Inside No. 9 series 2 episode 6 review: The Seance

29 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We close the curtain on Inside No. 9's second series pick n’ mix of twisted delights with a scary setting for the finale...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 The Seance

Looking suspiciously similar to series 1’s closer The Harrowing, Seance Time opened with a big creepy house on a suburban road, a young female Pov character walking into the building with hesitation, and some really dated interior décor. If you’re a devoted viewer of the show, this might have made you feel right at home; you may have found the house, and genre, familiar. The last episode of this run of Inside No. 9 was a return to juicy horror for the series, but any similarities to what’s gone before were just a starting point for a tale that switched from familiar horror set-ups to a look behind the curtain/camera, before turning right back around to something unsettling for a last spine-jolter. »

Universal Is Delaying A Ton Of Its Anticipated Titles For Some Reason

24 April 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios continue expanding their shared cinematic worlds, Universal is pushing back theirs. Following the release date announcements for Fast and Furious 8 and the two Fifty Shades of Grey sequels, the studio has rescheduled the start of its monster movie-verse by nine months and pushed back a few other titles.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal has changed the release date for its reboot of The Mummy from June 24, 2016 to March 24, 2017. This is supposed to further the shared universe of monster films, which reportedly includes Luke EvansDracula Untold. However, this move is out of the ordinary for the studio, considering its desire to focus on developing these properties. This move also means that another untitled monster movie project, originally scheduled for April 21, 2017, will now open on March 30, 2018.  This news comes shortly after similar announcements for Universal and Legendary’s Pacific Rim 2 »

Stanley Tucci Joins 'Beauty and the Beast' as a New Character

23 April 2015 6:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The already insanely star-studded cast of Disney's upcoming live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast" just added another big name: Stanley Tucci.

Variety reports that the "Hunger Games" star just signed on for the flick, and will be playing a role created specifically for the new version. The character is named Cadenza, and is described by Variety as a "grand piano, a new character to the realm who is described as a neurotic maestro."

Tucci's casting should round out the ensemble, which just added Ewan McGregor earlier this week. "Beauty" stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, Josh Gad, Audra McDonald, and Kevin Kline.

Production is scheduled to start later this year. "Beauty and the Beast" is due in theaters on March 17, 2017.

Ewan McGregor To Light Up ‘Beauty And The Beast’ As Lumiere

23 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ewan McGregor, maybe better known as a young Obi Wan Kenobi, is reportedly in the final stages of signing on to join the live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast.

McGregor will play Lumiere, the confident, show-stealing maitre d’/candelabra, who gets his own solo in catchy tune Be Our Guest. Ewan is no stranger to singing, having blown minds in the 2001 musical drama Moulin Rouge.

It’s not like Beauty And The Beast needs much more star power. If a deal is made he’ll be featuring alongside Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (Beast/Prince), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette) and Adrian Schiller (Monsieur D’Arque). Now that’s a cast!

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Blu-ray Review

22 April 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Peter Jackson

Starring: Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Lee Pace, Cate Blanchett, Christopher Lee

Running Time: 144 Minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Recruiting the Five Armies, Completing Middle Earth, ‘The Last Goodbye’ Music Video, New Zealand: Home of Middle Earth Part 3.

When it was originally announced The Hobbit would be divided into three films, I wasn’t sure why it was necessary and after a long year wait for the finale since the vivacious Smaug outing, we head into The Battle Of The Five Armies and on reflection… I feel despondently justified.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is not a bad movie but after the epic build-up in The Desolation Of Smaug, we’re thrown bang in the middle of the action and, for me, it doesn’t work very well. It’s not that the spectacle isn’t glorious but »

Disney’s Live-Action Beauty And The Beast Adds Hunger Games Star Stanley Tucci

22 April 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the majority of leading parts already filled, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Disney had all but finished casting duties on its upcoming live-action retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Yesterday brought news that Ewan McGregor was in negotiations to play Lumiere, meaning that the Scottish actor would join an ensemble cast that consists of Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, and Luke Evans, not to mention Dan Stevens and Emma Watson as the titular, besotted duo.

However, Variety brings word that there is still space for The Hunger Games star Stanley Tucci, who has reportedly signed on a new character known as Cadenza, the grand piano in Bill Condon’s modern rendition. Aside from that not, not much was disclosed about the nature of this novel addition, though Variety’s report claims Cadenza is a neurotic maestro — not unlike Tucci’s Caesar Flickerman, then.

Speaking of which, the actor »

Ewan McGregor In Final Talks For Disney’s Beauty And The Beast

21 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ewan McGregor is the latest in a long line of A-list talent set to join Disney’s star-studded Beauty And The Beast adaptation. The live-action riff on the studio’s 1991 animated smash kicked off production last week, so it stands to reason that the final casting announcements would begin to surface.

Per THR, McGregor is now in the last stages of sealing a deal to play Lumiere. It’s not described as a leading role – as they’ve all been secured – but it is a major supporting turn. Those of you desperate for more of McGregor’s sonorous delights, as witnessed in Moulin Rouge, should still find plenty to be happy about here. Lumiere is in the Prince’s employ as his head maitre d’, who is struck by the curse which befalls the Prince’s abode and transformed into a candelabra. He is set to perform as part of »
