Cinemax Hands Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick An Early Second Season Renewal

11 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A month ahead of its series premiere, Cinemax has seen fit to renew its period medical drama The Knick, from “retired” filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, for a second season of 10 episodes. Excitingly, Soderbergh, who executive-produced and directed all 10 episodes of the first season, will be returning to helm the entire second season as well. News of the pick-up comes just days after Soderbergh revealed that he was planning a second season, so Cinemax likely jumped at the chance to keep him around.

Set in downtown New York at the turn of the twentieth century, The Knick focuses on the doctors, nurses and staff of Knickerbocker Hospital as they push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.

Clive Owen stars in the series as Dr. John W. Thackery, a doctor at Knickerbocker who is forced to make bold medical decisions with his limited resources »

Cinemax’s ‘The Knick’ Renewed for Season 2 Ahead of Series Premiere

10 July 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cinemax has renewed Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick” for season 2 ahead of its series premiere on Aug. 8, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour.

The second season will also consist of 10 episodes. Soderbergh confirmed he will direct the entire season, as he did with season 1. Set in downtown New York in 1900, “The Knick” centers on the Knickerbocker Hospital and its groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.

“I’m going to do all 10 — you’re seeing a trend now of … a sense that there’s a positive aspect to having a visual language that’s very specific and very unified throughout the show,” Soderbergh noted. “It’s not only creatively satisfying, but also, practically speaking, better … in terms of economics … we schedule it like a film.”

Rumors of Soderbergh’s retirement were apparently greatly exaggerated, »

Watch: First Full Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s ‘The Knick’ Series

17 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Game of Thrones” may be over for the season, but the summer will have no shortage of bloody scripted TV. The Steven Soderbergh-directed Cinemax drama “The Knick,” for which the trailer dropped Tuesday, is one such show that will contribute to the trend.

Clive Owen stars as Dr. John W. Thackery in the show that follows the doctors, nurses and staff of the Knickerbocker Hospital in downtown New York in 1900 as they push the boundaries of medicine. However, what was then modern medicine is a lot different than what we know today — the morality rates are higher, and there seems to be a lot more blood.

“With every blow I mend, every extra year I give to a patient, I know that at the very least, something has been won,” Owen’s voiceover says in the trailer.

With a similar dark tone to Showtime’s new “Penny Dreadful,” the »

Watch: Clive Owen and Steven Soderbergh Trip Back to 1900 In First Trailer for 'The Knick'

17 June 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If the words "Clive Owen directed by Steven Soderbergh" weren't enough to get you excited about the upcoming Cinemax series "The Knick," here's the first trailer, which features Owen praising "modern" medicine (the show is set 114 years in the past) while chaos swirls around him.  Moving at a steady but intense pace, the trailer doesn't feature much of the cast (which includes André Holland, Eve Hewson, Juliet Rylance, Michael Angarano, Maya Kazan and Matt Frewer) but does promise horse-drawn carriages and old-timey surgery. Even from this first glimpse, "The Knick" looks like nothing currently on the airwaves, which is always a good thing -- but hopefully, you're not too squeamish.  Watch the trailer below -- the series premieres August 8th at 10pm.

Empire State DVD Review

12 March 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Dito Montiel.

Starring: Liam Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Angarano, Nikki Reed, Emma Roberts, Shenae Grimes.

Certificate: 15.

Running Time: 90 minutes.

Chris (Hemsworth), starts work as a security guard. After realising that his new place of employment is really slack in the security department he seizes the chance to make things better for his friends and family.

Don’t let the high-octane DVD cover or the inclusion of Dwayne Johnson fool you, Empire State is not a fast-paced, action-packed film. Instead it’s a rather slow, clunky affair.

Although based on a true story of an inside heist, the plot is very muddled, with loose ends and undeveloped plot points scattered everywhere.

The biggest let down of the film would have to be Hemsworth himself. Cast in the lead, it’s clear that he’s not ready to shoulder a film yet. His character is supposedly meant to be an Italian-American »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 3rd 2014

3 March 2014 4:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one.

At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content being added and when you logged into the Ios app for Lovefilm/Amazon post switchover, suddenly you were faced with A Lot of new content, things like Aliens, Congo, Cujo, Invaders from Mars and lots of HBO shows including Eastbound and Down, Enlightened and the Sopranos as well as Community in the ‘Recently Added’ section.

Of course this was too good to be true and you could add these to your watchlist but then not actually watch them. So when things calmed down and you logged back in, these titles it turned out were part »

The English Teacher DVD Review

26 February 2014 9:34 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Craig Zisk

Starring: Julianne Moore, Michael Angarano, Nathan Lane, Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins, Jessica Hecht, Norbert Leo Butz, Charlie Saxton, Nikki Blonsky, Sophie Curtis

 Running Time: 87 Minutes

Certificate: 15

The world of cinema has always had a certain need to deify teachers and present their actions as what forms the foundations of their students’ lives. As a teacher myself you would probably expect me to be okay with such a portrayal, but in actual fact it kind of undermines the importance of the job in real life terms. One thing that The English Teacher has going for it, is that it takes a rather bitter look at the need to inspire, which is a refreshing change if nothing else.

Linda Sinclair (Moore) is a 45 year old spinster who may have resigned herself to a life living in her books, but she also keeps an eye out for potential love interests. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

19 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...

25. A Perfect Getaway

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2005

15 January 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 16 Jan 2014 - 06:20

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 2005...

It's underappreciated films time again, and this week, we delve deep into the year 2005 - a collection of months dominated by the likes of Star Wars: Episode III, another Harry Potter, Steven Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, Peter Jackson's King Kong, and CG family movie Madagascar.

It was also the year Pierce Brosnan formally bowed out of his role as James Bond, and Martin Scorsese's The Aviator was hyped to win the director his first Oscar, but didn't. Still, the contents of this list received nothing like the acclaim of The Aviator, nor the financial pickings of a Star Wars or Harry Potter. As ever, we've focused on 25 films which we think deserve a bit more love.

So with apologies to »
