First Trailer for Peter Strickland's New Film 'The Duke of Burgundy'

18 December 2014 8:58 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This is all I have dreamed about..." IFC has debuted the first trailer for Peter Strickland's new film The Duke of Burgundy, a seductive and creepy little thriller. Strickland's last film was the mesmerizing Berberian Sound Studio with Toby Jones, which was quite a trip if you saw it. This new one has much of the same, it's twisted and weird and eerie, using cinema to evoke and provoke. The Duke of Burgundy stars Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara D'Anna as two women who get into a tricky relationship. The film received quite a bit of buzz out of Tiff and Fantastic Fest this year, with many critics calling it one of the best discoveries of this year's fall film fests. It's worth a look, especially if you're curious about butterflies. Here's the first official trailer for Peter Strickland's The Duke of Burgundy, in high def from Apple: »

These are Digital Spy's best TV shows for 2014 - starting with 25-21. Check back tomorrow (December 16) for numbers 20-16.

25. Girls

After two seasons of trading on the messy dysfunction of its twentysomething heroines, Lena Dunham made the bold move of letting her character Hannah spend season three stable, happy and employed.

Far from harming the show, this flip breathed new life into it – Hannah's relationship with bad boy-turned-good Adam produced truthful, emotional character comedy, nowhere more so than in the funny-yet-agonising role-play episode.

Having Hannah be "the stable one" also gave the other three girls room to really go to pieces, with Allison Williams's Marnie particularly glorious in meltdown (and in song). And this season contained, in quick succession, »

Detectorists – box set review: this gentle tale of treasure-hunting folk struck TV gold

4 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones as bickering friends Andy and Lance are a delightful double-act in this wistful, subtle comedy

Mackenzie Crook is Andy, a dedicated member of the Danebury Metal Detecting Club. He and his friend Lance – played by Toby Jones, wonderful in his first comedy role – bumble through the Hampshire countryside, chatting and looking to discover something that will make them rich. The odds, however, are stacked against this incompetent duo, who go hunting for things like Saxon stone circles unaware that what they’ve seen on the map is actually a Google watermark. But hope keeps pushing them out to the fields, both believing each new beep might be ancient treasure, even though it’s probably yet another Kit Kat wrapper.

Although billed as a comedy, this BBC4 show, which Crook also wrote, might not be side-splitting, but that’s not to say it isn’t funny, »

Dad's Army: Pike actor Ian Lavender 'shocked' by Blake Harrison's scarf

28 November 2014 6:36 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dad's Army actor Ian Lavender has criticised the costuming of the forthcoming big-screen reboot of the classic sitcom.

Lavender, who played Private Pike on the show, has taken issue with the scarf worn by his counterpart Blake Harrison in the film version.

Lavender spotted the difference between the scarf he wore and the scarf now worn by Harrison while shooting a cameo on set.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail, Lavender said: "It looked like a banana split to me. I'm colour blind so I'm not sure what colours it was, but there was definitely a yellow in there.

"It certainly wasn't an Aston Villa scarf. I was deeply shocked."

He added: "I'm not sure why they changed it. I'm told it was already committed to film by the time I got there so there wasn't a lot I could do about it."

Bill Nighy and Catherine Zeta-Jones are among the cast of the forthcoming film. »

Mark Gatiss has revealed that he was "sceptical" about the upcoming Dad's Army movie remake.
