Netflix Sets August 1st Premiere for Fourth (and Final) Season of 'The Killing'

Netflix has announced that the final six episodes of "The Killing" will be available for streaming beginning on August 1st. Cancelled by AMC after just two seasons, Netflix negotiated the show's revival by teaming up with the cable network to bring it back for a third season in what Variety refers to as a "shared-window pact." Following the third season, AMC cancelled the show once again. This time, however, Netflix negotiated its own deal with Fox Television Studios for a fourth season. Veena Sud, who helmed "The Killing" when it first aired, has returned to the position of showrunner for its final season.

Starz Orders BLUNT TALK from Seth MacFarlane starring Patrick Stewart

Starz just ordered 20 episodes of awesome with the new Seth MacFarlane/Jonathan Ames show Blunt Talk, starring Sir Patrick Stewart. The show will premiere in 2015.

MacFarlane, of Family Guy and Ted fame, voiced his excitement for the new show, saying, “I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Jonathan Ames and Sir Patrick Stewart. Jonathan’s creative talent is formidable, and his writing style is wholly original, hilarious, and provocative. And of course, Patrick Stewart is one of the greatest actors alive today. His skill and versatility are unmatched, and he will excel as the star of his own show. Thank you, Starz, for allowing us to bring Walter Blunt to life!”

Blunt Talk is the story of Walter Blunt (Stewart), a British journalist determined to make his mark on American news via his own cable news talk show. Unfortunately for Blunt, network executives and incompetent show staffers, as well as his less than perfect relationship with his ex-wives and children, provide additional challenges.

Chris Albrecht, the CEO of Starz, also demonstrated confidence in Blunt Talk, saying, “In the character of Walter Blunt, Seth, Jonathan and Patrick have found the alchemy that makes a borderline alcoholic, mad-genius-Brit the man you want fighting in America’s corner. Seth and Jonathan have struck the right balance between biting wit and outright absurdity in building this world, and we cannot wait for Patrick to breathe life into Walter.”

This sounds absolutely fantastic. I know I’m always a fan of Sir Patrick when he does comedy (Extras or Robin Hood: Men In Tights, anybody?) and can’t wait to see him take on the role of a cable news “journalist,” especially with Ames as showrunner and MacFarlane overseeing the project.

SAILOR MOON Anime Is Reborn, Returns This Summer

After 22 years since its original run, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is back. Titled Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal by creator Naoko Takeuchi, the new animated series is not a remake of the original anime, but an adaptation that’s more true to the Sailor Moon manga (think Full Metal Alchemist and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood).

If that isn’t enough of a treat for you, Sailor Moon’s original voice actress, Kotono Mitsuishi, is reprising her iconic role, while the rest of the cast will be filled out by senshi-newcomers. Mercury will be played by Hisako Kanemoto, Mars by Rina Satou, Jupiter by Ami Koshimizu, and Venus by Sizuka Itou.

Get ready to be as ecstatic as Usagi gets when she sees food. The first episode will air simultaneously worldwide via NicoNicoDouga on Saturday, July 5 at 7 PM Japan time (the same time as the original series run). If you don’t want to do the math, that’s 6 AM EDT and 3 AM PDT July 5th (UTC 10:00). While subsequent episodes will air at the same time every first and third Saturdays of every month, it’s still unknown whether we’ll see the series on TV.

You can take a look at the designs of the inner senshi below. The character re-designs are more in line with the original manga, while still incorporating the familiar look of the ’90s animated series. Sadly, no images have surfaced of everyone’s favorite talking cat, Luna.

HANNIBAL Gives Us First Look at Michael Pitt’s Mason Verger — Finally!

We’ve previously only heard allusions and references to Mason Verger on NBC’s Hannibal, the only man to have — uh, spoiler, I guess? — survived an attack by Hannibal Lecter in the Thomas Harris cannibal-killer saga of movies and novels. But it looks like he’s about to make his big debut, as evidenced by these new photos.

