Terminator Genisys Trailer


Mankind has been all but wiped out. When Skynet became self-aware, it launched tactical nuclear strikes against the human race, with an army of robots finishing off the last few survivors. John Connor (Jason Clarke) leads the resistance, and the robots know this. In order to stop the war against mankind, the machines send one of themselves back in time to kill his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke). With Sarah Connor being a well-documented pacifist, she stands no chance of survival, leading to Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) travelling back in time to save her. But he arrives in a very different world to what he expected. Sarah Connor is a well-trained killing machine, capable of defending herself. Reese was not the first person, or thing, to travel back in time to rescue her.

The former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has signed on for an unspecified original role in the new Terminator movie Genesis.

"All I can say about Terminator is that I'm very excited to be part of the Terminator franchise because those movies - those first two movies, particularly - are brilliant.

Matt Smith Won't Be Dr. Who AND Sherlock. It Won't Happen. No.


Matt Smith Steven Moffat

Matt Smith has effectively ruled out playing two of the U.K’s most popular characters by shrugging off rumours that a Sherlock role might be his in the not-too-distant future. Speaking at the Wizard World Con, he said: ‘Listen, there’s no room for me on Sherlock!”

Smith, of course, was replaced by Peter Capaldi of The Thick of It swearing fame when he quit the job for pastures new. A tall, dark haired and handsome Englishman combining razor-sharp wit  and an insatiable charisma, Smith was considered perfect for the role of Sherlock by many, but those hope have been dashed by the man himself, according to Metro.

The BBC has revealed the costume for the new Doctor Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who. Like those of the ranks of the Time Lords before him, Capaldi's striking outfit is bound to become an iconic facet of the sci-fi drama. Described by the actor himself as "100% rebel Time Lord," the get-up comprises of heavy Doc Marten boots, a crisp, white button down shirt, a navy, Crombie-style dress coat lined with luxurious red satin and a matching waistcoat.

Doctor Who fans got a real treat yesterday, when the costume of the 12th Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, was unveiled. The Doctor’s costume is hugely identifiable with the actor who wore it – Tom Baker’s scarf or Matt Smith’s bowtie being a couple of examples. Capaldi’s outfit will consist of a dark blue Crombie coat with red lining, dark blue trousers, white shirt and black Dr Marten shoes, possibly an echo of the tenth Doctor’s Converse shoes. It's the work of costume designer Howard Burden.

New Years Day was the busiest day of the year for the BBC iPlayer service, with the majority of the nation engaging in what’s widely known as ‘a duvet day’. Basically, hung-over people watched Dr. Who. That’s what happened. It was a pretty monumental episode, too, with Peter Capaldi coming into to replace the now-departed Matt Smith.

And, like everyone else, Capaldi had to go back to work this week; unlike everyone else, he was filming his first full episode of Dr. Who. With 10.2 million tuning in on Christmas Day, the return of The Doctor highly is anticipated.

'Doctor Who' Exterminated By 'Mrs Brown's Boys' In Xmas TV Showdown


Matt Smith Steven Moffat Peter Capaldi Brendan O'Carroll

Hit BBC comedy Mrs Brown's Boys saw off the likes of Doctor Who, Downton Abbey and Coronation Street in newly published surprise Christmas Day television viewing figures. The BBC may have been the overall winners in terms of audience share on Christmas Day this year, but Brendan O'Carroll's British-Irish sitcom proved consistently the most popular programme of the day.

The show's Christmas Day special, 'Buckin' Mammy', was Mrs Brown's first broadcast of original content this year and was duly rewarded with its biggest live audience on record: an average of 9.4 million viewers, or 35.5 per cent of the viewer share, peaking at 9.8m (37.9%) in its final five minutes.

Matt Smith Bows Out Of 'Doctor Who' In Dramatic Christmas Special


Matt Smith Peter Capaldi Karen Gillan Jenna-louise Coleman Doctor Who

There was a lot of promise surrounding the Christmas episode of Doctor Who and when it aired on BBC 1 on Christmas Day it very much lived up to the hype and expectation buzzing around the show and the exit of the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith. The exit of Smith also meant one other thing, the regeneration of the Doctor into his twelfth form: enter Peter Capaldi.

Doctor Who
The Doctor had business to attend to before he could bow out

The Christmas special - called 'The Time of the Doctor,' in relation to the fiftieth anniversary episode 'The Day of the Doctor' - was full of action and packed in plenty of entertainment in the lead up to Smith's eventual bow out from the show that launched him to stardom. The episode featured Daleks, Time Lords, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, a town called Christmas and more and even Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), the Doctor's former assistant, made an appearance in the show to say farewell the Eleventh Doctor.

