Hannibal season 3 episode 8 review: Great Red Dragon

22 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Richard Armitage's spectacular performance as Francis Dolarhyde completely reinvigorates Hannibal season three...

This review contains spoilers.

3.8 Great Red Dragon

I have something to confess, to those of you who have not already sussed it out: I am not a Brit. I am an American writing abroad, as it were, which may be my only excuse for the first half of this review. You’ve been warned.

You see, as an American, my exposure to Richard Armitage has been limited to what little of his work has crossed the pond and made itself easily accessible (thank you, BBC America), especially since my time living in England ended just as his star began to rise. Thus, short of his turns as Guy of Gisborne and Thorin, I haven’t had the opportunity to appreciate his skill as an actor.

And I enjoyed him a great deal in those roles. He’s »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

Comic-Con 2015: Interviews with the Cast of MTV’s Scream TV Series

14 July 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The tensions are rising along with the body count on MTV's Scream TV series, and last week at Comic-Con, Daily Dead took part in roundtable interviews with the show's cast, who discussed mixing creepy moments with comedy, the original Scream films, and much more.

Amadeus Serafini on his suspicious, new-in-town character, Kieran Wilcox:

"He's the brooding type. He is the new kid in town. He just lost his folks a few weeks back and that's the introduction to Lakewood, and he very much makes a move on Willa [Fitzgerald's] character Emma, and has a clash where it becomes a love triangle between Connor [Weil's] character, Will, Emma, and himself. That's pretty much all I can reveal for the time being and you're going to see how it unfolds over the course of this series."

Serafini on whether or not his parents' deaths were truly an accident:

"You're going to have to wait and see. »

Hannibal season 3 episode 6 review: Dolce

13 July 2015 2:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dr Lecter is by no means the only threat in Hannibal, thanks to those he has remade in his image...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 Dolce

In writing these reviews, I do my best to stay away from the books on which Hannibal is based. A good portion of this is because I don’t want the reviews or the comments that follow to sink into a simple comparison of how faithful one is—or should be—to the other, nor which is the superior telling. Another aspect of it is that Hannibal must, and should, stand on its one merits and knowing the books should not be necessary to understand or appreciate the series.

I’m going to utterly fail in this endeavour this week. But, really, I don’t think you can blame me.

Red Dragon Is Upon Us! A Look At The Remainder Of Hannibal Season 3!

12 July 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Watching the evolution of the television interpretation of Hannibal has been a fascinating and rewarding journey. There’s nothing quite like it on TV at the moment. It’s a weekly dose of some of the densest, most intricately plotted, beautifully gory storytelling that you could squeeze into a single hour. And while the first season took a bit to find it’s footing, or at least for us, the audience to get used to these alternate versions of characters we already know so well from books and movies, Hannibal has become a “must watch” for genre fans. Season 2 is up there as one of the best sophomore seasons of a show ever. Personally, I’m conflicted on this currently-in-progress 3rd season. I’m sure once all is said and done, I’ll revisit it and love it. Part of it is we’re treading on extremely familiar territory. The »

Hannibal: 15 Things to Know about the Show’s Fate

12 July 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Anyone hoping that Hannibal's Comic-Con appearance would have a big announcement about how the show will continue—after being canceled by NBC, and passed on by Netflix and Amazon—will be disappointed. But Fannibals and press hoping to get a jovial panel and press conference to reward their fandom with a thoughtful Q&A, and a classy wink at cosplay from show creator Bryan Fuller, were richly rewarded. Hugh Dancy (who plays Will Graham) did acknowledge, “It’s very bittersweet being here. I don’t expect to have an experience of this nature ever again. And I’m not saying that with negativity, the whole experience [has been] profound.” But the mood in the air was certainly filled with a gratitude that they were able to do the show as they pleased. And it was hard to be down while Fuller was smiling broadly and cracking jokes while wearing a Star Wars tuxedo. »

"Hannibal" Could Live On As A Movie

12 July 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC's "Hannibal" dropped one of the most stunning episodes of television of 2015 last week, and is currently in the middle of its third and seemingly final season.

With the cancelled show's chances of being picked up elsewhere looking more dire with each day passing, fans have been hoping someone will offer some kind of reprieve somewhere. Appearing at Comic Con this year, show runner Bryan Fuller told EW that there might be one way - a movie: "I think this finale wraps up the television series in a really good way and also is a platform for a launch in a new version of telling the story."

