This week Juno made an appearance on TV show Drunk History where she played Sybil Luddington, heroine of the American Revolutionary War who is famous for her night ride on April 26, 1777 to alert American colonial forces to the approach of the British. HD screen captures of her appearance have now been added to the gallery.

Warner Bros. has set a Sept. 18, 2015 release date for its untitled Whitey Bulger biopic starring Johnny Depp.
The movie has been shooting in Boston with Scott Cooper directing a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Jesse Plemons, Sienna Miller, Dakota Johnson, Adam Scott and Corey Stoll.
Warner Bros. came on board in February to co-finance with Cross Creek and release the film — then titled “Black Mass” — with Depp returning as the ruthless Boston mobster. He had dropped out last summer over money issues.
The project is based on the book “Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob,” written by Boston Globe reporters Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill. Mark Mallouk penned the script.
Bulger, the head of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang, was captured in Santa Monica in 2011 after being on the lam for 16 years. Bulger fled authorities in Boston just before he was indicted in 1995 for federal racketeering. He was found guilty last year on 31 counts, covering 11 murders, and was sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus five years for his crimes.
The second trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has just been released online, and although Juno doesn’t feature in it, it still looks pretty amazing. Watch it in full:
Just a little update with some great stills of Juno from Maleficent – have you guys been to see the film yet?
As Juno Temple and I sit outside at Los Angeles’ Burbank studios to discuss her role in Disney’s Maleficent, a crow swoops down like a dark shadow over us and lands, menacingly, on our table, its black iridescent wings outstretched. In the Californian sunshine, this aerial assault is so timely, it’s as if the studio has engineered it for us. “It’s Maleficent!” Temple cries, her eyes widening in cartoon-style, “Like Angelina Jolie is present.”
The 24-year-old British actress stars as the young fairy Thistletwit, alongside a winged and horned Jolie, in the revisionist tale about the Mistress of All Evil from Disney’s original 1959 Sleeping Beauty. Whether you think the film, directed by special effects guru Robert Stromberg, is a triumph or something slightly short of that, the casting is spot on. Jolie is a dead ringer for the dark queen, even without visual enhancements; and the mental leap from Temple, tiny and ethereal in a dinky lilac vintage dress before me, to a bonkers, teenage pixie is small. She’s like a sprite in beaten-up biker boots; and she says she feels an affinity to fairies too. “I had this imaginary world where fairies were my friends. If you told six year-old Juno that she’d one day play a Disney fairy, she’d totally freak out,” she enthuses at an alarming speed, her Somerset-bred accent now submerged in thick, twangy Los Angelino (she has been a city resident since 2008). Her vocal pitch and perpetual sense of wonder could still be mistaken for a six-year old’s. “I still have one foot in that magical world. I never want to lose that.”
Yesterday was the world premiere for Juno’s Disney film Maleficent, and she hit the red carpet looking amazing in a suit! I’ve added 21 HQ pictures have been added to the gallery so far, with hopefully some more on the way.
Update: An additional 53 HQ pictures have now been added!

The first official clip from Maleficent has just been released online, and we get a quick glimpse of Juno as Thistletwit. Watch it in full below:
The feature adaptation of Joe Hill’s Horns made its festival debut at Toronto last year, and we know the U.S. rights were picked up not long after, but we’re still waiting for word on when we’ll see Daniel Radcliffe and his horns on the big screen. While there’s still no official word of that yet, stateside, the UK release for the film has been set for October 31, and word is, we might expect a similar timeframe for the U.S. release.
Nerdist caught the Tweet announcing the October 31 release date for Horns in the U.K., after which author Joe Hill followed up with his own Tweets on the subject of the U.S. release, indicating that we might expect it to arrive in theaters “roughly the same time”…
Directed by Alexandre Aja and based on Hill’s novel, the story centers on Radcliffe’s Ig Perrish, a guy who wakes up one day — a year after his girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple) was murdered — to find he’s sprouted a set of horns, which give him the power to cajole people’s darkest confessions and desires to him. He eventually seeks to use this dark gift to uncover the truth about Merrin’s death, which most people think he’s responsible for.
