The show has now changed its name to Second Chance, perhaps to distance itself from the upcoming Victor Frankenstein movie and/or ITV’s Sean Bean-starring drama The Frankenstein Chronicles. Second Chance was also called Lookinglass, at one stage.
Second Chance’s plot elements remain the same, though. Here’s the newly released synopsis…
“Seventy-five-year-old Jimmy Pritchard (Philip Baker Hall) is a shell of his former self. A drinker, a womanizer and a father who always put work before family, Pritchard was forced to resign as L.A. County Sheriff for corrupt conduct more than a decade ago. »

1.3 All The Lost Children
“What would we not do to defeat death, Mr Marlott? Might we not defy God’s laws in order to be reunited with those we love?” asks The Frankenstein Chronicles’ Mary Shelley this week, under some gentle interrogation regarding the murdered, mutilated and missing children in the capital. At this stage in his investigation, Marlott has an intriguing list of leads, taking in literary legends like Shelley – still a controversial figure in the nineteenth century, having been accused of blasphemy in the creation of Frankenstein (there’s thanks for you) – and lowly grave robbers like Pritty, still on the run after escaping the watch of deputy Mr Nightingale last week.
That Marlott has so much to pick through, so many pieces to puzzle over, »
While we get our introduction to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her own solo movie is coming in 2017, and to mark the start of shooting, Gadot has shared through Twitter a new image of DC Comics' warrior princess. Really digging the shot of Big Ben in the background. The photo also coincides with a full cast list, that also includes Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David, Thewlis, Ewen Bremmer, Said Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis. Looks like the rumours of Nicole Kidman as Hippolyta, and Sean Bean and Eva Green pulling double villain duties were just that. Released: June 23rd 2017 »

London, 1827 – Day
Officer John Marlott and his boss Sir Robert Peel are standing by the capital’s latest crime scene: another mutilated and stitched body has washed up on the bank of the Thames.
Sir Robert Peel
I don’t want any mistakes on this case, Marlott. I’m gonna be watching you so close you’ll think we’ve been stitched together.
Peel stalks away, leaving Marlott gazing into the grey city gloom.
Okay, Sir Robert…
Marlott turns and puts on an era-appropriate hat.
The 19th century London locale still doesn’t look like CSI: Miami’s beaches, and John Marlott – seeking the one “out there doin’ murders” – sure ain’t Horatio Caine. It’s all grit in this cop show/Frankenstein riff, »
Over the weekend, the first set photo surfaced from Wonder Woman, featuring co-stars Chris Pine and Saïd Taghmaoui, who both appeared to be wearing period costumes, which seemingly confirmed rumors that part of this movie will be set in World War I. This rumor, which surfaced last month, claimed Wonder Woman will be set during three different eras, one of which is on Wonder Woman's homeland of Themyscira in an unidentified time period, with another portion of the story set in World War I and the majority of the movie set in present day. The photo clearly showed early 1900s costumes for both actors, so does this mean that we will only get to see Steve Trevor in this setting? According to a new rumor from Heroic Hollywood, that isn't the case. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

As the world continues to mourn the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris on Nov. 13, more and more TV is making adjustments to its regularly-scheduled programming out of a sign of respect. TNT's Legends is the latest series to shift its schedule, with the network announcing Monday they'd postponed tonight's episode. "As a result of the recent tragic events in Paris, tonight's originally scheduled episode of Legends has been postponed," they said. "Our thoughts and condolences are with the victims and their families." The pulled episode, entitled "The Legend of Curtis Ballard," follows Sean Bean's Martin as he searches for Kate (Aisling Francoisi) in Paris, certain »
According to Batman-News.com, we have our first look of actor Chris Pine ("Star Trek Beyond") in full costume as Steve Trevor in director Patty Jenkins "Wonder Woman" standalone film starring Gal Gadot ("Fast & Furious 6") in the title role. Filming for Patty Jenkins "Wonder Woman" will commence this month in the UK which is slated for a June 23rd, 2017 release date.
The picture in question also confirms the casting of French actor Saïd Taghmaoui ("American Hustle", "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra"), as the photo came from the actors Facebook account. Taghmaou appears to have a substantial supporting role opposite to Pine's Steve Trevor as the actor posted a photo of his crew chair next to Chris Pine's and Gal Gadot's.
Pine and Taghmaoui's costumes in the photo appear to be from the World War II era as the plot for "Wonder Woman" is rumored to take »

