Frightfest 2016 Line-Up Announced

12 hours ago

The line-up for the 17th annual Frightfest has been announced, read on for more…

We’ve barely recovered from last year’s event but Frightfest is almost upon us again. The world of horror will descend on the British capital from Thursday 25th August, running until Monday 29th August. This year the event moves out of the London West End for the first time in its history, and will instead take place at the Vue in Shepard’s Bush. The move is primarily motivated by building work at the original location, but does mean that there will be a lot more space, and more space means more films.

Last year’s event showcased 76 of the best new genre films on the market, a very impressive number. Never ones to rest on their laurels, the Frightfest organisers have an enormous 62 films on display this year, giving the audience a little more space to breathe, »

12 Times The Movies Let Us Down In 2016

16 hours ago

So, the first part of 2016 is officially at a close. Thank goodness for that. After the awesomeness of 2015, which officially ended when we kicked back to take in Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in December, the first six months of this year have been absolutely abysmal – probably the worst for over a decade.

2016 has delivered dud after dud – for every Deadpool, there has been a Dirty Grandpa and for every Captain America a crappy Criminal, a film title that actually managed to live up to its name.

In this special article, I recount the 12 times the movies let us down in 2016.

Dirty Grandpa

Let’s kick things off with probably the worst film of the year. Dirty Grandpa was simply atrocious from start to finish and repulses in every way imaginable. It does the unheard of – it manages to make us dislike Zac Efron and destroy the memory of »

Peter Jackson is working on a secret Steven Spielberg project

21 hours ago

Five years ago Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg collaborated on The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn, and although sequels were promised, we’ve heard nothing since then.

Well, Spielberg is on the massive promotional tour for The Bfg where he spoke with the The New Zealand Herald. He touched on the Tintin movies, which still look to be happening, but not quite yet.

“Peter was so busy with ‘The Hobbit’ that it took him away from ‘Tintin’ and he’s doing another film for my company now. It’s a secret, nobody knows about it. Then after that he’ll do ‘Tintin.'”

What could it be?

The first film in the Tintin series, which was 100% CGI captured, took nearly $300 million around the world back in 2011, more than enough to warrant a sequel.
