If we were James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, we would be very, very worried right now
X-Men Assemble! Oh no wait, we’re getting our superheroes mixed up.
There’s going to be a Doctor Who movie materialising in cinemas soon, most likely with that weird whoooshing sound effect. Now if they want to do this, it turns out they’re going to need an actor to play the Doctor (we were as shocked as you were). So we thought we’d give the film producers a hand, and let you all know our picks for who would make superb Doctors Whos.
Prepare yourself for a relentless onslaught of legendary British voices, classic Aardman stylings, slick 3D and more Christmas spirit than you could shake even a really big candy cane at – it could only be Arthur Christmas. And it’s totally, overwhelmingly charming, just like you knew it would be. What are you doing on a computer? Just go and watch it, Scrooge – and would it kill you to wear a snazzy jumper?
In honour of the news that Jessica Chastain (a dirty American) may be taking the lead role in a biopic of Princess Diana, BFF have compiled a list of the Top 10 iconic British roles which have been snatched away by actors of other nationalities. This is one for all you xenophobes out there.
Paul WS Anderson has committed the greatest act of cultural rape since Stephenie Meyer thought “Whitby and dogs are all very well, but none of it’s really sparkly enough…”. The Three Musketeers is plagiarised from so many disparate sources that I can scarcely keep up with them – unfortunately, however, Alexandre Dumas’ classic romance isn’t among them. This film is unforgivable.
Robert Redford’s latest directorial exploit stars James McAvoy and Robin Wright (quondam Robin Wright Penn) in a sepia-tinted legal drama about the distinctly witch-hunty trials which followed the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. You may need a short nap in the middle, but The Conspirator‘s beetle-browed intensity is more than made up for with a slew of well-judged performances in a supremely atmospheric setting.
