Based on the hit British play “Posh,” the Lone Scherfig-helmed “The Riot Club” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month (read our review here) and a new clip (via The Guardian) is here – arriving just in time as the film opens in UK theaters today – along with a ten-minute chat with the principal cast. Starring Max Irons (“The Host”), Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”) and Douglas Booth (“Noah”) the film follows a pair of Oxford University freshmen (Irons and Claflin) as they assimilate into the rarified culture of the school, ending up in the exclusive Riot Club. Tensions come to a head, very bad decisions are made, and things go out of control in one night at a respectable establishment called The Bull Head. The nearly two-minute-long clip takes place before Irons and Claflin officially become members of the titular society, where the three leads are having a. »

The Riot Club no match for feelgood comedy drama on social networks in the UK.
The true story of gay activists who supported miners during the strike of 1984 generated more than 2,400 comments from Sept 4-10, with more than 45% of those expressing intent to view.
Lone Scherfig’s British elite drama The Riot Club, starring Max Irons and Sam Claflin, had to settle for second place with just over 1,900 comments, with a healthy 41% intending to covert comments into cinema tickets.

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise. As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol. These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, »

Actors Max Irons, Douglas Booth and Sam Claflin talk to Steve Rose about their new film The Riot Club, a drama about a hedonistic upper-class dining society not dissimilar to the Bullingdon Club, whose past members include David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson. The cast describe meeting former club members who had taken part in ritualised excess and say the prime minister is looking forward to seeing the film Continue reading »

Max Irons and Sam Claflin play two freshmen at Oxford who revel in the notoriety when they are invited to join the university's elitist brotherhood, 'The Riot Club'. But the rites of initiation pale by comparison when the rich boys descend on a quiet pub in the country for a special night of debauchery. The triple threat of peer pressure, privilege and alcohol is fiercely exposed by An Education director Lone Scherfig and her uniformly excellent cast in playwright Laura Wade's adaptation of her own stage hit 'Posh'. »
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which has delivered us with wave after wave of posters and tiny tease videos, finally has a trailer, and it’s actually pretty cool, though perhaps not especially informative for those who haven’t read the books, and are instead just making their way through the films.
We’ve already seen some very short clips of Peeta doing publicity shots, and we get more of that, and we get to see Katniss throwing her weight around a bit, but for the most part, you’ve got to know what’s going on if you want to know what the trailer is giving you.
One question that a lot of people have going in, which the trailer doesn’t really hint at, is where exactly the first one ends. I actually thought we might get a little nugget that might help people figure this out, »

Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss in the action packed look at “Part 1”
“I never wanted any of this.”
So says Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen at the beginning of the trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. And it’s no wonder why: The first look at the third installment finds Katniss and cohorts shooting their way in and out of various war zones, battling Star Wars-esque Peace Keepers, and clutching their loved ones for dear life. Prim!
The trailer also gives us our first good look at District 13 and the newest citizens of Panem (Julianne Moore as President Coin, a brief glimpse of Natalie Dormer as Cressida), as well as reuniting us with familiar faces (a truly depressing make-under for Effie; oodles of Liam Hemsworth, for all you Team Gale-rs disappointed in Catching Fire).
And a single, heart wrenching shot of Sam Claflin’s Finnick Odair. We aren’t »
Ahead of its hotly-anticipated release in November, Lionsgate has debuted a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the penultimate chapter in the hugely-successful Hunger Games franchise, and we have it for you below after the official synopsis…

Lionsgate has released the full-length The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 trailer for the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the Hunger Games franchise. The film finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) at the forefront of the rebellion in District 13 while Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) are held captive in the Capitol. Francis Lawrence surprised the hell out of me with Catching Fire, which I thought was hands-down the best "tentpole" film of last year, and so I have high hopes for his adaptation of Mockingjay (the weakest book of the trilogy). What strikes me most about this trailer is that the film appears to be in the vein of an action pic, whereas Catching Fire was more of a thriller and the first film was essentially a survival movie. District 13 isn't exactly a cinematic location and there's a lot of bunker-set scenes in the book, »

The Hunger Games instantly emerged as one of the most successful franchises of all time two years ago, and it seems like it’s drawing to an end only too soon, with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 arriving in just over two months’ time.
Jennifer Lawrence reprises her leading role as Katniss Everdeen, and everyone’s looking forward to seeing how it all progresses on the big screen from where Catching Fire left off last year. And with just weeks left on the clock before it hits, the studio has launched the main theatrical trailer.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay has premiered its first full-length trailer.
New cast additions include Natalie Dormer as documentary maker Cressida, Stef Dawson as Finnick's girlfriend Annie Cresta and Julianne Moore as President Coin. Watch Digital Spy's new interview with Claflin below:
The first instalment of Mockingjay will focus on a traumatised Katniss as she reluctantly becomes a symbol of Panem's revolution against the tyrannical Capitol.
Mockingjay - Part 1 will open on November 20 this year and Part 2 is scheduled for release on November 20, 2015. »
As timely as Laura Wade's acidic satirical drama Posh might have felt when it premiered at the Royal Court in 2010, its impact has been augmented in the four years of Coalition government that have followed, as Britain has come to be ruled entirely by the 1%. In adapting her own play for the screen, Wade has necessarily expanded its scope and thus diluted its bite, but this amorality tale about a barely-fictionalised Oxford drinking society still rings unpleasantly true.
"Filthy. Rich. Spoiled. Rotten," runs the spot-on tagline for Lone Scherfig's big screen adaptation, which centres on two Oxford freshers who are recruited to join the highly exclusive Riot Club, and become seduced and corrupted by its single-minded pursuit of hedonism. Miles (Max Irons) considers himself an outsider »
Claflin stars as Alistair Ryle, a first-year Oxford student from a wealthy family who becomes increasingly monstrous after he is recruited to join a legendary drinking society, which is based on the real-life Bullingdon Club.
Digital Spy sat down with Claflin last week to discuss embodying the very worst of the British class system, and put your user questions to him as submitted by Twitter.
The Riot Club is released this Friday (September 19). »
After the announcement a few months ago that Thea Sharrock would be directing the adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ Me Before You, it seems the adaptation now has its Will and Lou in the shape of Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke.
Moyes took to Twitter to announce the news. She was particularly excited about the casting of Clarke, it seems, tweeting ‘She is Wonderful. My dream Lou.’ and ‘I Have The Khaleesi!’.
— Jojo Moyes (@jojomoyes) September 7, 2014
Clarke is of course better known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones while Claflin is known more for his role as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and this November’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One.

Sam Claflin worked his ass off to get into fighting (and very hot) shape for The Hunger Games movies. So it's with great sadness that we report that the Brit actor's muscled physique may not be as chiseled and tight as it once was. It's been a "few months" since the Mockingjay movies wrapped, so… "I'm on a little bit of a break, a little downtime," Claflin told me at the Toronto International Film Festival when I asked how the body was doing. "I'm enjoying myself, everything that I've missed over the two and a half years nearly. I'm kind of catching up. Lots of friends, family and drinks to be ordered." Here's hoping his "break" »
