J.R.R. Tolkien biopic Tolkien set for release in May

Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that it is set to release Tolkien, the upcoming biopic of The Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Dark Phoenix) on May 3rd 2019.

The film explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.

Tolkien is directed by Dome Karukoski from a script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford, and sees Hoult joined in the cast by Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Anthony Boyle, Patrick Gibson, Tom Glynn-Carney, Craig Roberts, Laura Donnelly, Genevieve O’Reilly, Pam Ferris and Derek Jacobi.

J.R.R. Tolkien Biopic Starring Nicholas Hoult Is Coming This Summer
The J.R.R. Tolkien biopic is finally happening, as Fox Searchlight has announced the cast and release date for their look at the life of the beloved author behind The Lord of the Rings. We first heard about this biopic back in 2013, but there have been few updates on the project since and it wasn't clear if the movie had perhaps been shelved. Apparently not, as the studio has put all of the key players in place and they're ready to unleash the tale of Tolkien on audiences around the world this summer.

Fox is set to release the J.R.R. Tolkien movie in theaters on May 10, which puts it right at the start of the very busy summer movie season. That indicates a certain level of confidence in the final product, and it also shows that they feel the movie has commercial appeal. Previous comparisons, in terms of tone,

Here’s How To Survive An Entire Year Without Any New Doctor Who

2019 started with a big treat for Doctor Who fans as New Year’s Day brought us “Resolution,” the show’s annual winter special that featured Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor facing off against a Dalek for the first time. Unfortunately, the year definitely peaked early for Whovians, as there won’t be another episode of the show until 2020 – “very early 2020,” to be exact.

So. what are Who fans to do for the next 12 months of their lives? Well, thankfully, there’s still a lot of other Doctor Who content coming this year to keep us occupied and help keep the spirit of the series alive, even if the Tardis won’t materialize in this dimension for a while yet.

First of all, the obvious place to start is to just go back to the beginning and rewatch some classic Doctor Who. If that’s tickled your fancy, then you’re in luck.

Les Misérables episode one recap – it's the big muscle, magnificent trouser show!

How do you rewrite a story everyone knows? With Dominic West as the Incredible Hulk, Derek Jacobi as a pruning bishop – and the Tinder profile from hell

Gosford Park

At least twenty fine actors and stars make Robert Altman’s period piece about a party in a big English country house into a gala occasion. The show is also a fascinating entree into a classed world of masters and servants. The drama of manners could also be described as a mystery who-dunnit. Either way, we’re floored by excellent work from a stellar cast.

Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected TV Series to Be Rebooted

Joseph Baxter Nov 20, 2018

Tales of the Unexpected, Roald Dahl’s fantastical story collection and TV anthology series, is about to be rebooted by The Ink Factory.

The media-spanning works of legendary author Roald Dahl have had their share of reboot treatments, with multiple movies currently on studio slates, notably new iterations Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and The Witches. However, U.K. television fans with rose-colored 1980s memories of the Dahl-inspired fantasy anthology series, Tales of the Unexpected, should be especially elated to know that a reboot series is in development.

Surging upstart studio The Ink Factory – having achieved international small screen success with joint BBC/AMC TV miniseries adapting selections of John le Carré spy literature in 2016's The Night Manager and the currently-running The Little Drummer Girl – are set to shift gears to Roald Dahl with a TV adaptation of Tales of the Unexpected, reports Deadline.

The Ink Factory Rebooting Roald Dahl's
Exclusive: The Ink Factory has successfully mined the library of John le Carré with "The Night Manager" and "The Little Drummer Girl" and it seems that the company is now looking do the same with acclaimed British author Roald Dahl.

The series, which was originally produced by Anglia Television for British commercial broadcaster ITV between 1979 and 1988, told a different story each week with Dahl’s trademark sinister and comedic undertones with a twist at the end.

Ridley Scott dives into development on a Gladiator sequel

  • HeyUGuys
18 years after Ridley Scott delivered Russell Crowe in ‘Gladiator’, the filmmaker has finally started the development of the film’s sequel.

12 Strong’ scribe, Peter Craig has come on board to write a script for the follow-up. Rumours have it that the plot of the movie will follow the now grown up Lucius, son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen) and nephew of Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix). This would make some sense as Crowe’s Maximus was slain at the end of the film, making it impossible for him to feature. However, never rule out the impossible.

The film which was released in 2000 was Set in Roman times, the story of a once-powerful general forced to become a common gladiator, Maximus (Crowe). The emperor’s son, Phoenix’s Commodus, is enraged when he is passed over as heir in favour of his father’s favourite general. He kills his father and arranges the

Charlton Heston movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Ben-Hur,’ ‘The Ten Commandments’

Charlton Heston movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Ben-Hur,’ ‘The Ten Commandments’
Charlton Heston would’ve celebrated his 95th birthday on October 4, 2018. Born in 1923, the actor became a household name with leading roles in action adventures and biblical epics. But his credits extended past those two well-worn genres. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 12 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

After serving in the United States Army Air Force during WWII, Heston made his professional movie acting debut with the film noir “Dark City” (1950). His big breakthrough came just two years later with Cecil B. DeMille‘s big top soap opera “The Greatest Show on Earth” (1952), in which he played the circus manager. Though an audience favorite in its time, the film often ranks among the all-time worst Oscar winners for Best Picture.

Heston later reunited with DeMille to play the Old Testament prophet Moses in “The Ten Commandments” (1956), which brought him a Golden Globe nomination.

Kim Cattrall, Derek Jacobi & Kate Nash Among Cast For Altitude-BBC-Amazon Tie-Up ‘Horrible Histories’

Things go from bad to worse when Atti is captured by Orla, a feisty teenage Celt desperate to prove herself as a warrior.

Dominic Brigstocke, director of the TV version of the series, will make his feature directorial debut. Script comes from Jessica Swale together with Giles Pilbrow and Caroline Norris.
