Big Trouble in Little Downton: When Dan Stevens met Kurt Russell

the-guest

Downton Abbey fans may be a tad surprised by Dan Stevens’ recent choice in roles, which include a gun-toting Kentucky army veteran in the bananas action movie The Guest (out Sept. 17) and a New York drug dealer in the Liam Neeson-starring private eye thriller, A Walk Among the Tombstones (out Sept. 19). But such projects are very much in the wheelhouse of the man who spent three years playing the period drama’s dashing Matthew Crawley, as this writer discovered when he recently met with the actor for a feature in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. “I’m a genre fan,” he explained, over dinner at a restaurant close to where the British actor now lives in Brooklyn.

Shlocky charms: The crazy rise and 'terrifying' return of 'Leprechaun'

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.

New 'Dumb and Dumber To' posters spoof 'Lucy'

If most people only use 10 percent of their brains, then Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne must use a maximum of 1 percent. At least, that’s the idea behind the newest posters for Dumb and Dumber To.

Dumb and Dumber To stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to reveal two new posters for the film, which showcase a marketing campaign that might look familiar. The tagline reads, “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what he could do with 1%.”

If the guys’ colorful eyes didn’t tip you off, you’ll probably recognize that line from this summer’s Lucy: The tagline for the Scarlett Johansson film read, “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what she could do with 100%.”

When EW visited the London shoot of Paddington last year, everyone seemed thrilled that King’s Speech Oscar winner Colin Firth was voicing the film’s titular, marmalade-loving bear. “What we liked about Colin is that he’s got a bearish voice, he’s got a sense of humor, and he presents the very best of British,” explained producer David Heyman (of Gravity and the Harry Potter series). “We wanted that.”

Box office report: 'Apes' conquers, 'Boyhood' starts strong

If this weekend’s number one movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes — the second entry in the rebooted Apes franchise — has a spiritual sibling in the original series of films, it is 1972’s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. While Conquest was the fourth movie in the franchise to arrive in cinemas it is, like Dawn, the second according to the interior timeline of its series and, again like director Matt Reeves’ new film, features an apocalyptic showdown between apes and humans. Thus, it seems appropriate that this weekend Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comprehensively conquered the domestic box office by earning an estimated $73 million, exceeding both expectations and the $54.8 million opening weekend of its predecessor, 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
