Harry Potter star expresses incomprehension at continued inequality and berates himself for naivete in assuming it was no longer an issue
Daniel Radcliffe has spoken of his shock and outrage at the lack of parity between the pay packets of male and female stars in Hollywood.
“It is nuts to me,” he told the Australian Daily Telegraph, saying that he was thankful the debate had been reawakened last year, “because I had just fucking naively thought this was not an issue any more. Because how can this still be happening?”

Finally, another season of Game of Thrones is upon us! It’s felt like a Game of Thrones Summer since the last episode of season five aired. To prepare for the show’s sixth season debut this weekend, I’m breaking down my six hopes (theories) for Game of Thrones. Come inside to check them out and share yours as well!
Jon Snow Resurrected
Let’s go ahead and start with the item everyone, and their mom, wants a quick resolution to: the resurrection of Jon Snow. Last season ended with a cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers. Is Jon Snow really dead? Fans from both the books and the show created theories about what happened; with some even claiming to see a purple light in his eyes, indicating a supernatural aspect to him. Personally, I checked about 12 times and there’s no purple light...Turn off the black light behind you. »

James Watkins burst onto the filmmaking scene in 2008, with his Michael Fassbender-starring thriller Eden Lake. He followed this with more scariness in 2012, helming the big screen version of The Woman In Black with Daniel Radcliffe at its heart.
His latest movie is Bastille Day,a pacey action flick that casts Idris Elba as a CIA agent and Richard Madden as a morally murky pickpocket who winds up at the centre of a terrorist attack in Paris. The two are thrust together on a quest to stop the next strike, with plenty of barbed banter and thrilling chases cropping up as they attempt to do so.
Shortly after seeing the film, I shared 15 minutes with Mr Watkins in a posh London hotel room. He was a lovely chap, as »
It's the small decisions along the way that shape major successes - and Harry Potter had lots of potential turning points...
Spanning a series of books, films, merchandising prospects, an amusement park and - soon - a spin-off film and West End show, Harry Potter is one of the most iconic franchises in the history of fandom.
But things could have been very, very different…
Spoilers lie ahead for the Harry Potter series.
It’s been well-documented that J K Rowling struggled to get her first book published.
Almost a dozen houses, including Penguin, TransWorld and Harper Collins, rejected Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone outright.
When a first chapter arrived at Bloomsbury Publishing, it was destined to remain in the slush pile until its curious black binding caught the eye of a lowly assistant. On a whim, »
Today is National Look-a-Like day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.
Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us.
The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.
Check out these 8 famous dopplegangers below:

As fans continue their push for Idris Elba to fill Daniel Craig’s 007-sized shoes, they could point to far worse case studies for his suitability than “Bastille Day.” The hulking East Londoner may sport a Generican accent as a rogue CIA agent in James Watkins’ efficiently entertaining terrorist thriller, but in all other respects, he proves himself fighting fit for action-franchise duty: gravelly enough to lend this absurd Paris-set romp some gravitas, though he can wink and kick ass at the same time. While the pic pairs him with an affable partner in “Game of Thrones” alum Richard Madden, the standard-issue script doesn’t give their burgeoning buddy dynamic much kindling; instead, it’s Watkins’ lean, keen instinct for choreographing and cutting action set pieces that keeps “Bastille Day” afloat. Even if auds don’t exactly storm the gates, it’ll march on in ancillary.

Though the Four Horsemen’s repository of illusions and tricks are often much more intricate and complex, a standard deck of cards has and always will be an iconic companion to any magician. Bringing the gang together, today’s all-new poster for Now You See Me 2 upholds that tradition by placing its leading players in a house of cards.
Questionable Photoshop aside, those Four Horsemen will comprise the familiar faces of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, along with new recruit Lizzy Caplan as fresh-faced trickster, Lula. Making a triumphant return to the stage following a year-long absence, the group are soon foiled by the brilliant mind of Walter Mabry, son of Michael Caine’s corrupt insurance magnate and played by newcomer Daniel Radcliffe.

Chu will premiere Now You See Me 2 in cinemas this summer, and will then start up work on the third movie, which once again revolves around the mysterious masters of illusion, the Four Horsemen.
Lionsgate must be very confident of the summer movie, but let’s not forget how well the first one did a couple of years back. Now You See Me, which starred Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson and Mark Ruffalo, among others, made over $360 million worldwide. They all return for the sequel, which also sees Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan and Michael Caine also appear.
Now You See Me 2 opens on June 10th.

Jon M Chu is returning to direct the third Now You See Me movie...
Lionsgate has no shortage of confidence in its upcoming sequel, Now You See Me 2. The new movie, which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Lizzy Caplan, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Daniel Radcliffe, is due in cinemas in June. But ahead of its release, the studio - as had been previously promised - is moving ahead on Now You See Me 3.
Furthermore, Lionsgate has re-hired Jon M Chu to direct the next movie. Chu has helmed the second film (Louis Leterrier made the first), and it sounds as if he'll be getting down to work on Now You See Me 3 shortly.
Inevitably, there's no plot news or release date information on it yet. We'll pass that on as we get it.

