Daniel Radcliffe’s Imperium Gets Digital Release in UK
Posted by Megs

Daniel’s Radcliffe’s latest film Imperium is now available digitally for fans in the UK. Digital streaming platform Colony has released the film today. Imperium is a bruising, unsettling thriller which sees Harry Potter star Radcliffe take on the role of a young, idealistic FBI agent, who goes undercover to take down a radical right-wing terrorist group. You can purchase the film via Colony and check out the trailer below:

Since the film is only available in the UK, our correspondent Charlotte was kind enough to review the film for us.

In Imperium, Daniel Radcliffe plays Nate Foster, a young, driven FBI agent, who goes undercover to foil a white supremacist group, and their radical terrorist plot. A reclusive administrator, Nate is involuntarily thrust into field, at the request of his boss, Angela Zamparo (Toni Collette).

Imperium seems to be more concerned with the organizational structures of anti-Semitic groups, than the terror plots themselves. As a result, this allows for enormous character development, and an intense, dark and dramatic piece of filmography.

Whilst the plot is a slow-burner, Radcliffe’s performance is enthralling. During his first, complex scene, Nate reasons with a suspected terrorist in Arabic, once again highlighting Radcliffe’s multifaceted acting talent.

Daniel Radcliffe Talks His Career with Buzzfeed
Posted by Megs

In a new interview with Buzzfeed, Daniel Radcliffe talks about everything from Now You See Me 2 to Kill Your Darlings, What If and Frankenstein. Some highlights from the interview maybe read below.

How did you feel about how Kill Your Darlings, What If, and Horns ended up doing at the box office?

Daniel Radcliffe: It is what it is. Kill Your Darlings did exactly what I expected it to do. A gay murder movie is never going to be, like, breaking box office records. And you know, it was an indie movie that was made for nothing, so there was never a pressure for it to do anything.

F Word, if it had been allowed to be called The F Word… I actually think the title change makes a huge difference. I think F Word is a fantastic title. I think What If is, you know, not a fantastic title. It’s a title. It’s fine. It’s words. It’s funny that kind of thing can make a difference.

You’ve got to bear in mind, like, those films all came at a time when people were like, “Can he even act? Will he even do anything after Potter?” And so those films did what I needed [them] to do. I was good in them, and they showed different sides of me. I can’t control what happens at the box office. Frankenstein, I don’t know if it’s going to do anything. Who knows?

All I can do is do my best work in the movie that I can, and promote the hell out of it as much as I can. What people go and spend money to see is up to them. My friends have a great motto, which is, “I’d rather be nine people’s favorite thing than 100 people’s ninth favorite thing.” I feel like that’s absolutely true.

You’re nominally attached to several independent films that don’t yet have financing — Brooklyn Bridge with Brie Larson, Young Americans with Dane DeHaan, a Yakuza thriller called Tokyo Vice.

Daniel Radcliffe: I’ve learned over the years that it is harder to get these films made, but they are the things that I love doing. I never want to become one of those actors who’s on set and hates their fucking job. So I’ve got to keep myself entertained.

Even among actors that I really like as people, and they’re good people, there’s a tendency en masse when they all get together to moan and complain. The worst day on a film set is still better than the best day on most jobs, in my opinion. I’m not saying actors aren’t entitled to have bad days. But, like, you never see one of the camera guys come in and be like, “Oh, I’m just having a terrible day. I’m not sure if I can do this today.” It’s like, fuck off. He’d be fired. And actors, because our job has an emotional bent to it, they take it as an excuse to sort of be like, This is all therapy. And it’s not. If you’re having a bad day, get on with your job, because you having a bad day can affect everyone around you.

Daniel Radcliffe to Receive Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, Featured in Nylon Magazine
Posted by Megs

It was revealed earlier this week that Daniel Radcliffe will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on November 12th. The ceremony will be streamed online at 11:30 a.m. PST on the Hollywood Walk of Fame’s website. Chris Columbus, who directed Dan in the first two Potter films, will be one of the guest speakers.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Daniel Radcliffe will be honored with the 2,565th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, November 12th at 11:30 a.m. PST. The star in the category of Motion Pictures will be dedicated in front of The Dolby Theatre at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard. “Fans of all ages have been waiting in anticipation of Daniel’s star ceremony. They are constantly asking when it will happen. Finally, we have him here in Hollywood, and we are proud to dedicate his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” stated Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies.

Daniel is also featured in the November issue of Nylon Magazine. In the issue he talks about Emma Watson, keeping in touch with other Potter co-stars and his role in Victor Frankenstein which will be released on November 25th. Some snippets from the interview may be read below. He talks about Emma’s HeForShe movement and slips in a bit of information about one of his newest projects, Swiss Army Man.

Radcliffe also speaks highly of former co-star Emma Watson’s HeForShe campaign to promote gender equality: “I think it’s fantastic that she’s bringing attention to it and adding to the conversation. I also find it bemusing, honestly, maybe because I have cool parents with a very equal marriage and have had good role models all my life, but I thought this was done,” he says. Things are improving, at least in his own industry, Radcliffe adds, noting that he’d never seen a film crew more equally split gender-wise than on the set of Swiss Army Man, which he’s just returned from after 25 days of shooting. He describes the film as “super weird,” “the craziest thing I’ve ever done,” and “intoxicating.” Without giving away too much of the plot, he reveals that the film includes singing and a guy befriending a dead body.

He also quickly discusses Victor Frankenstein:

Told from Igor’s perspective, Victor Frankenstein explores the young assistant’s backstory as well as the infamous outcome of the duo’s experiments. “I like the fact that it’s a studio movie with these big sets and sequences, but there’s also a cool intellectual debate going on—our innate fear of technology and the fear of people who push it beyond where we’re comfortable with it going—it felt like a nice combination,” he says.

Update: Watch the ceremony below:
