The story revolves around a murder onboard the famous train of a rather nasty American tycoon. Belgian detective Uercule Poirot must figure out who is responsible before the train, currently stuck in the snow, is freed and allows for the potential suspects to disembark. The answer, which ties back to a famous child abduction case, is more complicated than he could have ever thought.
Branagh not only directs but stars in the film as Poirot, but what role Jolie will play is unclear. The likes of Jessica Chastain, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, John Gielguld, Vanessa Redgrave, Alfred Molina, Michael York, Anthony Perkins, Jacqueline Bisset, Barbara Hershey, Hugh Bonneville and David Morrissey have starred in the three previous screen versions of the story. »

NBC’s Red Nose Day special was filled with celebrity comedy sketches from the cast of “The Walking Dead” spoofing “Star Wars” to Sarah Silverman’s outlandish jokes. Check out a roundup of some of the night’s funniest spoofs and skits below.
After a long day on set dealing with “so much blood, gore and horror,” the two zombie fighters sought “something that would bring sweetness, light into the world.” In comes “The Walking Dead’s” remake of 1978’s “Star Wars Holiday Special.”
Cast mates Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, David Morrissey and Christian Serratos joined forces with special guest stars Jeff Goldblum, Dax Shepard, Yvette-Nicole Brown and Chris Hardwick for the special, which included »

Tenser and queasier than your average thriller, The Ones Below finds two soon-to-be parents living in a flat above another expecting couple, an improbable scenario that turns even more improbably tragic and horrific. Parenthood is both a blessing and a curse, and writer-director David Farr captures both sides, stretching the creepy-neighbor tension to its breaking point throughout. It’s almost exhausting watching the high-strung domestic drama play out, with nary a moment of respite to cling onto, but Farr’s evocative use of lighting, editing and sound can at times provide something else to ponder should moments of the story prove too intense to stomach.
Harry Potter alum Clémence Poésy plays Kate, the female half of the upstairs, decidedly normal couple in this London-set neighborly standoff. She and her journalist husband Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) have just moved into their second-floor flat in anticipation of the arrival of their first child, »

Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln and the cast of The Walking Dead got very silly for Red Nose Day last night on NBC. And it's something fans are going to want to watch right now! The Red Nose Day special brought a number of familiar Walking Dead faces in to join the fun, including Steven Yeun, Sonequa Martin-Green and Josh McDermitt. The gang spoofs the classic Star Wars Holiday Special with their own Walking Dead Red Nose Day special. And it's as goofy and off the wall as one might expect.
After shutting gofer McDermitt out of their little milkshake party behind the set of The Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln discovers he's left work with something red on his face. It turns out to be quite a bit of blood. Just the sight of this sticky liquid sends him into a quiet depression. And he expresses his desires for something lighter to brighten his day. »
A version of this story originally appeared on EW.com.What would happen if The Walking Dead and the Star Wars Holiday Special joined forces to help raise money for kids around the world as part of Red Nose Day? This, apparently.For this year's annual Red Nose Day, Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, David Morrissey and Christian Serratos joined forces with special guest stars Jeff Goldblum, Dax Shepard, Yvette Nicole Brown and Chris Hardwick to present the spoof, which started in the minds of Lincoln and Reedus after a long day on set. »

“Don’t you just wish you could do something… lighter?” Andrew Lincoln asks Norman Reedus during a a little downtime on The Walking Dead set. In a new NBC video celebrating Red Nose Day (which took place on May 26th), the duo imagine what it would be like if The Walking Dead spoofed the opening of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special.
Featuring Jeff Goldblum and Yvette Nicole Brown as Daryl’s family, Steven Yeun with a ventriloquist dummy named Edmund Rottington III, David Morrissey dressed up as Elvis, Dax Shepard and Chris Hardwick as Han Solo, Melissa McBride ready to do a 16-minute drum solo, and Merle’s hand as, well… Merle’s hand, the intro to The Walking Dead Red Nose Day Special teases quite possibly one of the most entertaining projects that will never get made. But you can still watch the hilarious intro below and think, »

The Ones Below sounds like a serious horror film, and though it wants to call itself a thriller, it’s really something without a comfortable genre home… but, it has a bit in common with horror theories.
The story revolves around Kate (Clémence Poésy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore), who are expecting a baby. They’re a more or less standard couple, who are fairly well off, and their life is offered up as “that which you can relate to.” The ins and outs of their existence moves along a familiar track.
Their one problem is that they live in a two-story flat, and new people move in downstairs. Thus, the ones below. Jon (David Morrissey) and Teresa (Laura Birn) are said ones below, and they are expecting as well.

