Just like last year, 2018 has seen a lot of movie-star transformations, with more and more thespians allowing themselves to spend hours in the prosthetic chair to receive massive makeovers in the hope of an Oscar nomination (we’re sure Gary Oldman getting one for his unrecognisable turn as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour didn’t help).Click through the gallery for our picks for the most shocking actor transformations of 2018.Read more15 biggest movie transformations of 2017The actors who went unrecognisable in 2016Hollywood’s most notable deaths of 2018
The actor had to wear a fat suit and prosthetics to play Oliver Hardy in the biopic opposite Steven Coogan as Stan Laurel.
The Step Brothers are reunited – this time playing the world’s greatest consulting detective and his loyal biographer – as Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly star as Holmes & Watson. In cinemas Boxing Day.

The fantasy of a Step Brothers sequel has mostly been just that. Will Ferrell has vaguely suggested Step Brothers 2 isn’t an impossibility, but there’s no guarantee it’ll be coming our way either.

Despite playing a former SAS soldier and undergoing a rigorous military training regime for ‘Kong: Skull Island’, its (human-sized) star Tom Hiddleston admits he’s not tough to be a real special forces operative. “I was trained [for the film] not by the SAS,” explains the star who plays grizzled tracker James Conrad in the film, “because I probably would be dead by now. Because my physical fitness is nowhere near the level required.
It’s official – ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ is in the works. Earlier today, Disney revealed that a sequel to ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ is officially in development over at the studio’s animation division. “It’s top secret but I’ll tell you this much… Ralph leaves the arcade and wrecks the Internet,” teased the film’s star, John C. Reilly.
Disney have been hit with a huge $10 million lawsuit over where ‘Wreck-It Ralph’s’ story came from, with a writer claiming to have come up with the idea before Disney decided to rip it off. It’s quite the claim, considering it’s only now emerged around three years after its cinema release, but Dyke Robinson believes that the Mouse House have nicked the ideas in a manuscript he originally submitted in 2012.
