iGN recently interviewed actor Tom Holland at a press event for his latest film “In the Heart of the Sea”, directed by Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth (“Rush”), Cillian Murphy (“Inception”), Ben Whishaw (“Spectre”), Brendan Gleeson (“Braveheart”), and Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”). Holland has been cast as the new Spider-Man who will make his first live-action appearance in next year’s Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War”; Holland is also set to star in a solo “Spider-Man” film directed by Jon Watts (“Cop Car”).
When asked about his take on the character, Holland said:
“It's very daunting, because obviously the first two guys were so great and they did such fantastic performances, so I've got quite a lot to follow. I think I'll have the help from the rest of the Marvel Universe and what's quite exciting is when you read these comics that he's in, he »

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade.

Manuel here. Has it really been a year since the last time I gave thanks (not coincidentally with another pic of Ms Blanchett)? I feel as though I should be giving thanks in front of some sort of food, so imagine I’ve come with a full dozen donuts from Donut Time.
- For unabashedly queer Christmas flicks featuring fab ladies.
- For having had the chance to see over twenty-four films at the New York Film Festival (and having been in the same room as Kate Winslet!!)
- For Wiig, in all and every incarnation.
- For all the delicious food on Please Like Me, a show you should all be watching!
- For Mad Men’s beautiful and perfect ending.

Who said acting is nothing more than reciting lines and collecting a paycheck? Sometimes it’s much more than that, with our latest exhibit being Chris Hemsworth (who usually has a stone-chiseled body to portray Marvel superhero Thor) and his emaciated new look he achieved as a form of method acting throughout the duration of filming In the Heart of the Sea.
This isn’t the first time a high-profile actor has shed weight for a role; Christian Bale is no stranger to these extreme lengths of getting into character, especially for the overlooked and under-appreciated film The Machinist.
It goes without saying that radically changing your diet routine like this cannot be healthy, but one must applaud the dedication of the performers and have nothing but utmost respect for sacrificing their health in the name of art. Now someone get Chris Hemsworth a few McDonald’s Big Macs!

Nothing like getting the gang back together after a successful entry. That seems to be the case for the Mission: Impossible franchise, and that includes doing something they’ve never done before.
Variety reports Christopher McQuarrie, who wrote and directed this year’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, is in talks to return in both capacities for the sixth entry. If McQuarrie agrees, he would be the first director in the franchise to return for a second entry.
On top of bringing McQuarrie back, Variety adds that stand-out Rebecca Ferguson could also be coming back for the next movie after the studio signed her for an option. Paramount is looking to turn around the next Mi film after Rogue Nation was such a runaway hit.

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a final extended trailer for Ron Howard's epic new action adventure "In the Heart of the Sea," which focuses on the character of young Thomas Nickerson played by Tom Holland. The film is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.
“In the Heart of the Sea” stars Chris Hemsworth (“The Avengers,” “Rush”) as the vessel’s veteran first mate Owen Chase; Benjamin Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) as its inexperienced Captain, George Pollard; Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) as second mate Matthew Joy; and Ben Whishaw (“Skyfall”) as novelist Herman Melville, whose inquiries into the event 30 years later helped bring the story to light.
Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) also stars as young seaman Tom Nickerson, and Brendan Gleeson (“Edge ofTomorrow”) as the same man, 30 years later. Spanish actor Jordi Mollá (“Riddick”) is the captain of another ship, »

Gk Films’ biopic of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury is starting to pick up some steam this week, as it’s been announced that The Theory Of Everything writer, Anthony McCarten, will be penning the script. Though the project is still untitled, apparently the studio is toying around with the idea of calling it Bohemian Rhapsody, which is obviously a nod to the band’s biggest song.
In terms of casting, Sacha Baron Cohen was attached for a long time, but departed a few years ago. The most recent name to be linked to the part was Ben Whishaw, and apparently, he’s still the first choice. While no deal has been made just yet, with the actor’s profile quickly rising, it’d be easy to see Gk Films snatching him up for their biopic.
Regardless of what happens, it’s clear that the project is picking up some serious »

