Comic Book Review – Beast Wagon Finale

Kieran Fisher reviews Beast Wagon Finale…

The double-sized finale of the critically acclaimed and British Comic Award nominated series by Owen Michael Johnson, John Pearson & Colin Bell goes on sale on the 1st April 2017. Make sure you mark the date as you don’t want to miss this.

It’s sad to see Beast Wagon come to an end. Since arriving on the scene in 2015, the series established itself as essential reading from the get go due to its unequalled originality and thought-provoking social commentary. Disturbing, surreal, bizarre and wickedly intelligent, Beast Wagon is a series that defies classification, and that’s what makes it so damn wonderful. Owen Michael Johnson (writer), John Pearson (artist), and Colin Bell (letters) might be on an island unto themselves when it comes to ideas and vision, but given the quality of their hallucinogenic opus, they’re well on their way to being future

Naomi Campbell Shares Sweet Memories of Filming George Michael’s Iconic ‘Freedom ’90’ Video

Naomi Campbell Shares Sweet Memories of Filming George Michael’s Iconic ‘Freedom ’90’ Video
George Michael was found dead nine days ago, and his friend Naomi Campbell is still feeling the loss.

“I’m very sad that he’s not here,” the 46-year-old model revealed while making an appearance on The View Wednesday. “Gone too soon.”

Michael and Campbell had a longstanding friendship — stemming from when he cast her in the iconic video for his 1990 song “Freedom ’90” alongside Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, and Tatjana Patitz.

The five women had all just appeared on the January 1990 cover of the British Vogue magazine in a black-and-white shot by Peter Lindbergh. Michael saw the cover

Comic Book Review – Beast Wagon #4

Kieran Fisher reviews Beast Wagon #4…

Chapter Four – Gluttire.

Capacities are reached. Captivities are breached.

The penultimate issue of the critically acclaimed British Comic Award nominated series by Owen Michael Johnson & John Pearson, with letters by Colin Bell

Beast Wagon is easily the strangest comic book series of the year so far. It’s also one of the most intelligent, original, captivating and brilliant. With recent titles such as Wild’s End and The Mighty Zodiac, anthropomorphic stories have produced brilliance over the past year or so; but nothing this is a different beast entirely, and it’s unlike anything else going at the minute in any medium of entertainment and storytelling.

Describing what happens in Beast Wagon would be doing you a disservice as a reader. The series just continues to get stranger; yet in lieu with its fever dream-inducing qualities, there’s a lot to be said about human nature,

Comic Book Review – Beast Wagon #3

Kieran Fisher reviews Beast Wagon #3…

‘An intervention is staged. A memory resurfaces. Stralti tells a joke. Patrick takes a trip. An abundance of anaesthetics and prosthetics. Things get weird.’

In the medium of comic books, originality is commonplace. Every week there are brand new titles released that manage to stand out from the rest of the pack and establish their own identity. However, then you get something like Beast Wagon, a work operating on a plane so far leftfield from its peers that it’s impossible to compare it to anything; the hallucinogenic and surreal qualities are more akin to a fever dream than a comic book experience. As the series keeps progressing, it becomes even more intriguing and impressive, as weirdness intensifies, hilarity ensues and a menacing darkness permeates in every panel at all times.

Having been nominated for an award at the British Comic Awards last year, Beast

Latest Legend Trailer Sees Tom Hardy Rule Over London As The Infamous Kray Twins

Long before Ronald and Reginald Kray were sentenced to prison in 1969, the hardboiled siblings ruled over London’s infamous West End, were they operated a water-tight crime ring out from a high-end club. It was during this time that the Kray twins were feared by all, and held a marked influence over the city’s criminal underbelly. Documented in John Pearson’s acclaimed novel The Progression Of Violence, it proved to be a meteoric rise to infamy followed by the inevitable fall when the pair were caught at the tail-end of the decade.

But for Brian Helgeland’s upcoming crime drama, Legend, Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy will play both brothers while they were operating on the top of the proverbial food chain.

In preparation for the dual role, the esteemed actor would drop in and out of each character, portraying Ronnie one day before transitioning into Reggie the next.

