James Gray, Joachim Trier, Terry Gilliam, Armando Iannucci, and Alain Guiraudie Move Forward with New Projects

12 May 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Our huge excitement for James Gray‘s next feature, The Lost City of Z, can partly be explained by this great filmmaker’s less-than-prolific output. You can imagine, then, how nice it is to hear yet another title — and possibly his most interesting endeavor yet — is soon to roll cameras.

For years, there’s been talk of a sci-fi feature known as To the Stars. As co-written by Gray and Ethan Gross, it concerns “an odyssey through the Solar System,” in which astronauts — using “a technology of space travel that would be believable today” — are tasked with bringing a “renegade” one of their own back to Earth. It’s supposedly inspired by both Heart of Darkness — by extension, probably Apocalypse Now, too; it’s a Gray favorite and touchstone for The Lost City of Z — and the emotional trauma endured by men who walked on the moon, a subject the »

‘Penny Dreadful’ Creator Talks Season 3, Vanessa’s Demons and the American West

4 May 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At the end of the second season of “Penny Dreadful,” the show’s characters were scattered to the four winds, having vanquished one formidable foe but at great personal cost. In the May 1 third-season premiere of the Showtime drama, the Victorian characters at the heart of the drama began to take their first steps out of self-imposed isolation.

But as creator John Logan explained in a recent interview, “Penny Dreadful’s” protagonists still have a long way to go before they’re reunited and able to take on the grave new challenges they’ll face this year. Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) and Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) began the new season on separate continents, two of them far from their usual London haunts. The Creature (Rory Kinnear) was shivering in the Arctic, and his creator, Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), was suffering the after-effects of yet another relationship gone wrong, »

Penny Dreadful Season 3 Review

2 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The grand, ghastly Guignol that is Showtime’s Penny Dreadful ended its thrilling second season by entering a new act, one that found its myriad characters scattered to the winds without any clear adversary or obstacle to reunite them.

Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) had departed to Africa, both to bury his slain friend Sembene and to find new purpose. Ethan (Josh Hartnett) was in chains, being extradited to America to stand trial for horrific crimes committed by his lupine alter ego. The Creature (Rory Kinnear) had struck out for the Arctic, in self-imposed exile. And despite remaining in London, Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) was so devastated by losing Lily (Billie Piper) to the flirtations of Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) that he’d turned to the needle.

“So we walk alone,” Ethan’s parting words to Vanessa last year, are still ringing in everyone’s ears – especially, »
