Orphan Black Renewed for Season 3; Broadchurch Season 2 Set for Early 2015 Debut

9 July 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Orphan Black season 3 is a “go”, people.  There was little doubt that the wildly entertaining sci-fi series would be back for a third season, but BBC America has now made the pick-up official in addition to a few other announcements regarding the network's lineup.  The 10-episode third season will debut in 2015, with the incredibly talented Tatiana Maslany reprising her many roles in the clone-filled show.  If you're not familiar with the series, I highly suggest you make yourself acquainted.  It's great fun. Additionally, BBC America announced that Broadchurch season 2 will debut in early 2015.  Many have been curious to find out how the emotionally devastating series would continue in a second season, and while plot details are still tight, we know that David Tennant and Olivia Coleman are reprising their lead roles with Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy, and more playing new characters.  Fox also has its American remake, »

BBC America renews 'Orphan Black,' sets 'Broadchurch' return for 2015

9 July 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BBC America kicked off its Television Critics Association press tour panel on Wednesday (July 9) afternoon with a pair of unsurprising announcements: "Orphan Back" has been renewed for a third season and the second season of "Broadchurch" will air on BBC America.  Both seasons will air in 2015. BBC America boasts that the second "Orphan Black" season "became  the first ever ad-supported drama series to double its ratings from season one to season two in A25-54 and 18-49 in Live+7." The season two finale last month drew 1.376 million viewers in Live+7, a series high. The third "Orphan Black" season will, once again, be 10 episodes and it will, once again, feature Tatiana Maslany playing a wide array of characters. While the overall ratings for "Orphan Black" aren't especially impressive, even after a TCA Award and a Golden Globe nomination for Maslany, BBC America touted a string of interesting facts and figures that »

‘Orphan Black’ Renewed for Season 3

9 July 2014 3:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

BBC America has renewed its drama hit “Orphan Black” for a third season.

BBC America general manager Perry Simon confirmed the news — which was hardly a surprise — in his opening remarks Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

Lensing on 10 new episodes starring Tatiana Maslany in multiple roles is to begin again in the fall. The third season will bow on the cabler in spring 2015. The second season of “Broadchurch” will also hit the cabler in early 2015, Simon said.

The original “Broadchurch” mini, a grim mystery revolving around the murder of a boy, has been adapted by Fox as “Gracepoint,” which is expected to air in the fall.

The second round of “Broadchurch” will feature a new story but the return of actors David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan and Arthur Darvill will reprise their roles. Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, James D’Arcy, »

Review: Cuban Fury (Blu-ray)

17 June 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The dance culture has seen an explosion of cinematic adaptations in recent years. There was Step Up in 2006 -  the dan-com that launched the career of one Channing Tatum; MTV-funded urban success Save the Last Dance in 2001; and everyones favourite rags-to-Rojo story Billy Elliot in 2000. Going further back, classics such as Footloose (starring Kevin Bacon. Yes, believe it or not he used to appear in films), Dirty Dancing and Saturday Night Fever slide into shot, while one could even argue the suitability of Gene Kelly’s infamous musical number Singin' in the Rain...although for the purpose of this review, we’ll stick with dance as the main focus as opposed to an entertaining side-plot.

However, Cuban Fury is a beast like no other. While it may tap along to a similar beat, it’s underlying study is of a comical nature. Viewers are presented with 98 minutes of unadulterated ‘slapstick »

Cuban Fury Blu-Ray Review

10 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: James Griffiths

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 98 minutes

Special Features: Extensive hour-long Behind-the-Scenes Documentary, Outtakes, Deleted Scenes and More. 

Cuban Fury is based around an original idea from Nick Frost, which follows the life of 30-something Bruce Garrett (Frost) who was once a child prodigy at Salsa but lost his passion for the dance after a rather horrible incident with older kids who took a dislike to his style. After he’s basically bullied out of his love for Salsa, his life flips forward 25 years and he’s working for an engineering company and lost his vibrancy for life.

When new boss Julia Matthews (Rashida Jones) joins the company that Garrett works for, he accidentally finds out that she’s dancing salsa in her spare time and his fire is relit and he’s »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Nick Frost On Cuban Fury, His Career and More

10 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Ahead of the home entertainment release of Cuban Fury this week, HeyUGuys sat down with its star Nick Frost – who also came up with the idea for the film – about any memorable reactions, mementos from the set, improvised scenes and more…

The film has obviously been out for a while now. Has there been any reaction that has been particularly memorable?

I think people had lots and lots of Twitter traffic from people saying that dancing had broken out in screenings and people saying that there’d been a flash mob of salsa dancers! Is there a deeper meaning about aesthetic beauty in the film? Maybe, but essentially the film is about love and dancing. If even a thousand people came out of that cinema feeling happy, it’s a win.

In Cuban Fury, Bruce discovers what he wants to do with his life at a very early age. When »

DVD Review – Cuban Fury (2014)

9 June 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cuban Fury, 2014.

Directed by James Griffiths.

Starring Nick Frost, Chris O’Dowd, Rashida Jones, Ian McShane, Olivia Colman, Kayvan Novak and Rory Kinnear.

Synopsis:

Beneath Bruce Garrett’s under-confident, overweight exterior, the passionate heart of a salsa king lies dormant. Now, one woman is about to reignite his Latin fire.

Adequacy. Cuban Fury is not a bad film. Nick Frost is a charismatic lead, Rashida Jones is an entertaining presence  and Chris O’Dowd adds “something.” Exactly what that something is is debatable. Maybe it lies in his newfound ability to play uptight arsehole with a concerning sense of glee and accuracy. Ian McShane appears, as if patiently awaiting a cheque and Kayvan Novak doesn’t play a terrorist. All this culminates in what can only be described as truly adequate.

Nick Frost stars as Bruce, a one time Salsa champion whom upon meeting his new boss Julia (Rashida Jones »

The women taking over TV crime drama

3 June 2014 11:51 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Lindsay Denton, Robin Griffin, Catherine Cawood… modern TV crime drama is overflowing with great women characters…

Feature

“Granny’s been in a fight”.

That’s not something you often hear from young boys on TV, much less followed by a matter-of-fact, “she was chasing this scrote and he kicked her in the face”. “Did he get away?” the boastful grandson is asked. “Hell no”.

That exchange, from Happy Valley’s second episode, sums up a shift afoot in modern crime drama. Women in TV crime are no longer just the sexy sidekick, femme fatale, strangled prostitute or pert corpse on the slab - they’re the leads. Grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters; married, divorced, single; keen runners, pianists, swimmers, cat-owners… They’re not all cut from the same cloth, nor are they empty nods towards diversity or ‘find and replace’ stand ins for male characters. They’re women, flawed and heroic, »

‘Cuban Fury’ DVD Review

2 June 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Nick Frost, Rashida Jones, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Chris O’Dowd, Ian McShane, Olivia Colman, Alexandra Roach, Rory Kinnear, Kayvan Novak | Written by Jon Brown | Directed by James Griffiths

Tubby funster Nick Frost steps out as the lead in salsa-based rom-com Cuban Fury. Frost plays Bruce, a former teenage salsa dancing extraordinaire who dons his Cuban heels once more in order to woo his new boss Julie, played by the lovely Rashida Jones. Standing in Bruce’s way are unpleasant colleague Drew, a none-more sleazy Chris O’Dowd and his own paralysing neurosis and shattered confidence.

Despite coming from a very televisual background – its director, James Griffiths, is best known (insomuch as he is known at all) for his work on Episodes and its writer and most of its stars made their names in TV – Cuban Fury stands up as one of the better examples of a British rom-com in recent years. »
