  • Daniel Radcliffe Thinks He Would Have Been a Good Spider-Man

    Daniel Radcliffe revealed in a recent interview with Metro UK that he had interest in playing the title role in Marvel's upcoming franchise reboot, "Spider-Man: Homecoming." 

    He said: ‘I would’ve been a good Spider-Man but the boat has sailed on that and I’m very happy to watch Tom Holland do it. He’s fantastic.

     

    Radcliffe added: ‘I love superhero movies.

    Although Radcliffe might not be playing Spider-Man, he has cosplayed him. In 2014, he snuck around the San Diego Comic-Con in tights. He did mention that he’d be interested in other parts should Marvel or, maybe, DC make them available. He told Metro: “I’m not sure if I’d sign up for something that was another seven or eight films or 10 years, but a shorter franchise, yeah.”

     

    Since the Harry Potter series concluded, which Daniel Radcliffe spent most of his young life working on, he has found a lot of success in smaller, indie movies, be it playing a "farting corpse" in Swiss Army Man, or being a guy with Horns in the movie Horns. He does show up in the occasional big-budget movie these days. Over the summer he had a part in Now You See Me 2 and last year Igor in Victor Frankenstein, which turned out to be something of a bomb, but was at least intended to have mass appeal. Therefore, it's definitely understandable that he wouldn't want to be so closely associated with a particular role after playing Harry Potter for 10 years.

    Maybe that's why he told Digital Spy that he'd love to be in Game of Thrones, only on one specific condition: "If they want to just bring me in and f**king kill me, I would be so happy to do that."

    Radcliffe also told us which Disney character he'd love to play, taken from his favourite Disney movie. No, not Fantasia, or Hercules.

    "I would have a go at either Panic or Pain, the two little demons that run around Hades," he noted. "I don't know what other actor I would pick, but me and another actor can form a little double team and do that."

    Radcliffe was promoting the UK release of his acclaimed new film "Swiss Army Man," in which he plays a magical, talking corpse.

     

     Meanwhile, Holland will next be seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017, following his Spidey debut in this year's Captain America: Civil War. The reboot is directed by Jon Watts (Cop Car) and also stars Donald Glover, Marisa Tomei, Martin Starr, Hannibal Buress, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, and some guy named Robert Downey Jr.

  • Oscar-Winner Jeff Bridges Joins the Cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    The series about spies Kingsman will release a sequel named Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges has signed his name into the contract to join the cast recently.

    Jeff Bridges, who played The Dude in The Big Lebowski and won an Oscar for Crazy Heart, will appear in the film, he announced on Twitter.

     

    "The only golden circle I want vexing me is the one my glass leaves behind on the table," the image in the tweet says.

    Considering Bridges’ on-screen history with alcohol, this is the perfect image to announce his addition to the cast. In addition, this also gives us a hint as to who Bridges might be playing. His character hasn’t been officially named or even described, but we do know that Kingsman: The Golden Circle will see the devastated British spy organization teaming up with their American counterparts known as the Statesman. The American agents just so happen to have their center of operations disguised as a whiskey distillery. If I had to guess, Bridges is more than likely playing the head of the American agents, not unlike Michael Caine in the first movie.

    Bridges is just the latest to join it, the sequel already has the talents of Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, and Channing Tatum; alongside the returning Colin Firth, in the role of a (presumably) resurrected Harry Hart. It is already something special with Elton John making a rare turn as an actor. Mathew Vaughn also returns to direct the film.

    The spy spoof follow-up to 2014's Kingsman: The Secret Service will see Taron Egerton’s Eggsy head state-side with Mark Strong’s Merlin to work for secret US spy society Statesmen. Statesmen HQ is disguised as a whisky distillery and once there, Eggsy and Merlin will be tasked with defeating the villainous Poppy, Moore.

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle is expected to release on 16/06/2017.

Since then, the film becomes more and more fierce than ever.

     

     

     

     

    Especially, with an extremely genuine cinematic language, director Peter Berg leads us to the extreme emotions. The audience will be strongly impressed with the scene where the crewmembers fall down in that terrible fire. But during the darkest hours, courage leads the way for them. And we all are moved when Wahlberg's Mike shouts: "I will see them again, do you understand me?", referring to Felicia, his wife and Sydney, their daughter.

    But can their survival instinct, endurance and the limit of physical and mental suffering help them survive the disaster?

     

     

     

     

     The answer will hit theaters on Sept. 30. The film co-stars John Malkovich, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez and Dylan O'Brien.

  • Colin Firth Will Star in Kursk Submarine Disaster Film

    After Matthias Schoenaerts, Colin Firth is the second name in the cast list of the film based on the worst disaster in the history of the Russian Navy.

    As Variety reports, Firth is in negotiations to star in the picture, but the potential role has not been disclosed. Earlier, they reached an agreement with Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl - 2015).

    As planned, Kursk is directed by Thomas Vinterberg and written by Robart Rodat.

    Vinterberg is a Danish filmmaker, most famous for The Hunt (2012) and Far from the Madding Crowd (2015). Rodat is the screenwriter of the famous war blockbuster Saving Private Ryan (1998).

    Adapted from the novel "A Time to Die" by Robert Moore, Kursk would not only tell the tale of the explosion that caused the Russian submarine to sink in 2000 and the resulting attempt to survive far below the surface, but also the story of the sailors’ families above who battled political impediments to save their loved ones.

     

    Here’s the official synopsis of Moore’s novel, “A Time to Die: The Untold Story of the Kursk Tragedy” (via Amazon):

    “At 11:28 a.m. on Saturday, August 12, 2000, high in the Arctic Circle under the roiling surface of the unforgiving Barents Sea, Captain Gennady Lyachin was taking the Kursk, the pride of Russia’s elite Northern Fleet, through the last steps of firing a practice torpedo, part of an elaborate naval exercise.

    Suddenly, the torpedo exploded in a massive fireball, instantly incinerating all seven men in the submarine’s forward compartment. The horror, however, was just beginning. The full, gripping story of the remarkable drama inside the Kursk and of the desperate rescue efforts has never been told, until now.

    In A Time to Die, a critically acclaimed best-seller in the United Kingdom, international reporter Robert Moore, who covered the Kursk tragedy from Russia as it happened, draws on exclusive access he obtained to top Russian military figures in telling the inside story of the disaster with the factual depth of the best journalism and the compelling moment-by-moment tension of a thriller. He takes us right down inside the Kursk as two massive explosions, the second measuring 3.5 on the Richter scale, rip through compartment after compartment. Bringing the horror of the explosions vividly to life, he details the agonizing drama of the twenty-three men who survived as they fight against time to be rescued.

    In a journalistic coup, Moore obtained secret access to the Kursk’s highly restricted Arctic submarine base, and he makes the desolation of that forbidden world palpable on the page. As word of the tragedy breaks, he portrays the fear and growing rage of the families of the crew as they clamor for news of their loved ones and confront Vladimir Putin, Russia’s newly elected president.

    Moore also vividly re-creates the nail-biting tension of the heroic but deeply flawed Russian rescue efforts as men are sent down again and again, aboard antiquated mini-subs, in perilous attempts to get to the survivors. As Western rescuers are at last called in, Moore richly describes the fascinating world of the offshore divers who drop everything to make one last, desperate attempt to reach the trapped submariners.

    A Time to Die is a riveting, brilliantly researched account of the deadliest submarine disaster in history and its devastating human cost.”

     

    Later this year, the audience will meet Colin Firth again in Bridget Jones’s Baby, the third installment of the series about Bridget Jones. He is currently in the filming of The Golden Circle, the sequel of Kingsman.
