‘Stranger Things’ to ‘Anne With an E’: The Secret Weapon Behind Netflix’s Latest Stunning Opening Sequence

26 May 2017 5:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Stranger Things” and “Anne with an E” wouldn’t appear to have much in common. But both Netflix series boast iconic and impactful opening sequences created by the same design studio.

Imaginary Forces creative director Alan Williams, whose company earned lauds for its minimalist title design for “Stranger Things,” reached out to Netflix again when he learned that the streaming service was adapting the novel into a series, “Anne with an E.” Like many, Williams grew up captivated by Anne Shirley, the heroine from author Lucy Maud Montgomery’s book “Anne of Green Gables. The lonely orphan had an indomitable spirit, wild imagination, and affinity for the natural world that she brought with her to Green Gables, where she finally found a home.

Hulu’s Best TV Shows About Women Beyond ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ That You Can Stream Right Now

19 May 2017 4:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you haven’t taken advantage of all that Hulu has to offer lately besides “The Handmaid’s Tale” – which everybody should really, really watch right now – then you’re missing out.

“The Handmaid’s Tale’ has been a groundbreaking series for the streaming service, thanks to its foreboding story about a near future in which a portion of the United States has been turned into a theocracy. This new world of Gilead subjugates women and makes the fertile ones become breeders for high-ranking officials. Moving performances by Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski, O-t Fagbenle and Alexis Bledel have made this series a must-watch.

Not only does Hulu have strong original programming like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but it is one of the best places to watch shows that are currently on TV now, which makes cord-cutting that much easier. It also has an impressive catalog of past shows that are well worth revisiting. »

Modern Retelling of “Pride and Prejudice” Acquired by Warner Bros.

20 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Keira Knightley in “Pride & Prejudice”: Focus Features

The only way Elizabeth Bennet could be more over gender roles and pointless class divisions is if she was somehow forced to participate in a Texas debutante ball. Sadly for Lizzie — but happily for us — that’s the premise of Jonah Lisa Dyer and Stephen Dyer’s novel “The Season.” Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has obtained the feature rights to the the modern retelling of Jane Austen’s classic “Pride and Prejudice.”

“The Season” follows Megan, “a clever tomboy and soccer star who’s forced into the elite Dallas debutante season by her mother,” the source summarizes. “The teen’s rebellious behavior and sharp tongue quickly put her on probation. While navigating the cutthroat debutante culture, Megan also juggles a tumultuous romance and a complicated relationship with her perfect twin sister.”

According to Deadline, Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are set to produce the proect. Julia Spiro (“Now You See Me”) originally brought the book to Warner Bros. and Jaclyn Huntling Swatt will oversee development on behalf of Temple Hill. Dyers’ novel was published by Viking Children’s Books in summer 2016.

Temple Hill’s previous Ya adaptations include Shailene Woodley-starrer “The Fault in Our Stars” and the “Twilight” franchise.

Pride and Prejudice” was first published in 1813 and traces the passionate sparring and eventual romance between Miss Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. The beloved book has received dozens of screen adaptations and retellings including the 1995 miniseries toplined by Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, the 2005 feature film starring Keira Knightley, and Sharon Maguire’s 2001 romantic comedy “Bridget Jones’s Diary.” Its most recent iteration was last year’s “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” a supernatural-horror take on the novel toplined by “Downton Abbey’s” Lily James.

Modern Retelling of “Pride and Prejudice” Acquired by Warner Bros. was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängers

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersCelebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersAdriana Floridia4/20/2017 9:40:00 Am

Today is National Look-Alike day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.

Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us. 

The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.

Blast from the past that isn't quite right | Brief letters

Pride and Prejudice | Anachronistic arms | Lido revival | Amazing Crace | Transhumanism | Streetly Co-op

The letter (19 April) about terminally ill patients hanging on to see the end of Pride and Prejudice reminds me of the indignation aroused when (spoiler alert) a picture of the Bennett girls’ double wedding appeared on the front cover of the Radio Times for the week the last episode was due to be broadcast. It had clearly never occurred to the intellectual BBC’s Oxbridge elite that there would be viewers who wouldn’t know how the story ended.

• I wonder if the young Belfast re-enactor posing with a Thompson submachine gun (Remembering rebellion, 17 April, early editions) was aware that this weapon had not yet come into production by 1916? It was certainly used by Republican forces during the war of independence of 1919-21 – and there is even a (questionable) theory that it was developed »

Homo sapiens | Pride and Prejudice | Formula for happiness | Messrs Block and Anderson | The Yotam effect

Homo sapiens is the world’s most productive trader, whatever that means, in an ecosystem teeming with life, writes Christine McNulty (Letters, 17 April). Then why is it that the number of wild animals in the world has declined by over 50% since 1970, and that the rate of extinction of species is now somewhere between 1,000 and 10,000 times the natural background rate? It seems to me that H sapiens is doing its best to destroy the “ecosystem that is teeming with life”, and that this is the consequence largely of free-market capitalism.

