Raised By Wolves interview: class, comedy & sex

13 March 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caz and Caitlin Moran’s semi-autobiographical sitcom, Raised By Wolves, feat. Helen Monks and Alexa Davies, starts tonight on Channel 4

After some deliberation, Alexa Davies carefully picks a favourite line from her character in new Channel 4 sitcom Raised By Wolves:

“I fear some intellect does not look good in shorts”.

And her co-star?

“I like ‘wank away the pain’” nods Helen Monks, beaming.

There’s your capsule image of Aretha and Germaine Garry, teen sisters played by Davies and Monks in the Midlands-set comedy - two diametrically opposed peas in a crowded, chaotic and very funny pod.

Caitlin Moran, who co-wrote the autobiographically inspired sitcom with sister Caz (their teenage years providing the respective templates for horny, fanciful Germaine and bookish cynic Aretha), has described the pair as life-long rivals in the mould of Batman v the Joker, Sherlock v Moriarty, Badger v…

“Bodger?” offers Monks. Close enough. »

21th Century Fox’s European Pay-tv Giant Sky Ups Its Content Game

27 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rupert Murdoch’s recently reconfigured Sky paybox looks to have the makings to become a new force in the international TV drama landscape as it begins to flex its pan-European muscles.

At its foundation are 24 million subscribers and $16.7 billion in revenues created through the 2014 merger of the U.K.’s BSkyB and its sister companies in Italy and Germany. It has adopted a multiterritory release strategy, a la Netflix, for certain high-end (and pricier) projects and, to compete in international TV’s current scripted-content arms race, it has greenlit more complex productions aimed to travel.

“There are budgetary, logistical and temporal hurdles to be overcome before the new Sky can be viewed in the same way as an HBO or an AMC can,” cautioned London-based TV analyst Anna Stuart of research firm Ihs Technology, noting that the company still faces challenges as it seeks to become a major player. “But »

Just hours after the female lead role in Fox's Minority Report TV series went to Meagan Good, Stark Sands has landed the male lead, playing the dual roles of precog twins Dash and Arthur.

Laura Regan Is Agatha In "Minority Report"

25 February 2015 6:59 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One question about Fox's upcoming drama pilot "Minority Report" has been answered - they're happy to recast the main roles from the Spielberg film.

Deadline reports that Laura Regan ("They," "Mad Men") is set to take on the role of Agatha, the most gifted of the three pre-cogs, in the upcoming sci-fi procedural series set a decade after the end of the 2002 sci-fi feature.

In the series Dash, one of the three pre-cogs who were the key to the Precrime division in the film, now struggles to lead a 'normal' human life and remains haunted by visions of the future. He soon meets a detective, Lara Vega, who is haunted by her past who just might help him find a purpose to his gift.

Samantha Morton played Agatha in the film and was reportedly offered the chance to reprise the role, an offer she turned down. In the series, she's »

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director."

4 January 2015 3:52 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Richard Moore has departed as Umbrella Entertainment.s theatrical distribution manager as the distributor reassess its approach to theatrical acquisitions.

Umbrella.s founder Jeff Harrison tells If, .We will still invest in theatrical films but are looking at things more carefully..

Like other independent distributors, Umbrella has grappled with a marked downturn in the market for indie films in the past two years as many Us, UK and foreign-language films have struggled to secure and to hold on to screens.

A former director of the Brisbane and Melbourne International Film Festivals, Moore spent the two past years at Umbrella working on titles including The Babadook, Backyard Ashes, When the Queen Came to Town, Words and Pictures, The Last Impresario and The Crossing.

Harrison frets that young people only go to cinemas now to see tentpoles and that quality films such as Nightcrawler,. Boyhood and Sony's Whiplash. are not resonating with mainstream audiences. »
