“I have a little bit [of action] but I don’t have as much action as the boys, which I’m working on,” Arterton says.
The film, set during World War II, tells the story of Alice, an independent folklore investigator (Gemma Arterton) whose life is turned upside down when she has to take in an evacuee.
Boney M might have focused on his credentials as a 'love machine', but the new trailer for The King's Man is focusing instead on Grigori Rasputin's homicidal tendencies.
Gemma Arterton has taken stock of her role in the Bond movie Quantum of Solace, re-writing her part for a new book.
Gemma Arterton has spoken of how her grandmother, who took her own life in 2010, has continued to inspire her career.
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.
Gemma Arterton is quietly enjoying her own career renaissance. The actress shot to fame in 2008’s ‘Quantum of Solace’ playing Bond girl Strawberry Fields opposite Daniel Craig, a role she quickly followed with headlining parts in ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’, ‘Clash of the Titans’, and ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’, but no sooner had she hit the Hollywood blockbuster A-list that she began to bid a hasty retreat. The 30-year-old star quit marching to Hollywood’s tune four years ago, telling the Guardian recently she simply “couldn’t do it any more”, and she now prefers smaller roles in indie films (she recently became fluent in French for ‘Gemma Bovery’), and this week she can be seen in ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’, a zombie film from first-time director Colm McCarthy (‘Sherlock’).
Straight out of (what feels like) nowhere, Warner Bros. has just unleashed the first trailer for new British zombie thriller ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’, and it’s one of the most intriguing debut trailers we’ve seen in a long time. The film looks like a cross between ‘28 Days Later’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ - two of the best recent entries in the zombie genre - which can’t be a bad thing, and it stars Paddy Considine, Gemma Arterton, and Glenn Close alongside newcomer Sennia Nanua in the title role - also, definitely “not a bad thing”. The girl’s “gifts” appear to be some sort of immunity to the zombie pathogen that she’s been infected with in a twisted human experiment.
If you were looking forward to more big screen adventures with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the fairy tale siblings grown up as badass evil-bashing bounty hunters, we have both some good news and some bad news for you. Deadline reports that the in-development sequel to the 2013 comedy horror ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ has had the plug pulled by studio Paramount - who plan instead to take the property to the small screen for a spin-off TV series. In some ways this isn’t too surprising, as things had long seemed shakey around ‘Hansel & Gretel 2.’ The first film had only been a moderate success, under-performing in the US but doing well internationally, so questions were asked over how in-demand the sequel really was.
A follow-up movie to 2013 comedy horror ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ is in the works - and now, we may have an idea of the title and just a hint of what it might all be about. Tommy Wirkola, writer-director of the Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton vehicle, has opted not to return behind the camera for the sequel, but did pen the screenplay. One among these was VFX artist turned director Steven Ilous, who recently shared concept art he worked on for the film at his website (via Comicbook.com).
Okay - we’ll admit we didn’t see this one coming, as we’d long since assumed this one to be deader than the Wicked Witch of the West.
