Lance Henriksen is a genre icon. And one of his most memorable roles is that of forensic profiler Frank Black from the “Millennium” television series. Those who loved the show will be very interested to learn about a new book, and a related movement looking to return the character to the air.

Back to Frank Black is a new book coming out next month containing a series of essays from an amazing group of contributors about the memorable “Millennium” series. And the Back to Frank Black movement is an effort to collaborate the efforts of fans of the show to inspire FOX Television to return their hero to the air in the future. Hey, it worked for “Family Guy,” why the hell not?

From the Press Release
Fourth Horseman Press has confirmed the September 2012 publication of Back to Frank Black, a book based on the FOX television series “Millennium” (1996-1999) and produced in association with the titular campaign to return its protagonist, Frank Black, to the screen.

Back to Frank Black offers fans of Millennium a hitherto unprecedented volume of material exploring this landmark series. The book features forewords from lead actor Lance Henriksen and co-executive producer Frank Spotnitz as well an introduction by series creator and executive producer Chris Carter. Back to Frank Black presents extensive interviews with cast and crew in addition to exclusive new material that includes an original essay by actress Brittany Tiplady. The collection further boasts essays from a number of authors with in-depth knowledge of the series including Joseph Maddrey, co-author of Lance Henriksen’s autobiography Not Bad for a Human (2011), and award-winning media critic John Kenneth Muir. The volume features cover artwork by Matthew Ingles and illustrations throughout by campaign founder James McLean.

“Millennium” tells the story of Frank Black (Lance Henriksen), a legendary forensic profiler gifted with the ability to see into the minds of the killers he seeks. Through his work as a consultant with the F.B.I. and the mysterious Millennium Group, the series offers a thoughtful exploration of the nature and manifestations of evil in the modern world. “Millennium” earned critical acclaim as well as a number of awards and nominations and remains highly regarded in the industry.

The Back to Frank Black movement—dedicated to seeing the return of “Millennium’s” unique hero to the screen—has gained support from throughout the entertainment industry, including active involvement from Henriksen himself.

Back to Frank Black is edited by Adam Chamberlain and Brian A. Dixon, publishers for Fourth Horseman Press and consultants to the Back to Frank Black campaign. The book will be available in both hard and soft cover editions with a multi-platform electronic edition set to be released later in the year. The collection will not be sold for profit and all proceeds will be donated to Lance Henriksen’s preferred registered charity, Children of the Night.

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.