The Extended BBC America Trailer For The Doctor Who Christmas Special Is As Cheesy As It Is Fascinating


Matt Smith Jenna-louise Coleman

It’s that time of year again – time to get overly emotional or just slightly snooty over the newly released US extended trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas special. This one, however, is super special, if you’ll pardon the wording, since it also marks the departure of the 11th Doctor and, correspondingly, Matt Smith.

The last time this happened to us (“us” referring here to whovians as an emotional support system, which was sorely needed at the time) was in the 2010 Christmas episode. Let’s just say bulk quantities of tissues were used during that episode. With current showrunner Steven Moffat’s propensity for killing off his characters (even though he mostly resurrects them afterwards) whovians the world over should probably gear up for a tear-jerker.

According to the trailer, this year’s episode will be a family affair, with the Doctor visiting his companion Clara at her parents’ Christmas dinner. We’ll also get to see some new friends in the face of the Silence, the Weeping Angels (always a favorite monster) and, natch, some Daleks, ready to wreak havoc.

Matt Smith Steven Moffat John Hurt David Tennant

Saturday night's long-awaited Doctor Who 50th anniversary feature-length special has come and gone, leaving the BBC sci-fi show with an aftertaste of success as the similarly landmark ratings begin to make headlines. Outgoing Doctor Matt Smith was joined by other incarnations of the Doctor, including David Tennant, John Hurt and Peter Capaldi, as Whovians were gifted with a breakneck storyline, the likes of which have never been seen before on the show.

5. This spot is often given to Peter Davison, aka The Fifth Doctor. His hiring at the time was somewhat controversial, since he is the youngest actor (besides Matt Smith himself) to take on the part of the centuries-old Time Lord. We’ve got to give it to Davison, however. He did create a complex character and was really adept at portraying the Doctor’s internal conflict. Fifth place it is.

Heads Up, Geeks! Doctor Who's Matt Smith Rumored To Be Involved In Star Wars: Episode VII

Matt Smith is stepping down from his Doctor Who reign this Christmas (in case you hadn’t heard), which opens up a realm of other possibilities for the 31-year-old star. Rumor has it that among those is – now don’t get overly excited, Whovians – a part in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. Now that would be one geek crossover to rule them all obviously, however nothing has been confirmed at this point.

Wonder where Smith would fit in with 'Episode VII'?

According to a “fairly well-placed source” speaking for Bleeding Cool, Smith went in for a meeting with JJ Abrams and George Lucas. However, that’s where the information ends. The source didn’t know whether the meeting was an audition, a screen test or just a talk, but the possibility alone was enough to set tongues wagging across the deepest, darkest, nerdiest reaches of the internet.

Doctor Who Star Matt Smith Set To Star In Stage Musical Adaptation Of 'American Psycho'


Matt Smith

As the lead in the long-running sci-fi series Doctor Who, Matt Smith is probably one of the most British actors most people can think of, and yet the actor has landed the lead in American Psycho, the musical, the Daily Mail reports. 30-year-old Smith began rehearsals for the musical adaptation of the infamous Bret Easton Ellis novel.

Can Smith pull off the sociopath look?

Fresh off wrapping his final scenes as the 11th Doctor (sad times, we know) will play Patrick Bateman – a fictional Wall Street investment banker from the 80s, who is also secretly a serial killer. The role of Bateman, who engages in twisted and sadistic crimes in his spare time, has previously been played to perfection by Christian Bale in the 2000 movie adaptation. Now Matt Smith will take on the challenge on stage at London’s Almeida Theatre, starting from December – about the same time, when Peter Capaldi will take over from Smith as the twelfth Doctor on the popular series.

Peter Capaldi: Twitter Explodes In Welcome For New Doctor Who


Peter Capaldi Mark Gatiss David Tennant Matt Smith

Hoardes tuned in to the BBC last night (4th August) to watch Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor and be the first to hear the news. Peter Capaldi was finally unveiled after plenty of hype, reminiscing and dry ice. The 55-year-old new Doctor, famous for his role as the profanity-prone Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It, walked out onstage to a storm of applause and seemed slightly bewildered by it all.

Let's All Hope He Keeps That Fabulous 'Tache!

