Peoples of the universe, please attend carefully. In life, nothing is certain but death, taxes and the Master coming back to Doctor Who every once in a while. First appearing in 1971's Terror Of The Autons, Roger Delgado's original incarnation even appeared in every single story of the eighth season, with various nefarious schemes designed to threaten or simply annoy the Doctor.

Over the rest of the classic series, he menaced later Doctors as the decrepit Peter Pratt, the full-on Kentucky fried Geoffrey Beevers, the wry, murderous Anthony Ainley and the 90s action movie baddy Eric Roberts. He was a master of disguise, »

Take A (Master) Class In Doctor Who History With This New Promo

30 June 2017 5:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With John Simm having made his return to Doctor Who for the first time since 2010 in last week’s episode “World Enough and Time,” it seems like an opportune moment to remind ourselves of the long history of the Doctor’s nemesis the Master, doesn’t it?

The short video you’ll see above runs through the Master’s many regenerations at a rather quick pace. If you need some reminding, the uber-villain has gone through seven different incarnations over the decades. First, there was Roger Delgado (1971-73), followed by a horribly disfigured version (Peter Pratt, 1976; Geoffrey Beevers, 1981) and then there was Anthony Ainley (1981-89). The one-off Doctor Who: The Movie featured Eric Roberts as the Master in 1997 before the revived series cast Derek Jacobi in 2007. John Simm then took over, followed by Michelle Gomez in 2014.

Doctor Who series 10 episode 10 is The Eaters Of Light. And we've been digging into it right here...

Akira movie update, Universal’s Dark Universe in potential legal problems and more – Daily News Roundup

2 June 2017 2:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Akira

The long-gestating Akira movie has seemingly been in development forever by this point. Several director names have been rumoured and attached, but no cast has ever been announced or even a whiff of a production start date. Original director Katsuhiro Otomo has no issues with his vision being remade into a live-action format, but in a new interview with Forbes he has laid down one ground rule. “As I accepted the offer for a live-action Akira to be made, so I am generally okay with whatever they want to do with it,” he said. “However, I did give one major condition to a live-action version and that is that I had to check and approve the scenario.” Read more here.

Murder On The Orient Express Trailer Is Spectacularly Lumet-esque

1 June 2017 11:53 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It isn’t exactly a surprise that no one has wanted to touch Murder on the Orient Express since Sidney Lumet’s 1974 version, but now that Kenneth Branagh has picked up the gauntlet, there are going to be comparisons.

Now that we finally have a trailer, it looks like we might have a worthy effort on our hands, and we certainly have the talent on board to at least pay tribute to the classic. Plus, it conveniently takes the time to show us who our players are.

We may be decades into an era of remaking every movie we can, but there are still some things that you don’t mess with. If you’re looking at a real classic, and one loaded with legendary actors, you better have a pretty serious idea of creating something relevant. Branagh’s is clearly a name that people are willing to give the benefit of the doubt there. »

Trailer For Murder On The Orient Express

1 June 2017 6:40 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

You may have not been aware that a new version of Agatha Christie’s classic mystery, Murder on the Orient Express, was in the works, but now that the first trailer has arrived, it’s probably firmly on your radar now. Director Kenneth Branagh, also pulling double duty as master detective Hercule Poirot (sporting one of the most ridiculous, amazing moustaches ever), has assembled quite the cast here, including Judi Dench, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Hamilton’s Leslie Odom, Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, and Daisy Ridley, for probably the most stylish take on the classic tale yet. Having grown up on multiple version of this story, on both t.v. and the big screen, I should feel jaded about yet another version, but the combination of the cast and Branagh’s incredibly polished directing style has me beyond excited for this.

First ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Trailer: Everyone Is a Suspect (Watch)

1 June 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kenneth Branagh takes on Agatha Christie’s great murder detective character Hercule Poirot in the first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s “Murder on the Orient Express.”

The trailer opens as passengers board an old-fashioned locomotive against a snowy backdrop.

“You know there is something about a tangle of strangers pressed together with nothing in common but the need to go from one place to another, and never see each other again,” the detective says in a voiceover. “I see evil on this train. A passenger has died.”

A long shot pans through the train as we learn who each of the passengers — and now suspects — is. The ensemble cast includes Tom Bateman, Lucy Boynton, Olivia Colman, Penelope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Derek Jacobi, Marwan Kenzari, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Sergei Polunin, and Daisy Ridley.

All aboard! Stunning first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded Murder on the Orient Express

1 June 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

20th Century Fox have today debuted the first look at director Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded remake of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, which you can view below!

A new version of the classic story, Branagh directs the film as well as taking the film’s lead, as the legendary sleuth Hercule Poirot. On board the famous train, Poirot must solve a murder onboard with everyone a suspect and the detective sifts through 13 strangers to find the killer. The film is produced by Ridley Scott (Alien: Covenant) and Simon Kinberg (The Martian) and written by Alien: Covenant scribe Michael Green.

With a release date set for November time across the globe, it’s fair to say that the studio will be pushing the film into contention for the awards season its release precedes and judging from the first trailer, that may well be the case. »

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in Murder On The Orient Express - and here's the first trailer...

With a huff, puff and just a small chuff, along comes the first trailer for Kenneth Branagh's glitzy adaptation of Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express

As you may have guessed, we'll be making so many train-related joked between now and its release this winter that we'll probably lose track. 

Here's the trailer:

Our poster story follows...

When Kenneth Branagh directs a movie with a sizeable ensemble, the result is usually joyous. As such, I’m greatly looking forward to his adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express, which I’m betting will be – ready? – a sleeper hit this winter. Chortle.

The film also sees Branagh in the role of Hercule Poirot, and he’s attracted a hell of a cast to the mystery. There’s Penelope Cruz, »
