Terror at the Mall (BBC2) | iPlayer

Downton Abbey (ITV) | ITV Player

When was the last time you saw a car chase in a TV drama? They used to be as common as adultery, an all-purpose narrative filler and excitement generator. When in doubt, cut to the chase. And then, as if every scriptwriter had been made to attend a road safety course, cars stopped pursuing one another at reckless speed and the chase was suddenly over.

Marvellous; Your Home in their Hands review two Neil Baldwins meet real Lou Macari and real Gary Lineker

25 September 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Toby Jones gives a lovely, very human, performance in Peter Bowkers film of Neil Baldwins life story. If this film were a body part, it would be a heart, and a big one

I wonder if Ricky Gervais saw Marvellous (BBC2). The creator of Derek might have learned something from Toby Jones. You dont need to ham it up, dart your eyes all over the place, hang your head to one side and your mouth open. Sometimes less is more.

I suppose it helps Jones that the person he is playing - Neil Baldwin - is a real one, and around, and he has a life model to work with. Hes not just around, but sometimes he is on screen with him, too. Yes, the real Neil Baldwin joins the pretend Neil Baldwin in his own story like here, sitting together on a bench outside the student union at Keele University. »

Marvellous and the lasting influence of Dennis Potter's dramatic innovations

25 September 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC2 film, starring Toby Jones, displays Potter-esque levels of experimentalism, but the late dramatists influence can be seen in many places, from Twin Peaks to Mrs Browns Boys

Toby Jones and Neil Baldwin in conversation

It can frequently seem to a keen viewer of TV drama that the ones that arent murder mysteries are biographical: a situation symbolised by the choice on Monday nights at 9pm between New Tricks on BBC1 and Cilla on ITV.

But, if the dramatic schedules have to be restricted to fictional corpses and real-life people re-animated, at least a programme going out on Thursday shows that a standard format can be delivered with thrilling originality.

25 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Marvellous: BBC Two, 9pm

A feature-length fact-based drama on the life of Neil Baldwin starring Toby Jones.

Chasing Shadows: ITV, 9pm

But when Vance fails to lead them to Eli's body, Stone starts to even question the other murders supposedly committed by Vance.

10 Movie Directors Who Dated Their Stars

24 September 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

United Artists

Alfred Hitchcock had a thing for blondes. Not only did he cast Hollywood starlets like Tippi Hedren and Janet Leigh in his film, but he often had other, less-professional designs on them. As recounted in the Toby Jones-starring The Girl, Hitch often got as dangerously obsessed with his female actors as the more psychotic male characters in his movies, often attempting to wield his directorial powers over them so they’d give him a chance (because, really, have you ever seen the guy? He made some great films, but we’re glad he stayed mostly behind the camera…). It’s like a more extreme example of the infamous “casting couch”, where aspiring young actors trade, ahem, favours for starring roles.

That’s the darker side of relationships in tinsel town. For others, the Los Angeles landscape isn’t full of predatory men taking advantage of young women – or vice-versa. »

Toby Jones: totally Stoked

21 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Toby Jones has been Alfred Hitchcock and Truman Capote. Now hes facing his biggest challenge yet: depicting the great English eccentric Neil Baldwin

I got on the bus just after Id been on Midlands Today, says Neil Baldwin, and this woman says, Thats where Ive seen you before. TV last night. That was good. Its not the only good thing to have happened to Baldwin in the seventh decade of his life. Last year, he adds, I got an honorary degree from Keele University. This year, a film about my life. Who knows, maybe next year something nice will happen to Stoke City.

It already has, says Toby Jones who plays Baldwin in the film, Marvellous, showing on BBC2 this week. Both men are, extraordinarily, Potters fans. We beat Man City last week, says Baldwin. It was great.

Serena Trailer Stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

14 September 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Rhys Ifans, and Toby Jones, watch the first trailer for director Susanne Bier’s Serena.

Based on the novel by Ron Rash, the period film follows newlyweds George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they maintain a close watch over a burgeoning logging empire in Depression-era North Carolina, ruthlessly ruling the woodlands while fighting off the efforts of environmental activists to turn their land into a national park.

Bier’s latest film, A Second Chance, had its world premiere Tuesday night at the Toronto International Film Festival. Bier won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar for In A Better World (2010) and was also nominated for After The Wedding (2006).

Serena is scheduled for a UK release on October 24. Count on a U.S. release date to be announced soon so it doesn’t miss a bid for awards consideration at year’s end.

The Punisher cameo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier?

14 September 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While at a DVD and Blu-ray signing at Amoeba Music in Hollywood, California for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Russo Brothers were on hand to answer questions from fans who all came in a variety of cosplay.

When asked by Coming Soon about cameos in the movie, the Russos talked about a particular truck that may be driven by a Marvel Universe vigilante who could be getting their own One-Shot down the line. According to the brothers, when Nick Fury is being attacked in the streets, a yellow Penske truck slams into his attackers and then later on in the movie, when Agent Sitwell is thrown into traffic, he is hit by the very same Penske truck. They then gave a very tongue in cheek response to indicate this person may be someone we recognise…

“The man who drives that truck is very highly trained,” joked Joe Russo. “He thinks on his own terms. »

Quiet genius of Toby Jones: From The Hunger Games to Truman Capote, Hollywood can't get enough of British acting's most versatile talent

12 September 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Toby Jones is used to being offered parts that don't seem tailor-made for him, but this was extreme. "My agent said, 'Oliver Stone wants to do a film about Vietnam. They're sending a script over and he wants to meet you tomorrow.' I read the script. It was full of soldiers. I called my agent and said, 'It's about American GIs at the My Lai massacre – which part did he have in mind for me?' He said, 'Any part, apparently. Oliver just wants to meet you.' »

Serena Trailer and Posters: Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Reunite in Long-Delayed Drama

12 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

At long last, the very first Serena trailer and poster for director Susanne Bier’s period drama.  The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as a 1920s newlywed couple who travel to North Carolina to seize control of the timber industry.  Infidelity and infertility leads Serena (Lawrence) to become suspicious of George’s (Cooper) illegitimate son while attempting to keep their timber land from being taken by the government.  Remember all the buzz surrounding Lawrence and Cooper in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook?  Well Serena was actually shot 10 months before the David O. Russell film came out, so you can say this one has been sitting on the shelf for a spell.  This trailer doesn’t make the movie look especially bad—it looks fine—but alas, as the picture is slated to open overseas next month, a U.S. release date remains elusive.
