Beano Studios has announced the main voice cast for the upcoming CG animated show Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed, a 52-part series based upon the iconic comic book character, which is set to hit Cbbc later this year.
Joining previously announced Freddie Fox (The Mystery of Edwin Drood; The Three Musketeers; Worried About The Boy) – who voices Dennis – are Kathryn Drysdale, Rasmus Hardiker, Ryan Sampson, Joanna Ruiz and Kelly-Marie Stewart.
Rasmus (Lead Balloon, Scream Street, Danger Mouse) joins the cast as Dennis’ archrival, the pompous Walter, who is always out to ruin the fun for Dennis and his pals. Following his famed role as Count Duckula in Danger Mouse, Rasmus is the ideal fit for the sneaky and self-centered Walter, who will do anything it takes to be the teacher’s pet. Always cunning and quick to boss around the other kids, he never misses an opportunity to exploit his status as »

Directed by Guy Ritchie.
Robbed of his birth right, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.
If you don’t like Guy Ritchie’s directing style then you will not enjoy King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. If you are more open to it then it’s an entertaining and inoffensively enjoyable action romp with a great hammy villain performance from Law and a solid leading man turn from Hunnam.
In this incarnation of the King Arthur legend, Arthur (Hunnam) has been raised in a brothel and is an adept street fighter. After escaping »

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.
It’s guaranteed that whatever your expectations are for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, it’s nothing in comparison to what’s actually in store. Just another reason marketing should be ignored, as to whether a movie looks good or bad isn’t necessarily always the issue, but more so »

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword brings cockney swagger to British folklore, but in a very “Guy Ritchie” way that doesn’t jive with medieval hooliganism. Despite how those Monty Python boys once jested, Camelot ’tis not a silly place – in fact, it’s dreadfully serious and tonally ajar. Ritchie desperately wants to make a knights-and-mages RocknRolla, but stays too stern despite video-gamer digitization. How can such overwhelming mysticism be so pedestrian and drab? Maybe it’s the two-hour-plus running time? Or maybe the lack of evolved gangster coloring? Either way, “Ritchieisms” feel restricted by tight period bindings. All that, and I don’t see Charlie Hunnam as a fitting muse for Ritchie’s more charismatic tastes. Excalibur and all.
Mr. Hunnam stars as a young Arthur, heir to the throne of Camelot but convinced he’s a whore’s bastard son. He experiences life on the »
