What the Devil: Daniel Radcliffe and Juno Temple on Horns

21 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Much like the Twilight movies, Horns is a supernatural thriller that takes place in Washington State, was filmed in British Columbia, and concerns young people in love and pain.

That’s where the similarities end.

Directed by horror helmer Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, The Hills Have Eyes), this indie is a more abstract, messier take on the paranormal. It starts with the news that one of its main characters, Merrin (Juno Temple), is dead, perhaps murdered by her longtime boyfriend Ig (Daniel Radcliffe). At least that’s what everyone in town thinks.

But when sweet Ig inexplicably sprouts devil horns and develops the magical — and incredibly annoying — power to make everyone around him spill their darkest secrets, he realizes he can use this power to find out who really killed his beloved.

“We don’t try to explain it, it just f--king happens,” Radcliffe says of Ig’s devilish new traits. »

Spandau Ballet's Soul Boys of the Western World: A 'True' '80s doc

29 September 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spandau Ballet are in the middle of a renaissance. They recently marked the 35th anniversary with a Prs for Music Heritage Award, they will soon release brand new music, and will have a primetime ITV special later this year.

Kicking off the Spandau revival though, is Soul Boys of the Western World, a brand new documentary about the band from filmmaker George Hencken.

However, it isn't just your average music documentary with talking heads and hindsight views, as it is made almost entirely out of archive material. Spandau Ballet had been planning on making a movie about their time as a band for several years, and began work on such a project after reuniting for comeback shows in 2009.

However, the project stalled until it was offered to Hencken, who had previously worked with Julien Temple on 2012's London - The Modern Babylon.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Tokyo Tribe’

7 September 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

, meaning there’s plenty of pinku-style nudity and threatened rape, martial-arts action and the occasional blood geyser. If that sounds like fun, it is, although the latest from the culty maker of “Suicide Club,” “Love Exposure” and last year’s Tiff Midnight Madness audience-award winner, “Why Don’t You Play in Hell?,” is so insistently over-the-top from the start that the results are just fairly amusing when they ought to be exhilarating. Already in release in Japan, “Tokyo Tribe” should sell in other Asian markets where hip-hop has made strong pop-culture inroads. Elsewhere, it will have campy appeal as a niche home-format item.

Sadistic, cannibalistic yakuza boss Lord Buppa (the almost unbearably hammy Riki Takeuchi, a Takashi Miike veteran) keeps the various individual gangs dominating Tokyo districts at war with each other, while biding time until the day he’ll exterminate them all. That day has arrived, just as his »

Refreshed London Screenings launches

23 June 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

London’s biggest film export event returns with a new name and strong selection of upcoming titles.

This year’s London Screenings (June 23-26) marks the 11th edition of the capital’s biggest film export event and has been given a make-over for 2014.

It has dropped the previous title of the London UK Film Focus (Luff) and will introduce various new strands. But organisers are quick to point out this isn’t a case of reinventing the event - more of “buffing it up” after more than a decade.

“Everyone felt that after doing it for 10 years, maybe it was time for a bit of a facelift,” says Adrian Wootton, CEO of Film London, which organises the London Screenings.

The budget of around $330,000 is roughly the same as in previous years. The key difference is that the event, which generates an estimated $8m a year in international business for British films and sales agents, has secured »
