It’s difficult to ascribe movies with a nationality, given that the murky business of film finance is nebulous at best (now more than ever), based more on tax breaks than creative concerns. Fitting with this model, this list is also nebulous, as some of the movies shown here aren’t completely British, whatever that is. Some will feature American actors or American directors, but it’s important to try not to get your knickers in a twist.
2013 was an unusually fecund year for British cinema. Sure, you still had the usual Cockney-gangster turds that get released every year – and, shudder, Diana – but there were also a lot of great movies released. Other notables not featured here include Spike Island, Byzantium, Welcome to the Punch, Trance and Sunshine on Leith. Never has there been a better time to live in the UK, film-wise. Despite the UK government simultaneously demanding more »

We’ve seen a few teasers for Sherlock over the last little while, but this is the first one that really captures what I love about the BBC series. I almost feel like the death of Sherlock Holmes has overshadowed the fun that can be found in the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Now, more than ever, I want Season 3 to get here and get here soon. I’ll find a way to get my grubby hands on BBC One so I don’t have to wait for the American premiere no matter the extra cost to my cable bill. I need me my Sherlock in order to live a proper and productive life.
What hit me hard about this video was seeing Holmes casually joke about his faked death. He stands with his brother, Mycroft (apparently Mycroft is aware of Sherlock’s trickery), and contemplates paying a visit to »

Benedict Cumberbatch is ''worried'' about reintroducing his titular character in the 'Sherlock' Christmas special. The 37-year-old star is concerned about the festive special as the last season ended with famous detective Sherlock Holmes and Jim Moriarty (Andrew Scott) appearing to fall to their deaths from the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland, and the actor is hoping his return will meet with fans' high expectations. He explained to the Radio Times magazine: ''It's important for me to state this. Everyone keeps on banging on about the expectations of how he survived his fall at the end of series two. I'm much more worried »
"Mary doesn't come between them in a negative way - she doesn't destroy their relationship," the actress told Metro. "A lot of Sherlock Holmes fans don't like Mary in the books but she's an interesting character to play - she's very feisty.
"It was daunting [to join the series] because Martin and Benedict do have such amazing chemistry, and there's such a thing about those two on the internet - fans who are obsessed with the idea of those two being together."
Abbington - who is married to her co-star Freeman in real life - also dismissed accusations that "nepotism" had helped land her the Sherlock role.
"I've already had the nepotism label thrown at me, big time, »
Though we’ve had some solid looks at the gameplay of Thief in previous trailers, this past weekend’s Vgx show saw the debut of a new video, and it revealed some crucial plot details. Death! The Occult! Mysterious Creatures! Eidos Montreal has packed quite a bit of new information into one small tease.
If you recall the original Thief games, you may remember Garrett taking on a young apprentice at the conclusion of Thief: Deadly Shadows. At the start of this trailer we see Garrett and his apprentice, Erin, spying on what appears to be a cult meeting. I’m not sure what they’re planning on stealing from a bunch of old men in robes, but I digress. During the ceremony, the cult summons some type of mystical force, which inadvertently leads to Erin falling through the ceiling and dying.
Aside from some ominous warnings from other characters »

“I think I’ll surprise John. Pop into Baker Street, who knows? Jump out of a cake.”
“Baker Street? He isn’t there anymore. It’s been two years. He’s got on with his life.”
It has been two years since Sherlock Holmes dived from the roof of St Bartholemews, coat flapping like a superhero’s cape. Two whole years since Benedict Cumberbatch’s eyes flashed at the sight of an intriguing murder (on-screen at least); two years, a couple of Hobbit films, a Star Trek adventure and an astronomical ascension in fame for both Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Both stars have been plagued by the question since ‘The Reichenbach Fall’: comedian Jack Whitehall was joking the about theories with Cumberbatch just a few weeks back on Graham Norton’s show.
Some of us haven’t got on with our lives that much; the Sherlock Series 3 trailer only hit the net days ago, »

The previous season ended with Holmes jumping to his death from a roof, but according to a minute-long trailer unveiled by the BBC, the viewers will now see the series take a dark turn, the Daily Express reported.
The iconic character played by Cumberbatch plans to surprise his doctor pal John Watson, played by British actor Martin Freeman, by turning up to their famous Baker Street residence. (Ani) »

"I watched it... it's great. It's watching an actor I really like playing a part I really like and enjoy playing," Cumberbatch told Digital Spy and other journalists.
"And to see him relishing it in similar ways is fantastic. I think he's doing a wonderful job."
Quizzed how he would out-Sherlock his friend, Cumberbatch replied: "There are 78 of us all vying for the position, out-Sherlocking one another. So we're in good company."
After initially admitting to feeling "cynical" about Elementary when it was first announced, Cumberbatch later called the show "fantastic" and urged people to watch. »

Two years after the devastating effects of “The Reichenbach Fall,” Dr John Watson (Martin Freeman) has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon.

