Why You Should Get Hulu Plus

10 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.

With its own library of original shows (The Hotwives of Orlando) and online exclusives (Misfits, The Only Way Is Essex), going Plus is one thing you undoubtedly need to do this fall. Here’s why:

Relativity Snaps Up Eel Marsh House & The Woman In Black 2 For Us Release

5 September 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hammer Films’ gothic scarefest The Woman in Black was an undeniable hit back in 2012. The big screen adaptation of Susan Hill’s eerie novel pulled in close to $130 million at the international box office and managed to strike a chord with its native audience in the UK. Moreover, it comfortably shepherded Daniel Radcliffe away from the shackles of a certain boy wizard and allowed him to stretch his acting muscles as a competent leading man. (The latter point is debatable, but we digress.)

That said, the young British actor won’t feature in the upcoming sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, which is to be distributed by Relativity Media in North America following a recent deal penned during the Toronto International Film Festival. According to Deadline, the partnership between the studios is said to be north of seven-figures.

In Radcliffe’s stead, the horror sequel will star War Horse »

War Is Even More Hell in 'Monsters: Dark Continent' Trailer

2 September 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Before Godzilla, there was Monsters — director Gareth Edwards’ critically-acclaimed 2010 movie about the invasion of Earth by a race of giant, tentacled behemoths. This month, in the wake of Edwards’ success resurrecting the iconic Japanese monster, his own beasties are making their own comeback in Monsters: Dark Continent. With Edwards busy not only on the next installment of the Legendary’s Godzilla franchise, but also his upcoming Star Wars gig, he only served as executive producer on this follow-up, with directorial duties handled by Tom Green, known for his work on British television series Misfits and Blackout.

Latest ‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ UK Trailer

2 September 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Gareth Edwards may be tangling with bigger monsters and franchises in the form of Godzilla and Star Wars, but his very own Monsters continues forward in the form of Monsters: Dark Continent, directed by Tom Green. Green is responsible for some of the best episodes of the fantastic first two seasons of Misfits so hopefully his style will translate well to the monster focused sequel. Those worried about Edwards’ departure should note that he has given the project his full blessing and has even stated “I better watch my back,” in terms of the sequel’s quality. There’s still a lot of human drama in this sequel, as a group of soldiers venture into areas swarming with monsters, but we also see a lot more of the monsters themselves. Skins and Game Of Thrones star Joe Dempsie, leads the cast in what looks to be a genuine extension of the original. »

‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ Trailer #3: Destroy All Monsters

2 September 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Gareth Edwards’ debut feature-length theatrical release Monsters is very much a human character-oriented story – one that’s told against the backdrop of a fantastical setting, where mysterious gigantic creatures now roam the Earth. In other words, it’s the low-budget predecessor to Edwards’ Godzilla movie franchise reboot, and a far cry from the upcoming sequel, titled Monsters: Dark Continent (which Edwards only produced).

The new trailer for Dark Continent (see above) builds on the previous teasers, by emphasizing combat sequences that pit humans against the invading “monsters”, over the more intimate human drama in the movie. A few years ago Edwards gave his blessing for another filmmaker to come in and play in the Monsters sandbox; by the look of it, director Tom Green (Misfits, Blackout) has, if nothing else, put a very different spin on the universe that Edwards did, with ...

Watch: UK Trailer for 'Monsters: Dark Continent' Heads into Combat

2 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Killin' martians, baby." The most recent trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' breakthrough indie sensation, showed off the larger scale story at the center of the follow-up. Now we get to see even more action as we follow a group of soldiers tasked with taking down some of the creatures across the globe. Thankfully though, it doesn't seem like they've completely thrown out the character-driven angle that made the first film so great as there seem to be hints of drama akin to Zero Dark Thirty or Black Hawk Down. This actually looks pretty decent, so we hope it ends up in the Us. Here's the new UK trailer for Tom Green's Monsters: Dark Continent from Vertigo Films UK: Monsters: Dark Continent is the sequel to Gareth Edwards' Monsters. Tom Green ("Misfits") makes his feature directorial debut with a script from Jay Basu. »

New Clip For Monsters: Dark Continent Takes The Alien Action Global

2 September 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vertigo Films has debuted an all-new trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the anticipated sequel to 2010’s beloved cult hit that is due to release later this year.

With Gareth Edwards’ upcoming directing slate brimming with blockbuster projects, Vertigo Films has passed the directing torch over to relative newcomer Tom Green — who previously worked on hit UK TV show, Misfits. And, in order to whet the appetites of eager fans, the studio also posted a brief synopsis for the upcoming sci-fi continuation.

Two soldiers embark on a life-altering mission through the dark heart of monster territory in the deserts. By the time they reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront the fear that fighting the monsters is just the beginning of their war.”

Clearly, much has changed since that ill-fated and wayward Nasa probe crash-landed in the Mexican desert. In fact, Monsters: Dark Continent is set to take »

The summer isn't quite over yet. Before you pack away your suncream and start your Christmas shopping, there's still time for one more series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2014.

Emma Willis will be introducing the new bunch of D-listers and faded stars on August 18, as they head into the famous compound for nearly a month of silliness, arguments over booze and daft ego-clashing.

But who is going in? We've gathered up the 17 latest rumoured housemates who may (or may not) be making a new home on Channel 5.

It's a reality show. Bears still poop in the woods. Helen Flanagan is being tipped to take part by red top newspapers.

Douglas Adams’ ‘Dirk Gently’ Gets Interconnected With TV Again

6 August 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He last appeared in a short-lived BBC Four series starring comic actor Stephen Mangan. Now Douglas Adams’ literary anti-hero Dirk Gently is to cross the pond for a second stab at small screen success courtesy of an adaptation by Chronicle writer Max Landis (pictured). Following the adventures of a detective who utilizes the principles of quantum mechanics in order to solve the unfathomable, the UK version featured original scripts by Howard Overman (Misfits). It is unclear whether the Us effort will be a straight (in as much as Adams can be seen as straight) take on the books or if the concept is being fleshed out for potential pick-up. The novels were also realized on radio by another Dirk (as in Maggs), who cast Harry Enfield in the title role.

A clear fan, Landis has enthused about the prospect of bringing Gently to the grindstone of a bigger marketplace:
