Watch: Lucifer Doesn't Fall Alone In New Trailer For 'Penny Dreadful' Season 2

13 January 2015 6:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lost between the duelling buzz storms of “True Detective and ”Fargo“ last year, Showtime’s ”Penny Dreadful“ seems destined to be underrated by TV critics who can be just as dismissive of the horror genre as their big-screen counterparts. Shows about monster hunters in Victorian London aren’t the type to garner industry awards and be spoken about in hushed reverential tones by tastemakers. Still, the show – and fellow squirm-fest ”Hannibal" – makes the case that horror can be just as fertile a creative ground as the standard crime drama, and the new trailer is here to prove it. Set to a chilly version of the old English folk song “The Unquiet Grave,” the moody trailer for the horror series plants its flag more on the arty side than the schlocky side, though creepy imagery still rules the day. Created by “Skyfall” writer John Logan – with his Bond partner Sam Mendes »

12 January 2015 4:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” will be back — and bloodier than ever — on April 26.

The season-two trailer was first revealed Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour  in Pasadena, where series creator John Logan and cast members Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Helen McCrory and Harry Treadaway offered hints about what’s to come.

“Last season, our heroes were hunters,” Logan said. “This season, they’re hunted.”

The new episodes will feature more of werewolf Ethan (Hartnett), whose self-discovery is a major part of the upcoming storyline. “Ethan, this season, learns exactly what he is,” said Logan. Hartnett added that he knew he’d be playing a werewolf ever since he signed onto the series.

As for the literal bloodbath in the trailer (watch above), McCrory said it took months for the crew to perfect the fake blood in which she bathes.

"Penny Dreadful" Season 2 Full Trailer

12 January 2015 3:56 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After some vague teasers, Showtime used its TCA Winter tour presentation to reveal the full-length trailer for the second season of "Penny Dreadful," a trailer featuring a hell of a money shot, what appears to be this universe's version of the Phantom of the Opera, and a beautiful and carefully building sinister tone throughout.

During the presentation, Showtime President David Nevins said he would like to keep the show going "as long as possible". A renewal order for the third season hasn't begun, but creator John Logan has already reportedly begun breaking a story for it. The new season premieres on April 26th.

Showtime also announced that they have renewed their long-running drama series "Shameless" for a sixth season, and have picked up "Happyish" to series. That show originally starred Philip Seymour Hoffman who shot the pilot, since then a new pilot was shot with Steve Coogan taking over the part. »

8 January 2015 4:51 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, Showtime's new drama Penny Dreadful became a surprise breakout hit.  The gothic, Victorian tale wove together a number of familiar characters -- Doctor Frankenstein, his Creature, Dorian Gray -- along with several new faces, all wrapped up in an engrossing vampire-slaying series.  But even the old felt new again, as Penny Dreadful exposed some incredible beauty in the story of the Creature (Rory Kinnear) in particular.  Hit the jump for more on what to expect from the series' second season, which is currently in production, as well as an exclusive Penny Dreadful Season 2 clip from behind the scenes featuring Reeve Carney. Penny Dreadful is currently filming in Dublin, Ireland, and is set for a spring 2015 debut.  According to series creator and executive producer John Logan, "This season Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) face new challenges, and old enemies, and turn to each other for solace.

'Spectre' Set Photo Teases Snowy Landscape for 'Bond 24'

5 January 2015 12:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Like most productions, the upcoming 007 adventure Spectre took a break over the holidays, but now shooting has resumed today, with a new photo teasing a snowy set. Naturally, no story details were revealed, and it isn't known exactly where Spectre is currently filming at this point. Production began in early December, with the sequel based at Pinewood Studios in London, and filming also set to take place in Mexico City, Rome, Morocco and Austrian locations such as Solden, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee. While it hasn't been confirmed, it seems possible that this photo was taken from the Lake Altaussee location.

Daniel Craig returns as 007, alongside Skyfall stars Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Rory Kinnear (Tanner). The story centers on a cryptic message from Bond's past that sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, »
