While Bong Joon-Ho has mentioned going back to smaller budgeted movies after "Snowpiercer," that doesn't mean he's shunning star power. His forthcoming, cross-continental monster movie "Okja" is gearing up with Tilda Swinton already revealing she has a role. And it looks like she'll be surrounded with a great ensemble, just as she was on "Snowpiercer."

Lionsgate U.K.’s increasing focus on investing in British movies to fill a major part of its distribution slate, alongside third-party acquisitions and titles from Lionsgate and Summit in the U.S., makes commercial sense, says Nick Manzi, head of production and acquisitions at Lionsgate U.K.
“There is an audience in this country for British films,” he says. “Every country wants to see stories about themselves, and we are lucky because we share the same language as America, so these films can travel — if you get them right.”
The aim is to give a wide release to the majority of its movies. “We look for stories that resonate with a broad audience,” he says. But Manzi warns that the distribution market has changed. “We are finding that there’s no in-between — there’s no middle ground. Films either work or they don’t.”

You may not have heard much about Norm of the North yet, but the animated adventure about a polar bear who heads to New York City may turn out to be a surprise hit. It has a great voice cast, including Rob Schneider, Heather Graham, and has the potential to add miles of fun with Ken Jeong, Colm Meaney and Bill Nighy.
It’s also an interesting story, or it could be anyway, which centers on Norm’s effort to keep a developer from building in the Arctic. Of course, that’s the sort of thing that could go heavy on the preachiness, and it’s always tough to guess the outcome of animated features that A) don’t include characters we already know, and B) aren’t Disney/Pixar, but this is a cast that can spin a lot of charm into a voice role, and don’t turn »

Melisandre, otherwise known as “The Red Woman” or “The Red Witch” (and several other names by Shireen Baratheon fans that I won’t mention) is one of the most loathed characters on Game of Thrones, but lately fans have had no choice but to put their faith in her as everyone’s favourite, as Jon Snow’s fate lies in her evil little hands.
Back to reality though, Carice van Houten, the actress behind Melisandre, couldn’t be any more likeable. This sexy Dutch actress who’s pushing 40 (unbelievable, right?) is known for a string of roles including Valkyrie, Black Book and Repo Men and has played alongside big shots like Bill Nighy, Jude Law, Eddie Redmayne and Tom Cruise.
Want to know a little more about this little vixen from the Netherlands? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Empire's latest issue isn't all about Star Wars, and to prove it, here's an image from a long time ago but closer to home. We've had a teaser trailer showing them in action, and now here's a closer look at a World War II-era Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon and company standing to attention in their Dad's Army fatigues. Old England isn't done with these boys on Home Guard.Left to right in this identity parade of misfits, triers and high-street heroes are Jones' blustering bank manager Captain Mainwaring; Nighy's vague Sergeant Wilson; Tom Courtenay not panicking (despite the position of Mainwaring's cane) as the Sudan, Boer and Western Front veteran Lance-Corporal "Mad Bomber" Jones; Bill Paterson as dour Scottish undertaker Private Frazer; Gambon controlling his bladder as the doddery Private Godfrey; Blake Harrison as stupid boy Private Pike; and Daniel Mays as the spivvy Private Walker.Directed by »
There's already a Dad's Army movie remake on the horizon, and now there's going to be a drama based around its origins.
The rest of the Dad's Army actors will be played by John Sessions (as Arthur Lowe), Julian Sands (as John Le Mesurier), Mark Heap (as Clive Dunn), Kevin Bishop (as James Beck), Michael Cochrane (as Arnold Ridley) and Ralph Riach (as John Laurie).
Big-screen transfers for much-loved television sitcoms tend to follow something of a hit and miss pattern: for every Inbetweeners Movie there’s a League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse, and for every Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa there’s a Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie. And so it is with trepidation that we peer tentatively at the debut trailer for Dad’s Army, the second attempt to translate Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s adored 1970s show for the cinema (following the 1971 UK box office smash), in the potentially vain hope that it will enhance, rather than ruin fond memories of the original.
