Daniel Radcliffe stars in one of the few horror films hitting cinemas at Halloween this year - "Horns". Already available on VOD services in the United States, the film is still taking a more traditional release path in other countries including the U.K. where Radcliffe has been doing press.
Speaking with Empire Online, Radcliffe's next project to hit cinemas is 20th Century Fox's new take on "Frankenstein" which stars Radcliffe as the servant Igor to James McAvoy's Dr. Victor Frankenstein. Frequent "Sherlock" episode diretor Paul McGuigan helms this take on the story which will be very different to the book.
In fact, Frankenstein's monster is not really a part of the action with Radcliffe saying:
"The creation of the monster isn't right until the end – you see their attempts at it. Although I'm not sure we're teeing ourselves up for four more movies or anything.
Instead, the movie »

Some of you might be asking: why do I care what Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter, has to say about Frankenstein? He, person who doesn't know, is playing Igor in 20th Century Fox's take on a prequel to Mary Shelly's novel that focuses on the relationship between James McAvoy's Victor Frankenstein and Igor, his assistant.
Empire talked to Radcliffe about the role:
The character maybe lost a little intellectual freight with Marty Feldman’s portrayal of him as a boggle-eyed lunatic in Mel Brooks’ hilarious Young Frankenstein (“It’s pronounced ‘I-gor’!”), so Radcliffe’s version will probably be a little closer to what Shelley intended.“There is that physicality,” he stressed of Igor’s famous hunchback, “but the story this time around is told through his eyes. He’s granted more of a story than he has been before. It’s an equal partnership where one of them is trying to be dominant, »
Photo: Marco VitturWith his quirky drama Horns just around the corner, Daniel Radcliffe stopped by to chat movie things with Empire. With his Seb Coe movie Gold currently in a holding pattern, the current Rad-slate is dominated by 20th Century Fox’s new take on Mary Shelley’s weird scientist, Victor Frankenstein. Radcliffe, who plays Igor (or Ygor), bills it as “a real adventure at its heart, a fun movie” while stressing that there’s brains to go with the brawn. “[It’s] very smart in terms of the ideas it’s discussing, [which is] a rare combination for a huge movie.”Igor, of course, is Frankenstein’s (James McAvoy) factotum.

It looks like Suicide Squad isn't the only comic book movie that Tom Hardy is up for. According to The Wrap, the British actor is also up for the role of the villain Apocalypse in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse!
At one point Hardy was rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but it seems like that ship has sailed, and he's not on it. One thing for sure is, it looks like he's going to be attached to another comic book project in the near future. This wouldn't be the first time either, as he also played Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
I think Hardy would be great in both Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. But if I had to choose to see him in one of those it would have to be as Apocalypse, because he would freakin' be awesome in that role! »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »
On Friday night the Odeon West End played host to director Ned Benson’s feature debut The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, bringing the director and star James McAvoy to the red carpet. The story follows the marriage between Conor Ludlow (McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Jessica Chastain) in the wake of a personal bereavement. As both deal with their loss in different ways, their relationship begins to crumble.A unique project, Benson chose to tell the story in the form of three feature-length films. His first two - Him and Her - gave time for the separate perspectives of the two main characters, while the third - Them - is an abridged blend of the others. Speaking to Empire, Benson explained the reasons behind his artistic choice. "The decision was based on storytelling," he stressed. "I wanted to create a movie about relationships and ultimately the decision was based on »
Shared cinematic universes are all the rage now; and even the monsters are getting in on the act. Universal Studios confirms what has been rumored for a year now. There will be a unified film universe for the iconic movie monsters and Dracula Untold is the first volley in the game.
History is repeating itself. Back in 1931, Dracula (Starring Bela Lugosi) became a monster hit (pun intended) for Universal Studios and ushered in a slate of successful monsters franchises—Frankenstein, the Wolfman, the Mummy, the Invisible Man and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. These monsters eventually segued into the first-ever shared cinematic universe. (Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman; the House of Frankenstein; the House of Dracula; and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein). Fast forward 83 years and once again, that Transylvanian blood-drinker is the first entrant in a shared monster-verse.
We’ve heard unofficially for months now that Universal Studios is »

It may have received only a screenplay award at Cannes, but Andrei Zvyagintsev’s stinging satirical drama “Leviathan” came out on top at the 58th BFI London Film Festival.
At a lavish awards dinner in Westminster’s Banqueting Hall, the Russian critical favorite was presented with the festival’s sixth annual Best Film prize by this year’s jury president, Oscar-winning producer Jeremy Thomas, who described the vote as a unanimous one. “Its grandeur and themes moved us all in the same way,” he said.
The London award adds fuel to the Sony Picture Classics acquisition’s Oscar campaign. Zvyagintsev’s politically contentious work was unexpectedly selected as Russia’s Best Foreign Language Film submission. Among the films it faces in the foreign Oscar race, incidentally, is last year’s London champ — Polish submission “Ida.”

Other winners include The Tribe, a documentary about Syria and Catch Me Daddy actress Sameena Jabeen Ahmed.
It saw off competition from the likes of Peter Strickland’s The Duke of Burgundy, François Ozon’s The New Girlfriend and Julius Avery’s Son of a Gun, starring Ewan McGregor (click here for full list).
Leviathan tells the tragic tale of conflict between an individual and a corrupt system in a small Russian town.
It marks the fourth feature from Zvyagintsev and is Russia’s submission for the Best Foreign-Language Oscar. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where many expected it to win the Palme d’Or, instead winning Best Screenplay.
It will be released in the UK by Curzon.
The award was announced at a glitzy ceremony held in London’s Banqueting Hall, Whitehall, and hosted »

With the number of superhero movies in the pipeline, speculation over who will play what hero and what villain won't be ending any time soon and things are no different today as The Wrap reports Tom Hardy is being sought to play "En Sabah Nur," which means "The First One" and is also the name for the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, a character first introduced in 1986's "X-Factor" comics. I went into greater detail as to who this Apocalypse guy is right here as he's the blue fella you saw during the X-Men: Days of Future Past end credit sequence. To put it simply, he's the world's first mutant. Bryan Singer will return to direct X-Men: Apocalypse for a May 27, 2016 release with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Jackman all expected to return.

He’s been linked to Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange and Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad in recent days, and now The Wrap is reporting that 20th Century Fox is also courting Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) for one of its own superhero projects, with the site claiming that the British actor is wanted for the role of En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse, in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
Last week, director Bryan Singer revealed that casting is underway on the follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, so you would expect the primary focus to be on finding an actor to portray the ancient mutant. However, if rumours are true, Hardy may have to make a decision between Apocalypse and Suicide Squad, given that they’re both due for release in 2016 (as is Doctor Strange, but he’s one of several thousand names linked to that particular role).
