Bates Motel season 3 episode 3 review: Persuasion

25 March 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

So far, Bates Motel isn't really breaking new ground in season 3, but even its quieter instalments bode well and keep things interesting...

This review contains spoilers.

3.3. Persuasion

There’s a great moment in Mad Men when Pete Campbell describes his extramarital affair as a ‘temporary bandage over a permanent wound’. This line always resonated as such a perfect description of feeling like you’re faced with an impossible problem and the ways in which we can clutch at any potential solution to escape. At the end of season two, Norman passed his polygraph test and this seemed like a brief victory for the fractured family at the heart of this series; yet the deeper problem remained. Norman is still irreparably damaged and as much as she might try to deny it, Norma knows this. The problem is that she can’t truly hide the fact from Norman, and her barely »

Marvel's Spider-Man May Be 16-Year-Old Mateus Ward

23 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite all of the talk and speculation to the contrary, it appears that when we get our next big screen Spider-Man, it will in fact be Peter Parker. And as the web slinger prepares to make his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it sounds as though we.ll also be looking at a younger version of the character, as the studio has reportedly auditioned 16-year-old actor Mateus Ward for the role. According to Badass Digest, Ward, a teenage actor whose resume includes shows like Hostages, Murder in the First, and Weeds, has secretly read for the part of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As you may have noticed, he.s actually a few years younger than the likes of Dylan O.Brien, Sam Strike, and Freddie Highmore, all of whom have been mentioned in regards to the role, and are all in their early 20s. »

Ansel Elgort on Spider-Man rumours: 'It'd be a big commitment'

23 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ansel Elgort has addressed speculation linking him to the role of Spider-Man.

Sony is reportedly seeking an actor younger than Andrew Garfield to take over the role of Spider-Man in a new film rumoured to be directed by Drew Goddard.

Do we really need another Spider-Man?

The Fault in Our Stars star has been mentioned as a candidate for the role by multiple media outlets in recent weeks, but he appeared unsure of such a commitment in a recent interview.

"I like Captain America, I thought that was a dope film, really cool but I don't know, I've never done [a superhero role]," he told Screenrant.

He went on to say: "I think it would be a big thing to do and a big commitment."

Josh Hutcherson, Freddie Highmore and Donald Glover are among the actors who have expressed interest in playing the web-slinger.

Spider-Man will be featured in upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, »

We wind up our coverage of the new season Bates Motel talking with Freddie Highmore. So is Norman Bates really a bad guy, or just misunderstood and how much of Freddie is really in that character? Plus he may be the real super villain of March Madness. Why does everyone hate Christian Lattener?

Bates Motel season 3 episodes 1 & 2 review: A Death In The Family & The Arcanum Club

20 March 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Season 3 of Bates Motel looks to be continuing season 2's legacy in making this Psycho prequel must-watch TV...

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 A Death In The Family, 3.2 The Arcanum Club

Bates Motel is a difficult show for me to watch objectively, as Psycho is my all-time favourite movie and I’m going to like just about anything connected to it (apart from the remake; that was just offensive). Unlike Hannibal, another series based on a horror property I love very much, I’ve never quite been able to figure out if I like Bates Motel because of its Psycho connection or because it’s a great show in its own right. But the fact that I’m asking that question at all probably answers it; Hannibal, after all, is unquestionably brilliant with or without an intimate understanding of the source material.

A key difference, however, is that Bates Motel is »

18 March 2015 10:03 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

After being a ratings hit for A&E in its first season, Bates Motel saw a significant drop in the ratings in season two. Will the numbers continue to drop this time around? Cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned.

Set in the small town of White Pine Bay, Oregon, Bates Motel tells the story of a teenage Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga). Others in the cast include Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke, Nestor Carbonell, Kenny Johnson, Nicola Peltz, Ryan Hurst, Tracy Spiridakos, Kevin Rahm, and Joshua Leonard.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available. (more…) »

The next episode, "The Arcanum Club", airs tonight at 9:00pm Est and we recently had the chance to take part in an interview call with actor Freddie Highmore (Norman) and writer/executive producer Kerry Ehrin.

