Having made a name for himself on Channel 4’s epic teen drama Skins it was only a matter of time before the film world took notice of Jack O’Connell’. One of his earlier film roles was as the king of the killer chavs in Eden Lake. A film which had O’Connell and his friends stalk middle-class Michael Fassbender and his wife as they went on a relaxing camping trip. Since then O’Connell has graced our screens in a variety of genres with last year (2014 in case you’ve forgotten already) featuring many chances to see Jack on the big screen as he starred in 300: Rise Of An Empire, Starred Up, ’71 and Unbroken.
We recently interviewed Jack O’Connell about his Ee Rising Star BAFTA nomination and the young actor seemed to be taking it all in his stride, apparently happy to speak to a fellow Midlander. »

Apparently, blood baths are in.
First, American Horror Story: Freak Show had Dandy take a dip in a tub full of gore. Now, in Penny Dreadful’s Season 2 trailer, Showtime’s monster mash has its new Big Bad, Madame Kali (Helen McCrory), enjoying a crimson soak, as well.
In addition, the teaser hints at an inevitable showdown between the villainess and our tortured heroine, Vanessa (Eva Green). “When Lucifer fell,” the latter intones, “he did not fall alone.” But the biggest shock in the preview is arguably the sight of Miss Ives in the arms of neither Dorian nor Ethan »

Tim Burton is perhaps one of the most unique and exciting filmmakers working today. With a vision inspired by classic horror and a dry wit, his films are often fiercely entertaining and endlessly clever. Of course, that’s not to say that there aren’t dark spots on his filmography. Like every filmmaker he’s had his missteps but even when the movies don’t quite work Burton manages to create films that are visually stunning and artistic. With the recent release of Big Eyes and a possible sequel to Beetlejuice in the works, examining Burton’s work and influence is more important than ever.
17. Planet of the Apes (2001): Even when a Burton film has issues there are usually some redeeming factors (see Darks Shadows’ amazing style) but, oh man, one really has to look hard to find something good in this disaster of a movie. Sure, the makeup »

There's a new trailer for season two of Showtime's Penny Dreadful, which you can see below.
An erotically-charged, profoundly unsettling new saga, Penny Dreadful completely reinvents literature's most iconic and terrifying characters. Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul -- even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations.

"When Lucifer fell, he did not fall alone."
Those chilling words close out the new trailer for season 2 of Showtime's "Penny Dreadful." They're preceded by equally spine-tingling images, of Eva Green's Vanessa Ives wandering desolate moors and breathing heavily as she stares, horrified, at some oncoming danger.
But the most striking image is of Helen McCrory's Madame Kali aka Evelyn Poole, this year's big bad. She's lounging in a bathtub filled with blood - how very Countess Elizabeth Bathory of her.
"Penny Dreadful" returns April 26 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
