The BAFTAs were handed out yesterday, and Helen Mirren was among the attendees for a special tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. Prince William, BAFTA’s president, was in the audience with wife Kate Middleton. Mirren said: “Cinema at its best does what Her Majesty did effortlessly – bring us together and unite us through a story. Your Majesty, you were our nation’s leading star. “On behalf of BAFTA, thank you for all that you have done for our film and television industry.” “BAFTA’s relationship with Her Majesty was longstanding and BAFTA would not be what it is today without her loyal support,” she added. As we speak, Helen Mirren is in Berlin for the world-premiere of “Golda” – so, lots of updates will be following by the end of this week.

Promotion on “Shazam: Fury of the Gods” is slowly starting once again, and Den of Geek is hosting a special with new pictures and interviews on their site: Crafting brand new villains for a superhero movie extravaganza like Shazam: Fury of the Gods is no easy feat. But in the highly-anticipated sequel, director David F. Sandberg enlisted three Hollywood icons to bring these original antagonists to life. Looking to the mythological origins of the hero Shazam, Sandberg and writers Henry Gayden and Chris Morgan introduce the Daughters of Atlas; Hespera (Helen Mirren), Kalypso (Lucy Liu), and Anthea (Rachel Zegler), who are less than happy to have seen their father’s powers stolen by the titular superhero. For Sandberg, it was a logical choice. “It was just such a cool idea,” the director tells us. “If those powers came from these gods, what if they were actually taken from them? What if they didn’t want to give up their powers and now they’re coming to Earth to take them back and they’re pissed off about it?” It’s an intriguing prospect and one that excited Oscar-winner Helen Mirren. So how does a Dame prepare to play a god like Hespera? “It’s very interesting because no human psychology can come into it,” Mirren shares. “You have to take yourself away from senses of morality or senses of desire or all of the things that you normally would be investigating in a character. You just have to say no, none of that comes into it.” The complete interview can be read here.

Universal Pictures on Friday debuted the new trailer to “Fast X,” the penultimate movie in the “Fast and the Furious” saga. The action packed trailer shows off series newcomers Brie Larson, Alan Richtson and Daniela Melchior, as well as anticipated returns by Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw, Helen Mirren as his mom Magdalene and Charlize Theron’s baddie Cipher. The coming attraction also teases a start to where it all began: a climactic street race between Dom, Dante and the Toretto clan. “We raced for respect,” Dom says of the past. “Today I race to stop the bloodbath.” “Fast X” races into theaters May 19.
