Small-Screen Jabber 22-28 November

By Louise Bolotin

Drama
Michael Palin (left) hangs up his hiking boots to return to thesping in Remember Me (Sun, BBC1, 9pm), a spooky three-part ghost story set in a care home. Gwyneth Hughes’ tale is twisty, genuinely scary and shocking to the point you’ll want to leave the bedroom light on as you sleep. What joy to have Palin acting again – here an irascible elderly Yorkshireman who witnesses a violent death. No sign of his real life genial everyman persona. This is perfect Sunday night fare as winter draws in and we’ve not yet reached Christmas programming. Palin’s supporting cast includes Mark Addy and Julia Sawalha. Unmissable. Danish drama doesn’t belong only on BBC4, as The Legacy (Wed, Sky Arts 1, 10pm) attests. It’s a family saga premised on the unfolding of events after a mother dies and her estate is divided among her four adult children. As dysfunctional families go, this one has rich seams to mine as the siblings start ripping into each other and revealing their fractured relationships with their mother. A quality serial, with classy Scandinavian production values.

Factual
Even if you’re not a sci-fi buff you will be glued to The Unearthly History of Science Fiction (Sat, BBC2, 9.45pm), because sci-fi is one of the most boundary-crossing and innovative creative genres ever. This four-part, yes four, series is big on entertainment and dense on the details. Historian Dominic Sandbrook, who presented 2012’s nostalgia series The 70s, presents a sweeping and thoroughly comprehensive overview of the genre’s evolution in literature, film and TV. There’s a simple theme to each episode, starting with space, that knits all the strands together while an A-list roster of writers and screen stars lines up to share their views – Neil Gaiman, Richard Dreyfuss, Ursula K Le Guin and William Shatner are just a few. There’s also red button action straight after. Programme of the week.

From the future to the past, and Woolly Mammoth: the Autopsy (Sun, C4, 8pm). This particular beast died a gruesome death some 40,000 years ago in Siberia and then lay frozen, in remarkably good nick, under the permafrost until it resurfaced last year. The autopsy is fascinating in its detailed revelations, right down to blood found in organ tissue. Beyond the mortuary slab, controversy lies – that blood is now the subject of cloning techniques aiming to bring ancient mammals back to life. Ah, money. Or the lack of it. TV’s not yet tired of its poverty porn trope, following those pesky benefit scrounging claimants as they duck and dive to survive, but now it’s swinging the other way into prosperity porn. And here they are on the same evening in a perfect clash of rich v poor. Skint (Mon, C4, 9pm) heads to Grimsby to document the lives of the long-term unemployed in a town that has seen its marine-based industries decimated in recent decades. It’s considerably less prurient than the ghastly Benefits Street of earlier this year, and does attempt to ask searching questions about the abandonment of working class communities. Going head to head is Posh People: Inside Tatler (Mon, BBC2, 9pm), possibly the poshest magazine in the world, run by and sold to Britain’s wealthy elite – both old money and nouveau riche. Now here’s some real poverty porn, as editor Kate commissions a “ let’s visit a pound shop” feature. Cringeworthy in the extreme. Watch both – set your PVR for one or the other and judge for yourself who is more likeable.

Music
There’s a Pink Floyd theme running through BBC4’s Friday music specials, starting with A Pink Floyd Miscellany: 1967-2005 (9pm) – a trip through the film archives with concert performances and videos – followed later by a rerun of Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here (11pm), about the making of their ninth studio album. But the meat and bones is the middle is the glorious Play it Loud: the Story of the Marshall Amp (10pm). It’s the guitarist’s must-have bit of kit, and any axeman worth their salt will have at least one of them. The Marshall is a design classic that first went on sale in the 1960s, revolutionising the British rock scene with its scale for loudness. In the 70s the Marshall stack was the mainstay of gigs everywhere for bands that wanted to crank their sound up to the max. Motorhead’s Lemmy, Pete Townshend and Slash are among the legendary guitarists discussing why the Marshall was, and is, a game-changer.

