‘Hannibal: The Complete Season Two’ DVD Review

19 September 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne | Created by Bryan Fuller

What is it about the character of Hannibal Lecter that draws us in? Gaspard Ulliel’s version in Hannibal Rising may not have had the same success as Anthony Hopkins or Mads Mikkelsen but Lecter is adored by the fans, even as one of the greatest monsters in movie history.  Watching Hannibal: The Complete Season Two especially the final episode you can’t help but feel that the show has peaked in such a glorious manner, can it get any better?

The second season of Hannibal is a story of two halves, the first being Wil Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) fight to get out of the mental asylum and have people believe that Lecter is the guilty one, and the second half introduces the Vergers and the battle of wits of Graham and Lecter.  With the »

Emily S. Whitten’s Grand San Diego Adventure: Hannibal Edition

12 August 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The TV show Hannibal, now entering season 3, is disturbing and fascinating and disgusting and beautiful and horrifying (depending on the scene), which is probably why I can’t stop watching it! And it’s certainly full of surprises as well. Based on the Thomas Harris novels, Bryan Fuller has called his team’s take on the character and stories a “mash-up,” which I like because it means they can revisit old material but still give it new twists.

At San Diego Comic-Con this year, I got to learn about some of the upcoming twists and turns at the aptly named “Hannibal Pannibal,” and at the cast and crew interviews afterwards. And now, I get to share all of that with you!

So if you want to see some fun pics from the Hannibal Pannibal and interviews, check them out here. You can also check out Hugh Dancy (Will Graham)’s »

Is Hannibal Lecter Gay? 'Hannibal' Stars Answer [Exclusive]

7 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) relationship features significant homoerotic subtext on NBC’s Hannibal. While some involved in the project shrug off the gay undertones, others acknowledge that something does seem to be going on between the two characters.

Is Hannibal Lecter Gay?

Actor Scott Thompson, who plays Jimmy Price on Hannibal, thinks it’s perfectly possibly that things could turn overtly sexual between Lecter and Graham. Putting himself in their shoes, Thompson, who is openly gay, can empathize with the idea of someone consenting to sex with a person not of their preferred gender.

“Most people just need a little nudge into [a] sexuality that’s not in their world. And I think everybody probably have someone that’s the wrong gender that they could have sex with,” Thompson told uInterview, explaining, “You know, if Michelle Rodriguez came at me with a strap on I might go, »

'Hannibal' Season 2 Gag Reel: Bloopers Abound Over The Cannibal's Dinner Table

30 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Hannibal might be one of the more serious dramas on TV, but the cast and crew apparently have much to laugh about while filming the NBC horror series.

'Hannibal' Gag Reel

Mads Mikkelson (Dr. Hannibal Lecter), Hugh Dancy (Will Graham), Caroline Dhavernas (Dr. Alana Bloom) and Laurence Fishburne (Jack Crawford) are all featured to the gag reel from Hannibal’s dark sophomore season.

While Mikkelson’s Dr. Lector is all about precision and high standards, the actor himself apparently struggles with the task of tying a tie. After stumbling with the accessory, Mikkelson also had trouble pulling a suit vest on. Gillian Anderson, who will be a series regular for season 3, also had trouble with an accessory, repeatedly losing a mic down the front of her dress.

Some of the most disturbing scenes to watch on Hannibal center around the cannibalistic epicurean’s dinner table, on which his »

'Hannibal' co-stars on the risks and laughs of life on a serial killer drama

30 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Hannibal" stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen couldn't make it to Comic-Con this year, but the bulk of the show's supporting cast — including Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, and surprise returnee Raul Esparza — were able to be in San Diego, and I got a chance to sit down with the four of them the morning after their lively Comic-Con panel. We talked about the unexpected reprieve for Esparza's Dr. Chilton, the "Hannibal" supporting player trap of being more in danger the more you're given to do, how the show will look with Price and Zeller as the only completely healthy good guy characters left, and a lot more.  »

26 July 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If you haven’t watch the best show on network television, NBC’s Hannibal, you should stop reading.  Also, what the hell is wrong with you?

On Wednesday, creator Bryan Fuller revealed some shocking news on how the third season will unfold during a Comic Con panel.  Where last we left the serial killer genre’s most notorious cannibal, he disappeared into the rain after leaving a bloodbath in his luscious house.  Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) was nearly gutted.  Jack Crawford (Lawrence Fishburne) was in a wine cellar with an ice pick in the jugular, and Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) was bleeding out after being thrown from a second-story window.

Here are some key points, as reported by The Av Club.

- The season will take place a year after the incidents of season two.

- Abigail Hobbs (Kacey Rohl) will make another appearance, but that’s not to »
