First UK Trailer For ‘The Best Of Me’ Starring James Marsden & Michelle Monaghan

8 hours ago

The Notebook pulled at the heart-strings of a generation and now we’ve got – what looks like – Volume 2 of that saga with another romantic drama adapted from a Nicolas Sparks novel, but this time with James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan taking those lead roles.

The Best Of Me is split across 20 years with the younger years telling the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend.

The younger lives are played by Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato, with the 20-years later roles being taken on by Marsden and Monaghan with direction by The Last Station and One Fine Day’s Michael Hoffman. I’m always eager to give every film a chance but visually, this looks tremendously familiar to The Notebook with the scenes they’ve chosen for the trailer but, »

‘Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair’ In Cinemas 2015?

8 hours ago

Seems like Quentin Tarantino was consistently dropping bombshells at San Diego Comic Con recently, as he hints at releasing Kill Bill Vol.1 and Vol.2 as one film, at cinemas in 2015!

It has been 11 years since Kill Bill Vol. 1 graced the big screens, and it has been common knowledge among fans that Tarantino has been dying to bring the two volumes together as a four-hour bloody epic, as it was originally intended to be.

The first was inspired by The Shaw Brother’s Kung Fu films, while Vol.2 has more of a Spaghetti Western theme, making them both stand alone Tarantino films. So will putting them together be worthwhile to see?  In addition to them being cut together, The Crazy 88 battle with The Bride (Uma Thurman) will be in color, which was turned to black and white for an 18 rating, due to its blood content. Also, included would be the extended »

Watch! An A-Maze-ing Trailer For ‘The Maze Runner’

10 hours ago

With all these strong young women of literature littering our screens, it’s nice to see the boys have a turn for once. Joining the futuristic, dystopian, survival genres of The Hunger Games and Divergent, we’re now about to enter the world of The Maze Runner. In it, a young man with no memory awakens in a big field with a bunch of other young men, surrounding this field is a huge wall that leads into a maze, only those who go in rarely return. Dylan O’Brien leads with strong support from a menagerie of recognisable young Brits.

We might be reaching saturation point with such films based on Ya novels, but The Maze Runner looks as though it could excel thanks to the very visual serving maze. The action sequences seem as though they could be riddled with tension, although it may be that this trailer has »

‘Lucy’ Takes On ‘Hercules’ For Us Box-Office #1

11 hours ago

After Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes ruled over the Us box-office for two weekends running it was about time someone challenged them for the number one spot. Its competitors were more than worthy but there could only be one winner…

Luc Besson’s latest outing Lucy saw off Brett Ratner’s Hercules by more than $15 million. Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson as the telepathic title character, opened in 3,173 cinemas across the country, earning around $44 million. Meanwhile, Hercules, featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the mythical legend, opened in 3,595 cinemas and raked in $29 million. To add insult to injury, Lucy cost $40 million throughout its production, while her heavily CGI-ed competition cost around $100 million – ouch! You can read our Hercules review here.

Here’s the Us top five from last weekend:

Lucy – $44 million Hercules – $29 million Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – $16.4 million The Purge: Anarchy – $9.9 million Planes: Fire & Rescue – $9.3 million »

Tim Burton Wants Eva Green To Run ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’

13 hours ago

When Eva Green appeared in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows it was one of those ‘How has this not happened before?’ moments. Burton was probably under the same impression, for he’s now looking to cast her as the lead in his adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. The story is a striking blend of narrative and archive photography and should make an intriguing project for the director. The maker of Edward Scissorhands shooting a movie about a group of dispossessed orphans being chased by monsters on a Welsh island? The idea could have been extrapolated from the sweat in his thinking cap.

Green is in talks to play Peregrine, a transmogrifying woman from the 1940s who watches over the younglings of the title. If everything is ironed out it’ll be another eye-catching role for this lovely yet unsettling actress, who is also due »

Swallows & Amazons Blu-Ray Review

14 hours ago

Director: Claude Whatham

Starring: Sophie Neville, Suzanna Hamilton and Virginia McKenna.

Running Time: 92 mins

Certificate: U

Adapted from the classic 1930′s novel by Arthur Ransome, Swallows & Amazons celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, and what better way to commemorate this than by releasing it beautifully restored on Special Edition DVD and Blu-Ray, for older and younger generations to watch.

The film follows four children on holiday with their mother at the Lake District in 1929. For many parents today this would come as a shock, as the mother allows them to sail in the small boat ‘Swallow’, to a small island and camp for a few days. They eventually come to realise the island is someones territory, and meet two girls who both look like they stepped out from Wes Anderson’s film, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. The girls sail the ‘Amazon’ boat, and soon both groups set up »

16 hours ago

Guardians Of The Galaxy hits cinemas on Thursday and we at Thn couldn’t be happier about its imminent release. Why? Because you, our loyal readers, finally get to see the film, a film that we think is something truly spectacular; we gave it a glowing five-star review (which you can see here).

