Earlier this month, we reported that Season 3 of Hannibal will debut on NBC June 4. NBC revealed back in January that they were pushing the show to debut in the summer, instead of the spring like the first seasons, but it seems the extended wait will be well worth it. Series creator Bryan Fuller took to his Twitter account earlier this week to share a number of intriguing details about this upcoming season, along with the directors for four of the 13 episodes.
Bryan Fuller made all of these revelations after asking the fans on his Twitter page to vote for his earlier series Pushing Daisies in an online poll of which beloved but short-lived shows should come back. After Pushing Daisies beat out Firefly in the final round, Bryan Fuller started releasing Hannibal tidbits, first revealing that the Season 3 premiere, "Antipasto", "will take place over four different periods of time." Unfortunately, »
Neil Marshall and Vincenzo Natali: horror hounds know the former for his directing of The Descent, Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, and more, while the latter brought Splice, Haunter, Cube, and the "U is for Utopia" segment of ABCs of Death 2 to life on the big screen. These two creative horror genre minds bring their skills to the always dangerous dinner table of NBC's Hannibal, as showrunner Bryan Fuller has revealed Marshall and Natali directed select episodes of the third season. Also unveiled are the titles of four season three episodes, one of which should sound very familiar to fans of Thomas Harris' 1981 novel and the 2002 (second) film adaptation of the same name.
On his Twitter page, Fuller announced that Vincenzo Natali directed the first three episodes of Hannibal Season 3, respectively titled "Antipasto", "Primavera", and "Secondo." Fuller then revealed that Neil Marshall helmed "The Great Red Dragon", the eighth episode of season three. »

Legions of dedicated Hannibal fans have suffered an agonizing wait since the show’s season 2 finale. A bloody, savage closer, it hinted at a brand new era for the series which is set to debut its third season in a little over two months.
From the small spatter of details revealed via casting announcements and teaser posters, it’s been fun assembling a rough image of what to expect from season 3. There’s been a time-hop tease, a nudge toward territory previously broached in the movie adaptations, and the biggest drop of all from series creator Bryan Fuller, who jokingly referenced the “second biggest” character in the entire Hanni-verse making an appearance.
Fuller’s propensity for dishing the dirt on his creation continued last night over on Twitter. In a series of hint-heavy Tweets, he revealed a wealth of new info on the show’s forthcoming season 3.
On the basis of the first teaser poster, »

We're still a few months out from the June 4th premiere of the third season of NBC's "Hannibal". Series creator Bryan Fuller is aware that the waiting is hard for fans of the show, and so has dropped a few nuggets of information regarding the upcoming season through his Twitter account.
Amongst the garnered facts are that the season premiere takes place over four different periods of time. Also "Cube" and "Splice" director Vincenzo Natali will helm the first three episodes which all have Italian cuisine titles - Antipasto, Primavera, Secondo.
But the most exciting news? Neil Marshall is set to helm the eighth episode of the season which will be entitled "The Grand Red Dragon". "The Descent" director has become one of the most in demand TV director working these days and has helmed two episodes each of "Game of Thrones," "Black Sails" and "Constantine".

Film and TV awards to be split into two events.
The Irish Film & Television Academy (Ifta) has announced that the annual Ifta Awards Ceremony has been split into two separate distinct smaller award ceremonies: a Film & Drama Awards and a Television Awards.
Each event will honour top Irish creative talent.
Previously, the ceremony packed in more than 40 awards into one evening.The decision to split the prizes follows a consultation with industry and peer academies across Europe over the past 10 months.
The result is that the first Ifta Film & Drama Awards will take place on May 24 while the Ifta Television Awards will be held on Oct 17. Both events will be held in Dublin.
Following criticism of technical difficulties at last year’s ceremony, it has been announced the May event will not be screened live.
The IFTAs came under threat when, late last year, Irish public broadcaster RTÉ announced it would not be broadcasting the event again. Following »

Today we've got slim, but quality pickings. Right out of the gate, one of my favourite humble budget horror outings, Dog Soldiers gets a loving re-issue from Scream Factory!

Emmy nominated director Neil Marshall (Game Of Thrones) and his longtime agent Marc Helwig have formed a TV/film production company, Applebox Entertainment, which has signed a two-year overall deal with Legendary TV. The English-born duo will develop scripted dramas with focus on elevated genre fare and projects with worldwide appeal. Helwig had been Marshall’s agent for 16 years, first in London, then at ICM and most recently at Jeff Berg's Resolution. When that company… »

1.13 Waiting For The Man
The Constantine team must have been optimistic about getting its back nine episodes picked up, because Waiting For The Man has few of the trappings of a finale. It does bring two major players, Papa Midnite and Jim Corrigan, back on the scene, and it moves the show’s overarching plot forward a bit more than your average episode. But at its core this is another monster-of-the-week offering, without the high drama that gives a finale its… well, finality. This flaw has more to do with the business of making a TV show than it does with the artistic side of things. But it’s a shame, because this could be Constantine’s last episode.

