Fear The Walking Dead: lots of production images land online

13 hours ago

We've got loads of stills from the Fear The Walking Dead zombie spin-off show here, including Robert Kirkman's impressive beard...

Fear The Walking Dead, as was confirmed recently, will be an La-set series set (to begin with) during Rick from The Walking Dead's series-preluding coma. There won't be a central villain, or an explanation for the virus. 

One thing we haven't seen much of - except for one short behind-the-scenes clip - is action from the set of the show, which has now been shooting for a couple of weeks. 

Today, though, a whole load of production stills landed online. Firstly, we saw this image - thanks to Variety - of The 100's Alycia Debnam-Carey in her role as Alicia (yep, her character name is very similar to her real name)...

This character has been described as the 'high-flying daughter' to the highest-billed female character, Madison (Kim »

Supergirl: new image, Berlanti and Benoist on casting

13 hours ago

"If we hadn’t found her, I wouldn’t have wanted to make it," says Greg Berlanti. Also, a new still of Melissa Benoist's Supergirl

Just a brief Supergirl update here. Variety included Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist in their list of 10 Actors To Watch for the fall TV season, and, as such, a couple of new quotes that may be of interest have come to light.

Supergirl (and Arrow, and The Flash, and Legends Of Tomorrow) executive producer Greg Berlanti said this of Benoist’s casting: "If we hadn’t found her, I wouldn’t have wanted to make it."

Melissa Benoist had this to say about her disbelief: "there are moments when I step back and look at the bigger picture and I’m on the set with fire and explosions and I’m in the suit, and I'll have to do a double-take."

Cassius & Clay: Community and Archer alumni announce new animated comedy

14 hours ago

Archer's Adam Reed is teaming up with Megan Ganz of Community for Cassius & Clay, a new post-apocalyptic buddy comedy…

“Post-apocalyptic buddy comedy” is a phrase we don’t get to use very often. Until now, that is, seeing as a new animated show along those lines is currently in the works.

The show is called Cassius & Clay, with the reasons behind the Muhammad Ali reference therein currently proving elusive.

What we do know, however, is that Adam Reed (creator of animated spy comedy Archer) is teaming up with Megan Ganz (Modern Family and Community writer, including the much-loved ‘bottle episode’ Cooperative Calligraphy [she's on set with the cast in the picture above]) for this new project.

They’ve been given a pilot order by FX, and the network’s approval will be needed before a full season could come into being.

Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) will voice Ordwood Cassius, “a hard-drinking, quick-thinking, fast-talking bullshitter who has more debts than sense. »

Introducing the new horror game, Perception

14 hours ago

From one of the designers behind BioShock comes a unique-looking indie horror game, Perception...

Even though the horror genre's been thriving in the realm of videogames of late, it's important that designers keep innovating - and keep finding new ways to enthral and disturb us.

Perception certainly looks both enthralling and disturbing, with its typical mansion setting spiced up with an unusual premise: you play a young blind woman who interprets the world around her through a kind of echo location, where sound helps to illuminate the objects within her immediate locus.

This means that you're spending much of the game enshrouded in almost complete darkness, the way ahead only illuminated by either the sounds around you or gentle taps of your the staff you carry in your hand. You'll want to be careful how you use that staff, too, because making sounds could attract unwanted attention...

Perception is a new game from Bill Gardner, »

You can buy a Star Wars: Battle Pod arcade for your home

15 hours ago

You can fight the Empire in the comfort of your own home with the Star Wars: Battle Pod arcade machine. Best start saving now...

As arcade experiences went in the 80s, you had to go some way to beat Atari's Star Wars arcade machine from 1983. The assault on the Death Star unfolded before you in glorious 3D vector graphics, lines shimmering, Tie Fighters roaring overhead, R2-D2 bleeping in your ears.

You had to be there at the time, really, and those glowing vector graphics probably don't have quite the same allure as they once did. But Bandai Namco's Star Wars Battle Pod arcade machine seems to evoke the same joyful wonder as Atari's 80s classic, with a hectic, deafening rush through some of the franchise's most famous locations.

