It’s hard to do NOT laugh. What is this!!

We have our fun.

Meet Sherlock's latest Big Bad: Charles Augustus Magnussen, played by Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen. (And yes, his brother plays Hannibal on Hannibal.) Quoth Steven Moffat:

“I wanted him not to be British, and we were looking at various film stars. But Sue (Vertue), who’s my wife and and the producer, kept going on and on about this guy Lars, saying, ‘He’s really cool, he’s going to be very big, his brother’s already big, and he’s been in these cool Danish shows which have become so big over here anyway.’ He couldn’t come to an audition so he self-taped some scenes on video for us. And he was just so stunning I didn’t get to the end of the tape. I just picked up the phone and said, ‘We absolutely have to have him.’ At which point [the character] became Danish.”

Thought the cover was mindblowing? Well, how about a whole gallery of brand-new, exclusive Cumberbatch (and Freeman) photos?


There is a Sherlock season 3 prequel minisode. We repeat: A Sherlock season 3 prequel minisode.

What are you waiting for?!

New Sherlock trailer just rubs in how much sooner new episodes premiere in the U.K. than in the U.S. — but at least we’ve got Watson’s kicky mustache as comfort.

This gigantic tapestry from The Desolation of Smaug is super awesome — and we’ve got a nifty magnifying tool that’ll help you spot every single detail.

New Sherlock teaser trailer.

Need we say more?


I vow right here and now to buy EVERY one of my followers a copy of Entertainment Weekly if they put Benedict Cumberbatch (and maybe bonus Martin Freeman) on the cover when Sherlock finally comes out. 

That is how much I want a Sherlock Entertainment Weekly cover. I WANT IT A LOT!

Duly noted.

This week in EW: We take a deep dive into into The Hobbit, exploring the film’s long, difficult road to the big screen and the critical, sometimes controversial creative decisions director Peter Jackson has made along the way. Precioussssss.
