BBC Two is 50: Share your memories and thoughts

14 April 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BBC Two is 50 - the British Broadcasting Corporation's second eldest child hits the half-century mark this Sunday (April 20) and, in those five decades, has delivered some phenomenally popular and powerful programming.

Kim Shillinglaw has a lot to live up to - with every channel controller from the very first, Michael Peacock, to the most recent, Janice Hadlow, serving up a range of diverse, entertaining and even groundbreaking shows.

Since 1964, BBC Two has become renowned as a home for great comedy - from the surreal The League of Gentlemen and Shooting Stars, to much-loved classics like The Likely Lads and The Goodies and modern favourites such as The Trip and The Wrong Mans.

But there's a tradition of fine drama too - running from the original The Forsyte Saga (1967) to Line of Duty (2012-present) and taking in such iconic series as I, Claudius (1976) and Edge of Darkness (1985).

Meanwhile, popular entertainment and »

Philip Seymour Hoffman Hunts Spies in 'A Most Wanted Man' Trailer

11 April 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following a premiere at Sundance in January, the spy thriller A Most Wanted Man is heading to theaters this summer, marking one of the final performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film is an understated and reserved thriller in the vein of Michael Clayton and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with Hoffman anchoring the film with one hell of a grizzled performance (read my review from Sundance here). The film also stars Rachel McAdams (whose German accent needs some work), Willem Dafoe, Daniel Bruhl and Robin Wright. It's a spectacular slow burn that is undoubtedly worth seeing. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, originally from Yahoo: A Most Wanted Man is directed by Anton Corbijn (The American) and written by Andrew Bovell (Edge of Darkness), based on John Le Carre's novel of the same name. German spy Gunther Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is tracking down Issa, »

Mel Gibson Wants Some of That Liam Neeson Money, Joins ‘Taken’-Like Thriller ‘Blood Father’

28 March 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Is there any hope for Mel Gibson? It was almost four years ago that a string of obscene voicemail messages obliterated the actor’s career and then salted the very earth it sprung from. But Gibson hasn’t given up. He’s actually done the opposite, making a new movie every year since 2010 – Edge of Darkness, The Beaver, Get the Gringo and Machete Kills, with The Expendables 3 due out this year. Add another onto that list, because Gibson has just signed onto something called Blood Father. According to Deadline, the film has just put all its major pieces in place: Gibson will star, Jean-Francoise Richet (of Mesrine and 2005′s Assault on Precinct 13 remake) will direct and Peter Craig (The Town) will write the screenplay, based on his own novel. The story sounds just like every other “grizzled old man kills people for some reason” action movie these days: a teenage girl witnesses a murder and »

How Jed Mercurio made Line of Duty unmissable TV

21 March 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Old-school scheduling and a good old-fashioned interrogation scene have been key in making Line of Duty the pride of BBC2, says Mark Lawson

Warning: this blogpost contains spoilers

There were obvious risks in declaring Broadchurch the "best TV drama of the year" at the beginning of spring 2013, but, last March, it already seemed safe to award the title. Twelve months on, it's clear that Line of Duty is going to take some beating to the 2014 prize. Although many have just discovered the series through the traditional and social-media coverage that a hit TV show now attracts, the first series in 2012 was one of BBC2's biggest successes.

Even so, creator Jed Mercurio has managed to top even his own standards, as viewers learned that Keeley Hawes' Di Denton, who had seemed at different times to be a perpetrator and a victim, was something of both. She had helped to »

Paranoid celluloid: conspiracy on film

7 February 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'If I'm wrong, I'm insane. If I'm right, it's worse': in conspiracy films – from Rosemary's Baby to State of Play – solving the crime does not bring peace. Michael Newton investigates a rich cinematic genre

Some believe that JFK was shot by his driver, some that Bobby Kennedy was killed by one of his guards; some believe the world is ruled by a Yale fraternity, some by lizard-aliens in disguise; some believe that Obama is a Communist mole; some that, back in 1966, Paul McCartney died. These notions are, at best, deluded; but as potential pitches for an as yet unmade Hollywood movie, they might just secure the contract. For, in movies, you can believe that the moon shots were faked, or that men are replacing their wives with compliant robots, or that space shuttles are firing earthquake-inducing weapons, or that the world itself is a delusion – and in each case you could be proved right. »

