Game of Thrones: Stannis Lives!

27 August 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Reports of Stannis Baratheon’s death have been greatly exaggerated… in the Game of Thrones source material, at least.

A fan recently asked author George R.R. Martin, via a comment left on Martin’s LiveJournal, whether Robert’s throne-hungry brother was still alive. The question is relevant given the end of the HBO series’ fifth season, which led viewers to believe — but did not actually show — that Stannis had been killed by a vengeful Brienne of Tarth. (One of the series’ directors later confirmed that Stephen Dillane’s character was, indeed, dead.)

“In my books?” Martin replied Wednesday. “Alive, beyond a doubt. »

15 Dead Game Of Thrones Characters (That Are Still Alive In The Books)

26 August 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Game of Thrones, the HBO fantasy drama based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, will begin its sixth season on the air next year, adding the likes of Ian McShane and Max von Sydow to its ensemble cast, which was thinned somewhat by the events of the recently-concluded season five.

There are few storylines from the books that have yet to be adapted to screen, which will likely result in the upcoming sixth season being a largely original creation, even if Martin is striving to finish writing The Winds Of Winter, the series’ sixth book, ahead of its premiere.

The alteration of storylines to this point has already resulted in the survival of characters that perished long ago on the page, or, much more frequently, the premature demise of individuals that are still amongst the living as of the end of A Dance With Dragons. »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

Deadwood is the best drama HBO has ever made – it must be revived

14 August 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The network made a catastrophic error in cancelling the profane period drama, but can finally correct it by greenlighting a rumoured follow-up film

One can’t think of too many TV series that were made into successful films – and no, Sex and the City most assuredly does not count – so the omens for a particular saga that was cancelled the best part of a decade ago, after just three seasons, are not encouraging.

HBO Looking Into A Deadwood Movie

13 August 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Don’t get too excited just yet, folks, but it’s being reported that HBO is in very early talks to potentially put together a Deadwood movie, which, of course, would be based on David Milch’s critically acclaimed show that was brought to an end in 2006.

The commotion all began when actor Garret Dillahunt Tweeted the following earlier this week:

“So uh…I’m hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie.”

While unconfirmed at first, HBO has now gone on the record to state that yes, they are in very early talks with Milch but right now, it’s nothing more than a “preliminary conversation.” What this means isn’t exactly certain, but it’s nice to hear that the wheels are beginning to turn and that the idea is being floated around.

It makes sense that this would pop up now, too, given that the show’s star, »

HBO in Preliminary Talks for 'Deadwood' Movie

13 August 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Deadwood, the acclaimed HBO western series that was cancelled in 2006, may be returning — as a movie.

Actor Garret Dillahunt, who played two characters on the show, including geologist Francis Wolcott, during its run from 2004 to 2006, posted two tweets Wednesday hinting at the prospect. In response, a spokesman for HBO confirmed to Variety that "very preliminary discussions" have been made to resurrect the series with a movie.

Dillahunt's initial tweet read:

Is A Deadwood Movie Finally Happening?

13 August 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

David Milch's extraordinarily sweary HBO Western series Deadwood was abruptly cancelled after three seasons in 2006, meaning it never got to conclude its story. In the aftermath, there was some talk of a couple of TV-movies to wrap up the threads of the tale left to tell. They never materialised, but now, suddenly, there's word of more Deadwood once again. HBO have confirmed that "very preliminary discussions" are taking place.Milch’s superb show took the real history and many genuine characters from the South Dakota territories of the 1870s, and crafted a narrative that was riveting, brutal, often hilarious and always astonishingly written. In a nutshell, it revolved around new arrival to the town Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant), who started out a hardware store owner and ended up the sheriff; Al Swearingen (Ian McShane), the shifty bar owner who unofficially ran the town; and Alma Garrett (Molly Parker), a »

HBO Is Considering A 'Deadwood' Movie

13 August 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last year, we ran the feature 6 TV Shows We'd Like To See Get The Big-Screen Treatment and "Deadwood" cracked the list. Little did we know that HBO would break our hearts and go forward with an "Entourage" movie instead, but it seems the network hasn't forgotten about the beloved, short-lived show. Following a couple of too-good-to-be-true tweets from Garrett Dillahunt aka Francis Wolcott, EW reports that "preliminary talks" are happening about turning the David Milch show into a full blown movie. Damn. Peppered with salty language, delivered by an excellent cast including Timothy Olyphant, Ian McShane, Molly Parker, John Hawkes, and more, the show won Emmys and earned a lot of love, but perhaps not quite the ratings to sustain it.

'Deadwood' Movie Might Actually Get Made After All

13 August 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Is "Deadwood" coming back from the dead?

The HBO series ran for three seasons and was canceled in 2006. At the time, there was talk of completing the drama with two movies, but nothing came of the matter (on a personal note: still mad about that).

Now, there are new rumblings that a movie might get made. Actor Garret Dillahunt (who played Jack McCall, then later Francis Wolcott) lit the first match on Twitter:

So uh....I'm hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie. #Everybodypray

- Garret Dillahunt (@garretdillahunt) August 13, 2015 "What?! Please be true!" responded Twitter and the rest of the Internet.

