Adele won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for her iconic ballad "Skyfall" from last year's 007 blockbuster, but will Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" end her winning streak at the 56th Grammy Awards? Yes, it's unlikely, isn't it? Adele is royalty. She rarely loses. The 26-year-old Brit has already won nine Grammy Awards including a massive sweep of the major categories in 2012. Next month she'll go up against the "now you take me seriously" songstress Lana Del Rey in the always oddly dated Best Song Written for Visual Media category. Other contenders include Coldplay's "Atlas" from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" »

In issue 214 of Total Film magazine, Bond's brand new Miss Moneypenny, Naomie Harris, drops some tantalising hints about the future of 007. Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad, Harris reveals that her first Bond film, Skyfall, won't necessarily be her last, adding that Bond 24 could pick up threads left hanging by Skyfall. “I feel like Skyfall is one part of a continuing story," the 37-year-old Brit says. "It needs completing and it needs the same storyteller." With Sam Mendes on board to direct Bond 24, it...

I’m far from being the biggest Shakespeare scholar on the block, so having me review The Hollow Crown might not seem like the best idea at first blush. However, the beauty of this mini-series is how accessible it is to even those of us whose last brush with the playwright came during high school English. It helps that the cast is composed of up-and-coming faces of this generation of actors, alongside veterans of stage and screen who define the word gravitas and could probably do Shakespeare in their sleep. Much like the long-standing works of the English author himself, The Hollow Crown is equally enjoyable for neophytes making their introduction to Shakespeare or scholars looking for a new interpretation. Hit the jump for my review. Richard II Feature The first installment of the four-part series is adapted from Shakespeare’s “King Richard the Second”, centering on the English king »

Naomie Harris has stripped off in a new photoshoot for Esquire magazine.
The star spoke about a number of her recent acting roles for the special Film issue, including Skyfall and Nelson: Long Walk to Freedom.
Harris - who played Eve Moneypenny in the 2012 Bond film - said that she had expected the experience to be "intimidating".
"I thought it was going to be this intimidating, massive machine," she explained.
"A journalist once asked me, 'Who do you think is going to be the next Bond?' I said, 'I've just finished working with Idris so, if I had the chance, I would vote for him'.

Naomie Harris became a global star as the Bond girl in Skyfall, but her biggest challenge yet has been playing the controversial figure of Nelson Mandela's wife in the new biopic. Luckily, she says, her co-star was Idris Elba…
The first time I met Naomie Harris was in 2010 in a noisy cafe in Portobello Road, London. I thought then that she was the sort of girl you would have wanted to make your best friend if you had met her at school: warm, talkative, not at all puffed up and not dressed up either. I don't remember what she wore but it wasn't aiming to be memorable. The cafe was noisy so she suggested we talk in her nearby flat. She was best known then for her role in Pirates of the Caribbean and for television dramas (Clara in White Teeth, Hortense in Small Island). She was about to pull into the fast lane, »

James Bond and the Doctor don’t have very much in common. Bond is a violent British superspy. The Doctor is a pacifist alien traveler. Bond jets around to exotic locations and uses expensive gadgets; the Doctor spends a curious amount of time in Wales and uses semi-abstract technology that makes funny noises. Weirdly, if the two characters ever met, they would probably be enemies. Bond is the kind of guns-blazing loose »

Send the kids to Frozen and the adults to Homefront for a satisfying holiday weekend, says People's critic. Here's what to see and what to skip in movie theaters this Thanksgiving. See ThisFrozenA cast packed with Broadway vets delivers a Snow Queen update that should charm kids and adults alike. Girls are front and center in this Disney showcase, featuring sisters Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell), who are incredibly close until Elsa realizes that she can't control her magic freezing powers. A long estrangement is punctuated by bombastic songs that, while beautifully sung, tend to wear themselves out. »

(Cbr)Vin Diesel sure loves utilizing social media as a way to send his fans into a frenzy. He did it earlier this year when he first started talking about meeting with Marvel Studios. Now he’s doing much of the same with "Kojak". When asked by a fan on his Facebook page, “With what director would you like to work soon?” Diesel responded with five simple words: “Kojak… New York… Ang Lee…” While that might sound like a pie-in-the-sky comment, it is based in some fact: Toward the end of last year, Universal Pictures announced that "Skyfall" writers Neal Purvis and Robert »

Idris Elba is mostly known to American audiences for his role as Russell "Stringer" Bell in HBO's hit series "The Wire" and as the titular cop in the BBC drama "Luther" -- but that's starting to change. Earlier this month, he reprised his role as the hulking Asgardian gatekeeper Heimdall in Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," and he plays -- or, rather, embodies -- South African leader Nelson Mandela in the upcoming biopic "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," directed by Justin Chadwick ("The Other Boleyn Girl") and co-starring Naomie Harris ( "Skyfall").
In "Mandela," Elba tackles the icon's life, from his formative days as an anti-apartheid activist to his subsequent arrest, imprisonment, and groundbreaking election as president of South Africa.
Moviefone sat down with Elba earlier this month, just after the release of "Thor: The Dark World," and chatted with the actor about portraying an icon in "Mandela," his planned homecoming trip to Africa, »

Action star Vin Diesel remained busy prepping his adaptation of the popular TV cop drama Kojak with Skyfall co-writers Neal Purvis and Robert adapting the series created by Abby Mann. Empire reported that Diesel brought headlines to the project when he publicly expressed his desire to land two-time Oscar winner Ang Lee (Life of Pi, Brokeback Mountain) to helm the movie based on TV’s tough New York cop Lt. Theo Kojak, brought to life by Telly Savalas. »
The Skyfall filmmaker confirmed his involvement in the untitled Bond 24 earlier this year, after initially claiming that the prospect of directing another movie in the franchise left him feeling "physically sick".
Harris, who played Eve Moneypenny in Skyfall, and will be reprising the role in Bond 24, told Total Film: "I'm so relieved. He chose me and had a vision for my character. I'd feel really weird working for someone who hadn't chosen me and didn't have that same vision.
"I just want him to see it through. I feel like Skyfall is one part of a continuing story. It needs completing and it needs the same storyteller."
Bond 24 will reportedly see Harris's character feature in an expanded "sidekick" role.
Mendes recently directed the eight-part drama Penny Dreadful, which is due »
Philomena is the joyful movie of 2013.
The emotional story is inspired by true events, tinged with both tragedy and comedy, about two very different people who join forces for a remarkable road trip. They are seeking to uncover the truth behind a heartbreaking story that has remained a mystery for half a century.
Philomena Lee, an Irishwoman in her 70’s, became pregnant as a teenager in 1952. Her family abandoned her out of shame and sent her to a convent in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, where, along with other young girls in the same predicament, she was regarded as ‘a fallen woman’. In compensation for the nuns taking her in and looking after her during childbirth she was made to work in the laundry there and only allowed access to her young son, Anthony, for an hour a day. When he was only three Anthony was taken from the convent against her »

Between posting pictures from the set of Fast & Furious 7 and practicing stilts-walking for motion capture performing as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel has been busy giving his fans specials treats on Facebook. Now the actor has revealed a tidbit of potential news. Just before Christmas last year, we learned that Universal was developing a big screen adaptation of the 1970s crime drama series Kojak with Diesel taking the title role. The script was reported to come from Skyfall writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, but no director was attached at that point. But now we have an idea as to who might direct now. Taking to Facebook, Diesel mentioned a fan asked what director he wanted to work with in the future, and with an accompanying piece of artwork she made for the actor, he replied, "Kojak… New York…Ang Lee…" Now, the director of Life of Pi »
