Spark is a teenage monkey living in an underground bunker on the virtually destroyed planet Bana, alongside his best friends Chunk and Vix - a pig mechanic and a fox warrior respectively. Once upon a time, the planet was an incredible place to live, but with the arrival of the ruthless General Zhong thirteen years ago, it has become a wasteland. It's a dangerous world out there, but Spark wants to go out on missions with the other survivors and prove that he has what it takes to aid them in taking their planet back. But rescuing the Queen and his own parents from Zhong's prison-like rule is much harder than he ever could have anticipated.

The 76 year old actor made the revelation to support a new research programme from Oxford University into the benefits of medicinal marijuana.
Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed that he uses legally prescribed marijuana every day so that he can allay the symptoms of arthritis, which runs in his family.
The 76 year old Logan star, and long-standing icon of the stage and screen, made the admission in a statement he issued to support a new effort by Oxford University to explore the possible benefits of cannabis-based medicines. In it, he revealed that since 2015 he frequently uses a cannabis-based spray, ointment, and edible marijuana in his battle to keep at bay, and even reverse, the debilitating condition.

The pair re-united as Wolverine and Charles Xavier one last time on 'Logan'.
If you have ever seen them together off the set of 'Logan', you will know that Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart make very great friends indeed. After working together on the 'X-Men' and 'Wolverine' films for seventeen years, they have developed quite the bond - a chemistry obvious in their latest film 'Logan'.
Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star in 'Logan'
'Logan' may well be the last time Hugh and Patrick play their respective roles of Wolverine and Professor X, and that only made this third and final Wolverine movie all the more intense. These characters are facing troubles they've never had before as age finally catches up with them - a factor that both the actors can relate to as they hang up their X-Men boots.

'Logan' sees another side to the 'X-Men' leader.
For Sir Patrick Stewart's last hurrah as Professor Charles Xavier in the third and final Wolverine film 'Logan', the actor really got to spread his wings with the character. No longer is the leader of the X-Men a level-headed wise old mutant, he's an unhinged and unpredictable mess.
Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart star in 'Logan'
Even mutants get old, as we see with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the final installation of his spin-off film series. He doesn't heal as quickly as he used to, which means that he never gets a chance to get on top of his game before the next fight comes around. Professor X, however, is a whole other story; age has hit him in a way no-one could have expected.

He wants to band together with his US friends to help 'fight' Donald Trump.
Sir Patrick Stewart has decided to show his support for the American people in the best way possible; by requesting US citizenship so that he may help 'fight' the oppressive policies that are being put in place in the wake of President Donald Trump's election.
Patrick Stewart applies for US citizenship
The 'Logan' star has always been vocal about his political views, and indeed most recently about his feelings towards Donald Trump when he suggested in a Tweet that his recent stay near the White House was causing some sleeping issues.

Hugh Jackman returns to his signature role one last time (so he says), reuniting with filmmaker James Mangold, who also directed 2013's The Wolverine. But this doesn't feel like any other X-Men movie; it strikes a sombre, gritty tone from the start to take the audience on a dark and rather brutal road trip. So while it feels rather long and repetitive, the movie also has a strong emotional kick.
It's set in the year 2029, when mutants have been wiped off the planet, and no new ones have been born for years. Hiding out in a drunken haze as a Texas limo driver, Logan aka Wolverine (Jackman) has stashed Charles aka Professor X (Patrick Stewart) across the border in Mexico, watched over by albino caretaker Caliban (Stephen Merchant). Then a nurse (Elizabeth Rodriguez) appears asking for Logan's help to transport the young Laura (Dafne Keen) to North Dakota. And Laura clearly has a genetic connection with Logan. It also turns out that she has escaped from a Mexico City hospital, so as Logan, Charles and Laura hit the road, the ruthless henchman Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and sinister Dr Rice (Richard E. Grant) are hot on their trail.
Mangold holds all of this in careful control, never tipping over into the usual whiz-bang Hollywood superhero action chaos (the violence is especially grisly). The story moves at a steady pace that adds an involving note of desperation to each sequence. This also makes the movie feel a bit repetitive and even wheel-spinning at times. Since the baddies are able to stay right on the heroes' heels, it's clear that even a nicely offhandedly sojourn with a farmer (Eriq La Salle) and his family will be short-lived. But the gnawing intensity, while never quite building into proper suspense, gets deep under the skin as it fleshes out the characters.

