Sat, 06/21/2014 - 10:00

We've been enjoying the dark tone of the teasers released thus far for BBC America's upcoming "Intruders," and now that the official launch trailer has arrived, we're even more intrigued. When can we finally see the show? Read on for the details and to watch the new preview!

"Intruders," from writer/executive producer Glen Morgan ("The X-Files") will premiere on Saturday, August 23rd, at 10/9c. The series is based on Michael Marshall Smith's novel The Intruders.

Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Exists) and Daniel Stamm (13 Sins, The Last Exorcism) are directing various episodes. The creative team includes acclaimed production designer Mark Freeborn ("Breaking Bad"). The series is executive produced by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner for BBC Worldwide Productions, Morgan, and Rose Lam ("The L Word").

Related Story: See Our "Intruders" Archive

"Intruders" stars celebrated British actor John Simm ("Life on Mars," "State of Play," and "Doctor Who") and Oscar winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite, Norma Jean & Marilyn, Human Trafficking) with James Frain ("The White Queen," "Grimm," "True Blood") and Tory Kittles ("True Detective") and introducing Millie Brown ("Once Upon a Time in Wonderland"), making her debut in a series lead role.

Synopsis:
"Intruders" is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.

A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, "Intruders" spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple storylines - a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run - begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.

John Simm stars as Jack Whelan, a Los Angeles cop turned writer who has escaped a dark, violent past for a seemingly quiet life with his wife, Amy. When Amy goes missing, Jack is plunged into an investigation that forces him to confront the sins of his past and reexamine the very foundations he’s built his life upon.

Big Casting Update for NBC's Aquarius Including Who'll Be Playing Charles Manson

Fri, 06/20/2014 - 19:32

One new series we're really looking forward to is NBC's "Aquarius," starring David Duchovny, and if you are, too, here's a juicy casting update for the show, including who'll be portraying the infamous leader of the Manson family.

Per TVLine, Gethin Anthony (pictured; best known as Renly Baratheon in "Game of Thrones"), Grey Damon ("Friday Night Lights," Oldboy), and Emma Dumont ("Bunheads") have all signed on for the 13-episode "event" series, which stars Duchovny as a cop who goes undercover to track Manson and his brood.

Anthony will portray Manson, described here as the “archetypal authentic hippie freak” whose intense charisma draws young followers to him in droves. A jailbird who has spent half his life in prison, Manson dominates his young female followers through a combination of sex, drugs, and a paternalistic and caring attitude that masks his inner evil. A dark, seductive force of nature, he recruits young Emma Karn (Dumont) to his ranks — but his interest in her may be far beyond the merely sexual. In fact, he may have embroiled her father in a far-reaching conspiracy.

Damon, meanwhile, will co-star as Hodiak’s (Duchovny) new partner — and the two are well matched in their maverick methods and savvy instincts. He helps Hodiak trace the missing Emma Karn, going undercover himself to learn more about Manson.

Synopsis
It’s 1967, and the era of free love, drug experimentation, and the Vietnam War is in full effect. When the teenage daughter of a respected lawyer goes missing, L.A. Police Sgt. Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny; “Californication,” “The X-Files”) starts asking around. He soon discovers that the hippie kids he’s questioning don’t take kindly to cops, especially one with hair as short as his. Needing the help of someone they will trust, he partners with rebellious undercover cop Brian Shafe, a man who’s more comfortable rolling a joint than patrolling a beat.

It’s not long before they stumble upon a small-time cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his cause. From there, they follow this man’s trail down a rabbit hole of drugs, sex, murder, and cultural revolution. Little could they know, however, the guy they’re hunting will eventually become the killer we now recognize as Charles Manson. He was a lost soul who desperately wanted to get into the music scene of the ’60s until something snapped. This is the show that will explore the cat and mouse game between him and the police that will go on for several seasons, ultimately ending with the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders.

Writer John McNamara (“In Plain Sight”) serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”), David Duchovny, and Melanie Greene. “Aquarius” is a production of ITV Studios America and Marty Adelstein Productions.

Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill Reunite for The Outer Limits

Thu, 06/19/2014 - 20:40

Between 1963 and 1965, ABC aired 49 episodes of the strange and the macabre in "The Outer Limits" (review). Talk of a big screen adaptation has been ongoing for a few years now, but finally some steps in the right direction have been taken!

THR reports that Scott Derrickson, who just signed on to bring Marvel's Doctor Strange to life, is reuniting with his Sinister co-scribe C. Robert Cargill to write the big-screen take of the cult classic 1960s sci-fi TV series "The Outer Limits" for MGM.

Derrickson is a longtime fan of the show (he has said in the past he prefers it over "The Twilight Zone," as do I), and he and Cargill will focus on one episode in particular: "Demon With a Glass Hand," which was written by Harlan Ellison.

The duo will be tackling time travel, alien invasion and genetic manipulation in adapting the episode, which focused on a man with no memory beyond the last 10 days and a computerized hand who discovers he is from the future. The man is being hunted by an alien race who see him as key to their survival, but he soon discovers a more complex and terrifying truth.

    New Demolisher Images Do Damage; Soundtrack Sample Now Available

    Thu, 06/19/2014 - 14:41

    We first told you about the "hyper-violent" new film from Latefox Pictures entitled The Demolisher back in February, and today we have over a dozen images and even a sample of the film's soundtrack for ya! Dig it!

    Check out the goods below via Bloody Disgusting and Fangoria.

    The Demolisher is both a character study and a psychological examination of trauma, resulting in an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far.

    “The film is complex and character-driven, dealing with an outpouring of raw emotion,” said director Gabriel Carrer, also one of the film’s producers. “It delicately juggles our sympathetic nature and reactions to chance encounters with the dangerous and addicted intoxication of violence. The film’s narrative pertains to the film industry, or any industry for that matter, and the level of abuse that can be endured,” he concludes.

    Award-winning cinematographer Martin Buzora captures the film’s fresh hyper-visual aesthetic. Along with Carrer, The Demolisher is produced by Barrett, AK Lamm, Duane Frey, Christian Burgess, Martin Buzora, Nathan Hawkins, and Andrew Wood.

    Synopsis:
    Directed by Gabriel Carrer (In the House of Flies), The Demolisher chronicles the story of a man named Bruce (Ry Barrett; The Drownsman), an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife, Samantha (Tianna Nori; Clean Break), a former policewoman and survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce’s increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steers him down a dark path of vigilantism. With his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia, and overwhelming sense of condemnation, Bruce channels his inner rage, punishing a young woman, Marie (Jessica Vano; The Unabomber Manifesto), and finding refuge in a world of intense violence.

    For further information, visit the official The Demolisher Facebook page, which will be regularly updated to include sneak previews from the upcoming soundtrack, produced worldwide by talented and upcoming electronic music producers and remixers.