The good news is, you can now have one of these machines in your very own home. The bad news: they're extremely expensive. »

Exclusive: Jason Statham on Crank 3 and Fast & Furious 8

15 hours ago

The Statham sounds like he's on board for the next Fast & Furious film. Plus, plans are ongoing to get Crank 3 made...

So, yesterday, we might just have been in the same room as the mighty Statham himself, and had the chance to question him about one or two of his upcoming projects. He was in town to talk about Paul Feig's incoming comedy Spy, and we'll have the full interview for you next week. But here's what he told us about two upcoming sequels, Crank 3 and Fast & Furious 8.

There's still not much in the way of obvious progress on Crank 3 though, sadly. However, The Statham told us that "Crank 3 is something I've always wanted to do". Promisingly, he added that "The directors want to do it, we're trying to figure things out".

Far more definite is his involvement in Fast & Furious 8. His future filming schedule is set »

New trailer for Kholat, featuring Sean Bean

15 hours ago

Horror exploration game Kholat gets a release trailer, featuring some moody voice-over work from Mr Sean Bean...

You know how it's become something of a geek recurring joke that Sean Bean frequently dies in his film and TV appearances? Well, he's also dead in the forthcoming Kholat - and no, that's not a spoiler.

As Bean's narration in the first trailer reveals, his character is already dead before the game begins. Something mysterious has happened in the icy wastes of the Ural Mountains, and it's up to you to find out exactly what it was.

Bean will provide the narration in the finished game, too, which is loosely based on a true event - the Dyatlov Pass incident, where nine trekkers vanished under mysterious circumstances in 1959. It's a story explored in pop culture before, including a so-so horror film directed by Rennie Harlin in 2013.

Kholat looks like a far more moody, »

Transformers cinematic universe: more writers, origins pic

16 hours ago

Transformers One looks set to take us to Cybertron, as more people sign up for the Transformers cinematic universe...

Paramount continues to add personnel to its planned Transformers cinematic universe, as it's recruited another pair of writers to join the assorted projects it has in the works.

The studio has opted for a writers' room approach to its next swathe of Transformers films, with Akiva Goldsman heading it up. Also on board are The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Jeff Pinkner (Lost).

Now added to the fold are Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who spent the best part of six months doing production rewrites on Marvel's Ant-Man movie.

The immediate priority for this hive of writers is to have a screenplay for Transformers 5 in place once director Michael Bay is done with his latest movie, 13 Hours. And »

Marvel's Doctor Strange adding Tilda Swinton to cast

16 hours ago

Benedict Cumberbatch is already on board to star as Doctor Strange - and it looks as if Tilda Swinton is joining him in the cast.

With the cast for Captain America: Civil War now finally locked and in place, with the movie before the cameras, the casting spotlight switches to the next Marvel cinematic universe project after that. And the film in question is Doctor Strange, which Scott Derrickson is directing for a November 2016 release.

We already know that Benedict Cumberbatch is taking on the lead role in the movie, but word now reaches us that Tilda Swinton is in negotiations to co-star in the film.

Swinton is set to play the Ancient One, a Tibetan mystic, and a mentor to the character of Doctor Strange. The role in the comics is male, and Marvel Studios was originally on the hunt for a man to play the part. Yet the studio has changed direction, »

10 names are in the frame for Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Here's the shortlist...

Director David Yates returns to the world of Harry Potter later this year as he begins production on spin-off series Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Set around 70 years before the antics of Harry Potter and his chums, the film will be the first in a new trilogy, that's being directly penned for the screen by J K Rowling.

Eddie Redmayne is believed to be in pole position for the pivotal role of Newt Scamander. But across The Wrap and Variety, it's being reported that the shortlist for other roles in the movie is in.

So, for the part of Tina, the names on that list are reportedly Saoirse Ronan, Dakota Fanning, Lili Simmons (True Detective) and Alison Sudol (Transparent). Here are the quartet, clumsily put together by someone fumbling »

Wonder Woman: Chris Pine joining the movie

16 hours ago

Once he's done with the next Star Trek film, Chris Pine looks set to be heading for the DC cinematic universe...

