Jamie Campbell Bower: 'Bend It Like Beckham on stage is a different monster'

30 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jamie Campbell Bower made his first big impression when appearing in the movie adaptation of musical Sweeney Todd in 2007.

Eight years and several big Hollywood films later, he's finally making his West End debut in the upcoming musical version of Bend It Like Beckham as musician and football coach Joe.

Digital Spy chatted with the actor about nerves, football skills and swapping Hollywood for the West End.

Bend it Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

The original film has become a cult favourite. Were you a fan?

"Yeah, of course. For me, it was a point in time when I was growing up. I was either turning a teenager, or had just turned into a teenager, and obviously I was madly in love with Keira Knightley. One of the first movies that she did was a film called The Hole, and this [Bend It Like Beckham] came shortly after that, »

Juliet Stevenson: 'Bend It Like Beckham was screaming out to be made into a musical'

30 April 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Juliet Stevenson is as excited as anyone for the upcoming Bend It Like Beckham musical.

The Truly, Madly, Deeply actress played the mother of Jules (Keira Knightley) in the original 2002 film, which has been adapted for the stage by director Gurinder Chadha.

Stevenson told Digital Spy: "I'm really delighted because it's such a fantastic story, and I can see it lending itself very well to the stage.

"I often think, 'No, that's a bad idea, don't make a musical out of that movie', but Bend It Like Beckham is screaming out to be made into one."

She continued: "There's so much song and dance, and it's such a vibrant story. It's more than just a story, it's got a lot to say about what it is to be a British-Asian and the battle between the two competing cultures. [Chadha] has such a capacity to make that into something joyous and funny. »

Joe Dante Is ‘Burying The Ex’ In Directorial Return

28 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Joe Dante has to be one of our favourite underrated directors. The man brought Gremlins to the big screen as well as its sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch, a film I watched far too much as a young child. He’s also responsible for The Howling, The ‘Burbs, Innerspace and the cult television classic Eerie Indiana.

His last big screen outing was the ridiculously creepy kids film The Hole. Don’t confuse it with the Thora Birch, Keira Knightley teen thriller, Dante’s film saw a trio of kids unearth a mysterious hole in their new house. The hole had the ability to read people’s darkest fears and has some truly terrifying scenes. Seriously I don’t know how kids made it through that film!

Now just over five years later Dante is back with a deliciously dark romantic zombie comedy. The film stars Anton Yelchin as Max, »

Director Baltasar Kormakur Talks Everest and His Viking Movie Vikingur

27 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While at this year’s CinemaCon, I landed an exclusive interview with director Baltasar Kormákur. He was in Las Vegas to accept the award for International Filmmaker of the Year from CinemaCon and also to promote his upcoming Universal movie Everest. If you’re not familiar with the film, it’s based on a true story and it “documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.” Loaded with an all-star cast featuring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Worthington, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, Robin Wright, and Keira Knightley, Everest hits theaters September 18th and is one of my most anticipated films of the year after seeing the first footage. Kormákur and I sat down for an interview shortly after he won his award. He talked about where he’s at in post-production, »

Chris Pratt, 'Crimson Peak' and 8 other takeaways from Universal's CinemaCon sneaks

23 April 2015 7:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's been a fantastic 2015 so far for Universal Pictures.  "Fifty Shades of Grey" has earned $568 million worldwide and "Furious 7" has taken in $300 million domestic and $1.15 billion globally.  Universal was the last studio to present their slate to the world's theater owners and, as you can guess, they were pretty bullish on what's to come. Unlike some of their competitors, however, Universal joined Sony Pictures 20th Century Fox by actually making some news during their presentation.  The next "Fifty Shades" movies have titles and release dates and Vin Diesel himself appeared on hand to announce "Furious 8's" April 14, 2017 opening day. Other talent on hand included Seth MacFarlane ("Ted 2"), Amy Schumer ("Trainwreck"), Chris Pratt ("Jurassic World") and Dr. Dre and Ice Cube ("Straight Outta Compton").   Here are some quick takeaways from Universal's upcoming slate. "Everest" looks, um, epic Slight hint to Warner Bros. You might want to move "Black Mass"* off Sept. »

