Here's what The Great British Bake Off looks like in Brazil, Ukraine, Italy, USA and beyond

24 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Great British Bake Off is as synonymous with the UK as a nice cup of tea and Big Ben, but can the format be translated around the world?

The answer is... yes! Bake Off has been broadcast in 196 territories and its format has been sold to 20 nations, with varying degrees of success. So what do Mel and Sue, Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry look like in the USA, Ukraine and elsewhere?

1. Bake Off Brazil - Hands-on

Very similar to the UK version, but if you're expecting a dose of samba music you'll be disappointed, as the exact same UK soundtrack appears to have returned. Ticiana Villas Boas hosts the oddly named show, flanked by entrepreneur Fabrizio Fasano Jr (a brilliant Hollywood replacement) and baker Carolina Fiorentino (a much younger Mary Berry, don't tell her we said that).

2. The Great Australian Bake Off

The first series aired in 2013, with hosts »

Can you guess which world-famous actress this little girl grew up to be? Here are a few hints: She won an Oscar in 2003, starred in the movie Traffic and is married to Michael Douglas.  That's right, it's Catherine Zeta-Jones! The 45-year-old actress captioned her Instagram photo, "Growing up, I knew I wanted to be on stage. My dream came true at nine, when I was cast in the lead role in Annie. #ThrowbackThursday" Can you imagine little Catherine singing "Tomorrow"? Zeta-Jones is still living the dream 36 years later.  Although she's mainly known for her acting on the big screen, the Chicago actress also made a huge splash with her »

Zoë Kravitz: ‘Why do stories happen to white people and everyone else is a punchline?’

20 August 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor has been stranded on the edges of blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road and the Divergent series, but ahead of new film Dope she’s taking on Hollywood’s stereotypes and making a name for herself

On her first day shooting her first feature, Zoë Kravitz wasn’t allowed to work. Cast as a goth babysitter in the Catherine Zeta-Jones romcom No Reservations, the teenager couldn’t go on set until her designated guardian had signed in. But Lenny Kravitz was running late, and when he eventually arrived, the rock star caused such a stir that the delays simmered on. The film’s director, Scott Hicks, had no idea Zoë was Lenny’s daughter when he cast her; he wasn’t expecting the fuss. So Zoë took control. “She told her dad off,” says Hicks. “He wasn’t late again.”

Kravitz, now 26, doesn’t take any nonsense. »

Bruce Willis Action Comedy 'Red' Is Becoming a TV Show

15 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before long, ever movie will become a TV show in the future. It's certainly not a new idea, as many movies have gotten the TV adaptation treatment. But over the past year, each network has ramped up this idea, abandoning new ideas to instead focus on series that already have a built in audience and title recognition. The latest movie series to head to the small screen is Red, which debuted in 2010 and was followed by a sequel in 2013. NBC is behind this new iteration, though it's not known if Summit Entertainment has now abandoned the idea of another big screen sequel.

NBC is developing the Red TV series as an hourlong action drama that will be directly based on the feature film franchise. The small screen version is coming from the big screen series' creative team. Jon Hoeber and&#160Erich Hoeber, the duo behind both the Red and Red 2 screenplay, »

Dad's Army film - first trailer reports for duty

13 August 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Don’t panic! The new adaptation of the 1970s sitcom that stars Bill Nighy, Toby Jones and Catherine Zeta Jones might not be completely terrible

Big-screen transfers for much-loved television sitcoms tend to follow something of a hit and miss pattern: for every Inbetweeners Movie there’s a League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse, and for every Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa there’s a Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie. And so it is with trepidation that we peer tentatively at the debut trailer for Dad’s Army, the second attempt to translate Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s adored 1970s show for the cinema (following the 1971 UK box office smash), in the potentially vain hope that it will enhance, rather than ruin fond memories of the original.

