Outlander's Caitriona Balfe Reveals a Scene We Didn't See (and Why)

3 March 2017 12:12 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Outlander‘s Father Bain probably doesn’t deserve a pass, but he certainly got one in Season 1, star Caitriona Balfe says.

The actress told fans gathered at Emerald City Comicon on Friday that an incident from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander novel was originally included in a Season 1 episode … until things went wrong.

‘National Treasure’ Review: Hulu Drama About Rape Scandal Is More Than Just a Timely Cosby-esque Tale

1 March 2017 5:18 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You spend a lot of time looking at Robbie Coltrane’s face when you watch “National Treasure.”

The camera lingers on it often over the course of the four-hour miniseries, now available on Hulu, letting every conflicted emotion and moment of vulnerability play across his wide friendly features. It’s an intimacy that proves compelling at the beginning of the series, but by the end will leave you shaken. Because the more we learn about him, the less we trust.

Our Staff Picks: TV Shows to Watch the Week of Feb. 27, 2017

27 February 2017 3:25 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome back to Tune In: our weekly newsletter, offering a guide to the best of the week’s TV.

Each week, Variety’s TV team combs through the week’s TV schedule, selecting our picks of what to watch and when/how to watch it. This week, midseason premieres take over the broadcast networks with a slew of new series, plus E!’s second scripted show and Ryan Murphy’s latest FX project debut.

When We Rise,” ABC, Monday, 9 p.m.

Kudos to ABC for bringing this long-overdue story to broadcast television — the four-part, eight-hour series from “Milk” Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black is about the gay rights movement. But, Variety‘s critic Sonia Soraiya has mixed feelings, writing, “The mere existence of ‘When We Rise’ is almost virtue enough. But in terms of tone and execution, the four-part event series from ABC is wildly uneven…” (Read Soraiya’s full review here.)

TV Review: ‘National Treasure’ on Hulu, With Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters

27 February 2017 11:53 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

To clear up any potential confusion at the outset, Hulu’s “National Treasure” has nothing to do with the adventure film franchise of the same name. The streaming service’s new offering is a concentrated jolt of meticulously crafted British drama, which, in four episodes, tells the story of a disgraced celebrity and the scandal that envelops his family.

Over the course of that handful of installments, which arrive on Hulu all at once, “National Treasure” manages to build more suspense and have greater impact than many dramas that chew up far more airtime. Thanks in part to a uniformly phenomenal cast, it makes intelligent and unsentimental observations about the costs of fame and the routine concessions made to celebrity.

Robbie Coltrane plays Paul Finchley, a beloved comedian and TV star accused of rape. Not long after he’s questioned by the police, a single accusation turns into multiple allegations, and »

First poster and trailer for Stephen Fry adaptation The Hippopotamus

11 January 2017 10:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With The Hippopotamus set to receive its North American premiere this weekend at the Palm Springs Film Festival, the first poster and trailer have arrived online for director John Jencks’ upcoming adaptation of Stephen Fry’s 1994 best-selling comedy novel of the same name; take a look below…

A country manor mystery that’s actually a deliciously wicked comedy of manners, The Hippopotamus is a rollicking adaptation of the best-selling novel by Stephen Fry. It centers on a lapsed poet, failed drama critic, redundant husband and hard-working drunk, Ted Wallace (the mellifluously voiced Roger Allam in a rare starring role). Fired from his newspaper job, Ted leaps at the chance to drown his sorrows at his old friend’s country estate, Swafford Hall.

A series of spiritual healings have recently put the household in a tizzy. The purported miracle worker is his hosts’ teenage son, Ted’s godson, David (Tommy Knight »

The first trailer arrives for Stephen Fry’s The Hippopotamus

10 January 2017 9:18 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

We first reported on the production of John Jencks’ big screen adaptation of Stephen Fry’s The Hippopotamus back in 2015, when a single image was released. Since then we’ve heard almost nothing to sate our desire for big screen Fry. Until today that is, as we have finally got a first look at film’s trailer.

Blanche McIntyre and Tom Hodgson adapted Fry’s 1994 novel for Jencks to make his second feature film. A suitably sozzled-looking Roger Allam leads the the cast which include Matthew Modine, Tim McInnerny, Tommy Knight, Geraldine Somerville, Fiona Shaw and Emily Berrington.

We’ve got our look at the first trailer for The Hippopotamus from the Palm Springs Film Festival where the film has its North American premiere on the 14th of January, with another screening on the 15th. There are no details about a festival debut on this side of the pond, »
