Why are Rosamund Pike and Kate Winslet stuck in the CGI Moominvalley?

The Moomins are back, moving in that way they do, with their big eyes and animal nudity – plus an all-star cast!

Always got slightly disconcerted by the Moomins. Can’t quite drill down as to why without the necessary therapy; their curious blob-like shapes? The idea of a family of hippopotami walking upright on two legs? Their near-pathological lack of a mouth? The way they always moved just two beats too slowly on the screen? That one who looked like a baby witch? All the ghosts? But they always made me nervous as a boy and, if we’re being honest, still do now. The original Moomins series more or less split the children who watched it into two adult camps: those who are still filled with a deep abyss of dread (me), or those who still buy Moomin-themed cups and Moomin-themed plates and Moomin plushies, even though they

MipTV: How the Rise of Premium Scripted Increases Talent Competition

  • Variety
As the demand for premium TV drama amps up the competition for top talent, independent producers have been battling with deep-pocketed global groups for access to the best actors, writers and directors. But it is often the strength of the creative relationships that matters more than commercial affiliations.

One example is Fable Pictures’ “Saint Mazie,” which creative directors Faye Ward and Hannah Farrell are developing alongside Helena Bonham Carter. Ward got to know the actress, who will star in and be a producer on the limited series, on the films “Toast” and “Suffragette” while Ward was at Ruby Films. Fable is working with two other actors in a similar vein, developing characters they’d like to portray and stories they’d love to tell.

“To have such passion entrenched in a story or a character from early on is hugely beneficial,” Farrell says.

'It is a religion': how the world went mad for Moomins

Kate Winslet and Rosamund Pike are among the starry lineup in a new TV adaptation of the Moomins. Why do Tove Jansson’s hippo creatures have such enduring appeal?

It is -15C and snowy outside but unusually relaxed and welcoming inside a grand building on the corner of Senate Square in Helsinki where a preview is taking place of the much-anticipated TV animation Moominvalley. The most expensive of its kind in the history of Finnish television, the series is the creation of Oscar-winning director Steve Box (Wallace and Gromit) and executive producer Marika Makaroff, of the company behind The Bridge (spoiler: it is much sunnier in Moominvalley).

That evening no one is left in any doubt as to the central place of Tove Jansson’s Moomins in Finnish culture as the vice president, clutching two Moomin mugs, tells the audience they are Finland’s “crown jewels”. “Moomins is a religion,

SundanceTV Reveals Unusual Launch Plans for Short-Form Series ‘State of the Union’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
SundanceTV has lined up two unique ways to launch “State of the Union,” its 10-minute series starring Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd.

Given its short-form nature, the 10-episode relationship series posed a unique scheduling challenge for the channel. But here’s how the show will unroll: Starting Monday, May 6, and running through Friday, May 17, SundanceTV will air one 10-minute episode at 10 p.m. each weeknight.

Because of symmetry of running a 10-minute show at 10 p.m. for 10 days, SundanceTV is dubbing the showcase “10@10.”

Meanwhile, for viewers who would prefer to binge the show faster, Sundance Now, SundanceTV.com and the SundanceTV app will upload two 10-minute episodes each day at 5 p.m. between May 6 and May 10. The network is dubbing it a “Digital Happy Hour,” and is aiming at a commuter audience.

First Look at Doom: Annihilation Threatens Hell on Earth

This Fall, Universal's straight-to-video arm Universal 1440 Entertainment has an all-new Doom movie headed our way. And today we have word that the film has been officially titled Doom: Annihilation. Not only that, but we have three first-look stills for you guys to check out. You can give them a look-see below. Another bit of info to keep in mind when it comes to Doom: Annihilation is that the movie is not - I repeat not - a direct sequel to the 2005 version like we were led to believe. But that's all good as that version was pretty much a waste of movie-making magic. The part that goes first-person-shooter was pretty cool though. Anyhow, no, this new movie isn't a sequel to that Doom movie which starred Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike, and Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson.

How the hell did Olivia Colman beat Glenn Close for the Best Actress Oscar? Here are 7 explanations
One of the few surprises at the 91st Academy Awards came in one of the categories we least expected. While we all thought this would finally be the Oscar coronation for Glenn Close (“The Wife”) on her seventh nomination, Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”) swiped that Best Actress crown to everyone’s shock (even Lady Gaga mouthed “Oh my god.”) So how did Colman pull off this upset when it certainly felt like it was Close’s time after wins at the Golden Globes (and that speech!), the Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors Guild Awards? Here are seven explanations.
