Mark Strong joins Nicole Kidman in Before I Go To Sleep

31 October 2012 7:47 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Rowan Joffe's Before I Go To Sleep psychological thriller casts Mark Strong Variety reports that Joffe's adapting the screenplay based on the bestselling book written by S.J. Watson. The story tells of a woman from north London (Kidman) who wakes every morning with no recollection of anything. Her husband tells her she suffered a trauma, and she dare not leave the house. After she sneaks off to see a doctor (played by Strong), she's given a digital recorder and urged to play back her thoughts the day after, in hopes of re-integrating her mind. It works, but shockingly-enough, she realizes that the man who's sleeping next to her, isn't her husband. Ridley Scott and Liza Marshall of Scott Free are producing alongside with Mark Gill and Matthew O'Toole. Peter Heslop, Avi Lerner, Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson and John Thompson are serving as executive producers on the film »

Accused

9pm, BBC1

For once largely eschewing social realism, there's more than a hint of Tales Of The Unexpected about the latest offering in Jimmy McGovern's drama series. Tonight we follow the story of teenager Stephen Cartwright (Robert Sheehan), devastated when his mother dies and his father Peter (John Bishop) begins a relationship with palliative care nurse

Charlotte (Sheridan Smith). Propelled by strong performances, it all hangs together, though. Jonathan Wright

Islam: The Untold Story

9pm, Channel 4

Tom Holland has written a number of history books dealing with empires, but here he takes on something more controversial – the historical reality of the birth of Islam. In this considered film, which is as much about whether history should accommodate faith, he explores sceptical approaches to the topic by western historians. His starting »

Pawn Stars on Facebook and foxes on Twitter

11 June 2012 8:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As broadcasters look for new ways to engage audiences, mobile apps and digital content are becoming increasingly important

Creating compelling online games and digital apps for factual TV programmes is a different, and sometimes tougher, ball game than it is to create apps for a big entertainment programme such as Britain's Got Talent on ITV or Million Pound Drop on Channel 4.

When you are talking about providing more in-depth information to a history or factual show, adding a "digital dimension" can be relatively straightforward but, creating a game or some kind of interactive application can be more difficult to get right. The audiences for these kinds of factual programmes can also be quite a bit smaller than entertainment shows as well, which limits the investment scope.

But there are clear signs, with shows such as Pawn Stars on the History channel and Food Hospital on Channel 4, that app »

Alan Partridge Returning In Two New Shows For Sky

19 May 2012 1:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Steve Coogan’s most famous creation Alan Partridge is returning to television in two new shows for Sky Atlantic.

Having been poached from the BBC, the character of Partridge will appear in two original programs as well as a re-edited ”Mid Morning matters,” the popular online Alan Partridge series for Fosters’ Funny.

The two new shows are ‘Alan Partridge: Welcome To The Places of My Life’ which will follow Alan as he tours Norfolk and ‘Alan Partridge on Open Books with Martin Bryce’ where Alan will be interviewed about his literary works.

Steven Coogan commented;

“Alan has been off the TV for too long but he is even more excited than me about his chance to have a second bite of the cherry. Alan feels the second decade of the millennium is the right time.”

As well as this, there is a brand new series of ‘Mid Morning Matters” as »

A Russian Play Review: Two Men, One Tiny Room & A Revolution Close At Hand!

6 March 2012 1:57 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Armed with my over-sized golf umbrella, I set off to see the last performance of “A Russian Play” written by John Thompson and directed by David Salter at the Giant Olive theatre above the Lion and Unicorn Pub in Kentish Town. I was shocked to find so many people in the pub on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but it was packed and not to see the rugby! The Lion and Unicorn Pub is a bit of a diamond in the rough. Just like the play it is set in dingy surroundings, Kentish Town has always had that knockabout appeal to me, but the interior is lovely , quaint and definitely worth a visit.

“A Russian play” is set in the very cold winter of 1916 in Petrograd. The war is not over with the Germans and people are hungry. In a tiny room we find a disheveled and freezing Fyodor, »
