22 Jump Street DVD and Blu-ray release date

1 hour ago

The hit live action comedy sequel, 22 Jump Street, will be arriving on disc in November.

News

The hugely successful sequel to 21 Jump Street, cunningly entitled 22 Jump Street, has proven itself to be the live action comedy of the year thus far. It's outperforming the original at the box office too, and also features one of the finest end credits sequences in living memory.

All the more reason why some people might want to catch the film again on DVD and Blu-ray. And now we know when to expect the movie’s release on disc. Amazon has popped 22 Jump Street up for order, with a November 17th 2014 date. At the moment, there’s a DVD and Blu-ray version, and the inevitable double pack too. You'll be getting a fair few chuckles for your money there, we'd suggest.

No word on extra features yet, mind.

The Tomorrow People's Robbie Amell joins The Flash

8 hours ago

Robbie Amell is to play Star Labs worker Ronnie Raymond in Arrow spin-off, The Flash...

News

Now that The Tomorrow People remake is dead and buried, The Flash has filled the gap in Robbie Amell's schedule.

Amell (yup, the cousin of Arrow lead Stephen) has joined The Flash in a recurring role as Ronnie Raymond, an employee at Star Labs "who plays an integral part in the particle accelerator incident that transforms Barry Allen into The Flash".

If you don't want to know more about Amell's character, look away now, because the name Ronnie Raymond will have rung a bell for DC comic book readers.

Raymond is of course one half of the two characters eventually fused together to create Firestorm, a kind of superhero version of the Steve Martin classic All Of Me, if you like.

Orphan Black renewed for season 3

9 hours ago

BBC America has renewed Orphan Black for a much-deserved third season, due to arrive in 2015...

News

Judging by the intense fan fervour for the series (meet anyone who watches and chances are they'll talk your ear off about how you should be too), there should never have been a doubt that Orphan Black would return for a third season.

Geeks however, know better than anyone that fan fervour isn't enough to keep a beloved show alive - even when no power in the 'verse can stop it (sob).

Excellent news then, that Orphan Black's ratings and popularity have crept up over its second season, ensuring a third run, due to air in 2015. All credit to Tatiana Maslany for a staggering series of performances that deserve shiny statue-shaped rewards by the wheelbarrowful. Please join us in emitting a hearty hoo and indeed, ray.

Steven Moffat Star Wars rumour false

9 hours ago

The rumour doing the rounds that Steven Moffat is doing Star Wars has been debunked....

News

Update: This particular rumour has been shot down. Here's the Tweet from Sue Vertue...

Just in case you've seen rumours that #stevenmoffat is doing Star Wars - that's news to him!

— sue vertue (@suevertue) July 10, 2014

This is the original story we ran....

Jedi News is reporting a new rumour this morning, that suggests that Doctor Who and Sherlock co-executive producer and writer Steven Moffat has been offered a Star Wars movie.

Clearly this is nothing more than rumour thus far, and the site doesn't have light to throw on whether it's a standalone spin-off movie or part of the ongoing saga that he's been linked with. Moffat's last feature film work was co-writing the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn. He turned down writing more »

Alec Baldwin and Rebecca Ferguson join Mission: Impossible 5

9 hours ago

Tom Cruise has two new recruits for Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible 5...

News

Production on Mission: Impossible 5 is set to begin later this year, with Tom Cruise reprising the role of Ethan Hunt, and Christopher McQuarrie directing this time. McQuarrie last directed Cruise in Jack Reacher.

The film is set to shoot mainly in the UK this time, with Simon Pegg also returning. And we now learn that there have been two big new additions to the cast.

Firstly, Alec Baldwin is joining the project, to play the head of the CIA (it'll apparently be a role not dissimilar to that of Laurence Fishburne's in Mission: Impossible III). Then Rebecca Ferguson, next to be seen in Brett Ratner's Hercules, is to take on the female lead role in the new film. Said role is described as "a deadly femme fatale", and it's the part originally linked with Jessica Chastain. »

North Korea complains to Un about new Seth Rogen film

9 hours ago

North Korea has escalated its complaint against Seth Rogen's next movie to the United Nations.

News

Well, this one's showing no sign of dying down. A few weeks back, it was revealed that the North Korean authorities had not taken kindly to Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's upcoming comedy, The Interview. The premise of the new comedy sees a pair of unlikely assassins being tasked by the CIA with taking out North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. James Franco co-stars with Rogen in the movie.

