More than any before it, Hannibal Season 3 leaned on the written word of franchise author Thomas Harris, particularly Red Dragon, occasionally adapting entire exchanges and scenes to fit the renewed context of Bryan Fuller’s twisted love story. One scene in particular between Hannibal and Will splashes right off the page in all three filmed adaptations, captured in a new mashup of Hannibal, Red Dragon and Manhunter.

HBO’s ‘Westworld’ Trailer Begins the Robot Uprising Anew

by Kevin Fitzpatrick August 9, 2015 @ 7:59 PM
HBO’s upcoming Westworld TV series debuted a few photos and scant teases of footage to date, even amid a bit of cast turnover, but at last, the park is finally open. Okay, not that park. Still, see Jonathan Nolan’s vision of robot uprising and a synthetic future by our first full trailer for HBO’s Westworld!

‘Solace’ Trailer: Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell Play a Game of Psychic Cat and Mouse

by Jacob Hall August 5, 2015 @ 11:18 AM
The Solace trailer is in the unfortunate position of having to sell a movie whose real world backstory seems far more interesting than what’s actually on screen. Still, there’s something weirdly charming about this low-rent preview, which looks like it was dragged kicking and screaming from the ‘90s. And that’s appropriate enough since it was originally a sequel to one of the most acclaimed films of that decade.

We still don’t know much about Westworld, HBO’s upcoming adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 science fiction movie about robots running amuck at a high-tech theme park, but it was originally supposed to premiere later this year. Then it got delayed until 2016. On the bright side, a new batch of images from the series was released, giving us a glimpse at one of the most intriguing new shows on the horizon.

‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken’ Trailer: Anthony Hopkins Turns the Tables on His Kidnappers as Only Anthony Hopkins Can

by Britt Hayes January 21, 2015 @ 6:08 PM
Sir Anthony Hopkins is known best by many for his portrayal of classy sociopath Hannibal Lecter—and it’s that sort of sophisticated, unnerving character that Hopkins has made a staple of his career-diet. So it’s not really surprising to see him playing yet another aristocratic, maybe-a-little-unhinged type in the trailer for ‘Kidnapping Mr. Heineken.’ But why complain? He’s just too damn good at it.

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything concrete (or metal?) from Bad Robot's proposed HBO adaptation of 1973 sci-fi classic 'Westworld,' but with 'True Detective' raising the network's bar for casting, the J.J. Abrams-produced drama has assembled some major A-list talent. Joining the 'Westworld' pilot are none other than Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood, with 'X-Men' star James Marsden in talks for a role as well.

Watch the Full 'Thor 2' Gag Reel Before the DVD Hits Stores

by ScreenCrush Staff February 4, 2014 @ 3:23 PM
A little preview of the 'Thor 2' gag reel popped up online last week, but today we have a look at the entire thing, and it features a lot of screwed up lines, funny faces, slaps to the faces and falling down. Standard for any good gag reel but when you see men in capes doing it, it somehow seems funnier. God of Thunder? More like, God of Blunder amiright??

NBC Developing 'The Wolfman' As A TV Series?

by Kevin Fitzpatrick December 2, 2013 @ 5:01 PM
NBC's 'Dracula' may not have scared up the supernatural ratings one would think becoming of a Jonathan Rhys-Meyers take on the iconic vampire, but will 'The Wolfman' really get the blood flowing? Sources report that work has begun on a new adaptation of the classic movie monster for NBC's horror lineup, but with a surprising source of inspiration.
