Oscar Nominated Moody Pt.2: From Fagin to Merlin - But No Harry Potter

19 June 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s.[1] But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans.[2] The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures.[3] Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell episode 5 review: Arabella

14 June 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bertie Carvel shines, along with the rest of the cast, in this week’s captivating, madness-themed Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell…

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Arabella

Forget Barb meters drily totting up television ratings, the true measure of a TV episode should be judged by the volume of a viewer’s involuntary wail when the end credits appear. By that system, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell registers off the scale. When the screen turned black at the close of tonight’s instalment, my neighbour knocked on the party wall to check I hadn’t done myself an injury.

As an adult, watching this series is the closest I’ve come to the childhood experience of being read a new and spell-binding bedtime book. In the joy of the anticipation, in the telling, and in the frustration of realising a chapter’s end has snuck up on you mid-tale; that’s just how it feels. »

Humans: Is Channel 4's striking new series really science fiction?

11 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Channel 4 has won much acclaim for its exploration of themes of technophobia in Black Mirror - and on Sunday night (June 14), the broadcaster returns to that topic, but on a much grander scale, in new 8-part series Humans.

A co-production with Us cable network AMC - home to The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Mad Men - Humans is based on a European production called Real Humans, which has aired two acclaimed series in its native Sweden.

Relocated to suburban London, Humans will otherwise explore similar territory to the original - it's again set in a parallel present where uncanny humanoid robots, known as 'Synths', are as commonplace in the home as a mobile phone or an iPad.

"Overall, it's the same idea, we just tell the story in a different way," says producer Chris Fry. "Towards the middle of the series, it does change quite a lot [from the original] - with this subject matter, »

'The Rising'

1 June 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Colin Morgan, the lead in the BBC and Syfy’s Merlin and a cast regular on Humans, has been cast in the Irish historical thriller that is scheduled to shoot in winter 2015/16.

Kevin McCann will direct The Rising and is targeting a 2016 release to mark the centenary of The Easter Rebellion, when the Irish Republican Brotherhood clashed with British occupying forces in Dublin.

The insurrection was suppressed after six days but revived secessionism and returned it to the forefront of Irish politics.

McCann co-wrote the screenplay with Colin Broderick, which centres on Irish freedom fighter Sean McDermott and predates events in the films Michael Collins and The Wind That Shakes The Barley.

David O’Hara has joined the cast as Irish revolutionary leader James Connolly. The Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan will write the theme song.

All Films, the Oscar-nominated company that produced Tangerines, are in talks to reunite with McCann after the parties collaborated on the 2015 short »

26 May 2015 3:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who series 9 has hired Justin Molotnikov to take charge of two episodes.

This won't be the first time Molotnikov has tackled a BBC fantasy series, having helmed episodes of Merlin and Atlantis.

His involvement in the new series of Doctor Who was revealed by his client page on The Agency website.

It is currently unclear which two episodes he will direct, with two slots - episodes 9 and 10, and episodes 11 and 12 - still thought to be open.

Doctor Who's lead writer Steven Moffat has confirmed that series 9 will feature more two-parters, though some pairs of episodes may only be loosely linked.

Scottish filmmaker Molotnikov directed eight episodes of Merlin between 2011 and 2012, eight episodes of Atlantis between 2013 and 2015, and has also worked on Da Vinci's Demons.

Doctor Who - starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman - will return to BBC One this autumn.
