Watch: Maggie Smith Stars as 'The Lady in the Van' in First Trailer

1 March 2015 2:01 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Would you like to push me up the street?" Today's trailer selection is for an adaptation of a play about an elderly woman named Mary Shepherd who lived in a battered car on the driveway of the writer Alan Bennett for 15 years. Oscar winning actress Maggie Smith plays Miss Shepherd, a character she has played before on stage and on the radio, and she looks like quite a hoot. She's joined by Alex Jennings as Alan Bennett, with appearances by Dominic Cooper, James Corden, Jim Broadbent, Frances de la Tour and a few others. The film won't be released for another 8 months, so this is more of our first teaser, but it's also just a fun introduction (for those unfamiliar) to an odd story that should make for an amusing film. Enjoy. Here's the first UK trailer for Nicholas Hytner's The Lady in the Van, from Sony's YouTube (via »

Russell Tovey: ‘I was a scared, skinny little rat. Then I hit the gym…’

1 March 2015 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It took the Essex actor a decade to fully regain his confidence after falling victim to a knife attack at 18. And a decade, too, to be comfortable portraying his own sexuality on stage and screen. Now the former History Boy is going from strength to strength

It’s freezing in London, three-layer weather, but Russell Tovey is wearing only a T-shirt. So what, I say, steering the 33-year-old inside a warm-looking cafe, you don’t feel the cold these days? Now that you’re…

Now that the actor is broader, musclier, or to use a phrase that was popular in his native Essex when he was growing up, a unit. If you’ve kept a mental picture of Russell Tovey from his early-career days as one of the National’s original History Boys, or from his later screen stuff, in Him & Her and Sherlock – well, take that mental picture and stretch it. »

Agent Carter episode 8 review: Valediction

25 February 2015 8:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Agent Carter concludes a strong series with a satisfying finale. What more could we ask for? Oh yeah, more...

This review contains spoilers.

1.8 Valediction

Well, it's fair to say that was a pretty satisfying conclusion to a strong TV series. From the audience-pleasing return of the Captain America radio play to the fantastic cameo in the final scene, there's very little about the ending to Agent Carter that you can criticise, with the possible exception of there being slightly too much Howard Stark for a show without his name in the title. Because as much as everyone loves Dominic Cooper being the 40s Tony Stark, his presence has the same effect as Robert Downey Jr.'s, sucking the audience's eyes away from every other character.

That said, the episode's denouement – a reprisal of Captain America's ending where Stark and Carter work through their Steve Rogers issues together – was near-masterful »

Agent Carter, Ep. 1.08, “Valediction”: So long, farewell, Ve Day, and goodbye!

24 February 2015 10:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Agent Carter, Season 1, Episode 8, “Valediction”

Written by Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters

Directed by Christopher Misiano

Aired at 9pm (Et) on Tuesdays on ABC

The entirety of the Agent Carter finale feels like the writers’ room looked at their board of index cards cataloguing ongoing storylines and realized they’d bitten off more than they could wrap up effectively in eight quick episodes. In these last hours, ignored relationships fly back in (literally and figuratively) as quickly as they were scrapped half a season ago, the climax is kept decidedly small-scale and simple, and multiple shortcuts leave everything a bit un-factchecked and everyone a bit out of character for the sake of squeezing in the most important beats. The worst part about these shortcuts is that if some superfluous scenes had been removed, those wasted minutes could have been spent filling in details elsewhere. For example, the only true reason that »

Review: ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’ Just Didn’t Have Legs (Spoilers)

24 February 2015 10:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When critics are asked why they sometimes hedge when heaping praise on new series, an appropriate three-word response would be “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” Despite an extremely handsome pilot and appealing lead in Hayley Atwell, the ABC limited series meandered through several episodes that merely seemed to inch the story along, rallying only slightly in the not wholly satisfying conclusion. So while the show represented an enterprising line extension of the Marvel universe, the experiment has to be viewed as a miss, at least creatively speaking, which just didn’t have legs.

