Hannibal Season 3 Directors Include Neil Marshall & Vincenzo Natali, Four Episode Titles Revealed

23 March 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Neil Marshall and Vincenzo Natali: horror hounds know the former for his directing of The Descent, Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, and more, while the latter brought Splice, Haunter, Cube, and the "U is for Utopia" segment of ABCs of Death 2 to life on the big screen. These two creative horror genre minds bring their skills to the always dangerous dinner table of NBC's Hannibal, as showrunner Bryan Fuller has revealed Marshall and Natali directed select episodes of the third season. Also unveiled are the titles of four season three episodes, one of which should sound very familiar to fans of Thomas Harris' 1981 novel and the 2002 (second) film adaptation of the same name.

On his Twitter page, Fuller announced that Vincenzo Natali directed the first three episodes of Hannibal Season 3, respectively titled "Antipasto", "Primavera", and "Secondo." Fuller then revealed that Neil Marshall helmed "The Great Red Dragon", the eighth episode of season three. »

Hannibal Season 3 Opener Packed With Surprises; Neil Marshall And Vincenzo Natali Will Direct

23 March 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Legions of dedicated Hannibal fans have suffered an agonizing wait since the show’s season 2 finale. A bloody, savage closer, it hinted at a brand new era for the series which is set to debut its third season in a little over two months.

From the small spatter of details revealed via casting announcements and teaser posters, it’s been fun assembling a rough image of what to expect from season 3. There’s been a time-hop tease, a nudge toward territory previously broached in the movie adaptations, and the biggest drop of all from series creator Bryan Fuller, who jokingly referenced the “second biggest” character in the entire Hanni-verse making an appearance.

Fuller’s propensity for dishing the dirt on his creation continued last night over on Twitter. In a series of hint-heavy Tweets, he revealed a wealth of new info on the show’s forthcoming season 3.

'Hannibal' Season 3 Posters Announce June 4 Premiere Date

7 March 2015 7:03 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

NBC has announced a June 4th return date for Hannibal, releasing two new posters. The first shows Dr. Maurier (Gillian Anderson) taking in the sights during her European "vacation" with Dr. Lecter. The second poster shows Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) himself suited up on a new ride. Together, these images tease what could be the best run of episodes yet.

As Hannibal moves into Season 3, it's clear that the original Thomas Harris novels Hannibal and Hannibal Rising will continue to be used in furthering the overarching narrative. This time out, Dr. Lecter and his partner Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier will find themselves chased throughout Europe by Will Graham (Hugh Dancy). The story picks up nearly a year after the violent events witnessed in the Hannibal Season 2 finale.

There are plenty of new casting additions in Season 3. Richard Armitage will play the infamous Francis Dolarhyde, the serial killer also known as The Tooth Fairy from Red Dragon. »

Hannibal Season 3 To Premiere In June; New Poster Lands

6 March 2015 2:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nuzzled deep within NBC’s summer schedule announcement lurks a piece of news that fans of Bryan Fuller’s dark serial killer drama (fannibals?) Hannibal have been desperate to hear: its season 3 release date. Our next scheduled visit to the compelling, twisted and downright bloody world of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter will be on Thursday, June 4th.

Alongside this exciting reveal came another brilliant tease from Fuller himself, as the show’s creator took to Twitter to post a new one-sheet poster for the upcoming season:

Tuck In #HannibalReturnsJune4 @GillianA pic.twitter.com/Pq51nbTBCa

Bryan Fuller (@BryanFuller) March 6, 2015

The poster shows Gillian Anderson, who was recently promoted to series regular, clutching onto an umbrella as Bedelia. Does the accompanying caption suggest that Bedelia is about to have a snack? Or is she about to become someone’s snack?

Whatever fate has in store for her, the upcoming season »

Best Picture 1991 – The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

18 February 2015 11:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the Oscars this weekend, the Flickering Myth writing team look back at some of the previous Best Picture winners. First up, Helen Murdoch looks back at 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs

Winner of the Big 5 Academy Awards – Actor, Actress, Adapted Screenplay, Director and Picture – The Silence of the Lambs is a twisted thriller that has endeared for over 20 years. Helmed by Jonathan Demme, The Silence of the Lambs is the second of the Hannibal novels and follows Clarice Starling as she hunts serial killer Buffalo Bill with the help of imprisoned killer Hannibal Lecter. From its opening shot through the cold woods through to the first meeting with Lecter and its pitch black crescendo, it’s a film that doesn’t let up and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.

