The Oscar race is beginning to take shape, as more and more awards hopefuls make the rounds at film festivals. With press already shouting Eddie Redmayne's praises for his performance as Stephen Hawking in 'The Theory of Everything,' and the film's latest trailer debut, it looks like we have a frontrunner for Best Actor.
This is why awards season is stupid. (Full disclosure: I kind of like awards season sometimes, but it is stupid.) We can’t live in a world in which the media can see ‘The Theory of Everything’ or ‘The Imitation Game’ and just say, “That was a good movie,” then move on with our lives. No, it will be the battle for Best Actor between Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.
From the moment Felicity Jones was cast in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' fans have been wondering who she could possibly be playing and everyone came to the same conclusion: she's playing the Spidey antihero and on-and-off-again love interest known as the Black Cat. But now Jones has dropped a few more hints about her mystery role and it sounds like we were all very, very wrong.
It's a tough role, but someone's got to take it. The still-untitled Jack Ryan reboot has its star (Chris Pine) and director/villain (Kenneth Branagh) in place, but it's missing the necessary love-interest character. Now we're hearing that it's between Keira Knightley, Felicity Jones and Evangeline Lilly.
