Bill Nighy: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

5 February 2016 1:42 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

It’s thanks to Richard Curtis that Bill Nighy broke into the mainstream, after two decades spent languishing on TV, going from prestige drama to prestige drama in the hallowed halls of the Beeb where he was pretty much wasted.

He really broke out in Hollywood thanks to Richard Curtis making him the heart and soul of Love Actually, and in turn we’ve been gifted twelve years of aloof, dry-witted older gents and curt yet well-spoken villains.

Unfortunately, there are an alarming amount of instances where the character actor’s particular charms appear to be on autopilot and his performances sometimes have the tendency to fall a mite flat.

That’s not to say that we haven’t had our fair share of great Nighy performances; there are a few notable ones that don’t make this list, but are deserving of an honourable mention. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, »

The Real Marigold Hotel review – is India prepared for Miriam Margolyes and pals?

Eight famous pensioners living together in Jaipur, trying to decide whether they would like to retire there – it’s a lot more fun than the average travelogue

Eight celebrities, average age 70, meet at Heathrow. Oh, it’s you, from thingy, hello darling, mwa mwa, what fun. Not much recognition for poor Bobby George; I don’t think the others are darts fans. They’re going to India, to retire – or to see if they would like to retire there, like in the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. So this is The Real Marigold Hotel (BBC2).

It’s hot when they get to Rajasthan. And colourful. And the traffic is a little unruly. Such wonderful colours though. There’s a cow in the street. “Hi, holy cow,” says an excited Wayne Sleep.

First Poster For Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg Arrives

22 January 2016 7:36 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The first poster for Disney’s The Bfg is here.

The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The Bfg” to life.

Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s The Bfg tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.

The Bfg (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the Bfg prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. »

Variety is reporting that Alison Pill (The Newsroom) has signed on to appear in Miss Sloane, the upcoming gun control drama from director John Madden (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).

Miss Sloane stars Jessica Chastain (Crimson Peak) as lobbyist seeking for tighter federal laws regulating firearms, who faces off against the powerful gun lobby.

The project – which is hugely topical, given President Barack Obama’s new push to curb gun violence – has been penned by first time screenwriter Jonathan Perera and is being produced by FilmNation and EuropaCorp.
