Claire Danes Mandy Patinkin

Having recovered its reputation with last year’s series, ‘Homeland’ is set to carry on in the same vein by shaking things up once more in its upcoming fifth season. The show’s co-creator Alex Gansa was speaking to The Hollywood Reporter ahead of a panel at 2015’s PaleyFest when he dropped some teasers.

The headline news is that not only will there be a new location and a new job for central character Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes, but that there will also be a time jump of a couple of years.

'Homeland' Season 4 Trailer Shows Carrie Back In The Field But Is The Series Out Of The Woods?


Claire Danes Rupert Friend Mandy Patinkin

Homeland, when it was first on our screen in 2011, became an instant hit. But after its third season, the reviews were becoming more mixed and less reliably in favour of the Showtime series. The nominations and awards followed suit and this year Homeland wasn't even nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the Primetime Emmys.

Wish I Was Here Trailer


Aidan Bloom may look like he's got a lot going for him on the outside, in his prime at 35 with a beautiful wife and two loving children named Grace and Tucker, but the truth is he's floundering. He dreams of being an actor, but that's not a job you can guarantee stability from and thus he no longer has enough money to send his kids to a private school - even with the full to bursting swear jar. He decides to home tutor them after deciding against public school, and soon discovers that he's not the only one in his life who is having problems. With his father having his own issues and his daughter feeling deep regret after cutting off her hair, he starts to realise that he might have to save his family before he himself can be saved.

The Wind Rises Trailer


Jiro Horikoshi is an aeronautical engineer whose childhood was filled with dreams about becoming a pilot. His poor vision meant that he would never realise his ambition, but he is encouraged to keep up his passion by Italian plane designer Caproni. Resolving to design aircrafts instead of fly them, Jiro studies the art at university, during which time he meets an attractive young woman named Naoko. Their relationship was born out of the dangerous circumstances of the Great Kanto Earthquake, throughout which they helped one another off a fast moving train. As their life together progresses, Naoko falls ill and Jiro struggles to bring in a regular income. He must succeed in the challenge of building the most exquisitely beautiful aeroplane in the world in order to get back on his feet, as his career could be the only thing he has left.

'The Wind Rises' is romantic, heart-wrenching animated adventure directed and written by the Oscar winning Hayao Miyazaki ('Spirited Away', 'Princess Mononoke', 'Howl's Moving Castle'). This Japanese drama, loosely based on Tatsuo Hori's 1936 short story 'The Wind Has Risen', features the voices of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci in the English version. It is due for release in the UK on May 9th 2014.

'The Wind Rises': It's A Tragedy Hayao Miyazaki's Wondrous Final Act Missed Out On The Oscar [Clips + Pictures]


Joseph Gordon-Levitt Emily Blunt Mandy Patinkin Stanley Tucci John Krasinski William H Macy

The Wind Rises may not have been the flashiest or most talked-about movie at last night's Academy Awards but could prove to be one of the most arresting animated movies of all time upon its widespread UK release in May. The new Studio Ghibli picture was completely overshadowed by Disney's Frozen at the Oscars, with the winter musical's months of box office success and performance from Idina Menzel at the ceremony proving too difficult to ignore.

The Wind Rises Still 2
'The Wind Rises' Follows The Story Of Jiro Horikoshi, A Designer Of Fighter Planes.

Animated in the distinctive, delicate and detailed anime style, the Japanese film deals with challenging historical events and presents them in a creative yet respectful way. The Wind Rises is a look at the life of real-life Japanese engineer, Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II. The story follows the genius Jiro from his childhood to becoming an adult amidst the savagery of war.

Homeland Season 3 Episode 6: Still Positive


Claire Danes Mandy Patinkin Rupert Friend Damian Lewis Morena Baccarin

It's taken six episodes but finally Homeland is back on its feet and back to its old ways, sending blistering plot twists, confusing u-turns and stunning revelations our way. Last night's episode in the UK, 'Still Positive,' saw Saul at an all-time low, Javadi's true ways exposed and Carrie turn the tables on her abduction.

Carrie's Role As Double Agent Has Worked Well So Far.

The acting director of the CIA was still reeling after last episode's revelation that the gung-ho Senator Lockhart was in line for the permanent CIA role despite weeks of praise for keeping the organisation steady after the Langley bombing. He also resigned himself to accepting that his wife was still seeing the lover that she met in India. Another man may have stormed out or shouted; Saul had bigger fish to fry as Majid "The Magician" Javadi had captured undercover agent Carrie.

Homeland Season 3, Episode 5: A Yoga Hoax, A Kidnap & A Dead Goose


Claire Danes Mandy Patinkin Morena Baccarin Rupert Friend Damian Lewis

Until last week's final five minutes of CIA drama Homeland, fans of the show were beginning to wonder if the rest of season three would be as improbable and sedate as its beginning episodes. Just for you UK viewers, here's the recap of The Yoga Play.

We'd been teased by the absence of Brody for the first two episodes only to be hit smack bang in the face with an hour long, heavy handed, Nick-fest in Caracas where we saw the usually conniving Langley bombing suspect resign himself to heroin addiction rather than plot his escape

The Princess Bride Quotes Remembered (Pictures)


Robin Wright Chris Sarandon Mandy Patinkin Wallace Shawn Cary Elwes Rob Reiner William Goldman

The Princess Bride 25th anniversary has arrived and with it, a Blu-ray special edition featuring loads of brand new extras including interviews, behind the scenes action and much more.

This cult classic fairytale movie arrived on our screens in 1988 featuring a hilarious ensemble cast that has kept us gripped for a quarter of a century of watching. It is the story of how a beautiful young woman named Buttercup (Robin Wright) is forced into almost marrying the deceitful Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), before being captured by a group of not so bright but not so evil crooks; a Spanish fencer named Inigo (Mandy Patinkin), a Turkish giant named Fezzik (André the Giant) and their Sicilian boos Vizzini (Wallace Shawn). However, along the way she is reunited with her former love Westley (Cary Elwes) who she believed to be dead until then, and they all go about attempting to bring down Buttercup's fiancé, the future King of Florin.

Although it was never a major success at the box office, this classic Oscar nominated film was well-received by critics on its release and it has remained a family favourite ever since, being especially regarded as one of the most quotable films of all time. Some of the best The Princess Bride quotes are worth bringing up again:

Homeland's Finale: Potential Risks And Rewards


Damian Lewis Claire Danes Mandy Patinkin

As the second season of Homeland is about to draw to a close, the suspense has gripped a nation of avid fans. And, while everyone is on tenterhooks for the the outcome of the season, some are questioning whether it has retained the kind of calibre and complexity that made the first season such an enormous critical and commercial success. 

Starting with success that doesn't so much grow as explode, means that subsequent seasons need to keep to that kind of standard. The Guardian certainly things that season two leaves much to be desired saying that the "once-intelligent show has undergone a strange transformation: morphing, Hulk-style, into a more brash, straightforward action thriller that just happens to have some politics involved." Adding that "After 10 episodes, Homeland has lost all sense of reality."

But, as WBIR argues, "Homeland risks much each week, and part of what it's risking Sunday is disappointment, from those who don't feel they're getting all the answers they want and those who don't like the answers they get." Indeed, that kind of suspense, those risks that it takes every week are precisely what has made it such a success, the nail biting, heart racing suspense that pervades every Sunday night that it airs is a prime reason, along with fantastic performances, writing and directing for its success and subsequent rewards.
