Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing style vehicle revealedPermanent Link to ">

By Sam Ashurst Brilliantly, wonderfully, JJ Abrams is using the focus and excitement we all have for the next installment of the Star Wars saga as a force for good (or a Force For Change as he calls it) by creating videos from the set that help raise money for charity via some rather exciting prizes. Traditionally, JJ has held back information during the making-of period of his movies, so it’s really exciting he’s using these videos to offer glimpses of the set for fans, with the main purpose of supporting UNICEF. It’s basically the nicest Jedi mind...

By Sam Ashurst Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley feature in the first teaser trailer for The Imitation Game. Get your peepers on it below, and then scroll down for the official synopsis. Here’s the official synopsis: 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...

By Matt Risley We’ve long known that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is keen to take on a big role in the DC movie universe. Yet while rumours have long been circulating that he could play Lobo or Green Lantern, we’re pretty darn sure we’ve just nabbed the exclusive on who he’ll be playing. During a chat about all things Hercules (lots of amazing videos coming soon), we tried to nail down who he’s playing. Johnson reveals that he and DC are set to make a big announcement very soon (Comic-Con, anyone?), and that the character...

Jake Gyllenhaal looks a fright in creepy first teaser for Nightcrawler: watch nowPermanent Link to ">

By George Wales A new viral video has gone online to promote Nightcrawler, in which a gaunt and wild-eyed Jake Gyllenhaal makes a desperate plea for employment. The film will follow Gyllenhaal’s character, Louis Bloom, as he stumbles upon the murky world of freelance crime journalism, with this video serving to establish the mindset that takes him down such a road in the first place. It’s certainly an arresting first clip, with Gyllenhaal on supremely unnerving form as the twitchiest of prospective employees… Take a look at the new video, below… ...

By George Wales Guardians Of The Galaxy has released a great new clip online, in which Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord attempts to convince his teammates that he has a plan to thwart the evil Ronan. Unfortunately for him, nobody else seems too convinced that he knows what he’s doing, least of all the antagonistic Rocket Raccoon… The new clip shows off the film’s sense of humour in fine style, with Rocket, Drax and Groot all scoring big laughs along the way. Check it out, below… Quite aside from what is sure to be a visual spectacle, the script and the...

JoePermanent Link to ">

By Matt Glasby When, in the midst of David Gordon Green’s drama, Joe (Nicolas Cage) picks up a poisonous snake, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s a metaphor, but it did happen. After a post-Bad Lieutenant/Kick-Ass rough patch (Season Of The Witch, Stolen et al), Joe sees Cage, an Oscar-winning actor lest we forget, grasping the snake – a slippery, difficult, unlovable role – and more than proving his mettle. Could this Mud-minus-the-sunshine represent his very own McConaissance? Based on Larry Brown’s 1992 grit-lit novel and steeped in...

By Kevin Harley The time-honoured tale of youthful ambition screwed by success, big business and shitloads of drugs gets a full-blooded workout in Eddie Martin’s tragi-doc about Aussie skateboard kings Ben and Tas Pappas. The Melbourne brothers got a golden ticket when they hit America as teens, became ‘boarding heroes and partied like nuts. But the party died hard as coke and commerce gatecrashed. Martin turns a cautionary tale into rollercoaster material: with extraordinary home-video footage capturing the Pappas’ rise and fall with an immediacy...

By Kevin Harley “Why don’t you try to understand?” asks Rita Hayworth’s femme fatale of Orson Welles’ Irish sailor. The question resonates with anyone befuddled by the plot of Welles’ studio-hacked 1947 noir, but Welles’ dazzling direction more than makes up for any lack of viewer understanding. Welles was less interested in the tale of a drifter lured into trouble by Hayworth and her husband (Everett Sloane) than in classic noir staples: murder, voyeurism, male sexual anxiety. Whether that was due to his failing real-life marriage to...

