From back alleys to legends – Meet King Arthur

king arthur (1)

The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londonium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind.

This new King Arthur movie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is filmed in director, Guy Richie style, even though original intention was to make a somewhat more classic film. That idea didn’t last long and this latest Richie movie is filled with his usual quote cuts, fast pace and tongue in cheek humour.

Charlie Hunman who plays Arthur told Entertainment Weekly “It was challenging, to begin with because there was an uncertainty about the tone. Guy’s [initial] intention was to make something that was outside of his wheelhouse, and make a more classic, straightforward, and somewhat somber film — which is obviously not what we ended up with.” Read more…

Carrie Fisher

Let’s face it Star Wars wouldn’t be Star Wars without Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.

After months of speculation about Carrie’s future in the sci-fi saga, Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother, has revealed that Disney bosses want to bring Princess Leia back for Episode 9. And he said he and Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd, have granted the studio rights to use recent footage for the finale. It is understood that CGI will not be used to recreate Leia.

“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t,” said Fisher… “She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful,” he said. “I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue. I’m not the only part in that equation, but I think the people deserve to have her. She’s owned by them.”

The question is –can Vin Diesel and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson put aside their differences after their falling out last summer?

A lot’s happened in the past six months so you’d be forgiven for forgetting about the reported feud between Fast & Furious 8 co-stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.

During the high-octane sequel’s production last summer, Johnson lashed out at unnamed male co-stars branding some of them “candy asses,” with TMZ later reporting that franchise stalwart Diesel was the target of Johnson’s words… Read more from this article in the Independent
