'Hannibal' Season 3 Episode and Director Details Unveiled

24 March 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that Season 3 of Hannibal will debut on NBC June 4. NBC revealed back in January that they were pushing the show to debut in the summer, instead of the spring like the first seasons, but it seems the extended wait will be well worth it. Series creator Bryan Fuller took to his Twitter account earlier this week to share a number of intriguing details about this upcoming season, along with the directors for four of the 13 episodes.

Bryan Fuller made all of these revelations after asking the fans on his Twitter page to vote for his earlier series Pushing Daisies in an online poll of which beloved but short-lived shows should come back. After Pushing Daisies beat out Firefly in the final round, Bryan Fuller started releasing Hannibal tidbits, first revealing that the Season 3 premiere, "Antipasto", "will take place over four different periods of time."

Smallville Alum Allison Mack Gets Pulled Into NBC's American Odyssey

Premiering Sunday, April 5 at 10/9c, the Traffic-like thriller stars Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Sergeant Odelle Ballard, an American soldier who, in the midst of a Seal Team Six-like takedown of an Al Qaeda leader, stumbles across enormously volatile intel. Soon afterwards, private military contractors arrive to take out Odelle’s entire unit, though she miraculously, secretly survives.

NBC’s Odyssey Retitled American Odyssey On Eve Of Debut

13 March 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

NBC has tweaked the title of its upcoming drama Odyssey less than a month before its premiere, renaming the show American Odyssey.

Though the network declined to comment on what spurred the name change, sources close to the production say the new title better reflects the arduous journey of protagonist Odelle (Anna Friel), an American soldier beset by enemies on all sides as she attempts to return to her friends and family in New York.

Of course, the more cynical answer is that NBC execs weren’t living under a rock in January, when American Sniper stormed the box office and racked up Oscar nominations. Renaming the show American Odyssey may make the series more palatable to the same right-leaning audiences that sent Sniper soaring.

The transformation in NBC’s advertising campaign, tied in with the name-change, is quite startling. Whereas Friel’s protagonist was before on her knees, with her hands bound, »

Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2 Blu-ray Double Feature Release Details Revealed

25 February 2015 1:36 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes, high school can be a virtual hell. Mileage varies by the individual, of course, but in a place where acceptance at a lunch table can be akin to finding an oasis in a desert, there's more weight on the shoulders of many teens than just their backpack straps. Such is the case for Ewen High School student Carrie White, the telekinetic titular character of Stephen King's seminal debut novel published in 1974.

Carrie has been adapted for the screen multiple times for multiple generations, and Scream Factory is giving the Generation Y versions a high-definition upgrade, with their Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2 double feature Blu-ray now set to hit shelves with an official release date and bonus features, including two new audio commentaries.

Get A Double Dose of Carrie When Scream Factory Releases Carrie/The Rage: Carrie 2 To Bluray This April!!

25 February 2015 12:08 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Don’t we all love us some telekinetic teenage angst? The gang over at Scream Factory certainly do, and are set unleash a double dose of Carrie White onto Bluray, when the double feature of 2002’s Angela Bettis-led Carrie adaption and Kat Shea’s 1999 Carrie sequel, The Rage: Carrie 2 hits shelves on April 14th. While last year saw yet another adaption of Stephen King’s classic novel, the 2002 version was a lot closer to the source material and though nothing will top Brian De Palma’s 1976 Carrie, the Bettis-led version is quite entertaining. Plus, with scenes like seeing one of the kids from Home Improvement getting his balls impaled in The Rage: Carrie 2, what’s not to like about that one?

Daredevil: 15 rating, first directors and episode titles confirmed

20 February 2015 1:02 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Plenty of info here about Marvel’s Daredevil series on Neftlix. And a 15 rating? Yes please…

As the folks at Collider spotted, the British Board Of Film Classification have spilled a few beans with regards to Marvel Studio’s Daredevil Netflix series.

Promisingly for fans of gritty street-level violence, the show is the first Marvel Studios property to garner a 15 rating. Many may have been hoping for an 18, but 15 definitely allows a lot more than a 12A. ‘Strong bloody violence,’ is the reason given, but it would sound creepy for us to say that sounds promising wouldn’t it? Moving on…

We also learnt some interesting details from the first three episodes. The premiere episode will be titled Into The Ring – a crime ring, perhaps? Or should we expect some boxing (Matthew Murdock's father was a boxer after all)? The McU debut of The Ringmaster? We don’t know, but »

‘Hannibal’ Creator Talks ‘Star Trek’ and Balancing Projects

23 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hannibal” creator Bryan Fuller has had an enviable career trajectory. Happily coinciding with the past decade or so’s focus on “smart” TV, his star rose in the early 2000s as he left “Star Trek’s” sci-fi universe for quirky cult shows like “Wonderfalls,” “Dead Like Me” and “Pushing Daisies.” But his first mention in Variety was for something more gruesome — adapting the 2002 TV-movie version of “Carrie,” Stephen King’s classic horror tale of bullying and scorned teen angst.

Do you recall seeing your name in Variety?

It’s always surreal — particularly for me as someone who was so steeped in Stephen King as an adolescent — and then to be adapting his first novel and getting a mention in Variety. It’s hard to quantify the experience, because it’s ethereal in a way.

What do you recall from that point in your life?

Anna Friel swaps colorful 'Pushing Daisies' for NBC's gritty 'Odyssey'

16 January 2015 12:56 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Long before Zooey Deschanel brought New Girl's critically adored Jessica Day to life, Anna Friel was a ray of sunshine as Charlotte "Chuck" Charles on Bryan Fuller’s Pushing Daisies, the colorful, but short-lived ABC series that was surprisingly upbeat for a story about death. Chuck, who was brought back to life by her childhood sweetheart Ned (Lee Pace), really was the original adorkably beautiful brunette. But now, Friel will bring a very different character to life on NBC’s Odyssey, a gritty drama in which a U.S. soldier Odelle Ballard (Friel) uncovers a computer file that suggests a U. »
