You don’t know yet how he comes back. You don’t yet know if he does come back. You don’t yet know how his partner will cope with that emotional roller coaster. But in the end it doesn’t matter because one thing’s for sure: three is not enough for Sherlock. Season three has come and gone in Britain, and even though it hasn’t premiered yet in the U.S., Sherlock is ready and raring to go for a fourth season according to showrunner Steven Moffit. (more…)
Season three of the BBC‘s hit show Sherlock is set to return to the small screen January 1st, 2014. We’ve got a ton of pictures and a series launch teaser to get you pumped up for the return. (more…)
If you were dreaming of some quality Brit TV this Christmas, it seems that BBC One has answered your wish. The network has announced that the new season of Sherlock will premiere on New Year’s Day with the first episode of the three-episode third season. That’s the good news. The bad news, at least it’s bad for American viewers, is that you’ll have to wait till January 19th. (more…)
I never understood the thought process of releasing “character” posters for a film after trailers and teasers have been released. Seems to me, it should be in reverse order. Posters have been and should always be the promotional tools teasing what’s to come. Releasing posters post footage seems rather moot. Don’t get me wrong, posters can be nifty looking pieces of art, but it’s like, why do I wanna stare at a static image when I could just replay the trailer a dozen times? Anyway, The official Facebook page for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has revealed seven new character posters which you can view below:
And I always thought hobbits were meant to be cheerful, delightful little fellas. Guess Martin Freeman has a different opinion of adventuring across Middle Earth with a bunch a stinkin’ dwarves and wizard baked out of his mind. For more – oh yes, there’s plenty more – of Freeman flipping the bird head over to The Mary Sue where they’ve amassed an amusing gallery of just that. But first, hit the jump for more Hobbit News! (more…)
Yes, it’s here! With the summer blockbuster season well behind us there’s still one movie nerds are squirming over: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. We saw a few nifty posters yesterday, but they don’t compare to the majesty of a full two and a half minute trailer. Hit the jump, and enjoy,
British actor and nerd luminary Martin Freeman, known best for his work in The Hobbit, Sherlock, The World’s End, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, has been cast as Lester Nygaard in the upcoming tv miniseries based on the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film classic Fargo.
The role is apparently analogous to William H. Macy’s character: Jerry Lundegaard–the pathetic, amoral car salesman who hired kidnappers to abduct his wife in order to pay off his debts with the ransom money paid by his wealthy father-in-law (if you remember…..great movie).
The 10 episode series will be produced by Joel and Ethan Coen and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will
“follow an all-new ‘true crime’ story with a new case and characters all seeped in the humor, murder and ‘Minnesota nice’ of the original.”
This new adaptation of Fargo is due to air in the Spring of 2014 on FX.
Last series, Sherlock ended with quite the bang. Or should it be a thud? Either way, it was a brilliant finale that immediately sent Sherlockians wild trying to figure out how he did it. How did Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) survive “The Reichenbach Fall”?
This very first teaser of the greatly anticipated Series 3 doesn’t reveal how he did it, but it does hint at Sherlock revealing his “not dead” status to Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs), Detective Lestrade (Rupert Graves), his brother Mycroft (Mark Gatiss), and of course, John (Martin Freeman).
Oooh… anyone else get chills once the music picked up and his shadow appeared in the doorway? And is this implying Sherlock simply shows up at restaurant to announce to John he’s alive?!? That’s going to cause quite a scene, surely. Maybe not as big a scene as Freeman’s mustache will undoubtedly cause on Tumblr, but a scene nonetheless.
Series 3 of Sherlock is expected to air this fall in the U.K. and *hopefully* early 2014 here in the U.S.
At this very moment the Sherlock panel at San Diego Comic Con is wrapping up. Sadly, I’m not there, and I’m guessing neither are you. But guess what!? Neither are stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. They’re simply too damn busy.
Not ones to leave their fans at Comic Con – or elsewhere, for that matter – hanging, the two recorded separate video messages which were then played at the panel. Entertainment Weekly presented the panel, and because they’re awesome and swell, have uploaded the videos online for us all to enjoy!
And enjoy it you will. Martin’s segment is short, but very sweet. And I love his hobbit-y hair. Benedict has more fun with his, the cheeky bastard, even sharing the secret of how Sherlock survived the fall in “The Reichenbach Fall”!
The video’s not embeddable, so click the image to be taken to EW’s site,
In addition to the video message, fans in attendance of the panel are getting sneak peeks at some footage from the highly anticipated Season 3! As Sherlockology tweets,

They also report the footage being shared at the panel was, “a rough cut, with uncorrected audio, and will not be released online.” Well, bugger. I don’t care if it’s handicam footage filmed guerilla style, I want to see that footage!?
Hopefully, later this evening either EW or PBS will upload the panel in full. Until then, keep it tuned to Nerd Bastards for all your SDCC needs!
Peter Jackson tweeted another significant moment during his filming of the last two Hobbit films. This time around it’s the completion of Martin Freeman‘s last scene as Bilbo Baggins.
Tonight Martin Freeman finished his last shot as Bilbo Baggins. The end of an incredible two and a half years. I cannot imagine anyone else in this role – a character that Martin has nurtured and crafted with love and great skill.
As the production has progressed rapidly toward the editing and special effects stages, we’ve seen the last of those pretty elves, gritty humans, mysterious wizards and now that clever hobbit. That just leaves the dwarves. We now enter our final two weeks of pick-ups, and it’s wall to wall dwarves. These pick-ups have been grueling and intense, but I’m so happy with what we’ve been shooting. These next two movies are going to be pretty great!
We’ll get to see Freeman as Bilbo two more times, this December in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and in December of 2014 in The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
