Wasted: crude, stoner TV comedy with a heart

25 July 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 26, 2016

E4’s new comedy, starting tonight, about a group of West Country 20-somethings boasts a star turn from Sean Bean

Looking back now, the most outlandish part of brilliantly inventive 1999 sitcom Spaced isn’t a movie parody, cutaway gag or eccentric character, but the idea that you could rent a fully furnished two-bedroom flat in Zone Two for ninety quid a week. If Tim Bisley and Daisy Steiner were house-hunting in London today, they’d be forced to pack up their Gillian Anderson posters and typewriter and head back to their respective hometowns to crash on a mate’s sofa.

That’s the fate of Kent (Dylan Edwards) in the first episode of Wasted, a new UK comedy series starting tonight on E4.

Having failed to make it as a Bristol-based DJ, Kent goes back to the village of Neston Berry and to the bosom of his »

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Like most films made for purely financial reasons, »

The film will also be available as part of the special edition of Final Fantasy Xv on September 30th. Watch it below…

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. »

Watch: Fan-Made 15th Anniversary Trailer for 'Fellowship of the Ring'

20 July 2016 9:55 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You will unite, or you will fall." The first film in the beloved Lord of the Rings trilogy first hit theaters December of 2001, nearly 15 years ago. To celebrate the anniversary, Miguel Branco edited together a brand new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and it's rather wonderful. This is one of my all-time favorite films (only topped by The Return of the King) and I still remember seeing it in theaters on a cold, snowy night in December. Elijah Wood stars as Frodo, with Sean Astin as Samwise, and Ian McKellen as Gandalf; including Sean Bean, Cate Blanchett, Viggo Mortensen, Orlando Bloom, John Rhys-Davies, Liv Tyler, Hugo Weaving, Christopher Lee, Ian Holm, and many others. This trailer should make you smile, and put a tear in your eye. Hard to believe it has been 15 years. Here's the fan-made 15th anniversary trailer for The Lord of the Rings »

Final Fantasy Xv Universe Trailer Showcases Square’s Grand Vision In Motion

7 July 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cinematic universes continue to be all the rage in Hollywood – intricate, multi-layered juggernauts that weave together numerous story strands and characters under the one narrative umbrella. It’s a strategy that has been adopted by everyone from Marvel to 20th Century Fox, but soon, Square Enix will be offering its own spin on the shared universe formula with Final Fantasy Xv.

A Jrpg ten years in the making, the Japanese publisher is set to go all-in on Ffxv, pumping out a CG movie and four-part Brotherhood animated series to ramp up excitement for the game’s launch in September. “The main reason for creating this universe is to provide many avenues of enjoyment before Ffxv is released so you have the richest possible experience when you play Ffxv,” reads the video description.

Speaking of which, the third episode of Brotherhood is available from today, July 7 on Square Enix’s dedicated YouTube channel. »

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Sean Bean Totally Spoiled Jon Snow's Backstory Years Ago and We Didn't Even Notice

29 June 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We're a bunch of idiots. We've all been speculating and theorizing and freaking out about who Jon Snow's parents really are on Game of Thrones, and (part of) the answer has been sitting right under our noses the whole time. And by "under our noses," we mean "on reddit." A year ago. Sean Bean, who played the tragically honorable Ned Stark on the HBO series, did a reddit Ama last year to answer questions about his roles in Lord of the Rings, National Treasure and of course, on Game of Thrones. Bean's Ama has been unearthed after the season-six finale, and for good reason. He dropped a spoiler on us and we were too blind to see it! Someone asked him a question »

HBO Just Confirmed Who Jon Snow's Father Is on Game of Thrones

29 June 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When it comes to Jon Snow, [Character Name Redacted], you are the father! Game of Thrones fans hoping to avoid any possible spoilers after the season six finale, look away now! Why? Because HBO just revealed who Jon Snow's (Kit Harington) real father is after his birth mother was confirmed in the June 26 finale. In a flashback to the Tower of Joy, a popular fan theory was proven right as Lyanna Stark, Ned's (Sean Bean), was proven to be Jon's mother, making Ned promise to look after her son on her deathbed. However, Jon's birth father was not confirmed in the scene, but many fans believed it to be Rhaegar Targaryen, who had abducted Lyanna after she was engaged to marry Robert »

Game of Thrones Star on Explosive Finale Death: I Was the Victim of 'Incompetence'

26 June 2016 7:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday's season 6 finale of Game of Thrones. It wouldn't be a Game of Thrones finale with at least one shocking death. Sunday's season 6 finale delivered on that tradition - and then some, with Cersei (Lena Headey) orchestrating the destruction of the Sept of Baelor with some well-placed wildfire. In one fell swoop, Cersei eliminated many of her rivals, including her daughter-in-law Margaery (Natalie Dormer), who figured out something was up but was not allowed to do anything about it. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly's James Hibberd, Dormer opened up about her surprise exit from the HBO hit. »

The Sean Bean narrated trailer, shows off some of the new additions they've made in the VIth installment while honoring the games that came before.  They even tease that an interstellar portion of the game could be possible.  However, it remains to be seen if Civilization VI becomes Eve.

21 June 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Principal photography has commenced on Dark River, the new feature film from The Selfish Giant and The Arbor writer-director Clio Barnard, who has assembled a cast that includes Ruth Wilson (The Affair), Mark Stanley (Game of Thrones) and Sean Bean (The Martian). Here’s the official synopsis…

Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns to her home village for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy to the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Once there she is confronted by a brother (Mark Stanley) she barely recognises, worn down by years of trying to keep the farm going, who is naturally hostile to her arrival and her claim over the tenancy. Their dispute unearths traumatic memories for Alice, memories which have remained dormant for years but which now threaten both of their futures.

Dark River is a visceral, haunting and lyrical story and we »