Well, the Doctor's still white and male, so no major changes there, despite betting and predictions, but Capaldi will represent an older generation than the previous three Doctors, harking back to the original TV series where the Whos were slightly more aged gentlemen than David Tennant or Matt Smith. Keen eyes will have already noticed that Capaldi, a DW fan himself, has already acquainted himself in front of the camera on the series, having appeared in 'The Fires of Pompeii' episode alongside David Tennant.

Peter Capaldi Matt Smith

Peter Capaldi has been chosen to play Doctor Who, battling off competition from hundreds of potential Time Lords to emerge as the victor and the twelfth actor to portray the iconic role. The BBC confirmed that 55-year-old will make his debut as the Doctor during this year's Christmas special, with the Glasgow-born actor due to begin filming for the show this fall.

Capaldi, who won the Oscar for best short film in 1994, was announced as the new Time Lord during a live show presented by Zoe Ball and featuring interviews from current Doctor Matt Smith and the show's head-honcho Steven Moffat, which aired on BBC1 on Sunday (4 August) night. Until last night's show, only ten people knew of Capaldi's appointment, and as he made clear in his on-screen interview, it was an immense relief to finally have the secret out in the open at last.

Whovians Await The Reveal Of The New Doctor, But Matt Smith Already Loves Him/Her


Matt Smith

Audiences might love or hate the new Doctor, after Matt Smith steps down from Doctor Who this Christmas, but the actor himself apparently loves his replacement. According to The Mirror, Smith sat down with the as-of-yet-unknown actor, codenamed Houdini and had a chat about playing the iconic character and handling the pressures of fame.

Smith reportedly loves his successor.

According to some reports, the new actor had been cast sometime ago. It was only recently however that Smith managed to sit down with his replacement. The current DW actor shared some wisdom with his successor, suggesting that the new actor is someone of lesser fame than Smith himself. This isn’t too difficult to imagine of course, with Matt Smith having achieved international acclaim for his performance as the 11th Doctor.

With Matt Smith's time as the Universe's most famous time altering, Tardis-flying hero, Doctor Who, coming to an end, we've all been scratching our heads over the prospect of his potential successor. Could it be a man, a woman, a lime-green half-man-half-woman? The possibilities are limitless, however the reality will be made apparent sooner than some might expect, as the BBC intends on revealing the 12th Doctor during a live show being aired this Sunday (4 August) on BBC1.

Who Will Play 'Poldark' In The BBC's Reboot Of The 70s Period Drama?


Eddie Redmayne Matt Smith Aaron Johnson Jonas Armstrong Colin Morgan Rob James Collier

'Poldark' is set to return to our screens in a brand new reboot almost four decades on from the first episode premiere of the original series.

The BBC costume drama was first aired in 1975, based on the series of books by Winston Graham. It follows the trials and tribulations of Army Officer Ross Poldark's love life as he returns to Cornwall to find that the love of his life, Elizabeth, is set to marry his cousin. Embittered and unable to move on from his stolen love, he marries a simple servant girl named Demelza as the rest of his once idyllic life crashed around him. Filming for the new series is set to begin later this year in Cornwall, though producers are still searching for the right candidate to play the coveted lead role. So far, suggestions as to who might land the part include 'Les Miserables' actor Eddie Redmayne, Matt Smith of 'Doctor Who', 'Kick-Ass' star Aaron Johnson, Jonas Armstrong from 'Robin Hood', 'Merlin''s Colin Morgan, Rob James Collier from 'Downton Abbey' and 'Warm Bodies' actor Nicholas Holt.

BBC1 controller Danny Cohen announced the reboot, which will be adapted by Debbie Horsfield, saying: 'It has been a joy and privilege to commission programmes for BBC One. I hope audiences enjoy the range and creative ambitions of these new dramas for the channel.'

How Will Doctor Who Writers Explain Matt Smith AND David Tennant On Screen Together?

Filming for the 50th anniversary edition of Doctor Who is underway and the Daily Mail have published photos from the set. For the first time, both Matt Smith and David Tennant will appear on screen together, whilst speculation mounts as to how the show’s producers will explain away the presence of two Time Lords on screen together.

Both Smith and Tennant being on screen isn’t the only surprise for the 3D special though. John Hurt has been confirmed as one of the cast members, as have Gavin and Stacey actress Joanna Page and Billie Piper, a former Doctor Who star herself. David Tennant left the show back in 2010, when he handed over the Time Lord reins to Matt Smith but he’s admitted that he’s enjoying being back on the set of the popular BBC sci-fi series and is also happy to be working with his former co-star Billie Piper again. “It is strange being back in the same suit, but it also feels very familiar and comfortable,” said Tennant. “There’s nothing quite like Doctor Who. It has a wonderful excitement about it. I always had happy times there. It’s lovely to be around Billie again, even though I see her all the time anyway.”

