We're two episodes into the second series of BBC's amazing crime series The Fall (you lot in Ireland are ahead), and while the latest episode may have dropped some major WTF moments, new recruit Colin Morgan has promised the remainder of the season doesn't let up on the twists.

The Merlin star joins the new series in episode four, with the BBC releasing some teasing on set photos of Colin with leads Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan last week. He joins just as Stella Gibson's (Anderson) investigation into the Belfast strangler, Paul Spector (Dornan), reaches a feverish climax. SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU'RE NOT CAUGHT UP.

In episode two of series two we saw Spector not only offering a counseling session to one of his victims, Annie Brawley, but Gibson finally had her man within grasp as DNA evidence found on the shears he used to butcher Annie's brother, revealed Spector's identity. Oh and Spector's got Rose Stagg locked in the boot of his car.

So where does Colin's character fit into all of this? The actor has given an interview to BBC Northern Ireland ahead of his debut, and although he doesn't reveal too much, he does hint at some pretty explosive goings-on in the final four episodes of this season.

"I play DS Tom Anderson," Colin explains. "He comes into the second series of The Fall from episode four onwards. He becomes involved in the investigation in an unexpected, roundabout way. He's very much aware of what's going with the investigation in Northern Ireland, it's on TV, it's in the newspapers, it's everywhere. So I think for a young guy like him in the police service, it's a very desirable case for him to be on."

An "unexpected" way? Colin elaborates a bit on this later on in the interview, saying: "Having read the scripts from start to finish, one to six, I can tell you that it doesn't slow pace, it picks up, it gets more intense, the net feels like it's closing in. It feels like the investigation has upped its pace and it feels like everything is much more complicated, much more diverse and that Stella has taken steps that I think are highly intellectual and highly complex. We learn a lot more about everyone and everything and the conclusion, I think, is going to keep people pretty engaged."

What else can they possible throw at us? Is Colin the one who captures Spector? AND what does this tweet from a Fall fan account mean?

It can't be a coincidence that they're wearing the same jumper can it? Belfast has more than one store.

The Fall is back on BBC2 on Thursday at 9pm. Watch Colin's full interview with BBC Northern Ireland below:

Fans of Sherlock have gone wild for the new shots taken for a forthcoming Sherlock Christmas special, but not out of excitement but more sheer bewilderment. The shot sees stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman pose in period costume with Benedict right arm towards camera while the other one, wait, where is the other one? The image, which was posted online is missing Benedict's left arm, but where did it go?

We are praying to the high heavens that this is just a Photoshop nightmare and not a clue that for some reason Sherlock's arm really has been dismembered. We're going to take a stab in the dark and say we're guessing Sherlock's arm is still in tact, but who really knows?

There's still no explanation as to why our dream team are dressed in period costume, nor has any one revealed what's happened to Sherlock's arm. But what we do know is that Sherlock will be returning for a 2015 Christmas special, whch will then be followed by three more feature length episodes in 2016.

Of course, Twitter went berserk over Benedict's amputated arm as fans loaded th site with their quips and gags, and we're sure they'll just keep on coming as the mystery to Sherlock's missing arm wades on.

Producer Sue Vertue teased the show's return with the bizarre image of Sherlock and Dr. Watson, accompanying the picture with a caption which read: #221back #Sherlock #notkidding”. She then also posted an image of the top secret Sherlock special script, written by husband Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and revealed that there had been a read through earlier that day.

The Sherlock special will air next Christmas and is expected to begin filming in January. Since the third series ended earlier this year, fans have been left waiting on tenterhooks as it was revealed that the scariest villain of them all, Moriaty lives! DUH DUH DUH! Due to Cumberbatch and Freeman's jam packed schedules, we're going to be left waiting for another year before all is revealed. But they're back, whether it's with one arm or two, they're back.

After being dropped by Sony Pictures, it hasn't taken Universal Pictures long to pick up the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, less than a week in fact, and the film company has decided to cast Michael Fassbender as the late Apple co-founder.

The film will be directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours), however the script will be written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network). According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is expected to have a budget of more than $30 million. Seth Rogen is reportedly in talks to play Steve Wozniak.

Christian Bale was one of the first big names linked to the role of Jobs, but the actor turned down the role "after much deliberation and conflicted feelings."

Fassbender has tackled varying roles throughout his career, playing a sex addict in drama Shame, a superhero in X-Men and a robot in Prometheus. Academy Award-winning director Steve McQueen considers the 37-year-old to be one of the best "three or four actors" alive.

"There is no one like Michael out there right now," McQueen previously said. "And there hasn't been, for me, since Marlon Brando. There's a fragility and a femininity to him, but also a masculinity that can translate. You're not in awe of him. You're part of him. He pulls you in."

The new movie is based on Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs which was released in 2011.

Ever wondered what life was like for Peter Pan before his journey to Neverland? Well wonder no more, as the trailer for the upcoming Peter Pan prequel, Pan, has been unveiled, along with the movie's first four film posters.

The movie stars Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as young Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Levi Miller as Peter Pan. Amanda Seyfried also stars in the new production but, sadly, doesn't have her own movie poster - not yet, anyway!

Pan offers a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, following an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland, where he finds both fun and danger, and ultimately the key to his destiny.

But you won't only see Peter as you've never seen him before, Les Miserables star Jackman channels some serious Jack Sparrow vibes in the new film, donning an interesting beard, moustache combo and coiffed hair - not quite the heartthrob we're used to, anyway!

The movie's director Joe Wright (Atonement) said of Pan, "This isn't exactly the Neverland story you know."

The big-budget Warner Bros. film is set to hit cinemas on July 17, 2015. In the meantime check out the first trailer below, and is that a mermaid Cara Delevingne we spot swimming under water?

Angelina Jolie has admitted that she would love to see her latest film, which sees the actress work her magic behind the camera, sweep the board at next year's Oscars. The Hollywood starlet put it out there at the London premiere of the World War II epic: She wants an Oscar and she's not even shy about it.

The film, starring Skins star Jack O'Connell, follows Olympic athlete turned war hero Louis Zamperini who survived 47 days at sea after a plane crash before he was captured by the Japanese and imprisoned for two years. It's certainly a remarkable story and from what we can tell by the trailer it looks like a remarkable film. So can Ange add to her lonesome Oscar for Girl, Interrupted?

It would “mean a great deal to her,” she told Metro when asked about potential Oscar glory. The 39-year-old, who won her first and only Oscar for best supporting actress, has hinted that she may be putting her days in front of the screen behind her to focus more on directing. Surely a best director Oscar win would seal the deal?

She also says that she hopes more women will follow her lead and we'll see a surge in female directors. Hollywood is still dominated by male directors and the first female to win an Oscar for best director only just came in 2008 when Kathryn Bigelow made history with The Hurt Locker. “Hopefully, there will be many, many more, and I'm sure there will be,” she tells the paper. “There are a few other female directors I am close to and there is a nice camaraderie between us.”

We'll be able to see if Ange is Oscar-worthy when Unbroken opens in cinemas nationwide on Boxing Day. Watch the stunning trailer below...
