The first trailer for ‘Manhattan’ Season Two deals with secrets

19 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wgn America’s nuclear bomb development period drama Manhattan is poised to return for a second season later this year with some major new additions to the cast.

Created by Masters of Sex scribe Sam Shaw, the show’s second season now has its first trailer. Manhattan’s second season will see John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, and Alexia Fast joined by William Petersen and Neve Campbell.

The show is set in 1943 and is a dramatised version of the goings-on of The Manhattan Project, real-life experiment by the Us government where the country’s top scientists were quarantined in a desert facility in Los Alamos, New Mexico, and tasked with making feasible a nuclear bomb to use in the then-ongoing World War II.

The trailer itself steers clear of the science behind the bomb, focusing instead on the toll the project is taking on the individuals and their relationships, while »

Watch: Wgn America’s ‘Manhattan’ Teases Season 2 Casting

18 August 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wgn America has released its first trailer for the second season of its period drama series “Manhattan.”

Following its first season, the trailer hints that the stakes are high for characters in 1940s Los Alamos, N.M., during the development of nuclear weapons. ​The trailer also provides a first-look at new cast members William Petersen (“CSI”) as Col. Emmett Darrow and Neve Campbell (“Scream”) as the “first lady of Los Alamos,” Kitty Oppenheimer.

Created by “Masters of Sex” writer Sam Shaw and directed by “The West Wing’s” Thomas Schlamme, the series also stars John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Rachel Brosnahan and Mamie Gummer. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television, Skydance Television and Tribune Studios.

“This second season is all organized around an event and, kind of, uncannily and accidentally,” Shaw teased in July at the show’s Television Critics Association panel at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photos Feature Mystique, Beast and Hovak

30 July 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The latest issue of Empire is being quite generous with new photos. Yesterday, we got to see 8 never-before-seen images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Today, we get a sneak peek at another highly anticipated superhero movie hitting in 2016. The magazine has debuted three new photos from X-Men: Apocalypse. Plus a high-res version of a still we've seen before that has caused some controversy.

So, it's safe to say that, a few weeks removed from Comic-Con, the look of X-Men: Apocalypse's main villain has not sat well with fans. Oscar Isaac plays the world's first known Mutant, an evil force awakened from his Egyptian tomb who goes on a quest to collect his four horsemen. In this latest high-res still, we get the same select moment that we previously saw. Oscar Isaac is flanked by Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Psylocke (Olivia Munn), who both look great. Yet, he »

First Manhattan Season 2 Trailer Keeps the Questions Coming

25 June 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, the rebranded Wgn America debuted two new series, each with a historical setting: the batshit insane Salem, and the far more demure Manhattan. Manhattan is set in 1943 Los Alamos, the site of the Manhattan Project, which saw the development of the atomic bomb. Everything is a secret, not only from public knowledge, but even among those working at the facility themselves, who are confined to a true need-to-know basis. The first teaser for Season 2 (I haven’t had a chance to catch up with Season 1 yet, although I hear it’s really good! Too much good TV …) has the show’s main characters being asked “Are you good at keep secrets?” “Would you sacrifice your family for the good of the country?” “Have you ever had sexual relations with a communist?” And most importantly, “Have you ever conspired to destroy the world?” To that one the reply is: maybe. »

Olivia Williams on epic scale and scope of 'Manhattan' (Exclusive Video)

For “Manhattan” star Olivia Williams, this Wgn period drama about the building of the first atomic bomb "is the greatest sci-fi story ever told, and yet it’s true."

Second Opinion – Man Up (2015)

31 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Man Up, 2015.

Directed by Ben Palmer.

Starring Simon Pegg, Lake Bell, Ophelia Lovibond, Rory Kinnear, Olivia Williams, Sharon Horgan, Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Harriet Walter and Ken Stott.

Synopsis:

A single woman who’s mistaken for a stranger’s blind date, leads to her finding the perfect boyfriend.

Nancy (Lake Bell) and Jack (Simon Pegg) meet under the clock at Waterloo station by accident. Over the next thirty six hours lies are told, truths uncovered and a rom-com unfolds of genuine warmth and honesty.

Romantic comedies exist inside a bubble. Middle England, middle upper class and insulated by a lack of reality. Richard Curtis and Hugh Grant single-handedly defined the genre a while back. Pithy one liners delivered by characters with no means of income. Yet capable of living in parts of London beyond the reach of mere mortals. These amongst other things are what the romantic comedy has come to mean. »

28 May 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The romantic comedy Man Up – which Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis says “makes an early claim for not only rom-com of the year but also comedy of the year” in his review – is out in UK cinemas tomorrow, and to whet your appetite we’ve got two clips for you here featuring stars Simon Pegg and Lake Bell; check them out after the official synopsis…

Meet Nancy (Lake Bell): 34, single (still), hung-over (again), and exhausted by the endless futile set ups foisted upon her by well-meaning but clueless friends. As she travels across London to toast another 10 years of her parent’s blissfully happy marriage, 40 year old, freshly-hatched divorcee Jack (Simon Pegg) mistakes her for his 24 year old blind date.

