King Arthur Legend of the Sword Trailer


Arthur might have an extraordinary destiny, but after his birthright was taken from him at a young age, he has grown up an agent of the streets of Londonium and now the idea that he has royal blood is almost laughable. That is until he manages to unsheath the mighty sword of Excalibur from a stone; a feat that can only be achieved be he who is worthy of the throne. This forces him to make a choice, he can ignore the destiny that is pressing in around him or he can seize it once and for all. He joins the kingdom's resistance and it's there he meets the beautiful Guinevere who encourages him to learn of the power that he wields and defeat the tyrannous Vortigern, avenging his parents and ending his rule for good.

The 58-year-old pop icon ''can't imagine'' a time in her life when she doesn't want to make songs anymore but has admitted her ex-husband Guy Ritchie couldn't understand why she was so obsessed with her talent and art.

She explained: ''It's inexplicable; it's like breathing, and I can't imagine not doing it. That is one of the arguments I would get into with my ex-husband, who used to say to me, 'But why do you have to do this again? Why do you have to make another record? Why do you have to go on tour? Why do you have to make a movie?' And I'm like, 'Why do I have to explain myself?'

After nine months of warring in and out of court, Madonna and Guy Ritchie have finally settled their custody dispute over their teenage son, Rocco.

A court spokesperson in New York said on Wednesday (September 7th) said that the duo had reached a settlement out of court, which was concluded just “hours before” they were both due to attend a court hearing regarding Rocco’s custody, TMZ reported.

The disagreement began back in December 2015 when Rocco, now 16 years old, quit his mother’s world tour after an argument about homework and mobile phones, and went to London to live with his filmmaker father. He then refused to return to Manhattan for Christmas with Madonna, leading to litigation being opened up before Christmas.

Madonna Guy Ritchie

The custody battle between Madonna and Guy Ritchie has exploded in spectacular style, with the iconic singer accusing her ex-husband of encouraging their 15 year old son Rocco to disrespect the law by staying with him in London, and demanding that he be arrested for “contempt” of court.

Madonna’s legal team made the dramatic demand in New York’s Supreme Court on Wednesday (March 2nd), as both her and Ritchie listened in via telephone. She argued that Ritchie’s failure to ensure Rocco got on a plane to New York back in December, despite a court order to that effect, was enough to constitute contempt of court in addition to setting a bad example to their son.

MGM To Announce James Bond 24 Director Soon, Could It Be Guy Ritchie?


Daniel Craig James Bond Sam Mendes Matthew Vaughn Guy Ritchie

MGM say it will announce the director of the new James Bond movie in the near future, but confirmed the film is some three years away, at least. We already know that it will not be Sam Mendes behind the camera, after he passed at the opportunity to concentrate on his theatre work. The British filmmaker was responsible for the last movie, Skyfall, the most successful film in the history of UK film.

"We are very excited about the franchise, we look forward to announcing a director soon," said MGM chairman and chief executive officer Gary Barber in a conference call with investors. "We are currently developing the screenplay and working with our partners. We look forward to developing the script soon and signing a director. We are hoping within the next three years it will be released." It was a massive year for MGM, which took $1.1 billion at the box office mainly thanks to Skyfall and Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. A huge turnaround when considering the studio was languishing in insolvency just a couple of years ago, resulting in the four year gap between 2008's Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. Mr Barber will have all but banked on Mendes returning to the director's seat for Bond 24 - given the success of the last movie - though it's back to the drawing board. "[Mendes] did an amazing job on Skyfall," he said "We are very thankful for the work that he did."

Tom Cruise To Star In Guy Ritchie's 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E'?


Tom Cruise Guy Ritchie

Tom Cruise is in early talks to play in the lead in Guy Ritchie's forthcoming movie 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E' based on the original TV series starring Robert Vaughan and David McCallum as two agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement. Warner Bros has wanted to make the project for years, originally with George Clooney in the lead and Steven Soderbergh behind the camera.

