Bryan Fuller Breaks Down The Homoerotic Charge of “Hannibal”

22 April 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

What kind of treatment is Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) giving to Will (Hugh Dancy)?

If there’s one thing that’s true in the television landscape, the worlds created by Bryan Fuller are never boring.

His early writing career includes writing credits on Star Trek: Voyager before he went on to create and produce his own quirky shows like Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me and, of course, Pushing Daisies. And, now, there’s Hannibal, which, looking at Fuller’s previous work, makes perfect sense with its intoxicating blend of crime, horror, humor, romance and, of course, sexuality.

Yes, as you know or can guess, Hannibal is a modern-day prequel telling the story of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who we know primarily from Anthony Hopkins’ Academy Award-wining portrayal in the film, The Silence Of The Lambs. In this TV version, which was developed from the Red Dragon novel by Thomas Harris, Lechter is younger, »

Most Memorable Tattoos Featured in Movies

7 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've recently been circling around the idea of actually getting a tattoo. If I get one, it will be my first. But I've been thinking about some of the tattoos that I've seen in the movies over the years, and I started looking them up online to remind myself of what they looked like. I would never get a tattoo that I saw in a movie, it'd have to be an original design, but I was looking for a little inspiration.

While going through all the movie tattoos that I could think of, I decided to put together a list of some of the most memorable tattoos have been featured on the big screen. Here they are in no particular order.

Reign of Fire - Matthew McConaughey

How many of you forgot about how badass McConaughey was in this dragon slaying action film?! He sported some crazy cool tattoo art in it. »

Pumpkinhead Being Resurrected as a Reboot

3 April 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Around these parts we're Huge fans of the Pumpkinhead creature, but judging from a cinematic standpoint, this big bad has gotten one raw deal after another. The original film was great, and its sequels got progressively more horrid one after the other.

Could this franchise get back on track? It sure couldn't do any worse!

The original Pumpkinhead was produced by the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, headed up by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis went on to produce Hannibal and Red Dragon.

For the rest of the franchise, the Motion Picture Corporation of America (Mpca) headed up by Brad Krevoy took the reins and is now back to produce the rebooted series.

The ’88 film starred Lance Henriksen as a man who conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son.

While Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings is indeed bad, it's watchable »

Funko Announces Vinyl Figures of NBC's 'Hannibal'

31 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

It was in 1981 that Thomas Harris wrote the novel Red Dragon, which introduced us to the characters of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, FBI agent Jack Crawford and criminal profiler Will Graham. Those characters have been seen in a handful films and novels to come in Red Dragon's wake, including Manhunter and Silence of the Lambs, and they've most recently come to life in the Bryan Fuller-created television series Hannibal, which has provided us with perhaps the most interesting depiction of them to date.

At the tail end of last week, Fuller tweeted out the above photograph, revealing that toy company Funko is soon going to be putting out a series of toys inspired by the show, as part of their ever-expanding Funko Pop! Vinyl line. Lecter, Crawford, Graham and even the creepy 'Stagman' all get the vinyl treatment, with a bloody Lecter variant being made available exclusively at this year's San Diego Comic Con. »

Hannibal: Season Two Ratings

29 March 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, NBC renewed Hannibal for a second season -- despite poor ratings. This time around, it's on Friday nights. Will the ratings be good enough for it to be renewed for a third season or, will it be cancelled instead. Stay tuned to find out.

Based on the Red Dragon novel by Thomas Harris, Hannibal revolves around the early relationship between FBI investigator Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), a forensic psychiatrist who becomes an infamous cannibalistic serial killer. Others in the cast of this thriller series include Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Laurence Fishburne, Scott Thompson, and Aaron Abrams.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available »

New Images From ‘Hercules’

24 March 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson takes his next film, Hercules, quite seriously. He considers it the role of a lifetime, where he gets to play- as he calls it- “the first superhero.” The megastar has had plenty to say, and to show, regarding this new take on Hercules in recent months, including this:

He posted that photo along with these words:

“I trained and worked harder than ever for 8 months for this role. Lived alone and locked myself away (like a moody 260lb monk) in Budapest for 6 months while filming. Goal was to completely transform into this character. Disappear in the role. Press journalist asked me today, with the mental & physical toll the role had on me, would I do it again? Not only would I do it again.. I’d do it f*cking twice. You’ll be the first to see the Exclusive #Hercules trailer one week from today. »

First Images Of Dwayne Johnson From Brett Ratner’s ‘Hercules’

23 March 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Earlier this year we saw the Greek legend Hercules come alive in The Legend Of Hercules. The film grossed over $18 million, but o a budget of $70 million, it was hardly anything to write home about. Let’s hope that Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson as the eponymous hero does a lot better. Directed by Rush Hour and Red Dragon director Brett Ratner, the film is taking a grounded look at the legend without any mythological or supernatural undertones. It follows Hercules after he completes his 12 Labours and is hired to train an army.

Speaking to USA today, Johnson said:

The No. 1 goal is to make the definitive version of Hercules.  We know we’re going to be under a microscope.

Hercules is released in the Us on 25th July and in the UK on 8th August. It stars Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Joseph Fiennes, Ian McShane and Rufus Sewell.

The Last Of Us Movie: 11 Actors Who Could Play Joel

10 March 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Naughty Dog

The Naughty Dog masterpiece The Last of Us will be getting the big screen treatment courtesy of Screen Gems, who are responsible for bringing the Resident Evil franchise to cinemas worldwide. Key members of Naughty Dog will write the film alongside the Evil Dead mastermind himself, Sam Raimi providing himself as producer. At this time, there is no one set to direct the picture. There is no doubt that this adaptation will be on a lot of people’s radars in the coming months, particularly because everyone will be wondering who will snag the coveted roles of the game’s protagonists, Joel and Ellie.

