Freddy Krueger Launched Dead Ant Star Tom Arnold's Movie Career

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise has helped launch many a film career in Hollywood, including Johnny Depp, Patricia Arquette, and Kelly Rowland, just to name a few. But none more notorious perhaps than the career of Tom Arnold. Halloween is almost here which means when we had the chance to speak with Tom Arnold about the new horror comedy Dead Ant, we couldn't resist the chance to get in a question about his relationship with MovieWeb's favorite horror movie killer Freddy Krueger.

The 58 year old actor and comedian, who earned an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance thanks to his supporting role in Arnold Schwarzenegger's True Lies, made his film debut in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, the supposed finale of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, which arrived in September 1991.

It was the height of tabloid fame for Arnold and his then wife, Roseanne Barr, »

Matt Lucas Teases That He’s Not Done With Doctor Who

20 October 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Doctor Who fans were surprised when it was announced that Matt Lucas had been bumped up from one-off Christmas guest star to full time companion for season 10. After all, in his first appearance, the character – the bumbling Nardole – didn’t seem to have enough substance to him to sustain a longterm role.

Well, how wrong we were. Lucas adjusted his performance accordingly and Nardole became a more textured figure and trusted ally to the Doctor. And, as it happens, Lucas might still have more travels in the Tardis ahead of him. In an interview with Den Of Geek, the actor spoke about how much he enjoyed being part of Doctor Who – and, in the process, hinted that he isn’t done with the sci-fi show yet.

“I’m really glad I did it. No regrets at all, only gratitude. I’m not sure my relationship with the show is over, »

David Tennant And Billie Piper Explain Why They’re Returning To Doctor Who

19 October 2017 6:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even when your favourite Doctor regenerates and leaves the show, the great thing about Doctor Who is that they’re able to come back at any point in time. Thanks to time travel, the Doctor can easily bump into his past selves now and then. Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the sci-fi show.

Whether that’ll ever happen or not is up for debate – we wouldn’t rule it out, though – but in the meantime, we’ve got the next best thing coming our way, as the actor will be reprising the role for a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions. Granted, it’s obviously not as exciting »

Currently winning rave reviews for her role in Simon Stephens’ version of The Seagull, Lesley Sharp will be here to take your questions on Monday 23 October from 1pm BST

12.33pm BST

Lesley Sharp has been a regular, comforting presence on our TVs and cinema screens ever since uttering the immortal line: “Make your own fucking tea!” while playing the snooty Michelle in 1980s council-estate romp Rita, Sue and Bob Too. Bringing humour and pathos to even the most unassuming roles, she’s worked with many of the best British directors and showrunners of our times: Alan Clarke on Rita, Sue…; Mike Leigh on Naked and Vera Drake; Paul Abbott on Clocking Off; Kay Mellor on Playing the Field; Sally Wainwright on Scott & Bailey; and several times with Russell T Davies, who once tipped her to become the next Doctor Who.

Sadly that hasn’t come to fruition – yet – but Saturday »

David Tennant Says He’s Always Happy To Return To Doctor Who

18 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even when your favourite Doctor regenerates and leaves the show, the great thing about Doctor Who is that they’re able to come back at any point in time. Thanks to time travel, the Doctor can easily bump into his past selves now and then. Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the world of the sci-fi show.

In a recent interview with Doctor Who Magazine to promote a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions, who also produce adventures starring Doctors 4-8, the actor described playing the iconic character as always “a happy place to be.”

‘Cute Little Buggers’ Review

18 October 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kristofer Dayne, Steve Aaron-Sipple, Dan Abrams, Lydie Misiek, John R. Walker, Caroline Munro, Honey Holmes, Gary Martin, Dani Thompson | Written by Garry Charles, Andy Davie, Tony Jopia, Kristofer Dayne | Directed by Tony Jopia

If Monty Pythons and the Holy Grail (1975) and Watership Down (1978) taught me anything growing up, if it doesn’t look like it isn’t dressed up to attend the Playboy Mansion, rampant rabbits are dangerous. Tony Jopia takes that premise one step further with his B-Movie creature feature Cute Little Buggers.

When hostile aliens land on earth with the intension of taking over the planet to save their own race, they choose to mutate the local rabbit population. Blending the rabbits with alien DNA, they knowingly unleashed the cute but vicious blood thirsty creatures on the unsuspecting locals. As the butchered bodies starts piling and the rampant rabbits begin to rampage, the locals are forced to »

Trailer Watch: The New Suitress Is Making the Rules in “UnREAL” Season 3

18 October 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

UnREAL

A powerful woman is pulling the strings in the new season of “Everlasting,” and it’s not Quinn (Constance Zimmer) or Rachel (Shiri Appleby). A teaser has dropped for the third season of “UnREAL,” and the reality dating show at the center of Lifetime’s critically acclaimed series is making history for the second season in a row. Last season of “Everlasting” saw a black suitor introduced for the first time, and this season will mark the first time a female suitress has held the reins. The spot hints that there’s a seismic shift on set — the female suitress is a game-changer.

