The New Trailer for Far From the Madding Crowd

Far From the Madding Crowd

Fox Searchlight Pictures has revealed the new trailer for the adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s romantic literary classic Far From the Madding Crowd, starring Academy Award-nominee Carey Mulligan (An Education, Drive).

The film tells the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

Far From the Madding Crowd is directed by Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt, Dear Wendy) with a screenplay adaptation by David Nicholls (One Day, Starter for 10), and will be released in theaters on May 1.

Hellboy’s Doug Jones Joins Arrow as Villain Deathbolt

jones and deathbolt

IGN has learned that former Hellboy star Doug Jones has joined the cast of “Arrow” in the role of Jake Simmons, AKA Deathbolt, where he will debut in the 19th episode of the show’s third season.

Created by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway in All-Star Squadron #21 (May, 1983), Simmons had the ability to control lightning and electricity and was dubbed “the living battery.” In “Arrow,” his character will instead wield the power of controlling plasma energy. This makes him the first meta-human to make his debut on “Arrow” as opposed to the more super power-friendly “The Flash.”

Jones is perhaps most well known for playing Abe Sapien in both “Hellboy” films, but he has a long history of appearing in comic book based media with roles in Batman Returns, Tank Girl, Mystery Men, Men in Black II, and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

“Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. EST on The CW.

Details on the Rome Shoot for Spectre

Spectre1

Our friends at Italian site Bad Taste have tipped us off to some juicy details of the Rome shoot for Spectre – the 24th entry in EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s James Bond franchise – in which Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci will burn rubber and production dollars.

UPDATE: The production has provided a look at Craig and Bellucci on location, which you can check out in the gallery below!

The two stars had a meeting today with Ignazio Marino, the Mayor of Rome, to talk details of the action in Italy’s capital city, which will begin lensing March 8. It will apparently involve a spectacular car chase in Via Nomentana, from viale Gorizia to Porta Pia. Filming will commence from 9pm to 6am, with traffic blocked during the night shoot for safety reasons. Residents will only be able to come home at pre-arranged time.

There will be another chase on the Lungotevere that will finish with James Bond’s car falling in the river, with Craig’s Agent 007 to be rescued by a helicopter. Additional chase footage will be shot in via Barberini, via Quattro Fontane and via Nazionale, as well as other locations such as Borgo Pio, the Milvian Bridge and all the streets and alleys around Piazza Navona.

These driving scenes will likely be easier on Craig’s knee, which sustained injury during an accident earlier this month while filming Pinewood studios in Buckinghamshire, UK. Spectre is rumored to be the most expensive entry in the Bond franchise yet, so producers are no doubt looking to keep their star in tip-top shape.

In the movie, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.

SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), as Bond fans know, is a fictional global terrorist organization featured in Ian Fleming’s novels, as well as the films and video games based on those novels. The organization was led by the villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, although the cast is definitely playing it coy about whether or not Blofeld will actually appear in the new film.

Directed by the Academy Award-winning Sam Mendes (Skyfall), Spectre stars Daniel Craig, Ben Wishaw, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, David Bautista, Léa Seydoux, Andrew Scott and Rory Kinnear. Written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, the movie hits theaters on November 6, 2015.

Amazon Studios Renews Mozart in the Jungle and Greenlights Three New Series

mozart-in-the-jungle-1

Conductor Rodrigo DeSousa, will take the stage once again in the hit Amazon Original Series ‘Mozart in the Jungle.’ Amazon today announced it has greenlit a second season that will premiere early next year exclusively on Prime Instant Video.

Based on the critically-acclaimed memoir “Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs & Classical Music” by Blair Tindall, “Mozart in the Jungle’ draws back the curtain at the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication and creativity collide with mind games, politicking and survival instincts. Returning to the series are stars Gael Garcia Bernal (Rosewater), Saffron Burrows (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Lola Kirke (Gone Girl), and Malcolm McDowell (“The Mentalist”).

The second season of “Mozart in the Jungle’ will be Executive Produced by Roman Coppola (Moonrise Kingdom), Jason Schwartzman (The Darjeeling Limited), and Paul Weitz (About a Boy). Additional details will be announced in the coming months.