Previously, a spokesperson for North Korea declared that the film was "an act of war", arguing that "making and releasing a movie on a plot to hurt our top-level leadership is the most blatant act of terrorism and war and will absolutely not be tolerated. "A merciless counter-measure" has been promised in return if the release of the film goes ahead.

Neil Gaiman's How To Talk To Girls At Parties is getting the big screen treatment, with Elle Fanning set to star.

News

Sandman may be the highest profile Neil Gaiman project going through the Hollywood system at the moment (with American Gods heading to the small screen), but there's also a feature based on one of his short stories in the works too.

How To Talk To Girls At Parties is a Gaiman short story that's being adapted for the big screen by John Cameron Mitchell, along with Philippa Goslett. Mitchell is also set to direct. He is the man, of course, behind the terrific Hedwig And The Angry Inch.

Furthermore, it's now been revealed that Elle Fanning is attached to star in the film, taking on the role of a female alien on Earth, who wants to explore the most dangerous place in the entire galaxy. That would be Croydon. »

We're liking these.

Alien: Isolation pre-orders get Ellen Ripley and Co.

11 hours ago

Those who pre-order Sega's upcoming Alien Isolation will get Dlc starring the original movie cast...

News

Sega has unveiled the inevitable pre-order Dlc deal for Alien: Isolation, and it takes players back to the original 1979 movie, Alien, giving us a chance to play out two scenes from the film.

Pre-orders in the UK (and presumably other regions) will all receive an upgrade to the Nostromo Edition, which will include the Dlc, Crew Expendable. This Dlc lets players pick one of the original crew, including Dallas, Parker, and, of course, Ellen Ripley. Events take place after the death of Brett, and players must work with fellow survivors, Lambert and Ash, exploring the Nostromo in order to lure the deadly xenomorph into the ship's airlock.

That's not all, though. Those who buy the game from select retailers will also get access to the Last Survivor Dlc. This sees Ellen Ripley alone on the Nostromo, »

What can we expect from new BBC drama, The Last Kingdom?

17 hours ago

Nick talks us through Bernard Cornwell's The Last Kingdom, soon to be a BBC Two TV series...

Feature

So it seems Vikings are in this season. Casting envious glances at the success of Vikings on History and wanting their own Game Of Thrones phenomenon, the Beeb has ordered an eight-part series based on the first novel in Bernard Cornwell’s hugely successful Saxon/Viking saga, The Saxon Stories.

At an unspecified future date, we will be able to watch The Last Kingdom on a viewing device of your choice.

What’s it all about?

Set during between 866 and 879, The Last Kingdom charts the Viking invasion of Britain and the collapse of the Saxon kingdoms of Northumbria, Mercia, and East Anglia, leaving only Wessex, and King Alfred, standing. Set against this is the story of Uhtred of Bebbaburg, a young Saxon nobleman who is captured by the Vikings as a boy, »

Richard III review

17 hours ago

Richard III feat. Martin Freeman is a vigorous, brutal, and accessible retelling of Shakespeare’s tale of political villainy…

The world loves a bastard. Will it, though, love one whose legendary wickedness is played for laughs and not venom? Martin Freeman’s taut performance as Richard III in a new Trafalgar Studios production wrings cruel humour from the play’s every pun and pause. Freeman jerks his head, and the audience laughs. He raises his eyebrows, and we laugh. He commits murder, shrugs it off, and we laugh. Who knew fifteenth century crown politics could be such a riot?

Jamie Lloyd’s play sets Shakespeare’s lurid account of Richard III’s rapid ascent to “the supreme seat” against the backdrop of the 1979 English winter of discontent. The idea, apt pun aside, is to evoke political instability and bring to mind the behind-the-scenes machinations that unseat power.

Bernard Cornwell's The Last Kingdom coming to BBC 2

9 July 2014 7:47 AM, PDT

BBC 2 is adapting Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Stories for an historical 8-episode TV drama...

News

Here's a spot of exciting news. Bernard Cornwell's gripping The Last Kingdom novel is coming to BBC Two in the form of a shiny eight-part TV series.

Part of the Saxon Stories saga, The Last Kingdom is an historical drama starting in the year 872 in a post-Viking invasion pre-England. It follows the fate of young Uhtred Ragnarson, a man of noble Saxon birth but orphaned and raised by Vikings, who must decide where his loyalties lie against a backdrop of bloody battle and heroic deeds. 

