This is my askbox. Ask me anything you want.. if it involves Ben then you can have a (virtual) cookie! (preferrably Oreos xD).
I do have a couple ground rules though.
1. I won't talk about BC's private life (its none of our business. He does so much for us, so please don't go poking!) 2. Please for the love of god... NO SPAM!! (I'll probably just delete/ignore it) 3. I have an FAQ thing on my personal Tumblr. 4. Um... If I think of a fourth rule, I'll add it here.
So.. please, ask away! (Anons, I'm watching you.)
Upcoming Magazine Covers
November is going to be one busy month for our man!
Benedict will be gracing the covers of US magazines Out and Flaunt, while back here in England he'll be appearing on Elle's cover!
ALL HAIL THE BATCH has a photo gallery that which has currently been viewed over 18k times and is home to over 2k (including HQs) images of Benedict at events, photoshoots, his films, theatre performances and TV series etc.
These are the trailers for Benedict's upcoming biopic, The Imitation Game. He plays the WWII Enigma Codebreaker, Alan Turing. The film had its world premiere at the 41st Telluride Film Festival to rave reviews.
The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain's top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.
Benedict will be taking on the role of Richard III for a new BBC series of the Hollow Crown which started filming 22nd September 2014 and is due to air in either 2015 or 2016. He will appear in two parts of Henry VI and Richard III.
The long-awaited fourth series of Sherlock is due to starting filming at the end of 2015 and air sometime in 2016. Is he alive? or isn't he?... The mystery behind Moriarty will finally be solved!
