‘Liar’ Star Joanne Froggatt Says Rape ‘Shouldn’t be a Taboo Subject in Our Society’ (Exclusive)

17 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Liar, Joanne Froggatt (of Downton Abbey fame) plays school teacher Laura Nielson, who accuses a handsome widowed doctor (Ioan Gruffudd) of drugging and raping her. The two go out for dinner, where they hit it off, before heading back to Laura’s apartment. Once inside, they flirt over a couple glasses of wine before Laura wakes up alone in bed the next morning, with the sick feeling that she’s been sexually assaulted.

The British miniseries airing on SundanceTV isn’t so much a show about rape, but rather, what happens when someone reports a rape. What unfolds over the six episodes (drawing to a “satisfying conclusion” on Wednesday, Oct. 18, Froggatt tells Et) is scrutiny of Laura’s past as well as the night of the incident, a decision to go public that polarizes friends and family as the show’s anti-heroine becomes more and more unstable.

Godless: first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Netflix show

16 October 2017 10:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Kirsten Howard Oct 17, 2017

The first Godless trailer showcases Michelle Dockery and Jack O’Connell in a Western series produced by Steven Soderbergh...

Netflix's new offering Godless looks to put an intriguing twist on the conventional concept of the Western.

With Steven Soderbergh, indie darling and esteemed big screen blockbuster director of the Ocean’s Eleven film franchise, attached as an executive producer to the 7-episode limited series created by Scott Frank, look for some twists and turns not traditionally found in the arid, dusty, tumbleweed-strewn genre.

Have a look...

Godless story

The trailer focuses on the trials and tribulations of an outlaw, named Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell). With the events of the series taking place in the 1880s American West, we see intermittent Kung-Fu-esque flashbacks to Roy’s upbringing, where he was raised by anti-hero outlaw Frank Griffin (Jeff Daniels) - and with whom he eventually becomes partners in crime. »

Et Obsessions: David Fincher’s ‘Mindhunter,’ ‘Time and the Conways’ and More!

16 October 2017 9:40 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things – and here’s what we’re most excited about this week:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Wonderstruck

Oscar-winning filmmaker Todd Haynes reunites with his Far From Heaven star, Julianne Moore, for a film that appears as wondrous as the title suggests. But after the very adult Carol, Haynes is doing something more family-friendly, about the parallel journeys of a young, deaf girl (Millicent Simmonds) who runs away from home in search of her acting idol (Moore) in 1927 and a boy (Oakes Fegley) who runs away from his Minnesota home in search of his father in 1977.

Wonderstruck is in theaters Friday, Oct. 20.

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Mindhunter

With Mindhunter, a new series about two FBI agents researching serial killers in the early days of criminal psychology, David Fincher reimagines the cop thriller for TV. Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany play the two agents, who use their research »

Busan Film Review: ‘Promise at Dawn’

16 October 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

However abetted by fiction, Romain Gary’s autobiographical novel “Promise at Dawn” is more of a roaring yarn than most memoirs have a right to be: Covering over 20-odd years in the celebrated French author’s early life, it’s a bildungsroman that covers pluckily overcome poverty in Poland, sensual education in the south of France and WWII aviation derring-do in Africa and Europe, its many colorful vignettes sewn through by the fierce love between Gary and his vivacious single mother Nina. It’s a story that, from its publication in 1960, veritably begged to be a movie, and it’s perhaps a shame that Gary, also a filmmaker in his own right, never took a stab at it himself. Jules Dassin caught only part of the book’s magic in his 1970 adaptation; now, Eric Barbier’s long, sometimes lively, sometimes lumbering version isn’t really an improvement.

‘Game of Thrones’ On-Demand Viewership Dominance Is Finally Broken, By ‘This Is Us’ — Ratings Watch

13 October 2017 4:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Game of Thrones” has remained a powerful force in on-demand viewership, weeks and months after Season 7 ended. But streaks are meant to be broken: According to the most recent weekly report from Xfinity, NBC’s “This Is Us” has taken over as the new most-viewed on-demand series on the service.

Viewers can’t get enough of “Thrones,” which had been the No. 1 show on Xfinity On Demand every week since May 22 — essentially, since the end of the regular TV season. But now that fall TV is officially underway, it’s probably no surprise that audiences are now looking to catch up with the Pearsons of “This Is Us.”

Users are also sampling new series on demand including ABC’s “The Good Doctor,” HBO’s “The Deuce,” Fox’s “The Orville,” and ABC’s “Marvel’s Inhumans.”

