‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Makes Even Less Sense if You’ve Never Seen a ‘Transformers’ Movie Before

23 June 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Where is Shia? Why is Stanley Tucci playing Merlin? Is that a robot butler voiced by Mr. Carson from “Downton Abbey”?

These are just some of the questions that come to mind while watching “Transformers: The Last Knight,” the fifth entry in Michael Bay’s billion-dollar franchise based on a line of toys, and the first one I’ve seen. These thoughts occur to me half-formed, which is fitting since that’s also how the plot seems to have been dreamed up by the film’s three credited screenwriters.

What We’ll Be Looking for in the Upcoming Downton Abbey Movie

23 June 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For those that love period pieces Downtown Abbey is one of the most beloved shows to come along within the past few decades. It depicts an aristocratic family known as the Crawley’s and their domestic servants between the period of 1916 to 1926, and shows how world events affect the family and their surrounding environment. In a sense it is a certain point of view that allows the story to develop as these events are seen to change the family’s views and beliefs as they move along carefully proscribed story arcs.

‘Downton Abbey’ Movie: 8 Possible Storylines to Pursue Even After Everybody’s Had Their Happy Ending

22 June 2017 5:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Downton Abbey” ended on the best possible note possible when it wrapped up after six seasons in 2016. Every character that fans cared about had a happy ending. People paired off — even the ones downstairs — and some had babies or babies on the way, a new business venture was started – and better yet, nobody was accused of murder.

Now comes word, according to a recent report, that a “Downton Abbey” movie will likely start cranking into production in 2018. Creator Julian Fellowes has been diligently working and reworking the script, and the cast has publicly stated that they’re game to return to Downton.

But where can it go from here? Short of resurrecting Matthew (Dan Stevens) from the grave for some creepy zombie triad love story, this was as tidy and pleasant an outcome as a fan could hope for. It will be intriguing to see what conflict the movie brings as a matter of course while storytelling but not tarnish the happiness that was granted the characters after so many hard times.

Read More: ‘Downton Abbey’ Creator Julian Fellowes Reveals He’s Working on a Film Version

With very few clues to go on though, it’s not clear what will be in store for the Crawleys and friends when they return. The series’ timeline ended around 1925, and Fellowes had stated that he didn’t want to bring the story into the 1930s, so that leaves a window of five years for a time jump. Based on our knowledge of the characters and of general history, here are some of the things we’d want to see in the “Downton Abbey” movie:

The Crawleys in the Workforce

This was already in the works with Tom (Allen Leech) and Henry (Matthew Goode) teaming up to be used cars salesmen. Hopefully that business is flourishing, and maybe even Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) will get involved because of course she’s not going to be a very involved mother even though she’ll have two (or more?) kids by the time the movie rolls around. We could see her taking charge of some innovative business ideas like driving around town to draw in female customers or arranging motor tours to Downton.

Mary Softens

Mary has been and can be a really garbage person at times, but Matthew brought out the best in her. It’s no accident that Mary only after she’s with Henry, that she commits a completely selfless act by not stealing Edith’s wedding-day thunder to reveal she’s pregnant.

A Really Good, Modern Nanny Arc

With the exception of the horrid Nanny West, who had called poor little Sybbie a “wicked little cross-breed,” the nannies haven’t been part of the fold either upstairs or downstairs much. Although it’s accepted that the nobility don’t really have a hand rearing their children, this could all change. Edith is far more involved with her daughter Marigold anyway, and who knows how Tom’s experiences in America may have changed his views. Mary is probably the most traditional, but with the lines blurring between classes, the nanny or nannies could become an indispensable family friend. Or it could be a friend they have already.

Stop Before the Great Depression

Given that this is probably going to be the last time we’ll see the “Downton” cast together since they’re no longer under contract and have been scattered to the winds on different projects, let’s not end on a really depressing (heh) note or cliffhanger. Besides, 1929 is also when frozen food was invented, and we really don’t want the knowledge of that to send the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith) into an early grave. That said, the age of innovation can’t stop, won’t stop, and we’d love to see someone talking about the wonders of TV or talkies.

Ripped From the Headlines

While we don’t want to see the Great Depression happen, it’s always intriguing to see events of the day pierce the Crawley bubble. We can’t imagine that Edith (Laura Carmichael), the new Marchioness of Hexham, will fully give up journalism, especially since she’ll want to be a good role model to Marigold, and so we could see her getting involved with the biggest news items in some form. The British occupation of Shanghai and the resulting protests could create some new dramatic situations in which lines are drawn about imperialism. And we could see someone, maybe Daisy (Sophie McShera) or Edith getting pulled along the tide of women’s suffrage when women over 21 finally get the vote. Oh, and since Princess Elizabeth is born in 1926, there must be some diehard royalists who will be obsessed with her every move and appearance.

