One Of These Men Is A Mole In 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Teaser

Benedict Cumberbatch is on the case. Super 8 drew unexpected backlash from people who need to have opinions about things because they felt the film looked too Spielbergish. However, I doubt that Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy will draw criticism for its retro 1970's English vibe. The English-language debut from Let The Right One In director Tomas Alfredson, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy stars Gary Oldman as a spy in the British Intelligence community trying to uproot a mole amongst its ranks. He sends British Namey Award Winner 2010 Benedict Cumberbatch to investigate five high-ranked agents to figure out which one it is. It turns into a race against time as the mole blows the cover of the best agents. And Colin Firth looks wicked guilty.

'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Rolls Out An Awesome Trailer

'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' looks like it will be this year's best film about British guys not trusting one another. From the looks of this new trailer, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy looks like it will be this year's best film about British guys not trusting one another. Set during the Cold War, Gary Oldman stars as a former MI6 agent to root out a mole in the upper echelons of the agency. Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong,  Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham also star. The earlier teaser focused on Cumberbatch's character whereas this one centers more on Tom Hardy, who first learns of the double-agent and brings the information to the organization. But can he be trusted? I say just fire the whole lot of them.


Jon Stewart Tells Benedict Cumberbatch He Wants To Rip His Clothes Off

But, like, in a professional, journalistic way, I'm sure. Benedict Cumberbatch sure has been making the rounds recently to promote The Imitation Game. It seems you can't swing a dead cat without some story about Cumberbatch being charming as hell and imitating the Queen or turning toxic waste into roses or something. The guy is matched only by Chris Pratt in the "can do no wrong" category. So it's little surprise that Daily Show host Jon Stewart had a hard time controlling his urges when interviewing the British actor. In fact, Jon Stewart didn't just have a hard time controlling his urges, he ignored them completely, asking Ben to remove his clothes.


Benedict Cumberbatch Does A Wicked Jar-Jar Binks Impression

Why? Because he can, that's why. Big ups to fanboy (and especially fangirl) fave Benedict Cumberbatch, who, despite his upright British manner and role selection, seems to be something of a giant goofball. In this interview, with little prompting, Benedict, who calls himself a bit of a poseur when it comes to fanboy culture, offers up not one, but two killer impressions. The first, as mentioned in the title, is nobody's favorite Star Wars character, Jar-Jar Binks. The second, slightly more understandable impression, is Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Take a look and fall in love with Cumberbatch all over again.


Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Break Nazi Codes In 'The Imitation Game'

He plays an intelligent British man. Stop us if you've heard this one before. After having dabbled in Star Trek and The Hobbit, Benedict Cumberbatch has returned to more human pursuits. This time, he's playing renowned codebreaker Alan Turing, who uses his math skills to put those damn Nazis in their place during WWII. Keira Knightley will play friend Joan Clarke, and lots of other British actors you may or may not recognize, but certainly don't know by name, will be in it. The Imitation Game will also dive into some of the darker aspects of Turing's life, like his incarceration in the 1950's for being a homosexual, and his suicide shortly thereafter. Codebreaking!


Latest 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Trailer Focuses On Alice Eve In Underwear (And Reveals Benedict Cumberbatch's Character)

Plus, an Easter Egg! We've seen a few trailers at this point and heard all of the rumors but now, thanks to this UK trailer, we finally see the proof with our own eyes and ears. Alice Eve does indeed show up in skimpy underwear in Star Trek Into Darkness. Oh, and the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain is revealed at long last. Cumberbatch plays John Harrison, a top Starfleet agent who is now dedicated to f*cking up their sh*t. Against Starfleet's wishes, Chris Pine's Kirk vows to bring Harrison to justice. The young captain seems in over his head as his reckless pursuit of the terrorist puts his crew and loved ones in jeopardy. Now, back to Alice Eve in her underwear. The not-easily-distracted folks at TrekMovie noticed an URL hidden in the shot of Ms. Eve showing off her space panties which did not lead to more pictures of Eve sadly. Instead, it revealed the film's new international poster. How did I not notice that? Just think of all the coded messages I may have missed by oogling actresses in their underwear all these years?


Benedict Cumberbatch Said Smaug Motion Capture Suit Made Him Feel 'Like An Idiot'

Somewhere, Andy Serkis just collapsed to the ground. There's a price to pay for being in the adaptation of a Tolkien work. You have to appear very small, or have hairy feet, or...something. It's mostly downside, apart from the prestige. And the normally agreeable Benedict Cumberbatch admitted to Radio Times that playing Smaug in a motion capture suit, he looked like an "idiot," and a "penis." I agree with the first one, but don't really see the second one. Maybe he's seen some grey penises in body stockings with little ping pong balls attached. I can't speak to his experiences. Anyway, take a look at what went into making Smaug for The Hobbit film. Not only was it costly, but the producers made Benedict Cumberbatch feel like a penis.


The World Gets Torn Down In 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Trailer

It looks awesome. Captain America is back and adjusting to having to punch bad guys in modern day. Judging from this first trailer, it looks like it won't disappoint. Here we see Chris Evans as Cap teaming up with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow to take on a new threat from his past -- his former boy sidekick Bucky Barnes reborn as The Winter Soldier aka Guy Who Can Catch Cap's Shield. I especially like around the 2:00 mark where they slap-box and look like sparring kittens. Anthony Mackie also looks awesome as The Falcon taking on a f&*king jet with two Uzi pistols. All in all, impressive work from directors Anthony and Joe Russo. The guys best known for that NBC monkey comedy that bombed really hard.


Set Aside Four Minutes To Watch This 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' Clip

Looks like it took on some elements of 'Bourne'. One of the most anticipated films of the year is inching its way to theaters, and we've got an early four-minute look at what we're in for with Captain America: Winter Soldier. It's nothing unexpected or surprising, but it looks pretty fun nonetheless, and it seems to be even more stylized than the original. So take a gander, and see if the slightly new direction this franchise has taken makes it more or less appealing to you. If you're a fan of the Marvel universe, though, you've probably already made up your mind.
