Fifty Shades Darker Trailer


When Ana and Christian had their first fateful meeting, neither party knew much about the real person they were meeting. Christian didn't know just how naive Ana really was and Ana didn't quite understand just how dark Christian's thoughts ran. Though from completely different backgrounds and living entirely different lives, the pair were attracted to one another and they began a relationship - one mainly brought about after Christian seducing Ana, his latest younger woman. As dark secrets were uncovered, it became known to Ana that Christian was into BDSM. Still wishing to go ahead with the relationship, Ana finds out just how far Christian is willing to go to get his thrills but realises that she can't be with a man who inflicts that level of pain on someone they care about.

Time passes, Christian continues with his business lifestyle and Ana starts a new job at a publishing house and the former lovers reunite whilst at an exhibition of photography put on by one of Ana's friends. Christian begins to realise that his feelings for Ana run deeper than the usual dominant / submissive roles that usually define his relationships. With Ana now setting the rules, the pair begin a true relationship but as stories about Christian's past are revealed and Ana is introduced to some of the women that involve his past, neither party know exactly how they'll make their relationship work without sacrificing certain aspects.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson reprise their roles as Christian and Ana respectively. Kim Basinger is introduced to the plot as Elena Lincoln a lady Ana nicknames Mrs. Robinson after learning that she seduced Christian whilst still of a young age. Whilst Rookie Blue actor Eric Johnson is cast as Jack Hyde and Bella Heathcote as Leila Williams.

Legends Of Oz: Dorothy's Return Review


Good

Despite substandard animation, this brightly coloured sequel has a strong enough sense of both its story and characters to hold the audience's attention. And kids might not mind the quality, as they are re-introduced to classic characters in an all-new adventure based on the book Dorothy of Oz by Roger S Baum (great-grandson of L Frank).

It starts the morning after Dorothy (voiced by Lea Michele) gets back home to Kansas after her iconic adventure. Her panicky friends Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion (Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer and James Belushi) summon her back to Oz, where considerable time has passed while a crazed Jester (Martin Short) kidnaps good witch Glinda (Bernadette Peters) so he and his army of flying monkeys can launch their reign of terror. On her long journey back to Emerald City, Dorothy has a series of adventures with Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), the China Princess (Megan Hilty) and the old tree Tugg (Patrick Stewart), who all help her take on the Jester.

Yes, the plot is rather simplistic (the Jester merely seems evil for evil's sake), but the real problem is that the animation is badly under-developed. Characters are painfully thin, with no gravity to them at all, which makes it impossible for them to properly interact visually. Fortunately there are some clever touches to the design work, such as the way everything in Oz looks battered and broken, which adds a badly needed dark edge to the otherwise sunny silliness.

At the helm of this new evil is the Jester, more frightening than funny, who plans to turn the leaders of Oz into puppets controlled for his own nefarious means. Along the way Dorothy and her beloved dog Toto meets a string of new and unusual characters including Wiser the Owl, China Princess, Marshal Mallow and former tree Tugg the Tugboat, as she sets off on another exhilarating adventure to find her friends.

Claire Danes Hugh Dancy Damian Lewis

Claire Danes has to find some new room on her crowded mantelpiece after Sunday's Emmy Awards where she pulled off the remarkable achievement of winning two consecutive Emmy awards for the evening's most coveted female gong: the best actress in a drama series.

The Homeland actress won the same award at last year's TV industry awards ceremony but this year she'll have to make sure she doesn't leave the shiny, spiky trophy in reach of little hands. Since last year's Emmys, Danes and her husband, actor Hugh Dancy, have become parents to a little boy. Now 9 months-old, Cyrus' curious little fingers might guide him towards any shiny object.

Renewed At Last: NBC's 'Hannibal' Will Return For Season 2


Mads Mikkelsen Hugh Dancy

It’s coming up to the end of review season and NBC’s “Hannibal” has made the cut. The news of the series, based on the Hannibal Lecter character popularized in Silence of the Lambs, being renewed comes in quite late, with the network having announced the rest of the shows on its fall roster no less than three weeks ago, but better late than never, right?

The belated announcement could have something to do with the fact that the series, though popular with its core audience, has only been averaging about 4.7 million viewers, including delayed DVR viewing, for each episode. On the other hand though, Hannibal is a favorite with critics, with the Bryan Fuller series receiving praise left and right. This is probably why NBC is reluctant to let the show go after just one season – after all, we know from shows like Community and Arrested Development that critical acclaim, plus a commited audience of fanboys and girls, usually equals massive backlash against a show’s cancellation. Network execs are confident in Hannibal as well.

"We're so proud of Bryan's vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling," said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke, in a statement. "There are many great stories still to be told."

She was joined by 2013 Grammy and BRIT artist Frank Ocean who has dominated the R&B industry with his spectacular debut album 'Channel Orange' and his rather inspiring love life confessions.

Welcome, Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy: It’s A Boy For Claire Danes And Hugh Dancy


Claire Danes Hugh Dancy

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy have had a baby boy! The Homeland actress and her husband have named their first child Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy. We’re guessing that he wasn’t name after Miley Cyrus… or indeed Billy Ray Cyrus but so far there’s no word on why they chose the name.

The couple’s rep confirmed the good news about the baby’s safe arrival into the world, to People magazine. Claire and Hugh have kept the finer details of her pregnant life very private but she did tell People magazine recently that she and Hugh are excited to be “getting to know our new Dancy” once the baby arrives. Well, now she can do just that and we look forward to learning more about the new arrival when news comes in.

Claire, 33 and Hugh, 37, married each other in a private ceremony in France, back in 2009. In September, Danes won an Emmy for her performance as the CIA agent Carrie Matheson on the hit Showtime drama Homeland, which has been a huge success both in the USA and the UK. Hugh is an English actor, now living Stateside with his wife. Next year, he will star in a TV adaptation of the story of Hannibal Lecter. He is due to play the role of Special Agent Will Graham.

Hysteria Review


Good

There's probably a fascinating, complex story behind the invention of the vibrator in 19th century London, but this silly farce isn't it. Instead, this is a comical romp that just happens to be set against the birth of the most popular sex toy in history. It's nicely assembled, with a strong cast, but the tone is so goofy that it never breaks the surface.

It's the late 1880s when young doctor Mortimer (Dancy) takes a job in London with Dalrymple (Pryce), who specialises in treating hysteria, considered a serious medical condition at the time, even though it seems to only afflict women whose husbands are neglecting them socially and sexually. As Mortimer courts Dalrymple's placid younger daughter (Jones), lining himself to take over the practice one day, it's the feisty older daughter (Gyllenhaal) who continually challenges his worldview. And as he treats his patients, Mortimer works with his friend Edmund (Everett) to create a mechanical vibrating device that has an immediate effect on his patients.

Everything in this story is played broadly, as if it's frightfully hilarious to talk about sex in such a straightforward way. But this prudish approach only trivialises everything about the story, from the premise to the characters themselves. And it doesn't help that the script never gives any of these people more than one or two key personality traits. The actors do what they can with them, adding moments of effective drama and comedy while hinting at the serious themes underneath the story. But it's so silly that we never really care about anything that happens.
