New Into The Wood Movie Delivered Surprising Humor,Drama & More

27 December 2014 8:36 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Walt Disney Pictures released their new musical/fantasy flick "Into The Woods" into theaters this past Thursday. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty entertaining and more comical than I thought it would be. It stars: Tracey Ullman, Frances de la Tour, Johnny Depp, Lucy Punch, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, Simon Russell Beale, Tammy Blanchard, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Christine Baranski, Billy Magnussen, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, MacKenzie Mauzy, Richard Glover, Joanna Riding, and Annette Crosbie. The movie revolved a couple of different characters and plotlines that all came together,full circle, towards the end. We saw Cinderella, wishing she could attend the King's festival, but instead, was treated like crap by her evil step sisters. Meanwhile, the baker and his wife wanted to have kids, but found out they were secretly cursed by the witch who had a unpleasant past with the baker's father. »

26 December 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I didn't watch any of the first season of Penny Dreadful but I'm tempted to power through it before season 2 arrives.  I've heard pretty much nothing but good things about the show, it's horror (my wheelhouse), and it stars Eva Green.  That's a lot of assets in its corner.  This new teaser isn't half bad either, giving us a slightly gory glimpse of what's to come in the new year. Season 1 players Josh HartnettTimothy DaltonReeve CarneyRory KinnearBillie PiperHarry TreadawayHelen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale will also return and will be joined by Patti LuPoneDouglas HodgeSarah Green and Jonny Beauchamp.  Hit the jump to check out that Penny Dreadful season 2 teaser.  Showtime will air the second run of the series sometime in 2015.

Paterson Joseph interview: Good Omens, Doctor Who, Neil Gaiman

19 December 2014 8:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paterson Joseph chats to us about Good Omens, Peep Show, being cut from Paddington, and why he'd "never say never" to playing the Doctor...

Where do you begin with Paterson Joseph? Be it on stage or the small screen, he’s popped up everywhere from Shakespeare to Survivors, from Casualty to Green Wing. To some, he’s the suave, sharply dressed and, latterly, lapsed alcoholic Alan Johnson in Peep Show. But to others, this writer included, he’ll always be the mysterious, flamboyant swashbuckler, the Marquis de Carabas, from Neil Gaiman’s rich sub-London fantasy Neverwhere.

Now, he’s appearing on BBC Radio 4 in a festive double bill of prestige productions. First, he’s giving voice to fast-food mogul and horseman of the apocalypse Famine in Good Omens, adapted from the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Then, on New Year’s Day, he’s Pierre, the passionate protagonist »

21 November 2014 10:54 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve still got a while to go until Penny Dreadful returns, but Showtime just unveiled the very first image as well as a few additional details regarding what Vanessa (Eva Green), Ethan (Josh Hartnett) and the rest of the gang are up to in the new season.  Despite Vanessa’s little fling with Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), it’s always seemed likely that she and Ethan would eventually get together and the new image and plot information do suggest that it could happen.  There's no guarantee that this "deeper bond" means romance, but it does seem like a safe bet. Hit the jump to check out the first Penny Dreadful season 2 image and to catch the new story details as well. Here’s what’s going down in season 2 according to the press release: This season, Vanessa and Ethan form a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. »
