The Us release of Miss Sloane came in the same month as the 2016 presidential election finally came to pass, and perhaps it's only down to a general exasperation with politics that it has been so overlooked. The absurdity of the news has only been compounded over the six months that it's taken to arrive in UK cinemas, but it's testament to how well executed the film is that this story of corruption and skullduggery in Washington DC still seems remarkable.
The film centres on Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), a ruthless lobbyist who has been hauled in to plead the Fifth in front of an ethics committee (chaired by John Lithgow's pompous senator), and the three months that led to these proceedings. Miss Sloane has quite the reputation in Washington, »

Miss Sloane, 2016.
Directed by John Madden.
Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) is the most in-demand political lobbyist in Washington DC. Famous for her ruthless cunning, she’s poached from a large agency by a smaller one, headed Rodolfo Schmidt (Mark Strong) to oppose an initiative she would have been advocating had she stayed with her previous company.

Ah, the courtroom drama – a perennially absorbing sub-genre, with endeavours illuminating the screen from as far as back as 12 Angry Men and To Kill a Mockingbird, to the likes of Harrison Ford’s Witness, or Primal Fear, and even Liar Liar. John Madden’s Miss Sloane thrives in this very capacity, and is structured intelligently, as we begin in court, to then proceed into flashbacks as the viewer pieces this tale together, and understand how the eponymous protagonist found herself in this perilous situation – only to then catch up with ourselves for the grand finale.
Jessica Chastain is the formidable Elizabeth Sloane, who finds herself in court over a seemingly trivial matter, transpiring to be a mere diversion tactic, as the ruthless, influential lobbyist seems to gaining some headway in her battle to successfully bring a new legislation through Congress to ensure there are background checks on gun-owners. »

There’s spy action abound in the latest and all-too-brief promo for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Matthew Vaughn’s dapper sequel in which Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) plot course for America – the mountains of Kentucky, to be specific – in order to strike up an uneasy alliance with their American counterpart.
We are, of course, referring to the Statesman, a top-secret organization of larger-than-life agents that’s all housed up inside a rather ostentatious whiskey distillery high up in the mountains. Doing good on last week’s Old Forester-themed featurette, up above you’ll see Eggsy and Merlin raising a glass, only to discover that the secret whereabouts of Statesman HQ is hiding in plain sight. And so, following a quick hop across the pond, Egerton and Strong’s sharp-suited leads come into contact with three primary agents: Channing Tatum (Tequila), Jeff Bridges (Champagne) and Pedro Pascal (Jack »

Miss Sloane review
There’s something painfully obvious while watching Miss Sloane, and that’s the fact that despite its December 2016 release in the USA the film was almost completely ignored on the awards circuit. In hindsight this should be seen as quite the travesty because, if nothing else, Jessica Chastain deserved so much more than just a Golden Globe nomination. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that Chastain towers large above her peers, with only Amy Adams (another Oscar snub this year) holding a candle to her. So why the neglect for Miss Sloane? Well, tackling America’s gun culture is always going to divide the domestic audience, and add to that a bunch of purposefully unlikable protagonists fighting for a »

There are a lot of sequels for moviegoers to be excited about this year, but Kingsman 2 is probably at the very top of many people's lists. We still have to wait a bit to see if the sequel can live up to the surprising greatness of Kingsman: The Secret Service, but Fox and Matthew Vaughn seem to think it will. They are confident enough in it that they already have plans for Kingsman 3, which is good news for those who want to see more of Eggsy and his spy counterparts in the future. Apparently, a Kingsman trilogy has been the plan all along.
