The world premiere of the full-length Jurassic World trailer is just days away! Over the weekend, Universal Pictures released a 20-second teaser to promote the summer blockbuster. The footage offered a first look at dinosaurs, the park, and co-stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the series, pays homage to the 1993 original. One of the most memorable scenes in Steven Spielberg's classic involved a stampede of Gallimimus dinosaurs, who sent Laura Dern and Sam Neill running for cover. The stampede of dinosaurs is back in Jurassic World, but this time, fear is no longer a factor. In fact, visitors safely ride alongside them in the park's new vehicles. To see more »
Like those generated by the distant, thundering footfalls of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, the ripples being made by early publicity for the fourth Jurassic Park film are growing in size. We have slowly progressed from still images being shared on social media, through tiny snippets, to this first official footage from Jurassic World – before the full trailer is finally revealed, on Thursday.
The journey of Jurassic World to the big screen has been a long and tortuous one – it having been in development for over ten years. A sizeable list of directors and writers have come and gone, while names reportedly under consideration for casting have included Keira Knightley, Jeremy Piven, Emmy Rossum, David Boreanaz, John Krasinski and Josh Brolin, in addition to the involvement of original stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough having been rumoured at various points. The lengthy process sadly saw the passing of »

It's an entirely new cast; only B.D. Wong (reprising his role as chief geneticist Dr Henry Wu), who was in the very first film, appears in this one as »

How you do make a movie about a super genius mathematician interesting? Put Benedict Cumberbatch in it. Hell, we'd listen to the actor's beautifully, bass-y voice read mattress tags, but thankfully he's being put to better use than that in "The Imitation Game." And a new trailer for the World War II set drama is here. Co-starring Keira Knightley and a bunch of familiar British faces (such as Charles Dance, Mark Strong, and Matthew Goode), the film tells the true story of Alan Turing, the man who cracked Germany's Enigma code during the Second World War, but found his personal life as a homosexual put under scrutiny, a pain doubled by the fact he was also sworn to secrecy about his groundbreaking wartime work. It's a powerful story, and opening in the U.K. today there's a good batch of promo material for the movie. The most significant is a 15-minute Google Talk, »

BBC's Peaky Blinders has just closed it's sophomore series (that's season for you American viewers) and not only was it a staggering boost in every way compared to it's debut, but after six jam-packed episodes, it's also one of the best overall in 2014. Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in 1919 Birmingham, England and centered on a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps, and their fierce boss Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy), who means to move up in the world. After a dramatic and shocking cliffhanger ending to series 1, Peaky Blinders picks up quite some time after we all assumed inspector Campbell (Sam Neill) had shot and killed Thomas Shelby's woman Grace. Now for the twist – we flash back to realize that Grace wound up with the jump on Campbell and that in fact »

To paraphrase Aunt Pol, you don't mess with the Peaky Blinders. Good news then, that they're returning for a third series...
"We can confirm that Peaky Blinders will return for a third series". So said the show's official Twitter account as the credits rolled on the Birmingham gangster drama's superlative series two finale. We're informed by the site's Midlands contingent that there's only one possible response to that news, and it's "that's bostin". Did we get that right?
Series two of Steven Knight's bloody period drama welcomed exciting new cast members Tom Hardy and Noah Taylor to an already exemplary group of actors including Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill and the terrific Helen McCrory. That, combined with the work of new director Colm McCarthy, elevated series two even higher than the first.
We can expect to see the Shelbys return to BBC Two next autumn. More news as it arrives. »
Allow me to introduce you to best TV show you've never heard of. About to finish its second season on British TV screens, Peaky Blinders has found its Us home on Netflix, and trust me when I say you need to add this Popsugar UK favorite to your watch list. On paper, Peaky Blinders shouldn't work, even in its home country. A story about working class gangs in Birmingham (not the one in Alabama) in the early 1900s doesn't seem like something with mass appeal. But by writing a killer script and pulling together a cast of internationally renowned talent (including Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, and Helen McCrory), writer Stephen Knight has created something very cool indeed. Peaky Blinders is everything the BBC does best when it comes to drama. It's smart, witty, gritty, and beautiful. Based on true stories of a gang who stitched razor blades into the peaks »
Knight has talked up plans for more episodes - so do you want to see a third series, and possibly more?
Digital Spy wants your thoughts on the period thriller's future and tonight's explosive finale.

