Cayenne Pepper Productions released today the first look image of Devika Bhise as Rani Lakshmibai from Swati Bhise’s forthcoming feature Swords and Sceptres, which follows the true story of the historic Queen of Jhansi who fiercely led her army against the British East India Company in the infamous Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.

Revealing one of Rani’s looks, this first image exposes the incredible detail and work which Swati Bhise and her team have put into portraying an authentic version of the historical queen. The intricate costumes with original designs that existed during the period, all custom and individually handmade 14 months in the making, have been created by costume designers Vidhi Singhania, Riyaz Ali Merchant and Swati Bhise with make-up by national award winning make-up supervisor Vikram Gaikwad. The jewellery has been loaned by Gadgil Jewellers known for their heritage jewellery from this period, with uncut diamond jewellery made by Shri Hari of Delhi.

The Best Movie Action Scenes of 2017

Harrison Abbott on the best movie action scenes of 2017…

It’s that time again. That’s right, it’s time for arbitrary lists that subjectively rank the best/worst things of the year! This one is about 2017’s decent catalogue of cinematic action scenes, which means there’s likely a lot of omissions to piss you off.

With that in mind, remember to post your baffling vitriol and inexplicable anger in the comments.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle – Taxi Chase

Irrespective of its less-than-stellar narrative and apparent script problems, this polarising spy flick did at least confirm that Matthew Vaughn is in a league of his own when it comes to spectacle. No matter what material he’s working with, the British director can always be depended upon to pull off a killer set-piece or two. From Stardust’s inspired voodoo sword fight, to Kick-Ass’ unbelievable strobe-light rescue (and of course

Bryan Singer Was Replaced on Bohemian Rhapsody By Director Dexter Fletcher

Following the big fallout between director Bryan Singer and Fox, the studio has officially replaced Singer as the director of Bohemian Rhapsody. Singer was fired from the production earlier this week and now director Dexter Fletcher will finish the film.

Fletcher is an interesting choice. He directed the wonderful film Eddie The Eagle and has also acted in a couple Matthew Vaughn films such as Kick-Ass and Stardust. Fletcher was also one of the original directors in the running to helm the Freddie Mercury biopic before Singer was involved. Maybe they should have gone with him in the first place. Deadline goes on to explain:

The studio began canvassing for replacement directors even before Singer went Awol after Thanksgiving, sources said. Fox denies this, and the studio denies that anyone but Fletcher was offered the job once Singer was sacked. My sources said that the film didn’t appeal to everyone.

'Bohemian Rhapsody' Finds Bryan Singer's Replacement in 'Eddie the Eagle' Director Dexter Fletcher

'Bohemian Rhapsody' Finds Bryan Singer's Replacement in 'Eddie the Eagle' Director Dexter Fletcher
Bohemian Rhapsody has found itself a new director.

Following director Bryan Singer's termination from the hotly anticipated biopic about the iconic rock group Queen, Fox has turned to filmmaker and actor Dexter Fletcher to finish directing the film, Et can confirm.

Production on the project – which stars Rami Malek as legendary rocker Freddie Mercury – is expected to resume next week, in London.

Fletcher -- who is best known for his impressive body of work as a character actor in films like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Kick-Ass, and Stardust – made his directorial debut in 2011 with the British crime drama Wild Bill, which earned him a BAFTA nomination.

Most recently, Fletcher helmed Eddie the Eagle, a biopic about Olympic skier Eddie Edwards starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman.

Fletcher is boarding Bohemian Rhapsody just days after Singer was fired from the production. Fox did not state the reasons for his termination apart from citing his "unexpected

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Finds New Director After Bryan Singer’s Firing

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Finds New Director After Bryan Singer’s Firing
Fox has tapped Dexter Fletcher as the new director of “Bohemian Rhapsody” to replace the fired Bryan Singer.

Production will resume next week in London. Fletcher’s directing credits include “Eddie the Eagle,” which Fox distributed, and “Wild Bill” along with acting credits on “Kick-Ass” and “Stardust.”

The studio made the announcement late Wednesday afternoon, two days after firing Singer under the “pay or play” provision of his contract. Fox did not elaborate on why it had fired Singer, but sources said that it was due to repeated failures to show up on the set.

