First glimpse of a Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom dinosaur

There have been rumours that the first trailer for J.A.Bayona’s dino-romp sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, would be attached to The Last Jedi. Until life finds a way and that becomes a reality, we’ll have to settle for this brief glimpse of what appears to be a baby raptor upstaging the returning Chris Pratt, which has been tweeted by the film’s producer, Colin Trevorrow

It’s not exactly a rippling footprint, with the handheld camera technique appearing to signal that this is simply part of the slow promotional tease from Universal, but we’ll look upon it as a butterfly flapping its wings in Beijing, a sign of bigger things to come.

Doctor Who: Mark Gatiss Believes Female Doctor Was Long Overdue; Calls Out Industry Sexism

It was the announcement that almost brought the Internet to a standstill: Jodie Whittaker, star of Black Mirror and ITV drama Broadchurch, will succeed Peter Capaldi and become the first female Doctor in time for season 11. And we couldn’t be more excited.

Primed for her big debut in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, “Twice Upon a Time,” the BBC has already rolled out our first sneak peek of Whittaker as the all-powerful Time Lord, and series stalwart Mark Gatiss believes a female Doctor was long overdue.

Gatiss, who is known for roles in Game of Thrones, Sherlock and, more recently, the Guy Fawkes miniseries Gunpowder, is a writer on Doctor Who and a long-time cohort of Steven Moffat, who is prepped and ready to depart the sci-fi show alongside Capaldi. He recently sat down with the Financial Times (via Digital Spy) to discuss Doctor Who‘s impending changeover, and

Sean Baker Cut Up Paul Thomas Anderson Long Takes To See if a Doc-Style Steadicam Would Work on ‘The Florida Project’

Sean Baker Cut Up Paul Thomas Anderson Long Takes To See if a Doc-Style Steadicam Would Work on ‘The Florida Project’
Sean Baker is a filmmaker who puts a premium on making his films feel as authentic as possible. For example, sometimes he will use a handheld camera to follow his characters — who are often played by first-time performers — to give a scene a sense of documentary realism. After “Tangerine” — Baker’s iPhone-shot indie breakout — he started to wonder if image stabilization advances in smartphone cameras was changing what audiences thought “real” footage looked like.

“Audiences see homemade raw footage, but with a stabilizer on,” said Baker when he was guest on IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast. “So everybody is shooting their Youtube and Instagram videos and they are all very smooth — so we’re changing the way audiences think about how cameras are held and if shots are stable or not.” This led Baker to consider if he could employ a documentary-style steadicam effectively to his next film, “The Florida Project.

Women and People of Color Directed More TV Than Ever This Season, and It Didn’t Cost White Men Any Work

Women and People of Color Directed More TV Than Ever This Season, and It Didn’t Cost White Men Any Work
There are plenty of upsides to the increase in television being made recently, and here’s a big one: More episodes means more opportunities for women and people of color behind the camera.

According to a study released today by the Director’s Guild of America, over the course of the 2016-2017 season there were 4,482 episodes of television produced under DGA contracts in the 2016-2017 season. This represents a 10 percent increase over last year, but more importantly that volume led to an increase in minority hiring for these shows.

The number of episodes directed by minorities in the 2016-2017 season was a 28 percent increase over last year, leaping from 783 episodes to 1,006 episodes. In addition, 205 individual minority directors found themselves working this year, a 46 percent increase over 2015-2016.

8 ways The Twilight Zone influenced modern TV and film

Louisa Mellor Nov 12, 2017

The Twilight Zone casts a long shadow over today’s film and TV. We salute the legacy left by Rod Serling’s seminal series…

“Damn near immortal” is how Stephen King described The Twilight Zone in his 1981 study of creepy fiction Danse Macabre, and who could argue with that. Like any decent horror monster, Rod Serling’s 1960s anthology series keeps coming back from the grave. Only last week it was announced that CBS is planning to resurrect its award-winning show once again. The new series will be the latest of several revivals over the decades, including an upcoming stage production set to enjoy its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre this December.

Afm: Alice Eve Talks About Starring in and Producing Her Brother’s Film ‘Bees Make Honey’

Afm: Alice Eve Talks About Starring in and Producing Her Brother’s Film ‘Bees Make Honey’
Bees Make Honey,” the stylish debut from writer/director Jack Eve, is a true family affair. His sister Alice Eve (“Star Trek: Into Darkness,” “Black Mirror”) headlines the cast, while their father, Trevor Eve (“Troy”), is featured in a supporting role. Pic mixes 1930s period decor with modern music, flashy photography and energetic editing in a dark comedy. Alice Eve spoke with Variety about her work on “Bees Make Honey.”

How did “Bees Make Honey” originate?