Properly moody, The Ones Below brews up a strong cup of neighborly paranoia. It's a familiar story. Kate (Clémence Poésy) and Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) live in a lovely flat in a lovely building in a lovely London suburb. Kate is pregnant and they couldn't be happier. They live upstairs and are curious about their new downstairs neighbors, Theresa (Laura Birn) and Jon (David Morrissey). Their impressions are generally positive as far as the somewhat tremulous Theresa is concerned. She too is pregnant, though she is quite anxious about it, since she and her husband have already suffered through unsuccessful attempts to have children. Kate and Justin invite the couple upstairs for a meal, where they finally meet the bombastic Jon. Theresa starts sneaking alcohol,...

Never has breastfeeding looked so sinister. In our exclusive clip from The Ones Below, exhausted new mother Clémence Poésy asks her downstairs neighbor Laura Birn to watch her infant son. But it turns out that the new mother is more suspicious than exhausted, leading to a moment that sends chills down her spine. The movie builds tension slowly and deliberately. And if you've ever lived next door to someone -- anyone, really -- you'll probably be able to relate to what happens. Check the official synopsis below for more detailed information: The Ones Below is the debut feature from writer-director David Farr (screenwriter of Hanna and AMC's The Night Manager), starring the ensemble cast of Clémence Poésy, David Morrissey, Stephen Campbell Moore (Complicit, History Boys,...

Acting neighborly has deadly consequences in playwright and theater director David Farr's feature directorial debut “The Ones Below.” A contained thriller with heavy nods to Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby," the movie may not reinvent the wheel, but it has lots of fun playing in a similar sandbox as the horror classic.

Yesterday, we showed you a new trailer for the Season 6 finale of The Walking Dead titled Last Day on Earth, airing Sunday, April 3 at 9 Pm Et on AMC. The trailer gave us our first look, so to speak, at Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), although we didn't actually get to see his face. As the countdown continues towards this epic 90-minute season finale, AMC has released a new poster that shows us the back of Negan's leather jacket, and his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, effectionatley named Lucille.
In The Walking Dead comics created by Robert Kirkman, Negan makes a rather auspicious debut in the 100th issue. After his Saviors take Rick and his group by surprise, Negan finally shows up, picking one of the Alexandrians at random to kill, deciding on Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun). We don't know for sure yet if Glenn will be killed off, but the »

With Season 6 of The Walking Dead winding down, fans are both dreading and anticipating the season finale, because of how it ties into the original comic books upon which the show is based. Warning, their will be Spoilers below. We know that the iconic Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, will make his on-screen debut in the finale, after being teased throughout the back half of this season, but if his arrival is adapted directly from the comics, that means that fan-favorite character Glenn (Steven Yeun) may be killed off. Entertainment Weekly recently spoke with Steven Yeun, who was surprisingly upbeat about Negan's debut.
"For me, his arrival is awesome. We've been waiting for this person for a long time, and in the comic books, he in a way brings a level of stakes that are kind of unmatched. And so, for me, for Negan to come into the show is, »
Two neighbouring couples, both expecting a baby, go to war in this stylish psychological thriller
There is a delicious and elegant nastiness to this psychological suspense thriller from David Farr, making his feature-directing debut. It is a Polanskian nightmare of the upper middle classes, with extravagant flourishes of melodrama and staginess.
The London it shows us is a but like that in Roman Polanski’s 1965 film Repulsion, and the chamber music of polite dysfunction is a little like Polanski’s 2011 version of Yasmina Reza’s play Carnage. We witness an intimately horrible and psychotic duel between two well-heeled couples: one living in the flat below the other. Justin (Stephen Campbell Moore) and Kate (Clémence Poésy) are laid-back friendly professionals; Teresa (Laura Birn) and Jon (David Morrissey) are conservative and uptight. But they have one important thing in common: both Teresa and Kate are pregnant. The unacknowledged competition and resentment lead to a convulsion of fear. »