Filming has been taking place in London with “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek in the lead role as Freddie Mercury, the frontman for Queen. New Regency and Gk Films are the production companies.

Fox has not changed its plan to release “Bohemian Rhapsody” on Dec. 25, 2018. Sources have said that about two weeks of shooting remain.

Paul Kaye interview: Dennis Pennis, Game Of Thrones, Zapped

Louisa Mellor Oct 19, 2017

We chatted to actor Paul Kaye about playing wizards, the musical Matilda, and his move from celebrity satire to serious drama…

Main image credit: Jordan Katz-Kaye

“Bitterness, really” is Paul Kaye’s explanation of what drove his satirical red-carpet interviewer Dennis Pennis in the nineties. “I’d hit thirty, I’d sort of failed as a musician, I’d failed as an artist I felt at the time.” Ambushing Hollywood’s elite in the persona of a brash, punk nuisance wasn’t Kaye’s first choice for stardom, he admits. “It wasn’t how I expected to forge a career. Of all the things I thought I’d end up doing, it wasn’t that.”

Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Review

Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘ is an interesting film. Not only is it Director Matthew Vaughn‘s first sequel to his own work, but it is also perhaps the least Vaughn-esque of his entire filmography, structurally speaking. If you look back on Vaughn’s movies, you’ll notice a structural through line that connects all of Vaughn’s and co-screenwriter/frequent collaborator Jane Goldman‘s scripts. “Stardust“, “Kick-Ass“, “X-Men: First Class“, and “Kingsman: The Secret Service” all share what is essentially a very refined version of The Monomyth, a.k.a. “The Hero’s Journey” told through Vaughn’s dynamic filmmaking style. If you hold films of his like “Kick-Ass” and “The Secret Service” next to each other, you begin to notice that Vaughn has essentially made the same film for the last few years, although each individual entry becomes augmented through the genre in which each story is being told.

Spy caper Kingsman: The Golden Circle still on top as Flatliners flatlines

Horror adaptation It remains second ahead of Goodbye Christopher Robin, while Spice World: The Movie gets a nostalgia UK screening

Declining a relatively slim 32% in its second frame, Kingsman: The Golden Circle added another £4.19m at the weekend in the UK for a 12-day tally of £15.6m. That compares with £8.25m for predecessor Kingsman: The Secret Service after two weekends of play. The original Kingsman film went on to achieve a lifetime total of £16.6m in the UK, so The Golden Circle is only £1m behind it. Director Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass maxed out at £11.8m, Stardust at £15.0m, and X-Men: First Class at £15.1m, so The Golden Circle is a dead cert to become his biggest ever UK hit. (The Golden Circle is also ahead of films that Vaughn produced but didn’t direct such as Snatched and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.)

Exclusive: On the set of Jason Flemyng’s ‘Eat Locals’

As far as vampire films go, audiences of the 21st century have a built-in expectation for the fanged creatures. We’ve now been subjected to Twilight, a multitude of meaningless Underworld sequels, and everything in between. What we didn’t expect when visiting the set of Jason Flemyng’s Eat Locals, was to be sitting in a cold Hertfordshire farm staring at severed body parts in jars.

This strange and unusual experience was a good way to set the tone for the film. Flemyng, full of positivity and enthusiasm, was, of course, making his directorial debut in the film. It was quickly apparent that he was keen to make a good impression for his upcoming horror feature, and he managed it effortlessly. The cockney gentleman’s friendly nature easily overshadowed his frantic and busy schedule that day.

Flemyng is one of the most recognizable faces in the British film industry.

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Just More ‘Kingsman,’ and That’s Not Necessarily a Bad Thing

One of the biggest surprises at the 2015 box office was just how good Kingsman: The Secret Service was. Sure, it was directed by Matthew Vaugh – already lauded as one of this generation’s best action directors – and written by Jane Goldman – who had previous teamed-up with Vaughn to pen the scripts for Kickass, X-Men: First Class and Stardust – but that was all that the movie seemingly had going for it ahead of release. It was released in the cinematic dead zone of February, opposite of Fifty Shades of Grey, which it was clearly counter-programming against. Its
