Ari Millen Talks Orphan Black Season 3

4 minutes ago

The BBC America drama series Orphan Black is back for Season 3, in which the clone sisterhood (brilliantly played by Tatiana Maslany), known as Project Leda, is now forced to deal with the fact that they’re no longer alone, as they cross paths with a new group of militaristic male clones (played so chillingly by Ari Millen), known as Project Castor. More shocking twists and turns will arise, and characters will be forced to come into their own more than ever before, if they’re going to survive. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Ari Millen talked about finding out that he’d be playing the Project Castor clones, having Tatiana Maslany as a guide for playing those clones, that it’s scary but great to explore so many different characters within the same show, where it’s all going this season, and what it’s like to develop each clone. »

The Casual Vacancy Review: A Hurried Tale of Small Town Woe

39 minutes ago

J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy, adapted by Sarah Phelps into a TV miniseries, is the tonal inversion of the Harry Potter series. In Harry Potter, small tragedies were overshadowed by a final, triumphant outcome. There was a sense that all the struggle and sadness that had come before had been for something. In The Casual Vacancy, small triumphs are overshadowed by much darker tragedies, and in the end, it leaves a portrait of a broken system that might make even Dickens pause over its bleakness. Stylistically, HBO's three-hour miniseries (over three episodes, co-produced by the BBC) feels like any number of sleekly-produced PBS series that take place in an idyllic English hamlet (Grantchester immediately comes to mind) -- just with more sex and swearing. Director Jonny Campbell's camera lingers on the lush foliage and rolling hills of the Cotswolds, in England's West Country, and on the old stonework »

New MacBeth Images Featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard

45 minutes ago

We ran the very first images from Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth over a year ago, but now that the Shakespeare adaptation is gearing up for a Cannes premiere, we’ve got three more to share. Plus, in addition to those images, Empire also has some new information on Kurzel’s take on the material via the film’s official synopsis: “[It’s] a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war-torn medieval Scotland”. The outlet also pulled this bit from the press notes regarding Kurzel’s thoughts on the 11th century setting: “It reminded me a lot of a Western, and of a landscape and atmosphere that felt much more dangerous than I’d ever seen before from adaptations of Macbeth”. Michael Fassbender leads the film as Macbeth, a general in King »

Independence Day 2 Adds Maika Monroe as President Whitmore’s Daughter

1 hour ago

I had a good feeling we’d be seeing more of Maika Monroe after she appeared in Ramin Bahrani’s At Any Price, but the success of It Follows likely locked in a promising career for the pro kiteboarder-turned-actress. Just weeks after It Follows scored over $160,000 in one weekend in just four theaters and earned itself a wide release, Monroe has been cast in the highly anticipated sequel to Independence Day. [caption id="attachment_341404" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Picturehouse[/caption] Director Roland Emmerich made the announcement on Twitter, but THR also chimed in with a few more details. Apparently Monroe will be the female lead in the film, Liam Hemsworth’s character’s love interest and President Thomas J. Whitmore’s (Bill Pullman) daughter, Patricia Whitmore. Admittedly, I am a bit disappointed that Mae Whitman isn’t returning to take the role, especially when she grew up to be a talented actress, but there’s »

Joss Whedon and the Avengers: Age Of Ultron Cast Reveal Their Worst Jobs Ever

13 hours ago

When I sat down to talk with the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast and writer-director  Joss Whedon at the Los Angeles junket, I went in with a gameplan: ask them some fun questions and turn the answers into quick-cutting videos. I know some of you will be disappointed I didn’t use my time focusing on the movie, but since I did interviews on the set of Age of Ultron, and posted those over the past few months (links further down the page), I wanted to do something different. In the video below, Paul BettanyJames SpaderMark RuffaloChris EvansChris HemsworthElizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonJeremy RennerCobie Smulders and Joss Whedon talk about the worst job they’ve ever had.  Look for more Avengers: Age of Ultron coverage tomorrow and every day for the next week.