Arts
The One and Only Mike Leigh (Tues, BBC1, 10.35pm) is the subject of Alan Yentob’s Imagine strand this week. The film-maker discusses how his warring parents triggered his creativity in childhood, leading him to make groundbreaking TV plays such as Abigail’s Party and award-winning films like Secrets and Lies. His improv technique is what draws many top actors to work with him – Alison Steadman, Jim Broadbent and Timothy Spall are among his long-term collaborators, here sharing their thoughts. Leigh, fresh with the acclaim of Mr Turner, also talks frankly about his struggle to make films on his own terms.  

Comedy
Some of our finest female comedians are on display in Psychobitches (Tues, Sky Arts 1, 9pm), in a second run of the sketch show based around the idea of putting famous women on the therapist’s couch. In the first episode, Michelle Gomez, seen recently as Missy in Doctor Who, pulls off a fine impersonation of Margaret Thatcher, nailing the former PM’s disdain with aplomb. Sharon Horgan delights as Tammy Wynette while Kathy Burke’s take on the queen – as a sweary, leery reprobate – is worth the satellite subscription alone.

Entertainment
Victoria sponge or Dundee? Nigel Slater’s Icing on the Cake (Thurs, BBC4, 9pm) explores the history of British cakes, our teatime rituals, the cultural importance of a slice of lemon drizzle with a cuppa and why we have become so obsessed with American-style cupcakes. Slater does these light-hearted incursions into our food culture so well, mixing factual exploration with indulgence. Put your feet up, cut a slice of coffee and walnut, sit back and enjoy.  

Sport
As dripping water in a cave gradually produces stalactites, so does women’s football slowly, slowly gain its deserved coverage on our screens. Because let’s face it, the women’s England team has been way more successful than the men’s of late. It’s also selling more tickets at Wembley for the England v Germany friendly (Sun, BBC2, 2.45pm) than the men’s forthcoming match against Norway. This is a warm-up for next year’s Women’s World Cup but you’re pretty much guaranteed a thrilling match. Kick-off is at 3pm.

Best of the rest
Most of us are still struggling with the pincers of austerity. Thank goodness for Mr Money-Saving Expert. The Martin Lewis Money Show (Fri, ITV, 8pm) is back for a nine-part run and if you’re watching your wallet you’ll not want to miss it. Lewis will be sharing his expert knowledge on budgeting and spending for Christmas, offering his predictions for when flash sales are likely to happen and giving sound advice on managing financial expectations.

The Purge: Anarchy Street Wars event in London

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Fri, 21/11/2014 - 22:14

Andrew Jones: In a future America crime rates are now so low because of one big reason, a 12-hour period on one night called The Purge, where all crimes, including murder, are legal. This means gangs deemed too intense for The Warriors roam the streets waving machetes and guns and smiling at their victims, like a cat toying with a mouse.

In London last week there was a less-murderous version of The Purge as part of a StreetWars experience. Teams were rounded up in Limehouse town hall and, after signing documents to make sure that anarchy was sanctioned without legal response, the hall was invaded by Purgers. They had guns on them. Water pistols. One squirt and you're dead. The only way to survive? Run.

There were checkpoints that served both as safe-houses from the maniacs outside and plotpoints for the story of the night. A cafe in an open area, where the leader of our team was killed as he left, a blocked-off house on a main road where a female purger was dying, giving us ammo, a printing place where weapons were stored, a car-wash where, what was meant to happen was a moral dilemma, sacrifice one of us to get a ride to the end, or let them kill the van owner and defeat evil.

Then there was the end, a park south of the river, where if you were unlucky enough not to be in the van meant you walked a mile through a tunnel to get to, for Purging. The end was an all out Purgers versus Survivors massacre. There were few when the horn blew and the Purge was over.

Of course this wasn't just for the fun of running around with an umbrella as a shield in East London, there was reason, and that was the release of The Purge: Anarchy on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD, and despite not having the flamethrowers and Frank Grillo As The Punisher-type of hero taking down Purgers, the experience was as thrilling and fun as the film.

