‘The Troop #5′ Review

29 April 2016 6:09 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp

Ah, my favourite dysfunctional family book. Try as I might, I cannot find a better description for this book than X-Men/Fantastic Four on steroids. There’s also more than a passing nod to the self destructiveness of the old Doom Patrol. These are deeply flawed people, but people who ultimately want to do the right thing. That altruism is something that, although admirable, is also something that can be twisted, taken advantage of. The team’s benefactor, Mr. Edwards, has shown us he is a talented manipulator, though up to now it seems to have all been for good reasons. As the team grows, as individual members gain confidence in both their abilities and their place, dynamics may start to shift and any hidden agendas may come to light. Noel Clarke has created a »

New “Doctor Who” companion to be revealed during Match of the Day

22 April 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The BBC have announced that the identity of the newest Companion for the record-breaking science fiction series Doctor Who will be announced Saturday, April 23rd, live on BBC One’s Match of the Day. During half-time of the Fa Cup semi-final between Everton and Manchester United, the BBC will announce the name of the new actor to join Peter Capaldi on the Tardis.

With the return of the series in 2005, each new face to join the series has been met with an increasing sense of occasion.  Peter Capaldi’s announcement, for example, was announced in a global simulcast. Each castmember has been shrouded in secrecy previous to their introduction.  When Karen Gillan was auditioning for her role, she was told to use the code name “Panic Moon”, an anagram of “Companion”. Jenna Coleman had to tell people she was auditioning for “Men on Waves”, an anagram for “Woman Seven”.

Noel Clarke highlights independent film challenge

20 April 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Kidulthood director Noel Clarke, who has spoken to cinemas about a ‘British Film Friday’, will discuss the UK film sector at the forthcoming Media Production Show in June.

BAFTA-winning actor-director Noel Clarke (Kidulthood, Adulthood) has highlighted growing distribution challenges for independent films.

Speaking to Screen, Clarke, who has run UK production outfit Unstoppable Entertainment for nine years, said that over the last decade “it has become harder to find distribution, particularly to get seen in cinemas”.

The Star Trek Into Darkness actor also added that from a production viewpoint “it has become a lot harder to get things over the line” and that there is now “more of an emphasis to make films more commercial”, saying “you have to have the faces” to get backing.

To help a UK indie film get seen, particularly in cinemas, Clarke suggested that a bespoke promotion could be run to support independent films in the vein of 2-for-1 cinema ticket initiative »

Watch 30-Minute Documentary on the Making of 'Kidulthood' Ahead of 'Brotherhood's' Release

5 April 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Noel Clarke, the British multihyphenate, is returning to the film franchise that I'd say most (especially on this side of the pond) know him for, to complete what is in essence a trilogy of films that begun with "Kidulthood" in 2006, followed by "Adulthood" in 2008, and will apparently now end with "Brotherhood," which Clarke's Unstoppable Entertainment has released a first trailer for. Details on plot and cast are being kept underwraps for now, but Clarke is directing from a script he wrote, and also stars in the film which is being produced via his Unstoppable Entertainment and Maggie Monteith’s Carpalla Films.

‘The Troop #4′ Review (Titan Comics)

18 March 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp

Along with Johnny Red, The Troop has consistently been at the top of my list to read whenever a new issue appears. Both books have been of an as high, if not even higher, quality as Marvel and DC, and should be getting more exposure and recognition. The Troop has by far been the biggest surprise, as scripter Noel Clarke knew his way around a screenplay but had never written comics before. His top quality storytelling, pacing and characterisation came as something of a surprise, but a very pleasant one. The best way I could describe this is as a mature readers X-Men/ Fantastic Four hybrid, and with the huge success of Deadpool at the cinema don’t be surprised if movie studios looking for mature readers comic book properties option The Troop for a future movie. »

The Other Side of the Door review – ghost thriller hinges on slow-burn scares

3 March 2016 3:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This supernatural tale about a grieving mother mixes high-tension moments with patient characterisation to form a clever, capable chiller

