The first Jessica Jones teaser released last week was fantastic — gorgeous, moody, mysterious, and even helpful, thanks to its release date reveal. But it didn’t actually show us much of the series itself. For that, we turn to the new batch of official images released today.
Krysten Ritter leads Netflix’s latest Marvel series as the titular character, whose short-lived stint as a superheroine has come to a tragic end. She tries to rebuild her life as a P.I. who specializes in cases involving superpowered people. The Jessica Jones images also reveal David Tennant as Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, and Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper. See them all after the jump. Read More »

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant will already enter the realm of comic books with a villainous role in the forthcoming Marvel and Netflix series AKA Jessica Jones, but that’s not the only comic book gig the actor has booked.
Tennat has just landed a role in the voice cast of Chew, the animated adaptation of the popular Image Comics title. His addition to the voice cast roster is bittersweet, however, because Tennant is taking a role that was originally meant to be filled by Robin Williams, before he passed away last August.

The UK series Broadchurch is at a strange nexus right now. The US remake of the first season, Gracepoint, is wrapping up tonight. David Tennant stars in that… just as he did in the UK original. Perfectly timed to that series conclusion is this first Broadchurch season 2 trailer, which shows that the second season takes place in the same town in which the events of season 1 went down, but there are still quite a few lingering problems and uncertainties. (Update: there are two trailers, in fact — one from the UK, and a US-specific one.)
Additionally, we’ve got the trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas Special, dubbed Last Christmas. Read More »

“I’ve had many faces, many lives,” says Matt Smith’s Doctor at the beginning of the new trailer for the Doctor Who anniversary special The Day of the Doctor, “but there’s one I’ve tried very hard to forget.” That one, this trailer suggests, is played by John Hurt, who appeared at the end of ‘Name of the Doctor,’ the final episode of the show’s most recent season.
This trailer for the show’s 50th anniversary special is huge, with a lot of effects and a scope that seems worthy of the Doctor’s birthday. In addition to Smith, we’ll see Jenna Coleman, David Tennant, Billie Piper and quite a bit of John Hurt. This is also among Smith’s final episodes in the role, as Peter Capaldi will take over as the twelfth Doctor after the 2013 Christmas Special.
Check out the trailer below. Read More »

It isn’t often we see an actor who appeared in one incarnation of a film or TV series starring in a high-profile remake in another country. But David Tennant is doing exactly that for Broadchurch. He starred in the UK TV series as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy, who escapes a bit of professional scandal to work in the seaside town of Broadchurch, where he’s soon part of an investigation into the murder of an eleven year-old boy.
The series, which was a tremendous success in its first season in the UK, is being remade in the US for broadcast on Fox. Tennant will play the Americanized version of the same character, with an American accent being part of what sets this version of the character apart from the original. Read More »
