Watch: First Trailer For 'A Royal Night Out' Starring Sarah Gadon, Emily Watson, Jack Reynor, And More

A movie that for a long time seemed stuck in development with folks like Dakota Fanning, Juno Temple, Olivia Williams, Paddy Considine, and Jeremy Irvine attached at various points, "A Royal Night Out" eventually rolled in front of cameras with a no less promising ensemble of actors. And the result looks like a pretty frothy little period piece that's a bit of spirited fun. Julian Jarrold ("Kinky Boots," "Becoming Jane," "Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974") directs Sarah Gadon, Bel Powley, Emily Watson, Rupert Everett, and Jack Reynor in this comedy that takes place just at the close of World War II, and follows the teenage Princess Margaret and the future queen of England, Elizabeth II as they are granted one night from Buckingham Palace to join a celebrating London. And of course, comedic misadventure follows as they step out of the royal world they've always known

The Red Riding Trilogy – a pitch black and unforgetable tour de force

Red Riding: In The Year of Our Lord 1974 / 1980 / 1983

Directed by Julian Jarrold / James Marsh / Anand Tucker

Written by David Grisoni (from the novels by David Peace)

2009, UK

There’s a much quoted line from David Fincher’s Seven, found in one of many notebooks scribbled by horrific serial killer John Doe, that reads: “Long is the way, and hard, that out of hell leads up to light”. The sentiment and association is very appropriate when musing on the visceral sledgehammer assault on emotions, morality and senses represented by David Peace’s Red Riding series, a sprawling nine year epic of neo-noir, adult fear and a simmering stew of all forms of human evil. Brought to the screen in the form of a condensed movie trilogy (the second novel, 1977, is sacrificed) by the hand of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas writer Tony Grisoni, adaptation does not spell compromise on style or content.

Andrew Garfield turns 30: 5 best pre-Spider-Man roles

Andrew Garfield turns 30: 5 best pre-Spider-Man roles
It's fair to say that Andrew Garfield has inhabited the role of Spider-Man to an impressive extent. After he was first announced as the frontman for Marc Webb's reboot, he appeared in character at Comic-Con to make a heartfelt speech about what the character meant to him, and made a return appearance in Hall H this year.

So don't get us wrong: we are big fans of Garfield as Spidey. But it's been more than two years since he had another film out, and there's nothing but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the horizon until 2015, when he's lined up a role in Martin Scorsese's period drama Silence. But for now, we've got Garfield withdrawal.

To celebrate Garfield's 30th birthday, we look back on the five most significant roles from his pre-webslinging days.

Boy A (2007)

Garfield earned a TV BAFTA for his achingly moving breakthrough performance in John Crowley's drama,

Taylor Kitsch Targets A Killer In Horror Thriller Exit 147

Because of movies like Battleship, John Carter and The Savages, I will shudder at the sight of Taylor Kitsch.s name for at least the next five years. Granted, I didn.t watch Friday Night Lights, so I.ve never experienced the power of the Kitsch bandwagon. All I.ve seen are his feature-length films, and they.ve been abysmal, so I.m cautious about Exit 147 right off the bat. The horror site Bloody Disgusting reports that Kitsch has signed on as the lead for Exit 147, which Julian Jarrold will direct. Kitsch will play a small-town sheriff who arrests a stranger who is speeding through the desert. But getting detained is all part of the man.s sadistic game, and now Kitsch.s lawman has to play along if he wants to prevent more tragedy. Jarrold previously helmed Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974, so very few

Rebecca Hall: The New Iron Lady of 'Iron Man 3'?

Will Ms. Hall meet Mr. Stark?

The "Frost/Nixon" beauty has been offered the role recently vacated by Jessica Chastain in "Iron Man 3," according to Heat Vision.

The role has been described as a "sexy scientist" who goes toe-to-toe with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), but insiders say that it's a supporting role at best. The female lead in "Iron Man 3" will apparently be Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), who will reportedly have a much larger role in this film now that she's Stark's official love interest and business partner.

Hall would be joining a cast that includes Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley, who are currently in different stages of negotiations to play the film's villains. Don Cheadle will also be reprising his role as James 'Rhodey' Rhodes/War Machine.

Rebecca Hall is certainly no stranger to keeping company with superheroes. She appeared in "The Town" with Ben Affleck

The Sean Bean Death Video Reel

  • HeyUGuys
If you look at Hollywood actors that dies a lot in movies, Sean Bean must be up there with one of the highest death counts going! If you see a movie or TV series with him in, more than likely he’ll be dead before the credits begin to roll!

Our favourite video editing maestro, Harry Hanrahan (who’s previous work you can catch here) has been at it again and has compiled a rather gory collection of scenes in which we get to see Mr. Bean (not that one) die over and over again.

I’ve placed the list of movies in which you get to see here below courtesy of Pajiba who hosted the video in the first place.

Please note, this video is rather gory in places.

The Sean Bean Death Reel

  • Pajiba
Everyone knows that Sean Bean is, in fact, the balls. In addition to being Boromir, Ned Stark, and 006, the man has had unnumerable classic roles, yet has flown mostly under the radar for much of his career. But if you need a tough but good looking dude to glower menacingly and hurt people, either for the angels or the devils, then Sean Bean is your man.

The downside is that, well, he dies a lot. A Lot. It's like he entered the extra lives code and is determined to use every single last damn one of them. And thus, the wickedly brilliant Harry Hanrahan has given us this most precious of gifts -- an entire video dedicated to nothing but Sean Bean death scenes. It should go without saying that spoilers abound, so beware -- it's basically an entire video of spoilers. But it is so worth your while. Trust me on this.

10 great upcoming British actors

The UK may be struggling to keep up with the rest of the world in the arena of football, but we’re at least producing some top quality actors. Here’s Matthew’s pick of upcoming talent…

In a review I read for the BBC film, Dive, it stated, "It is lucky that, at a time when we are failing miserably to produce young footballers, we are producing such wonderful young actors." I'm not exactly sure why one would make up for the other, but I agree with the assertion. We have some great young actors and our young footballers are rubbish. For me, that's the best way round, though.

Here's a list of ten young British actors whom I expect to be making big moves in the world of entertainment in the near future, if they aren't already. The list is based on some completely subjective criteria such as talent,
