Where is Rosamund Pike finding the time? Fresh off of “Jack Reacher,” the actress is busy filming a significant role in Edgar Wright’s final instalment in the jokingly monikered ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy, “The World’s End.” Once she’s wrapped on that she’ll be reuniting with Simon Pegg on the set of “Hector and the Search for Happiness,” and she’s also attached to Stephen Brown’s “The Sea.” But not content with that busy schedule (and likely happy to capitalise on a sudden resurgence in popularity), Pike has added another project in the form of Pascal Chaumeil’s English-language debut “A Long Way Down.” Pike will join the film alongside Sam Neill, and they’ll both be joining a cast which already boasts Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots. The film is based on a book by Nick Hornby (“High Fidelity,” “An. »

After their customary quarter-final exit at the recent European Championships, Roy Hodgson's plucky though technically limited England are now charged with not botching up qualification for the World Cup in a group that looks a touch tricky. Moldova, ranked 137 in the world and first up tonight, aren't expected to pose much of a threat, but awkward ties against Ukraine, Poland and Montenegro loom on the horizon. Adrian Chiles hosts.

Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg have come quite a ways together. Following the immense success of Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, two comedic classics, Wright and Pegg are now big players in Hollywood (Pegg has roles in Star Trek and Mission Impossible, Wright wowed with Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and has Ant-man somewhere up his sleeve). Wright and Pegg are attempting to come full circle with the final installment of their Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (also referred to as the “Blood & Ice Cream” trilogy) with the upcoming The World’S End. Until recently, the project had been shrouded with secrecy, but the newest issue of Empire featured a few words from Wright and Pegg that gives us some clues to their next adventure.
The movie follows Pegg, as Gary King, who goes on a pub crawl with four of his childhood friends (one of which, is of course, »

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have finally unveiled some details on The World’S End, the concluding part of their ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy. Ever since Hot Fuzz shot cinema in the leg and splatted it with Dolmio, the loyal fan base of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been hoping for another collaboration. We’ve come close, as Pegg and Frost co-wrote and starred in Paul as well as playing the Thompson Twins in The Adventures Of Tintin, which was co-written by Wright. But nothing that would fit the criteria of Hot Fuzz and Shaun Of The Dead, ie. starring Frost/Pegg, written by Pegg/Wright and directed by Wright. For more on their collaborative history (Spaced, Jessica Stevenson etc), click here.
But finally, our zombie twatting heroes have opened up on The World’S End, the long awaited third film in the ‘Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy. »

The shining star of Showtime’s original programming, Dexter, the series which follows the trials and tribulations of a serial killer trying to balance family life and a career in law enforcement with murdering people, has been towing the line between disturbingly affecting and procedural mediocrity for over six seasons.
Whether you can no longer stand the sound of Michael C. Hall’s spell-it-out-for-you voiceovers, the sight of Deb pining for father (and brother) figures, and Laguerta’s leopard prints, or can’t wait to see how much further Dex can descend into moral ambivalence without blowing his cover (like me), no one can deny the success of the series. Therefore, to enrage haters and keep fans satiated until the show returns for its seventh season this fall, myself and a frequent commenter on my reviews of the sixth season, Christopher Elphick, have compiled a list of the best Dexter episodes thus far. »

In Season Two of the HBO smash drama Game of Thrones, Jon Snow becomes a true warrior. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, entitled "Game of Thrones' Emo Hero," in which I sit down with Kit Harington and talk about playing Jon Snow, fame, what’s to come in Season Two, Ygritte, Samwell, and why he refuses to wear a wig. Within the harsh world of HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones, based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, you either live by the sword or you die by it. In the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, court is a deadly pit of vipers, with each of the titular game’s players scheming and manipulating their way to higher realms of power and influence. Not everyone is engaged in these sordid power plays. Bastard-born Jon Snow is a child of the North, »

TVShack's Richard O'Dwyer faces 10 years in jail for operating website Us authorities say hosts links to copyrighted material
A judge ruled on Friday that a 23-year-old student can be extradited to the United States for running a website posting links to pirated TV shows and films, despite significant doubts over whether such sites break any UK laws.
The ruling threw Britain's contentious extradition treaty with the Us, which critics allege is greatly biased against UK nationals fighting their removal to America, under further scrutiny. It came just hours after a businessman from Kent lost an appeal against the decision that he should be sent for trial in Texas for allegedly plotting to send missile components to Iran.
Richard O'Dwyer, a computing student at Sheffield Hallam University, faces a potential 10-year term in a Us jail despite never having been to America or using web servers based in the country. When »

We're pretty sure country singer Jo Dee Messina is doing more than just "alright" right now. The two-time Grammy-nominated artist and husband Chris Deffenbaugh welcomed her second son today in Nashville. So what's the new little guy's name? Baby Jonah Christopher Deffenbaugh came in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces, and will be joining his three-year-old brother, Noah. "Noah couldn't wait to hold his little brother. He's so good with him. God has blessed us so much," Messina said in a statement. And as for mommy, she seems to be holding up all right, thanks to one thing in particular, "Omg! Ice chips never tasted so good. Yummy !" she tweeted. »
 Whether or not Kristen Wiig decides to do Bridesmaids 2 , what's obvious is that she's not wanting for work. The actress-writer-producer is already involved with several intriguing projects, and she may soon be attached to one more. Wiig, along with Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken, are circling roles in Errol Morris' Freezing People is Easy, based on Robert F. Nelson's memoir We Froze the First Man and a This American Life segment titled "You’re as Cold as Ice." Paul Rudd has been set for the lead role  of Nelson since last year. More details after the jump. Written by Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction), the fact-based tale revolves around Nelson, a TV repairman who attempted to devise his own method of cryogenic perservation in the 1960s. As you might imagine, things don't go quite as planned, and Nelson winds up having to apologize to the families of those he's tried and failed to freeze. »
