10 Movie Holidays Which Went Horribly Wrong

28 July 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Roadshow Entertainment

Summer is here to stay, and what better way to celebrate than to pack up your tent and supplies or maybe a suitcase and head off on holiday for a week or two, escaping the daily routine of a mundane life, if only for a short while.

While in real life nobody likes it when their holiday goes horribly wrong, at least when it does it’s usually not the end of the world – bad service and inclement weather might be the worst case scenarios we could face. When it comes to the movies, such petty complaints would hardly make for entertaining viewing – we prefer disastrous holidays to crumble in more spectacular style, safe in the knowledge that when we pack up and head off ourselves we’re unlikely to be subjected to the same ordeals.

Here are 10 movie holidays which went horribly wrong, timely reminders that the »

25 July 2014 6:14 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Kill List" and "Sightseers" director Ben Wheatley's feature-length episode of "Doctor Who" is getting a worldwide theatrical run that will follow the same formula they used with last year's 50th anniversary episode.

The BBC has announced that the upcoming "Deep Breath," the 75-minute season premiere that introduces Peter Capaldi's new take on The Doctor, will score a worldwide day-and-date theatrical release on the same day as its TV premiere - August 23rd.

The episode sees the still recovering Doctor and Clara arriving in Victorian London where they seek refuge with Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax. As Clara deals with the fact The Doctor may not be the man she knew any longer, a dinosaur loose on the streets of London hints at a dark secret that lies beneath the city. Something has been slowly rebuilding itself, something not human, and the only way to escape its clutches »

What does 'back to basics' mean for Doctor Who?

17 July 2014 3:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andrew examines what it really means for Capaldi era Doctor Who to be described as going 'back to basics'...

Feature

“It seems to me the episodes that we're doing now seem more like classic Who. We're going back to that style.”

So says Ben Wheatley in an interview with io9. The Capaldi era is being styled as a 'Back to Basics' approach (those words being used by Capaldi to describe his costume), with the Radio Times reporting 'a clean slate' of storylines for series eight, and a Doctor who – in the words of Steven Moffat - “is not apologising, he's not flirting with you – that's over.”

Do you have salt ready? Take a pinch. What does 'Back to Basics' mean, anyway, for a show that's fifty years old and is built around regular upheaval? Is Capaldi going to kidnap some teachers in monochrome? Are there bases under siege? Shall we rip off Quatermass some more? »

Universal Monsters to be Relaunched by Alex Kurtzman, Chris Morgan

16 July 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the success Marvel is having with their movies and Disney about to release a Star Wars movie a year for the foreseeable future, a number of other studios are looking to follow that strategy. Sony is trying to do something similar with Spider-Man and it has been revealed that Universal is interested in relaunching their Universal Monsters.

According to Deadline, the plan is to develop new interconnected movies featuring Universal’s popular monsters that will take place in the same cinematic world. In charge of setting up this new world is Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers) and Chris Moran (Fast & Furious series).

Dracula Untold will not likely be part of this plan, but the movie’s box office success will probably be the deciding factor. First up should be the planned reboot of The Mummy, which is slated for a 2016 release. It’s unknown how involved Kurtzman and Moran »

The Mimic series 2 episodes 1 & 2 review

15 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jake checks out the new series of The Mimic, a Channel 4 comedy starring the impersonation talents of Terry Mynott...

Review

The first series of The Mimic was a pleasant surprise. Most recent sitcoms had been targeted at the younger side of the typical 18-35 demographic. But The Mimic broke the trend by being a little more grown-up in its outlook.

Terry Mynott, last seen in celeb-parodying Very Important People, plays gifted yet unsuccessful Martin Hurdle, a lowly site maintenance worker who amuses himself and his friends with uncanny impressions of film and TV stars, finding out he has a teenage son. Living in the same house as his happy-go-lucky landlady Jean who herself goes through a string of unsuitable boyfriends, his world is shaken up further by the news that his son's mother has terminal cancer. The use of impressions for a narrative story rather than just a parody »

Sound on Sight: Top 10 Random “Sound” and “Sight” Movie Titles

14 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Let us play the “Name Game”, shall we? Since we all are part of the experience here at the entertainment website known as Sound on Sight maybe we should pay homage to our online destination by celebrating it in an unconventional manner? Specifically, we can recognize Sound on Sight by acknowledging movie names that contain the words “sound” and “sight” in their titles.

However you may perceive this experimentation as being rather gimmicky and silly please realize that this movie column is also a means to recognize a few movie titles that are unfamiliar or perhaps a first-time discovery to some of you out there that never heard some of these cinematic selections. There may be a couple of well-known films in the bunch but collectively the features being mentioned in Sound on Sight: Top 10 Random “Sound” and “Sight” Movie Titles are aptly presented based on the theme at hand. »

Full-Length Doctor Who Series 8 Trailer Reveals Peter Capaldi as the Regenerated Time Lord

13 July 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The BBC has unveiled the first Doctor Who series 8 trailer for the upcoming season, featuring actor Peter Capaldi (In the Loop) as the newly regenerated Doctor.  I’ve never seen an episode of the show in my life, but the fans seem to be quite passionate and no doubt this full-length trailer for the rebooted season will be rather exciting.  We get a tease of Capaldi’s iteration of the lead character, as well as flashes of some of the sci-fi creatures and situations that the Time Lord and his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) will face—including dinosaurs!  The first two episodes of this new season were directed by Kill List and Sightseers helmer Ben Wheatley.  Capaldi, of course, takes over the role from actor Matt Smith, while Steven Moffat continues to exude his superhuman abilities as the showrunner of both Doctor Who and Sherlock. Hit the jump to watch the new Doctor Who trailer. »

"Doctor Who" Premiere Rough Cut Leaks Online

13 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following an unprecedented leak of the scripts for the first five episodes of the new season, a Very rough version of the eighth season premiere episode of the BBC's "Doctor Who" has leaked online on file sharing networks.

Said leak is thought to be part of the same security breach that saw those scripts being posted online earlier this week from an unsecured server in the BBC Worldwide's new Latin America office in Miami.

This Ben Wheatley-directed 74-minute premiere entitled "Deep Breath" is unfinished, so the version appears to be very rough. Screen caps and reviews from those who have seen it confirm the rough cut is entirely in black and white (the final episode will be in color), boasts several water marks, temp credits and score, an unfinished sound mix and plenty of unfinished effects shots. A good shot for shot comparison between the screener copy and »