The project has quickly been labelled the BBC's answer to Game Of Thrones, which, if accurate, finds no complaints from these quarters. The BBC's Drama Commissioning Controller, Ben Stephenson however, says The Last Kingdom "will feel like nothing else on television, with all of the scale and »

Pretty Little Liars season 5 episode 5 review: Miss Me X 100

9 July 2014 7:29 AM, PDT

Pretty Little Liars reaches its hundredth episode, but has it lost the plot along the way? Here's Caroline's review...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

5.5 Miss Me X 100

When a show reaches 100 episodes, it’s hard not to get nostalgic and look back at the episodes that led here, the state of characters and relationships now rather than five seasons ago and where, potentially, the series can go from here. The hundredth episode of Pretty Little Liars makes a lot of that hard to do, basically because we know there are still 70-odd episodes to come, but also because it’s meandered so much that it’s almost impossible to recognise what it is anymore.

Is it about the ubiquitous monsters under the beds of young women, as Spencer and Alison mused last week, or about the rise of cyber bullying in American high schools? Is it a camp soap opera »

Director David Slade joins Sony PlayStation's Powers

9 July 2014 12:07 AM, PDT

Hannibal, 30 Days Of Night, and Twilight director, David Slade, is going behind the camera for Sony PlayStation's Powers TV series...

News

With a clutch of shiny, new and returning Marvel and DC TV series arriving this autumn and early next year (Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Constantine, iZombie, Agents Of Shield, Daredevil...) it would be easy for Powers, a live-action series based on the superhero noir series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming now published by Marvel, to be lost among the throng.

Ensuring the show's visuals stand out from the crowd will be director David Slade, who's joined the Sony PlayStation TV series to establish Powers' look and direct the first two episodes.

Slade was amongst those who created Hannibal's distinctive style, after his debut feature, 2005's Hard Candy, and follow-up 30 Days Of Night, impressed showrunner Bryan Fuller. More recently, Slade has directed a Twilight film - Eclipse -, »

Game Of Thrones season 4 VFX reel

8 July 2014 11:47 PM, PDT

See exactly what Game Of Thrones' visual effects artists did to create the impressive look of season four...

News

In all the praise for screenwriters, directors and cast, the panoply of technical genius that goes in to making a season of HBO's Game Of Thrones risks going unmentioned. Visual effects houses like Mackevision, the one showcasing their work on the series below, conjure backdrops and entire landscapes using skill, physics, and niftily applied design software.

The sea on which the boat carrying Arya to Braavos travelled in the season four finale? Conjured. The Red Keep backdrop to The Mountain and The Red Viper's trial-by-combat? Conjured. The armies behind Ramsay Snow and Roose Bolton's father-son chat? Conjured, conjured, conjured.

In salute to those often undersung talents then, enjoy just one showreel of just some of the hugely impressive visual effects that go in to making your favourite TV show...

Penny Dreadful episode 8 review: Grand Guignol

8 July 2014 11:16 PM, PDT

Penny Dreadful's finale rounds off a masterful first season. Here's Becky's review of Grand Guignol...

Review

This review contains spoilers. 

1.8 Grand Guignol

Grand Guignol draws the first season of Penny Dreadful to a close as Vanessa finally learns the location of childhood friend, Mina. Murray reveals the extent to which he would go in order to get his daughter back and sets about gathering their allies for the final confrontation. Elsewhere, Frankenstein and his Creature are forced back together and Chandler’s past begins to catch up with him as Brona’s illness finally takes its course.

The constant presence of death has been one of the chief concerns for the characters of Penny Dreadful, whether it be facing its ominous approach or attempting to find ways of defeating it. In Grand Guignol, death comes to the fore once again not as a finality, but an opportunity for rebirth. »

Chris Columbus joins the Gremlins reboot

8 July 2014 11:00 PM, PDT

The writer of the original Gremlins joins the new movie as a producer...

News

Well, it looks as if Warner Bros is serious this time. For many years, there's been talk of a Gremlins reboot/remake/belated sequel, but there finally seems to be some real progress being made.

We already knew that Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg were involved with the new Gremlins film. But The Tracking Board now reports that Chris Columbus has jumped aboard the new Gremlins as a producer. Columbus penned the screenplay for the first film, and he's also set to produce the belated Goonies sequel that's also in the works. Steven Spielberg is also said to be involved in both projects.

The Tracking Board suggests that the new Gremlins is a remake, although we're not 100% sure that's the case. It does seem clear that the director of the first two films, Joe Dante, is not involved, »
