Hello! From Armageddon to Harry Potter, we salute the screen work of Mr Jason Isaacs...
This feature contains spoilers for Event Horizon and the Harry Potter films. This spoiler warning contains spoilers for the list.
Hello to Jason Isaacs! Through roles in an impressive array of movies, from indies to massive blockbusters on both sides of the pond, he's become one of our favourite character actors. We've found that no matter how the film turns out, you can guarantee that if he's in it, his performance is going to be one of the highlights.
Off-screen, Isaacs has a whole other profile of popularity. Out of several prominent celebrity fans of Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo's film review show on BBC Radio 5 Live, he's the patron saint of their “church of Wittertainment”, and “hello to Jason Isaacs” is the show's first, most popular catchphrase.

Hoping for a fresh start, a widower and his 17-year-old son move from a small northern California town to Los Angeles, where a new job, a new school, a wry old friend and two extraordinary women play a transformative role in the reshaping of their lives.
Fortitude is handling international rights to the film in Cannes.
The comedy drama is written and directed by Kurt Voelker (Sweet November, Park) and produced by Matthew Baer (Unbroken, Maggie, City By The Sea), George Parra (Joy, The Descendants, Silver Linings Playbook), and Windowseat Entertainment’s Joe McKelheer (Barely Lethal, The Hammer) and Bill Kiely (Chasing Giants,

Also vague is a report from The Wrap that Leonardo DiCaprio will reunite with Revenant scribe Mark L. Smith for Conquest — a project about which nothing else (save for the involvement of Paramount and producer John Davis) is known. But there you have it.

It’s never nice to be disappointed by a reliable or well loved actor, but even Hollywood royalty have their bad days. Most viewers cringed at Leo DiCaprio’s uniquely ill conceived turn in notorious cult flop The Beach, while many fans will never forgive Charlize Theron for Sweet November. Luckily, this sort of regrettable surprise is rare. After all, a decent hit-maker in Hollywood can usually be depended on to make savvy career choices and to light up screens with their talent.
Sometimes an even rarer phenomenon occurs, though, in the form of a much more welcome surprise. A terrible actor, universally panned and relied on to produce material that’s trite at best and unwatchable at worst, will pleasantly shock audiences with a memorable and commendable performance.
At such a potentially career-defining moment, a flailing actor’s future rests tenuously on the brink of greatness. It can go either way.
His first film since that ill-advised 2001 remake of Sweet November, which sought to rekindle interest in possible on-screen chemistry between Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves, Irish director Pat O’Connor revisits darker, historical themes with Private Peaceful, a WWII tale as told through the eyes of two brothers from Devon. It’s perhaps the most serious subject O’Connor has tackled since some of his more celebrated 80s titles, like the Ira romance thriller Cal (1984) which nabbed Helen Mirren one of her two Best Actress wins at Cannes. And yet, while it’s great to find O’Connor avoiding the type of soapy schmaltz he careened into during his last several features, his dip into the over explored WWII era never manages to register as emotionally, thematically, or narratively resonant.
Private Tommo (George MacKay) sits in a British army cell,
Since making his debut in 1985, Reeves has climbed the ranks to become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, with movies that range from comedy to sci-fi, from romance to Shakespeare.
To mark Reeves's milestone, Digital Spy has selected just five of his finest performances from The Matrix to Bill & Ted.
1. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)
'Wooaah'. After a handful of roles on TV and the big screen, Keanu got his mainstream break in this surprisingly awesome sci-fi comedy. Opposite Alex Winter as Bill, he was perfectly cast as the air-headed heavy metal-lover Ted. Its sequel Bogus Journey has also become a cult classic, and a third movie has long been mooted. It's a shame that he hasn't shown off his comedy chops on a more regular basis.
2. Point Break (1991)
Reeves achieved full heartthrob status
The World War I drama, based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, is directed by Pat O’Connor (“Sweet November”). The all-British cast includes Jack O’Connell (“Unbroken”) and George MacKay (“How I Live Now”).
The film will have a national release in the fall.
“On the heels of our World War I commemorative screening campaign in August, we are continuing to bring captivating films with exceptional storytelling from across the pond to the big screen,” said Soumya Sriraman of BBC.
Morpurgo’s novel, published in 2003, is a followup to his 1982 novel “War Horse,” which served as the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 2011 movie.
“Private Peaceful” begins in rural England in 1908 and ends in the First World War trenches of Europe. MacKay and O
Still, as often as you've traveled back in time and revisited the "Excellent Adventure," there's probably still plenty you don't know about the movie, including where it was filmed (hint: Not in San Dimas, California), which historical figures almost found their way into the film,
Back In The Day is the first feature film written and directed by Rosenbaum. He also stars in the film alongside Morena Baccarin Harland Williams, Sarah Colonna, Nick Swardson and Isaiah Mustafa. The film was acquired by Screen Media Films in early October, and will be making it’s way to theaters on January 17, 2014. Can’t wait that long? Well, you are in luck!
Khloe Kardashian, 29, and Lamar Odom, 34, have begun spending time together again after being separated for weeks. Besides going on their first date on Oct. 28 since Lamar moved out, or having a romantic dinner and sleepover for Lamar’s birthday on Nov. 5, they reportedly went to see a marriage counselor — which is perhaps the most meaningful thing they could do together.

After being separated for weeks, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have begun spending time together again — a sign that he may be turning the corner. And on Nov. 8 there appeared to be another sign of reconciliation when Khloe Instagrammed a huge bouquet of flowers. Were they from Lamar?

Khloe posted the picture of the flowers — not just a dozen, more like four or five dozen of dark pink, light pink, and white roses — along with the caption, “Sweet November.”
