We all have favourite directors, producers or writers of film. We’re all familiar with the works of Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick or Alfred Hitchcock. We’re fans of Quentin Tarantino and James Cameron, and can name the works of Tim Burton and Ridley Scott. We know of Jerry Bruckheimer or Peter Jackson, M Night Shyamalan and Guillermo del Toro. In short, we all recognise the big names who give us films. But one name which may not sound so familiar, is that of Luc Besson.
Luc Besson is a director, producer and writer of film. He was born in 1959, in the French city of Paris to scuba-diving parents, and grew up in the Mediterranean, travelling off the coasts of Italy, Greece and Yugoslavia . He did not initially want to become involved with cinema, intending instead to become a marine biologist. But at the age of 17, he »

We may not have seen a single frame from X-Men: Days of Future Past yet, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t already get excited for its sequel. Bryan Singer has taken to Twitter to announce the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse, coming in 2016.
Exhibitor Relations then followed Singer’s tweet up by confirming its release date from Fox, which is set for May 27th, 2016.
That currently puts it in direct competition with Disney and James Bobin’s Alice in Wonderland sequel, tentatively titled Alice in Wonderland: Into the Looking Glass. Tim Burton’s 2010 original took more than a billion dollars around the globe, and it would be incredibly interesting if these two blockbuster titans do end up fighting it out on their opening weekends.
Beyond the title, everything else remains speculation, and no doubt a lot of it will remain so at least until Days of Future Past has been released, »

The release of Cinema Paradiso was the point at which foreign-language film developed a new sheen for global audiences – complete with heartwarming stories and a hint of the exotic
• Cinema Paradiso: watch the trailer for the 25th anniversary edition
From the start, Cinema Paradiso carries itself like one of the classics its adorable scamp gazes at, open-mouthed, from the projection room. It has an adorable scamp, for starters – and plenty besides: the timeless Sicilian locations, the Felliniesque social carnival, the thunderbolt love affair, humanism lashed about as freely as olive oil. Giuseppe Tornatore's film is a cosy passeggiata down a celluloid Möbius strip looping art into life. When it arrived in the Us in February 1990 – all gilded sequences and grand themes – it seemed like the distillation of the idea of classic foreign cinema.

The Flash makes his debut on CW’s “Arrow” in the Dec. 4 episode, and don’t worry, because if you blink, you won’t miss him. That’s because the fleet-footed hero actually won’t have any powers – yet – as he’s introduced in the first of a two-part appearance on the show, in advance of what will, if all goes according to plan, turn into a regular-series gig next season.
In the good-news dept., Grant Gustin, perhaps best known for a recurring stint on “Glee,” seems like a savvy choice to play this youth-ified version of the DC Comics character, which not only dovetails with the CW’s overall profile but with the animated version of the Flash, who, as part of the Justice League, has occupied the role of youngish smartass.
Still, there’s something mildly ironic about the Flash – one of DC’s better-known second-tier players – potentially »

This is starting to get ridiculous. The summer of 2015 was already gearing up to be the most crowded summer for cinema in recent memory, but major studios just keep adding more films to the pile. Bourne 5, a currently untitled sequel to last year’s The Bourne Legacy as well as a second spin-off from the successful Bourne trilogy, has been scheduled by Universal Pictures to debut on August 14th, 2015.
The upcoming film, officially identified by Universal as Untitled Next ‘Bourne’ Chapter, will continue the story of Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), a super-soldier in the top-secret Operation Outcome (a sister program to Bourne’s Operation Treadstone) who goes on the run after the CIA honchos responsible for his training order him killed. In The Bourne Legacy, he rescued comely doctor Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz), also marked for assassination, and barely survived various attempts on his life, sailing off into the sunset on a Philippines junk ship. »

Female villains in the movies can usually be placed into two categories; the mentally deranged psychopath and the provocative seductress. This isn’t always the case of course, but it’s a fairly accurate basis to draw on. In honour of the nasty and glamorous sorceress Mizuki in 47 Ronin – the samurai epic out this December starring Keanu Reeves – we’ve reminisced on our favourite on-screen feminine scoundrels in cinema history. Mizuki has a tendency to turn into a dragon and go on rants about corpses and rivers of blood. In this list she joins the conniving, the insane, the alluring and the devilishly sexy. They’re all here, and we just love to hate them.

Morally dubious on the largest possible scale, this shape-shifting witch in upcoming action-fantasy epic 47 Ronin has the ability to »

A little while ago, we looked at both the best superhero costumes in movies and the worst. A lot of you agreed with our choices, but equally as many took issue with them! Well, in the interest of fairness, we’ve now decided to select the worst villain costumes that comic book movies have had to offer, and we would love to once again hear your thoughts in the comment section below. So, in no particular order (because it’s literally impossible to rank costumes which are this bad), here are our top ten choices for the worst supervillain costumes ever to plague the genre.
10. Two-Face (Batman Forever)
In fairness, Two-Face is an incredibly difficult villain to effectively portray in a live-action setting. Not only is half of his face scarred, but he also wears a suit which is different on one side to the other; however you look at it, »

