gambit-alan-rickman-the-con-is-on

If you are a true fan of Alan Rickman, and let’s face, we ALL are, then this next film to be released will be one that you do not want to miss! Gambit stars the brilliance of Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, and Cameron Diaz and opens in the UK on November 21. Directed by Michael Hoffman, Gambit is about private art curator Harry Deane (Firth) who devises a scheme with the help of Texas rodeo queen (Diaz) to con England’s richest man into purchasing a fake Monet painting. This film is filled with comedic elements without being described as a comedy. There is a modest amount of nudity in the film including a completely nude Alan Rickman – who portrayed Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films. He is completely unabashed by nudity saying, “You just have to get on with it, there’s no choice, OK, right, here we go!” How many of you just read that with Snape’s voice in your head? We will have a full report from the Apple Store coming soon. Is this a film that you will be watching? Let us know in the comments below. Read More »

Okay, so let’s face it, you probably aren’t interested in meeting Alan Rickman for a chance to talk with him about his new role in Gambit, a revenge movie revolving around con artists, but in fact to speak with him about his iconic role as the professor we all loved to hate (or, hated to love) Severus Snape. Regardless of your reasons, the exciting part is that you have a chance to meet him – if you live in or near London. According to 3GuysOnALondonTourBus, the stars of the film (which also includes Colin Firth, Stanley Tucci, & Cameron Diaz) are going to make an appearance at the Apple Store on Regent Street in London, this coming Wednesday November 7 from 8-9 p.m. The hour long discussion will be regarding the film and will include not only Alan, but Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Tom Courtenay, and director Michael Hoffman. Tickets cannot be reserved for the event, so if you plan to attend, the website suggests arriving early. Will you try and meet Alan Rickman next week? If so, for what reason? What would you ask him if get the chance? Read More »

rickman-reagan

Are there any Alan Rickman fans out there? Yeah, I am sure there are still a few! We now have the first sighting of legendary actor Alan Rickman – who famously portrayed Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films – as former United States President Ronald Reagan for his upcoming film The Butler. The Butler will tell the true story of Eugen Allen, a butler at the White House from 1952 to 1986. Allen will be played by Forest Whitaker, while his on-screen wife is being portrayed by Oprah Winfrey, who posted the picture of Rickman on her Twitter page. Rickman appears in the picture alongside Jane Fonda, who will play Ronald Reagan’s wife Nancy. John Cusack and Robin Williams also star, Cusack playing President Richard Nixon and Williams playing President Dwight Eisenhower, while James Marsden takes on President John F. Kennedy and Liev Schreiber plays President Lyndon Johnson. Allen, who died in 2010 at age 90, served as a butler to eight American presidents in all and retired in 1986, having not missed a single day’s work.
