Patrick Stewart has penned an emotive letter arguing for Britain to remain within the European Union ahead of the referendum later this month.

Writing in The Guardian on Thursday (June 2nd), precisely three weeks before the nation goes to the polls on June 23rd, the stage and film legend argued that many who are campaigned for so-called ‘Brexit’ should remember how the European Union came to be in the first place – as a way to heal Europe after two world wars.

'Green Room' Tops Our List Of 2016's Most Exciting Horrors


Patrick Stewart Imogen Poots Stephen King Anton Yelchin Jj Abrams John Goodman Natalie Dormer Sarah Wayne Callies

This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer. 

Green RoomMeet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'

1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

Robin Williams, Steve Martin, Tom Cruise: 10 Most Unexpected Bad Guys In Movies


Patrick Stewart Robin Williams Leonardo Dicaprio

Some actors are born to play bad guys; Christoph Waltz, Christopher Lee, Alan Rickman. We're comfortable with them being the antagonist. However, some evil roles come from actors that are so unlikely, it seriously gives us the creeps. Patrick Stewart is only the latest to warp our perception of him.

Here are ten of our favourite moments actors have gone beyond the good guy stereotype:

Green Room - Teaser Trailer


The Ain't Rights are a punk band looking for their big break and until that comes along, they're willing to tour and play any gig they're offered. When the band is given the chance to play a gig at short notice, they pack their bags and road trip to the Oregon venue.

The band work through their set of songs including a cover of The Dead Kennedys' track 'Nazi Punks F**k Off', some might say an odd choice of song given the current crowd of people they're playing to. As the band come off stage they return to the green room only to discover that they've stumbled upon a gruesome crime scene - a murder to be precise.

Locked in the green room and quickly evaluating their options, it seems that they're now the ones being targeted by the vicious venue owner, Darcy Banker, and his neo-Nazi gang. Held against their will, with no connection to the outside world, it becomes evident that Banker isn't going to allow the group to make it through the night alive.

James McAvoy
Say goodbye to those luscious locks, folks.

Director Bryan Singer took to Instagram on Friday, May 8 to share a photo of the professor Xavier of the "X-Men" film franchise sporting the character's signature look, reported Ace Showbiz.
