Tom Hardy Inks Leonardo DiCaprio's Name On Him After Losing Bet


Tom Hardy Leonardo Dicaprio

Tom Hardy has stayed true to his word and apparently gone and got a tattoo dedicated to his friend and co-star Leonardo Dicaprio, after losing a bet two years ago at the 2016 Academy Awards. Of course, it's no big deal for Tom, who has plenty of ink on his body already.

You can always trust Tom Hardy not to go back on an agreement. The 40-year-old actor has paid the price of making a bet with his 'The Revenant' co-star Leonardo DiCaprio by getting a tattoo on his right bicep reading 'Leo Knows All'. It seems it came after Leo bet that Tom would be nominated for an Oscar, and Tom bet that he wouldn't.

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy has taken to his Instagram account this week to tease the end of filming on his upcoming Sony movie 'Venom', in which he'll play the titular character, otherwise known as Marvel Comics' Eddie Brock. Not much has been revealed about the plot which fans will see go down when the film makes its way to the big screen, but the fact that Hardy is involved in bringing the villain to life has been enough to keep chatter and hype at a high.

With the film scheduled to make its debut in October of this year, more promotional material is expected to trickle out in the coming weeks, but Hardy has kicked things off early with his Instagram post, which you can check out below:

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy’s fans have reacted with pleasant surprise after a long-lost ‘rap mixtape’ of music the actor made in the late 1990s re-surfaced online this week.

The 18 tracks on the recording were made in demo form in 1999, but have never seen the light of day until now. A man named Edward Tracy – calling himself Eddie Too Tall – who wrote and produced the set posted it on Bandcamp earlier this week.

Hardy – known and credited under his rap pseudonym ‘Tommy No.1’ – is listed as the writer and performer of the lyrics.

There have been some big rumours swirling around the release of Sony's upcoming Marvel movie 'Venom', with Tom Hardy taking the titular role and currently in intense training for the flick. Working on boxing, kickboxing and MMA fighting for the movie, Hardy has been working alongside Mene and Nathan Jones, who have been helping him hone his skills in each of the disciplines.

No official footage of Hardy has yet been released, but the actor is no stranger to teasing the role on his social media, posting a series of pictures from the set and behind-the-scenes to whet the appetites of fans. It's something like nothing he's ever done before, with the character he's playing, also known as Eddie Brock, being someone who bonds with an alien symbiote.

Riz Ahmed Reportedly In Talks With Sony For 'Venom' Role


Riz Ahmed Tom Hardy

Riz Ahmed’s career looks like it’s continuing to go from strength to strength, with reports that the British star is in talks with Sony to star in the Spider-Man spin-off movie Venom, alongside fellow Brit Tom Hardy.

Ever since he broke through to the wider industry’s consciousness with a memorable supporting role in 2014's Nightcrawler, the 34 year old British-Pakistani actor has landed starring roles in Jason Bourne, Star Wars spin-off Rogue One and TV series ‘The OA’ and ‘Girls’.

However, Variety reports on Thursday (August 10th) that the actor is now in talks with Sony studios to star in Marvel Comics’ Venom – a film NOT related to the recent Spider-Man: Homecoming, confusingly – possibly as the extremely popular character Carnage.

Dunkirk Review

Essential

Britain's epic 1940 evacuation of Dunkirk has been dramatised on film before, but no one has taken an approach like Christopher Nolan. Not that this is a surprise, since Nolan has made a career of fiercely inventive filmmaking. But this might be his masterpiece: a relatively simple story told with creative verve, relentlessly growing intensity, emotional resonance and the weight of history.

He recounts the events on three timelines. Over the course of a week, young soldier Tommy (rising star Fionn Whitehead) finds himself on the beach at Dunkirk amid 400,000 soldiers hemmed in from behind by the Germans and looking for some way to get across the Channel to England. But every ship he finds is sunk in front of him, or under him, as German pilots drop bombs from the sky. Meanwhile over the course of one day, English yachtsman Dawson (Mark Rylance) and his sons (Tom Glynn-Carney and Barry Keoghan) head off to do what they can as part of an armada of small civilian boats. And in the sky above over the course of an hour, spitfire pilot Farrier (Tom Hardy) engages the Luftwaffe in a series of aerial battles.

Nolan skilfully edits these three time-strands together into a narrative that continually loops back on itself, showing events from different angles. It sometimes feels a bit repetitive, but that's the point, and the result is increasingly resonant as it recounts the events from three internal perspectives. In the focal roles, Whitehead, Rylance and Hardy offer distinct angles on heroism and survival. These are powerfully engaging performances that reveal men merely doing what they can in seemingly impossible situations.

Dunkirk - Trailer and Featurette


It's 1940 and World War II is in full swing. Allied soldiers from Britain, Belgium, Canada and France at stationed at Dunkirk ready to pull France from the grip of the Germans. However, they soon discover that they are completely surrounded by enemy forces who have them so trapped that they no longer have use for tanks. Confined in the open space of the Dunkirk beaches with nowhere left to hide and definitely nowhere to run, the soldiers face almost certain death as the air strikes begin. Their only hope is to sail across the English Channel to safety, but with enemy planes showing no mercy their survival will be miraculous. But these are allied forces aren't about to surrender, no matter what happens. Their courage and determination is about to save more than 300,000 men.