Jessy Williams: When I was asked to participate in a mock The Purge: Anarchy StreetWars event, I jumped at the opportunity. Sadly, we weren’t to be given weapons of any real damage, just water guns, nerf guns and water balloons. In this autumn weather I was worried about freezing my ass off, however, running amok in the streets was surprisingly stifling. The experience was a hilarious and, at times, terrifying one. There aren’t many things scarier than being chased by a masked man with a baseball bat, even if you know you aren’t REALLY going to be injured. Teaming up with strangers and navigating the quiet roads of Limehouse in the dead of night was a challenge; no one really knew what to do or how seriously to take the armed and masked assassins. Nonetheless, we all liked to run, duck and dive in to quiet corners and escape their watery hell. I didn’t survive until the end, but I tried my damnedest. It was a great experience and a lot of fun, bravo StreetWars for bringing The Purge to life.

Stuart O'Connor: Most normal people are at the pub on a Friday night. Or at a movie. Or maybe even in a restaurant having a quiet, civilised dinner and a bottle of wine with friends (if they live in any other country but the UK, that is). But we film writers like to do things a little different, and so on a recent Friday night a group of us from Screenjabber found ourselves running around the east end of London trying to keep away from "Purgers" armed with water pistols and Nerf guns. It sounds silly, but it was great fun – and, truth be told, a little scary. We knew that we couldn't get hurt, but none of us really wanted to get "killed" if we could help it. We did quite well, managing to make it to the fourth checkpoint before we were taken out. All in all, a great launch stunt for The Purge: Anarchy – but maybe do it in the summer next time?

Q&A | Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Tue, 18/11/2014 - 22:00

Q: Michael, Transformers: Age of Extinction is your fourth installment of the Transformers franchise. What should fans expect?
A: I think this one is the best. It’s got a really fresh feel about it. The cast is amazing. We’ve got Mark Wahlberg starring and Mark’s record speaks for itself. We had a great time working on Pain & Gain together. It’s the same on this. In fact, we have such a strong cast. There’s Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, Jack Reynor, BingBing Li, Nicola Peltz.
 
Q: There was talk after the last one, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, you’d step away from directing this movie. Shia LaBeouf walked away, but here you are. Were you contemplating handing over the directing reins of the franchise to somebody else?
A: I did think about it, but I came to the conclusion I didn’t want to hand it off to somebody else. The franchise has a big, loyal audience all around the world. We started working on the script and I worked with Mark on Pain & Gain and it was great fun. When Mark showed interest in doing a Transformers film it got me really excited. We redesigned the robots a little. That gives this film a totally different look and feel.

Q: Let’s talk about Mark for a second. Can you describe his character and what Mark brings to the movie?
A:
Sure. Mark plays a father who is struggling to protect his daughter. We all know Mark’s previous work so you know just what he will bring to that. He’s a devoted family man, a great father away from the set and he
really brings that into this role. Mark’s always prepared. I just love working with the guy. He’s a pro. He knows his lines and all of the other actors’ lines. He knows where to stand.
 
Q: It’s a shame you couldn’t get Dwayne Johnson on this as well. Mark and The Rock had such g
reat chemistry in Pain & Gain.
A:
I did look into it. Dwayne was too busy. He had some other projects he was locked into. I’d love to pair them up in a Transformers movie. That would be great.
 
Q: Mark is obviously a lot older than Shia. Was there any talk of going with a teenage or early 20s actor as your lead instead of an older, established star like Mark Wahlberg?
A:
Yes there was. The studio suggested that, but I liked the father-daughter story and my experience with Mark on Pain & Gain was so good it seemed like a natural fit. We also give this film some gravitas with Kelsey and Stanley. Kelsey plays the bad guy. They are just great actors.
 
Q: Transformer movies are known for their big action scenes. But, it seems like on this you really took it to another level and pulled off some really complex action scenes.
A:
Yeah. We really pushed ourselves. We had some single 30 second shots with explosions, actors. That was great. It takes a lot of preparation and setting up, but it was definitely worth it. Our audience will appreciate it.

Q: What’s your favourite robot in this film.
A:
I like them all. The Hound character makes me laugh.
 
