New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

Questions We Have About Disney's 'Cinderella' (Trailer)

19 November 2014 2:26 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh is a strong filmmaker, from "Dead Again" to Shakespeare to "Thor." "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" was not his finest hour. So he may be ready to redeem himself with something really good. There's more leeway with fairy tale family fare.  Producers: Alison Shearmur (ex-studio executive), David Barron ("Harry Potter"production manager) and Simon Kinberg ("X-Men" writer-producer) have solid mainstream studio credits. Cast: Lily James ("Downton Abbey") and Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones") are strong as the two romantic leads, while we can't complain about Wicked Stepmother Cate Blanchett or Fairy Godmother Helena Bonham Carter, who can handle anything.  Writer: Aline Brosh McKenna is a veteran studio screenwriter, from "The Devil Wears Prada" to "We Bought a Zoo." But it's always tough to know who did what; Chris Weitz ("About a Boy," "Golden »

The Magical New Cinderella Trailer, Poster, And Images Sparkle

19 November 2014 11:42 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Wednesday, Walt Disney Studios debuted the beautiful new trailer for Cinderlla. A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, Cinderella brings to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually-dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.

The trailer introduces audiences to Lily James (“Downton Abbey”) in the iconic role of Cinderella, a beautiful young woman with a gentle spirit who, despite the cruelty and abuse she is subjected to from her stepmother and her daughters, continues to remain positive and steadfast, as well as the first images of Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”) as the wicked stepmother, Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”) as the dashing, intelligent and thoughtful Prince, and the one-of-a-kind glass slipper.

The slipper was designed by three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell (“The Aviator”) and produced by Swarovski, and is a magnificent work of art.

Allen Leech, Matthew Goode on 'The Imitation Game' and Working With Benedict Cumberbatch

19 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Often biopics, even loosely based ones, can be dull, stiff, and uninteresting.

Not so with "The Imitation Game," director Morten Tyldum's story about the life of Alan Turing. Played by Benedict Cumberbatch, Turing as a character is fascinating to watch. The supporting cast, which features Matthew Goode ("The Good Wife") and Allen Leech ("Downton Abbey"), is an essential part of keeping the film in semi-jovial territory.

Moviefone Canada spoke with Leech, Goode and Tyldum at the Toronto Film Festival, where they chatted about the gravity of a movie like this, how historically accurate their characters are, and of course, what it's like working with Cumberbatch.

Cinderella's First Trailer Is Absolutely Magical

19 November 2014 8:19 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

First Maleficent and now Cinderella. Disney has been putting a live-action spin on classic fairy tales, and the first full trailer for the latest adaptation has arrived. Lily James (Downton Abbey) looks pitch perfect as the titular orphan whose life is turned upside down by an evil stepmother (played with devious delight by Cate Blanchett) and two ugly stepsisters. The trailer brings back all the magic that we may have forgotten, from the friendly mice to the kindly fairy godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) to the pumpkin-turned-carriage. And my goodness, the dress Cinderella wears to the ball is gorgeous. But of course the real highlight of the trailer is seeing Game of Thrones' Richard Madden out of his fur cloaks and into Prince Charming's wardrobe. Yep, I'm sufficiently excited for this. The movie opens on March 13! Here's the first teaser, released in May. Front Page Image Source: Disney »

Here’s the Trailer for Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella

19 November 2014 7:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After trying his hands at Hamlet and Thor, Kenneth Branagh is now bringing another classic fable to screen. His Cinderella has Lady Rose from Downton Abbey in the title role, with Robb Stark playing Prince Charming. In a sign of what the actual good parts are in this thing, he also got Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter to play the evil stepmother and fairy godmother, respectively. The mice made it in, too, but unfortunately, they don't appear to sing. »

First Cinderella Trailer Reveals Visual Splendor And A Villainous Cate Blanchett

19 November 2014 7:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kenneth Branagh’s vibrant Cinderella adaptation is looking more and more like a must see for the under-13 crowd. After dropping a teaser yesterday, Disney just released the first full-length trailer for its new take on the classic fairy tale, starring Downton Abbey actress Lily James as the titular heroine.

In the first extended look at the film, we get to see a lot of James, who certainly looks the part and showcases some serious acting chops as well, but the real showstoppers are Cate Blanchett as her snobby, garishly clad stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as her ebullient fairy godmother. Both actresses look to be having a blast with the project. Elsewhere, Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden puts his famed baby blues to good use, and we get a glimpse of Captain America: The First Avenger breakout Hayley Atwell in what looks to be a key scene with Cinderella. »

Lily James Sparkles in New Trailer for Disney Remake of ‘Cinderella’ (watch!)

19 November 2014 7:26 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Lily James plays a risque aristocrat in the English period series “Downton Abbey,” but she’s utterly enchanting in a new trailer for Disney’s upcoming remake of the classic fairy tale “Cinderella.” The English actress is joined by a stellar cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden and Helena Bonham Carter. “Cinderella” is an oft told tale that Disney immortalized in an animated 1950 musical fantasy released by Rko Radio Pictures. Now, however, “Cinderella” is a live action film that includes Disney’s trademark brand of CGI special effects. [...] »

Watch a Very Wicked Cate Blanchett Tear Down Lily James in New 'Cinderella' Trailer

19 November 2014 6:29 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The new Cinderella trailer previews the extent of Cate Blanchett's onscreen wickedness as the stepmother in the Kenneth Branagh-directed feature. "Wouldn't you prefer to eat when all the work is done, Ella?" she suggests to Downton Abbey's Lily James in the title role. And don't try calling her anything but "Madam" or donning an old but beautiful dress, Cinderella — it'll only get that garment turned into rags while you're locked away in the attic, without that glass slipper, which fairy godmother Helena Bonham Carter calls "comfortable."

Watch the new trailer for Kenneth Branagh's 'Cinderella'

19 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Once upon a time, in a land far, far, away Sir Kenneth Branagh directed a new, live-action version of Cinderella. Well, technically, he made it in London last year. But this fresh, Disney-backed take on the beloved tale—which is released on March 13 next year —does have what sounds like a fairytale cast, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as the Prince, Derek Jacobi as the King, Stellan Skarsgård as the King's scheming adviser (is there really any other kind?), and Downton Abbey actress Lily James as Ella. »
