The film follows the epic journey of Mija, a young girl who must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named ‘Okja’.

The Netflix original filmm which debuts on the streaming service in April, stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Giancarlo Esposito, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins and newcomer Seo Hyun An.

Netflix doc. Five Came Back, featuring Spielberg, Greengrass, Coppola gets a trailer

9 hours ago

A new Netflix documentary Five Came Back hits the streaming service at the end of the month, and we have the very first trailer to share. The three-part series is adapted from Mark Harris’ best-selling book, “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War,” and is directed by Laurent Bouzereau.

Five Came Back tells the extraordinary story of how Hollywood changed World War II – and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the interwoven experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. To guide viewers through the different personalities, interweaving chronologies and globe-trotting locales, the Five Came Back team turned to the voices of five modern cinematic masters: Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan. »

Trolls 2 a go at Universal for 2020

9 hours ago

Universal have a vision for 2020 and have greenlit a sequel to last year’s break-out animation hit Trolls. The sequel to the film, which saw Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake lead the voice cast as trolls Poppy and Branch, will hit cinemas on April 20th, 2020.

There are no details as to who will direct the film as yet – the original’s director Mike Mitchell has signed up for The Lego Movie Sequel, so his availability may be limited, but both of the aforementioned actors are said to be returning.

The original film was even Oscar-nominated – it was up for the Best Song Oscar award this year for Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” We’d expect the sequel to follow the music-themed nature of the first film, and we certainly hope that Timberlake is involved with that once again following his huge success in producing the soundtrack for the first film. »

Theatre Review: Ghost The Musical (UK Tour)

9 hours ago

Ghost The Musical review (UK Tour): A romantic stage adaptation of a modern classic film which is very well executed…

Ghost The Musical review by Katey Thompson, March 2017.

Lovers Molly (Carolyn Maitland) and Sam (Andy Moss) buy their first apartment together in the ‘up and coming’ Bronx district of New York, and quickly set about doing it up.  The chemistry between the lead couple is immediate, they spark off each other and get passionate in the classic clay-pot throwing scene.  The initial scenes are rattled off fairly quickly, leaving only a little time for enjoying the build up to the fateful walk after dark.  Willie Lopez (Leo Sene) drags the story into the dark underbelly of New York when a bold Sam is shot as he tries to protect Molly from the armed robbery. The shock of the scene and the sadness felt by Molly is heart wrenchingly depicted »

Train To Busan: A Zombie Spotter’s Guide

22 hours ago

The annals of horror history are infested with the living dead. And most movie fans would conjure up the same mental picture of a zombie: slow, groaning, hungry for human brains.

But like anything else – living or, erm, living dead – the zombie comes in many forms. It’s evolved and changed, taking on new traits and characteristics with each new generation of seminal zombie movies.

With Train to Busan released on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD this week, we’ve put together an essential guide for anyone who enjoys a bit of “zombie spotting”, detailing the most common – and rarest – types of undead brain-munchers out there.

“The Voodoo Classic”

As Seen In: White Zombie (1932)

Defining Characteristics: With their cloaks, big moustaches, and pirate-style baggy pants, they look more like extras from a Gilbert & Sullivan production than your standard reanimated corpse.

28 February 2017 1:02 AM, PST

We were all treated to a five-minute Alien: Covenant short just last week, which followed the first proper trailer which was festively delivered on Christmas Day. Well, it looks like we may be getting a new Alien: Covenant trailer very soon indeed.

According to Trailer Track, the new promo for the film is going to be attached to prints of Logan Stateside when it starts to roll out this coming Thursday (2nd March), so expect an online debut either just before or afterwards. The word is that there will be a green-band version, and indeed a harder R-rated red-band version.

The Lego Movie 2 could be a space musical!

28 February 2017 12:27 AM, PST

Work is nearly underway on The Lego Movie 2 (aka The Lego Movie sequel) with Trolls helmer Mike Mitchell taking the directing reigns. The Lego Batman Movie‘s Chris Mackay, who was the animation supervisor and co-director on the first movie, was a recently a guest on the Shanlian On Batman podcast where he spoke about the behind-the-scenes development of the sequel. It sounds like we’re in for something quite different to the original…

“Lego 2 is going to be this big musical and space action movie. They need a lot of the writing, a lot of development, not only with script development, but development with songwriters. So it was very ambitious to get that movie out.”

The first movie was obviously full of music, and featured an Oscar-nominated theme song “Everything is Awesome,” but it sounds like there will be lots more in the next movie.

Stephen Moyer to lead X-Men TV spin-off pilot over at Fox

28 February 2017 12:11 AM, PST

True Blood actor Stephen Moyer is set to lead the X-Men TV spin-off pilot over at Fox. The Hollywood Reporter says that the actor will join the already cast Jamie Chung and Blair Redford in the planned series from writer Matt Nix and director Bryan Singer.

The trade says that the ‘action-adventure project focuses on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.’

Moyer will play the character of Reed, an ambitious attorney trying to balance the demands of his job at the Da’s office with his responsibilities to his family.

The pilot will shoot this year with a hope that the network takes it to series. Unlike the now-running Legion, the series is expected to take place within the X-Men movie universe. »

The Academy releases a statement regarding Best Picture mix-up

28 February 2017 12:05 AM, PST

If you were with us on Sunday night/ Monday morning and stayed up to watch the Oscars, you’ll be well aware of the issues that arrived when Best Picture was announced around about 5am UK time. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took to the stage to announce the evening’s big award, which, through no fault of their own, was wrongly given to La La Land, before eventually being awarded to the true winner, Moonlight.

Academy accountants PriceWaterhouseCoopers yesterday took full responsibility for the mix-up, and issued an apology:

“PwC takes full responsibility for the series of mistakes and breaches of established protocols during last night’s Oscars,” the statement issued yesterday read. “PwC partner Brian Cullinan mistakenly handed the back-up envelope for Actress in a Leading Role instead of the envelope for Best Picture to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Once the error occurred, protocols for correcting »

Reilly.  The international ensemble cast also includes Tian Jing, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Thomas Mann, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell and Eugene Cordero.  Vogt-Roberts directs the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, John Gatins, Dan Gilroy and Derek Connolly.  “Kong: Skull Island” is produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni with Mary Parent. »

Detour review: Dir. Christopher Smith (2017)

27 February 2017 3:24 AM, PST

Detour review: Horror maestro Christopher Smith returns with a thriller in the vein of True Romance.

Detour review by Kat Hughes, February 2017.

Detour review

Director Christopher Smith first caught our attention with Creep. The film saw Franka Potente trapped overnight within the bowels of the London Underground, stalked by something dangerous. He followed that with SeveranceTriangle and Black Death, a trio of films strongly within the horror genre. Next, he rather oddly made Christmas comedy Get Santa, an ill-advised career step, but his latest offering sees him step back into the darker heart of cinema.

Harper (Tye Sheridan) is a promising young law student. Sadly, his mother is in a coma following a car accident with his step father Vincent (Stephen Moyer). Worse still, she’s about to be taken off of life support and Vincent looks set to inherit everything. Believing that Vincent had a hand in the accident, »

27 February 2017 3:06 AM, PST

Netflix have dropped the first teaser trailer for their upcoming film Bright, which will debut on the streaming service later this year.

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds.  Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it.  Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.

The Netflix original film stars Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, »
