Incident with King the tiger during Ang Lee's Oscar-winning production one of many flagged up in alarming investigation of animal protection monitoring in Hollywood
The Bengal tiger used in the Oscar-winning film Life of Pi almost drowned on set in an incident subsequently covered up by the Us body charged with ensuring animal safety in Hollywood, according to a new report.
An American Humane Association (Aha) official revealed the near-disaster in an email leaked as part of an extensive Hollywood Reporter investigation into the film industry's treatment of animals.
"Last week we almost fucking killed King in the water tank," wrote monitor Gina Johnson. "This one take with him went really bad and he got lost trying to swim to the side. Damn near drowned." She added: "I think this goes without saying but don't mention it to anyone, especially the office! I have downplayed the fuck out of it. »

In the current era of The Avengers and Batman Vs. Superman, it’s impossible to be a fan of the comic-book genre and not have a well-considered argument to the question, “Who’s the Most Powerful Superhero?” Superman, of course, is the most obvious answer in any superpower battle-royale debate, but there are strong and more interesting claims to be made for the others, too. (Except Hawkeye. Sorry, guy.)
In Hollywood offices, there are similar conversations going on all the time about their own legion of superheroes, those famous actors and actresses who can open a movie in New York, »

Matilda, the Royal Shakespeare Company's megahit musical, will be made into a film – though not until the end of the decade.
Roald Dahl's story of a precocious schoolgirl hit the big screen in a 1996 film directed by Danny DeVito, who also played Matilda's father, Mr Wormwood. Now, playwright Dennis Kelly, who wrote the book for the stage show, is said to be starting work on a screenplay next year.
"It'll be different from what we did on stage," Warchus told the Daily Mail, "Matilda's imagination lends itself very much to film. We can open up her amazing acrobat stories and there will be the conundrum of trying to capture the naughtiness and anarchy of the stage version. »

When Steven Spielberg handpicks an actor to hang an entire movie on, there are great expectations placed upon their performance and subsequent success. Luckily for us all, Jeremy Irvine's post-War Horse career has been as gripping and exciting as his Oscar-nominated, tear-inducing film debut.
Following the little-seen, but simply wonderful, Now Is Good, Irvine stars as Pip in Mike Newell's retelling of Shakespeare's Great Expectations. And while the film is set in the 1800s, there's a marvelous modernity infused throughout that elevates it above your standard classic literary adaptation. ETonline chatted with the rising star about taking on this iconic role, how he brought something new to the seventh version of Pip and which of his upcoming roles he's most excited for audiences to see.
