Tom Hardy Is Like A Man Possessed In Intense First Promos For FX’s Taboo Miniseries

29 November 2016 7:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether it’s the formidable Bane or Charles Bronson (real name Michael Gordon Peterson), throughout the course of his stellar career, Tom Hardy has developed a knack for characters that are as dark as they are fiercely intense. Last year, for instance, his fiery, yet understated performance as Max Rockatansky was enough to leave even Immortan Joe quaking in his boots, and Tom Hardy fans will soon be turning their gaze toward Taboo, FX’s upcoming miniseries that places the British actor in the grubby boots of swashbuckling adventurer, James Keziah Delaney.

From the character description alone, we know that Delaney is “a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed,” but thanks to today’s deluge of Taboo promos, we get to see a glimpse of Hardy’s scenery-chewing role. Set in 1814, here we see James Keziah Delaney return home to London »

Dune: Fan-Casting Legendary's New Reboot

23 November 2016 10:27 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Legendary Pictures having bought the rights to Frank Herbert's Dune series with plans to develop a new movie (and possibly television series) our resident Dune fanatics on the site, Garrett and Jordan, sit down to discuss which actors they'd love to see cast in the upcoming projects.  Come inside to see their picks and add your own!  

When news about Legendary buying up Dune rights broke earlier this week, reactions around the Cinelinx crew were...subdued.  To be fair, the Dune franchise in terms of adaptations don't have the best track record and it's best representation is a Sci-Fi mini-series that you can barely find on DVD these days.  

As such, Garrett and I found ourselves quietly geeking out to each other, which prompted a slew of ideas on who we think should bring our favorite characters to life in the new adaptation (which hopefully actually happens this »

FX Sets Steven Knight’s Period Drama Taboo For January Premiere

15 November 2016 10:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the key creative mind behind Peaky Blinders, it’s little wonder why FX quickly commissioned Steven Knight’s new, eight-part miniseries Taboo without a moment’s hesitation.

Hatched alongside Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy, the British period drama takes place during the 19th century, where Hardy – Tom, not Chip – will assume the role of swashbuckling adventurer, James Keziah Delaney.

With the pedigree of Knight behind the scenes, not to mention the fact that Kristoffer Nyholm (The Killing, The Enfield Haunting) is on board to helm the first four episodes, there’s a crackle of excitement swirling around Taboo, and budding viewers can now look forward to the series premiering on January 10. Word comes hand-in-hand with the show’s key art, which you can find embedded below.

Black Mirror Producer Annabel Jones Enjoys Making the Audience ‘Feel a Little Bit Nervous’

2 November 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There’s one thing that Black Mirror does and does well, and that’s getting its audience to feel anxious.

“I think I like when people feel a little bit nervous,” Black Mirror executive producer Annabel Jones told People. “Will I sound a bit psycho if I say that’s good?”

“I think it resonates,” she continued. “If people come away thinking, ‘You’ve dramatized something I’ve never seen before, you’ve tapped into something I worry about, you’ve made me sort of think,’ then that’s great.”

Reviewing every 'Black Mirror' episode from the new Netflix season

21 October 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I had some concerns with the new made-for-Netflix season of Black Mirror, which I outlined in my review earlier this week. Netflix released the new season earlier today, which means at least some of you have had a chance to watch all six episodes (the rest of you can bookmark this for later reading), which means I can get more specific — with full spoilers — about each episode, coming up just as soon as I call Mom...  Nosedive The Community episode with MeowMeowBeanz beat Mike Schur and Rashida Jones to this particular punch, but "Nosedive" took the idea seriously, and expanded it beyond one community college campus to show how annoying the whole world might be if we could all upvote and downvote one another. As mentioned earlier in the week, I think this would have done vastly better at 30-40 minutes, with a quick setup showing how much Lacie has »

‘Black Mirror’ Creator on the Move to Netflix and Why He’s ‘Optimistic’ About Social Media

19 October 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When people meet “Black Mirror” creator Charlie Brooker, there’s one thing they always want to know: How messed up is he?

“I think I’m pretty normal,” Brooker says with a laugh. “But that depends on how you define normal.”

It’s a fair question. For “Black Mirror,” he pens scripts about the dark side of technology — the title refers to a shiny screen — with episodic stories that might seem outrageous at first blush, but soon prove all too timely. These have included “Fifteen Million Merits,” in which the only way out of a life of drudgery is to appear on a reality competition, and “White Bear,” in which a strange signal turns a small town into zombies obsessed with stalking and filming a woman.

The reach of “Black Mirror” is particularly impressive given that there have been only seven episodes in total; season one aired on England’s Channel 4 in 2011, followed by a second »