Cameos, mistakes and in-jokes. We’ve trawled the Game Of Thrones season 4 DVD commentaries for what went on behind the scenes…
Warning: contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season 4.
If you’re a busy Game Of Thrones fan who can’t find the spare ten hours required to re-watch season four with the accompanying disc commentaries, then we have your back. Gleaned from said audio tracks provided by the cast, crew and creators George R.R. Martin, Dan Weiss and David Benioff, is the below list of nerdy facts and anecdotes about the making of season four.
Granted, skip the commentaries and you won’t experience first-hand Peter Dinklage’s rendition of Let It Go from Frozen, a stream of filthy innuendo from Lena Headey, or the general sense of awe, adoration and good-natured mockery everyone who works on the show has for everyone else (“If only you could act, Peter »

“I’ve already seen this movie,” was the quote from my roommate and fellow Game of Thrones superfan Theo as we stood outside the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin at the front of a constantly growing line in our post-brunch haze on Sunday. About an hour later we’d be inside the museum’s IMAX theater watching two episodes of Game of Thrones that we’d already seen (several times) in the ten months since they premiered. The only new thing we’d ultimately witness would be a two minute trailer for the upcoming season five that had been online for about 24 hours at that point. There was little to no practical reason for us to be standing in the sun, a little buzzed from some A.M. libations, waiting for an hour to watch a television rerun. But we’re fans of the show and that’s what fans do. We »

While American Sniper topped the box office charts for a third straight week in a row, this weekend also marked the historic IMAX screenings of two Game of Thrones episodes. Deadline reports that the Warner Bros./IMAX presentation took in a healthy $1.5 million from just 205 screens, bringing in a per-screen average of $7,323. While these figures are not record-breaking numbers by any means, it does show that die-hard fans are willing to pay to see a show like Game of Thrones in large-format IMAX theaters. Here's what Warner Bros. distribution executive vice president Jeff Goldstein had to say in a statement.
"This is the first time that HBO has taken one of their series episodes and released it in IMAX. We see this as a future, and not just with HBO. There is a business here and an interest from a rabid fan base."
Game of Thrones will make history starting today, as it becomes the first TV series ever to be presented on the big screen in the immersive IMAX format, for one week of screenings from January 29 through February 5. Along with the final two episodes of Season 4, "The Watchers on the Wall" and "The Children", fans will also get to see the first trailer for Season 5 on the big screen in over 200 theaters nationwide in cities such as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, San Antonio, Seattle, Toronto and Washington, D.C. In case you don't want to head to the theaters this weekend, we have the trailer right here!
We've already seen a number of tiny teasers released through the viral site ThreeEyedRaven.com, but now we have the first true footage that all Thrones fans have been waiting for ever since the Season 4 finale aired last year. »
Before Season 5 of HBO's Game of Thrones debuts this spring, fans will get the unique opportunity to watch the final two Season 4 episodes on the big screen in IMAX theaters across the country, in a one-week run from January 29 to February 5. Game of Thrones will be the first TV series ever to be screened in the IMAX format, and fans who attend these screenings will also get the first look at the Season 5 trailer. Before this weeklong event gets under way tomorrow, IMAX has released a new featurette where series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff offer high praise for the IMAX format, revealing how it changes the viewing experience in such an immersive environment.
We also hear from composer Ramin Djawadi, who talks about his experience of watching these two Season 4 episodes, "The Watchers on the Wall" and "The Children", and how even viewers who have watched these episodes over and over again, »

1.10 Quid Pro Quo
There’s a new hero in town, and his name is Chas Chandler. The mild-mannered cab driver has thus far been somewhat lacking in personality, but Quid Pro Quo rectifies that by giving Chas both a backstory and a chance to take charge.
I was mistaken last week when I said this wasn’t a Hellblazer story. It’s loosely based on the straight-to-graphic-novel book All His Engines (which I have not read, unfortunately). In the Constantine version of the story, dozens of people in Brooklyn are falling into mysterious comas, and one of the victims is Chas’ daughter Geraldine. Chas enlists Constantine’s help, against the wishes of his ex-wife Renee (who is a lot hotter and less irritating here than in the comics; on the flip side, »
Yesterday, we reported that HBO has delayed their special IMAX screenings for the hit series Game of Thrones by one week, from January 23 to January 29, due to "high levels of consumer demand." With just one day left until tickets go on sale, IMAX has released two limited edition posters that will be given away to the fans who attend these screenings. This will be the first-ever presentation of a television program in IMAX theatres, featuring two episodes from Season 4 of Game of Thrones followed by the worldwide debut of the series' Season 5 sneak-peek preview created exclusively for IMAX. Be warned, though, if you aren't caught up with Season 4, there will be some spoilers revealed in the posters, so check the out at your own risk.
The first 300 IMAX ticket holders for the Thursday night opening show time (January 29 at 10pm) at participating IMAX theatres will receive a commemorative Game of Thrones »
