Last night on the Late Show with David Letterman, Blunt revealed that she is getting sick of her characters being treated terribly by Streep, especially after the British actress came to the Oscar’s winner’s rescue on-set—while pregnant!—essentially saving Streep’s life. “She owes me big time,” Blunt said.


Blunt told Letterman that she even proposed to Streep that the two reverse power roles for a future collaboration. “I think at some point I should play the Queen of Versailles and she could be my lonely dressmaker,” Blunt said of her peer. After the audience applauded, Blunt continued, “I think it’s a great idea and I mentioned it to her.” Sadly, Streep did not seem as enthused about the power dynamic change-up. “Her response was, ‘Dream on,’” Blunt confided.

COLIN FIRTH KILLS, THRILLS IN 'KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE' TRAILER AND POSTERS

"You like spy movies?" Samuel L. Jackson asks in a new trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service.

"Now days they're all a little serious for my taste," answers Colin Firth.  "Give me a far-fetched theatrical plot any day."

With that, this international trailer announces Kingsman's intentions in no uncertain terms.

Remember Kick-Ass, Matthew Vaughn's smirking, self-consciously outrageous, willfully provocative riff on superhero movie convention?  Well, Kingsman finds the director once again teaming with co-writer Jane Goldman to adapt a comic book by Mark Millar, bringing that same Kick-Ass self-awareness to the spy genre.


Vaughn's love of old Bond was evident in X-Men: First Class, but here, in the film he opted to make instead of X-Men: Days of Future Past, he puts his predilection towards over the top espionage action and genre subversion on blast, trumpeting in particular the impeccably British performance of Colin Firth in his first role as an action hero.

Like Millar's Wanted, The Secret Service follows a nobody from an ordinary life into a heightened world he never knew.  In this case, the nobody is Gary Unwin, a teenage delinquent in London who Firth's Harry Hart takes under his wing, recruiting him for top-secret government service and making him a protege.

British unknown Taron Egerton stars as Unwin, and this international trailer gives the first real sense of how Kingsman follows him from juvenile delinquent to dapper one-man-wrecking-machine.

DID TOM HIDDLESTON GET MARRIED IN SECRET? HE'S WEARING A RING ON THAT FINGER ... — PHOTO

If you thought Benedict Cumberbatch getting engaged broke the Internet, just imagine if Tom Hiddleston secretly got married. That’s what a lot of fans feared this weekend when they spotted a gold band on a certain finger of his. On Sunday, a fan posted a picture with the actor and people immediately pointed out that it looked like Hiddleston was wearing a ring on his left hand.

But you can all breathe a collective sigh of relief because Hiddleston is most likely not married. He’s not even rumored to be dating anyone. (Although, I can’t imagine why, since he’s the world’s best catch.) The real story here, it seems, is that Hiddleston forgot to take his prop ring off at the end of his filming day. He’s currently playing Hank Williams for the movie I Saw the Light and his character has a wife. (Who is played by the very lucky Elizabeth Olsen.)

Colin Firth, Jude Law and Nicole Kidman steam in to film latest blockbuster

THE HERALD

Herald Series:

Didcot may have lost three of its iconic cooling towers but it has kept its appeal for A-List celebrities.

Hollywood stars Jude Law and Nicole Kidman have been spotted filming their latest movie at the town’s heritage railway centre.

Along with Colin Firth and Dominic West, they are shooting new biopic Genius, about the man who published Ernest Hemingway and F Scott Fitzgerald.

Mr Law, who plays American novelist Thomas Clayton Wolfe, and Ms Kidman, who plays his mistress Aline Bernstein, were seen shooting scenes at the railway centre in the rain on Friday afternoon.


A member of staff at the centre said: “Colin Firth, Jude Law and Nicole Kidman were all here to film scenes for Genius but we have been told not to talk about it.

“We think the film will come out some time next year.”

Centre manager Roger Orchard was unavailable for comment.

It is not the first time Jude Law has filmed scenes at the centre.

He and Robert Downey Jnr spent three days there in 2010 to film scenes for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, the sequel to 2009’s box office hit, Sherlock Holmes.

Residents were warned then not to be alarmed by explosions coming from the site as they recreated a munitions factory in the main engine shed.

Sherlock: His Last Vow Emmy Race

Thanks to “Sherlock’s” British broadcaster BBC One, we have our first look at stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in the upcoming special episode, and the dynamic duo are apparently getting in touch with their iconic characters’ literary roots, looking downright Victorian in the new photo.




An earlier tweet — which included a photo of the special’s script — alerted fans that a preview of the one-off was forthcoming, promising a look at the two “as they’ll appear in the special,” which is set to air sometime in 2015. This note has led to a flurry of fan speculation regarding time-travel and/or a game of dress-up.