Why Michelle Dockery Likes to Be Surprised by Letty’s Choices on ‘Good Behavior’ (Exclusive)

13 October 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On the TNT series Good Behavior, which returns with season two on Oct. 15, Michelle Dockery -- best known for playing the coolly aristocratic Lady Mary Crawley on Downton Abbey -- returns as Letty Raines, an American con artist sprung from prison with the intent of applying her relatively limited resources, chief among them her wits, to a fresh start.

It’s a 180-degree turn from her Downton character, says Dockery, who in fact was offered the part just as Downton was coming to an end in 2015. “But what I love about Letty and Mary is that they’re both complex, deeply flawed women,” she says. 

And like Lady Mary, who thawed substantially over six seasons, Letty is evolving. In this new season, having regained custody of her young son, Jacob (played by Nyles Steele), Letty aims to establish at least a semblance of domestic stability with her hired-assassin lover, Javier (Juan Diego Botto).

‘The Vietnam War’ Premiere Is the Best Performing PBS Episode Since ‘Downton Abbey’ Series Finale

13 October 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War” is arguably one of the most important television events of the year, and viewership has backed that up. In particular, its first episode has garnered record numbers, and the 10-part series continues to air and be streamed throughout the country as well as in Vietnam.

On the telecast side, the premiere of “The Vietnam War,” which aired on Sunday, Sept. 17, drew an audience of 9.6 million viewers with a 6.0 household rating, according to a report released by PBS. That makes it PBS’ highest-rated telecast for the season and best-performing telecast since the series finale of “Downton Abbey” in March 2016. It’s also one of the highest-rated episodes of all time for a Ken Burns/Lynn Novick series, far above their acclaimed “Prohibition,” “The War,” and “Jazz.” That 6.0 household rating also means that “The Vietnam War” is more than 300 greater than PBS’ average primetime rating. »

Outlander: Read This If You Want to Know If Brianna Reunites With Claire or Jamie

12 October 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We hope you weren't too distracted by the Claire-Jamie reunion on Outlander not to shed a few tears for Claire and her daughter, Brianna. The two part ways in 1968 after Brianna tells her mother that it's Ok to leave - Brianna is an adult now and doesn't need her mother the same way she did as a child, so she wants her mother to be happy and that means being with Jamie. It still isn't an easy decision. Actress Caitriona Balfe told us that Claire deciding to go back to Jamie "means saying goodbye to her daughter, probably forever. It's not something she takes lightly."

Outlander's Caitriona Balfe Addresses Claire and Jamie's Verra Minimal Aging

12 October 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Before this past Sunday’s Outlander, the last time Claire and Jamie Fraser saw each other, they were in their 20s. After roughly two decades apart, they reunited (or at least started to) at the end of Episode 5… looking much like they had on the eve of the Battle of Culloden, despite the intervening years.

And that, star Caitriona Balfe says good-naturedly, is just something viewers of the show are going to have to get on board with.

The Ritual review – lads' weekend turns surreal in lost-in-the-woods Brit horror

12 October 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rafe Spall stars in an efficient horror film with obvious hints of Deliverance and The Blair Witch Project

The Ritual is an efficient, well-made if programmatic Brit horror, with good effects and a big monstrous reveal intelligently withheld. It is adapted by Joe Barton from a 2011 bestseller by Adam Nevill, and directed by David Bruckner – who worked on the very interesting and creepy compilation movie V/H/S.

A group of guys go on a hiking weekend in a remote Swedish wood – they are Luke (Rafe Spall), Hutch (Rob James-Collier, who deserves more than to be known only as Mr Barrow from Downton Abbey), Phil (Arsher Ali) and Dom (Sam Troughton). They’ve been mates since uni and going away together is a tradition with them. But one of the gang is missing, having been killed during a robbery in a late-night shop after one of their lads’ nights out, »

The Saddest TV Shows That Make TV Critics Cry – IndieWire Survey

10 October 2017 10:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the saddest show? Which show makes you cry the most? (Old and current shows are all fair game.)

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

I just wrote something on this very topic! And I think these are two different questions. Which show makes me cry the most? In the balance across its entire series run? I think the answer has to be “Friday Night Lights.” I’m a sucker for underdog sports stories in general, but “Friday Night Lights” could make me cry in so many different ways, from what happens to Jason Street in the pilot to what Matt Saracen goes through in »

Here's How You Can (Basically) Live in Downton Abbey

10 October 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Downton Abbey may have aired its series finale over a year ago, but it turns out, we never really said goodbye.

The show is returning stateside — no, not with a movie. (Not yet, at least!) Instead, it’s back in the form of an exhibition that will travel across the United States. And People’s got a sneak peek at what’s inside the soon-to-come exhibits, complete with narration from Mr. Carson — or rather, his real-life counterpart, Jim Carter, as he’s out of “uniform” and in modern garb.
