Plucked from obscurity to star in the biggest franchise of all time, these young actors were barely tweenagers when they first appeared on-screen. See how they’ve changed…
While both ‘Imperium’ and ‘Swiss Army Man’ have much artistic merit, both Daniel Radcliffe’s latest movies have tanked at the box office. Over here, it made just £80,403 from 59 screens across the UK, despite the intrigue of its premise and huge amounts of press surrounding his much-publicised role as a ‘flatulent corpse’. Internationally, it’s made just $658,200 (£532,000), with the Russian market streaking ahead of the UK, spending around $355,000 (£288,000) on it at the box office.
A number of people have been quick to point out the similarities between the Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump and a number of movie villains.
Daniel Radcliffe’s new movie ‘Swiss Army Man’ (in UK cinemas on 30 September) caused quite a stir when it debuted at Sundance earlier this year, but not for the reasons they were hoping for. Reports from the indie film festival suggested that dozens of people had walked out of the film’s premiere, with Variety saying that “a continuous stream of audience members” headed for the door before it had even finished, and thus the the film’s reputation as “that farting corpse” movie was cemented for eternity. “It’s really boring what actually happened at Sundance,” Radcliffe explained to Yahoo Movies, “The film went up half an hour late.
Daniel Radcliffe has said that the existence of racism within the Hollywood system is ‘pretty undeniable’. The Harry Potter star was appearing on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, speaking about his new movie ‘Imperium’, in which he plays an FBI agent undercover in a white supremacist group. Radcliffe was invited to the become a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last year.
Daniel Radcliffe has gotten some fans over excited after he revealed he could return as the iconic Harry Potter one day, but is still happy to pass to the baton. While attending the Deauville Film Festival, Radcliffe, now 27, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and shared his thoughts on a question he’s likely been asked a thousand times: would he return to the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise.
In every role post-Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe has distanced himself from his breakthrough as the literary boy wizard. Now sources have told the New York Daily News that not only is the studio plotting a movie, but have their sights set on Radcliffe for the lead. “Warners is secretly working on getting the movie rights and a screenplay settled, and of course in their minds only one man should be Harry,” a ‘well-placed Hollywood source’ told the newspaper.
Whatever you thought of Darius Campbell’s baffling rendition of Britney Spears’ ‘…Baby One More Time’ when he was a contestant on ITV talent show ‘Popstars’ back in 2001, you have to admire his ambition. It’s emerged that Campbell has now moved into the movie business. 36-year-old Campbell, who previously went by Darius Danesh but later took his mother’s maiden name, is credited as co-executive producer on the film, and plans to forge ahead in movie producing as a career.
It seems Daniel Radcliffe didn’t have to surround himself with white supremacists for his latest role because, according to the man himself, he already knows plenty of racists. Radcliffe looks set to finally shed his squeaky clean Harry Potter image in ‘Imperium’, where he plays an undercover FBI agent who goes undercover within a Nazi terrorist organisation. When asked if he had to meet any supremacists to prepare for the role, Radcliffe revealed it wasn’t entirely necessary.
Daniel Radcliffe stopped by "The Daily Show" to promote his new film, "Imperium," which is based on the real-life experiences of an FBI agent who went undercover with white supremacists. The "Harry Potter" star told Trevor Noah that after shooting scenes in which he used racial slurs, he went up to his co-stars and apologized.
Crazes come and go as quickly as the British sunshine, but for a growing group of holidaymakers, the craze that’s sweeping across popular destinations like Magaluf and Aiya Napa.
Swiss Army Man — or the “farting corpse movie,” as it has been routinely referred to since premiering at Sundance — has been one of the most talked-about movies of the year. It’s a proudly bizarro fart-fueled fantasy about a suicidal young man (Paul Dano) stranded on an island whose discovery of a dead body (Daniel Radcliffe) gives his life new purpose. Dano, 32, fresh from South Korea where he recently wrapped Okja, the latest feature from Joon Ho Bong (Snowpiercer), sat down with Yahoo Movies on a Hollywood roof deck to talk about the adventure of making — and screening — Swiss Army Man, which marks the feature debut of the celebrated music video and short film directors known as The Daniels, Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.
Head shaven, a collection of race hate tatts, a white power slogan-tee… you’ve never seen this version of Daniel Radcliffe before. The first trailer for race-thriller ‘Imperium’ has arrived online, and it’s a substantial departure for the 'Harry Potter’ star. In a movie based on true events, he plays Nate Foster, an FBI agent who goes undercover in a neo-nazi terror group to try and bring them down.
You can take a look at an intense Radcliffe in the poster below. In ‘Imperium’ Radcliffe star as Nate Foster, who at the same time as infiltrating the group relays his information back to Toni Collette’s Angela Zamparo, his case agent and supervisor. ‘Imperium’ is directed and co-written by Daniel Ragussis.
If anything has become clear in the five years since Daniel Radcliffe hung up the Hogwarts robe, it’s that the 26-year-old British actor loves mixing it up (also rapping, but more on that later). For his latest act, Radcliffe plays his first traditional movie villain, an honor he jokingly calls a “rite of passage” for any British performer. In Now You See Me 2, the razzle-dazzle sequel to the 2013 sleeper hit, Radcliffe plays Walter Mabry, a sketchy tech genius who lures The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzie Caplan, stepping in for Isla Fisher) to Asia and forces them to work their magic in another high-stakes heist.
Daniel Radcliffe will likely not be going to see the new Potter stage play, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’. “I could be completely wrong in this, but I feel like if I went to see it that night, there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter fans there in the audience obviously and would that then become a thing?
You might not think of the North Wales’ valleys as a horror hotspot, but as you’ll see in Neil Marshall’s (’Game of Thrones’) chiller ‘Dark Signal’, there’s plenty there to be terrified of.
Daniel Radcliffe’s age had barely hit double-digits when he won his life-changing role in the big-screen adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s massively popular Harry Potter book series. “He was very intimidating at first, when you first met him on set,” Radcliffe told Yahoo Movies this week while promoting his own villainous turn in the upcoming sequel Now You See Me 2.
You’ve probably never thought about Daniel Radcliffe as a farting corpse before. Well, thanks to ‘Swiss Army Man’, now you don’t have to. In fact, you can check out a glimpse of the ‘Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone’ actor in his strangest role yet by watching the first trailer for the comedy below.
Remember the one that ‘Finding Nemo’ is about grief and how Nemo doesn’t really exist? Or that Harry Potter is a story an abused boy imagines whilst locked under the stairs? Picking up from the latter, we’re going to assume that one’s not true, because a Harry Potter superfan has uncovered something that’ll no doubt devastate ever Potter fan out there.
Despite being just 26 it feels as though Daniel Radcliffe has been in all of our lives for decades now. Radcliffe made his debut in ‘Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone’ all the way back in 2001. At the age of its release Daniel Radcliffe was just 12.
While the role Daniel Radcliffe played in the ‘Harry Potter franchise can surely never be equalled, that’s not stopped the 26-year-old revealing he’s envious of Eddie Redmayne in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. “Oh f**k you, Eddie, in your brilliant costume,” he told NME.
When James McAvoy recently appeared on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, not only was he charming alongside ‘Victor Frankenstein’ co-star Daniel Radcliffe, he gave us some new info on upcoming flick ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. While the next ‘X-Men’ movie will have to be pretty epic if Bryan Singer wishes to better ‘Days of Future Past’, the interesting possibilities for the plot (comicbook fans might have a better ideas than most) remain a talking point. “Maybe, or maybe not…I just s**t myself because I know Fox Studios who own me might be angry with me for sharing that.” It’s OK, James, we won’t tell anyone.
