‘Crossbones’ News, Screencaptures Episodes 3-6 & Stills

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Episode 7 of ‘Crossbones‘ will air later tonight as scheduled. NBC announced yesterday that they will be airing episodes 8 & 9 next Saturday, August 2 from 8pm – instead of on August 1 and 8 – thus effectively cancelling the series after bad ratings. The article talks about these episodes being the final two episodes. I’m a bit confused because I thought they filmed 10 episodes. Well, the series will come to DVD soon, on September 2, and I think those 386 minutes of runtime listed on Amazon.com would suggest that there will be 10 episodes on the DVD. Also Amazon lists deleted scenes as special features. Don’t forget to pre-order!

In other news, we are all caught up with screencaptures of Claire Foy as Kate Balfour in episodes 3 to 6. And there are 3 new stills, 2 from tonight’s episode. Enjoy!

And Anna has updated the biography page and added more information to our ‘Crossbones’ section.

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

By David Bol

Damian Lewis will play Henry VIII in a BBC adaptation of Wolf Hall – due to be filmed in Sherborne this summer.

The Homeland and Band of Brothers star will play the lead role in the series, based on the first of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize-winning novels, with part of the feature being shot at Sherborne School.

The six-part mini-series, to be broadcast next year on BBC 2, also includes Mark Gatiss and Jonathan Pryce in the cast.

Pryce will play Cromwell’s early mentor and protector, Cardinal Wolsey, while Gatiss will play Stephen Gardiner, Secretary to the King. Read the rest of this entry »

BBC Adaption Of ‘Wolf Hall’: What We Know So Far

Posted by Anna with No Comments

by Sophie Miskiw

The BBC adaption of Hilary Mantel’s historical novel ‘Wolf Hall’ seems like it’s finally making some headway.

It may be nearly two years since BBC Two first announced that it would be adapting Hilary Mantel’s Man Booker Prize historical novel Wolf Hall, but details about the series are only just beginning to emerge. The series was announced in August 2012 and at the time director Peter Kosminsky, who was chosen to bring the book to life, said, “It is an intensely political piece. It is about the politics of despotism, and how you function around an absolute ruler…When I saw Peter Straughan’s script, only a first draft, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. It was the best draft I had ever seen.” Read the rest of this entry »

Wolf whistles for the racy Tudors

Posted by Anna with No Comments

By Baz Bamigboye

Charity Wakefield is brushing up on her court etiquette as she prepares to portray the other Boleyn sister in the television adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s novels, about how Henry VIII’s urges caused bloodshed and upheaval in Tudor England.

The actress will play Mary Boleyn, described as a ‘vivacious blonde’, who was wooed and bedded by the king before he took up with her younger, ruthlessly ambitious sibling Anne, who will be played by Claire Foy in the six-part drama based on Mantel’s Man Booker-prize winning historical books Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies, to be broadcast next year.

Charity joins a growing ensemble led by Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell and Damian Lewis as the much-married monarch.

The Boleyn women were the key part of their father’s plan to secure political influence.

The great Cardinal Wolsey, in a waspish aside to Cromwell, snorted that Mary’s ‘been passed around most of the French court’. Jonathan Pryce will be wearing the Cardinal’s red brocade and I can hear him now, having much sport with such a line.

Sherlock star Mark Gatiss will play Stephen Gardiner, Henry’s top civil servant. Anton Lesser will play Thomas More, and Joanne Whalley will play Catherine of Aragon, Henry’s first wife, set aside in favour of Anne Boleyn.

Even though Mary went from king’s concubine to coaching her sister in the art of keeping Henry happy in bed, she at least kept her head.

Charity, who is an accomplished photographer and budding film-maker, joins the Wolf Hall company from the set of the film Day Of The Flowers. She also starred as Marianne Dashwood in the BBC production of Sense And Sensibility and worked with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper on the film Serena. Read the rest of this entry »

NBC Set To Launch ‘Crossbones’ This Summer

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Thursday, March 27th, 2014 at 3:45pm PST – by TJ Dietsch

NBC will unleash a whole nation of ruthless scalawags this summer, when Crossbones debuts at 10:00 PM on May 30. The pirate series not only stars John Malkovich, but also boasts a first episode directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hannibal).

Crossbones was first announced back in 2012 when NBC revealed they had signed off on an adaptation Colin Woodar’s book The Republic of Pirates. Luther creator Neil Cross developed the series and has signed on as an executive producer. In addition to Malkovich, the cast also includes Richard Coyle, Tracy Ifeachor, David Hoflin, Yasmine Al Massri, Chris Perfetti and Claire Foy.

Here’s the official logline:

It’s 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence where the diabolical pirate Blackbeard (John Malkovich) reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. Part shantytown and part marauder’s paradise, New Providence is a mounting threat to international commerce. To gain control of this fearsome society, assassin Tom Lowe is sent to the buccaneers’ haven to take down the brilliant and charismatic Blackbeard. But the closer Lowe gets, the more he finds that his quest is not so simple. Lowe can’t help but admire the political ideals of Blackbeard, whose thirst for knowledge knows no bounds, and no law. But Lowe is not the only danger to Blackbeard’s rule. He is a man with many rivals and one great weakness – a passionately driven woman whom he cannot deny.

Vampire Academy Movie Review

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

(…)

The adult characters are almost all total lost causes. Joely Richardson’s minimal screen time is completely insignificant. She could and should have been written out of the film to give more time to Olga Kurylenko’s Headmistress Kirova. This is easily the most one-dimensional role in the film. Kirova’s actions have no motivation whatsoever beyond being the all-business principal of sorts and, even worse, her scenes are so poorly written it’s a wonder Kurylenko was able to perform them with such sincerity. Claire Foy had something going with Ms. Karp, especially with the eeriness that comes with not blinking throughout the entire film, but Daniel Waters really misses the mark in terms of using Ms. Karp’s storyline to build Lissa’s predicament.

Vampire Academy” isn’t a particularly well-made book-to-film adaptation, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun and there’s nothing wrong with going to the movies, letting loose and getting a little silly. Ultimately, the bad will likely outweigh the good and turn this potential franchise into a fleeting film fad, but for now, there’s no harm in giving it a go for the sake of a quick, upbeat laugh and thrill.

Technical: B

Acting: B+

Story: C+

Overall: B
