That headstone is a lie, as we all know, but the opening episode of Sherlock, which kicks off the show’s third season, is all about catching the rest of the world up to the fact that Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) did not die at the end of the second season. A new teaser for the season opener kicks off with a shot of that headstone, then gives us a bit of mopey Watson (Martin Freeman) before starting to get the word out that this new season won’t be centered around a ghost.

We’ve known that the first episode of the third season of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, would deal with the fact that no one around Sherlock yet knows that he survived the end of season two. That’s enough to give us a general idea of what’s in store from at least some of the premiere when it airs on Sunday, January 19th on PBS, and a first teaser trailer has given us a good peek, too.
Now BBCOne has released a new image that has a bit of Edward Hopper’s ‘Nighthawks’ in it. Check out that pic below. Read More »
Just what happened to Sherlock Holmes between the roof and the ground, and why is he being all shady about life after Moriarty? We’ll start to find out on January 19 when the BBC show Sherlock returns for its third season on PBS. The show will run back to back with Downton Abbey. While the US premiere date is being revealed before the UK date, Sherlock‘s home territory will likely see the show first.
Want all three episode titles, so that you can work on which original Sherlock Holmes stories might be the source for each? They’re after the break. Read More »

One of the hottest actors in the industry could be headed toward one of the coldest places on the planet. Benedict Cumberbatch is being eyed to star as George Mallory in Doug Liman‘s Everest, with Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess also in the mix.
If you’re confused because you thought Jason Clarke had already replaced Christian Bale in that movie, you’re thinking of the other Everest, by Baltasar Kormakur. That one has suffered a few setbacks but is now hoping to shoot this fall, with Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, and Jake Gyllenhaal in addition to Clarke. Get the latest on both movies after the jump.

The teaser trailer for Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug showed a great tease of the appearance of the dragon Smaug. This time you get to hear him speak, in rumbling tones provided by Benedict Cumberbatch. This trailer also shows a few of the ways Jackson has extended the basic story of The Hobbit to fill three movies. Most notably there’s a pre-Fellowship romance for Legolas (patterned seemingly after Aragorn’s own difficult love for an elf) and the threat of Sauron’s return. Read More »

Hit the jump for more details on her potential casting — as well as the latest update to the Cumberbatch story.
