Iron Man 3 still holding strong while The Look of Love is sadly unrequited

8 May 2013 8:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Three's the magic number for Shane Black's superhero sequel as it doubles the takings of Iron Man 2. Meanwhile, Michael Winterbottom's Paul Raymond biopic heads south

The winner

After four days, Iron Man 3 was running just 13% behind The Avengers at the same stage of its UK run, suggesting that the film would finish a lot closer to the superhero team-up (£51.9m) than to either of the earlier Iron Man movies. Seven days later, and it's a similar story, with Iron Man 3 at an impressive £24.6m as of Sunday night, a slim 18% behind Avengers at the same point of release. If it continues at a similar pace, Iron Man 3 should end up around £42-43m here. The first Iron Man film maxed out at £17.4m, while the sequel made it to £21.3m, so the third episode looks set to double its predecessor.

With bank holiday takings added in, »

I'm So Excited, The Eye Of The Storm, Gimme The Loot: what to see at the cinema this week

I'm So Excited | The Eye Of The Storm | Gimme The Loot | Robosapien | Come Out And Play | Shootout At Wadala | 21 & Over | Dead Man Down | Dragon | Chimpanzee | It's Such A Beautiful Day | All Stars

I'm So Excited (15)

(Pedro Almodóvar, 2012, Spa) Javier Cámara, Raúl Arévalo, Carlos Areces. 90 mins

Almodóvar responds to his country's economic woes with camp hysteria and Carry On humour. In many ways this airborne disaster farce – anarchic, absurdist, garishly stylish and gleefully debauched – is a return to the Spanish auteur's subversive roots. But there's a serious subtext to the silliness, and the metaphors are brought back down to earth for a satisfying landing.

The Eye Of The Storm (15)

(Fred Schepisi, 2011, Aus) Charlotte Rampling, Geoffrey Rush, Judy Davis. 119 mins

The imminent death of Rampling's matriarch throws an aristocratic family's dysfunction into relief in this Aussie drama, whose overstuffed story is redeemed by three watchable leads.

Gimme The Loot (15)

(Adam Leon, 2012, Us) Tashiana Washington, »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Theo Stevenson and Akai talk All Stars

3 May 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sometimes when you walk into a room to interview the talent from a movie, you feel underdressed somewhat, or at times, even rather uncool. Well, never has that feeling felt so prominent, upon walking in to interview the lead roles of Ben Gregor’s All Stars Theo Stevenson and Akai Osei-Mansfield, who with their suave hair do’s and trendy outfits, made me feel, well, a little bit old.

The pair – who play Ethan and Jade, respectively, were in fine spirits as their chemistry from within the film was as evident in real life, and the two teenagers discussed their close friendship. They also talk about balancing their acting careers with their schoolwork, and Akai – famed for his dancing ability – talks about his role in the film, while Theo also delves into his own dancing talents.

All Stars – review

3 May 2013 3:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Not even the appearance of John Barrowman can bring this formulaic family dance movie to life

Good-natured, well-meaning, but fundamentally and inescapably a bit ropey: that's really the only conclusion possible for this British urban dance movie for family audiences.

It sticks to a time-honoured formula: local youth club is going to be demolished unless the kids can raise money with a talent show. (Er, huh? Anyone over eight years, or eight months, old can see how nonsensical that is … but strict plot credibility isn't the issue.)

Theo Stevenson and Akai Osei-Mansfield do their level best as the youthful heroes, and the grownup cast includes Ashley Walters, Ashley Jensen and Hugh Dennis as, respectively, tough parent, long-suffering club director and grumpy headteacher. There are some interesting and ambitious "fantasy" sequences, including a Fred'n'Ginger dance routine with none other than John Barrowman opposite his screen daughter, played by Fleur Houdijk.

Iron Man 3 smashes his way to the top at the UK box office

2 May 2013 3:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

More like an Avengers Assemble sequel than a tired third instalment, the reinvigorated action hero powers in at No 1

The winner

As Disney prepared Iron Man 3 for release, the question was always: would it perform like the first two instalments in the Tony Stark series, or could it fly close to the astonishing success of The Avengers last summer? Iron Man opened in May 2008 with £5.47m including £667,000 in previews. Iron Man 2 followed two years later with £7.66m including previews of £877,000, an increase of 40%. Then April 2012 saw The Avengers soar away with £15.78m, including £2.55m in previews – more than double the Iron Man 2 debut.

With £13.71m including £2.32m in previews, Iron Man 3 is 79% up on the opening of Iron Man 2 and just 13% down on the equivalent number for Avengers. In other words, the film has performed more like a sequel to Avengers than to the Iron Man movies. »

All Stars review

Review Caroline Preece 2 May 2013 - 06:51

Brit dance movie All Stars provides some decent choreography but little in the way of originality, Caroline writes...

Three years since Streetdance 3D hit British audiences as a superior dance movie encouraged by the Britain’s Got Talent-inspired streetdance explosion, here's a version of the movie for artsy youngsters which, though wrapped up as a political statement of sorts, adds absolutely nothing inspiring or different to the dance movie genre.

A lot the problem isn’t with this film in particular, as the sheer number of dance movies released every year borders on the ludicrous when you realise how similar all of them are. That said, this is depressingly haphazard and seems like a wasted opportunity to address certain real-life issues.

All Stars boasts a talented young cast but, unfortunately, that talent lies mainly in their dancing rather than acting abilities. The premise is »

4 April 2013 12:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

John Barrowman straps on his dancing shoes in a new exclusive clip from All Stars.

The Torchwood and Doctor Who actor, who recently appeared in Zero Dark Thirty, has a cameo role as Matthew in the Vertigo Films kids' comedy.

Barrowman and co-star Fleur Houdijk, who plays Amy, are show dancing in a scene that evokes Oscar-winning black-and-white movie The Artist.

All Stars centres on two children who put on a dance show in order to save their struggling youth centre from going under. Theo Stevenson, Akai Osei-Mansfield, Ashley Jensen and Kimberley Walsh star in the movie, which opens in cinemas on May 3.

New UK Trailer and Quad Poster for All Stars

22 March 2013 3:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Hitting cinemas at the start of May, All Stars is one of the first family-friendly films of the year produced on our shores.

The 3D dramatic comedy debuted its first teaser trailer at the end of last year. And with just over a month before it arrives, Vertigo have debuted a new full-length trailer, along with All Stars’ UK quad poster.

Ethan (Theo Stevenson) and Jaden (Akai) have a plan – recruit a crew, stage a talent show, raise lots of money and save The Garage (their youth club) from demolition…all whilst Ethan impresses the girl of his dreams with his dancing skills.

The trouble is Ethan can’t dance, Jaden’s parents have banned him from dancing, and the other members of their new crew the ‘All Stars’ turn out to be totally uncoordinated!
