Sundance 2016 Interview: Filmmaker Rich Fox Breaks Down His Doc
At the big movie cinemas, January is seen as more of a dumping ground for fluffy and forgettable genre fare. But that’s exactly why events also held in January like the iconic Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah are so important – they pride themselves on showing sincerely scary stuff that the studios are afraid too.

Brandon Routh Returns To The DC Universe In 'Legends Of Tomorrow
Brandon Routh first entered the DC Comics universe when he was cast as Superman in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns. While he's since passed the cape to the current star Henry Cavill, Routh got a second shot in the role of Ray Palmer, better known as Atom, who first appeared on Arrow, made his way to The Flash, and is now one of the main characters of the new series DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

We sat down with Routh at New York Comic Con to talk about taking on another DC character and if there's anything he brought from his Superman stint that's helped him in his portrayal of Atom.

Arthur Darvill Talks Going From 'Doctor Who' To 'DC's Legends Of
Arthur Darvill is best known to TV fans as Rory, the boyfriend (and later husband) to Amy Pond - and then one of The Doctor's companions - on the BBC's long-running sci-fi show Doctor Who. But Darvill made his way into American television this season, and now stars in a vastly different role this season as Rip Hunter on the latest DC Comics series, DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

We spoke to the actor at New York Comic Con to discuss how working on one big genre franchise compares to another, and what his thoughts are about the time travelling (and hopefully time-changing) that Rip is up to.

'The Librarians': John Larroquette Discusses Season 2
With Thanksgiving behind us, TNT's The Librarians is back in action tomorrow. That makes it the perfect time to bring out our last New York Comic Con interview, in which John Larroquette talks about the history of Jenkins and what's ahead for the crusty caretaker in the future.

"Jenkins at first is saddled with a big problem and it runs through a lot of the series," he explained. "Even though the library finally has returned from the void, it's sick. It's ill. The brooms are in wrong places, things have disappeared, its a mess.

"For a lot of the season he thinks it's his fault - that he h...

The adventure of TNT's The Librarians continues tomorrow, and so do our interviews with the cast from New York Comic Con. We sat down with cast members Lindy Booth (pictured above) and John Kim to discuss where their characters, Cassandra and Ezekiel, find themselves in Season 2.
