‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Featurette: Elisabeth Moss Explains How There’s Still Hope in the Dystopian Drama

24 February 2017 11:22 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is a bleak look at our possible future, but that doesn’t mean that it lacks faith in the human spirit.

In Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, a plague of infertility has swept the world in the future. In the land of Gilead, roughly where New England is now, a totalitarian regime has overtaken the government and has enslaved the remaining fertile women to become breeders for high-ranking officials.

“It is unquestionably a dark world, but it’s not a dark show,” executive producer Bruce Miller says in the featurette Hulu released on Thursday. “The show is about perspective and not losing the hope of getting your life back.”

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Cast and EPs Discuss the Dystopian World in New Featurette (Watch)

24 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Imagine if all the fertile women in the world were rounded up and enslaved by an extreme regime that takes away their rights and their families.

According to the stars and creators of Hulu’s upcoming drama “The Handmaid’s Tale,” based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, that horrible reality “seems far away, but it also seems like it could be so close.”

“It’s really a dystopian world where an extreme regime rises up and says we have a better way,” explains executive producer Warren Littlefield in an exclusive new featurette for the show.

Turns out that better way is to snatch fertile women away from their friends and families and forbid them from even speaking about their previous lives.

In one scene from the new trailer, we see the captured women being lectured on how the world has become so filled with chemical pollution and radiation, that »

Taika Waititi to Co-Direct Michael Jackson's Chimp Biopic 'Bubbles'

11 February 2017 10:31 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has signed up to co-direct Bubbles, an off-beat biopic about Michael Jackson's pet chimpanzee. The Isaac Adamson-penned screenplay previously won first place on the 2015 Black List, Hollywood's annual rundown of the best unproduced scripts.

While a short film starring Joseph Fiennes as the King of Pop was condemned by fans and Paris Jackson and ultimately pulled from broadcast, Bubbles won't face similar criticism over the casting of Jackson: The movie will be a stop-motion film that combines 3D printing and puppetry, much like Charlie Kaufman's Anomalisa, »

Archstone takes Joseph Fiennes-starring Eric Liddell biopic to Efm

10 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Flying Scotsman stars Fiennes in the unofficial sequel to Chariots Of Fire.

Us-based Archstone Distribution is in town talking up the drama On Wings Of Eagles starring Joseph Fiennes as ‘Flying Scotsman’ Eric Liddell.

The drama charts the adult life of the athlete and devout Christian and is styled as an unofficial sequel to 1981 Oscar-winner Chariots Of Fire.

Liddell was born in 1902 in China to Scottish missionaries and became a gifted sportsman who represented his country at rugby and competed in the 1924 Olympics in Paris.

He won the 400m gold medal at the Games after he refused to compete in the 100m heats because they took place on a Sunday.

A year later Liddell returned to work as a missionary teacher in China and died in a Japanese civilian internment camp in 1945.

Archstone screens On Wings Of Eagles again on Sunday. Brady Bowen brokered the acquisition with Jerry Dasti of Goodland Pictures and Kevin Mills of Innowave »

Taika Waititi Going From ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ To Michael Jackson Chimp Movie ‘Bubbles’

10 February 2017 1:20 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On the list of projects we figured would never get made, “Bubbles” is pretty high up there. The script by Isaac Adamson topped the 2015 Black List, and it’s certainly bold stuff, but given that it touched upon the terrain of Michael Jackson, we figured the potential controversy might be too great for anyone to touch it (just look at the episode of “Urban Myths” featuring Joseph Fiennes as the King Of Pop which was yanked from release following mountains of bad publicity).

Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale Super Bowl Teaser Plans To Survive

3 February 2017 6:13 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the Super Bowl is mainly about the football game, it’s also a tremendous advertising opportunity. For years, movie studios have snuck 30-second advertisements for their hottest (and not so hot) properties between the multi-million dollar game. But television is now ready to compete with the big boys. Netflix announced earlier today that they’ll show their first Stranger Things season 2 trailer during the game and now, Hulu has unveiled the Super Bowl teaser for The Handmaid’s Tale, their warmly-anticipated Margaret Atwood adaptation of the same name.

While this TV spot doesn’t tell us more than the first trailer did last month, it’s nevertheless an unnerving, suspenseful tease for the Elisabeth Moss-starring miniseries. Those who are familiar with the book won’t find anything they don’t know here, but for those left in the dark, it’s intriguing, to say the least.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Earns Hulu’s First Super Bowl Spot for an Original Series (Watch)

3 February 2017 7:24 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amid the usual betting (legal and illegal) on Super Bowl Sunday comes a different kind of bet from Hulu: a Super Bowl commercial for its upcoming dystopian series “The Handmaid’s Tale,” starring Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Yvonne Strahovski, Joseph Fiennes, and plenty of other actors you enjoy seeing on your screen.

Hulu has released the spot early; you can watch it above or on YouTube.

“The Handmaid’s Tale,” based on the 1985 Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, takes place in a nightmare world in which women are little more than baby factories, servants, or trophy wives. The 30-second spot elegantly reveals this world, a theocracy where women no longer have names — instead, they are referred to as “Offred,” “Ofglen,” “Ofcharles,” property of the Commanders who are using them to bear children because their barren wives cannot.

Urban Myths: Bob Dylan review – his Bobness pops to Crouch End for tea

19 January 2017 11:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The first in Sky Arts’ new Urban Myths series of comedy drama, starring a very convincingly Bob-like Eddie Marsan

Sky Arts’ new Urban Myths series of comedy dramas has already made waves, although not the sort it would have wanted. They decided, in the end, not to air the one in which Joseph Fiennes plays Michael Jackson, after the outrage it caused, particularly from Jackson’s family. Seems it does matter if you’re black or white, after all.

This one – Urban Myths: Bob Dylan (Sky Arts) – is contentious only in its questionable veracity, which of course is the point of an urban myth. Bob shows up at Heathrow; he is poetic, obtuse and generally Bob-like to the (unusually) nice lady at passport control, who is confused, a little suspicious but also undeniably charmed and sends her regards to Dave, the Eurythmic, whom Bob says he’s in town to visit. »

Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando’s Rumored September 11 Road Trip: The Truth Behind the Myth

19 January 2017 1:06 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s one of the most irresistible, if improbable, Hollywood stories of recent times. After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, did Elizabeth Taylor escape New York City by getting in a rental car with Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando and driving all the way to Ohio?

Not so, says, Tim Mendelson, a close friend and trustee of Elizabeth Taylor’s estate, who was with her that week in Manhattan at the St. Regis Hotel. “There was never any road trip,” he says. “Elizabeth was in New York after 9/11 with Debbie Reynolds. She didn’t want Debbie to be alone.”
