Iain Softley’s psychological thriller, Trap for Cinderella, is just a few weeks away from hitting cinemas in the UK, and what we’ve seen so far suggests it’s going to be a memorable new entry for the genre.
The first trailer was released earlier in the month, giving us an excellent first look at Softley’s upcoming return. And now Lionsgate have released the film’s first poster, with Tuppence Middleton front and centre.
Micky (Tuppence Middleton) is a fun-loving photographer, living a party lifestyle in London until a chance encounter with a childhood friend changes her world forever. The opposite to life-and-soul Micky, Do (Alexandra Roach) is a quiet bank clerk, with little by way of a social life. Yet much to the annoyance of her DJ boyfriend Jake (Aneurin Barnard), Micky is all too delighted to reacquaint herself with Do, embracing her old friend with typical gusto. »

Starz has released a full-length trailer for its new limited series The White Queen. Based on Phillippa Gregory’s best-selling series of novels that dramatize the War of the Roses, the show is told from the perspective of three women who laid claim to the English throne in the mid 15th century: Elizabeth Woodville (The White Queen), Margaret Beaufort (The Red Queen), and Anne Neville (The Kingmaker’s Daughter). It’s clear from this debut trailer that the show is very heavily influenced by the success of HBO’s Game of Thrones, but the prospect of telling an historical story from a female perspective is certainly promising. Moreover, the “limited series” (ie. miniseries) nature of the show means that Starz will be telling a complete story from beginning to end in 10 episodes. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The show stars Rebecca Ferguson, Max Irons, Janet McTeer, James Frain, »

To celebrate the arrival of the utterly tense, claustrophobic and overwhelmingly effective chiller ‘The Facility’ – out on DVD and Download now through eOne Momentum – we have a copy to give away to two lucky winners!
In this horror, it’s set as a clinical trial at a remote facility goes terribly wrong. Among those who sign up to test ProSyntrex’s latest drug Pro9 are Adam (Aneurin Barnard), Joni (Alex Reid), Carmen (Skye Lourie) and Jed (Oliver Coleman). The trial is highly secret, with no-one, including the staff who administer injections, aware of who is receiving the drug and who is in the placebo group. Shortly after the trial begins it becomes clear that something has gone wrong. There are unexplained disappearances, bizarre silhouettes and screaming from behind locked doors. Locked inside the facility, unaware of the true nature of events, the surviving patients and staff must band together to »

Director Ian Clark's medical horror The Facility is out on DVD in the UK now, not to mention that you can win a copy right here -- so to celebrate we've nabbed an exclusive look at this clinical trial gone haywire that's flashy in more way than one. Again, this is Not Safe For Work!
Seven volunteers – students Carmen, Arif, and Adam; office temp Joni; journalist Katie; estate agent Jerome; and unemployed Derek – arrive at the remote Limebrook Medical Clinic to take part in a clinical trial run by ProSyntrex Pharmaceuticals. In exchange for a fee of £2,000, these human “guinea pigs” have agreed to spend two weeks in isolation testing an experimental new drug known only as Pro9. After settling into the facility, each participant is given a first injection and, following a group dinner, sent to bed. »
In medical trials around 99% of the subjects suffer no actual side effects from the drugs that are pumped into them, but what about the other 1%? That’s what The Facility takes as its core idea and although it’s not a true story, it is presented as if it’s a reconstruction of an actual event.
This is an area which horror has largely stayed away from but the pharmaceutical industry is presumably ripe for exploitation. The trouble with The Facility is writer and director Ian Clark forgets some essential elements required for this kind of story which render it fairly ineffective.
We start with several members of the public making their way to a building in the middle of nowhere (or the British countryside). We get to know the bare minimum about Joni (temp worker), Morty (unemployed professional guinea pig), Jed (alpha male estate agent), Arif (shy and troubled »

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars
From the esoteric title onwards, almost everything about Francesca Gregorini’s sophomore feature is awash in a desperate degree of self-consciousness, over-eager for viewers to connect with its mannered style of storytelling, which while visually enticing, falls flat in just about every other area.
Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario) is your typical downtrodden, misery-laden teen who can’t find it in herself to get on with her stepmother (Frances O’Connor) and her browbeaten dad (Alfred Molina). Since young, Emanuel has been embittered about the childbirth death of her mother, and is clearly yearning for some sort of maternal figure who she can relate to.
This figure arrives in the way of her new neighbour, Linda (Jessica Biel), who is a single mother with a baby daughter named Chloe. The two become fast friends when Emanuel, entirely out of character, offers to help babysit, and girded by some »

The film, which premiered at Sundance in January, will be screened for buyers at Cannes.
“Emanuel,” which also stars Alfred Molina, Aneurin Barnard, Jimmi Simpson and Frances O’Connor, centers on a sensitive teen who lives with her father and stepmother and develops a bond with a young mother who moves in next door and bears a striking resemblance to her late mother.
Myriad’s slate at Cannes includes “Electric Slide,” “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” “The Curse of Downers Grove,” “Weightless” and “The World Made Straight.” »

Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes is one of the most unique films you’ll see this year.
It’s a dramatic psychological thriller with a powerful secret, captivating from the moment it begins; films of such a high calibre and with such an engaging premise have really been few and far between in recent memory.
Kaya Scodelario is breathtaking in the titular lead, starring as the troubled young teen, Emanuel. She becomes obsessed with her mysterious new neighbour, Linda (Jessica Biel), who bears an uncanny resemblance to Emanuel’s mother, who died whilst giving birth to her.
When Emanuel is invited over to babysit for Linda’s newborn daughter, a striking chemistry develops, forming a strong bond between the young girl on the cusp of adulthood and the new mother. And when reality threatens to burst their bubble, Emanuel goes to great lengths to keep the outside world at bay. »

Director: Francesca Gregorini.
Running Time: 96 minutes.
Synopsis: Troubled Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario) becomes preoccupied with her mysterious new neighbour, Linda (Jessica Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to babysit her newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world and becomes its gatekeeper.
Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes is a text that needs to be dwelled upon. Interpretation will not necessarily come quickly, but that is a very good thing. Good cinema entertains, great cinema stays with you, and Gregorini’s latest feature will do that, for better or worse. With its lyrical dialogue and potent symbolism, the writer/producer/director’s second feature is a daring work that deals with family, grief, guilt, friendship, repulsion and redemption. It is, primarily, a female driven film that is pushed along by the »

The Sundance London Film and Music Festival returns to the capital this weekend and the lineup of film and music events looks to build on the solid foundation established last year.
It’s an exciting time for Independent film with the trailblazing success of the Sundance festival in Utah sparking off dozens of initiatives, the Raindance festival is a notable and vibrant example, and Sundance London is looking to do more than replicating the success of its American cousin.
When we reported on the lineup we singled out Michael Winterbottom’s The Look of Love, a biopic of self-styled King of Soho Paul Raymond, and Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color, his highly anticipated follow-up film to 2004′s Primer. However there are many more excellent films playing across the various strands and we wanted to shine our spotlight on some of the films to look forward to.
