The BBC possibly isn’t finished with John le Carre‘s The Night Manager. Director Susanne Bier turned le Carre’s thriller into a riveting six-part miniseries, which American audiences saw on AMC, but she may return to the world of arms dealing with the second season of the hit drama. Bier confirmed scripts are being written for a follow-up season right now.

We first heard about Holmes and Watson back in 2008. At the time, it was going to star Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, but the comedy fell to the wayside, and we instead got two Sherlock Holmes movies from Guy Ritchie. The musical was revived last summer with Ferrell still onboard but with Cohen out. Etan Cohen‘s (Get Hard) film now has John C. Reilly playing Watson, making this an exciting reunion for the Step-Brothers and Talladega Nights stars. They’re in good company, too, as Hugh Laurie (Chance) and Ralph Fiennes (A Bigger Splash) have signed on to star in the film.
Below, learn more about Holmes and Watson.

Even before Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters this weekend, we knew that the future of what is now a five-film franchise would have a focus on the villainous plans of Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp. This includes his conflict with Albus Dumbledore, who we know eventually stops him in 1945 thanks to the Harry Potter books.
As such, casting is underway to find an actor other than Michael Gambon to play Albus Dumbledore since the character is roughly 60 years younger in the Fantastic Beasts timeline than he is in the Harry Potter franchise. There haven’t been any names mentioned as being in talks for the role yet, so now that audiences are flocking to see Fantastic Beasts this weekend, we thought we’d propose some potential names for who should play young Albus Dumbledore in the future sequels. Find out who made our list after the jump. Read More »

Earlier this year, we saw Hugh Laurie play one hell of a menacing villain in The Night Manager. The actor played his villainous part with relish, but in his next series, he’s taking on a more well-intentioned character. Laurie stars in Chance, a new drama/thriller from Hulu that’s executive produced by Lenny Abrahamson (Room), who also directed a few episodes.
Below, watch the Chance trailer.

Some of the best stories being told today are happening on television. It’s a new Golden Age for the flickering box, at least on cable networks, and the AMC has another promising project on the way to the United States thanks to the BBC.
The Night Manager is a miniseries adaptation of John Le Carré‘s novel of the same name, and Tom Hiddleston takes the lead as a former soldier working as a night manager at a hotel who is recruited by British Intelligence to complete an undercover mission to help take out an arms dealer. However, it may be even more risky than originally thought as The Night Manager trailer teases some potential double-crossing from Hugh Laurie. Watch it below! Read More »

In the past few years, few movies have been as secretive as Tomorrowland. Directed by Brad Bird and co-written by Damon Lindelof, almost everything about the sci-fi Disney adventure has been mysterious. Is Disneyland part of it? What’s the 1952 box? Who is The Optimist? How does The World’s Fair fit in? Do Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison play a role? Speculation ran rampant.
The first teaser trailer gave fans a bit of an idea of the story and now, a second and likely final Tomorrowland trailer gives us even more. It’s the story of a young girl (Britt Robertson) who meets a scientist (George Clooney) to travel to a secret world called Tomorrowland. The films opens May 22, and you can see the latest Tomorrowland trailer below. Read More »

The more things change, eh? Season 3 of Veep ended with a major step forward for Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), as the president’s resignation put her in the Oval Office. And the Season 4 trailer begins with her reveling in her new position of power — she’s like “a real-life Mariah Carey,” in the immortal words of Mike (Matt Walsh).
But it’s not long before she finds herself drowning in the same old bullshit: incompetent staff members, petty rivalries, broken equipment, and her own delusions of grandeur. Watch the Veep Season 4 trailer after the jump. Read More »

The public’s understanding of Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland has been like its very own theme park ride. First we though it was literally about the Tomorrowland section of Disneyland. Then we heard it had something to do with a 1952 mystery box. Next a more authentic plot description was revealed, and now all of those possibilities are beginning to blend.
Bird is currently in Vancouver, BC shooting the December 2014 release and set photos from the production have begun to leak. Among them, Hugh Laurie as a mysterious doctor and, most intriguing, images of Walt Disney’s “It’s A Small World” ride and costumed characters from Alice in Wonderland and the Three Little Pigs. We explore how that all fits in below. Read More »