Like any other form of fictional media, people take the time to invest in characters like Joel and Ellie, and the characters themselves are very special to the fans. There is bound to be a lot of discussion among people about the casting.

With that being said, »

Hannibal 2.01 Review: “Kaiseki”

For those who had the misfortune of missing the first season of Hannibal last year (and there were many, based on the low ratings), NBC has done a huge service for television by giving Bryan Fuller at least thirteen more episodes of his prequel adaptation of Thomas Harris’ novel, Red Dragon. Not only was Hannibal the best new [&hellip

Review: NBC's 'Hannibal' serves up delicious second course

27 February 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The easiest way to appreciate the greatness of NBC's "Hannibal," which begins its second season tomorrow night at 10, is to look at almost any of the other serial killer dramas that are littering primetime, from CBS' unkillable "Criminal Minds" to Fox's moronic "The Following" to A&E's upcoming Chloe Sevigny-waster "Those Who Kill." There are too many of these shows, and almost all of them get off on the same fetishized scenes of bound-and-gagged victims whimpering while their leering abductor prepares to do something horrible to them, and almost all of them feature heroes who often seem too stupid to function, the better to allow their cackling opponents free rein. HBO's brilliant "True Detective" has managed to sidestep most of these sick, tired landmines by focusing almost entirely on its two heroes and what motivates them, avoiding graphic imagery whenever possible, and leaving its killer as an unseen bogeyman »

Hannibal Season 2: 6 Things That Will Happen Next

27 February 2014 6:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Predicting what will happen in a series called ‘Hannibal’ almost seems like a futile exercise. We’ve all seen Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal.  Some of us may have even read the Thomas Harris novels.

One of the things the Bryan Fuller television series pulled off so well though was making Hannibal Lecter almost seem new to us. The preconceptions were there for us all, we knew that Hannibal was a cannibal, and this was teased throughout early episodes with some gloriously edited moments. What was fun as viewers was learning about Hannibal Lecter’s early relationship with Will Graham (ably played by Hugh Dancy) and also learning more about Will himself.

For most of us, our only exposure to FBI Profiler Graham was from Edward Norton’s comparatively vanilla portrayal in Red Dragon. The Will Graham we got in Season One of Hannibal was a »

Edward Norton Heads To Motherless Brooklyn

20 February 2014 3:11 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Getting your passion project off the ground can be a frustrating grind of networking, failed financing bids and frustration, even if you're a known name in the film business. If you do drag it to the screen, the results – as Akiva Goldsman and A New York Winter’s Tale could testify – don’t always turn out as well as you might hope. Still, people keep trying, such as Edward Norton with Motherless Brooklyn.Norton has been attempting to get his adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s book made since he optioned it around the time he was nominated for an Oscar for American History X (so, 1999). After years of struggling to drum up interest and, more importantly, money, Norton has found a partner in his Red Dragon director Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment.The film version will switch up the time period for the book, sending Lethem’s main character Lionel »

Video: Cinematographer Dante Spinotti on Shooting Michael Mann’s ‘Manhunter’

12 February 2014 10:08 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In 1986, Mann was the first to bring Thomas Harris’s character of Hannibal Lecter to the screen with Manhunter, and his adaptation of the novel Red Dragon, is a disturbing examination of voyeurism. Writer/director Michael Mann’s measured approach pays off in spades. Manhunter is a clever race-against-time flick, in which the ticking of the clock is measured in Will’s attempt to retain his own sanity as he forces himself to think more and more like his quarry. Mann lays on the style thick with contrasting colour schemes to the seemingly contrary actions of his central characters, and cinematographer Dante Spinotti employs specific colours to emphasize emotional and jointed parallels. Mann and Spinotti deftly employ colour to heighten mood resulting in creating tension and uncertainty in the unlikeliest of settings. Graham is mostly shot in minimalist hues of blues and blacks contrasting sharply with the Lector’s clinical »

Is Hannibal the best network TV series in years?

11 February 2014 10:50 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Laura Akers 12 Feb 2014 - 07:00

Laura thinks so, and urges viewers to catch up with Hannibal's complex, exquisite first season before its return...

Last year, I reviewed Hannibal for Den of Geek, and like any writer, posted links to my articles on my Facebook page for my friends. Unlike any other series I’ve written and shared about, Hannibal is the one that friends ask me about the most, usually something along the lines of “How can you watch something so gruesome?”

To be fair, I have to admit that what most people call gore - by which they really just mean “blood and guts” - has never bothered me. As a child, I fell in love with the late 70s television show Quincy, and for years wanted to be forensic pathologist; I saw my first autopsy at thirteen. And I can watch open-heart surgery while eating a medium-rare steak. »

Guest Blog: Author Michael Connelly on Bringing Harry Bosch to the Screen

10 February 2014 11:31 AM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Neal Thompson is Senior Editor at Amazon Books. He is also a journalist & author, amateur photographer/videographer, and compulsive reader-writer. Neal interviewed Michael Connelly, creator of Bosch, a new Amazon Original Pilot.

In 1992, a seasoned crime reporter named Michael Connelly published his first novel, the story of a body in a drainpipe, a bank robbery, and police corruption, based partly on a true crime that had occurred in La. Featuring Hieronymous “Harry” Bosch, a Vietnam vet turned Lapd detective, The Black Echo won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel, established Connelly as a new voice in the mystery/thriller world and Bosch as one of the more complex characters in modern crime fiction.

Now, more than a dozen novels later, Bosch is coming to the little screen. Amazon Studios has produced the first episode in a hoped-for series entitled Bosch, co-written by Connelly and with Titus Welliver (who has »