According to Deadline.com, Clooney dropped out because of surgery on his beck and back, while Soderbergh left soon after. The studio soon turned to Ritchie - who helmed the Sherlock Holmes movies - and his producing partner Lionel Wigram. It would be the latest high profile role for Cruise, who will star in another Mission: Impossible movie developed by Christopher McQuarrie as well as another Jack Reacher movie. The first film based on Lee Child's crime novels grossed more than $215 million worldwide. 

Warner Bros began quiet talks with Cruise for The Man From U.N.C.L.E after he completed All You Need Is Kill with director Doug Liman. Though the film is yet to be released, the studio's eagerness to sign up Cruise again suggest it's pretty impressive. He next stars in the futuristic sci-fi movie Oblivion, which hits theaters on April 19, 2013.

Guy Ritchie Directs David Beckham's Newest Underwear Shoot For February Campaign


David Beckham Guy Ritchie

David Beckham has numerous promotional campaigns with various companies but none of them raise the heartrates of women across the nation more than his underwear line with H&M. Becks has uploaded some photos from his latest shoot onto Facebook. Some people are questioning: Is this Beckham's sexiest ad ever? 

"I'm excited about the new H&M campaign directed by Guy Ritchie... the campaign will launch in early Feb'." He said, via Facebook. In many respects Guy Ritchie seems a truly odd choice to direct a 'sexy' ad campaign. While Snatch is a hugely enjoyable film, it's about as far from 'sexy' as any film can get - Jason Statham's stilted dialogue entirely detracts from his looks. However, as the Mirror reminds us, Ritchie 'was the man who brought us Sienna Miller in suspenders". There's hope yet.

Beckham has modelled underwear before, along with his wife, for Armani in a memorable black and white campaign. This ad will see him wearing khaki pants and a black vest running through the gardens of Beverly Hills, showing off his tattoos and athletic physique. As the Sun reports, Guy said "For me this felt more than a campaign - it was like directing a short film."  Adding that Becks was "the perfect leading man."

Guy Ritchie And Jacqui Ashley Celebrate Arrival Of New Baby Girl


Guy Ritchie

Congratulations to Guy Ritchie and his model fiancée Jacqui Ashley after they celebrated the arrival of their second child! The couple already have a child, their son Rafael was born in September of last year, but he will now have a sister to play with after it was revealed that a little girl arrived at a private hospital in London.

A source for the pair told the Daily Mail “We can confirm that Guy and Jacqui are the proud parents of a new baby girl. Mother and baby are doing well.” Another told The Sun “They are both utterly delighted at the birth. The fact they now have a girl is an added bonus — Guy always wanted a boy and a girl.”

Although these are the first children for Ashley, Ritchie is becoming a father for the fourth time, having had 11 year-old Rocco and six year-old adopted son David from his previous marriage to Madonna. The news caps a whirlwind few weeks for the couple; it was just last month at director Ritchie decided that he wanted to be a husband again and asked Ashley for her hand in marriage.

Madonna's Ex Guy Ritchie And Jacqui Ainsley To Get Married!


Guy Ritchie Madonna

Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley are engaged to be married, it has emerged, after a source confirmed the news to US Weekly.

The 44-year-old British director, who was famously once married to Madonna, is engaged to his 30-year-old long-term partner, who is expecting their second child. Ainsley revealed her growing bump, and the baby news, at the July premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, and recently, she flashed her diamond ring during a dinner date on Sunday at Madeo restaurant in Los Angeles. The American mag confirmed the news, which was patently obvious to some already. Richie has directed some British classics, such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Swept Away, Revolver, RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes. He has been dating Jacqui, who hails from Southend in Essex, since April 2010, and with a second baby on the way, the couple have decided to start planning their nuptials.

On 15 December 2008, it was announced by Madonna's spokeswoman that the singer had agreed to a divorce settlement with Ritchie, the terms of which granted him between £50million and £60million. Their high profile split came after 8 years of marriage, in which time they had two children: Rocco, and an adopted son, David. The pair reached an amicable arrangement for the custody of the pair. "I enjoyed my first marriage. It's definitely not something I regret. The experience was ultimately very positive," Ritchie said.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows Trailer


In 1892, the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead; his death is ruled as suicide, according to Scotland Yard detective Inspector Lestrade. But Sherlock Holmes knows that this isn't true: all the evidence suggests that the Crown Prince was murdered, by one Professor Moriarty, whose genius is matched only by Holmes'.

