Tinsel And Time Travel For Jenna Coleman As ‘Doctor Who’ Contract Extended *Contains Spoilers*

17 hours ago

Viewers of Doctor Who‘s festive special got an extra present with the news that Jenna Coleman’s Clara is jumping aboard the Tardis for another year. The actress kept media and fans guessing right up to the last moment, and the revelation was announced at the press screening for Last Christmas before being unveiled to the nation in the closing minutes. Showrunner Steven Moffat had some fun depicting Clara as an elderly woman (surely every cast member in the show has been in Oap prosthetics now), suggesting Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor was to leave her behind. But it turned out to be a hallucination, convincing the Time Lord to invite her for another round of adventures. Coleman remarked:

It’s wonderful. I get a whole other series of stories with the Doctor and I couldn’t walk away with the story being unresolved. There is so much more to do. »

Unbroken Review

22 hours ago

 Director: Angelina Jolie

Cast: Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Jai Courtney, Takamasa Ishihara

Certification:12A

Running Time: 137 minutes

Synopsis: After a near-fatal plane crash in WWII, Olympian Louis Zamperini spends a harrowing 47 days in a raft with two fellow crewmen before he’s caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp…

With the festive season well and truly here Sony exec Scott Rudin must of thought it appropriate to give that Angelina bird a good roasting, only to have his own goose cooked thanks to an embarrassing press leak. Despite the ‘brat-gate’ email scandal turning all involved cheek’s rosier than Santa’s, Thn is sure that the old adage any publicity is good publicity (try telling that to Rogen and Franco right now) and will no doubt see droves of Team Jolie supporters flock to the multiplexes this Boxing Day to see the actor’s third directorial feature; Unbroken. »

Exodus: Gods and Kings Review

22 hours ago

Director: Ridley Scott

Cast: Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley

Running Time: 150 minutes

Rating: 12A

Synopsis: The defiant leader Moses rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton take on two of the most iconic roles from biblical stories, that of Moses and the Pharaoh, in Ridley Scott’s new grand epic Exodus: Gods And Kings and, though the story itself is far from cheerful, Scott has opted for a decidedly dark approach here. Moses is no fairytale hero and Rhamses is no pantomime villain.

The personal stories of the major characters are given almost as much importance as the impressive special effects. Of course, what most people are interested in here is the special effects – which is unsurprising really, given the many spectacular elements contained within this notorious story. »

Electric Boogaloo ‘The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films’ Review

23 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST

Director: Mark Hartley

Featuring: Molly Ringwald, Dolph Lundgren, Marina Sirtis, Elliott Gould, Mimi Rogers, Alex Winter, Bo Derek

Running Time: 107 minutes

Synopsis: A one-of-a-kind story about two-of-a-kind men who (for better or worse) changed film forever.

If you like your films brilliantly awful, then you would have seen some of Cannon’s work. They did the Death Wish sequels, the legendary He-Man movie Masters Of The Universe and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, a film so cheap that they used an office block next to Milton Keynes train station as the Un headquarters. That’s absolutely true and anyone from Milton Keynes will tell you so. When they’re not too busy crying. They also made America 3000, for which the trailer includes the line, ‘It is nine hundred years after the great nuke, and the role of women in society has changed, much to the displeasure of men. »

It’s Fast And Furious For Kirk And Crew As Justin Lin Beams Up To ‘Star Trek 3′

22 December 2014 11:30 PM, PST

Justin Lin is associated with high octane fare, having helmed four entries in the Fast And Furious franchise… Captain Kirk and his team have certainly seen many a scrape… But in what some might view as a surprise move, Lin is heading to Starfleet Academy as he takes over from Roberto Orci as director on Star Trek 3. Not much is known about what the threequel will involve, though it’ll probably see Lin reuniting with John Cho (Sulu) – the pair previously worked together on Shopping For Fangs and Better Luck Tomorrow.

While action fans are doubtless well-catered for, a slight note of caution can be sounded when it comes to the interplay between the crew. Lin has brought us dramas like Annapolis with James Franco but is he the right man to succeed J.J.Abrams, who delivered intelligence as well as explosions? The answer may lay in an unlikely place. »

Watch: Margot Robbie & Will Smith In Slick New Trailer For ‘Focus’

22 December 2014 1:53 PM, PST

Channeling the uber-cool essence of Steven Soderbergh’s stylistics, this second huge trailer for Focus, bought to us by the Crazy, Stupid, Love team of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, shows us a lot in quick succession but still leaves enough for us to ponder over.

The casting of Margot Robbie after her stunning performance in The Wolf Of Wall Street is inspired and we also get to see Smith continue to carve out those more suave roles, with additional deeper tones. Here, he stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who gets romantically involved with Margot Robbie’s character, novice con-artist Jess Barrett. As he’s teaching her the tricks of the trade, things get too close for comfort and he breaks it off. Three years later, they meet up again…

Marvel Get Us Square-Eyed With ‘Daredevil’ And ‘Agent Carter’ Picfest

22 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST

One of the world’s all-conquering comic brands has a raft of entertainment headed for the small screen and it’s about time they started unwrapping the goods. So with Christmas imminent, now is a good time to yank the bow on a payload of shots from two anticipated offerings – Daredevil starring Charlie Cox, and Agent Carter with Hayley Atwell. The Dd package sees Cox’s heroic alter ego Matt Murdock as he walks amongst an unsuspecting public…

 

As well as another shot of him in the black costume, disappointingly reminiscent of the “sock on his head” approach of 1989’s The Trial Of The Incredible Hulk

 

The good news sartorially is that the definitive red outfit will be donned. Co-starring Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin), the show is released on Netflix via ABC next year. »

Retaining the basic set-up from the original TV series, the film centres upon American CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and his Kgb counterpart Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) who are forced to set aside their longstanding hostilities and work together on a joint mission to save the world from a crime organisation hell bent on destabilising power through proliferating nuclear weapons and technology.

Racing against time, the duo must follow Gaby Teller (Alicia Vikander) who is the daughter of a German scientist central to the criminal organisation’s master plan. Directed by Guy Ritchie who also wrote the screenplay with his Sherlock Holmes collaborator Lionel Wigram, the film also stars Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Debicki, and Jared Harris.

Edgar Wright On Remembering Billie Whitelaw: 1932 – 2014

22 December 2014 5:12 AM, PST

Thn were sad to hear the news that prolific actress Billie Whitelaw had passed away aged 82 yesterday, and as well as offering our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends, we wanted to share this wonderful memory piece from Edgar Wright, the director who got to work with Billie on her very final film in Hot Fuzz in 2007.

Billie was a star of the stage and screen for 64 years having making her debut treading the boards in 1950, before also sharing her work on the big screen in 1953. Hitchcock directed her in Frenzy (1972), and you’ll also know her in the likes of The Omen (1976), Quills and many, many more titles in television, theatre and cinema. She was also a muse to Samuel Beckett, one of the most important and original writers of all-time, and had a very distinct influence on his work and he loved her work in return.
