Is Damian Lewis A Certainty To Take Over James Bond Role?


Damian Lewis Daniel Craig James Bond Idris Elba Pierce Brosnan Tom Hardy

‘Homeland’ actor Damian Lewis looks set to be the one to take over the role of James Bond when Daniel Craig steps down as 007. According to the Sunday Mirror, Lewis has been given ‘an unofficial nod’ that he is producer's first choice, if Craig decides Spectre will be his last Bond outing.

Damian LewisDamian Lewis could be your new James Bond.

“If Daniel Craig leaves, it’s Damian Lewis who will be crowned the new Bond,” a ‘well placed source’ told the newspaper. “He is seen as an all-round international star who is perfect for the role. As he ages, he looks increasingly suave and sophisticated.”

Pierce Brosnan Says The New James Bond Will Be White And Male


Pierce Brosnan James Bond Idris Elba Daniel Craig Tom Hardy Hugh Jackman

Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan reckons that the next star to play 007 will be a white male. For months now, the rumour has been that ‘Luther’ actor Idris Elba would be the next actor cast as the suave British spy, but Brosnan doesn’t believe that the producers will be making that move yet.

“Anything is possible for sure, but I think he'll be male and he'll be white,” he told The Press Association in an interview on Wednesday (September 23rd). However, the 62 year old Irish star did add that “there's wonderful black actors out there who could be James Bond, and there's no reason why you cannot have a black James Bond.”

Doris Day Clint Eastwood Tom Hardy

Doris Day had denied reports that she is set to come out of retirement and make a return to the big screen in Clint Eastwood’s new movie. The 91 year old Hollywood legend has not appeared in a film since 1968 and now devotes her time to charity, the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

Tom Hardy Explains Why He Shot Down Reporter's Sexuality Question


Tom Hardy

Earlier this week Legend actor Tom Hardy hit the headlines when he cut off a reporter asking about his sexuality during a Toronto International Film Festival press conference. The reporter, from LGBT news outlet Daily Xtra, had tried to ask Hardy about his sexuality, but was quickly shot down by the actor in a clip which soon went viral.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Hardy has now explained why he was annoyed at the reporter's questions, calling the exchange ‘humiliating’. "That really, really annoyed me. It was just the inelegance of being asked in a room full of people,” Hardy said.

'It'd Be Good To Do It Again': Tom Hardy Wasn't Put Off By The Challenges Of 'Legend'


Tom Hardy

It's a filmmaking technique notoriously difficult to pull off, but Tom Hardy has nothing but fond recollections from facing the gruelling process of playing both the Kray twins in Brian Helgeland's explorative crime biopic 'Legend', even though he hadn't planned on landing both leads at the start.

Tom Hardy in LegendTom Hardy stars as Ronnie Kray and Reggie Kray in 'Legend'

Hardy admits that he only had eyes for the openly bisexual Ronnie Kray when he first read the script, confessing that he felt there was a lot more 'freedom' to playing that role. 'In hindsight, I had to be a bit more careful with Ron because there was a way of lambasting or being cartoonish to an extent where you miss the point of the clown effort', he says. 'It's not to joke about things but to create a certain level of humour whereby people laugh along and then don't realise that what they're laughing at is not something that's funny at all, it's incredibly serious.'

Tom Hardy Shrugs Off Awkward Question About His Sexuality At Press Conference


Tom Hardy

Legend actor Tom Hardy delivered an amusing put-down to a reporter who asked him a question about his sexuality during a press conference at Toronto International Film Festival.

The 37 year old English actor was fielding questions about his new movie, in which he plays the roles of both Ronnie and Reggie Kray, the East London gangsters who frequently made headlines in the ‘60s, when a reporter from LGBT site Daily Xtra asked him the following question.

“In the film, your character Ronnie is very open about his sexuality, but given interviews you’ve done in the past, your own sexuality seems a bit more ambiguous. Do you find it hard for celebrities to talk to media about their sexuality?”

