Why Is British Acting Dominated By The Privately Educated?

7 February 2016 4:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at a recurring issue in British film and television…

While the debate about the lack of nominations for black actors at the Oscars rumbles on in the Us, a similar debate is happening in Britain. However, in the UK the debate is not about race; it’s about class. The argument goes that the top-tier of acting talent is dominated by a privately educated elite.

Last year Labour MP Chris Bryant bemoaned the lack of diversity in the arts world, complaining that it was dominated by those who were educated privately. More recently Damian Lewis was involved in a minor controversy about him being invited to his local comprehensive school for an event as he had been educated at Eton. This week acting icon Diana Rigg hit out at those complaining about upper class actors dominating our screens by pointing out that the opposite was »

A Critical Look At British Box Office Figures

31 January 2016 3:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway casts a critical eye over the latest British box office statistics…

On Friday the BFI released the statistics for 2015 at the UK box office. The headlines that came with it showed that it was a record year at the box office in the UK and Ireland (similarly to the way the Us and Canada are one entity when it comes to box office, the UK and Ireland are put together).

In short, 171.9 million trips to the cinema were made in Britain and Ireland last year, up 9% on 2014, with ticket sales of £1,240 million, a 17% increase on the previous year. 34% of films released in the UK qualified as British, the highest since records began (though records only began in 2001), which seems like a good amount for a country whose cinemas are usually dominated by Hollywood, but when you realise that it includes almost any film with the slightest »

So, could the two have been fleshing out a deal for Cruise to return as Maverick? Talking about the direction of the script and storyline? Hopefully we’ll have more news soon…

Top Gun 2: Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer meet up

27 January 2016 10:19 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

Could there be progress on Top Gun 2? Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer have certainly been chatting about it...

A small step forward perhaps, but maybe a notable one in the ongoing development of Top Gun 2. The last we heard on the project was when Val Kilmer posted he'd agreed to a role in the movie. That said, there's been little sign of the movie getting in front of cameras anytime soon.

Tom Cruise, for one, is now committed to finishing Jack Reacher 2, shooting Mission: Impossible 6 and then making The Mummy reboot. But it still sounds as though Top Gun 2 is an active project.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who of late has been working on Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, has given the latest update. And it's a simple one, confirming that he and Cruise have met up to discuss the Top Gun sequel. »

"Kingsman," "Top Gun," "Galaxy" Sequel Updates

27 January 2016 9:25 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A couple of in the works sequels have offered brief updates on their status.

First up the follow-up to Matthew Vaughn's 2015 action-comedy spy film and smash hit "Kingsman: The Secret Service," which is due to begin production shortly ahead of a June 16th 2017 release. The film's star Taron Egerton reprises his role as Eggsy in the follow-up, and speaking at the Sundance Film Festival to Collider, he says:

"With Kingsman, we're shooting in the summer at present. There's a script, it's brilliant. Obviously there's only so much I can say but what I can say is that we shot [the first] one all in the U.K., that won't be the case with the next one. It's a far more international story, we're going to some incredible places, and we have a villain to rival Samuel L. Jackson - this new one is so brilliantly written I wish I could play it. »

It looks like the wheels are finally up on "Top Gun 2." The looooong-awaited sequel to Tom Cruise's 1986 movie got itself a solid script last year, and now there's photographic proof of progress.

The Good and the Bad: Driving Films to Remember and Forget

25 January 2016 7:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Films have long been able to give us a glimpse into another life. One that only movie stars can access but, deep down, we all secretly wish that one day we too will be able to live out.

There are literally hundreds of driving films – some that will stay in your mind forever and some that should be consigned to the bargain bucket, never to be seen again. To make a great driving film – the sort to inspire you to want to learn to drive yourself – you need to have serious gear-heads on board, classic motors, fast cars, car chases and a spectacular storyline.

Here, we sort through the movies to remember and those better off forgotten.

The Good

Rush (2013) – Ron Howard’s biopic about the ‘70s rivalry between Formula One racers Niki Lauda and James Hunt is over the top in all the right ways. The two main characters »
