'Hanna' Star Esme Creed-Miles on Walking a Line Between Violence & Vulnerability in Amazon's Series

Esme Creed-Miles is standing in a seemingly abandoned building in the heart of Budapest, Hungary. Behind her is a makeshift table featuring an assortment of snacks and drinks for the crew of Amazon’s upcoming series Hanna. It’s day 2 of Collider’s set visit to Eastern Europe, and while Creed-Miles looks ready to tussle with any evil CIA thugs that come her way, it becomes evident that she’s enjoying the break she’s taken to talk to this small group of press. Basically, she’s putting everything s

‘Hanna’ Creator David Farr on How Amazon's Series Will Differ From the 2011 Film

“I think one of the things we’re all proud of with the film Hanna is it was probably the first prototype that came before films like Hunger Games and Divergent,” says David Farr, writer of the 2011 film and creator of Amazon’s upcoming reboot series. Yet, as he spoke of the story’s female-first theme with a select group of press on a conference call during a trip to the show’s Budapest, Hungary set back in Mary of 2018, it quickly became clear that the TV show will expand on the movie’s original

Joel Kinnaman & Mireille Enos on Putting Their 'Killing' Relationship Behind Them in Amazon's 'Hanna'

Probably the biggest selling point of Amazon’s Hanna — writer David Farr‘s reboot of his 2011 movie, which starred Saoirse Ronan as the title character, Eric Bana as Erik, her father, and Cate Blanchett as Marissa, the evil CIA operative — is the on-screen reunion of Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. The duo first came to television prominence in the brooding crime series The Killing — playing homicide detective duo Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder — and, on March 29th, they’ll face each other onc

Everything We Know About the Breaking Bad Movie

It’s been a decade since Breaking Bad first premiered on AMC, helping to usher in a second “Golden Age” of TV. Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) transformation from Mr. Chips to Scarface earned 16 Emmy Awards during its five-season run. Now, five years after its end, creator Vince Gilligan is resurrecting the series for a Breaking Bad movie that will air first on Netflix and then AMC, according to The Hollywood Reporter. With this announcement comes a mixed bag of excitement, trepidation, and a w

A man, a baby and a mountain of bottles: What happens when Mom goes back to work

Everything I know about breast milk I learned in a course my wife, Kelly, and I took as we geared up for our daughter’s birth. That class laid out breast milk’s medicinal qualities, as well as the body’s way of regulating supply with the baby’s demand. But one thing it didn’t prepare me for? The inevitable moment when I’d have to replace my wife’s comforting nipple with a cold rubber one. In the beginning, I left the product purchasing to my wife. She’s the queen of research, and after intense

How the Godfather of TV Antiheroes Tony Soprano Changed Television Forever

In 2019, it seems like there’s a new TV or streaming drama series garnering accolades and high praise from critics premiering every week. But in 1999, the small-screen landscape was vastly different. Cable channels were a place where syndicated programming and tentpole-movie reruns reigned supreme — until The Sopranos. David Chase’s mafia series made an immediate impact when it debuted 20 years ago, officially putting HBO in the original-scripted-programming game and changing how TV broadcaster

How 'Nightflyers' Adapted One of George R. R. Martin's Most Challenging Books for TV

The flip side of that, which also plays directly into Nightflyers' plot of intrigue, falls into the risk of attempting to contact other life forms, should they exist, for assistance. "What in our history tells us that making contact with aliens would be a good or a smart thing?" Buhler asks. "You've got great minds who say maybe we shouldn't be sending signals into outer space. Maybe making contact with aliens isn't the wisest thing for us to do," he says, pointing to our own bloody history of c

The Resurrection of 'Walking Dead' Star Tom Payne

"This is a show where you can't show an ass crack or a side boob," he points out, highlighting the puritanical hypocrisy of balancing sex and violence in popular entertainment. "The first season I was in, I was watching it, and Alexandra Breckenridge's character [Jessie] takes a pair of scissors and stabs someone in the face until they're dead. And I was like, 'Wow …' That's another thing about American television, to me: You can't say 'fuck'—OK, maybe one 'fuck'—you can't swear, you can't show

The ‘True Blood’ Musical Is a Tragic Opera About Going Back Into the Closet

Creator Alan Ball also revealed why they didn't cast Jennifer Lawrence for a key Season 3 role. “True Blood” creator Alan Ball appeared Sunday at a 10th-anniversary screening of the pilot episode at L.A.’s Vulture Festival and, while delivering a live commentary, he dropped a few details regarding a “True Blood” live musical, which has been in the works since being announced back in 2014. Composer Nathan Barr is behind the project and, according to Ball, the music he’s heard has been “pretty go