We’d previously only been privy to a single black and white photo of Michael Pitt’s Verger, thanks to director David Slade. But now we have Verger in full, unadulterated context. And — oh snap! — he’s going to be playing right alongside Mads Mikkelsen’s Hannibal Lecter from the outset. Standing so brazenly next to his previously attempted victim, sister Margot Verger (Katharine Isabelle), proves that we’re in store for more of Bryan Fuller’s textbook tension-building and seriously audacious serial murderpeople. Something tells us Dr. Lecter is going to find it all very, very rude. We’re, for one, very much looking forward to Friday at 10 PM, when the episode in question “Naka-choko,” debuts on NBC.

H.R. Giger 1940 - 2014
Alien designer dies aged 74

Swiss artist H.R. Giger, who contributed design work to one of the most iconic creatures in cinema history for Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien, has died at the age of 74.

Giger is best known for his biomechanical horror work, inspired, he said, by night terrors. Born in Switzerland in 1940, his father initially encouraged him to become a pharmacist, worrying that art was a “breadless profession.” But Giger was dedicated to design, and moved to Zurich in 1962 to study architecture and industrial design, where he developed his technique. After a period working as an interior designer, he switched to art full time, working on small ink drawings before moving to oil paintings and then to airbrushed work which owes a debt to Lovecraft and Giger’s friendship with Salvador Dali. Early books of his paintings bear the Lovecraft influence out, named for the Necronomicon.

But it was Necronom IV that would lead to his most famous design – that, and a fateful meeting with Alien co-writer Dan O’Bannon, who prior to his work with Ridley Scott had been hired to help Alejandro Jodorowsky on his adaptation of Dune. While that never came to pass, O’Bannon was struck by Giger’s design plans for Dune, and recommended him to Scott for Alien. Despite Fox executives’ worries that his work would be too disturbing for audiences, Scott was sold and hired Carlo Rambaldi to bring Giger’s vision to life. The result scored the effects team an Oscar and is forever etched on to our minds.

In addition to that memorable collaboration, Giger has gone on to become one of the most influential artists in the world. He’s also directed several films, including Swiss Made, Tagtarum, and Giger’s Necronomicon. His fingerprints can be found on the likes of Species and Poltergeist II: The Other Side. He’s also contributed designs for a wealth of albums and other projects.

He died on Monday afternoon in hospital from injuries sustained in a fall. Our thoughts are with his wife, Carmen Maria Scheifele Giger, who runs the museum dedicated to his work.

Ben Miller to guest star in new series of Doctor Who

Ben Miller is set to guest star opposite Peter Capaldi when the new series of Doctor Who returns this autumn.

Commenting on his role, Ben Miller said: "As a committed Whovian I cannot believe my luck in joining the Twelfth Doctor for one of his inaugural adventures. My only worry is that they'll make me leave the set when I'm not filming."

Miller achieved fame as half of comedy duo Armstrong and Miller before success in dramas, including Primeval and more recently, as DI Richard Poole, the central character in the first two series of the BBC’s Death in Paradise.

Miller’s partner in comedy, Alexander Armstrong, appeared in Doctor Who’s 2011 Christmas Special, playing Reg Arwell, but it’s Miller’s first time on the show and he’ll be starring in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, added: “Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it's about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”

Other familiar faces confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series, which will tramsit later this year, include Tom Riley and Keeley Hawes.

It will be August.

Josh Hartnett And Eva Green To Star In Sam Mendes And John Logan's PENNY DREADFUL

Talking at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this week, Showtime revealed that Josh Hartnett and Eva Green will star in Penny Dreadful. Skyfall scribe John Logan is set to write all eight episodes of the series, with the director of that movie Sam Mendes set to executive produce. It was at one point thought he would direct the first episode, but other commitments (the next James Bond movie) mean that it will now be helmed by The Impossible's Juan Antonio Bayona. Set in Victorian England, the horror series will feature iconic horror characters such as Dracula, Van Helsing, Dorian Gray and Dr. Frankenstein. Hartnett is set to play Ethan Chandler, "a charming American who finds himself trapped in the darkest corners of Victorian London." Green meanwhile will play Vanessa Ives, "a seductive and formidable beauty full of secrets and danger." More details are expected to be revealed in the New Year.


http://www.imdb.com/news/ni57249250/?ref_=hm_nw_tv_t1

'Penny Dreadful' gets renewed for bigger season 2

Showtime is ordering a second season of Penny Dreadful. The Victorian-era horror thriller starring Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green has been picked up for another round. The premium network is committing to 10 more episodes from writer-producer John Logan, an increase on the first season’s 8-episode order.

