Octavia Spencer Talks Insurgent and Father And Daughters

28 March 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With director Robert Schwentke’s Divergent sequel, Insurgent, opening last weekend, I recently sat down with Octavia Spencer for an exclusive interview. She talked about what it was like on the set of the sequel, working with the great cast, how director Robert Schwentke likes meat and cigars, voicing a character in B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations, director Gabriele Muccino’s Fathers and Daughters, and more. In The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second in what will be a four-film adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s dystopian sci-fi series, the principal characters are on the run in the fringes of society and searching for answers after breaking open the world as they knew it. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James Miles TellerAnsel ElgortNaomi Watts, Jai CourtneyKate WinsletDaniel Dae KimMaggie QRay Stevenson, and Zoe Kravitz.

Toby Stephens Talk Black Sails Season 2 from Cape Town Set

28 March 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Season 2 finale of the Starz series Black Sails will air this Saturday, March 28th, and today we have an interview with star Toby Stephens. A little while back I headed down to the Black Sails set in Cape Town, South Africa and got a chance to chat with Stephens about his character Flint, the big reveal of this season and what last week’s tragic penultimate episode is going to do to move him toward being the pirate we know from “Treasure Island.” So much has happened in nine episodes and if you aren’t caught up, there are some big spoilers ahead. Be warned before you continue. Flint has been through a lot this season. He’s murdered (and tried to murder) some of his closest friends. We learned about his history in England and how he became a pirate. We also saw the man who had the biggest influence on him lost. »

The Many Faces Of Ray Stevenson

27 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Currently number one in Us cinemas, Divergent: Insurgent shows there can still be some financial life in young-adult franchises. A look at its cast list reveals an impressive list of supporting actors, including Ray Stevenson, so let's make him the subject of this week's quiz! Ray Stevenson is often cast as a brute, be it a hero or a villain, and it's easy to see why: the man has a certain violent charisma, as if he promises to explode any minute, and he has the physique to make good on that promise too. Being pegged like that might be a death-knell for an actor, but instead, Ray Stevenson has built an impressive resumeé of memorable roles over the years. In fact, seeing his name attached...

Black Sails Season 3: First Look at Ray Stevenson as Blackbeard

24 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The third season of Black Sails is gearing up to be the most galvanic of the Michael Bay-produced swashbuckling series to date. With Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) alongside his crew mates on the Walrus, you'd think that Starz's action-drama, a kind of prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's famed Treasure Island, couldn't get any wilder, but you'd be wrong. Starz has released the first image of the near-mythical Blackbeard, who will become a major character in the series' third season. Even more exciting is the fact that Blackbeard will be played by Ray Stevenson, a hugely underrated performer who added some much-needed complexity and emotional weight to the otherwise tedious seventh season of Showtime's Dexter. The Irish-born actor also starred in HBO's Rome, and has memorable supporting turns in both the Thor and Divergent franchises.

Why Punisher: War Zone failed, according to its director

23 March 2015 11:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"I always regretted I made a Marvel movie this way", says Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander.

The third attempt to make a success of The Punisher on the big screen - Punisher: War Zone - was released to not much acclaim back in 2008. The movie starred Ray Stevenson as Frank Castle, and while it is has its fans, it failed to kickstart a series of movies, and has long since been marked down as a disappointment.

Not least by its director, Lexi Alexander. She's been addressing the film on her blog, and was asked about working on the project. Specifically, how her collaboration with Marvel Studios was.

"My relationship with them was different than those of the other filmmakers they work with because Lionsgate had the rights to Punisher and paid for the movie", she said.

"Marvel was an equal partner, but unfortunately when there were creative decision conflicts, »
