Sigourney Weaver's close encounter with gorilla

Nov 12 2012, 12:05am CST | by

Sigourney Weaver was ''really brave'' when she came face-to-face with real gorillas in 'Gorillas in the Mist', according to ape impersonator Peter Elliott.

Sigourney Weaver was ''really brave'' when she came face-to-face with real gorillas in 'Gorillas in the Mist'.
The 63-year-old actress played physiotherapist Dian Fossey in the 1988 US drama movie, which saw her star ''right in amongst'' real primates, and ape impersonator Peter Elliott - who played a costumed gorilla in the motion picture - is full of praise for her ''amazing'' heroics in the film.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Sigourney Weaver was really brave in 'Gorillas in the Mist'. About 50 per cent of the shots are real gorillas and some of the ones you see Sigourney in are with real gorillas. She was really right in amongst the gorillas and it was quite amazing.''
The movement actor - who has worked with the likes of Marlon Brando, Martin Freeman, Spike Jonze and John Cleese - helped teach Ray Winstone how to walk like a dwarf in this year's fantasy film 'Snow White and the Huntsman', and he admits it was hilarious watching the 55-year-old actor try to learn each movement.
He added: ''Teaching Ray to walk like a dwarf was quite funny, he was a great laugh. They all were on that picture, really. It was a change for me doing dwarves instead of apes and creatures.
''What you learn by having to study chimps and gorillas is that it's a methodology of how to watch it and then how to teach it and it becomes a transferable skill.''
Peter Elliott plays the part of Mr.B the monkey in the new innovative Barclaycard campaign that showcases its contactless and mobile payment solutions. For more info visit Barclaycard.co.uk/paying

And Ridley Scott explains what we're in for...Ridley Scott filmed Exodus: Gods And Kings (as it is now subtitled) in a way that seemed almost under the radar last year, and judging by the first trailer, now live, it looks like an epic of epic epicness (to steal a tagline from a very different film). Alongside that first trailer, we have two exclusive new stills from the film to share with you. Click below fo ...

Baby Oscar Will Be a Ghostbuster in Ghostbusters 3

Jun 13 2014 11:40am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas
Ghostbusters 3 is a strange kind of limbo at the moment. As far as we know, it is definitely going to happen, however it seems to be progressing at a extremely sluggish pace. Probably, this has quite a bit to do with a lack of director, Harold Ramis' recent death, and the uncertainty of Bill Murray joining the team once again.Despite this, we have received some rather major news for the sequel. We always heard new Ghostbuster ...
