Marvel's Agents of Shield S2 character speculation Part 1

22 September 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Marvel's Agents of Shield returns at 9/8c on Tuesday 23 September 2014 in the Us, and hopefully soon after in the UK. For fans of the first season, it's highly anticipated, particularly in terms of how the show will continue the gripping storylines established in the later part of the first season. So if you haven't seen the first season yet, be aware that spoilers follow.

Some of the show's marketing for Season 2 has been in the form of character posters, featuring each character's face along with “What will [he or she] become?”, and then telling us that we can find out on Tuesday 23 September.

Presumably this doesn't mean that the conclusion of each character's arc will be more or less instantaneous, happening simply in that one episode, but rather that, starting from the Season 2 premiere, these long-term character arcs that we've been following so closely will continue to unfurl.

Going by early to mid-Season »

Port Townsend Film Festival: Day Two witnesses the epic ‘Return of the River’

20 September 2014 11:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Day Two at the Port Townsend Film Festival heralded the arrival of legendary independent filmmaker, John Sayles.  Screening his Academy Award-nominated film, Lone Star, Sayles comes armed with many stories of horror and inspiration from the indie frontlines.  He notes that current “filmmaking has democratized incredibly,” becoming a land of opportunity for young (read: resource poor) filmmakers.

Several features made their debut, including, Noble, the real-life story of the slightly-crazy, Christina Noble.  Writer-director, Stephen Bradley, gives us a fictionalized account of Noble’s courageous quest to help the street children of Vietnam.  Also premiering was director, Yorgos Tsemberopoulos’ troubling meditation on vengeance, The Enemy Within.  Incorporating current social themes in Athens, Greece, this film asks that age-old cinematic question, “How far would you go to protect your home and family?”

 

Part history lesson, part Ecology 101, Return of the River is an uplifting documentary about how hope and perseverance can sometimes undo past wrongdoings. »

Noble Review

20 September 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

From a rough childhood growing up in Dublin, Christina Noble true calling in life came in 1989, when she travelled to Vietnam to care for the country's abused children, leading her to set up the Christina Noble Children's Foundation. To this day, she is a noted children's rights campaigner and charity worker. All this is explored in Noble, with Cramer Curtis, Sarah Greene, and, most prominently, Deidre O'Kane playing her at the key stages of her life. Switching back and forth between her childhood, which brings in the three pillars of patented Irish misery on film (a drunken father, poverty, and the nuns) but thankfully doesn't hammer you over the head with it (well, not too much), and her ongoing quest to help the poor and sick children of Vietnam, you cotton onto the movies narrative structure pretty early on, each flashback treated as almost an episode to punctuate or elaborate what has come before it. »

Glassland and Patrick's Day win big at Galway Film Fleadh

14 July 2014 2:59 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Another Galway Film Fleadh came and went over the weekend, and the festival's big award, Best Irish Film, was actually shared between two films: Gerard Barrett's Pilgrim Hill follow-up Glassland, a tale of a young man trying to save his mother from addiction, starring Jack Reynor and Will Poulter, and Terry McMahon's (Charlie Casanova) Patrick's Day, about a schizophrenic named Patrick who finds a connection with a depressed woman on St. Patrick's Day. Both films received a great reaction at the festival, and are well deserving of the award. Noble, biopic of Christina Noble (Deirdre O'Kane) whose charity work lead to the creation of an international organisation which helps oppressed and marginalised children around the world, came in second to the pair. The best documentary award was also shared between One Million Dubliners, an examination of the history of Glasnevin cemetery, and Blood Fruit, telling the story of »

Cannes: ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Cunningham Celebrates Seaworthy Style

20 May 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For their seafaring Cannes party celebrating masculine style, it would have been hard for online men’s fashion retailer Mr. Porter to find a better luncheon host than Davos Seaworth, aka Irish actor Liam Cunningham (above at the party with songwriter and socialite Denise Rich).

Cutting a fine figure in his Calvin Klein suit and sporting all of his fingers, the “Game of Thrones” star said that Cannes was a place of “business and pleasure” with the emphasis on the second because “it’s on my way to Monaco for the Grand Prix.”

On the business side, Cunningham is clearly busy beyond his “Thrones” duties, with three pictures, “Let Us Prey,” “Noble” and “Ladygrey” screening in the Cannes market. Cunningham’s “Thrones” tasks don’t end with the global TV hits shoots as he’s just launched the “Game of Thrones” interactive exhibition Toronto, hot on the heels of shows in New York City, »

‘Downton Abbey’ Cast and Producers Discuss Secrets, Love Affairs, Season 5

3 May 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Among the revelations about “Downton Abbey,” producer Gareth Neame shared that a Hollywood exec “who shall remain very nameless,” predicted that the show would not find any takers in the U.S. when he was shopping it.

Among their fans you can count Julia Roberts, who hugged showrunner Julian Fellowes at a party (“it’s the highlight of my life so far,” he joked); Mick Jagger, who told Laura Carmichael he loves the show, per Robert James-Collier (under-butler Thomas Barrow); and Jon Hamm, who thrilled Phyllis Logan (housekeeper Mrs. Hughes) by giving her a kiss.
