David Tennant on the set of 'United'

David Tennant has been in Tynemouth, North Tyneside shooting scenes for United:

Surprised passengers and TV fans coming out of Tynemouth station were stunned to see cameras pinpointed on David, wrapped in a 1950s style camel coat, and stood beside an old-fashioned car.

IT engineer Barry Ward, from Sunderland, was among the starstruck onlookers.

The 27-year-old said: “I asked a security man and was told they were filming the return of Bobby Charlton but I could only see David and a female actor. They got off a train, came out the station and were then getting into the car and I could hear David’s broad Scottish accent.

“I know he’s from Scotland anyway but when you heard him speak he had a very exaggerated accent.

“There were quite a lot of amused faces when people came out and saw Doctor Who was in town.” [Sunday Sun]

United will air on BBC Two sometime next year in the UK and will reportedly get a theatrical release internationally.

Gerard Butler and Kevin McKidd attend CNN Heroes Tribute

Gerard Butler presented at this year's CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute this Saturday in LA. The ceremony will air this Thursday. Gerard presented a £16,000 prize to fellow Scotsman Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, founder of Mary's Wheels:
Butler praised the charity worker whose organisation provides school meals for hungry children in developing countries.

He said: "I'm proud because he's a fellow Scot. Every day Magnus lets children know that they matter, that someone thousands of miles away cares about them."

Mary's Meals was founded when Mr MacFarlane-Barrow and his brother Fergus made a plan to deliver aid to Bosnia while having a drink at their local pub.

Mr Butler said: "They were having a drink and talked about the heart-wrenching images of the Bosnian war they'd seen on TV. So they made an extraordinary decision that most of us don't make. They decided to help."

Mary's Meals provides a school meal a day for almost 460,000 children in 16 countries. [Karie Gillett]

Kevin McKidd and Ewan McGregor join campaign to save RAF base

Kevin and Ewan, (who both starred in Trainspotting) have joined an effort to help save an RAF base from being shut down:
McKidd, who is currently based in Los Angeles, said: "This would be devastating for Moray, plain and simple - not just for Lossiemouth but the entire region. In what are already difficult times economically, it seems this move would throw the Moray area into a downward spiral."

First poster for Ewan McGregor's 'The Impossible'

There hasn't been much new information about The Impossible since Ewan McGregor's involvement in the film was announced last May. Production was originally scheduled to start in August, but that has probably been moved up. Yesterday, Collider (via Best of Ewan) was able to get a photo of the film's promo poster and a copy of the synopsis at the American Film Market.


A terrifying and emotional story based on one family’s experience of the 2004 tsunami, THE IMPOSSIBLE is a compelling account of perseverance and survival in the face of unimaginable disaster and chaos.

MARIA (Naomi Watts), HENRY (Ewan McGregor) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her.

Henry grabs the two youngest boys, SIMON and THOMAS, but it’s too late: the wave smashes into him with incredible force and dislodges his grip. Maria is pushed underwater, where she is crushed and battered by debris to the brink of death. She finally surfaces in a raging black sea, which has completely submerged her three-story hotel and the surrounding landscape. Maria gasps for breath, while she tries to understand what has just happened, convinced that her family has been obliterated in the blink of an eye. But then, her eldest son, LUCAS (Tom Holland), surfaces a few meters ahead in the wild flood. Face-to-face with something unexpected and incomprehensible, she must fight against all odds for her child’s survival. And her own.

Based on a true story, THE IMPOSSIBLE is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. But the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives. Both epic and intimate, devastating and uplifting, THE IMPOSSIBLE is a journey to the core of the human heart.

James McAvoy cast in 'Arthur Christmas'

James McAvoy has been cast as Arthur in 3D CG-animated film Arthur Christmas along with Hugh Laurie, Imelda Staunton, and Billy Nighy. The film is set for release on November 23, 2011.
Set on Christmas night, the story of Arthur Christmas at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: 'So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?' The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic – a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.
