Gary Oldman attends the 76th Venice Film Festival to promote his movie “The Laundromat”.


Today, September 01, Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) arrived at the 76th Venice Film Festival in Italy to promote his latest movie project The Laundromat.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the Netflix movie takes a blackly comic look at the investigation into the Panama Papers, a trove of documents that were leaked to journalists in 2016 and that revealed global schemes set up by a Panamanian law firm to help companies and rich clients around the world avoid billions of dollars in taxes. Meryl Streep plays a middle-class woman who is cheated of money she’s owed and starts asking uncomfortable questions. Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas portrayas founders of the law firm at the center of the story.

Gary said that “The Laundromat” was well-served by being a Netflix title, because the streaming giant’s global footprint would help the film and its underlying message reach a worldwide audience. “If you’ve got something this serious, you want to get that out to as many people” as possible, he said.

Happy birthday, Rupert Grint!

We wish you a very happy 31st birthday, Rupert Grint! Probably better known as Ron Weasley to us Potter fans, Rupert has been part of our lives since 2001.

From 2001 to 2011, he starred in all eight Harry Potter films and we would like to thank him for that.

You can also see Rupert in the upcoming TV show Servant, alongside Lauren Ambrose and Nell Tiger Free soon.

Today, Daniel Radcliffe’s interview was released at Breakfast with Bush & Richie on Absolute Radio.

Today, Andy Bush and Richie Firth started their Breakfast with Bush & Richie show on Absolute Radio.

“Waiting for the Barbarians”, starring Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald) and Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) to premiere at Venice Film Festival.

This year’s Venice Film Festival features Waiting for the Barbarians among the list of newly presented movies. A film adaptation of JM Coetzee’s novel, dealing with a complex tale of immigration and integration. The film starrs Mark Rylance and two of our Harry Potter cast members: Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald) and Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory).

All the actors were motivated by a desire to convey the “message” of the film, as well as explore its “artistic component,” said Andrea Iervolino, one of the producers.

“Another production company was trying to do this movie for 20 years. Then they proposed the idea … to me and Monika Bacardi, my business partner. We loved [it] right away because this movie, like the book, speaks about integration and immigration in a world of division,” Iervolino told the Observer.

“Now all governments try to push away immigration, so immigrants are not really welcome. But this movie will show how important and beautiful integration and immigration can be … We believe that the message which this movie gives is very important, more important than 10 or 20 years ago.”

Johnny portrays Colonel Joll, a heartless bureaucrat despatched by the Empire’s secret service amid claims that the barbarians are preparing to mutiny.

On Good Morning Britain, X-Factor winner James Arthur has revealed that Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) is starring in his new music video. The latest song is called Empty Space and we were provided with a short glimpse of Tom in it.

On Tom Felton’s role, he said: “Tom’s one of my favourite actors. Obviously everyone is a Harry Potter fan. We were lucky enough to land him. He illustrates the song perfectly.

“It deals with loss, trying to fill that void, someone you’ve loved you’ve lost in that capacity. Something I’ve dealt with a lot in my life. I wanted to tell a story, being in denial when you’ve lost something and trying to fill that space.”
