Death Stranding Will Not Be at E3 2017 Says Kojima; E3 Coliseum Revealed

7 June 2017 2:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

One of the most surprising games of E3 2016, Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, will not be on stage this year when Sony presents their wares.  Read Kojima's tweet below and see if you can decipher it.  Plus, find out when you can see the man, himself, live and in person at E3!

When we began on the long, winding road to E3 2017, one of the games we were most excited to get an update on was Hideo Kojima's first game since Konami, Death Stranding.  Alas, we aren't so lucky this year as Kojima has tweeted out that his team has decided to forego E3 2017 in favor of spending that time developing.  That didn't mean Kojima, himself, wouldn't still be in attendance, though.

Apologies to our fans, Death Stranding will not be @ E3 as we are fully focused on development. Pls see me with @geoffkeighley on 6/14! »

Cannes Hidden Gem: 'I Am Not a Witch' Satirizes Sorcery in Modern-Day Zambia

21 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

“She turned me into a newt!” claims John Cleese’s muddy-cheeked peasant in the famed Monty Python and the Holy Grail scene in which a woman (his then wife Connie Booth, no less) is accused of being a witch by a bunch of rowdy medieval villagers. Looking a little shifty about his distinctly un-lizardlike appearance, he then adds: “I got better.”

First-time feature helmer Rungano Nyoni might not be aiming for Python-esque lunacy in I Am Not a Witch, a “present-day satire about beliefs in witchcraft” set and shot in Zambia that is one of the most eye-catching titles »

Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience — the review

18 May 2017 3:42 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There’s a thing that’s been happening in London since 2012 (and elsewhere around the world for 20 years). Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience is exactly what it sounds like, if not what it spells like. It replicates the abusive experience of being served a meal by noted hotelier and ball of rage Basil Fawlty in the just-about-serviceable dining room of his Torquay lodging establishment Fawlty Towers, where they are always out of waldorfs for the salad. Faulty Towers has started a new permanent residency at the Kingsway Hall Hotel in Covent Garden (not far from Holburn tube station), and I recently attended a performance.

Manuel has a most likely foolproof method of clearing the table between courses.

It is an absolute riot. I have not laughed so hard in ages.

The production goes out of its way to explain that the original scripts for the classic 1970s BBC sitcom are not used in this event. »

John Cleese to Star in a British Sitcom for First Time in Nearly 40 Years

11 April 2017 4:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John Cleese is set for a return to a BBC sitcom for the first time since “Fawlty Towers,” the broadcaster said Tuesday. The “Monty Python” legend will co-star alongside actress Alison Steadman in new six-part comedy series “Edith,” which has been commissioned for BBC One.

Created and written by Charles McKeown, who was Oscar-nominated for 1985’s “Brazil” directed by Cleese’s fellow Python Terry Gilliam, “Edith” will also star Jason Watkins, Jessica Hynes, Anne Reid, Rosie Cavaliero, James Cosmo and Peter Egan. The show re-teams Cleese and Steadman, who played husband and wife in Christopher Morahan’s 1986 film “Clockwise.”

“If you had carte blanche on your fantasy BBC One comedy cast then you’d not be far off the ‘Edith’ line-up,” said Shane Allen, controller of comedy commissioning at the BBC. “It’s also a huge pleasure to welcome John Cleese back to the land of BBC sitcom – his last one did all right.”
