Black Butterfly Trailer Invites a Sinister Stranger into the House

21 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Home is where the heart is, and for Paul (Antonio Banderas), it also includes a very sketchy stranger named Jack (Jonathan Rhys Meyers). A reimagining of the heart-pounding French thriller Papillon NoirBrian Goodman's Black Butterfly is teased in a new trailer and poster ahead of its May 26th theatrical and VOD release.

"Outside a mountain town grappling with a series of abductions and murders, Paul (Antonio Banderas), a reclusive writer, struggles to start what he hopes will be a career-saving screenplay. After a tense encounter at a diner with a drifter named Jack (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Paul offers Jack a place to stay – and soon the edgy, demanding Jack muscles his way into Paul’s work. As a storm cuts off power to the isolated cabin, the two men begin a jagged game of one-upmanship that will bring at least one tale to an end.

Vikings season 5: get ready for "a very different Rollo"

15 March 2017 3:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Louisa Mellor Mar 15, 2017

Season 4 spoilers ahead, folks, as we prepare for the return of Vikings later this year...

Much like us, you might be delighted to learn that Clive Standen will be back for a fifth season of Vikings.

See related  Marvel's Iron Fist spoiler-free review Luke Cage smashed Marvel's 2016 Netflix ratings Daredevil season 3: Vincent D’Onofrio mulls Fisk's return Marvel's The Defenders: more images arrive

We were left unsure if the actor would be back on our screens in season 5 as the ever-evolving Rollo for several reasons. Firstly, the last season of the show saw Rollo drift back to Normandy, possibly never to be seen again, and secondly, actor Standen landed the lead role in NBC's Taken TV show, which is still going strong.

Luckily, it turns our that there'll be plenty of Rollo when Vikings returns, but he'll have gone through some serious changes.

The 24 Most Important Vampire TV Shows Ever, Ranked

10 March 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Today is the 20th anniversary of the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” premiere, and the day that “The Vampire Diaries” airs its series finale — a day sure to go down in broadcast history as Vampire TV Day.

But those two shows are far from the only ones to depict bloodsuckers (to use a pejorative term) on screen, and IndieWire has dusted off the TV crypt to unearth a ranker of our favorite fangs.

Yes, we know there’s a lot at stake here.

Vikings season 4 episodes 19 & 20 review: On The Eve & The Reckoning

9 February 2017 1:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Laura Akers Feb 9, 2017

Vikings bows out of an uneven season with some of its biggest battle scenes ever. Here's our spoiler-filled finale review...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Taboo episode 5 review Taboo episode 4 review Taboo episode 3 review Taboo episode 2 review Taboo episode 1 review: Shovels And Keys

4.19 On The Eve & 4.20 The Reckoning

On The Eve and The Reckoning finish out this rocky season’s primary storylines, and it’s a fair mixture of good and not-so-great. That’s unfortunate because this season gives us a hint of how the show will do without Ragnar in the ascendant… or even on screen. There is more than a little reason to suspect that the move from what was essentially one man’s story to a narrative with no clear protagonist will be a struggle for Hirst to manage for the longer haul.

And this is essentially where most of the weaknesses that »

Vikings: Season Finale - Major Deaths And The Fallout

2 February 2017 11:23 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: Spoiler Alert!

Wow. At first I was slow to get into this show, but now I am on-board more than ever. In fact, this show may actually one-up Game of Thrones in the ability to take a major character death and develop it into an even greater story. This epic started with the farm boy Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), and followed his kingly career path all the way to his death in season 4. Think about this for a second; he dies in season 4, not in season 1 like Eddard Stark did in Game of Thrones, and Vikings has gotten better each episode this late in the "game". We had even more deaths in this episode of Vikings, and I will start with the most shocking.

Helga

Once Helga entered the hall with her "adoptive daughter" (read prisoner), I had suspicions that something tragic was about to happen. Oh and it did in the worst way. »

Vikings Season 4 Episode 20 Review: The Reckoning

1 February 2017 7:50 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Ivar needs to work on his impulse control. 

We all knew it was coming. Ivar was definitely going to kill Sigurd eventually. 

However, I can't say I expected it to be quite so public. 

Vikings Season 4 Episode 20 could very well be a game changer for the (remaining) sons of Ragnar. 

Where do they go from here? 

As Bjorn said, they all came together to avenge their father's death, but now it appears they'll all go their separate ways. 

Bjorn wants to return to the Mediterranean, and it shouldn't too hard to get enough people to follow him. 

Ivar, on the other hand, wants to lead the army and continue raiding. He was well on his way to enticing nearly the entire crowd to follow him, but that was before he threw an ax at his own brother. 

Will anybody want to follow him now? The guy is completely psycho. 

History tells us that they will, »

‘Vikings’ Season 4 Finale: Michael Hirst on Shocking Deaths, Series’ Possible End (Spoilers)

1 February 2017 7:01 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoilers for those who haven’t seen Wednesday night’s Season 4 finale of “Vikings.”

The sons of Ragnar, different and yet all so like their father, have been united by a single purpose these last few episodes of Season 4: to avenge their father’s death at the hands of King Aelle and, by proxy, King Ecbert (Linus Roache). But they all seem to have different ideas about what to do next — settle down in East Anglia, go back to raiding, sail to yet further shores. And it’s all complicated by Ivar (Alex Høgh) throwing an axe into his brother Sigurd (David Lindström), bringing the finale’s main character body count up to three. “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst called up Variety to talk about what’s next.

Will anything happen to Ivar? One would think kinslaying would be a pretty serious deal.

Ivar’s in a special position, he always has been. I »

Exclusive clip as epic Vikings finale introduces Jonathan Rhys Meyers as warrior bishop

Tonight we have The Reckoning we have been waiting for, as the sons of Ragnar continue their sweep of the north of England in the finale of Vikings. The episode picks up from last week with the vikings’ Great Heathen Army encircling Aethelwulf and his army. What has not changed is the uneasy alliance between the vastly different leadership styles of Ivar and Bjorn. The other sons are not as strong in leadership qualities. But having the upper hand consistently in Wessex and East Anglia seems foreshadowed as not to be, with the introduction of Jonathan Rhys Meyers to the cast. Showrunner...read more »

John Hurt, Alien and Harry Potter Star, Passes Away at 77

28 January 2017 9:15 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

British actor Sir John Hurt, whose illustrious career spans six decades, has sadly passed away at the age of 77. The gravelly voiced man of many roles was perhaps best known for his classic movies such as Alien, Harry Potter and The Elephant Man. Publicist Charles McDonald confirmed the death late Friday. According to CNN, no cause of death is given.

John Hurt made a name for himself playing tormented characters. And he was actually known as an actor who most often times died on screen. Throughout his many projects, he had 47 death scenes. Perhaps no more memorable than when he introduced the world to the iconic Chestburster in Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien, where a baby xenomorph came ripping through his chest during a dinner scene inside a spaceship mess hall.

John Hurt's first role was in the 1962 TV show Z cars, and he has worked steadily ever since. »