I honestly did not see The Theory of Everything, but I have to assume Stephen Hawking had a ton of pelvis-thrusting rock numbers that showcased his operatic voice and high-octane sexuality? I don't know who Stephen Hawking is. If so, that explains why Gk Films has hired The Theory of Everything scribe Anthony McCarten to pen a screenplay about the late, great Queen front man, potentially titled Bohemian Rhapsody. While Sacha Baron Cohen pulled out of the film back in 2013 over disputes with surviving Queen members, Deadline reports that Spectre actor Ben Whishaw has been mentioned to play Mercury. If he's not available, might Stephen Hawking be available? Again, I have no idea who he is or what he does. I'm just throwing that out there. »

A new writer has been found for the long-planned Freddie Mercury biopic. Anthony McCarten (The Theory Of Everything) has been hired by Gk Films to write the biopic of the late, legendary Queen frontman, and Spectre star Ben Whishaw is the hot favourite to play the lead.
The film is now being referred to as Bohemian Rhapsody, named after the famous Queen song. The film has had a host of big names attached to star in it in the past, the most recent being Sacha Baron-Cohen who, I feel, would have absolutely nailed it as Mercury. He departed the project citing ‘creating differences’ a little while back. The rumours were that Cohen was unhappy over the direction that the film was heading, and reportedly wanted to examine a few of the darker elements of the Queen story.
The film already has a draft by award-winning scribe Peter Morgan, »

A project we thought had been quietly shelved was the mooted biopic of Queen's legendary frontman, the late Freddie Mercury. At one stage, Dexter Fletcher was close to directing this one we understand, before departing the project.
Turns out the film is still happening.
Ben Whishaw remains the top choice to play Mercury (for a long time it was Sacha Baron Cohen who was set to play him, but he left in the end over creative differences), although he's not signed on the dotted line as of yet. But there is progress, as a fresh writer has been hired.
Anthony McCarten, who bagged an Oscar nomination for his The Theory Of Everything script, has joined the Freddie Mercury film, which is currently going by the name of Bohemian Rhapsody. No director is »
Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "The Last King of Scotland") penned the first draft for the film and, should McCarten's re-write go well, Sony Pictures has the right to opt into the project. Though presently without a title, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is being floated as a possibility.
Ben Whishaw, who has no less than five films out this Fall (Spectre, Suffragette, The Lobster, The Danish Girl and In The Heart Of The Sea), is still reportedly being sought to play Mercury in the film. A director is not yet locked.

"In the Land of Blood and Honey" (2011)Angelina Jolie made her move to directing with this ambitious foreign language romance drama set against the background of the Bosnian War. Goran Kostić brings a weary vulnerability to Denijel, a solider fighting for the Bosnian Serbs, whose father happens to be the savage leader of the Yugoslav People's Army and their prison camp. To his surprise, he finds a former love suffering in confinement as a Bosniak prisoner. Ajla (Zana Marjanovic) is a sensitive young woman with envious resolve and self-assurance to spare. Their romantic reawakening passionately plays out in secret as they go to harrowing lengths to protect a history that could kill them both. "Bright Star" (2009)Jane Campion's gorgeously realized and lovingly crafted "Bright Star" keeps its protagonists — poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and the forward-thinking Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) — apart due to seemingly surmountable issues, like wealth (he. »
It may be raking in the cash at the box office, but James Bond’s 24th adventure Spectre has received a mixed reception from fans and critics. Flickering Myth’s Anghus Houvouras thought it could very well be the worst Bond movie, and it seems that former 007 Pierce Brosnan isn’t much of a fan either.
“I was looking forward to it enormously,” Brosnan tells Yahoo. “I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak — it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did. [Spectre] is neither fish nor fowl. It’s neither Bond nor Bourne. Am I in a Bond movie? Not in a Bond movie? But Daniel Craig, in the fourth go-round, has ownership of it. He had a nice looseness to him. He’s a mighty warrior, and I think he found a great sense of himself in this »
