News Nuggets: 10 tasty tidbits about the next blood-soaked season of 'Hannibal'

20 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The cast and producers of NBC's "Hannibal" offer their fans new tasty tidbits about the "beautiful, macabre psychological thriller." Appearing at New York's PaleyFest, showrunner Bryan Fuller and stars Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, and Laurence Fishburne discuss the past and what is on the horizon for the third season. They say that "the emotional, blood-soaked" ending of last season was a "crucible" for everyone. Coming up, Hannibal's outfits might become even flashier while he is on the run, and there will not be as many tableaus for the next episodes. They are still pursuing the idea of bringing in Clarice Starling (played in "The Silence of the Lambs" by Oscar winner Jodie Foster). Entertainment Weekly -Break- Brad Pitt and his World War II soldiers in "Fury" take down "Gone Girl" at the box office this weekend. The debut brings in $23.5 million as it also tries to entrance awards voters. »

PaleyFest NY 2014: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Laurence Fishburne and Show Creator Bryan Fuller Talk Hannibal

19 October 2014 9:26 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The twistedly haunting, creepy and unexpected NBC series Hannibal is one of the best shows currently on television.  With shocking revelations, psychological cat-and-mouse games, and intricately detailed murders, it certainly stays with you, long after it airs.  And after the wild Season 2 finale that left everyone in a state of peril, the anticipation for Season 3 and answers for where it will all go next is growing, as fannibals wait for the show’s return.

The Food on Hannibal Is As Delicious As It Looks, Most of the Time

19 October 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hannibal is a show all about intricacies, from the conversations between the characters to the way each murder tableaux is handled with painstaking detail. But the most intricate part of the whole series might be the food preparation. At the PaleyFest panel for Hannibal, the cast and creator Bryan Fuller talked about the incredible attention to detail, the beauty, and, perhaps most important for the audience, the taste of the food the good Dr. Lecter makes for his guests."In watching dailies usually the food is really, really good," Fuller said. "It's not only about looking fantastic; it tastes fantastic," Mads Mikkelsen said. "One time we had a foie gras and we had a wrap on the scene, but we deliberately fucked it up." While it seems that most of the food on the table is delicious, every once in a while there are dishes the cast cannot stomach, such »

Hannibal finds its Lady Murasaki in The Wolverine’s Tao Okamoto

19 October 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hannibal is going to get even crazier in its third season, as Bryan Fuller is now pulling from Thomas Harris’ prequel novel Hannibal Rising for inspiration and new characters. The first character to join the mix is the mysterious Lady Murasaki, Hannibal Lecter’s Japanese aunt, who will be played by The Wolverine and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Tao Okamoto.

Deadline describes her role as follows:

“Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

Lecter’s relationship with Murasaki is pretty dark and complicated, as the two are quasi-romantic. Judging by the way showrunner Bryan Fuller has pulled from the source material thus far, we won’t get a direct translation, but he certainly won’t shy away from the darker psychological implications of their relationship.

Yeah, Hannibal can’t return soon enough.

Tao Okamoto Joins Hannibal Season 3 As Lady Murasaki

18 October 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bryan Fuller has some exciting things planned for Hannibal‘s hotly-anticipated third season, which includes some intriguing new characters from Thomas Harris’ books. While the series has deviated greatly from the source material thus far, Fuller has taken it upon himself to draw inspiration and story beats from novel like Hannibal and The Silence of the Lambs at will, and is tackling the prequel novel Hannibal Rising next.

That, of course, comes with the inclusion of Lady Murasaki, Hannibal’s mysterious Japanese aunt. According to Deadline, Murasaki will be played by The Wolverine and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Tao Okamoto. The site describes her role as follows:

“Okamoto will play the dark and mysterious Lady Murasaki, who possesses an alluring and classical beauty with a dark secret.”

The Perfect Time for Twin Peaks

6 October 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb….

Robert Kojder wrote for Flickering Myth yesterday about the tease of Twin Peaks and it’s timing:

“For those that haven’t seen the show, there is a critical plot point alluding to the narrative continuing 25 years after its initial ending. Twin Peaks left the air 23 years ago, so the timing is beginning to come together. It remains to be seen if these tweets mean anything, but it is exciting to see more teasing of the series possibly making a return.”

It’s funny how stories intertwine and interlock over the course of time. While Richard Linklater creates Boyhood over the course of twelve years, programmes that allude to a moment 25 years in the future, get their comeback at the perfect time.

In fact, with the release of the DVD’s, and the recent BluRay ‘Entire Mystery’ of Twin Peaks, more viewers have »

Redefining a legend: How Mikkelsen’s Hannibal changed the way we look at the villain

1 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When Hannibal first premiered in 2013, no one really expected much. How could a show about one of film’s greatest villains survive on TV, let alone network TV? And from Bryan Fuller, the man who created the delightful Pushing Daisies? But somehow, against all odds, Hannibal has become a visually stunning show that’s among the best and most fully realized on TV.

