Richard III filming and Setlock

cantpronounce:

So Judi Dench said they will start work on Richard III with Benedict this week, and that it’s a huge project and filming will go on ‘for 6 months’.

This makes me a little confused because, wasn’t Sherlock supposed to start filming in January (3 months from now?).

If Ben didn’t have the title…

Bye the film, Benedict will not film for six months. That’s all.

Pretty sure the “six months” is for the whole of the Hollow Crown series, four plays combined into three films. “‘We start on Monday and it’s a huge project, six months in filming,’ Dench tells Mandrake of this second cycle of The Hollow Crown.” (That’s from the Radio Times, but I’m on my phone and can’t link…)

I am torn - Hiddles did Hollow Crown first and it is awesome so I automatically hate anyone who attempts to do Hollow Crown now.  But I like Dench and BC - they would have to come up with one hella kickass version of Hollow Crown to get me to like their version.

EDIT: Wait, what, Richard the Third?  D’oh.  It might be ok.  The WWII version with whatshisface was pretty good tho’ - Dench and BC would really have to come up with a decent version to overcome it.

?? It has nothing to do with Hiddles doing it “first”. 1. Jeremy Irons did it first, 2. It’s about Richard III , Hiddles did some other chap. Keep Hiddles away from this tag please.

For non-italians according to this newspaper of course XD:
He’s vegetarian. (this is new to me)
He’s against the Scotland indipendence (“I wish Scotland to remain part of the UK. You can also find independence within a union.”)
He has a passion for cars (“because they are objects of desire, machines that you can own and carry it wherever you want but, paradoxically, I don’t like driving.”)
He thinks that sentimental loneliness can be a benefit for an actor, but he believes in friendship.
He wants to preserve his privacy, he wants his family to be proud of his work and not for the gossip about him.


Can’t be vegetarian, he had to eat a lot of chicken when he was in training for STID

But that was three years ago? He could be now.

Responding to the Absurd Statement of the Day on Twitter. More slamming of fine actors because they’re posh. It’s getting tiresome.

They should all go to America.

Being rly disgusted reading about his transphobic and ableist Benedict Cumberbatch is tbh
I don’t even really like him that much I just can’t believe I never heard about this stuff before?

Because it’s crap.

T hiddles with Benedict and Michael Fassbender all wearing suits omg

I hate how those annoying Hiddlestoners ruined a perfect pic by photoshopping Hiddles into it. He’s such an uncool dancer.

Variety Studio Portraits – Toronto Film Festival [x]"I tracked (the project), is the lingo I think, which is the only time I’ve really done that for a role. There was just something about (Alan Turing) that immediately struck a chord for me."

This is easily one of the most breathtaking pics of him I’ve ever seen.

So he should say it to less beautiful women? Would that make it nice?

yeah, it’s probably okay to say stuff like that to ugly people.

That’s not the point. If you don’t get what he meant, you’re dumb.

Anonymous said: is it ok to still like someone when they say and do problematic things? like i am fully aware and do not support their actions but can i still be a fan??

plantpowur:

yea u can i mean nobody can stop u really!!!! the #1 thing is to acknowledge that the person has done some bad and offensive things. dont defend them for it. having said that, i find it v difficult to continue to enjoy someones work after i find out  that they have done gross things (for example i didnt realise martin freeman was a disgustign moldy sandwich ingrown toenail of a man until after i had become a fan of sherlock and after finding out abt all the gross things he has done i feel uncomfortable watching sherlock because whenever i see john watson i think about the gross things martin freeman has done and i feel kind of disgusting for continuing to watch the programme when i know that the actors have done gross things and not apologised for them)(this isnt letting benedict cumberbatch of the hook bc he has said gross things too but martin freeman is actually the human equivalent of a lunchbox that has been forgotten about during the summer holidays and when its opened after stewing in the warmth of 3 summer months theres grey fungus everywhere and the smell is overwhelming and a wave of nausea hits u and u throw up bc its SO DISGUSTING)(dont get me started on moffat). sometimes it helps to separate the work from the creator - instead of saying “i love (insert name of creator of thing i love)” u can say “i love (insert thing this person has created or worked at)”. also if u dont want to support their work u can just download stuff illegally. idk. also it depends on what they have done. idk u can do whatever u think is ok. its crushing 2 find out that ur favs are problematic i hope ur not finding it 2 tough to deal with.

Omg, this is disgusting. You brainwashed idiots need to be stopped.

Toronto: 'The Imitation Game' Named Festival's People's Choice Winner - Oscar Harbinger?

I’m thinking ahead and don’t want to jinx anything, but if Benedict wins an Oscar, will that ring the death knell for Sherlock the series?  Can an Oscar winner be bothered with or be expected to continue a TV series, unless he has to contractually?  I know TPTB have said we’ll have S5, but, I imagine Benedict would be even more in demand if he wins, if that is even possible (being more in demand).  