Shades of Don’t Look Now and the Orpheus myth in this not-half-bad supernatural chiller from British co-writer and director Johannes Roberts, who gave us F, a horror-thriller about a schoolteacher under threat; he also directed Noel Clarke’s script for Storage 24. The Other Side of the Door is about Maria (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Michael (Jeremy Sisto), a married American couple in Mumbai. When one of their children is killed in a car accident they are devastated, but their sorrowing housekeeper, Piki (Suchitra Pillai), tells the mother there is a way for her to get closure: if she goes to a certain ruined temple on a certain moonlit night, she will be able to talk with her son’s ghost through the locked door before he vanishes for ever into the next world. »

Glasgow Frightfest: ‘The Other Side of the Door’ Review

28 February 2016 4:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sarah Wayne Callies, Jeremy Sisto, Sofia Rosinsky, Suchitra Pillai, Jax Malcolm, Javier Botet, Logan Creran | Written by Johannes Roberts, Ernest Riera | Directed by Johannes Roberts

Dammit Johannes Roberts, why did you have to disappoint so? I absolutely Adore his 2010 film F (aka The Expelled) and – even though its a Noel Clarke film - Storage 24 wasn’t that bad either. So hearing that Roberts had the chance to helm a studio movie, a horror at that, set in India with its vast religious culture and strange chaotic lifestyle, And produced by Alexandre Aja… It’s safe to say I was excited for The Other Side of the Door. Even more so after Sarah Wayne Callies was cast in the lead – I’m a huge fan of hers, ever since the Prison Break days. So what went wrong?

‘The Troop #3′ Review

11 February 2016 5:27 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp

Conflict. If there is one thing a writer must both introduce and maintain to make for good drama, it’s conflict. A lot of other stuff, like character building, romance, action etc are also welcome, but without conflict you have no hook, nothing to set the drama the reader wants. Where Noel Clarke has excelled up to and including this issue is in introducing and maintaining that conflict, be it conflict with outside threats or conflict within the pseudo family/ team. Noel Clarke has so far delivered well above expectations with this book, and I’ve been enjoying the ride.

So far we have seen a mysterious benefactor, Edward, saving super powered individuals from some secret military group. So far these individuals, Terrain, Hotshot, and Virus have trusted him but that trust has reached its limit. »

‘The Troop #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

22 January 2016 7:31 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp

The first issue of The Troop was not only a pleasant surprise, but far exceeded my expectations. Written by a novice ‘celebrity’ writer, Noel Clarke, I expected a middle of the road generic something or other. What we did get was a violent, pacy adventure that had all the hallmarks of a popcorn movie, superheroes for grown-ups. A perfect first issue, in that it established the characters and their world alongside setting up a great storyline but leaving just enough to come to make you really look forward to the next issue. The second issue of course is often where a reader decides if he will stick with a book or not, so perhaps even more critical to a title’s success is how it performs a month later.

To briefly recap, the first issue saw us meet Terrain, »

Filming sex scenes: 13 directors and their approaches

Film directors and their crew discuss the techniques and approaches to capturing fruitiness on the big (and small) screen...

John Badham has written a couple of excellent books where he passed on advice about directing movies, and the lessons he's learned across his own career. In the latest, John Badham On Directing, he raises the spectre of filming sex scenes, and the problems that ensue.

Actors get really spooked when it comes to intimacy in a scene, even kissing", he wrote. "This is where the director has to be extremely patient with the actors and know that the emotional or intimate part of scenes don’t always shoot as easily as the production department thinks they should. The actors are not robots on a Toyota assembly line".

But just how do different filmmakers approach putting intimacy on film? In lots of different ways, is the answer...

Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…

While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.

2016 looks to be a particularly strong year for UK crime drama, with Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, Adam Smith’s Trespass Against Us and Michael Apted’s Unlocked on their way. Military thrillers are also well represented this year, with Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle, and Simon West’s Stratton incoming. There’s also comedy, fantasy, drama, horror and even a musical waiting for you below.