“The goal here was to see if we could do a genre show a horror show but with all the sophistication and depth of a Showtime show and John Logan ended up being the person to do it,” Showtime president David Nevins tells EW. “It’s been well reviewed by mainstream critics, it’s giving us a Comic-Con-appeal show. It’s a whole new world as imagined by Logan.”

Nevins says the rest of the first season will involve a continued expansion of the world of the show and a deeper exploration of the current characters. “It just gets richer deeper and more complicated with the characters,” he says. “We’re only four episodes in and you’re only just getting a taste of what’s to come.” The first season will also provide closure to the current main story arc, involving the search for Sir Malcolm’s (Dalton’s) lost daughter.

Penny Dreadful has averaged 4.8 million viewers across all Showtime platforms since the show’s launch, with Penny ranking as the network’s most-watched new show ever On Demand. .”It’s done better on non-linear platforms like On Demand than any show we’ve ever had,” he says. The show will once again shoot on location in Dublin and is expected to debut season 2 next year.

Fantastic! But I do not have this freaking channel.

http://www.nerdist.com/2014/06/classic-doctor-who-to-air-on-retro-tv/

Classic DOCTOR WHO to Air on Retro TV

Fans of Doctor Who who haven’t gotten a chance to watch the Classic Series yet can quit spending many sleepless nights worrying about when and if you can. (I assume that’s what all of you are doing, right? Probably there’s sweating and gastrointestinal problems as well. Yeah, let’s go with that.) Late last week, syndicated network Retro TV announced that here in the U.S., almost 500 episodes of Classic Doctor Who will beginning running regularly, spanning all the way from William Hartnell’s first episode, “An Unearthly Child,” to the final Sylvester McCoy episode, part 3 of “Survival.” That’s 26 years’ worth of Time Lord action for you to enjoy, all on a daily basis beginning this summer.

Matthew Golden, the Vice President of Production for Luken Communication, the parent company for Retro Television as well as the broker of the deal, had this to say in the official statement: “We couldn’t be more excited to make legendary classic episodes of Doctor Who available nationwide. The series is an institution, and we’re proud to give fans new and old the opportunity to experience this groundbreaking series from the very beginning.”

Now, the deal is for “nearly 500″ episodes. In total, there are 694 episodes of the Classic Series. There are 97 currently missing from the archives following the recovery of nine last year, leaving 597 extant. But they aren’t going to get to show all of these. Fans took to the channel’s Facebook page to ask about this as well as if the ones screened will be the remastered DVD release versions or the VHS versions that are on Netflix currently. Their reply in the vast comment thread to both of these questions was thus:

“The short version is that we have licensed all episodes for which licenses were currently available: almost 500 episodes total. They will be remastered versions.” The episodes for which licenses were not currently available include those written by Terry Nation, which sadly includes all of the original Dalek stories that still exist as well as a few others.

They also mentioned cuts being made to the episodes to fit in commercial time for the 30 minute timeslot. Retro’s representative said it shouldn’t be much of a problem given the average length of an old Who episode was right around 23 minutes anyway. “We’re preserving everything possible, and not a single frame will be cut that isn’t absolutely necessary. Generally, the episodes should time out as-is for our purposes. This is for fans, by fans, and we’re a protective lot.”

These episodes will begin airing this summer, along with other newly-acquired cult favorites like Mystery Science Theater 3000 which will begin running in July. Check your local listings or go to Retro’s website to find what channel it is in your area.

Syfy Zombie Series Z Nation Casts Lost, Southland, Supernatural Alums

Syfy is getting in on the zombie craze, and as such has announced the cast of its upcoming action-horror series, Z Nation.

