'Penny Dreadful': What you need to know before the premiere

Psychosexual horror drama Penny Dreadful weaves together the origin stories of (in)famous literary characters while reimagining them in Victorian London. It’s kind of like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but with Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, and Josh Hartnett leading the charge to understand the weird, unnatural world around them.

Favorite and least favorite James Bond movies: The EW Staff speaks!

Whenever a new James Bond movie hits theaters, it’s an opportunity to bring up one of the greatest questions in the history of popular cinema: Which film about the dapper British superspy is the very best film. Which leads to a natural follow-up question: Which one is the worst? I grew up in a solidly pro-Connery household, and my personal favorite is the film that initially ended Connery’s run with the character: You Only Live Twice. After starting off with one of the series’ best openings (Bond gets killed!) and my personal favorite Bond theme song (sung by Nancy Sinatra and recently sampled to great effect on Mad Men), Twice turns into the adventure every 12-year-old boy dreams of taking. There’s the fake-lake missile silo, and a helicopter fight, and freaking ninjas. Even more than most of Connery’s films, Twice is ludicrously un-PC, but it does feature one of Bond’s best sidekicks: Tiger Tanaka. Conversely, my pick for worst would be The World is Not Enough. (Denise Richards is the best thing about that movie. And she’s terrible.) READ FULL STORY