Ingmar Bergman bowed down to his peer, Andrei Tarkovsky, for having given life to the language of cinema as dream: “Tarkovsky is for me the greatest, the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as reflection, life as a dream.” This praise from one master to another was more than warranted, for the two auteurs’ bodies of work are arguably the most distinguishable in the canon of film history for their use of moving imagery, intricate mise-en-scène, and meaning that arises not only once in the frame or from an actor’s mouth but that ripples throughout the remainder of the world of the movie. Hey now, this is what dreams are made of.
In the pond’s crystal clear reflection of our reality that is the cinema, there are also the murky patches. Both Bergman and Tarkovsky oftentimes forayed down »

The penultimate episode of Peaky Blinders series 2 races towards next week's finale with characteristic flair...
This review contains spoilers.
With the proper return of Grace, the collapse of the Peaky Blinders gang’s forays into London and pressure mounting on Tommy from Major Campbell, there is a lot to take in during this episode. From both a dramatic and technical viewpoint, Peaky Blinders just continues to race toward its impending finale with confidence, verve and tension.
The opening of the episode is a masterclass of direction and scripting. Frenetic, tense and tight, the opening scenes quickly unfold to show quite how much trouble the Shelbys have gotten themselves in to. Never have the consequences of Tommy’s relentless ambition been made more clear. It is a breathless sequence, jumping between events in London to Birmingham with style. The entire episode has lots of juggling work to do, with several plot threads running concurrently. »
Peaky Blinders series 2 goes from strength to strength, as do its cast's performances. Here's Tom's review of episode 4...
This review contains spoilers.
Another week, another storming episode of Peaky Blinders. The sophomore season hit the ground running, and with tension heightening and old faces making their return, the last two episodes promise to be tense.
You could tell it was coming. In the episodes running up to this, and certainly the last ten minutes, you could see that Grace’s return was imminent. Even before Annabelle Wallis’ fleeting appearance, the spectre of Grace continued to haunt Tommy, his horse named in reference to her betrayal. It was great to see the writers pull the trigger and bring her back with two episodes to go, and give her reappearance a chance to have some narrative breathing space.
Though now it definitely feels like Charlotte Riley’s character May Carleton has been »

This week sees Howard once again tackle the big stories from this week with his usual satirical methods. »
Peaky Blinders continues dishing out great performances, tantalising stories, and high production values. Here's Tom's review...
This review contains spoilers.
In the world of Peaky Blinders, it is increasingly likely that any close association with the Blinders gang will put you in jeopardy. And as the stakes and problems continue to rise for the Shelby family, so does the quality of the series.
The arrival of the Digbeth Kid in the opening scenes highlighted more than anything in the series the danger the Shelbys can bring upon you. Arriving on screen as a naïve lad looking to impress, he leaves as quickly as he arrived, his throat slashed in a dank prison cell during a graphic scene. The violence has taken a step up in this second series of Peaky Blinders, yet nothing has been more graphic than that. For a character we have just met, it is a tragic end, »
After Tommy's life-threatening beating, he sets his sights on taking control of the southern racecourses and gaining the favour of aristocrat May Carleton. However, danger lurks in the form of Major Campbell (Sam Neill) and Darby Sabini (Noah Taylor).

Deluxe Australia today launched the Deluxe Heartbeat Fund, which encompasses and extends the company.s industry support programs.
One of the key aims of the Heartbeat Fund is help filmmakers articulate a clear vision of their target audience at the outset, and execute accordingly.
.Australian films are facing specific challenges in cutting through to audiences,. Deluxe MD Alaric McAusland told If. .We want to work with filmmakers on features where they have a clear vision of audience engagement and that.s built in as an integral part of the budget at the start, not as an after-thought.
.The Australian film label is a disincentive for some audiences; our films used to be cool. We are at a tipping point..
McAusland said Deluxe intends to collaborate with industry guilds and other stakeholders to develop programs to engage Australian audiences.
He sees an obvious need for an aggregated site which will enable »