Dukes Of Oxy: Ansel Elgort and Michael De Luca Circling True Crime Saga

14 hours ago

New Line has acquired the true crime saga, Dukes of Oxy, with Michael De Luca in talks to produce and Ansel Elgort circling a leading role. Based on the 'Rolling Stone' article by Guy Lawson (who also wrote the article that inspired Todd Phillips' Arms and Dudes), Dukes of Oxy recounts the true-life story of Doug Dodd and Lance Barabas, a pair of Florida-based teenagers who built a multi-million dollar drug-smuggling business, blackmarketing OxyContin and other painkillers. Per Deadline, Elgort is in talks to star as Dodd, the level-headed member of the drug smuggling duo. At the start of their enterprise, Dodd sought advice from an ex-con family member, who did time for dealing drugs, and learned a set of useful rules - don't talk on the phone, no guns, cut ties with anyone under investigation - sensible drug dealing stuff.

Gotham Recap: “The Anvil or the Hammer”

14 hours ago

When last we left Miss Keane, she was in the clutches of The Ogre ... who revealed his S&M/torture den to her the night before. Apparently she rather enjoyed it since the two of them only got one hour of sleep. Since he's done pretty well by Barbara so far, he also admits that he had planned to kill her the night they met, but she turned out to be the woman he's been searching for. He'll have to search a little harder because Barbara tries to flee, and ends up hoodwinked for her trouble. Whatever rough stuff they got up to the night before pales in comparison to what he has in store for her now. (Fox is really not afraid of playing up the domestic violence angle of this sordid situation, are they?) [caption id="attachment_450579" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Fox[/caption] Once he's in full control of Barbara, he shows her photographs of his previous victims. »

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell Trailer Brings Magic Back to England

15 hours ago

BBC has released a new trailer for the mini-series adaptation of Susanna Clarke's brilliant novel Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Faithfully adapted for the screen by director Toby Haynes (Doctor Who) and screenwriter Peter Harness (Wallander), Strange and Norrell picks takes place in Napoleonic England when practical magic is all but dead to the world. All that remains is a society of priggish old men who pontificate and philosophize on theoretical magic, unable to cast a single spell, until two very different magicians - the peculiar Mr. Norrell (Eddie Marsan) and the whimsical Jonathan Strange (Bertie Carvell) - revive English magic and join forces in the war against France. Trailer via BBC. Often mismarketed as Harry Potter for adults, an irritating misnomer that somehow manages to belittle both Susanna Clarke's creativity and J.K. Rowling's maturity,  Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell is in fact a glorious beast all its own. »

Chris Columbus Talks Pixels, the Gremlins Reboot, and The Goonies Sequel

16 hours ago

One of the movies I’m most looking forward to this summer is an Adam Sandler film. You read that right. I said Adam Sandler. While I’ll be the first one to admit his track record has some blemishes, I don’t think Pixels is going to be one of them. In fact, I think Pixels is going to surprise everyone when it turns out to be a lot of fun. If you’re not familiar with the film, it’s helmed by Chris Columbus and revolves around a group of 80's gaming champions who are called upon to defend Earth from alien invaders who have misinterpreted our classic arcade games as a declaration of war. Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan, Josh GadKevin James, and Brian Cox round out the cast. As a huge fan of 80s arcade games like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Centipede, I can »

You’Re Next and The Guest Director Adam Wingard to Helm Death Note

17 hours ago

Going all the way back to A Horrible Way to Die, director Adam Wingard has proven himself to be someone who can ably work with lots of contrasting tones throughout the horror genre. He gets good performances from his actors, makes interesting choices, and generally makes the movies he's involved with look like they cost a lot more than they actually do. After You're Next and The Guest (both movies are lots of fun if you haven't seen them), I'm excited to see him go a little bit bigger budget with The Woods (which he starts shooting for Lionsgate quite soon). Now we're getting news he'll tackle Death Note for Warner Bros. after that. I hadn't actually heard of the original Japanese film of the same name until today, but the premise sounds fantastic. Per THR the film "centers on a student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him »

Daredevil Recap: “Condemned”

