Death and Nightingales
The BBC has revealed the first photos from its forthcoming three-part period drama adaptation of Eugene McCable’s “Death and Nightingales” starring Jamie Dornan (“Fifty Shades of Grey”), Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”) and Ann Skelly (“Red Rock”). BBC Two will air the series this Fall.

Allan Cubitt (“The Fall”) pens the project set in Ireland in 1885. It’s a world of spies, confessions and double dealings where neighbors observe each other and inform with the action set over a desperately tense 24-hour period and follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny. Tension soon tears both families and nations apart. [Source: Radio Times]

Rob Hayes (“Chewing Gum”) wrote the script dubbed a faithful adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about a pair of siblings kidnapped by a terrifying witch who lives in the surrounding woods. Filming begins this Fall in Europe. [Source: Collider

Doom Eternal
Nearly half an hour of new gameplay footage from “Doom: Eternal” was screened at QuakeCon this year and now publisher Bethesda has relessed that clip online via their official YouTube channel. The film itself has yet to set a release date but it’s almost certainly sometime in the first half of 2019.
