BAFTA TV Awards Winners: Complete List

8 May 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — In another strong year for British television, historical drama “Wolf Hall,” Shane Meadows’ “This Is England ‘90” and “Peter Kay’s Car Share” came up trumps at the BAFTA Television Awards, which unspooled on May 8 in London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The ceremony, which was hosted by Graham Norton, saw BBC2’s “Wolf Hall” win best drama series as well as leading actor for Mark Rylance’s depiction of Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power through Henry VIII’s royal court.

Upon receiving the award for best drama series, helmer Peter Kosminsky attacked the U.K. government’s treatment of the BBC, warning that its future was “under threat, make no mistake about that.”

On May 12, Blighty’s government is due to publish its white paper on the future of the Beeb, with the scope and funding of the corporation under threat. Kosminsky noted that government proposals that threatened the »

Drew Barrymore to Serve as Narrator on NBC Dating Reality Show ‘First Dates’

28 April 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Drew Barrymore has joined NBC’s Ellen DeGeneres-produced dating show “First Dates” as the narrator, Variety has learned.

Based on the UK format, “First Dates” explores the experience of a first date — the promise of potential love when it goes well and the hilariously awkward moments if it crashes and burns. The alternative series follows a variety of real first dates happening throughout one night at the same restaurant in Chicago. The daters are of all ages, backgrounds and from across the country. The audience will be along for the ride in a viewing experience that plays like a real-life romantic comedy and at the end of each episode, it will be revealed if participants want to see each other again for a second date.

Funny enough, Barrymore starred in the 2004 Adam Sandler pic titled, “50 First Dates,” though there’s no correlation between the NBC series and the film. »

Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Movie The Do-Over Releases Bizarre First Trailer

21 March 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Keeping the proverbial foot pressed firmly on the pedal, Netflix has unveiled the latest Adam Sandler-fronted actioner on its way to the streaming service, a mere three months after the much-derided Ridiculous 6.

Entitled The Do-Over, Sandler’s latest creative effort has been pegged for launch on May 27. Starring opposite David Spade is Sandler’s bumbling bank manager, who finds his life “turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure.”

Sporting new identities with a fresh outlook on life to boot, what follows is a sleazy sizzle reel of low-key action shootouts and scantily-clad women. It’s by no means a trailer to win over the Sandler naysayers, particularly when you factor in the critical panning directed at Ridiculous 6, but we’ll reserve final judgement until we lay eyes on a full-length trailer.

New to Streaming: ‘River of Grass,’ ‘Arabian Nights,’ ‘Paris Belongs to Us,’ ‘The Forbidden Room,’ and More

11 March 2016 9:52 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, »

Is TLC's new dating show Undresssed just naked hype?

2 March 2016 7:32 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Series billed as a ‘courageous experiment’ will see see strangers undressing each other and climbing into bed, where they have to answer questions

Hands up if you can guess what happens in pay-tv channel TLC’s new show Undressed … yup, you guessed it. Billed as a “courageous dating experiment”, it sees two strangers undress each other and “climb into bed on a first date in an exciting new series that accelerates intimacy and explores the accepted rules of attraction”, according to Katie Hopkins’s channel TLC. The couple have 30 minutes alone together wearing nothing but their underwear, during which they will be given “probing” questions via a screen and tasks “designed to rapidly foster relationships”. Blimey – it makes First Dates look like the Antiques Roadshow. After the 30 minutes the couples decide whether to continue the date or leave the room.

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perception

2 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. As interesting as this concept is, what really made Groundhog Day as legendary as it is, isHarold Ramis’ Groundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman Phil mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again.

Groundhog Day in a traditional sense is a comedy, but the film actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes, one idea being Nietzsche’s eternal recurrence, in which we’re doomed to live the same life over and over again. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years. Arguably, no film has taken this concept as it is presented in Groundhog Day to as absurd of lengths. 

In honour of Groundhog Day, and since we’re feeling metaphysical, »

Some Lunatic Figured Out How All Of Adam Sandler's Movies Connect To Each Other

29 January 2016 3:21 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You generally wouldn’t think that Adam Sandler’s films would all be connected, but as it turns out, they actually might be. One eagle-eyed Sandler fan recently got lost down a never ending rabbit hole and unearthed connections and links between the comedian’s various cinematic endeavors. Yep, that’s right, there are dozens upon dozens of characters that bind the Sandlerverse together. And it’s the sort of revelation that might haunt you forever. Ok, so Shawn Kohne took to YouTube to unveil his findings after he originally notieced that Dan Aykroyd’s character in 50 First Dates mentioned Callahan Autos from Sandusky, Ohio. This immediately rang a bell to Kohne, and his research led him to Tommy’s Boy, where Dan Aykroyd’s character in the bawdy comedy actually works for that very same company.  Most people might just »
