21 July 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Residents of Cheesebridge lock themselves indoors at night for fear of the Boxtrolls. But Eggs, an orphan raised by the Boxtrolls, knows they would never do humans any harm, and he just might bridge the divide between the two species. Based on the popular novel from Alan Snow, Laika’s The Boxtrolls hits theaters on September 26th, and the film will have a Hall H panel at Sdcc later this week.

Featuring Sir Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Elle Fanning, and more, The Boxtrolls Hall H panel will take place on Saturday, July 26th from 1:30pm – 2:30pm. There will also be an Eat Like the Boxtrolls event at Petco Park on Friday and Saturday afternoon, in which Bug Chef David George Gordon will be creating a menu of edible bug and insect creations for attendees to dig into.

Spoiler proofing and script leaks in TV and movies

8 July 2014 2:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If the script for something you're dying to see leaks online, it's tempting to read it... but you're better off waiting, as Mark explains

Feature

In the age of online entertainment journalism, it seems like information about big productions, including spoilers, is generally freer than ever before. The onslaught of casting rumours, set pictures and videos of filming has only led producers to double down and become more secretive about their big projects.

As a proponent of the oft-criticised “Mystery Box” mode of marketing, Jj Abrams would be a prime example. It worked for Super 8, because we knew very little about the film by the time it came out, but infuriated people when he and his team wouldn't admit the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s character in Star Trek Into Darkness for months on end, when we all guessed who he’d be playing pretty early on.

Mike Judge's Silicon Valley: 'We tried to make it not about the tech'

4 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The creator of Beavis and Butt-head has turned his attention to tech start-ups. It's relatable, autobiographical and, according to Tyler, The Creator 'dope'

He created and voiced puerile, metal-loving dunces Beavis and Butt-head, but in real life, Mike Judge speaks softly and is unfailingly polite. Which makes his impression of Tyler, The Creator even funnier. He recalls a recent meeting with the notorious rap tyro where the conversation turned to Judges current project Silicon Valley. I guess Tyler had seen the billboards for the show, explains Judge. And he said, and I wont get this exactly right, but it was something like: Man, I thought it was going to be some fucking show about how fucking hard it is to make a fucking computer. Then I saw it, man, and that shit is dope. The 51-year-old sounds half-embarrassed and half-proud. He chuckles at the memory, and you can hear the faintest echo of Butt-head. »

TV Review: The Honourable Woman ‘The Empty Chair’ *Spoilers*

3 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Creator: Hugo Blick

Starring: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lubna Azabel, Eve Best, Andrew Buchan, Katherine Parkinson, Andrew Buchan, Tobias Menzies, Stephen Rea.

Synopsis: Powerful businesswoman Nessa Stein is thrown into a game of political cat-and-mouse.

*Please Note: This Review Contains Major Spoilers From Episode One Of The Honourable Woman

“Who do you trust?” says Nessa Stein (Maggie Gyllenhaal) in the opening monologue of Hugo Blick’s spy thriller The Honourable Woman. While we are hooked by the soothing tone’s Gyllenhaal (rather brilliant may we add) British accent, we witness a young Nessa and Ephra Stein watching their father being killed while they eat dinner. Within three minutes, we get the on edge thriller tone of the drama, but just because we are getting that so quickly does not mean we’re in for a easy ride.

Each scene plays out like a jigsaw puzzle. It is usually a play on good vs. »

Knocked for Six Review

13 June 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There’s a chance you may have caught Boyd Hicklin’s cricket comedy Knocked for Six at London Film Festival 2012 – where it went by the name of Save Your Legs. However now seems a far more appropriate time to indulge in this quirky piece, as we enter in to the cricket season (otherwise known as the Summer, over ‘ere), with a film that taps into that annual excitement amongst fans of the sport. A sport that, while mostly untouched in cinema, has shown that it can translate well onto the big screen, following on from the brilliant documentary Fire in Babylon.

