Jesse Eisenberg Likens Comic-Con To "Genocide"


Jesse Eisenberg Ben Affleck Henry Cavill Robert Pattinson Jeremy Irons Holly Hunter

Jesse Eisenberg apparently didn’t enjoy being at Comic-Con, likening his experience at the massive convention to “some kind of genocide”. We know the crowds can be a little forceful, but seriously?

Giving a reaction to this year’s annual sci-fi and comic fest to the Associated Press on Monday (July 13th), the actor made the somewhat questionable remarks. “It is like being screamed at by thousands of people,” he reflected, “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.”

Emile Hirsch Holliday Grainger Holly Hunter William Hurt

The weekend saw an exclusive launch event for the new and innovative A&E television drama, Bonnie & Clyde. The two-part, four hour movie event - not quite a miniseries - stars Emile Hirsch ('Into The Wild') and newcomer Holliday Grainger as the titular bandits who earned notoriety during the Great Depression in the USA.

At a glance, the drama looks achingly stylish as the pair show that not only do they know how to rob a bank, but understand the importance of dressing well. Though history remembers the couple through a glamorised Hollywood lens, the pair were dangerous criminals who murdered and stole during one of the toughest eras of American history.

'Top Of The Lake': First Reviews & Elisabeth Moss On Shooting Nude Scenes Post-Peggy [Trailer]


Elisabeth Moss Jane Campion Peter Mullan Holly Hunter

Top of the Lake has debuted on British TV this weekend, establishing Mad Men actress Elisabeth Moss as a truly fine television actress in her role after secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson. The six-part series comes from Jane Campion who directed 1993 The Piano and who gives the new BBC2 bleak drama about child abuse a film-like feel. Moss plays the role of detective Robin Griffin who, although usually based in Sydney, Australia, returns home to the village of Laketop of New Zealand's south island to visit her mother who is suffering with cancer. Whilst home in the idyllic, mountain-framed town, Griffin is called upon to help investigate the case of Tui Mitcham (Jacqueline Joe); a 12 year-old girl who is found to be five months pregnant with her angry, Scottish, criminal kingpin father Matt Mitcham (Peter Mullan) suspected.

The first episode sets the scene of the eerie, lawless town perfectly, with Moss fitting in her unglamorous role as Kiwi detective, with the Los Angeles-born actress mastering the tricky New Zealand accent for her new character. The Guardian's Sarah Dempster evaluates the engaging new series as one that harbours many clichés yet is a "beautifully shot mystery, wrapped in an unpleasant thriller that's also a morality tale" The Telegraph's Serena Davies also gives the BBC2 drama a thumbs up for being "flawlessly beautiful" in its setting and praises lead actors Peter Mullan, Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss for cementing the awkward, backwood, small-town feel that makes it clear to the viewer why Griffin decided to seek friendlier climes in the Australian cities.