Read More: The ‘Downton Abbey’ Series Finale Brings All the Ships Into Port

Thomas Barrow Tries to Find Love

Sadly, this wishlist item is probably one of the most difficult storylines to make happen given the time period. As with Rose’s interracial romance that “Downton” tried and failed to make happen, a straightforward romance for Thomas (Robert James-Collier) would be improbable or at least incredibly difficult, and we do not wish Thomas any more pain. Homosexuality at that time was seen as indecent and criminal, consent not even part of the discussion, and it’s no wonder Thomas had issues. That said, despite society’s condemnation, queer people still existed and yes, even loved. We’ll leave the logistics to Fellowes.

Anna and Bates Will Continue to Live Happily Ever After

Nothing bad can or will happen to them ever again. They get as many babies at they want and are very, very happy. We don’t care if that makes for boring storytelling. With rape, accusations of murder, jail time – and hey did we mention rape? – they’ve been through enough already. Ok, maybe some new medical treatment can give Bates (Brendan Coyle) some false hope about losing his limp, but it doesn’t, and Anna (Joanne Froggatt) can tell him how much she loves him because of his bum leg anyway. But that’s it.

The Requisite Giant Celebration

It’s not “Downton Abbey” without a really big set piece gathering everyone together. While we wouldn’t say no to a ball, a picnic or outdoors village activity might be the best because that would mean the servants wouldn’t be required to work too much, even though so many of them have their own separate lives now. A picnic is more egalitarian. But for old times’ sakes, maybe Mrs. Patmore (Lesley Nicol) and Daisy could bake something up again. And we’re not exactly sure what a happy and married Mr. Carson (Jim Carter) and Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan) would look like, but we imagine them dancing and maybe partaking in some drinks. Who else? Lord and Lady Grantham (Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern) doting on their grandchildren, and Cousin Isobel (Penelope Wilton) finally enjoying a life of her own with Lord Merton (Douglas Reith) would be essential, with wry commentary by the Dowager Countess of course.

22 June 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Based on the best-selling novel by Lissa Evans, the delightful and heartwarming period piece, Their Finest, arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD on July 11 from Lionsgate; Digital HD on June 30 and On Demand on July 11 from EuropaCorp. From the producers of Brooklyn and Carol, Their Finest takes place in Britain during World War II and tells the story of a film crew as they create a movie to boost the country’s morale after the Blitz. Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Golden Globe winner Bill Nighy (2007, Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television, Gideon’s Daughter) lead an all-star cast in what Andrew Barker at Variety considers “a relentlessly charming romantic comedy.” Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day), the Their Finest Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

1940, London, the Blitz.

Grab a Cup of Tea and Sit Down, Because a Downton Abbey Movie Is on the Way!

22 June 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Waiting for the Downton Abbey movie to finally get made is like waiting for Lady Edith to catch a break - there's a good chance it's never going to happen. The British period drama ended its sixth season in the Us in 2016, and ever since, the production team behind the show has been hinting that a feature film will eventually make its way to screens. Although we've fallen for the same song and dance before, it seems like the Downton Abbey movie has officially been given the green light, with the project heading into production next year. "We are working on getting the script right and then we've got to figure out how to get the (cast) together," Michael Edelstein, president at NBCUniversal International Studios, recently told the Associated Press. "Because as you know, people go on and do other things. But we're hopeful to make a movie sometime next year." Apparently Julian Fellowes, who wrote the TV series, has also been tasked with writing the script for the movie (meaning more sassy lines from Lady Violet, which is something we can all get behind). The only thing giving us pause? The cast had no idea it was happening. "Well, tell my agent, because we're still waiting to know," Laura Carmichael, who played Lady Edith, joked with the AP after being asked about it. "We're hoping that will happen soon." Sophie McShera (aka Daisy Mason) was also out of the loop before speaking to the AP, noting that the press had "got confirmation before us." Luckily she's just as down for the project as Carmichael. "We have no idea if that's happening. But we would all love to be part of the film if it was to happen, for sure," she said. Hugh Bonneville, who plays Lord Grantham, also noted earlier this year that he considered a movie version of the show "highly unlikely." "There is no script that I have read, or any deal in place, for a Downton movie," he said. Then again, Michelle Dockery told fans the opposite, promising them that a movie was "very, very likely," and that "there is potential for a film . . . it may not be over yet." So, who should we believe? Since things are still up in the air we'll just have to wait and see, but an NBCUniversal spokesman did confirm to Variety that the studio hopes to put the movie into production in 2018. Fingers crossed! »

Downton Abbey movie to go into production in 2018

22 June 2017 5:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in January of this year, Julian Fellowes revealed that he’s been working on a script for a Downton Abbey movie, and that while it was yet to receive the green light, he expected that it could move forward.

Well, it seems that is now looking very likely, as NBCUniversal International Studios president Michael Edelstein has told the Apr that a Downton movie has been in the works for some time, and is slated to begin production in 2018.

“We are working on getting the script right and then we’ve got to figure out how to get the [cast] together,” said Edelstein during the opening of Downton Abbey: The Exhibition in Singapore. “Because as you know, people go on and do other things.
