Aside from opening a can of worms that would keep Chris Packham busy for a week, the Sony hacking incident has claimed its first scalp in terms of a movie release. Action thriller The Throwaways stars James Caan and Sam Huntington, the latter of which plays a super hacker who is forced to work for the CIA. Huntington then turns the tables on his employers by hiring the fag end of the agency talent pool – the so-called “Throwaways” of the title. It was due to be released by Crackle, the online production arm of Sony Pictures Television, but recent events have led to the Dec 19th premiere being pulled. Though the studio is looking to get it out in January – “when they hope things calm down” – this is fairly unlikely given the current bonfire of the vanities fuelled by private e-mails circulated thus far. Promotional materials for the film are absent for the time being. »

The gang is battling zombies in an Atlantis episode that nods towards the horror genre. Here's Dave's review...
This review contains spoilers.
As ever, let's kick off with a short recap of tonight's action.
Pasiphae's life is in peril and she uses the last of her strength to cast an incantation upon a handy sarcophagus, awakening the body within. Her magic rapidly spreads throughout the Necropolis, reanimating more of the deceased.
With Hercules and Pythagoras hunting for Jason, who has seemingly fallen to his doom, Ariadne fears she may have lost the man she truly loves. Together with Orpheus and Euridice, they must first fight the zombie hordes.
Jason, in the meantime, is facing a moral quandary as he finds himself trapped with Medea, Pasiphae's aide, surrounded by more of the zombie hordes. The new arrangement, as Jason tries to save her, disorientates Medea's moral »
Here are the details:
Marc Warren joins the cast to play the Comte De Rochefort, a dashing and persuasive aristocrat, with a talent for sword fighting and betrayal
BBC America's drama series, The Musketeers, returns for season two in January. The series, which has thrilled audiences across the globe, having sold to 140 territories, is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more of an idea than a reality. Returning for season two is Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) as D'Artagnan, Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard »
The classic horror film The Omen and its slightly less-classic sequels have had a remarkably long shelf life. With four films spanning from the original in 1976 to 1991, plus a remake of the first film in 2006, The Omen series rivals The Exorcist for bad films spawned from a pretty good original. Now, The Omen trajectory will continue with a six-episode series from Fox called Damien, which will star Bradley James as everyone’s favorite Antichrist.
Damien charts the grown-up life of Damien Thorn, the evil little guy who killed everyone in the first film. Damien has become taller and sexier, though, and is apparently struggling to come to terms with the whole spawn of Satan thing. It’s not easy being the Antichrist.

* Merlin alum Bradley James will star in Lifetime’s Damien, a new drama series that picks up where the horror film The Omen left off. The actor will play the mysterious child from the 1976 classic who has grown up unaware of the satanic forces around him, our sister site Deadline reports. »
Less than four months after Lifetime issued a series order for The Omen TV series entitled Damien, Merlin star Bradley James has signed on to play the title character. Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) will make his TV directing debut by taking the helm for the pilot episode and serving as an executive producer. The show is slated to premiere sometime in 2015 on Lifetime.
We first reported on the project back in May, when former The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara signed on to write the pilot script and executive produce through his 44 Strong Productions company. The six-episode series will follow the adult life of Damien Thorn (Bradley James), the devilish child from the original 1976 film who has grown into an adult, seemingly unaware of the evil forces around him. Damien is forced to confront his past and come to terms with the fact that he is, in fact, the Antichrist, »

Shekhar Kapur ("Elizabeth") will helm and executive produce the first episode which essentially ignores the previous sequels. In this version, Damien Thorn (James) has now grown up.

Fox TV Studios will produce the six-episode series which is slated to premiere in 2015. Glen Mazzara penned and will executive produce the show.

Here’s an update on a project that sounds highly promising, albeit one which we’ve not heard anything in a while - Lifetime’s televisual The Omen follow-up.
The show, a continuation of Damien’s story, will see Damien growing older and realising his destiny as the Antichrist. For once, this sounds like a franchise revival which actually has something a little different to explore.

