The final trailer for Andy Muschietti's upcoming horror film It: Chapter Two has arrived, and the intensity levels are absolutely through the roof. Send help.

The first trailer focused predominantly on a slow, increasingly uncomfortable confrontation, but the new one gives away more reveals and offers a faster pace.

The second half of Stephen King's legendary 1986 novel It is explored in It: Chapter Two, in the fictional setting of Derry, Maine. The 1,169-page book is fairly monstrous, to say the least.

Muschietti's 2017 It was a massive hit in the cinema, featuring seven Derry kids becoming aware of a horrible monster preying on their town. The kids set out to fight it, stopping our hearts in the process.

The monster is a shapeshifter, but wears the face of a dancing clown named Pennywise normally. Bill Skarsgård's acting skills as the clown have honestly ruined our lives forever.

While the children somehow defeat Pennywise, It: Chapter Two is set 27 years later and they learn pretty quick that Pennywise is still alive. They therefore decide to return to Derry to fight him one final time.

The first It scared the sh*t out of us, but the latest film looks like it'll have a similar dynamic of Pennywise attacking the kids in turn.

The adult version of the 'Losers' Club' (James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Isaiah Mustafa) face Pennywise once again in isolated settings before the final battle.

There'll be plenty of screaming, that much is certain. It lands in cinemas on September 6, prepare the night lights for sleep.

Last summer, the entire country fell in love with two cheeky Corkonian rowers, better know as the O'Donovan brothers.

Olympic silver medalists, Gary and Paul, captured the hearts of the nation with their quick wit and epic one-liners, and it looks like we're no the only ones who fell for their undeniable charm.

Scottish actor, James McAvoy, has said he'd love to play the role of one of the O'Donovan brothers in a movie about their lives, adding that Micheal Fassbender could play the other brother.

James has been a fan of the rowers ever since they appeared together on the Graham Norton Show last December.

Speaking to The Sun, the X-Men star said their story has everything it needs to be a success.

"We’ve been looking to do something else together that has heart, has action, has suspense, has comedy, has Olympic medals. It’s a no-brainer," he said.

"I was just mesmerised by the O’Donovans. They sat on that couch and commanded focus. They were the funniest, coolest guys and just by being themselves, they sort of won over the world. And even though yes, they are much younger than us, that’s what make-up and CGI magic is for."

But what about the West Cork brogue?

Well, according to James that wouldn't be a problem. He reckons he could master the unique O'Dovovan twang thanks to his own Scottish accent.

"They’re of the same family of Celtic sounds. Michael [Fassbender] has the upper hand, but I could handle it."

Nothing is confirmed as of yet, but we're willing to bet good money that this would be one of the most charming and funny Irish films of all time. 


James McAvoy and Anne-Marie Duff met on the set of Shameless and had the perfect on-screen relationship.

That transformed into a real-life relationship for nine years, only for them to separate last year.

They kept up appearances, but filed for divorce during the summer of 2016… and admittedly, our hearts were broken.

And now, James has opened up about how his life has changed since the break-up.

Speaking at the premiere of his new movie, Split, the actor said, "My life has changed massively.

"At the same time, so much has stayed the same. Even separated, we're still respectful of each other and committed to doing that publicly and personally."

It's good to see that there's no horrid fights or nasty jabs being thrown around. Still, we'll miss these two being together.


Actor James McAvoy and his wife Anne-Marie Duff are filing for divorce.

The couple met on the set of Shameless and married in 2006. They made a joint statement together about their separation:

"It is with tremendous sadness that we have come to the decision to divorce.

"We enter this next phase with continued friendship, love and respect for one another and the shared focus of caring for our son.

"We ask that you respect our and, most importantly, our child’s privacy during this time."

The couple are parents to Brendan who was born in 2010.


Yep, the X-Men movies just keep on coming.

The new instalment of the franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse isn't out until May 2016, but the first trailer just got dropped, and it's as exciting as ever. 

Jennifer Lawrence is back as Mystique, along with her ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult as Beast and Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as Magneto and Charles Xavier.

But also look for a little Game of Thrones surprise (Eek!):




Two more top names in Hollywood have come out in favour of our beloved Jennifer Lawrence and we can't say we blame them. 

James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe have revealed exactly what they think of JLaw in a recent press interview for their new film. 

The handsome duo both agreed that they admired Jen's bravery to speak out and in particular for addressing the gender pay gap that exists in the film industry. 

"Jennifer kicked this thing off and I respect that lassie so much," said James. 

"She's proper brave in real life… and she's proper brave when she does her interviews."


Jen recently penned an open letter in which she questioned why she was consistently earning less than her male counterparts (in particular referencing the female cast of her film American Hustle) and whether the fault rests on her own shoulders. 

"I’m over trying to find the 'adorable' way to state my opinion and still be likable! F**k that.

"I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It’s just heard."

The Scottish actor and former Harry Potter star, who are doing the rounds promoting their latest film Victor Frankenstein, were certainly aware of the issues regarding gender pay in Hollywood though James did not see the positives of actors in the industry becoming transparent about their wages. 

"There is definitely an issue and maybe it would be helped by everybody just outing what they earn but I don't want to start putting figures on actors heads," he said.

"I know that there is a massive discrepancy with how women get paid to men but I'm not comfortable with telling the world how much I've got in the bank."

But Daniel defo agreed that there was an issue: "As a progressive liberal industry, we need to sort that shit out." 

Well we just hope that JLaw continues to stick it to the man.

James McAvoy said his experiences of dressing like a woman in Filth were “a little bit dodgy”.

The 35-year-old actor plays a drug addicted policeman called Bruce in the indie flick, based on a novel written by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh.

James did some cross-dressing while filming Filth and opened up about the dangers of walking in high heels.

“[It was] a little bit dodgy, especially on the cobble streets of Edinburgh,” he said.  “I nearly twisted my ankle a couple times. I didn’t fall, thank God. But I did walk very slowly and gingerly.”

Welcome to our world James!

Apart from his cross-dressing adventures, the actor has had a busy year, starring as Charles Xavier in the X-Men series and plays Dr Frankenstein in his latest movie alongside Daniel Radcliffe.

James has revealed that the titular monster isn’t actually at the centre of the film.

”It’s set in the period but it’s not really the existential kind of monster’s [story], it’s more about the relationship between Doctor Frankenstein, who I play, and Igor who Dan [Daniel Radcliffe] plays. The character of Igor isn’t in Mary Shelley’s book, you know what I mean?” he said.


A fellow co-star has called her a demon in a recent interview. Find out why!


We would be lying if we said we weren’t jealous of Graham’s couch last night, as Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy  were there to promote their new film  X Men: Days of Future Past.

Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without some hilarious antics from the guests and Graham managed to succeed in getting the three gorgeous actors to dance along to the summer hit, Blurred Lines.

Thank you Graham, we really appreciate it.
