Interview with Vanessa Kirby | Mission: Impossible - Fallout

The latest film in the Mission Impossible franchise is here and it's safe to say that - once again - Tom Cruise and his IMF team prove that nothing is really impossible.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission goes wrong.

With director Christopher McQuarrie back at the helm of the film (having directed 2015's 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation'), the dynamic cast are joined by Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett and Vanessa Kirby for a truly thrilling movie.

Vanessa Kirby plays White Widow, a black market arms dealer and a brand new character in the franchise. Alec Feldman interviewed her about being involved in the franchise, and who would win in a fight: White Widow or her BAFTA winning 'The Crown' character, Princess Margaret.

DC Exhibition: Dawn Of Super Heroes | Review

DC Comics was founded in 1934 and has been around for over 80 years. The initials 'DC' actually comes from the series Detective Comics, where Batman's debit occurred. The DC Exhibition: Dawn of Super Heroes is at The O2, London until September 9th 2018, and it brings us closer to the characters we see on the big screen.

We are set to have more DC movies soon, with 'Aquaman's anticipated release date set at December 14 and 'Shazam' set at April 5, next year. This exhibition gives you the background and detailed knowledge to equip yourself for the next set of DC movies.

Walk through walls of original art, props, models and costumes and learn about the background of the DC characters. Additionally, you get the chance to listen to audio clips linked to different parts of the DC Universe, as you explore a vast number of characters.

We all know Superman and Batman's origin stories but do we know where the ideas to create these characters came from? With a timeline to show you the creation and the growth of these characters, the exhibition gives you a closer insight into the journey and evolution of our favourite super heroes and villains.

Gaze upon the costumes for Batman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn - to name a few. See the Riddler, the Penguin and the Joker. Be awed by the Batmobile and Catwoman's costume. See original concept art from the Justice League, Wonder Woman and Superman films.

Witness the changes made to characters as different artists and writers work on newer concepts. See how the culture and how the current events at that time impacted the stories told.

An amazing aspect of the exhibition is the chance to see interviews…

Interview with Verne Troyer

Interview with Verne Troyer

Before Verne Troyer made his name as ‘Mini Me’ in the 1999 hit film ‘Austin Powers’, he was a well-known stunt double. Due to his height, he was in the unique position of being able to stunt for small children, for example in the 1994 film ‘Baby’s Day Out’ when he played the stunt double for one of the baby’s.

Following his sad, untimely death, many people are remembering him for his parts in the likes of ‘Austin Powers’ as well as ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’, ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’ and, even, ‘Keith Lemon: The Movie’ - however, W!ZARD Radio Station founder and presenter James Gilmore is in the unique position of having interviewed him in 2015.

Verne was starring in a low-budget film called ‘Convenience’ about two “idiots” who try to rob a convenience store, but ultimately end up working there. To promote the film, he did a series of phone interviews with the press - with James being one of the interviewees that day.

James remembers Verne Troyer’s kindness and genuineness, playing along with the then-17 year old interviewer through a series of, frankly, embarrassing questions!

In the interview, the two discuss Verne’s trips to the infamous Playboy Mansion, his friendship with Leigh Francis (known best for his character Keith Lemon) and more.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.
