Ah, life in the country…such bucolic bliss. Until your neighbor’s dog contracts rabies, kills its owner, and then comes after you! »

Sony’s Spider-Man spin-off, Venom, is preparing to add another up-and-coming name to its roster; according to The Hollywood Reporter, Rogue One co-star Riz Ahmed is in talks to appear opposite Tom Hardy, who’s playing the titular symbiote. There’s no word yet on who Ahmed would play in the movie, although he won’t be Carnage, the film’s already-announced villain.
Sony is trying to carve out its own little mini-cinematic universe with its Spider-Man-adjacent properties, with Venom and a Black Cat and Silver Sable film in the works. Ahmed, meanwhile, continues to make a name for himself; last year, he appeared in the Star Wars spin-off, plus, HBO’s The Night Of, after eye-catching supporting turns in previous years in films like Nightcrawler and Chris Morris’ cult classic terrorism comedy Four Lions. »

Show almost anyone a picture of Riz Ahmed and they’ll be able to place him in something. It could be from Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker’s 2008 Big Brother zombie invasion satire, Dead Set. It might be as Aaron Kalloor, the Mark Zuckerberg techno genius who occupied one of the more interesting threads from Jason Bourne. More realistically, it’ll be from last year’s billion dollar Star Wars blockbuster, Rogue One, in which he played conflicted pilot Bodhi Rook. The point is, you can’t pigeon hole the guy.
Take this week’s City of Tiny Lights, in which Ahmed plays a London private eye investigating the case of a missing sex worker. The film might drown in its own dimly lit gloom, but the fact you stick with it is down to another chameleonic performance from the young Brit. You can read our review here. »

Usually the last thing I want in my comic book or graphic novel is politics… Usually I am looking for a book that takes me out of the real world a little bit and gives me some surreal fantastical story… Usually. When I read the write up and blurb for Scotland Yardie I decided, to hell with my usual. This book sounded like a story that was pulling all the real world issues from my nations heartland and poking them with a bloody big stick with a nice big tongue planted firmly in its cheek.
Its hard to actually boil down what Scotland Yardie is in a simple synopsis for you guys but I am going to try. With crime, police corruption, racism, unexplained deaths, Brexit, mass immigration and a new strand of a highly addictive drug named »

This Week, Neil Calloway argues that it’s time we ended the award ceremony…
When Hugh Laurie received his Golden Globe last month, he made a joke that it would be the final time the ceremony would take place; the awards are given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Hollywood, the press and foreigners are all things that Donald Trump hates.
Of course, barring a disaster, 2017 won’t be the last ever Golden Globes, but perhaps time should be called on another award ceremony. Tonight (Sunday) sees the 70th BAFTA awards. Most people are claiming their pension at that age, so maybe it’s time to shake their hand, give them a gold watch and tell them they’ll get an invite to the Christmas party, but it’s time to take up knitting or golf.
We can kid ourselves, when we see Hollywood stars on the red carpet, »

From Cake to Paedogeddon, Chris Morris’s epochal satire always said the unsayable. No other comedy has touched it – or even come close
As Brass Eye turns 20, it’s worth remembering that it probably shouldn’t have made it to our screens at all. When Chris Morris’s epochal media satire first aired, the broadcasting code forbade programme makers from misleading interviewees for entertainment purposes. Channel 4 defended the show and an amendment informally known as “the Brass Eye clause” was incorporated into the code. It’s an example of Morris’s apparent ability to bend reality according to his needs – and at the time of Brass Eye, he appeared able to perform this trick at will.
