Warren Beatty’s 2001 farce, in which he plays a super-rich architect juggling different women, is one of the biggest bombs in Hollywood history losing over $90m in total for New Line Cinema. Back in the late-1990s, director Peter Chelsom was about to break into the Hollywood big time. “Peter Chelsom was a great guy, really understands cinema, but Warren was off on a track,” said the film’s cinematographer, William Fraker, who called ‘Town & Country’ a “complete disaster”.
This is the 43-year old actress’s fourth time in the role (fifth if we count her brief cameo in prequel ‘Underworld: Rise of the Lycans’), and its emergence naturally leads us to consider the highs and lows of Beckinsale’s career thus far – and ask whether the one-time rising star might be on the rise once again. As the daughter of the late sitcom icon Richard Beckinsale (of ‘Porridge’ and ‘Rising Damp’), it’s not unreasonable to say that Kate Beckinsale came to the screen as British acting royalty of sorts. As such, she was in suitably auspicious company on her film debut in Kenneth Branagh’s celebrated 1993 Shakespeare adaptation ‘Much Ado About Nothing,’ admirably holding her own alongside such established stars as Emma Thompson, Denzel Washington, Michael Keaton, and of course Branagh himself.
Unveiled by the folks at Empire Magazine, these new shots show Kate Beckinsale getting back into the swing of things as she kick ass as the vampiric death dealer, Selene. “She’s always been really passionate,” she reveals.
Selene has evolved in a new ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ trailer. It’s here - the final trailer for ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ has just debuted online, and it looks pretty awesome. Starring Kate Beckinsale as the legendary death dealer, ‘Blood Wars’ takes the ‘Underworld’ saga in a whole new direction.
Sorry ‘Blade’ fans - the vampire hunter won’t be back after all. It’s no secret that Kate Beckinsale thinks there’s grand plans for Blade - Marvel’s iconic vampire hunter. Asked whether or not ‘Underworld’ and ‘Blade’ could crossover, she explained that the filmmakers approached Marvel with the idea… but they already had plans for the character.
The new trailer for ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ hints at a grand finale to the conflict that has now been raging for five films over thirteen years. Directed by first-timer Anna Foerster and written by Cory Goodman, ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ sees Kate Beckinsale return as vampire warrior Selene for the fourth time (she sat out 2009 prequel ‘Underworld: Rise of the Lycans’).
The left needs Donald Trump to go away yesterday, while the right feels the same about Hillary Clinton. Someone like… Oprah Winfrey or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? “Everyone keeps talking about The Rock for president,” said Scott Eastwood (Snowden).
