Efron plays the serial killer Ted Bundy in 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile'.
Zac Efron has wowed his fans by revealing a first look of himself in the role of Ted Bundy, one of America’s most notorious serial killers, for his new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
The 30 year old actor is continuing his dramatic departure from his innocent High School Musical days, branching out further than ever in his new leading role. On Wednesday night, he took to Twitter and Instagram to share images from the set of him as Bundy, the notorious serial killer who killed at least 30 women and girls in the 1970s.
“Meet Ted,” the actor captioned the picture, adding the hashtag: “behind the scenes”.

As Tilda Swinton reteams with her Snowpiercer director, Korea's Bong Joon Ho, it's perhaps unsurprising that the resulting movie defies genres. Not only has it sparked a debate about Netflix-produced films that people want to see in cinemas, but it's also a story with huge political resonances laced through its premise. That said, this is essentially a movie about a girl and her beloved hippo-sized pig. And it's warm, witty and remarkably engaging.
Swinton plays twins Nancy and Lucy, who take over their family's multinational corporation after their ruthless father dies. With a desire to feed the world, Lucy has bred a series of gigantic pigs and placed them with farmers around the globe. Ten years later, her celebrity judge Johnny (Jake Gyllenhaal) crowns the winning pig as Okja, raised in the Korean mountains by teen Mija (An Seo Hyun) and her grandfather (Byun Heebong). But now Mija is horrified that they are taking her best friend away, so she sets out on an epic quest to Seoul to find Okja before she's put on a plane to America. Meanwhile, a group of animal rights activists led by Jay (Paul Dano) is also trying to free Okja, and they hatch a plan to take Mija to New York and stage a very public rescue.
The film has a snappy, witty tone that propels us into the story, with moments of satirical comedy, earthy humour and some exhilarating, inventively staged action. And the reason it works so well is due to the title character: thanks to seamless digital effects, Okja emerges as a smart, playful and brave creature whose bond with Mija is very strong indeed. This adds a powerful emotional kick, balancing the cartoonish but still remarkably textured performances from Swinton and Gyllenhaal. By contrast, An nicely underplays Mija, while Dano and his gang (including Lily Collins and The Walking Dead's Steven Yuen) add an intriguing edge of soulful compassion.

The actress has suffered with eating disorders in the past.
Lily Collins is currently promoting her latest movie 'To the Bone' which follows the emotional journey of a young woman dealing with anorexia. As it turns out, this was rooted in a deeply personal issue for the actress, who has recently confessed that she herself struggled with the illness in her youth.
Lily Collins once had an eating disorder
The subject of eating disorders is not something that is raised frequently in Hollywood films - perhaps because there is little sympathy in that department when young actresses are so often told to lose weight for particular roles. But Lily Collins is glad to be exploring the topic publicly in 'To The Bone'.

Deliberately unstructured, this likeable romantic comedy holds the audience's interest with its strikingly engaging cast and a slick visual style, but the plot is both contrived and underdeveloped. As the filmmakers try out some wacky slapstick, pointed political moments or a bit of darkly emotional drama, the movie's tone veers so wildly that we don't quite know where to look. And by never managing to crack the surface, the script leaves the actors with little to do but look good.
The story centres on two childhood friends: Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) grew up on the same street in England, developing romantic longings that they kept hidden. After a drunken teenage kiss, they rebound into the arms of other people: Rosie hooks up with the school hunk Greg (Christian Cooke), while Alex takes wannabe supermodel Bethany (Suki Waterhouse) to the big dance. Then Rosie and Alex's plan to go to university together in Boston is derailed by an unexpected pregnancy. Over the next 12 years they live on opposite sides of the Atlantic, trying to get on with their romantic lives. Alex finds a serious girlfriend (Tamsin Egerton) while Rosie re-connects with Greg and gets support from a pal (Jaime Winstone). But they never stop pining for each other.
Shot and edited in a bouncy rom-com style, it's immediately obvious where this is heading, so screenwriter Juliette Towhidi has to work overtime to throw the audience off the scent, which leaves the movie spinning in circles while we wait for the inevitable to happen. Fortunately, the characters are vivid enough to keep us entertained, as people move in and out of each others' lives providing the laughs and tears for Rosie and Alex, as well as the audience. Even if the characters are predictable and simplistic, Collins and Claflin manage to find moments of real depth along the way. Although it's difficult not to think that one proper conversation between these lifelong best pals would have saved them decades of frustration.

Mimi and her newest band The Mad Noise Factory feature on the movie's colourful soundtrack with 'Get Me Back'.
Mimi & The Mad Noise Factory are a Germany-based indie-pop band whose upbeat tune 'Get Me Back' from their new album has caught the attention of the soundtrack arrangers for forthcoming British comedy 'Love, Rosie' - and with good reason.
Mimi's new band The Mad Noise Factory unveiled their first collective album earlier this year
With a dynamic beat, quirky vocals and an infectiously catchy dance rhythm, 'Get Me Back' marks a perfect soundtrack song to a tale of long lost young love, lustful recklessness and romantic exuberance. Produced by English producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur), the track follows their previous single 'Heartbreaker', and features on their newest full-length offering 'Nothing But Everything', released in March 2014 through Warner Music Group Germany.
Love can be confusing, complicating and utterly gut-wrenching as Rosie painfully discovers on her journey to adulthood. She and Alex have been best friends since childhood, with any hint of a romance being only fleeting, and quickly replaced by someone else. At school they decide to go to university together in America, but while Alex lands his dream scholarship at Harvard, Rosie finds herself left behind with an unplanned pregnancy - with the father taking off pretty quickly. Alex and Rosie are determined to stay in contact, but when she makes the mistake of telling her colleague about him, she starts to wonder if she has lost him forever as they begin planning a wedding. As it slowly dawns on Rosie that she and Alex were made for each other, it becomes unclear how their next meeting will end - especially after 12 years.

Alex Stewart and Rosie Dunne are the best of friends struggling through the pressures of their teenage years; Alex is intent on losing his virginity to the pretty blonde girl he's interested in while Rosie is meanwhile having her own problems in the bedroom. Their friendship leads them to agree on jetting over to the US together for their university years, but it looks like Rosie's life is going to take a different turn entirely. In the next 12 years, they find their worlds transforming in more ways than they could've possibly imagined, but the matchless bond between them can only strengthen with time. And while their romantic lives stray away from each other, could they find themselves rekindling hidden feelings for one another in their futures?