“The first season of Mozart in the Jungle was a big hit with our customers and I’m thrilled that we’re able to produce a second season,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “Roman, Jason, and Paul brought viewers into this rarely-seen world of the symphony. I know fans of the series will be in for treat when the second season premieres early next year.”

“Jason, Paul and I are delighted to work on a second season of Mozart in the Jungle,” said Roman Coppola. “There are so many interesting stories we want to tell and we’re looking forward to shooting another season with our wonderful cast and team of collaborators. We’re grateful to all the folks at Amazon who believe in this project and support us to portray the world of our symphony in what we hope will be an interesting, fun and imaginative season of television. We can’t wait for the curtain to rise on season two.”

Amazon today also announced it has greenlit five new Amazon Original Series, including “The Man in the High Castle,” which is based on the Philip K. Dick alternative history novel; an hour-long dark comedy “Mad Dogs,” docu-series “The New Yorker Presents,” along with kids shows “Just Add Magic” and “The Stinky & Dirty Show.”

The new Amazon Original Series come from an acclaimed creative roster including Frank Spotnitz (“The X-Files”), Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), Cris Cole (“The Good Times Are Killing Me”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”), Alex Gibney (The Armstrong Lie), Joe Nussbaum (George Lucas in Love), and Kate & Jim McMullan (“I’m Dirty!”). These new shows will premiere exclusively to Prime members in the US, UK and Germany later this year and in 2016.

As part of its unique development process, Amazon gives customers an opportunity to provide feedback on which pilots they want turned into series that are then available to Prime members. During pilot season, any Amazon customer in the US, UK, and Germany can watch, rate and comment on the pilots. At the end of pilot season, that feedback helps determine the shows that become an Amazon Original Series.

To date, customers have helped Amazon greenlight 13 series including the multi-Golden Globe-winning show “Transparent,” which will return for a second season later this year. 

“During the latest pilot season, Amazon customers made ‘The Man in the High Castle’ our most watched pilot ever,” said Roy Price, Vice President of Amazon Studios. “These new series, including our first docu-series, are some of our most ambitious to date and I’m looking forward to their premieres in the future.”

Based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning 1962 alternative history, “The Man in the High Castle” considers the question of what would have happened if the Allied Powers had lost World War II. Almost 20 years after that loss, the United States and much of the world has now been split between Japan and Germany, the major hegemonic states. But the tension between these two powers is mounting, and this stress is playing out in the western U.S. Through a collection of characters in various states of posing (spies, sellers of falsified goods, others with secret identities), “The Man in the High Castle” provides an intriguing tale about life and history as it relates to authentic and manufactured reality. The hour-long dramatic pilot starred Alexa Davalos as Juliana Crain, Luke Kleintank as Joe Blake, Rupert Evans as Frank Frink, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Tagomi, Joel De La Fuente as Inspector Kido, Rufus Sewell as John Smith and DJ Qualls as Ed McCarthy. The pilot was directed by David Semel and written by Frank Spotnitz, both serving as Executive Producers. Also executive producing are Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker with co-executive producer Jordan Sheehan of Scott Free Productions, and Executive Producers Stewart Mackinnon and Christian Baute of Headline Pictures. In addition, Isa Dick Hackett will executive produce and Kalen Egan will co-executive produce on behalf of Electric Shepherd. Christopher Tricarico is also Executive Producer. 

“Mad Dogs” is an hour-long dark comedy drama created by Cris Cole and Executive Produced by Cole, Shawn Ryan and Marney Hochman, Andy Harries, Suzanne Mackie and Charles McDougall. Based on the hit UK series, “Mad Dogs” follows the reunion of a group of underachieving forty-something friends—a mixture of single, married and recently divorced, all seemingly at crossroads in their lives. Celebrating the early retirement of an old friend at his gorgeous Belizean villa, grudges begin to emerge and secrets explode as their trip becomes a labyrinthine nightmare of lies, deception and murder. “Mad Dogs” is a twisted tale of friendship put to the ultimate test. As the chain of events unfolds, cracks within the group widen before the friends realize the only people they can trust are each other, the last people they should be relying on! The pilot starred Steve Zahn as Cobi, Billy Zane as Milo, Romany Malco as Gus, Michael Imperioli as Lex and Ben Chaplin as Joel. Mad Dogs was directed by McDougall and is being co-produced with Sony Pictures Television.

