Ron Howard, ELLE Editor-in-Chief Robbie Myers and Felicity Jones at the ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Los Angeles, California, United States - Monday 24th October 2016
Daisy Ridley is envious of Felicity Jones, who is set to go on a 'Star Wars' tour in the future.
The 24-year-old actress has admitted she wants to be in Felicity's shoes and be on the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' press tour, and although Daisy has admitted '''jealous' is the wrong word'' she does feel a little bit of the green-eyed monster creeping in that Felicity will be on the road for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, the brunette beauty - who played Rey in the movie - said: ''It was weird, I've talked so much retrospectively about what was going on [in the lead-up to 'Force Awakens']. It was so odd to be reliving it. And she gets to go talk about this film that she's part of in all these amazing places.

After her Oscar-nominated performance in The Theory of Everything, Felicity Jones has been thrust into the A-list. And she has a trio of big roles this year that will raise her profile even higher.
First up is Inferno opposite Tom Hanks. This is the third film in the Robert Langdon series, which started with The Da Vinci Code, and she plays the leading female role of Dr Sienna Brooks. She liked the script when she read it, and was happy to be working with director Ron Howard. "That Sienna must be an equal to Langdon in her intellectual capabilities was very clear to Ron and me from the very beginning," she says. "This is such a huge departure from anything I've done in the past, so the chance to learn from Ron and Tom, two of the greatest creatives in the industry, well, you dream of working with people like them! The energy they bring, the enthusiasm, it's like you're working with them on their first movie. It's master class."

Jones is glad that she has emerged on the scene just as better roles for women are coming along. 'You can see that clearly with things like The Hunger Games, there is a huge audience for female-driven films," she says. "Also I think Lena Dunham is such a force when it comes to talking about female roles. She is a trailblazer, someone who really has made the path easier for the rest of us." Jones famously begged Dunham for a role in Girls, and appeared in an episode in the third series.

Since novelist Dan Brown wrote a new thriller featuring the symbologist Robert Langdon, Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard have reteamed to bring it to the big screen. But this second sequel to The Da Vinci Code feels like a pale imitation of the original. Gone are the clever, fake-academic revelations and rather wacky action antics, and in their place are clues that feel utterly irrelevant, accompanied by fights and chases that are incoherent.
At least it opens well, with Langdon (Hanks) waking up in a Florence hospital without a clue how he got to Italy. Then when a sexy cop (Ana Ularu) tries to kill him, Robert's hot doctor Sienna (Felicity Jones) helps him escape. She also has an unusual knowledge of antiquities, so she travels with him to figure out why he's being chased by the police, an army of World Health Organisation officials (led by Sidse Babett Knudsen), a man (Omar Sy) leading a team of violent goons and a shady businessman (Irrfan Khan). Robert traces all of these shenanigans to the recently deceased billionaire anarchist Bertrand (Ben Foster), who was plotting to release a virus that would kill off half of mankind to halt overpopulation. Is his plan still going forward? Can Robert stop it in time? The next clues are in Venice and then Istanbul.
The settings are gorgeous, and Howard knows how to use them to pack the film with old world elegance. But while David Koepp's script keeps the mayhem moving along whether or not it makes any sense, Howard directs everything at a glacial pace. So it looks like Hanks is in danger of falling asleep at any time, even in the middle of a car chase. There's also the problem that the central premise is utterly preposterous: if you're planning a terrorist attack that will kill four billion people, would you take the time to set it up as an elaborate scavenger hunt? And it doesn't help that everyone in the movie seems untrustworthy. The script sorts the good from the bad as it goes along, but it never matters.

The Galaxy is on the brink of a major war being won by dangerous rulers and only a few fighters stand between the Emperor and his unrelenting army which is constantly surging peaceful plants. The destruction and invasion of any planet who won't agree to the Empire's stringent regulations is all but destroyed.
Jyn Erso is one such rebel fighter who is willing to go to any lengths to fulfil her mission, often landing her in trouble with her seniors but her independent demeanour means that she might be a perfect candidate for an imperative mission - the failure of which could mean the end of the galaxy as its citizens know.
Jyn and a small team of fellow rebels must steal plans for the Emperor's newest and deadliest weapon, The Death Star.
