The stories range from science fiction to »

When 20th Century Fox released the official synopsis for Victor Frankenstein back in June, it became clear that this was not your typical Frankenstein movie, since it is told from the perspective of Igor (Daniel Radcliffe), the troubled assistant to the title character (James McAvoy). While promoting Horns, Daniel Radcliffe offered new details about director Paul McGuigan's film, which he describes as a "fun adventure movie" and offers new details about Victor and Igor's relationship.
"I think our Frankenstein is a really kind of rip-roaring, fun adventure movie version of Frankenstein. I would really struggle to class it as horror. I think there are horror elements to it and nods to previous versions of Frankenstein, but it's much more a film about - the thing that I hope will make it stand out is the relationship between James' character and I. Victor and Igor are two people who come »
While Daniel Radcliffe continues to shed his Harry Potter stardom this month by starring in the grisly horror comedy Horns, the actor has already turned his attention to another upcoming project, in which he takes on one of his most against-type roles to date. In 20th Century Fox’s Victor Frankenstein, Radcliffe will put a new spin on the hunchbacked Igor, assistant and friend to the brilliant and destructive medical student Victor von Frankenstein (James McAvoy).
That a household name like Radcliffe is taking on the part of Igor, traditionally a supporting player in adaptations of Mary Shelley’s horror classic, marks one of many ways in which Victor Frankenstein will set itself apart from the crowd. When asked during an interview for Horns how his Frankenstein would sidestep comparisons to other works, Radcliffe explained that, in addition to there being “a lot of action:”

Daniel Radcliffe stars in one of the few horror films hitting cinemas at Halloween this year - "Horns". Already available on VOD services in the United States, the film is still taking a more traditional release path in other countries including the U.K. where Radcliffe has been doing press.
Speaking with Empire Online, Radcliffe's next project to hit cinemas is 20th Century Fox's new take on "Frankenstein" which stars Radcliffe as the servant Igor to James McAvoy's Dr. Victor Frankenstein. Frequent "Sherlock" episode diretor Paul McGuigan helms this take on the story which will be very different to the book.
In fact, Frankenstein's monster is not really a part of the action with Radcliffe saying:
"The creation of the monster isn't right until the end – you see their attempts at it. Although I'm not sure we're teeing ourselves up for four more movies or anything.
Instead, the movie »

Julian Fellowes’ costume drama begins its fifth year with a slew of domestic intrigues in place, as well as some new tensions. Warning: Minor spoilers ahead! At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, "Downton Abbey Season 5 Begins With A Jolt," in which I review the fifth season premiere of Downton Abbey, which launches on ITV in the U.K. (Sorry, U.S. readers!) Period drama Downton Abbey had begun to show signs of wear and tear, particularly in its fourth season, where the creakiness of the subplots began to match that of the house’s ancient stairs. It was, simply put, not the best year for the drama, which had come off the narrative highs of its third season, including the highly emotional deaths of two linchpin characters, Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens) and Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay). But, in its fourth, Downton sagged into overt melodrama with storylines involving murder, »

Jennifer Lawrence is speaking out in a big way regarding the recent nude photos of her that were leaked.
Over a month ago, Lawrence was among a slew of female celebrities whose phones were hacked and nude photographs of the women were leaked on the Internet. Other victims of the hacking included Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Cuoco, Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay and actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead (to name a few).

"It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting," Lawrence vented to V.F. contributing editor Sam Kashner. "The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible. Just the fact »
The Riot Club, 2014
Directed by Lone Scherfig.
Starring Sam Claflin, Max Irons, Douglas Booth, Holliday Grainger, Olly Alexander, Jessica Brown Findlay, Ben Schnetzer, Tom Hollander, Sam Reid, Freddie Fox, Natalie Dormer, Sam Reid, Jack Farthing and Matthew Beard.
Two freshers at Oxford University are selected to be part of an elite dining society, reserved only for ‘absolute legends’: The Riot Club, named after a legendary philanderer, debaucher and debonair, 1700s Oxford student Lord Ryot (surprise uncredited cameo by Game of Thrones’ Harry Lloyd). The aim: to drink oneself senseless, to have no restrictions, and to have fun at whatever the cost. No consequence is too severe, as money is not an issue amongst its members. It’s lucrative hedonism at its very finest and most extreme, and Miles (Max Irons) and Alistair (Sam Claflin) are having the time of their lives – right until the moment one fancy pub »

A computer in the Sterling Cooper & Partners office created some surreal situations on Mad Men this past season, but Jon Hamm's not done with "techno-phobia." Hamm will star alongside Game of Thrones's Oona Chaplin and actor Rafe Spall in the upcoming Christmas special of the British anthology series Black Mirror, Channel 4 announced. EW television critic Melissa Maerz called Black Mirror "the Twilight Zone of our time," and according to Channel 4, the 90-minute special will concern "three interwoven stories of Yuletide techno-paranoia." Hamm's character will be a figure within all three. "I am beyond thrilled to be »

The Riot Club hits our movie screens today and our friend James Kleinmann got to chat with the cast about the movie directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education). The movie is based on the play Posh by Laura Wade.
Below we have interviews with Douglas Booth, Sam Claflin, Jessica Brown Findlay & Holliday Grainger, and Max Irons who all give their take on the play Posh and how they got involved in the movie adaptation.
Check out all the interviews below. The Riot Club is in cinemas today. You can see our review of the movie here.

As timely as Laura Wade's acidic satirical drama Posh might have felt when it premiered at the Royal Court in 2010, its impact has been augmented in the four years of Coalition government that have followed, as Britain has come to be ruled entirely by the 1%. In adapting her own play for the screen, Wade has necessarily expanded its scope and thus diluted its bite, but this amorality tale about a barely-fictionalised Oxford drinking society still rings unpleasantly true.
"Filthy. Rich. Spoiled. Rotten," runs the spot-on tagline for Lone Scherfig's big screen adaptation, which centres on two Oxford freshers who are recruited to join the highly exclusive Riot Club, and become seduced and corrupted by its single-minded pursuit of hedonism. Miles (Max Irons) considers himself an outsider »

One of the many films to premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival was The Riot Club. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education) from screenwriter Laura Wade’s adaptation of her critically-acclaimed play, Posh, the film follows two Oxford University freshmen who begin the initiation process to join the infamous and highly selective Riot Club.
