But fans fearful that its return, complete with Hollywood star Rosamund Pike voicing Lady Penelope, will trample all over their childhood memories can rest easy.

Last year, Gone Girl became far and away director David Fincher.s biggest box office hit. Stars Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck garnered rave reviews for their portrayal of the Dunne.s, the most dysfunctional couple you.ll ever hope to meet, but the male lead, Nick, was almost played by Jon Hamm. The Mad Men star was up for the part, but contract issues prevented him from taking it, and he.s still a little pissed. David Fincher.s pulpy adaptation of Gillian Flynn.s best-selling novel went on to gross north of $368 million worldwide and score a Best Actress Oscar nomination for Pike.

Chastain, who plays Matthew McConaughey’s daughter in the film, was on hand earlier in the evening to present Nolan with the Empire Inspiration honour, which also earned the director of Inception and the Dark Knight Trilogy a standing ovation.
Nolan was back on stage shortly after to accept the best director award.

Interstellar, Imitation Game among major winners at Empire Awards 2015
Nolan also won Best Director for the sci-fi drama.
Ralph Fiennes was honoured at the annual ceremony with a "legend" award presented by Schindler's List co-star Liam Neeson. Rosamund Pike was named Best Actress for her Oscar-nominated role in Gone Girl, but was sadly absent.
She played two very diverse roles last year in Oculus and Guardians Of The Galaxy. Now genre favourite Karen Gillan’s movie career has received a major boost as she took Best Female Newcomer at the Jameson Empire Awards.
The prestigious honour saw her sharing the bill with Andy Serkis (Best Actor), Rosamund Pike (Best Actress) and Christopher Nolan (Best Director/Empire Inspiration). She fought off strong competition from the likes of Essie Davis (The Babadook) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle). Taron Egerton picked up Best Male Newcomer for Kingsman: The Secret Service. The ceremony was held last night at the Grosvenor House Ballroom in London.
Other guests included current Doctor Who Peter Capaldi. Gillan notably had her own stint in the Tardis, and acted with Capaldi during the David Tennant era before they were both cast in the key roles of Amy Pond and The Doctor.

Ridge said that while it would appeal to a modern audience, many of the original elements would be retained.
He said: "We had no intention of messing with what already worked.
"It's a classic for a reason - it's a show that has a lot of cultural relevance for a lot of people, and so the decisions and changes we have made were not entered into lightly.
"Equally though, the series needs to appeal to a new modern audience, so whilst the iconic characters… music and story elements are largely retained, they are realised with production values that deliver an even greater dynamic and emotional experience for today's audience."
Ridge also spoke about some of the new vehicles that would appear on the show, before saying that the characters' heroism held the key to its appeal. »

Gillian Flynn is the Gone Girl novelist who later adapted her own work for David Fincher’s 2014 feature, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. That twisted debauched tale put its creator in the spotlight, quite rightly so, and she’s now landed another adaptation deal. For her next effort, Flynn will collaborate with Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave, Shame) on his upcoming feature Widows.
The movie is based on a UK series than ran for three seasons up until 1995 and revolved around the hijinks of three recent widows. Written by Prime Suspect scribe Linda Laplante, it traced the dalliances of three widows who club together to finish a job after their husbands are killed trying to pull off a heist. Trust us, it’s as brilliant as it sounds, largely thanks to La Plante’s scripting and the cast of characters.

Source: Getty/Lester Cohen Kardashian-Jenner insiders have reportedly revealed what compelled Rob Kardashian to make a confusing statement about his sister Kim on Sunday. In one of just two pictures remaining on his official profile, Rob seemingly wrote, "This is my sister kim , the b*tch from Gone Girl." The image shows Rosamund Pike covered in blood while portraying Amy Dunne in Gone Girl. Last year's hit psychological thriller, which is based on the book of the same name, tells the story of an alarming murder mystery surrounding Amy and husband Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck). According to Us Weekly, a source close to the family said Rob made the comparison because he's "in a dark place" as his longtime struggles with depression and weight continue. "His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored," a second source reportedly said, adding that he took to social »

Rob Kardashian shocked everyone when he compared his famous sister Kim Kardashian to Rosamund Pike’s murderous sociopath character in Gone Girl on Instagram last week, but sources close to the E! family reveal exclusively to Us Weekly that the Arthur George creator lashed out at Kim because he feels she’s two-faced. “Rob is in a dark place,” an insider explains to Us of the bizarre Instagram post, which read, “This is my sister kim, the bitch from Gone Girl,” alongside a blood-spattered image of the actress. “Kim told [...] »
'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. »
