The top 25 secret agents in film

18 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

Can 'Straight Outta Compton' Pull Off 3rd Box Office Win in a Row?

26 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal's Straight Outta Compton is on a roll at the box office, taking the top spot in its first two weeks in theaters. This weekend marks the end of the summer movie season, with just two new movies opening in wide release, The Weinstein Company's No Escape and Warner Bros.' drama We Are Your Friends, neither of which should be able to unseat Straight Outta Compton, which is well on its way to taking the top spot for its third week in a row. Straight Outta Compton surely won't put up massive numbers this weekend, but they won't need much.

Straight Outta Compton has already earned $113.8 million domestically, from a $28 million budget, expanding last weekend from 2,757 theaters to 3,025 theaters. While it isn't known yet if Universal plans on expanding the biopic's theater count even more, its current theater count, and the lack of any sort of buzz from its competitors, »

Updated: Read the critics' verdicts on Benedict Cumberbatch's radical reinvention of Hamlet, post-press night

As Shakespeare himself might have exclaimed: "Huzzah!" Thanks to the presence of a certain film and TV megastar, the Barbican's latest production of Hamlet has eclipsed everything else in Theatreland ever since it was first announced back in March 2014.

And don't worry: despite a mixed response from the critics on - and before - press night, Digital Spy can confirm it's both extraordinary and unmissable. But more importantly, with Benedict Cumberbatch in it, along with elements linked to Game of Thrones and even The X Factor, it might just be the most DS-ish cultural event this year, seemingly laser-targeted to excite you. And here's why:

1. Benedict Cumberbatch is ace in it

25 August 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haley Bennett (The Equalizer) has landed a lead role in the upcoming film adaptation of The Girl On The Train.

Paula Hawkins wrote the best-selling novel of which the film is based, with Emily Blunt (Sicario) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) already cast in the other lead roles. Blunt plays Rachel, “a recent divorcee who narrates the tale and spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. One morning, she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds, involving the other two women.”

Bennett’s star is certainly on the rise after her role in Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer opposite Denzel Washington, as Fuqua added her to the impressive cast of his upcoming The Magnificent Seven remake opposite Washington and Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), and has now joined the »

Haley Bennett Rounds Out Lead Trio Of Women In 'The Girl On The Train'

25 August 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Emily Blunt is Rachel, "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation" breakout Rebecca Ferguson nabbed the role of Anne, and now Tate Taylor's ("The Help," "Get On Up") adaptation of the best-selling thriller "The Girl On The Train", has found its Megan. Deadline reports that rising star Haley Bennett ("The Equalizer," plus upcoming films from Terrence Malick and Warren Beatty) has joined the movie about a young woman whose observances on her daily commute take a sudden and deadly turn when she sees something not quite right. Here's the book synopsis:  Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. »

Paper Towns builds a flimsy number 1 position at the UK box office

25 August 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The coming-of-age drama benefits from extensive previews to claim pole position, while the summer as a whole sees a monster win for Jurassic World

For the second week in a row, Inside Out has been denied the top spot by an official chart champ boosting its “weekend” tally with hefty previews. A week ago it was Pixels that elbowed aside the Pixar hit, thanks to four extra days of takings. Now it’s the turn of Paper Towns, boosting the £744,000 it earned over the Friday-to-Sunday period with an additional £1.33m grossed on Monday to Thursday last week. Without that extra box office, Paper Towns would have landed in sixth place, behind Inside Out, Sinister 2, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, The Man from Uncle and Pixels. But with official takings of £2.07m, Paper Towns nabs the top spot. The chart win may not be deserved, but distributor Fox nevertheless has just »

The top 10 blockbusters of summer 2015

25 August 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Minions to Mad Max, and Ant-Man to Inside Out - our look at the finest ten blockbusters of summer 2015...

Summer blockbuster season finally draws to a close, with us mortal Brits gettings Hitman: Agent 47 this weekend. Then we're into September, and before you know it, those pesky Oscar prediction articles will have begun infecting the internet. So let's send off what's been a fairly decent summer season, with a countdown of our favourite films. Of course, feel free to tell us how wrong we are in the comments....

The Least Best

We don't really want to spend too many words digging over the corpses of films that have already been readily kicked to death, so we'll just nominate one film for the most disappointing of the summer.

With the proviso that we haven't seen Entourage, it'd have to be Terminator: Genisys. We appreciate many would opt for Fantastic Four here, »

Paul Haggis has weighed in on the Church of Scientology on numerous occasions, and now he has blasted the media for not pressing Tom Cruise to do the same during interviews promoting “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” As TheWrap exclusively reported in July, the movie star’s PR people actually prohibited news outlets from asking questions about his personal life and Scientology during his worldwide promotional tour for the fifth installment of the blockbuster franchise. “His PR people are very smart. But I don’t know how journalists can continue to call themselves journalists if they aren’t brave enough to ask a question, »

Lea Seydoux Offered Belladonna Boudreaux In 'Gambit'

25 August 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

...and then there was one. Earlier this month it was reported that  Lea Seydoux ("Spectre," "Blue Is The Warmest Color"), Rebecca Ferguson ("Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation"), and Abbey Lee ("Mad Max: Fury Road," "The Neon Demon") were all in the mix to join Channing Tatum in "Gambit." However, as August draws to a close, only one remains standing. Deadline reports that Seydoux has received the offer for the role of Belladonna Boudreaux in Marvel's next superhero movie. Rupert Wyatt will direct the pic about the Louisiana mutant, with Seydoux playing Gambit's longtime love, who has her own unique set of skills and also rolls with the Assassin's Guild. Presumably all will go well, and Seydoux will sign on. Production on the film begins this fall. "Gambit" opens on October 7, 2016. »

Palme d’Or Winner Léa Seydoux in Talks to Star in Gambit

25 August 2015 6:52 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After co-winning the Palme d’Or for her turn in the sultry French drama Blue Is the Warmest Color, Léa Seydoux doesn't seem to be having trouble landing roles in franchise blockbusters. The newest Bond Girl has now been offered the part of Bella Donna Boudreaux in the Channing Tatum–starring Gambit, according to Deadline. The role was highly sought-after, with Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation), and Seydoux on the short list; Ferguson dropped out to take a role in Tate Taylor’s The Girl on the Train, and the role went to Seydoux. Bella Donna, who also goes by Belladonna, Belle, and Bel, first appeared in X-Men in 1992. A childhood friend of Gambit and a deft assassin, she has similar energy-generating powers (though she doesn't throw playing cards at people). She eventually married the Cajun card-thrower before hiring someone to murder him. »

The Equalizer’s Haley Bennett Catches The Girl On The Train

25 August 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Tate Taylor (The Help) has secured his three leading ladies for the upcoming adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-seller The Girl On The Train, after Deadline broke that The Equalizer‘s Haley Bennett has joined the project to play the titular part.

Bennett joins Emily Blunt and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation‘s Rebecca Ferguson for the much-touted novel-to-screen translation, which has since drawn comparisons to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and its thriller tenets. Working from a screenplay produced by Erin Cressida Wilson, Taylor’s film centers around Bennett’s Rachel, an everyday commuter who tries to brighten up her trips to and from work by dreaming up a scenario for a seemingly idyllic suburban home.

Jess and Jason, as she refers to them, are a perfectly happy married couple living a life that she so longs for, but one morning when her train passes by their house she witnesses something bizarre – deadly, »