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe set report

27 March 2017 3:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Mar 28, 2017

Creepy sets, gore, a sweary Emile Hirsch and lots of gallows humour. We visited the set of indie horror, The Autopsy Of Jane Doe...

Nb: The following contains some saucy language and discussions that some may consider Not Safe For Work.

Half an hour out east on the Hammersmith & City Line, across a busy dual carriage way, just down from a branch of Tesco’s and tucked away in an old warehouse, about 200 people are making a horror film.

The warehouse interior is now, thanks to the ingenuity of production designer Matt Gant and a few dozen set builders, a basement mortuary in Virginia. There are long corridors. Low lighting that picks out the Victorian wallpaper but leaves corners shrouded in deep shadow. A junk-strewn room houses a man-sized furnace, something the production designer jokingly refers to as “the pizza oven”, but is actually a place where »

Amber Heard Recalls Coming Out as Bisexual: "I Became Attached to a Label"

25 March 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Amber Heard has been openly bisexual for years now, but many warned her about the negative effects "coming out" could have on her acting career. While speaking at The Economist's Pride and Prejudice summit panel in NYC on Thursday, The Danish Girl actress revealed she "was never in." "I was in a relationship and I never hid it and then my career and my life started to change," she explained. When asked about her 2010 interview with Ellen DeGeneres in which she talked about her sexuality, she responded, "I just answered honestly. I could tell by the look on this person's face it was a big deal. My poor publicist. Then I realized the gravity of what I had done and why so many people - studio execs, agents, advisors - did not want this coming before my name. I became attached to a label. I've never seen myself defined by the person I'm with. »

Thandie Newton: costume dramas limit roles for black actors in UK

20 March 2017 1:24 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

“I don’t want to play someone who’s being racially abused.”

Thandie Newton said she can’t get roles in Britain because there are so few parts for black actors in historical dramas like Downton Abbey or Call The Midwife.

The Westworld star told The Sunday Times: “I love being here, but I can’t work, because I can’t do Downton Abbey, can’t be in Victoria, can’t be in Call The Midwife - well, I could, but I don’t want to play someone who’s being racially abused.”

“I’m not interested in that, don’t want to do it… there just seems to be a desire for stuff about the Royal Family, stuff from the past, which is understandable, but it just makes it slim pickings for people of colour.”

Newton, set to star in Line Of Duty on BBC One and the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars spin-off, is not the »

A United Kingdom – Review

24 February 2017 5:21 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A United Kingdom is one of those movies where one is compelled to say “based on a true story” lest viewers scoff that such a thing couldn’t happen. Set in the late 1940s, the film is based on a real-life romance between a white middle-class English office worker and an African prince attending college in London but due to return home to ascend as king of his country. In this visually beautiful, romantic historical drama, the two meet, fall in love and marry, which sparks not only outrage in both their families but an international crisis.

The story takes place shortly after World War II, when European colonial powers still controlled most of Africa and apartheid was just taking hold in South Africa. »

The Lrm Interview with A United Kingdom’s Rosamund Pike

13 February 2017 7:30 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hard-working British actress, Rosamund Pike, has remained quite visible in a number of films since her breakout role as “Bond girl” Miranda Frost in Die Another Day. Despite the vast number of films she’s appeared in, Pike only started to really get recognition on these shores when she starred in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, for which Pike received an Oscar nomination.

In between, she could be seen in a wide variety of films that include Pride and Prejudice, Doom, Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, and Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher. After a maternity break, Pike is reunited with another star from that latter film, David Oyelowo, for A United Kingdom from director Amma Assante (Belle).

In the film, Pike plays Ruth Williams, a British working class woman in the ‘40s, who encounters Oyelowo’s Seretse Khama, who happens to be the heir to the king’s thrown of Bechuenaland, »

Bad News: It Turns Out the Real Mr. Darcy Wouldn’t Have Been as Hot as Colin Firth

10 February 2017 7:10 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Much to the dismay of Pride and Prejudice fans everywhere, the real Mr. Darcy would have been no Colin Firth.

For years, film and TV adaptations of the iconic Jane Austen novel have cast as handsome, brooding men in the iconic role of Mr. Darcy. But the authors of a new study into the 19th-century British character suggests he may not have been the dark, tousled haired, strapping hunk we’ve all imagined.

In the new study billed as the first historically accurate portrait of the fictional character, scholars found that Fitzwilliam Darcy would have probably had “sloping shoulders, powdered white hair, »
