Spot the difference! New Dad's Army photo recreates famous TV show still

1 September 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A new photo from the set of the upcoming Dad's Army film has been released, and it may ring a few bells.

Posing for the snap just like their sitcom forebears, the new cast do their very best versions of Walmington-on-Sea's finest.

Here below are the original team, on the BBC set - not as flashy, perhaps, but still the best.

Playing the pompous Captain Mainwaring, Toby Jones previously spoke to Digital Spy about his worries taking on the project.

"It was fun," he explained. "It was really nerve-wracking. It was one of those jobs where you go, 'No, that's a terrible idea, I don't want anything to do with that, thank you very much'."

However, Jones added: "They sent [Hamish McColl's] script - it was really good. I thought it balanced honouring the old by putting them in a new situation.

"And when I saw who else was cast in it, »

[Media] - "Alice Through The Looking Glass" Disney reveals two posters

15 August 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | www.ohmygore.com/ | See recent OhMyGore news »

Disney is giving us our first glimpse at Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska in "Alice Through The Looking Glass" via two appropriately whimsical teaser posters. "Alice Through The Looking" Glass revisits Lewis Carroll's beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland – and back in Time. Wasikowska told about the sequel in a recent interview : We had a lot more sets on this one so that was really fun to have more interactive sets. The first ‘Alice' was 90% green screen so it was quite fun to be part of a world. Directed by James Bobin from a script by Linda Woolverton, the May 27, 2016 release also stars Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Rhys Ifans, Matt Lucas, Sacha Baron Cohen, Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, Alan Rickman, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, »

First posters of Alice Through The Looking Glass

15 August 2015 1:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alice In Wonderland made over a billion dollars for Disney, despite being heartless, awful, synthetic, and based around a needless prophecy storyline. So a sequel, Alice Through The Looking Glass, was inevitable, and although Tim Burton won’t be returning, the role of director has fallen to British director James Bobin, known for Muppets Most Wanted and his work with Ali G.

Almost the entire original cast, both live-action and animated voice artists, return, so we’ll certainly be rewarded with some form of consistency. However, we can only hope that the story has a little more substance to chew on. As the original was more of a sequel to the original tale, there’s no way of telling what the story will be. But with the return of Helena Bonham Carter‘s Red Queen, perhaps revenge is on the cards.

Alice Through The Looking Glass is released on May 27th 2016. It stars Johnny Depp, »

Dad's Army film - first trailer reports for duty

13 August 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Don’t panic! The new adaptation of the 1970s sitcom that stars Bill Nighy, Toby Jones and Catherine Zeta Jones might not be completely terrible

Big-screen transfers for much-loved television sitcoms tend to follow something of a hit and miss pattern: for every Inbetweeners Movie there’s a League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse, and for every Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa there’s a Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie. And so it is with trepidation that we peer tentatively at the debut trailer for Dad’s Army, the second attempt to translate Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s adored 1970s show for the cinema (following the 1971 UK box office smash), in the potentially vain hope that it will enhance, rather than ruin fond memories of the original.

Watch: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy & Catherine Zeta-Jones Get Wacky In Trailer For 'Dad's Army'

13 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There is a certain strand of British comedy that is quite broad and buffoonish and that may weigh on how well the first trailer for "Dad's Army" plays for you. It's based on a Brit comedy of the same name that ran from the late '60s to late '70s, and the first trailer has arrived for the big screen version that, well, maybe your Dad might dig. Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta Jones, Toby Jones, Daniel Mays, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson and Tom Courtenay star in the Oliver Parker ("Johnny English Reborn") directed comedy flick set on the tail end of WWII that follows a contingent of the Home Guard who have to track down a spy. Here's the official synopsis:  It is 1944 and World War II is reaching its climax. The Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. But in Walmington-on-Sea morale amongst the Home Guard is low. »

Are you excited by the new Dad's Army trailer? Vote in our poll and have your say

13 August 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

After first being teased way back in 2012, a Dad's Army movie was confirmed last year and has a star-studded cast including Catherine Zeta Jones, Bill Nighy and The Inbetweeners' Blake Harrison.

The first pictures looked promising, and a release date was confirmed for February 2016.

"It was one of those jobs where you go, 'No, that's a terrible idea, I don't want anything to do with that, thank you very much'," Toby Jones admitted to us in April about playing Captain Mainwaring - before being swayed by the quality of Hamish McColl's script.

A poster released earlier this week urges us not to panic in true Dad's Army style - but now a full trailer has been unveiled, we've got a much better idea of what to expect from the film.

Don’t Panic! The Dad’s Army trailer is here

13 August 2015 12:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m not sure how well the upcoming Dad’s Army movie will fare anywhere other than the UK, but the TV show on which it is based is absolutely loved here, and judging by the first teaser trailer for the film, which has just been released, we’re all in for a treat.

The teaser doesn’t feature much footage, but from what we can see, the cast, particularly Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring and Michael Gambon, who is absolutely spot-on with Godfrey.

Here’s the synopsis:

It is 1944 and World War II is reaching its climax. The Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. But in Walmington-on-Sea morale amongst the Home Guard is low. Their new mission then – to patrol the Dover army base – is a great chance to revive spirits and reputation, that is until glamorous journalist Rose Winters arrives to write about their exploits, »
