‘The Affair’ Star Ruth Wilson on Playing 2 Versions of Her Character and 7 Other Emmy Contender Questions

24 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Showtime’s “The Affair” is not just about the ramifications of an extramarital affair between two people, even as the ramifications of a relationship tear families apart and leave one guy dead. The unique draw of the show is that it’s told from two different perspectives: the man, Noah (Dominic West), and the woman, Allison (Ruth Wilson). “Like everything in life, it’s about how we tell our own stories and how they’re influenced by our experiences,” Wilson told TheWrap. “And how there isn’t really an objective truth. Everything is subjective. It’s a love story in that context, »

'The Affair' co-creator Sarah Treem talks sin, consequence and show's three year plan (Exclusive Video)'

19 June 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"We had three seasons when we pitched it, with an idea of what a potential fourth season could look like," says Sarah Treem about her outlook for "The Affair" when she and co-creator Hagai Levi pitched the series to Showtime. "The first season is the sin, and the third season is the cost. We've been playing a long game for a long time; in some ways that's been good … and in some ways it's been a little hamstrung. We've boxed ourselves into some corners that I wish we hadn't … but sometimes that's where the ingenuity comes from." (Watch our complete video chat below.) -Break- Maura Tierney on telling her side of the story next season in 'The Affair' (Exclusive Video) The series follows New York City writer Noah Solloway (Dominic West) and Montauk waitress Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson), who are married to others, but meet one summer and begin an extramarital affair. »

Why the Punisher works better as a supporting character

14 June 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on why the Punisher works better as a supporting character…

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited. The first season of Daredevil was a gift. The best thing Marvel Studios has put out to date. An almost perfect interpretation of the character in a world where he feels outgunned, under-powered, and fighting a perpetual uphill battle. I’m also excited for all the rumors and announcements for season 2. Jason Statham taking a villainous role? Turkish as Bullseye? Sign me up.

Then this week we heard that the Punisher will be rearing his ugly mug back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will be played by John Bernthal. It just keeps getting better. I’m excited about the casting, but I’m more excited about how the character is being re-introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Punisher is a character that has been adapted about »

Testament Of Youth stars Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington with director James Kent Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

James Kent follows up on the Testament Of Youth, based on Vera Brittain's World War I memoir, the day of Interview Magazine's première, on and off the red carpet with Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington. We connect Helen Mirren's costume designer, Consolata Boyle, with a Coco Chanel style dictum, he confides what getting Joanna Scanlan meant to him, turning Alicia from Ava in Alex Garland's Ex Machina into Vera, and coming on board with David Heyman, the producer of Paddington, Gravity, and the Harry Potter films.

Roland Leighton (Kit Harington) Edward Brittain (Taron Egerton) Vera (Alicia Vikander): "Loving it with the boys."

The ensemble, including Miranda Richardson, Emily Watson, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Jonathan Bailey and Alexandra Roach contributes mightily to the impact Brittain's story continues to have. »

Everything you need to know about Daredevil's new vigilante Punisher

10 June 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are getting the hero they've been clamouring for as The Punisher makes his return to screens in season two of Daredevil.

Frank Castle will be out to clean up Hell's Kitchen when The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal takes on the coveted role as the ruthless and brutal street vigilante.

However, this is far from the first time that The Punisher has appeared in live action – and it might not even be his first appearance in Marvel's shared film universe.

To get you excited for the return of Marvel's Daredevil, we look back on The Punisher's comic book origins and his previous big screen adventures.

1. His origin story was truly explosive

The story of Frank Castle began to unfold in the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man in February 1974, as a creation of iconic Marvel writer Gerry Conway, art director John Romita Sr and artist Ross Andru. »

Peter Gould & Sarah Treem on the Lessons of First-Time Showrunners

8 June 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Peter Gould and Sarah Treem have more in common than you might expect. Their freshman dramas — “Better Call Saul,” AMC’s “Breaking Bad” prequel, and Showtime’s marriage drama “The Affair,” respectively — burst onto screens this season to critical acclaim. And both writer-producers assumed the role of showrunner for the first time. Gould had birthed Saul Goodman back in the “Bad” days along with his fellow “Saul” exec producer Vince Gilligan, while Treem conceived “Affair” alongside Hagai Levi (“In Treatment”). During their hourlong conversation with Variety, Gould and Treem charted lessons learned along the path from script to screen, and discovered even more shared interests: intelligent actors, clever costume designers and the captivating humor of Amy Schumer.

You were both first-time showrunners. What did you learn from the first season?

Sarah Treem: I think I learned more than anything that television really is a team sport, which I knew »

The Affair is compelling television - but will we ever get the truth?

28 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Dominic West and Ruth Wilson’s The Affair demands us to be the jury, weighing the lies of a pair of lovers as they tell the different sides to their story. But who are we supposed to trust – and how will we reach a final judgement?

At away days and staff meetings in recent years, BBC drama commissioners have been prone to ask: “What stories do we want to tell?”, directing attention towards compelling narratives. An equally interesting question, though, might be: “How do we want to tell this story?”

For example, in a brainstorm structured around the search for stories that demand to be told, The Affair (Wednesdays, 9pm, Sky Atlantic) would struggle: it has an off-the-peg premise – the sort of thing that John Updike and John Cheever were familiarising in prose fiction more than 50 years ago – of marital infidelity among the moneyed east coast classes. But it is »

DVD Review: 'Testament of Youth'

26 May 2015 5:14 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ James Kent's magnificent feature debut Testament of Youth (2014), based on Vera Brittain's bestselling memoir about the First World War, is a real tearjerker that should move male and female audiences alike and appeal to fans of Joe Wright's Atonement (2007). Screenwriter Juliette Towhidi (Love, Rosie) focuses on Brittain's coming of age - from the rural idyll where she grew up, through the hallowed halls of Oxford, to the horrors of war - the loss she endured and the carnage she witnessed. All naturally led her down the path of pacifism. Vera (Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina), is desperate to study at Oxford but her father (Dominic West) disapproves of her academic ambition.

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

25 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

The rise of Alicia Vikander

22 May 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

2015 has undoubtedly been Alicia Vikander’s breakthrough year with fantastic lead parts in the thought provoking sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and the harrowing World War I drama Testament Of Youth, which is now available digitally and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD from 25th May. However, this rise to the fore is by no means out of the blue for Vikander, who showed promise as a leading actress in A Royal Affair in 2012 and then went on to hold her own opposite the likes of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate. In this feature we take a look at the very best of Alicia Vikander.

Anna Karenina is a bold, theatrical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s timeless novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard. The film was the third collaboration of Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley with acclaimed director Joe Wright, but »
