Entertainment Weekly has published the first offical image from Robert Pattinson's up-coming film Life. Robert plays Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock who, in 1955, took James Dean on a road trip from Los Angeles to New York to Dean’s hometown of Fairmont, Indiana to photograph the young star in environments that shaped his unique character and style. The film will follow that memorable trip.
In addition to Rob, Life also stars Ben Kingsley and Dane DeHaan as James Dean himself. You might recognize DeHaan from his role alongside Daniel Radcliffe in Kill Your Darlings.
The film is directed by Anton Corbijn, who explained why he selected Rob and DeHaan for their roles, saying:
"Rob has an intensity that I think Dennis would have. When I see Rob, I see an inner turmoil that is great for the role. ... And Dane is really interesting. He has a beautiful face, but it’s a hard face to grasp. It’s hard to see how Dane reads sometimes, and the same thing goes for James Dean."
Life is slated to hit theaters in 2015. Are you excited to find out more about Rob's up-coming role? Let us know in the comments!
A brand new trailer has arrived for Emma Watson's up-coming biblical blockbuster Noah. This trailer contains tons of new footage, including new scenes with Emma's character Ila. It also features a special introduction from Emma herself!
Unlike previous trailers, the end of this one features an addendum clarifying the biblical accuracy of the film, stating:
"The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide. The biblical story of Noah can be found in the book of Genesis."
You can check out the previous trailers for Noahhere and here. You can also check out Emma's Hi-res movie poster for the film right here.
Noah also stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, and Anthony Hopkins. The film opens in theaters March 28! Will you see it when it hits theaters? Let us know below!
Emma Watson's newest film, 'Noah', may have a release date, but it has been banned in several Middle Eastern countries. Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates have informed Paramount, the studio behind the film, that they will not allow the film to be shown in their countries. Egypt, Jordan, and Kuwait are expected to follow suit. According to Moviefone, the countries that have banned the film cite Islamic law, which forbids films that portray prophets.
The article also mentioned several protests from religious groups in the U.S. Paramount has responded to these concerns by stressing that 'Noah' is a creative take on the Bible story.
The late Roger Lloyd Pack (Barty Crouch), who sadly passed away this year, will be heard in the upcoming Bloomsbury Group spoof series. The second series of the Radio 4 comedy called Gloomsbury, will air in March.
Roger recorded his parts for the show towards the end of last year, and the first episode of the show is to be dedicated to Roger. They are the last ever parts that he recorded. Roger plays “the amorous gardener Gosling and long-suffering husband Lionel Fox.”
Gloosmbury also stars Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout), who plays Vera Sackcloth-Vest. Miriam said that,
"The first series was met with hysteria and delight from everybody and I'm 100% thrilled to be back playing Vera amongst this extraordinary cast. Vera is great fun to play because she's a fount of sexuality and desire and simply doesn't care how much sex is involved."
It has only just been revealed that Roger was involved with the show, and he said before his death that,
"I've always been interested in the Bloomsbury set and I think it's a rather brilliant idea to make fun of them as they lived in this extraordinary, slightly snobby bubble."

One of our favorite Potter alumni, Mr. Warwick Davis, is currently touring the UK with his brand new venture, the Reduced Height Theatre Co., and its first production, See How They Run!

With Daniel Radcliffe’s return to Broadway drawing closer, Daniel has been talking about resuming his role in The Cripple of Inishmaan. In a new interview, Daniel has spoken about the delight of being able to resume the role and how excited he is to be taking it to Broadway:
“We were fortunate enough that we got a great reaction from London crowds, but I remember at the time really thinking, ‘God, this play, I really think it would go down so well in New York, and I really hope we get the chance to do it there.' [...] And then it just didn’t look like it was going to happen, so when the opportunity came around again earlier this year, I just leapt at it. We had a great time doing it in London, and I’m pretty sure I can speak for everyone involved when I say that.”
The show, which will consist of the same cast as the original London production, will be at Broadway’s Cort Theater. Daniel further spoke about how much he liked performing in front of New York audiences:
“New York audiences are always louder, and I mean that in the best possible way. When somebody says something totally shocking, and you hear that wonderful intake of shocked breath from the audience, I remember thinking how great that reaction would be in the States. And there are a couple of lines particularly that relate to America that I think would get a big response. It’s pretty exciting as an actor to get the audience to a point where they’re laughing, almost in spite of themselves.”
Entertainment Weekly has also posted a video, which shows Daniel in the role of Billy, being teased by Helen and Bartley. Watch it below:
The Cripple of Inishmaan begins previews on April 12, with opening night on April 20. Tickets are available now. Find out more about the play and how to get tickets, and read MuggleNet’s review of the London production here.
