14 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Gather round, you ne'er-do-wells, for another hearty helping of TV scoop!

It's the Tube Talk Q&A - providing you with the latest telly teasers and air-dates on a (mostly) weekly basis.

There is a rumour going round Channel 5 have picked up second run rights to Extant starring Halle Berry - can you find out if this is true?

Yes we can, Edward Perkins and no, it's not - someone has picked up the linear broadcast rights to Extant, but it ain't Channel 5.

The sci-fi thriller - which made its UK debut exclusively via Amazon Prime Instant Video - has in fact been acquired by Syfy UK.

The ten-parter - which also stars ER's Goran Visnjic, Looper child star Pierce Gagnon and Meryl Streep's wonderfully-named daughter Grace Gummer - will premiere in January 2015.

Will there be anymore My Mad Fat Diary?

Yes there will, Pipkin3 - after an agonising 8-month wait (eight months! »

Thn Turns 11! A Look Back At Our Favourite Films – Looper (2012)

26 November 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Hollywood News is eleven years old this month. That’s right, we are now well on our way to out teen years and boy have we come a long way since 2003. And it’s not just us, the film industry has gone from strength to strength during the last decade. They finally learned how to make a decent super-hero film for one. As part of our celebrations each of our team has been tasked with writing a piece on one of their favourite films of the last eleven years. This writer’s offering can be nothing other than Looper.

Released in 2012 and directed by the brilliant Rian Johnson, who will be directing Star Wars VIII don’t you know, Looper is a fantastic time-travel movie. Firstly having been a fan of Johnson’s work since Brick I was very excited for the release of Looper, and thankfully I wasn’t disappointed. »

Is Director A.J. Edwards Making a Mace Windu 'Star Wars' Spin-Off?

18 November 2014 7:55 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As of now, there are already two Star Wars spin-off films lined up after Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives next December. Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is already signed to direct the first one, arriving just one year after Episode VII, and Lucasfilm has already lined up Chronicle director Josh Trank to be at the helm of whatever spin-off will follow Episode VIII from Looper director Rian Johnson. However, is there a chance that another spin-off is in the works? The Better Angels director A.J. Edwards partook in a Reddit Ama and was asked about potential involvement in the revival of the Star Wars franchise. Read on! Now we're pretty sure that Edwards was just joking around (sarcasm is hard to detect in text, especially online), but the director responded, "Talking about it, not able to say a lot yet. It will focus on Mace Windu." Aside from the »

Shailene Woodley may join Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Oliver Stone's Snowden drama

15 November 2014 2:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Divergent" star Shailene Woodley is about to get political. The actress is reportedly in talks to join Open Road's untitled drama based on Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden, from director Oliver Stone ("JFK," "Platoon," "Savages") Woodley is in talks to play the girlfriend of Snowden, who will be played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper") according to The Hollywood Reporter. The controversial Snowden dominated the news cycle over the last year or so, after leaking classified information from the U.S. National Security Agency in 2013, and is currently living in asylum in Russia. The film will be based on Luke Harding's "The Snowden Files" and the upcoming "Time of the Octopus," written by Snowden's Russian lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena.  Snowden is also the subject of the acclaimed new documentary "Citezenfour."

Can ‘Dumb And Dumber To’ Outwit Holdovers?: Box Office Preview

13 November 2014 11:27 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Dumb And Dumber was one of those creatures that can exist only in a Hollywood ecosystem. It made a pretty healthy splash 20 years ago, opening at No. 1 with $16.4M on its way to a $127.2M domestic take. But getting stars Jim Carrey (then just coming off The Mask) and Jeff Daniels (who had wrapped Speed) reunited proved a logistical hurdle that couldn’t be leapt, and the stars went on their separate ascensions, seemingly leaving a franchise stillborn. But a DVD cult behemoth was spawned in their absence, and, two decades later, the long-awaited (by Farrelly fanatics, at least) reunion Dumb And Dumber To could bring the men to a place they haven’t seen in years: atop the box office.

Ddt will graduate on 3,152 screens this weekend and, given the success of raunchy comedy lately, seems likely to capture box office with a haul of $30 million-$32 million. The $40M movie, »

Star Wars: Episode VIII confirmed for Pinewood shoot

10 November 2014 10:51 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII will follow The Force Awakens and shoot at Pinewood in the UK...

