Christopher Nolan's reps have denied that he bans chairs from his movie sets, after Anne Hathaway let slip the director requires his cast and crew to be working at all times.
Just like last year, 2018 has seen a lot of movie-star transformations, with more and more thespians allowing themselves to spend hours in the prosthetic chair to receive massive makeovers in the hope of an Oscar nomination (we’re sure Gary Oldman getting one for his unrecognisable turn as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour didn’t help).Click through the gallery for our picks for the most shocking actor transformations of 2018.Read more15 biggest movie transformations of 2017The actors who went unrecognisable in 2016Hollywood’s most notable deaths of 2018

Between Jon Favreau’s ‘Jungle Book’ and Steven Spielberg’s 'The BFG’, it’s looking like a vintage year for classic literature on the big screen.
