVD, there’s not a single piece of this that isn’t beckoning us like a werewolf to the new moon. “Family is power,” according to Klaus and despite the lack of new footage in this preview, we’re firmly in agreement.
The Tomorrow People “In Season 2 [of Arrow], I get to share Wednesday nights with my cousin Robbie,” said Stephen Amell before these clips played. In case you didn’t make the connection, Robbie Amell, star of The Tomorrow People, is cousin to Arrow’s leading shirtless hero Stephen Amell. Banking on that familial connection, The Tomorrow People and its mutants warring against the tyranny of human prejudice aim to nab a little Arrow action in its slot right after the superhero saga. Luckily for the younger Amell, his series looks to have a quite a hook with his troubled hero. Despite the similarities to the X-Men, the show plays well with Amell's (Robbie's, that is) charms and the charisma of his co-stars, including Lost alum Mark Pelligrino as the ruthless antagonist. The action is high and the emotions run deep. It shouldn’t take much for Arrow’s audience to fall in love with The Tomorrow People.
Reign Switching gears a little bit is Reign, which takes on the tale of Mary Queen of Scots as she is sent to France to be married off to a young prince. What she finds is a handsome young man who has no intention of actually tying the knot and danger beyond her wildest dreams. The series looks to be soapy, sexy, and dangerous, like a looser, PG answer to The Tudors. While there is a bit of a triangle, the real draw is Mary’s need to act as a strong heroine, something that is a bit different for the network. If done right, this could be a refreshing new twist on the CW formula.
Star-Crossed Star Wars: The Clone Wars and 90210 fans, rejoice. Matt Lanter is not only returning to television right after both of his beloved series have ended, but he’s returning as the perfect hybrid of his past characters: a sci-fi hunk in live-action. In this mid-season show, Lanter plays a teen alien who suffers persecution as a child but makes it to his high school just in time to participate in a program aimed at integrating the alien population with the humans. Isn't Lanter a little long in the tooth to still be in high school? At the center of it all is Lanter’s romance with his human schoolmate, played by Aimee Teegarden of Friday Night Lights fame. Will they make it? Not without episodes upon episodes of drama, that’s for sure.
The 100 No wonder there have been lots of comparisons between this series and The Hunger Games, though the feel is somewhat more along the lines of Battle Royale, the Japanese movie that real film nerds claim was the inspiration for The Hunger Games. In the future, a space society expels its juvenile delinquents to Earth as guinea pigs meant to assess the inhabitable nature of the ravaged planet and deal with the radioactive deer, new enemies, and violence between the young criminals themselves. There’s not much emphasis on the potential romance in the series, which could be dangerous for a series on a network were love stories are a vital part of every show. But if the characters, story, and action are good enough (see: Supernatural), it just might work.

From Our Partners:Zoe Saldana Strips Down For Magazine (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now? (Celebuzz)
Enigmatic and deliberate Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy makes no reservations while unraveling its heady spy story for better or worse. The film based on the bestselling novel by John Le Carre is purposefully perplexing effectively mirroring the central character George Smiley's (Gary Oldman) own mind-bending investigation of the British MI6's mole problem. But the slow burn pacing clinical shooting style and air of intrigue only go so far—Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy sports an incredible cast that can't dramatically translate the movie's impenetrable narrative. Almost from the get go the movie collapses under its own weight.
After a botched mission in Hungary that saw his colleague Jim (Mark Strong) gunned down in the streets Smiley and his boss Control (John Hurt) are released from the "Circus" (codename for England's Secret Intelligence Service). But soon after Smiley is brought back on board as an impartial observer tasked to uncover the possible infiltration of the organization. The former agent already dealing with the crippling of his own marriage attempts to sift through the history and current goings on of the Circus narrowing his hunt down to four colleagues: Percy aka "Tinker" (Toby Jones) Bill aka "Tailor" (Colin Firth) Roy aka "Soldier" (Ciaran Hinds) and Toy aka "Poor Man" (David Dencik). Working with Peter (Benedict Cumberbatch) a conflicted younger member of the service and Ricki (Tom Hardy) a rogue agent who has information of his own Smiley slowly uncovers the muddled truth—occasionally breaking in to his own work place and crossing his own friends to do so.