Teddy Brown (Stephen Curry) lives and breathes cricket, spending the vast majority of his time focusing on being the president of the Abbotsford Anglers, where he plays alongside his two closest friends, Rick (Brendan Cowell) and Stavros (Damon Gameau) amongst others. His biggest dream, however, is to embark on »

Quiz: Twins, Doubles, and Doppelgängers

12 June 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

What could be better than one Jesse Eisenberg?  Two, perhaps.  Unless one of them is driving you crazy.   The star is pulling double duty as a man who is slowly being driven insane by his doppelganger-cum-rival in The Double, which heads to theatres in limited release this week. The film is totally on trend when it comes to cinematic doppelgangers with a few upcoming and recent releases getting more bang for their buck with having actors perform dual roles on screen. 

The Double comes on the heels of recent release Enemy which found Toronto professor Jake Gyllenhaal obsessed with a look-alike after spotting him in a movie, and the recently released The Face of Love which sees a grieving widow (Annette Bening) fall in love with a dead ringer for her, well, dead husband played by Ed Harris.  All three films premiered last September at the Toronto International Film Festival. »

8 Reasons to Become a Fan of Richard Ayoade

12 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Today is Richard Ayoade’s birthday. You might know him as the random British inclusion in The Watch, the filmmaker behind the Jesse Eisenberg doppelganger movie, The Double, and of course, he’s Moss from The It Crowd — a character that Christopher Campbell once dressed up as for Halloween. He’s also a great serving of comedic joy. Ayoade wouldn’t agree. He self-deprecatingly says he’s “just terrible. At talking. With words.” But if Ayoade is not, by his estimation, an actor, he is certainly a man who can banter brilliantly and absurdly in ways that make every manner of words seem natural. Even better: he has his own much-needed spin on nostalgia, one that replicates old styles rather than old toys, and relishes in the remnants of real life rather than computer-crafted graphics, as these 8 examples reveal. The It Crowd Ayoade broke into North American consciousness when he co-starred with Chris O’Dowd and Katherine Parkinson »

'The Double' Review: What, Exactly Is This Movie About?

12 June 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After a successful festival run, Richard Ayoade's film "The Double" is making its way to screens this weekend. This "Gilliamesque" take on Fyodor Dostoyevksy's 1846 novella sees a man come to terms with his doppelgänger, where a far more confident and aggressive version of himself makes his life quite a chore.

What the hell does "Gilliamesque" mean?

Terry Gilliam established with a number of movies (including the much-lauded "Time Bandits," "Brazil," and "12 Monkeys") a particular style of film, one that mixes time periods with quirky retro props and a darkly comedic ethos. At their best, films of this type create an incredibly rich world, one that feels lived-in and inviting while at the same time appearing oblique.

So who's this Ayoade fellow, then?

Ayoade, like Gilliam, got his big break in U.K. television, appearing on shows like "The It crowd" and "The Mighty Boosh." "The Double" follows Ayoade's 2010 fim "Submarine, »

Jesse Eisenberg, Director Richard Ayoade Talk 'The Double'

12 June 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Richard Ayoade is quickly establishing himself as one of the more interesting young directors working today. The Londoner gained loads of fans as a performer on quirky Brit TV shows like "The Mighty Boosh" and "The It Crowd," and his 2010 directorial debut "Submarine" gained plenty of fans after its Toronto Film Festival premiere.

His latest film, "The Double," takes a Dostoyevsky novella and turns it on its head, creating a quirky, cerebral-yet-darkly funny take on the drudgery of work and the promise of love. Star Jesse Eisenberg is perfectly cast as both sides of the doppelgänger, carefully fine-tuning his performance to create two unique characters who share more than just the same face.

Moviefone spoke to the director and star during Tiff, discussing everything from the source material to the challenge of playing two very dichotomous characters.

New trailer for stop motion animation The Boxtrolls

11 June 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Focus Features and Laika have released a new trailer for The Boxtrolls, a stop-motion animated adaptation of Alan Snow’s fantasy adventure Here Be Monsters from the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman. Check it out after the official synopsis…

The Boxtrolls is a comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh Victorian-era town obsessed with wealth, class and the stinkiest of fine cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal what the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses. At least that’s the legend residents have always believed. In truth, the Boxtrolls are an underground cavern-dwelling community of quirky and lovable oddballs who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. The Boxtrolls have raised an orphaned human boy, Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright), since infancy as one of their dumpster-diving and mechanical junk-collecting own. »

First Look: Maggie Gyllenhaal in BBC’s ‘The Honourable Woman’

10 June 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The BBC have revealed the first image from the new eight-part political thriller The Honourable Woman, which will see film actress Maggie Gyllenhaal make the move to the smaller screen. Set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, this looks to be a very powerful new drama for the BBC and with Gyllenhaal leading the impressive cast, it seems everyone involved is very excited by this project.

