★☆☆☆☆ It was perhaps foolish to think that Bait (2012) might recall the raw menace of Stephen Spielberg's Jaws (1975) or Joe Dante's B-movie classic Piranha (1978). But Kimble Rendall's toothless horror is nothing of anything really: an underwater travesty which takes itself far too seriously and comes nowhere close to making the slightest contribution to the genre. Rendall has presumably lured the cast from 90210 to star in his film as a group of air-headed teens and shoppers, from Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga) to Julian McMahon, find themselves trapped inside a supermarket following a devastating tsunami.
While the clean-up on aisle five gets underway, the hapless Ozzies soon realise they aren't alone - a great white shark isn't satisfied with the reduced-to-clear items and is on the prowl for some flesh. If the team behind the Scary Movie franchise made a Jaws spoof, this is what it would look like. »

Working with a real-life 1980s incident in New Caledonia (not dissimilar to a French Falklands), Kassovitz crafts a thoughtful thriller with no heroes, only good intentions compromised by colonialist mistrust and distant politics. His negotiator is set between a hair-triggered French military and separatist rebels, but with an election back home, not everyone wants a peaceful outcome.
Promised Land (15)
With fracking as the central concern, this finds it hard to avoid being an "issue movie", but there's some human drama to it. Damon's gas agent comes to an archetypal small town with a buyout in mind, but the locals and their country ways get to him. »

Catherine Hardwicke is set to direct The Age of Miracles, a film based on Karen Thompson Walker's best-selling debut novel. Seth Lochhead (Hanna) has adapted the screenplay. River Road Entertainment's founder Bill Pohlad will produce.
Set amidst an advancing catastrophe after the Earth's rotation mysteriously slows, The Age of Miracles is a suspenseful and romantic snapshot of one young girl's adolescence, a poignant family drama, and a heartrending glimpse into the everyday tragedies and triumphs that define what it is to be human in a world that might just be ending.
Hardwicke recently completed production on Plush, a thriller she co-wrote with Arty Nelson. The film will star Emily Browning, Cam Gigandet, and Xavier Samuel. She is currently in production directing CBS' drama pilot, Reckless, from a script by Dana Stevens.
Latest adaptation of a bestselling Meyer novel has received atrocious ratings on the review-aggregator web site Rotten Tomatoes "Dopey, derivative and dull, The Host is a brazen combination of unoriginal science-fiction themes, young-adult pandering and bottom-line calculation," says New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis. And Dargis' opinion is one of the kinder ones that U.S. critics have written about Andrew Niccol's mix of romance, adventure, and science-fiction, starring Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, Max Irons, and Jake Abel, and co-produced by the author of the novel on which the film is based (Niccol himself is credited for the adapation): Stephenie Meyer, best known as the brain behind the Twilight Saga literary and cinematic franchises.

There are many challenges associated with wrapping up a franchise with a fanbase large enough to warrant its own quirky name, but The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 delivered on them. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was able to stay within the confines set by the established story while at the same time using her creative license to give audiences something they didn’t expect, all without antagonizing fans of the series.
Picking up exactly where Breaking Dawn – Part 1 left off, Part 2 showcases Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) adjustment to vampire life, revealing that both in life and death she possesses unexplainable mental abilities. The only ”normal” side effect of this transition we are privy to is her supernatural strength, which exceeds even the strongest Cullen, Emmett (Kellan Lutz). A talent which consistently amuses and humbles her husband, Edward (Robert Pattinson). For the first time in the series we see Bella as more than simply the damsel-in-distress. »

The emotional tug-of-war between love and lust has long inspired novels and films, including Doris Lessing.s novel The Grandmothers. For its cinematic adaptation, screenwriter Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, A Dangerous Method) and director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel, Nathalie.) had their work cut out for them, and they appear to have cut out a bit of the story in their process.

Naomi Watts and Robin Wright play lifelong best friends and neighbors whose relationships with each other.s sons turns sexual.

Here we have the trailer for upcoming drama Two Mothers. The film features The Impossible’s current Oscar-nominee, Naomi Watts, alongside Robin Wright (formally Penn), as a pair of childhood best friends and neighbours living the life of luxury in Australia. However, their close worlds collide when each fall for the others’ younger son, leaving an emotional trail of devastation neither is prepared for.
We suggest a conclusion trashed out on Jeremy Kyle!
Rising stars James Frecheville (the excellent lead in David Michod’s unforgettable Animal Kingdom) and Xavier Samuel play the young studs being eyed by the ‘older’ beauties’. Two Mothers also features another superb Animal Kingdom face, in the form of Ben Mendelsohn.
Anne Fontaine directs the film based on Doris Lessing’s acclaimed best-sellling novel, which hits cinemas in France (with a changed title of Perfect Mothers) on the 3rd April. Dates for UK and Us are still awaited. »

Yeah, this is going to end well. What could possibly go wrong with sleeping with your best friend’s mother? Oh wait, so then your best friend decides to sleep with your mother to get back at you? And the two of you end up falling love? Oh yeah, this is going to work out well. I see a happily ever after ending on the horizon! (Um, not really.) Take a look at the first trailer for “Coco Before Chanel” director Anne Fontaine’s “Two Mothers” (called “Perfect Mothers” in France, apparently), based on the book by Doris Lessing. The film recently played at Sundance last month, but as far as I know, there is no word of a Stateside release date yet. The topic might be a tad too spicy for prudish American audiences for the film to open too wide, so you’re probably looking at a limited »