Rake TV Review

22 January 2014 3:47 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The new Fox comedy, Rake, is the next entry in the category of television shows remade from overseas efforts, and while it doesn’t come with all the same hurdles as most similar efforts, it has a tricky road ahead of it. The normal course would be to talk about the differences in comedic styles inherent in moving something across the pond, a problem Fox will soon face when it tries to “Americanize” the beloved, and wonderful, Gavin & Stacey with the upcoming Us & Them. This time, the show is from Australia, originally starred Richard Roxburgh, and aimed for a dark and tragic brand of comedy that was almost completely unique.

Roxburgh was not only brilliant, but brilliantly cast, relaying enough charm and delivering the proper form of wit to keep the character engaging and likable, no matter what he did. A modern version of a frequent side character in Elizabethan »

New on DVD/Blu-ray: Machete Kills (2013)

19 January 2014 11:55 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills” is as insane, over-the-top, and colorfully bloody as you’ve heard. The first “Machete” was a surprise hit for Rodriguez, but apparently moviegoers weren’t all that interested in following the continued adventures of Danny Trejo’s superhero-ish character the second time ’round. The sequel was a bona fide flop, recouping just $15 million worldwide. That’s almost $30 million less than the original. Even considering Rodriguez’s famous low-budget/high-thrills filmmaking style, the film was still a major disappointment. “Machete Kills” now slays onto DVD and Blu-ray this week courtesy of Universal Studios.

Sundance Film Review: ‘A Most Wanted Man’

19 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Intelligence is both the subject and the approach of Anton Corbijn’s “A Most Wanted Man,” a meticulously plotted, steadily absorbing Hamburg-set drama that casts a cynical yet compassionate eye on the complexities of counterterrorist work in the post-9/11 era. Adopting the same cool, methodical approach that he did in his offbeat procedural “The American,” Corbijn succeeds here in large part because his attention to nuance and detail so fully complements that of the German operatives at the story’s core. Starring the Teuton-accented trio of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, a risky casting decision that ultimately pays off, this decidedly low-pulse endeavor will put off viewers who like their spy thrillers with a bit more oomph, but should court plenty of intrigue among discerning arthouse-goers who see the name “John le Carre” and know what they’re in for.

‘A Most Wanted Man’ International Trailer: Pawn or Possible Terrorist?

3 January 2014 10:40 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Dutch photographer and music video director Anton Corbijn turned heads with his narrative feature debut Control, which chronicled the short, troubled life of Ian Curtis, lead singer of influential post-punk band Joy Division. His follow-up was 2010′s The American, a moody, stylish thriller starring George Clooney as a brooding assassin, which got mixed reviews (read ours here) but established Corbijn as a director with a unique visual aesthetic.

Corbijn will apply his visual approach to Edge of Darkness screenwriter Andrew Bovell’s adaptation of the John le Carré novel A Most Wanted Man. It’s been some time since the announcement that Philip Seymour Hoffman (Catching Fire) would star in the espionage thriller, but after a long period of relative silence on the project, an international trailer has debuted online.

Must Watch: International Trailer for Sundance's 'A Most Wanted Man'

3 January 2014 8:14 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You are looking at me, at us, but we don't exist. Not legally, not officially." After being set for a premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival later this month, Anton Corbijn's adaptation of John Le Carre's thriller A Most Wanted Man is finally being teased with an international trailer. Philip Seymour Hoffman shines as German spy Gunther Bachmann, a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Hamburg. This looks just as good as Tinker Tailor Solider Spy and maybe even more exciting. Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Daniel Bruhl and Willem Dafoe are along for the ride. We'll definitely be catching this one in Park City, Utah later this month, so stay tuned to check out our review. Watch below! Here's the first international trailer for Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, found on YouTube: A Most Wanted Man is directed by Anton Corbijn (The American) and written by »