Well, he's been Jack Ryan, and he's part of the Star Trek ensemble. And now it seems as though Chris Pine is joining a comic book movie as well.

Pine is reportedly in negotiations to join Patty Jenkins' movie of Wonder Woman, which is set to star Gal Gadot in the title role. Pine is being sought to play Steve Trevor, her romantic interest and co-star in the movie.

Scott Eastwood, adds Variety, was reportedly given the chance to test for the role as well, but he chose to take on a part in David Ayer's Suicide Squad film instead. Several other actors were reportedly in contention, but Warner Bros became keen to land a higher profile name. Chris Pine fitted the bill.

Simon Pegg interview: Man Up, Tintin 2, rom coms, directing

27 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT

Simon Pegg chats to us about rom coms, Man Up, writing, Tintin 2, visiting Andy Serkis on The Jungle Book set, directing, and more...

Before he heads off to make the next Star Trek film, Simon Pegg is back in UK cinemas this weekend for the really rather good romantic comedy, Man Up. He co-stars with Lake Bell in the movie, and ahead of its release, he spared us some time to chat about the film, and what he's up to next...

It's an interesting sign of the times that BBC Films, which started out making movies that couldn't be made really, back with Truly Madly Deeply....

Another South Bank movie!

True. Back then, BBC Films was making niche films that were struggling to get made anywhere else. And here, with Man Up, a rom com seems to have become one of those niche films.

Absolutely, yeah. You make a very good point. »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, fantasy and childishness

27 May 2015 6:19 AM, PDT

The BBC’s Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell isn't a silly, childish, Harry Potter rip-off. So why do people keep saying it is?

As described in a 1974 essay by author Ursula K. Le Guin, Americans are afraid of it, the French haven’t had it for centuries, Germans have a good deal of it, and the English “have it, and love it, and do it better than anyone else”.

That thing? A literary tradition of adult fantasy. Our national bookshelf (with thanks to Ireland, Scotland and Wales for the lend of Swift, Stoker, Lewis, Stevenson and more) is packed with the stuff, from epics to folklore, the Gothic and the satirists to the Romantics, Victorian moralists and Edwardian golden agers, to Tolkien and the twentieth-century conjurers, all the way up to today’s imaginative tale-spinners.

Such an august library should speak for itself. With all that precedence, you’d think the »

Penny Dreadful season 2 episode 4 review: Evil Spirits In Heavenly Places

27 May 2015 6:10 AM, PDT

Penny Dreadful's second season continues to go from strength to strength, using lightness to accent the darkness...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Evil Spirits In Heavenly Places

Picking up after last week's flashback episode, Evil Spirits In Heavenly Places spins the narrative back to the show's present day as Vanessa finishes recounting the story of the Cut-Wife to the rest of the gang and Lyle continues translating the artefacts of the mad monk. The translation reveals it to be an autobiography of a demon who fell with Lucifer, echoing the warning of the Cut-Wife. The nightcomers attempt to take Chandler out of the picture, identifying him as Vanessa's protector whilst the investigation into the Mariner's Inn Massacre continues without his knowledge. Meanwhile, Frankenstein continues in his efforts to humanise Lily, buying clothes more befitting of her location.

Last week's episode was decidedly more macabre and sombre in tone, allowing for »

Supernatural season 10 episode 23 review: Brother's Keeper

27 May 2015 2:43 AM, PDT

The Supernatural season 10 finale is a mixed bag containing strong performances and weaker narrative...

This review contains spoilers.

10.23 Brother's Keeper

Supernatural ends its tenth season by wrapping up the Mark of Cain narrative. As Dean succumbs more and more to the Mark's power, Sam gets increasingly desperate to track his brother down and set Rowena on performing the spell that will get rid of the First Curse. Dean gets desperate and calls on an old ally of the Winchesters in the form of Death, anticipating that it will be his own demise that will rid the world of the dangers of the Mark. Of course, this being Supernatural, nothing is ever that easy and Death reveals that losing the Mark will unleash the Darkness upon the world, the evil that came before Creation. As Rowena prepares to take on the spell, the brothers Winchester attempt to sort their own solution »

Orphan Black season 3 episode 6 review: Certain Agony Of The Battlefield

27 May 2015 12:51 AM, PDT

In this week's episode, Orphan Black finally says goodbye to a character who long since served their purpose on the show...

