Greg Yaitanes and Jonathan Tropper Talk Banshee Season 3, Character Journeys, Sexual Tension, Pushing the Envelope, and More

1 April 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even though it will be about a year before Banshee returns to Cinemax for Season 3, the creative team is already hard at work on writing the scripts.  While some questions have been answered and some relationships were resolved, there are plenty of new questions and new story threads to be explored.  So, while you’re waiting to see how it all plays out next, Collider spoke to show creator/writer/executive producer Jonathan Tropper and director/executive producer Greg Yaitanes to get hints about what to expect from Season 3. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Jonathan Tropper and Greg Yaitanes talked about how satisfied they were with the results of Season 2, why they wanted closure with the Rabbit (Ben Cross) plotline, that we can expect to see Fat Au (Eddie Cooper) again, the ongoing battle between Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) and Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen), why Emmett’s »

Ivana Milicevic Talks Banshee, Comparing the Seasons, Getting Fan Feedback, Her Character’s Complicated Relationships & Shooting Prison Scenes

13 March 2014 11:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Cinemax drama series Banshee is wrapping up its second season (and thankfully has already been picked up for a third), as Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who has assumed the identity of the town sheriff, continues to attempt to find a balance between his own criminal activities and solving crimes in a town with more bad elements than any one person can keep track of.  It’s intense, violent and bad-ass, but it’s also one of the most fun roller-coaster rides on television.  The show also stars Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Hoon Lee, Rus Blackwell, Matt Servitto, Demetrius Grosse, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Lili Simmons, Antony Ruivivar and Odette Annable. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Ivana Milicevic talked about how tough this show was to shoot, how she feels Season 2 compared to Season 1, what it’s been like to hear feedback from fans, »

Banshee, Ep. 2.09: “Homecoming” sets up the season two endgame

8 March 2014 6:51 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 9 – “Homecoming”

Written by Jonathan Tropper

Directed by Greg Yaitanes

Airs Friday nights at 10 Cinemax

At the risk of digression, it’s worth pointing out how Banshee is in a similar situation right now to where The Walking Dead was a few months ago. The insanely popular zombie series had a third season building up to a confrontation that never really happened or resolved, and it wasn’t until the midseason finale of the current season that some conclusiveness was brought to that part of the story. Banshee didn’t, by any means, thoroughly disappoint viewers in the same way with the Rabbit confrontation last year. That battle did take place and our heroes technically beat the Ukrainian crime lord. It might have been the youth of the series that helped decide it was best to not let Rabbit die, though, so that he could wreak some more havoc on our protagonists. »

Banshee Exclusive: The Heat is On…Proctor.

27 February 2014 11:54 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

First off, if you're not watching Banshee (Friday, 10/9c), fix that. The show is badass in ways we can't even describe on this site. Secondly, if you are into Cinemax's action drama about Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con posing as the sheriff in the country's most messed up Amish town, then this exclusive clip from this week's episode is relevant to your interests. Especially for those of you wondering how Hood plans to bring down brutal crime lord Proctor (Ulrich Thomsen). Looks like a simple search warrant and a secret room could finally reveal the bloody truth about Banshee, Pa's slaughterhouse bigwig.

10 Horror Remakes That Are Better Than You Might Think

6 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

To preface this article, I’d like to openly acknowledge the fact that there isn’t a single “great” film on this list. Furthermore, given the concept of this piece, it’s safe to say that you’re not going to read about any significantly original films either.

The whole remake thing kind of blew those hopes out of the water. That said, we’re going to eye 10 remakes/reboots/reimaginings that were forced through the meat grinder upon arrival, despite the fact that they didn’t entirely deserve such brutish treatment.

Believe it or not, there are a few remakes out there worth watching. The horror world would have you believe that not a single film on this list qualifies, but I’m here – battling valiantly – to prove the voices of many wrong. Dig in for a closer look at some remakes that, while not monumental, still offer some redeeming qualities. »

Zachary Quinto Joins Hitman Reboot Agent 47

31 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Zachary Quinto has signed on for a supporting role in Fox International's Agent 47 reboot. The news comes just weeks after Rupert Friend signed on to play the title character, replacing the late Paul Walker.

