"You're not going to stir things up again, are you?" Good Deed Entertainment has launched a theatrical trailer for the upcoming release of the film Loving Vincent, the very special hand-painted film telling the story of famed Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. We've already featured a few trailers for this last year, but with a release date set for September they're finally giving this a stronger marketing push. The voice cast includes Aidan Turner, Saoirse Ronan, Eleanor Tomlinson, Helen McCrory, Chris O'Dowd and Douglas Booth. To top it off, the film features a score by the one-and-only Clint Mansell. I really love this animation, it's so unique and I'm still totally impressed they actually hand painted every single frame individually (behind-the-scenes here). I hope the film is as beautiful as the paintings. Can't wait to see this. Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman's Loving Vincent, »

A new batch of Agatha Christie whodunits is coming to Amazon, which inked a deal for exclusive U.S. streaming rights to a series of adaptations from the British mystery maven’s estate.
Under the deal brokered by Wme-Img, Agatha Christie Ltd. continues its partnership with U.K. production company Mammoth Screen. In April, Img reached a deal with Agatha Christie Ltd. to handle international sales for the slate of seven new dramas.

“We are thrilled to bring to our slate these adaptations from the world’s greatest mystery writer,” said Morgan Wandell, Amazon Studios’ head of international series. “With terrific talent, in front of and behind the camera, they are sure to delight our customers.”

Deadline is reporting that Bill Nighy, Catherine Keener and Matthew Goode have signed on to lead the cast of Ordeal By Innocence, a three-part adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel, which is the first of seven dramas as part of a deal between BBC One and Agatha Christie Productions.
The 1958 book, said to be one of Christie’s personal favourites, “begins with the murder of wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll at her family estate, Sunny Point. Despite vehemently protesting his innocence, her adopted son Jack is arrested for the crime. Eighteen months later, Dr Arthur Calgary appears claiming to hold the alibi that can prove Jack’s innocence. But Jack died in prison before the case could come to trial, and the Argyll family is reluctant to dig up the secrets of the past. However, the shattering implications of Calgary’s story are too big to avoid: If Jack was not the killer, »

BBC says third series of Cornish drama starring Aidan Turner will air in June after rival shows went head to head last year
Period dramas Poldark and Victoria will not go head to head this year after the BBC confirmed that the new series of its epic adaption of Winston Graham’s novels will air in June rather than the autumn.
Some viewers were not amused last September when the BBC1 and ITV rivals clashed on Sunday nights, with even Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays Poldark’s wife Demelza, saying afterwards that it was “a real shame” as it “split the audience”.
