After a long wait of over two years, “The Duke” finally releases UK theaters today. The true story, about a 60-year old taxi driver who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in 1960’s London, was filmed in 2019, premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2020 and was then postponed time and again due to the COVID pandemic. Unfortunately, the film’s director Roger Michell, who directed Notting Hill and My Cousin Rachel, among others, passed away last year and couldn’t see the release of “The Duke”, which now marks to be his last film. For the film’s release, additional interview clips and pictures have been added to the archive.

Dame Helen Mirren has appealed for donations for the hungry and vulnerable at Christmas, urging people to donate to Britain’s online food order and delivery service Just Eat’s Christmas campaign, a collaboration with the charities Social Bite and Foodcycle.

After the disappointment of last Christmas, coming together with loved ones this year will feel even more special. But for many in the UK, this winter will be a time of hunger and loneliness. But you can help those less fortunate. For the second year running, the charities Social Bite and FoodCycle, have teamed up with Just Eat to help provide Christmas meals and support to the homeless, lonely and vulnerable. When you order a meal on Just Eat, you can select an amount to give, and Just Eat will match the donation pound for pound. They’re using their network of staff, restaurants and delivery drivers as a force for good and have pledged to provide at least 200,000 meals for those in need. If you can, please donate. It’ll make a world of difference to those who need it the most.

Jason Kenny, JustEat’s managing director commented: “At Just Eat we believe in the power of food in bringing people together. This is our biggest charitable initiative to date, and we’re proud to be able to use our entire network as a force for good. We hope that together we can make a real difference to those who need it most this winter.” Josh Littlejohn, the head of Social Bites commented: “Whilst many of us will be able to share Christmas dinner with loved ones this Christmas, thousands of homeless people will spend Christmas alone on the streets of the UK and many homeless families and children will wake up on Christmas morning in temporary accommodation. That’s why we’re thrilled to be teaming up with Just Eat for a second year running for the Christmas Meal Appeal, which is going to make such a difference to the UK’s most vulnerable people.’’ In addition, Just Eat has created a directory that showcases those supplying hot meals for those with nowhere to go during the holiday season.

On Tuesday, Helen Mirren participated on a virtual press junket to promote the television premiere of “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses” on Cartoon Network, TBS, and HBO Max Nov. 28. Her interviews appeared on Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, The Today Show and The Talk. Scroll down to find all clips in the video archive. While discussing her role as host of the Harry Potter-themed fan competition series, Mirren reflected on which house she thinks she would belong to if she were to attend the fictional magic academy. “If I had to choose, I’d probably choose Slytherin, because there’s a punkishness about Slytherin that appeals to me,” Mirren told People Magazine. “You know, the bad boys on the motorbikes kind of thing.” House Slytherin is home to a number of dark witches and wizards in the Harry Potter book and film series, including Bellatrix Lestrange and Draco Malfoy – as well as Lord Voldemort himself. In the TBS and Cartoon Network four-part special event premiering Sunday, Harry Potter fans will put their knowledge to the test and compete in an intense game of trivia based on the beloved franchise. The bracket-style competition will see players compete for their respective Hogwarts Houses (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin) in teams of three, with each House competing in four battles to answer an array of questions relating to the Harry Potter saga.
