JD Salinger wasn't the easiest person in the world to play.
In the new biopic Rebel in the Rye, Nicholas Hoult plays reclusive author JD Salinger. It was a tricky role to play because Salinger, most famous for his 1951 novel 'The Catcher in the Rye', was such an enigmatic figure, and it required a lot of research to get into the right mindset.

"It was so intimidating," Hoult says. "And the more I learnt about him, the more I felt I needed to really do the man justice. He had such an intense but remarkable life. And how he came to create his masterpieces is such an incredible story. It's a great one to tell and hopefully something that people will want to see."

Nicholas Hoult, Henry Cavill and Logan Marshall-Green star in 'Sand Castle'
Private Matt Ocre is taught to be excited about the prospect of going to war, that he's lucky to have such an adventure and stories to tell people for the rest of his life. He doesn't see it that way though, and even tries to get medically discharged by deliberately slamming his hand in the door of an army vehicle. Unfortunately, it just doesn't do enough serious damage and he is forced to continue his mission with his comrades.

Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones talk about their new film Collide
In the high-speed car-chase thriller Collide, Nicholas Hoult plays a guy who goes to extreme lengths to pay for emergency medical treatment for his girlfriend, played by Felicity Jones. "I would describe it as thrilling and exciting," Hoult says. "It's an action-packed rush!"
The 27-year-old has been acting since he was a young boy, and enjoys drawing on his experiences. "I've managed to work with a lot of people I look up to," he says. "I remember while shooting the last X-Men watching James McAvoy do a couple of scenes, I was thinking 'Damn, this guy is so good,' and then being like, 'Oh sh*t! Nick, don't forget that you're in it too!'"

Nicholas Hoult started acting at age 7, then hit the big time starring opposite Hugh Grant in 2002's About a Boy when he was 13.
At 25, English actor, Nicholas Hoult is having one of his best years yet, seeing Mad Max: Fury Road become a major hit while he was filming his role in next year's X-Men: Apocalypse. But in between he returned to Britain to play a vicious record executive in the blacker-than-black comedy Kill Your Friends, based on John Niven's novel about 1990s Britpop.

Was he apprehensive about taking on Steven Stelfox, a role so different from his usual sympathetic characters? "No," he answers. "Weirdly, I kind of enjoyed being in his company. I'd be walking around town and occasionally I'd have to stop myself because I'd look at someone and hear Stelfox in my head. You know, what he'd think of them, describe them or what he'd want to do to them. It would happen a lot on the Tube."

First-time director Owen Harris boldly attempts a comedy even blacker than American Psycho or Filth with this 1990s Britpop satire, but he never quite gets the tone right. Based on the bestselling novel by John Niven (who also wrote the screenplay), the film lacks a single character the audience can identify with or root for. And since it's impossible to care about the slimy anti-hero, the movie ends up merely feeling mean-spirited.
The slimeball at the centre is Steven (Nicholas Hoult), an A&R man at Unigram Records at the peak of Britpop in 1997. He's had a run of hot new artists, and doesn't let his loathing of pop music slow him down, tormenting his assistant Rebecca (Georgia King), his faithful scout Darren (Craig Roberts) and his matey colleague Roger (James Corden). He's also so determined to get a promotion that he takes things to violent extremes, then becomes even more annoyed when the job goes to his hated rival Antony (Tom Riley). So now all he has left is the search for another vile musician he can turn into the next big thing.
The film has a sleek, snaky energy to it that nicely recreates the cut-throat atmosphere of the period. And Niven has a lot to say about how the music business abuses truly talented artists while promoting inept stars like Steven's aspiring girl band Songbirds. Essentially, this film is a full-on assault on a British society where self-absorbed jerks climb the corporate ladder because they're ambitious, not because they're actually good at anything. The one sense of balance in the story comes from a cop (Edward Hogg), who's investigating a murder but really wants Steven to help him launch his own musical career. In other words, the film is shouting its themes at the top of its voice, rather than letting them hit the target with quiet precision.

Libby Day is a fragile and unemployed woman struggling to get away from the demons of her past. As a child of just 7, she bore witness to the violent murder of her mother and two sisters and even stood up in court to accuse her older brother Ben of the crimes. People were happy to take her word for it when it was unearthed that he was involved in Satanic activity, but now more than 20 years on the whole trauma is finally back for a visit with consequences no-one could've foreseen. Broke after living off charity funds all her life, she readily accepts a cash payment to make an appearance at a meeting of the Kill Club; a group specialising in murder mysteries and who have a particular interest in the case of her family - namely because they do not believe her brother was the killer. While sceptical of their thoughts, she soon agrees to help them pick apart what happened, re-visiting her memories of that fateful night and even seeing her brother for the first time since his trial.

It's the mid 90's and the music scene in the UK is booming. Excess is the word of the decade and the music industry runs on a steady supply of drugs, booze and huge amounts of money. Steven Stelfox is a young A&R manager at one of London's biggest labels but in reality it's quite by chance that he's made it. It's a dog-eat-dog industry and when your ideas run out there's a good chance you'll be cast aside. Not wishing to be the next for the chopping block, Stelfox takes his career ambitions to a whole new level. How well would you survive when even your friends are your enemies?
Since its release in 2008, John Niven's book 'Kill Your Friends' has become a cult classic. Niven himself had worked at many record labels and inspired some of the themes behind the story. Whilst the story is fiction and no one was actually killed, many people in the industry draw many parallels to what actually happened during those years.
She took a break from filming 'X-Men: Apocalypse' in the Canadian city.
Hollywood A-list star Jennifer Lawrence took some time out of her manic filming schedule to visit a children’s hospital in Montreal, Canada and surprise some young patients. Obviously, there were pictures taken of her with the kids and chatting to staff, which is another reminder of why everybody loves J-Law. As if we needed another reason.
The 24 year old Hunger Games star is in the Canadian city filming X-Men: Apocalypse alongside James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and her ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. It’s rumoured to be the last time she stars as Mystique in the franchise before it’s refreshed with new blood next time around.
