The story follows a woman and a pair of children who are blindfolded, and make their way through a post-apocalyptic setting along a river.

Nsfw ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Trailer Heads To America
There were seemingly two camps when it came to Matthew Vaughn’s genre mash “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” There were those who were pleasantly surprised and taken with the wildly careening film that had Colin Firth bucking his typical role of stuffy, upper class, sauve white guy to stuffy, upper class, suave white guy who kicks major ass set to the tune of “Freebird.” Then there were those who felt it was obscene, tired and poorly committed to its idea of being satirical when it refused to actually shake the restraints of a spy movie.

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Trailer: Julianne Moore Is the Evil Criminal Mastermind Of Our Dreams
“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” promises a lot of great things, including the sight of Channing Tatum in a cowboy hat cracking a bullwhip, but easily the best thing in the upcoming sequel is going to be a scene-chewing Julianne Moore as a psychotic criminal mastermind. The Oscar-winning actress rarely takes on deliciously evil characters, but she’s going full sociopath in “Kingsman” and it looks amazing.
“The Golden Circle” brings back Taron Egerton as Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, a secret agent who must stop Julianne Moore’s global entrepreneur Poppy from destroying the world. In order to defeat her plans, Eggsy and the Kingsman must team up with the Statesman, an American spy organization that includes the likes of Tatum, Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges.

Wild Bunch inks Us deal for Cannes title '12 Days'
Exclusive: Documentary capturing French psychiatric system premiered at Cannes.
Distrib Films Us has acquired Us rights to Raymond Depardon’s documentary 12 Days (12 Jours), capturing the stories of vulnerable psychiatric patients hospitalised against their will through the special court-room hearings deciding their fate.
The company’s founding co-chief François Scippa-Kohn did the deal with Eva Diederix, head of sales at Wild Bunch which is handling international sales. The film is being lined up for an autumn release.
Under a new French law introduced in 2011, any hospital admitting a person against their consent has 12 days to submit a detention application to a special judge. Before the introduction of the law psychiatrists handled the decision.
Some 90,000 French citizens are sectioned in this way every year. Veteran French photographer and filmmaker Depardon filmed 72 such hearings, focusing on 10 of the cases he witnessed for the documentary.
12 Days premiered in a special screening at the Cannes Film Festival this year to strong reviews »
The Snowman: serious film by serious people – or least spooky serial killer thriller ever?
The Snowman, which is due for release in October, absolutely drips with pedigree. It’s based on a Jo Nesbø thriller about a serial killer with a disturbingly unique calling card: he leaves snowmen next to his victims. Originally due to be directed by Martin Scorsese, it’s a movie from film-maker Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) that stars Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Jk Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Toby Jones, with a score composed by Jonny Greenwood. The message is clear: this is a serious film made by serious people. As its new trailer demonstrates, The Snowman is intended to be taken very seriously indeed.
That said, it’s got loads of snowmen in it. Loads of them. Which is a risk, »