Harold Perrineau (Lost), Tom Everett Scott (Southland) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural) have joined the 13-episode series, which follows a team of everyday heroes three years after a zombie virus has devastated the country. Together, the group must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, as he is their only hope for a vaccine.
Perrineau will play Hammond, the leader of the group headed west. Scott portrays Garnett, Hammond’s second-in-command, while Qualls has been cast as Citizen Z, a computer hacker who joins the team and helps them navigate the zombie-infested country. UPDATE: A WBTV rep assures TVLine that Perrineau is very much a series regular on NBC’s Constantine, premiering Oct. 24.

Michael Welch (Twilight trilogy) and Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show) will also star in the series.

Currently in production in Spokane, Wash., Z Nation debuts in the fall.

Here’s The Official DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF GODS US Theatrical Trailer

And now for your Over 9000 news of the day: the Z fighters are reassembling for a new adventure on the big screen. The official US theatrical trailer for Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods emerged today by way of FUNimation, and it’s looking like sweet sweet redemption for anyone who may not have enjoyed Dragonball Evolution (yes, the live-action film combined the words dragon and ball). But enough about that, let’s look at the new hotness in the streets:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp60avoyT9k" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp60avoyT9k</a>

Looks like someone’s a little butt hurt over Frieza’s past ass whooping, forcing Goku to level up to a Super Saiyan God in order to protect humanity. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will premiere in 350 North American cinemas on August 5.

FX Orders New Denis Leary Show SEX&DRUGS&ROCK&ROLL to Series

While controversial at times in the world of stand-up, there’s no denying that when it comes to small screen entertainment, Denis Leary knows quality. The Job is great, Rescue Me was a game-changer, and Sirens is one of the funniest new comedies of the year. With that said, it’s been a while since last we saw Leary in a leading role on a television series – it’s kind of hard to do that when you’re fighting giant lizards on the streets of Manhattan. But it seems the dry spell’s over, since FX has announced today, just weeks before the 10 year anniversary of Rescue Me’s premiere, they’ve ordered a 10-episode first season of the actor’s new series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.

Created by Leary, the new series “is centered on ‘Johnny Rock’ (Leary), a middle-aged rock ‘n roller who desperately wanted to be rich and famous. So far, he’s 0 for 2. As the magnificently talented lead singer of New York’s legendary early 90′s band The Heathens, Johnny was on his way to the cover of Rolling Stone magazine… But Johnny had a problem with booze. And coke. And weed. And pills. And cough medicine. And oh yeah – he slept with best friend’s wife. And his bass player’s fiancé. The band broke up the same day their first and only record was released. 25 years later, Johnny’s trying to get the band back together. Why? Because as his soon-to-be-ex manager Ira Feinbaum tells him: ‘Johnny, you’re 50, broke and completely anonymous. In rock ‘n roll you know what that makes you? A bartender.’ 25 years later the sex might be harder to find, the drugs might be Luvox and Crestor and Cialis – but rock ‘n roll will never die. It just has a bigger prostate.”

Well, that’s a mouthful, which is a good thing since this is the same kind of character expectations we had for Rescue Me, and that turned out wonderfully. This series sounds like it’s right up Leary’s alley, and we can’t wait to see it.

Want to Watch OUTLANDER? The First Episode is Streaming for Free

In case you were still on the fence about Starz’s new time-hopping romantic drama, Outlander, the network has put the entire first episode up on YouTube for you to enjoy in advance of the series August 9 premiere. Or, if you don’t wanna do the whole YouTube thing, it’s available via the network’s app, on Starz.com and through On Demand services.

From Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ronald D. Moore (that guy is busy), Outlander is adapted from the novel by Diana Gabaldon. The series stars Catriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married combat nurse who is, thanks to a strange rock formation, pulled into 1743 Scotland. There, she’s forced to marry Jamie (Sam Heughan), a warrior Scotsman after running afoul of the sinister British officer Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies, Game of Thrones‘ Edmure Tully), who bears a striking resemblance to her husband Frank.

Hey, kids, why does Claire marry Jamie? So she won’t be kilt.

Ahem.

You’ve probably seen lead actress Balfe in films like Super 8 or Now You See Me, while co-star Heughan has largely made a name for himself in British film and television.

