The long wait to find out who survived The Red Dinner (aka Hannibal’s spectacular season two finale, Mizumono) is almost over. Hannibal season three is nearly upon us, and to mark its arrival, we caught up with showrunner Bryan Fuller to find out what’s in store.
Firstly, we’re due to meet a different kind of Hannibal in a very different kind of setting. Fuller’s James Bond fandom has leached into the first seven-episode chapter of the season, which sees Mads Mikkelsen’s chicly dressed predator living undercover in the upper echelons of Italian society. The season’s second six-episode chapter introduces Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, a character familiar to Red Dragon fans.
We chatted to Fuller about the show’s revised take on Hannibal’s origin story, »
One of the most under-appreciated shows on television is Bryan Fuller's Hannibal. The series takes a revisionist approach to telling the stories covered in the films Red Dragon, The Silence Of The Lambs, Hannibal, and Hannibal Rising all while using a very distinct visual style that is scarier and more disturbing than almost anything on television. Unlike the pulpy Bates Motel series, Hannibal is as high class as it's title character. When season three premieres in a few weeks, Hannibal is »

Nearly 13 years ago, a British Army unit discovered what lives in the shadows in Neil Marshall's feature film directorial debut, Dog Soldiers, and this summer Scream Factory is revisiting what that doomed group encountered with their Dog Soldiers Collector’s Edition Blu-ray / DVD. First announced in 2013, the anticipated release has been pushed back more than once to ensure it's the best possible final version. At long last, the beloved werewolf film will come out on June 23rd and it will be well worth the wait, as the newly revealed special features are enough to make horror hounds drool and howl at the moon with pleasure.
Press Release -- "Six Men. Full Moon. No Chance. The terrifying thriller Dog Soldiers gets the Scream Factory treatment with a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack available June 23rd, 2015. Fans who order their copy from ShoutFactory.com will receive an exclusive Dog Soldiers poster, »

Seville Pictures has announced the stunning cast list for the film, which includes Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night), Lea Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Color), Vincent Cassel (Black Swan), Nathalie Baye (Tell No One) and Gaspard Ulliel (Hannibal Rising).
Word on the grapevine has Dolan’s next film as The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, which was to star Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year), but it seems that project is on the backburner for now. Only the End of the World is apparently inspired by a Jean-Luc Lagarce play that tells the story of writer who, after a 12-year stint away, returns home to tell his family of his impending death. »

With season 3 of Hannibal right around the corner, a brand new motion poster has landed to further whet your appetite for the show’s return. Seeing as it’s been a good long while since that first trailer arrived, this delightful animated artwork (via Mashable) is a perfect palate cleanser until the next one arrives.
Decked out in his motorcycle leathers, the titular cannibal is front and center of this newest tease, which only requires a tiny amount of ‘motion’ to truly unnerve. Played by Mads Mikkelsen, who was last spotted quickly exiting a house full of dying people lying around groaning in pools of blood, the murderous Dr. Lecter will also be at the fore of the upcoming season. Albeit on a new continent.

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.

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.
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?

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 »
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 Harris’ Hannibal 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.
That’s not to »

In the first teaser trailer for season 3, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) obsessively still on the hunt of Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) in what we assume is Florence, Italy. In the new season, both Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon will get a new literal re-telling, with showrunner Bryan Fuller, the series will mash up elements from the books in a unique way—including revealing a very different origin story for the good doctor.
It will be a while before dinner is served, but for now you can enjoy this appetising entrée until the new season debuts this summer.

If it's one thing we love, more than dear family members and this great United States of America, it's NBC's "Hannibal." The operatic horror series, based on the Thomas Harris novels that also inspired "Silence of the Lambs," "Manhunter," and, yes, "Hannibal" (sorry if this is getting confusing), is one of the most visually striking, emotionally riveting and just-plain-scary television series to ever hit the small screen. All of this makes the wait in between seasons downright torturous, especially since it was recently announced that the show wouldn't return until summer. And thanks to a new trailer for the third season that NBC has just unleashed, well, that wait is going to be even harder.
The show, of course, follows the adventures of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), a murderous shrink who is involved in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with an FBI profiler named Will Graham (Hugh Dancy). For »

After months of nothing, the first trailer for season three of Hannibal is finally here. It's characteristically creepy but sadly lacking in the food porn we've come to expect and love from the show. Hannibal is on the run from Will, taking us outside the greater Baltimore area to Florence, Italy. According to Entertainment Weekly, we can expect to see elements from Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon this season. We've still got awhile to go, though - the show isn't returning until Summer. Take a first look at the upcoming season below. »
Much like the culinary prowess of its compelling villain, the build-up to Hannibal season 3 has required a delicate balance of ingredients. The threat of the show’s cancellation loomed over fans until NBC optioned the gritty thriller for a third season, and tidbits surrounding the latest additions to its cast dripped through slowly until EW finally debuted the upcoming season’s first teaser trailer earlier today. All in all, our appetites have been whetted. Now we’re ready to eat.
The third year of NBC’s dark, brooding show finds troubled FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) in hot pursuit of the charismatic Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). The dark, shadowy teaser only hints at the extent of Will’s determination in tracking down the cannibalistic serial killer. Remaining loyal to the tone of the show, the teaser avoids flashy extravagance, opting instead to burn out slow with scattered shots of »

"Hannibal" fans must be downright salivating by now. After the will-they-or-won't-they waiting period regarding the NBC series' cancellation, fannibals rejoiced at the renewal news in May 2014. Then it was announced at Comic Con in July that the third season would mind the novels of "Hannibal" and "Hannibal Rising," before starting the "Red Dragon" plot late in the season. Creator Bryan Fuller even teased the appearance of Clarice Starling, or at least mentioned their goal to include the second-most-famous character of Thomas Harris' novels. Add to the fervor a growing cast, including everyone's favorite "X-Files" actress Gillian Anderson, and anticipation for Season 3 had to boiling over. But then NBC turned down the heat last week during its TCA presentation, when it announced plans to push the premiere date back to this summer. Consider this an apology. Below you'll find the first trailer for "Hannibal" »

If you're into dark and creepy and you're not watching NBC's "Hannibal," you're missing out on some of the best and creepiest TV currently out there. The cat and mouse mental (and physical) chase between Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is nothing short of spectacular. Almost as spectacular as the fact that the show, which is scheduled to return this summer, is still on network TV.
The third season will incorporate aspects of Thomas Harris' "Hannibal Rising" and "Red Dragon" and will follow Will as he hunts for Lecter in Europe. Details are vague (exactly how we like it) but the trailer is gorgeous and creepy, continuing the trend of the show's stunning good looks.

Ready for an amuse-bouche from Hannibal season three? Below is a teaser trailer with the first batch of footage from the third season of NBC's acclaimed, cult-favorite thriller. The trailer shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) obsessively hunting Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) in what we assume is Florence, Italy. Expect the new season to mine elements from Thomas Harris' Hannibal novels, including Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon. According to showrunner Bryan Fuller, the series will mash up elements from the books in a unique way—including revealing a very different origin story for the good doctor. Though you're going to »

He will play Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a. the Tooth Fairy, on Season 3 of the psychological horror series, adapted from Thomas Harris’s popular novels “Hannibal,” “Hannibal Rising” and “The Red Dragon.” He is slated for a six-episode run.
