Tom Hardy And Emily Browning On Set For 'Legend' [Pictures]


Tom Hardy Emily Browning

Tom Hardy and Emily Browning were hard at work in the torrential London Rain this week filming “Legend”  - the story of the identical Kray Twins, two gangsters who terrorized London in the 1950s and 1960s, with Hardy playing both Reginald and Ronald.

The pair, complete with vintage garb, traversed the East London street while filming the ambitious crime drama. Some scenes involved a vintage black Ford, which Tom can be seen driving while onlookers peer beyond orange barriers. 

This is just one of an array of exciting projects for Hardy, who, having already stunned the critics with a flawless display in ‘Locke’, has a role as Elton John lined up in an upcoming biopic.

Out This Weekend: 'Pompeii' Divides The Critics


Kit Harington Emily Browning Kiefer Sutherland

As you can probably tell by the title, Pompeii is set in the Roman city of Pompeii in the year AD 79. It tells the story of Milo, played by Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame. Milo is slave turned invincible gladiator who is forced into action to save the one he loves while the ancient city burns around him.

Pompeii Kit Harington at Milo in Pompeii

The fact that he’s invincible already raises question marks surrounding the plot’s plausibility. Of course, a film set in Pompeii will always have a certain amount of creative licence, but the audience still need to be able to put things together… The critics were equally unsure of Pompeii’s appeal, culminating in a measly 40% on Rotten Tomatoes. There are more reviews to come, but one gets the impression that score won’t be beaten.

As the Toronto Film Festival wrapped up earlier this week, 12 Years a Slave, the new film from Steve McQueen (Shame), took home the top prize, which makes it the frontrunner for Oscar nominations. It stars Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch. Read more about the win here.

One of the festival's most talked-about films was Don Jon, the writing-directing debut of actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays a womanising gym-obsessive who meets his match in the feisty Scarlett Johansson. Both actors were on hand for the film's gala New York premiere this week. Here's a video of Scarlett Johansson at the event and in this video you can see director/actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt at the event.

Hayley is a rockstar who's life might look perfect with her multitude of fans, constant jetting around the globe and a family who adore her back home, but things take an unpleasant turn in her life when her brother and bandmate dies after an overdose, her second album fails to wow critics and her guitarist Enzo starts to get uncomfortably close. She does her first to withdraw from Enzo's charm but more than once fails to remain faithful to her patient husband. But as she begins receiving an array of creepy messages and gifts from an anonymous fan, her relationship with Enzo becomes stronger and it becomes clear that he will do whatever it takes to win her heart; but as his charming smokescreen clears, she begins to wonder how safe she really is in his hands.

Downton Abbey Star Dan Stevens' Film Summer In February 'Dull'


Dan Stevens Dominic Cooper Emily Browning

Summer in February, the romantic drama starring Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens, Mamma Mia's Dominic Cooper and Sucker Punch's Emily Browning has received less than favourable reviews from critics following its release yesterday. 

The film is based on a novel by Jonathon Smith (who also wrote the script). His story is inspired by real people and events. Florence Carter-Wood (Browning), AJ Munnings (Cooper) and Gilbert Evans (Stevens) were bohemian artists who lived and painted in Cornwall at the turn of the 20th Century. The film follows the stories of this 'Lamora' art group and the love triangle between Stevens, Browning and Cooper. 

Stevens' involvement is a result of his friendship with Smith. He attended Tonbridge School, Kent where Smith teaches. Stevens left Downton Abbey last season to focus on his film career. Critics have complained not about the quality of Steven's acting but that the star hasn't stretch his talents in choosing a role entirely different from Matthew in Downton Abbey. He remains, according to Michael Hann of the Guardian, 'likeable' but continues to do 'his jolly-decent-Cousin-Matthew thing'.

Summer In February Review


Weak

A simplistic approach undermines this intriguing true story about a romantic triangle among artists in pre-WWI England. The actors do what they can to liven things up, but the writing and direction let it down, never injecting the spark of artistic invention that the project so badly needs. So while there's a certain amount of drama in what happens, the flatly cliched way it's assembled leaves us cold.

The story takes place in 1913 Cornwall, where a group of free-thinking artists live and work on the dramatic coastline. Away from the city, they also get up to all sorts of mischief, usually led by the roguish painter AJ Munnings (Cooper), who seems to be on a mission to seduce every woman in sight. His best pal is the dashing army officer Gilbert (Stevens), who is much more reticent about women. Then aspiring painter Florence (Browning) arrives, and both men are captivated by her. She's the sister of AJ's artist friend Joey (Deacon), and is flattered by the attention. But when she makes a pivotal decision she changes all of their lives.

Director Menaul and writer Smith continually smooth the edges of this story. Sure, there are plenty of naked antics, including a woman (Austen) who's happy to drop her clothing for any painter she sees, but it's shot and edited with the same coyness as a leery Carry On movie. We never get a proper sense of the anarchic nature of this community: they're all mopey stereotypes stuck in the one or two personality traits the filmmakers give them. Gilbert and Florence are particularly dull, giving Stevens and Browning little to do to catch our sympathy. By contrast, Cooper makes AJ both charismatic and cocky, and we like him even though it's clear from the script that we shouldn't.

Emily Browning To Star In 'Alice In Wonderland With Guns'


Emily Browning Amanda Seyfried Dreamworks Kiefer Sutherland

Australian actress Emily Browning is set to take the lead role in SUCKER PUNCH, it has been revealed.

The part was set to be filled by MAMMA MIA! star Amanda Seyfried, but it seems she has now dropped out of the role.

Sucker Punch, which is helmed by WATCHMEN director Zack Synder, is described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns".

Zack also co-wrote the script with Steve Shibuya and work on the production is set to start in September of this year.

Emily, who was last seen in horror film The Uninvited, first hit the big screen with a leading part in LEMONY SNICKET'S A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS.

Meanwhile, Watchmen has been replaced by the new Dreamworks animation MONSTERS VS ALIENS as the film with the highest grossing weekend in the US this year.

The superhero flick clocked up $55.2 million (£39 million), compared to the $58.2 million made by the Kiefer Sutherland voiced hit.

Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events Review


Good
This film lives up entirely to its title. The events are as follows: Death of parents by fire, three siblings turned into victims of their closest relative, deception, escapes, disguises, greed, murder attempted and accomplished, evil genius, egomania, abduction, forced marriage, and more wickedness than we might want to witness.

It also has the genius of a multi-disguised Jim Carrey, the narrative voice (and silhouetted presence) of a finely articulated Jude Law, and a basis in a best-selling series of books, 18 million copies of which have been sold since 1999. The movie has seamless effects, inspired inventiveness, and a serious dramatic "problem." More on that below.

Ned Kelly Review


Weak

Plied with fiction and short on depth, the new biopic of legendary Australian outlaw Ned Kelly plays like "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" without the excitement, charm and humor.

Bearded and brooding but otherwise uncharismatic, Heath Ledger stars as the folk-hero bushranger (Aussie for "cowboy"), who according to this film was an upstanding citizen of the Outback frontier until contemptible, crooked, downright sinister lawmen drove him to a life of crime by picking on his family.

They jailed his ma, molested his teenage sister, and falsely accused him and his brothers of horse rustling. They "started a war" against us, Kelly says in voice-over. "So I killed their coppers. I robbed their banks."
