Helen Mirren movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Queen,’ ‘Gosford Park,’ ‘Red’

Helen Mirren movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Queen,’ ‘Gosford Park,’ ‘Red’
It’s not uncommon for a prominent British actor to be labeled British acting royalty. All types, from Laurence Olivier to Maggie Smith, have worn the label but nobody perhaps has literally worn that title recently to the extent as Helen Mirren. She has had a long varied career and has earned her place as one of the holders of acting’s triple crowns by playing a variety of British monarchs.

Her Oscar came for playing the British Queen Elizabeth II in “The Queen,” which dealt with her reaction to the unexpected death of Princess Diana. She would revisit the role nine years later for a Tony on Broadway in the play “The Audience,” which dealt with Elizabeth’s relationships with the various prime ministers who have served under her. It was a different Queen, Elizabeth I, that would bring Mirren one of her four Emmys, when she starred in

The Kid Who Would Be King Trailer from the Director of Attack the Block

20th Century Fox has dropped the first trailer for The Kid Who Would Be King. There are several age-old stories that, for whatever reason, Hollywood will adapt over and over again, seemingly no matter what. Such is the case with the Arthurian legend, and here we have the latest big-budget big screen take on the tale. Though, admittedly, this looks pretty unique and comes with a major stable of talent attached. Not only does this serve as the long-awaited feature follow-up to Attack the Block for Joe Cornish, but the cast assembled in front of the camera is impressive as well.

The trailer starts us off with a kid trying to do the right thing in a world that is certainly very tough on kids in his shoes. Bullies will be bullies and that doesn't make his life easy. But then things get fantastical in a hurry when this unsuspecting 12-year-old finds Arthur's sword.

New Hellboy Nycc Poster Brings Blood Queen and Professor Broom to the Party

New Hellboy Nycc Poster Brings Blood Queen and Professor Broom to the Party
After unveiling an epic Hellboy poster earlier this week, the studio has released another for Nycc and it provides our first look at Professor Broom, the Blood Queen, Ben Daimio, and more. There has been a lot of talk about the reboot and what it will be like without Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman on board. While del Toro went with more of a fantasy feel, Neill Marshall has reportedly made a horror-based adaption that is completely different from what we've seen in the past.

Milla Jovovich previously shared some early promotional art, but her Blood Queen looks a lot different in the latest Hellboy remake poster. She's featured front and center, right below David Harbour's take on the demonic hero. The Blood Queen and Hellboy have fought many times in Mike Mignola's comics, so the remake is interesting for that fact alone. Ian McShane's Professor Broom,

It’s been a very long seven years since Joe Cornish blew us all away with his feature debut, Attack the Block.

He and his friends subsequently set about thwarting a medieval villain played by Rebecca Ferguson, and they receive help from none other than Merlin himself, played by Patrick Stewart.

This New Poster For Neil Marshall’s Hellboy Is Seriously Incredible

Hellboy is back, and by the looks of this just-released poster, in style.

I loved the Guillermo del Toro films and like many was incredibly skeptical when David Harbour was cast as the titular character. After all, how could anyone do the role better than Ron Perlman? Well, the jury’s still out on that one, but consider my reservations dialed back significantly after getting a good look at this excellent poster showing off their take on Big Red.

The one-sheet gives us a full body glimpse at Harbour’s Hellboy in his fully demonic form. Ordinarily, the character keeps his horns shaved down to stumps in order to fit into society a little better (and because it looks like a pain in the ass to put on clothes with them sticking out of your head). Not to mention that he’s wary of the prophecies linking him to the

William Hobbs obituary

Acclaimed ‘sword master’ who devised fights for the National Theatre and films such as The Three Musketeers

Although staged sword fights date back to Elizabethan theatre and evolved into a key element of swashbuckling action movies from cinema’s early days, fight choreographers have seldom been given their due.

William Hobbs, who has died aged 79, was one of the “sword masters” who devised exciting, gritty and inventively staged duels, notably in Shakespeare productions at the National Theatre at the Old Vic under Laurence Olivier in the 1960s, and in films such as Roman Polanski’s Macbeth (1971), Richard Lester’s The Three Musketeers (1973) and The Four Musketeers (1974), Ridley Scott’s The Duellists (1977), John Boorman’s Excalibur (1981) and Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s Cyrano de Bergerac (1990).

Frank Miller teams with Netflix for King Arthur-themed series Cursed

According to Deadline, Netflix has given a ten-episode series order to Cursed, a new original drama series based on the upcoming illustrated Ya book of the same name by Frank Miller (Sin City) and Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots).

A re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, Cursed is told through the eyes of Nimue, “a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.”

“I have always been entranced by the mythological Arthur story—and by Nimue, in particular,” said Miller. “It can be interpreted in any number of ways

What Were The Biggest Bombs At The 2017 B.O.? Deadline’s Most Valuable Blockbuster Tournament
Deadline’s annual film revenue tournaments have celebrated the triumphs of each year’s most profitable films. This year, we decided to look at the films on the opposite end of the spectrum. The big budget misfires that bled red ink and reminded everyone from the artists to the executives and studio executives that big swings don’t always clear the fences. These included passion projects, a blatant play for the movie going audience in China, while others were flat-out misfires. Some in the latter category included Justice League, The Mummy, Valerian and Blade Runner 2049. But guess what? They didn’t crack the Top Five. Here are the movies our experts said posted the worst losses.

Warner Bros has been fixated on the Camelot legend for years, developing several projects that included a remake of John Boorman’s Excalibur.

"Cursed"- 'Lady Of The Lake'

Netflix has ordered a 10-episode, "Cursed" live-action TV series from "Sin City" creator Frank Miller, based on Miller's upcoming re-imagining of the 'King Arthur' legend, focusing on the 'Lady of the Lake':

"...'Nimue', is a teenage girl with a mysterious gift, destined to become the powerful 'Lady of the Lake'. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in 'Arthur', a young mercenary, in a quest to find 'Merlin' and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying 'Red Paladins', and their complicit 'King Uther'..."

"I have always been entranced by the mythological 'Arthur' story," said Miller, "and by 'Nimue', in particular. It can be interpreted in a number of ways — from a delightful children’s story, as in 'The Sword in the Stone', to a terrifying interpretation like 'Excalibur'.

Netflix Teams Up With Frank Miller to Develop a King Arthur Series Based on His Cursed Novel

Last week we learned that legendary comic book writer and artist Frank Miller would be developing an illustrated novel called Cursed, which is based on the King Arthur legend, Lady of the Lake. Well, Netflix has already picked up the rights to the book and they will be developing it as a 10-episode TV series.

Miller is working on the book with writer Thomas Wheeler (Lego: Ninjago Movie) and according to Deadline, the same creative team who are working on the book will also be working on the series simultaneously. Its said that they will actually get to explore the characters in more detail in the series than in the book. So... I guess I'll just wait for the series.

Cursed is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake.
