If BAFTA could hand out an award for oddest movie, it would surely be won by The Boxtrolls, which is the latest animated offering from Laika, producers of Coraline and Paranorman. This tale of a society dictated by cheese and overrun by cardboard-wearing creatures was in the running for Best Animated Film.
We spoke to directors Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable to chew the fat, or at least the rind, over what went into the making of this eccentric chapter in the history of stop motion animation. I’m a huge fan of the medium – my Dad used to be such an animator back in the day – and I was interested to hear what the pair had to say about the project, which appears defiantly old-fashioned in this age of CGI…

Sees no need to engage metaphor or dispense with cliché, so when you haven’t seen it before, you can’t believe what you’re seeing. And not in a good way. I’m “biast” (pro): I am desperate for movies about women
I’m “biast” (con): science fiction isn’t treated so well at the movies these days
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Oh my god, hooray! A space adventure with a woman at its center! And it’s Mila Kunis, who is awesome! She’s gonna be like a new Luke Skywalker, whisked away from a boring life on Tatooine– er, Earth for more exciting interstellar horizons beyond! Woo-hoo!
Yeah, not so much, as it happens. What happens is more like: Kunis (Annie, Blood Ties) gets drugged, attacked, chased, menaced, threatened, rescued, kidnapped, chased some more, rescued again. Rinse and repeat for a good hour and half. »

Whoever said that there’s no such thing as bad press knew what they were talking about. Despite the dismal reviews for the new film the Interview, the comedy about an attempt to assassinate Kim Jong-un hauled in $15 from online sales in a few days. The movie had very little buzz and low expectations before the controversy began. This proves that the best thing you can do to help a film is try to stop it.
Sony Pictures should be thanking the “Guardians of Peace”. The group of hackers who got Sony to temporarily withhold the film and then release it instead on cable, satellite and online, provided the best pre-release promotion that the film could possibly ask for. The Interview took in $ 2.8 million at the box office in its first four days, playing in only 330 small, independent theaters, and 15 million from online rentals and sales.
It’s highly doubtful »

UK cinema in 2015 has plenty to recommend it. Here are 36 UK films of all genres to look forward to this year…
Dig past the litterfall of Kray Brothers biopics and tales of nubile teens on camping trips gone wrong, and you’ll unearth plenty for the UK film industry to boast about in 2015. From sci-fi romps and thrillers like Robot Overlords and Ex Machina to dramas like High-Rise, comedies like War On Everyone, spy flicks like Spectre and kids’ films like Bill, there’s no shortage of inventive, highly promising cinema coming from these isles.
We’ve included a few choice co-productions in 2015’s pick of the year’s most interesting-looking pictures, which bolsters our list in both size and breadth (and mostly means we Brits can claim partial credit for ace-sounding dystopian flick The Lobster).
In alphabetical order then, here are the 36 UK (or UK-ish) movies we’re excited about seeing this year… »
