In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Judi Dench described her Cats character as being transgender while on the press tour. Gender-flipping a character is not the definition of being transgender. It never has been and it never will be. It's one thing to cast a transgender person in a role. To describe one's […]
Taylor Swift is gracing cinema screens in two weeks when CATS hits theaters. In a new interview with British Vogue, she reveals that she had a great time being a part of the Tom Hooper adaptation. "I really had an amazing time with 'Cats,'" Swift told British Vogue. "I think I loved the weirdness of it. I […]
Tea with the Dames is one of those films you wish you could have been there during the making of. Or at least >this< reviewer sure does, especially when they get to the champagne part. In fact from the trailer alone, the only thing it appears to be missing to make it perfect is Dame […]
20th Century Fox has released a number of images from the upcoming Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. The Tim Burton film based on the novel by Ransom Riggs tells the tale of young Jake, who follows clues left by his grandmother to a magical place known as Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

While Daniel Craig's opinion of returning to the 007 film series seems to change by the day, the Bond camp is reportedly planning a return appearance for Spectre actor Christoph Waltz should Craig himself decide to return. Spoiler for Spectre follows … According to sources speaking to the Daily Star (via The Mirror), Bond producers […]
While I find this rumour quite amusing, I'm not sure I believe it.
This video tells you absolutely nothing about Philomena, except perhaps that it contains both Judi Dench and the letter M, but any publicity for this quite superb film is alright by me.
Now here's a comedy double act that I wasn't expecting.
Don't expect grimy pulp fiction style detection, this is more the shocking, upsetting true story sort of thing, an indictment of corruption and the unravelling of a tragedy.
In which I'm a total pedant.
Mystery story ripped from the headlines.
This looks like an exceptionally good Bond film.
Skyfall looks better at being a Bond film than I had at all expected. Indeed, this could end up being Sam Mendes' crowning glory. I guess there's something to be said for learning and observing the conventions of a genre. Enjoy the new footage and teasing info in this 'international' trailer. We in the UK […]
I'm fresh out of the IMAX Remix event held to coincide with Comic-Con and there will definitely be more to say about that later. For now, though, let's discuss their big finish: the premiere of an IMAX exclusive trailer for Skyfall, the next James Bond picture. The key point of interest is the introduction of […]
Potential spoiler alert. Sound the potential sirens. It's not the first time I've heard this particular Skyfall rumour, and it slots in nicely with some other info we've got about the film, but it's still far from confirmed. Proceed with some caution, anyway. Right. Still here, cautious readers? According to Best For Film, the Skyfall […]
The Sony Vaio product placement extends to even the on-set pictures, look. Here's Roger Deakins, Sam Mendes and Judi Dench on the set of Skyfall, the new Bond picture. And… there's another guy. The focus puller I assume? This obviously isn't M's real office. I assume this comes when she's in exile…? What is this […]
Just yesterday, I was telling you how secretive the James Bond producers were being about the full nature of Ralph Fiennes' role in Skyfall. Let's modify that, then, and say now that they might be being considerably less secretive when speaking anonymously. Fiennes has said that he's playing "a government agent" in the film, but […]
Let's start with some pictures from the set of Skyfall, the Sam Mendes-directed James Bond film. These reveal one of Bond's cars for the new picture… a Land Rover. That he isn't even driving himself. And he's got a stubbly little beard. Certain purists must be having fits. But, look – the car is loaded […]
According to the inexplicably named Sandwich John Films, Clint Eastwood has cast Judi Dench, and is in the process of casting Charlize Theron, in his J. Edgar Hoover biopic, J. Edgar. Here's what Eastwood spilled on the red carpet of the California Hall of Fame induction way back in mid-December: We think [Charlize Theron] will […]
