The first look at Aardman Animation’s latest claymation opus, directed by ‘Wallace and Gromit’ legend Nick Park, finds a rabbit hunt going somewhat awry. ‘Early Man’ is set at the dawn of time, around the courageous caveman Dug (Eddie Redmayne, no less) and his tribe, as they battle Tom Hiddleston’s Lord Nooth and the denizens of his Bronze Age city to protect their home.
It’s also the second film in a Legendary Pictures mega-monster cinematic universe that began with 2014’s ‘Godzilla’.

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.

So it’s agreed – the quickest way to create an awkward atmosphere in any interview with Tom Hiddleston is to ask about his brief romantic dalliance with Taylor Swift. In fact, just broaching the subject of ‘Hiddleswift’, as it was portmanteau-ed, will likely result in Hiddles sending you some daggers across the studio floor.

Reilly, John Goodman, Toby Kebbel and Tian Jing also feature heavily, but it’s the giant ape who’s the real star of the show.
Poor Tom Hiddleston got himself pilloried after his speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday night. Taking to Facebook, he said: “I just wanted to say… I completely agree that my speech at the Golden Globes last night was inelegantly expressed. Sincerely, my only intention was to salute the incredible bravery and courage of the men and women who work so tirelessly for UNICEF UK, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), and World Food Programme, and the children of South Sudan, who continue to find hope and joy in the most difficult conditions.
Whether it’s the anticipation, the heightened emotions or just downing way too many margaritas, it’s never long before one of Hollywood’s finest makes a right pigs ear of their acceptance speech. Here are some of the worst ever speeches from the Golden Globes. This year’s Golden Globes saw British actor Tom Hiddleston clinch an award for the hit TV series, ‘The Night Manager’.
Tom Hiddleston doesn’t like to talk about his charity work… oh no, hang on, he DOES like to talk about his charity work. “I recently went to South Sudan, which is the youngest country in the world, in East Africa,” he explained as he got up on stage. “The idea that we could provide some relief and entertainment for the people who work for Unicef and Médecins Sans Frontières, and the World Food Program who are fixing the world in the places it is broken made me immensely proud.

It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with Daniel Craig’s future as James Bond. Ever since the release of ‘Spectre’ it’s been widely assumed that Daniel Craig wouldn’t be returning as the world’s most famous spy.
Of course Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston are old friends. Well, Cumberbatch at first made sure to point out that he wouldn’t be talking to Hiddleston about a certain blonde singer, who at the time of their discussion he was dating, and instead focused on Hiddleston’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Loki.
After Marvel’s ‘Civil War: Team Thor’ mockumentary showed the Norse God getting a flatmate, Darryl, director Taika Waititi says we may see more of him in the upcoming instalment.

Tom Hiddleston had his TV Choice Award acceptance speech interrupted by his ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba last night. The Brit was accepting a Best Actor prize for 'The Night Manager’ via video message from the set of the upcoming Marvel adventure.
