But for the few contestants who actually impress us, well, they deserve our attention and praise. Enter: Wills Reid, the 29-year-old graphic designer from Los Angeles who single-handedly pieced Becca Kufrin's heart and morale back together after Jean Blanc's dramatic exit in episode four.

Maybe it's his adorable trek through the snow to meet Becca for their one-on-one snowmobiling date or the fact that he's so incredibly kind when speaking with her, but this man has stolen our hearts. Becca refers to him as one of the most "reserved" guys on the show, which is evidently hard to come by, but during their date, he opens up about having his heart broken, revealing a different side to him.

South African Filmmaker Head-Butted by Giraffe Dies at 47

  • The Wrap
Filmmaker Carlos Carvalho died after being head-butted by a giraffe while shooting a film in South Africa. He was 47.

“It is with a very sad heart that we have to announce the passing of Carlos Carvalho, one of our favourite Dop’s,” his film crew agency CallaCrew, announced on Facebook after his death Wednesday. ”Carlos was filming a feature at Glen Afric [sic] and had a fatal run in with a giraffe on set. He was flown to Milpark Hospital but succumbed to his injuries 20:50 last night.”

Carvalho was in South African filming in a game lodge when an attempt to get a close-up of a giraffe ended with the animal head-butting him, sending him flying, The Telegraph reported. He was transported to the Johannesburg hospital, where he died of massive head injuries.

Drikus Van Der Merwe, a member of the film crew, told The Telegraph, “We started shooting close ups of its body and its feet. Then while Carlos was looking through the camera eyepiece Gerald [the giraffe] swung his neck and hit him against his head.”

He added, “It came out of nowhere and Carlos didn’t even see it coming. He wasn’t aware of the danger.”

Richard Brooker, whose family owns the Glen Africa Country Lodge, told The Telegraph that the giraffe will not be put down, as he “did nothing wrong.”

Among the films Carvalho worked on as a camera operator, cinematographer or director of photography are “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” “Darkest Hour,” “Wonder Woman,” “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”

Humorous Video Relives The Massive Effort To Spoil Harry Potter Books Back In The Mid-2000s

The year is 2005, and a new Harry Potter book is on the horizon. Unfortunately, so is one of the first major milestones of internet trolling as a bunch of folks got together on the web and collectively decided to do what they can to ruin the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince for anyone they can. Honestly, I wasn't too affected by either spoiler war as my internet was still pay-per-minute and I was lucky if I could get online to check my Yahoo mail account much less browse around on any Harry Potter website! That said, I do remember folks talking about this and this video is a great nostalgia trip for anyone who may have trouble remembering just how big a deal this was!

Bruno Delbonnel (‘Darkest Hour’ cinematographer) on exploring the ‘duality’ of Winston Churchill [Exclusive Video Interview]
Darkest Hour” cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel reveals that he and director Joe Wright were more interested in exploring “the character” of Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) than in “the historical moment” surrounding him in their biographical drama. In their visual approach, they wanted to highlight the “duality in Churchill’s character”: he was “a guy who wanted to hide, but wanted to have power as well.” The film follows the newly-appointed British Prime Minister during the early days of World War II, when he must decide whether to negotiate with Hitler or fight against him. It’s now nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Oldman), and Best Cinematography. Watch our exclusive video interview with Delbonnel above.

Harry Potter, and the trouble with 3D

Simon Brew Jan 17, 2018

Warner Bros, the Harry Potter films, and the assorted struggles with 3D...

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, a movie I caught up with again over the weekend. The sixth in the boxset of eight, I’d not seen it since its release, and I’ve gradually been rewatching the Potter films on the Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray format. So far, Half-Blood Prince is the one that benefits the most from the 4K upgrade. The sombre palette particularly takes advantage of the extra resolution afforded.

The film, though, was also the second in the series to be released partially in 3D, after the ending of Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix had enjoyed/suffered a post-production overhaul of its finale with certain screenings. With Avatar still just around the corner, Warner Bros was experimenting with 3D more than fully

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Nears $1 Billion at Worldwide Box Office
Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is inching closer to the $1 billion milestone, with worldwide grosses set to hit the mark before New Year’s Eve.

HBO Teases Harry Potter: The Entire Adventure With New Trailer

Take heed, Potterheads: For the very first time, all eight Harry Potter films will be available to stream on the same platform (HBO), starting in January.

It all begins with the former on January 2nd, with a new instalment set to air each day at 8 pm Et/Pt right up until the advent of Fantastic Beasts on Wednesday, January 10th, which is rather fitting given how 2018 will also herald David Yates’ magical sequel – one which primarily takes place in the city of Paris, from what we understand.

‘Darkest Hour’ Review: Gary Oldman Gives Us a Fearsome, Oscar-Worthy Churchill

‘Darkest Hour’ Review: Gary Oldman Gives Us a Fearsome, Oscar-Worthy Churchill
Gary Oldman is one of the greatest actors on the planet – and he proves it again as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, director Joe Wright's rip-roaring take on the celebrated Prime Minister's first tumultuous month in office in May, 1940, when France and Belgium are a whisper away from surrendering to Hitler and Great Britain may be next. (How I'd love to see Oldman's take on the Fuhrer).

The British actor, 59, has played real people before, from Sid Vicious (Sid and Nancy) to Lee Harvey Oswald (JFK). But his Churchill is something different.