In a year that saw The Silence of the Lambs go up against Beauty & the Beast, »

Re-Viewed: Michael Mann introduces Hannibal in Manhunter

17 February 2015 10:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Last month it was announced that Richard Armitage (The Hobbit's Thorin) is to play Frances Dolarhyde in season 3 of NBC's hit TV series Hannibal. Dolarhyde, a serial killer who leaves bite marks on his victims and is thus granted the nom de plume The Tooth Fairy, will reportedly feature in a six-episode arc touching upon the events of Red Dragon.

It was Red Dragon, both Thomas Harris's 1991 novel and Brett Ratner's 2002 movie, that many articles referenced when reporting the Armitage news, with scribes recalling Ralph Fiennes's haunting portrayal of the home-invasion killer who slays entire families. Less common, but more discerning, were the recollections of Tom Noonan's towering, heavyweight (6'7" and 217lb, to be exact) take on Dolarhyde in Michael Mann's atmosphere-drenched 1986 adaptation, Manhunter.

Mann's movie might have jettisoned Harris's title to avoid confusion with Year of the Dragon, which flopped the previous year, and »

Hannibal season 3 delayed until summer 2015

16 February 2015 2:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Catching up on Hannibal news from last month: season three won't arrive on NBC until this summer...

Whether it's technically a delay or just how things are unrolling for Hannibal season three, the show's Television Critics' Association panel held last month confirmed that Lecter and pals won't be back on NBC until the summer. This might be old news to many, but we missed it the first time around so reporting it now in the spirit of better late than never.

Seasons one and two of Bryan Fuller's superlative psychological horror show made their debuts in April and February, leading creatures of habit to expect season three to premiere around the same time in the calendar. Not so. They're taking a little extra time with Hannibal's third run, and summer is its pencilled-in Eta.

Bryan Fuller said last year to think of the third season opener essentially as »

Hannibal Spoilers: 10 Most Exciting Moments Still To Come

7 February 2015 7:34 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

NBC

NBC’s Hannibal is the most elegant show about serial killers out there: it’s well written, has a fantastic cast, and is renowned for its visual style.

Originally envisioned as a prequel to Thomas HarrisHannibal Lecter series, Hannibal’s developer Bryan Fuller instead decided that the show would be both an adaptation and re-imagining of the novels. The first two seasons of Hannibal set the stage for future events by showing Will Graham, Dr. Lecter, and Mason Verger’s back-stories, and fans have been feverishly lapping it up.

But Fuller has confirmed that from season three onwards, the series will adapt the novels themselves. Red Dragon, The Silence Of The Lambs, Hannibal, and presumably even Hannibal Rising will soon be reworked for television, and with them fans will see some of their favourite franchise characters and moments on TV for the first time.

Welcome to another horror news round-up! This time around we have an update on the growing cast of Hannibal Season 3 and details on when you can expect to see Salem Season 2 on the small screen and the buzzed-about It Follows on the big screen.

TVLine reports that Glenn Fleshler (True Detective) will play Cordell Doemling, yet another familiar name to fans of Thomas Harris’ books and the Hannibal Lecter movies.

In the 2001 film, Hannibal, Doemling was played by Željko Ivanek.

Jude Law talks Superman and how he was almost Brett Ratner’s Man of Steel

27 January 2015 11:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The film history of Superman has been topsy-turvy to say the least. Laying dormant for nearly two decades after the debacle of Cannon Films’ Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, there were many attempts to ressuciate the Man of Steel before Bryan Singer’s 2006 Superman Returns, and the consequent reboot Man of Steel in 2013.

One director who had hopes of bringing his vision to the screen in the 2000s was director Brett Ratner (Red Dragon, Hercules). He looked set to take the reigns thanks to a script from J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and he was very close to casting his Superman, in the form of Jude Law, who was the director’s first choice.

Law has been very quiet on the project ever since he toyed with the film around 2000-2002, and even tried on the costume, but has broken his silence in a chat with MTV »

Rutina Wesley To Meet The Red Dragon In ‘Hannibal’

24 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

She’s best known for playing the headstrong Tara in True Blood, but for her next role Rutina Wesley encounters a human monster in the third season of Hannibal. Wesley plays Reba McClane, infamous to readers of the Thomas Harris source novels as the woman who got close to Francis Dolarhyde.

Unbeknownst to her, he is the Tooth Fairy, the serial killer at the heart of first Lecter bestseller Red Dragon – however her blindness makes her literally unseeing as to his true nature. Richard Armitage has been cast as Dolarhyde. The characters were portrayed by Emily Watson and Ralph Fiennes in the 2002 movie adaptation and by Joan Allen and Tom Noonan in Michael Mann’s 1986 version Manhunter.

Wesley and Armitage join new cast member Joe Anderson, who replaces Michael Pitt as Mason Verger. It looks like showrunner Bryan Fuller is really starting to blend the worlds of the series and the books, »