In a rather strange discussion, Stewart revealed to Graham Norton that he believed he had been circumcised as a child until very recently.
File this one under bizarre: Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed that he used to believe that he was circumcised for the vast majority of his life – until his wife told him he actually wasn’t!
The 76 year old screen and stage legend appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, in an episode due to air on Friday (February 24th), to talk about his new movie Logan, in which he stars as X-Men head Professor Charles Xavier for the final time.
Sir Patrick Stewart's conversation on 'The Graham Norton Show' was rather eyebrow-raising
Jackman even took a pay cut to ensure they could make the R-rated movie.
Studio bosses were initially concerned that Logan, the final film in the Wolverine franchise, would be too dark, according to Twentieth Century Fox Film chairman Stacey Snider.
Speaking at an Q&A session, Snider admitted that there was even a debate that the film, which sees Hugh Jackman’s character now past his prime, would be just “freakin’ boring” for audiences.

In an almost fourth-wall-breaking episode, the latest installment of the Wolverine movie series acknowledges the 'X-Men' comic book series. But this time Logan is far from the superhero his fans are reading about. Age has finally caught up with him - as it does with everyone - and he's no longer as fast or as agile as he used to be. His injuries don't heal as quickly as they used to either, but he's not the only one dealing with the crippling effect of old age. He's currently caring for Professor X in a hide-out, but their lives are about to become disrupted once again with the arrival of a new mutant. Laura is an 11-year-old girl with powers and abilities that match Logan's own. There are dark forces closing in on her, however, and as much as she is capable of taking care of herself, she needs guidance, protection and discipline from somebody who knows her struggle.

The actor joined thousands of protestors in London who marched together against the presidency of Donald Trump.
The placard held by actor Ian McKellen as he joined the Women’s March in London has been declared the best sign of the day by the internet.
The sign featured a picture of McKellen’s pal Patrick Stewart as ‘Star Trek’s’ Captain Picard facepalming, and pretty much summed up many people’s feelings of frustration and anger towards the Trump presidency.

Stewart will have gone from Shakespeare to sh**.
Patrick Stewart’s illustrious career spans popcorn blockbusters, long-running movie franchises and Shakespeare plays, but his latest role could end up being his most famous, and for all the wrong reasons.
The 76 year old thespian is to provide the voice of the ‘poop’ emoji in the upcoming, as-yet-untitled emoji movie, alongside the likes of Ilana Glazer, TJ Miller, Maya Rudolph and James Corden who had already signed up for roles.
“So excited to announce the distinguished @SirPatStew as Poop in the #EmojiMovie – in theaters August 4th! #SonyAnimationDay,” Sony tweeted on Wednesday (January 18th).

Not even a mutant can be powerful forever. Logan aka Wolverine is dealing with the effects that old age are having on his ability to heal, namely the fact that his skin now scars easily and he's constantly in pain. Professor Charles Xavier is also suffering; Alzheimer's has taken over his mind, destroying his memories. But the pair don't even have the X-Men to take care of them anymore, as a new supervillain by the name of Nathaniel Essex with his Essex Corporation is destroying the world as we know it. Logan and Xavier's only chance of defeating Essex lies with a young girl named Laura Kinney who is an exact genetic clone of Wolverine in female form.

Stewart, who experienced war-time Britain as a child, urged people to vote to remain in the European Union when the referendum takes place on June 23.
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.

Stewart’s new look could easily see him mistaken for Dame Helen Mirren.
Sir Patrick Stewart caused us to do a double take yesterday, when he transformed into a glamorous woman to promote his new US show ‘Blunt Talk’. The 75-year-old actor appeared in full drag at an event in Hollywood on Monday evening (April 18th), causing many fans to liken him to British actress Dame Helen Mirren.
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.