With the appearance of a man who looks like Frank, I wonder how much Outlander will rely on the idea of Claire meeting other people in 18th-century Scotland who resemble people from her life in 1945, Wizard of Oz-style. Also, will Moore seal the story up with season one, or can we expect more of Claire’s adventures if Outlander connects with its audience?

The 16-episode series launches this week on Starz, with the first 8 to air this summer, followed by another 8 in 2015.

http://www.nerdist.com/2014/08/anne-rices-vampire-chronicles-series-lands-at-universal/

Anne Rice’s VAMPIRE CHRONICLES Series Lands at Universal

Anne Rice’s seminal vampire Lestat basically sat out the whole recent vampire craze in media, which included True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and, of course, Twilight. But with all of those series either finished or winding down (although The Vampire Diaries likely has a few more years left it it), now is the time for Anne Rice’s immortals to come back and stake their space again in popular culture.

According to a report in Variety, the complete series of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles has landed at Universal, and will be developed as a movie series once again. Brian Grazer and Imagine Entertainment are set to produce, along with two names very familiar to Nerdist readers, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Before some of you get your feathers ruffled, know this: it doesn’t appear that the screenwriting duo behind The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are going to be writing the scripts for these, though. Instead, Anne Rice’s own son, novelist  Christopher Rice is going to be writing at least one of them, as his script for The Tale of the Body Thief (the fourth book in the series) is being used as a reboot of the whole series.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that the Vampire Lestat and his cohorts have been on the big screen. In 1994 Tom Cruise played Lestat in the successful adaptation of Rice’s first novel Interview with the Vampire, much to Anne Rice’s (and most fans’) initial skepticism, before winning everyone over by throwing himself completely into the part. Despite the success of the movie, back in the ’90s studios didn’t think of signing stars to multiple movies at once, and everyone became too pricey for a sequel.

In an effort to retain the rights, Warner Bros. crapped out a low budget sequel meant for the straight to video market allegedly based on the third book, The Queen of the Damned. The tragic and untimely death of star Aaliyah meant the movie got a theatrical release anyway in 2002. Unfortunately, the sequel was terrible and barely resembled the book, essentially killing the franchise for Warner Bros. and putting the whole series on ice for over a decade now. Although I’d much rather have a high-end cable television series based on The Vampire Chronicles, perhaps Universal will give the fans the version of these stories we’ve been waiting for.

GHOSTBUSTERS Sequel To Start Production In Early 2015

Could this actually be happening this time? Depite probably knowing better, Sony is moving forward with Ghostbusters III after all, and is eyeing an early 2015 start date for production. One thing that it won’t have on board this time is Ivan Reitman, who directed the original Ghostbusters thirty years ago as well as its sequel in 1989. Speaking with Deadline, Reitman said he just didn’t feel right continuing with the recent death of his friend, Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler. “When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I’d just finished directing Draft Day, which I’m really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters. I told them I thought I could help but let’s find a really good director and make it with him. So that’s what we’ve agreed will happen. I didn’t want all kinds of speculation about what happened with me, that is the real story.”

This is a good news/bad news kind of scenario. The good news is that Reitman seems to know and understand that proceeding on a straightforward Ghostbusters III without the late Harold Ramis or the reportedly uncooperative Bill Murray is really kind of pointless. It’s pretty much time for what’s left of the original players to all move on in anything but an advisory/cameo type capacity. The original Ghostbusters was lightning in a bottle, one of the best comedies ever made, and one they couldn’t even come close to topping when they went for round two a few years later. So what’s the good news? Well, this will be less a Ghostbusters III and more a Ghostbusters reboot, a brand extension, and a way to keep those Ghostbusters logo t-shirts selling at Target. Which means if it sucks, it won’t be as embarrassing as seeing geriatric Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson running around New York with heavy proton packs on their backs. And if by some miracle it’s good? You’ve saved a series where, as Dr. Venkman pointed out in the original movie, “The franchise rights alone will make us wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.”  That revival hasn’t happened yet, but you know Sony really wants it to.

So my nerd side is coming out here; I've been waiting for this for years!  ;-B

I haven't read the whole thread, have you mentioned the potential upcoming new star trek series with Mr. Word as the lead character? This should be good and in this timeline I think Data is still alive.