Robbie Williams Parts Way With Song Writing Partner


Robbie Williams Guy Ritchie Mark Owen Take That

British popstar Robbie Williams has cancelled writing sessions with his long-time lyrical partner Guy Ritchie after it emerged that Guy has been working with Robbie's former band mates.

Chambers, who was behind some of Robbie's biggest hits including ANGELS, had recently reunited with the singer after going their separate ways several years ago.

However, the Sun reports that the pair's scheduled Los Angeles song-writing sessions have been cancelled after they "didn't work out".

A source claims Guy's upcoming collaboration with Take That members GARY BARLOW and Mark Owen was the real problem, added the newspaper.

"He never mentioned it to Robbie. Rob heard Gary was in LA working and found out it was with Guy. He wasn't best pleased when he heard," continued the source.

Chambers, Owen and Barlow are thought to be part of a 12-strong writing team for a new ITV show BRITANNIA HIGH which follows the lives of youngsters at a fictional performing arts school.

Barlow will pen songs for the students to sing throughout the series.

BRITANNIA HIGH will also utilise the talents of STRICTLY COME DANCING judge ARLENE PHILLIPS and theatre veteran DAVID IAN.

Revolver Review


Terrible
Trickery is something Guy Ritchie has been familiar with for some time. To pull off not one, but two fantastic heist films that look cooler than a Miles Davis concert filmed by Jim Jarmusch, you need to employ certain methods to make sure people stay with the quirky characters and the slick action. In Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the tricks paid off because there was so much to watch and be entertained by, not to mention acting that was always solid. But when he directed Madonna, his wife, in 2002's Swept Away, and it ended up being a steaming pile of celluloid afterbirth, there was a hint that Ritchie wasn't so good at films that didn't employ tricks and maneuvers. So, when he announced that the follow-up would be another heist flick, we should have been able to breathe a deep sigh of relief. No such luck.

Here's Revolver: Jake Green (Jason Statham) is being chased by Macha (Ray Liotta). They have a sordid history but the main reason is because Green walked straight to Macha's table in his swank casino and took him for a big wad of dough. To survive Macha's onslaught, Green agrees to give up every cent he owns to two lone sharks, Avi and Zach (Andre Benjamin and Vincent Pastore, respectively) and on and on goes the little plot.

Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels Review


Good
Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels has been described as the British Pulp Fiction, and on the surface, that would seem like an accurate depiction. It's got the usual cross-section of characters with witty tongues involved in varied illegal activities, that get themselves into very peculiar situations in which no one really survives unscathed. Nonetheless, the film seems to be missing something that characterized its predecessor. And right now, you're getting the feeling that I'm about to quickly file Lock, Stock as another Tarantino homage/copy-cat crime, but that's not quite it either.

Lock, Stockis in fact, probably the best film since Pulp Fiction in which there are no really good guys. Pulp Fiction, Lock, Stockbegins with what would seem to be a simple story, that quickly careens out of control. In this case, four buddies; Tom, Eddie, Bacon, and Soap, pool their money together to back can't lose Eddie at an unbeknownst-to-them rigged game of cards. Of course they get fleeced, and end up in heavy debt to the local heavy. What follows is a madcap plan to recoup the money by intercepting a heist Eddie has fortuitously discovered his neighbor is carrying out. The interrelation of the problems with the original heist, along with the interception of it by Eddie's gang, and a couple of other local illegal activities result in a frantic circle of destruction.

Snatch Review


Excellent
Madonna's new husband, Guy Ritchie, couldn't have timed his recent marriage any better. Intentional or not, it came a mere week before the opening of his new film Snatch, the follow-up to his Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. With Madonna as a willing shill, you couldn't ask for better publicity.

Turns out you didn't need it, Guy. Snatch is a film that stands perfectly on its own merits while it shoots bullet holes in everything in sight.
