The second trailer and a new poster for The King's Man have been unveiled by 20th Century Fox, and they're bound to make fans of the franchise more excited for the upcoming prequel. Set a hundred years before the events of the other movies, The King's Man will explore the story of some of history's worst tyrants and criminal masterminds conspiring to exterminate millions of people, and the formation of our favorite independent intelligence agency to stop them. After previously helming the past two installments of the movie series, Matthew Vaughn is back to direct using a screenplay co-written with Karl Gajdusek. Vaughn is also producing along with David Reied and Adam Bohling with plans to release the movie on Feb. 14, 2020.

Canneseries: Watch Pulse Films’ Star-Studded But Unseen ‘Do Not Disturb’ (Exclusive)
One of the favorites heading into this year’s Canneseries Short-Form Competition has to be the star-studded anthology series “Do Not Disturb,” spearheaded by the U.K.’s Pulse Films in association with Blackpills Studio.

Michael Haussman and Larry Volpi created the series, and its nine, 10-minute episodes were written by the two along with Olivia Poulet, Mike O’Leary, Nida Manzoor and Davey Spens.

Do Not Disturb” takes the audience behind the little plastic placards we hang on hotel-room door handles when we need a nap, want to be left alone, or perhaps up to something a bit more adult, as is often the case in this show.

Some episodes are comedies, some terrifying and others sultry, but each explores the darker side of humanity that is often kept behind closed doors.

The series’ directors include Haussman, Jude Law, Jake Chapman, Mounia Akl, Dylan Southern, Will Lovelace, Zoe Casavettes and Matthew Huston.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Edward Holcroft

Some actors like to keep an air of mystery about them, and Edward Holcroft is one of those that tends to only share what he wants to say at any given moment. He’s a hardworking actor however that has put up a few notable roles and been instrumental in helping various projects succeed. To say that he’s still kind of working out the kinks in his act might not be totally fair since he is an established actor, but he’s been in the business for less than a decade and as such it would seem that he’s still kind of

2018 Emmy awards nominations ballot: See all 33 Best Limited Series contenders from ‘Alias Grace’ to ‘Waco’

2018 Emmy awards nominations ballot: See all 33 Best Limited Series contenders from ‘Alias Grace’ to ‘Waco’
All 22,000 plus voting members of the TV academy have until June 25 to cast their ballots for program nominations (save for animated documentary/nonfiction which are restricted to their peer groups.) Unlike the Oscars, Emmy voters do not rank their choices and nominees are determined by a simple tally. In the past, voters were limited in the number of programs that they could put forth. Last year that cap (which was usually 10 per category) was lifted.

While there has been an explosion in the number of comedy and drama series in the last several years, the limited series genre had been almost static. There were 25 entries in 2015, 26 in 2016 and 25 again in 2017. But this year there has been an uptick, with 33 such shows submitted. Even so, with six nominees for Best Limited Series, the odds for each of the entries detailed below are pretty good. We fill find out which half dozen

‘Alias Grace’ Review

On paper, Netflix’s newest original series, Alias Grace, appears to be another product of Seo and word cloud analysis:

“People watch period pieces like Downtown Abby and fiction based on true crime.”

Hulu had a big hit with adapting a Margaret Atwood book!”

“Women Behind Bars and Killer Women both get lots of hits among a key demo.”

Regardless if the methods for generating content like House of Cards and Stranger Things are stomach churning, the results are generally enjoyable. Alias Grace, based on Atwood’s fictionalized examination of the Irish immigrant at the center of a historical 19th-century murder, is no exception.

While a narrative primarily organized around the psychiatric evaluation (think In Treatment) of the increasingly troubled life of a young servant in Victorian Ontario may not be promising, the result is cooly intoxicating. Anchored by Sarah Gadon’s subtle performance as Grace Marks, and punctuated by stabs of del Toro-esque imagery,

'Alias Grace': How a True-Crime Drama Became the Most Relevant Show on TV

'Alias Grace': How a True-Crime Drama Became the Most Relevant Show on TV
For two decades, Sarah Polley has been desperately trying to adapt Margaret Atwood's book about a young woman who was abused, mistreated and silenced in the mid-1800s. By the time the 38-year-old actor-turned-writer/director brought the author's 1996 historical novel Alias Grace to the small screen – the six-hour miniseries began streaming on Netflix in early November – she had no idea she'd end up discussing the very same issues taking place in the 21st century.

‘Alias Grace’: An All-Women Team (With Some Inspiration From ‘American Psycho’) Created the Anti-‘Downton Abbey’
“She feels like prey. She lives in a completely predatory world. Her job is to not respond to endless amounts of harassment and violence.”

This is how writer and producer Sarah Polley describes the central character of the Netflix/CBC miniseries “Alias Grace.” This is also a statement that makes the based-on-real-events story of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a 19th-century Canadian woman who spent years in prison after being convicted of murder, infinitely relatable to many women yesterday and today, but hopefully less so tomorrow.

“I think a lot of what [‘Alias Grace’] explores is what it meant to be a woman and how much it meant to be a young woman at that time, but also what it means to be a young woman at any time, when especially it’s exaggerated in Grace Marks’ case,” Polley told IndieWire. “I think a lot of women can relate to that, right now

‘Alias Grace’ Review: Margaret Atwood’s Novel Once Again Gets Beautiful, Brutal, and Feminist Treatment in Netflix Miniseries
Brace yourself: You’re going to want to binge “Alias Grace.” The six-episode limited series — streaming now on Netflix following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and subsequent broadcasting in Canada on the CBC — is downright hypnotic, rapturous, and engrossing.

Watching evokes the sense of sinking into a great novel, which seems only fitting, given that it’s based on the 1996 book by Margaret Atwood, one of our greatest living novelists. But everything in the execution is owed to the detail-rich writing of Sarah Polley and direction of Mary Harron, who take this real-life tale of murder and give it rich depths, digging into the harm done to a human soul by a lifetime of oppression.

At the center of “Grace” is Grace Marks (played by Sarah Gadon in a star-making turn), a 19th-century Irish immigrant convicted of a notorious double murder, whose mental state comes

Alias Grace Review: Netflix's Elegant Murder Tale Builds to a Killer Finish

Alias Grace Review: Netflix's Elegant Murder Tale Builds to a Killer Finish
Patience is a virtue… especially when judging a TV series. My feelings about Netflix’s 19th-century crime drama Alias Grace, which debuts today, see-sawed back and forth as I made my way through all six episodes. There’s a lot to like about it — it’s gorgeously shot and quietly compelling, with a potent lead performance from Sarah Gadon — but at times, it gets sluggish and overly gloomy. Stick with it, though, because the sixth and final episode is truly remarkable, weaving all of its disparate narrative strands together for a thoroughly satisfying finish.
