*1/2 (out of four) There's a funny “Mr. Show” sketch in which a man and a woman don't realize that they're cheating on each other with the same man, whom they didn't believe their significant other even knew. That's also the plot of director Tom Tykwer's (“Run Lola Run”) contrived and superficial “3,” which not only expects us to take this situation seriously but also incorporates incoherent discussions of human nature and stem cell research. Sure, plenty of people have differing views on what constitutes a functional relationship and the movie accentuates its...

Here's some news about a show I'm now even more excited to see: BBC America's original drama "Copper" has found its lead actors. Tom Weston-Jones, who has starred in "MI-5," will play Irish-American copper Kevin Corcoran in the series set in 1860s New York City. Kyle Schmid ("Blood Ties," the recenetly aired "Three Inches" pilot for Syfy) stars as Robert Morehouse, Corcoran's friend and the son of a Manhattan aristocrat. Anastasia Griffith ("Royal Pains," "Damages") plays Elizabeth Haverford, whom I'm guessing is a love interest.

BBC America has given us a first look at its upcoming drama "Copper. " The teaser shows the series' main protagonist, Det. Kevin Corcoran (Tom Weston-Jones) shooting someone, pummeling a prisoner with brass knuckles, sitting in bed with what appears to be a hooker, and getting reprimanded by his boss. Obviously this copper ain't no saint. But Corcoran, an Irish-American cop working the mean streets of New York City's Five Points neighborhood in 1864, has an ax to grind: He's searching for the baddies who kidnapped his wife and killed his...

* (out of four) Hokum of monumental proportions is still hokum. Watch the 6-minute “Cloud Atlas” trailer about 30 times and you'll have an idea of what it's like to sit through this epic disaster, which never bores but never rewards attention either. Pacing the nearly three-hour film as if it were a teaser for itself, Chicago-native writers/directors Andy and Lana Wachowski (“The Matrix”) and German filmmaker Tom Tykwer (“Run Lola Run”) don't deliver a single powerful sequence or profound moment.

It didn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that BBC America would pick up "Orphan Black" for a second season. But on the heels of this week's good news for the clone conspiracy thriller, we've got to talk about the brainiest of the clones--Cosima. In the upcoming episode "Variations Under Domestication," the evo-devo student played by Tatiana Maslany (as all the clones are) gets closer to fellow University of Minnesota student Delphine (Evelyne Brochu). They met cute in last week's "Conditions of Existence," and the flirting heats...

As Jenny on FX's “The League,” Katie Aselton frequently engages in the foul-mouthed, trash-talking fantasy football obsession more commonly associated with the other, hairier half of humanity. In “Black Rock,” her second film as both star and director, the 34-year-old Aselton (“The Freebie”) also puts a female face on a traditionally male story. The thriller, opening Friday, is a genre piece about survival in the woods - but doesn't feature a bunch of buff dudes and their bubbly girlfriends.
