The Interview

The big movie news this week has been Sony's decision to cancel the release of the James Franco/Seth Rogen comedy The Interview due to threats made by a hacking group. The film had already held its Los Angeles premiere, attended by Franco and Rogen, costar Diana Bang and cowriter-director Evan Goldberg, who were photographed on the red carpet. But the New York premiere was cancelled, as was all press and any plans for a theatrical or home video release.

In New York, the stars turned out for the premiere of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Actors on the red carpet included Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek and Crystal the monkey. Then the cast headed to London for a blue-carpet premiere in the UK attended by Stiller, Gervais, Owen Wilson and Rebel Wilson, plus Ben Kingsley and Dan Stevens.

Also in London, there were plenty of photographers out to watch filming on the new James Bond movie Spectre, as Daniel Craig sped down the Thames in a speed boat with costar Rory Kinnear. Meanwhile, Naomie Harris was spotted shooting scenes for the film on the streets of the city, with Craig watching from a window.

The Gunman

The Gunman is an action movie starring Sean Penn as a man whose wife doesn't have a clue that he's actually a hitman. But when he tries to expose his top-secret organisation, they kidnap his wife. It's hardly surprising that the film is directed by Pierre Morel, who also made Taken and From Paris With Love. A new trailer makes the film look whizzy and brutal, with strong support from Javier Bardem, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone and Idris Elba. It opens in February in the UK and March in the US. Watch 'The Gunman' Trailer.

This week also saw the first trailer for Insurgent, the next film in the Divergent series, once again starring Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller and Jai Courtney, plus Naomi Watts and Octavia Spencer. It looks like a big action thriller, as the teens team up to fight the leaders of their dystopian society. It's in cinemas in March. Watch 'The Divergent Series: Insurgent' Trailer.

Far From the Madding Crowd

Also opening in March, Thomas Vinterberg's film adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 1874 classic novel Far From the Madding Crowd released its first trailer this week. The film stars Carey Mulligan as a poor young woman who is the object of affection for three very different men. It looks pretty ravishing. Costars include Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple. Watch 'Far From The Madding Crowd' Teaser Trailer.
