8 amazing rock 'n' roll transformations: From Gary Oldman to Cate Blanchett

11 hours ago

The long-awaited Jimi Hendrix biopic All By My Side opens in cinemas today (October 24).

Andre '3000' Benjamin plays the iconic musician in the movie, which depicts Jimi's humble beginnings to becoming possibly the world's greatest guitarist.

This has inspired us to compile our own list of the greatest portrayals of musicians in rock 'n' roll biopics, often going above and beyond mere physical transformation:

1. Andy Serkis as Ian Dury

Andy Serkis was BAFTA nominated for his critically-acclaimed role - played to perfection - as charismatic '70s punk rock singer and songwriter Ian Dury in Mat Whitecross's 2010 biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.

To portray Dury's physical condition - he contracted polio as a child - Serkis lost two stone and built up the muscle mass on the right-hand side of his body so the other side was weaker.

He added: "I had a body wax. It's the most »

Wonder Woman movie: 5 female directors who could take up the mantle

12 hours ago

We'll admit it – the prospect of Zack Snyder being the first director to bring a live-action Wonder Woman to the big screen does not necessarily fill us with confidence, given his track record with "empowering" female narratives like Sucker Punch. Heavy emphasis on those air quotes.

But this morning came news that Warner Bros and DC are on the hunt for a female director to spearhead Gal Gadot's standalone spinoff in 2017, which would unfortunately be a groundbreaking move in itself for the superhero movie industry.

While it's undeniably early days (we're a fair way off from even having a writer confirmed), speculation is fun, so below Digital Spy rounds up five potential contenders for the Wonder Woman job.

1. Kathryn Bigelow

While she's now best known for her rigorous and critically acclaimed work on war dramas The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow cut her teeth on genre movies. »

Daniel Radcliffe wants to tour Harry Potter Studio: 'Disguises don't work'

12 hours ago

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he has never been on the Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Speaking to Jonathan Ross, the actor, who played the title role in the Harry Potter films, said that he has never had the chance to visit the attraction.

"There's never been a good time for me to go back when it wouldn't cause some commotion or something," he said. "But hopefully I'll get to do a movie there and then just slip in.

"It's amazing how little disguises help and then how ridiculous you feel once you've been found in a disguise."

He also revealed that his proudest moment has nothing to do with his film roles, but is in fact being taught to dance.

"I was the blankest canvas my dance teacher had ever seen," he said. "He taught me to dance, I owe it all to him.

The Babadook review: A wonderfully disconcerting chiller

12 hours ago

Director: Jennifer Kent; Screenwriter: Jennifer Kent; Starring: Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman, Daniel Henshall, Tiffany Lyndall-Knight, Tim Purcell; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

The best horror takes place within the dark recesses of your mind. It's not what you see, it's what you feel. An abundance of CGI beasts can never challenge that. The Babadook is a stark reminder of this, gripping and terrifying throughout with only rare lapses into convention.

What makes this Australian movie so chillingly effective is that it's primarily a character study in which writer-director Jennifer Kent takes you inside the tormented psyche of a lonely soul and doesn't let you leave until the end credits. The mind of widower Amelia (Essie Davis) is a disturbing and unsettling place, swamped with grief over the violent death of her husband and strained by the erratic behaviour of her young son Samuel (Noah Wiseman).

Benedict Cumberbatch elaborates on Star Wars: 'I shouldn't be saying this'

18 hours ago

Benedict Cumberbatch is likely to spark fresh rumours about his involvement in Star Wars Episode VII after discussing the movie franchise on tonight's (October 24) Graham Norton Show.

When asked by Norton whether he will be appearing in the film, Cumberbatch didn't rule it out, replying: "No comment."

Cumberbatch, who previously collaborated with Star Wars Episode VII director Jj Abrams on Star Trek Into Darkness, did admit that he had visited the set of Star Wars, although he appeared to regret making that revelation.

"I went to the set. It was incredible," said Cumberbatch.

"I probably shouldn't be saying these things."

If Star Wars was looking for someone to play a Wookie, they may have found the right man.

Cumberbatch, who is currently promoting The Imitation Game, is joined by Miranda Hart and Timothy Spall on the BBC One chat show tonight. Maroon 5 are the musical guests.

Kristen Stewart has revealed that she is taking a break from acting.

The Twilight actress, whose movie Camp X-Ray is currently touring film festivals, told USA Today she has been working solidly "for two years".
