New trailer for Taboo starring Tom Hardy

25 September 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A brief new trailer has arrived online for Taboo, a new eight-episode drama from Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) and Kristoffer Nyholm (The Killing), which sees Tom Hardy leading a cast that also includes Michael Kelly (Everest), Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones), Oona Chaplin (Black Mirror), David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Jessie Buckley (Shades of Love), Ashley Walters (Bullet Boy), Ed Hog (Anonymous), Leo Bill (Alice in Wonderland), Christopher Fairbank (Guardians of the Galaxy), Richard Dixon (The King’s Speech), and Nicholas Woodeson (The Living and the Dead).

Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and come back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa in 1814 to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But when his father’s »

Taboo Promo Has Conspiracy, An Unhinged Tom Hardy And A Dark Family Mystery

22 September 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three seasons into its run and with a host of prestigious awards already to its name, Peaky Blinders has fast carved out an audience of its own since its bow in 2013, thanks in large part to a cracking cast and that wonderful visual style. Imagine our excitement, then, now that series creator and showrunner Steven Knight is quietly packaging a new TV series for FX by the name of Taboo.

Similar to Blinders, Knight’s latest venture is a period drama by nature, this time rolling back the years to the 19th century to focus on one James Keziah Delaney – played here by a feral Tom Hardy, who has worked with Knight before thanks to Peaky Blinders and Locke. Pitched as an eight-part miniseries, Kristoffer Nyholm (The Killing, The Enfield Haunting) is on board to direct the first half of Taboo, which will mine inspiration from a script penned by »

New Release Date for Gene Wilder’s Haunted Honeymoon Blu-ray

1 September 2016 4:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Earlier this week, we lost one of the world's great sources of laughter, joy, and creative wonder with the passing of Gene Wilder. While Wilder and his endearing benevolence will be sorely missed, his comedic genius will live on through his work, including 1986's Haunted Honeymoon, which will now be released on Blu-ray by Kino Lorber a bit sooner than originally expected.

Blu-ray.com reports that Kino Lorber will release their Haunted Honeymoon Blu-ray on September 6th, bumping it up from its initially scheduled September 27th debut.

Wilder co-wrote, directed, and starred in Haunted Honeymoon alongside his wife, the late, great Gilda Radner. According to Amazon, the special features for the Blu-ray will include trailers, and you can view the cover art and synopsis below.

In addition to Haunted Honeymoon, Kino Lorber has also moved the Blu-ray release of another Gene Wilder film, The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother, »

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Adds Jim Broadbent in a ‘Significant’ Role

31 August 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Among its many other merits, “Game of Thrones” has served valiantly as a showcase for esteemed British actors. Series regulars (Charles Dance, Jonathan Pryce) and guest stars (Ian McShane) have added to Westeros’ impressively deep roster, and those who haven’t already departed the series in a violent fashion will soon be joined by Jim Broadbent.

The Oscar winner will have a “significant” role on the show’s seventh (and penultimate) season, reports Entertainment Weekly; as is custom for “Thrones,” no more information is being divulged. Speculation as to who he might play is sure to run rampant online for quite some time, as the next season doesn’t begin until summer of 2017 — now that winter has finally arrived in Westeros, production can’t begin until later in the year than it has in past seasons. »

Watch the Shame Nun (and Other Game of Thrones Characters) Play Heads Up

19 August 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Brother Lancel, Septa Unella, King Tommen & the High Sparrow play Heads Up on set! It was Very Hot... obviously... A video posted by Eugene Simon (@eugenesnaps) on Aug 18, 2016 at 8:02am Pdt Die-hard TV fans will recognize the saying: when you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. Luckily, the consequences for losing a game of Heads Up aren't quite as severe. On Thursday, these two worlds collided when Eugene Simon - who played sixth season finale casualty Lancel Lannister - shared a cute on-set video on Instagram. In the clip, he plays the famous smartphone game with Hannah Waddingham (the Shame Nun), Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen Baratheon), and Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow). We've seen plenty of Game of Thrones cast Instagrams, but there's something mind-boggling and hilarious about watching these actors have fun while in costume. »

Sales Agent Fortissimo Films to Close on Quiet Note

17 August 2016 8:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong- and Amsterdam-based sales agent Fortissimo Films is to close its doors after more than 20 years as a pioneer of Asian and art-house cinema.

