Fire Causes ‘Significant’ Damage on Set of History’s ‘Knightfall’ in Prague

26 August 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A fire has broken out on the Prague set of History Channel’s “Knightfall,” produced by A&E Studios.

Czech television network CT24 tweeted photos of the blaze, which reportedly erupted on one of the exterior sets for the series, centered around the mysterious Knights Templar. The show is filming at Prague’s Barrandov Studios, with photos from CT24 showing a constructed Medieval castle ablaze, in addition to other exteriors.

Nicolas Winding Refn Teases That Action Flick ‘The Avenging Silence’ Will Have Some William Burroughs Flavor

17 August 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I thought it would be fun to do a big extravagant action film,” Nicolas Winding Refn said earlier this year about his brewing “The Avenging Silence,” and he’s certainly got the team behind him to help make that happen. Notably, the script will be coming from Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (“Casino Royale,” “Quantum Of Solace,” “Skyfall,” “Spectre“), a fact […]

Trends and the Lack of Originality in Hollywood

13 August 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eric Bay-Andersen on trends and the lack of originality in Hollywood…

At the beginning of this year I went to the cinema and saw a preview of all the big films coming out in 2016, and it really depressed me because almost every upcoming ‘event’ film was a sequel, a re-boot, or a prequel to the re-imagined spin-off of a TV show adaptation! It’s gotten to the point where I even get disheartened by book adaptations, which is silly I know because there are so many great published stories out there that are worthy of being adapted for the big-screen. I guess I just find it sad that most film-makers these days seem to look to the best-sellers list for their inspiration, rather than their own imagination. I mean, if a new book comes out and is a big success, then of course someone will make it into a film at some point, »

Will Daniel Craig's TV Show Keep Him from Returning as James Bond?

12 August 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Right now, the James Bond franchise is in a bit of a holding pattern. Spectre did very well at the box office, but didn't quite live up to the expectations that were put on it by its predecessor Skyfall. It was also reportedly a very long and tumultuous shoot, which put some wear and tear on star Daniel Craig. For months, there have been rumors and whispers of the actor walking away from the role of 007, but there is still hope he will return. Well, at the very least, his new gig shouldn't get in the way should he decided that he does want to return as Bond one more time.

Daniel Craig will be playing one of the lead roles in the upcoming Showtime series Purity. There had been some speculation that due to his schedule for the series, it would interfere with him being able to return to »

Giveaway – Win Men & Chicken on Blu-ray

8 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the release of Men & Chicken on DVD & Blu-ray – out August 15th. We have teamed up with Arrow Films to giveaway a copy!

Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) proves once again that he’s one of Europe’s top on-screen talents, playing one of two brothers who travel to a remote island to find the strange truth about their family.

From the mind of celebrated Danish filmmaker Anders Thomas Jensen (The Green Butchers), this dark comedy is hilarious but often bizarre, packed with razor- sharp dialogue and oddball characters – all brought to life by a stellar cast of character actors, recognisable from hit Scandi television shows. A success on its U.S. release and number one hit in Denmark, Men & Chicken is the most unique, fun and disturbing comedy you’ll see this year.

Order now via Amazon.

The competition closes at midnight on Sunday, August 21st. UK readers only please. »

Preacher Season 1 Episode 10 Review – ‘Call and Response’

6 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the season one finale of Preacher…

Interrogation scenes are nasty. Half the time any punishment metered out is never seen only heard, because to be effective an audience imagination remains essential. Let me remind the men of Casino Royale when Craig is tied to that chair and his man parts are discreetly tucked beneath. A more clinical example of anticipation and imagination going hand in hand is difficult to come by. For the record I still have trouble watching Royale without instinctively wincing.

With Preacher we have a different kettle of fish. Here the violence escalates and befalls those who in the main had it coming. Where it gets dark and disturbing is when the innocent are inflicted with injury due to circumstance rather than karma. Cassidy falls somewhere between the two, neither completely innocent nor wholly to blame he occupies a grey area with amiable abandon. »

Matt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason Bourne

Matt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason BourneMatt Damon talks returning to the role of Jason BourneColin Covert7/25/2016 3:18:00 Pm

"Why would he come back now?”

