Downton Abbey: Everything we know about the ITV drama's final series and future plans

17 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The cast of Downton Abbey have kicked off filming for the final ever episode of the ITV drama that has taken the world by storm.

The sixth and final series of the period drama from Julian Fellowes will air in the autumn, so in the lead-up to our fond farewell to the Crawleys and the Granthams, here is a list of everything we know so far.

Downton Abbey: Why it had to end after its 6th series

When will the final episode air and be set?

There are no precise dates yet, but the final ever episode of Downton Abbey will be its Christmas special, so the likelihood is it will be broadcast on Christmas Day as with previous years.

The eight-part final series and its Christmas special will take place in 1925, the year of John Logie Baird's first TV with greyscale images and The Great Gatsby. The finale »

16 July 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On February 5th, manners will meet the macabre in Screen GemsPride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name. At Comic-Con last week, Daily Dead participated in roundtable interviews with the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies director and cast, who discussed the film's physicality, investable characters, formidable zombies, and much more.

Writer/director Burr Steers on his vision for the film:

Burr Steers: It was actually something I knew was out there because a lot of people had taken shots at trying to get it made. I looked at it and had a take on it that I was really confident would work. I went in there and rewrote it, and made it happen.

I saw it in my mind the way you'd approach a play. We'd set up this alternate world where there's a zombie pandemic that »

Watch: Pride And Prejudice And Zombie Cast Plays “Would You Rather”

14 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’ve been working on a brand new game to add to the rotation and got the opportunity to give it a go last week at San Diego Comic-Con. Welcome to the very first edition of Collider’s movie-themed “Would You Rather!” The goal is to have some fun, but a top priority of the game is also to give a little insight into how a filmmaker likes to work, his or her on-set preferences, etc. Shortly after the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Hall H panel, I got the opportunity to sit down with Matt Smith who plays Mr. Collins and Jack Huston who plays Wickham. Lily James leads the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book as Elizabeth Bennet. She’s basically the same Elizabeth Bennet featured in the original Jane Austen novel except for the fact that she and her four sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Comic-Con Interviews

12 July 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One movie we've heard very little about at Comic-Con is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The Jane Austen horror mashup did have a panel in Hall H midday, but the Seth Grahame-Smith adaptation was outshined by heavy hitters such as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Deadpool, Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. We're not sure what was shown, but no new trailer appeared in any official capacity to share. We're not empty handed, though. We did get get 6 interviews with the cast, including Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth and Matt Smith.

Earlier in the week, before Pride and Prejudice and Zombies could turn Hall H into a 19th Century blood bath, EW released 4 very sexy, very gory photos from the thriller. They proved that this generation was about to get a Jane Austen interpretation like non-other before it, with Seth Grahame-Smith's tome hitting the »

Comic-Con 2015: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Panel Report

11 July 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Of all the literary/horror mash-ups you can think of - Moby Dicknado, War And Peace And Piranhas, Lord Of The Flyblown - Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is the one that’s actually happening. That it’s an even more far-fetched conceit than anything you could possibly invent is a joy that was not lost on the Hall H throng. Comic-Con came to have its minds (and English text books) blown and the film’s cast and filmmakers did their best to oblige in a panel that showcased a chunky first trailer.In attendence were writer/ director Burr Steers, cast members Lily James (Elizabeth Bennet), Sam Riley (Mr. Riley), Bella Heathcote (Jane Bennet), Douglas Booth (Mr. Bingley), Jack Huston (Mr. Wickham) and Matt Smith (Mr. Collins), and the masher-upper-in-chief Seth Grahame-Smith.The movie’s set up is simple: after seven decades of zombies roaming 19th century England, cluttering up »

Jai Courtney ("Terminator Genisys," "Divergent") will star opposite Lily James and Christopher Plummer in the early WW2-set spy thriller "The Kaiser's Last Kiss" for Egoli Tossell Film.

David Leveaux will make his feature debut on the film, an adaptation of the Alan Judd novel which is set in the aftermath of the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands in 1940.

Jai Courtney Puckering Up For The Kaiser’s Last Kiss With Lily James

7 July 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that he’s proven lethal to nearly every project he’s participated in to date, from A Good Day to Die Hard to Terminator Genisys, Jai Courtney is inexplicably still landing plum roles left and right. Now, he’s signed on to lead drama The Kaiser’s Last Kiss, opposite the genuinely talented Lily James and Christopher Plummer.

Written by Simon Burke and based on Alan Judd’s book, the film is set in early WWII in the aftermath of the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands in 1940. The Dutch resistance covertly allies itself with Winston Churchill in order to undermine the Nazis by planting an agent in the home of former German monarch Kaiser Wilhelm (Plummer), who has been living in exile there since 1917.

James plays a young Jewish Dutch woman who embarks on a torrid, treacherous love affair with a German officer (Courtney), which becomes of »

Sex Sells in Corseted New 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Pictures

4 July 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It took a long time for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get the green light and I assume that's for a reason. I wasn't as large a detractor when it came to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as most (he threw a cow people!), but I have to assume the major selling point behind getting this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's revisionist novel is the fact not only will Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters be hunting zombies, but they'll be embracing keeping their weapons in some of the most discrete of places. Along with a batch of new pictures from the film, Entertainment Weekly has a quote from star Lily James, who plays Elizabeth Bennet, saying, "Rather than knitting and crocheting, they're polishing muskets... She's the most badass zombie slayer there is." The Bennet sister are trained to fight like ninjas by Mr Darcy (Sam Riley) and the film has »

New Images From Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Have Arrived

3 July 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

EW’s rather fantastic San Diego Comic-Con Preview continues with fresh new images from the long in development, at last in production adaption of Seth Graheme-Smith’s famous literature/zombie mash-up, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, starring Lily James, Sam Riely, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena Heady, and Charles Dance. There’s not much zombie action on display here, but plenty of Jane Austen’s heroines as bad ass zombie fighters, and a real sense that director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) is going for a very grounded tone to the material. As he tells EW,  “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink. It’s definitely not camp.” Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is released in the U.S. on February 5th 2016, and »
