James Caan’s ‘The Throwaways’ Caught In Hack Attack Crossfire

14 December 2014 1:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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. »

Atlantis series 2 episode 5 review: The Day Of The Dead

12 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The gang is battling zombies in an Atlantis episode that nods towards the horror genre. Here's Dave's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 The Day Of The Dead

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 »

Bradley James Is Damien In Sequel Series To The Omen

4 December 2014 5:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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.

Damien’s first episode will be directed by Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth), making his television directing debut. He has a good star in James, who played King Arthur in the series Merlin, »

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.

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, »

Bradley James of Merlin will play Damien in Lifetime’s The Omen series, landing next year…

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.

Atlantis series 2 episode 2 review: A New Dawn: Part Two

22 November 2014 8:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis continues the strong start made by its series two opener with a battle-heavy episode...

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.

Atlantis series 2 episode 1 review: A New Dawn: Part One

14 November 2014 6:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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 »

Atlantis: Everything you need to know about a deeper, darker series 2

14 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"It's not the follow-up you would expect."

Atlantis returns to BBC One tomorrow night, but the series that'll be airing every Saturday for the next 13 weeks is very different from the one that went out in late 2013.

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."