18 hours ago

New episodic recaps of Daredevil’s first season post on Mondays and Thursdays. You can read all previous installments here. To start, if I had to pick the weakest episode of the 13 episode season of Daredevil, "Condemned" would be the one. While obviously still solid, this episode doesn’t have the choreography, dramatic beats, character moments, or ratcheted-up tension that could be found peppered throughout the series up until this point. Now, to be fair, this isn’t to say that the episode isn’t good -- it is -- but it just doesn’t reach the heights its predecessors established. This episode is, in a nutshell, “Daredevil: The Bottle Episode,” imprisoning Matt and the wounded Russian mafioso, Vladimir, in an abandoned warehouse together, fighting for their lives against Wilson Fisk and the corrupt members of the New York City Police Department currently on his payroll. After handling a couple of corrupt cops, »

Mr. Fantastic Won’t Stretch His Body In Fantastic Four

18 hours ago

This is actually not a big deal at all, but there's a general sense of outrage out there regarding this issue (of course, it's the year of outrage) so I feel compelled to chime in on the behalf of clarification. In director Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four remake, Miles Teller's Reed Richards will not, technically, be able to stretch his body. Instead, he'll be stretching the space around his body. What's the actual difference? None, as far as you'll be able to see since the stretching of the space makes it look like his body is stretching. People are sort of angry about this and I can't tell why (aside from the fact that everyone is angry about everything these days). It all comes from a character breakdown on the official website of Fantastic Four. There it says Richards can warp the space around him and appear to »

Mad Max: Fury Road Images Reveal Gigahorse, War Rig and More Vehicles

18 hours ago

When every frame of a trailer is so insanely stunning, it’s impossible to take in all the details. Luckily, Car and Driver just scored images of 10 Mad Max: Fury Road vehicles for us to analyze. They’re all loads of fun to look at, but I also highly recommend navigating over to Car and Driver for a second look because their slideshow comes with loads of curious details about each vehicle. There’s the “Peacemaker,” a car that’s part Valiant Charger and part Ripsaw tank, “The Gigahorse,” a huge truck chassis with two Cadillac Coupe DeVilles stacked on top of it and the “Fdk” (whatever that stands for), a Volkswagen Beetle that serves as a flame-thrower. You can check out all 10 vehicles in the new Mad Max: Fury Road images below, but apparently production designer Colin Gibson built “150-or-so” of them in total so we’ve got far »

Thor: The Dark World Revisited: “This Is Not of Earth”

19 hours ago

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening on Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] If Iron Man 3 is a break from the McU, then Thor: The Dark World is getting back to work. This time, Marvel had the freedom to expand on the character since audiences liked Thor (Chris Hemsworth), they understood how his world worked, and they wanted to see more. In terms of pushing audiences into more sci-fi, the second Thor is terrific and features plenty of great production design, costumes, and inter-dimensional hopping that may rest upon a weak plot, but still provides plenty of entertainment. Thor: The Dark World repeats the first film by creating a new, scary “other”. This time, instead of Laufey and the Frost Giants, it’s Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) and the Dark Elves. Like Thor, we start with Odin providing a prologue about how this one race was bad but “the noble forces of Asgard” saved the day. The movie doesn’t really explain who »

Watch: Far From The Madding Crowd Cast Makes 19th Century Dating Profiles

20 hours ago

Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan) may be looking for love in the 19th century, but Thomas Vinterberg’s (The Hunt) adaptation of the classic Thomas Hardy novel Far from the Madding Crowd still feels surprisingly relevant. Bathsheba is an independent, career driven woman who suddenly finds herself with three men vying for her hand in marriage, a sheep farmer (Matthias Schoenaerts), a cocky solider (Tom Sturridge) and a wealthy farm owner (Michael Sheen). All three have pros and cons so while in New York City promoting the upcoming release, I opted to find out how Schoenaerts and Sheen would sell Mr. Oak and Boldwood in modern times - by creating an online dating profile. Find out what they said and what Mulligan thinks Bathsheba should have on her own page in the video below, and be sure to keep an eye out for my full interviews with all three as we »