Legend Gives Tom Hardy A Double Challenge


Tom Hardy Brian Helgeland

The Kray twins are part of London lore, iconic gangsters who ran the city in the swinging 1960s. They've been portrayed on-screen before (by the Kemp brothers in the 1990 drama The Krays), and Oscar-winning writer turned director Brian Helgeland opted to cast Tom Hardy in both roles for his new film Legend.

Tom Hardy in 'Legend'Tom Hardy is double trouble in crime drama 'Legend'

Word has it that Helgeland wanted Hardy to play Reggie in the film, but when he read the script Hardy was drawn to the more colourful Ronnie. "There was a moment when I could have come away just playing Reggie," Hardy says of his first meeting with Helgeland. "We could have gone and found a superlative character actor to play Ronnie, and that would have been the best of everything. But I was like, 'Well, I feel Ronnie!' So which actor am I gonna give up Ronnie to if I play Reggie? I can't have that. Because that's all the fun there, and Reggie's so straight." By the end of their meeting, Helgeland said, "I'll give you Ron if you give me Reg."

Legend Review

Good

Written and directed with a rakish swagger, and featuring two full-on performances from Tom Hardy, this true London gangster drama is hugely entertaining, even if it feels undercooked. Aside from that generic title, the film basically has no plot at all, and it strips real-life people of their complexity. It's as if the filmmakers were afraid to challenge the audience in any way. But the edgy mix of comedy and violence is riveting.

The events recounted took place over about two years in the early 1960s, although the film's anecdotal structure makes it feel more like a decade. As it begins, the fearsome young Kray brothers (both played by Tom Hardy) are consolidating their gangland grip on East London and expanding around the city, with their next target being South London boss Charlie Richardson (Paul Bettany). Reggie Kray is the tough-minded businessman, while identical twin Ronnie is a terrifying thug who happens to be openly gay at a time when being so was illegal. As they blatantly manipulate the rule of law, a Scotland Yard inspector (Christopher Ecclestone) is desperately looking for a way to take them down. Meanwhile, Reggie is romancing the 16-year-old Frances (Emily Browning), much to the annoyance of her imperious mother (Tara Fitzgerald).

The tumultuous relationship between Reggie and Frances is the only thing that adds a sense of narrative momentum to the film. Otherwise, it's a series of set-pieces that take a darkly humorous approach to family clashes and criminal violence. Writer-director Brian Helgeland infuses even the grisliest brutality with an amusing smirk, which makes the movie much more engaging than expected. And Hardy storms through the film with real charisma in both roles, as the steely, magnetic Reggie and the more unstable, fearsome Ronnie. Both performances are scene-stealing, nicely conveying how these men managed to hold the entire city in their grip, even though they were only in their early 30s at the time.

We all have pictures from our past we’d rather nobody see – ever - whether it was an outfit which didn’t quite work or a particularly bad haircut. Some of The Dark Knight actor Tom Hardy’s photographs, from the days when Myspace was the social media of choice, surfaced earlier this summer and caused quite a stir. Fortunately, Hardy isn’t remotely embarrassed about them.

With speculation mounting as to who might be playing the next James Bond if Spectre turns out to be Daniel Craig’s final movie, Tom Hardy has put himself forward as a candidate, saying that he would consider playing the British spy.

He’ll soon be doing double duty on the big screen as both Kray twins in thriller Legend, but Hollywood hunk Tom Hardy has revealed that he would have joined the Royal Marines had acting not worked out for him.

Is Damian Lewis Set To Replace Daniel Craig As James Bond?


Damian Lewis Daniel Craig Idris Elba Tom Hardy

‘Homeland’ star Damian Lewis has emerged as one of the frontrunners to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, after a string of bets caused bookies to slash their odds on the actor. Current Bond Daniel Craig is widely believed to be stepping down as 007 later this year following the release of his fourth film in the franchise, Spectre.

Bookie William Hill is now offering 6/4 odds on Lewis becoming the next Bond, having previously put him at 25/1. The move comes after a flurry of £200 bets were recently placed on the ‘Homeland’ actor.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Was A Special Challenge For Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy has made a name for himself with films like 'Inception', 'The Dark Knight Rises', 'Warrior' and 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy', but nothing quite prepared him for the full-on challenge of taking over as Mad Max.

