(2017– )


Oscar winner Kenneth Lonergan on director's cuts, Scorsese and studio battles

The writer-director behind Manchester by the Sea and You Can Count On Me talks about his struggles with the much-delayed 2011 drama Margaret

Writing a screenplay without directing it is obviously easier than writing and directing, just because it’s less work. But it’s not as much fun, mostly because you have no real control over the end product. There are exceptions. I had a wonderful experience recently doing a four-part television adaptation of Howards End for the BBC, which was then beautifully directed by Hettie Macdonald. Nothing turns out exactly as you imagined, whether you direct your scripts or not.

Where Else You've Seen James From The End of the F***ing World

There's a lot to love about the new show The End of the F***ing World, a dark, witty, and unconventionally romantic British import based on a graphic novel that premiered Jan. 5 on Netflix. In the show, two teenage social outcasts named James and Alyssa run away for their humdrum school and dysfunctional families, only to find themselves in a dilemma bigger than they could have ever predicted. For the role of James, a 17-year-old self-diagnosed psychopath who only befriends Alyssa (Jessica Barden) so that he can kill her, The End of the F***ing World needed to cast someone who could be awkwardly charming and nervously unpredictable. The role needed someone you could find endearing even though you're afraid of what he might do next. Enter Alex Lawther, a 22-year-old English actor who, after this performance and a slew of high-profile upcoming roles, is poised to be a household name.

Outlander Season 3 Finale Recap: Loose Lips, Sunken Ship, Thwarted Trip

Claire, may I humbly suggest that you never set foot on a seafaring vessel ever again?

If the vagaries of 18th-century sea travel aren’t tough enough on their own, this week’s Outlander caps a season in which Mrs. James Fraser was pressed into service as a ship’s doctor, was forced to live aboard a boat full of men dying in extremely disgusting fashion, jumped overboard to escape said boat and then wound up on another ship and weathered a seriously scary storm before nearly drowning when

Trailer Watch: Hayley Atwell Is Proud of Her Independence in “Howards End”

Howards End”: Starz

A trailer has arrived for Hayley Atwell-starrer “Howards End.” Starz’s upcoming period drama sees the “Agent Carter” alumna playing Margaret, a young woman who lives in London with her sister Helen (Philippa Coulthard) and brother Tibby (Alex Lawther). “You are really the most peculiar girls,” Aunt Juley (Tracey Ullman) tells Margaret and Helen. She proceeds to describe Margaret as being “so independent,” and coming from her, that’s not a compliment. Juley clearly wants Margaret to rely on someone in particular — a husband.

“Since the death of their parents and despite their interfering Aunt Juley’s best intentions, the sisters lead independent and slightly unorthodox lives,” the official synopsis for the four-episode series details. “After meeting the wealthy and conservative Wilcox family on holiday, Margaret forms a friendship with the older and more traditional Ruth Wilcox (Julia Ormond). When Ruth unexpectedly dies, Margaret finds

Know what’s scarier than a mad witch with a mission? A mad witch with a mission… and a deadline.

In these newly released photos from Outlander‘s upcoming season finale (Sunday, 8/7c), Geillis Duncan Abernathy looks nonplussed as Young Ian struggles with his captor and seems to curse her very name. And why should the time traveler worry? As we saw in the previous episode, she’s unlocked the Brahan Seer prophecy — thanks to Margaret — and the events of the finale will help the crazy murderess clarify her plan.

So it’s no wonder, then, that Jamie and Claire

Exclusive Interview – Alex Lawther on The End of the F***ing World, his creative influences and more

Alex Moreland talks to Alex Lawther about his new show The End of the F***ing World, his return to theatre, and more…

First of all, how did you get involved with The End of the F***ing World? What drew you to it?

What drew me to it at first… Charlie’s writing. Charlie Covell, who adapted the comic books, Charles Forsman’s comic books, had made something which I didn’t recognise as having seen on television before – it was dark and used comedy to express that darkness, and seemed to take an imaginative idea and really go as far as possible with it, which I really like. I like when ideas are gone for and tested to their limit. Yeah, I think it was that, really.

I sort of get the impression that you’re quite careful and deliberate with the roles that you take on. Do

The Christmas ads

“Sometimes I feel we are so swathed in cant – argot, jargon, hypocrisy, sanctimoniousness – that I long for someone to tell me my ideas are too sheltered and academic.” Amen to that, dear Meg – just throw in an appalling eagerness to take offence on behalf of others and we could be among the inflamed sensitivities of today.

‘Happy End’ Trailer: Isabelle Huppert and Michael Haneke’s ‘Amour’ Semi-Sequel Probably Isn’t Too Happy — Watch
Sony Pictures Classics has released the trailer for “Happy End,” Michael Haneke’s semi-sequel to “Amour.” Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant reprise their roles in the film, whose title is almost certainly ironic — Haneke’s movies, like “Funny Games” and “The White Ribbon,” are among the most severe in the world.

Hayley Atwell Expresses Interest in Having Peggy Carter Return to the McU

So many great Marvel characters have come and gone over the years. Both on the big screen and the small screen in the case of Hayley Atwell, who has played Peggy Carter for Marvel. She not only appeared in the first two Captain America films but also had two seasons of her very own TV series following the early adventures of Peggy Carter. While canceled relatively soon, it was incredible to see what it was able to build. But recently she’s mentioned that she wouldn’t mind coming back.

I loved Hayley Atwell’s portrayal of Peggy Carter. She was both strong and independent and fun to watch. Especially on her show. During an interview with IGN, while promoting Howards End on Starz, she was asked if she’d want to come back to the McU.

"I’d love to see [Peggy] more in films. I’d love to see her in her own film.

Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell praises Wonder Woman

During an appearance at the Television Critics Association press tour to promote her new series Howards End, Hayley Atwell – who portrays the character of Agent Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – was full of praise for Warner Bros.Wonder Woman, with the actress sharing her thoughts on the female led blockbuster to Buzzfeed News.

I thought it was a triumph,” said Atwell. “I came out of that walking on air, and I think what’s brilliant about it is, it’s a genre piece, it’s a superhero movie, it’s pitch-perfect from Gal’s performance to the script to the music, it has just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek humor, it’s engaging, and I was so so surprised by the end of it. Seventy-six years in the making, that’s breaking box-office records, and it’s led by a woman, and it’s directed by a woman — I was like,
