19 Images From The UK Premiere Of Amma Asante’s ‘Belle’ – Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sam Reid, Tom Wilkinson…
Last night the BFI Southbank in London hosted the premiere of ‘Belle,’ the sublime movie inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle. ‘Belle’ is directed by BAFTA Award winner Amma Asante, written by Misan Sagay, and stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Miranda Richardson, Penelope Wilton, Matthew Goode, Emily Watson, Sam Reid, Sarah Gadon, Tom Felton and James Norton. Out now in the US, ‘Belle’opens on June 13th in the UK.
‘Belle’ is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.
Channing Tatum Wants To “Change The Superhero Movie” With Gambit: “Gambit Is Not Your Typical Hero. He’s A Thief. He Walks On The Grey”
Long linked to the “Ragin’ Cajun”, it’s still not official that Channing Tatum will be playing Gambit in future X-Men movies. “Creatively, we’re starting to chug forward. Obviously there’s nothing [official],” Tatum told MTV News about where he stands with the fan-favorite comicbook character. “There are only conversations and dreams right now, really… “I’ve been pretty vocal about wanting to be the part of Gambit for a very long time. It’s a weird, pinching-myself moment that we’re even having the conversation.”
Recent rumors and comments from writer-director Bryan Singer and producer Lauren Shuler Donner have suggested that Channing Tatum’s Gambit is part of 2016’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ the follow-up to ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ But that’s not what Tatum has in mind; he looking at a full-on standalone Gambit movie before entering the ensemble ‘X-Men’ fold. “We’ve talked about it being a standalone, first, and actually trying to change the ‘hero, superhero movie.’ Because Gambit is not your typical hero. He’s a thief. He walks on the grey. I’m hoping we can change it a little bit, and then ultimately feather into the other ones.”
‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes': Andy Serkis Says The Film Is “A Peace Movie”, Caesar Inspired By Nelson Mandela As A Leader
With the release of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ fast approaching, 20th Century Fox showed some footage from the film to a number of journalists earlier this week in London, with the film’s star – and motion capture pioneer – Andy Serkis on hand to talk about the film. Asked about his approach to Caesar, Serkis said, “…I always approach Caesar as a human in ape skin. He was bought up by Will and for all intents and purposes, when he was a child, believed he was human until he was a teenager. So there was always this internal conflict, and that doesn’t go away for Caesar. What he does have now, he has a family, he has a teenage child and an infant child as well as the pressures of leadership. Really what Caesar is all about, he is empathy.” He adds, “It was really important to base the character on a leader who is capable of empathy and there aren’t that many out there, however Nelson Mandela came to mind.”
‘Star Wars: Episode VII': Mark Hamill Talks Training, The Demand, Secrecy Surrounding The Film, Spoilers….
During a recent chat, Mark Hamill opened up about reprising his role as Luke Skywalker in the hugely anticipated ‘Star Wars: Episode VII.’ On his place in the “Star Wars” past: “In my mind, there was a beginning, and a middle and an end for me and my association with George’s trilogy. It was firmly in the past. When the prequels came out, I watched from a distance, but I was totally fine.” And then saying yes to ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ he said, “Look, I’m aware that a lot of people don’t care one way or another, but for the UPFs – the ultra passionate fans – they would come after me like the angry townspeople with torches in the old Frankenstein pictures. I would have a lot to answer for if I didn’t at least try to make the effort. It’s not like I had a choice. I feel like I was called up for service by the Selective Service.”