"When I got over the initial jubilation and excitement of being offered the role, I suddenly realised that Mad Max is synonymous with Mel Gibson," Hardy says. "That was a little bit daunting, and possibly people were going to dislike the change. So I thought the right thing to do was go and meet Mel Gibson, because he's part of the Mad Max family. It's like I'm the new wife who has to go and meet the old wife."

'Pitch Perfect 2' Outruns 'Mad Max' At US Box Office


Anna Kendrick Tom Hardy Mel Gibson George Miller

The latest Mad Max film may well be one of the best-reviewed action thrillers of all time, with a huge Metascore of 89 - well above the average for the genre - but it seems Max isn't quite tough enough to beat the Barden Bellas to the number-one spot.

Anna Kendrick at Geffen PlayhouseAnna Kendrick could be topping the charts this weekend

According to Deadline, first-day ticket estimates at the US box office put Fury Road at number two with $16.8m, while Pitch Perfect 2 is well ahead with $27.8m for Friday - that's almost double what its predecessor made over the full three-day period during its first weekend of nationwide release back in 2012.

Mad Max: Fury Road Returns George Miller To His Roots


George Miller Tom Hardy Charlize Theron

It's been 30 years since George Miller completed his trilogy of movies starring Mel Gibson: Mad Max (1979), The Road Warrior (1981) and Beyond Thunderdome (1985). In the intervening years he's kept busy with the Babe and Happy Feet franchises. But now he's back with Mad Max: Fury Road, which he refuses to call either a sequel or a reboot. He's just freshening the franchise, like the James Bond movies do every few years.

Tom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury RoadTom Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road

And he said this week that he has "other stories and other scripts" ready to go if Fury Road is a box office success. "It really depends on whether everyone, particularly me, has an appetite to go back into the wasteland," he says of the post-apocalyptic desert setting. "It's like asking a woman who's just given birth, 'You wanna try it again?'"

Mad Max: Fury Road Review


Extraordinary

Leave it to a veteran to show the young sparks how to do it: it's been 30 years since George Miller last visited his post-apocalyptic hero Max Rockatansky, and now he's back with the best-staged action thriller of the year, a blockbuster that dares to have meaningful themes and complex characters. He also recreates Mad Max as a kind of James Bond franchise with a story that sits alongside the earlier films, not before or after, and an actor who brings a new energy to the role.

In a desert wasteland where people trade water and oil to survive, Max (Tom Hardy) is a loner haunted by the death of his family. Then he's captured by a gang from the Citadel, a towering rock city run by the tyrant Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), who has positioned himself as a god who keeps his enslaved people on a short leash. On a mission to collect oil, Joe's top imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) veers her war-rig off into the desert. So Joe sends a gang after her. Leading the charge is the gung-ho Nux (Nicholas Hoult), who uses Max, strapped to his car like a grille ornament, as a blood-bag to supply energy. But after a series of clashes involving three other gangs of desert marauders, Max and Nux end up on board Furiosa's rig, in which she is hoping to smuggle Joe's five young wives to safety.

The plot itself is fairly blunt, which means that the film requires very little dialogue (Max doesn't speak at all for the first 45 minutes, mainly because his houth is actually bolted shut). Even so, Miller fills every shot with telling details that strengthen the characters and provide insight into what they are doing, building more intriguing relationships with suspicious glances than most filmmakers do with endless conversation.

The 39 year old actress, who portrays Imperator Furiosa in George Miller’s re-boot of his own original imagining of a post-apocalypse Australia, was speaking on ‘Live! With Kelly and Michael’ on Monday, and she vented her frustration at the typical depiction of women in science fiction films.

Gary Oldman Brands The USSR Government The 'Real Killer' In 'Child 44'

Gary Oldman stars alongside Tom Hardy in the Soviet thriller 'Child 44'; a film that was recently banned by Russia for its depictions of events during the era of Stalin. Oldman plays an army general, who he dubs a 'hero' in the piece.