Only Patrick Stewart could pull this headwear off.
He’s captained the Enterprise and founded the X-Men, but the biggest test of Patrick Stewart’s abilities appears to have come when the 74 year old tried to keep a straight face while wearing a particularly festive Christmas hat.
Patrick Stewart is the king of the internet. Fact.
In the just over 30 second clip uploaded to Youtube by the actor’s wife Sunny Ozell, Stewart can be seen wearing an elf style Christmas hat which appears to have a life of its own as it serenades him with the jingle ‘We Are Santa's Elves.’
Everyone's back for one of the year's biggest releases
Possibly the biggest reunion movie of all time, X-men: Days of Future past isn't just a sequel to 2011's X-men: First Class, but also to the original 2000-2003 trilogy.
Back from those first three films are director Bryan Singer, writer Simon Kinberg and cast members Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Famke Janssen, James Marsden, Shawn Ashmore and Daniel Cudmore.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is a serious critical hit.
The early reviews of X-Men: Days of Future Past were potentially damaging. There was talk of the narrative being far too complex for the average movie fan to enjoy and many were suggesting Bryan Singer had bitten off more than he could chew by having the beloved characters from the original X-Men trilogy joining forces with their younger selves.
Starring Sir Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, X-Men: Days of Future Past is certainly a hotbed of serious acting talent, but very often, big names simply aren't enough to carry a poor script. Luckily, for 20th Century Fox, writers John Byrne, Simon Kinberg, Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman haven't written a poor script. They haven't even written an overly complex script.

The stars of 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' arrived for the world premiere held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York. Among them were James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart who play the younger and older versions of Professor X and were interviewed together on the red carpet, and Daniel Cudmore, Shawn Asmore and Evan Jonigkeit who play Colossus, Iceman and Toad respectively.
Patrick Stewart was seen arriving at the world premiere of 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York alongside his wife Sunny Ozell. He plays the much-loved character of Professor X in the movie, whose younger self is portrayed by James McAvoy.
Ahead of its May 22 release, the critics have their say on the latest X-Men adventure
Professor X, Mystique, Magneto, Kitty Pryde and Wolverine are back, but this time the latter is trying to convince X-Men from the past to help stop a war that is going to occur in the future. It’s a complicated plot, by all accounts, but one that Bryan Singer and Matthew Vaughn have portrayed skilfully, with plenty of action in between.
Charles Xavier meets his past self
The critics have kicked off the ever fluctuating aggregate Rotten Tomato score with a very healthy 86%. “Not since 2003's "X2: X-Men United" has this filmmaker tapped so effortlessly into his talent for comicbook gravitas, his ability to mine emotional resonance, pop poetry and (crucially) sly humor…” wrote Variety’s Justin Chang.
Critics haven't enjoyed this kiddies' reboot of the classic 'Wizard of Oz.'
Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return is released today in the USA, giving American families a new look at the classic tale of Dorothy,Toto, Kansas and the magical land of Oz in an exciting new animated take. Glee star Lea Michele takes the lead, voicing the sparkly-shoed heroine whilst Dan Aykroyd plays the Scarecrow, Kelsey Grammer is the Tin Man and Jim Belushi voices the not-so-cowardly lion.
Lea Michele Plays Dorothy In The Poorly-Received 'Legends Of Oz: Dorothy's Return.'
The movie is an adventure aimed at the youngest of cinemagoers but even so, critics have found fault with Legends of Oz at the most basic of levels. Directed by Will Finn ('The Road to El Dorado') and Dan St. Pierre ('Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey') and with Bryan Adams scoring, the film should have had all the makings of greatness but instead falls short with a mediocre plotline and decidedly second-rate animation.
Stewart and Macfarlane aren't your typical pairing
Patrick Stewart is returning to his first regular role on TV since ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ as British newsman Walter Blunt in Starz’ “Blunt Talk”, which will be produced by Family Guy creator, Seth Macfarlane.

The new show, written and produced by the creator of HBO comedy, ‘Bored to Death’, sees Blunt host an interview show, sharing his seldom-requested guidance while dealing with a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives, children and an alcoholic assistant, according to The BBC.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting closer.
Fox has released the X-Men: Days of Future Past behind-the-scenes featurette as it prepares its promotional material ahead of the movie's release on May 23. Mainly featuring Bryan Singer explaining his reasons for getting back into the director's chair for the latest entry in the long-running superhero series, the new clip also features some pretty neat looking footage from the blockbuster.
Ian McKellen in X-Men: Days of Future Past
Singer's first two movies starring Hugh Jackman paved the way for the younger cast (McAvoy, Fassbender, Lawrence etc) to take a hold of the franchise, though the filmmaker is delighted to be forging both teams together for Days of Future Past.
Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart stun in a double bill of 'Waiting for Godot' and 'No Man's Land' on Broadway.
Ian McKellen has suggested that his current Broadway show - a double bill of Samuel Beckett'sWaiting for Godotand Harold Pinter'sNo Man's Landwith Patrick Stewart - could well be his last appearance on the famous stages of New York.