David Tennant Doctor Who Anniversary

Get your sonic screwdrivers and Converse ready and prepare to run, because the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who will be a big one, featuring none other than David Tennant and Billie Piper.

BBC themselves have announced that the tenth doctor and his most beloved companion Rose will be back in the 50th anniversary episode, due to air this November, but they will be under different direction from last time, since this time Steven Moffat is behind the wheel. Ten and Rose will cross paths with Matt Smith’s eleventh doctor in a plot, which Moffat is so far keeping under very tight wraps. In fact, all eleven of the Doctor’s incarnations are rumoured to make an appearance in the episode.

Matt Smith, who plays the current doctor, praised Moffat’s writing for the anniversary episode. Smith has said the show "manages to pay homage to everything - and look forward".

Going Back In Time! The 'Doctor Who' Characters We'd Love To Make 50th Anniversary Comebacks


Doctor Who Matt Smith David Tennant Christopher Eccleston Billie Piper Catherine Tate Elisabeth Sladen John Barrowman Tom Baker Sylvester McCoy

The upcoming 50th anniversary of legendary British sci-fi series 'Doctor Who' has sent a flurry of fervent excitement through fans everywhere who are now spending every waking hour wondering what producers could possibly have dreamt up for this milestone celebration. Rumours have been flying around everywhere suggesting jaw dropping twists and major reunions (some of which are frankly impossible) and it is true to say that everyone is hoping for it to be their favourite 'Doctor Who' story ever.

There are, at least, some definite confirmations about what we can expect for the upcoming anniversary show. On November 23rd 2013 (that's precisely 50 years on from the airing of the first ever episode 'An Unearthly Child') a special 3D show will be aired on BBC HD and in cinemas. It's a rather apt way of celebrating 50 years; by using our own technological advances on a show full of gadgetry. Lead writer Steven Moffat told the Guardian: 'Technology has finally caught up with 'Doctor Who' and your television is now bigger on the inside' - making a reference, of course, to the Doctor's TARDIS; a police box spaceship that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Is It Back On Again For Matt Smith And Daisy Lowe?


Matt Smith Daisy Lowe

It looks as though Doctor Who actor Matt Smith, 30 and his ex girlfriend Daisy Lowe, 23, may have rekindled their friendship.

The Sun have reported that the on again off again couple may well be on again, after they struggled to keep their hands off each other at this week’s Esquire & Tommy Hilfger London Collection party, where Lowe was DJing.

Apparently, Daisy’s PR people were keen to ensure that she and Matt weren’t photographed together and even “jumped into the shot to stop a pap snapping the cosy pair.” The couple made “a big deal” of arriving separately so that they wouldn’t be photographed together but were apparently “all over each other” once they got inside. Daisy was DJ-ing at the event at The Zetter Townhouse, which was also attended by Tinie Tempah, who arrived in a snazzy looking Mercedes, Matt Smith’s chum Benedict Cumberbatch and The Kills’ Jamie Hince. The recently married Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood was also there with his new wife Sally Humphreys.

Fight! Sherlock V Doctor Who At The National Television Awards


Benedict Cumberbatch Matt Smith Steven Moffat

Obviously, both Benedict Cumberbatch and Matt Smith will approach the duel with compassion; they are of course great friends, but it does beg the question: with Dr Who going up against Sherlock in the national film awards, which of those fictional characters would win in a real fight?

We're plumping Dr. Who. By the time Holmes has determined the amount of hairs on Who's right leg by the length of his ear, The Doctor will have figured out how to banish him to a distant planet. And before anyone can say tardis, he'll be off. 

The pair are in the running for the best actor prize. Steven Moffat - writer and producer of both - said to The BBC: "Well this is very flattering, but also terrifying. I hope everyone votes with tremendous care and the result is an exact draw between both shows."

Err...what happened to Daisy Lowe at the Tommy Hilfiger and Esquire after-party held at The Zetter Townhouse in London on Monday (January 7, 2013)? Wearing a classic leather jacket, floral print top and biker boots, the model looked a little confused and appeared to be acting strangely. Perhaps she was just a little excited (or nervous) to run into her ex-boyfriend Matt Smith, who was also in attendance. Nevertheless, Daisy, 23, tried out her skills at entertaining the star-studded crowd on the decks before carrying on partying with her fellow celebrities.

