Actors John Boyega (Star Wars), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones) & Jack Reynor (Free Fire) were all in attendance alongside their Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty).

There was a lovely moment in the press conference where John Boyega recounted the first time he met Will Poulter…..

Detroit tells the story of the Detroit Rebellion of 1967 which saw the Michigan National Guard join both the State and local police to attempt to quash the uprising. The second act of the movie focuses on the events at the Algiers Motel which ultimately saw three young African Americans murdered.

Coy for many months, and indeed during press just yesterday for his new film Logan Lucky, Craig spoke to Stephen Colbert last night on his chat show and delighted the audience by announcing that he was returning once more as James Bond 007. A simple “yes” was all anyone needed from him and that’s exactly what we got but the actor admitted that he had been talking to producers for a few months now to get everything right and now the word has come.

Craig said:

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Scott Davis

For anyone that loved Cannon Films in the 1980’s and their shlocky, grotesque but strangely enjoyable fare, Millennium Films are still flying the Golan-Globus flag some three decades later. Many of those who worked for the charismatic Israeli cousins during that manic few years through such “classics” as Invasion USA, Missing in Action, Lifeforce and Over The Top, are now part of Millennium and while a lot of their properties share much of its DNA, there’s an air of quality control with the new gang.

Their latest 21st-century Cannon-esque outing is The Hitman’s Bodyguard, another run-of-the-mill action-comedy that has all the hallmarks of being a little bit of a stinker from the off. But it’s with great joy that we can shake off those fears and proclaim the film one of the year’s most ridiculous but unabashedly delightful romps with two stars at the top of their powers.

Lionsgate seemingly keen to revive Twilight and The Hunger Games

Author: Scott Davis

Out of all the franchises that have come along in the last decade perhaps none were as big as Lionsgate’s double whammy of Twilight and The Hunger Games, at least in terms of its fan base. Based on the best-selling books, both rode the wave of the young adult sub-genre and were the stalwarts for the many Ya adaptations that followed.

But sadly as with most good things, both series came to a close and the studio, and indeed the fans, have been clamoring for both ever since. And they may all get their wish if Lionsgate have anything to say about it – and CEO Jon Feltheimer opened the door to new stories on Wall Street this week, saying to analysts: (via Variety)

‘England Is Mine’ Review: Dir. Mark Gill (2017)

England Is Mine review: Mark Gill directs this portrait of Steven Patrick Morrissey and his early life in 1970’s Manchester before he went on to become lead singer of seminal 80’s band The Smiths.

England Is Mine review by Scott Davis.

The Smiths – something of an ordinary name for a band that many believe are the most influential music group of the 1980’s or indeed of all time, depending on who you believe. Their music revolutionised the British independent music scene and at the forefront was their enigmatic front man, Morrissey, once voted one of the greatest living British icons so it’s something of a surprise that a film about his legacy and influence hasn’t been made before this one. But finally, we have a glimpse into the mind of the artist with England is Mine, a look at the early years of this legendary musician.

Ballerina would follow in the style of La Femme Nikita, Luc Besson’s acclaimed 90’s thriller, the script also has “stylised” moments closer to Quentin Tarantino and Matthew Vaughn. The story
