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 »

About a year ago, Universal Pictures announced that it's moving forward with a "Kojak" movie, based on a 1970s television series and cast Vin Diesel to play the lead role. Diesel has now updated his Facebook page with news that the studio may have found a director for the film. "Kojak... New York... Ang Lee..." the actor wrote. While that's far from a confirmation, it looks like there are at least talks with the "Life of Pi" helmer. "Kojak" TV series, which ran from 1973 to 1978, focused on a tough-talking New York cop, played by Telly Savalas. The script is written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Skyfall, Casino Royale). »
Duncan Jones, the director of Moon and Source Code, and son of David Bowie, has had to bow out of an upcoming biopic about James Bond creator Ian Fleming. See, he was attached to direct the film after completing his big screen adaptation of World of Warcraft, however, with the latest shake-ups in that production’s timeline, he’s had to leave Fleming. The video game adaptation, Warcraft, is going to keep him busy for the next two years and the folks behind Fleming don’t want to wait that long. Perhaps in an effort to capitalize on the success of Skyfall, which was the highest-grossing Bond film to date, the producers are now in a mad dash to find a director that’s ready to hit the ground running.
The movie will be based on a biography of the late Fleming that was written by Andrew Lycett. It’s »

Announced to star Vin Diesel as the title character last year , Universal Pictures' Kojak looks like it may have found a helmer in Life of Pi director Ang Lee. "Kojak. New York. Ang Lee." Diesel posted to his Facebook wall moments ago in response to a fan's question about what director he'd like to work with in the future. Although it's entirely possible that Diesel is merely pointing out his top choice, to specifically name Kojak as the project coupled with the fact that the film has not yet announced a director suggests that Diesel's dream is about to come true. Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade ( Skyfall ) are providing the screenplay to the television series adaptation. The original show, which ran on CBS from 1973 to 1978, starred Telly »
Ralph Fiennes been on a roll lately. As well as portraying Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise, he's also starred in Skyfall, as well as directing an acclaimed version of Shakespeare's Coriolanus. So that's two billion dollar movies and a great directorial debut - something few actors, if any, have accomplished.
Now, for his follow up to Coriolanus, he's taking on Charles Dickens. But instead of adapting a Dickens book, he will be focusing on the writer himself and the story of his mistress, Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones), with The Invisible Woman, which has received a new poster and trailer; check them out here...
Nelly, a happily married mother and school teacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, provoked by remorse and guilt, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. Dickens - famous, »

Skyfall—the 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise—was the highest-grossing Bond film ever and the eighth-highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation). It was the biggest film ever released in the UK.
For many critics, director Sam Mendes’ Bond was one of the most cerebral and most beautifully filmed offerings in the franchise. Fans also appreciated the ways in which Skyfall built on the Bond franchise but continued to pave a new direction forward. The elements that we know and love in any Bond film—the recognizable opening action sequence, the emblematic opening song and titles, gadgets, excellent chase scenes, a stellar villain, a ‘Bond girl,’ and the global trekking of Bond—will, to some extent or another, be present in Bond 24. Skyfall used all of these recognizable Bond elements but notably modified a number of them, which perhaps led to the film’s popularity with both critics and fans. »

Good things come to those who wait. For Judi Dench that good thing would be movie stardom. She's been acting on stage since 1957 (as Ophelia in Hamlet at the age of 23), on tv since 1959 (the title role in Hilda Lessways), and on the silver screen since 1964 (The Third Secret)... but it wasn't until 1997/1998 when Dench hit her sixties that true movie stardom happened, prompted by the double whammy of her first Oscar bid (Mrs Brown) and its follow up "oops sorry about last year" Oscar win for Shakespeare in Love (recently discussed). Isn't her career trajectory unheard of? Who doesn't even start being a movie star until their sixties? Dame Judi thats who.
Though she may soon retire (she's turning 80 a year from now) she's still in her movie prime. Her latest starring role is as Philomena, the story of a woman seeking the grown son she gave up for adoption, »
