Lucy Lawless joins Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

41 minutes ago

Spartacus, BSG and Xena's Lucy Lawless has joined Marvel's Agents Of Shield for its second season...

News

That noise you can hear? It's Lucy Lawless, somewhere in an L.A. mansion, repeatedly shouting "House!", because she's finally filled up her geek TV bingo card.

After winning geekdom's heart with her name-making role in Xena: Warrior Princess, Lawless went on to parts in The X-Files (just a small one), Battlestar Galactica (a pretty big one), and Spartacus: War Of The Damned (a major one), and memorably dropping in on Curb Your Enthusiasm to play herself along the way.

Now, Lawless is stepping on to the Helicarrier with a role in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season two. Who she'll be playing, and for how long is being kept under wraps for now, but expect that question to be asked during this week's Sdcc.

FX renews Louie for season 5

1 hour ago

Louis C.K.'s inventive, surprising Louie is returning to FX next year with a shortened seven-episode season...

News

When you have a talent like Louis C.K. on your books, you do two things: keep him there, and give him free rein. That's been FX's philosophy over the past few years of Louie, the often surreal, always surprising semi-autobiographical show from comedy auteur, Louis C.K., which has just been renewed for season five.

That approach isn't necessarily the most commercial - the most recent season of Louie returned lower ratings than ever in the Us - but it's one that keeps the talent, critics, and loyal fans happy. 

Louie will return to FX in 2015 for a shortened seven-episode fifth season. Don't expect it to get any less wierd or insightful, we predict. Half the episodes surely means double the strange brilliance per episode.

Fargo renewed for season 2 with new cast and characters

1 hour ago

FX's acclaimed Fargo will be returning for a second season with a new story, new cast, new time frame and new characters...

News

This news is bittersweet for Fargo fans. First the sweet bit: after the FX show received a stonking eighteen Emmy nominations, the network has ordered a further ten episodes of Fargo due to air next year. Hooray, hallulujah and so on.

Now comes the bitter part: words has it that it's going to be all-change for season one's cast and characters. That means no Billy Bob Thornton, no Martin Freeman, no Colin Hanks, and no Alison Tolman. Aw jeez, seems the appropriate response.

FX's CEO John Landgraf was full of praise for Noah Hawley's "audacious, bordering on hubristic riff on [his] favourite Coen brothers film", which he called "nothing short of breathtaking". Asked why season one's cast couldn't come back in different roles in the style of American Horror Story: Coven, »

Teen Wolf season 4 episode 5 review: I.E.D.

1 hour ago

Teen Wolf continues to be clever, funny and surprisingly adept. Here's Ron's review of I.E.D...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.5 I.E.D.

On one hand, there's a lacrosse scrimmage between Liam's old school and his new school. It's also Kira's first night on the lacrosse team and Scott and Stiles are both actually attempting to pay attention to school this year, since they're juniors now and need to actually keep their grades up if they want to go to a college that isn't Beacon Hills Tech. Of course, it's hard to focus on training a new Beta in the ways of lycanthropy when there's yet another group of powerful assassins on the loose in your hometown and local supernaturals are finding themselves chopped down with tomahawks, blown up with mines, and beheaded with weird heat filament garottes.

There are still teenager concerns to be dealt with, but »

Falling Skies season 4 episode 5 review: Mind Wars

2 hours ago

Falling Skies season 4 continues to fall into the 'good, but not great' category. Here's Ron's review of Mind Wars...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.5 Mind Wars

In life, there are things you have to do and there are things you must do. The difference between the two can be subtle on the surface, but to the person making the decision, the gulf is incalculably vast and painful to bridge. With things you must do, it's simply a matter of survival. With things you have to do, it's a matter of duty, honour, and protecting those you care about. Revenge, as it turns out, is neither of these things, and it's the duty of all survivors in the Falling Skies universe to learn the difference and act accordingly, because that's what separates those who survive by any means necessary from those who survive with a little bit of basic human dignity. »

Kevin Feige on Black Panther, female superhero movie

2 hours ago

Kevin Feige on Iron Man 4, Doctor Strange, Black Panther and a female-led superhero movie...

News

The press tour for Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy movie is well underway, and as such, Kevin Feige - the head honcho at the studio - has been answering lots of questions.

For instance, he's done an interesting new interview with Collider, where he first of all confirmed that he knows exactly what the five new movies that were recently dated through to 2019 are. He's not telling just yet, outside of confirming that Thor 3 and Captain America 3 are being developed. He's also confirmed that, contrary to rumour, the role of Doctor Strange hasn't been cast yet, although that may change by the time of Comic-Con at the weekend, as it sounds as though contracts are being sorted.

He also said "anything's a possibility" when quizzed about getting Robert Downey Jr back for Iron Man »

Trailer

Ethan Hawke's continued commitment to genre movies, as we discussed in the past here, continues with his latest picture, Predestination. This one's from Michael and Peter Spierig, who last helmed Daybreakers, that also starred Hawke.

New posters: Jurassic World, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

2 hours ago

New promo art for Jurassic World and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Right here!

Poster

A pair of new movie posters landed overnight, and we thought that you might be interested in seeing them. Assuming that you haven't seen them somewhere else on the internet first, but that's the risk we take here on a daily basis. Thus: we're going in.