You'd hardly call this story a radical surprise, but it's now been confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VIII will be shooting at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

That's where Star Wars: The Force Awakens (nee Star Wars: Episode VII) has been based, and that film finished production last week. Given that Ilm has opened up a London office, partly off the back of the clutch of Star Wars films expected to shoot in the UK, we suspect the bulk of the upcoming movies will have their production based in Britain. That's certainly been the word on them thus far.

Star Wars: Episode VIII hands things over from director Jj Abrams to Looper's Rian Johnson, then.

Set for release in 2017, the confirmation that Star Wars: Episode VIII would be »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: 'Interstellar' rage

10 November 2014 3:16 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Christopher Nolan made Memento, but he also made The Dark Knight Rises. Great filmmakers can make bad movies: This is not a particularly complicated equation. And Nolan's new space melodrama Interstellar is not a particularly complicated movie. The science is elaborate and insane, but the emotional stakes are simple: Father loves daughter, father saves humanity. But Nolan is one of our plottiest filmmakers. (Most films have three acts; Nolan's movies usually have at least six, usually out of order and/or overlapping.) I attempted to explain the plot of Interstellar, but even I ran up against some impenetrable cosmo-logic.

‘Star Wars’ Returning To Pinewood For ‘Episode VIII’

10 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The force is strong in Pinewood. The eighth instalment of the Star Wars franchise will shoot at the UK’s Pinewood Studios, Pinewood Shepperton chief exec Ivan Dunleavy confirmed in a far-reaching keynote address at the annual conference of the Confederation of British Industry.

The confab, which brings together employers from all sections of the British economy, had the added benefit of a guest appearance from R2-D2 on \stage with Dunleavy for the news. Filming on the seventh film in the series, the newly titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens, only recently finished at Pinewood.

In a bullish address on the importance of the creative industries to the British economy, Dunleavy noted they are worth more than £70 billion ($111 billion) a year to the U.K. economy, employing 2 million-plus people, and was growing much faster than any other part of the U.K. economy — up by nearly 10% in 2012.

During a keynote address at the annual conference of the Confederation of British Industry, Pinewood Shepperton chief exec Ivan Dunleavy confirmed that the eight instalment in Disney/Lucasfilm's Star Wars franchise would indeed return to shoot at the U.K. studio.

Before that though, Pinewood will play host to Sam Mendes' new James Bond flick, which will see Daniel Craig reprise the role of 007. »

In Defence Of... Brett Ratner's much-maligned X-Men: The Last Stand

10 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When news broke that Bryan Singer would be returning to the fold for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, much to the delight of mutant fan-peoples, the director sweetened the deal even further with a promise. "There will be some fixing," he said, hinting that his third X-flick (after X-Men and X2) would address perceived problems with X-Men: The Last Stand, aka the threequel Singer dumped in favour of Superman Returns.

Here's the thing: X-Men: The Last Stand didn't need fixing. In a world where movie threequels often topple promising trilogies, it stands out as a fun, action-packed, stakes-raising gambit that features some of the trilogy's boldest set pieces and more than a few gob-smacking twists. Picking up months after X2's downbeat, watery climax, we find the X-Men mourning the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) even as Worthington Labs announce they've found a mutant cure. Needless to say this divides the mutants, »

Review: Starry Eyes

8 November 2014 2:24 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

We’ve all made sacrifices to be able to do whatever it is that we want to do. Some more than others, but it’s just a fact that in life, there are moments and opportunities that present themselves and we’re faced with the question of “how far will you go?”, a question that based on the situation, could lead decent people to become either a different person or bring out who they were all along. Some films address that question and challenge their viewers to ask themselves that same question, how far would You go to attain that goal, that dream that you’ve always had? Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer’s brilliantly haunting film, Starry Eyes, brings that question to its audience, and gives them a film that like most Great films, plants a seed in your head, one that opens up into a film that can »

'Too Many Cooks': See the Insane Viral Video Hollywood Is Buzzing About

It's an 11-minute hallucinogenic odyssey that Looper (and future Star Wars) director Rian Johnson has declared worthy of being "in the Oscar running for best short." And since the people at Adult Swim have made it available online -- it debuted inauspiciously last month during a 4 a.m. programming block -- Too Many Cooks has blazed a trail across the Internet to become a must-see among in-the-know Hollywood creatives. What is it? That's a little hard to describe. From the demented mind of Casper Kelly, co-creator of other out-there Adult Swim titles like Stroker and Hoop and Your Pretty Face is
