Stream the Season Premiere of Showtime's Bloody Good 'Penny Dreadful' Now

21 April 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

John Logan's "Penny Dreadful" is a witchy brew of Victorian hysteria, a mutant gothic inspired by Wilde and Shelley and stuffed with malevolently kooky spooks. Less everything-but-the-kitchen-sink than FX's "American Horror Story," the first season boasted superb visuals and cinematic subtly despite the crazy "anything goes" drama that unfolds. Ahead of its May 3 premiere on Showtime, stream the season 2 premiere, which already looks to be aggressively scary, silly and insane. For fans of extreme female performances, check out Eva Green's gotta-see-it turn as the elegant and chilly Vanessa Ives. Read More: Get Ready or Showtime's Supernatural Chiller "Penny Dreadful" »

Book Review: ‘The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful’

16 April 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Sharon Gosling | Published by Titan Books | Format: Hardback, 176pp

When a show like Penny Dreadful merges a historical setting with a fantastical dark world where anything is possible – to make this believable, but still add the level of the surreal that is required, there has to be a set vision and an artistic style that can connect with what the audience expects and what works on-screen.  In The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful by Sharon Gosling, we see just what it took to create such a unique show and create that connection with the fans.

Impressively The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful isn’t just a book that shows pretty pictures from the show and some words to create the context of what we are seeing.  With comments from the cast and the makers of the show we are given a look into the dark world of Penny Dreadful. »

Daniel Craig Undergoes Minor Knee Surgery Following Spectre Set Accident

6 April 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Of all the things to stop James Bond dead in his tracks, a small knee injury wouldn’t be the first obstacle to come to mind. Nevertheless, following an on-set accident back in February, MGM has confirmed that star Daniel Craig underwent minor knee surgery during a scheduled Spectre break to correct said injury. He is human, after all!

Here’s what a spokesperson had to say about the incident, which won’t have any impact on the film’s production schedule.

“During a scheduled break, Daniel Craig had arthroscopic surgery to repair his knee injury. He will rejoin production on April 22nd at Pinewood.”

Craig first sprained his knee whilst filming an action scene at England’s famous Pinewood Studios, though this didn’t affect Spectre‘s European shoots that followed, as it’s understood the actor didn’t miss any days of filming as production switched to Rome »

Trailer Trashin’: Decoding the Spectre Teaser Trailer

6 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Sorry it’s been so long since the last column, dear readers. I’ve been very busy these last couple weeks, doing things such as finishing up a book I’m writing, celebrating my birthday, and getting to see Heart and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts in concert. But I have returned to Trailer Trashin’, with our first look at the next James Bond movie, Spectre.

Premise: In the aftermath of the bombing of MI6, a cryptic message sets in motion events that will see James Bond (Daniel Craig) come face-to-face with a sinister organization known as Spectre. As Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes), the newly-appointed M, continues fighting political pressures that threaten the future of MI6, Bond is drawn into a confrontation with an enemy who knows him better than he knows himself and holds a dangerous secret that will force Bond to question the value of everything he has fought to protect. »

Spectre Teaser Trailer Pushes Continuation Of Bond Psychology

30 March 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Spectre is likely to be as divisive as Skyfall when it comes to long-time James Bond fans, and, speaking as one, I find it difficult to look forward to the release. I’m not sure the new teaser trailer is helping me.

Frankly, after Sam Mendes announced he wasn’t going to do another Bond film, a lot of people breathed a sigh of relief. If you want to make a film that isn’t a Bond film, go ahead, but don’t make more “let’s make Bond into not-Bond” films.

On the other hand, a lot of people obviously loved Skyfall, and greatly appreciated the new direction that doesn’t rely on gadgets, hot women with goofy names, borderline silly henchmen, and/or anything else people immediately connect with the idea of a Bond film. Or, whatever.

At any rate, the film has a new teaser trailer, and »

There's a lot of things I like in this trailer, and even though it's a simple tease, it will keep you thinking over the possibilities and implications.  It appears as though James Bond has a far deeper connection to Spectre this time around than he has in previous films, and I can't wait to see how it plays out in the film.  The trailer definitely has me jonesing for more...what about you guys?  Tell us your thoughts in the comment below!

Shortly after the first trailer debuted, a number of various sites reported back from the set of the latest James Bond adventure Spectre. They gave a detailed account of the opening action scene, which takes place in Mexico City's Plaza de la Constituci&#243n during Day of the Dead. A number of new production photos were released as well, featuring both Daniel Craig in his return as 007 and Stephanie Sigman in her Day of the Dead disguise.

The scene in question is taking nearly ten days to shoot, and will utilize more than 1500 extras all decked out in Day of the Dead make-up. The scene features James Bond meeting Estrella (Stephanie Sigman) in the crowded streets surrounded by giant Skeleton floats and other larger-than-life decorations.

'Spectre' in Mexico City: What We Know About the James Bond Movie's Opening Scene

27 March 2015 4:50 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Earlier today, as the world anxiously awaited the premiere of the teaser trailer for "Spectre," the latest James Bond adventure (once again starring Daniel Craig as 007), we were on the set of the film in Mexico City, watching them film the movie's dramatic opening sequence and chatting with various members of the crew. This sequence obviously didn't make it into the teaser, which was weirdly action-free, but it did give us a hint at what's to come from this spy thriller.

Mexico is a location that the James Bond franchise has utilized plenty of times before, most recently in the mostly forgotten Craig entry "Quantum of Solace" and the hotel where part of this action sequence takes place, the Gran Hotel de Mexico, had already been used in a 007 movie -- the even-more-forgotten Timothy Dalton joint "The Living Daylights," way back in 1987 (no, I don't remember that one either).

James Bond Returns In First Thrilling Teaser Trailer For Spectre

27 March 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After months of behind-the-scenes featurettes and images, the 24th Bond instalment has delivered a shot of the hard stuff. The first teaser trailer for the secret agent’s next batch of adventures has finally arrived online. And boy, is it a zinger.

Featuring Daniel Craig as the titular secret agent, Spectre picks up sometime after the events of Skyfall and follows Bond as he embarks on another globe-trotting mission to track down a mysterious organization. As expected, he comes up against a veritable cast of surly baddies keen to halt his quest, and an array of dazzling beauties to ease the pain of all those nasty scrapes.

Returning director Sam Mendes hits his stride in this brief but awe-inspiring preview for the flick. Exotic locales, bursts of action, and lingering looks at the new roster of acting talent all suggest we’re in for another wild ride later this year. »

The world received its first glimpse of “Spectre” on Friday with the release of a teaser trailer for the 24th James Bond film on 007.com.

The teaser went live at 23:45 GMT, or at the very end of the work week in the United Kingdom. The worldwide release is set for Nov. 6.

The trailer opens with Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny giving Daniel Craig’s James Bond personal effects from Skyfall, his boyhood home — which burned to the ground at the end of the movie of the same name.

“You’ve got a secret — something you can’t tell anyone because you don’t trust anyone,” she adds.

As usual with Bond films, most of the plot details of “Spectre” have been kept under wraps. The official description: “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces »
