'Reign' review: Romantic fiction only enhances history

17 October 2013 8:38 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Reign" is not a historically accurate portrayal of Mary, Queen of Scots' teen years. But that shouldn't matter -- the CW drama is historical fiction and succeeds admirably in giving viewers a tasted of 16th century life in the most fun way it can.

You don't want to miss this one.

A brief history of "Reign"

Set in the mid-16th century, "Reign" focuses on the Scottish Queen Mary (Adelaide Kane) during her teen years at the French court. A ruler since she was only 6 days old, Mary is expected to marry the heir to the French monarchy, Francis (Toby Regbo). Although the show (fortunately) only skirts around the issue, the basis for all of this is both standard dynastic alliances and a desire to uphold Catholicism in the face of expansionist and Protestant policies in England.

Mary is expected to save herself for Francis, of course, but there are »

How Does 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Composer Bear McCreary Come Up With The Score?

15 October 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

We're big fans of composer Bear McCreary around here, from his work on "Battlestar Galactica," "Da Vinci's Demons," and more. So how does the prolific musician put together the score for a show like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."? Not like this. Not like this:

Yeah, so not quite how he actually does the score, but it is fun to see him goofing around on the stage. To get a little more in depth view, you can check out this video:

And here's another little snippet:

Biggest takeaway here is that McCreary is using an entire live orchestra, which is kind of amazing. The "S.H.I.E.L.D." theme is pretty great... And now we know why.

What do you think of the "S.H.I.E.L.D." score? Let us know in the comments below or hit us up on Twitter! »

Da Vinci's Demons season 2 trailer

14 October 2013 1:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Trailer Louisa Mellor 14 Oct 2013 - 08:42

Da Vinci's Demons is returning in 2014, with more episodes, more locations, more hair, and more adventure...

One of many geek truffles sniffed out by this weekend's Nycc er, pig (we're already regretting this dreadful analogy) is this rather exciting trailer for season two of Fox and Starz' Da Vinci's Demons

The season one finale saw our hero in a tricky spot and below is proof that not only did Leonardo survive the cliff-hanger, but he survived to travel to Peru, get hair extensions, and seek knowledge that may bring an end to all wars.

In the run-up to season two, we'll have plenty more on Da Vinci's Demons, gleaned from a fun day out Den of Geek spent on the hugely impressive set, where, we kid you not, the clever production designers had reconstructed Macchu Picchu, in a car park, in South Wales. Ambition »

Nycc: David S. Goyer and Tom Riley Tease Season 2 of Da Vinci's Demons

13 October 2013 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Even though Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most recognizable figures in history, few are aware of the details of his youth in Florence, Italy. Upon realizing that da Vinci had no television presence, David S. Goyer seized the opportunity, tapping into the wealth of historical information, combining it with some fictional elements, and churning out the Starz series, "Da Vinci.s Demons." Just days after the show's April 12, 2013 premiere to record-breaking numbers, the show locked in a second season and discussions regarding a third are currently underway. Focusing on a young Leonardo da Vinci (Tom Riley), "Da Vinci's Demons" highlights the burdens of the legendary inventor and artist's intellectual genius. In season two, Florence is in turmoil, threatened by »

TV Promos: Black Sails S1, Da Vinci's Demons S2

12 October 2013 9:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Appearing at New York Comic Con to promote its early 2014 line-up, premium cable network Starz took the opportunity to unleash two trailers.

The first is the official trailer for its Michael Bay-produced piracy drama "Black Sails," a prequel to the Robert Louis Stevenson classic "Treasure Island". While numerous teasers have been released so far, this marks a true 'official trailer'.

The other trailer is the very first look at the second season of the David Goyer-produced genre-heavy period drama "Da Vinci's Demons". As suggested during the first season, the trailer seems to confirm that Da Vinci (Tom Riley) and several other characters make it to the New World as we glimpse elements of Incan civilisation.

Check them both out below:

'Da Vinci's Demons' and 'Black Sails': Starz teases its 2014 series at New York Comic-Con

11 October 2013 5:25 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The settings of Starz's series "Black Sails" and "Da Vinci's Demons" are separated by an ocean and a few hundred years in time, but they are both very much in keeping with the Starz brand of highly charged period dramas.

The cable channel released trailers for Season 2 of "Demons" and the inaugural run of "Black Sails" at New York Comic-Con on Friday. Both are full of men declaiming about destiny and honor, battle scenes and steamy sex.

"Black Sails," which premieres in January, is a prequel to "Treasure Island" focusing on Capt. Flint (Toby Stephens) and a young John Silver (Luke Arnold).

"Da Vinci's Demons" picks up with Leonardo (Tom Riley) working to defend Florence against the machinations of Rome while searching far and wide for the Book of Leaves and his own history. It's set to return in the spring.

NBC orders 'Constantine' TV series with David Goyer: DC movies crossover on the way?

27 September 2013 10:38 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's hard to imagine that it was a coincidence that Fox ordered a Batman TV series called "Gotham" the night "Marvel's Agents of Shield" premiered, but is it the DC Comics television show that TV viewers deserve? Another new comic book adaptation has been announced that has a big connection to the upcoming DC films, "Batman vs. Superman" and "Justice League."

NBC is working on a TV series based on "Constantine," a DC character previously brought to life in a 2005 Keanu Reeves film. The script will be written by "Da Vinci's Demons" showrunner David S. Goyer, who is also writing the upcoming "Batman vs. Superman" film.

Goyer also was involved in the writing of Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy, as well as the screenplay for "Man of Steel." It seems like he is being shaped to be the Joss Whedon of the DC Cinematic Universe -- especially since »

DC's "Constantine" Coming To NBC

27 September 2013 5:36 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While DC may be lagging behind at the movies, on the small screen they seem to be moving faster than even Marvel is at the moment.

There's the currently airing "Arrow" on The CW, "The Flash" spin-off which could hit next Fall, and a pre-Batman themed "Gotham" set to go straight to series Fox.

Now, a series adaptation of "Hellblazer" is in the works over at NBC who has committed to a script plus penalty. "Man of Steel" scribe and "Da Vinci's Demons" showrunner David S. Goyer will pen the script alongside Daniel Cerone ("The Mentalist")

Like the comic, the series follows the enigmatic con man and reluctant supernatural detective John Constantine who must defend the human race against dark forces from beyond.

The character was previously adapted for the screen in 2005's "Constantine" starring Keanu Reeves, albeit a relatively loose adaptation.

DC's Constantine TV series in development

27 September 2013 1:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Louisa Mellor 27 Sep 2013 - 09:23

NBC is developing a Constantine TV series with Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel writer David S Goyer...

We've barely had time to digest the news about live-action Batman TV series Gotham being ordered by Fox, when news arrives that another DC property is being prepped for telly treatment (insert tedious simile about comic book TV adaptations and buses). 

Chain-smoking occult detective and magician John Constantine, who recently moved into a new home in eponymous comic series after beginning life in Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run in the eighties and continuing in DC and Vertigo's Hellblazer until this year, is planned for a TV debut on NBC.

The network has committed to a "script plus penalty" deal for Constantine, meaning that even if it isn't produced, writer Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and producer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel, »

David S. Goyer talks Dark Knight, Superman and Call of Duty: Black Ops

24 September 2013 1:10 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Veteran screenwriter: 'Once we start seeing video games that have more memorable characters, you'll see better movie adaptations'

Games narrative considered in the same breath as cinema and television? Plenty of people – many of them gamers – may still snort at the idea. But there is growing cross-pollination between these artforms.

Screenwriter David S. Goyer is one example. He's best known for his work on films including Blade, the Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel, as well as TV shows FlashForward and Da Vinci's Demons.

But he also wrote for the two Call of Duty: Black Ops games, and as a gamer himself, is in a good position to compare and contrast games narration to its more established cousins.

"The film industry has been around for 100 years, and modern video games have been around for 20 or 25 years. If you compare it that way, the games industry is still in its fledgling days, »

Tom Riley jumped into the twenty-something boots of Leonardo Da Vinci for Starz's "Da Vinci's Demons."

Looking back on the first season of the show, out today on Blu-Ray and DVD, the British actor said the accomplishments of the genius Da Vinci had a bit of an effect on his daily life.

"He's utterly inspirational," Tom told AccessHollywood.com, down the phone from Wales, where production is in full swing on Season 2. "It certainly inspires you to not be lazy, the fact that he never stopped thinking or working, [and ...