20 years later, Pierce Brosnan's first Bond movie is still his best.
After a six-year absence from the big screen, 007 returned with the very-90s, but very action-packed, "GoldenEye." Despite headlines in the press asking if the world needed James Bond anymore, audiences seemed to think it did -- they helped the film become a huge hit at the box office, spawning three more films for Brosnan and a popular Nintendo game.
In honor of the film's 20th (?!) anniversary on November 17, here are 20 things you may not know about one of 007's most popular missions.
1. Legal issues prevented MGM from getting a new Bond movie out after the tepid reaction to 1989's "License to Kill," grounding 007 for six years -- the longest wait in-between films in the franchise's history.

Not quite sure what we’d do if we were suddenly deprived, historically, of the fact of early 19th-century London. If sex was invented in 1963, murder was apparently invented in about 1826, seemingly amid the smoggy reaches of the Isle of Dogs and the treacherous pilings of Borough and Tobacco Dock: all sucking silt, yellow lights lazily swung, tolls of heavy bells seasoned with fog and heartache. Today there are surely something like 84 boatmen, complete with requisite humps, joke Rada speech impediments and foul clay pipes, employed exclusively by ITV drama location scouts to poke about the nether reaches of the Great Wen in the »

Earlier this week, we reported that Wonder Woman producer Geoff Johns had arrived in the U.K., along with set photographer Clay Enos, sparking speculation that production has already begun on Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated superhero adaptation. Gal Gadot also shared a photo from one of her workout sessions, which also hinted that principal photography has either started, or will commence very soon. Collider recently spoke with producer Charles Roven, who confirmed that production will start on Wonder Woman at the end of this month in both the U.K. and Italy, with Justice League Part 1 set to start filming in the U.K. early next year.
"We're actually gonna start shooting [Wonder Woman] towards the end of [November]... We are shooting in the U.K. and in Italy. We're making most of Wonder Woman [in the U.K.] and we're also making most of Justice League there, Jl One... We're definitely gonna be shooting Part One »
Production on both the solo "Wonder Woman" film and "Justice League Part One" are both being lined up shortly.
Speaking with Collider, producer Charles Roven confirmed that production on "Wonder Woman" begins later this month with filming to take place in the UK and Italy. That film will be immeditely followed by "Justice League: Part One" which will kick off in the first half of next year:
Patty Jenkins directs the "Wonder Woman" with Gal Gadot reprising her role as the Amazonian warrior opposite Chris Pine and Nicole Kidman. Both Sean Bean and Eva Green have also been rumored for that project which opens June 23rd 2017.

He described his character - Inspector John Marlott – as “an ordinary man who has been thrown into that elite world and who challenges these people. He’s disgusted by a cover-up and he won’t give in to it.”
Most interestingly, Bean also talked up the political parallels between the show and real life:
“There's a lot about this story that resonates today […] From the social issues to the cover-ups. It all sounds familiar and nothing’s changed. »
Back in September, producer Deborah Snyder confirmed that production on Wonder Woman was set to begin in November, although an exact date was not given. While it still isn't ultimately clear when principal photography may begin, it seems that it may happen soon, if we're to believe cryptic tweets from producer Geoff Johns. On Monday, the producer tweeted to director Patty Jenkins, stating "It's The Day". And yesterday, he sent out a photo from "Ricksmansworth England," which is apparently "very very nice." On Sunday, set photographer Clay Enos sent a photo from his flight while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, and while he doesn't specifically state that he's going to London to work on Wonder Woman, it certainly seems possible. If that wasn't enough, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, released a photo from her morning workout earlier today.
Do all of these clues mean that Wonder Woman is shooting soon with production already underway? »

