Anthony Mackie & Paul Bettany own the Captain America: Civil War press conference

cap6

Today I attended the London press conference for Captain America: Civil War featuring such a large panel that they couldn’t use the usual table and microphone set up and have to stagger them over two levels with lounge chairs! We have (deep breath), from left to right, above: Producer Kevin Feige, Elizabeth Olsen, Daniel Bruhl, Sebastian Stan (hidden), Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey, Jr., Anthony Russo, Paul Bettany, Joe Russo and Emily VanCamp.

Captain America: Civil War – Film Review

cap1

I watched Captain America: Civil War a couple of days ago and I have been putting off writing my review because I was so overwhelmed by the amount of characters and stories in one movie, yet the Russo brothers somehow managed to juggle it all perfectly and make an incredible superhero film.

Revenge Series Finale: My thoughts

SPOILERS AHEAD

So Revenge ended for good last night (sob!) I know, I know, I have written about how I wanted it cancelled and now it’s over, I feel incredibly sad. Beyond that though, I’m seriously thankful the creators didn’t drag it out and managed to round up all the stories in the finale despite not knowing it would be cancelled.

Please TV network – cancel Revenge!

Do not get me wrong, I used to love Revenge. I have stuck with from its very beginning and I will watch it right up until it ends – but I think that should be in four episodes time when season four comes to an end on May 10th.

There would have to be a SERIOUS game changer for me to change my mind and that game changer would have be substantial enough to sustain another 22-24 episodes. I don’t think there enough left in this Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke (played by Emily VanCamp) story and this season is already losing energy and direction.

Big Pics: Kate Winslet, Michelle Williams & Chloe Moretz

Kate Winslet

Kate looks STUNNING in this shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. In the interview, she said: “I’ve really learnt a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular. I think I can see more clearly now – about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played – and I’m grateful for that.” Kate got married for the third time last December.

Chloe Moretz & Dionne Bromfield

Who knew that these guys were friends?! How do they even know each other?! What a cool pairing though.

Emily VanCamp

Emily looks badass in this shoot! She is definitely channeling her Revenge character Emily/Amanda. She called the final scene in the most recent episode her worst ever. She said: “‘(The scene) was the worst day of work in my life – it felt like torture. They had me in a tank of 6°C water for seven hours and I probably should have said, “I can’t do this anymore.” By three in the morning, my body was in shock.” Poor girl!

Liberace

Here is the first promotional look at Michael Douglas as Liberace! Matt Damon plays his lover Scott Thorson. The director, Steven Soderbergh, said that it was tough to get the film made as most studios thought it was “too gay” or “too explicit”. There are a number of sex scenes in the movie, which got a bit awkward.

Damon recalled: “‘The scene where I’m behind him and going at him, we did that in one take. We do it. Cut. There’s a long pause. And then you just hear Steven [director] go, “Well… I have no notes.”’ It must have been a tough shoot. I reckon it is going to be equally uncomfortable to watch!

Michelle Williams

Michelle dons various guises for this shoot for AnOther magazine. In the interview, she said: “I guess realising that there is no such thing as a perfect balance, it’s not like riding a bicycle, you don’t want to just figure it out and stay on track. I find that when I’m working, there are only two things: there’s my work and the kid, everything else has to fall away.” People have read this as an explanation for her split with Jason Segel, but who knows.

She also explained the way she chooses her roles: “What I’ve learned is that I don’t really know why I wanna play a role. All that I know is that the first time a read a script is the most important time that I read a script and there’s either an instantaneous connection in that moment, or there isn’t.”
