Joining returning familiar faces Alex Kingston, Manu Bennett, Bex Taylor Klaus and Caity Lotz in upcoming season 3 episodes of the CW's Arrow is Peter Stormare's Count Vertigo. Entertainment Weekly report that the Blacklist actor will reprise the role of Werner Zytle in episode 13 of the show, but they don't have any further details on the manner of his return. Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim does offer a few extra titbits however. “It’s a thrill to have Peter Stormare return as Vertigo,” he tells the site. “When people see this episode, I think they’ll find that it’s a culmination of a lot of elements that we’ve put into place in the first 12 episodes of Season 3. For that reason, it felt appropriate to us to have Peter return since he was the villain of the episode that kicked off all of this madness. It’s also just a »

22 Jump Street Blu-ray Review

28 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Chris Miller and Phil Lord have a history of picking projects that shouldn’t work and turning them into winners, and the one that may have been the trickiest is22 Jump Street.  Where you can argue that people underrated the possibility that 21 Jump Street or The Lego Movie could actually be good, with 22 Jump Street not only were they making a comedy sequel (usually a bad idea), but had to deliver something as good as the first one.  The shock is they actually made a comedy sequel that is as good (if not better) than the original.  Take that, Ghostbusters 2 and Anchorman: The Legend ContinuesJonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Ice Cube return for what was the best mainstream film of this past summer, and my review of the Blu-ray follows after the jump. Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Hill) may have solved a big case, but at the start of the sequel, »

An octopus, Benedict Cumberbatch, and the Penguins of Madagascar

26 November 2014 10:28 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

What do you get when you mix an evil octopus, the internet’s boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch, and some spying penguins?  The Penguins of Madagascar.

A spin-off of the popular “Afro Circus”-singing franchise sees sidekicks Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico upgraded to leading bird status in their brand new adventure that sees them coming nose-to-nose- or beak-to-tentacle, as it were - with a dastardly octopus named Dave (John Malkovich) who’s bent on destroying the world.  But they’re not in this mission alone: the super-secret spy agency The North Wind has lent Agent Classified (Cumberbatch) to the cause.

The Penguins’ vocal cast includes all four of the original voice actors to provide their signature sounds while the film mixes in characters voiced by the likes of Peter Stormare, Andy Richter, and Ken Jeong.  Tom McGrath, the voice of Skipper, is one of the writers and original creators of the Madagascar series. »

Opening tomorrow is Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith's The Penguins of Madagascar.  DreamWorks Animation's upcoming spinoff features the espionage-minded birds as they go off on a mission to bring down the nefarious octopus Dave (John Malkovich) even though they end up getting in the way of the professional spy organization the North Wind, which is led by the wolf "Classified" (Benedict Cumberbatch).  The movie also features the voices of Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter Stormare.  For more on the film, check out the trailer.

First Trailer For Strange Magic

23 November 2014 8:54 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A couple of weeks ago, the world at large learned of the existence of Strange Magic, an animated adventure based on an idea by George Lucas that had quietly been developing at his Lucasfilm company under the aegis of director Gary Rydstrom. With the movie arriving in the Us in a couple of months, the trailer has now appeared. Strange Magic is set in a world where the kingdoms of the magical and the mysterious are linked but never meet. Then an interloper crosses the border and all manner of chaos breaks out, mostly to do with a powerful potion that both sides wish control over. Loosely based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the film is powered along by pop songs that apparently help tell the story, even if it all seems a little basic in terms of plot. The cast includes Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, »
