Hannibal returns for a third season beginning on June 4.
First Look at Season 3 (Preview)
I’m patiently awaiting how the writers merge Hannibal’s capture in season three with the introduction of Francis Dolarhyde (aka the Red Dragon) played by the talented Richard Armitage (The Hobbit). It’s to be noted that Harris’ ‘Red Dragon’ is a story in which Jack (Laurence Fishburne) is very much alive. Several other key elements still have to occur if we are staying true to the published literary works – there has to be a wedding for Will, as he and his wife Molly will presumably need to move to the Florida Keys after the eventual capture of Hannibal Lector. Bryan Fuller (Hannibal Creator) mentioned that the show would continue to use its creative licenses to create a new path for the characters – a new journey in their existence.
The faithful fans pray that with the investigation of the Red Dragon there will be and eventual introduction of Clarice Starling. Also that the story of "The Silence of the Lambs" will be integrated somewhere, but I predict that the story arc of Starling is so dense that it won’t occur until season four. With Director David Slade at the helm, we can predictably look forward to a beautifully shot season, worthy of cinematic awards – though last season the heavy artistic nature often overcast the plot points.
However, I wouldn’t dare be rude and complain, I might get eaten.

A conversation with Bryan Fuller:
SEASON 3, EPISODE 8 - EPISODE REVIEW
★★★½ - 70%
- Freddie Highmore shines, with one of his seasons-best performances.
- Yet, even his brilliantly tortured soul cannot save the clunkiness of this uneven episode.
THE PIT, S3 E8
Week after week critics muddle over the ideal plot direction of Bates Motel.
Yes, we know the tragic ending.
Yes, we have an unwritten obligation to the source material.
However, do we?
Moreover, should we or can we?
I know I'm speaking as if I'm one of the writers… Respectfully, my point is clear.
Are the writers obligated to follow the beaten path?
Is it necessary to judge Bates Motel, based on its ability to reference the source material authentically?
I yell, no.
Hannibal successfully deviated from the franchise, while still keeping the essence of the characters grounded. Bates can achieve that too, if they stop listening to us (the audience).
Episode 8 followed some powerhouse episodes and was not a great episode itself. Simply because the writers could not decide where to place Caleb and Dylan within the storyline. The consensus is that Caleb must die for his sins. The most provocative question is when will he die, how will he die and by who will kill him?
I applauded his reconciliation with Norma.
My anticipation for next week’s episode is fueled by potentially seeing the raunchy chemistry between Romero and Norma unfold. In addition, there is excitement to witness the chemistry between the tragic Emma and her hero Dylan.
Norman, predictably always breaks my heart.

A potentially powerful affair becomes a simple walk in the park.
Helen Mirren expectantly shins as an elegant, tortured Jewish émigré, whom together with Ryan Reynolds walk through this predictable film. Such a powerful narrative and history wasted in an overwhelmingly predictable script, penned by Schoenberg who consulted the expert input of British-Greek playwright Alexi Kaye Campbell.
There was just enough magic to make me recommend this film - Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) navigates best when presenting the flashback scenes. He moves awkwardly through the annoying and speechy present-day courtroom scenes. The suspense of Maria’s escape from Nazi-occupied Vienna jolts the film to life in the middle, and there are a couple of touching performances, from Tatiana Maslany as the young Maria, and especially Allan Corduner as her father Gustav, whose anguished farewell is far and away the emotional high point.
Though Mirren is always enjoyable, the film seems to think that her mere presence as a wisecracking widow will be enough for us to forgive its lack of originality.

WOMAN IN GOLD is the remarkable true story of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt's famous painting 'Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I'. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle, which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.