McKellen, 74, said Gotham's famous theatre scene had "some of the brightest in the world, and certainly some of the most enthusiastic" audiences in the world.
Hugh Jackman should hand the Wolverine torch over to someone new
Many actors have roles that define their careers. So far, Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter is still his most recognisable work; Roger Moore will always be known as James Bond and Christopher Reeve just is Superman. Will Hugh Jackman always ben known as Wolverine?
Hugh Jackman's Wolverine in Days of Future Past
He certainly will be if talk of another film turns out to be true. Often maligned, Jackman’s career has been of the illustrious sort. He’s appeared in taut thrillers, elaborate musicals and epic battles. But his seminal career role is that of Wolverine, and subsequent turns in the X-Men movies that included the angry superhero.

Check out the emotional trailer for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' below.
Following a nastily short, nevertheless exciting, six-second teaser trailer released last week, we finally have a longer trailer to whet our comic book appetites. The emotive, epic trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past sets out the story, which sees two generations of X-Men required to stop a war before it begins.
Hugh Jackman's Wolverine faces a difficult task

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' trailer hits the web and features heroes and villains from the past and future as the 'X-Men' return to save the mutant race.
The official trailer for the sequel to the 2011 'X-Men First Class' has been released online.

The sequel trailer already rises important questions that need to be addressed in the upcoming sequel. The 2 minute long clip heavily features the return of 'Professor Charles Xavier' (Patrick Stewart), a character presumed to be dead after being killed by Jean Grey in 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand'. A resurrection perhaps?
Uploaded earlier today, the trailer for the next X Men movie will blow you away
X-Men: Days of Future Past won't be out until May next year, but after you see the first trailer for it you'll wish that you could jump forward and dive right into it now. In it, we get our first real glimpse at our mutant heroes and villains, from past and future, who must bend the space time continuum to make the future a better day for mutants throughout the Marvel Universe.
The past (McAvoy) and present (Stewart) Xaviers meet face to face in the trailer
Based on the much lauded and incredibly popular (if you happen to be into comic books at least) 'Days of Future Past' storyline from the Uncanny X-Men, the move will unite the characters from the first X-Men movies with those from 2011's X-Men: First Class, with the present day X-Men having to go back in time to prevent the ongoing war against mutants, who are being hunted down by the robotic Sentinels. Are you still with us? Good, because it gets even more complicated.
The happy couple are beaming in their Twitter snap

The pair were married by Sir Ian McKellen, who revealed earlier on this year – in an interview with Jonathan Ross - that he would be performing the ceremony. The pair have been close friends for years, and shared the screen when they co-starred in the X-Men films.

Describing his role as Wolverine as "the job that has defined [his]career...every day [he's] grateful," he added "I thank my lucky stars" before he and X-Men director Bryan Singer engaged in a spot of snuggling.
The pizza slice picture that went viral.
Sir Patrick Stewart caused a veritable storm on social media – and traditional media for that matter – when he tweeted a photo of himself enjoying his first ever pizza slice earlier this week. Everyone was astonished. By now, of course, Stewart has cleared up the case, explaining that he had had pizza before and was referring to the “slice” format, rather than the food itself. What is even more puzzling though is all of the attention that this has gotten, ever since the initial explosion. The actor spoke to New York Magazine about the whole incident, explaining that he was more shocked by the reaction, than everyone else was by the news themselves.
“I'm astonished. You know, we thought it was a cute picture,” he explained “I like doing these things that are kind of unexpected, as far as I'm concerned, and things that have a little bit of a surprise element to them. But we never anticipated what has happened. I just did an interview with BBC, the main evening news program. And it's been years since I've talked to them. And it's all, you know, about a pizza slice.”
The picture could be a testament to the power of social media to bring celebrities closer to their fans. It could be that all people have ever wanted, was bread and circuses – in this case, with some added sauce and pepperoni. Or it could just be a cute photo, as the man originally intended it to be. We’d say the lesson is this: follow Patrick Stewart’s Twitter. It’s hilarious.

