Tom Hardy movies: 10 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Revenant, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ ‘Dunkirk’
On September 15, 2019, actor Tom Hardy will celebrate his 42nd birthday. The actor has no-so-quietly been building an impressive film career culminating with his recent Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actor in “The Revenant.”

Hardy’s career began surprisingly on a British reality television show that was conducting a “Make Me a Supermodel” search. Hardy won the contest and briefly signed with a modeling agency and began work in that field. He then attended drama school but dropped out before completion in order to accept a role in the HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers.” Shortly after that he would make his film debut in a small role in Ridley Scott‘s drama “Black Hawk Down.”

WB Wants A Person Of Color To Play Catwoman In The Batman

With Robert Pattinson now locked in for the title role, Warner Bros. is currently on the hunt for some talent to face off against him in The Batman. Without a doubt, the character that’s getting the most interest online at the moment is Catwoman, who’s said to be one of the six or possibly even seven villains that’ll be causing trouble for Bruce in Matt Reeves’ upcoming pic.

Already, a number of high profile actresses have been linked to the role of Selina Kyle, with names such as Kristen Stewart, Vanessa Hudgens and Aubrey Plaza all popping up over the past few months, but so far, at least, WB has yet to announce anything. And while it’s unclear who exactly’s on their radar, Heroic Hollywood brings news today that they’ve switched directions.

While originally they wanted a white actress for the part, as evident by the names mentioned above,

Joker Is Already Beginning To Stir Up Controversy Due To Its Violence

Joker has been met with nearly universal acclaim thus far, but not everyone is happy about the release of the upcoming movie. Some feel that the film’s message is extremely inappropriate given the current climate in America, as the flick’s central message appears to be the glorification of a sad, angry loner committing acts of extreme violence, which coincides with a time period where mass shootings seem to occur almost daily. A few critics even feel that the movie might inspire those in a delicate mental state to emulate Joker’s descent into madness.

It wouldn’t be the first time someone drew inspiration from the character in order to carry out an act of domestic terrorism, either. During a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises back in 2012, James Eagan Holmes entered a theater in Aurora, Colorado and began shooting at audience members, ultimately killing 12 and injuring 70 more.

Katy Perry's Epic Prank on Orlando Bloom Is Today's Must-See Moment
This is the one that got away from Orlando Bloom. Or rather, the one that went over his head. During an interview on BBC's Radio 1, the Carnival Row actor was asked to judge some listeners' celebrity impersonations. There was Scott who thinks he can perfectly mimic Tom Hardy's Bane from The Dark Knight Rises and James who has mastered David Attenborough. Then, there was Gemma who, according to the show's host, "can do a mean Katy Perry impression." "Oh, well, I'll be the judge of that," Orlando quipped, of course believing he knows his superstar fiancée best. So, Gemma began belting out Katy's 2008 breakout hit, "I Kissed a...

Rich Phippen sits down with actor David Gyasi (Agreus Astrayon) to talk about Amazon’s Carnival Row, the Victorian Noir fairy tale detective series starring Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Tamzin Merchant, Andrew Gower, Indira Varma, Jared Harris and Alice Krige. The many secrets and theories surrounding the series have made a big impression on audiences waiting for the next big TV fantasy series following the end of Game of Thrones, and this may well be it.

Gyasi talks about showrunner Travis Beacham’s huge world and how it was written ten years ago, and yet how it still feels relevant to today’s world. There is discussion on the real world parallels to today’s society with immigration, social hatred and so on, as well as the incredible scale of the world and how it was put together so viscerally on screen.

New Joker Trailer Teases A Dark Descent Into Madness

Why so serious? Put on a happy face, for the new Joker trailer has finally been released online.

Todd Phillips’ origins movie/alternate take on the Clown Prince of Crime arrives in a couple of months’ time, marking DC’s first film to fall outside of the Dceu since 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises. As we saw from the initial preview, Joker will explore how Joaquin Phoenix’s damaged loner Arthur Fleck loses his mind and is driven to terrorizing Gotham dressed in clown make-up.

This second trailer, meanwhile, gives us a better look at Arthur in Joker mode, and Phoenix appears to be offering up an astonishing performance. It’s not easy to find a new way to portray a character as oft-seen as the Joker, but it seems he’s managed it. Warner Bros. is said to be hoping for some Oscar buzz around the movie, after all,

The Dark Knight: 10 Hidden Details Everyone Missed In Nolan’s Batman Trilogy

After showing his directorial talents with Memento, Warner Bros studios took a big gamble giving the reigns of Batman over to Christopher Nolan - it was only his third studio picture, fourth overall. He was still a relative unknown at this point. But his approach, bringing Batman to the real world and giving realistic explanations for all of his wonderful toys kept Batman Begins a relatively grounded adventure. After the very frowned upon Batman And Robin, there was some trepidation. Trepidation that was quickly alleviated after witnessing the film. Batman Begins didn’t just redefine the superhero film, it redefined how even non-fans would look at the superhero film.

But once that Joker card was turned over at the end, every fan knew it was on. There isn’t much that hasn’t been said about the cinematic marvel known as The Dark Knight. It wasn’t just everything you’d want in Batman movie,

Review: The Boys (2019) – Season 1 (Spoiler-free)

Superhero stories are by now, extremely well-worn territory where meaningful innovations that bring something new and unexpected are few and far between. The Boys, however, is a series that not only turns the superhero genre on its head, but proceeds to beat it mercilessly before releasing it back into the world a violent, callous entity.

Amazon Prime Video‘s much touted latest original series takes a Justice League-esque band of super-powered heroes known as The Seven and makes them the villains of the story, not by having them take part in a grand plot for world domination, but by exploring the humanity beneath the capes.

Despite being treated as celebrities and role models, The Seven are still subject to the ugliest parts of human nature – greed, jealousy, addiction, arrogance, ruthless self-preservation – all of which inspire destructive and selfish actions designed to preserve The Seven’s status and marketability.
