The Killing returned for a fourth and final season on Netflix today with its greatest asset, its creepy-beautiful atmosphere, intact. Adapted from the superior Danish original by Veena Sud, this onetime AMC drama might feel like a classic if you projected it without sound on a large wall on the back room of a nightclub, where the show's voluptuously beautiful shots of misty mountains, rain-slicked streets, and characters traversing endless hallways could merge in the mind with a synthesized backbeat and whatever cocktails the place serves (probably something rain-themed). As is, The Killing has the same problems as always: a gravely solemn, we-are-reinventing-the-genre swagger that doesn't sync up with the stereotype-driven, sub-Special Victims Unit procedural you're actually watching; a fondness for red herrings and mistaken assumptions that make the two lead cops, Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), look like total dipsticks; pacing and emphasis problems »

Will six episodes be enough to repair one of TV's most complicated relationships? The Killing's resurrection is just days away, with all six episodes of the fourth and final season available to Netflix users on Friday, and we're seriously concerned over Holder and Linden's fractured partnership. The seriously intense trailer hinted at the divide between the partners, and now we've got exclusive intel from stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos and executive producer Veena Sud on the new season and the "complicated" relationship between Linden and Holder after the shocking events of the season-three finale... "There's this break of trust between them. They have to »
A little more than a year after its third season finale on AMC, Netflix will drop the entire six-episode final season of “The Killing” on Friday, Aug. 1. The streaming service released a clip that picks up the action shortly after that shocking season finale that was temporarily a series finale after AMC cancelled the show for a second time. Netflix swooped in and picked the drama up for a fourth and final season, giving Veena Sud and her team six episodes to wrap up the character arcs of Mireille Enos‘ Sarah Linden and Joel Kinnaman‘s Stephen Holder.

Ahead of the August 1st premiere of the fourth and final season of The Killing, Netflix has released a preview clip and two new posters from the series to accompany the previously released previously released trailer. The Seattle-based crime drama centers on homicide detectives Sarah Linden and Stephan Holder, played respectively by Mireille Enos (World War Z) and Joel Kinnaman (the RoboCop reboot).
The video picks up directly after the events of season 3’s finale. A panicked Linden hurriedly sheds her pants and trademark sweater before stepping into a shower and letting blood and mud wash from her body and down the drain. After scrubbing the bathroom with bleach and packing the incriminating articles in a Hefty bag, the beleaguered detective burns them in a trashcan.
And then Holder arrives and says: “We’ve just ...

A new trailer has been released for what may be the thriller's final season and it looks as if Linden and Holder have something to hide
The Killing is back for a fourth (and final) season on Netflix on 1 August (although given the remake's track record of being cancelled and revived, who can really be sure this six-episode run will be the end?). The first trailer suggests that it's Linden and Holder who have been doing the killing this time. Just got to keep our story straight, Linden. No one's going to find out. You got rid of the gun, right? growls Holder (Joel Kinnaman) to his long-suffering partner (Mireille Enos).

“The Killing” didn’t necessarily deserve an ending after its third-season cliffhanger, but the one-time AMC series — which went from sensation to scorned in near-record time — needed one. Recognizing a property with binge potential and name recognition, Netflix has obliged, punching up a six-episode final season that reunites the central characters and picks up pretty much where they left off — with baggage that spills over into, and largely eclipses, a new, fairly uninspired case. Despite flashes of what initially made the Danish adaptation so intriguing, this stretch drive can’t escape the feeling of a show ready to be put out of its misery.
The dense mood and mystery won the skein a rabid following, only to squander much of that goodwill when the first season didn’t wrap up the opening investigation. The second arc dragged, and a third — under a shared arrangement with Netflix — embarked on a new »

In one of this year’s biggest and most shocking celebrity breakups (sorry, Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman, you’ve been upstaged), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright departed Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man after eight years in development. The split left many fans who had been eagerly awaiting the movie understandably confused, since Wright’s talent for mixing action with humor seemed like a perfect fit for the Marvel family.
Ant-Man is now back in track with Peyton Reed (Yes Man) signed on as the new director, but in the absence of precise details regarding Wright’s departure there has been a flurry of speculation as to what went wrong, particularly in light of the fact that Wright isn’t the ...

