Dublin Murders: 5 Things to Know About Starz's New Dark Crime Thriller

Throughout production on Starz’s Dublin Murders, one of its stars says, you could never quite tell when winter might be coming.

The crime thriller, which premieres Sunday (8/7c), shot many of its outdoor scenes in the woods of Belfast, where Game of Thrones filmed. And even though the HBO fantasy series wrapped a while back, “They had walking tours,” Killian Scott tells TVLine, laughing. “And it’s like, ‘Where are the bodies?!,’ and then, ‘Cut, we’ve got Hodor in the background.’ And you look over, and there’s a dude in the full Hodor costume.”

There's a Reason Insecure's New Heartthrob Nathan Looks So Familiar
Insecure fans let out an audible gasp when "Nathan with the face!" entered Issa and Molly's "party Lyft" during the season three premiere. Maybe it's his striking eyes or his zero-bullsh*t attitude with Issa's other passenger, but Nathan's character immediately stole our hearts. *Pauses TV, squints eyes, leans in.* Yeah, we've definitely seen him before, and we could recognize that smile a mile away.

Actor Kendrick Sampson, aka "Lyft Bae," proves to be a total sweetheart on the HBO premiere, but he's actually been winning us over on the small screen since his role as Woodchuck on Greek in 2008. Sampson also starred as Jesse on The Vampire Diaries, Dean Iverson on Fox's Gracepoint, Caleb Hapstall on How to Get Away With Murder, Robbie (with a sexy British accent) on White Famous, Nate on Relationship Status, and, of course, Dominic on The Flash. He's also had smaller roles on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,

19 TV Reboots That Should Have Been Booted (Photos)

19 TV Reboots That Should Have Been Booted (Photos)
With reboots of “Charmed” and “Magnum Pi” on the way, TheWrap looks at TV revivals that never should’ve happened

“Charlie’s Angels”

“Charlie’s Angels” perfectly captured the goofiness of the ’70s, but it felt painfully out of date in 2011. Critics and audiences agreed: It was canceled after three episodes.

Ironside

Blair Underwood has done some memorable TV work, starting with his career-making role on “L.A. Law.” But his 2013 take on the Raymond Burr crime drama was yanked from NBC’s air even faster than you can say “Lax” or “The Event.”

The Bionic Woman

A 2007 take on the “Six Million Dollar Man” spinoff, this NBC show’s original sin was casting “Battlestar Galactica” ass-kicker Katee Sackhoff as the recurring villain rather than the lead.

Knight Rider

Like so much ’80s television, the original “Knight Rider” is over-celebrated. But NBC’s 2008 version lacked even the original’s dumb charms — and David Hasselhoff.

The Grudge Reboot Release Date and Trailer

Joseph Baxter Dec 10, 2019

Andrea Riseborough stars in a new Hollywood reboot of The Grudge, with Nicolas Pesce as writer and director.

The Grudge successfully struck when the Japanese horror genre iron was – appropriate to its ghostly threats – white-hot in the wake of the American remake of The Ring, this time starring a genre favorite in TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sarah Michelle Gellar. The 2004 film, which saw director Takashi Shimizu remake his 2002 Japanese horror flick, Ju-on: The Grudge, yielded two sequels, which arrived successively in 2006 and 2009.

Now, a reboot movie of The Grudge is coming from Ghost House Pictures from director Nicolas Pesce.

The Grudge Reboot Trailer

A new Red Band trailer for The Grudge reboot has arrived (via IGN), showcasing Lin Shaye in a creepy performance opposite star Andrea Riseborough, that, even based on what we see here, stands out as a nightmarish offering in its own right.