Polly Hill, Head of Independent Drama for the BBC, has said:

Maggie Gyllenhaal makes a perfect Nessa Stein. Hugo Blick has created a complex character in Nessa, with an extraordinary story. The combination of Hugo’s stunning scripts and Maggie Gyllenhaal in the lead role is an exciting and powerful combination.”

The cast also includes Lindsay Duncan (The Hollow Crown), Andrew Buchan (Broadchurch), Katherine Parkinson (The It Crowd), Janet McTeer (The White Queen), Tobias Menzies (Game Of Thrones) and many more.

Doctor Who: the film careers of Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi

4 June 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex's series looking back at the film careers of actors who've played the Doctor finishes with Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi...

Feature

Read the previous part in this series: the film careers of Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, here.

By 2009, the new version of Doctor Who had become not only an integral part of Saturday night television and a huge Christmas ratings winner but also an international success all over again. David Tennant, who had played the Time Lord since 2005 and was, arguably, more popular than any Doctor since the mighty Tom Baker hung up his scarf in 1981, had announced his resignation from the part he loved in October 2008. Many wondered how the incoming showrunner, Steven Moffat, would follow Tennant and what kind of show would emerge.

Tennant spent much of 2009 on stage in Hamlet and was only able to devote small amounts of time to Doctor Who. Occasional specials »

Worms Battlegrounds Review

1 June 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Worms Battlegrounds is essentially the console version of the PC exclusive title Worms Clan Wars, which itself was a direct sequel to Worms Revolution (2012). It exists as the latest in the long-running series, which dates back all the way to 1995. Yes, Worms is nearing its twentieth anniversary, and if you clearly remember the original game, you probably feel as old as I do right now.

For those unfamiliar with the series, Worms is a turn-based strategy game where players control a small team of wormy soldiers, and use a large assortment of wacky weaponry in an attempt to be the last surviving team. The game features a mixture of skill and strategy, but you can still be successful if you tend to gravitate towards one more than the other.

Battlegrounds allows friendly competition between yourself and up to three friends, either online or through local play. You can also test »

Katherine Parkinson teases It Crowd movie

20 May 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Katherine Parkinson has hinted 'The It Crowd' might be made into a movie. The actress suggested Channel 4 bosses are considering bringing the popular sitcom about a gang of geeky office workers to life on the big screen. Viewers were left disappointed when the show wrapped last September after a successful seven-year run, and Katherine revealed the show could possibly be revived in a feature-length format with a musical twist. According to the Radio Times, she teased: ''I think if it did have a future, it would be that sort of thing. I always thought it would be nice to do a sort »

BAFTA TV Awards: Inside The Winners Press Conference

19 May 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Talking to people immediately after they’ve won a BAFTA is a surreal experience to say the least. On the one hand, they are at their very best, delighted with the win and more than happy to gush about the wonderful team they worked with and the television show that resulted. On the other hand, they are often completely shell-shocked and still processing what’s just happened.

The teams behind both Broadchurch and Doctor Who remained tight-lipped about what fans can expect in the future so sadly no intriguing plot reveals here for series two of Broadchurch or the new Peter Capaldi-led Doctor Who, other than the fact that everyone involved is clearly beside themselves with excitement!

David Bradley was evidently very proud of the part he’d played in Broadchurch, saying ‘it’s just a treat for an actor to be part of something [like this].‘ He continued by explaining »

Katherine Parkinson has hinted at a potential It Crowd movie.

The actress was speaking at last night's Arqiva BAFTA Television Awards 2014, having won for best Female Performance in a Comedy Programme.

Parkinson revealed that the success of The Inbetweeners Movie had led to preliminary discussions about an It Crowd film.

"I think if it did have a future, it would be that sort of thing [a film]," she went on. "But you'd have to ask [series creator] Graham [Linehan]."

The It Crowd launched on Channel 4 in 2006 and wrapped with a final special in September 2013.

Parkinson's co-star Richard Ayoade also triumphed last night in his category of Male Performance in a Comedy Programme.
