The top 25 secret agents in film

27 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

New character posters from Pan feature Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, Garrett Hedlund and Levi Miller

13 August 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The four main stars of the upcoming Peter Pan origin story Pan are front and center on new character posters for the film. The posters (via Fandango) show Levi Miller as Peter Pan, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard. See them all below…

Pan would already be in theaters if it had stuck to its original July release date, but Warner Bros. decided to push back the film to later in the year to escape a cluttered summer movie season.

Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures »

'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Is a Sly Spy Caper Starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer (Review)

10 August 2015 10:55 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With James Bond enjoying a surge in popularity, and a recent proliferation of spy yarns from "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" to "Kingsman," it seems a no-brainer to resurrect one of the most successful TV shows of the 1960s, which gave viewers two super-spies for the price of one — as well as one of that decade’s cleverest nods toward Cold War détente. Guy Ritchie, full of confidence after his "Sherlock" outings, has produced an apt calling card for helming 007 when Sam Mendes steps down after "Spectre." That’s if he doesn’t already have his hands full with an "U.N.C.L.E." franchise, which he well might. Though his leads need more screen time to fine-tune their chemistry, Ritchie has created a highly entertaining, tongue-in-cheek spy caper. Fans of the show will recall that the suave, womanizing American Napoleon Solo and intense Russian Illya Kuryakin (career-defining performances by »

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off.

The many faces of Benedict Cumberbatch: Mythical monsters, tragic heroes and supervillains

11 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch is a man of many guises. Since his meteoric rise in recent years, he is an actor that no one would dare accuse of being typecast, and in every new role he proves that there is nothing he can't do.

With Penguins of Madagascar recently arriving in Sky Store, we celebrate the many faces of Benedict Cumberbatch:

The wild animal (Classified - Penguins of Madagascar)

In Penguins of Madagascar, Cumberbatch gets a chance to show off his beastly side. We're not talking about him looking like an otter (not this time), but his role as Classified in the animated sequel.

He voices the grey wolf leader of the animal spy agency North Wind, who take in the four intrepid penguins when they find themselves lost on the streets and waterways of Venice.

The mythical monster (Smaug - The Hobbit trilogy)