Since the advent of the DVD and special features, deleted scenes have become common knowledge to even the most casual moviegoer and television watcher. They are almost as essential a characteristic of the audience experience as the bits that actually make it into the finished production.
Every once in a while, a line will appear in a movie or TV show that doesn’t quite add up. In other words, there’s a reference to something that doesn’t appear at all in the rest of the movie or show you’re watching.
Often that can just be put down to bad writing, or empty-headed characterisation. But occasionally, it comes down to an editorial decision, when someone axed the scene the character was referring to, but then neglected to clean up the waves created elsewhere in the script.
It seems hard to believe that after spending millions of dollars on »

When it was released twenty years ago, The Nightmare Before Christmas was not an immediate success. However, over the following two decades, it has become one of the most beloved holiday movies, and composer Danny Elfman admits that autograph seekers inevitably have The Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise for him to sign above all other films he has worked on. When the 15th Anniversary 2-Disc Collector’s Edition DVD was released in 2008, Elfman joined in with producer Tim Burton and director Henry Selick to record a commentary track. This track, along with many of the other bonus features, is also included on the 3D Blu-ray, which was released in 2011 (and likely all other annual releases as Disney moves forward). Seeing as we’re at the half-way point between Halloween and Christmas, and since it is the 20th anniversary of the film’s release, it seemed appropriate to revisit the film and hear what the filmmakers had to say »

Three films (and a mere two years) into her career as an actress, Scottish newcomer Sophie Kennedy Clark has already worked with Tim Burton, Stephen Frears and most recently, Lars von Trier. How did she manage that feat? Well, according to Clark, who sat down with Indiewire in New York in support of her turn in Frears' potential Oscar-contender "Philomena" (it opened last week and expands today), it's simply due to the fact that she just goes with the flow. "If you're prepared to give yourself over to a situation, directors will respond to it," she said. "I will commit to something at an almost embarrassing level. I have very little shame." Nowhere is that more evident that in her character poster for von Trier's "Nymphomaniac," in which Clark mocks a no holds barred orgasm for the camera. (For more on the shooting of the poster go here). She employed »

The holiday shopping season officially kicks off tonight and we know it can be difficult to find presents for horror fans that seem to have everything. To help make things easier, we’ve put together the initial list of our holiday gift suggestions, which include cannibal wine, classic horror shirts, vinyl figures and Blu-ray collections.
While a handful of these items are only available at select websites, you should be able to find some pretty good sales on other items starting tonight. Specifically, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart will have big sales on Blu-ray/DVD titles and video games. We’d like to give Tamika Jones a big thanks for helping put this guide together.

Terry Gilliam once told a story of how he dealt with animator’s block while working on the first series of Monty Python, and how his refuge was the National Gallery. There the painting would leap out at him, talk to him, throw their own ideas from the walls right at him. These trips to the galleries inspired the graphical nonsense which peppered the Pythons’ sketches, including a certain Bronzino foot which would become a very famous appendage.
In the first in a series of videos filmed by Tate Britain director Christopher Nolan discusses his own relationship with the art world and in particular with the works of Francis Bacon and their influence on one of the main grotesques in his Dark Knight Trilogy.

As Disney's Saving Mr Banks arrives in UK cinemas, James explains why calculatedly sentimental films aren't necessarily a bad thing...
Saving Mr. Banks is a film about the making of the 1964 Disney movie Mary Poppins. Chiefly, it's about the clash between the exceptionally difficult P.L. Travers (author of the original Mary Poppins books) and Walt Disney and his House of Mouse colleagues. It's a fascinating and wonderful film, and it's fascinating and wonderful for many reasons.
John Lee Hancock's biopic has a lot going for it - excellent acting performances, a witty script and superb production design are just a few commendable features that immediately jump out as I reflect on the film. Repeat viewings will undoubtedly bring its various rich nuances to the fore and, as a multi-faceted wide-appeal movie with several layers, it's likely to touch different viewers in different ways. »

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2000, and another 25 overlooked gems...
The new millennium brought with it an eclectic range of hit films. Hong Kong action director John Woo brought us Mission: Impossible II, the most profitable film of the year at the box office. Ridley Scott enjoyed one of the biggest critical and financial successes of his career with Gladiator, while Robert Zemeckis created a memorable drama with Tom Hanks and a ball named Wilson in Cast Away.
From a comic book movie standpoint, 2000 was also a key year. X-Men not only established a successful film franchise which is still going, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past out next year, but also headed up a wave of big-budget Marvel adaptations which shows no sign of slowing down.
As ever, we've travelled far outside the »
With more and more of our renowned British luvvies making the large leap across the pond to discover stardom in American film and television, it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish between who’s a Brit and who’s a Yank. Hugh Laurie’s American twang as temperamental Gregory House (M.D.) was so darn convincing that he even managed to fool the show’s own producers that he was American, after all.
But for every successful bilingual tale, there are those who don’t quite manage to master the correct inflections, and before you know it, we suddenly have a top 6 list of British actors wielding awful American accents…
This fantasy-drama from wacky old Tim Burton is actually a really decent and lovingly crafted film, with attractive visuals and an engaging and poignant story based around a fractured father/son relationship. McGregor plays the younger version »
