See the dark side of the music industry in trailer for ‘Kill Your Friends’

24 August 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ever thought what American Psycho would be like if Patrick Bateman worked in the music industry? Well there’s a good chance it would be something like Kill Your Friends, a new British comedy/thriller that had its first trailer released today. Directed by Owen Harris (episodes of Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Black Mirror) and based on the novel by John Niven (who also penned the screenplay), the film stars Nicholas Hoult, Ed Skrein, James Corden, Rosanna Arquette, and Craig Roberts. Here’s the synopsis:

An A&R man working at the height of the Britpop music craze goes to extremes in order to find his next hit.

Adding a bit of grit and thrill to a job that may not seem to possess those qualities on the surface, Kill Your Friends looks like quite a ride. Nicholas Hoult, a continuing rising star, is the lead of the film, »

Teaser Trailer for Dark Comedy 'Kill Your Friends' with Nicholas Hoult

24 August 2015 9:59 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"How far are you willing to go?" Are you ready for this? StudioCanal UK has debuted a teaser trailer for the dark comedy Kill Your Friends, starring Nicholas Hoult as an A&R man working at the height of the Britpop music craze. This looks like it gets a bit more darker and crazier than just an "A&R man" looking for a new hit group, almost like a British mash-up between American Psycho, Filth and Almost Famous. Aside from Hoult, the cast includes Ed Skrein, James Corden, Rosanna Arquette, Tom Riley, Georgia King and Craig Roberts. It's just a tease, though I'm certainly intrigued after that glimpse. Take a look! Here's the first teaser trailer for Owen Harris' Kill Your Friends, on YouTube (via The Film Stage): Based on John Niven's best-selling novel, and starring Nicholas Hoult as you’ve never seen him before, Kill Your Friends »

When car shows collide: Chris Evans v Jeremy Clarkson

25 June 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The motormouth DJ is taking over Top Gear. Its former star is firing up a new programme. But can either beat David Cronenberg’s Crash for powerful social comment?

Right off the bat, let’s just concede that Top Gear is now our primary national barometer. If it is in crisis, Britain is in crisis. For reasons that may never be fathomed, the motoring show joins the health of Marks & Spencer sales and the porosity of Manchester United’s back four as key indicators of Where We Are At as a country.

Maddeningly, some people still haven’t got the memo. Interviewing Tony Hall on his programme last Sunday, Andrew Marr completely let the BBC director general off the hook, questioning him for what felt like a mere 37 minutes on the matter of Top Gear. Disappointing, Marr: I accept you asked 98.7% of all possible questions relating to the programme in its past and future incarnations, »

80s Fashion On Film

13 May 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The bright, brilliant fashion of the 1980s has often been captured on film – the over-the-top nature of the clothes lends itself beautifully to cinema, with some of the most iconic outfits of all time captured in this era. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Most Violent Year, in which Jessica Chastain showcases an incredible array of 1980s-era Armani, we take a look at other films which demonstrate the fashion of the decade.

Submarine (2010)

Richard Ayoade’s comedy drama stars Craig Roberts as 15 year-old Oliver Tate, who has two major ambitions – to lose his virginity to the beautiful Jordana (Yamin Paige), and to save his parents’ rocky relationship (a task made all the more difficult when his mother’s ex-lover reappears in their lives). Costume designer Charlotte Walters does a brilliant job of capturing the wonderfully quirky take on the classic coming-of-age tale, dressing the young cast in a wonderful array of duffle coats, »
