Keep thi’ sen calm, tha’s from Yorkshire. There’s many reasons Yorkshire is God’s Own County, and one of them is the Yorkshire pudding. None of that Aunt Bessie’s muck, we mean a Proper Yorkshire pudding. Puffed up beauties the size of your fist, dripping with oil. Yorkshire folk are a proud bunch, and a lot of people don’t get that. Well, of course they wouldn’t, they’re not from bloody Yorkshire!

Well-Timed TV Character Deaths Pay Off for Writers and Actors

16 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warning: Spoilers For “The Good Wife,” “House Of Cards,” “Scandal,” “Homeland,” “Shameless” And “Game Of Thrones” Below

The body count in primetime is rising. Key characters in high-profile dramas are dropping like flies as producers seek the ratings bump and social-media buzz that an unexpected death (or resurrection) brings. True shockers, such as the demise of Josh Charles’ Will Gardner on “The Good Wife,” pay dividends that extend long past a single episode, since they often allow writers to radically alter storylines — and provide actors with killer clips for their Emmy reels. Here are some of the biggest casualties.

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in new Jupiter Ascending still

15 April 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Total Film, we’ve got a new still from The Matrix duo Andy and Lana Wachowski’s next sci-fi offering Jupiter Ascending, which gives us a fresh look at the film’s two leads, Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) and Mila Kunis (Ted)…

Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Jupiter Ascending is set for release on July 25th, »

Channing Tatum stars as Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who arrives on Earth to track down Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), whose genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

This Wachowski Starship venture arrives in theaters this summer, and promises to be one of the most unique and original movies of the season.

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

15 April 2014 2:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

The recently installed Doctor Who producer, John Nathan-Turner, had been the Production Unit Manager on »

Things we don't admit when watching brilliant TV shows

6 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor Simon Brew 7 Apr 2014 - 06:55

Who’s that? What did she just say? Wait, he’s English? Here are the things we don’t admit when watching acclaimed TV shows…

Omission makes the world go round. Without the art of keeping things to ourselves, most social interactions would disintegrate within seconds. Too much soul-baring honesty would snap the taut bonds that keep us all from running screaming through the Toby Carvery of a Sunday lunchtime jabbing family members with corn-on-the-cob prongs. We’re a tightly wound, insular people, the British. It takes court injunctions and Jeremy Kyle to prise loose our secrets.

Every so often though, it does us good to share. It’s cathartic to confess, between friends, that we’re sometimes a little bit lacking or dim. In the spirit of honesty and self-improvement then, here are the things we’d rather not admit to »

New ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Posters

4 April 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few posters are now online for the highly-ambitious sci-fi drama, called “Jupiter Ascending,” which is directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski. The film stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, and Doona Bae.

You can chek out the posters below.

The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along — her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. »

Viral Video Chart: Game of Thrones, Putin calls Palin, and Lion King

3 April 2014 11:13 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Pharrell's Happy gets the trombone treatment, an Italian vies for a condom world record, and a baby reveal goes wrong

Calling all Game of Thrones fans! Our top video will help fill those final hours before you return to the world of Westeros with a lot of laughter. According Honest Trailer's video, the new series will show "mopey bastard" Jon Snow, imp-slapping Tyrion Lannister, and dragon-fixated queen Daenerys fighting to eventually knock Justin Bieber off the world's most uncomfortable chair. Along the way, anyone connected to Sean Bean will die, and there will be twice as many boobs as monologues. Meanwhile, if you want another humorous catch-up of the whole thing, check out College Humor's ultimate recap. And if Game of Thrones hasn't got enough power play in it, check out what happened when Vladimir Putin (aka Jimmy Fallon) calls Sarah Palin to chat about her prediction that he'd invade Ukraine. »

Justified alum David Meunier has booked a new gig. After being killed off in the FX drama last season, the actor has landed a major arc on TNT's upcoming drama Legends, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. From Homeland executive producer Howard Gordon, Legends -- which originally was developed for NBC -- follows deep-cover operative Martin Odum (Game of Thrones' Sean Bean), who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is. Meunier will play Richard Hubbard,

