  1. Benedict Cumberbatch Looks Like He’s About to Leap Out Of My Computer Screen and Kill Me

    Turn that frown upside down, Richard III!

    Benny, I... I didn't mean it when I said you're being cast in so many things and talked about so much that I'm maybe getting a little fatigued of your presence. I swear. And I've never used the Benedict Cumberbatch Name Generator; I don't even know what that is! Stop looking at me like that.

  2. Things We Saw Today: The Villains of Guardians of the Galaxy Are Lookin’ Good

    Hey there, Nebula.

    Collider has two Guardians of the Galaxy Empire magazine covers, one of the villains (above) and one of the good guys. Nice.

  3. Things We Saw Today: A Discworld Cake, Complete With Giant Turtle

    Note: not a full-size replica.

    I can't say that I've ever wondered what the Great A'Tuin tastes like, but apparently it's filled with chocolate mint grasshopper cake. (by Art2Eat Cakes, via That's Nerdalicious!)

  4. It’s Official: J.K. Rowling Will Write a Staged Prequel to Harry Potter

    Of course, it's sadly devoid of Mauraders.

    We all knew that J.K. Rowling wasn't going to be able to stay away from her beloved wizarding franchise for very long after it ended, but we all sort of thought that she'd be too busy with Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them to get much else done. Apparently, however, she's looking to bring the Boy Who Lived to live theater as well.

  5. J.K. Rowling Is Developing a Harry Potter Prequel for the London Stage

    This is just like magic!

    When the last Harry Potter movie came out in 2011, no one expected there to be plans for a new film series within two and a half years, never mind a new film series and a new play.* And yet that’s exactly what's happened. In September Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was announced, and now we’ve learned that J.K. Rowling is developing a Harry Potter play for the West End. Accio tickets to London! *It makes sense, because dolla dolla bills y’all, but I refuse to be cynical about more Harry Potter.

  6. Dramélie: Amélie Director Slams Proposed Musical

    In Which We Make A Terrible Pun

    Yesterday we reported that the adorably whimsical French film Amélie is being turned into a musical. But despite the fact that it's not even been written yet, said musical already has found an impassioned critic in a quite unlikely form: The film's director. Don't hold back, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Tell us what you really think.

  8. A Peek Into The Alternate Universe Where Patrick Stewart Has Hair, Is Still Friends With Ian McKellen

    i'll just leave this here

    At first, I had some trouble recognizing Sir Patrick Stewart without his signature lack of locks. Fortunately, I just used context clues to figure out that it must be Sir Patrick Stewart, since Sir Ian McKellen is next to him. Because they are the perfect pair on inseparable best buddies. Here, the pair are actually playing Hirst and Spooner in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, though the play will be paired with Waiting For Godot, in which the two play Vladimir and Estragon at Berkley Repertory Theatre in Berkley, California through August 31. For east coast fans, the show is coming to Broadway via the Cort Theatre, and will open November 24. You can check out a video teasing the plays at EW.

  10. Pictures From the London Theater Production of Princess Mononoke

    Fashion for Nonhumans

    The Whole Hog Theatre company's Studio Ghibli-acknowledged production of Princess Mononoke is on break for a bit, but will be returning to the New Diorama Theatre in London to play another dozen sold out shows in June. Hayao Miyazaki's epic has been adapted for live theater with some impressive puppets in place of the many animal and non-human characters, and, in keeping with the movie's environmentalist themes, they've been constructed entirely from recycled items.
