Atlantis episode 5 preview: 'It's not the Dion we knew'

12 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Find out what happens next on Atlantis with a Digital Spy exclusive clip.

Hercules (Mark Addy) is seen leading Ariadne (Aiysha Hart), Pythagoras (Robert Emms) and others into the cave system as they search for Jason (Jack Donnelly), before they stumble upon a gruesomely transformed Dion (Vincent Regan).

Tomorrow night's episode, 'Day of the Dead', sees the fractured Atlanteans struggle to hunt down their friend before he falls prey to an army of flesh-eating monsters.

As Jason fights for his life in the underground warren, he joins forces with the mysterious and magical Medea (Amy Manson).

A seemingly helpful ally, the question remains: can she really be trusted and where do her loyalties lie?

Atlantis continues tomorrow (December 13) at 8.15pm on BBC One. »

Atlantis series 2 episode 5 review: The Day Of The Dead

12 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The gang is battling zombies in an Atlantis episode that nods towards the horror genre. Here's Dave's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 The Day Of The Dead

As ever, let's kick off with a short recap of tonight's action.

Pasiphae's life is in peril and she uses the last of her strength to cast an incantation upon a handy sarcophagus, awakening the body within. Her magic rapidly spreads throughout the Necropolis, reanimating more of the deceased.

With Hercules and Pythagoras hunting for Jason, who has seemingly fallen to his doom, Ariadne fears she may have lost the man she truly loves. Together with Orpheus and Euridice, they must first fight the zombie hordes.

Jason, in the meantime, is facing a moral quandary as he finds himself trapped with Medea, Pasiphae's aide, surrounded by more of the zombie hordes. The new arrangement, as Jason tries to save her, disorientates Medea's moral »

Atlantis series 2 episode 4 review: The Marriage Of True Minds

6 December 2014 2:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's a darker episode for Atlantis this week, but a well-written and strongly acted one. Here's Dave's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 The Marriage Of True Mind

Let's begin with a short recap of tonight's action. Having failed to secure Atlantis for herself, Pasiphae is worshipping the dark gods and it's revealed, in short order, that Telemon is working with the wicked woman. He’s been promised a place in her court when she comes to power as long as he leads Ariadne to her death.

Convincing Ariadne that he needs his father's blessing for the marriage, Telemon manages to draw the Queen out of the court, much to the concern of Jason. Unable to convince her she's doing the wrong thing, Jason, Pythagoras and Hercules set out to ensure the Queen remains safe and join the retinue that will escort her.

As chaos ensues, Telemon seizes the opportunity to attack, »

Atlantis series 2 episode 3 review: Telemon

29 November 2014 8:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new prince arrives in Atlantis against the backdrop of combat in this week's tightly plotted episode. Here's Dave's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 Telemon

Ariadne, it seems, has finally risen in stature to the role of Queen, beloved by her people. With the Coronation Games only a few days away, Ariadne must choose a champion whilst she hides her love for Jason and her intent to hunt down Pasiphae.

With Jason selected as her champion, Hercules' secret is making him an angry man, much to the disapproval of Pythagoras. With the secret now shared, and Hercules reinforcing their position as protectors of the secret and of Jason's destiny, Hercules sets out to train Jason and they come across Telemon, another warrior intent on winning the games.

Pythagoras doesn't trust Telemon, though Hercules thinks differently. It's made even more suspect when Telemon is revealed to be a prince, just what »

Atlantis series 2 episode 2 review: A New Dawn: Part Two

22 November 2014 8:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis continues the strong start made by its series two opener with a battle-heavy episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 A New Dawn Part Two

With the city under attack and Jason trapped in a cave with Pythagoras and Hercules, Pasiphae has the upper hand with her amassed forces clearly outnumbering the best that Atlantis has to offer.

Jason and his companions risk their lives to bring The Palladium home and must escape from the lair of the Cyclops in order to do so, whilst Ariadne must fight enemies from within and without. Pasiphae is confident that Atlantis is hers and, as two armies collide, faith and love are tested, lives are lost and a secret is revealed that must be buried or darkness will fall upon Jason and his adopted home.

Atlantis: The fantasy drama's most spectacular stunts

21 November 2014 6:12 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Go behind the scenes on Atlantis with a look at some of the show's most spectacular stunts.

Jack Donnelly (Jason), Robert Emms (Pythagoras) and Mark Addy (Hercules) all appear in a new clip exploring the fantasy drama's epic action sequences.

Atlantis returned to BBC One for its second series last Saturday (November 15) with 'A New Dawn: Part One'.

The show's stars have promised that series two is "much darker [and] much more action-packed" than its 2013 episodes.

"Every part of it is so much more layered and deep - the characters are more layered, their relationships are more complex," said Aiysha Hart, who plays Ariadne.

Atlantis continues this Saturday at 8.15pm on BBC One. »

Atlantis series 2 episode 1 review: A New Dawn: Part One

14 November 2014 6:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis makes a welcome return with an action-packed start to a more grown-up second series...

This review contains spoilers.

2.1 A New Dawn Part One

Atlantis series 2 is, it seems, a rebirth for the series, with actors Mark Addy (Hercules) and Jack Donnelly (Jason) suggesting in interviews that writer Howard Overman and producers Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps have created an improvement on the first.

This time around, the show's creators seem to be taking advantage of the storytelling opportunities offered by Atlantis' 8.30pm timeslot, after the mis-step in the first season that saw a programme being broadcast at close to the watershed without any of the maturity that an audience would expect at that time. While A New Dawn Part One wasn't full of nudity, violence and gore, it’s certainly dramatically darker than series one

Starting with King Midas' funeral and Pasiphae attacking, Ariadne darkly states that “this »

Atlantis: Everything you need to know about a deeper, darker series 2

14 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"It's not the follow-up you would expect."

Atlantis returns to BBC One tomorrow night, but the series that'll be airing every Saturday for the next 13 weeks is very different from the one that went out in late 2013.

Here's everything you need to know about the new and improved fantasy drama, courtesy of its cast.

Atlantis just got darker

"Every part of it is so much more layered and deep - the characters are more layered, their relationships are more complex," says Aiysha Hart, who plays Ariadne.

"I don't think it was bad [before], but it's so different this year," agrees Robert Emms, the bookish Pythagoras. "It's much darker, much more action-packed, it's more serialised.

"I know people who didn't get on with it [last series] and I really want them to watch it. I really hope we gain a new audience - I think we deserve it."

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 »