It was born out of my brother’s wild imagination and his love for movies in general. He knows me very well, and knew I’d be well suited to the part. There are bits that are certainly inspired by films we’ve loved, but this is his creation.

What was it like working with your brother considering that it was his feature debut, and you’re one of the producers?

My focus was on giving exactly the performance that he

The Orville Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘Majority Rule’

Martin Carr reviews the seventh episode of The Orville

Written by Seth MacFarlane this episode has more in common with Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror than anything else. Referencing ‘Nosedive’ from season three The Orville passes comment on our smartphone driven way of life, without lessening the impact with levity. Taking a cue from the feature film documentary Catfish MacFarlane grabs elements of these influences and expands on their initial premise.

Using a thinly plotted rescue mission as their jumping off point, most of ‘Majority Rule’ focuses on the consequences of a society shaped, ruled and led without any form of segregated government. Answering questions on religion, shopping habits and the ability of people to operate in a construct completely decided by public opinion. MacFarlane is quick to illustrate the double-edged sword of uploaded videos for entertainment, where their purpose is for something far more sinister. This is a satirist

Jeff Goldblum provides details on Dr. Ian Malcolm’s return in Jurassic World 2

Actor Jeff Goldblum has offered up some details regarding his return in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Goldblum, long a fan-favourite actor thanks to his peculiar mannerisms and interesting characters choices, will be returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm – last seen in The Lost World: Jurassic Park II – for the sequel to the immensely successful Jurassic World.

The series return has been a big success and has made Fallen Kingdom one of the most anticipated blockbusters on the Hollywood calendar. But just what can fans expect from Ian Malcolm’s return? Goldblum offers up some details to Radio Times.

Ian Malcolm, yes, might be back in this one, and he might have something to say about the current confluence of circumstances around the use and misuse of technology. With some wry irony, deep wise passionate conviction, and he might put on a nice dark bit of clothing here and there … and a tint of glass maybe.

The End Of The F***ing World review: dark, funny & fearless

Louisa Mellor Oct 24, 2017

Channel 4’s new 8-part comic book adaptation is an all-round winner. Great writing, top performances, well-paced and stylish…

Contains plot references to episode 1, but no spoilers.

See related The quiet brilliance of Mackenzie Crook's Detectorists Mackenzie Crook interview: Game Of Thrones, Detectorists, Pirates 5

Between its punk title and an opening few minutes that reference child self-mutilation, animal killing, psychopathy and murder, The End Of The F***ing World starts off by weeding out the weak. Meet teenagers James and Alyssa, it says, he’s a monster and she’s angry. You won’t like them.

You will though, you’ll even come to love them. Just as the spikiest people can be the most vulnerable, this show’s aggressive nihilism conceals a tender and romantic centre. Its eight episodes are essentially the story of two young people damaged by abandonment who find temporary solace in each other.

Bryan Cranston interview: Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams

Rob Leane Oct 23, 2017

Bryan Cranston chats to us about his involvement in Channel 4 and Amazon’s Phillip K. Dick anthology series, Electric Dreams...

Amazon and Channel 4’s Philip K. Dick anthology series, Electric Dreams, adapts ten of the iconic author’s short stories into hour-long TV dramas.

The show has the mighty Bryan Cranston involved as an actor and an executive producer. This marks the second Amazon production that Cranston has pulled double duty on, following on from Sneaky Pete.

Along with a bunch of other journalists, Den Of Geek took part in a roundtable interview with Cranston on the set of Electric Dreams, on an offensively hot day back in June. Here’s how it went...

I think what we all want to know is the genesis of how Electric Dreams came together.

It did come together. I bumped into Michael Dinner, who was a director that I knew,

‘The Alienist’ Trailer: TNT’s 19th Century Serial Killer Show Looks Like a Gorgeous ‘CSI: Gilded Age’

‘The Alienist’ Trailer: TNT’s 19th Century Serial Killer Show Looks Like a Gorgeous ‘CSI: Gilded Age’
After a weekend when “Mindhunter” was the buzz of TV fandom, TNT is throwing its hat into the serial killer drama ring with “The Alienist.” The network has released their latest look at their newest series (well, as long as you’re not counting the promos during the weekend’s baseball playoff games) and it seems as sumptuous as it is unsettling.

Daniel Bruhl, Dakota Fanning, and Luke Evans star in the 1890s-set New York story about the fledgling work of criminal psychology in the big city. Bruhl stars as Laszlo Kreizler, a psychologist, who teams with a local newspaper employee (Evans) and a police secretary (Fanning) who begin to conduct some covert operations to catch the perpetrator behind a series of grisly killings. (And remember, the important question isn’t “what” or “who,” but “Why.”)