Bewwwwbs! Honest Trailers Takes on Game of Thrones

1 April 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Well, you knew it had to happen sooner or later. The fine folks at Honest Trailers have expanded their arrows to TV and have now taken on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Like most of Honest Trailers’ targets, this one was just asking for it. I mean, when you put Sean Bean in a movie…or, er, a TV show… Of course, it goes without saying, right? There are tons of Spoilers in this one, so if you haven’t seen all three previous seasons of “Game of Thrones” yet (with season 4 on the way very soon), you should probably avoid this little ditty. Unless, of course, you’re a glutton for punishment. Which, by the way, pretty much describes fans of George R.R. Martin’s “Ice and Fire” series of books, from which the TV show is based. You know it’s true. And oh…bewwwwwwwwwwwwbs. »

Entertainment Geekly: In praise of '24' and the perfect TV death

28 March 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses! (Note: This post contains copious plot information about 24. I’m assuming you’ve either seen 24 or you’ve made peace with the fact that you’ll never watch it. But if you start watching now and don’t take any breaks, you have just enough time to watch the best years of 24 before it disappears from Netflix.)

Game Of Thrones: 10 Book Characters Who Are Far Better On-Screen

28 March 2014 4:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

Very rarely does a book series get as good an adaption as Game of Thrones. The HBO adaption of A Song of Ice and Fire has hit that sweet spot of remaining faithful to the source material while also becoming its own creative work. Part of the reason it is able to achieve this is because the creative forces behind the show do a great job of bringing the various characters to life. The casting of Game of Thrones has been, for the most part, impeccable. Actors such as Sean Bean and Peter Dinklage are perfect for their roles, so much so that George R.R. Martin and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss considered them their first and only choices.

While many of the actors perfectly represent their characters onscreen, some of them actually elevate the character above their on-page origins. Much of the time this is the case »

'Sabotage' star Josh Holloway would really like to live through an entire movie

27 March 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The same day I sat down to talk to Josh Holloway about his new film "Sabotage" was the day that the PaleyFest 10th reunion panel for "Lost" was held, so it's safe to say Holloway was in a pretty great mood when we spoke. Here's what I don't get about Hollywood. "Lost" arrives on television and becomes a massive cultural hit, and one of the most charismatic cast members of that show looks and swaggers like an authentic movie star from day one. And here we are, ten years after the premiere of that show, and Holloway still hasn't had that one great movie role that could have pushed him over the top. Why is that? How is he not at the top of the list every time you're casting an action film? How is he not already in London getting ready to steal "Star Wars" out from under the rest of the cast? »

Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for Jupiter Ascending, the latest film from Lana and Andy Wachowski:

“From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks.

New 'Jupiter Ascending' Trailer: Lasers and Goblins and Channing -- Oh My! (Video)

27 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This summer is going be full of superheroes, silly comedians, and whatever the hell Godzilla is (is he a dinosaur or what?) Then, out in a different galaxy, there's "Jupiter Ascending." It's the new film from the Wachowskis, who created "The Matrix" (and its sequels) and "Speed Racer" and most recently co-directed "Cloud Atlas," and it looks absolutely bonkers. For further evidence of its commitment to trippiness, please watch the new trailer below.

Most of the trailer reiterates things that were seen in the teaser -- Mila Kunis is a lowly Earth woman who is intercepted by a half-wolf alien (Channing Tatum) and whisked away to the farthest reaches of the universe, bound for really exciting, potentially revolutionary things. (You can tell she is special because bees swarm around here. Bees!)

The movie looks absolutely insane, in the best possible way. It could be a tricky tonal balance because the »

Jupiter Ascending - Second Full Trailer

27 March 2014 | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This is the second full trailer for The Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending. I really wanted to be excited for this movie, it looks like it would be a movie that I would be stoked about, but I'm just not. The special effects and visuals look incredible, but the story seems very weak. Of course I'm still going to see it, I just won't be in any rush. My expectations are low, so maybe it will surprise me. It definitely looks like a unique movie with Channing Tatum riding around on anti gravity roller skates. 

The movie also stars Mila KunisSean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy, Richard Pickren, and Tim Pigott-Smith. Here's the synopsis:
