Charlie Hunnam Isolated Himself For The Lost City Of Z


Charlie Hunnam

Charlie Hunnam plays Fawcett, and says that he related to the man's selfish obsession, abandoning his family for his quest. "It was an extraordinary script," Hunnam says. "It struck me as the best opportunity I'd ever been given, because of the breadth of the story and substance of the story, but also the complexity of this character. There were just certain elements of Fawcett that I had been becoming more and more interested in exploring just in my regular life."

The film was shot over five months in Colombia, and Hunnam initially tried to keep in touch with his girlfriend Morgana McNelis. But the remote location made this impossible, as there wasn't reliable phone or internet. So he decided to write to her a letter a day. But even that proved tricky. "I received a letter from her," he says, "and I realised that from the tone of it and things she was saying that she hadn't received the two letters that I sent before!"

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Trailer


For the most part, Arthur has taught himself all the life lessons he knows, he lives a rough life with his friends in the town, fighting comes as standard for the young man, however Arthur's life is about to change for better and worse.

Crimson Peak Review

Weak

Gifted Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth) makes an odd misstep with this overwrought gothic horror thriller, which is so bloated that it's more silly than scary. At least it features a starry cast that has a lot of fun with the characters, providing some emotional undercurrents as things get increasingly crazed. But the truth about this film is that it's a haunted house movie with ghosts that aren't remotely frightening. And worse yet, they're essentially irrelevant to the story.

It's set in late-1800s Buffalo, as young aspiring writer Edith (Mia Wasikowska) is unsure about the romantic advances of her childhood friend Alan (Charlie Hunnam), who is now a hunky doctor. But he fades into the background when the dashing Sir Thomas (Tom Hiddlestone) arrives from England seeking funding from Edith's father (Jim Beaver) for a machine to mine valuable clay from his crumbling ancestral home. As he sweeps Edith off her feet, Thomas' sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain) enters the picture with a clearly nefarious plan of her own. Sure enough, Thomas whisks Edith off to get married and return to the family mansion, a freaky towering wreck that oozes red clay. Or that might be blood. And since Edith has a history of seeing ghosts, the house feels particularly crowded to her.

The spirits are rendered as stretched-out skeletons surrounded by spidery wisps. And in England they're of course blood-red. Oddly, they merely seem to be observers to this story, never actually doing much proper menacing. And since they look faintly ridiculous it isn't easy to muster up the dread required to make this work as a horror movie. Everything else on-screen is just as absurd. The mansion looks more like an elaborately dilapidated over-sized movie set than a neglected manor house. Thankfully, Del Toro packs every scene with witty details and a lurid colour scheme that keeps the audience on its toes.

Charlie Hunnam Reveals Why He Turned Down 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Role


Charlie Hunnam Jamie Dornan Guillermo Del Toro

Fans were left disappointed when Charlie Hunnam turned down the role of Christian Grey in the recent blockbuster adaptation of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, and it turns out the star himself was similarly crestfallen. He’s opened up in a new interview that the decision was “heartbreaking”, but one that he was forced into because of prior commitments.

At the time of the announcement, some speculated that the British actor had been intimidated by the very physical sexual content of the movie, but the ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star revealed to V Man magazine about the real reason why he backed out of the extremely lucrative project. It turns out that he had already committed to another project with his friend Guillermo Del Toro [Crimson Peak], and didn’t want to let him down by accepting two jobs at the same time.

Charlie Hunnam Kurt Sutter

Details of the seventh and final season of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ have been coming out of the San Diego Comic-Con.

"Sons Of Anarchy" Creator Stays Vague About Final Season At Hall H Panel


Charlie Hunnam Katey Sagal Kim Coates Mark Boone Junior

Unlike a lot of the other panels at SDCC this year, Sons of Anarchy was mostly show and very little tell. That is, fans, who snagged a seat in Hall H, got treated to a trailer for the final season, a prequel announcement and some vague teasers of the character arcs for season 7.

Katey Sagal, Kurt Sutter
Sutter [r] had very few concrete details to reveal at the panel.

SoA will live on after its official end on FX, via a possible prequel (still in early talks) and – here’s something to be excited about – a novelisation, the tentatively titled Bratva. The book will pick up at the end of Season 4, however, creator Kurt Sutter was clear – spinoffs are not on the cards. This isn’t Breaking Bad, after all. According to Sutter, via Deadline, the spinoff route just wouldn’t do justice to Sons of Anarchy.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Diehards Finally Get Full Trailer


Dakota Johnson Jamie Dornan Charlie Hunnam

This is your moment Fifty Shades of Grey fans – the trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson’s steamy adaptation finally dropped on Thursday. This should ease any doubts about stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, who both look pretty perfect for their respective roles.

Fifty Shades Of Grey
Story aside, the film looks visually polished.

But more than that, the trailer itself is remarkably tame. Set to a remix of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love (like the teaser from last week) the trailer includes Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey’s meeting and their deepening relationship, but it’s all firmly PG until the final three second. You guessed it, that’s when the crops and blindfolds come out and we’re reminded that this is the Fifty Shades of Grey and not just the latest soapy drama churned out by the Hollywood machine.

Sons Of Anarchy Final Season: Charlie Hunnam Spills Details


Charlie Hunnam Marilyn Manson Courtney Love

Speaking at the Television Critics Association preview night on Monday, lead actor Charlie Hunnam told reporters that "Jax is in a very schizophrenic state, he's obviously very sad and vulnerable and broken with this huge amount of revenge and anger in his heart." Of course this is a result of the events in the final episode of the sixth season, which aired at the end of 2013. The shocking betrayal of Jax by his mother Gemma astounded fans and critics, and the fallout is sure to be massive when the show returns on September 9th. 

Charlie HunnamHunnam has played Jax since the very first episode of 'Sons of Anarchy' which aired in 2008.

The show has a strong fan base and often receives positive reviews, but has failed to pick up as many accolades as other FX shows such as 'Damages' and 'The Shield'. However, Hunnam stated he was more concerned with delivering a satisfying end to the series for fans than winning awards. "It doesn't matter at all," he said. "I feel there's this perception that we're upset about it. I really don't give a sh--. I make this for the people who love the show."

They're No Chris Hemsworth! Other Actors Considered For The Role Of 'Thor'


Chris Hemsworth Alexander Skarsgard Charlie Hunnam Liam Hemsworth

After owning the role in two hit movies, it’s hard to imagine any one other than gorgeous blond man-mountain, Chris Hemsworth, playing Marvel Comics superhero, Thor. You can’t even hear the word “Thor” without Chris coming into mind (we definitely don’t just sit here chanting “Thor” for this exact reason. Ahum).

chris hemsworth thor Thor has been played by Chris Hemsworth in both movies

But if you thought that he was the first choice to play the role, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Chris’ potential apparently didn’t shine through immediately for the producers, and although he auditioned early he was put to one side while other actors auditioned. Imagine if one of these actors had won the role instead of Chris. It’ll be hard to think about, but sometimes life is tough.