Firstly, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has dropped some new promo artwork for the film over on his Twitter feed. It's a special poster put together by Mark Englert, that's going to be available at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. We checked, and it's definitely not going to be available in Halesowen, England. So this is the closest most of us will get...

And then there's a new poster for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which arrives in the Us in early August, although we don't get it here until October. »

Dark Souls II receives mammoth update ahead of Dlc

2 hours ago

Dark Souls II's first Dlc is due today, and a new patch has addressed a huge list of issues...

News

The first Dlc for Dark Souls II, Crown of the Sunken King, has probably landed by the time you read this, and accompanying it is a huge update that fixes and tweaks a massive range of features.

You can see the full list below (and it's some list), but highlights include a limit to the amount of souls a player can earn whilst fighting invaders, and the removal of healing abilities during any form of PvP, a common annoyance for those who follow Dark Souls' community created honour system of no healing during a fight.

A good portion of the update deals with balancing, making changes to weapons damage, armour effectiveness, and spells. Some items have been changed too, such as the very handy Gower's Ring of Protection, which has been weakened, »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

17 hours ago

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Utopia series 2 episode 2 review

20 hours ago

The second new episode of Utopia reunites the old gang and hits the ground running…

Review

This review contains spoilers.

Hear that? Underneath all the eerie buzzing beeps and whispering drones? That’s the sound of a TV show running at full pelt and knowing exactly where it’s heading. “They’re starting again” said back-from-the-grave Lee this week. That they are, praise be.

Episode two was this series’ real opener after that superb trip back to the seventies carefully and stylishly shaded in the outlines of Milner, Arby and Jessica. The purpose of that fifty-minute flashback was nowhere more clear than in this episode’s final scene. Imagine Milner asking a possum-playing Jessica “What have I done to you?” without understanding her history with Philip Carvel. Or for that matter, consider watching Milner’s meeting with Arby in which he assured her that his father was “not incredible, not »

True Blood season 7 episode 5 review: Return To Oz

20 hours ago

At the halfway point, True Blood's final season is beginning to feel like a series of slow goodbyes...

Review

This review contains spoilers. 

7.5 Return To Oz

After so much death and destruction in Bon Temps, this week it was apparently high time for a huge party – meaning tons of Byob (Bring Your Own Bottle) massive doses of Sseb (Screw Someone Else’s Boyfriend) and even more Ratgod (Reminiscing About the Good Ol Days). Yup, ain’t no party like a Bon Temps party, cos a Bon Temps party doubles as a wake, and occasionally a brothel. Let the good times roll...

Let’s start with the episode’s big news – no, not that Jane Bodehouse almost considered giving up drinking – but that one Bill Compton is in the Hep-v way. Shocking as this is, it does beg the question: who the hell has Bill been sucking on that’s »

Rainbow Rowell interview: Landline, fangirls, the internet

22 hours ago

Sarah chats to Fangirl and Eleanor & Park author Rainbow Rowell about geekdom, romance, Ya, and her new novel, Landline...

Interview

Rainbow Rowell writes love stories. Wait, yes, this is a geeky site, but just stay where you are. Rainbow Rowell writes love stories, and they’re amazing – and geeky. Her first novel, Attachments, is about an It guy in the 90s who accidentally falls in love with a woman whose emails he’s paid to read. Eleanor And Park, her acclaimed second novel, is rammed with references to 80s pop culture, as her characters fall in love through their shared appreciation of music and comics. And Fangirl, well, as the title suggests, Fangirl is about fan culture, and a fanfiction writer learning to turn her online emotions into real life ones.

Basically, Rainbow Rowell writes characters you’re going to identify with. I gulped down all of her novels to date in a single serving, »

The Flash/Arrow crossover episode announced

21 July 2014 12:30 AM, PDT

A two-hour crossover episode will unite the worlds of The Flash's first and Arrow's third season...

News

The crossover episode is the Brucie bonus of TV shows sharing a single universe. Think Angel and Buffy, Hercules and Xena, Star Trek: Tos and Deep Space Nine...

Soon to join that list is Arrow and The Flash, two common-universe shows that will share a whopping two-hour crossover episode later this year. Executive Producer Andrew Kriesberg confirmed at this year's TCA tour that "Episodes 8 of both shows, Arrow and Flash, are going to be a two-hour crossover event."

That's not all, as Kriesberg also confirmed that Arrow's Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) will also be turning up in The Flash in episode four of the new series. If you were planning on tuning in to The Flash but up until now have given Arrow a miss, now might be the time to »

Wentworth Miller to guest star in The Flash

21 July 2014 12:03 AM, PDT

Prison Break star and screenwriter Wentworth Miller will guest star in The Flash as a supervillain...

News

Wentworth Miller, the actor who made his name as heavily tattooed structural engineer Michael Schofield in Prison Break and then went on to make a bit more of his name by writing an acclaimed screenplay for Chan-wook Park's Stoker, is to guest star in The CW's The Flash.

Miller is to play the role of Leonard Snart, familiar to comic book fans as the petty criminal who accidentally pimped his gun into a freeze-ray and became the nefarious Captain Cold. Despite having a name that makes him sound like a lemon-based lozenge designed to relieve kids' sore throats, Captain Cold is actually a pretty nasty customer. The leader of The Rogues, he's guaranteed to make life difficult for Central City's Flash.

Snart will first appear in episode four of The Flash, which »
