Hannibal season 3: new featurette and trailer

22 May 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This new Hannibal season 3 featurette discusses a "blank slate" for the show and the introduction of more Red Dragon elements...

Today we have a featurette and a trailer to share from season 3 of Hannibal, where more parallels to the Thomas Harris books are expected.

The original Red Dragon novel has always had an influence on the show, of course, but now Richard Armitage has been cast as Francis Dolarhyde - the key non-Lecter serial killer character from the original book (played by Ralph Fiennes in the 2002 Brett Ratner Red Dragon movie).

Here's the featurette, which includes Armitage discussing his role...

And here's the trailer, which is worth watching just to hear Mads Mikkelsen speaking French...

Hannibal returns on Thursday the 4th of June on NBC, in America. The UK return, via Sky Living, is on Wednesday the 10th of June.

Why '500 Questions' is the trivia experience TV needs

21 May 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I am a game show zealot. I believe in the umber glow of Chuck Woolery and the sneering capabilities of Paul Lynde. I'm also a rabid fan of trivia; I was on "Jeopardy!" a couple weeks ago and Gsn's "The Chase" before that. Every time network TV rolls out a new primetime trivia-based game show, I'm listening and hopeful and there -- and I have three spring-loaded requests: 1) Please, Jesus, anything but more "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"-type lighting; 2) Good lord, no more multiple choice questions; 3) Make me love you, new show. I want to love you. Embrace me, you child. Last year we got the Ryan Seacrest-hosted "Million Second Quiz," a multiple-choice bonanza with "Millionaire" lighting that was tedious and unchallenging (read: not lovable). You can understand my devastation there. "500 Questions" is this year's new primetime trivia attempt. Hosted by CNN journalist Richard Quest, "500 Questions" airs »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Everything we know about Spectre including spoilers, trailers and the latest rumours

12 May 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

Daniel Craig will make his 007 comeback later this year with the release of Spectre, a continuation of the story started in Sam Mendes's Skyfall. Craig has re-energised the Bond franchise since his debut in 2006's Casino Royale, and all signs point towards Spectre being another worthy addition to the series.

Digital Spy runs down everything you need to know about Spectre ahead of its cinema debut on October 23.

A threat from James Bond's past will return

It's all in the title. Crime syndicate Spectre (Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), headed up by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, regularly attempted world domination in Sean Connery's '60s outings, but they've been absent for decades due to an ongoing legal dispute with Thunderball co-creator Kevin McClory.

McClory passed away in 2006 and his Bond rights were eventually regained by Eon/MGM, »

Elizabeth Wilson, a character actress who appeared in films including “The Graduate” and “9 to 5” but also had a long career on the stage, died on Saturday in New Haven, Conn.. She was 94.

In a career that spanned almost seven decades, she won a Tony in 1972 for her portrayal of a Vietnam veteran’s emotionally scarred mother in David Rabe’s antiwar drama “Sticks and Bones.” She won Obie Awards for performances in “Taken in Marriage” in 1979 and “Anteroom” in 1986.

She was nominated for an Emmy for the based-on-a-true-story miniseries “Nutcracker: Money, Madness and Murder” (1987) in which she played the wealthy but helpless mother of a woman (Lee Remick) who’s plotting to kill her father.

Her best-known film performance was in the 1980 hit “9 to 5,” in which she played Roz, the office snitch and the nemesis of the workers played by Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.

If you can picture Dustin Hoffman’s mother in The Graduate, or Ralph Fiennes’ in Quiz Show, or, in her best known, if least characteristic film role as the treacherous foil to Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in 9 To 5, you can probably summon Elizabeth Wilson’s face more quickly than her name.

Time Machine: Sensational Scarlett J. in Purple

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

Dolph Lundgren Talks His and Channing Tatum's Roles in the Coens Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!'

7 May 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Even a Swedish brute like Ivan Drago -- ahem, Dolph Lundgren -- understands that when you're offered a role in a Coen brothers film, you don't turn it down, even if you feel you might be just a tiny bit out of place. "The casting was a bit of a shocker. They called me out of nowhere a few months ago," tells Lundgren of his small role in the Coens' next film, Hail, Caesar! "I'm a huge fan of theirs and I never expected to be in any Coen brothers movies, but I guess I am!" The quotes come from a recent interview with Creative Screenwriting, in which Lundgren speaks mostly of his upcoming film Skin Trade, which he wrote, but also informs us a bit about his experience on the set of the Joel and Ethan Coen's latest project. "It's a movie set in the 1950s called Hail, »

Hail Caesar! Character Details Revealed: Channing Tatum Is a Wannabe Communist

6 May 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen's next film, Hail Caesar!, has been in the works for years and will finally hit theaters February 5, 2016, but details are still scarce. We know the story revolves around a challenging day in the life of a Hollywood "fixer" who works to protect the stars of the 1950s studio system. Like all of the Coen Brothers' films, Hail Caesar! is led by an incredible ensemble cast that includes Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill. The film will also feature a cameo from action star Dolph Lundgren, who recently spoke about his time on set in an interview with Creative Screenwriting. Lundgren spilled some details about his cameo, and a little bit about Tatum's role too. It was a bit of a shocker. They called me out of nowhere a few months ago. It’s a movie »

Hail, Caesar! Will Find Channing Tatum Defecting To The Soviet Union, Dolph Lundgren Piloting A Submarine

6 May 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

No one could ever accuse the Coen Brothers of skewing predictable in their movies, and their upcoming period comedy Hail, Caesar! sounds just as bonkers and brilliant as you would hope. Dolph Lundgren, who co-stars in the pic, recently let slip some details about both his role and that of Channing Tatum’s – and what the action star had to say was highly intriguing.

Speaking with Creative Screenwriting about action movie Skin Trade (opening this Friday), Lundgren touched on his part in the movie, about a studio fixer named Eddie Mannix (George Clooney) who deals with a vast array of problems on a Hollywood backlot during one crazy day, from a knocked-up starlet to a muckraking journalist.

Lundgren is well-aware that he’s not the kind of actor you see in movies by directors like the Coen Brothers. He admitted:

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

New 'Spectre' Video Blog Reveals Fast Cars & the New Bond Henchman

30 April 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have immersed myself in James Bond lately, taking the time recently to begin diving into Ian Fleming's original novels for the first time (I'll be finishing "Casino Royale" later today) and also purchasing the "Bond 50" Blu-ray set. The goal is what will be nearly six months of features surrounding the Bond franchise leading up to the Nov. 6 global release of Spectre, the 24th Bond film in the franchise. To say I'm excited about it would be an understatement and I'm growing increasingly excited reading Fleming's origin of the character, particularly because I'm learning just how well Martin Campbell handled Casino Royale, though I'm equally anxious to return to that movie as well, but I digress... Today we have a few new pictures and a new video blog for the upcoming Spectre, this one coming from the set of the new film focusing on a car chase through the »

30 April 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Director Sam Mendes and the guys behind the next James Bond installment, Spectre, are taking advantage of the cold winter months by shooting in the mountains of Austria.

Daniel Craig – Mr. Bond himself – joined director Sam Mendes on set, and the cast and crew were kind enough to give fans an inside look behind Spectre. In the two below vlogs, Craig and Mendes are joined by 007’s new castmates, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour).

Naomi Harris, our Moneypenny as per Skyfall’s last reveal, makes a brief appearance as well. Ralph Fiennes – best known for Harry Potter or Schindler’s List, depending on your age – returns as M, taking over the reigns on MI6 from Judi DenchBen Whishaw, clad in a toque, parka, and stripped socks, also continues with his affable nerdy/hipster “thang” as our generation’s perfect Q. »