From now on, the only rules are the rules I make,” says the show’s new star, Serena (Caitlin FitzGerald, “Masters of Sex”). Quinn and Rachel have their work cut out for them — the producers aren’t going to be able to manipulate Serena into doing their bidding with as much ease as previous suitors. As Rachel admits, “She’s smart. We can’t handle her in the same way.”

UnREAL” was created by Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Mad Men”) and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro (“Sequin Raze”), the latter of whom worked as a producer on “The Bachelor.”

According to Deadline, helmers this season include Shapiro, Hanelle M. Culpepper (“Quantico”), Sheree Folkson (“Doctor Who”), and Zimmer, who will be making her directorial debut. Appleby directed an ep last season and will once again step behind the camera. Earlier this year the “Roswell” alumna inked a multiyear overall deal with A+E Studios, the producers behind “UnREAL.” The agreement sees her creating and developing new projects and producing original programming for the studio and outside buyers via her Appletree Pictures banner.

Season 3 of “UnREAL” will premiere February 26, 2018. The Emmy-nominated series has a new showrunner, Stacy Rukeyser, an executive producer who has worked on the show since it launched. Check out the trailer to meet Serena and to see Quinn’s reaction to a brawl the suitors get into.

Matt Lucas chats to us about Little Britain, Doctor Who, hair, fandom and his new memoir...

Matt Lucas was on his way to Yeovil when we caught up with him for a chat. He’s been promoting his excellent memoir Little Me, and he spared us half an hour for a natter that covered Doctor Who, Little Britain, his book, grief, mental health, hair, a Twix bar in the fridge and Les Mis.

Actor Russell Tovey ("Doctor Who") voices DC Comics' 1941 comic book superhero 'The Ray' in the CW Seed animated  series "Freedom Fighters: The Ray":

"Raymond 'Ray' Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists...

"...working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. 

"But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a 'genetic light bomb.' 

"The bomb failing to kill Ray, gifted him with light-based powers. 

"With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it. 

"Calling himself 'The Ray', he was recruited by the 'Freedom Fighters' to fight 'oppression' wherever it exists..."

Awesome Fan Art Imagines Doctor Who’s Matt Smith As The Joker

16 October 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By now, you’re probably well acquainted with the concept of fan art if you’re a geek who happens to have some type of social media account. Really, the chances are slim that your feed hasn’t been graced by a piece imagining what certain celebrities would look like if cast as specific heroes or villains. And while you may have your own opinion regarding this matter, you have to admit that it paints a clearer picture than the days when people likely had to draw over magazine clippings ever could have.

The latest example of this comes in the form of yet another fan favorite actor being made up in the guise of the Joker, who is arguably the most popular supervillain in all of fiction. To date, he’s been played in live action by the likes of Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and Jared Leto, »

Matt Smith Rumored To Show Up In Doctor Who Christmas Special

16 October 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This December’s Doctor Who Christmas special, “Twice Upon a Time,” is stuffed full of great guest stars. Not only will Harry Potter‘s David Bradley be appearing as the First Doctor, but Mark Gatiss and Pearl Mackie will be joining in as well to say goodbye to Peter Capaldi as he regenerates into Jodie Whittaker. The fan-baiting cameos don’t stop there, though. At least, not if this new rumour is to be believed.

According to several fans on Twitter, Matt Smith has been spotted on the Doctor Who set, suggesting that the Eleventh Doctor will return in time for his successor’s regeneration. Smith previously cameoed in 2014’s “Deep Breath,” Peter Capaldi’s first episode, so it would bring things full circle if he was to appear in his last one, too.

Jodie Whittaker Isn’t Really Doctor Who’s First Female Lead, And Here’s Why

15 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in July, the BBC released a minute-long teaser in which they revealed the actor due to take up the title role in their sci-fi spectacular, Doctor Who. And, after years of speculation and query following the show’s return to TV screens in 2005, the clip revealed that the Doctor would be taking the female form for the very first time, as the individual stepping into the Tardis will be Jodie Whittaker.

Unsurprisingly, reaction to the news swept across the web. Scores of fans rejoiced as the announcement proved that the series’ creators had listened to their requests and long-running hopes for a female lead. In the months that followed, countless people who’ve been close to the show over the years voiced their support for Whittaker, with many former stars even suggesting that, from early footage they’ve been shown, she looks set to be the best-suited to the role yet. »
