At the end of last episode, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) vowed to make her escape from Castle Leoch. So catching sight of her already running through the woods at the start of this one is a bit of a surprise. Turns out, however, she's just playing with the castle kids - while reconnoitering the terrain for any possible escape routes. And she's already found two. Her bodyguards ask her to return to the castle so that they can enjoy the night's festivities. While they walk back, Claire attempts to figure out a distraction so that she can escape them later in the evening. »

As the cast of Outlander was shooting the last block of the show's first season in Scotland, they got the good news: Starz had picked up the show for a second season. To celebrate, actor Graham McTavish broke out the whisky "for a kind of tasting," as lead actress Caitriona Balfe puts it during a call the following day, by way of explaining that she might be a little out of sorts. "Sorry, the whisky is stopping me from finding words!" she laughed. "The whisky's kicking in!" It has been a whirlwind year for Balfe, who was cast in the part of the time-traveling protagonist Claire Randall and immediately whisked off to the Scottish Highlands to start filming the series, with nary a break since. Balfe chatted with Vulture about good omens, oral sex, time-period feminism, and her Twilight-related worry. How much did you know about this series before you »

Untitled Robert the Bruce Project
"Starred Up" director David Mackenzie is reportedly keen on reuniting with that film's star Jack O'Connell for an upcoming and very gritty film about medieval Scottish king Robert the Bruce which he's working on.
Mackenzie says: "I’m trying to get Jack involved in that. And I can’t say that’s official, but Jack and I have been in discussion on that. But not as the Robert the Bruce character, as a secondary character, but a very, very sort of close second." [Source: Collider]

Starz was very happy with the early reception of their new Outlander TV show so they gave it an early season two renewal. The cable channel has often given quick renewals but the series are then often cancelled after two seasons. Will Starz regret giving Outlander a second year order so soon? Would it have been cancelled if they had waited?

And from dodging Geillis Duncan's (Lotte Verbeek) nosey questions, fending off Dougal MacKenzie's (Graham McTavish) insults, and getting jealous over Jamie McTavish's (Sam Heughan) intimate moment with a young lady, Claire had her hands full as she experienced life in 1743.

"The last time I was here, Frank and I simply took a car," remarks Claire (Catriona Balfe) as she looks up at the gloomy Castle Leoch on Saturday's episode of Outlander. In 1945, the trip from Inverness was a matter of hours. But in 1743, it takes days. Claire has no idea where she is, nor how to get back to the standing stones that transported her in time. Walking through the halls of dark castle, she gets flashes of her visit with Frank. As Claire tends to Jamie's wounds, she wonders what her husband must think of her. Is she injured? »

TV show description:
Quick-witted and beautiful Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) is a married combat nurse from 1945 who finds herself mysteriously thrown back in time to 1743 Scotland. Claire and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, are forced to marry to save her life. A passionate affair is ignited »
Starz's new drama series "Outlander" tells the story of a World War II combat nurse from England who finds herself flung back in time to the Scottish highlands in the 1740s, struggling to adjust to the customs of this strange place and period, trying to figure out a way to return home, and torn between her love for her academic husband in the 20th century and her growing feelings for the rugged, kilted Scotsman who becomes her friend and chief protector. These are all elements and overlapping genres that, on paper, I usually have little use for. But "Outlander," adapted by "Battlestar Galactica" showrunner Ronald D. Moore from the popular novels by Diana Gabaldon, is a classic example of the old Roger Ebert axiom that what a story is about is ultimately less important than how it's about it. That outline above suggests a formulaic mash-up of fantasy and romance novels, »

As has been the case with all of Peter Jackson's films (especially where Middle-Earth is concerned), the previous The Hobbit film, The Desolation of Smaug is getting an extended edition. Warner Bros. have now announced the details on the upcoming blu-ray, which includes 25 minutes of extra footage, and you'll be able to get it in your hands just in time for the final film in the trilogy. Come inside to check out all the details!
I loved the Extended Edition versions of all the Lord of the Rings films. They were great and added in some content that genuinely fleshed out characters and storylines...Yet, I've had very little interest in seeing more of The Hobbit films. For the most part, this is due to the fact that I feel The Hobbit films have been bloated from the get-go. There are plenty of scenes in both of these movies »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition will be released on Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray November 4, just in time for the holiday shopping season. These sets will include over 25 minutes of footage that wasn't included in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug's theatrical presentation, along with brand new special features.
If you can't wait three long months to check out this new footage, then you're in luck, because we have a never-before-seen clip where Bilbo (Martin Freeman) is sent to cross above the dangerously enchanted waters of Mirkwood Forest, by using the unstable vines above the stream. Take a look at this scene, then check out the artwork for these Extended Edition sets and read the official press release for more details.
A Bonny Bore — Brian Lowry
For those who turned “Outlander” into an international bestseller, seeing the characters brought to life, with Scotland as the bonny backdrop, will doubtless be something of a kick. For everyone else, the resulting series is a bit of a snooze — handsome, yes, but about as dramatically compelling as the cover of a Harlequin Romance, and too flaccid to make hearts go pitter-pat. More practically, Starz courts a different demographic with this show, which with a few trims could easily have wound up on Lifetime. And based on its not-ready-for-premium attributes, that’s probably the time and place where “Outlander” most belongs.
“People disappear all the time,” says Claire (Caitriona Balfe), a British army nurse introduced at the end of World War II delivering a novel-esque voiceover that runs throughout. Weary of bloodshed, she seeks to reconnect with her husband, Frank (Tobias Menzies), as the two »