The company filed for voluntary bankruptcy Tuesday in The Netherlands. The filing was accepted by the court and notification posted. Separate filings need to be made for individual subsidiaries.

The court has appointed an administrator, known as a ‘curator’ according to the Dutch system. The curator will decide the next moves. These could range from a refinancing, to the sale of the company to a third party, or its breakup.

Staff have been informed of the situation by the existing management. The curator is expected to meet with the Amsterdam-based employees this week.

Fortissimo has represented titles by auteurs including Wong Kar-wai, Jim Jarmusch, Peter Greenaway, Tsai Ming-liang, Hal Hartley, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Brillante Mendoza, Tsui Hark and Pen-ek Ratanaruang. Its catalog spans some 300 titles.

Review: Game of Thrones Season 6 on Digital HD

12 August 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The sixth season of HBO’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones demonstrated one of the key differences between novels and television. The mass medium of television brings with it certain expectations by its audience and producers, hoping to curry favor for repeated patronage, sometimes ignore their instincts and give the fans what they want. Authors rarely so succumb, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle being the best known example of giving the readers what they wanted.

In the five books released to date, Martin has continually confounded, angered, and relentlessly surprised his readers. Characters succeed, fail, survive, and die as the story dictates, not because fans have made certain characters popular.

Therefore, this season is a mixed bag with incredibly strong storytelling undercutting its strength by not surprising us. No one, except readers of the novel, expected Ned Stark to die or what was to happen at the Red Wedding. »

Try as imitators might, there’s no film quite like “Brazil.” Terry Gilliam’s dystopian sci-fi whatsit endures as a classic of more than one genre, which is typical of the “12 Monkeys,” “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and “Time Bandits” director.

A celebration of disembodied brains and heads in the movies

13 July 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 14, 2016

We take a look at some of the most memorable and freaky floating brains and flying heads in the history of cinema...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for The Brain From The Planet Arous and Prometheus.

For some reason we've yet to discover, cinema has, for decades, been home to all manner of sentient, disembodied heads and floating brains. Note that we’re not talking about decapitations here - though goodness knows that cinema is home to plenty of those, from Japanese samurai epics to modern slasher horrors.

No, we’re talking about movies where heads and brains remain sentient even when they’re stuffed into jars or colossal things made of stone. Sometimes used for comedic effect, at other times for shock value, they’re a surprisingly common phenomenon in the movies. Here, we celebrate a few of our absolute favourites - though you’re sure »

Why ‘Game of Thrones’ Is the Drama to Beat This Emmy Season

29 June 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On the cusp of a war for control of Westeros, “Game of Thrones” proffers a pair of set pieces to match its grand design. The first, in “Battle of the Bastards,” is a feat of careful chaos, in which Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) commands his forces to encircle the small army of Jon Snow (Kit Harington); the second, in “The Winds of Winter,” is an act of cruel cunning, in which Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) dispatches her enemies by turning to mass destruction. Both, coming near the conclusion of the HBO series’ sixth season, punctuate an accelerating arc, the once far-flung characters converging on one another as “the great game” nears its close: Here, the prestige epic emerges as a combustible crowd-pleaser, now as content to reward its viewers as it once was to surprise us.

A day of battles – for the tennis hopefuls on the grass courts, among the characters in Westeros, and between the final four needle-wielding stitchers

With the Battle of the Bastards settled and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) back in the saddle in Meereen, the series six finale is free to focus on other storylines still strewn across Westeros – principally, the judicial smackdown between Cersei (Lena Headey) and the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). Some fans claim HBO’s fantasy mega-hit has lacked pace this season, but it remains in a class of its own. Who else is even attempting screen storytelling on such an exhilaratingly ambitious scale?

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. »
