Colin Salmon - Premiere of Focus Features' 'London Has Fallen' held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome - Arrivals at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome - Los Angeles, California, United States - Tuesday 1st March 2016
President Benjamin Asher must make a diplomatic trip to the capital of the United Kingdom after the British Prime Minister is killed. The death of the Prime Minister is shroud in mystery and Asher's number one Secret Service agent, Mike Banning, can't help but feel that the trip is going too smoothly.
Having each of the world's leaders all in one place, it's a hugely appealing target for terrorists. As the funeral proceedings begin to come together, Banning's worst fears come true. The world's stability is left in the hands of the president, his secret service agent and a lone MI6 agent.

Could Colin Salmon play James Bond?
Pierce Brosnan, whom previously played 007 four times between 1995 and 2002, says the next James Bond should be played by one of two black actors: Idris Elba or Colin Salmon. The Luther star remains the heavy favourite to replace Daniel Craig as Bond though Salmon, who previously played MI6 Deputy Chief of Staff Charles Robinson, has been backed in after getting Brosnan's blessing.
Idris Elba is the heavy favorite to play James Bond
"Yeah, he would actually," Brosnan said when asked if Elba would make a good Bond. "Colin Salmon also. May the best man get the job and may Daniel bring home the bacon for as long as he wants," he added, to the Radio Times.

Cumberbatch stars in the violent short
Benedict Cumberbatch is hot property right not. His portrayal of Sherlock Holmes bought him a ticket to Hollywood, and now that he’s played Julian Assange – a celebrated turn in a disappointing film – every move he makes is closely followed by a headline or two.
The poster for Little Favour
But such is his desire to involve himself in both indie and mainstream projects, it comes as no surprise that a short film – however high profile – will be hitting iTunes on November 5th.

When Wallace receives a phone call from an old friend asking for a 'little favour', he's obliged to say yes. However, when this Little Favour develops in to a rather large and serious problem Wallace must quickly find a solution.
The film Little Favour was written and directed by Patrick Victor Monroe and produced by SunnyMarch, a brand new British production group set up by Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Ackland, Adam Selves and Ben Dillon. The film was funded through crowd funding, the original target for the film was 25 thousand GBP but the project smashed the target raising an additional 60+ thousand ensuring the film had the best possible outcome.
Speaking about his reasons behind backing the project - both on and behind camera - Benedict Cumberbatch said: "We all came together out of sheer goodwill and generosity for a cause we believe in - namely Patrick Monroe and his second outing as a director and writer."
After seeing Skyfall this week, Roger Moore described Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes' new James Bond film as "without a doubt... the best Bond there's ever been." The film's crew is seemingly made up entirely of Oscar winners and critical reaction has suggested that Skyfall could be the first 007 movie to win big at the Academy Awards.
Though there were murmurings of discontent when British star Daniel Craig replaced Pierce Brosnan in the secret agent franchise, he's since become a revelation, with many considering him to be the finest Bond yet. His turn in Casino Royale had far more depth than anything Brosnan (or Dalton for that matter) had delivered, leaving Bond geeks squabbling between just three actors as to who was the best Bond ever: Moore, Connery or Craig? Though Quantum of Solace failed to reach the heady critical heights of its predecessor, early reaction suggests Skyfall betters Casino Royale and possibly anything before it. But it all could have been very different, couldn't it? Cast your mind back to 2005, when the protracted process of choosing the new James Bond was reaching its final stages. With Ralph Fiennes unable to commit to the filming schedule of Casino Royale, and Jude Law, Orlando Bloom, Eric Bana and Heath Ledger discounted, producers chose to go ahead and run screen tests on the four 'finalists'. (They had lost the chance of landing Clive Owen after refusing to include gross profit points in his contract) The contenders were Layer Cake star Daniel Craig, ER actor Goran Visnjic, Australian actor Sam Worthington and 22-year-old Henry Cavill, reported Variety. All were relatively inexperienced, though producers were keen for someone considerably younger than the 52-year-old Pierce Brosnan. In fact, writer Paul Haggis told the Hollywood Reporter at the time, "We're trying to reinvent Bond. He's 28 - no Q, no gadgets."

James (Phillips) is a geeky misfit who has a sign above his head saying "loser". Literally. After his friend Ian (Grant) commits suicide, he receives a message from him that challenges him to learn how to talk to women. His friends (Leonidas and Grezo) encourage him to try, starting with an awkward chat at Ian's funeral with his school crush Hannah (Atkinson). He then starts a mentorship with cocky motivational speaker Ampersand (Conway), a disciple of womanising writer guru Zeus (Kemp). But this will require changing almost everything about himself.

Eight people are called into an examination room by the Invigilator (Salmon) and given simple instructions to get through the last phase of a job interview.
But when the 80-minute clock starts ticking, they realise there's no question on their exam sheet. Trying to work out what to do involves collaborating and competing, and eventually turning on each other. And everyone seems to know something they're not telling the others.

Kenneth Branagh is to play war hero Colonel Tim Collins in a new series of BBC dramas, it has been announced.
The actor will star in the last episode of 10 Days to War, a series of BBC short films focusing on the build-up to military action in Iraq.
Colonel Collins, an officer in the Royal Irish Regiment, made the headlines for delivering a rousing speech to troops before entering battle.
Roly Keating, controller of BBC Two, said the 10 Days to War series was "a challenging and original way of exploring one of the most controversial moments in recent British history".
"By broadcasting daily we hope audiences will be able to recapture that exciting sense of huge events unfolding unpredictably in real time," he added.
The films will be shown in the Newsnight slot on BBC2 before being made available on digital outlets such as the BBC iPlayer, the BBC's YouTube channel and BBC4.
Commenting on the launch, Peter Barron, Newsnight editor, said: "The story our viewers have wanted us to revisit more than any other is the run up to the war in Iraq in 2003.
"This dramatisation gives us the opportunity to explore the issues and arguments in a way traditional documentary couldn't. We then plan to question the real players about the events of 2003 on Newsnight."
Meanwhile former ER star Alex Kingston is to star in two episodes of the fourth series of Doctor Who.
Kingston, as well as James Bond regular Colin Salmon, will star alongside David Tennant in a two-part story penned by Coupling writer Stephen Moffat.
"I used to watch Doctor Who through the crack in the door," the actress explained. "I was so terrified but I couldn't tear myself away.
"I loved it so much and I'm so delighted to be a part of the new series."

And if all you really want is to see these built-to-kill bad asses fight to the death, then you're in for a treat. It's like watching a very non-scary, screeching, interstellar cockfight. There's a heaping helping of acidic bloodbaths, infrared-vision shootouts, gleaming Predator weaponry, and oozy Alien slime. Yes, folks, it's all here; and if you're a fan of both of the old movie series, writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson (of Resident Evil - not Magnolia - fame) plies you with fun hints at the originals.
