‘Julian Fellowes Presents Doctor Thorne’ Review: Amazon’s Soft But Fun Tonic For ‘Downton Abbey’ Fans

17 May 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Devoted fans of the now-departed Downton Abbey will likely never settle for anything less, but creator Julian Fellowes and Amazon have a soft tonic to ease the discomfort. Debuting on May 20 on the streaming service after having played in the UK earlier this spring, Julian Fellowes Presents Doctor Thorne is a standard English period piece straight out of the best parts of the 1850s. Based on the third novel in Anthony Trollope's beloved Chronicles of Barsetshire series… »

The Current Debate: Pop Anthems for Cannes

17 May 2016 3:21 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The premiere of Andrea Arnold’s American Honey at Cannes on Sunday saw the director and cast show off a few dance moves during their red carpet photo-op, in what Vanity Fair, perhaps channeling a Downton Abbey character, called a “charmingly youthful moment.” Red carpet attire excepted, the spontaneous performance apparently fit right in with the film, which includes a pop soundtrack and a dance scene of its own, per The Telegraph’s Tim Robey:Twice, during Andrea Arnold’s rapturously scuzzy road movie American Honey, Rihanna and Calvin Harris grace the soundtrack with “We Found Love”, their euphoric 2011 dance-floor smash that invites you to drop everything, get high and lose yourself. It’s first heard over the tannoy in an Oklahoma Walmart, where main characters Star (Sasha Lane) and Jake (Shia Labeouf) clap eyes on each other, while the latter’s crew of wasters, waifs and strays grab provisions up and down the aisles. »

With 'Downton Abbey' Over, Creator Julian Fellowes Wants a Movie—and a Cup of Tea

16 May 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Why did "Downton Abbey" work so well with Anglophiles in America? Were we longing for a past elegant civility missing in our culture? "It's not elegance and silver and footmen and all that stuff," said Julian Fellowes, his pinky ring glinting in the sunshine as he stirred his tea at the Four Seasons. "It's more fundamental. It has to do with order, knowing what’s what."  Fellowes has the Aaron Sorkin problem — as a writer, his plummy British voice is so unmistakable that he had to write every episode of "Downton Abbey," which ended its sixth season late last year and now faces its last shot at an Emmy. (It's won 12 over the years, the bulk in its first two seasons.)   Now, Fellowes wants a "Downton" movie to come together sooner rather than later. When "Downton" star Allan Leech recently revealed that negotiations were in the works, the project abruptly screeched to a halt. »

BBC Set to Launch Netflix and Amazon Rival Subscription Service

16 May 2016 5:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brit pubcaster BBC has been given the green light to launch a new paid-for subscription service to rival Netflix and Amazon, according to a report from The Daily Telegraph.

The project, which is understood to have the working title Britflix, could see the Beeb potentially partner with rival ITV and “a number of production companies” to launch the service, including NBC Universal, which owns programs such as “Downton Abbey.” The project is believed to still be in the early stages of development.

The long-awaited White Paper on the future of the BBC was unveiled on May 12 and in it, the corporation was called to develop “some form of additional subscription service,” paving the way for the corporation to provide a mixed-model of licence fee funding. Under the new charter renewal, which unspools in 2017, culture secretary John Whittingdale said that the BBC would for the first time be able to charge »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

15 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits• Last Year's Winner: Peter Dinklage, "Game of Thrones" • Was It an Upset? Not really, though some thought Jonathan Banks and Ben Mendelsohn had a shot. • Still Eligible? Yes• Hot Streak: Jim Carter has been nominated every year (he's been eligible) for "Downton Abbey," but he's yet to win.• Fun Fact: The actor tied with the most wins in this category — Aaron Paul — will be competing in the Lead Actor race (in "The Path") for the first time in his career.  In 2015, it was virtually impossible to pick the winner of the Supporting Actor race because each dramatic contender had at least one good reason to believe they could win. Looking back it makes sense that Peter Dinklage would take home the trophy considering the groundswell of support for "Game of Thrones," but that's something that can't really be predicted until the awards start rolling in. So we're back to square one for. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Slack Bay’

13 May 2016 3:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Set two years before “Downton Abbey” on a wind-blown inlet along the northern coast of France, Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay” adds a surreal twist to the peculiar clash between the classes witnessed in Europe, circa 1910. For Dumont, who has spent his entire career wallowing in the mud and misery of this particular region (his own home turf), “Slack Bay” feels both more and less like a movie than anything the misanthropic filmmaker has done before. It’s a period piece, for one, allowing him to indulge a novel sense of pageantry. But more importantly, it’s a return to comedy for a grump who found redemption via humor in his last outing, “Li’l Quinquin,” and while this one — which landed a competition slot at Cannes — offers better commercial prospects, both in France and abroad (thanks in part to the participation of silly-acting movie stars), Dumont is still finding his feet in the genre. »

Casting has been announced for Crazy Face, a bold new comedy horror series from the BAFTA award-winning creator of ‘MisfitsHoward Overman, which begins filming this week in Bristol.

Filled with Overman’s dark humour and unexpected twists, Crazy Face is described as a funny, gripping series about friendship, love and facing your demons that follows the angst and exorcisms of an unlikely duo of demon hunters.

But some have unfinished business: scores to settle, blood to spill, axes to plant in people's heads...These tormented souls work through their issues by possessing the living. Most of the time they walk freely amongst us, unseen by all but a special few and Amy is one of those few. »
