Producer Adi Shankar, the guy responsible for bootleg short films like the R-rated Power/Rangers and Venom: Truth in Journalism, has been hyping his upcoming animated television adaptation of the popular Nintendo video game Castlevania for a while now, and when the teaser trailer was released last month, fans finally got a taste of what he was talking about.
Now, in a new video, Shankar and actor Graham McTavish (whom you may recognize from his role as The Saint of Killers on AMC’s Preacher) have announced the major Castlevania cast members – including McTavish himself, who’s voicing Dracula, and The Hobbit trilogy star Richard Armitage, who’s voicing the vampire hunter Trevor Belmont.

After making November Criminals and an adaptation of Susannah Cahalan‘s memoir, Brain on Fire, back-to-back, actress Chloë Grace Moretz dropped out of all future projects. The actor wanted to slow down and reassess her choices. We’ve seen her in quite a few roles over the last few years, but right now she only has a handful of movies coming up, such as the Suspiria remake and writer-director Gerard Barrett‘s Brain on Fire, which co-stars Tyler Perry, Jenny Slate, Richard Armitage, and Carrie-Anne Moss.
Below, watch the Brain on Fire trailer.

Hannibal may be ending, but it isn’t over yet, with several episodes left to air in the third season. This is where the show starts to catch up to previous movie installments, too, with the character Francis Dolarhyde, aka the Red Dragon, showing up in the storyline. Richard Armitage takes over the role previously played by Tom Noonan (Manhunter) and Ralph Fiennes (Red Dragon) in feature film versions of the story.
We saw the Red Dragon in early promos for this season. Now there’s a great long Hannibal Red Dragon trailer that devotes several minutes to promoting the appearance of the character. Watch below. Read More »
Hannibal returns for a third season beginning on June 4, and with just a couple weeks left before the new season premiere we’ve got a long new Hannibal Season 3 promo that teases a bunch of new developments in the show. This promo features the major cast members explaining some of where the characters are now, and what’s different this year. “Season three is like a blank slate” says Caroline Dhavernas, who plays Alana Bloom.
There’s also the promise of the arrival of a familiar character, Francis Dolarhyde, played by Richard Armitage, who we see in this video.
Note: If you haven’t seen the second season of Hannibal and are planning to, what follows may feature a few spoilers. (But that’s been the case for all of this season’s promos so far.) Read More »
The third and final film in Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, is busting at the seams with characters. So it was inevitable that Warner Bros. would release an avalanche of posters for each and every one. They’ve finally finished.

They include Cate Blanchett as Galadriel, Orlando Bloom as Legolas, Luke Evans as Bard, Richard Armitage as Thorin, Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel and Lee Pace as Thranduil. And Tuesday, the final one was posted – a second one of Martin Freeman as Bilbo. See all of the Hobbit 3 character posters below. Read More »
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been craving a good tornado movie. Not something dumb with sharks or whatever, but something that at least tries to be realistic and scary. That craving is so bad, I get legitimately excited when Twister is on TV. Well, thank the clouds, New Line’s upcoming tornado film Into the Storm is almost here.
Directed by Steven Quale (Avatar), it stars Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead) in the story of what happens to a small town when one of the worst storms ever hits. It opens August 8 and you can get a great look at the scope of the carnage in this new trailer. Watch the latest Into the Storm trailer below. Read More »
