Peaky Blinders Season 4 Review

For us heathens that brandish figurative razor blade-endowed flat caps stateside as (un)official members of the Peaky Blinders crew, it’s been a particularly strenuous month or so. Season 4 of Steven Knight’s addictive gangster drama has been airing new episodes weekly in Europe since November 15th. Considering the manner in which season 3 concluded, international employees of Shelby Company Ltd have been suffering through their own form of detox, desperately resisting spoilers each passing Wednesday.

Thankfully, Netflix will provide the fix by releasing all six episodes of season 4 on December 21st. It’s a largely meaningless conciliation for enthusiasts, no doubt, as the entirety of season 4 will have already premiered overseas by that time, but I digress.

For those needing a refresher – in the waning moments of season 3, the Shelby family were celebrating their triumph over the Russians inside Tommy’s office while he distributed the spoils of the Blinders’ latest victory amongst them.

Warner Bros. Crosses $2 Billion in Us, $5 Billion Worldwide

Warner Bros. Pictures has crossed the $2 billion mark at the domestic box office and the $5 billion mark at the global box office this year, only the second time in its illustrious history that the Studio has crossed that tremendous milestone.

The week in TV: The Crown; Invasion! With Sam Willis; Peaky Blinders; The A-Word

Claire Foy excels in the Netflix drama’s second series, Cillian Murphy’s gang are back in force, and BBC1’s autism drama is superbly smart

We still have a little time to wait for Olivia Colman’s much-heralded appearance as the middle-aged Queen in The Crown, though it’s hard to see how even she could match Claire Foy’s perfectly pitched performances so far. In the meantime, the second 10-part season was released on Friday, and… could it match season the first, which bestrode the world? I am here to happily report that, if anything, it’s better.

As ever, creator Peter Morgan’s trademark mix of scrupulous research, informed speculation and a 10% seasoning of wholly unverifiable scuttlebutt leads to immense events being dramatised in very human form. As ever, it’s not all about pomp, pageantry and deference – though we get our little gullet-load of that – but about history,

BBC Hits Like Doctor Who, Sherlock And More To Go Online Over Christmas

The BBC has announced today that it’s giving its viewers a special treat over the upcoming yuletide period, as several of the network’s top shows will be made available to stream online. The series chosen include Doctor Who, Sherlock, Line of Duty, Planet Earth, Happy Valley and many more. From what we understand, they’ll be made available on the BBC’s catch-up service BBC iPlayer, in a move that suggests the corporation is trying to rebrand the site as a rival to the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.

BBC director of content Charlotte Moore had this to say about the treat in a statement released earlier:

“It’s fantastic to give audiences a special gift on iPlayer to complement our schedules. Sit back and indulge as we curate some of the most loved shows you may have missed first time round or favourites you want to watch again.

Is Fear The Walking Dead now better than The Walking Dead?

Jamie Andrew Nov 27, 2017

Jamie's finally ready to make the previously unarguable argument that Fear The Walking Dead is currently stronger than its parent show...

My partner and I had just finished watching the first part of Fear The Walking Dead's third season premiere. Despite new characters, a new setting, new peril, and wall-to-wall (not to mention zombie-through-wall) action, by the time the credits rolled she’d made up her mind that this was as far as she'd be following the Clark family and co on their cross-border, walker-stalker, Ex-Mex shenanigans.

Peaky Blinders series 4: Tommy has “atrophied emotionally”

Louisa Mellor Nov 22, 2017

Isolated, ageing and without the one person he trusts most, Tommy Shelby isn't in a good way in series 4, says Cillian Murphy...

“Tommy packs things away,” says Cillian Murphy. “He’s a really, really complicated man emotionally and he doesn’t deal with stuff.”

“He doesn’t spend money on therapy, that’s for sure. He packs everything away so then it comes out how it shouldn’t come out, or he just drinks a lot of whisky. He self-medicates. He doesn’t really emotionally process things properly.”

Losing Grace in series three put Tommy’s emotional development in reverse, says Murphy at the series four press launch. “Any progress he’d made emotionally through being married and through her,

Image Source: Everett Collection We can't be the only ones who feel like it's been an eternity since we've gotten new episodes of Peaky Blinders. While the wait for season four has been torturous (to say the least), there's some good news on the horizon for American fans of the series: an official premiere date has been decided. The BBC gangster series not only brings the heat courtesy of star Cillian Murphy as Thomas Shelby, the leader of a family gang in early 1900s England, but also some high-quality drama.

