Ghostbusters Trailer


Ghostbusters is a new film for 2016 and is based on the 1984 film of the same name and is directed by Paul Feig. The film features four women on their quest to save New York City when various ghosts take over and exercise control over the humans.

When the Will Smith movie first came out in 1996, Liam, who is now aged 26, was too young to see it as it carried a PG-13 rating. However, it didn’t take him long to get his hands on a copy.

“I didn’t see it in the cinema as I was only 6 years old and my mum and dad thought I was too young. When I about 7, one of my brothers bought a VHS copy and I remember secretly watching the movie,” he smiled to Us Weekly magazine.

Tom has gone on to become one of Britain’s most famous exports, which is in part down to the various characters he plays on screen.

Jessica Chastain Struggled To Fight In Heels On The Huntsman


Jessica Chastain Chris Hemsworth

The Help star portrays Chris Hemsworth's wife in the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, and the all-action role required Jessica, who is best known for her dramatic work, to undergo weeks of intense fight training.

However, the actress, who is five feet, four inches (1.6 metres), was thrown off when she arrived on set for her first day and learned she would have to pull off all of her stunts wearing heels, so she wouldn't look too short next to her leading man, who towers over her at six feet, three inches (1.9 metres).

"I had worked in New York with someone Universal (studio bosses) had sent (to learn how to fight onscreen), then I went to London for three weeks to work with the stunt team, and I was feeling confident," she smiled on U.S. breakfast show Today, "and then Chris shows up, who's like 6'5 or something, and (costume designer) Colleen Atwood had built these shoes that look like flats, but they've got about four and a half inches hidden inside!"

The 40-year-old actress stars as Ravenna in the fantasy movie, with Emily taking on the role of her sister Queen Freya. The pair donned some incredible ensembles for the film, but the costumes had an unfortunate effect on Charlize in one particular scene.

"This one (Charlize) had to glide towards me during a really intense scene and she went, ‘This is my kingdom, my dominion, (burp).’ It was like the longest burp ever!" Emily laughed during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday night (21Apr16). "In the face. It was so funny to me that I could no longer do the scene."

"It was like a throat gurgle," Charlize added. "The problem is you can’t adjust (in the dress). It’s just impossible to digest anything so it just kind of gets stuck. And I tend to eat my food after my close up is done, so I don’t really care about the other actors. It’s usually when I have a tuna and onion sandwich and I’m like (exhale)."