The Doctor himself was looking pretty dapper in a long winter coat, paisley scarf, black trousers and heavy boots. His close friend Benedict Cumberbatch also attended the bash, as did Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood and his new wife Sally Humphreys. The couple tied the knot two-weeks ago in a ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel. Sally, 34, beamed with delight as she arrived on the arm of her 65-year-old husband wearing a cream dress and glittery heels. Elsewhere, the omnipresent Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw decided on a night on the tiles despite his early morning wake-up call, and was pictured with Kate Moss' rocker husband Jamie Hince. Grimshaw opted for a well-tailored suit, though looked in need of a serious haircut.

TV Royalty Dr Who Graces New Royal Mail Stamp Set


Doctor Who Matt Smith David Tennant Steven Moffat Sylvester McCoy Tom Baker

To mark the 50th anniversary of Dr Who Royal Mail has revealed a stamp set with the faces of 11 Dr Whos plus four of the most evil and notorious villains.

Andrew Hammond speaking on behalf of the Royal Mail said to the BBC that the commemorative selection will "pay tribute to the brilliant actors that have played the Doctor over the years, as well as the adversaries that helped make the show so popular." They'll be released in 2013, marking the 50th year since it was first seen, in 1963. It ran with series upon series until 1989 when it was stopped. However, in 2005 it made a triumphant return and has enjoyed fantastic viewing figures ever since. 

Matt Smith is the current doctor and he'll be one of the faces of the stamps, along with David Tenant, Tom Baker, Patrick Troughton, Sylvester McCoy, Colin Baker, and William Hartnell who was the first doctor.

New Poster For Doctor Who Christmas Special


Doctor Who Matt Smith Jenna-louise Coleman

In what’s fast becoming a Christmas tradition for families up and down the UK, the Doctor Who Christmas Special will once again be landing on BBC TV screens, and it seems like the broadcasting company are fully aware of its popular status, with first a new trailer and now poster making the production values of the forthcoming episodes look like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster.

The Daily Mail reports that the promotional poster shows the Time Lord, played again by Matt Smith, clinging on to a ladder, held on to in turn by his new assistant Clara, played by Jenna-louise Coleman. The pair look like they’re trying to climb the ladder in order to reach a sky-bound Tardis, whilst snowflakes fall around them to London below – Big Ben sticking out of the murk. This year the enemy that the Doctor must overcome is played by Richard E. Grant; as Dr. Simeon, he commands an army of vicious snowmen to do his bidding.

Normally cocksure and plucky as the Doctor, Smith’s character will have a somewhat different demeanor this time round, given that previous assistant Amy Pond was lost to him at the end of the last series. As executive producer Steven Moffat explained in a previous statement, "The Doctor at Christmas is one of my favorite things -- but this year it's different. He's lost Amy and Rory to the Weeping Angels, and he's not in a good place: in fact, he's Scrooge. He's withdrawn from the world and no longer cares what happens to it. So when all of humanity hangs in the balance, can anyone persuade a tired and heartbroken Doctor that it's time to return to the good fight. Enter Jenna-Louise Coleman..."

BBC Release Trailer For Dr Who Christmas Special


Doctor Who Matt Smith

The BBC have released a sneak peak of the upcoming Dr Who Christmas Special titled 'The Snowmen,' with the good Doctor, played by Matt Smith and his latest sidekick, played by Jenna Louise Coleman, introducing the trailer now available on the BBC's website.

The trailer doesn't reveal too much, however we do know that the episode will air on Christmas Day and will give us our first peak at Coleman's character Clara. For those Dr Who die hards out there then you wont need telling that Coleman has already appeared in the show, playing a seemingly different character in this season's premiere, 'Asylum of the Daleks' earlier this year. Given the nature of the pair's intro to the snippet, it looks as though we wont have to worry too much about them having a lack of chemistry, as they appear very much at home in each other company as they tease the viewer over the nature of the sneak peak.

The Christmas special has been written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, and will see the Doctor once again crossing paths with the part human, part reptile Silurian Madame Vastra (played Neve McIntosh) and her unimaginatively named companion Jenny (Catrin Stewart).

Outsourced Review


Very Good
The offshoring of U.S. jobs remains a hot topic in the news... and now it's a hot topic in the movies, too. (At least four projects called Outsourced have been produced in the last three years alone!)

Everyman Josh Hamilton carries this premise handily: His game of computer Solitaire is interrupted by his boss, who's telling him the customer service call center he manages is being shipped overseas, to India. If Todd (Hamilton) wants to keep his job, he'll fly over there and train the new folks, getting their time-per-call numbers down to something more profitable.