To that, an HBO spokesperson only said, "In reference to Garret Dillahunt's tweet regarding the rumored 'Deadwood movie,' there have only been very preliminary conversations."

Ok, so, a possible movie is in the very early stages, but we can't help but be excited. And perhaps the »

HBO Comments On "Deadwood" Film Claims

13 August 2015 2:11 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Social media comments earlier today led to some excitement regarding the potential return of one of HBO's most iconic series - the western drama "Deadwood".

Actor Garret Dillahunt, who played Jack McCall in the show's first season and Francis Wolcott in the second, sent out some tweets suggesting the long in the works but unlikely film continuation of the series had suddenly seen some movement after years of essentially nothing.

So uh....I'm hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie. #Everybodypray

Garret Dillahunt (@garretdillahunt) August 13, 2015

Come on made @entouragemovie. Give the #Deadwood fans some closure. #Youcandoit.

Garret Dillahunt (@garretdillahunt) August 13, 2015

That wasn't all though. TV Line added that HBO is in negotiations with David Milch for a movie that will wrap up the story line. The report didn't say if the film would be a telemovie or a full on theatrical release.

HBO has now responded to Dillahunt's tweets, »

‘Deadwood’ Could Return as a Movie, HBO Says

HBO’s “Deadwood” was beloved but short-lived, spanning only three seasons from 2004 to 2006. However, the Western drama may be returning as a movie, according to the network responding to a tweet by actor Garret Dillahunt. “In reference to Garret Dillahunt’s tweet regarding the rumored Deadwood movie, there have only been very preliminary conversations,” an HBO spokesperson told TheWrap Wednesday.

HBO Confirms Early Talks of ‘Deadwood’ Movie

12 August 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Is “Deadwood” about to return from the dead?

A spokesman for HBO confirmed to Variety that “very preliminary discussions” have been made to resurrect the Western series with a movie, though it’s unclear how serious the premium channel is about the pic.

Actor Garret Dillahunt, who played Francis Wilcott on the series that ran from 2004-06, ignited the chatter Wednesday when he tweeted: “So uh….I’m hearing credible rumors about a #Deadwood movie.”

“Come on HBO,” he wrote. “You made the ‘Entourage’ movie. Give the #Deadwood fans some closure.”

Despite the overture, fans of the Emmy-winning drama know not to hop in the saddle just yet.

HBO previously announced two “Deadwood” movies when it officially cancelled the show in 2008, but nothing ever came of them. Creator David Milch was also said to be offered a shorter fourth season of the series but quickly rejected the idea.

'Deadwood' Movie to Finally Wrap-Up HBO Series?

12 August 2015 9:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nine years ago this month, HBO's hit series Deadwood aired its last episode after just three seasons on the air. Ever since then, fans have been clamoring for the show to return in some form, with series star Kim Dickens saying last year that Deadwood creator David Milch still wants to give the beloved Western series a proper ending. Earlier today, star Garret Dillahunt told his Twitter followers that he's heard rumors of a Deadwood movie. Here's what the actor had to say on his Twitter page.

Deadwood Wrap-Up Movie: It's Finally (Maybe) Happening

12 August 2015 6:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

For f–k’s sake, it better happen this time!

Deadwood, the Western drama that HBO cancelled in 2006, might soon get a satisfying conclusion: Sources confirm to TVLine that talks between the network and series creator David Milch have indeed resumed.

The project — which likely will take the form of a movie — had been rumored for some time; in 2014, star Kim Dickens told Michael Ausiello that a continuation was a “possibility.” (See video below.)

'Game of Thrones' Will Bring Back Walder Frey, But When?

8 August 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones is set to introduce almost 30 new characters over the course of Season 6 when it debuts this spring. That certainly sounds like a lot of new faces. But that doesn't mean we won't see some returning favorites. Isaac Hempstead-Wright has already confirmed that his Bran Stark, who sat out Game of Thrones Season 5, will be returning. Now, another actor has confirmed his own imminent return. Thing is, he doesn't want to tell us if it's in the upcoming Game of Thrones Season 6.

If asked which House of Westeros is most hated, a majority of the fans will automatically say House Frey. Sure, some fans have turned a blind eye towards Houses Lannister, Greyjoy, or Tyrell. But it's the rare book reader or show watcher who will admit to loving the dirty deeds thrust fourth by Frey. And most generally hate head of House Frey and Lord of the Crossing, »

11 incredible TV shows that no-one is talking about: UnREAL, Rectify, more

7 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

1. Ray Donovan - David Moynihan, Editor

Airs on Sky Atlantic, Wednesdays at 9pm

We're now into the third run of the Liev Schreiber-fronted drama, and the season hasn't dipped one iota since the shocking, deadly twists of its predecessors.

Donovan is a wolfish 'problem fixer' for big-money Hollywood, but beneath the brutish exterior - all guns and grunts - it's his constant struggles with his own family's failings that form the tender heart of the show. Viewers are voyeurs in the ugly reality that lies behind the glitzy mask of La, where money is the driving force for corrupt officials, hollow celebrities and violent gangsters.

Schreiber's muscular and intoxicating performance - along with magnificent scene stealing by Jon Voigt as the larger-than-life rogue grandfather Micky - powers the gripping storylines.