I know Benedict loves doing Sherlock and has said he’d like it to continue as long as possible.  Likely it will, at least through S5, with an even longer hiatus between S4 and 5?

*shivers* let’s not worry ahead of time, I guess…

Such nonsense. Look at McConaughey.

True!

Moftiss will have to write extra special brilliant scripts for an Oscar winner though.

Benedict Cumberbatch is horribly transmisogynistic and should not be coddled for it because you like his acting

Sigh people keep repeating stuff that isn’t true…he made the comment before Chelsea came out and the article was published after she came out so…

He didn’t know. And he corrected himself in the next interview. People obsessed with so called “problematic” behavior of celebs should 1. Stop telling lies, 2. Do their research, 3. Look in the mirror.

I’m not afraid to admit that I was wrong, so if you provide a source to the following interview I would be happy to admit that. If you actually looked at my blog for one moment, however, you would notice that I don’t continuously point out problematic people, but when it is something major such as misgendering a trans* person and (so far as I know) being unapologetic about it, I feel that it should be pointed out, especially since many teens (including those who are trans*) are very into him and worship the ground that he walks on. Everyone is “problematic” in some way or another, but those who don’t do their best to change are not worth it

He corrected himself in the next interview, that is apology enough. The interview was about politics and WikiLeaks, not about sexuality. Yes, everyone is problematic, that’s why I hate this word. You can’t know everything about every tiny group within our society. Every human on earth is talking shit every day, and just because people are celebrities doesn’t mean they are not allowed to talk freely. Gosh, give people a break. This man doesn’t hurt anyone on purpose, he is a good, intelligent, well-read human being. There are so many assholes in this world, real sexists, racists, nazis. Why don’t people fight against this people? I know: because it’s so much easier to hate on some actor who gives 100 interviews every week about 1000 subjects and is watched by million people doing that.
It’s really getting ridiculous. Some crazy social justice warriors use media as sources for this hate they normally wouldn’t trust. Yesterday I saw someone saying Cumberbatch was supporting slavery… Wtf? He did a TV documentary about and against it.
He supports so many charities, he talked about so many social issues… Strange, the haters never talk about THAT.
I’ll leave it now, because some people will never get how wrong this “yourfaveisproblematic” shit really is and what a poor way of fighting for social justice.

That’s not an actual apology!! Did he bring up his previous mistake and apologize for it? I have no way of knowing seeing as I asked you to link me to that article and you haven’t. Besides, who are you to decide what an apology to a trans person is?
I understand that celebrities are busy, but if they’re too busy to ever admit they are wrong, then they’re probably also too busy to ever film anything or participate in interviews because it only takes a few seconds.
Also, do you realize how horrible it sounds when you say “real sexists, racists, nazis”? That sound very similar to a scene from The Help when an incredibly racist person said “there are real racists out there!” Also, where did the nazi part come from? How is that remotely relevant?

Oh come on. It’s enough now. The man doesn’t hate transgender people. Period.

Anonymous said: Um I don't think you have go SEE sex to understand if he's gay. I mean they do say it in the film I don't know why you think that seeing sex is the only way to validate a persons sexuality in films?

Hey, nonny!

I totally understand your POV. 

I wish we lived in a world where we had diverse films about queer people! Queer films that chose to show explicit sex scenes, queer films that decided only to show kissing, queer films that really are only interested in following dates that involve conversation & picnics & roasting marshmallows.

However, we don’t live in that world yet. We get, at best, one movie a year that features a queer protagonist (and this is usually a ‘troubled’ cis gay white dude, but that’s a subject for another day). Basically, what I’m saying is, because we hardly ever get films about queer people, when we do get a film about a queer person, I want it to be done right. What does ‘done right’ entail for me? It entails the straight ppl who are writing the scripts, directing the film, and acting the roles, STOP SHYING AWAY FROM THE FACT THAT GAY PPL HAVE SEX.

How many sex scenes between straight people do we get in films? A LOT. How many sex scenes between queer people do we get in films? Uh….barely ANY.

I agree, seeing sex is not the only way to validate a person’s sexuality in films.But, frankly, I’m tired of straight people tip-toeing around the fact that GAY PEOPLE HAVE SEX. 

As a queer person, I want to see Alan Turing saving the world with SCIENCE! As a queer person, I want to see Alan Turing going on a cute picnic with his bf. And, as a queer person, I also want to see Alan Turing having raunchy gay sex. I want them to explore all aspects of Alan Turing’s life - INCLUDING THE VERY REAL FACT THAT HE HAD SEX.

Would we be having the same conversation if this was a biopic about a straight man? No. Because there would be a sex scene in the movie. 

And no, there wouldn’t be a sex scene if Turing would have been straight.

Has there been a sex scene in Argo? Has there been a sex scene in The King’s Speech? Has there been a sex scene in…. I could go on and on…