It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’! If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it though, he’s in for a very big surprise...

Benedict Cumberbatch has the coolest name in all of acting. He really does. It just sounds so, so British. So really, who better to play a modern version of Sherlock Holmes than someone with a name that is just as cool? We have some good news for the fevered fans of Cumberbatch, as the season [&hellip
Season Three Trailer For Sherlock Is Here »

Sherlock Holmes: Moriarty Lives #1
Writers: David Liss
Art: Daniel Indro
Colors: Josan Gonzalez
Publisher: Dynamite Comics
David Liss is an Edgar Award winning crime novelist and is a perfect choice for writing about Professor Moriarty’s “comeback” after his presumed death at Reichenbach Falls. Moriarty Lives #1 follows the beginning of his journey to regain the mantle of “Napoleon of Crime” in a strange, little Swiss village. Using dialogue and caption boxes, Liss shows literature’s first villain hatching schemes, but ends up making him a sympathetic character as well without making him too much of a hero. He understands Moriarty is a dark, twisted mirror of Sherlock Holmes and even gives him his own “Sherlock scan” moment. However, the art and supporting cast fall short of such a great character. Colorist Josan Gonzalez switches from a darker to lighter color palette for a scene that happens in the same room. »

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes is alive, and he needs to get reacquainted with London in the Season 3 launch trailer for BBC One’s “Sherlock.” As the titular, legendary Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character, Cumberbatch learns that his beloved sidekick, Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman), is no longer on Baker Street — after all, it has been two years since the master detective faked his own death. His dear Watson has “moved on” — a ludicrous premise to the self-absorbed Holmes. The new trailer warns viewers — and Holmes — that a terroristic attack is imminent, but its real beauty lies in »

The actor - who plays John Watson on the BBC drama - said it was "ridiculous" that people tweeted abusive messages to Abbington after she was cast as love interest Mary Morstan.
He told Time Out: "To me, they're not fans of the show - they're fans of a show going on in their heads.
"Obviously I love Amanda and I want everyone to react positively to her; she plays a fantastic character and brings a hell of a lot to the third series."
Freeman also revealed his concern that the new series will be an anti-climax for viewers in regards to how Sherlock Holmes faked his death in the previous episode.
He said: "There's something slightly mundane in knowing the truth of a thing. It's like asking Derren Brown to »
The BBC has released a new trailer and thirty new photos from Sherlock Season 3. As you might expect, the trailer includes a ton of great new footage from the upcoming season, and many of the photos feature Martin Freeman (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness). This show looks so good!

Interview Louisa Mellor 10 Dec 2013 - 07:00
Happily, Martin Freeman will be unavoidable for the next few weeks. First, he's headlining The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, out in the UK and around the world on Friday the 13th of December. Just over a fortnight after that, we'll see him return to the role of John Watson, a man about to have his graveside wish - that Sherlock perform one last miracle and not be dead - granted.
The Holmes/Watson reunion, we're told, will be less about the resolution to the two-year-old question of how Sherlock survived his rooftop fall, and more about John's reaction. No small amount of pressure rests on Freeman's shoulders then, not that it was in evidence as we spoke to him in a round-table interview in April, »

So, things have been almost deathly »

Ballots are due Monday for both the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes, so it’s a good time to salute some underdogs in the TV acting categories. (Come to think of it, TV itself is an underdog during the film-centric awards season.)
Year after year, the TV noms include the usual suspects from hit series. And while they deserve the recognition, so do a lot of other terrific actors who are worthwhile but don’t make the cut. So here’s a salute to some talented individuals and ensembles, with a reminder that good work is its own reward. Well, good work and residuals.
It’s not the kind of role that wins awards, because he rarely has scenery-chewing moments. But Harmon’s character and performance are the glue that holds the show together and keep audiences coming back, making it one of TV’s top-rated shows. »

When Zack Snyder cast Henry Cavill as the lead in Man of Steel, it wasn't the British actor's first brush with Superman. Back in 2004, Cavill was cast as the iconic superhero in Superman: Flyby, a planned reboot from director McG (Charlie's Angels) and screenwriter J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Into Darkness), which ultimately fell apart when Bryan Singer came on board and cast Brandon Routh in 2006's Superman Returns. And, thanks to ThinkMcFlyThink, we have a glimpse of Cavill in the red-and-blue from his 2004 screen test for Flyby...
Superman: Flyby was intended as an origin tale that would have radically altered the traditional Superman story, with Kal-El being sent to Earth as an infant during a Civil War on Krypton and eventually coming to battle his evil cousin Ty-Zor and his three Kryptonian cronies, but only after being killed in action and subsequently resurrected. Other actors said to have been considered »
