Many happy returns to Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrates his 26th birthday today (July 23)! He may have made a name for himself as heroic wizard Harry Potter, but in the years since Deathly Hallows - Part 2, he's excelled in indie roles and displayed something of a flair for comedy.
To mark Daniel's big day, we look at nine times he's managed to tickle our funny bone...
1. Don't give up the day job, Daniel!
"I'm not Lauren, I'm like a cut-price much less efficient version of Lauren." Daniel gave the staff of Nylon magazine something of a surprise when he took on an emergency shift behind the front desk. The whole thing was filmed, with a bewildered Daniel struggling with deliveries, pick-ups and what to do with Joe Jonas. Bring back Lauren!
2. Rapping 'Alphabet Aerobics' by Blackalicious
Who'd have thought Daniel was a big rap fan? During an appearance on The Tonight Show »

For many years British horror brand Hammer Films lay seemingly dormant, its blood curdled and its back catalogue of famous monsters consigned to nostalgia territory. However today the studio coffin is open for business, down in no small part to the success of 2012’s The Woman In Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe. Using the classic novella by Susan Hill as a starting point, it was the perfect Gothic chiller with which to help revive their fortunes.
Of course Hammer were never ones to shy away from a sequel, and just as the late, great Christopher Lee put in numerous appearances as Dracula, so the ghostly “heroine” has been »

Spooky sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death is out to buy this week. One of the noteworthy aspects on the disc is an interview with Jeremy Irvine, the film’s male lead and an up-and- comer who is being watched with great interest.
Thn parted the ether for a chat with Jeremy about the world of Gothic horror, his surprising personal connection to the character and what it’s like to step through the infamous doors of Hammer Studios…!
Thn: Tell us a bit about your character in the film.
Jeremy Irvine: I play Harry. He is, or he appears to be, an Raf bomber pilot… but like all the characters in the film he has his own ghosts and demons, and isn’t quite who he appears to be. At the beginning he’s like the archetypal young hero airman, but then all is not quite what it seems. »

Being an in-demand name naturally means he has a few irons in the fire, the hottest of which is Stonewall, director Roland Emmerich‘s dramatization of the famous riots that had a profound impact on the way the gay community were perceived in the late Sixties.
It’s a project that’s clearly close to Jeremy’s heart and he gave us his views toward the tail end of our interview:
Thn: What have you got coming up next?
Without generalizing, that sounds like quite an unusual subject matter for Roland Emmerich. I guess he »

Time for a little mid-year check on the Where Are the Women? project, U.K. edition. (See here for the U.S. version. The numbers are almost identical.)
From January through the end of June, 2015, there have been 79 films that have had wide releases in the United Kingdom. (This list includes a few films that opened at the very end of December 2014 and so had the vast majority of their runs in 2015.) These films are, in rough order of release:

Looking for a good book recommendation? Our writers have a few unsung sci-fi, fantasy and horror gems up their sleeves...
Other people. What’s the point of them? They’re noisy and everywhere.
There is one thing they’re especially good at, however, and that’s recommending new stuff. In the spirit of that, we asked our writers to recommend great books that, for whatever reason, haven’t been surrounded by as much fuss and recognition as they deserve.
Nominations came in for personal favourites in fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and graphic novels, so we’ve divided them up into a series of features, the first of which is below, on great unsung sci-fi, fantasy, horror and thriller adult fiction.
Our hope is that you’ll demonstrate your worth as other people by carrying on the recommendations in the comments section below. Thanks in advance.

It’s been three years since U.K. industry veteran Will Clarke launched Altitude Film Entertainment, and in that time, the production-sales-distribution outfit has learned how to navigate a changing market and, more importantly, established a successful business model to do just that. Starting with a team of just three — Clarke jointly launched the company with former Exclusive Media managing director Andy Mayson and former Pathe Intl. sales exec Mike Runagall — the shingle now employs a team of 15, and has been involved in just shy of 30 movies, four of which it has steered into production.
It’s bringing a number of films to Cannes, including Gemma Arterton and Glenn Close starrer “She Who Brings Gifts”; Vincenzo Natali’s “In the Tall Grass,” based on a novella by Stephen King and Joe Hill; and WWII thriller “Anthropoid,” starring Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy. Black comedy “Kill Your Friends,” starring Nicolas Hoult, »

Cinema has long had an obsession with the undead. Everything from zombies to vampires to mummies have taken their fair share of turns on the big screen. These are all fine and have all had their truly terrifying moments, but nothing compares to good old-fashioned ghosts.
Where would horror movies be without ghosts? Nowhere good, that’s for sure. They have come in a variety of forms over the years, looking (almost) like normal people in Ghost and Beetlejuice, demonic corpses in The Conjuring and The Woman in Black, and semi-transparent blob-like shapes in Ghost Busters. Some movie ghosts can’t even be seen, like those in Paranormal Activity and The Amityville Horror, but that doesn’t make them any less menacing.

When Guy East and Nigel Sinclair launched their new company, White Horse Pictures, just one year ago ahead of the Cannes Film Festival, it was a more modest iteration of the successful partnership they ran for years at Exclusive Media. That international sales and financing company, which they founded, was behind such hits as “Snitch,” “The Woman in Black” and “End of Watch” but also the money-losing “Rush.” Now working as producers rather than financiers, Sinclair sat down exclusively with TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman at the Studio Canal offices overlooking the port at the festival to look ahead at an upcoming. »

Even though Daniel Radcliffe may not be doing magic anymore, that hasn't stopped him from dabbling in the supernatural still. The actor has gone on to star in the gothic horror The Woman in Black and the bold fantasy thriller Horns, and now he's heading into familiar classic territory with Victor Frankenstein, which puts a new spin on Mary Shelley's original novel. James McAvoy plays the title doctor known for bringing a dead man back to life, and Radcliffe plays his sidekick Igor, without that trademark hump. Some first look photos have surfaced from the set, though they show the production as opposed to the story. Here's our first look at Paul McGuigan's Victor Frankenstein from Empire: Victor Frankenstein is directed by Paul Mcguigan ("Sherlock") and written by Max Landis (Chronicle). Inspired by Mary Shelly's classic tale, but told from Igor’s (Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter) perspective, »

Warner’s direct-to-video “Batman Vs. Robin” was the best-selling newcomer the week ending April 19, bowing at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
But in overall disc sales, the animated “DC Universe Original Movie” was trumped by another Warner title, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” which regained the top spot on Nielsen’s First Alert chart after spending two weeks at No. 2.
“Interstellar,” the Paramount sci-fi epic that occupied the No. 1 spot for the last two weeks, slipped to No. 3 on First Alert.
Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart: Walt Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” repeating at No. 4, and 20th Century Fox’s “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,” a horror sequel that bowed at No. 5.
