Exclusive: Eva Green on Vanessa as the Devil's bride in new 'Penny Dreadful' sneak

20 March 2015 3:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is always a lot of discussion about whether this actor or actress got snubbed for a Golden Globe, SAG Awards or Oscar nomination, but you know who got royally shafted this past season?  Ms. Eva Green. Green, who many still probably know best for her role as the love of James Bond's life in "Casino Royale," delivered an absolutely jaw-dropping performance during "Penny Dreadful's" first season.  As I've written before, Green literally blew all of her co-stars off the screen (except for the underrated rock that is Timothy Dalton).  And, along with show creator John Logan, fashioned one of television's more intriguing new characters in Vanessa Ives, a 19th century woman caught in the crosshairs of none other the Devil.  The idea she didn't even land a Globe nomination was criminal (SAG made slightly more sense) and we're hoping Emmy voters are smart enough to recognize her incredible work so far. »

"That little boy's dreams come true. It's an amazing, beautiful thing. But his nightmares, they're... deadly." A newly adopted boy is afraid to close his eyes in Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake.

Also featured in our latest video round-up are teasers for the second season of Penny Dreadful, the fifth season of Game of Thrones, and the debut season of Scream Queens.

Before I Wake: From Relativity, Before I Wake hits theaters on May 8th:

"In this intense and heart pounding supernatural thriller, Jessie (Kate Bosworth) and Mark (Thomas Jane) decide to take in a sweet and loving 8-year-old boy, Cody. Unbeknownst to them, Cody is terrified of falling asleep. »

Was The New James Bond Movie Rewritten At The Request Of The Mexican Government?

15 March 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

About nine months ago we reported that the latest James Bond film, Spectre ordered a rewrite, delaying production. Within the report, the only information that was given was that writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were asked to amp up the screenplay turned in by Oscar-winning John Logan by sprinkling in more gags and witty repartee. Well, it turns out that the official story left out some interesting tidbits about that rewrite. And now, the truth comes out. Apparently, Spectre received a whopping $20 million from the Mexican government in exchange for some script changes. The budget for the upcoming Bond film had been spiraling out of control, so when Sony and MGM were given the opportunity to receive some much needed money they took it. According to TaxAnalysts.com, an e-mail leak has shown that the producers of the film pushed for significant creative changes in order to receive $20 million »

Miss Bala’s Stephanie Sigman Is Spectre’s Third Bond Girl

10 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daniel Craig’s 007 is one lucky guy. In this November’s Spectre, the British spy will be trying out his terrible yet seductive one-liners on the likes of Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux, but today brings news that a third Bond girl has entered the picture: Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman.

The star, who previously toplined Mexico’s 2011 Oscars foreign language submission, Miss Bala, and Norwegian thriller Pioneer, was announced to be playing the role of Estrella via the James Bond 007 Facebook page.

Though Sigman, who’ll appear in Netflix’s upcoming Narcos and also had a role of FX’s departed The Bridge, is on the rise, she’s still less known than Bellucci or Seydoux, leading to speculation that her character is a dead woman walking. One Facebook commenter was quick to question whether she’ll be a “sacrificial lamb,” in the spirit of Shirley Easton’s Jill Masterston »

Movistar Series Galvanizes U.S. TV Buys in Spain

10 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madrid –Giant Spanish telco Telefonica’s pay TV operator Movistar TV is making one of Spain’s highest-profile drives into U.S. TV content in the last 20 years, creaming dozens of high-quality TV series for its nre Svod service Movistar Series.

Latest announced deals take in CBS, HBO, Sony Pictures TV and ABC. More will follow. Launching Dec. 10, Ms currently offers 45 series. It aims to raise that number to 70 at least.

Telefonica launched a pay TV operator, Iptv service Imagenio, in Madrid and Barcelona in 2004. But it traditionally played second fiddle to the dominant pricey premium pay TV service Canal Plus Spain.

That has now changed. From 2013, Telefonica begun to load up on premium contents: the Roland Garros tennis tourney, Formula One, the Road Racing World Championship and then bought Canal Plus Spain outright in a $1.0 billion May 2014 deal which still has to be cleared by Spain’s anti-trust authorities. »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Early Look at 43 Movies Vying for Best Picture

9 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As always, March is too early to get any kind of firm grasp on what will or won't be an Oscar contender come the end of the year, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to speculate. Last year, only two of the nine films I predicted out of the gates actually ended up receiving Best Picture nominations at the 2015 Oscars -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which goes to show just how much we know in advance. In fact, looking at the films I had on the outside looking in, only Best Picture winner Birdman was listed. But hey, at least I had three of the top contenders in the early year conversation, that's something... rightc When it comes to this year, I feel even less certain than I did last year. I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot since only two of the 43 films on »