Describing Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy as dense doesn't seem complicated enough. The first hour of the monster mystery moves at a sloth's pace trickling out information like the tedious drips of a leaky faucet. The talent on display is undeniable but the characters Smiley included are so cold that a connection can never be made. TTSS sporadically jumps around from past to present timelines without any indication: a tactic that proves especially confusing when scenes play out in reoccurring locations. It's not until halfway through that the movie decides to kick into high gear Smiley's search for a culprit finally becoming clear enough to thrill. A film that takes its time is one thing but Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy does so without any edge or hook.
What the movie lacks in coherency it makes up for in style and thespian gravitas. Director Tomas Alfredson has assembled some of the finest British performers working today and they turn the script's inaccessible spy jargon into poetry. Firth stands out as the group's suave slimeball a departure from his usual nice guy roles. Hardy assures us he's the next big thing once again as the agency's resident moppet a lover who breaks down after a romantic fling uncovers horrifying truth. Oldman is given the most difficult task of the bunch turning the reserved contemplative Smiley into a real human. He half succeeds—his observational slant in the beginning feels like an extension of the movie's bigger problems but once gets going in the second half of the film he's quite a bit of fun.
Alfredson constructs Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy like a cinematic architect each frame dripping with perfectly kitschy '70s production design and camera angles that make the spine tingle. He creates paranoia through framing similar to the Coppola's terrifying The Conversation but unlike that film TTSS doesn't have the characters or story to match. The movie strives to withhold information and succeeds—too much so. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy wants us to solve a mystery with George Smiley but it never clues us in to exactly why we should want to.
We know a few tidbits about the slew of new characters that will appear on Season 6 of Dexter, but Showtime finally released a little featurette that gives us a little more. We meet the highly anticipated religious fanatic duo, Travis (Colin Hanks) and Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos); rehabilitated killer Brother Sam (Mos Def, or Yasiin once we hit 2012); Bastisa's little sister and Dexter's new nanny, Jamie (Aimee Garcia); and Miami Metro's Chicago import, Mike Anderson (Billy Brown) who butts heads with Deb immediately.
Season 6 premieres Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9/8c on Showtime, but until then, let the familiar tinkering Dexter theme music quel your thirst for more episodes. This season's going to be good.

This Friday, Disney’s Prom hits theaters in hopes of reminding us all of the magic of the big dance. While the film is about many different couples getting ready for the big dance, we find one, central couple who manages to deliver the one glaring, unrealistic teen romcom stereotype we can’t manage to shake (and for the most part, we don’t want to): the sensitive, brooding bad boy.
In Prom, the brooder is none other than Jesse (Thomas McDonell), a motorcycle riding, long-haired, ne’er-do-well sentenced to the Prom committee for missing class. Naturally, he butts heads with blonde-haired do-gooder, Nova (Aimee Teegarden), but it’s not long before the romantic sparks are flying. We girls – and a few boys here and there – are always suckers for the romantic bad boy type; we know it’s nothing new, but we still eat it up. But just how long has this fantasy man been a part of our onscreen vocabulary? A really, really long time. Here are the guys you can blame for today’s Jesses and other stubble-riddled, lovable bad boys.
Jim Stark from Rebel Without A Cause (1955)
Here we have the original bad boy played by the real life poster boy for Hollywood bad boys. James Dean’s Jim Stark is what you’d call a text book example: he’s got trouble at home, he gets in fights with the kids at school, he smokes cigarettes, he rides a motorcycle, he’s got the smolder. Plus, he’s got that whole heart of gold thing going on. It’s no wonder he spawned so many characters of his ilk.
Danny Zuko from Grease (1978)
At least when it comes to Grease, they attempt to tell us what Danny Zuko really is. Sure, “Summer Nights” is fun to sing and all, but you can’t ignore the stark contrast between Danny’s line “We made out under the dock” and Sandy’s version of the story, “We stayed out ‘till 10 o’clock.” Danny’s a dog, just like every other guy, but of course, somewhere deep down inside he really cares about Sandy and ends up wearing the lame varsity sweater. Now that’s love.
John Bender from The Breakfast Club (1985)
We could probably make our entire list from just John Hughes movies, but we’ll stick with the quintessential brooding young man, John Bender. He owes his entire existence to James Dean. He’s essentially the 1980s version; he’s got a bad home life, he’s a regular in detention, and he’s got a complete disregard for others until he wants to kiss Molly Ringwald.
Cry-Baby from Cry-Baby (1990)
Alright, so this John Waters character is really aiming to poke fun at the stereotypical bad boy, and boy does he hit the nail on the head. Greasy hair: check. Motorcycle: check. Secret talent: check. Leather jacket: check. Irresistible smolder: check. Plus, and here’s the clincher: he’s got that single, sensitive tear thing going on. Sensitive and dangerous? Sigh.
Patrick Verona from 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Well, in Patrick’s case, the tales of his bad boy lifestyle are greatly exaggerated, but he still counts. He’s just bad enough to keep up with Kat’s shrew-like tendencies (because the movie is based on The Taming of the Shrew), you know the typical underage drinker and occasional smoker who’s just corrupt enough to date a girl for money, but sweet enough to risk detention to serenade her once he falls in love with her.
Landon Carter from A Walk to Remember (2002)
This is a tough one because – spoiler – Mandy Moore’s character, Jamie, is terminally ill. But the part of the story we need to focus on is the fact that Landon, who spent most of his days wreaking havoc and getting drunk in the small North Carolina town where the story takes place, gets forced into performing in the school play with Jamie where he’s reformed through the power of the theater and falls madly in love with her. It’s a sweet, sad story, but it’s still an important part of the bad boy fabric.
Edward Cullen from Twilight (2008)
I didn’t want to include this sparkly vampire, but I have to admit he belongs on here. He’s bad because he’s a freaking vampire who can’t get too frisky because he might bite his lady love (hello, GIANT metaphor). He also rides a motorcycle. And he broods…a lot.
Hollywood got through the first weekend of the new year in slightly better shape than studio insiders expected.
It took just $11.5 million to put Columbia's "Stuart Little" in first place, making it the weekend's only Top Five film to crack double digits. Lackluster tracking scores last week had suggested that the new year might kick off with none of the Top Five films doing better than single-digit grosses.
Columbia's PG-rated family comedy held on to the top spot in its fourth week, still laughing with an estimated $11.5 million (-28%) at 2,979 theaters (+79 theaters, $3,806 per theater). Its total is approximately $95.6 million. Directed by Rob Minkoff, "Stuart Little" stars Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie and Jonathan Lipnicki.
"It'll hit $100 million either Friday or Saturday of next week," Sony Pictures Releasing President Jeff Blake said Sunday morning. "With the holiday week, we won't do far from this figure for the four days. And there are no other kids' pictures coming in until Feb. 11 (Buena Vista/Disney's animated "The Tigger Movie").
"The hard part is getting them (family films) going. Once a picture like this starts rolling, it adds up pretty quick if everything goes well. We're thrilled. We're thinking (it will get to about) $130 million, at this point in time, somewhere in that range."
"Stuart Little" stands to turn into a franchise for Sony. "I know they're working hard at 'Stuart Little II.' And I think that's effort well spent," Blake said.
Paramount's R-rated drama "The Talented Mr. Ripley" moved up one notch to No. 2 in its third week of release with a respectable estimated $9.8 million (-21%) at 2,316 theaters (+7 theaters, $4,231 per theater). (Earlier estimates last week placed it at No. 5, then No. 2 and finally at No. 3.) Its total is approximately $54.6 million. Written and directed by Anthony Minghella ("The English Patient"), it stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett.
"Ripley" appears to be a prime candidate for Oscar nominations, having received five Golden Globe nominations -- best picture/drama, best actor/drama (Damon), best supporting actor ( Law), best director (Minghella) and best score (Gabriel Yared).
"I think this one really depends on the (Oscar) nominations," Paramount Distribution President Wayne Lewellen said Sunday morning. "I've got it at $80-90 million. But if we get (Oscar nominations for) Best Picture, Director and, maybe, one of the actors and, of course, if we win something, it could get to $100 million (or more).
"With a picture like this, it can be very helpful."
Asked who the audience for "Ripley" is, Lewellen replied, "It's older females, primarily, but obviously they bring the men with them. It's more female than male.
"But it's playing pretty well across the board."
Warner Bros. and Castle Rock Entertainment's R-rated prison death row drama "The Green Mile" was a close third in its fifth week, up one notch with an estimated $9.7 million (-17%) at 2,678 theaters (-197 theaters; $3,622 per theater). Its total is approximately $91.3 million.
