How does a bear from Darkest Peru come to be named Paddington? In this exclusive clip from the film, which will be released in the United States this weekend, the bear gets his English name. It comes of course from London’s Paddington station, where the Brown family comes across him. (Not from a bottle of ketchup.) READ FULL STORY
Tag: Sally Hawkins (1-4 of 4)
It had been less than 24 hours since Blue Jasmine actress Sally Hawkins returned from Los Angeles and the Golden Globes ceremony when she was throttled with the stunning news that she’d been nominated for an Oscar for her turn as Ginger, Jasmine’s working-class sister who reluctantly takes in the former socialite when she shows up on her doorstep penniless in Woody Allen’s latest film.
“I’m in a state of overwhelm, so thrilled and delighted,” said Hawkins, who had just returned from an unglamorous grocery-shopping outing to find herself bombarded with phone calls from family, friends, and her emotional agent.
“I had just stumbled through the door with bags in hand, tripping over suitcases that had yet to be unpacked,” said Hawkins, who had yet to eat the lunch she had bought for herself.
The 37-year-old actress, best known for her work with British writer-director Mike Leigh, said that though she knew her time on set with Jasmine star Cate Blanchett and Woody Allen was special, she never at the time imagined it could lead to an Oscar nomination.

Casting Net: Jessica Chastain for 'Crimson Peak'; Plus, Bradley Cooper to replace Jude Law in Natalie Portman pic, more
• Guillermo del Toro is assembling quite the A-List cast for his gothic horror film Crimson Peak. Yesterday, we learned that Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) had joined the cast, and news broke today that two-time Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain is in final negotiations to star in the film. Del Toro produced Mama, which starred Chastain, but has never directed the Zero Dark Thirty star before. The project is the midst of a script re-write with Del Toro and Lucinda Coxon (The Heart of Me). Matthew Robbins (The Sugarland Express) wrote the original draft with Del Toro. [Variety]
• The trouble-plagued production for Jane Got a Gun may have finally gotten some good news. It looks like Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper is set to take over for Jude Law, who left the project late last month, as did director Lynne Ramsay. Warrior director Gavin O’Connor has since taken over, and they’ve continued shooting what they can with Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton. [Deadline]