Chloë Grace Moretz Becoming a Director Thanks to ‘Miseducation of Cameron Post’

Moretz put her passion for LGBTQ rights front-and-center and revealed her plans to step behind the camera next year. For a 21-year-old, Chloe Grace Moretz has already racked up quite an impressive amount of work — and an ambition to do more. Since making her big screen debut in 2005’s “Amityville Horror” reboot, starring a rather ripped Ryan Reynolds, Moretz has, by her own account, appeared in over 60 movies. But as she told the crowd at Saturday’s Vulture Fest panel, her passion for acting be

Rank TV's Best Witches

With Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina offering a darker take on the fresh-faced teenage witch — and Certified Fresh on the Tomatometer with a 91% score to boot — and a new version of Suspiria spooking it up on the big-screen, witches have been working some epic magic on audiences lately. Need more proof that vampires and zombies have moved on from the spotlight? Take a look at American Horror Story: Apocalypse, which is revisiting its season 3 witches from the Certified Fresh Coven, or

How 'Channel Zero' Became the Most Legitimately Terrifying Series on TV

As audiences have seen with Hereditary and Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House, some of the most jarring horrors come from within. How do these terrors manifest themselves in the confines of a house? What happens when Tom (Brandon Scott) and Jill (Maria Sten), old friends-turned-newly married couple, move back to their childhood town only to discover and inevitably bust open a mysterious door in the basement of their home? A whole lot of trouble. Secrets and lies eventually reveal themselves an

'The Body' Director Breaks Down the Hulu Horror Film's Crazy Kills and Bloody Ending

How exactly did The Body end up becoming the inaugural installment to Hulu's new anthology series of horror movies? Davis: This is really the fun part of the story, because this time last year, we hadn’t even finished the script! We were writing the script completely on spec without any clue that Blumhouse or Hulu were going to come calling. I turned in the draft to my reps on December 16 and we literally got the call a week later on December 23 -- it happened that quickly. At that point, I k

Hear Us Out: The Haunting of Hill House Episode 6 Might Be This Year's Best Horror Movie

Two 2018 films, Certified Fresh titles A Quiet Place and Hereditary, proved that there’s a lot more to a great theatrical horror experience than just a collection of jump scares — though jump scares will always have their place. And those titles were just the beginning of the year’s successful feature film horror offerings; The Nun scored at the box office (if not on the Tomatometer), and this Friday’s release Halloween was just Certified Fresh and is expected to cross $100 million at the domest

5 Ways Breaking Bad Changed Television Forever

Breaking Bad ended on September 29, 2013, after five groundbreaking, Certified Fresh seasons, four of which have a 100% Tomatometer score. Five years have gone by since Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) hung up their hazmat suits for good, and after all this time and all those Emmys — over the course of the series, it was nominated for 58 and won 18 — the show’s impact can still be felt across the TV landscape. Over the course of its run, the Vince Gilligan–created se

The Burning Questions We Have for 'Castle Rock' After That Baffling Season 1 Finale

Okay look, we get how upsetting it would be if the Kid, aka Henry #2, wasn't actually Henry from another reality… or even human. It would make Episode 9, "Henry Deaver," feel like a complete waste of time. After all, for nearly an hour, the audience was given the heartfelt backstory of the Kid's life across the veil. This other timeline acknowledged him by name: Henry Deaver. Sure that was a mind-blowing plotpoint, showing us that Henry here had gotten lost in our world after the other Henry dis

Eli Roth Takes Audiences on a Deep Dive into Their Nightmares in AMC's History of Horror

When Eli Roth's name comes up in conversations, it's a safe bet that horror films are the topic of said discussion. Even though it's been five years since Roth released his last genre movie -- 2013's Green Inferno, which was an ultra gruesome send-up to '70s horror classic, Cannibal Holocaust -- the writer-director still resides in the fandom that inspired him to make Cabin Fever, his first breakout hit. Demonstrating his love for horror cinema, its history, and the passionate fandom that comes

Showtime's Kidding Allows Jim Carrey to Channel Mr. Rogers - First

All September long, IGN is spotlighting the best TV coming your way in the 2018-2019 season.

With Kidding, Showtime steps into the tried and true world of children's en

The Secret Life of Steve-O

It's baffling to think that the same dude who covered his almost-naked body in raw meat inside a farm full of hungry gators is talking like this. This is not the Steve-O I was expecting. "I live a double life," he admits. "It used to not be that way. But there was no real longevity in the track I was on. There are different aspects of me. People think I’ll be just bouncing off the walls, and that’s not necessarily the case." I breathe a sigh of relief, settling back into the couch. He laugh

Netflix's The Dragon Prince: Review - Comic Con 2018
