Peter Jackson explains how he’s expanding the source material for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

28 September 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than three months to go before we return to Middle-earth for the final instalment of The Hobbit trilogy, Peter Jackson has been talking to Total Film about the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and specifically how he’s expanding the source material in order to provide a suitably epic climax to his Lord of the Rings prequel.

“We’re developing more story with the elves and with Gandalf. We’re developing the character of Bard the Bowman. We’re able to expand what was there, bring in a little bit extra to the mythology and open it up a bit. What we’re trying to do is have a lot of that conflict and resolution happen during the course of the battle, so it doesn’t just become all action. There’s still a plot with the characters to follow, even though they’re »

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.

Outlander Recap: The Wedding Night

20 September 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

You don't have to have read Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series to know this was the episode we've all been waiting for. To protect herself from Capt. Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) and the English, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) must wed Jamie (Sam Heughan) and consummate the marriage to become a part of Clan MacKenzie. The key word here is "consummate." This week's episode of Outlander was all about sex: awkward, "I'm a virgin" sex; passionate, "women have orgasms too?" sex; tender "I just gave you my dead mother's necklace" sex. But this wasn't just gratuitous cable intercourse, this sex was earned over the past six episodes, »

First Look: Claire Marries Jamie on Outlander (Photos)

17 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Here comes the bride! It's the episode every fan of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series has been waiting for: This Saturday, after countless lingering stares in low candlelight and nigh unbearable sexual tension, Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) finally, finally ties the knot with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) on the Starz show. Their journey to this moment hasn't been easy. Since Claire was transported back in time to 1743 in the series' premiere, she's been held captive against her will, beaten and nearly raped. Her multiple attempts to make it back to the standing stones at Craig na Dun may have failed as well, »

Outlander's Dougal MacKenzie Is the Biggest Bamf on TV

16 September 2014 4:14 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Warning: This post contains Spoilers for all 6 previously aired episodes of Outlander.

If you aren’t watching Outlander yet, you should be. Yes, it’s basically a historical romance, but most historical romances don’t have disturbingly graphic flogging scenes like the one we saw on Saturday. Good hell, that was awful. Also, there is time travel, so it’s a fantasy historical romance. Plus, it’s about tension betweens Scots and the English, and that is very on trend. There are a lot of reasons to watch, but as time goes by and the show gets better and better, Dougal MacKenzie has become my absolute favorite thing on any TV show ever.

Played by Graham McTavish, Dougal MacKenzie is the image of the tough, rugged highlander. He is large and physically imposing, bald and bearded, with a strong nose and craggy features, plus a jawline that could cut glass. »

Coast Guard Drama 'The Finest Hours' Casts Ben Foster

15 September 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Foster has signed on to star alongside Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger in Disney's The Finest Hours.

The plot is based on the true story of a 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission, following one of the worst storms ever to hit the East Coast, which literally ripped an oil tanker in half. Facing sub-zero temperatures and waves as high as 70 feet, four Coast Guard members set off in a lifeboat to rescue over 30 crew members who were stranded in the sinking vessel. The mission is still considered to be the greatest 'small boat rescue" in Coast Guard history. No details were given for Ben Foster's character.

Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) is directing from a script by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter), which was adapted from the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. Production is currently under way.

Outlander Recap: Claire Gets Engaged!

14 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"Are you here by your own choice?" a redcoat asks Claire (Caitriona Balfe) at the start of this week's episode of Outlander. It's a vital question for Claire - she waits to respond and everyone looks shifty while waiting for her to answer. "I am a guest of the Clan MacKenzie," she says at last, surprising Dougal (Graham McTavish). The British decide to take her back to their general anyways, and Dougal insists on accompanying her. Once they reach the garrison, however, he's relentlessly mocked by the British. Claire defends Dougal, coming dangerously close to outing herself as a Scottish sympathizer. »

Outlander Video: Star, Showrunner Deconstruct Filming That Flogging Scene

13 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Saturday's Outlander. Read at your own risk.]

Outlander has reached one of many pivotal moments from the first book on which it's based, but even if you knew what was coming, Saturday's episode was still hard to watch.

The hour began with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Dougal (Graham McTavish) coming face-to-face with the Red Coats, and our leading lady assuring them that she had been with the MacKenzie clan willingly. Still, Claire had to convince another man of her motives: Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), the man who almost raped her when she first fell through the stones at Craigh na Dun.

'Outlander' Q&A: Tom Brittney On Lt. Jeremy Foster

13 September 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"Outlander's" Claire Randall has been involved in a variety of sticky situations since landing in 1743, but in last week's episode of the Starz series, the TV heroine was presented with an opportunity to change her fate after meeting a rather chivalrous young man in red.

As Lieutenant Jeremy Foster, actor Tom Brittney made a splash during the broadcast when his English soldier character twice offered Claire (Caitriona Balfe) assistance during conflicts with her Highlander guard Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish). And, despite the color of his coat (previously, Claire's Redcoat interactions were frightening), Tom's determined and principled Lt. Foster ...