Reader reports, audience reviews… meh. Sure you can keep tabs on that “coverage,” but posting about that stuff specifically can be hurtful or irresponsible to a film if the “reviews” are early and especially if they’re negative (hell, on the Internet they’re pretty easy to fabricate in either direction too). Finding out “early buzz” on a movie through test screenings isn’t hard if you’re looking for it. So that said, we’d been hearing a few whispers about “Child 44” and perhaps today’s news jibes with it. It's got a strong pedigree around it: it's directed by Daniel Espinosa ("Easy Money" and "Safe House") and it stars Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Jason Clarke of “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes,” Paddy Considine and Dev Patel one of the stars of “Slumdog Millionaire.” That’s a pretty fantastic cast in anyone’s book, »

London — Entertainment One is well-placed to retain its position as the U.K.’s top independent distributor after a strong first half of the year, and a muscular slate for the remaining months. But, as Alex Hamilton, managing director, eOne Films U.K., tells Variety, the company has aspirations to be considered on a par with the Hollywood majors.
EOne has been the top indie in the U.K. for three of the past four years, and last year finished ahead of two studios, Sony and Paramount, with its box office totaling more than £100 million ($171 million) for the first time.

Summit announced last night Child 44, the new film from Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Vincent Cassel, will hit theaters on April 17, 2015. Hope you weren't counting on it being a major Oscar contender. Mark Neveldine (Crank) has revealed his new film, The Vatican Tapes will hit theaters on February 27, 2015. Starring Michael Pena, Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, Kathleen Robertson and Olivia Dudley the horror film follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes, played by Dudley, an ordinary girl who begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close to her, causing serious injury and death. The local priest, Father Lozano (Pena), examines Holmes and believes she is possessed, but when Vicar Imani (Hounsou) and Cardinal Bruun (Andersson) are called from the Vatican to exorcise the demon, it proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined. »

Anyone who read and enjoyed Tom Rob Smith’s period thriller novel Child 44, set in Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union, was likely thrilled when Locke star Tom Hardy landed the lead role of disgraced Mgb agent Leo Demidov, who investigates a long string of grisly child murders. Physically, it was pretty damn perfect casting, and it also fueled fans’ hopes that director Daniel Espinosa wouldn’t be toning down the book’s violent, disturbing content. After all, Hardy has built his career playing complex, disturbed individuals (see his stellar work in Bronson).
Now, we finally know when we’ll find out whether Hardy nailed the role – and more importantly, whether the other main storytelling strengths of Child 44 have survived the trip to the big screen, as Summit has just set the thriller to open on April 17th, 2015.

What does it signify that Lionsgate and Summit are slotting director Daniel Espinosa's "Child 44" for spring release (April 17, 2015)? Given that Tom Hardy--probably the most exciting young actor working today--is not yet a guaranteed box office draw (see "Warriors," "Locke"), Lionsgate may have wanted to use the award season as a springboard for a complex World War II period thriller set in Stalinist Russia that is by no means a guaranteed commercial hit. (What is these days?) In the foreign-financed film, adapted by Richard Price from Tom Rob Smith's 2008 bestseller, Hardy plays hard-ass Mgb agent Leo Domidov, who's tough on traitors (one is played byJason Clarke), at least until he and his wife (Noomi Rapace) fall under suspicion by his boss (Vincent Cassel) and careerist colleague (Joel Kinnaman). Meanwhile Domidov convinces a reluctant rural cop (Gary Oldman) to help investigate an actual serial child killer--who is of no. »

Wow, if this were another kind of website, that headline would have made one juicy piece of celebrity gossip. No, The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy is not having a 44th child with Prometheus‘ Noomi Rapace. The two are, however, starring in Swedish director Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44, about a Russian secret police officer framed for treason in 1950.
The officer, played by Hardy, is sent to a remote outpost, where he uncovers a series of muders tied to a government conspiracy. The film also stars Joel Kinnaman (Robocop, The Killing), Gary Oldman and his Dawn of the Planet of the Apes co-star Jason Clarke, and Black Swan‘s Vincet Cassel.
According to Deadline, the film has been given an April 17, 2015 release date from 20th Century Fox. For those keeping track at home, that places it two weeks after Fast & Furious 7 and the same day as Paul Blart Mall »
