Check Out the Orphan Black Second TV Spot for Season 2 and More

23 December 2013 5:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

The first TV spot released for Orphan Black, back during the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, was really just a date announcement. This second one has a bit more going on, though no clips yet. But we have a few months to go before the premiere, so we should expect a slow build.

Here’s a first look from the new season, followed by the TV spot first released by EW:

TV Spot: Orphan Black – S2 Animated Teaser

And the Season 2 synopsis:

Season two of Orphan Black hits the ground running with Sarah (Tatiana Maslany, Picture Day, Parks and Recreation) in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler, Carrie). Her scorched earth tactics spark a war with pro-clone, Rachel (Maslany), dividing and imperiling all the clones. As Sarah discovers more about her past, mysterious newcomers appear, but can they be trusted? Orphan Black returns Saturday, April »

15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels

5 November 2013 4:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie 6 Nov 2013 - 06:50

From random films with altered names to unrelated storylines, we take a look at 15 incredibly tenuous horror and sci-fi film sequels...

The profit-driven nature of filmmaking usually means that, if a movie's a hit, sequels follow. And it's sometimes the case that, particularly in the realm of low-budget sci-fi and horror, those sequels are trotted out in a rush, or don't have anything to do with the film they're following.

This isn't to say that the sequels on this list are necessarily bad - it's a proper mixed bag of the great, the mediocre and the downright awful - but in each instance, these sequels have only vague links to their predecessors, or worse still, they're entirely different films rebranded to fit an existing franchise.  

Our list is by no means definitive - rather, we've chosen a collection of films that we find the most memorable. »

'Orphan Black' episodes 7 and 8: This week's biggest questions

25 October 2013 2:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

One question dominates BBC Three's Orphan Black - who can be trusted? Each of the show's characters - from Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) to Paul (Dylan Bruce) to Olivier (David Richmond-Peck) - is telling lies or only sharing half-truths - and this week, in a double-bill, events grow ever more mind-frazzingly complex…

Paul, at least, is apparently on the side of the angels - or as close as this show gets. When he warns Sarah - over the phone - that Olivier knows the truth about her identity swap with Beth, he ends up captive, drugged and beaten.

To save Paul, Sarah forms an uneasy alliance with Helena - promising her information in exchange for rescuing her hunky beau - and the tail-sporting Olivier soon finds himself mutilated and confined to a hospital, where he's finished off by an agent of Aldous Leekie (Matt Frewer).

Leekie's end-game is still a mystery »

'Orphan Black' episode 6: This week's biggest questions

18 October 2013 1:45 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

So neither Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) or Paul (Dylan Bruce) were who they claimed to be - Sarah, of course, isn't Beth, while Paul has been serving as Beth's monitor against his will, with no real knowledge of his mission or endgame...

The pair's mutual confession season is interrupted when Sarah bolts, heading straight over to Alison's, who's got a bit of a crisis on her hands...

See, Allison filmed her night's sleep with husband Donnie (Kristian Bruun) - Paranormal Activity-style - and grabs footage of him leaving their bed for several hours. Their subsequent confrontation escalates quickly and turns violent - in short, don't mess with a soccer mum wielding a golf club.

Allison ties up and questions Donnie, threatening him with a variety of household implements - next to Helena, she's definitely the clone you least want to piss off, and when Sarah calls round, she finds Donnie bound, »

Orphan Black season 1 episode 6 review: Variations Under Domestication

18 October 2013 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Rob Kemp 18 Oct 2013 - 22:00

Tatiana Maslany's performance, and that of the writers, continues to impress in this week's Orphan Black...

This review contains spoilers.

1.6 Variations Under Domestication

The X-Files did it best, and many have adopted a similar stance, but Orphan Black’s short and sometimes esoteric titles are similarly worthy of attention. Titles are important for many reasons, mostly they are simple summaries, but at times they are the very meaning of what the episode is, and the Orphan Black showrunners have imbued both meaning and summary within theirs. Nowhere is this clearer than in Variations Under Domestication, where the title summarises the episode far better in three words than I could in many more, and importantly it’s also this episode’s central theme – but more on this later.

This week’s episode almost feels like a different show from last week’s instalment, despite »

Disney 53: Hercules

11 September 2013 11:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’d like to dedicate this one to my sister Elanor, who’s turning 21 today. I love you, kid.

Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements

117/ 93 Minutes

After the grim and serious Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Disney lightened the tone considerably with Hercules. Of course, technically it should be Heracles, since Hercules was the roman name, but that’s just one in a long long list of changes Disney made to the Greek myths. There are probably entire websites dedicated to the “mistakes” made by the filmmakers, but hey, artistic licence.   

Reuniting the directors of The Great Mouse Detective (1986), The Little Mermaid (1989) and Aladdin (1992), Hercules is one part buddy-movie, one part coming-of-age story, and one large part Rocky-with-sandals, but first and foremost it’s a light-hearted screwball romp with a couple of life lessons thrown in. Production started in late 1994, with character designs based on classical Greek statues, with help »

Get Ready for the Reelz Movie Event Delete with This Primer on the Recognizable Cast

15 August 2013 12:33 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The fourth in our End of the World movie series, Delete, premiered Monday, but there are more chances to watch this week. Once again the world is in jeopardy, and this time around it's a malicious artificial intelligence that's to blame. As is the case for many of our Reelz movie events, the cast is full of familiar faces. As is often the case for familiar faces, sometimes it leaves you with that nagging “what else have I seen them in?” feeling. So here it is: our guide to what else you’ve seen them in.

Seth Green

The most recognizable cast member is probably Seth Green, who starred as Scott Evil in the Austin Powers trilogy and Lyle in the Italian Job. Green’s voice is probably as recognizable as his face these days because he’s the voice of Chris Griffin on Family Guy and regularly voices characters on his own animated series, »

Comic-Con Orphan Black Featurettes Highlight Clone Magic and Felix’s Best Lines

24 July 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

I’ve made no secret of my deep and abiding love for BBC America‘s Orphan Black, which finished its first season back in June and will return for Season 2 in 2014. Two of the aspects that I hold most dear are the astounding effects when star Tatiana Maslany is playing more than one role at the same time onscreen, and the absolute delight of Jordan Gavaris‘s portrayal of main character Sarah’s foster brother Felix.

It’s therefore clear that BBC America had me in mind when they had these two featurettes created for the Orphan Black panel at Comic-Con. The first talks about what goes into those scenes that feature multiple Tatianas, and the second highlights the wonderful snark of Fe.

Orphan Black Marathon, TV Spots and Clips Still Won’t Prepare You for the Awesome Season Finale

31 May 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Smart, twisty, intriguing, with characters we care about (most of them played by the same actor) and a smattering of spies and science, Orphan Black is beloved by a lot of the SciFiMafiosi – like you, perhaps. Definitely like me. It’s my favorite show right now, and has been all season long. I’ve seen the season finale and trust me, you will not be disappointed.

In an attempt to try to prepare you, BBC America has released two TV spots for the finale, and two clips from last week’s episode as reminders of where we left off. Better yet, though, watch the marathon of all nine previously-aired episodes that lead up to Saturday night’s Season One Finale. It starts at noon, so if you’ve missed any episodes, or if you just would love to watch the show again, like me, make sure to check that out. »

Exclusive: Orphan Black Executive Producers On the Beginning, Middle, and End

31 May 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Season 1 of the completely excellent Orphan Black comes to a close tomorrow night with another roller coaster ride that you will Not want to miss. Orphan Black has easily been one of the very best shows of 2013, so I was more than happy to accept the invitation to speak with Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier, co-presidents of Orphan Black’s production company Temple Street Productions, shortly after the show’s season 2 pickup was announced earlier this month.

They gave a lot of insight about the process of script and show development, about where they are in the process of planning out Season 2, and blissfully, a little something about knowing how the series will end.

First off, I asked them when they knew about the pickup:

Ivan Schneeberg: We have a really great relationship with BBC America, and with the folks at Space in Canada, people in our company speak with them pretty much daily, »

The Best Keeps Getting Better on Tonight’s Orphan Black, Prep With TV Spot and More

11 May 2013 11:19 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

And this already-a-list show just keeps getting better. Seriously. As great as last week’s episode of Orphan Black was, tonight’s is even better. Thank Goodness there will be a second season, and yes, there is a multi-season series arc. Be sure to watch for my exclusive interview with the co-presidents of the production company next week.

One of the things Orphan Black really excels at is the amount of information it gives us in every episode. In so many linear shows, the information comes out in tiny drips. In Orphan Black it comes out in terrific reveals, every single week, and tonight is no exception. I can’t wait for you to see it.

Unfortunately, no clips are available this week, so I’ve added in the official synopsis to help you prep, but it’s a great TV spot, and it’s a Great episode, so don »
