Venom Star Tom Hardy Says He’s Getting Tired Of Acting

Tom Hardy‘s undoubtedly one of the most beloved – and talented – actors of his generation. The British star’s been at the forefront of Hollywood for the best part of a decade now, appearing in such blockbuster movies as Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and Dunkirk. Later this year, he’ll return to the comic book genre for Sony’s Venom spinoff, a film that the studio will no doubt be hoping to kickstart a franchise with.

That might not be what Hardy himself wants, however. In an eye-opening interview with Esquire, the 40-year-old spoke about his honest opinion on where his career is currently and how he feels like he’s practically done everything he wants to do in terms of acting.

Here’s how Hardy described it:

“You’ve summited Everest. It’s a miracle that you’ve made it anywhere near the fucking mountain, let alone climbed it.

‘The Children Act’ Film Review: Emma Thompson Grapples With Conscience in Sluggish Legal Drama

‘The Children Act’ Film Review: Emma Thompson Grapples With Conscience in Sluggish Legal Drama
If Emma Thompson can’t make “The Children Act,” a drama about a family-court judge conflicted over her own decisions and the precarious state of her own family, into something interesting and meaningful, then no one can. And she can’t.

Screenwriter Ian McEwan, adapting his own novel, and director Richard Eyre (“Notes on a Scandal”) have assembled a fine cast to tackle controversial subjects brimming over with dramatic possibility, but the results are stultifyingly subdued. It’s all so polite, so sober, so convinced of its own importance, that it never has a pulse. This is love and life and death discussed as though they were paint swatches for the guest room.

Thompson stars as Fiona Maye, a high-court judge who specializes in hot-button issues that often put her in the crosshairs of religious fundamentalists. (The “Act” of the title is a noun and not a verb.) As the film opens,

11 Movies That Could Have Won a Best Popular Film Oscar

11 Movies That Could Have Won a Best Popular Film Oscar
Nearly a decade ago, the controversial best-picture snub of superhero hit “The Dark Knight” sparked the motion picture Academy to action. In an attempt to stoke the Oscar odds for populist cinema and to be more inclusive, the organization expanded its top field for the first time in seven decades.

Last week, with Oscar telecast ratings trending downward at an alarming rate for ABC executives, Academy brass took action once again, announcing a half-baked plan to honor “popular” films with an Oscar in some manner to be adjudicated at a later date.

The thinking is that declining interest in the Oscar telecast is owed in part to under-seen art-house fare boxing out popular films at the ceremony year after year. Nevertheless, an analysis of the last nine years of nominees — the post-“Dark Knight” world, if you will — reveals a healthy balance of specialty fare and movies the masses flocked to see.

The Oscar for Most Baffling New Category goes to… The Oscars!

Tom Jolliffe looks at the recent decision to introduce a new Academy Award category…

The Oscars are always contentious. It’s the ‘big’ award ceremony. It’s the one. No one really pays much attention to the Golden Globes, or anything else. The Oscar is the one statue everyone in Hollywood strives for. So now, in their infinite wisdom, it seems the board are looking to create a category for ‘Achievement in Popular Film.’ Even their category title makes little sense. It’s like getting an award in High School for achieving popularity. So how did you do it Britney? ‘I just formed a clique with all the popular girls, bullied the nerds and dated the captain of the football team. Easy.’

So here’s the rundown of the internet reaction so far. The predominant sentiment is that it’s an attempt to gain brownie points for inclusivity in a

How to Make the Oscars More Popular Without Ruining Them: A Modest Proposal

Let’s not kid ourselves: The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences created a separate but equal Best Picture award with the category “Most Popular Film,” and with that made the single most stupid and suicidal decision in the organization’s history. But instead of condemning this move, as many have done already, let’s consider what the Academy really wants to achieve.

For a decade, the Academy struggled to become more reflective of popular tastes. The expansion of the Best Picture category to allow as many as 10 nominees — itself considered a radical move when initiated for the 2009 awards — was intended to let popular studio hits become more prominent contenders.

As a result, more studio movies were nominated, including “Toy Story 3,” “The Help,” “American Sniper,” “Mad Max – Fury Road,” “The Martian,” and “Hidden Figures.” However, in the last 10 years, the winners only became more specialized. Since the expansion,

The ‘Best Popular Movie’ Oscar: Wtf Is the Academy Thinking?

For 90 years, Hollywood has been celebrating itself by handing out Academy Awards — and for almost as long, people have been debating what, if anything, constitutes a “Best” Picture. The Oscars are a hopelessly biased and flawed system — the voters skew older, most aren’t nearly adventurous enough in seeking out riskier fare, the kerfuffles around eligibility, that whole #OscarsSoWhite fiasco. But what has remained consistent over almost a century is the notion that, no matter how idiotic or shortsighted the choices were from year to year, there remained a belief

Risky Oscars Makeover Raises a Thousand Questions, But Few Answers

The reason behind the decisions made by the Academy’s Board of Governors to shorten the Oscars ceremony and salute more commercial films is a simple one: They had to do something.

The Academy was facing a show that was drawing fewer viewers every year, setting a record low this past March. And it was under growing pressure from ABC, which has broadcast the ceremony for decades, to reverse the troubling trend even though few TV shows draw as many viewers as they used to.

AMPAS was also staring at a loss of revenue at a time when it needs all the money it can get, both to service a rapidly expanding and increasingly international membership and to complete its hugely expensive Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles.

Tom Hardy’s Totally Unrecognizable As Al Capone In First Look At Fonzo

Later this year, Tom Hardy will attempt to successfully meld investigative journalist Eddie Brock with an alien symbiote to become Venom. And although this isn’t the first time he’s undertaken a role in which most of his gorgeous mug is concealed, it also won’t be the last.

Surely by now, we’ve all grown accustomed to watching Hardy perform with the better part of his face covered. That said, nothing can prepare you for what you’re about to see.

For those of you who don’t know, Fonzo‘s an upcoming biographical drama focusing on notorious crime boss Al Capone, following his decade-long incarceration. Scheduled for release sometime in 2019, the Bron Studios-backed feature will be directed by Josh Trank (Fantastic Four) and star none other than, you guessed it, Tom Hardy as the Chicago Outfit mafioso.
