David Tennant joins Dean Devlin’s Bad Samaritan

28 August 2016 10:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones) has signed on to appear in Bad Samaritan, which marks the feature directorial debut of Independence Day producer Dean Devlin.

“I’m a huge fan of David’s work,” said Devlin. “I’m overjoyed at the opportunity to work with him. [Brandon Boyce’s] script had me on the edge of my seat. Tennant’s intensity is a perfect match for this material.”

The Wrap reports that the film “follows two young car valets who use their business to burglarize homes of the patrons. One day, they attempt to steal from the wrong house, which changes their lives forever.”

Production on Bad Samaritan is set to get underway later this year.

David Tennant Signs On For Dean Devlin’s Bad Samaritan

26 August 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a writer and producer, Dean Devlin has had a hand in some of the highest profile projects of the last quarter of a century. Universal Soldier, Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla – all have been revisited repeatedly by Devlin and others, in numerous media. This is why – even though he is not the most prolific filmmaker – when he sets up a new property, people pay attention. We pay even more attention, when he casts an actor like David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones), in a thriller like Bad Samaritan.

The script comes from Brandon Boyce, who previously wrote effective dramas Apt Pupil and Wicker Park. It centres on two young men working as car valets, who use their position to rob the homes of their customers. Inevitably, they eventually rob the wrong home, and face some unexpected consequences.

The first thing that is very clear about this movie is that it is about men. »

Women at the Emmys: The Behind-the-Scenes Nominees We’re Rooting For

25 August 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Discussing the representation of women in Hollywood is never, you know, a fun topic, especially when it comes to below-the-line departments. In 2016, there are still glaring examples of a lack of progress for women.

While an improvement over years past, here’s just a quick sampling of accomplishments women were not recognized for: narration, music composition, writing in many categories, stunt coordination… There are plenty of categories, as well, where only one or two women were nominated, often with a male partner — such as Writing for a Comedy, where the sole female nominee is Sharon Horgan alongside Rob Delaney for “Catastrophe.”

But rather than dwell on that, let’s acknowledge some of the accomplished nominees who have a chance to be recognized for their achievements this year. Because regardless of gender, they’re awesome.

Outstanding Direction for a Limited Series

Comic Book Review – Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Vol. 2 – Fractures

24 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reviews Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor Vol. 2 – Fractures…

After their adventures in India, the Doctor and Clara return to her present – but danger is slipping through the cracks between universes, and London (and Unit!) have no defence against the Fractures! Will the Doctor risk all of reality to reunite a family – or sacrifice a good man to keep the multiverse spinning? Then, the Doctor gambles with his life in 1960s Las Vegas, as he and Clara must team up with gangsters in order to defeat an intergalactic crime syndicate – but is this one too many spins on the Doctor’s roulette wheel?

The second trade collection which badges up Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor comic run issues 6-10, following on from the previous ‘Terrorformer’, the second volume ‘Fractures’ collects three distinct stories of The Doctor and Clara Oswald, set roughly during the eighth season of Doctor Who »

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat names The Bells Of Saint John his "most reliably average episode"

23 August 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Aug 23, 2016

Steven Moffat has called The Bells Of Saint John "resolutely sort of middle", the median average of his Doctor Who tenure...

Since announcing that Doctor Who series 10 would be his last as showrunner, Steven Moffat has fielded lots of looking-back-themed questions from fans. Resultantly, over the last few months, The Moff has called Doctor Who season 7 "miserable" and claimed that he "fumbled" series 9's opener.

The latest question to be put to Moffat, in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine, is this: if he had to line up all his Who instalments in order of quality, which would he say is "the most reliably average episode"? What's the median of the Moffat tenure?

Here's what he wrote in response...

“Well, I’ll have to choose one that I wrote, otherwise I’m going to upset somebody … I went back and watched it again, and I thought ‘no, »

22 August 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Crackle, Sony's streaming network, today announced that Rupert Grint, most known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, will star in the network's new scripted drama series, Snatch, based on the wildly popular movie of the same name. Grint, who most recently was seen on Broadway opposite Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane in "It's Only a Play," will play the dynamic, frustratingly chaotic and utterly posh, Charlie Cavendish, and will also serve as an executive producer. Additional cast includes Dougray Scott (Fear The Walking Dead, Doctor Who) as Vic Hill, and Ed Westwick (Wicked City, Gossip Girl) who will guest star as Sonny Castillo.

