Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 questions answered

11 December 2014 12:16 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Skye? Daisy? Raina? Trip? The Obelisk? Has the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.mid-season finale left you with questions? James has the answers...

Warning: contains major spoilers for Agents Of Shield season 2.

Last night's Agents of Shield mid-season finale left us with a lot of new information, and not all of it is going to make sense to people who haven't read a lot of Marvel comics. If you watched the episode and felt like there's more going on than you could grasp, we've answered the important questions for you. Feel free to ask anything we missed!

What character is Kyle Maclachlan playing?

Previously referred to as "The Doctor", the mid-season finale gave Maclachlan's character a name. Or rather part of one. He called himself "Cal".

Add that to what we know about him already – the fact that he's a killer, the fact that he struggled to keep his anger in check, »

ITV Plots Period Jekyll & Hyde Series From Young Bond Writer Charlie Higson

26 November 2014 5:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between Universal’s planned resurrections of its most iconic monsters and the considerable success of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, it’s a great time for classic monsters. Now, it appears that Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the latest genre property to head back into development, with word that ITV is plotting an ambitious, 10-part Jekyll & Hyde series.

The adaptation hails from Charlie Higson, the British author behind the bestselling Young Bond series and the teen-targeted, post-apocalyptic Enemy series. Higson will both write and exec-produce. Unlike previous takes on the classic novel, Jekyll & Hyde is set in 1930s London at a time of Hollywood glamour, aerodynamic cars and monster movies.

It centers on Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor, who is described as “young, attractive and troubled.” Apparently, some unfortunate family genes have been passed down. After becoming a doctor, »

New Jekyll & Hyde Drama Planned

24 November 2014 3:03 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If it seems only a few years since someone created a new televised take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde, that’s because it was, thanks to Steven Moffat’s Jekyll in 2007. Yet ITV now has Fast Show veteran Charlie Higson plotting his own version for a new series.Higson, who has established himself as a novelist in addition to his TV work, has come up with an idea to follow Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor, in the 1930s. His grandfather’s experiments have left the family with a curse that Robert has inherited – usually a sensitive, naive man, he slips unwillingly between two personalities when he’s stressed or threatened. Hulk-style, he becomes a superhero with strength, speed and invulnerability that thrives on taking risks and is always getting into trouble. The two sides are eternally wrestling for »

ITV orders Charlie Higson-written Jekyll & Hyde drama

24 November 2014 2:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new ten-part action adventure series based on R.L. Stevenson's Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde is coming to ITV...

Here's an exciting addition to our recent overview of new UK supernatural and sci-fi TV due to arrive over the next year: ITV has commissioned a ten-part drama series from writer Charlie Higson based on Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella, The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde. According to ITV, the series will "exude mystery, fantasy, horror and sci-fi", which all sounds right up our street.

Higson's series will move the action up a few decades, setting Stevenson's story of a young doctor's Hulk-like transformations into a creature with superhuman abilities against the backdrop of 1930s London.

That's not the only change to the original either - this Jekyll's condition is one inherited from his grandfather - the original Dr Jekyll - and not brought about his own experimentations. »

The Shape Of Things To Come: Thn Celebrates The BFI’s Sci-Fi Season

4 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Here at Thn we couldn’t be happier that the BFI is currently celebrating all things Sf with a plethora of events across the UK. With over 1000 screenings of classic film and TV at 200 plus locations, there’s a veritable constellation of sparkly gems for any Sf aficionado to glut themselves with.

Cinema and science fiction have always been close bedfellows—and it’s no surprise really. As far back as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, weird and wonderful ideas about science, humanity, and the universe were captivating readers. And of course, we all know what a godsend Shelley’s creature was to the silver screen.

But what’s the magic ingredient which makes Sf so enduring? You only have to cast your eyes down cinema or TV listings to see the number of features with a speculative element. The X-men franchise, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, »

Trailers From Hell on 'Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde'

27 October 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The title suggests a feminist take on the Robert Louis Stevenson story but director Roy Ward Baker’s 1971 thriller turns out to be a Victorian version of Roger Corman’s "The Wasp Woman." Poker-faced Ralph Bates stars as Dr. Jekyll who feeds on the blood of young women in order to transform into “Mrs.” Hyde, embodied by the intensely alluring Martine Beswicke. Brian Clemen’s ambitious script makes room for appearances by real-life ghouls Burke and Hare and even Jack the Ripper figures into the complex plot. »

40 Great Horror Films for the Halloween Season Part 4: 10-1

24 October 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Movies 10-1

10. Videodrome (1983) directed by David Cronenberg

In David Cronenberg’s world, sex hurts so good; it’s innately disgusting and primeval but at the same time beautiful and becoming. (Kind of like sex in the real world, when you think about it.) Bodies degenerate and mental states corrode under the influence of lust, and yet something new is engendered by the collision of bodies, bodily fluids, the ripping of flesh and the mangling of organs. Through the carrion of ugly comes the attractive flesh, the new flesh. Videodrome, as Jonathan Lethem once quipped, remains Cronenberg’s most penetrative film; he creates a world at once rooted in modernity circa 1983–a world afraid of the advent of television usurping our humanity, over-stimulated times ushering in the end times–and existing in a timeless, placeless vacuum. It’s vast and claustrophobic, prescient and paranoid, of the same lineage as early James Cameron »

Starz Orders More Black Sails And Survivor’s Remorse

13 October 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pirate drama Black Sails will return for a third season, while freshman basketball comedy Survivor’s Remorse has earned a swift second season renewal just days after its premiere.

The fall and rise of the werewolf in cinema

10 October 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With WolfCop out now on disc, Ryan takes a look at how werewolf myths have faded in and out of cinema history...

It might seem strange, from our interconnected, know-it-all 21st century perspective, that people really did once believe that werewolves existed. Legends of wolf-men date back to antiquity, but really began to bite into society’s fear centres in Europe of the Middle Ages.

Take, for example, Peter Stumpp, a 16th century man whose strange story was related in a pamphlet published shortly after his death. A resident of a small town in Cologne, Stumpp claimed to have been given a belt of wolf skin by the Devil, which when worn, gave him the ability to transform into a wolf. In this form, Stumpp said he’d killed and eaten a dozen or so people over the course of 25 years - crimes described in grisly detail in that old pamphlet. »