Watch: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy & Catherine Zeta-Jones Get Wacky In Trailer For 'Dad's Army'

13 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There is a certain strand of British comedy that is quite broad and buffoonish and that may weigh on how well the first trailer for "Dad's Army" plays for you. It's based on a Brit comedy of the same name that ran from the late '60s to late '70s, and the first trailer has arrived for the big screen version that, well, maybe your Dad might dig. Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta Jones, Toby Jones, Daniel Mays, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson and Tom Courtenay star in the Oliver Parker ("Johnny English Reborn") directed comedy flick set on the tail end of WWII that follows a contingent of the Home Guard who have to track down a spy. Here's the official synopsis:  It is 1944 and World War II is reaching its climax. The Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. But in Walmington-on-Sea morale amongst the Home Guard is low. »

Watch: Bradley Cooper Is A Bad Boy Chef In The First Trailer For 'Burnt'

13 August 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the advent of gourmand culture, chefs reaching deity status, hipster pop-up restaurants, and epicurean networks challenging networks in ratings, Hollywood has yet to really tap into foodie zeitgeist. Sure, it’s tried; Catherine Zeta Jones in “No Reservations,” Jon Favreau’s “Chef,” “Julie and Julia,” even David Fincher was toying with the idea of making a film set in the food/chef milieu, but there hasn’t really been a movie that’s captured our modern food phenomenon exactly (though good ones about different eras include “Big Night” and “Like Water For Chocolate” to name just a few). The next in line to try is the not quite inventively titled “Burnt.” Starring four-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper in the lead role (bet you never thought you’d hear that phrase), “Burnt” centers on a former bad boy chef trying to make good and assemble the Avengers of cooking »

Are you excited by the new Dad's Army trailer? Vote in our poll and have your say

13 August 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

After first being teased way back in 2012, a Dad's Army movie was confirmed last year and has a star-studded cast including Catherine Zeta Jones, Bill Nighy and The Inbetweeners' Blake Harrison.

The first pictures looked promising, and a release date was confirmed for February 2016.

"It was one of those jobs where you go, 'No, that's a terrible idea, I don't want anything to do with that, thank you very much'," Toby Jones admitted to us in April about playing Captain Mainwaring - before being swayed by the quality of Hamish McColl's script.

A poster released earlier this week urges us not to panic in true Dad's Army style - but now a full trailer has been unveiled, we've got a much better idea of what to expect from the film.

So having watched a minute of the movie - are you excited about the film, or is it a really, »

Don’t Panic! The Dad’s Army trailer is here

13 August 2015 12:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m not sure how well the upcoming Dad’s Army movie will fare anywhere other than the UK, but the TV show on which it is based is absolutely loved here, and judging by the first teaser trailer for the film, which has just been released, we’re all in for a treat.

The teaser doesn’t feature much footage, but from what we can see, the cast, particularly Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring and Michael Gambon, who is absolutely spot-on with Godfrey.

Here’s the synopsis:

It is 1944 and World War II is reaching its climax. The Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. But in Walmington-on-Sea morale amongst the Home Guard is low. Their new mission then – to patrol the Dover army base – is a great chance to revive spirits and reputation, that is until glamorous journalist Rose Winters arrives to write about their exploits, »

Dad's Army: the first trailer

12 August 2015 9:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The big screen take on Dad's Army arrives in cinemas in 2016. Here's the first trailer...

The big screen take on Dad's Army arrives in cinemas in 2016, and we get our first proper glimpse of it right here.

The movie features Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tony Jones, Michael Gambon, Tom Courenay, Blake Harrison, Bill Paterson and Daniel Mays. And it would be fair to say that they have some big boots to fill, if they want to come close to the majesty of the TV show that the new film is based on.

Oliver Parker directs this one (he previously rebooted St Trinian's, and helmed the likes of Johnny English Reborn and Dorian Gray). Hamish McColl has penned the script.

Here, then, is the first trailer, and the official synopsis. Trailer first...

Looking back at The Phantom

12 August 2015 4:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sergio Leone and Joe Dante at one stage were linked with The Phantom. We look back at Billy Zane's moment in the superhero spotlight.

“Where’s your spirit of adventure?” asks Drax, the film's villain, before setting off in search of the final skull of Touganda. This sums up The Phantom nicely. It might not work, but they went on an adventure and tried something interesting and different. Cinema would be richer with a greater sense of adventure. That said, the spirit of the film being expressed by the villain does serve as an example of what a muddle the team behind The Phantom movie got themselves into.

The 1996 film The Phantom is a bit of an oddity. It gets a lot of stuff really wrong, yet there are other areas where it comes up with a really interesting approach to the challenge of making a comic adaptation. It »

The big-screen remake of the classic BBC comedy will march into cinemas on February 5, 2016.