1.1 A World Without God
Frankenstein’s monster has never been quick on his feet, so, fittingly missing Halloween by a week, The Frankenstein Chronicles slowly shuffles its way onto ITV Encore. With parts harvested from history, fiction, and film, this Frankie follows in the footsteps of Sky’s Penny Dreadful and ITV’s recent Jekyll And Hyde – so far, so 'TV Execs are still mid-ransack over at the Waterstones’* Gothic fiction aisles' – but what has this show got in abundance that those others were lacking?

Last year, despite the fact that the first season of Legends did very poorly in the ratings, TNT renewed it for a second season anyway. The producers have given the series a creative overhaul in hopes of attracting more viewers. Will it work or will the changes alienate the viewers they had? Cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Based on the award-winning book by spy novelist Robert Littell, Legends follows Martin Odum (Sean Bean), an undercover agent who can transform himself into a different person for each case. Others in the cast this season are Winter Ave Zoli, Steve Kazee, Aisling Franciosi, Kelly Overton, Klara Issova, and Ralph Brown. Last season castmember Morris Chestnut will guest star in several episodes.

If you took a gander at my predictions at the end of last week, you might have noticed that the race for Best Picture (as well as Best Director) might very well be coming down to Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight or Ridley Scott’s The Martian. Right now, Spotlight is very much the frontrunner, but The Martian has been exceeding expectations all season long, so is it time to really consider if Scott’s film can go all the way? In my eyes, yes…even if it likely has a better chance to pull an upset in Director than in Picture. This movie is in it to win it, regardless. Almost $200 million at the domestic box office later, I have to imagine that most of you have seen the flick already, but just in case, here’s my summary again. The Martian centers astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon), who sees »

One of the most famous memes about an actor in recent years has been about the number of times Sean Bean has died on screen. At one point, someone made a reel showing off the various ways his characters have met their demise - a clip which quickly became a viral sensation.
Now out doing promotion on TNT's "Legends," the actor has spoken with The Radio Times about being known as a guy who dies frequently on the screen. Turns out he's mostly amused by it all:
"I have died quite a few times to be fair. I've seen that reel of clips – it sounds a bit macabre, but I watched that back, and I'd forgotten some of the scenes I'd died in… (I don't) take it to heart... For some reason, the parts I play, like Boromir or Ned Stark, have a life online long afterwards. I keep seeing, »

We’ll have to treat all of this as a rumor for now of course, but Heroic Hollywood reckon they’ve uncovered some very interesting information regarding the motivations of the villains in Patty Jenkins’ solo Wonder Woman movie, which is scheduled to begin shooting in London very soon.
We’ve already heard that Ares (possibly Sean Bean) and Circe (maybe Eva Green) would serve as the main antagonist in the film (though this is still unconfirmed), but now we might just have details on what drives them, and how they come into conflict with Gal Gadot’s Princess Diana.

According to the site, Ares will use Circe to draw out Wonder Woman and keep her busy while he attempts to get his hands on an Amazonian sword which would grant him unlimited power, and allow him to take over Olympus. Ares, the God of War, »

New details about the apparent plot of the solo "Wonder Woman" movie at Warner Bros. Pictures have arrived - mostly regarding the villains Ares and Circe in the film.
Potential Spoilers Ahead
According to Heroic Hollywood, Ares will serve as the main villain and uses Circe as a pawn to get what he wants: an ancient Amazonian sword that could allow him to take over Olympus.
His motive is to start World War III in order to feed off of the energy generated by the massive amount of death and destruction that would result, giving him enough power to gain possession of the sword.
Circe keeps Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) busy and even becomes a Chimera in the final battle. Batman makes a cameo and will confront Wonder Woman about what happened when he meets her in 'Dawn of Justice' during which Diana »