There have also been appearances from A-list guest stars like Tom Hardy and a few Game of Thrones alums. In other words? We need season four on Netflix, like, yesterday. The

Sally Potter’s The Party gets a Us poster and trailer

A Us poster and trailer have arrived online for Sally Potter’s dark comedy The Party which stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, and Timothy Spall; take a look below…

In Sally Potter’s new dark comedy The Party, Janet (Kristin Scott Thomas) is hosting an intimate gathering of friends in her London home to celebrate her political ascension, while her husband, Bill (Timothy Spall), seems preoccupied. Janet’s acerbic best friend, April (Patricia Clarkson) arrives and others follow, some with their own dramatic news to share, but an announcement by Bill provokes a series of revelations that gradually unravel the sophisticated soiree, and a night that began with champagne may end with gunplay.

The Party is set for release on February 16th in the States.

Peaky Blinders series 4: who is Jessie Eden?

Louisa Mellor Nov 16, 2017

Actor Charlie Murphy and writer Steven Knight explain the background to real-life series four newcomer, union activist Jessie Eden

Not every new character on Peaky Blinders is gifted an entrance like the one given to Jessie Eden (Charlie Murphy) in the series four opener. Filmed from behind in slow-motion, Jessie walks in to one of the Shelby factories with all the swagger of the boss himself, accompanied by a cover version of Tommy and the show’s theme song, Red Right Hand. Before she’s even said a word, Peaky Blinders makes clear that in this world of gangster bosses and mafia villains, she’s also someone to be reckoned with.

Peaky Blinders Series 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Noose’

Liam Hoofe reviews the series 4 premiere of Peaky Blinders

This review contains major spoilers.

As recent British exports go, Peaky Blinders has to rank as one of the highest. The show, based around the notorious Midlands gangster group the Peaky Blinders – has become one of the most popular British shows in recent memory, thanks to some excellent writing, stylish production, an awesome cast and a big boost internationally thanks to Netflix. The show returned for its fourth series last night, and it looks set to be the show’s most exciting yet.

Picking up where last series left off, the episode opened with an ominous shot of the hangman’s noose, a stark reminder of the potential consequences facing the Blinders after Tommy’s apparent betrayal at the end of last series. It isn’t long before every member of the group has that noose around their neck, and the

Peaky Blinders review – Adrien Brody joins Brum’s bloodthirsty gangsters

The Shelbys are back, with more roaming accents and gratuitous slo-mo. Plus: anthropomorphism at Chester zoo

You have to hand it to this wily upstart: four years on from first transmission, with a raft of starry names on the credits and a horde of new international fans (thank you, Netflix), Steven Knight’s Brum-set gangster thriller has made it to the top of the TV pile. The sniffy gatekeepers of “prestige drama” have been forced to stand aside and let Peaky Blinders (BBC Two) swagger on in. They have been scandalising us with their anachronistic taste in indie rock, wildly roaming accents and tendency to break into gratuitous slo-mo ever since.

And so, it may be mid-November in 2017, but in 1925 (adopts Noddy Holder voice) … it’s Christmas! The perfect excuse for some Slade on the soundtrack? They’re bold, but not that bold. Instead, a cliffhanger-resolving prelude reveals that treacherous

Christopher Nolan consulted with Spielberg on Dunkirk

While making Dunkirk, director Christopher Nolan consulted with Steven Spielberg.

When most war films arrive in cinemas they end up being compared to Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan, particularly in reference to that film’s classic and shocking opening sequence.

This was also true for Nolan’s first effort in the genre, and according to a recent feature by Variety, Nolan didn’t want to try and emulate Saving Private Ryan’s bloody horror, knowing that it would be folly to do so, instead going for a near bloodless approach.

“The film [Saving Private Ryan] has lost none of its power,” Nolan said. “It’s a truly horrific opening, and there are later sequences that are horrible to sit through. We didn’t want to compete with that because it is such an achievement. I realized I was looking for a different type of tension.

“I needed suspense, and the language of suspense