Written and directed by Frank Darabont ("The Shawshank Redemption", it stars Tom Hanks and Michael Clarke Duncan. Where will "Mile" get to in domestic theaters? "Probably $130 million," Warner Bros. Distribution President Dan Fellman said Sunday morning.
Warner Bros.' R-rated drama "Any Given Sunday" rose one peg to fourth place in its third week with an estimated $9.02 million (-23%) at 2,505 theaters (theater count unchanged, $3,599 per theater). Its total is approximately $59.5 million. Directed by Oliver Stone, it stars Al Pacino, Dennis Quaid, Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz.
Where is "Sunday" heading in domestic theaters?
"It just is going to depend on the next few weeks -- somewhere between $80-100 million," Warners' Fellman said.
Rounding out the Top Five was DreamWorks' PG-rated sci-fi fantasy comedy "Galaxy Quest," up one peg in its third week with a surprisingly strong estimated $8.3 million (-14%) at 2,450 theaters (+8 theaters; $3,388 per theater). Its total is approximately $38.8 million, heading for $60 million to $70 million in domestic theaters. Directed by Dean Parisot, it stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman.
Buena Vista/Disney and Pixar's animated blockbuster "Toy Story 2" finished sixth in its eighth week with a still jolly estimated $7.5 million (-39%) at 2,752 theaters (-350 theatres, $2,733 per theater). Its total is approximately $220.1 million, heading for a domestic theatrical total of $260 million to $270 million. Directed by John Lasseter, it features the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kelsey Grammer, Don Rickles, Jim Varney, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Annie Potts, Wayne Knight, Laurie Metcalf, Estelle Harris and R. Lee Ermey.
"It is now the second-highest-grossing animated film in our history (after 'The Lion King')," Buena Vista Distribution President Chuck Viane said Sunday morning. "And it's the third-highest-grossing picture we ever released -- behind 'Lion King' and 'Sixth Sense.'"
Looking ahead, Viane said, "Based on this, we'll probably be at $228-$230 million by the time we come out of the Martin Luther King weekend. And then it'll just go and go until it's over."
New Line's R-rated drama "Magnolia" went wide in its fourth week, placing seventh with a promising estimated $6.57 million at 1,034 theaters (+1,025 theatres, $6,359 per theater). Its total is approximately $7.5 million.
"Magnolia's" per-theater average was the highest for any film playing in wide release. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, its ensemble cast is headed by Tom Cruise, William H. Macy, Jason Robards and Julianne Moore.
"Magnolia" received two Golden Globe nominations, including best supporting actor (Cruise) and original song ("Save Me," music and lyrics by Aimee Mann).
"We're happy," New Line Executive Vice President, Distribution, David Tuckerman said Sunday morning. "Some people are going to have us (estimated) lower. The difference is the last three weeks -- our second Sunday was bigger than the Saturday that weekend, and the Sunday the first weekend was 90% of the Saturday, and the Sunday the third weekend was over 90% of the Saturday.
"So everybody's figuring us at like sixtysome percent. Sunday should be almost what Saturday is (for this film)."
Like other three-hour films, "Magnolia" tends to do well on Sundays because people have the time available that day to see something that long.
"You have to make a commitment to see a three-hour movie," Tuckerman said.
Who is the audience for "Magnolia"?
"I sat last night and watched it in Santa Monica," Tuckerman said. "You're basically getting the mid-20s and above. Both (males and females). We didn't do exit polls the first three weeks because we figured we got (Anderson's) fans. We're doing them tonight, so we'll be smarter (Monday)."
Asked if people like the film, Tuckerman said, "They come out stunned. Half of them love it, and half of them hate it. And then they talk about it the next day. The ones that hated it talk about it -- and you can tell they've changed (their opinion)."
Will New Line go wider with the film?
"I think we're going to wait to see what next weekend brings," he said. "I have to tell you, every market that this picture opened in, there's huge pockets of strength. The 'white bread' towns didn't work as well. But within those markets (there is strength). Seattle didn't look good, then one of the best runs in the country came out of Seattle. It's really strange. In Canada, they love it."