On the approach taken with the character of Norman Bates in season three:

Jackson-Cohen, Arango, Posner Set For ‘The Healer’ (Exclusive)

16 March 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Brit actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen (NBC’s “Dracula,”  “World Without End”) will star in “The Healer,” a feel-good drama marking Spanish director Paco Arango’s follow-up to his standout 2011 debut “Maktub” that will be produced by Enrique Posner (“Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” ”Justin and the Knights of Valor”).

Based on what Posner describes as a “highly personal original script,” “The Healer” is in itself a highly singular and inspiring project, yoking Arango’s love of filmmaking and his continuing life battle to help children fight cancer: A large portion of the proceeds from “The Healer” will be destined to help Paul Newman’s camps for seriously ill children (https://www.seriousfunnetwork.org/), where Arango is a board member.

Written by Arango, and set to roll June 6 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, “The Healer” is produced by Arango and Posner, using Arango’s Calcon shingle, and by »

‘Game of Thrones’ & ‘Bates Motel’ Bring Superfans to SXSW

15 March 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Game of Thrones” made its mark on SXSW once again for the 2015 fest.

HBO’s megahit lured its mega-fans to Austin, Texas, to test out their sword skills, a la Arya Stark, at the show’s virtual art installation at the Interactive Festival, aptly named “SXSWesteros.”

The activation brought in thousands of enthusiasts over the weekend, resulting in a line wrapped around the block in downtown Austin. The line to get into #SXSWesteros was so long on Saturday, it had to be cut an hour and half early to ensure everyone waiting would get inside to sword train, take a seat — and photo — in the iron throne and take a sip of “Got’s” newest beer, Three-Eyed Raven ale, which will be available nationwide on April 1.

A group in line told Variety the “Game of Thrones” installation was the main reason they came to SXSW. Another superfan arrived to the »

‘Bates Motel’ Ratings Fall In Season Debut; ‘The Returned’ Opens Ok

10 March 2015 3:07 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Things got a little creepy on A&E last night, and not just because of the content of Monday's dual premieres. First off, the Season 3 debut of Bates Motel saw the contemporary Psycho starring Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore take a 30% fall among adults 18-49 from its Season 2 opener on March 3 last year. That 0.9 rating for the 9 Pm show wasn't the only 30% drop from the S2 debut. The opening of this 10-episode cycle of Bates Motel had a total viewership of 2.14 million… »

Ready to check back into A&E's Bates Motel? With the season three premiere airing tonight, you don't have to wait long.

We recently had the chance to take part in an interview call with Farmiga, Cuse, and Ehrin, who discussed what's in store for Norma and Norman's strained relationship in season three, new cast members, learning Slipknot songs on guitar in between scenes, the number of seasons planned for Bates Motel, and more.

The character, portrayed by Freddie Highmore, will find himself battling for his very soul, according to the show’s co-creator. “Season 3 is very much about the characters figuring out right from wrong and walking through that murky terrain,” showrunner Kerry Ehrin told TheWrap during an on-set press junket. “Norman has definitely got to the point where he finds himself torn between two .

‘Bates Motel’s’ Freddie Highmore Admits His Mom-Cuddling Character Is ‘a Bit of a Perv’ (Video)

Freddie Highmore‘s mentally unstable protagonist goes from snuggling with his mom to spying on showering strippers when A&E’s “Bates Motel” returns on Monday for its Season 3 debut. But the 23-year-old British actor is used to playing a rather peculiar Norman Bates. “He’s a bit of a perv, isn’t he, at times,” Highmore told TheWrap. “But a nice guy, too.” Highmore revealed much of Season 3 deals with Norman’s borderline incestuous relationship with his mother Norma (played by Vera Farmiga): “The first shot of the third season is Norma and Norman spooning in bed, so that sets the tone, »

Freddie Highmore “would love to be considered” for new Spider-Man

9 March 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the huge news that Sony and Marvel will be rebooting the Spider-Man series once more to allow for the character’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve heard a whole host of names linked to the role of the new wall-crawler.

We recently heard from rumoured front-runner Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner), who denied reports linking him to the film whilst admitting he would be keen to take on the part, and now Bates Motel star Freddie Highmore has thrown his hat into the ring during an interview with IGN:

“Obviously, I would love to be considered. That would be fantastic. I guess we’ll just see how things go. You always feel like you can identify with [Spider-Man]. He’s that kind of guy at school who wasn’t perhaps in the really cool group, but who was extremely intelligent and managed to find confidence in »
