Better Call Saul episode 9 review: Pimento

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Better Call Saul's excellent penultimate episode sees a bond irrevocably broken. Here's our review of Pimento...

This review contains spoilers.

1.9 Pimento

It seems so obvious now. So obvious that when Howard went to burst Jimmy’s bubble in last episode’s opening flashback, he was acting on Chuck’s say-so. But because I wanted to believe, like Jimmy, that Howard was the bad guy, the major asshole standing in his way, it never occurred to me. At worst, I thought Chuck was a coward who couldn’t bear to break the news to his brother, that he’d been overruled and was embarrassed about it. But now, after Chuck’s behind-the-scenes machinations, sabotaging Jimmy once again, and after the painfully harsh words spat during their final confrontation, it’s all so obvious.

That, to me, is a mark of great writing – that rather than pick up on what’s now so obvious, »

Idris Elba tops Fox’s shortlist to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine‏

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite stating earlier in the month that he hoped to play the character “until he dies”, Hugh Jackman revealed last week that he’s set to hang up the claws as the fan favourite mutant Logan following next year’s follow-up to The Wolverine.

Having been a mainstay of the X-Men franchise since the first movie in 2000, Fox now faces the unenviable task of finding a replacement for Jackman in what has become his signature role. However, the studio seems to be wasting little time in embarking on the hunt, with a shortlist of actors emerging online.

According to reports, Idris Elba is said to be the number one choice to succeed Jackman as the adamantium-clawed mutant, with the British star leading a shortlist which also includes Chris Pine, Ryan Gosling, Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, Dan Stevens and Bryan Cranston. Tom Hardy was also mentioned as a potential candidate, but »

Simon Pegg Answers Questions About Idris Elba’s Role In Star Trek 3

30 March 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

For a while, this interview with Simon Pegg seems to be generating straight answers. And then it doesn’t. Ultimately, the whole thing is hard to read.

Pegg was attending the Empire Awards last night, and his inquisitor, such as she is, was representing Absolute Radio. Rather than asking anything meaningful, or even trying to reconcile the Bryan Cranston and Idris Elba casting reports, she spat out one of last week’s headlines and asked Pegg if it is true.

So is Idris Elba playing a Klingon in the new Star Trek movie?

In Pegg’s words, “That’s not true.” And then he adds that there’s a “rumour” Elba has been spoken to about being in the film.

So far, this all seems like Pegg saying Elba’s in some sort of negotiations, but he won’t be playing a Klingon. And then it all goes bottoms-up and »

Idris Elba Up For Lead Antagonist In ‘Star Trek 3′

28 March 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Idris Elba is easily one of our greatest and most versatile home-grown actors. The Luther star has proven this many times over the past decade, in roles ranging from a battle-hardened commander in Pacific Rim, to South African President Nelson Mandela.

Of course, this has undoubtedly put the London-born actor in extremely high demand, with rumours even placing him as Daniel Craig’s future Bond successor. Now, it has been revealed that Elba has entered early talks to play the lead baddie in Justin Lin’s Star Trek 3. Previous rumours had placed Bryan Cranston as the newest adversary for Kirk and his crew, however it is unknown if he was up for the same role, or merely that talks have now broken down.

While some may still be dissapointed that J.J. Abrams will no longer helm the film, Simon Pegg’s involvement as co-writer was definitely music to the ears of many die-hard fans. »

9 Reasons Why the 'X-Files' Revival Matters

27 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Admit it, millennials: When the news broke Tuesday that FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be returning to the Fox network for a six-episode reboot of "The X-Files," many of you said, "Who are Mulder and Scully?" After all, the show has been off the air for 13 years. Since then, Gillian Anderson (Scully) moved to England and did period dramas, while David Duchovny (Mulder) became that creepy old lech on Showtime's "Californication," and "X-Files" creator Chris Carter went Mia and was apparently abducted by aliens.

Still, even if "The X-Files," its stars, and its creator haven't been pinging the cultural radar much in recent years, the return of the show with its original cast and showrunner on board is a huge deal. Much of what we now take for granted in pop culture -- especially on TV and online -- owes a tremendous debt to the 1993-2002 sci-fi drama series. »

The second installment had its fair share of critics . actually, a lot of them . but the Sherlock star bathed his lines with glorious purpose. Who could possibly top that?

Idris Elba in Talks to Be the 'Star Trek 3' Villain

25 March 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The buzz around Hollywood is that Idris Elba is in the running to be the main villain in "Star Trek 3." Variety reports that the "Luther" star is in "early talks" for the role, although there's no more info on what the role will be or who exactly the Big Bad of "Star Trek 3" will be.

In February, a rumor surfaced that Bryan Cranston was being eyed for the role of the villain, but maybe there's more than one villain? The more, the merrier! There are a ton of possible villains for "Star Trek 3," from Klingons to the Borg, so writers Simon Pegg (yes, that Simon Pegg) and Doug Jung have plenty to choose from.

"Star Trek 3" will star Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin. There have been some interesting behind-the-scenes changes since the film was first announced a few years ago, »

Up-and-comer Scott Haze is reteaming with his “Child of God” director James Franco for Franco’s next directorial outing, “In Dubious Battle.”

The pic’s ensemble already includes Franco, Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride. Ambi Group is financing the film and producing with Rabbit Bandini Productions and That’s Hollywood Pictures Productions.

The original novel by John Steinbeck portrays the struggle between labor and capital in 1930s America as close to all-out warfare. Published in 1936, “In Dubious Battle” is considered Steinbeck’s first major work. Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck later continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man.
