First Quad Poster For British Spy Movie ‘Spooks: The Greater Good’
4 hours ago
Spooks has been going for quite some time on television in the UK – ten seasons actually, but still, a feature length movie still came as a bit of a surprise. Spooks: The Greater Good will arrive in UK cinemas on the 8th May. We’ve just received the official UK quad poster for the spy movie, which you can check out below… followed by the synopsis.
When charismatic terrorist Adam Qasim (Elyes Gabel) escapes from MI5 custody during a high profile handover, the legendary Harry Pearce (Peter Firth), Head of Counter-terrorism, is blamed. Disgraced and forced to resign, no-one’s surprised when Harry disappears one night off a bridge into the Thames…
With MI5 on its knees in the wake of the Qasim debacle and facing controversial reform, former agent Will Holloway (Kit Harington) is brought back from Moscow to uncover the truth they feared – Harry’s still alive. He’s gone rogue, »

Brand New Trailer & Character Posters For ‘Straight Outta Compton’
5 hours ago
Sure, we had the first trailer and look at Straight Outta Compton last month but here’s more for a vitally important biopic in both music and the lives of these true music legends.
Music has a power like no other and if you’re great, it can change the world around you in any way possible. N.W.A. were unlike anyone else and not only had a huge rise to fame but became the astonishing true story of influencing and revolutionising pop culture alongside their success. This wasn’t your standard tale though as in the mid 1980s Compton in California had some of the toughest streets in the USA. But then along came Eazy-e, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Mc Ren and DJ Yella, who gave an explosive voice to a generation with brilliant, brutally honest music that rebelled against the abusive authority around them.

‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ Netflix Series Confirmed For 2016 Premiere
8 hours ago
With the highly anticipated Daredevil only days away, Netflix and Marvel Television have once again excited fans with news of another of their collaborations, this time confirming the 2016 launch for Marvel’s Luke Cage, featuring Mike Colter in the lead role.
Considering that the second of Netflix/Marvel’s four confirmed series – A.K.A Jessica Jones - is slated for release later this year and that it sees Colter’s Cage making an appearance alongside star Krysten Ritter, it comes as no real surprise that Luke Cage’s solo outing won’t be making it to our screens during 2015.
Nonetheless, confirmation of a 2016 release for Luke Cage will be reason for celebration by many, with the news reaffirming Netflix and Marvel’s commitment to delivering all of their planned comic-based shows in a reasonable timeframe; great news for those waiting patiently for Iron Fist or The Defenders mini-series.

Christopher Walken Joins ‘Eddie the Eagle’
8 hours ago
You probably remember Michael Edwards, better known as Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards during the 1980s, he was the Olympic skier who wasn’t quite good enough and kept finishing last. But as the only Brit in the 1988 Winter Games, he ended up appealing to underdog fans everywhere.
Fox Studio picked up the story for the big screen treatment a few weeks ago, and now Christopher Walken is on board too. He’ll be joining Taron Egerton, who plays Eddie, and Hugh Jackman, who plays Eddie’s coach. Dexter Fletcher is directing, while Matthew Vaughn is producing the feature.
Eddie The Eagle looks set to hit our screen in April 2016.

Arthur Darvill Blasts Over To The CW’s Arrow/Flash Spin-Off
10 hours ago
While many DC Comics fans are directing their attention towards the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad, The CW have been quietly building their own shared superhero universe on television.
After the spectacular ratings and attention received by the epic crossover between Arrow and The Flash, The CW are clearly intent on replicating this success on a long term basis. The currently-untitled companion series to both shows, has so far been met with an equal amount of curiosity and enthusiasm. The brand new series will collect together a team of fan-favourite secondary characters from both Arrow and The Flash, to form a weekly superhero adventure show unlike any other. The spin-off will (so far) star Brandon Routh as The Atom, Victor Garber as (one half of) Firestorm, Caity Lotz as (the currently deceased) Black Canary, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold and finally, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave. »

Guardians Of The Galaxy & Wolf Creek Collide For ‘The Belco Experiment’
13 hours ago
Before the cosmic behemoth of Guardians Of The Galaxy came along, its scribe/director was very much a “Gunn” for hire, writing anything from the Scooby-doo franchise to a book on legendary exploitation producer and mentor Troma. James Gunn’s next project isn’t a million miles away from the latter though, as he’s announced The Belco Experiment, a horror movie to be directed by Wolf Creek’s Greg McLean.
This taut-sounding tale of corporate savagery is a literal death match, as the hapless drones of American Belco in South America are given a highly unorthodox memo – kill or be killed!
Gunn has issued a statement via Facebook, where his trademark warped sense of excitement bursts off the screen:
I cannot tell you how passionate and excited I am about this project! It’s a script I wrote a few years ago, for which I have always had a deep love. »

