Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

10 Hardest Men That Ever Played For Arsenal

9 July 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Mike Egerton/Empics Sport

In the early years of the Premier League, having a hardman in your team was seen as a necessity. From Roy Keane to Stuart Pearce, the division was littered with players who prided themselves on their tough tackling and no nonsense approach. However, today such characters are a rarity.

Arsenal themselves have boasted several hardmen over the years. The start of Arsene Wenger’s reign was perhaps the dying embers of that type of player, with Tony Adams and co representing a throwback to the George Graham era.

Since then, it would be fair to say that the modern game has taken a shift. Out went the bruising tacklers and in came the tiki taka passers. It means we have witnessed less fighting and bone-crunching challenges, and more handbags and diving. A sight that must certainly infuriate Vinnie Jones and the rest of Wimbledon’s ‘Crazy Gang’.

20 Actors You Didn’t Know Almost Played X-Men

23 May 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is now in cinemas and fans are finally able to see what returning franchise supremo Bryan Singer has achieved in his quest to marry his own cast – so crudely abused in Brett Ratner’s X-Men: The Last Stand – with the exceptional prequel timeline cast introduced by Matthew Vaughn. Armed with one of the most enduringly popular comic book story arcs of all time as his source, and with an eye-watering amount of talent at his disposal, it’s no great surprise that the film has picked up phenomenal reviews – including our own four star rating – but as with the Avengers universe, things could have been very different.

If the actors who were either tentatively linked to roles in the X-Men movie world, or who pulled out or flat out refused the roles they were offered had made to the big screen we might not have »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2009

19 February 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 20 Feb 2014 - 05:40

The unloved films of 2009 provide the focus in our final list of the 2000s' overlooked greats...

The year 2009 will partly be remembered as the year Avatar dominating the box office, with audiences flocking to see James Cameron's leafy pulp epic in shimmering 3D. Making almost $2.8bn worldwide, Avatar was a true behemoth, besting Cameron's own Titanic as the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation) and hastening a rush of 3D films in the years that followed.

Films such as 2012, Sherlock Holmes and boozy comedy The Hangover were also among the top 10, but as always, some of the most memorable and individual films of the year were far from the most financially successful. So to round off our series of underrated flicks of the 2000s, here's our selection of 2009's overlooked films...