Man Up review: Simon Pegg and Lake Bell's rom-com is a winner

28 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ben Palmer; Screenwriter: Tess Morris; Starring: Simon Pegg, Lake Bell, Olivia Williams; Rory Kinnear; Running time: 88 mins; Certificate: 15

Cupid's arrow takes a circuitous route before finding its mark in Man Up, a truly rib-tickling rom-com that delivers the heady buzz of a great first date. But it's American actress Lake Bell (doing a fine English accent, here) who looks set to win viewers' hearts, more so than leading man Simon Pegg who generously acts as her 'straight man' - albeit slightly dizzied by the whirlwind of weird that Bell creates around him.

Bell, who also impressed with her 2013 writing/directing debut In a World..., stars as Nancy, vaguely depressed at still being single and incorrigibly goofy at 34 years old. However, judging by the way she tucks into a baguette on a crowded train, simultaneously complaining about her love life, she's not overly self-consciousness either.

‘The Haunting of Radcliffe House’ DVD Review

18 May 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Olivia Williams, Matthew Modine, Antonia Clarke, Adam Thomas Wright, Richard Dillane, Howard Lee, Jonathan Jaynes, Rebecca Calder, Steve Oram, David J. Peel, Mark Heenehan, Stephen Chance | Written and Directed by Nick Willing

When it comes to ghost stories focused on haunted houses my personal favourites are The Haunting and The Legend of Hell House, the psychological scares make them genuinely creepy and most importantly effective.  The Haunting of Radcliffe House (also known as Altar) which has recently been released on DVD makes an attempt to scare its audience in classic ways, is it be effective?

When Meg Hamilton (Olivia Hamilton) is asked to renovate Radcliffe Hall she moves her family, including artist husband Alec (Matthew Modine) into the house while she works on it.  As she discovers more about the house though including the revelation of a secret room in the attic things gradually push Meg to decide to move out of the house. »

DVD Review – The Haunting of Radcliffe House (2014)

12 May 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Haunting of Radcliffe House, 2014.

Directed by Nick Willing.

Starring Olivia WilliamsMatthew ModineAntonia Clarke, Steve Oram, Jonathan Jaynes, Adam Thomas Wright and Rebecca Calder.

Synopsis:

A family move into an old house on the Yorkshire moors and begin to fall under its spell.

Within the first 10 minutes of The Haunting of Radcliffe House (a.k.a. Altar, which is a much less foreboding title) it would take somebody who had lived in a cave all of their life not to notice the three obvious plot points lifted from other (better) horror movies, and if you’ve never seen Hellraiser, The Shining or The Amityville Horror then a) what are you doing with your life and b) you’d be better off watching those than you would this film. That is because The Haunting of Radcliffe House does not have an original thought or idea contained within its paper-thin script or uninspiring direction, »

Altar (2014) Film Review

2 May 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

by Jesse Miller

MoreHorror.com

Altar, the new horror film written and directed by Nick Willing, starts off strongly as it introduces the location, the lavish house and characters all via some gorgeous cinematography and sweeping shots of the moors.

From there on, strange things begin to occur. It starts off with a rattling window, then continues with ghostly apparitions that haunt the kind family.

It's all very slow-burning stuff and rather effective, with director Nick Willing making good use of lighting and sound design to capture the atmosphere and conjure scares.

The whole film looks, feels and plays out as like a good old-fashioned haunting flick similar to The Amityville Horror.

The main problem with this feature is, aside from some strokes of genius that provide genuinely creepy moment’s, this is one horror that is mostly derivative of what has come before.

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Tribeca 2015: ‘Man Up’ Fails to Woman Up

23 April 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Man Up (2015)

Written by Tess Morris

Directed by Ben Palmer

UK, France, 2015

At 34, Nancy (Londoner-accented Lake Bell) is a flakey journalist on the reluctant look for love at the pestering of friends and family. Through a case of mistaken identity hinging on a self-help book, she winds up on a date turned epic day with Jack (Simon Pegg), an online marketing manager. Charming, right? It’s this on-the-nose “charm” which will divide audiences into lovers and haters (with this viewer falling more towards the latter). In spite of a stellar cast, Man Up falls flat on its promising premise of being a rom-com for nonbelievers.

From the very outset, Nancy is the cool-not-cool girl of quirky nonchalance – watching Silence of the Lambs, writing affirmations in her moleskine, chomping on a baguette, flailing in interactions with members of the opposite sex. Everything she does and says denotes a certain out-of-place yet above-it-all persona, »
