Friday’s best TV

Marvel’s Agents Of Shield hit Hydra where it hurts, The Musketeers ride to the rescue and Amy Winehouse is featured in Sings Motown. Plus: Unreported World witnesses the battle against Isis in Kobani and more scenes from An Island Parish: Falklands

Channel 4’s factual strand, always intimate and immediate, returns with a dispatch from Syria. The Kurdish people of Kobani, a town near the Turkish border, are on the verge of repelling Isis after a three-month siege. Kiki King flinches as the final few Isis mortars explode, but mainly captures a community clinging defiantly to the scraps of their old lives. One remaining school flourishes in a bunker, the last hospital does what it can and fierce young women tote machine guns on the frontline. Flowers in the rubble. Jack Seale

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Must Watch: First Official Trailer For Kurt Documentary ‘Cobain: Montage Of Heck’

19 March 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kurt Cobain has fascinated music lovers from when he was alive and kicking right through to his untimely death and beyond. The legendary, immensely talented Nirvana frontman was a whirlwind of invention and an utter hurricane of talent but along with those levels of creativity, there always comes a flip-side and, as we all know, in this case it was his suicide at 27.

Nirvana as a band and in their own right were, of course, hugely influential and original but Cobain was the lead vision who really clicked into the slot with fans. Cobain: Montage Of Heck is all about the lead man, as filmmaker Brett Morgen blends Cobain’s personal archive of art, music, never seen before movies, animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest friends.

We’re told we’ll get to follow Kurt from his earliest years right through to the end, as we discover »

First Poster & Release Details For Amy Winehouse Documentary ‘Amy’

18 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Way before all the (deserved) hype kicked off after the release of Back to Black, I remember randomly picking up Frank by Amy Winehouse in Woolworths back in 2003…weren’t things a little different? Yes, we had the internet but it was mostly dial-up and AOL ruled the world but in a little corner of the world, I heard that first album and was completely blown away. I didn’t necessarily relate to her lyrics on a one-to-one basis but her voice and style was undeniable.

The beauty of music, like the classic films, is that it never fails to spread the good word in all respects and when there was pure Winehouse, it was all kinds of mighty. When I heard about her death, there was a bizarre mix of sadness and expectancy but there was definitely one defining memory among the fallout, it was of a sad regret, »

First poster for Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy

18 March 2015 4:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new documentary is being released that chronicles the life of tragic pop star Amy Winehouse, who died at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.

Check out the poster and press release below:

From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna), Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words.

Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.

A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era.

Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and »

Coming from Senna director Asif Kapadia, Amy uses extensive archive footage and previously unheard tracks to give us unprecedented insight into the tragic life of six time Grammy award winner Amy Winehouse. She was a genuine musical talent unlike few we have seen before, using her own songs to analyse her own problems, whose troubled relationships and lifestyle unfortunately began to outshine her musical achievements, until she died in 2011 from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27. Amy reaches cinemas on this side of the pond on July 3rd, and promises an insightful and heart breaking look at one of the purest musical talents of this generation. »

Amy Winehouse documentary release date confirmed, poster unveiled

18 March 2015 3:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Asif Kapadia's documentary about Amy Winehouse will be released in UK cinemas this summer.

Amy, which reunites the team behind the BAFTA Award-winning Senna, will open on July 3 through Altitude Films.

The documentary will use previously-unseen archive footage and unheard tracks to tell Winehouse's story in her own words.

Universal Music UK CEO David Joseph said of the film earlier this year: "About two years ago we decided to make a movie about her - her career and her life. It's a very complicated and tender movie.

"It tackles lots of things about family and media, fame, addiction, but most importantly, it captures the very heart of what she was about, which is an amazing person and a true musical genius."

Winehouse rose to fame with her 2003 debut album Frank, which earned her a Mercury Prize nomination. Her 2006 follow-up Back to Black featured the hit single 'Rehab' and won »

First Look At Amy

18 March 2015 12:42 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in 2010, the BAFTA-winning Senna made the filmgoing world sit up and take note of Asif Kapadia. Empire was quick to champion his F1 doc and acclaim him a likely heir to Errol Morris’s crown as a future documentarian great. Since then, he’s been squirrelled away working on a couple of documentary shorts and an untitled Amy Winehouse project. Well, that one has a name now – Amy – as well as a first poster and a July release date. With Senna, Kapadia managed to enthral racing fanatics and petrol-phobes alike, coming at his subject from an outsider’s vantage point. He’ll be looking to repeat the trick with the much-loved, much-troubled singer, cutting through the tabloid white noise to get to the heart of what made Amy Winehouse tick – and occasionally, not tick – in her own words. It’ll follow her career and story up to her tragic »

The Near-Perfect First Season of 'Glee'