The project was initially scheduled to start production this February, but that was before Paul Walker tragically died this past November in a car crash. The reboot is based on the Square Enix video game franchise, which follows a mysterious assassin known only as Agent 47, who has a barcode tattooed to the back of his head and works for a shadowy organization. The video game series, which has sold more than 20 million units since its launch, was adapted into the 2007 movie Hitman starring Timothy Olyphant, which earned just under $100 million worldwide, with $60.2 million coming from international markets. No story details have been released yet.

Aleksander Bach is directing from a screenplay by Skip Woods, »

How Banshee Became One of Television’s Best Series

30 January 2014 7:07 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Opening remarks

It’s not even February and, already, 2014 is shaping up to be a massive year for television. True Detective announced itself as the year’s first new stand-out series. Against all odds, Dan Harmon and Community returned and are putting together a respectable comeback season. FX’s fantastic and hard-working Justified continues to solidify its place among the greats of the past decade. And Girls‘ unique blend of comedy and drama is once again pushing the narrative boundaries of the half-hour series in its third season.

One series, though, is leading the charge at the beginning of the year. The most unlikely of heroes, Cinemax’s Banshee, in just a matter of three weeks, has matured into something truly special – something a lot of TV writers refer to as “appointment viewing” when describing other series. With limited experience dabbling in co-produced original programming, Cinemax released Banshee – its first »

'Banshee' Q&A: Ulrich Thomsen On Playing Kai Proctor

29 January 2014 4:27 PM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

It's not just Lucas Hood who is keeping residents of "Banshee" and the surrounding areas safe on Cinemax's stylish Friday night drama. Ulrich Thomsen's Kai Proctor has proven to be more than a (dangerous) businessman, even getting in the thick of it last week to defend the very kin who shunned him.

With Burton at his side, he whipped out a baseball bat and defended the Amish community when a gang came to their doorstep seeking revenge for a teenage girl's murder.

That murder in last week's episode is still unsolved, and Solomon, the Amish boy (and Kai's ...

'Banshee' Season 2 clips: Rabbit vows revenge on Carrie

10 January 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Banshee" has released not only some sneak-peek clips of the Season 2 premiere, but the cast has also filmed a series of Vines as their characters. The Vine of Rabbit (Ben Cross) is definitely our favorite, he's super creepy as he vows to get revenge on his daughter, Carrie/Anastasia (Ivana Milicevic), for shooting him.

Check out all the Vines here -- they're a lot of fun.

Below, some sneak peek clips offer a look at the premiere, titled "Little Fish." Rebecca Bowman (Lili Simmons) rejects her Amish lifestyle and heads back to town with Uncle Kai (Ulrich Thomsen), while Zeljko Ivanek makes his debut as FBI Agent Jim Racine, who is bound and determined to find Rabbit and bring him down, so naturally he is highly suspicious of the shoot-out at the metal works in the Season 1 finale that saw Rabbit, well, rabbit into the wind.

Banshee Season Premiere Review: “Little Fish” (Season 2, Episode 1)

9 January 2014 7:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to the increasingly crowded and varied TV landscape, it’s hard to pick out the exact thing that puts Banshee above other shows that overlap with its general shtick. As a setting, Banshee, Pennsylvania has an interesting Appalachian vibe, but it’s one more vividly felt a few states south on FX’s Justified, where you’ll also find more flavorful dialogue spoken by far more distinctive and well-realized characters. The long term damage of too many years spent in prison was more hauntingly portrayed in last year’s Sundance series Rectify, and if you’re looking for knotty, double-life plot shenanigans, you should probably be checking out The Americans instead.

But, come on, plot and texture aren’t really what we come to Banshee for on a Friday night –it’s the oodles of blood, sex, and violence. Unfortunately, the show isn’t the undisputed champ of that, »
