8 August 2014 7:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

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.

1. Helen Flanagan

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

2. Lettice Rowbotham

She's quite posh. She played the violin on Britain's Got Talent. It's such a weird rumour, it could possibly be true.

3. Gary Busey

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:

Under The Dome season 2 episode 1 review: Heads Will Roll

2 July 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Under The Dome is back for a Stephen King-scripted season 2 premiere, and it’s as just as much dumb fun as ever…

Review

This review contains spoilers.

2.1 Heads Will Roll

Under The Dome returns for its second season to remind us that there’s never a dull moment in Chester’s Mill. Nor one that makes sense. Nor one that isn’t filled by intense running, emphatic dialogue, leaps of illogic, or - now - killer lawnmowers. It’s all actually quite a lot of fun once you tune in to the show’s schlocky B-movie personality.

Speaking of schlocky B-movies, Stephen King - drafted in to write this second season opener - has a fine time in Heads Will Roll channelling his sole directorial venture, Maximum Overdrive. The 1986 film saw a passing comet cause Earth’s electrical items, from electric knives to ATMs, to become ambulant and go on a murderous rampage. »

Brit Up-And-Comer Joins David Yates' Tarzan

18 June 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A British actor to file firmly in the ‘one to watch’ bracket, Osy Ikhile has been recruited for the new 3D blockbuster take on Tarzan. According to The Wrap, Ikhile will be reporting for junglular duty alongside the double Oscar-nominated Djimon Hounsou.Ikhile is a man in a hurry. The 25 year-old Londoner is appearing in Ron Howard’s whale tale Heart Of The Sea, in which he plays a sailor named Peterson, and alongside Nicholas Hoult in the David Niven-penned dark comedy Kill Your Friends. He’s a face that fans of TV comedies Misfits, Fresh Meat and Twenty Twelve should already be familiar with.There’s no word on his Tarzan character, except that he’ll be taking a “key supporting role” that involves a chunk of time on set. Hounsou, meanwhile, will play a ‘villainous’ warlord, a qualifier that should make it easy to differentiate him from all the kitten-loving, »

‘Cuban Fury’ DVD Review

2 June 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Nick Frost, Rashida Jones, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Chris O’Dowd, Ian McShane, Olivia Colman, Alexandra Roach, Rory Kinnear, Kayvan Novak | Written by Jon Brown | Directed by James Griffiths

Tubby funster Nick Frost steps out as the lead in salsa-based rom-com Cuban Fury. Frost plays Bruce, a former teenage salsa dancing extraordinaire who dons his Cuban heels once more in order to woo his new boss Julie, played by the lovely Rashida Jones. Standing in Bruce’s way are unpleasant colleague Drew, a none-more sleazy Chris O’Dowd and his own paralysing neurosis and shattered confidence.

Despite coming from a very televisual background – its director, James Griffiths, is best known (insomuch as he is known at all) for his work on Episodes and its writer and most of its stars made their names in TV – Cuban Fury stands up as one of the better examples of a British rom-com in recent years. »

Review: We Are The Freaks

28 May 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Normal 0 false false false En-gb X-none X-none In 1990's England three friends embark on a crazy night out akin to Human Traffic.  Narrator, Jack (Jamie Blackley, Misfits), confesses he hates "rioters... politicians... archive footage... mobs... skin heads... goths... films where people talk to the camera..” as a montage of archive footage is shown, immediately suggesting Director/Writer, Justin Edgar (Large) is trying to be clever in his second feature, We Are The Freaks.

Jack explicitly states “This isn't a teen movie" but setting and content don't quite match this claim. Jack and pals are immature pre-university age, either miserably failing, arrogantly choosing to opt out or expectantly awaiting University acceptance letters; Jack plans to study to be a writer, Parsons (Mike Bailey, Skins) is content coasting and Chunks (Sean Teale, Skins) is happy living off the allowances his guilt-ridden extremely rich divorced parents dole out.

Celebrity Big Brother: Ronan Keating rules himself out

28 May 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ronan Keating has dismissed reports that he will be appearing in the next series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The Boyzone star took to Twitter amid mounting speculation that he would follow his bandmate Keith Duffy into the famous compound.

"Love all the chat about me and Big Brother," he wrote. "Please know i am not in talks with anyone regarding this. Nor will I be."

The rumours surrounding Keating appeared to stem from a light-hearted tweet he wrote a few weeks ago which included the phrase "day 2 in the Big Brother house" - but was actually in reference to a detox plan.

While the new series of Celebrity Big Brother won't begin until this summer's 'civilian' version has ended, rumours about who could be making their way into the Borehamwood bungalow have been circulating for some time.

Among the famous faces rumoured to be packing their bags are George Gilbey from Gogglebox, »

‘Monsters: Dark Continent’ Trailer: Mankind’s Greatest Weapon May Be Bad Acapella Rap

21 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Gareth EdwardsGodzilla is currently stomping and chomping its way through multiplexes around the world, and it was his feature debut four years ago that played a big part in getting him the gig. Monsters is an unassuming little film that cost less than 1/160th the budget of Edwards’ follow-up while dealing with some similar dynamics — namely very big monsters and very small people. They’re different beasts though as Monsters is a more intimate tale featuring just two people for most of its running time and only revealing its titular creatures with any degree of clarity in the third act. The film didn’t make much of a splash at the box office, but beyond catching the attention of the right people it also showed Edwards to be a highly capable and multi-talented filmmaker — in addition to writing and directing he also handled visual effects, production design and cinematography.

First look at ‘Monsters:Dark Continent’ trailer

19 May 2014 11:02 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Four years ago director Gareth Edwards wowed us with his monster movie, Monsters, and now he’s at it again. With Godzilla making waves at the box office, both because of its stunning effects and killer cast (including Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson), it’s no wonder that audiences are getting pumped for Edwards’ newest work, Monsters:Dark Continent. 

While Edwards will be leaving the directing of this film to Tom Green, whose previous works include directorial work on the hit show Misfits, Edwards will still be involved as executive producer of his hit film’s sequel. Unlike the first instalment, which centred around a journalist helping to get someone out of infected territory and to the American border, the sequel will focus on a soldier and his comrades. Check out the trailer, below, for more out of this earth action and super sized sand monsters.