America’s most award-winning magazine, which marks its 90th anniversary this year, comes to life in half-hour docu-series pilot “The New Yorker Presents.” The pilot episode featured Tony-Award winner Alan Cumming and actor Brett Gelman in a short film based on a story by Simon Rich and directed by Emmy Award-winning director Troy Miller; a poem by Matthew Dickman; a documentary by Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme about biologist Tyrone Hayes based on a Rachel Aviv article; and an interview with famous performance artist, Marina Abramovi?, conducted by The New Yorker writer Ariel Levy. Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney is Executive Producer, joined by Dave Snyder and Dawn Ostroff. The pilot was co-produced by Condé Nast Entertainment and Jigsaw Productions. Future episodes will include new segments that come from noted filmmakers, star talent and New Yorker writers.

The New Promo for Bates Motel Season 3

Bates Motel Season 3

A&E Networks has debuted the new promo for the upcoming third season of their hit series, “Bates Motel.” Check it out below!

Aimed to be filled with family strife, murder and mystery, the third season of “Bates Motel” is lead by Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates and Freddie Highmore as her son, Norman. This season focuses on the evolution of the Bates family and dives head first into Norman’s waning ability to stay in denial about what’s happening to him and the lengths he will go to gain control of his fragile psyche. The dramatic events of last season leaves Norma reluctantly more aware of Norman’s mental fragility and is fearful of what he is capable of.

After a blissful summer of closeness with his mother, living within the safe confines of home and the Bates Motel, Norman’s fears about what really happened with Blaire Watson resurface and Norma questions what really happened. Forced to look at the truths about Norman for the first time, their deeply intricate relationship continues to evolve. Norma finds herself turning to the other man in her life, Norman’s half-brother, Dylan (Max Thieriot) and begins to rely on him in ways that she never expected. This relationship inevitably triggers jealousy in Norman and a new kind of love triangle between Norma and her two sons erupts. Estranged brother and uncle, Caleb (Kenny Johnson) returns to haunt the family throughout the season challenging the family bond even further. Pressures of the outside world take a hold of the family when newcomers Kevin Rahm (“Mad Men,” “Desperate Housewives”), Tracy Spiradakos (“Revolution”) and Ryan Hurst (“Sons of Anarchy”) arrive at White Pine Bay. After a summer of living at the Bates Motel, Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) and Norma have grown closer but there will always have that troubling question mark surrounding Norman. Something doesn’t feel right, but spite of his instincts, Romero finds himself continually drawn back to the Bates family — and to Norma. Emma (Olivia Cooke) also determined to find out what is happening to Norman becomes more emboldened, fearless, goes after the things she wants. Familiar face, Bradley (Nicola Peltz) returns to surprise the family and digs up old memories.

“Bates Motel” season three premieres Monday, March 9 at 9:00 ET/PT on A&E.

Jaimie Alexander Will Star in NBC Pilot Blindspot

file_113655_0_ladysifshield

Having already aided The Mighty Thor several times, actress Jaimie Alexander is most definitely due to step into the spotlight on her own, which Deadline reports she will do as star of the NBC pilot “Blindspot.”

In the Memento/Bourne Identity-esque story, Alexander will play a beautiful Jane Doe who finds herself at the center of an investigation after climbing out of a duffel bag in the middle of Times Square in New York City with her memory wiped and no clue as to what the extensive tattoos on her body mean. FBI agents will use the clues tattooed to reveal a larger conspiracy while helping her discover the truth about her identity.

The pilot for “Blindspot” was written by Martin Gero (“Stargate: Atlantis”) and will be directed by Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies) for Warner Bros. TV and Greg Berlanti Productions.

While Alexander is expected to reprise her popular Marvel role as Lady Sif in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, she will also return as the character on a March 10 episode of ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in which Sif wakes up on Earth with… no memory, not unlike “Blindspot”! The actress will also be seen opposite Johnny Depp in the thriller London Fields and will be stalked by Wes Bentley in Broken Vows.