Nick Renton (The Musketeers, Jericho) has signed on to direct the series which begins production next week in Manchester, England. As previously announced at this year's Upfront presentation, Crackle will carry the spirit of the setting in the original feature film, »

Jenna Coleman: ‘I’m northern and working class, so people put you in a box’

20 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

She was a teen star of Emmerdale, and then Doctor Who came calling. Now Jenna Coleman is taking on her biggest role yet, as Queen Victoria. But, she says, it wasn’t as easy as it may seem

“I don’t like that word,” says Jenna Coleman, wrinkling her nose. “People describe me as that a lot, and it makes me cringe. It feels dirty.”

In the garden lounge of a London hotel, we are talking about the word driven. “Something about it feels ruthless, which doesn’t sit well with me.” It would be impossible to describe the gentle, slightly reticent presence next to me as gimlet-eyed. But it’s also hard to describe her rise without sensing that ambition and determination must have played a part. Her first job, at just 19, was wild child Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale. Intended to be a small role, she grew into a series regular, »

The Childhood of a Leader movie review: the history of the world, part Europe

19 August 2016 12:34 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Cinematic wankery at its most puerile. Two hours of the sun setting revealing that this is why it gets dark at night would not have been more pointless. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The Childhood of a Leader is would-be deep cinematic wankery at its most puerile. This is a two-hour-long attempt to construct a metaphor that ends at a place where it steps back and smugly makes a “shocking” pronouncement of something so concretely literal that it is, well, literally the fact of the matter that everyone already knows. If actor turned director (and screenwriter, with Mona Fastvold) Brady Corbet had, with his feature debut, given us 120 minutes of the sun setting and then boldly concluded that this is why it gets dark at night, he would not have been more obvious and inevitable and pointless. »

Swallows and Amazons movie review: a free-range kiddie adventure

18 August 2016 8:36 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Behold a time before helicopter parenting, when children roamed free, ate cake for dinner, and played with fire. A delightfully old-fashioned treat. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Gather round, kiddies, and behold a time before videogames — before television, even — when children roamed free and were forced to relieve their boredom with nothing more than a couple of sticks and their imaginations… and they relished it. Gather round, parents, and marvel as a mother grants permission for her four children to go sailing and camping on their own recognizance, with no adult supervision at all, for days. Because, as that mother says, “I don’t want them frightened of the world,” so they have to learn how to deal with it on their own. Imagine that!

‘Homeland’ Writer Patrick Harbinson Pens Thriller ‘Fearless’ for ITV

16 August 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Homeland” writer and executive producer Patrick Harbinson has penned political thriller “Fearless” for U.K. broadcaster ITV. The six-part miniseries will star Helen McCrory, who played Narcissa Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” films and appears in crime drama “Peaky Blinders.”

“Fearless” centers on Emma Blunt, a lawyer known for defending lost causes. She’s investigating the killing of a schoolgirl in rural England and trying to free the man she thinks was wrongly convicted of the girl’s murder. As she digs deeper into the case, she begins to sense powerful forces, in the police and the intelligence services at home and abroad, who want to stop her uncovering the truth.

“’Fearless’ is a legal thriller, but one that’s written in the crash zone where law and politics collide,” said Harbinson, whose credits include “ER” and “24.”

“National security justifies all sorts of police and state over-reach — and the great majority of us are prepared to accept »

Downton Abbey: Michelle Dockery on a possible film

15 August 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kayti Burt Aug 16, 2016

Michelle Dockery seems to think there is a possibility we will get to see the Crawleys on screen again, in a Downton Abbey movie...

Downton Abbey was a ratings powerhouse on both sides of the Atlantic and — if we've learned anything about ratings powerhouses in this age of remakes and reboots — it's that they hardly ever die.

Is there a chance that the popular period drama about the Crawley family and their extensive community of servants could make it back to the screen — this time, the big screen? According to Michelle Dockery (aka Lady Mary), yes... 

"I think there is potential for a film," Dockery told The Telegraph during an interview that mainly centered on other upcoming projects. "That is something I would wholeheartedly consider, so we will see. It may not be over yet." It sounds like there is some interest in a potential Downton Abbey »

Lights Out review

11 August 2016 3:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Published Date  Thursday, August 18, 2016 - 05:00

What happens if you take a Steven Moffat-alike horror concept, but remove the mad man in a box and all the other comfortable Doctor Who trappings, and sub in some family drama and serious psychological scares? As it turns out, you get a taut 81 minutes of effective terror.

Lights Out is a film that leaves a lasting impression. This is because it preys on our most primordial fears and one of the oldest questions in The Big Book Of Scary Things: what’s going on in the dark? 

Director David F Sandberg – who also wrote and directed the short film on which Eric Heisserer (2010’s A Nightmare On Elm StreetThe Thing remake, Final Destination 5) based the feature-length Lights Out screenplay – isn’t the first person to tackle this sort of topic on screen, and he certainly won’t be the last. »
