Back in October, it was revealed by The Maze Runner director Wes Ball that the final installment of the franchise, The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, will not be split into two movies, a technique employed by a number of young adult franchises such as Twilight and The Hunger Games. Today, Erc Box Office is reporting that 20th Century Fox has handed out a February 17, 2017 release date for The Maze Runner: The Death Cure, confirming that it will not be split into two movies. This final installment of The Maze Runner franchise currently has the February 17, 2017 release date all to itself, but it will debut just one week after 20th Century Fox's The Mountain Between Us hits theaters on February 10, 2017.
Not long ago British actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster tried to buy a pint in a pub. He was visiting Canada for work and in order to finalise a visa he’d handed in his passport. So no ID when bar staff asked for it. The 24-year-old is impeccably beardless, pale, and looks – tops – 17. “For the first time in my life I got out my phone,” says Brodie-Sangster, “and looked myself up on IMDb.” See, he told staff, he was the cute orphan in Love, Actually. The boy-mystic in seasons three and four of Game of Thrones. He was born in 1990! “They laughed,” he recalls, “and even got me to sign my autograph. But they wouldn’t serve me that pint.”
Brodie-Sangster makes an interesting choice for casting directors. With that youthfulness he can »

It's always a big risk tinkering with a much-loved classic - particularly something that was a big part of people's childhoods - but the creative forces behind Thunderbirds Are Go! have promised that this 2015 revamp of the '60s Supermarionation series retains all that made the original so great.
Indeed, die-hard fans will be happy to hear that a good deal remains unchanged - from the off, Peter Dyneley's stirring countdown-to-launch and the subsequent swell of that classic theme tune deliver a rush of glorious nostalgia.
But it's also more than a mere nostalgia trip, with enough changes put into place to ensure that the show works as colourful, engaging fodder for the 6-11 year-olds of today.
As befits a modern series, and one intended primarily for children, the pace is utterly relentless throughout - a lack of incident is certainly not a problem that Thunderbirds Are Go! suffers from. »
5, 4, 3, 2, 1...
Over the years, there have been several - mostly unsuccessful - attempts to bring back Thunderbirds.
However, where others failed, Thunderbirds Are Go! looks set to succeed.
Debuting 50 years after the original series first aired, Digital Spy sat down with the cast to talk comparisons to 24, why the show is "the opposite of naff" - and why fans of the original will be happy to see this incarnation of International Rescue back at work.
Lady Penelope - Rosamund Pike
"It was an easy 'yes' as soon as ITV asked me to voice Lady Penelope. It was a huge compliment and I knew it would be a very exciting adventure.
"Exploring the scenes with David Graham has been an absolute delight. The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny. I love working with him, and the bond between Parker and Penelope and the humour that is batted between them is really fun to play. »

Ridge said that while it would appeal to a modern audience, many of the original elements would be retained.
He said: "We had no intention of messing with what already worked.
"It's a classic for a reason - it's a show that has a lot of cultural relevance for a lot of people, and so the decisions and changes we have made were not entered into lightly.
"Equally though, the series needs to appeal to a new modern audience, so whilst the iconic characters… music and story elements are largely retained, they are realised with production values that deliver an even greater dynamic and emotional experience for today's audience."
Ridge also spoke about some of the new vehicles that would appear on the show, before saying that the characters' heroism held the key to its appeal. »
The new voice cast of ITV's Thunderbirds Are Go!, starting on Saturday the 4th of April, tell us about the updated version of the show...
Returning to the small screen, just in time for its 50th anniversary, is the much-loved television series, Thunderbirds. Under the moniker of Thunderbirds Are Go!, the puppets have been replaced by computer-generated realisations of the original characters but the model and standing sets remain - courtesy of Weta in New Zealand (The Lord Of The Rings).
Den of Geek sat down with the voice cast who were all very enthusiastic and excited to see their work finally hit screens across the world. Taking part in the interviews were: Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game Of Thrones) who plays John Tracy; Rasmus Hardiker (Lead Balloon, Black Mirror), Alan and Scott Tracy; David Menkin, Virgil and Gordon Tracy; Sandra Dickinson (The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy), Grandma Tracy; Angel Coulby »
So much to love in this Brit kiddie sci-fi adventure, with its brilliant concept that really works on a small budget and a real sense of place. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big ol’ sci-fi geek
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
So much to love in this Brit kiddie sci-fi adventure! It’s like classic Doctor Who — you know, like we haven’t gotten much of lately — except without the Doctor, of course. It’s a Ya postapocalyptic adventure not based on a book (it’s an original story). It’s set after the alien invasion, which is when, I’ve always felt, all the really interesting stories exist to be told and yet we haven’t seen many of them. And the AI ETs aren’t here for the water.
