Trailer for drama series Save Me starring Suranne Jones and Lennie James

Sky Atlanic has released a trailer for its upcoming drama series Save Me, which features a cast that includes Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster), Lennie James (The Walking Dead) and Stephen Graham (This is England), Jason Flemyng (Jamestown). Check it out below, along with the official synopsis…

The uniquely British drama introduces a unique and unlikely hero in Nelson ‘Nelly’ Rowe (Lennie James) – a man who ‘likes a drink’, who lives with whichever woman he happens to be sleeping with at the time – often more than one and sometimes more than two. He is the life and soul of his local boozer: a charmer, a chancer, a fighter, a liar and, at his age, a man who should know better.

Nelly’s world is turned upside down when he is arrested and accused of kidnapping the 13-year-old daughter he barely knew existed. Jody’s mother, Claire (Suranne Jones) who shared a

New trailer & poster for ‘Journey to China 3D’

Check out the first international trailer (in Russian no less, so it’s pretty to look at but whether you’ll understand anything remains to be seen, or rather heard…) and poster for director Oleg Stepchenko’s fantasy adventure Journey to China which features an eclectic cast, including: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng and Yuri Kolokolnikov.

The cartographer will unexpectedly face a lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters and even the king of all dragons – the Dragon King.

First poster and trailer for Journey to China starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan

The first international trailer and poster have arrived online for director Oleg Stepchenko’s rather bizarre looking fantasy adventure sequel Journey to China which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng, and Yuri Kolokolnikov; check them out below…

First Quick Teaser for Wacky 'Journey to China' with Schwarzenegger

This looks very weird. A very short teaser trailer has debuted online for a film titled Journey to China, for short, though it goes by many names. This film is actually Viy 2, a sequel to Viy (from 2014), also known as Forbidden Empire - a fantasy adventure movie set in a cursed Romanian forest. This sequel goes by other titles including: Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask, The Mystery of Dragon Seal: The Journey to China, or just simply Viy-2. The plot involves English traveler/cartographer Jonathan Green journeying to China and falling into a fantastical adventure. The film's peculiar cast features Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng, Yuri Kolokolnikov. Schwarzenegger is playing James Hook, but I don't even know what's going on. Maybe the full-length trailer will reveal more.

Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series

3 horror movies that could be considered 'impressive'

What Horror Movie Impressed You The Most (In Any Way)?

Movies, in general, are classified as being in "the top" based on how much money they make. By this standard, James Cameron's "Avatar" is the highest-grossing movie ever, with gross revenues in excess of $2.7 billion worldwide. But was it the best movie ever made?

Well, that's a completely different story - as revenue doesn't necessarily mean value. Thus, most list containing the top 5 horror movies of all time will contain films that were massively successful - think teen slashers like Scream or supernatural found-footage flicks like Paranormal Activity. But this also doesn't necessarily mean that they were the best horror movies ever made.

Instead of counting money, remakes, viewers, or sequels, let's take a look at horror movies from a different point of view: how impressive they were. How scary or pressing, how gross, how gruesome they were. And

Exclusive: On the set of Jason Flemyng’s ‘Eat Locals’

As far as vampire films go, audiences of the 21st century have a built-in expectation for the fanged creatures. We’ve now been subjected to Twilight, a multitude of meaningless Underworld sequels, and everything in between. What we didn’t expect when visiting the set of Jason Flemyng’s Eat Locals, was to be sitting in a cold Hertfordshire farm staring at severed body parts in jars.

This strange and unusual experience was a good way to set the tone for the film. Flemyng, full of positivity and enthusiasm, was, of course, making his directorial debut in the film. It was quickly apparent that he was keen to make a good impression for his upcoming horror feature, and he managed it effortlessly. The cockney gentleman’s friendly nature easily overshadowed his frantic and busy schedule that day.

Flemyng is one of the most recognizable faces in the British film industry.

One More Trailer for Alien Invasion Thriller 'Revolt' Starring Lee Pace

"The machines are hunting everyone down. Machines programmed to kill." Vertical Entertainment has unveiled a new official Us trailer for the sci-fi indie film titled Revolt, from director Joe Miale making his feature debut. The film stars Lee Pace as a Us soldier in Africa attempting to fight back against a brutal alien invasion. This kind of seems a bit like a mash-up between District 9 and Transformers, with robot-like alien creatures taking over. Also starring Bérénice Marlohe (who was also in the sci-fi Kill Switch, as well as Skyfall and Song to Song), plus Jason Flemyng, Alan Santini, and Tom Fairfoot. I'm actually very curious about this, might be pretty cool. I dig the machines' designs, different than most other alien designs. Here's the official Us trailer for Joe Miale's sci-fi Revolt, direct from YouTube (via Tmb): You can also still watch the first international trailer for Revolt here,

Interview: Angela Dixon

Action thriller Never Let Go is now available on demand so we sat down with actress Angela Dixon to discuss her role in the film.

How did you first get into acting?