17 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Against a rival troupe's high-gloss staging of Amy Winehouse's "Rehab," New Directions' soaring rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'" has a winsome, homemade aspect. Near the end of the pilot for "Glee," stepping forward one by one in their scarlet shirts, the "Lima losers" of Fox's high-school musical uncover the hopeful core of Journey's classic, a reminder that the series, which concludes its run this Friday, set the tone for its near-perfect first season from the start. "By its very definition," as a commemorative plaque in the episode reads, "Glee is about opening yourself up to joy." Though the five seasons that followed periodically achieved the light, fizzy command of the first—for my money, the finest musical number in the annals of "Glee" is the second season's swooning, all-male cover of "Teenage Dream," which outdoes Katy Perry's original by a country mile—the series has long since lost its. »

Still surprised by Beck's shocking win for Album of the Year at the Grammys? Don't be. "This win is in the long time Grammy tradition of seeming to honor veterans who had not received such recognition from the Grammy Awards," explains Gold Derby's latest contest champ Roosevelt Stacy (RSHouston is his username) who scored the best while predicting the 2014 Grammy Awards. -Break- Grammys spark forums firestorm: Beyonce losses, Beck win, Kanye West antics Stacy, a 56-year-old social worker counselor from Houston, Texas, earned the #1 position on our Grammys leaderboard thanks to his 71% accuracy and 8,194 point score.

The Voice UK: How did Twitter react to episode 5?

7 February 2015 1:31 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

With the blind auditions well and truly underway, the fifth episode of The Voice had yet more of the Welsh contingent and a moment of clarity for Rita Ora on who wears kilts. More of that later.

Digital Spy rounds up the best reactions to this week's auditions from coaches Ricky Wilson, Sir Tom Jones, Rita Ora and will.i.am - as well as your views via Twitter making up the fifth coach.

1. With four episodes already passed, it seems there is now genuine concern for the coaches' cleanliness standards - with tonight's episode the fifth of wearing the same clothes:

The Voice judges clothes must be smelling a bit...they've had the same on for weeks #TheVoice

— Kathryn (@KathrynAnne88) February 7, 2015

#TheVoice why is Rita wearing the same dress all the time?

Is Rita Ora ever gonna change her hair? #thevoice

The Voice UK: Vikesh, Claudia - Who had the best audition?

7 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Well, tonight's episode (February 7) of The Voice UK was very illuminating - and we're not just talking about Rita Ora learning all sorts of things from Sir Tom Jones, or will.i.am opening up about his lack of muscles. Nope - while all of that was very interesting, we also got to know which eight new acts have made it through to the blind auditions.

But who made the biggest impression? Who will we be excited to see again in the upcoming battle rounds? Read on as we assess the auditions from tonight's episode of The Voice...

1. Vikesh Champaneri

Song: 'Hometown Glory' - Adele

Team: Team Ricky (Sir Tom and Rita also turned)

Maybe it was just the song? Maybe - but we don't think so. Vikesh - a booker for posh taxis - took to the stage and completely blindsided us with his incredible take on 'Hometown Glory'. »

16 hottest forums posts: Will Beyonce, Sam Smith or Beck win Grammy for Album of the Year?

7 February 2015 12:25 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Join the fiery discussion going on right now in our infamous message boards where Hollywood stars, directors, execs and other honchos hide behind cyber-nicknames. Sample comments below with links to those hot threads. See more here. -Break- Grammy races for top categories - Click here to discuss Peter Griffin: Sam Smith is not pulling an Amy Winehouse. He will most likely win 2 or 3 awards. 4 if he is lucky and embraced by voters. PoweR: I think Sam Smith is a lock for three awards: Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album. I think he has a very good chance at winning Song of the Year and/or Record of the Year. Both categories almost always go hand and hand. I don't see why Sam can't pull an Amy Winehouse. He has the most momentum going into the race. I say three is the minimum and five is the max. »

A Rundown Of Buzzy Berlin Titles As Market Begins To Roll

6 February 2015 8:34 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The halls are starting to hum softly here in Berlin as the European Film Market swings into gear. The first deals were announced yesterday before the event officially opened, with The Weinstein Co notably boarding Im Global’s The Man Who Made It Snow. This morning, FilmNation unveiled a series of offshore output deals for titles from Open Road, which will kick off with the Jamie Foxx/Michelle Monaghan-starrer Sleepless Nights.

Though it’s not likely to be a frenzy, and with currency concerns in the market internationally, Berlin should see more action in the coming days. Distributors are looking for product for 2016 and beyond, and some memorable buys have emerged here in recent years. In 2014, The Weinstein Company made a record-setting $7M deal for The Imitation Game which has now made about $140M worldwide and has an armful of Oscar nominations to boot.

Much of the pre-buy buzz »
