Outlander: Season One Ratings

6 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

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?

The Outlander series revolves around Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945. She finds herself mysteriously thrown back in time, to 1743 Scotland, and forced to marry another man to save her life. A passionate affair is ignited. The rest of the cast includes Sam Heughan, Tobias Menzies, Graham McTavish, Gary Lewis, Annette Badland, Stephen Walters, Laura Donnelly, Lotte Verbeek, James Fleet, Duncan Lacroix, Roderick Gilkison, Simon Callow, Grant O'Rourke, Bill Paterson, and Simon Meacock.

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ Blu-ray Review

20 April 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ken Stott, Graham McTavish, William Kircher, James Nesbitt, Stephen Hunter, Dean O’Gorman, Aidan Turner, John Callen, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sylvester McCoy, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Manu Bennett | Written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro | Directed by Peter Jackson

When The Hobbit was announced I’m sure nobody would have thought it would be three movies long, J. R. R.Tolkien fit the whole story into one book, and even that wasn’t very long.  Here we are though with the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which in theory should be the last Lord of the Rings movie Peter Jackson makes.  Unless he can pull more tales of Middle-earth out of the appendices of course (and I’m sure some of us hope he could).

While Adonis never knew his grandfather, he feels the fire of the boxer coursing through his veins and heads to Philadelphia to seek out Rocky Balboa (Stallone).Hoping that Rocky will train him, Adonis battles through the older fighter’s insistence that he’s out of the game, and Rocky sees the strength and determination of his fierce rival and, later, closet friend in the young man. Reluctantly agreeing to help him out, »

‘Outlander’ Q&A: Claire’s in Trouble Again – The Stars Preview What’s Next

11 April 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Outlander” Season 1, Episode 10, “By the Pricking of My Thumbs.”

There’s never a dull moment on Starz’s “Outlander” — no sooner had Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) recovered from their first fight (and Claire’s subsequent spanking) in last week’s episode than our heroine was confronting a jealous Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) over the ill wish she left under Claire and Jamie’s bed, a showdown that only made the entitled young Scotswoman more resentful of her English rival this week.

By the end of Episode 10, Laoghaire had concocted an elaborate and dastardly scheme that resulted in both Claire and her friend Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) being arrested for witchcraft and carted off to Thieves’ Hole to await trial. Even worse — Claire’s husband Jamie was sent away to accompany his uncle Dougal (Graham McTavish) back to his own »

Creator Ronald Moore Is ‘Very Curious to See How People React’ to ‘Outlander’ Return

2 April 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From “Harry Potter” to “Fifty Shades of Grey,” there’s few things more valuable to the entertainment industry than a fiercely beloved book series. There’s also few things more daunting for a producer than the prospect of letting down the protective fans of a fiercely beloved book series, and “Outlander” fans have been obsessing about Claire Randall for more than two decades now.

Ronald D. Moore is no stranger to fan expectations. As a writer and producer for “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (among other “Star Trek” titles), and the executive producer and showrunner of the “Battlestar Galactica” reboot, he learned that it’s impossible to please everyone with every creative decision. At Wednesday night’s New York screening of the mid-season premiere of “Outlander” — an adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s popular historical romance series which began airing its first half of season one on Starz in August — the »

4 January 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has become the eighth movie of 2014 to cross $700 million at the global box office, with the epic conclusion to Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy pushing its worldwide haul to $722.9 million this weekend.

The Battle of the Five Armies is now the fifth-highest grossing movie of last year, and looks like it should go on to overtake X-Men: Days of Future Past ($746 million), Maleficent ($757.8 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($772.6 million), which would leave it trailing only Transformers: Age of Extinction, which pulled in $1.087 billion.

In terms of Jackson’s Middle-earth saga, the final Hobbit movie remains in sixth place and will need to reach $870 million if it is to overtake The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which earned $869.3 million back in 2001.