Alicia Vikander: Five Things to Know About the Ex Machina Star

22 April 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You're going to be seeing a lot of Alicia Vikander. That is, if you haven't already. Since making her Hollywood debut three years opposite Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina, the 26-year-old Swedish actress has made 11 movies, more than half of which will have been released in this year alone. In her latest, Ex Machina, Vikander plays an Artificial Intelligence female who befriends a young computer programmer (Domhnall Gleeson) after they're introduced by his mysterious CEO (Oscar Isaac). While most of Vikander's body appears to be a clear plastic shell in the movie, she had to wear a silver mesh body suit and skullcap. "It was very hot that summer," Vikander remembers. »

Keira Knightley is showing off her biggest bump yet! The first-time mom was spotted out and about wearing a trendy, all-black ensemble, but we couldn't help but notice her biggest accessory: her baby bump!

CinemaCon: First Everest, Sisters and London Has Fallen Posters

19 April 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Plenty of posters are being set up at CinemaCon right now as studios try to woo exhibitors, and Steve is on the floor snapping plenty of photos. The first Everest poster banks on the outstanding cast—Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, Keira Knightley, and Sam Worthington—along with the tagline, “Human Beings Are Not Meant to Survive at the Cruising Altitude of a 747.” I cannot argue with that statement. Everest opens September 18th. Here’s the official synopsis: Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.  Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival. »

Interview: Clive Standen talks Vikings Season 2

7 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We spoke to Clive Standen, Rollo on History’s Vikings, which returns on History with a second series.

Kk: Hi Clive, how are you doing today?

Cs: I’m doing really well, it’s really nice to be promoting the show in the UK.

How’s it been – how’s the reception of the show so far in the UK?

It’s been fantastic, I mean, it’s very strange for me, like, when we go to Comic Con in San Diego – I think it’s the 6th biggest watched show of the year in America right now – so we get get people dressed up as Vikings, and reciting old Norse back to us… it’s fantastic. But people still don’t know where to watch the show in the UK, so I get back here and people go “I’ve heard about Vikings but I don’t know where »

Domhnall Gleeson on 'Ex Machina' and Why 'Star Wars' Hasn't Been Overwhelming

7 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson (son of actor Brendan Gleeson) has been a dependable screen presence for over five years now by standing out in a number of projects that featured bigger box-office draws than himself. In "Frank" he stole scenes from a masked Michael Fassbender; in "Anna Karenina" he was a comic revelation opposite Keira Knightley; and in "About Time," he proved he could lead a romantic comedy opposite a vet of the genre, Rachel McAdams. 2015 could be the year that Gleeson finally becomes a household name thanks to his involvement in the most anticipated film of the year, J.J. Abrams entry into the "Star Wars" canon, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which opens this December. Before that monster in unleashed, however, Gleeson will appear in a number of other buzzed-about features sure to boost his profile. "The Revenant," also set for release later this year, will see him »

30 Ways Michael Fassbender Puts the Sex in Sexy

2 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Michael Fassbender is one fassinating actor. We first set our sights on the sexy Irishman when he bared it all as a sex addict in Shame. Then he spanked Keira Knightley as psychiatrist Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method, and he's done more than one striptease in magazine photo shoots over the last few years. Did we mention he speaks fluent German and is set to star in an upcoming Western movie? Besides his devilish grin and proclivity toward playing naughty bad boys, here are a few of the many reasons Michael Fassbender is on our sexy radar. »

The Riot Club: When Being Posh Is Not Enough

30 March 2015 7:38 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Those of us who lead hapless lives know how frightening getting up in the morning can be. Instead of rising and embracing the daylight with an ardent cuddle and a zealous "Yahoo!" we see grey clouds overhead and wonder aloud, "What now?" Another egg carton with broken shells? A second bedbug infestation within twelve months? Still no replies to our Christian Mingles ad even though we've noted we can recite the Book of Revelation by heart in Latin?

Ah, if only we were born into a family of elites. The ultra-rich. Aristocrats with an enviable gene pool.

But instead we're impoverished and pear-shaped with squinty eyes and in need of Proactiv+.

On top of these misfortunes, we really know the gods are against us if while fingering the remote, we accidentally come across Joshua Jackson in The Skulls (2000), and begin to watch it out of inertia. This incapacitating thriller was inspired by Yale's secretive society, »
