Exclusive: British director Tom Harper has sharply criticised the British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC) over its decision to give his Hammer horror sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death a 15 certificate.
Speaking in Rotterdam, where his political drama War Book opened Iffr last night, Harper questioned the grounds on which the classification for the horror sequel was made.
“Personally, I was disappointed it (Angel Of Death) was a 15,” Harper told Screen. “There was no blood, no swearing. Obviously, there are some uncomfortable scenes within it. It was always intended to be a 12A.”
The director said the filmmakers were presented by the BBFC with a “whole long list of - to my opinion - questionable reasons” as to why Angel Of Death was made a 15 rather than a 12A.
According to Harper, one of the moments highlighted by the BBFC was “a lady appears behind a door and a door slams”.

After a surprise turnover at the box office back in 2013, the Four Horsemen are set to return for another bout of might and magic with the release of Now You See Me: The Second Act, and director Jon. M Chu recently showcased our very first look at the ensemble cast for the upcoming sequel.
With Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg and Lizzy Caplan — in lieu of Isla Fisher — on board as the aforementioned tricksters, the film will also herald the return of Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine, who will be joined by newcomer Daniel Radcliffe who is set to play his son, Walter Tressler. As for story, The Second Act will pick up around one year after the events of the original film, pitting the Horsemen against a new threat as they make a move to pull of their “most dangerous heist yet.”
Not exactly reinventing the wheel, mind you. »

First announced in the autumn of 2013, Now You See Me 2, the sequel to the high-concept heist magicians original, is heading for release next summer. We're presumably some time away from any stills or trailers yet, but Fandango has scored this ensemble shot of the cast, featuring an unusually hirsute Daniel Radcliffe and an intriguingly shorn Jesse Eisenberg. Director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) also put a snap on his Instagram account.So that's Mark Ruffalo, Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Radcliffe and Michael Caine (plus Chu in the foreground in his own version) aboard a plane set. Where are they all off to? See, this series is all about mysteries. They're throwing them at us already.And as a side point, can we take Eisenberg's buzz-cut as an indication that he's recently been thoroughly balded for his outing as Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice? »
The first image of the complete Now You See Me: The Second Act cast has been unveiled.
Caplan replaces Isla Fisher as the female lead in the movie, after Fisher's pregnancy made her unavailable for filming.

Ugh – Never going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered “inappropriate”

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a timeless classic that will live on bookshelves and movie screens for the rest of mankind's existence. So it's nice to know that publishing house Scholastic intends to keep the magic alive by periodically offering a few upgrades to the printed edition of this first Hogwarts tale. Scholastic has released four images from it's upcoming, fully illustrated reprint of J.K. Rowling's bestselling fantasy novel, in stores this fall.
Kate Greenaway Medal winner Jim Kay created these new artistic renditions of the book's storyline. Today, we get to see four major characters from the Harry Potter series, including Rubeus Hagrid, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy and Ron Weasley. You may notice that they look somewhat different than their movie counterparts.
The new deluxe hardcover edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone will be published globally on October 6 2015. The book will be full color throughout, »
Everything you know about Matthew McConaughey, every Matt Damon impression, True Detective quote and shirtless meme you’ve seen for the last 10 years and through the McConaissance, all stems from Richard Linklater’s 1993 classic Dazed and Confused. As David Wooderson, it was McConaughey’s very first film role, and not only was he perfect casting, his performance and mannerisms in this very movie have defined his entire career. If you’re Daniel Radcliffe, you desperately want to shake your early perception. But if you’re McConaughey, you just keep livin’.
And now to see just how far he’s come, The Criterion Collection has dug out from the archives a brief video of McConaughey’s audition tape with actor Wiley Wiggins and casting director Don Phillips. Needless to say, it’s fantastic; he nails it just walking in the door, but I think he’d get more chicks if he took his shirt off. »

★★☆☆☆If one genre above all others is suffering from over saturation it is the horror genre. You can barely go a couple of weeks nowadays without seeing posters going for the latest offering shimmying its way down the genre conveyor belt claiming to be the "scariest film of the year" or "the most frightening you'll ever see". While they remain relatively inexpensive to make, the general cinema populous can't get enough, blessing such films with monster opening weekends and sequels or spin-offs flying into production almost immediately. One such example is The Woman in Black: Angel of Death (2014) which seeks to capitalise on the success of the Daniel Radcliffe-starring original of 2012.

The Wall Street Journal reports “overall North American box-office receipts and attendance for 2014 declined more than 5% to $10.35 billion from $10.92 billion in 2013, according to box-office tracker Rentrak Corp. – the worst results since 2011.”
Kicking off 2015 with “Best of” lists and awards season on the minds of many Cinephiles, we offer our look back at the worst of 2014. Some awful, some horrendous, we were disappointed and flummoxed by some of the movies Tinseltown released into theaters (and on moviegoers) over the past 12 months.
As we shake our Wamg heads over the biggest letdowns, here we go with our Top 10 list of the Worst Films of 2014.
Dishonorable Mention: Horns
In Horns Daniel Radcliffe played a grieving young man who inexplicably grows horns from his forehead after the community he lives in finds him culpable for the death and murder of his girlfriend. Horns was a mishmash of genres that never quite fit together; crime drama, »
