Music Stars at the Movies

I have recently re-watched the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born and I then received this amazing infographic from Betway with fantastic research around awards and music stars which just seemed like perfect timing. While Lady Gaga has been nominated for her amazing turn in A Star Is Born, the transition from music to film is not always a smooth one. This makes for interesting reading in all honesty, to show that they are either a massive hit or a masssive flop!

7 Greatest Performances: Christian Bale

Christian Bale is quite possibly one of the greatest British actors of all time. Causing chaos at the Golden Globes when some people didn’t realise that he is Welsh! I found that very amusing but also confirmation that he is therefore a truly outstanding actor! He has been nominated four times for an Oscar-winning for his supporting role in The Fighter.

He is very well-known for his serious method acting and really becoming the character. This has resulted in serious weight loss and weight gain over the years to achieve a totally different look. Not forgetting his working out to become Batman for Christopher Nolan!

He is certainly one of my favourite actors and here are my choices for his 7 Greatest performances . . . (So far) . . .

Marvel has decided totally tease everyone with not only the poster for Spider-Man: Far From Home but also a very good teaser trailer too. It has been causing chaos overnight though with everyone questioning where it fits in with the timeline and the fact that it must contain spoilers for Avengers: End Game. Although I am sure most people have worked out what will happen in End Game?

Check out the trailer . . .
