    The actors who went unrecognisable in 2016

    A raft of thespians really made the effort to become unrecognisable for roles in 2016, whether through over-eating (McConaughey), heavy prosthetics (Downton’s Dan Stevens for ‘Beauty and the Beast’) or simply just bad eyebrows (John Travolta in ‘The People Vs O.J.

    Idris Elba’s latest movie has bombed at the box office

    Idris Elba’s ‘100 Streets’ is one such film. Elba, famed for his role in ‘The Wire’, has appeared in a host of features like the ‘Thor’ franchise, ‘Prometheus’, ‘Pacific Rim’, and this year’s ‘Zootropolis’. Joining him in ‘100 Strets’ are Gemma Arterton, Tom Cullen, and Franz Drameh, yet the British flick could only muster £245 in its opening weekend, according to HuffPost.