Sir Patrick Stewart almost asked for a knife and fork to eat his pizza, having never had a 'slice'.
Patrick Stewart reveals that he has in fact tasted pizza before after a misunderstanding on Twitter led people to believe that he'd never had a slice of the Italian junk food.
The 'Star Trek' actor was in fact being quite literal; he had posted 'My first ever pizza 'slice'. Please note: the authentic NY fold' accompanied by a photo and he literally meant that he'd never had a 'slice'. 'It was my first slice, and when it was brought over to me, my first comment was 'There's no knife and fork.' Of course, I was mocked for thinking that I could eat a pizza slice with a knife and fork', he revealed in an interview with New York Magazine after headlines went crazy with wondering how this 72-year-old could possibly have bypassed the delicious food. As much as he was unaware that one traditionally ate the stuff in triangular handheld slices, he did agree that he 'would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar' to never have tried it all.
However, before you start looking at him like he's an alien, he did decide on pizza as a hangover cure, admitting, 'My fiancée and I were a little hung-over yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink - and she was right. It solved the problem.' See! He's just like the rest of us!
The actor has also admitted to never eating 'one thousand' and 'four hundred' year old eggs before
At 72, Sir Patrick Stewart has seen and experienced things that many of us could only dream of. Surprisingly though, there's something that just about everybody has tried before that Sir Patrick is not quite as familiar with; the humble pizza slice. This changed for the veteran actor earlier this week though, when he got his lips around a slice in New York with his fiancé.
A hungover Sir Pat stumbled upon the Italian's most revered inventions after a night drinking in the Big Apple, hoping that a greasy slice of pizza from a nearby take away would chase away his headache. On Wednesday (May 29) the thespian Tweeted a picture of himself take by his fiancé with a pizza slice in hand (with 'authentic NY fold') with the caption 'My first ever pizza "slice".'
Naturally, being the big news story it is, Patrick has been quizzed fairly regularly about the whole life-experience since it happened, most recently when he returned to the U.K. for an appearance on Eddie Mair's Radio 4 show 'PM' on Thursday (May 30). The actor was asked about how it feels to be such a viral sensation thanks to his picture and what the moment was like when he ate the pizza, to which he replied; "I look on this as maybe being the high point of my career, if not my life."
The legendary actor combines dough, tomatoes, cheese and heat for the first time
He’s manned the Starship Enterprise, boldly going where no man had gone before. As Professor Charles Francis Xavier, he promoted the peaceful affirmation of mutant rights, mediated the co-existence of mutants and humans, protected mutants from violent humans and protected society from antagonistic mutants. But Patrick Stewart has never had a pizza.
Patrick Stewart tucked into his first slice of Pizza recently, and tweeted the proof. He probably didn’t imagine it would make the news, but, everyone in the Western world has had a pizza; it’s a massive, great big thing. He confused us by tweeting: "To clarify: 1) I've never had a "slice" 2) I've been a Habs fan all of 4 weeks 3) I'm also a fan of Bloomberg's soda legislation," which suggests he may have had pizza? But the idea of a 72-year-old actor never having had a slice o’ pie is too delicious, so, we’re running with it.

Lord of the Rings star reveals he'll be officiating Patrick Stewart's forthcoming wedding, in America
Sir Ian McKellen is going to be marrying Patrick Stewart! No! Wait! Hold up! Not THAT kind of marrying. Patrick Stewart is going to be getting married – to the singer Sunny Ozell – and Sir Ian McKellen will be officiating the wedding. It’s not the first time that the Lord of the Rings star has overseen a friend’s wedding; he married two men in the UK as well, so he’s well-practised for the Star Trek actor’s nuptials, which are taking place “in the middle of America, somewhere.”
Speaking on the Jonathon Ross show, the presenter asked McKellen “how come you’re legally allowed to do that?” and the reply came, “well, I don’t know.” He went on to explain that the last time he officiated a wedding, for two men having a civil partnership, he was “crying his eyes out.”McKellen then moved on to the all-important sartorial decision of what to wear when officiating a wedding. “Last time I went with a gown, a sort of white gown, that I’d bought in India, it was rather fetching. But you mustn’t upstage the bride.”
McKellen was on the show to promote the new TV sitcom that he’ll be starring in, alongside Derek Jacobi. Entitled 'Vicious,' it follows the story of an ageing gay couple, who have lived very private lives and get through life by being rather vicious to each other. The ITV comedy has already been commissioned for a Christmas special, he revealed during the entertaining interview.
The Station Agent actor Peter Dinklage has joined the cast of the latest X-Men movie Days of Future Past. Director Bryan Singer announced the news on Wednesday (February 13, 2013), tweeting, "Officially like to welcome Peter Dinklage from Game Of Thrones to XMEN Days of Future Past. Very very excited!"
The casting of Dinklage is a strong move from Singer and the team - he won Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes in 2012 for his role as Tyrion Lannister in HBO's Game of Thrones. It's yet to be determined which role he will play in the forthcoming X-Men movie, which is co-written by Matthew Vaughan, the director of the previous movie. The franchise has spawned five movies so far, including the 2009 Wolverine spin-off. A follow-up to that film, The Wolverine, is due out this summer with Hugh Jackman's character travelling to Japan to train with a Samurai warrior.

