Venice - NBC's "The Office" rang frequent laughs from Dwight Schrute's beet farm, with glimpses of backwards Cousin Mose and his feral antics proving particularly fertile ground for comedy ("And as of this morning, we are completely wireless here at Schrute Farms, but as soon as I find out where Mose hid all the wires, we'll get all that power back on.") This kind of vaguely unsettling boys-on-the-farm vibe is played straight in "The Goob", a character piece that has atmosphere to spare, and whose minimal plot is helped along by the happily original setting; this might be the first film shot in Norfolk to premiere at Venice. Self-described as "a psychological Western" and set largely on farmland of sorts in the flat formerly marshy Fens in the East of England (think the reclaimed bits of the Everglades without the redeeming features of exotic wildlife or sunshine), The Goob is »

Hammer, and Entertainment One released the teaser trailer for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, the next installment of the most successful British horror film of all time. The film stars Jeremy Irvine, Phoebe Fox, Sophie Okonedo, Helen McCrory, and Oaklee Pendergast.
The Woman in Black: Angel Of Death continues the original film’s story: four decades have passed since Arthur Kipps, as played by Daniel Radcliffe, travelled to Eel Marsh House – and now, a group of children are evacuated with their teachers from the perils of Blitz-era London. The group soon awakens Eel Marsh House’s darkest inhabitant.
The film is directed by Tom Harper (The Scouting Book For Boys, War Book. ‘Peaky Blinders’) from a screenplay written by Jon Croker (Desert Dancer), which is based on an original story outline by Susan Hill, author of The Woman in Black.

The newly revitalized Hammer Films have had some big successes ("Let Me In," "The Woman In Black"), less well received productions ("The Resident," "The Quiet Ones") and for their next trick, the studio is hoping a sequel can put another movie into the win column. The Daniel Radcliffe-starring "The Woman In Black" was a surprise critical and audience hit when it was released a couple of years ago, and while Radcliffe hasn't returned for the followup, "The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death" is aiming to carry on the spooky flame. Jeremy Irvine and Phoebe Fox take the lead roles this time around, with Tom Harper ("The Scouting Book For Boys") behind the camera. And the story kicks off forty years after the events of the first "The Woman In Black" with WWII looming, and the spirit of Eel Marsh House looming once again. The setting offers some interesting ideas, »

So as we anticipate what Brent has been up to since the end of the BBC hit comedy, here's what the cast have done since:
Ricky Gervais played the lead role as David Brent - the embarrassing, toe-curling and cringeworthy boss of company Wernham Hogg, devoid of self-awareness but poised with an unwavering love for the paper merchants he manages.
Gervais went on to create comedy Extras with Stephen Merchant, which was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and aired between 2005 and 2007. Gervais played ambitious actor Andy Millman, afflicted with a useless agent played by Merchant. Guest stars have included Patrick Stewart, Samuel L Jackson, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet.
In 2009, Gervais starred in, wrote and directed his feature comedy debut The Invention of Lying. »
