Is there a better leading man working in Hollywood right now that can match Tom Hardy for his ability to transform and for the sheer screen presence he brings? Only truly breaking through to the mainstream in the last few years, having worked tirelessly since his Band of Brothers debut in 2001, Hardy has of late emerged as one of his generation’s best – if not its very best.
There are few performers of such range of whom it could be said they can play anything, but Hardy is unquestionably one such performer. In his short but illustrious career, the actor has played a Welsh construction worker, a gigantic super-villain, a gentle Brooklyn hoodlum, a thickly-accented Russian secret agent, a post-apocalyptic warrior, and a pretty boy dream thief, with all of those coming in the space of just five years.

Across film and TV, there have been many Star Trek projects that never got the greenlight. Such as these...
Since 1964 (yep) there have been Star Trek projects that simply didn't make it to the big or small screen. And before Star Trek's second (proper) coming in 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the franchise had more than its fair share of attempts to come to life, and then be reborn.
This lot in fact...
Star Trek – The (original) Original Series
The pilot that sold the show to NBC was in fact the second pilot, after the original, entitled The Cage, filmed at the end of 1964, was deemed too cerebral. That's on top of having other multiple issues that TV executives (and test audiences) of the time couldn't cope with – you know, like gender equality in the workplace. »
Decorated filmmaker Steven Spielberg behind the camera and Tom Hanks in front? It’s little wonder that Cold War espionage drama Bridge of Spies is garnering early buzz ahead of this year’s awards race. Boasting an abundance of Oscar-friendly tropes, Spielberg’s latest is based on the inspiring real events surrounding a Brooklyn lawyer (Hanks) who is tasked with venturing to the other side of the Iron Curtain to defend a wayward Kgb spy.
Acting against every fiber in his being, Hanks’ James Donovan is originally assigned to locate and free a captured America pilot, who crashed his U-2 airplane behind enemy lines. However, bartering with the Soviets during the height of the Cold War proved to be anything but easy.
Primed to release next month, Entertainment Weekly has today debuted a new trailer for Bridge of Spies, showcasing a layered, riveting drama that features an eye-catching turn by Hanks. »

Aside from supporting roles in Band of Brothers and evocative British realism drama Fish Tank, you’d be forgiven for not knowing who Michael Fassbender was prior to 2008. Less than a decade later, though, the German–Irish star has shouldered his way into Hollywood’s pantheon, and his stature will only continue to grow over the next two to three years thanks to roles in Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth – and indeed Assassin’s Creed – along with Ridley Scott’s sci-fi sequel, Prometheus 2.
Before all of that, however, Fassbender’s latest and much-talked about role will be playing the titular, flawed visionary for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic, and only today Universal has released a pensive new poster for the Oscar-tipped drama. It’s a beautifully clean, minimalist side-portrait of the lead character, which trumpets the film’s ensemble cast as much as it casts its protagonist in isolation. »

Fresh off a third Oscar nomination and a healthy haul of critics’ gongs for Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman,” Edward Norton isn’t so prize-hungry as to covet career honors like the Excellence Award presented to him Wednesday night at the Locarno Film Festival. “I tend to look at these things just as very nice compliments,” he says, his tone almost diffident, before passing the credit back to the festival itself, now in its 68th edition. “In its first year, Locarno showed Rossellini’s ‘Rome, Open City,’ and that’s still such a radical film. It’s flattering to be connected to that tradition of hosting and promoting cinema, even in a small way.”
Mike Shiner, the brilliant egomaniac thespian Norton played in Inarritu’s film, mightn’t have been so magnanimous. If there was a purported hint of self-parody to the performance, Norton’s persona — onscreen or off — has »

At first thought to be on track for seven seasons, HBO and showrunner duo David Benioff and Dan Weiss have informed fans of Game of Thrones that we can now expect eight seasons of the megapopular series based on George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. At least eight.
According to EW, at today’s TCA press tour, HBO boss Michael Lombardo also said he would (of course) be open to a prequel series if Weiss and Benioff were interested after Game of Thrones proper concludes. Personally, while I respect the idea of maintaining creative/visual continuity to a prequel, I’m not so sure I’d be put off with new takes in the setting.
For fans who cringe at the term “prequel” and who experience Grrm’s world only through the tv show, don’t worry, because Martin has published prequel material that’s »

Warning: contains major spoilers for Terminator: Genisys.
So, Terminator: Genisys is out, and it’s not doing too well with the critics (us included). Although review aggregators are by no means the be-all-and-end-all of film analysis, an average rating of 4.6 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes from nearly 200 reviews is still fairly bad going.
On the eve of the film’s global release, news came to light suggesting that a long-mooted Terminator TV series was still in development. As it stands, ‘two more movies and a TV series’ is the officially-announced plan surrounding the latest attempt to revive James Cameron’s classic sci-fi property.

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are at it again! The frequent collaborators (Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, Band of Brothers) have a Cold War drama on the horizon, called Bridge of Spies, and the trailer has just been released. Hanks plays James B. Donovan, an ordinary insurance lawyer from Brooklyn, NY, who is handpicked by the government to negotiate the release of a captured American pilot. Amy Ryan plays his wife, alongside costars Alan Alda, Scott Shepherd, and Billy Magnussen. Lest you write this off as just another historical drama, you should know that not only is the story inspired by true events, but the script was also cowritten by Ethan Coen and Joel Coen. Interested? The movie is out on Oct. 16, and you can watch the trailer below. Check out the first trailer, as well: »
Are our dreams of Idris Elba as the next James Bond shattered?
Maybe so, according to British bookmaker William Hill, which dramatically pushed up former "Homeland" star Damian Lewis on the list of potential new Bonds. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, Lewis's odds are at 3-1, close to favorite Elba's 5-2. That puts the "Band of Brothers" actor ahead of Tom Hardy (4-1), Henry Cavill (5-1), and Michael Fassbender (7-1).
The change in odds for Lewis comes out of nowhere, but then again, speculating on the next Bond is one of British movie fans' favorite pastimes. Elba's name has been in the mix for years - despite the fact that Daniel Craig is signed on for one more movie after this year's "Spectre."
If Lewis did win the role, he'd be the first ginger Bond in the franchise, which the actor joked about a couple of years ago, saying that »
