'Downton Abbey' Is Back: A Preview and Review (Season Four Clips)

31 December 2013 10:04 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A guilty pleasure for many of us, frothy Brit soap opera "Downton Abbey" returns stateside January 5 on PBS (months after it's been seen by the lucky folks in the UK). (Spoiler Alert: don't read on if you are not up to date.) This is the series that left our jaws agape as it killed off at the end of Season Three not just one but two key characters. Young actor Dan Stevens ditched Matthew Crawley just after he was finally blessed with a newborn; Stevens wanted to move on with his career (he starred opposite Jessica Chastain in Broadway's "The Heiress" and in "The Fifth Estate" with more to come from directors Scott Frank and Tom McCarthy and a spot as Lancelot in "Night at the Museum 3"). This left show creator Julian Fellowes to pick up the pieces.  Front and center in Entertainment Weekly's annual winter TV preview issue is »

'Downton Abbey' kills off Matthew Crawley: Are you still mad?

25 December 2013 2:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Plenty of pop-culture stories from 2013 were fodder for public outrage. As the year comes to a close, Zap2it takes a look back at some of the biggest uproars and asks: U Still Mad?

On the Season 3 finale of "Downton Abbey," Matthew Crawley was quite suddenly killed off in the final frames after having been the focus of the estate's future -- and Lady Mary's affections -- for three seasons.

It came as a huge shock to viewers. Twitter was ablaze with tweets like:

"My heart is broken. I thought main characters only died in Game of Thrones.""Ours is a house of mourning. I can't believe Matthew is dead.""If Matthew is dead I absolutely refuse to watch the fourth season of Downton Abbey. I think I'm having a stress-induced stroke. "

That last tweet seemed to be a popular opinion online -- if Matthew is dead, I'm done with "Downton. »

Kate Winslet Names Son Bear, Gives Him Her Surname

22 December 2013 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kate Winslet named her newborn son Bear, and gave him her surname instead of that of her husband Ned Rocknroll.

Kate Winslet Names Son Bear

Winslet, 38, gave birth to Bear Winslet on Dec. 7 at NHS hospital in Sussex County in England after the couple announced that they were expecting in June. His name was just confirmed by the actress’ rep to E! News.

“They are all doing so well, they both absolutely adore him — and the name Bear,” a source close to the family told the UK’s The Sun.

Bear is Winslet’s third child and the first for Rocknroll, whom she married in December of last year. Her 13-year-old daughter Mia and 10-year-old son Joe have the surnames of their respective fathers – Winslet’s ex-husbands producer Jim Threapleton and director Sam Mendes.

It looks like we’ll have a clean sweep of reprises in the next Night At The Museum movie, as it has been confirmed that Ricky Gervais will be returning to the franchise.

'Downton Abbey': Julian Fellowes on how his boarding school escape led to Grantham

11 December 2013 2:15 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The Countess of Grantham would not have been amused.

Maggie Smith's arch character on PBS' runaway hit "Downton Abbey" may be benevolent to her servants, but sitting next to them for an evening? Really? One eyebrow would undoubtedly be arched.

Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael, who play Lord Grantham and his daughters Ladies Mary and Edith, were in Manhattan's Hudson Theatre Tuesday (Dec. 10) night. 

After a screening of the first episode of Season 4, premiering on PBS Sunday Jan. 5, they joined Rob James-Collier, Phyllis Logan, and Lesley Nicol, who play servants Thomas, Mrs. Hughes and Mrs. Patmore. Allen Leech who plays Tom Branson, a driver who married into the family, and never feels quite right in either world, evidenced much more in Season 4, sat with them.

Showrunner Gareth Neame and creator Julian Fellowes also answered questions from moderator Bill Carter of The New York Times and took audience questions. »

'Downton Abbey's' Michelle Dockery: Liam Neeson sent my mom a birthday kazoo

11 December 2013 6:56 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday (Dec. 10), where she played a delightful game of antler ring toss with Fallon (video below) and also dished a few details on the upcoming fourth season of the British period drama.

When Fallon jokes that she should just move to the U.S., Dockery says, "I love it here. ... I should just do exactly what Dan did and just move here. Dan Stevens, that's what he's done."

Fallon responds, "We can't even talk about that, we can't even talk about Dan. We can't even talk about Matthew and what happened to Matthew. That was a shocker, it killed everybody."

Which is exactly what's happening on Season 4 of "Downton," says Dockery.

"Mary's grieving, obviously, for her dead husband. It takes her a bit of time to move on, but eventually she does. She's single and" -- "Ready to mingle, »

Michelle Dockery: ‘I Was Sad’ When Dan Stevens Left ‘Downton Abbey’

10 December 2013 10:53 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

The star of ‘Downton Abbey’ gets candid about her on-screen husband’s decision to leave after three seasons.

So much of Downton Abbey‘s fourth season — which premieres stateside Jan. 5 on PBS — is about Mary (Michelle Dockery) moving on after the death of Matthew (Dan Stevens), a process close to the cast’s heart. “I was sad … that Dan wanted to go,” Michelle said Dec. 10 during her visit to The View. ”We were all sad. … I thought, ‘What is going to happen now? So much [of the show] is about the relationship between [Matthew] and Mary.”

But don’t expect to hear a negative word about Dan from Michelle’s lips — or any cast member’s lips for that matter. They all understood why he decided to leave the popular British period drama, and they hold no grudges.

“We all had a choice to sign up for another series,” Michelle explained to the women, »

'Downton Abbey' cast talks Season 4 life after Matthew on 'Gma'

10 December 2013 9:30 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Downton Abbey" is finally close to premiering on PBS, and the cast and Julian Fellowes stopped by "Good Morning America" to discuss what fans can expect of the new season.

For those of you who didn't peek ahead when the show aired in the UK, it's no spoiler to know that the beginning of Season 4 is going to focus largely on Mary getting over the untimely death of Matthew. It's a death that fans didn't receive happily. Fellowes says he was shocked by how angry they were despite it being common knowledge that most British actors are only signed for three seasons.

"I'm afraid if they're never going to come back, it's the grim reaper. There's no other answer," Fellows says on "Gma." "I'm afraid he had to breathe his last. We're very sorry, but that was the way it had to be."

That means Mary is not going to »

Check Out Three New Images From Adam Wingard And Simon Barrett’s The Guest

5 December 2013 4:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Here at We Got This Covered, we’re big fans of Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, the talented director-writer pair behind A Horrible Way to Die, both V/H/S horror anthologies and this past summer’s frightfest You’re Next. Now, the duo are gearing up for their next collaboration, an action-thriller called The Guest.

Three action-packed images from the upcoming film have landed online today, promising gunfights, breakneck chases and a picturesque small-town setting. Though the pics, which you can check out at the bottom of this article, don’t reveal much about The Guest‘s plot, they do suggest a pretty intense thriller.

The Guest was recently announced as one of the eight Park City at Midnight films premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The official synopsis reads as follows:

5 December 2013 4:49 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

You may have noticed Uncle Creepy posting lots of imagery from films playing at Sundance 2014 earlier today, and now we have the full announcement of which horror projects are included in the Spotlight and Park City at Midnight lineups.

As mentioned when posting the first wave of films screening this year, it's sometimes difficult to tell exactly what's horror-related, so below are our best guesses of what we'll be covering from this latest batch or are films that sound just fringey enough that we'll be keeping our eyes on them:

Spotlight

Blue Ruin / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Jeremy Saulnier) — A mysterious outsider’s quiet life turns upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving to be an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. Cast: Macon Blair, Amy Hargreaves, Sidné Anderson, Devin Ratray, »