Tom Holland 'Excited' About Tom Hardy's 'Venom' Movie


Tom Holland Tom Hardy

Though Marvel Studios currently have the right to bring the 'Spider-Man' property to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there has been what we imagine is a hugely complicated agreement with Sony Pictures to allow the latter company to bring a film based on the Spidey villain Venom to the big screen. Now, with confirmation that Tom Hardy will be the actor stepping into that role and a release date set for October 5, 2018, rumours and information regarding the flick are now beginning to creep into the spotlight.

Tom Holland is looking forward to Sony Pictures release 'Venom'Tom Holland is looking forward to Sony Pictures release 'Venom'

We know for sure that Scott Rosenburg is writing the screenplay for the movie alongside Jeff Pinkner, and Marvel villain Carnage is looking set to take centre-stage as the primary antagonist. Aside from that and the previously-mentioned casting however, much is yet to be revealed; not surprising when the film's release is still over 12 months away.

Tom Hardy As Jafar? 'Aladdin' Remake Embroiled In 'White-Washing' Controversy


Tom Hardy Guy Ritchie

The people behind the forthcoming live action adaptation of Disney's 'Aladdin' have incited outrage on social media this week after it came out that Tom Hardy was in talks to play the villainous Jafar. Understandably, the actor is now in the midst of 'white-washing' accusations.

While Tom Hardy would no doubt make an excellent nemesis of Aladdin, the point is that this is arguably yet another example of Hollywood snubbing diverse actors in favour of white stars despite the context of the actual story. It's still a rumour, however, and there may be Asian actors in talks yet - but Tom is a big favourite of 'Aladdin' director Guy Ritchie.

Dunkirk Trailer


In one of the biggest military disasters in British history, 400,000 soldiers found themselves stranded on the beaches of Dunkirk in France in 1940 in the midst of World War II. Their journey was about releasing the allied France from the grip of the Germans, but when they find themselves surrounded by enemy forces, with nowhere left to hide their options become limited. Determined not to surrender to the Nazis, an incredible emergency evacuation begins as bomb after bomb is dropped on the fleeing men. The Royal Air Force and British Navy vessels rush to the aid of their trapped troops, as well as boats from brave civilians, and together they manage to save over 300,000 men from the terrifying attack in Operation Dynamo.

Tom Hardy Will Return To 'Peaky Blinders' As Alfie Solomons


Tom Hardy

'Peaky Blinders' fans rejoice, as Tom Hardy has been spotted on the set of the BBC series in full costume as London gangster Alfie Solomons. Though the actor is in high demand right now, it would appear he has found time to reprise his role in the fourth season of the critically-acclaimed show, as he shot scenes on location in Toxeth, Liverpool earlier this week.

Tom confessed on the red carpet, as he stood in his fancy three-piece suit and a groomed beard, that he had hoped that more naked scenes got into the final cut and that he had to be persuaded to wear the loincloth. He also appeared to negate rumours that he was to make a cameo in 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'.

Not Sexiest Man Alive Material? Ryan Gosling And 9 Others Who Never Made The Cut


Ryan Gosling Leonardo Dicaprio Jamie Foxx Michael Fassbender Jason Momoa Gael Garcia Bernal Bruno Mars Jared Leto Jon Bon Jovi Tom Hardy

So Dwayne Johnson was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year; a decision that has been the source of both praise and confusion. Praise because he's an excellent role model with enormous muscles and because he's mixed race, and confusion because all the obvious choices haven't been exhausted yet.

Here are ten more Hollywood heartthrobs who deserve to be named 'Sexiest Man Alive' sooner rather than later.

Sorry Guys But Harry Styles Is Not In The First 'Dunkirk' Trailer


Harry Styles Tom Hardy Christopher Nolan Mark Rylance Cillian Murphy

On Friday the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming WWII epic Dunkirk dropped, showing us our first glimpses of the Dark Knight director’s first film since 2014’s Interstellar. But for some, Dunkirk is about something else entirely, because the film features the acting debut of One Direction’s Harry Styles.

As usual when anything vaguely One Direction-y happens, their army of fans were out in force on social media and on Friday they weren’t happy. After being teased with photos of Harry and his new short hair filming scenes from the movie, the heartthrob was nowhere to be found in the just under a minute long trailer.

Leonardo Dicaprio Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Tom Hardy

Leonardo Dicaprio has revealed he slept in animal carcasses and ate raw bison on the set of new movie The Revenant. In the Western, directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, DiCaprio plays frontiersman Hugh Glass, who sets out on a revenge mission against his hunting team after they leave him for dead and murder his young son, following a bear mauling.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies, DiCaprio said, "I can name 30 or 40 sequences that were some of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do. Whether it’s going in and out of frozen rivers, or sleeping in animal carcasses, or what I ate on set. (I was) enduring freezing cold and possible hypothermia constantly.”

Daniel Craig Refuses To Be Drawn On James Bond Future


Daniel Craig James Bond Idris Elba Damian Lewis Tom Hardy

With the release of the highly-anticipated Spectre now imminent, Daniel Craig seems to have changed his tune about the prospects of continuing to be James Bond after recently landing himself in hot water after saying rather “slash his wrists” than play 007 again.

That is to say, he now says he “doesn’t really care” about who will take over as the British spy when he eventually finishes. In the last fortnight, rumours have maintained that Craig has reversed his position and signed up for two more Bond films.

However, when interviewed by The Sun, the 47 year old actor refused to be drawn on what decision he had made. “I have the right to change my mind any time I want to, and sometimes I say things like I did two days after finishing shooting for eight months. I said what was on my mind. That’s the way I’ve always spoken,” he said matter-of-factly.
