Jeremy Irvine and Alice Eve: Skyfall deserves BAFTA nods

Jan 9 2013, 6:14am CST | by

Jeremy Irvine and Alice Eve think 'Skyfall' deserves to be recognised at the BAFTAs.

The 'War Horse' actor and the 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' beauty are fans of Sam Mendes' latest instalment in the James Bond franchise and insist its eight nominations - including for Cinematography, Outstanding British Film, Supporting Actress for Judi Dench and Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem - are well merited.

Speaking after the pair announced the nominations at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' (BAFTA) London headquarters this morning (09.01.13), Jeremy told BANG Showbiz: '' 'Skyfall' has taken quite a few, it's amazing to see a movie that is part of a franchise stand alone.''

Alice added: ''And such a high grossing movie. To come in and take artistic credit, which it deserves, is very unusual.''

The stars also think the Daniel Craig-starring film - which has taken more than $1 billion at box offices worldwide - stands up against other blockbuster thriller franchises.

Jeremy said: ''They've got to compete with the 'Bourne' films and 'The Dark Knight'. 'Dark Knight' was dark! It had to come into the new generation.''

Alice added: ''It's exactly that. We've had a dark time, we've had a pretty rough 2012 and it's not really that light, frothy time. I think these films are reflecting what we're going through.''

Meanwhile, Jeremy will also be rooting for Steven Spielberg's biopic 'Lincoln' - which has a whopping ten nods including Leading Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Film - since the director gave him his big break by casting him in 'War Horse'.

He enthused: ''I don't think it's a surprise to see Spielberg back in the nominations, he's such a kind and generous director and it's no surprise that he gets the best out of people he works with. I think with Daniel Day-Lewis and Joaquin Phoenix in the Best Actor category, I certainly will be watching that!''

Alice chimed in: ''I think that 'Lincoln' has a fair chance of taking a few of them.''

'Lincoln' leads the 2013 EE BAFTA nominations, followed by 'Life Of Pi' and 'Les Miserables' with nine, 'Skyfall' with eight. 'Argo' totals seven, 'Anna Karenina' six, and 'Django Unchained' and 'Zero Dark Thirty' have five each.

THE REACH Review | TIFF 2014

Sep 9 2014 7:33pm CDT | Source: Collider

I like the premise of humans hunting other humans for sport because it’s delightfully ludicrous and perversely entertaining.  It’s a lean, direct concept that removes the frills to become a battle of wits between the hunter and “the most dangerous game”.  For the majority of its runtime, Jean-Baptiste Léonetti’s The Reach sits comfortably inside this framework.  The story takes the occasional shortcut, but it ...

The first teaser trailer has arrived for "The Woman In Black: Angel of Death," the upcoming sequel to 2012's Daniel Radcliffe-led film adaptation of Susan Hill's famed supernatural horror novel.

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Trailer Goes to Dark Places

The Woman in Black opened surprisingly big back in 2012, scoring $20.9 million during its opening weekend and then going on to lock in a grand total of $127.7 million worldwide.  With a $15 million production budget, the film clearly earned itself a sequel, but what’s another Woman in Black without Daniel Radcliffe?  Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine are certainly quality talent as well, but how can you expect them to dr ...
