Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer and poster for their upcoming thriller My Cousin Rachel, which stars Rachel Weisz as the title character and Sam Claflin as Philip Ashley. This film will mark the third time that the timeless original novel by Daphne Du Maurier will be adapted, with the first big-screen adaptation debuting in 1952, starring Olivia de Havilland as Rachel Ashley and Richard Burton as Philip Ashley. The novel was then adapted into a 1983 mini-series starring Geraldine Chaplin and Christopher Guard as Rachel and Philip.

My Cousin Rachel is a dark romance that tells the story of a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

Heavy is the head that’s adjacent to the crown.

In the second season of Netflix’s “The Crown,” Queen Elizabeth won’t be dominating the spotlight this time.

5 Details About Season 2 of The Crown That Will Make You Royally Excited

15 March 2017 9:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It didn't take long for audiences to get swept up in The Crown, Netflix's decadent dramatization of Queen Elizabeth II's first few years on the throne, and it's pretty obvious why. Although there are a few things in the hit series that didn't actually happen, it still captures the essence of what it was like for the young royal to take over for her father, King George VI, after his shocking death in 1952. With season one in the bag (which reportedly came at a $130 million price tag), it's time to look forward: what do we know about season two? The Main Cast Lead actress Claire Foy took home multiple best actress trophies this award season for her spot-on, layered performance as the queen, so it should come as no surprise that she's signed on for season two. She and costar Matt Smith, who plays Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip, are »

Michael C. Hall will be playing JFK when “The Crown” returns to Netflix for its second season.

Hall will be joined by “Quarry” star Jodi Balfour as Jackie Kennedy. Season 2 of the English drama, which doesn’t yet have a premiere date, will segue into the 1960s, as Queen Elizabeth II loses her third prime minister to scandal amidst the illegal use of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces in Egypt.

The series has also added Matthew Goode to the cast as Lord Snowden, husband of Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby).

The Crown,” produced by Sony Pictures TV’s Left Bank Pictures, is rumored to be the streaming service’s most expensive production, clocking in at over $150 million. The series won two Golden Globes last month — for best drama series and best actress in a drama, Claire Foy. Foy and John Lithgow, who played Winston Churchill, also nabbed SAG Awards for their performances.