A prequel to most of the Thomas Harris books and films, Hannibal has forged its own path, creating a world that is a terrifying and dazzling mix of horror and character study. Set before Red Dragon, Hannibal explores the relationship between Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and the emotionally unstable but brilliant FBI consultant Will Graham (Hugh Dancy).

Even before the show started, the series’ chances for survival seemed to land squarely on the shoulders of whomever would be chosen to play Hannibal. Anthony Hopkins’ portrayal had become so legendary, »

Interview: Bryan Fuller Looks Back at Hannibal Season 2 and Teases Season 3

24 September 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the recent release of Hannibal Season 2 to Blu-ray and DVD, I had the opportunity to catch up with Bryan Fuller to get his thoughts on an excellent second season and find out what he’s planning for Season 3:

Looking back at Hannibal’s second season, are you happy with how it turned out?

Bryan Fuller: With Season 2, I was really happy with how it grew organically. When you’re in the middle of it, you’re not sure if you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing. It’s great because that terror bubble keeps you on your toes, but I feel really good about Season 2.

Season 2 saw a push away from the weekly killer format of the first season. Was that intentional or something that also grew organically?

Bryan Fuller: It was a wiggling out of the crime procedural restrictions. I wanted to »

‘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 »

Stars Come Out for NBC’s Fall TV Bash

17 September 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stars, executives and press braved the sweltering Los Angeles heat on Tuesday evening to toast NBC’s new television season, taking refuge in the air-conditioned wood and glass hideaway of Hollywood’s Hyde.

The atmosphere was cheery but comfortably low-key, fitting for a network in the midst of an enviable resurgence, having just emerged as the number one broadcaster for the entire year in the 18-49 demo for the first time since 2004.

NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt and entertainment president Jennifer Salke happily hobnobbed with press and talent all night, while guests nibbled on assorted tacos, risotto and croquettes. “Hannibal” showrunner Bryan Fuller was spotted chatting with “Constantine” executive producer David Goyer, while the young cast members of “Parenthood” and “About a Boy” hung out all night, even visiting the party’s gif booth.

Bryan Fuller on Hannibal, Fannibals, and Finally Having a Show Last More Than 2 Seasons

16 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Fans of the “Fullerverse” — the sometimes-spooky, always-askew macrocosm where TV producer Bryan Fuller’s shows (Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies) are said to take place — have long been cautious about putting down roots there. That’s thanks to Fuller’s track record for making “brilliant but cancelled”–type fare, none of which has lasted more than two seasons. But he’s finally broken his two-and-done curse with Hannibal, his über-macabre take on the modern mythology of Hannibal Lecter, which received a third-season pickup in May. On the eve of Hannibal’s second season arriving on DVD today, we talked to Fuller about Hannibal’s diehard fans (called “Fannibals”), Hannibal’s most divisive characters, and who Kristin Chenoweth could one day play on the show.As someone who’s been a fan of several of your shows, it’s such a pleasure to get to talk to you about a »

It helps, of course, that Mads Mikkelsen’s titular sociopath always commits his bad acts while rocking a three-piece suit.

And in the following exclusive video from the Season 2 DVD (out today), costume designer Christopher Hargadon and executive producers Bryan Fuller and Martha De Laurentiis dish the origin and purpose of Dr. Lecter’s clear plastic “kill suit” — which protects his expensive threads and keeps his DNA trail nearly nonexistent.

‘High Moon’ shoots Bryan Fuller back into space

16 September 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

High Moon

Written by Bryan Fuller and Jim Danger Gray

Directed by Adam Kane

Aired September 15, 2014 on Syfy

While Bryan Fuller’s style may be a bit too quirky, macabre, or esoteric for some audiences, there’s no denying that the man knows how to give good pilot. The first episode of Wonderfalls was an endearing, fast-talking affair that gradually injected fantasy into early 20s/retail ennui. The first episode of Pushing Daisies was nothing less than a storybook brought to life, a vibrant spin on the matters of life, death, and what happens when the order of the two reverses. And the first episode of Hannibal was a visceral, otherworldly affair that made it clear from the outset it wasn’t your parents’ Hannibal Lecter.

That track record leads to a lot of high expectations for High Moon, even though unlike those previous shows the pilot is (likely) all there’s going to be. »

High Moon review

16 September 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ron doesn't see why Syfy's fun, good-looking sci-fi pilot, High Moon, didn't make it to series. There's plenty here to enjoy...

Once upon a time, you couldn't sneeze in the summer without hitting some sort of made-for-tv movie. Sometimes, they'd be specially made for the purpose of airing. Sometimes, they'd just be unused pilots that happened to be edited into a two-hour block to fill a little airtime. For every The Night Stalker, there was a Steel Magnolias, K-9 And Company, or a Riding With Death (which went on to fame via Mystery Science Theater 3000). In other words, the TV movie pilot doesn't always work out all that well. However, you have to give SyFy credit for trying to make something out of nothing with High Moon, the television pilot version of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves.

In the not-too-distant future, the moon has become the new »
