True Blood season 7 episode 6 review: Karma

2 hours ago

Karma is a soapy, fun and, in places, delicious episode of True Blood. Here's Emma's review...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

7.6 Karma

As the consequences of the H-Vamp attack continue to ripple around Bon Temps, this week’s episode dealt mostly with what happens when you genetically engineer a virus aimed at killing super-strong, super-powerful beings and then run away to Los Angeles, leaving the world to suffer. Calling it Karma is all very well, but there is that pesky insinuation that you deserve your fate – with what Karma had in store for us, perhaps it would have been better titled Oh, the Irony. Yes, not only is Sookie on her way to killing Bill, but her special blood has at least one more surprise in store for Vampire-kind. And as if that wasn’t irony enough for you, go and see Sarah Newlin. She’s full of it...

Doctor Who: Peter Capaldi on "no flirting", costume and more

8 hours ago

Peter Capaldi has chatted to The Sunday Times about Doctor Who series 8, not flirting with Clara, the show's "gravity" and more...

News

Behind The Sunday Times' paywall sits a delicious interview with Peter Capaldi from this weekend's magazine supplement, one or two tidbits from which we're able to bring you courtesy of Doctor Who TV.

The Capaldi quote that's been whizzing around social networks and websites since publication (why should we be Denny Different?) is the news that Capaldi insisted on a strict no-flirting rule with Companion Clara in series eight: "There’ll be no flirting, that’s for sure. It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with. It’s quite a fun relationship, but no. I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments.’ I think there was a bit of tension with that at first, but I was absolutely adamant."

Capaldi goes on to describe the »

Falling Skies season 4 episode 6 review: Door Number Three

8 hours ago

This week's Falling Skies is fun, well-crafted, and smoother than it has been. Here's Ron's review of Door Number Three...

Review

This review contains spoilers.

4.6 Door Number Three

It's interesting to see Falling Skies leaning increasingly on its history to bring back tidbits from the past and make them relevant to the current events. In the case of Lexi Mason-Glass (Glass-Mason?), it's wise of the show and writer Melissa Glenn to bring back elements from all sides of the Mason family to tie things in the fourth season to those in the first three. After all, there have been a lot of suspicious elements throughout Falling Skies, most of which have to do with various Mason entanglements with the Espheni or their agents.

Tom spent a significant time on board the space craft of the Espheni, and even spent time with them during his time in the concentration camp. »

Evil Dead TV series coming, Bruce Campbell to feature

8 hours ago

Bruce Campbell will be back as Ash it seems in a television take on Evil Dead, from Sam Raimi...

News

Over the weekend, Sam Raimi announced that a television series based on the Evil Dead series of movies was currently in development. He's working with his brother, Ivan, on transferring Evil Dead to the small screen.

There weren't too many details on top of that, save for a pertinent one: it looks as if Bruce Campbell's Ash is going to be a major part of the show. For Campbell himself replied to a question about that in this Twitter exchange...

“@DeaditeBill: Only if @GroovyBruce is the Star of this new tv series will I accept.

That's the plan. pic.twitter.com/m7EkBFpl1b

Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) July 27, 2014

So: we might not have got Army Of Darkness 2, but there's a sporting chance we're going to get a lot more Ash, »

First look at The Thing from Fantastic Four reboot

8 hours ago

The reference model for the new The Thing in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four movie has landed online...

News

Josh Trank and his team are currently hard at work on the big screen reboot of the Fantastic Four, which is set to arrive in cinemas next June. Thus far though, there's been very little from the production itself, once the dust had settled over the fan-splitting casting for the movie.

However, this is worth a look: it's a photo of The Thing from the new Fantastic Four movie. More to the point, it's the reference model for the character that's being used on the shoot.

Jamie Bell is playing The Thing/Ben Grimm in the new movie, incidentally.

The image came to light on the Twitter feed of Justified Films, although it's now been deleted. It has appeared pretty much everywhere else, though...

Quentin Tarantino confirms he's making The Hateful Eight

8 hours ago

It's finally been confirmed by the man himself: Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is definitely going ahead...

News

Putting to bed any remaining doubts, Quentin Tarantino confirmed at Comic-Con after the weekend that he is indeed going to press ahead and make his new western, The Hateful Eight.

The project had been thrown into doubt by Tarantino himself earlier in the year, when he put it on the backburner after the screenplay to the movie leaked out. A subsequently dropped lawsuit against a website followed.

But the signs that Tarantino was having a change of heart have been there for a little while, not least when he gathered an impressive cast together for a live reading of the script. One of those cast members, Kurt Russell, has since said that he's expecting to shoot the film early in 2015.

And now Tarantino, in answer to a question from a fan at Comic-Con, »

Argo's Chris Terrio to pen Justice League

9 hours ago

After working on Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, it looks as if Chris Terrio is Warner Bros' choice to pen Justice League.

News

Warner Bros may not have officially announced Justice League at Comic-Con over the weekend, but it's still a live DC project, that Zack Snyder will be tackling once he's done with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

One detail about the film did come to light over the weekend, though, and that's the identity of the person who's set to write it. Chris Terrio, who snagged an Oscar for his Argo screenplay and who also worked on the current Batman V Superman project, has apparently been hired to tackle a Justice League screenplay. Inevitably, there aren't too many more details than that at the moment. But his appointment is apparently down to the quality of the work he did on the Dawn Of Justice script.

The trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

9 hours ago

The penultimate The Hunger Games film, Mockingjay Part 1, now has a trailer. Jennifer Lawrence stars once again...

Trailer

And this is where is all goes haywire. Those who have read The Hunger Games books won't need us to tell them that the third book, Mockingjay, is a bit of a different beast to the first two, We remain intrigued to see how it's going to be adapted into a 12A movie at all, yet alone into a pair of them.

Yet this is a movie franchise that's put not a great deal wrong in the two films to date, and thus this November's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is high on our want-to-watch list.

Here's the trailer for the movie, to give you a flavour of what's in store. Jennifer Lawrence stars, and Francis Lawrence directs again. The movie is out in November.