Q: Yes, he’s great.
A:
Yeah. Hound is fearless. He has a major arsenal of weapons. He doesn’t stop until he runs out of ammo.
 
Q: What’s different about Transformers: Age of Extinction compared to the previous three.
A:
This one is more grounded. It starts in Texas farm country among people living a simple, innocent life. It of course doesn’t stay that way. We go into outer space, to other parts of the US. We are in China and Hong Kong. While it is more cinematic than the previous, we have Mark’s character, a father, and we see the story through his eyes and his relationship with his daughter. That’s completely different. The previous films we saw it through Shia’s eyes and he was fantastic. Mark gives it a different feel.
 
Q: You were laughing about Hound and the fun things he does, but this Transformers, because it is grounded in family relationships, seems more serious. It’s not a kid battling robots. It seems like there’s more on the line here. It feels a little grittier.
A:
Yes, that’s really it. There’s a reason “Extinction” is in the title of this film.  This is our fourth film and the franchise has matured. We have to keep on improving, keep it fresh, keep the audience involved. That’s why this one has a more serious tone. It’s still fun, but definitely grittier and more grounded.
 
Q: It also seems like we get to know the personalities of the robots more this time around.
A:
That’s true. We wanted the audience to know more about them and the Transformer world. Their personalities. Their characters. We mainly just focus on five robots this time. That creates more of a connection with the audience. We have also tinkered with their design a little so you’ll notice Optimus and Bumblebee still largely look the same, but there’s slight design changes.
 
Q: Why did you do that?
A:
It’s like when Batman gets a new suit for each movie.
 
Q: The cars are also always an important part of the Transformers films. You are a renowned car lover. How do you select the cars that make it in the movie?
A:
One of the coolest things about doing the Transformers movies is car companies see the value in having their new cars in the film. So, they’d literally fly their new cars from car shows in Europe or wherever to my office. Bugatti, Mercedes, Chevy, Lamborghini. They all wanted to be part of this franchise.

US Box Office Report

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Mon, 17/11/2014 - 08:00

Dumb and Dumber To out-grosses Big Hero 6 and Interstellar

By Rich Matthews

Cue joke about the US box office dumbing down, with Peter and Bobby Farrelly bringing Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back to play dumb once again in 20-years-in-the-waiting sequel Dumb and Dumber To, which grossed (out) $38m to take the top spot this weekend.

Mind you, it only narrowly pipped the sophomore bow of the latest Disney animation hit, Big Hero 6, which declined a narrow 36 per cent to add a further $36m to its domestic tally of $111m – which is nearly $20m ahead of Frozen's pace at the same point last year, but don't expect to have the same kind of longevity as that female-driven picture.

Only only showing a decline of 38.6 per cent, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar grossed $29.2m to take third, with a homegrown total of $97.8m. Internationally, however, Nolan's space epic has the lead, crossing the $320m mark, while Big Hero 6 currently has $148m, but Disney hasn't opened it in as Warner Bros did Interstellar, and any Disney title is likely to be a strong performer over the school holidays.

The other new entry to make the top 10 was Relativity Media's romantic music drama Beyond the Lights at four, with $6.5m. Of note at the other end of the chart, Fox Searchlight widened the release of critical darling Birdman starring Michael Keaton, landing at 10th with $2.5m and a domestic tally of $11.6m.

In between, Gone Girl took $4.6m at fifth ($152.7m domestic, $318.9m worldwide), Bill Murray in St Vincent rascalled up $4m at six ($33.3m), Brad Pitt tank actioner Fury ($75.9m, $127.4m) rolled on at seven with $3.8m, Jake Gyllenhaal continued creeping audiences out in Nightcrawler at eight with $3m ($25m) and Universal horror Ouija scared up a further $3m at nine ($48m, $65.6m).

Next Friday should some box office records being challenged when Lionsgate bows the first part of the split up finale to The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, which is likely to be the biggest hit of the year at this point. Well, we live in hope – if the worldwide box office king of 2014 remains Transformers: Age Of Extinction, I just might retire...
