Being Human Seasons Two and Three Heading to BBC America

Published

on

Now this is some great news to end the week on: BBC America has announced the acquisition of Series Two and Three of Being Human. The show’s highly anticipated second season will premiere in late summer with the third season following shortly thereafter.

Being Human, a Touchpaper Television and BBC America co-production for the BBC, is distributed by RDF Rights, part of the RDF Media Group. It debuted on BBC America in July, 2009, and quickly won over fans, with a sold-out crowd at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con (where Dread Central had the opportunity to interview creator Toby Whithouse and the three leads). The New York Times noted that “all three characters are highly appealing, but the charm of the show lies in the delicate balance of engrossing drama and disarming humor; the series is not campy or self-conscious, it’s witty in an offhand, understated way.

Series Two has already started in the UK with Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow, and Aidan Turner returning as George, Annie, and Mitchell, the three twenty-somethings trying to live as normally as possible despite being a werewolf, a vampire, and a ghost. Here’s what we Yanks have to look forward to (a sneak peek follows the synopsis):

After the death of vampire leader Herrick at the end of Series One, the supernatural friends are hoping they can now get on with their lives, but an even greater danger is lurking within the very human world of which they want to be a part. Additionally, Werewolf George is coming to terms with the fact that he has Herrick’s blood on his hands and a girlfriend who knows his horrific secret. Meanwhile, turning down the door of death has implications for ghost Annie, but her confidence is at a peak and she’s determined to stand up and be counted in the real world. And, with Herrick gone, Mitchell must appease the vampire world – can he find a way to lead by example?

If you missed it during its previous run on BBC America, the entire first season of Being Human is currently available on iTunes and the Xbox LIVE Marketplace as well as Amazon UK.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