Homeland Season 5 to Be Filmed Entirely in Berlin, Germany

20 hours ago

Homeland is one of the few shows on current television that consistently earns the word "unpredictable" as its chief descriptor. Following the shaky narrative and wonky, volatile emotions of Season 3, which saw the final exit of Damian Lewis's Nicholas Brody, the show refocused in last year's blistering fourth season, mainly by jettisoning not only Brody but all the bloated drama that surrounded his family. There is something to be said, however, about the way the show's creators and writers stuck it out to give a full, measured picture of what life for the families of violent political radicals is like in the longterm. Still, the fourth season survived by focusing on Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and her dangerous, mercurial profession in Islamabad and Washington D.C. Season 5 looks to be focusing on a new profession and, as it was announced today, a totally new locale, namely Berlin, Germany, which »

Sesame Street Avengers Parody Teaches the Importance of Focus and Vegetables

21 hours ago

Sesame Street enjoys playing on pop culture, and its latest sketch is pretty darn cute. The Sesame Street Avengers parody, “The Aveggies – Age of Bon Bon”, features Cookie Monster trying to defeat an alien spaceship that’s a giant cookie. He’s the best monster for the job, but he needs some help focusing on his goal. Thankfully, he has some superheroes to help him out like Black Bean Window and The Mighty Corn. I like that this isn’t really a promotional tie-in as much as a fun way to get kids to have a positive association with vegetables and also learn about the importance of focusing on their goals. Watch the Sesame Street Avengers parody video below. [caption id="attachment_450399" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via Sesame Street[/caption]

John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein Talk Vacation, Paying Homage to the Original

21 hours ago

If you’d have told me before arriving at CinemaCon that one of the films I’d be raving about after the convention would be the new Vacationmovie, I would not have believed you. But after watching the insanely funny red-band trailer for the upcoming comedy during the Warner Bros. panel (which will be online in early May), I’m completely sold. If you’re not aware, Vacation marks the directorial debut of Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein and stars Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty Griswold, who opts to take his own family on a vacation that goes horribly wrong. Christina Applegate  plays Rusty’s wife, Leslie Mann is his sister Audrey, and Chris Hemsworth plays Audrey’s up-and-coming anchorman husband, marking the Thor actor’s first big foray into comedy. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo also make cameos reprising their roles as the elder Griswolds. »

Avengers: Infinity War to Start Shooting in Late 2016; Will Film for 9 Months

22 hours ago

There’s no rest for a weary superhero. Chris Evans is out promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron, and very soon he’ll be suiting up again to start filming on Captain America: Civil War. Evans spoke to Esquire about his upcoming shooting schedule and says that filming on Civil War will go until about “August or September”, which is the usual shoot time for a major blockbuster film. However, because he’s on a Marvel contract and Marvel has release dates for all of its Phase Three movies, Evans also knows that he’ll be needed for Avengers: Infinity War, which will be two films shot back to back. Evans tells Esquire that he thinks filming begins in either fall or winter 2016 and, “That's going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back."

Weekend TV Ratings: Bruce Jenner Interview Wins Big for ABC, Messengers Rises

23 hours ago

The weekend TV ratings for Friday, April 24th through Sunday, April 26th are in; here are some of the highlights: The big winner on Friday night was ABC, whose Bruce Jenner interview pulled a massive 5.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, and a whopping 16.86 million viewers. If you couldn't tell from my other adjectives, that's huge. Back at 8 p.m. on Friday, Shark Tank was up two tenths to a 1.7 rating for ABC, while NBC's Grimm stayed steady in that hour with a 1.0 rating and 4.7 million viewers. On the CW, Cedric's Barber Battle bucked the trend of series losing numbers after their premieres by being up two tenths to a 0.4 rating and 1.36 million viewers. Their other new series, The Messengers, also bounced up a tenth to a 0.4 rating and 1.2 million viewers. On Saturday, NBC's Stanley Cup coverage was down a tenth to a 0.8 rating and 2.69 million viewers. [caption id="attachment_416894" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via ABC[/caption] Sunday, »