The Fast & The Furious: The Road So Far (Contains Spoilers)
14 hours ago
Come on, admit it, you secretly like the Fast And Furious franchise. Starting way back in 2001 the series teamed high speed street racing, over-the-top action set pieces and one of the most iconic bromances in history. It also launched the careers of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, both of them carving out a path in the acting arena.
Now onto its seventh film, fans still don’t seem to be getting bored. If anything, each film gets a slightly bigger and better reception than the one before (with a couple of exceptions). I remember going to a public screening of Fast Five on an Easter Sunday and the audience were so enamoured that it received a round of applause during the end credits. The sixth brought fans to a fever pitch, tying up some loose ends that had been niggling at people. Its explosive ending confirmed that a seventh film was on the way. »

While We’re Young Review
15 hours ago
Director: Noah Baumbach.
Running Time: 97 minutes
Synopsis: A middle-aged couple befriend a couple in their 20s.
While We’Re Young has one of those annoyingly vague titles that just knows everybody will relate to it in some way. The ‘We’re’ is a universal we, and already the film is trying far too hard to include the audience before the reels even begin to roll. Baumbach’s latest manages to be both a funny and charming look at aging, and also a condescending pile of drivel too. It’s quite the accomplishment, but something more and more films aimed at the middle ages are doing.
Stiller and Watts play a married couple without a child. Although their close friends, recently with, are the annoying types who declare how their lives have suddenly changed and were incomplete beforehand, »

‘The Mortal Instruments’ To Spread Its Wings On ABC Family
31 March 2015 4:45 AM, PDT
Having failed to set the big screen ablaze a couple of years ago with City Of Bones, it’s hoped TV will prove a more fertile territory for an adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments book series.
Shadowhunters is to be produced by ABC Family. It focuses on Clary Fray, a teenage girl who’s about to find out she’s part-angel and has a secret family history of tracking down ancient monsters. Also featuring a range of classic creatures such as werewolves and the ubiquitous vampires, Clare’s saga has been a smash on the bookshelves, selling over 35 million copies around the world.
The author is naturally enthusiastic about having the brand extended to the lucrative live action market, releasing the following statement:
I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the ‘Shadowhunters’ to life. As a huge fan of longform television drama, I »

‘Scream’ TV Series To Be Re-titled?
31 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT
The Horror genre has undergone a variety of changes over the past few years, with a large portion of those changes occuring as a result of the rise of technology and social media. However, the horror genre has always been especially unique, largely due to the fact that the brand is easily reinvented and reinterpreted for each generation. Wes Craven’s Scream franchise, is something that has cleverly poked fun at the varying trend’s and characteristics of the genre, whilst also paying homage to the classic elements of what has made horror so appealing for almost a century.
However, after four fantastic instalments of the genius meta-horror franchise, the announcement that MTV were developing a television show was met with a mixed response. Although remake’s and reboot’s are a common and heavily prominent aspect of the entertainment industry (something the series itself has referenced), the idea can »

Watch Now: Buckle Up For a Hella Ride With New ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ Teasers
30 March 2015 10:23 PM, PDT
It appears that hell hath no fury road like a warlord scorned – and boy do we want to join the ride!
Plot hole drive-bys be damned. Mad Max Fury Road may have a single linear storyline (Immortan Joe [Hugh Keays-Byrne] has a harem of youthful ‘Wives’, Furiosa [Charlize Theron] flees Joe’s tyrannical citadel with ‘The Wives’ and crown jewel Splendid [Rosie Huntington-Whitely] in tow, Joe wants ‘The Wives’ back), but its well developed, unique post-apocalyptic characters like the fanatically half-mad Nux (Nicholas Hoult) and action sequences live-scored by Coma-Doof Warrior (iOTA) from the back of an attack vehicle, gives the live-action film an excitable, pulsating rhythm.
So buckle up and check out the latest Mad Max Fury Road images and four new teaser trailers Retaliate, Chaos, »

Fast And Furious 7 Review
30 March 2015 3:29 PM, PDT
Director: James Wan
Running Time: 137 minutes
Synopsis: Following the explosive action of Fast Six, Dom (Diesel), Brian (Walker) and the rest of the crew find themselves stalked by Owen Shaw’s older, meaner brother, Deckard Shaw (Statham).
The Fast And The Furious films have evolved greatly over the years, starting out with their humble beginnings in 2001 with a Point Break in cars plot, it has since gone on to become something much more. From five onwards, and the addition of action star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, there’s been less driving more fighting, and Seven ramps that up another notch. The latest petrol fuelled venture upgrades the usual racing with elements of Mission Impossible and a revenge flick.
Statham’s inclusion is a fanboys wet dream and the Brit muscle does not disappoint. »

30 March 2015 6:03 AM, PDT
Not content with global fame as Arya Stark in the international fantasy drama series, she’s also starred in the one-off docu-drama Cyberbully and was cast as one of the leads of Carol Morley’s drama The Falling. As well as being a three-time Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee, in February of this year she was awarded with a Shooting Star Award at the Berlin Film Festival. Not bad at all.
