Sherlock is less of a brat in Victorian special, says Steven Moffat

1 August 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sherlock Holmes will be less of a brat and "a little more polished" in the upcoming Sherlock Victorian special, according to showrunner Steven Moffat.

In the original series Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) has called himself a "high-functioning sociopath" - but in the special, fans of the show will see a different kind of detective.

Sherlock's unaired pilot: How does it stack up to 'A Study In Pink'?

"Sherlock is a little more polished, he operates like a Victorian gentleman instead of like a posh, rude man," said Moffat during the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday (August 1). "He's a lot less brattish when he's back then, and Doctor Watson is a bit more upright."

Set in 1895, Holmes and Dr Watson (Martin Freeman) will be investigating a mysterious crime during the one-off special.

Moffat also dropped a possible plot teaser, hinting: "Ghost stories work better in a Victorian setting. Other than that, »

The Criterion Collection announces October Blu-ray releases

17 July 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blu-ray distributors The Criterion Collection have announced its line-up for its October releases, which once again include some of cinema’s finest actors, directors and creators.

Navigating a volatile world of junkies, thieves, and johns, Mike takes Scott on a quest along the grungy streets and open highways of the Pacific Northwest, in search »

China Box Office: ‘Tiny Times 4.0′ Opens on Top

13 July 2015 7:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tiny Times 4.0” stormed the Chinese box office with an opening four day weekend of $58.4 million. It took top spot in the chart and deposed Chen Kaige’s “Monk Comes Down a Mountain,” which ruled for just one week.

The new film had the best opening of any of the tween-oriented “Tiny Times” movies and achieved that score despite the lowest per-ticket average price — $5 – of any of the top ten movies. To achieve that total it sold 11.7 million tickets, according to data from Entgroup.

Distributors have kept the franchise humming through smart use of big data and social media. They are now reported to be planning another canny move: the release of an ‘extended version’ later this week.

“Monk” saw a 41% week on week slip and earned $22.9 million as it slipped to second place. After 11 days its cumulative total stands at $60.7 million.

New opener “Monkey King: Hero Is Born” debuted in »

China Box Office: ‘Monk Comes Down The Mountain’ Leads Weekend

6 July 2015 8:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chen Kaige’s “Monk Comes Down The Mountain” took top spot at the Chinese box office, knocking “Jurassic World” from the perch it enjoyed for two weeks.

Chen’s conventional, but light, martial arts action drama earned a solid $38.2 million in four days from 5.83 million admissions, according to data from Ent Group. The picture has many of the ingredients for success – it is based on a well-known series of novels, has a starry cast that includes Aaron Kwok, supermodel turned actress Lin Chiling, and “Lost in Thailand”’s Wang Baoqiang, playing against type.

The film also benefits from the annual summer blackout period which is largely reserved for the releases of new Chinese titles. With the period starting in mid-June this year, new Hollywood films seem unlikely to be released until the end of July.

The waning competition from Hollywood saw “Jurassic World” lose 50% and slide to third place as »

'20 Feet from Stardom' closes out a two-year awards run with a Grammy

8 February 2015 3:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last year's Oscar winner for Best Documentary Feature, "20 Feet From Stardom," has rounded out its long awards run beginning as a competition player way back at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival with a Grammy for Best Music Film. The doc, which won countless other prizes from critics and festivals last year, zipped past the competition including "Beyoncé & Jay Z: On the Run Tour," Coldplay's "Ghost Stories," "Metallica Through the Never" and Pink's "The Truth About Love Tour: Live from Melbourne." It was the only traditional feature documentary in the bunch so it's little surprise it stood out to voters. As previously reported, movie crossover winners at the Grammys this year included "Frozen's" hit track "Let It Go" and compilation soundtrack album, Pharrell's "Happy" from "Despicable Me 2" for Best Music Video, Glen Campbell's "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" for Best Country Song as well as Alexandre Desplat ("The »

Vulture’s 2015 Grammy Predictions

6 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Trying to predict the Grammys is a mug's game: There are so many dang awards, the October-to-September eligibility period makes zero sense, and you're never sure when the voters will just say, "Screw it" and hand an award to a bunch of old white guys whose band broke up 30 years ago. Which is what makes it fun! In a year when most of the eventual Oscar winners have been locked in since December, it's fun to watch an awards show where nobody has any idea what's going to happen. This year, as in all years, there's only one guarantee: The winners will make people mad. But which ones will make people maddest? Read our predictions to see!Best Pop Vocal AlbumColdplay, Ghost Stories Miley Cyrus, BangerzAriana Grande, My Everything Katy Perry, PrismEd Sheeran, XSam Smith, In the Lonely HourWho Will Win: Sam Smith.
