New Poster and Images for The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box

  • HeyUGuys
Due out in January next year, The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box boasts a stellar cast led by Aneurin Barnard, Michael Sheen, and Lena Headey.

The film was originally titled Mariah Mundi and the Curse of the Midas Box, and the new title and its colon would suggest that Image Entertainment could well be hoping for a franchise here.

With just a few more months to go before it hits cinemas, Yahoo Movies has launched the new poster, along with a handful of images.

17-year-old Mariah Mundi’s life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth – but also devastating supernatural power.

'The Bodyguard' review: 'A ridiculously fun night out'

'The Bodyguard' review: 'A ridiculously fun night out'
You know the story. One spoiled diva. A top-notch no-nonsense bodyguard. A wee kiddie at risk. A letter-writing psycho and jealous sister in the wings. The late Whitney Houston is as well-remembered for classic 1992 movie The Bodyguard and that Dolly Parton cover as she is for her string of chart toppers.

Opening last year, Alexander Dinelaris's adaptation has gone method in hiring a singer, rather than actress, in the lead role in this new cast. Whatever reservations you might have about her acting, you know you've got a safe set of vocal cords with Beverley Knight. Predictably, it's the singing that keeps The Bodyguard afloat whenever you might waver.

> Beverley Knight on The Bodyguard: 'It's not a Whitney Houston tribute'

An opening X Factor wall of stats and some mobile phones are the only updating the story gets, but to be honest that's all it needs. A man

'Atlantis' episode 4 review: Royal scandal, dark myth and baby wee

The myth of Oedipus is a rather dark tale for a family drama like Atlantis to tackle, so in 'Twist of Fate', said myth is fused with Three Men and a Baby for an adventure that's part royal scandal, part rollicking adventure and part 'wee-wee and poo-poo' slapstick.

We open with Jason (Jack Donnelly), Pythagoras (Robert Emms) and Hercules (Mark Addy) finding a cute infant abandoned in the woods and, once they take the child home and assume the role of surrogate parents, we're treated to all the standard gags you'd expect.

There's no magicians or monsters here - instead, our heroes must deal with the perils of baby poo, changing nappies, settling a child to sleep and being sprayed with adorable urine. Oh, and of course, there's fart jokes aplenty!

The hapless trio recruit the maternal Medusa to help out, with Hercules using their time spent babysitting

'Atlantis' episode 4: 10 teasers about 'Twist of Fate'

In its fourth week, Atlantis casts Jason (Jack Donnelly), Pythagoras (Robert Emms) and Hercules (Mark Addy) as surrogate parents - they may be figures of legend when it comes to slaying Minotaurs or vaulting slathering beasts, but when it comes to raising a child, they're more hapless than heroic...

The mysterious infant is discovered abandoned in the woods, but once the baby's identity is revealed, our lads are forced to go on the run. Can they deliver the boy to safety - and without placing their own lives in terrible peril?

DVD Review - Flying Blind (2012)

Flying Blind, 2012.

Directed by Katarzyna Klimkiewicz.

Starring Helen McCrory, Najib Oudghiri, Kenneth Cranham and Tristan Gemmill.

Synopsis:

When Frankie (a middle aged aerospace engineer working for the military) is seduced by Kahil, a young French-Algerian man, her employers start to get nervous. As the relationship heats up, Frankie must decide whether Kahil has ulterior motives or if her colleagues are suffering from post 9/11 paranoia.

If the slick BBC visuals of Katarzyna Klimkiewicz's first feature reminds you more of a highly produced TV show than your average blockbuster, then you'd be forgiven. Made for under half a million pounds, Flying Blind is the third film to be created through the iFeatures initiative – a company set up to “support micro/low budget filmmakers and forge a stronger, more confident on-screen identity for cities in the English regions.” In this case the region is Bristol, and while the city doesn't play a