Buena Vista/Touchstone's "Bicentennial Man" was eighth in its fourth week with a quiet estimated $5.2 million (-37%) at 2,612 theaters (-155 theate s, $1,992 per theater). Its total is approximately $47.1 million. Directed by Chris Columbus, it stars Robin Williams.
Buena Vista/Touchstone's R-rated youth-appeal comedy "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" was ninth in its fifth week with a less funny estimated $5 million (-13%) at 2,066 theaters (-96 theaters, $2,403 per theater). Its total is approximately $54 million. Directed by Mike Mitchell, it stars Rob Schneider.
"I have hesitated to say this, but I think now it's probably a $70 million picture," BV's Viane said. "The one picture we would like to emulate is 'Ace Ventura,' which did $72 million. The minute we hit $60 million (after Martin Luther King weekend), that's the number we'll be chasing."
Rounding out the Top 10 was Universal's PG-13-rated drama "Snow Falling On Cedars," which went wide in its third week with an unexciting estimated $4.01 million at 1,150 theaters (+1,147 theaters, $3,490 per theater). Its total is approximately $4.2 million. Directed by Scott Hicks ("Shine"), it stars Ethan Hawke, James Cromwell, Richard Jenkins, Youki Kudoh, James Rebhorn, Sam Shepard, Rick Yune and Max von Sydow.
Last weekend saw no new arrivals in wide or high-profile platform release.
Last weekend saw no national sneak previews.
On the expansion front, last weekend saw Miramax's PG-13-rated drama "The Cider House Rules" go wider in its fifth week, placing 13th with an OK ESTIMATED $3.28 million at 816 theaters (+484 theaters, $4,013 per theater). Its total is approximately $8.4 million. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom, it stars Tobey Maguire, Charlize Theron, Paul Rudd and Michael Caine.
"With the addition of 484 screens this weekend, we only dropped 14% on a per-screen basis," Miramax Senior Vice President, Marketing, David Kaminow said Sunday morning. "We were hoping for $3,000 a screen this weekend, and the fact that we did $4,000 is great. Even more encouraging are theaters that are in their third, fourth and fifth week, dwelling on this. It's taken a little time for the movie to get its legs, but (that's what we're seeing now)."
Kaminow pointed to a number of examples, including, "in New York, the Angelika, in its fifth week, is up 73%. In L.A., in Century City, we're up 136% in Week 5. The Sunset Five (in West Hollywood) is up 53% in Week 5. The Lido in Newport Beach is up 30% in Week 5. In Pasadena, the Playhouse is up 16% in Week 3.
"This is what's going on around the country. The movie's really taking hold and receiving great word of mouth."
Universal's R-rated drama "The Hurricane" expanded in its second week, placing 14th with an encouraging estimated $2.45 million at 159 theaters (+148 theaters, $15,405 per theater). Its total is approximately $3.1 million. Directed by Norman Jewison, it stars Denzel Washington as wrongly imprisoned boxing champion Rubin "Hurricane" Carter.
"Hurricane," which is generating Oscar buzz, received three Golden Globe nominations -- best picture, best actor/drama (Washington) and best director (Jewison).
Columbia's R-rated drama "The End of the Affair" expanded in its sixth week, placing 18th with an unromantic estimated $0.65 million at 92 theaters (+34 theaters, $7,065 per theater). Its total is approximately $2.4 million. Directed by Neil Jordan, it stars Ralph Fiennes, Julianne Moore and Stephen Rea.
"We're intending to go wide to about 700 or so theaters on Jan. 21," Sony's Jeff Blake said Sunday. "We're certainly performing (as) one of the better limiteds consistently, so hopefully we'll be ready to go on Golden Globe weekend."
Key films -- those grossing more than $500,000 for the weekend - took in approximately $93.79 million last weekend, up approximately 11.04% from $84.46 million for the comparable weekend last year.
Last weekend's key film gross was down approximately 15.4% from the $108.31 million that key films took in during the prior weekend.
Last year, Buena Vista's third week of "A Civil Action" was first with $15.16 million at 1,802 theaters ($8,415 per theater); and Universal's third weekend of "Patch Adams" was second with $12.69 million at 2,770 theaters, $4,580 per theater). The top two films one year ago grossed $27.9 million. This year, the top two films grossed an estimated $21.3 million.
STUDIO MARKET SHARES
Based on business by key films, last weekend's top six distributors were the following:
