From Sing Street to Star Wars Spin-off – Ian Kenny joins the cast of the Han Solo project

1 hour ago

Author: Zehra Phelan

With production currently underway on the as yet untitled LucasFilm Han Solo movie, the list of impressive names on the cast list is growing bigger by the day. Today’s reveal has seen Sing Street breakthrough artist, Ian Kenny, join the likes of Woody Harrelson and Donald Glover in the film which is due for release in 2018.

However, Ian Kenny may have been revealed as another new cast member details of the character he may take on are being firmly kept under wraps until we are deemed worthy of this snippet of information.

The Dublin star played Tj Deegan in Fair City for six years before departing in 2012 and went on to receive high praise for his performance as antagonist Barry in last year’s John Carney hit Sing Street, which in our opinion was robbed of even a nomination for best original song at this year’s Oscars. »

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie trailer takes silly to new heights

1 hour ago

Author: Zehra Phelan

From the makers of Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar, Dreamworks animation, comes an all new animated movie adaptation of Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie with Ed Helms and Kevin Hart heading up the voice cast. From its first trailer, nothing but trouble is heading their way.

Captain Underpants is based on the book series of the same name, and centres on a pair of school pranksters who aggravate their principal to the point that he moves to separate them into separate classes, vowing, “I’m going to annihilate your friendship.” The book series will be remembered by those who grew up in the late 1990s and early 2000s for its silliness and total dedication to all things excrement, toilets, wedgies, underpants and snot, so expect a ton of toilet humour.

Graduation Review

3 hours ago

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Since the turn of the 21st century, Romanian cinema has thrived, as a new wave of filmmakers crafting distinctively naturalistic, minimalist endeavours, mostly casting a harsh light into working class society. And they’ve been recognised too, with Child’s Pose taking home top prize at the Berlinale back in 2013, and Christian Mungiu’s 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days doing the same in Cannes by winning the Palme d’Or. The helmer of the latter production returns now with his latest picture Graduation, and it’s completely, both tonally, and narratively, within this same movement, as fans of the Romanian New Wave are sure to find plenty to admire about this nuanced character drama.

Adrian Titieni plays Romeo Aldea, a doctor who strives, tirelessly, to give his teenage daughter Eliza (Maria-Victoria Dragus) a life he never had, hoping she will pass her forthcoming exams and be granted a »