So asks Tommy Lee Jones’ stern CIA chief about the surprise return of Jason Bourne, the tough-as-nails rogue field agent played by Matt Damon. After three films where the fugitive agent couldn’t be intercepted, followed by a decade spent off the grid (and movie screens), he’s back for the aptly titled Jason Bourne.

Why would he come back now? Damon, director Paul Greengrass, Universal Studios and a huge fanbase simply wanted to see Bourne born again.

Before Damon played Jason Bourne in director Doug Liman’s 2002 franchise kickoff The Bourne Identity, his career largely consisted of sensitive dramatic parts or supporting comic roles. Few of them showcased the Oscar-winning skills he displayed as co-writer and star of 1997’s Good Will Hunting. »

Comic Book Review – James Bond Vol. 1: Vargr

25 July 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reviews James Bond Vol. 1: Vargr…

 After a mission of vengeance in Helsinki, James Bond returns to London and assumesthe workload of a fallen 00 Section agent. His new mission takes him to Berlin, presumably to break up an agile drug-trafficking operation. But Bond has no idea of the forces gathered in secret against him, the full scope of an operation that’s much scarier and more lethal than he could possibly imagine. Berlin is about to catch fire… and James Bond is trapped inside.

After quite some time in the wilderness, James Bond makes a stylish, triumphant return in comic book form with Vargr, the first six-part series now available in trade, from writer Warren Ellis and artist Jason Masters. It’s the opening salvo from Dynamite Entertainment, having purchased a ten year license from Ian Fleming Publications to produce 007 comics, a body who themselves requested Ellis come »

Dynamite announces new James Bond miniseries Hammerhead

19 July 2016 11:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the news that Dynamite Entertainment is to produce comic book adaptations of Ian Fleming’s 007 novels, starting with Casino Royale, the publisher has announced the upcoming six-issue miniseries James Bond: Hammerhead, from writer Andy Diggle and artist Luca Casalanguida.

“I have never been more thrilled to take charge of a character. James Bond has been with me from childhood, and his influence runs through almost everything I’ve ever written,” states Diggle. “Like all truly iconic characters, Bond remains timeless, reinventing himself for each new generation while remaining true to the core of Ian Fleming’s original creation. By bringing the Bond of the novels into the present-day world, with all its challenges and complexities, we get the best of both worlds – Fleming’s dispassionate ‘blunt instrument’ in a post-Cold War landscape of mass surveillance, drone strikes and WMDs.”

“I’m delighted to be working again with Andy Diggle, »

Dynamite expanding James Bond line, starting with Casino Royale adaptation

18 July 2016 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that it is expanding its line of James Bond comics with adaptations of Ian Fleming’s original novels, starting – appropriately – with 007’s first adventure, Casino Royale.

“When we first announced Warren Ellis’ breakout original James Bond series, we teased that this would only be the beginning of our relationship with the character and the Fleming family, who have been very generous,” said Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci. “To announce that we have been granted the rights to adapt the original presentation of 007? It’s incredibly rewarding, as it’s the treasured story that any publisher would wish to add to their library. We have been very fortunate to be granted the rights to do so.”

Casino Royale will be written by Van Jensen (Green Lantern Corps), with art from Matthew Southworth. Expect more details at Comic-Con this week.

Mads Mikkelsen Talks 'Doctor Strange' and 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

14 July 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Mikkelsen in a promo photo from NBC's "Hannibal."

Mads Mikkelsen, who crossed over when he played the villain Le Chiffre in Daniel Craig's inaugural James Bond outing, Casino Royale, is about to have a monster year. With mysterious roles in two different blockbusters that serve as the latest entries in the two biggest properties in Hollywood- Marvel and Star Wars- he's about to be seen by a lot of people.

The actor recently sat down with Digital Spy to promote a movie that couldn't be more different from the two titans he's set to appear in- Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film is called Men And Chicken, and it's a low-budget Danish black comedy. A very different animal, indeed.