The site also reports that Lionsgate struck a deal with Chu nearly two months before it releases his Now You See 2 on June 10. The studio believes the sequel will perform in the same range as the 2013 original, which took in $351.7 million worldwide. Louis Leterrier directed the original.
The upcoming sequel stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Lizzy Caplan (she replaced Isla Fisher), Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Jay Chou and Daniel Radcliffe.
Its unclear at this time who will come back for the third film.

With Now You See Me 2 soon to arrive in cinemas, Lionsgate has wasted no time in preparing for the third installment, according to Variety.
In what may be considered a bold move before the second film has even been released, the studio has set the sequel’s director John M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) to return for the third outing. Lionsgate is obviously confident in equaling and potentially bettering the performance of the 2013 original, which went on to gross $350 million at the worldwide box office.

Come June, Lionsgate will lift the curtain on the Four Horsemen once more and, by effect, Now You See Me 2.
A direct sequel to the magical sleeper hit of 2013, the studio has appointed Jon M. Chu at the helm for this year’s crime caper and though it’s still to hit theaters, plans are already in place for Now You See Me 3.
Word comes by way of Variety, revealing that Chu has been tapped to return for the threequel. Casting details for the embryonic follow-up are, as you would imagine, about as elusive as the Four Horsemen themselves, but Lionsgate is surely hosting talks with all of the core players – Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco – in anticipation of a third globetrotting escapade.

Louis Letterier helmed the first film while Chu came onboard to direct the second which is currently targeting a June 10th release. Ed Solomon and Pete Chiarelli penned the screenplay for that in which the Four Horsemen illusionist team resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Lizzy Caplan, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Jay Chou and Daniel Radcliffe star in the second. How many of them will be back for a potential third is unclear. The 2013 first film made $352 million worldwide from a $75 million budget.

You may have forgotten that a year ago, Lionsgate were already planning for "Now You See Me 3." Well, it wasn't just idle talk as today the studio has pegged a director for the followup to the sequel no one really knew they wanted. Variety reports that "Now You See Me 2" director Jon M. Chu has been tapped for "Now You See Me 3." No word yet on which cast members will return, but I would presume that like the second entry in the franchise, the third will feature all the main players (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, etc.) returning along with some starry new faces (such as Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzy Caplan who appear in part two). And while I found the first movie to be enjoyable and disposable, that it turned into a franchise is surprising to say the least. It'll be up to audiences to »

The studio struck a deal with Chu nearly two months before it releases his “Now You See Me 2” on June 10 — a signal that it believes the sequel will perform in the same range as the 2013 original, which took in $351.7 million worldwide.
Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are reprising their roles for “Now You See Me 2,” while Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher and Daniel Radcliffe has joined the cast.

Lionsgate hoped to end its presentation to theater owners at CinemaCon with a big bang — a screening of “Now You See Me 2.”
But roughly 15 minutes into the tale of a team of illusionists, the audience at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace was told to leave the theater, with security personnel citing “technical difficulties.” A CinemaCon staffer confirmed that, after the discovery of an unattended backpack, the theater was evacuated.
“Out of caution for the delegates and attendees, a potential threat had to be taken seriously,” said John Fithian, head of the National Association of Theatre Owners, the group behind CinemaCon, in a statement. “By the time we determined it was not a threat it was too late to restart the movie.”
A spokesperson with the Las Vegas Police Department said authorities had been called in due to a “suspicious package,” but said the situation was determined safe at 3:35 p. »

The biopic of Freddie Mercury, the legendary Queen front man who died of AIDS in 1991, is shaping up to be one of the greatest lost film projects of the modern age. Surely a slam dunk of a success waiting to happen, with it’s tale of glam rock excess, forbidden sexuality, celebrity stardom and the ravages of a well-publicised disease, the film has Oscar written all over it for almost certainly the man playing Mercury, at the very least. Yet the movie remains elusive, and battle lines between Queen and the man everyone thought would be Freddie grew wider this week as Brian May launched a scathing rebuke to Sacha Baron Cohen’s recent assertions he left the project because Queen wanted to secure their legacy.

Daniel Radcliffe and co. may be done with the world of Harry Potter, but Warner Bros. certainly is not. Coming this fall is Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, a spin-off of sorts in this magical world. Scripted by J.K. Rowling and featuring the return of director David Yates (who helmed the final four films), this new film follows Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist, who stops in New York following his travels to find and document magical creatures.
A new trailer has now arrived, which still doesn’t give away much of the story, but does a swell job teasing the magical elements to be had, from and transportive suitcase to a New York City full of surprises. Also starring Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jenn Murray, Faith Wood-Blagrove, and Colin Farrell, check out the new trailer below. »

When the raucous survival film Swiss Army Man set Sundance aflame this January – aided in no small part from some infamously inflammatory methane – the only tidbit more shocking than hearing secondhand strands from its preposterous plot was the news that indie dynamo distributer A24 picked up its check to jet ski it across cinemas nationwide. Prompting walkouts that don’t sound too dissimilar from recently announced Tribeca juror and enfant terrible Sebastian Silva’s 2015 submission Nasty Baby, Swiss Army Man was immediately accused of churlish, childish, and undeniably crass crimes against good taste – what else would one expect from a buddy film about Paul Dano enduring starvation and isolation on a desert isle thanks to the multipronged malleability of Daniel Radcliffe’s flatulent, tumescent corpse? Certainly not a Directing Award, which the film’s directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinhart scooped up nonetheless; together, they go by the monicker Daniels… »