According to Deadline, the 31-year-old will play the title character in Lifetime's Damien.
The six-episode drama will delve into the life of Damien Thorn as an adult, years after the 1976 film which told the story of his childhood as an Antichrist.
Damien will be forced to come to terms with his true identity in the face of the satanic forces around him.
The series, which is expected to premiere sometime in 2015, marks Shekhar Kapur's first step into directing for the small screen, and he will also serve as executive producer for the first episode.
He raised hell for his parents as a boy in 1976’s The Omen, and in Damien, Lifetime’s upcoming follow-up series based on the classic horror film, viewers will see an adult Damien Thorn try to cope with the frightening fact that he is the spawn of Satan. We now know who will play the show’s titular role, as well as the creative mind that will helm the first episode of the series.
According to Deadline, Bradley James, who played Arthur Pendragon, the noble future Camelot king on BBC One’s Merlin TV show, has been cast as Damien in Lifetime’s The Omen series. It’s also been announced that Shekhar Kapur, who has helmed films such as Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age, will direct and executive produce the first episode of Damien.
The six-episode series is written and executive produced by former The Walking Dead showrunner »

This review contains spoilers.
2.2 A New Dawn Part Two
With the city under attack and Jason trapped in a cave with Pythagoras and Hercules, Pasiphae has the upper hand with her amassed forces clearly outnumbering the best that Atlantis has to offer.
Jason and his companions risk their lives to bring The Palladium home and must escape from the lair of the Cyclops in order to do so, whilst Ariadne must fight enemies from within and without. Pasiphae is confident that Atlantis is hers and, as two armies collide, faith and love are tested, lives are lost and a secret is revealed that must be buried or darkness will fall upon Jason and his adopted home.

Crackle has some new spy thriller entertainment coming your way. The online distributor will release its original, feature-length film The Throwaways on its site on December 19, 2014. The film centers around a character named Drew Reynolds (played by Sam Huntington of Being Human and Superman Returns fame), a hacker captured by the CIA and offered either a job with the organization or life in prison. Reynolds joins a “throwaway” group of the CIA’s least-favored agents, including Colonel Christopher Holden (played by James Caan from The Godfather) and combat specialist Dan Fisher (portrayed by Kevin Dillon of Platoon). Together, the three aim to take out a cyber-terrorist bent on destruction. Written by Michael Ross of Jerry McGuire, The Throwaways co-stars Katie McGrath from Merlin, Christian Hillborg of The Bridge, and Jack Kesy of The Strain.

Atlantis makes a welcome return with an action-packed start to a more grown-up second series...
This review contains spoilers.
2.1 A New Dawn Part One
Atlantis series 2 is, it seems, a rebirth for the series, with actors Mark Addy (Hercules) and Jack Donnelly (Jason) suggesting in interviews that writer Howard Overman and producers Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps have created an improvement on the first.
This time around, the show's creators seem to be taking advantage of the storytelling opportunities offered by Atlantis' 8.30pm timeslot, after the mis-step in the first season that saw a programme being broadcast at close to the watershed without any of the maturity that an audience would expect at that time. While A New Dawn Part One wasn't full of nudity, violence and gore, it’s certainly dramatically darker than series one
Starting with King Midas' funeral and Pasiphae attacking, Ariadne darkly states that “this »

"It's not the follow-up you would expect."
Here's everything you need to know about the new and improved fantasy drama, courtesy of its cast.
Atlantis just got darker
"Every part of it is so much more layered and deep - the characters are more layered, their relationships are more complex," says Aiysha Hart, who plays Ariadne.
"I don't think it was bad [before], but it's so different this year," agrees Robert Emms, the bookish Pythagoras. "It's much darker, much more action-packed, it's more serialised.
"I know people who didn't get on with it [last series] and I really want them to watch it. I really hope we gain a new audience - I think we deserve it."
Merlin continues to be an influence »

Check out the trailer embedded below.Leading Lady leading lady, Katie McGrath, is best-known for her work as Morgana in BBC One's Merlin series. Here she plays an idealistic British drama teacher (McGrath is actually Irish) who travels to South Africa to prepare for a role as an Afrikaans war heroine. She convinces a dashingly dour Afrikaner farmer to help her (played by Afrikaner singer Bok van Blerk) (real name), and in exchange agrees to plan the annual farm concert. He, of course, becomes something more to her along the way, as does his odd family, and...
