Eddie Redmayne becomes The Danish Girl in first trailer

1 September 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

There’s no doubt that Eddie Redmayne will be back in the Oscar race this season. The thirty-three-year-old actor will follow-up his Academy Award-winning performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything with his most recent turn as the eponymous Danish girl in Tom Hooper’s next film.

Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) co-stars as Copenhagen’s Gerda Wegender, an artist who asks her husband Einar (Redmayne) to fill in for her female model. Einar develops a preference for his female physical appearance, later becoming one of the first known recipients of sexual reassignment surgery. What transpires in between is a disarray of confusion, betrayal, misunderstandings, and of course, love.

The Danish Girl plays the Toronto International Film Festival before its wider release in November. The film also stars Ben WhishawMatthias Schoenaerts, and Amber Heard.

1 September 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012 it was reported that Daniel Craig had signed a two-film extension to his 007 contract following Skyfall, but now it seems he may be looking to retire his license to kill following this year’s Spectre.

Speaking to Esquire, Craig was asked if he plans to return as James Bond following the spy’s 24th adventure, replying that: “I really don’t know. Honestly. I’m not trying to be coy. At the moment I can’t even conceive it…At this moment, no. I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.”

The Danish Girl Trailer Offers Up Mesmerizing Eddie Redmayne

1 September 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

You may not have been familiar with the name Eddie Redmayne before he stunned people in last year’s The Theory of Everything, but everyone is going to know him soon enough, and if The Danish Girl isn’t enough, his turn in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will lock up the rest of the general populace.

More importantly, perhaps, it looks as though he may be taking another run at Best Actor awards, not just because he’s talented, but because he has back-to-back vehicles that are designed for award attention. Both are biopics that require one to act in ways that are, at the very least, out of the ordinary. They are biopics that focus on people who have to deal with massive adversity of one sort or another. And, they are biopics of people that, by and large, people aren’t especially interested in.

Daniel Craig on Bond: "He's very f**king lonely..."

1 September 2015 7:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Daniel Craig has spoken out about his take on James Bond, saying: "He's very f**king lonely".

Talking to Esquire, he opened up about what it really must be like to be 007, adding: "There's a great sadness."

"He's f**king these beautiful women, but then they leave and it's... sad," he continued.

"And as a man gets older, it's not a good look. It might be a nice fantasy – that's debatable – but the reality, after a couple of months..."

It's enough to make Alan Partridge weep.

The upcoming Bond movie Spectre sees Craig back for his fourth appearance as 007, with Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris also reprising their roles.

Fresh faces to the franchise include Christoph Waltz, Monica Bellucci, Léa Seydoux, Sherlock's Andrew Scott and newcomer Alessandro Cremona.

Spectre will be released in the UK on October 26, with a Us release following on November 6. The James Bond issue of Esquire, »
