As pop luminaries queue up to appear on their forthcoming LP, we talk to surviving members of the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop, responsible for the theme music for many classic shows, including Doctor Who
Listen to the band's exclusive new remix of the Dr Who theme tune here
As musical legends go, they're a funny bunch. Five well-turned-out but unassuming gents, harrumphing and making small talk, they could easily be retired accountants at the golf club – were it not for the fact that they're busy wiring together enough vintage synthesisers and tape machines to make a young hipster techno producer faint with joy, all while the most peculiar boinging noises emerge from various speakers. Oh, and their manager's on the phone to Hot Chip's people, while the drummer from the Prodigy is sitting in the corner tapping his sticks.
As per usual, though, the veteran tinkerers are mostly concerned with matters electronic. »

Described by esteemed filmmaker Terry Gilliam as the final part of his dystopian satire trilogy, following Brazil and Twelve Monkeys, The Zero Theorem is an uneven endeavour that feels thematically outdated despite its futuristic setting. Gilliam's visceral prowess constantly bolsters the fable, which follows Christoph Waltz's corporate worker bee Qohen as he tries to solve a mathematical formula that could unlock the meaning of life. Clearly The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy was out of print.
Increasingly reclusive, Qohen has to contend with his patronising boss Joby (David Thewlis) and the soul-sapping machinations of the 'Management' and Matt Damon's amusingly attired boss. But the apparently amorous affections of a mysterious femme fatale called Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry) pose a huge conundrum to the increasingly beleaguered drone.

Earlier this year came news that Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds is returning to ITV with Thunderbirds Are Go!, which prompted us to scribble a wish-list of what we'd like to see in the new series. A role for Grandma Tracy (tick!) and the return of the original series' Parker (sort of tick! Close enough anyway) were two such items.
Here are the actors announced as voicing Anderson's well-loved characters in this modern update...
David Graham as Parker
Bringing continuity from the original series to the new is David Graham, the voice of Brains, Gordon Tracy and more in the sixties Thunderbirds. Graham is to bring Lady Penelope's chauffeur Parker to life in this iteration of the series.
Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope

ITV's new series brings in Rosamund Pike as voice of Lady Penelope, with David Graham returning as chauffeur Parker
However, some things remain the same: David Graham, who provided the distinctive nasal tones of Lady Penelope's chauffeur, Parker, in the original 1960s children's series, is to reprise the role.
Pike, the actor best known for her role as a double agent opposite Pierce Brosnan in James Bond film Die Another Die, said she was "very excited to bring Lady Penelope's wry wit and taste for adventure to a new generation".
The new series, which will be called Thunderbirds are Go!, also sees the return of Graham as the voice of Parker. Graham voiced Parker, along with three other puppet characters, in the original series »

We here at NextMovie aren't just about the big-budget blockbusters. We're shallow, but we're not that shallow. (Fine, we're pretty shallow.)
April 17 begins the Tribeca Film Festival, where "little films that could" that really aren't that little and often star big-name actors are submitted to be judged by Hollywood's finest discerning eyes and also those of Eva Longoria.
Eva has to watch many films, but we think you guys would be specifically interested in the following ten.
Defying the ever-popular "girl works at a sex shop in upstate New York in order to fund her completely stagnated poetry career" stereotype in movies, "Adult World" stars Emma Roberts as protege and John Cusack as mentor as the former is forced to take a post-graduate job in an intercourse parlor (which is way more fun to say than "sex shop"). Eventually, Roberts' character bonds with her sexified (read: »
