Espionage Thriller Red Sparrow Taps Ciarán Hinds As Russian Officer

15 February 2017 12:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Irish actor Ciarán Hinds, best known for his roles in Game of Thrones and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is the latest addition to Red Sparrow, the espionage thriller in the works from Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games).

Hinds will play a high-ranking Russian official known as Zyugonov, who presides over much of the country’s intelligence agency. In light of today’s casting coup, he now joins an ensemble that includes Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, Joely Richardson and Jennifer Lawrence, marking the latter’s first collaboration with Francis Lawrence post-Panem. Indeed, the Oscar-winner has laid claim to a juicy role in Red Sparrow, after securing the part of Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova more than a year ago.

Under the cast-iron bureaucracy of Russian intelligence, Dominika is trained as a seductress, one considered indispensable in the mission of surveilling budding CIA officer Nathaniel Nash (Edgerton). It tees up »

Official Trailer for Matthew Goode’s The Hatton Garden Job breaks out

27 January 2017 5:58 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Back in 2015, Britain witnessed a robbery that could have been straight out of the movies. It was a throwback crime to the days of the Great Train Robbery of 1963, a crime which made the likes of Buster Edwards and Ronnie Biggs household names. It was only a matter of time before this new story was adapted for the big screen and The Hatton Garden Job is just that film.

The Hatton Garden Job is directed by Tower Block and I Am Soldier writer and director Ronnie Thompson, though looking at the new trailer anyone would think this has a touch of Guy Ritchie about it. The cast is none too shabby either; the gang of aging criminals is lead by Brian Reader who is played by Larry Lamb who may be most recognisable as Gavin’s Dad in Gavin and Stacey. He also had the evil role »

6 January 2017 8:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

NBC commenced its journey to Emerald City on Friday night, with the first two hours of its 10-episode riff on The Wizard of Oz. Will you stay by Dorothy’s side for the remainder of the trek?

‘Emerald City’ Review: Embrace Tarsem’s Crazypants ‘Wizard of Oz’ Adaptation, and Reap The Rewards

6 January 2017 9:07 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There have been a lot of takes on “The Wizard of Oz,” a lot of different points-of-view on the fantastical world originally created by the novels of L. Frank Baum in 1900. But NBC’s “Emerald City” is, to the best of my knowledge, the first one that transforms the flying monkeys of the classic 1939 musical adaptation into steampunk drones. They’re still recognizably flying monkeys, but to the residents of Oz, they’re just a random bit of technology, accepted as normal in a world that’s anything but.

There is something genuinely special about NBC’s “Emerald City,” premiering tonight — and not just because of its complicated journey to television, which included at least one total shutdown during the development phase before being reborn as a 10-episode series directed in its totality by Tarsem Singh, in a wide variety of exotic locations around the world.

Emerald City episode 1 review: The Beast Forever

5 January 2017 11:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kayti Burt Feb 8, 2017

The best parts of Emerald City are also the least iconic in this NBC TV drama based on The Wizard of Oz, now airing in the UK...

This review contains minor spoilers and slight references to later episodes.

L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz and its sequels have been adapted for the screen for nearly as long as there has been cinema. There's something about the tale of farmgirl Dorothy Gale being swept into the strange, magical, and sometimes scary land of Oz that has stuck in American popular consciousness and never let go.

Emerald City is the latest addition to the long on-screen Oz tradition, but, for all of the ways it draws from its obvious source material, it's strengths and weakness are defined by other pop »

TV Review: ‘Emerald City’ on NBC

4 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn’t seen “The Wizard of Oz,” read the source material by L. Frank Baum, or come across some retelling of Dorothy’s picaresque journey. And therein lies the core problem with “Emerald City.” In look and tone, it does not imitate the classic 1939 film starring Judy Garland, but this darker take on the story remains so familiar that, although it’s gorgeous, there’s too little tension and suspense driving it.

There are imaginative nods to the iconic film: A rainbow takes the form of a stained-glass decoration, and monkey statues are part of an elaborate drone system in Oz. Director Tarsem Singh, who is also an executive producer on “Emerald City,” displays a sensibility that dovetails well with both halves of the show’s name. “Emerald City” features saturated jewel tones and inventive and elaborate urban landscapes, and Singh’s use of color and his talent for »

Emerald City Season 1 Review

4 January 2017 1:38 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

If you’re not one for the resurgence of classic fairy tales translated into hard-edged, dark adventure stories (Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Huntsman), then you’ll likely have a difficult time connecting with NBC’s wondrously visualized but narratively slight re-do of The Wizard of Oz. Dubbed Emerald City, the new show has all the trappings of the hero’s journey – a reluctant heroine, an animal companion, a potential love interest, and about three too many villains – but it does nothing interesting with L. Frank Baum’s decidedly classic storytelling other than make it slightly more “adult.”

A twist on such a wholesome, homegrown American myth is ripe with potential, but Emerald City‘s idea of an origin story is one filled with cable-protected sex scenes for the Witch of the West (Ana Ularu, one of Emerald City‘s gleefully »

Emerald City Sneak Peek: The Witches of Oz

4 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

What's a witch without her magic?

Not much of a witch, that's for sure.

But, the witches still exist in NBC's Emerald City, even if they are banned by the Wizard from using their powers.

The Wicked Witch of the East is played by Florence Kasumba

In the 1939 The Wizard of Oz movie, the Wicked Witch of the East was killed when Dorothy's house fell on top of her after coming out of the tornado. The only thing we saw as viewers were her ugly witch feet sticking out from under said house.

Will this new Wicked Witch of the East have the same fate? You'll have to watch to find out.

One thing that is for certain: Kasumba makes for one gorgeous witch! 

Her costume is amazing!

Ana Ularu plays West (as in the Wicked Witch of the West though that's not her official title here).

You won't be seeing her wearing green makeup, »

Emerald City First Look: Magic Cannot Be Controlled

2 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Get ready for some magic.

NBC's long-awaited series, Emerald City has finally made it to the small screen.

It's a reimagining of Frank L. Baum's 14 Wizard of Oz books, but it's nothing like you've ever seen before.

Dorothy may still be swept up in a tornado, but the land she lands in isn't anything like where Judy Garland landed in 1939's "The Wizard of Oz".

This Oz is much more dark, and this Dorothy (Adria Ajorna) has a lot more grit.

And did you check out her dog? He certainly isn't going to fit in a little wicker basket.

Still, director Tarsem Singh, who filmed the series non-episodically, like a movie, threw in a few Easter eggs for lovers of the original film. 

We've already seen Emerald City Season 1 Episode 1, "The Beast Forever" and Emerald City Season 1 Episode 2, "Prison of the Abject", both of which make up the two-hour premiere, »