The New York 'Killing Them Softly' premiere was Hollywood star central with numerous movie stars taking to the red carpet including 'Star Trek' star Patrick Stewart with his partner Sunny Ozell, 'Dexter' star Jennifer Carpenter, Maggie Grace from 'Taken', 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' actress Taraji P. Henson and one of the premiering movie's stars Scoot McNairy.
A specially painted Air New Zealand plane jetted around the world this week, collecting cast and crew to attend the world premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Wednesday. Wellington was renamed "The Middle of Middle-Earth" for the day, and the red carpet event was attended by Cate Blanchett, Martin Freeman, franchise guru Peter Jackson and more than 100,000 fans.
A recent poll put together to celebrate the release of the board game Stratego Sci-Fi has found that the late Christopher Reeves as the Man of Steel is the public's favourite sci-fi star to grace the silver screen.
Reeves battled off tough competition from Star Wars’ Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Yoda (Frank Oz), who placed second and third respectively, and Star Trek's James T Kirk (William Shatner) and Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), who placed seventh and tenth in the countdown.
Perhaps the most unusual choice for the top ten was Will Smith's Agent Jay character from the Men In Black trilogy, who made it all the way to number five in the countdown, whereas one of the more natural choices - David Tennant as Dr Who - was pushed all the was down to number twenty.

The Oscar-nominated actor, director and screenwriter, is best known for his Shakespearean works though most recently played Swedish detective Wallander in the BBC series of the same name.
Sir Kenneth joins the likes of Sir Michael Caine, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ben Kingsley and Sir Laurence Olivier in becoming a thespian knight. Branagh - who recently starred in the Marilyn Monroe movie My Week With Marilyn - told Sky News that he felt "humble, elated and incredibly lucky," to have received the award, adding, "When I was a kid I dreamed of pulling on a shirt for the Northern Ireland football team. I could only imagine how proud you might feel. Today it feels like they just gave me the shirt and my heart's fit to burst." Branagh spent his early years in Northern Ireland though moved to Reading with his family at the age of nine.
In today's ceremony, two British servicemen were awarded the Military Cross for bravery. Corporal Carl Taylor from Birmingham ran 80 feet across open ground under Taliban fire to rescue three young Afghan children. Bombardier Mark Carpenter of the Royal Artillery was also honoured, as were four fire-fighters from Nottinghamshire who received the Queen's Gallantry Medal for acts of bravery.

After a childhood wish brought his teddy bear to life, John (Wahlberg) has become inseparable with his buddy Ted (voiced by Macfarlane). But John's girlfriend Lori (Kunis) is starting to think that a 35-year-old man and his fluffy pal should stop living like stoner-slackers. Worried about the foul-mouthed, womanising Ted's influence, she encourages John to make his own way in life, so they can be a proper couple. But separating Ted and John is more difficult than it looks.

Some gardens just wouldn't be complete without the addition of a garden gnome or two. The gardens on Verona Drive are no exception; the owners of the houses are extremely fond of their little hat wearing friends. What the human residents don't realise is that when all's quiet and there are no humans around, their garden comes to life!

Without too much regret, I can say that X-Men will be palatable to fans and newbies alike. It's not a great film, but it will probably follow the arc of the Superman and Batman movies -- tons of sequels of variable quality until an abrupt and dismal end a decade later.

When brainy, bobble-headed computer-toon hero Jimmy Neutron tells his mom he's contacted alien life forms in "Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius," she's taken aback by his disobedience.
"Jimmy," she scolds, "how many times have I told you not to talk to strangers?"
It's a moment that defines the wit and whimsy of this spirited CGI kiddie creation, which is absolutely popping with personality and prodigious production design.