This review contains spoilers.

3.6 Certain Agony Of The Battlefield

Sometimes in television, there are characters who outstay their welcome. I don't mean a character who was once liked but no longer is, but rather a character who once served a very good purpose and, having served it, stuck around without really having much to do. They may still be loved by the audience, but it leaves the writers scrambling to find something for them to do to justify their continued existence on the show. For a long time, I've felt like Paul fell into this category. Certainly he was once vital to the plot, serving important purposes in the narrative. But it's felt like for the last year, the writers haven't really known what to do with him; he »

Churchill’s Secret: Michael Gambon to play Winston Churchill for ITV drama

27 May 2015 12:44 AM, PDT

The legendary actor Michael Gambon will play the legendary politician Winston Churchill in ITV’s Churchill’s Secret…

We don’t always cover historical television shows on this site, but here’s a story that piqued our interest, which may do the same for you – Michael Gambon is set to portray Sir Winston Churchill.

Cinema’s second Dumbledore will take on the role of Britain’s iconic wartime Prime Minister for a new one-off ITV drama dubbed Churchill’s Secret. The thespian is on a bit of a historical bent at the moment, then, as he’s also set to appear in The Hollow Crown’s version of Henry VI Part 1 over on the BBC.

The synopsis for Churchill’s secret looks like this:

"Set during the summer months of 1953 Churchill—now Prime Minister for the second time and in his late 70’s—suffers a life-threatening stroke, which is kept secret from the world. »

The X-Files: “I started crying reading the first page,” says David Duchovny

27 May 2015 12:26 AM, PDT

David Duchovny has been talking about scripts, and it sounds like The X-Files event series revival could be an emotional one...

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are both returning for The X-Files event series next year. Mitch Pileggi, who played their boss Walter Skinner, is reprising his role too. All going to plan, the first new episode will premiere on Sunday the 24th of January 2016 on Fox.

What will the episodes be about? Well, we don’t know yet, but we’re promised that "the world has only gotten that much stranger,” and that it’s “a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Okay, well what do the cast think of the scripts in vague spoiler-free terms? A-ha! Well, we have an answer for you on that. David Duchovny said this to Entertainment Weekly:

“I got the first script this morning. I just read it about an hour ago »

League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie reboot coming

26 May 2015 11:05 PM, PDT

Alan Moore's The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen is getting a second shot at the big screen...

Based on the work of Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, it would be fair to say that the first attempt to bring The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen to the big screen was not a successful one.

The 2003 film is most infamous for being Sean Connery's last screen role, with the actor calling it quits afterwards, such was his unhappiness with the production. He wasn't alone, either. Director Stephen Norrington hasn't helmed a film since, and has gone back to special and visual effects work. Neither had a great time.

Oh, and it's be fair to say that Alan Moore and Hollywood haven't really got on since.

20th Century Fox is hoping a second attempt will be more successful, and it's appointed John Davis to produce, and help bring Lxg back to the screen. »

Point Break remake: first trailer and poster

26 May 2015 11:01 PM, PDT

The first trailer for the remake of Point Break, starring Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey...

In all the time we've been running Den Of Geek, it would be fair to say that Point Break has been comfortably one of the least popular remake stories we've ever run (well, that and Naked Gun). It would be fair to say that the new take on the Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze-headlined original has not gone down well.

However, you never know, the film itself might turn out to be a treat. We've got here, at the very least, a first glimpse of it to see how it's shaping up.

The new Point Break stars Luke Bracey, Edgar Ramirez, Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo, with Ericson Core directing this time around. KAthryn Bigelow, of course, helmed the first movie.

The official synopsis? "A young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Luke Bracey »
