15 September 2016 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Sep 15, 2016

Howard Overman's Crazyhead is billed as a Buffy-style demon-slaying comedy horror, coming to E4 this autumn. Here's the first trailer...

With family teatime series Atlantis put to bed over at the BBC, creator Howard Overman has moved on to a new fantasy show, this time a horror comedy for E4.

Crazyhead stars Downton Abbey's Cara Theobold and Chewing Gum's Susan Wokoma as a pair of 'unlikely' demon hunters. It's a series looking to ride on Buffy The Vampire Slayer's coat-tails judging by the Buffy-alike intro to this first trailer:

Netflix has ponied up some cash for this project, which means it will have online streaming rights globally following Crazyhead's E4 premiere this autumn.

Here's what Misfits creator Howard Overman has to say about his new series, from the official E4 bumf:

White Girl,” September 2 – Elizabeth Wood, Writer and Director

Elizabeth Wood’s feature film debut was almost immediately deemed “shocking!” and “racy!” and “wild!” as soon as it debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, but underneath a film about throwing caution to the wind in the pursuit of both terrible decisions and the capricious joys of youth beats a big, honest heart.

Watch a trailer for season 2 of Fortitude

28 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A teaser trailer has arrived online for the second season of the critically-acclaimed Arctic drama series Fortitude; watch it below after the official synopsis…

Fortitude is a place like nowhere else. Surrounded by the savage beauty of the frozen landscape, the small town in the Arctic Circle is one of the safest towns on earth. There had never been a violent crime until one brutal murder revealed a much larger story lying deep beneath this seemingly quiet town.

After last year, Fortitude will never be the same again. As the town’s residents endeavor to rebuild their lives, a fresh new murder rocks the town and plunges it into turmoil oncemore. Meanwhile, out in the stunning icy wilderness, nature is growing more unpredictable, deadly, and dangerous.

In Fortitude, nothing, and no one, is ever what they seem.

Dennis Quaid Joins "Fortitude" In S2 Trailer

27 June 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Launching last year on both Sky Atlantic in the UK and Pivot in the Us, the Arctic Circle-set mystery thriller "Fortitude" scored good notices for its tale of a murder in a part English, part Norwegian community.

Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Richard Dormer, Sofie Grabol and Johnny Harris starred in the series and though ratings weren't great, they were enough to greenlight a second season which is currently slated to hit in early 2017.

Today, the first trailer is out for the second season and confirms the involvement of Dennis Quaid in this outing. Others onboard for the second round including Michelle Fairley ("Game of Thrones"), Robert Sheehan ("Misfits"), Ken Stott ("The Hobbit") and Parminder Nagra ("E.R.") along with returnees like Grabol, Luke Treadaway and Mia Jexen.

Iwan Rheon: Why the ‘Game of Thrones’ Psychopath Deserves to Be a Star

21 June 2016 2:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 6, Episode 9, “The Battle of Bastards,” below.]

When death is final on screen, one sad consequence is that an actor is out of work. And right now, one of the most talented actors on “Game of Thrones” is on the unemployment line — and he deserves more work, even if you might find it hard to forget the role he made unforgettable.

Ever since his introduction in Season 3, Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) has been a malevolent force of evil. While embued with a relatively common backstory for a young man of Westeros (thwarted son of a great lord hoping for greater power), Ramsay has committed crimes ranging from murder to castration to rape to flaying to patricide to baby murder and beyond, escalating to a point where he represents the worst impulses that might dwell in the human heart.

Game Of Thrones season 6 episode 9 review: Battle Of The Bastards

Game Of Thrones serves up its most expensive episode yet this week, and it's also one of the best...

This review contains spoilers.

6.9 Battle Of The Bastards 

When you can't get Neil Marshall, Miguel Sapochnik is a great next choice. Marshall has done wonders behind the camera for Game Of Thrones, but Sapochnik is no slouch either. Miguel Sapochnik is the man who directed the brilliant Hardhome last season, when we saw just how big the Night King's army is and just how little the Wildlings would be able to do to hold off that threat, Night's Watch or no Night's Watch. Now, Sapochnik is ready to show the world once more that he just might be one of the finest action directors working in television.

Battle Of The Bastards opens up with a brilliant special effects shot. A ball of pitch is loaded into a trebuchet and launched towards Meereen. »

Preacher Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘Pilot’

29 May 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of Preacher

If Tarantino did comic book adaptations Preacher would surely be at the top of his wish list. Frenetically shocking, blood soaked yet concise, what remains the biggest surprise in its opening minutes are Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg. For men who are more associated with Judd Apatow, man-child comedy and arrested development dramedies Preacher seems like an odd fit.

However with the Garth Ennis seminal classic it appears they have hit their stride. What first hits you after the initial style over substance moments pass is how quickly Preacher becomes something else entirely. Unlike Constantine which primarily felt studio based, AMC have grounded their bite of the cherry in a very real and recognisable locale.

Annville is a small Texan town populated by stereotypes and comes over like A Time To Kill and Devil’s Advocate in its sense of claustrophobic humidity, »

'Borg Vs McEnroe', 'Rita Hayworth', 'Mortal' among Ascot Cannes buys

26 May 2016 4:03 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Deals with Im Global, Sf Studios and Radiant Films.

Swiss distributor Ascot Elite has closed deals on a hat-trick of anticipated titles fresh from the Cannes Marche including sports biopic Borg Vs McEnroe, Elizabeth Banks-starrer Rita Hayworth With A Hand Grenade and André Øvredal’s fantasy thriller Mortal.

Ascot Elite has acquired all rights for German-speaking Europe (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) to the newly announced Borg Vs McEnroe.

The film, to be directed by Janus Metz, starring Shia Labeouf as John McEnroe, Sverrir Gudnason as Bjorn Borg and Stellan Skarsgard as Borg’s coach.

The film, which is sold by Sf Studios, centres on the rivalry between the two tennis stars, who met in 14 matches between 1978 and 1981, each winning seven apiece. But it is the 1980 Wimbledon final that became the stuff of legend, and is considered to be one of the greatest tennis matches of all time.

Preacher: 'It's bigger than Breaking Bad. It's a romp'

20 May 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s got a minister with superpowers, a hard-boozing vampire – and it’s the most kickass show of the year. Preacher’s star Dominic Cooper and creators Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin talk cow’s blood, chainsaw attacks and turning God into a villain

Seth Rogen knows how to create a smash hit. “You just cast British people,” he says. “That’s what you do on TV.” For Preacher, one of the most anticipated series of the year, he and his comedy partner Evan Goldberg tapped up Dominic Cooper for the title role – Jesse Custer, a small-town minister in Texas who’s trying to live a noble life when a vampire and some gangsters sent by God drop on his doorstep.

Cooper’s not the only one working on his deep-south lilt; Joe Gilgun of This Is England fame plays an Irish vampire named Cassidy who becomes Jesse’s best »

Review: Why Seth Rogen's 'Preacher' was smart to move away from the comics

17 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We live in an age of miracles when it comes to allegedly unadaptable books actually being adapted. For years, fantasy fans assumed no one could do right by George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, but then Game of Thrones became a phenomenon for readers and non-readers alike. Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books seemed too larded with historical detail (and the occasional extremely graphic rape scene) to seem plausible as a TV show, but the Starz version has won over most of her audience. Now comes AMC's Preacher, based on an acclaimed '90s comic book series, by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, whose apparent barriers to adaptation are so numerous and daunting that they make A Song of Ice and Fire look like Bridget Jones' Diary. The comic is deeply offensive on both spiritual and aesthetic levels — its recurring cast includes both »
