War and Peace … and then what?

8 February 2016 10:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Andrew Davies’s triumphant TV series has caused sales of Tolstoy’s epic to soar. Here are five more big reads to fill the gap – from Finnegans Wake to Gravity’s Rainbow. And every one is ripe for the small screen

Let the bells ring. War and Peace concludes in triumph. 5.7m viewers can’t be wrong. The critics agree: the man did it. He crammed Tolstoy’s massive quarts into half a dozen pint pots. Genius in a box set. Andrew Davies, reportedly, is signing up for Les Misérables. No warbling. No subtitles. If it has to be Victor Hugo I rather wish he’d gone for Toilers of the Sea, just to see how TV handled the giant squid (beats Moby-Dick any day of the week).

Davies’s breakthrough was Middlemarch, long ago in 1994. It was a book which Victorians like Trollope thought far too difficult for the »

Andrew Davies set to follow success of Tolstoy drama with adaptation for BBC of Victor Hugo novel

War and Peace bowed out with 5.7 million viewers on Sunday as it was revealed that scriptwriter Andrew Davies is set to follow the drama’s success with another period epic, Les Misérables.

Davies told the Telegraph he has signed up film producer Harvey Weinstein, who co-produced War and Peace, to the project, and is due to begin talks with the BBC. The Guardian reported earlier on Sunday that War and Peace producers Lookout Point were in “active” talks with Davies and his team about working on another “major classic”.

Timothy Omundson Sings 'Crazy, Silly' Galavant's Praises, Shares How Psych Rekindled His Love for Musical Theater

29 January 2016 9:15 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Timothy Omundson is singing a most happy tune.

Even though ABC’s Galavant is wrapping its sophomore staging this Sunday at 8/7c, the veteran actor cannot say enough about the ambitious musical-comedy, which this season pumped in a lot of heart on top of hummable tunes and anachronistic humor.

As deposed King Richard and his bestie Galavant ready to lead a zombie army into war with Madalena and Gareth’s kingdom of Valencia, the Psych alum shared with TVLine the story of the months-long journey that led him to revisit his love of musical-theater. (Now if only Omundson’s missus »

The Grease: Live costars, who play Kenickie and Rizzo in Fox's live musical telecast, still haven't puckered up to one another - on the mouth, at least. "Our first time in rehearsal, I'm like, 'Do we just start kissing off the bat? Like, how does this work?' " the 26-year-old told People Now on Monday. "We're like running the show through in our rehearsal space … I was like, 'Oh my gosh! We have to do the whole kissing scene' … so then it comes to our scene, »

The Danish Girl movie review: sometimes it’s hard to be a woman

13 January 2016 11:30 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Safe, conventional, and not particularly sympathetic to women, cis or trans. Mistakes the external signifiers of femininity with actually being a woman. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Lili Elbe was a transgender pioneer. She lived openly as a woman, even though she was born in a man’s body, in 1920s Europe at a time when such a thing was seen as perverted or actually clinically insane; she wrote the memoir Man Into Woman about her transition; and she was one of the first people to receive sex-reassignment surgery, which was then highly experimental; complications from it killed her in 1931. She’s an important person to be telling stories about, especially today, as we are starting to be more aware of the trials transgender people face, both publicly and personally, »

But wait. In the photo, Hathaway is wearing a blindingly bright red gown. Wasn't her dress of a metallic blue hue? Actually, no. It was beige (with patterns). Wait. Come to think of it, she actually wore a tux, not a dress. Or maybe it was all of the above. And more. How could that be? Well, the color, texture, format, and type of Anne Hathaway's outfits varied according to which 15 minutes of the Oscar telecast you watched on Sunday night, Feb. 27.

The Real Events That Tom Hooper Didn't Include in The Danish Girl, and Why

4 January 2016 1:57 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you haven't seen The Danish Girl, you're missing out. Not only are stars Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander racking up nominations for their performances, but the movie is also greatly entertaining and thought-provoking. The film, based on the book of the same name by David Ebershoff, tells the story of Lili Elbe, one of the first women to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Director Tom Hooper (Les Misérables, The King's Speech) has created a beautiful film, and I got the chance to talk to him before the movie was released. Read below to find out why it took him seven years to get the story to the big screen, what convinced him that Redmayne was right for the part, and what parts of Lili and Gerda Wegener's stories he didn't include. Mild spoiler warning! Popsugar: This movie seems to come in the middle of a flood of Lgbt movies. »