Like all of Marvel’s properties (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched the finale), “Agent Carter” derived some additional oomph from tying into the company’s flagship titles – in this case, both “Captain America” and “Iron Man,” inasmuch as the latter’s father, wealthy playboy/inventor Howard Stark (an under-used Dominic Cooper), set the storyline in motion. »

‘Agent Carter’ Finale Postmortem: Producers Talk Surprise Cameo, What’s Next for Peggy

24 February 2015 10:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Agent Carter” season one finale, titled “Valediction”

Agent Carter” ended its first season with an emotional gut-punch and then — in true Marvel fashion — with a tantalizing tease, all but guaranteed to leave viewers wanting more and further illustrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s central motto — “everything is connected.” The hour saw Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and her allies, Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) and Agents Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) succeed in defeating the manipulative Dr. Faustus/Fennhoff (Ralph Brown) and saving the city. But in the episode’s final moments, the newly incarcerated hypnotist met his equally terrifying cellmate, Dr. Zola (Toby Jones), the Hydra scientist who became the architect of the Winter Solider program that turned Captain America’s (Chris Evans) former ally, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), into a »

Whoa! If you had told us there would be a major Captain America cameo on Agent Carter's epic season finale, we never would have guessed who it was. Warning: Major spoilers below! If you have yet to watch the Agent Carter finale "Valediction," look away now!

‘Agent Carter’ Showrunners Preview Peggy’s Leadership, ‘Defining’ Moments in Season Finale

24 February 2015 8:37 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On last week’s “Agent Carter,” the Ssr lost their leader, Chief Dooley (Shea Whigham); their enemy, Dr. Ivchenko/Fennhoff (aka Marvel comics villain Doctor Faustus, played by Ralph Brown); and one of Howard Stark’s most deadly inventions, Item 17 — a poisonous gas that turns regular people into murderous psychopaths. Suffice it to say, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and her allies have their work cut out for them in tonight’s season finale.

Variety spoke to “Agent Carter” showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters ahead of the season one denouement, titled “Valediction,” to find out what’s in store for Peggy and Jarvis (James D’Arcy) when Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) makes his long overdue return, and how Agents Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) will handle working with Peggy now that there’s a power vacuum in the Ssr.

Agent Carter: two clips tease tonight's finale action

24 February 2015 12:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Agent Carter wraps up its run in the USA, we’ve got two clips from tonight’s finale, including Dominic Cooper’s return…

Although it still remains tragically unavailable to the law-following TV fans of the UK, Agent Carter’s debut run is almost complete in the USA.

As such, the following clips may be a bit spoilery for those who are waiting to watch the show via legal means once DVD releases and online streaming deals are hashed out.

However, for those with the luck to watch the show as it goes out, here’s the first clip, which showcases the aftermath of the nefarious scheme that played out in the previous episode (this one's particularly spoilery, non-up-to-date folks)…

Next up, we’ve also had a look at a clip from later in the episode. It features the long-awaited return to prominence from Dominic Cooper’s Howard Stark, »

Warcraft's Duncan Jones defends CGI in films: 'It's a tool like any other'

20 February 2015 6:25 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director Duncan Jones has defended the use of CGI in modern films.

The Warcraft filmmaker took to Twitter to say that computer graphics are a "tool like any other" and "can be done well".

Jones wrote: "I hear this "CGI in film sucks," mantra again & again. It doesnt. Its a tool like any other. It can be done well & it can be done s**t.

"The best CGI has you forgetting its CGI, and accepting the visual as whatever it is supposed to be. Like props. No one has an issue with "props" in film, do they?"

Jones's upcoming movie is based on the popular video game series, and will centre on the war between the Alliance and Horde factions.

The best CGI has you forgetting its CGI, and accepting the visual as whatever it is supposed to be.

Marvel's Agent Carter VFX Breakdown

18 February 2015 2:25 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It's 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert Ssr (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – a.k.a. Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, "Captain America: The First Avenger”) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy -- the only person he can trust -- to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, »

Agent Carter, Ep. 1.07, “Snafu”: Penultimate episode stalls season’s momentum

17 February 2015 9:41 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Agent Carter, Season 1, Episode 7, “Snafu”

Written by Chris Dingess

Directed by Vincent Misiano

Airs at 9pm (Et) on Tuesdays on ABC

The penultimate episode of Agent Carter’s debut season spends a lot of time running in place, moving the pieces around to make sure everyone is in position for what is sure to be an action-packed finale. While some of this is surely necessary, like the slow reveal of Dottie and Ivchenko’s plan or the redemption of Peggy Carter in the eyes of the Ssr, this episode does more to stall the second half of the season’s momentum than it does to build excitement for the final installment. This is a glorified bottle episode with only a few scenes taking place outside the Ssr office, a money saving tactic presumably applied here to allow for a more explosive episode next week, and all of the emotional beats »
