Director Tim Burton has taken to Facebook to reveal the official logo for his new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children…
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is an unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale centers on 16-year-old Jacob (portrayed by Asa Butterfield), who follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is set for release on March 4th 2016, with a cast that includes Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.

The actor on why SatC’s clones have all flopped, why being bisexual shouldn’t be a big deal for a performer – and why Maggie Gyllenhaal was right to speak out about ageism in the film industry
Hi Cynthia! Your new film, Ruth and Alex, makes quite a few references to how much Brooklyn has changed over the years. Are you a fan of artisanal cheese?
Brooklyn has really become an incredible mecca and we have a lot of friends who live there so we are often out there on the weekends going to wonderful restaurants and festivals and having fun with our little ones in Dumbo [a neighbourhood in Brooklyn]. It’s complicated. Gentrification is such a big issue.

Germany’s Burhan Qurbani wins best director prize for We Are Strong. We Are Young.
Gábor Reisz’s slacker comedy For Some Inexplicable Reason won the Grand Prix winner at the 6th edition of the Voices festival for young European cinema in the Russian provincial town of Vologda on Sunday evening (July 5).
Reisz’s debut had its world premiere in the East of the West competition at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival last year and is handled internationally by Alpha Violet.
The award was the film’s ninth trophy after prizes at festivals in Turin and Sofia, among others.
Speaking to ScreenDaily in Vologda, Reisz said that his film’s lead actor - fellow directing student Áron Ferenczik - had been overhelmed by the attention given to him for his acting turn as the slacker Áron, but is now preparing to direct a TV movie.
Reisz, meanwhile, is participating in the Cinéfondation residency in Paris and will »

Munich — Rupert Everett was lauded at the Munich Film Festival on Wednesday, when he received the CineMerit Award for outstanding contribution to cinema.
Glenn O’Brien, a former member of Andy Warhol’s Factory and the first editor-in-chief of Interview magazine, which featured Everett on its cover when he was a teenager, acted as laudator. O’Brien said: “(Everett) redefined what it is to be a leading man. Part of that is he proved that you don’t need to be straight to be emotionally unavailable, and that it is important to do the roles that formulate your idea of yourself and do them in your own way.”
After he received his award, Everett said: “I feel terribly proud to be here tonight, but also I feel very unworthy, because even though in some ways one deserves an award just for surviving 35 years in show business, I really don’t »

The latest retail reality show is far too dependent on the phoney drama that often afflicts the genre – and fails to make use of its biggest asset, former Dragon’s Den inhabitant, Hilary Devey
‘I wish everyone on the show was really nice and relatable, and that each hour-long episode was all about the task” is what nobody who watches The Apprentice has ever thought or said. Still, in the spirit of plucky entrepreneurship, that hasn’t stopped the makers of Running the Shop (Channel 4), who have taken the least interesting aspects of The Apprentice, added a twist on Undercover Boss by letting the employees take over the shop, and topped it off with one of the old Dragons from Dragons’ Den, who attempts to do a Mary Queen of Shops on the whole messy concoction.
Hilary Devey, magnificent of face and shoulder pads, kicks off the series with Taskers, »

Inspector Gadget's finest hours really lie in the cartoon series of the 1980s. The subsequent late 1990s live action movie cast Matthew Broderick and Rupert Everett, and whilst the film was a decent box office hit, the movie wasn't much cop. At all. A direct to DVD sequel then followed a few years later, which cast French Stewart in the lead role, before Disney seemed to (thankfully) lose interest.
Until now, at least. Dan Lin, one of the producers of The Lego Movie, is bringing Inspector Gadget back to the big screen, and Disney is backing the project. It'll be a live action film again, although at this stage we don't know who is writing it, who is directing it, or who is set to play Inspector Gadget. Er, so we've »

McCoy is pregnant and so is currently unable to reprise her role of Milady on the BBC drama.
However, a BBC spokesperson has confirmed to Digital Spy that the actress is in talks to return to the show at a later date.
"We are delighted for Maimie and wish her well through her pregnancy," they said. "We very much hope she may come back as Milady in the latter half of series 3 and are in discussions with her to that effect."
It is currently unclear how many episodes McCoy will miss as a result of her pregnancy.
It is Ve Day and the two young princesses Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) and Margaret (Bel Powley) are "completely cheesed" at being locked away in a "ghastly mausoleum" (that is to say, Buckingham Palace) when the rest of Britain is celebrating. They somehow persuade daddy and mummy (a stuttering Rupert Everett as George VI about to give his king's speech and a clucking Emily Watson as Queen Elizabeth) to allow them out to celebrate "incognito" with the rest of the London crowds. »

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.
The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.
As one of cinema’s most prominent stars, Blanchett, whose recent roles include the evil stepmother in “Cinderella, »

It is 1945 and King George VI (Rupert Everett) and his wife (Emily Watson), the future Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, are deciding whether to let their teenage daughters go out to celebrate Ve Day. Princess Margaret, aged 14 (Bel Powley), announces that she is "completely cheesed" at being stuck in Buckingham Palace. It is her sister, Princess Elizabeth, aged 19, the future Queen of England (played regally by Sarah Gadon), who finally gets their permission ("Orf you go!"). »

Today marks the anniversary of Ve Day, May 8 1945, when the forces of good defeated Nazi tyranny and the British Army helped teach Hitler a lesson for pointing those giant arrows at us in Dad’s Army. Seventy years ago even Princess Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) was out on the tiles, doing whatever the royal equivalent of selfies was (one-sies?) and cutting loose with her future subjects for the one and only time. At least, that’s the premise for A Royal Night Out. Liberties have been taken with some of the facts, but, as this new featurette shows, real-life events served as inspiration for this alt-fairy tale. brightcove.createExperiences();On princess duties alongside Maps To The Stars actress Gadon is Bel Powley as the flighty, effervescent Margaret. The pair are given a night's pass by King George (Rupert Everett) and the future Queen Mother (Emily Watson), on condition that they’re »
Her Majesty the Queen may very well be amused by A Royal Night Out, only because it deviates so far from what might plausibly have happened on Ve night, 1945, when she and Princess Margaret celebrated the end of the war in Europe among the commoners on the streets of London. Director Julian Jarrold makes no bones about the fact-less, fancy-freeness of it all, turning a royal anecdote into a screwball comedy of sorts, but where's the punchline?
Up-and-coming Canadian actress Sarah Gadon is a dead ringer for the future monarch "Lilibet" and she imbues her with the requisite youthful whimsy as she yearns to be among the people on this most special night - before the burden of having to rule over them. But Jarrold (Kinky Boots, »
“Why have a ballroom with no balls?” trilled Princess Anna in Disney’s 2013 smash “Frozen,” voicing the social (and perhaps sexual) yearnings of any number of repressed, restless princesses in the fairy-tale universe — as well as, if the delightful “A Royal Night Out” is to be believed, the young Queen Elizabeth II herself. Imagining the alternately raucous and romantic exploits of the future English monarch and her sister Margaret as they are let loose upon London for one wild night of Victory in Europe celebrations, Julian Jarrold’s brightly performed exercise in speculative history scores as a frothier, more feminine bookend to “The King’s Speech” — though it’s no less engaging or accomplished. With public interest in British princessdom at a convenient high due to a certain new arrival, this glossy Lionsgate release (less coincidentally timed to capitalize on Ve Day’s 70th anniversary) should ride a dual wave of topicality to royal B. »
