Exclusive: Daniel Radcliffe On Frankenstein

1 hour ago

Photo: Marco VitturWith his quirky drama Horns just around the corner, Daniel Radcliffe stopped by to chat movie things with Empire. With his Seb Coe movie Gold currently in a holding pattern, the current Rad-slate is dominated by 20th Century Fox’s new take on Mary Shelley’s weird scientist, Victor Frankenstein. Radcliffe, who plays Igor (or Ygor), bills it as “a real adventure at its heart, a fun movie” while stressing that there’s brains to go with the brawn. “[It’s] very smart in terms of the ideas it’s discussing, [which is] a rare combination for a huge movie.”Igor, of course, is Frankenstein’s (James McAvoy) factotum. The character maybe lost a little intellectual freight with Marty Feldman’s portrayal of him as a boggle-eyed lunatic in Mel Brooks’ hilarious Young Frankenstein (“It’s pronounced ‘I-gor’!”), so Radcliffe’s version will probably be a little closer to what Shelley intended. »

David Ayer Talks DC.s Suicide Squad

2 hours ago

David Ayer has been a busy man lately. The writer/director has turned out End Of Watch, Sabotage and now Fury is little over two action-packed years. Next up is the serious upscale that comes with commandeering DC’s freshly-announced superhero movie, Suicide Squad, and Ayer is ready for the challenge.“Fury whetted my appetite for a bigger canvas and this idea of world creation,” he told Empire. “You can do amazing things as a filmmaker if you have the proper tools, and those are time and money.”Money and time he’ll have plenty of – Suicide Squad is scheduled as the second DC behemoth to hit the big screen, following Batman V Superman in two years’ time – and, although he couldn’t say much, his vision for the movie should reassure fans. “I can say that it’s a Dirty Dozen with supervillains,” he said. “Then I can ask the question, »

2 hours ago

Well, this was predictable. After seeing Transformers and other properties based on its brands generate billions of dollars, Hasbro was naturally going to root around in its warehouse and find new ways to turn toys and games into movies. And what better choice than a long-established title with huge name recognition, a successful current TV series and even an unexpected sub-culture – Bronies –who enjoy it? Yes, My Little Pony is even now cantering towards the big screen.Though the ponies – created back in 1983 by Bonnie Zacherle, Charles Muenchinger and Steve D’Aguanno – have been the subject of TV Movies and several cartoon series, this will mark the first proper cinematic outing for the characters currently to be found gracing television with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.No plot details have been revealed about the movie, though expect a blend of life lessons and colourful adventures, with Ice Age: Continental Drift »

London Film Festival 2014: Fury Gala

9 hours ago

The BFI London Film Festival 2014 came to a close last night with a star-studded gala premiere for David Ayer’s visceral World War II movie Fury, starring Brad Pitt. Fury follows military leader Wardaddy (Pitt) as he commands an American tank crew through Nazi Germany in the final months of the conflict. When one of his crew dies, Wardaddy is lumbered with trigger-shy Private Ellison (Logan Lerman), who must learn his stripes in the field of battle.So far, so genre. However, with the director behind End Of Watch in the hotseat, Fury is far from conventional. Struggling to be heard over the screams of the gathered fans, co-star Jon Bernthal – who plays loose cannon crew member Grady 'Coon-Ass' Travis – told Empire that the film is more like a “family drama” than a traditional war movie.“It’s about a family travelling through hell in a metal box and we had to create that family, »
