He's back! After being the big plot twist in Iron Man 3, the Marvel menace known as Trevor Slattery is returning in the Marvel One Shot All Hail The King. He was subdued by Tony Stark, and sent to prison as part of a major conspiracy of terrorism, but what's prison like when you're not the world's most feared criminal, but rather a fraud whose been called out? Not too bad it seems! In the clip, courtesy of USA Today, we see Slattery (Ben Kingsley) getting acquainted with the criminal population of Seagate Prison. And while some aren't impressed by this odd little man with a distinctive haircut and Liverpudlian accent, others are geeking out as he re-enacts one of The Mandarin's catchphrases. But hey, he's not your meat puppet. English thespian Ben Kingsley has taken on long list of iconic roles. In TV movies he's played Moses and Sweeney Todd. »
The new “Romeo and Juliet” cinemacast marks the latest effort to turn stage shows into a theatrical experience, a trend that is only in its infancy on Broadway but is more popular with London productions.
“Initially when it was suggested to me, I was like, ‘I don’t know how I feel about that,’” Bloom said last week in New York. “Can they capture the magic? Can they capture the feeling of being in a live audience in that theater?”
“And then I thought, ‘(why not?)’” He said he wanted to leave a record of his performance for his 3-year-old son and future generations of Shakespeare students. “Quite honestly, the experience was very rewarding,” Bloom said. “It’s a very challenging role. »

Chicago – It’s “Cabaret” for god’s sake. It’s not “Bambi”. You’re supposed to need to leave the kids at home watching their own Disney flick. You don’t go to McDonald’s to eat healthy just like you don’t go to “Cabaret” for good clean fun.
Play Rating: 3.5/5.0
The show at Chicagoland’s Marriott Theatre starts off with so much potential because of a promise from our Emcee (Stephen Schellhardt). He guarantees we’ll delve into the sketchy world of sin in the Kit Kat Klub where we can put our real-world worries aside. It’s a “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” kind of warranty, but you never feel it realized. And that is the show’s biggest downfall.

Ooh, we could murder a doughnut. Wednesday's episode of The Great Sport Relief Bake Off was the closest yet, as Jamelia, Michael Ball, Victoria Pendleton and Emma Freud fought valiantly for the crown (well, apron). It was anyone's game. Everyone had a comedy disaster; everyone had a triumph. And we obviously loved it. But what were our favourite bits? Read on to find out...
The Signature Bake - Traybakes
First off, we have to mention how much we loved Victoria's prim and proper school prefect look and her superb facial expressions - especially when she whipped cream onto herself. But largely, everyone's traybakes seemed to start off well (however disconcerting it was learning that Michael had played Sweeney Todd and thinking through the implications of that). It was also a joy to see Mary getting excited at the mention of cointreau in Victoria's blondies. (That and a hot toddy traybake from Michael? »
