Cloud Atlas

13 December 2013 12:57 AM, PST

The creators of The Matrix team up with Run Lola Run helmer Tom Twyker for this massive, ambitious stab at bringing "David Mitchell's unfilmable novel"™ to the big screen. A megacast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving and Jim Broadbent cross characters, race, and gender in a sprawling six story six century epic, from the 19th century slave trade to the far flung post-apocalyptic future. You need to pay attention to the criss-cross, flash back 'n' forth 'n' back again plot, but for those willing to take the journey - and witness their favourite actors in a variety of wigs and false noses - there are wondrous sights to behold on the way up the mountain. »

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

12 December 2013 4:06 AM, PST

For his directing debut, Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black fuses Elmore Leonard with Raymond Chandler to create the most mischievous and violently funny thriller of the noughties. Robert Downey Jr is perfectly cast as the anti-hero/narrator caught up in a twisting and twisted La murder-mystery, while Val Kilmer is on top form as a gay private investigator who doesn't do camp… except when it comes to his ringtone. »

Director Paul Thomas Anderson lived up to expectations after Boogie Nights with this stunning, Oscar-nominated tale of interconnected characters who struggle with death and desperation, love, guilt and loneliness. Tom Cruise delivers a stunning performance as a manic sex therapist though William H Macy, Julianne Moore, Jason Robards and the great Philip Seymour Hoffman are all swept up in the epic sprawl. By turns witty, intense and surreal, this is a truly mesmerising portmanteau. »

Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow gets a trailer

12 December 2013 2:38 AM, PST

Cruisin’ for a futuristic bruisin’. The first trailer for Tom Cruise’s latest action vehicle, Edge of Tomorrow, has landed, and it looks madder and more explodey than anything in the Cruiser’s substantially explodey CV thus far. Edge of Tomorrow originally had the far superior title of - and we’re not making this up - All You Need Is Kill (based on the novel by Japanese sci-fi author Hiroshi Sakurazaka), and features a Groundhog Day-esque premise in which Lt. »

Johnny Knoxville's Bad Grandpa gets comfortable

12 December 2013 2:23 AM, PST

Get your kicks out of this adjustable bed clip from Johnny Knoxville's Bad Grandpa. Knoxville stars as an 86-year-old-man who takes his grandson on a trip across the States. With Knoxville at the helm of this Borat style flick, we can safely assume that there will be cringe worthy and life endangering stunts at the expense of unsuspecting victims, er, we mean public. »

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

12 December 2013 1:14 AM, PST

A tale of two towers and three adventures as a divided fellowship take different paths in their quest to destroy the One Ring. Despite climaxing in the spectacular Battle of Helms Deep and featuring an abundance of plucky hobbits, wise wizards, fearsome orcs, repugnant goblins and towering Ents, it's the wonderful Gollum who steals the show (and the ring) in the second part in Peter Jackson's superbses adaptation of Jrr Tolkien's legendary trilogy. »

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

11 December 2013 7:33 AM, PST

In the second marathon leg of Peter Jackson's three-part adaptation of The Hobbit the dwarves, led by Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), enter territory darker and more dangerous than the first by-the-Tolkien outing. With ever-more powerful Orcs hot on their little heels, they have to run the gauntlet of giant spiders, hallucinogenic woodland, capture by the Wood-elves and a white-knuckle white water barrel ride. Getting firmly into its stride, this looks more like a worthy prequel to The Lord of the Rings and boasts a worthy ally in elf warrior Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly). »

A culinary-inclined rodent heads to the world's gastronomic capital - Paris - to learn his trade in the kitchen of France's greatest chef.
