Re-Viewed: Michael Mann introduces Hannibal in Manhunter

17 February 2015 10:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Last month it was announced that Richard Armitage (The Hobbit's Thorin) is to play Frances Dolarhyde in season 3 of NBC's hit TV series Hannibal. Dolarhyde, a serial killer who leaves bite marks on his victims and is thus granted the nom de plume The Tooth Fairy, will reportedly feature in a six-episode arc touching upon the events of Red Dragon.

It was Red Dragon, both Thomas Harris's 1991 novel and Brett Ratner's 2002 movie, that many articles referenced when reporting the Armitage news, with scribes recalling Ralph Fiennes's haunting portrayal of the home-invasion killer who slays entire families. Less common, but more discerning, were the recollections of Tom Noonan's towering, heavyweight (6'7" and 217lb, to be exact) take on Dolarhyde in Michael Mann's atmosphere-drenched 1986 adaptation, Manhunter.

Mann's movie might have jettisoned Harris's title to avoid confusion with Year of the Dragon, which flopped the previous year, and »

The 2014 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards

9 February 2015 9:54 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards It's hard to believe I've been doing my own brand of "awards" for seven years now. Perhaps because film awards seem to have grown increasingly irrelevant, but when you watch as many movies as I do per year it is nice to sit back and remember the finer moments of the past year, especially when we're stuck in the doldrums of the early year releases, dealing with the likes of Jupiter Ascending, Taken 3, Blackhat and Seventh Son. So, as we are now only a few weeks away from the 87th Annual Academy Awards, it's time to hand out the 2014 RopeofSilicon Movie Awards, looking back on a year that turned out to be much better than it initially appeared it may be. A hard question I'm trying to answer is just what kind of year in movies was 2014c Like previous years, blockbusters came and went. »

Teaser Trailer: "Spooks: The Greater Good"

29 January 2015 12:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The TV series "Spooks," also known as "Mi-5," has often been labelled the British equivalent of "24". It was a spy thriller series that ran for ten years and boasted talents that have since made names for themselves in other projects including David Oyelowo, Richard Armitage, Matthew Macfadyen, Iain Glen, Lara Pulver, Sophia Miles, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keely Hawes, Rupert Penry-Jones, Anna Chancellor and many more.

It was also distinctive because long before "Game of Thrones" and the like, it was not afraid to randomly kill off its core cast members - including its male leading man with the show going through at least four of those across its 86 episode run. Fitting then that 'Thrones' star Kit Harington is the new leading man in the show's jump to the big screen in the new film "Spooks: The Greater Good".

Today, the first trailer and posters for the film have been released, a »

Rutina Wesley To Meet The Red Dragon In ‘Hannibal’

24 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

She’s best known for playing the headstrong Tara in True Blood, but for her next role Rutina Wesley encounters a human monster in the third season of Hannibal. Wesley plays Reba McClane, infamous to readers of the Thomas Harris source novels as the woman who got close to Francis Dolarhyde.

Unbeknownst to her, he is the Tooth Fairy, the serial killer at the heart of first Lecter bestseller Red Dragon – however her blindness makes her literally unseeing as to his true nature. Richard Armitage has been cast as Dolarhyde. The characters were portrayed by Emily Watson and Ralph Fiennes in the 2002 movie adaptation and by Joan Allen and Tom Noonan in Michael Mann’s 1986 version Manhunter.

Wesley and Armitage join new cast member Joe Anderson, who replaces Michael Pitt as Mason Verger. It looks like showrunner Bryan Fuller is really starting to blend the worlds of the series and the books, »
