Ben Whishaw Replaces Colin Firth As Voice Of Paddington

18 July 2014 4:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This winter’s Paddington has received our attention for all the wrong reasons so far. First, there was that terrifying image of the film’s stuffed bear that sparked the hilarious Creepy Paddington meme. Then, The Weinstein Company released a disappointing first trailer for the movie that made it appear to be a spiritual – albeit less gratingly non-musical – cousin to Alvin and the Chipmunks, of all things. Finally, we learned that Colin Firth, who had previously been set to voice Paddington, had dropped out of the project mid-way through production. Luckily for TWC though, it doesn’t appear that the film will be delayed, as Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw has just been set to lend his voice to the animated bear.

Though the British actor is certainly less of a household name than Firth, Whishaw’s star has been steadily rising over the past few years. He’s won fans »

Matthew Vaughn: 'I was director of James Bond's Casino Royale for 24 hours'

25 June 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class's Matthew Vaughn has revealed that he was asked to direct the James Bond film Casino Royale.

Vaughn recently disclosed that he had talks with MGM about reuniting with his Layer Cake star Daniel Craig for the re-launch of the Bond franchise.

"I had a lot of meetings on Casino Royale," he told Empire.

The filmmaker added: "So much so that the head of MGM offered me it. I had a 24-hour period where I thought I was directing Casino Royale."

Vaughn added that it was "a bit of a downer" that the deal was never finalised, with Casino Royale's directing duties instead going to Martin Campbell.

The director is now tackling the spy genre with Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as a veteran secret agent introducing a young counterpart to the world of espionage.

Vaughn said of casting Firth as a »

Paddington Makes A Big Splash In New Trailer

12 June 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The hilarious new trailer for Paddington has arrived. (along with some pretty hilarious mock-horror memes that have gone viral.)

Paddington is adapted from Michael Bond’s books for children, which have been published in 40 languages and sold 35 million copies. The story is about a young bear from Peru who longs to visit England and decides to travel to London. He reaches the huge Paddington Station and realises he is lost and alone in a big city that was barely what he had expected, but a sympathetic family adopts him and he finds the peaceful haven he had dreamt about – until a taxidermist sets her sights on him.

The first ever live action film inspired by Bond’s best-selling books, stars BAFTA Award- nominee Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Iris, Notting hill) as Mr Brown, Academy Award-winner Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man, Bridget Jones’s Diary) as the »

First Pictures and Poster for Matthew Vaughn's 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'

20 May 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fox has revealed several pictures from their upcoming film Kingsman: The Secret Service (sounds like a direct to video junker) directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Layer Cake) and based on the comic from "Kick-Ass" creators, Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. The film follows Colin Firth, playing a veteran secret agent who leads a young protege into the shadowy business. Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine co-star. Vaughn spoke with EW about the film saying, "We missed all the spy movies we loved as kids, whether it was Bond or In Like Flint. They had a sense of humor as well as being a thriller... With Kingsman, we're subversing the spy movie genre as we know it." Vaughn said the idea of Kingsman camea about over a "few drunken conversations at the pub" with Millar. Great!

Ken Loach changes mind about filmmaking retirement

2 May 2014 6:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ken Loach has revealed that reports of his retirement are not entirely accurate.

Last year, the 77-year-old filmmaker was reported to be moving into making just documentaries following the release of his latest film Jimmy's Hall.

"This is probably the last narrative feature for Ken," said producer Rebecca O'Brien at the time. "There are a few documentary ideas kicking around, and that will probably be the way to go, but this is a serious period drama with a lot of moving parts so it's a big thing to put together. I think we should go out while we're on top."

However, Loach has now revealed that he has changed his mind in regards to his retirement from drama.

"I kind of thought I wouldn't get through another one just as we were beginning Jimmy's Hall because it's a moment of maximum pressure when you haven't shot a thing but you're knackered from all the prep, »

Under the Radar: Tom Hardy

22 April 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Today I’m going to be pressing on with another series for you all here at the site, one that I started last week. Basically, it’s a spinoff of the Spotlight on the Stars series. As a quick refresher, each week I look at an actor/actress/filmmaker that I’d like to celebrate in some kind of way. It could be due to something of theirs coming out that weekend (like in many of the cases so far, including today) or just because I feel they deserve to have a moment in the sun all their own, but each time it’ll be a bit of positivity about someone who I’d like to pay tribute to. Here though, I’m going to look at more of an under the radar individual as opposed to a tried and true star. For this week’s sophomore piece, I wanted »

Ken Loach's last film Jimmy's Hall - watch trailer

4 April 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first trailer has been released for Ken Loach's upcoming film Jimmy's Hall.

Based on a true story, the film is directed by Loach and written by Paul Laverty (Looking for Eric).

Jimmy's Hall stars Barry Ward (Songs for Amy), Simone Kirby (Season of the Witch), Jim Norton (American History X), Francis Magee (Layer Cake), Aisling Franciosi (The Fall), Andrew Scott (Sherlock) and Brian F O'Byrne (Million Dollar Baby).

Set in 1932, the film is centred around Jimmy Gralton, who returns to Ireland from New York after a decade away, having previously built a dance hall in the rural town.

Loach won the Cannes Palme d'Or in 2006 for The Wind that Shakes the Barley and won a career Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1994. »

'Constantine': First Official Image of Matt Ryan in Costume

13 March 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As production begins on the new pilot Constantine - from executive producers Daniel Cerone & David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall - NBC, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment are today releasing the first official image of series star Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine.

Here's what executive producer David S. Goyer had to say about this new version of the popular character in a statement.

"I've been a fan of John Constantine since he was first introduced in 1985. This Constantine, envisioned by Neil Marshall and embodied by Matt Ryan, looks like he sprang directly from the comics' covers. Fans old and new are going to be in for a treat."

Constantine follows enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.

Featured in hundreds of comic book issues, John Constantine has been a DC Comics »