Lea Michele To Appear In ‘Sons Of Anarchy’

16 hours ago

Sons Of Anarchy continues its run of wonderfully random guest stars as it has been revealed that Glee’s Lea Michele will be appearing in the final season of the Kurt Sutter created series.

Michele will be playing the character of Gertie, an empathetic truck stop waitress and single mother who connects with Gemma (Katey Sagal) during a difficult time. Michele joins Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson and Malcom-Jamal Warner as season seven guest stars.

The news of a Glee cast member joining the cast of the FX smash shouldn’t be surprising news to some, as Glee’s Emmy nominated director Paris Barclay is executive producer and principle director of Sons Of Anarchy (and will also be directing the episode Michele appears in).

Fox most certainly like to keep it in the family huh?

The final season of Sons Of Anarchy airs September 9th in the Us.

Win Richard Ayoade’s ‘The Double’ On DVD!

17 hours ago

With Richard Ayoade’s The Double available now to watch digitally, and out to own on DVD, Blu-ray on August 4th, we’ve got three to giveaway on DVD!

Director Richard Ayoade’s (Submarine) latest feature is an idiosyncratic adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s celebrated novella. Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams, Hannah (Mia Wasikowska). The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.

Watch the trailer:

To win yourself 1 of 3 DVD’s that we have to giveaway, just tell us what film was Ayoade’s directorial debut?

[Updated] Full Combined Concept Art Poster & New Still For ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’

18 hours ago

Now Comic Con has passed and the buzz surrounding Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy (read our review here) has temporarily subsided, it’s only natural that we bring you some news of next years biggest movie, Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Over in San Diego we’ve seen the release of a number of concept posters showing off some of the film’s major talents, as well as a still showing off Black Widow’s transportation of choice, a brand new electric motorcycle. The motorcycle, known as Project Livewire from Harley Davidson, is not intended for sale to the public, but just as an introduction to the future world of electric transportation. Obviously The Avengers are able to pull a few strings. You can check out Harley Davidson’s official announcement after a set of awesomely illustrated posters that will probably be far more impressive than any Photoshopped job in the future. »

CIA Thriller ‘Agent Storm’ Up Next For Paul Greengrass

19 hours ago

After the huge, deserved success of Captain Phillips, director Paul Greengrass is turning his attention to the true-life story of a former Islamic radical who became a double agent for the British and Danish.

We’re hearing that The Bourne Ultimatum man will be adapting ‘Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al Qaeda and the CIA‘. It’s not quite released yet, but will be later this year, and is written by Morten Storm, alongside Paul Cruickshank and Tim Lister. It tells the fictional-sounding story of his life as a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence, a quite unique tale indeed and will be produced by Scott Rudin with Sony Pictures.

It’s published in the UK on September 2nd and goes with these official words:

Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book »

Joe Cornish Offered King Kong Prequel ‘Skull Island’

20 hours ago

Some of the best news to come out of Comic-Con was from the wonderful guys at Legendary, who hinted at some details at Godzilla 2 as well as surprising us with news of a new King Kong flick titled Skull Island. Now hopefully this will all lead up to a King Kong versus Godzilla film in the future, but for now let’s focus on Skull Island. It is being reported that Attack The Block director and the Joe half of Adam & Joe, Joe Cornish, has been offered the chance to direct the hot property. Although Attack The Block is far from one of my favourite films, Cornish managed to do quite a bit with not a lot. On top of that, the writer of this year’s Godzilla, Max Borenstein, will script the film.

Skull Island will explore the origins of Kong and how he came to be worshipped as »

Dark & Alluring First Trailer For Daniel Radcliffe In ‘Horns’

28 July 2014 2:15 PM, PDT

After staring into the accused face of the Devil, we’ve got the official first trailer for the Daniel Radcliffe-starring Horns, directed by Alexandre Aja.  

Based on the novel by Joe Hill, Horns follows 26-year-old Ig Perrish (Radcliffe), who wakes up with an evil hangover to discover that his girlfriend (the ever brilliant Juno Temple) has been raped and murdered, but Perrish is the main suspect. There’s something else going on though as now he’s also sprouting horns from his head but they have a useful power, one that makes people confess their sins.

I haven’t read Hill’s book but the trailer paints a beautifully dark portrait and is set to open this Halloween, which seems perfect for the material. I’m also glad to see Radcliffe continuing to try and move away from the old days and this time he’s complete with an impressive-sounding American accent! »
