Watch Atlantis series 2's new trailer

29 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Atlantis has released a new series two trailer.

The video, which airs on BBC One at 9pm this evening (October 29), teases storylines for characters including Jason (Jack Donnelly), Hercules (Mark Addy), Pythagoras (Robert Emms) and Ariadne (Aiysha Hart).

Jemima Rooper recently spoke to Digital Spy about the new run, promising a "darker" and "more adult" second series of Atlantis and confirming that she will reappear as Medusa late on.

"I enter around episode eight," she revealed. "You're going to see a short but hard burst of her this series."

The actress added that viewers will witness "a good progression" from the first series, which aired on BBC One in late 2013.

"It seems to be that it's taking a more adult turn, and it's getting darker," she teased. "All the stakes are bigger."

Series two of Atlantis began filming in Wales earlier this year.

The show also features Sarah Parish, Alexander Siddig and Juliet Stevenson, »

Atlantis series 2 almost a ‘reboot’

13 October 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The second series of BBC fantasy series Atlantis is “a completely different show” says cast member, Mark Addy

Returning to BBC One on Saturday the 15th of November is series two of Greek myth-inspired fantasy series Atlantis (well, the first chunk of series two at least. The second run is being split into two sections, one starting in November and the latter airing in early 2015).

After series one, which showed plenty of promise but stumbled in a number of areas, failed to set critics’ worlds on fire, it’s little surprise that the message of the series two launch was all about change.

“They’ve almost rebooted the show” said Hercules actor Mark Addy (Game Of Thrones, The Full Monty), “I think it is a completely different show. It’s not totally different obviously, but it’s different in its nature and it’s an improvement.”

First trailer and start date for Atlantis series 2

6 October 2014 1:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis series 2 kicks off in November - and we've got a brief teaser trailer here...

Fans to Atlantis, rejoice – the mythological BBC show is returning to our screens next month.

The news was broken via Twitter, where the BBC revealed the start date for the second series would be Saturday 15 November.

Robert Emms returns as Pythagoras, Jack Donnelly is set to reappear as Jason, and Hercules will once more be played by Mark Addy.

Following the second series tradition, we’re told "It seems to be that it's taking a more adult turn, and it's getting darker," according to Medusa actress Jemima Rooper. “All the stakes are bigger,” she added.

Mixing up the formula even further, there are cast additions too. The biggest is probably The Fall, In The Flesh and Hollyoaks alumnus Emmett J Scanlan, who is joining proceedings in a currently unannounced role.

10 Games Of Thrones Actors You Recognise But Can’t Place

19 June 2014 6:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

The hit television show Game of Thrones has a tendency to use either very well established actors with dozens of high profile credits to their name, or virtual unknowns who barely have their SAG cards. Most of us know Sean Bean from his dozens of other onscreen deaths, and can be counted on to remember Mark Addy from The Full Monty or Lena Headley from 300. But there are still a handful of actors on the show who fall somewhere in the middle: they look familiar, and you know that you’ve probably seen them in something before, but you can’t for the life of you figure out what it was.

Adding to the confusion is Game of Thrones’ penchant for using extensive wigs, makeup, and a healthy layer of dirt that make it even harder to recognize actors that you’ve likely only ever seen in contemporary garb. »

Will Ferrell To Produce New Movie of ‘The Flintstones’

8 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was a simple idea that became famous worldwide – take the day to day lives of an average American family and transplant them to the Stone Age. A world where a pterodactyl acts as a record player and you drive with your feet – quite literally. Now producing partners Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Stepbrothers and the upcoming Border Guards) have been announced as executive producers of a brand new animated film of The Flintstones.

The 1960s Hanna-Barbera cartoon took the TV ratings by storm but has fared less well at the cinema, ironic given the show’s title sequence features everyone going to the pictures. 1994′s live action Flintstones movie was well-cast, with John Goodman and Elizabeth Perkins as workaday couple Fred and Wilma, but failed to recapture the spirit of the source material. However, it was a box office success so it spawned a minor sequel starring Mark Addy »

Black Sails, Ep. 1.01: “I.” – A pirate life for thee

26 January 2014 3:58 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Black Sails, Season 1: Episode 1 – “I.”

Written by Jonathan E. Steinberg & Robert Levine

Directed by Neil Marshall

Airs Saturday nights at 9 on Starz

Drifting into the largely unexplored waters of television shows based on pirates, Starz has set its swashbuckling seafarer, Black Sails, upon us to fill that deep void Pirates of the Caribbean left in the hearts of every person ever. As we’ve seen with certain zombie series, transitioning between film and television can be a rough process for genres. How does one make a pirate narrative fit into an arc that could potentially span several years? What about the pirate world is worth immersing viewers in it for that long? These are questions that Black Sails has to deal with and tries to address in its pilot. And while “I.” doesn’t have the flare or budget of a proper ships and swords adventure film or a »

Michael Palin to lead new BBC One supernatural drama Remember Me

16 January 2014 2:59 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Michael Palin is to take on his first regular TV role in 20 years.

The actor and TV presenter will lead BBC One's new supernatural thriller Remember Me.

Palin will play a care home resident who witnesses a violent death in the three-part drama.

"I've always loved ghost stories, so playing the lead in one is a very exciting prospect," said the 70-year-old.

Though he has appeared in one-off dramas, Remember Me marks Palin's first series role since Channel 4's acclaimed '90s drama GBH.

Mark Addy (Atlantis) and Jodie Comer (My Mad Fat Diary) will also appear in the series, which starts shooting this week.

BBC One controller Charlotte Moore said: "It's a real coup for us that Michael Palin has chosen to make his return to a leading role for the first time in over 20 years on BBC One, and a testament to Gwyneth Hughes's hauntingly brilliant script. »

Monty Python star will play care home resident who witnesses death in three-part series – his first lead TV role since 1991

Michael Palin will take his first leading role in a TV drama for more than 20 years in BBC1's supernatural thriller Remember Me.

Palin, who will reunite with the rest of Monty Python later this year, plays a mysterious care home resident who is the only witness to a violent death in the three-part series, which began filming in Yorkshire this week.

The star's last leading role in a small screen drama was as a headteacher in Channel 4's acclaimed Alan Bleasdale series GBH, co-starring Robert Lindsay, in 1991.

"This is my first lead role in a TV drama series since GBH. It's also a return to Yorkshire, where I was born, brought up and learned my acting in amateur dramatics," said Palin. "I was attracted to Remember Me not only by the northern setting, »

Zap2it: Did you grow up knowing the Greek myths?

Mark Addy: We learned about them in school.

Zap2it: When did you know you wanted to be an actor?

Mark Addy: I had work experience at York Theatre Royal in the workshop crew. And I started doing that, and I was in theater from the age of 14. And watching actors work, I found fascinating.

Zap2it: Were you in school plays?

Mark Addy: I can't remember.

Zap2it: What other jobs have you had?

Mark Addy: Not a huge amount, really. They told me about drama schools. I was auditioning, and I tried and got into Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. On holidays, I would work crew on shows. You can learn a lot by watching actors work.

Zap2it: How does this version of "Atlantis" strike you?
