Dominic West and Ruth Wilson's The Affair to air on Sky Atlantic

20 March 2015 3:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Affair will air exclusively on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland.

The Golden Globe-winning Showtime drama starring Dominic West and Ruth Wilson will premiere in May.

Sky has also picked up the rights for its upcoming second season.

The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair between Noah Solloway (West) and Alison Bailey (Wilson).

The story is told separately from both Noah and Alison's perspectives, using their distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue.

Sky Atlantic director Zai Bennett said: "I'm delighted we have secured The Affair for Sky Atlantic.

"Its intricate storytelling and phenomenal acting sit perfectly on the channel, further cementing our channel's position as the home of quality drama in the UK."

The Affair also stars Maura Tierney, Joshua Jackson and Julia Goldani Telles. Watch a trailer below: »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Early Look at 43 Movies Vying for Best Picture

9 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As always, March is too early to get any kind of firm grasp on what will or won't be an Oscar contender come the end of the year, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to speculate. Last year, only two of the nine films I predicted out of the gates actually ended up receiving Best Picture nominations at the 2015 Oscars -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which goes to show just how much we know in advance. In fact, looking at the films I had on the outside looking in, only Best Picture winner Birdman was listed. But hey, at least I had three of the top contenders in the early year conversation, that's something... rightc When it comes to this year, I feel even less certain than I did last year. I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot since only two of the 43 films on »

Ruth Wilson believes The Affair too raunchy for UK

9 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Ruth Wilson believes 'The Affair' is too raunchy for British TV. The actress won a Golden Globe award for her performance as Alison Bailey in the first series of the drama, and although it has proved to be a hit on Showtime in the Us, she suspects the many sexual scenes may be holding it back from audiences in the UK. When asked why it hasn't been picked up by a British channel, she said: ''I've no idea. Maybe sexual content? I don't know, it's not that bad.'' However, the 33-year-old Brit - who stars opposite Dominic West in the programme - is »

Ruth Wilson: ‘People know me as my characters. They don’t know me’

8 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Following her Golden Globe-winning turn in Us drama The Affair, and her portrayal of a tough farmer’s wife in the forthcoming film Suite Française, Ruth Wilson’s forte for playing strong, complex women is helping her handle fame

Ruth Wilson, the 33-year-old British actress, has made a pretty well unimprovable start to 2015. In January, she won a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for her role in The Affair. The competition was daunting – Homeland’s Claire Danes and Viola Davis among them – but Wilson came through for her harrowing depiction of Alison, a waitress dealing with the death of her son who begins a liaison with an older writer played by Dominic West. Then, a couple of days after the awards, she made her Broadway debut in New York in Constellations, a two-hander opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. The reviews couldn’t have been more glowing if she’d written them herself. »

Giancarlo Esposito Boards Jodie Foster’s Money Monster

5 March 2015 2:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Giancarlo Esposito, known by Breaking Bad fans as the villainous Gus Fring, is continuing his transition into big-screen features with TriStar’s next star-studded drama. Directed by Jodie Foster, Money Monster has slowly been collecting A-listers to populate what’s expected to be a serious awards contender.

Written by Jim Kouf, Alan Difiore and Jamie Linden, the film delves into the world of insider trading through gregarious television personality Lee Gates (George Clooney). On his show, Money Monster, he offers stock market hints and tips to members of the public and miscalculates an estimate – causing stock to plummet. One member of the public whom is extremely dissatisfied with Gates’ behavior storms the TV studio with a gun in tow. The disgruntled man, Kyle Budwell – thought to be played by Unbroken‘s Jack O’Connell – holds Gates at gunpoint, demanding that he enforce a profitable stock rise by the end of the day, »

13 Reasons Why Elizabeth Taylor Is Still the Queen of Hollywood

27 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's time to raise your glass and rattle your jewelry for a birthday toast to Elizabeth Taylor, who'd have turned 83 on Feb. 27. Though memories of her begin to fade, the legacy of the woman who was perhaps the most beautiful, most popular, most everything movie star of all time remains as vivid as ever.

Younger moviegoers may wonder what all the fuss was about. Here, then, are 13 reasons why Taylor remains, decades after her prime and four years after her death, the queen of Hollywood.

1. In a way, she never left.

Even though she died in 2011, they're still showing her in commercials for her perfume, White Diamonds.

2. She's the original diva.

Long before Beyonce, the Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, and other current divas, Taylor pretty much invented the concept that a celebrity's offscreen life was just as much a performance as onscreen, and just as much part of the job description. »
