Video Leaks That Reveals Mark Strong May Be in James Bond 25
With Daniel Craig finally confirmed to return as 007 in James Bond 25, there have been casting rumors swirling for other roles about to be cast, with the latest rumor claiming that Helena Bonham Carter is the studio's top choice to play the main villain in the highly-anticipated sequel. Today another rumor has surfaced, with a now-deleted Instagram video from a noted personal trainer that seems to indicate Mark Strong is currently in training for a role in James Bond 25. While the video has since been deleted, it featured a number of hashtags including #JamesBond, #Bond25 and #007, which hinted that Strong was training for an unspecified role in James Bond 25.

Kingsman Star Mark Strong Might Have A Role In Bond 25

Beyond the fact that Daniel Craig’s returning once again as 007, no official casting announcements have been made about the upcoming Bond 25, as directed by Danny Boyle. Helena Bonham Carter was rumored to be playing the villain of the piece, but that’s about all we know. That being said, a now deleted video on Instagram has unveiled another British star who looks to be joining the film.

Personal trainer Giacomo Farci shared a clip of Mark Strong, next seen in DC’s upcoming Shazam!, getting into shape on his Instagram account. While that didn’t tell us anything, his tags for the video revealed all, as he captioned the post with “#jamesbond,” “#bond25,” and “#007.” Adding credence to the theory that Farci told us something he shouldn’t, the video has since been taken down.

Though we’re not meant to know this yet, the fact that Strong’s

James Ivory Wants to Bring Daniel Day-Lewis Out of Retirement

No, Daniel Day-Lewis is not backing out of his retirement from acting, but if it was up to James Ivory, he would be. In a recent conversation with Film Comment, the 90-year-old director and Oscar-winning Call Me By Your Name scripter explained that he’s “been thinking about doing an adaptation of the novel Coral Glynn by Peter Cameron, which I’d like to direct, set in England in the 1950s.” He continued, “There is a sharp detective in the story which would suit Daniel Day-Lewis, just as there are very good parts for Helena Bonham Carter, Julian Sands, and Rupert Graves, now all in their fifties.” While Carter, Sands, and Graves are all still working, it seems ambitious to recruit Daniel Day-Lewis, who announced last year that his role as Reynolds Woodcock in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread would be his last.

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Screenwriter James Ivory Wants Daniel Day-Lewis to Come Out of Retirement for His Next Film

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Screenwriter James Ivory Wants Daniel Day-Lewis to Come Out of Retirement for His Next Film
James Ivory became one of the most acclaimed writer/directors of his generation after making such films as “A Room with a View” and “The Remains of the Day,” but it wasn’t a Merchant Ivory film that won him an Oscar. That would be “Call Me by Your Name,” the screenplay for which Ivory adapted from André Aciman’s novel of the same name. Now 90, he has his sights set on at least two new projects — and wants Daniel Day-Lewis to come out of self-imposed retirement for one of them.

Ivory is currently writing “The Judge’s Will,” based on longtime collaborator Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s short story of the same name, for director Alexander Payne; he isn’t content to simply write, however: “I’d also been thinking about doing an adaptation of the novel ‘Coral Glynn’ by Peter Cameron, which I’d like to direct, set in England in the 1950s,

Rihanna Finally Addresses Her Wine Glass Stealing Habit and We Can't Stop LOLing

As one of the eight leading ladies of Ocean's 8, Rihanna helps to pull off an audacious jewel heist at the most fashionable event of the year, the Met Gala. But us devoted followers of Ri-Ri already know that off-screen, too, our girl isn't averse to pulling off some (albeit lower key) little heists of her own — we're talking, of course, about the singer and part time actress meme-friendly penchant for walking out of a club, restaurant, or even a fashion show with a wine glass in hand. What happens to these wine glasses? Are the club owners a little perturbed that Rihanna has walked off with their crystal wear, or do they instead embrace it as a brilliant photo opportunity? And does Ri-Ri have a shelf devoted to these ill-gotten glass trophies, much like a kleptomaniac university undergraduate would have? (Photo Credit: Getty Images) When Rihanna appeared on the

Helena Bonham Carter Says She’s Not Ready For The Crown Season 3 Yet

Helena Bonham Carter’s set to step into the shoes of Vanessa Kirby as Queen Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret in the upcoming third season of Netflix’s acclaimed royal drama The Crown. Seeing as Kirby recently won a BAFTA for her performance, Carter has her work cut out for her in making her own mark on the character, but it turns out she’s leaving it to the last minute to prepare for the role.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show to promote her latest movie, Ocean’s 8, Carter revealed that she’s not prepped for playing Margaret yet – even though she starts filming The Crown in just a couple of weeks. She also joked that the toughest part about nailing the role is that she’ll have to make sure she sounds posh enough, with the actress saying:

Awkwafina: ‘I was always the crazy one, the funny one. I’d do anything for a laugh’

When she’s starring alongside Sandra Bullock in Ocean’s 8 or rapping about her vagina on YouTube, she’s Awkwafina. But at home she’ll always be Nora Lum from Queens

The front desk clerk at the Beverly Hills Hotel is polite but puzzled. “Nora Lum? No, we have no one staying here of that name.” How about Awkwafina, I ask, spelling it out for him. He looks at me as though he thinks I might be messing with him. “Sorry, madam,” – is that a note of relief in his voice? – “no one of that name either.” I reach for my phone, but then I have an idea. Sandra Bullock? Suddenly I have the attention of all three front desk clerks. “This way, madam.”

“Who the fuck is Awkwafina? That’s everyone’s reaction,” laughs Nora Lum/Awkwafina (pronounced Aquafina) when I eventually find her. She and Bullock – or “Sandy

Ocean’s 8 review – all-girl gang doesn’t quite deliver the goods

Serious star power and slick direction can’t make up for an ensemble cast’s failure to gel

This all-girl riff on Steven Soderbergh’s deliciously slick Oceans trilogy is a fun-enough spin-off that centres around a revenge heist orchestrated by Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), sister of George Clooney’s Danny. Her team comprises Ocean’s partner, a has-been, tax-evading fashion designer, a diamond expert (Mindy Kaling), stoner-hacker “Nine Ball” (a drily hilarious Rihanna), a pickpocketing, motormouthed teenager (comedian Awkwafina) and Sarah Paulson’s bored stay-at-home mum as the “fence” or go-between. Their plan is to steal a Cartier necklace from the unsuspecting neck of Bambi-eyed actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) at the Met Gala and pin the blame on Debbie’s art dealer ex-boyfriend.

Some things work well, such as Hathaway, whose finely tuned facial expressions are the best thing about the film by a country mile; elastic smile and saucer eyes one minute,

This Is Exactly How Much You'll See of George Clooney's Danny Ocean in Ocean's 8

This Is Exactly How Much You'll See of George Clooney's Danny Ocean in Ocean's 8
Warning: Extremely mild spoilers for Ocean's 8 below!

The cast for Ocean's 8 is chock-full of A-listers - Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and more - but there's one actor who is noticeably absent from the all-star lineup: George Clooney. Although the Suburbicon director originated the role of heist mastermind Danny Ocean in the initial trilogy - Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Thirteen - the character has been killed off in the new spinoff, which it hinted at in the movie's thrilling trailer.

The slick caper follows Danny's sister, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), as she devises a plan to pull off a jewelry heist at New York City's yearly Met Gala after being released from prison. With the help of her eclectic all-female crew, Debbie schemes to rob one celebrity (Hathaway) of her jaw-dropping $100-million necklace at some point throughout the event.