Asked about where the search for a new home for the series currently stands, he says: "We are still looking; we don't have a lot of answers and we're looking at the possibility of a feature. So we have Hugh and Mads, who »

Leon Russell Gets Reflective at 'A Poem is a Naked Person' NYC Opening

Read More: Watch: Bask in the American Glory of the 'A Poem is a Naked Person' Trailer From 1972-1974, documentarian Les Blank spent time with country artist Leon Russell at his studio in Grand Lake, Oklahoma recording hours of video footage for a film project that would later become "A Poem is a Naked Person." However, creative differences and problems with musical copyright stifled the release of the documentary for decades, preventing it from ever receiving theatrical distribution. Following Blank's death in 2013, his son, Harrod, was finally able to complete the film, which debuted earlier this year at South by Southwest. "A Poem is a Naked Person" received its official theatrical opening last night at New York City's Film Forum with Leon Russell in attendance. Afterwards, Academy Award winning director Jonathan Demme ("The Silence of the Lambs") spoke with Russell, Blank and Maureen Gosling, Les Blank's longtime assistant and editor. »

Bryan Fuller Had Asked Jodie Foster to Direct Hannibal

26 June 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

One of the hopes we had for season four of Hannibal was the possible introduction of Clarice Starling, a character made famous by Jodie Foster in The Silence of the Lambs. MGM has the rights to the character, though, and last year, showrunner Bryan Fuller said that he had planned to include Starling and others in his ever-expanding Hannibal universe. “It’s always been tricky with MGM because they have all the characters that originate in Silence of the Lambs, and there are so many, not just Clarice,” Fuller told Vulture on the red carpet at the Saturn Awards Thursday night, where the show took home three awards, including Best Network TV Series. “I want Buffalo Bill. I want to tell the Buffalo Bill story in a way that hasn’t been told before.”Fuller had also joked that they could have a character called “Schmarice Schmarling” as a way around the copyright issue. »

Hannibal: NBC cancellation, season 4 options, the future

25 June 2015 1:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What are the chances we'll see Hannibal season 4 after the NBC cancellation? We take a look at possible avenues for a return...

The news that Bryan Fuller’s horror masterpiece Hannibal has been cancelled by NBC was upsetting, but unsurprising news. Hannibal’s ratings have gone from bad to worse this year, as the series doubled down on the surreal, macabre strangeness that arguably made it so inaccessible to a casual audience in the first place. And while Hannibal has proven itself to be a critical darling with a passionate fan base, it’s honestly a wonder that a show as unique and stubbornly left-of-centre as this one lasted as long as it did on NBC. 

But while the news of the cancellation was met with the requisite anger and disappointment across the internet, the responses from key creatives seemed far from pessimistic about the future of the show. This is, »

Hannibal cancelled by NBC after ratings slump

22 June 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The TV show’s third season, which stars Mads Mikkelsen as cannibal psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter, will be its last due to declining ratings

Hannibal is cancelled but there’s hope he’ll dine again on a streaming network

After three seasons of stylish, critically acclaimed but little-watched gore, NBC has decided that it has had its fill of Hannibal.

The TV series about the cannibal psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter, invented by the thriller writer Thomas Harris and immortalised in the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs, received good reviews but never attained high ratings. Its violent imagery, often displaying corpses artfully arranged and waiting to be eaten by the eponymous antihero, pushed the envelope of what is permissible on network TV.

'Hannibal' Canceled by NBC, But Bryan Fuller Hopes to 'Dine Again'

22 June 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After two full seasons of low ratings and a third season that didn't show marked improvement, NBC has officially axed the critically-hailed series, "Hannibal." "We have been tremendously proud of 'Hannibal' over its three seasons," read a statement released by NBC. "Bryan and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television — broadcast or cable. We thank Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made 'Hannibal' an incredible experience for audiences around the world." Based on Thomas Harris' characters, the horror prequel to "The Silence of the Lambs" lasted longer than many expected. It posted a series low in ratings after its third episode of the new season, a bad omen for an already struggling series, but Fuller still »

'Psycho': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Hitchcock's Classic

15 June 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Besides making people forever afraid of motel-room showers, Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" continues to have an incalculable impact on popular culture. Though it was released 55 years ago this week (on June 16, 1960), it continues to inspire filmmakers and TV producers. In just the last three years, we've seen the 2012 film "Hitchcock" (based on Stephen Rebello's book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho,'" and starring Anthony Hopkins as the director and Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh) and the ongoing A&E TV prequel drama series, "Bates Motel."

Still, for all of the "Psycho" trivia revealed in "Hitchcock," the biopic barely scratches the surface of how the film got made, from the men who inspired the invention of Norman Bates, to the trickery Hitchcock used to tease the press while keeping the film's convention-shredding narrative twists a secret, to the film's unlikely connection to "Leave It to Beaver."

Clarice Starling Could Come To "Hannibal"

9 June 2015 3:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With NBC's "Hannibal" having returned for a third season with a new flavour that's even more unlike anything else on television, the hope is of course that the series will continue for another year.

As we know, the third season is split into two halves - the Italy-set first half, and the second which deals with the "Red Dragon" storyline from the Thomas Harris novels. This begs the obvious question, does that mean "The Silence of the Lambs" storyline will come into play in the fourth season?

Previously show runner Bryan Fuller has been reticent on introducing the Clarice Starling character, partly because of a rights issue which has meant they've been unable to use elements from the 'Silence' novel in the show. The other books ("Red Dragon," "Hannibal," "Hannibal Rising") are all on the table though, and we've already seen their elements incorporated.

Will Fuller be able to work out the 'Silence' rights issue? »
