‘Mr. Robot’ coming to Amazon Prime in UK

2 October 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It has been announced that Mr. Robot , one of the most buzzworthy Us TV shows of the year, will launch exclusively for Amazon Prime members in the UK, Germany and Austria. All 10 episodes of the critically lauded series from Universal will be available to stream for Prime members from Friday 16th October 2015.

Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group played by Christian Slater (Nymphomaniac) recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.

Mr. Robot has been described as “The Social Network meets ‘Occupy Wall Street’” and »

Zurich: Mr Robot creator sees show as a 'long film'

28 September 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The saying that ‘TV is the new film’ hits close to home for Mr Robot creator and showrunner Sam Esmail.

Esmail recounted how he first thought of the project as a film, before turning it into the USA Network’s summer hit.

The story follows paranoid young man Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek) who works as an engineer at a cybersecurity company. Christian Slater plays an anarchist hacker-activist named Mr Robot.

“As far as I’m concerned we are making the movie version, it just happens to be on streaming and television,” Esmail responded to Screen at a Zurich Film Festival press conference.

“I don’t see the difference. Films are two hours long, and TV shows can go on for 20 or 30 hours or more, that affects your storytelling. But if [either format] is right for your story, I don’t see any difference.

“I originally intended [Mr Robot] to be a film, I’m not shooting it any differently. We’re executing »

25 September 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

After landing exclusive streaming rights to Sex and the City, Amazon has closed its next streaming deal. The ecommerce giant and video subscription service has obtained exclusive Svod rights to the USA Network cyber-drama series Mr. Robot.

Amazon Prime to show Mr Robot in the UK

25 September 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The acclaimed hacker drama starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater will show on the streaming service from 16 October

Amazon Prime have bagged the rights to one of the year’s unexpected highlights. USA Network (home to Suits and Burn Notice) aired Mr Robot earlier this year and found themselves with a cult hit on their hands, one of those shows that is far better than its slightly hokey premise: maladjusted hacker taking on The Man.

Mr. Robot: Amazon Prime picks up UK distribution rights

25 September 2015 12:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mr. Robot is coming to the UK (and other European countries)! It will stream on Amazon Prime from Friday the 16th of October…

Great news, this – the fantastic American hacker drama Mr. Robot is finally getting distribution in the UK.

Amazon Prime has nabbed the rights to the USA Network’s show, and will screen it online in Britain, Germany and Austria. Amazon Prime members in these countries will be able to stream the show from Friday the 16th of October.

Although anti-corporate protagonist Elliot Anderson (played marvellously by Rami Malek) wouldn’t be too keen on this big business support, we’re very excited for the show reach the UK via legal means.

The series - if you're unfamiliar - follows corporate tech security employee Elliot as he joins an underground hacking collective, who seek to take down the one percenters at the top of the world economy via computer wizardry. »

Playing a Hacker on Mr. Robot Is Totally Getting Into Rami Malek’s Head

17 September 2015 1:57 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Playing a paranoid hacker-genius gets into your head. “The more I’ve worked on this show, the more I refrain from getting on the computer or on my phone, because I realize just how fragile our information [is], and how susceptible it is to being compromised,” said Rami Malek, the star of USA’s summer breakout show Mr. Robot. Vulture ran into our summer crush on the red carpet at People magazine’s “Ones to Watch” party Wednesday night, which he attended with his co-stars Carly Chaikin and Portia Doubleday. Malek said with a laugh, “I cover up my webcam, and I’ve even started to cover up the microphone now because I think they are listening.”Apparently, his co-stars feel the same way. “I always leave my laptop open, and now it’s an Ocd thing that I have to close it all the time,” said Chaikin, who plays fellow FSociety member Darlene. »

‘Until Dawn’ – A Horror Fans (Re)View

8 September 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I’ve been gaming for years, for longer than I have been a horror fan in fact. From the ZX81 through the Acorn Electron, Commodore 64, Nes, Snes, Megadrive and beyond, and even back in the early days there were attempts to meld video games and movies. Be it cinematic style games like It Came From the Desert to the huge push into full motion video games like Mad Dog McCree. There have even been horror video games based on the likes of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, though both of those games never made it to UK shores because, back then, games were for “kids” only.

Of course we’ve had games like the Trilobyte-produced PC games The 7th Guest and 11th Hour, which captured the scares perfectly and then there’s the controversial Night Trap on the Mega CD – a game which was one of »

Is Mr. Robot the Best New Show of Recent Years?

6 September 2015 7:35 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The critically lauded Mr. Robot wrapped up its freshman season this past week. The USA Network show had major buzz, arguably becoming the most talked about and interesting new program to come along in at least a year. Is it the best show to come along since the 2014-2015 TV season began last fall? Cinelinx looks at Mr. Robot to evaluate whether or not it was the finest new series to premier, not only over the summer, but since last September’s TV lineup debuted.

The very existence of Mr. Robot is amazing in more ways than one. Firstly, it’s a surprise that Mr. Robot was picked up by the USA Network—a network known for light, often formulaic shows—and also that they had so much faith in it, they renewed it for a second year before the first episode even aired. It’s a pleasure as a »

The Mr. Robot Finale Post-Credits Scene You Might've Missed Will Blow Your Mind

3 September 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mr. Robot's finale was totally setting up for the already ordered second season, but there was probably a moment you missed that will blow your mind. Yes, the first season of Mr. Robot technically ended with Elliot (Rami Malek) alone in his apartment after sort of coming to terms with the fact he'll keep seeing his dead dad (Christian Slater), little self and mom, then he received a knock on his door. He got up and opened it. Boom. Credits rolled. But! After the credits, USA snuck in a little single-shot scene featuring Michael Cristofer's E Corp CEO Philip Price in an opulent mansion having a conversation with… the Whiterose?! Yes, that is B.D. Wong. Yes, when we first met Wong's character she »
