The Rise of Gugu Mbatha-Raw

24 November 2014 7:03 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Gugu Mbatha-Raw — whose name is short for Gugulethu, which is Zulu for “Our Pride” — is quickly showing her versatility as an actress portraying an 18th century aristocrat and a hip-hop star over the course of a year. Mbatha-Raw (pronounced em-bah-tah raw) has been highly praised for both roles and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Mbatha-Raw was trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and in 2009, she starred alongside Jude Law in Hamlet on Broadway.

Prior to her stint on Broadway, she appeared in various television shows and movies, including Doctor Who in 2007.

She followed her Broadway performance with roles in the 2011 film Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, and she played one half of the undercover husband-and-wife CIA team in NBC’s Undercovers. The show, executive produced by J.J. Abrams, was cancelled after 13 episodes. She also appeared in the first season of Touch, »

Gugu Mbatha-Raw keeps the 'Belle' breakout going with 'Beyond the Lights'

13 November 2014 3:59 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Gugu Mbatha-Raw is on the move. After eight years of climbing the industry ladder, first with British TV guest spots and then roles in American series "Undercovers" and "Touch," the 31-year-old actress is breaking out in 2014.   It all began with her most noteworthy role to date, the lead in Fox Searchlight's Spring art house hit "Belle." The period drama which imagines the life of Dido Elizabeth Belle, a mixed race African woman who lived most of her adult life in English nobility, earned strong reviews and has earned Mbatha-Raw two British Independent Film Award nominations. This weekend she follows "Belle" up with something completely different, Gina Prince-Bythewood's impressive contemporary romance "Beyond the Lights." The film finds Mbatha-Raw portraying Noni, a pop-star on the verge of superstardom. Disturbingly and predictably, the sexualization of the music industry has transformed her into a manufactured product she never thought she'd be. Determined to »

Review: Fox's 'Gotham' gives us a Batman show without Batman

18 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A man who decides the best way to fight crime in his native city is to dress up as a giant bat has to be a severely damaged individual on some level. But think about how damaged the city itself has to be for the man to think that the bat costume is necessary. Fox's new drama series "Gotham" (it debuts Monday at 8) wants to dramatize the crumbling infrastructure of Gotham City, which would eventually lead to Batman patrolling its streets. And it wants to play with the many wonderful toys available in that corner of the DC Universe, even if Batman himself can't be one of them, since the series begins with a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) witnessing his parents' murder in a dark downtown alley. DC been down this road before with "Smallville," a show that took 10 seasons to let Clark Kent put on the red cape and blue tights, »

Photos – Gotham Premiere Screening Event And VIP Party In New York City

16 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Easily the most anticipated new show of the season is Gotham, and if you weren’t able to attend the premiere party, here’s the next best thing.

It was clearly quite the party, and even if you aren’t among the hopefuls looking for this to become your next favorite show, it’s a series that absolutely has to be watched… for a while at least. Just based on the cast and crew, and any connection to Batman, you have to check out what they do with this thing. And, I have to say, Donal Logue. The End.

And again, even if you aren’t already sold, there’s something interesting about the idea of expanding on the early years, beyond just the flashback that sets Bruce Wayne in motion.

Well, you may as well check out what went on, and get all the more excited for next week’s premiere of the show. »

Ben McKenzie suffers head injury while filming Gotham

14 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re all very excited by the premiere of Gotham which hits our screens on September 22nd. But remember folks, it’s all fun and games until someone bangs their head against a concrete pillar.

A few days ago Ben McKenzie – who stars as a young Detective James Gordon in the crime drama – was filming a fight sequence when the incident happened forcing him to be rushed to hospital to get stitches in his head.

The actor posted some images on his Instagram account and laughed off the accident afterwards, “Fight scene gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids…Holy concrete wall Batman!”

Check out the graphic image below…

Thankfully it wasn’t a serious injury and he was able to dust himself off afterwards saying “Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday.”

New Gotham featurette focussing on Detective Harvey Bullock

12 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve had a couple of Gotham promos this week featuring on Oswald Cobblepot and Detective James Gordon, and now it’s the turn of Donal Logue’s Detective Harvey Bullock, who is the subject of the latest featurette from the Batman prequel series. Take a look below…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Albert Brooks Joins NFL Concussion Film

10 September 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Albert Brooks has joined the expanding cast for Sony’s as yet untitled film centering on the world of concussions in the NFL, America’s National Football League. Peter Landesman of Parkland fame is scripting the film based on a GQ article which looked at whether concussions caused during the sport could make players crazy, maybe even crazy enough to kill themselves, and whether or not the NFL were supporting scientific research or just discrediting such claims. There is no word yet on whether the article’s title Game Brain will be used or not at this point.

Brooks is set to play Cyril Wecht, a chief forensic pathologist who encourages Dr Bennet Omalu (Will SMith) to continue his research and fight for the truth against the NFL. Alec Baldwin is also part of the cast. Gugu Mbatha-Raw is also in talks to join the cast after rave reviews for Beyond The Lights. »
