I love the BBC’s Shakespearean history play adaptations that are collected together as The Hollow Crown, and while I haven’t yet seen a date for the new season airing in the U.S., the Beeb has kindly put a bunch of clips on YouTube, so at least we can enjoy those!
Queen Margaret strikes the Duchess of Gloucester:
Edward IV is captivated by Elizabeth:
Richard III dreams of the throne:
Richard III and Richmond rally their troops for battle:
I hear some of you like Benedict Cumberbatch? Here he is talking about playing Richard III in the new season of The Hollow Crown. (I just glanced at the cast list for that episode and it’s GREAT, of course.)
Apparently Josh Boone has confirmed he’s written a script for the Interview with the Vampire reboot. Maybe I will finally get around to reading that book.
Oooh, this looks good. Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, and Matthew Goode. It’s based on Andrew Hodges’s Alan Turing: The Enigma and will be in theaters in November.
It’s official! The BBC has announced that Sherlock will be returning for a Special – presumably (though not officially) at Christmas 2015 – and then a fourth series/season of three episodes. The Special will start filming in January. I’ll let you know as soon as they release more details. Excited?
How about a little Friday fun? Benedict Cumberbatch visited Sesame Street, tried to explain to a Muppet that actors are not actually their characters, and solved a little mystery with the help of the Count. Enjoy!
Well, this is nifty. BBC One has unveiled an “interactive trailer” for the upcoming third season of Sherlock. If you click on the bull’s eyes at the right time, the trailer pauses and you get to see clips and exclusive content. Enjoy! Sherlock returns in the U.K. on New Year’s Day on BBC One and in the U.S. on January 19th on PBS. This season’s episodes are called “The Empty Hearse,” “The Sign of the Three,” and “His Last Vow.”
