Ripper Street series 3 episode 2 review: The Beating Of Her Wings

16 November 2014 11:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ripper Street series 3 continues to impress, its world feeling more cohesive and encompassing than ever before...

This review contains spoilers.

3.2 The Beating Of Her Wings

The Beating of Her Wings finds Drake and Reid investigating a murder of a woman in a Dickensian curiosity shop, forcing them to reunite with Jackson in order to progress the investigation. They discover that the now missing Horace Buckley (Charlie Creed-Miles), the victim's husband, was deeply in debt to Susan's business, Obsidian Estates, and had had a run in with the debt collectors earlier that day. As the policemen hunt down Buckley, Susan is left looking after Capshaw's discovery, the daughter of the Buckleys, locked in the basement and seemingly traumatised as a result.

One of the interesting things so far about this series of Ripper Street is how it has stripped away the major historical references to become something much more focused on »

Ripper Street returns: But is it worth an Amazon Prime subscription?

14 November 2014 8:32 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Of all the shows to save, Ripper Street was a curious pick from Amazon's streaming service, the not-so-catchily-titled Prime Instant Video.

The show's first series rated well on Sunday nights, but its blend of backstreet Victorian crime and bromantic adventure didn't cause much of a stir. After its second series got shunted in the schedules, viewers dropped and even fewer people seemed to be talking about the period drama.

When the BBC announced that it wouldn't be returning for a third run, the show still had enough loyal fans to orchestrate a well co-ordinated campaign to demand a comeback.

As a show it always felt solid rather than spectacular. Potentially great, but never quite consistently achieving it. However, while its axing was unfortunate, the timing of its demise turned out to be very handy.

Off the back of Netflix's huge success in original programming, Amazon Prime has struggled to compete »

Ripper Street: Cancellation, campaigns and a comeback

12 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

On Friday (November 14), Ripper Street will launch its third series on Amazon Prime Instant Video, after the streaming service partnered with the BBC and producers Tiger Aspect to resurrect the cancelled series.

The period thriller aired its first six episodes on BBC One in late 2012 / early 2013, attracting a peak audience of 7.9m, but a second series - shifted from Sundays to a Monday night slot and positioned opposite ITV's popular I'm a Celebrity - failed to replicate these numbers.

Nevertheless, when the BBC announced in December 2013 that a third run would not be going ahead, disappointed fans made their voices heard - via social media and via online appeals, with a leading petition attracting over 40,000 signatures.

Jerome Flynn, who plays troubled Bennet Drake, believes that what so inspired fans is "probably the same thing" that attracted him and his fellow cast-members to Ripper Street in the first place.

Global Showbiz Briefs: BFI & Aardman Animations Partner For Toon Features; Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason Toplines ‘The Serious Game'; More

3 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The British Film Institute is partnering with Aardman Animations are launching a new scheme backed by £1 million of lottery funding to help support the development and production of new animated feature films and the creative talent making them. The BFI will provide funding for up to two years to three filmmakers or filmmaker teams to develop their projects with dedicated development support through the BFI Aardman Animation Development Lab. The process for developing animated feature films is lengthy and expensive limiting the opportunities for British filmmakers. Wallace & Gromit producer Aardman will work with the filmmakers – animators, writers, directors, producers – to shape their ideas with the aim of emerging with a set of greenlight-ready materials for their films, ready to advance to production. The closing date for applications is November 28.

Ripper Street series 3 start date announced

3 October 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The new series of Ripper Street starts on Amazon Prime Instant Video with a double-bill on Friday the 14th of November at 9pm...

Following news earlier this year of the Amazon deal that saved Ripper Street from cancellation (a deal aided in no small way by the activity of fans not prepared to accept the series two finale as the last they'd see of D.I. Reid and co.), we now have release date details for the new series.

Instead of landing online in one great lump, series three of Ripper Street will be meted out weekly, following the broadcast pattern. New episodes will arrive on the streaming service every Friday at 9pm from the 14th of November until the 26th of December. A double-bill will kick-start the action and take fans back to Whitechapel.

The episodes will also air on the BBC in 2015, in an edited form that doesn't »

Tiff Exclusive: It's All Water Under The Bridge In Clip From Brit Crime Thriller 'Hyena' Starring Stephen Graham

27 August 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

London's seedy nightlife, grimy pubs, and various lowlifes have provided the British crime thriller genre no shortage of classics over the years. And looking to join the ranks of "Get Carter" and "The Long Good Friday" is Gerard Johnson's "Hyena," set to make its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. We have an exclusive clip that takes you inside the film's milieu. Starring Peter Ferdinando, Stephen Graham, Neil Maskell, Richard Dormer, Elisa Lasowski and MyAnna Buring, the story follows Logan, a crooked undercover cop who's pinned between the Turkish criminals he's betrayed, the Albanians he's now siding with, and an internal affairs investigation from his ostensible colleagues. All of this transpires while Logan tries to save a woman sold into sexual slavery. In this clip, you'll get a sense of the tension and atmosphere Johnson looks to bring to this film. "Hyena" will screen at Tiff in the Vanguard. »

