Hugh Jackman teases “one last time” as Wolverine

9 hours ago

In the run up to the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past there were rumblings from Hugh Jackman that he could be looking to hang up the claws on his signature role as Wolverine, only for him to make an apparent U-turn last month when he said that he wants to keep playing him “until he dies”. Well, if the latest Instagram post from the actor is any indication, it seems he may have had another change of heart…

 

At present, Jackman is only officially confirmed as returning to the role of Logan for 2017’s sequel to The Wolverine, although he is expected to feature in X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set to go into production next month, and he’s recently said he’s open to the idea of cameoing in Deadpool, which is filming now.

So, it’s a little unclear which film he could be referring to with his post, »

First trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s Blunt Talk starring Patrick Stewart

12 hours ago

The first trailer has arrived online for Blunt Talk, the upcoming live-action comedy series from Starz and executive producer Seth MacFarlane, which sees Patrick Stewart as Walter Blunt, a British newsman looking to make it in the world of American cable news. Check it out below…

Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. Through the platform of his nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the alcoholic manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles.

Blunt Talk is set to premiere in the summer, »

Steven Moffat talks Sherlock series 4 and a potential crossover with Doctor Who

13 hours ago

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat has been discussing the upcoming fourth series of the acclaimed detective drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, teasing what’s to come with the new episodes, and how series four will distinguish itself from the first three.

“There are answers coming to questions which nobody has asked. There’s one thing that no one has really brought up… We’ve actually set up something, I think—[co-creator Mark Gatiss] and me, we’re very exultant about a little thing we’ve set up that no one is talking about… We haven’t started writing it yet, so it’s early. The first series was all about the beginning of their friendship. Second about the formative stages, the love and fear and loss and all that. The third was good days, me and my pal and my pal’s wife. Those are golden days. »

House of Cards Season 3 Episode 6 Review – ‘Chapter 32′

13 hours ago

Jackson Ball reviews the sixth episode of House of Cards Season 3…

So far the Underwoods seem to be rolling with all punches that Washington (and beyond) can throw at them. However, more so than any time in the previous two series, it is starting to feel as though Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Clare (Robin Wright) are on borrowed time, as the cracks begin to appear in their presidency… and their marriage.

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

Let’s get straight into it: It’s Russia. Time for Round 2. President vs. President. Underwood vs. Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen). The clash of the superpowers is about to kick-off… or is it? The biggest curveball of this episode is that the central conflict does not stem from Petrov butting heads with Frank, but rather the First Lady, Clare.

But let’s back up for a second. We arrive in Russia with the Underwoods. »

10 TV21 Strips That Would Make Great ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ Episodes

19 hours ago

Fred McNamara with 10 TV21 strips that would make great ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ episodes…

Amidst rumours that some episodes of the classic Thunderbirds series may be given a modern makeover for the upcoming remake, wouldn’t it be fun to examine which of the TV21 comic strips would suit a modernisation?

TV21 was the official comic spin-off for Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and many other of Gerry Anderson’s sci-fi puppet shows. The reason for focusing on comics and not original episodes would be that Thunderbirds Are Go! is set to have a running time of 25 mins per episode, half of the original series’ episodes.

The original series had slow-burning feel to it, thanks to the lengthily duration of each episode. This new series promises to be shorter and snappier, which raises similarities between the new series and the TV21 strips. The strips themselves were often far more basic in terms »

Jon Hamm tells Robert Kirkman to “call me” about role on The Walking Dead

19 hours ago

With Mad Men coming to a close, actor Jon Hamm will soon have more time on his hands to take on other roles, and in an interview with MTV to promote the final season of the show, Hamm was asked about playing the villain Negan in The Walking Dead.

“Robert, call me. Come on,” said Hamm, referring to The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman,. “I’ve met Robert many times, he’s a lovely guy. I think he’s done wonders with that show and I know it’s very close to him, obviously. I’m always very nervous about anything about anybody’s saying ‘do this or do that’. That’s why I’m always in a hundred things all the time, because I always say yes. I don’t know, we’ll see. It would be fun, that’s for sure.”

Second Opinion – Get Hard (2015)

20 hours ago

Get Hard, 2015

Directed by Etan Cohen

Starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Craig T. Nelson, Alison Brie, T.I, Edwina Findley Dickerson, Ariana Neal, Paul Ben-Victor

Synopsis:

When millionaire James King is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.

Let’s just address the elephant in the room; Get Hard is one of the most relentlessly offensive movies to be released in quite some time, which is a loaded statement considering that pretty much all R-rated comedies are about being juvenile. That isn’t a bad thing though; complete stupidity can yield hilarious material so long as the execution is not malicious, but intended for fun. Yes, Get Hard goes for broke with racial and sexual content (there is literally a scene where Will Ferrell comes inches away from sucking on a penis) but I’ll be damned »

Movie Review – Cinderella (2015)

20 hours ago

Cinderella, 2015.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Starring Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Helena Bonham Carter, Hayley Atwell, Stellan Skarsgard, Ben Chaplin and Derek Jacobi.

Synopsis:

When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.

Re-boot, Re-imagining, Re-telling, Re-make, Re-hash, regurgitation… There are a lot of “Re’s” in Hollywood lately, some of them work… (Dredd, Evil Dead, True Grit) and some of them don’t… (Spider-Man, Total Recall, any recent Tim Burton films). Unfortunately the latest uh… re-telling, I guess… Cinderella falls into the latter, but its not all bad…

We all know the story so I’m not going to bore you with the glass slipper routine, it’s just a shame that the makers of this »

Simon Pegg says Star Trek 3 will have “the spirit of the TV show”

21 hours ago

A few days ago Simon Pegg spoke about his work alongside Doug Jung on the script for Paramount PicturesStar Trek 3, stating that the screenplay had to be finished by June “come hell or high water”, and now he’s offered up a few comments on the tone they’re going for on the threequel during a chat with Spinoff Online.

“We just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation.”