Watch Tom Hardy Become Legend In New Trailer For Brian Helgeland’s Dual Drama

George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road threw up an intriguing curveball last month when it essentially relegated Tom Hardy’s protagonist to be a sidekick in his own movie, shifting the focus instead to Charlize Theron’s no-nonsense Imperator Furiosa. For Hardy’s next outing, though, the esteemed British actor is poised to steal the show by playing both Ron and Reggie Kray for Brian Helgeland’s upcoming crime drama, Legend.

Following the first teaser released a few months back, Universal Pictures has lifted the curtain on the domestic trailer for the film, showcasing some of the offbeat comedy and the ways in which Hardy experiments with the dual protagonist set-up. Heck, there are times when the two brothers even square up to one another – sibling rivalry and all that – and Helgeland touched upon the filming process behind these scenes in a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies.

Writer/director Brian Helgeland follows up "42" with British organized crime thriller "Legend," inspired by John Pearson’s book "Profession of Violence." Hardy plays the two notorious Kray brothers opposite Aussie actress Emily Browning and English actor Christopher Eccleston (wonderful as a fanatical preacher on HBO's "The Leftovers"). Helgeland won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar in 1998 for his wickedly clever James Ellroy noir "La Confidential," directed by Curtis Hanson. He was nominated in 2005 for penning Clint Eastwood's crime melodrama "Mystic River." "Legend" opens in the UK on September 11, suggesting an awards bid, but no Us release date has been set.

First Teaser For Tom Hardy’s Crime Drama Legend Spells Double Trouble

Tom Hardy is Kray Kray – literally. For Brian Helgeland’s upcoming crime drama Legend, the Mad Max: Fury Road star will play twins Ronald and Reginald Kray, two illustrious London mobsters who ruled the underbelly of 60s London from the top-down.

Based on John Pearson’s acclaimed novel The Progression Of Violence, the film will chart the rise and fall of the sharp-suited pair, who operated out of their nightclub in the city’s West End, gaining access to the capital’s richest denizens and plush hotel rooms. From their seedy ivory tower, the Kray twins were able to pull the strings on their own tight-knit gang of criminals. Known as The Firm, the crooks were essentially employed to carry out the siblings’ dirty work, be it arson, theft or out-and-out murder. Eventually, Ronald and Reginald Kray were sentenced to prison in 1969.

Given that Helgeland has dabbled in the historical

In This Legend Teaser, Check Tom Hardy... And Tom Hardy!

Several films have already been made about the Kray brothers, two notorious career criminals who ran a veritable gangster empire in London. This September we'll get another adaptation of their story: Legend, written and directed by Brian Helgeland, and starring Tom Hardy as both of the infamous twins. The film will cover the rise of Ronald and Reginald Kray during the fifties and sixties, and is an adaptation of the book The Progression Of Violence by John Pearson. Helgeland is rightfully famous for writing the script for L.A. Confidential, and directing A Knight's Tale (and at least one-and-a-half version of Payback). With him and Tom Hardy attached to this material, there sure are enough reasons to get excited. Today a teaser trailer landed, and it...

Watch: Tom Hardy As Ronnie & Reggie Kray in ‘Legend’ Teaser

Tom Hardy has been ratcheting up his roster of onscreen hard men to eleven recently, with a turn opposite the late James Gandolfini in The Drop and of course the small matter of Mad Max: Fury Road about to roar into cinemas. But there is a forthcoming role (or rather roles) that’s going to be causing more of a stir than most.

In Legend, you get not one Tom but two, as he steps into the dual shoes of characters some might argue he was born to play – notorious Sixties gangster siblings Ronnie and Reggie Kray. StudioCanal have given us an idea of what to expect with this gripping teaser trailer:

See Tom Hardy Play Twins in First Image from 'Legend'

  • Fandango
Tom Hardy is no stranger to playing outlaws (Bronson and Lawless, to name only two), but his latest crime movie takes things to the next level by giving Hardy two different roles to play at the same time.  In Legend, Hardy plays Ron and Reggie Kray, twin brothers who ran London's criminal underground in the 1960s. And if that doesn't sound enticing enough, you should know that it's the newest movie from L.A. Confidential and Man on Fire screenwriter Brian Helgeland. Joining Hardy in the film are Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, Tara Fitzgerald and Taron Egerton. And if you'd like to get a jump on the movie (which doesn't have a release date), you could read John Pearson's The Profession of Violence, the book upon which this is based....