It's no wonder Daniel Espinosa's latest movie has caused a stir overseas. Based on the true story of serial killer Andrei Chikatilo (also known as the Butcher of Rostov), it reveals how the Soviet government refused to acknowledge a series of horrific crimes being so determined maintain the facade of a crime-fee communist state. A disgraced military police officer named Leo Demidov (portrayed by the man of many voices Tom Hardy with another incredible accent) takes it upon himself to investigate, only to be met with denial and threats at every turn. Joining him in his case is Gary Oldman's character, the formidable and initially sceptical General Mikhail Nesterov.

As 'Child 44' opens in cinemas this weekend, novelist Tom Rob Smith is praising Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace as the perfect actors to bring his characters to life on the big screen. But since the story is set in the Soviet Union, Russia's officials have had a very different reaction to the movie.

Indeed, Russia's culture ministry has banned the movie across the country, saying that it "distorts" historical facts. The story is a fictionalised version of the true case of a serial killer who was executed in 1994 for killing 52 children and women. The film, by contrast, is set at the beginning of the Cold War in 1953.

Child 44 Review


Good

A meaty, fascinating story is splintered into three plot strands that battle for the viewer's attention, so while the film is never boring, it's also oddly uninvolving. Fortunately, it has an excellent cast and is shot with skill and a relentless intensity to feel like a big, epic-style dramatic thriller with heavy political overtones.

After a scene-setting prologue, the story starts in 1953 Moscow, where Leo (Tom Hardy) is a war hero now working in the military police, purging the city of its spies. Or at least its suspected spies. In the Soviet socialist utopia, crime officially doesn't exist, but Leo finds it difficult to tell his best pal Alexei (Fares Fares) that his 8-year-old son was killed in a train accident when he was so clearly tortured and murdered. Ordered by his boss (Vincent Cassel) to let it go, and menaced by his rival colleague Vasili (Joel Kinnaman), Leo continues investigating, resulting in a reprimand that sees Leo and his wife Raisa (Noomi Rapace) relocated to the the grim industrial city of Volsk. But when another young boy's body appears here, Leo gets his new boss (Gary Oldman) to see the connection.

There are at least three main plots in this film, and the filmmakers oddly never allow one to become the central strand. There's the mystery involving this brutal, unhinged serial killer (Paddy Considine) stalking boys along the railway. There's the thriller about Leo being brutally taunted by Vasili, who has a thing for Raisa and is trying to crush them for good. But the only emotionally engaging strand is Leo and Raisa's complex marriage relationship, which takes a couple of unexpected turns. Along the way, there are several action sequences shot with shaky cameras and edited so they're impossible to follow. And there's a sense that the film also wants to be a grandiose Russian epic with its expansive cinematography and big orchestral score.

Child 44 Trailer


During the Second World War, many Russian men were able to make a name for themselves as heroes. Returning home to their victorious country, many discovered that the Communist utopia they had fought to defend may have been more fictitious than they originally thought. For Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), this truth comes harshly. Having become a hero for his efforts in the war against Germany, Demidov is given the job as a secret policeman. But when he comes across the case of a potential serial killer that hunts children, his superiors refuse to acknowledge the crime, maintaining that they live in a perfect world. After being exiled from Moscow for refusing to drop the case, Demidov must search for the real truth behind the killings, despite knowing that the truth could be dangerous.

Leonardo Dicaprio Stars In Alejandro González Inarritu's Follow Up To 'Birdman' [Photos]


Leonardo Dicaprio Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Tom Hardy

'Birdman' still has yet to open in some countries and already has multiple Academy Award nominations. One of these nomination is a 'Best Director' nod for Alejandro González Iñárritu, which will certainly help with his upcoming film's promotion.

Leonardo Dicaprio as the mythic trapper John Glass in 'The Revenant'

'The Revenant' is based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Michael Punke, and follows the story of American fur trapper Hugh Glass, who was injured by a grizzly bear on a hunt, and left for dead by his fellow trappers. After coming to and discovering that he had suffered horrific wounds before being left 200 miles from civilisation, Glass was forced to crawl that distance through an area of disputed land that various Native American tribes were fighting over. All the time, Glass was unarmed, alone, and close to death from his wounds. And if you haven't guessed by now, yes, it is based on a true story.