During the interview, comparisons are drawn between his experience with Men And Chicken and what it was like to work on Doctor Strange and Rogue One. »

Matt Damon Fully Expects Jason Bourne To Be Recast Further Down The Line

11 July 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

No matter how much praise The Bourne Identity and its two subsequent sequels drew for injecting fresh blood into the action genre with their slick, arresting editing and intelligent narrative, Jason Bourne has and always will owe a debt to James Bond – even if one could argue that the likes of Casino Royale and Skyfall were in turn informed by Universal’s blockbuster tentpole.

Whatever side of the fence you fall on, Matt Damon believes the studio’s Bourne franchise could take a leaf out of 007’s book when it ultimately recasts its title role, something Damon himself wouldn’t be opposed to.

Doing the press rounds for Paul Greengrass’ imminent franchise revival, THR quizzed Damon about the possibility of one day moving on from the series:

“The only control I can exercise is over the [Bourne movies] that I’m part of. I’m the curator of them as long as »

The 21 Best TV Episodes of 2016 (So Far)

Warning: Spoilers below for the listed shows.  “The Americans

“The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears” (Episode 8)

Time jumps are a tricky business, especially for a show where every moment matters. And on “The Americans,” you better believe the devil is in the details. So Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields’ choice to jump forward seven months after a particularly tough stretch for everyone’s favorite secret agents was a damn ballsy move — that paid off big time. That being said, the opening of Episode 8 was just as important as its ending, and just as tricky. Told in nearly absolute silence, Phillip’s ride to the airfield with Martha set a stark tone for what was coming, making it all the more believable the Jennings would need a seven-month vacation soon after.

In appreciation of Eva Green, one of Hollywood's great underutilized assets

6 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first real rabid Penny Dreadful fan I talked to was Greg Ellwood here at HitFix. He was a steadfast believer the entire time it was on the air, and he encouraged me to watch it. I was busy cutting the cord, though, moving away from cable subscriptions. I had no cable in the house, none in my office, and chose not to watch anything on TV. I used Hulu, Netflix, HBO Now, Amazon Prime. And if a show didn’t land in one of the services I used, then it just went on a list of things to watch someday. Maybe. Today is that day for Penny Dreadful for me. After Greg, the person who really picked up that ongoing advocacy for the show was Brian Duffield, who shares my deep abiding love of Eva Green’s work, and he has always been insistent that I was missing some »

Nicolas Winding Refn Was Approached To Direct Daniel Craig In Spectre

4 July 2016 1:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Coming off the back of Skyfall, director Sam Mendes remained coy about his chances of returning at the helm for Spectre – then known as Bond 24. History tells us that the Oscar-winning filmmaker eventually signed along the dotted line, but amid the uncertainty, Sony and MGM drew up a shortlist of potential replacements; one of them being Drive and Only God Forgives director Nicolas Winding Refn.

Doing the press rounds for The Neon Demon – press rounds that have also unveiled the director’s ambition to helm a Batgirl movie, not to mention his close encounter with Wonder Woman – the Danish auteur confirmed to The Telegraph that he had been approached to take the reins of Spectre at one point.

Refn doesn’t delve into too much detail, instead allowing talk to turn toward his own spy movie, The Avenging Silence. Boasting a script from Neal Purvis and Robert Wade – who, incidentally, »

How Daniel Craig’s Gloves Nearly Cost ‘Skyfall’ Millions of Dollars

4 July 2016 6:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Many widely consider Skyfall to be one of the top-tier Daniel Craig/James Bond entries — tied or beaten only by Casino Royale. Stunning cinematography by Roger Deakins and Sam Mendes‘ assured direction make for a strong outing in a long-standing franchise, one that seems like all players were on point and fully game. However, a new behind-the-scenes story released through Twitter by Charlie Lyne suggests all was not so peachy in the director’s chair.

The story posits that both Mendes and Craig were both bored and miserable throughout production, with mass studio needs weighing down on them to make the biggest, baddest, and most profitable Bond flick they could. During a particularly memorable sequence in a casino, Craig wore gloves he found himself and requested be worn by Bond. However, when an assistant editor spotted a continuity error, it would potentially cost the studio millions. So, the VFX team had to improvise, »