Watch the First Stunning Slow-Mo Clip from Undercover Cop Thriller ‘Hyena’

26 August 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Writer-director Gerard Johnson’s sophomore feature, starring Peter Ferdinando as a corrupt London cop, is set to screen at Tiff next month, and the first stunning clip from the film has been released. According to THR, the pic owes a heavy debt to Gaspar Noe in one violent encounter; meanwhile Michael Mann and Nicolas Winding Refn duly pop up elsewhere in the palette. Tiff programmer Colin Geddes says director Johnson gives us a worthy UK cousin to Abel Ferrara’s Bad Lieutenant and The Guardian calls it an ambitiously scaled police-corruption thriller. Watch the clip below. The film also stars Stephen Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), MyAnna Buring (Downton Abbey), Neil Maskell (Wild Bill), Elisa Lasowski (Somers Town) and Richard Dormer (Good Vibrations). Watch the clip below.

Sarajevo: co-producing with the UK

22 August 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

UK industry representatives arrive in Sarajevo as part of CineLink Partner Country initiative

Sarajevo’s CineLink Partner Country Initiative has been running for more than a decade, systematically strengthening the working relationship between the Southeast European film industry and its international counterparts.

This year’s Partner Country is the UK, and a delegation of around 20 British producers, sales agents, distributors, agents and festival representatives will be present at CineLink for four intensive days of meeting regional film makers and promoting the possibilities of cooperation with the UK. 

As an introduction for the producers from Southeast Europe attending the festival, Isabel Davis, the head of international film fund at the BFI, held a presentation of its recently established minority co-production fund.

“The UK has had a good, long-standing relationship with this festival and this region, and it felt very timely to come here as a partner country,” Davis said.

Film Review: ‘Hyena’

18 June 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Any director who titles his film “Hyena” is setting himself up for critical wisecracks about creative scavenging — and true enough, Gerard Johnson’s ultraviolent crooked-cop thriller wears its plethora of genre influences, from Nicolas Winding Refn to “The Sweeney,” prominently on its sleeve. What “Hyena” lacks in invention, however, it makes up for in technical bravado and geographical specificity, its vivid West London milieu coloring a stock story of a corrupt narcotics detective (the excellent Peter Ferdinando) whose chickens come home most bloodily to roost. A punchy but distinctly downbeat curtain-raiser for this year’s Edinburgh fest, Johnson’s stylish sophomore feature reps a commercial challenge theatrically — too oblique for the exploitation crowd, too grimy for upscale auds — but should continue to attract strong-stomached admirers in ancillary.   

While frequently blunt in expression, Johnson’s script is never so literal as to directly articulate its title; the bottom-feeding metaphor is pretty »

Eiff 2014: Hyena Review

18 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Gerard Johnson

Starring: Peter Ferdinando, Stephen Graham, Neil Maskell, Elisa Lasowski, MyAnna Buring, Richard Dormer, Gordon Brown, Tony Pitts

Certificate: Tbc

Running Time: 112 minutes

Synopsis: Good policing doesn’t necessarily mean doing everything by the book. But as the business of crime in London turns to favour the Albanians and Turks, how does a “good” policeman survive?

Gerard Johnson’s Hyena opened the 2014 Edinburgh Film Festival tonight ahead of 12 days of a range of national and international premieres and feature films for festival-goers to enjoy. His previous feature Tony screened at the festival in 2009 to mixed reviews and his latest addition to the crime drama genre will not likely earn him many fans.

Eiff 2014: Hyena Review

18 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Opening to the coolest title card you’ll see all year, hopes are initially high that Gerard Johnson’s sophomore effort is on track to be a stylish British crime thriller. Drenched in blue (both neon and officers), soon after an early slo-mo drug bust set to The The’s eerie, pulsating electronic beats, it becomes clear this is not the case.

Detective Sergeant Michael Logan (Peter Ferdinando) has long been scratching the backs of drug traders, much to his financial advantage. But when one of his contacts is brutally murdered before his eyes, the rules change and Logan is no longer calling the shots. To add to the copper’s newfound paranoia, he also finds himself investigated for corruption as David Knight (Stephen Graham) turns up to run the show – and boy do this pair have history.

Considering Logan heads up the drugs squad, his team don’t appear »

Eiff 2014: ‘Hyena’ is a brutal example of British nihilism

18 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hyena

Written and directed by Gerard Johnson

UK, 2014

Hyena, the second feature from London-born director Gerard Johnson, opens with a slow motion raid on a neon-blue nightclub. The four men who carry it out are inebriated – a mixture of drink and drugs – and meet wordlessly en route in a small, plain car. When they park in an alleyway and pull on police gear, your first instinct is that they’re faking it, putting on masks. But it transpires that they really are policeman, just the kind that employ violence indiscriminately and abuse their authority to take a cut from local gangs. As one character later comments, you’d think policemen like them wouldn’t exist.

This opening sequence is filmed with a measured sense of detachment. The club is all light and movement; the blows, slowed down, don’t seem to connect, even as the bodies fly across the floor. »