It all began at a very young age. I had always wanted to be an actor growing up but I didn’t really think that it could be more than a dream. Then, at the age of 16, I played the part of Barbara Allen in ‘Dark of the Moon’ at college and it appeared that I had some talent. At that point it started to become a reality for me. I studied drama at college, University and finally I went to drama school. So all in all I studied drama and acting for 6 years. Although the real learning starts when you are actually on the job.

‘Eat Locals’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Charlie Cox, Billy Cook, Freema Agyeman, Robert Portal, Mackenzie Crook, Eve Myles, Vincent Regan, Tony Curran, Dexter Fletcher, Ruth Jones, Annette Crosbie | Written by Danny King | Directed by Jason Flemyng

The directorial debut of actor Jason Flemyng, this low budget British horror-comedy has a solid cast and a moderately intriguing premise, but it can’t quite decide whether it wants to go for scares or laughs and ends up falling awkwardly between the two.

Written by Danny King (Wild Bill), Eat Locals (originally Eat Local, with an ‘s’ being added in the marketing stage) centres on a coven of centuries-old vampires – including Daredevil’s Charlie Cox, Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman and One Foot in the Grave‘s Annette Crosbie – convening for their semi-centennial meeting at a remote country farmhouse. Also present is naïve orphan Sebastian (Billy Cook), who thinks he’s on a promise with vampish Vanessa (Eve Myles,

Eat Locals review – Jason Flemyng's bickering vampires feast on absurdity

The Lock, Stock actor makes his directorial debut with a charmingly no-budget horror-comedy that knows far better than to take itself seriously

I don’t like to get too particular about star ratings, but actor Jason Flemyng’s directorial debut Eat Locals is the kind of movie that lies right on the cusp between the two- and three-star astral plains. A larky, cheerfully trashy vampire romp, it was clearly made with a budget of next to nowt and a packet of crisps for the catering table. But it has the wisdom not to take itself seriously in the slightest, and there are moments when it rustles up a few properly amusing gags and well-turned one-liners.

It helps that the cast clearly enjoy sinking their prosthetic teeth into the silliness of playing a cadre of ancient, bickering undead having an away-day meeting at a remote farmhouse when a military unit tracks them to their lair.

'Eat Locals': Film Review | FrightFest 2017

'Eat Locals': Film Review | FrightFest 2017
A low-budget British vampire comedy with more bark than bite, Eat Locals feels like a school reunion project for survivors of Guy Ritchie’s early gangster films. The director is one-time Ritchie regular Jason Flemyng, the cast includes cameos from his former screen comrades Dexter Fletcher and Nick Moran, and the main fight sequence was guest-directed by breakout action star Jason Statham. But a much more obvious influence than Ritchie on this affectionate horror parody are the genre-spoofing comic-book antics of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, whose tongue-in-cheek signature style looms large enough here to invite some unflattering comparisons.

Poster and trailer for horror-comedy Eat Locals starring Charlie Cox

Ahead of its UK Premiere at this year’s FrightFest at The Prince Charles Cinema on 26th August, The Movie Partnership has released a poster and trailer for Jason Flemyng’s (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, X-Men: First Class) directorial debut, the horror comedy Eat Locals, which is described as “Assault On Precinct 13 meets Interview With A Vampire“.

In a quiet country farmhouse, Britain’s vampires gather. They come together once every 50 years to discuss territories, disputes, threats and food stocks, and the approval of new members. On this night, a new face will be meeting them for the first time, and – if the vote is unanimous – could be the latest member to join their fanged ranks.

This new face, however – local lad Sebastian Crockett – merely thinks he’s on a promise with sexy cougar Vanessa.

Unluckily for all, Sebastian’s not the only guest who’ll be dropping in tonight.

Film Review: ‘The Black Prince’

Film Review: ‘The Black Prince’
Queen Victoria once painted a charming watercolor of the young Maharajah Duleep Singh carefully adjusting a child’s turban on the head of her son Arthur. Victoria was no artist, but the sketch delights thanks to the intimacy between the two royals, one Indian, the other British, and speaks of the familial affection the Queen felt for the man whose throne in Punjab her government had confiscated. Unfortunately, where the illustration offers a window onto a relationship, the new biopic on Duleep, “The Black Prince,” provides no similarly insightful rewards.

Designed as a Quality (with a capital “Q”) production demonstrating the Maharajah’s gradual awakening to his Indian heritage after years in exile acting the British squire, director-writer Kavi Raz’s oh-so-simple take on a deeply contradictory character turns a fascinating historical figure into a sad and dully predictable footnote. Clunkily scripted and generically pretty in a Stately Home porn kind of way, the

George A Romero and the meaning of his zombies

Ryan Lambie Jul 18, 2017

As George A Romero sadly passes, we pay tribute to Night Of The Living Dead, and the meaning behind the writer-director's zombies...

In April 1968, director George A Romero threw some reels of film in the trunk of his car and took a long drive from Pittsburgh to New York. The grainy, black-and-white footage stored on those reels was little short of incendiary: then called Night Of The Flesh Eaters, Romero's film would, in time, change horror cinema forever.

Shot on a budget of just $114,000, Night Of The Living Dead (as it was later renamed) was aggressively lo-fi: its producer, Russell Streiner, also played one of the film's first victims - he gets the immortal line, "They're coming to get you, Barbara" before
