The Superman actor told the Daily Mail how his horse fell on him during his last day of filming in Ukraine.
"My horse had a habit, when I brought it to a stop, of lifting its front legs up," Stamp said. "On my last day, I brought it to a stop but slid off the back.
"I looked up and saw that this horse, which weighed half a ton, had lost its balance and was going to fall directly on me."
He continued: "I always imagined that my last thoughts would be somehow profound, but what went through my mind was, 'distinguished actor killed by horse's arse'.
"It fell on my chest and pelvis. If it had landed any further up, it would have killed me."

For some, the mere mention of the name Jar Jar Binks is enough to induce shudders. Before the release of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999, the character was hailed as a technical breakthrough: a photo-realistic CGI character performing alongside real, flesh-and-blood actors. But when the movie came out, critics and audiences reacted not with hushed wonderment at this CG miracle, but a mixture of irritation and befuddlement.
There is, however, a twist to this story: Jar Jar Binks could - just could - have been played by Michael Jackson. The revelation has a sound provenance, since it comes from Ahmed Best, the actor whose performance provided the basis for Binks' movements in the finished film.
In an interview with Vice, Best explains that he first got wind of »

Directed by Sean Baker
Director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway, Take Out) was reportedly inspired to make Tangerine, after observing the customers of a donut shop in Hollywood’s red-light district. Tangerine’s stars are a pair of first-time actresses, Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor. They play two trans sex workers – Sin-Dee, who’s just been released from a 28-day stint in prison for drug possession – and her best friend Alexandra who prepares for a gig singing at a local nightclub. The film follows the duo over the course of a day – opening on a donut shop which serves as one of the key locations the two transitioning male-to-female call girls hang out. It’s the morning of Christmas Eve at the sketchy intersection of Santa Monica and Highland in Los Angeles and Alexandra and Sin-Dee are sharing a red-and-green sprinkled donut. »

Transgender actress Laverne Cox in Orange Is The New Black, Jeffery Tambor in Transparent, and Eddie Redmayne in the upcoming The Danish Girl prove that transgender roles and how actors approach these have been the hot topic for a solid twenty years. The physical changes get audiences talking, with weight gain or loss and spending months dressed as the other gender becoming iconic to each trans role. Others choose a mental state of mind to embody the other sex. To celebrate the release of The New Girlfriend, in UK cinemas from 22nd May, we look at how career-defining transgender roles have been approached and become iconic.
Terence Stamp was initially reluctant to star in this role as transgender Bernadette. Ironic, considering that this film is the go-to for changing opinions of the Lgbt community and transgender roles on the silver screen. He did »

With Thomas Vinterberg’s retelling of Thomas Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd hitting theaters today, I thought it was a good excuse to look back at an earlier adaptation that spawned some memorable poster art.Made in 1967, John Schlesinger’s corseted rural love quadrangle was a far cry from the biting contemporary urban dramas like Billy Liar and Darling that had made his name. Schlesinger defended his decision to direct a big budget Victorian costume drama by saying “I wanted to get away from a contemporary subject. People are tiring of the flip side. Contemporary is dated,” but in ’67—the year so beautifully chronicled in Mark Harris’s Pictures at a Revolution as the year Old Hollywood ceded to the New—Far from the Madding Crowd, shot in 70mm and nearly 3 hours long, was inevitably overshadowed by the nowness of the likes of The Graduate and Bonnie and Clyde. »

It’s All About Love: Vinterberg Revamps Hardy’s Classic Romance
Inevitably, we would have seen some filmmaker tackle a revamp of Thomas Hardy’s classic 1874 novel Far From the Madding Crowd, so it’s mostly surprising to note that it wasn’t Michael Winterbottom, who has made several Hardy adaptations since the 1990s. Instead, Danish director Thomas Vinterberg takes the reins from director John Schlesinger, who previously held credit for a famous 1967 adaptation starring Julie Christie, with Terence Stamp, Peter Finch and Alan Bates as the trio of suitors (and let’s not forget to mention a modern reimagining of this novel, the comic strip serial Tamara Drewe, made into a film by Stephen Frears in 2010). Curiously, this is Vinterberg’s follow-up to his 2012 critically acclaimed title The Hunt, which won Mads Mikkelsen Best Actor at Cannes and received an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film, making »

Carey Mulligan proves that she can carry a movie as the incandescent and powerful Bathsheba in "The Hunt" director Thomas Vinterberg's gorgeous realization of the Thomas Hardy classic "Far from the Madding Crowd." Julie Christie played the role at the height of her powers in John Schlesinger's stormy 1967 romance. Casting is everything in this movie. Rising Belgian star Matthias Schoenaerts ("Rust and Bone") shares real chemistry with Mulligan as the stalwart and loving salt of the earth once played by Alan Bates. We're rooting for him, while Michael Sheen ("Masters of Sex") is the more mature hapless gentleman neighbor who proposes marriage (Peter Finch). The weakest link is young Tom Sturridge ("On the Road") as the rakish sergeant (Terence Stamp) who sweeps Bathsheba off her feet, which is hard to believe. The movie already opened in Vinterberg's native Denmark and some other territories, hence the early trade reviews below. »

It made its world premiere at the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) last fall, and is now headed to San Francisco for the San Francisco International Film Festival, which kicks off in 3 days (April 23). Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck's latest work, titled "Murder in Pacot," is a feature film loosely inspired by Italian director, Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1968 drama/mystery "Teorema," which starred Terence Stamp as a mysterious stranger who injects himself into the home of a wealthy Italian family, and seduces everyone in it, including the maid, which leads to each of them reaching some unique »

From director Tim Burton, Big Eyes tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic frauds in history. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, painter Walter Keane (Waltz) had reached success beyond belief, revolutionizing the commercialization of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes.

20th Century Fox is developing a reboot of the 1988 sci-fi movie Alien Nation, with Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway coming aboard to write the screenplay. The project doesn't have a producer on board at this stage. The studio is envisioning a re-imagining of the original movie, with the hopes of starting a franchise similar to their rebooted Planet of the Apes movies.
The original Alien Nation was set in a future where humans and an alien race were forced to co-exist with each other, as the humans keep the alien species segregated from the general population with very little rights. The plot followed the first ever alien police officer (Mandy Patinkin) on Earth, who is paired up with a racially-biased cop (James Caan). Although they have their differences, a case comes up that causes them to form a mutual respect for one another. The original movie spawned »
'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »
