Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith will spend an evening on stage together in aid of charity.
Michael Fassbender, Olivia Colman, Martin Freeman, Eleanor Tomlinson and Jamie Dornan are due to walk the red carpet at the British Independent Film Awards on Sunday December 4.
It’s the annual Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences’ Governor’s Awards on Hollywood on Saturday where the heat and the good come out to celebrate those who are receiving special awards – and begin their own trail to the Oscars ceremony in February.
And so the 59th BFI London Film Festival draws to a close for another year. Tonight sees the final big red carpet gala screening with Steve Jobs, but has LFF saved the best for last?
James McAvoy, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kit Harington and Christopher Eccleston will appear on stage in London next month for a special charity performance.
This morning the BFI London Film Festival announced its line-up for 2015. While there was. Lot to look forward to, there were also some glaring omissions (does LFF not like Eddie Redmayne??).
Now I’ve had some time to digest the line-up, here’s my (and this is very subjective) list of 14 films to watch.
Today is one of my favourite days of the year – the day the BFI London Film Festival unveils its programme for 2015. The Festival consistently manages to programme most of the Best Pictures nominees every year – will 2015 be any different?
Here’s our first look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs.
The film is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin (who’s quite good at writing about tech geniuses). The cast also includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels.
Steve Jobs is released in the UK in November – which I think makes it an obvious contender for this year’s London Film Festival.
Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet is in talks to play the lead female role in Jobs, the film about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
If she takes the role, Winslet will star alongside Michael Fassbender who is expected to star as Jobs. Seth Rogen is due to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniack.
The film is being directed by Danny Boyle and is written by Aaron Sorkin.
Could Michael Fassbender finally be the actor who says yes to playing Apple boss Steve Jobs?
According to reports, Fassy is in talks to star in the drama which will be directed by Danny Boyle and is written by Aaron Sorkin – both Oscar winners.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale have both previously been said to be up for the role before both dropping out – which I find strange given the calibre of both the writer and director.
Will Fassbender stick with the project? We’ll just have to wait and see.
