The estate of Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle has sued Miramax, Roadside Attractions and director Bill Condon, claiming that the upcoming movie starring Ian McKellen in the story of the later life of the famous sleuth, “Mr. Holmes,” infringes on stories that still remain under copyright.
The movie, set to open on July 17, depicts an aged, retired Holmes looking back on his life and getting involved in an unsolved case.
“Reviews of its early screenings, together with trailers released in the United States, reveal that the motion picture uses the same elements from Conan Doyle’s copyrighted stories,” the estate’s lawsuit says.
The estate notes in its lawsuit that although many of Conan Doyle’s »

It looks like Seth Rogen is going to continue peeling back the curtain on production on AMC’s Preacher pilot; this past weekend, he dropped the first image of Jesse Custer and Arseface from the long-awaited comic book adaptation, and now he’s debuted another image from the set of the show…
Rogen is directing the Preacher pilot alongside Evan Goldberg, while the cast includes Dominic Cooper (Agent Carter) as Rev. Jesse Custer alongside Ian Colletti (Rake) as Arseface, Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Tulip, Joseph Gilgun (This Is England) as Cassidy, Elizabeth Perkins (Big, Weeds) as Vyla Quinncannon, W. Earl Brown (Deadwood) as Sheriff Hugo Root, Tom Brooke (Sherlock) as Fiore and Lucy Griffiths (True Blood) as the original character Emily Woodrow.

Another day, another slew of behind-the-scenes photos to pick through. With yesterday serving up a barrage of stills for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, today sees the pendulum swing back in Marvel’s favor and, specifically, Captain America: Civil War. We’ve already see the First Avenger engage in fisticuffs with Frank Grillo’s Crossbones, but this latest selection turns the attention to some of the film’s supporting characters: Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.
It appears as though the production is still located in an African marketplace, which will presumably stand in for an area near – or indeed within – Black Panther’s Wakanda. Reports suggest it is here that a global incident forces the world’s elite into action over the superheroes, before rolling out a divisive registration act that essentially seeds the titular battle, headed up on each »

Tom Brooke (Game of Thrones, Sherlock) has been added to the cast of AMC's Preacher pilot from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, joining Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun. Deadline is reporting that the British actor has snagged a series regular role on the upcoming television adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic as Fiore, one of the two Adephi angels sent to Earth to bring back Genesis. Besides his small screen work, Brooke has also appeared in movies such as »

The Damages actor will guest-star on Masters of Sex‘s third season, appearing in two episodes as a love interest for Janney’s returning Margaret Scully. Donovan’s Graham is a confident scientist whose relationship with Margaret brings them to Masters and Johnson’s clinic.
Season 3 of Sex — bowing Sunday, July 12 at 10/9c — jumps ahead to 1966, when Masters and Johnson deal with the glare of the national spotlight as their sex study is finally unveiled.
Looks like the main cast of AMC's upcoming Preacher pilot just got a little bigger. British talent Tom Brooke has nabbed a series regular role on the show as 'Fiore', one of two Adelphi angels tasked with watching the half-demon, half-angelic creature named 'Genesis'. The show, currently being developed for TV by This Is The End duo Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, is based on Garth Ennis & Steve Dillion's 90s comic book series of the same name. Brooke joins a cast that so far includes Agent Carter's Dominic Cooper in the lead as 'Jesse Custer', Ruth Negga (Agents Of Shield) as his ex 'Tulip' and Joseph Gilgun (Misfits) as an Irish vampire named 'Cassidy'. A relative unknown, Brooke may seem familiar to Game Of Thrones fans, having portrayed one of Walder Frey's spawn back in Season 3. He has also guest starred on Sherlock, and in British comedy, The Boat That Rocked. »
With the pilot episode of Preacher currently shooting, we’re assuming this is news that AMC has known for a while, but has only just chosen to announce. Regardless, it’s still nice to report that Tom Brooke is joining the show.
That was hardly his first rodeo, though, he also played Lothar Frey in season 3 of Game Of Thrones. He’s also appeared in pretty much every British crime-based show going, including Ripper Street, Lewis, Foyle’s War, Hustle and Thieves Like Us. He also appeared in cinematic comedies Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason »
Oh, Sherlock. What one hand giveth, the other taketh away, or something – while we're ecstatic to hear that series four's filming dates have been confirmed, we're less ecstatic that it likely won't air until 2017.
That's a three-year gap between series three and four, the longest the show has had to date, although this time we will have the non-canon Victorian special to tide us over (expect that to air sometime in the 2015 festive period, possibly, maybe).
It's early days, but below we've rounded up all the information we have so far about Sherlock's fourth run.
When will it air?
No air date has been confirmed, and it likely won't be until weeks beforehand. But based on previous transmission dates, we feel fairly confident in saying that Sherlock series four, episode one will premiere on Sunday January 1, 2017, with episodes two and three following on January 8 and 15.
Steven Moffat announced last »
Press Release (via TV By the Numbers) -- New York, NY – May 14, 2015 – "AMC today announced its new eight-part drama series “Humans” will premiere Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 p.m. Et/Pt. Set in suburban London, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – a highly developed, artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart. Penned by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks,” Spooks: The Greater Good) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama “Real Humans,” the series explores the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred.

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?
Daniel Craig will make his 007 comeback later this year with the release of Spectre, a continuation of the story started in Sam Mendes's Skyfall. Craig has re-energised the Bond franchise since his debut in 2006's Casino Royale, and all signs point towards Spectre being another worthy addition to the series.
Digital Spy runs down everything you need to know about Spectre ahead of its cinema debut on October 23.
A threat from James Bond's past will return
It's all in the title. Crime syndicate Spectre (Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), headed up by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, regularly attempted world domination in Sean Connery's '60s outings, but they've been absent for decades due to an ongoing legal dispute with Thunderball co-creator Kevin McClory.
McClory passed away in 2006 and his Bond rights were eventually regained by Eon/MGM, »
There’s room for upset, anti-austerity speeches and a revelation about the statues in this year’s television awards
Among some of the more laboured (sorry) jokes about voting and the election, Jessica Hynes’s moving anti-austerity speech for W1A (BBC2) was a standout moment. “There’s something I do want to say. I am from a single-parent family, and my mum was a full-time worker to support me and my sister. I’m really worried about the cuts that are coming to state education for people in low-income families. Because I don’t think low income means low talent or low education or low intelligence.” Hynes also mentioned the work of Arts Emergency – could a resurgence in political awareness in the arts be on the cards under the next five years of Tory rule?

"We've got, I think you can safely say, the Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson of a generation - we want to see them do it in the proper outfits, just once," Moffat said backstage at last night's (May 10) House of Fraser BAFTA Television Awards.
"That makes them the only two who've done both [period and contemporary] - apart from [Basil] Rathbone and [Nigel] Bruce, who we venerate, of course."
"We were ridiculous," he admitted. "Running around, saying, 'He's wearing a deerstalker! Look at that moustache!' It's very exciting."
The actor played Jefferies in the true-life drama, about a retired schoolteacher vilified by the press after being falsely accused of murder.
Watkins told Digital Spy that ITV deserved credit for airing a piece of drama that was "not necessarily mainstream" in a primetime slot.
The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies was also crowned best Mini-Series, beating out Cilla, Our World War and Prey.
