How Eddie Redmayne Became Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’

28 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Eddie Redmayne always knew that the toughest critic of “The Theory of Everything” would be the man he portrays onscreen — Stephen Hawking. The 72-year-old physicist recently made the trek from his home in Cambridge, England, to Working Title’s production offices in London to watch the biopic based on his life. Hawking’s longtime battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als) has left him a quadriplegic, and he speaks through a computer-generated voice amplifier. Before the screening, he met Redmayne. “He took a while to type something, then said, ‘I’ll let you know what I think — good or otherwise,’ ” Redmayne recalls. “I said, ‘Stephen, if it’s otherwise, you don’t need to go into details.’ ”

After the lights came up, a nurse wiped a tear from Hawking’s eye. He called the film “broadly true,” and even celebrated with the film’s director James Marsh and screenwriter Anthony McCarten »

Brad Pitt was box-office gold in Inglourious Basterds but audiences don't seem to find his latest stab at playing a Us soldier in the heat of battle in WW2. quite as compelling.

Fury, which stars Pitt as the leader of a tank crew fighting its way across Germany in the spring of 1945, captured nearly $2.6 million in its first four days in Australia.

That.s below the $3.05 million debut in 2009 of Quentin Tarantino. brutal drama, which wound up earning a potent $13.8 million.

31 Days of Horror: 200 Greatest Horror Films

The hardest part about choosing my favourite horror films of all time, is deciding what stays and what goes. I started with a list that featured over 200 titles, and I think it took more time to pick and choose between them, than to actually sit down and write each capsule review. In order to hold on to my sanity, I decided to not include short films, documentaries, »

Ten Best: Woodland Horrors

24 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Deep in stark woodland at the base of Mount Fuji, restless whispers echo as the light fades on a mid-winter afternoon. Here, amongst a maze of roots, a lone figure takes her life, binding her body to the branches and her spirit to the undergrowth.

Years later, Miko and her college friends head into Suicide Forest. Miko yearns to abide a Halloween ritual steeped in demonic tradition which will release her mother’s trapped soul. Filming their journey amongst the shadows, strange things start to happen; angry murmurs and sightings of ghosts warn there are those who do not want them there. Suddenly, the path to life is barricaded by the dead who have nothing to lose…

To celebrate Grave Halloween (pictured above) being released on DVD on 27th October, we’ve decided to explore other iconic woodland horror films.

Rapace Talks "Prometheus" Sequel Progress

24 October 2014 1:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Ridley Scott confirming last month that the xenomorphs from the original "Alien" films won't be showing up in the "Prometheus" sequel, questions have quickly arisen as to what we will see in the new film.

We do know the film will see the return of Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw and potentially Michael Fassbender as the head of the android David. Rapace was asked about the sequel recently by MTV UK and offered her thoughts on where her character might go:

"Well, I know Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't want to go back. She can't go to Earth, because there's nothing left for her there, really. She wants to go to where they came from, these giant creatures. I think, in her head, that's a dark paradise, in a way, so what's there? I don't know. I think she wants answers, »

Noomi Rapace says God could be the baddie in Prometheus 2

20 October 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Ridley Scott gave an update on the status of Prometheus 2, during which he stated that the iconic Xenomorph from his 1979 sci-fi classic Alien was “cooked” and would be absent from the next film as he continues to take the series in another direction. Now Prometheus star Noomi Rapace has shared her thoughts on who could be the antagonist of the follow-up, telling MTV News that:

“God, maybe? Or the devil? I don’t know where [Ridley's] gonna take us but I can’t wait to go there. I don’t know what we’re going to discover. Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. She can’t go to earth, there’s nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where [the Engineers] came from. She wants answers, she wants to know. I feel like I’m sharing her curiosity, but also her anger.”

Watch: Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' Gets Its Cult Film Due

20 October 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Courtesy of a script by Cormac McCarthy, Ridley Scott’s 2013 thriller veers wildly between over-the-top satire reminiscent of Terry Southern at his most indelicate and grimly ghoulish violence a la McCarthy’s own "No Country For Old Men." The stellar cast, who seem down for anything, includes Michael Fassbender as the slightly honorable lawyer to an extremely dishonorable drug runner played by Javier Bardem. Brad Pitt drops in for a charming cameo as a doomed business associate but the film will be best remembered for Cameron Diaz as the crime lord’s girlfriend who reminds us you can’t spell “carnal” without “car”. »

Tom Hardy Wanted for Villain Role in X-men: Apocalypse

20 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Suicide Squad isn't the only comic book movie that Tom Hardy is up for. According to The Wrap, the British actor is also up for the role of the villain Apocalypse in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse!

At one point Hardy was rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but it seems like that ship has sailed, and he's not on it. One thing for sure is, it looks like he's going to be attached to another comic book project in the near future. This wouldn't be the first time either, as he also played Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises

I think Hardy would be great in both Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. But if I had to choose to see him in one of those it would have to be as Apocalypse, because he would freakin' be awesome in that role! »

Tom Hardy wanted for X-Men: Apocalypse villain En Sabah Nur

20 October 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy is reportedly being sought to play the villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Dark Knight Rises star is wanted by director Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox to play En Sabah Nur, the world's first mutant who was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC.

The character, created by Louise and Walter Simonson, first appeared in X-Factor #6 and was glimpsed in the post-credits sequence for X-Men: Days of Future Past (where he was played by Brendan Pedder).

According to The Wrap, Hardy is also in the running for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad film and Marvel's Doctor Strange but won't be able to appear in all three.

X-Men: Apocalypse will see Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult return for the sequel, which is due for release in May 2016.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that Apocalypse will be the final instalment of the X-Men prequel trilogy.
