Benedict Cumberbatch @ BFI Festival
I could swear I queued the previous post to appear many, many days ago. O_o
I hope it’s not doing repeats like last time. ^^;
Not a pairing I ship, but hot anyway. XD(x)
7 days of Benedict Cumberbatch
day 4 - favourite film/series: Star Trek Into Darkness
Star Trek Into Darkness teaser poster (x)
Relax, Cupcake it was a joke.
I love the morality play in this movie, the criticism of the excesses of our modern world and what it has lost sight of. This is so deeply and truly Star Trek.
It baffles me how so often the haters of the reboot choose to act as if it was just some action movie with nothing else to it.
Even though the message in it is so clear and it is so much just like the heart and soul of TOS.
Like a dragon flexing his wings in front of his prey… (x)
We’re all doomed…
He so knows what he’s doing…
Another thing that really sets him apart from his contemporaries. He can work a photo shoot like a super model. Not many other actors can do it to that level of sophistication and seductiveness.
i no longer believe that BC is not aware of the maximum damage he can now wield.
Flaunt is as if he ran a focus group of rapacious women prior, and grilled them. saying “ok? right so muscular arms? oookaaay. And you like lateral muscles under bespoke summer suits? *scribbling furiously* Little blond hairs? You like those? Ok… A glimpse of ankle? *nodding accommodatingly* oh and some of you… hang on, let me turn butcher paper over, some of you might have said you’d like me to look over my shoulder after muscle flex at you as if i were to take you on the stairs? did i get that right? Yes?" *changing pen colour to highlight*
*self-combusts and explodes*
I think the first photo is somehow the cutest of all. XD<333
Quick trip to Tussaud’s to see the new waxwork today. Whilst the expression is quite intent, the likeness is incredible.
The expression was chosen by Benedict in conjunction with the artist. John Cormican, who sculpted the work, described how it’s quite a tough process for a sitter. You have to hold the pose and expression for around three hours, lots of measurements. John said Benedict was one of the most kind hearted people he had ever met. Not just in his line of work, but ever. He was very warm and a pleasure to spend that time with. John is himself a Primetime Emmy winning prosthetic artist and so they had something to talk about there. He really couldn’t speak highly enough of Benedict’s time with the Tussaud’s team.
The hands are casts of Benedict’s own.
Oddly, Jeremy Paxman was there filming something on Churchill. He spent a bit of time talking to visitors to the Benedict waxwork. He described meeting Benedict at a party. He was with his children who wanted to meet Benedict so despite not knowing him, Jeremy went and introduced himself and the children. He said Benedict was brilliant with them, and got them talking about their exams and what was happening in their lives. Again, reported as being a lovely chap.
This is the best likeness I’ve ever seen for a wax statue. It’s amazing.
Not sure if anyone is reading this blurb, so maybe I'll start typing random gibberish here, or listing the 243 types of tobacco ash currently smeared in my living-room carpet...
My hobbies involve most things depraved as well as painting, writing, designing stuff and all manner of experiments. It covers a wide range.
I'd like to take over the world but it's time consuming and I'm way too lazy anyway.
It was the built-in fail-safe the scientists came up with to prevent us augments from running amok too much. The lazy gene they secretly slipped us was our doom and is the only reason why we ended up frozen in space instead of still ruling the Earth and having epic augment parties. ;_;
I currently alternate between being stuck in this annoying cryotube and running around fangirling various series.♥
In case it's not clear, this bio may or may not be quite accurate. ;)
But one thing is true, I need porny fanarts and fanfics to survive, more than air. So there you go, with this you should know the main thing there is to know about me...
