By Sam Ashurst We’ve been excited about 20,000 Days On Earth - the rock doc following icon of cool Nick Cave as he makes music, performs for his fans, and hangs out with Kyle Minogue – for ages now. Luckily, it’s not long until you can see the film we called ‘a properly artful portrait of an artist in total command of his myth’ in cinemas – 20,000 Days On Earth is out Friday. To keep you going until then, we’ve got our hands on a world exclusive clip, featuring Cave singing Lionel Richie’s cheese classic All Night Long...

By George Wales Avengers: Age Of Ultron has released an official synopsis, unveiling in detail some of the finer plot points of the forthcoming sequel. As well as establishing the general premise, the new synopsis confirms Paul Bettany’s transformation into the Vision, while also stressing the high-stakes nature of Ultron’s fiendish plan… “When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program,” reads the blurb, “things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow...

Sony remaking I Know What You Did Last SummerPermanent Link to ">

By George Wales Sony is set to plunder the ‘90s for its next horror remake, with the studio set to breathe new life into slasher caper I Know What You Did Last Summer. Written by Scream scribe Kevin Williamson, the original was part of the late-‘90s boom in teen slasher movies, bringing in $125 million at the box office and spawning a suitably half-baked sequel. The story focuses on a group of teens who find themselves stalked by the hook-wielding figure they hit with a car and left for dead during a drunken night out. According to the report, Oculus director Mike...

By George Wales Well, well, well… huge news to bring you this morning, as Deadline is reporting that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are both set to return for a fifth Bourne film. Both Damon and Greengrass have attempted to cool speculation concerning a reunion over the last few years, suggesting that the story has run its course, and that there is nowhere left to take the character. Well, that all seems to have changed, with THR claiming that Greengrass is also in the frame to write the script, should a deal go through as expected. Universal are also so keen to...

By George Wales David Fincher has been discussing why he chose to cast Ben Affleck in Gone Girl, and explains that the actor’s tabloid travails gave him the perfect experience for the role. “I enjoyed working with him immensely,” says Fincher. “The baggage he comes with is most useful to this movie. I was interested in him primarily because I needed someone who understood the stakes of the kind of public scrutiny that Nick is subjected to and the absurdity of trying to resist public opinion.” “Ben knows that, not conceptually, but by experience.

By George Wales The first trailer has arrived online for long-awaited period drama, Serena, in which Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star as a pair of newlyweds building a timber empire in 1920s North Carolina. The new film charts the couple’s whirlwind romance and marriage, before following them on their attempts to find their fortune through the booming timber industry. However, things aren’t all that straightforward, as the government starts muscling in on their newly-acquired land, and Lawrence discovers that Cooper has been hiding an illegitimate...

By Rob James For his 44th film as director, Woody Allen revisits a pet theme: a man mooning over a woman decades his junior. That man is Stanley Crawford, a London magician who performs in yellowface as ‘Wei Ling-soo’, a purported mystic from the Orient. Well-versed in the art of deception, he’s soon whisked off to the French Riviera on a special mission: to expose a supposed American spiritualist as a charlatan. But meeting Sophie Baker (Emma Stone), Stanley is instantly enchanted. And given that the milksop (Hamish Linklater) currently courting her...

By James Mottram Whatever you think of Eugenio Mira’s thriller, it has a pretty solid pitch: Phone Booth, with a piano. Joel Schumacher’s high-concept effort saw Colin Farrell trapped in a public booth, with a sniper torturing him from afar. This time, it’s Elijah Wood in the hot seat as concert pianist Tom Selznick, who returns to the limelight some five years after he cracked on stage whilst trying to play the notoriously difficult piece ‘La Cinquette’. Playing in Chicago, Tom’s comeback performance is soon looking like it might be...

By James Mottram Ten years after Garden State, Zach Braff delivers his second film as writer/director/star. He plays Aidan, an aspiring actor sent into a tailspin when his father (Mandy Patinkin) contracts cancer. Lacking – perhaps deliberately – its predecessor’s hipster edge, WIWH functions as a grown-up weepie, following Aidan on a journey of enlightenment. Penned by Braff and brother Adam, there’s an unevenness to the script – one subplot seems to exist solely to give Kate Hudson (Aidan’s wife) something to do – but there are genuinely...

By Ken McIntyre Imagine The Hangover scrubbed clean of any salacious bits. That’s this film. As the ‘Too’ would imply, it’s a sequel to the 2012 hit Think Like A Man, a manic romcom based on a self-help book aimed at women with relationship woes. In this one, the ping-ponging couples from the first film, led by motormouth Kevin Hart, descend on Vegas for the wedding of mama’s boy Michael (Terrence J) and worldly-wise single mum Candace (Regina Hall). Not surprisingly, gags about gambling and strippers ensue. Also not surprisingly, the...

By Kevin Harley A rock one-off gets suitably singular treatment in Brit artists Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s rich, wry, sumptuously styled study of Nick Cave. We see Cave recording, in therapy, joshing with bandmate Warren Ellis, giving Kylie Minogue a lift… Most rock-docs would present this material as “the real Cave”, but Forsyth/Pollard diss genre clichés and adopt a semi-staged ‘day in the life’ pitch to show how Cave truly is larger than life. Cave’s wittily hard-boiled voiceover and on-stage potency complete the picture: a...

By James Mottram Jason Voorhees. Freddie Krueger. Mick Taylor? Maybe the name doesn’t quite hit like those other horror icons, but John Jarratt’s portrayal of the Outback psycho in Greg McLean’s 2005 original was just as memorable. This McLean-directed sequel is effectively a re-tread, only with German tourists and much more gore. There’s a switcheroo halfway that may throw you, when Ryan Corr’s luckless Brit gets involved, but the finale – a game of 20 questions and a trip to Mick’s lair – is enough to give anyone the willies....

Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst impress as the married couple taken in by Oscar Isaac’s charming American tour guide in Greece, only to then fight back with some devious plotting of their own.

By Kevin Harley As Mickey Rourke proved in The Wrestler, great comebacks demand career risks. Arnold Schwarzenegger rocks a new look but doesn’t act well enough to lose his baggage in David Ayer’s chafing hybrid of muscle-man nostalgia and modern indie grit, where elite DEA agents are targeted after scalping $10m in a drug bust. Ayer complicates things with choppy camerawork, salty banter, extreme torture and moral murk, but the testosterone whiff weighs heavy, right up to a daft twist clumsily steered towards indulging brand Arnie. There will be...