The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To EdenPermanent Link to ">

By Curtis Woloschuk Seeking to establish a new Garden of Eden in the Galapogos Islands in 1929, a German physician and his mistress were thrust into a “strange, sinister drama” that involved a sexually adventurous baroness, lurid indiscretions and heinous foul play. Interweaving a collection of candid footage, photographs and journal entries (voiced by the likes of Cate Blanchett and Diane Kruger), this ambitious documentary illustrates paradise’s tendency to inspire corruption. However, its unhurried pace and inability to wring tension from the conflicting...

By Ken McIntyre Jô Shishido is gangster number three. The third best hitman in town. He’s got a plan to become number one, but he’s got to try and survive the aftermath of a botched job first. All hell breaks loose as our triggerman stays cool under hopeless odds. The plot of Seijun Suzuki’s 1967 glam-noir bruiser is loose at best and the film often swirls into surrealism. But Branded To Kill thrums along to an irresistible hard-bop beat, with effortlessly stylish black andwhite cinematography and set-pieces straight from a pulp fiction fever dream....

By Matt Looker Terry Gilliam’s latest dystopian vision riffs on the modern age of social media, targeting technoheads, iPod shufflers and emoticon tweeters. At times, it seems like an out-of-touch parent’s exasperation at trying to understand hashtags, but still presents us with a fully realised if baffling world of chemically enhanced visual jargon. A bald-bonced Christoph Waltz jitters as the angst-ridden Qohen Leth, a socially challenged genius who is put to work trying to prove that life is devoid of all meaning. Though that’s not an accusation...

By Kate Stables Here’s something startling about The LEGO Movie. You probably know already that the brick blockbuster entranced critics and audiences, raked in $461m globally, and conquered cynicism about toy-franchise films. But when you see it on Blu-ray, you will want to plunge your hands into the screen and start making stuff. The small-screen shocker is how tactile those 15m virtual LEGO bricks are up close. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Hollywood’s new kings of comedy, after sequel-satirising triumph 22 Jump Street) admit in the cast-packed...

By Simon Kinnear John Cassavetes’ second film as director marked a rare Hollywood engagement for the famously independent filmmaker. Long dismissed as a creative cul-de-sac, it’s also a fascinating ‘what if.’ As non-conformist jazz player Ghost (Bobby Darin) lets his idealism threaten his success, the film displays a similar tension between art and commerce, its B-movie material enlivened by a director experimenting with studio resources and his own embryonic style. The result is a melancholic affair that spills its emotions as loosely as the...

By Josh Winning “Anyone can cook,” says master chef Gusteau at the start of Pixar’s eighth feature. “But only the fearless can be great.” It’s a motto the studio live and breathe by in Ratatouille, easily the studio’s most delightfully odd offering to date. Sure, there’s a talking rat who wants to become a chef, but it’s really a grown-up ode to fine cuisine and dreaming large. Whizzy kitchen set-pieces, soufflé-light humour and one of Peter O’Toole’s last great roles as critic Anton Ego (whose flashback is a...

By Kevin Harley In the spirit of many great rock docs, Morgan Neville’s Oscar-winning account of the unsung backing singers to the stars gives the underdogs their due. Mostly African-American women from gospel backgrounds, the likes of Darlene Love and Merry Clayton elevated the music of the Stones, Stevie Wonder and others but rarely found their own fame. As Neville asks why, potent themes of racism, sexism and the gap between talent/success emerge. But the tone is celebratory: when the ageing singers reunite on an impromptu yet pitch-perfect singalong, their...

Primary antagonist Ronan the Accuser lines up alongside Nebula and Korath in the new posters, and mighty cool the three of them look, too! We particularly like Nebula’s look – who knew that a shaven head and purple bodysuit could look quite so badass? By our calculations, that means that Benicio del Toro’s character, The Collector, is the only key player yet to receive his own character poster. And...

Sure enough, it isn’t long before misfortune strikes in the form of a pair of violent home-invaders, with designs on innocent little Annabelle… Take a look at the new trailer, below… Pretty unnerving stuff then, although we stand...
