Biography by

Risen Trailer

After Jesus of Nazareth is crucified and laid to rest in a sealed tomb by the Romans following wild claims of his being King of the Jews by his followers, it is up to a sceptical Centurion named Clavius to quell subsequent rumours of his rising from death. With talk of his resurrection as the Messiah, Pontius Pilate is facing a possible uprising by angry civilians of Jerusalem, and when it's discovered that his body has gone missing from his grave, Clavius and his assistant Lucius have only a short time to discover what's happened to him, not wishing for the Emperor to return to chaos. They suspect his disciples have stolen the corpse and so order the retrieval of all recently deceased men, but when they get no further to finding him, will they be forced to accept an extraordinary, impossible truth?

One unexpected benefit from starring in the Harry Potter films is apparently the chance to test out the new additions at Orlando’s Wizarding World before anyone else. Several HP stars, including Tom Felton, Bonnie Wright, Matthew Lewis and Helena Bonham Carter visited the park this week and had a walk around the brand new Diagon Ally extension and take another dip in the wizarding world they spent over a decade working on.

Actor Tom Felton, who plays Harry's school nemesis Draco Malfoy, said Universal Studios' Diagon Alley attraction is better than the movie set.

Belle Review


The plot feels like a Jane Austen novel infused with a hot-potato political issue, but this is actually a true story. It's been somewhat fictionalised, but the central facts are accurate, and while the production is perhaps a bit too polished for its own good, the solid acting and filmmaking make the story involving and provocative. And its themes feel just as relevant today.

In 1769 London, a young half-black girl named Dido Belle is taken by her soldier father (Matthew Goode) to live with his uncle, the Lord Chief Justice Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson). With his wife (Emily Watson) and sister (Penelope Winton), he is already caring for another niece, and the two girls grow up as inseparable friends. Hidden from society, Dido (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) inherits a small fortune from her father. And while Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) is penniless, her white skin makes her a more suitable spouse. Then family friend Lady Ashford (Miranda Richardson) foists her son James (Tom Felten) on Elizabeth. To their horror, his brother Oliver (James Norton) falls for Dido. But she's more interested in an impoverished law student (Sam Reid).

Along with these rather standard period-movie romantic shenanigans, there's a major subplot about Lord Mansfield's imminent ruling in the first court case to take on the slave trade, which could destabilise the entire British Empire. And this is where the film jolts into something significant: the UK's top judge had an adopted mixed-race daughter who probably influenced the first landmark decision against slavery. Meanwhile, director Amma Asante also vividly portrays the gritty realities of this young black woman's precarious position in society.

In Secret Review


Filmmaker Charlie Stratton takes a rather obvious approach to Emile Zola's iconic 1867 novel Therese Raquin, ramping up the melodrama while drenching everything in shadowy doom and gloom. It's such a bleak film that it sometimes feels like a spoof, pushing every emotional story element to the breaking point. But the resilient premise still has something to say.

In deeply repressed 19th century French society, Therese (Elizabeth Olsen) is an orphan raised by her over-involved aunt (Jessica Lange), sharing a bed with her sickly cousin Camille (Tom Felton). When she comes of age, Therese is simply expected to marry Camille, after which all three move to Paris to open a shop. Soon Therese meets Camille's old pal Laurent (Oscar Isaac), who sparks her lust in ways the wheezy Camille never could. And as they begin a torrid affair, Therese and Laurent know that they can only be together after Camille is dead. So they hatch a nefarious plan, but life doesn't play out quite as they expect it to.

Writer-director Stratton makes everything so stylised that it can't help feeling stagey, with streets, sets and costumes that are relentlessly drab. The main colour scheme is dark greys and browns, and everything is swamped in murky shadows as the characters swap anguished glances. The actors do what they can with this. Olsen and Isaac manage to generate some sweaty chemistry, which transforms into something very different in the final act. Felton finds some humanity underneath Camille's obnoxious exterior. Lange merrily chomps the scenery as the glowering, over-reacting matriarch. And casting Matt Lucas, Mackenzie Crook and Shirley Henderson in key supporting roles can't help but add some unexpected comedy ("I have a touch of the vapours!").

Therese Raquin is a young woman living with her aunt and cousin Camille. One day Madame Raquin informs her that she and Camille are to be married after which they will settle in Paris. Though it was not a pairing of her choosing, Therese tries to attract some interest from her rather unpleasant cousin who appears to be shrugging away her every advance, even on their wedding night. In Paris, Camille meets his childhood friend Laurent, a painter, who they invite to stay. Intrigued, Therese soon finds herself engaging in an illicit and passionate affair with him behind her husband and aunt's back.

Belle Trailer

Dido Elizabeth Belle is the mixed race daughter of Royal Navy officer Captain John Lindsay resulting from his affair with an African woman. Desperate for his only child to receive a comfortable upbringing, he takes her back to England and begs his uncle, Lord Mansfield, to take her in and care for her as their own. As much as she is treated well and enjoys the company of her cousin Lady Elizabeth Murray, she finds herself an outcast with no specified social status and disallowed from dining with her family on social occasions all because of her colour. While she is shunned by almost everybody, one man takes an interest in her; John Davinier, the apprentice of Lord Mansfield. However, both her great-uncle and John's parents are averse to the idea of their marriage - though their shocking love story forces Mansfield to re-think his own feelings about race and family.

Video - Tom Felton Pleases Fans At The 2011 Fan Expo In Toronto

British actor Tom Felton, perhaps best known for his portrayal of antagonist Draco Malfoy in the phenomenally successful 'Harry Potter' film series, answers questions from fans at the 2011 Fan Expo in Toronto, Canada. As he signs photos, he avoids answering questions put forward by a local radio station.

The most recent film in the Harry Potter series, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2' recently opened in cinemas and quickly became the third highest grossing film of all time and the highest grossing film of this year. Tom Felton can currently be seen in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes Review

Rebooting this franchise seemed somewhat iffy until we heard it would involve Weta performance-capture technology (complete with Serkis). And indeed, it's an eye-popping, involving summer movie that manages to layer thoughtful substance with the lively action.

Will (Franco) is a San Francisco scientist experimenting with a new Alzheimer's medication he hopes will cure his father (Lithgow). But things take an unexpected turn when his greedy boss (Oyelowo) gets rid of his lab-test chimps, leaving Will to raise infant ape Caesar (Serkis) in secret. But Caesar's super-human intelligence can't keep him out of the clutches of the nasty father-son animal controllers (Cox and Felton), who badly underestimate him.

Can Will and his chimp-expert girlfriend (Pinto) sort out the mess before a furious Caesar takes matters into his own capable hands?
