We got our first real taste of Benedict Cumberbatch voicing the dragon Smaug in 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' trailers, but the star also used motion-capture technology to help bring the creature to life, which yielded some intense facial acting. 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' Extended Edition, to be released on Blu-ray and UltraViolet this November 5, includes footage of Cumberbatch in action, and we've got a preview for you.
'Sherlock' fans continue to salivate in anticipation over the forthcoming third season, which has yet to set an actual premiere date, though most sensible admirers of the modern update on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous character would be given to understand series stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's increasing demand. A fourth season of the popular series has continually provided a source of question, but have Cumberbatch and Martin officially signed on for 'Sherlock' season 4?
Though spoilers on 'Sherlock' season 3 remain under lock and key just about as tightly as news of Benedict Cumberbatch and 'Star Wars,' the BBC offered up a new treat for the third season. Four new photos from production see series stars Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman back in action as Sherlock and Watson (sans mustache), so take a look at the hotly anticipated new season right here!
Though we're still months away from production, rumors about who's in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' are likely to persist until the movie screens for audiences. The latest round of rumoring is that Saoirse Ronan is up for a role, and that -- contrary to the denials -- Benedict Cumberbatch is very much in the new trilogy.
It would be a lot easier if you could say, "it's just a movie." The sickening thing, the thing that may make it difficult to convince you to buy a ticket, is the opening card that reads, "based on a true story." But facing the cruelty of America's original sin is what '12 Years a Slave' is all about. That's what Solomon Northup did.
It's tricky business selling audiences movies "ripped from the headlines," but after last year's 'Zero Dark Thirty' it's obvious there's an audience for a good procedural. With 'The Fifth Estate,' Bill Condon brings to the big screen the story of Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) as a techno-thriller, and as this featurette points out, it's a complicated story.
Looks like that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' rumor was false after all. Following a statement from Benedict Cumberbatch's rep claiming, despite a report, that the actor would not be starring in J.J. Abrams' upcoming trilogy, the 'Sherlock' star has entered talks to replace Brad Pitt in 'Lost City of Z.'
This past weekend, an unsubstantiated rumor arose from the internet that indicated Benedict Cumberbatch would be seen donning a cape of some kind in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' While we wait on official confirmation, we can still play along: do you think the 'Sherlock' and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star is a good fit for the 'Star Wars' universe?
