An ironic pink heart dots the ‘i’ in troubled-teen tale “The Violators” — perhaps the sole playful touch in this stern, striking debut from British novelist-turned-helmer Helen Walsh. Treading ground initially derivative of works by Andrea Arnold and Pawel Pawlikowski before going on its own genre-tinged tangent, this study of adolescent desire and alienation across class lines takes its time nurturing a tensely ambiguous relationship between its two young female leads — alertly played by newcomers Lauren McQueen and Brogan Ellis — only to squander a measure of that intrigue on a blunt third-act twist. Early berths in Edinburgh and Karlovy Vary portend a healthy festival run for this auspicious arrival, though distributors may hold back.
The picturesque English county of Cheshire is not typically associated with hard urban realism, so it’s fitting that Walsh has chosen it as the locale for a story in which the working classes seem pointedly disregarded even by their nearest neighbors. »

Big Brother's latest evictee Marc O'Neill certainly stirred things up while he was in the house, but his time was up last night as the public chose to boot him out.
Marc got on the phone to reporters this morning to chat about which of the housemates are boring, why he's standing by his friendship with Helen, and what he regrets about his time in the house...
There was a lot of shock from the housemates and the viewers when you were evicted. Are you chuffed people were so surprised?
"Yeah. It was good, but confusing as well. I don't know why they did vote me out if I didn't get negative stuff on social media, because that's all I can go by. But you know what, I had fun. I'm glad I went when I did. I was in there just to have fun, I wasn't in there to win, »

Yesterday, on perhaps the hottest day in the UK since records began, Thn made the journey to East London to visit the capital’s newest film studio facility, Peacock Film Studios in Canning Town. I had the opportunity to catch up with owners Jonathan Sothcott, producer of recent action film Age Of Kill and We Still Kill The Old Way, and his business partner Billy Murray, who you’ll also recognise from huge roles on the classic television police drama The Bill and as Johnny Allen in Eastenders.
Jonathan and Billy gave me a tour of their brand new studio, and then spoke about their upcoming slate of movies which the new studio will facilitate in the coming months.

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram for his latest peek behind-the-scenes of the currently-in-production X-Men: Apocalypse, posting the following image with the caption “Today! #Xmen #apocalypse awakens”…
So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

Has it really been 30 years since Back to the Future first arrived in cinemas? The '80s classic is one of those films that stands firm under repeat viewings, retaining its humour, heart and on-point performances from Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd and co. Simply put, there isn't a frame out of place in Back to the Future.
Though Robert Zemeckis's film still feels as fresh as ever, the world has changed dramatically across the three main periods the Back to the Future series spans. Digital Spy digs deep into the history books to find out how the world looked in 1955, 1984, and where we are now.

While it's not a surprise that Universal is eager to see if they make Vin Diesel's "Fast & Furious" money printing magic happen in other movies, history suggests audiences don't always follow the actor to other films that don't involve him driving a car. But $1.5 billion in bank for "Furious 7" ain't nothing to sneeze at, and Universal hopes to mount another franchise around Diesel. Read More: Box Office: 'Furious 7' Hits $1.15 Billion A few years back it was announced that "Skyfall" writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were going to put their pens to a big screen version of the classic TV series "Kojak." And things have been quiet since, but the project has new forward momentum with Variety reporting that Philip Gawthorne ("EastEnders," "Waterloo Road") hired to take a new crack at the screenplay. Basically, development continues, but we'll see if all the pieces come together for this. »

Hapless Robbie has become a fan favourite over the years, but Gaffers himself has been entertaining us in the meantime in various ways. Here are a few highlights:
1. EastEnders: Wellard and well unlucky in love
When you think of Robbie Jackson, you probably instantly think of Wellard, one of the best soap dogs of all time. Aside from his friendship with the loyal mutt, Robbie actually had quite a lot of genuinely dramatic storylines, including having to work as a road sweeper for years.
His girlfriend's dad sent him to hospital after accusing him of rape, while he had a strained relationship with his estranged father. He didn't possess the womanising powers of his popstar counterpart, and had to call off his first engagement after she cheated on him. »
Dean Gaffney is returning to 'EastEnders'. The 37-year-old actor will reprise his role as hapless Robbie Jackson - who he played for 10 years until 2003 - for a brief stint leading to the departure of his on-screen mum Carol Jackson, who is played by Lindsay Coulson. Dean said: ''Dom [Treadwell-Collins, the soap's executive producer] decided Robbie kept missing out on cancer storylines and funerals and it was time to come back. ''I would actually surrender me coming back for Lindsey to stay as she is such a great actress. It is a shame she is leaving but I am sure she will »

Pam St. Clement went ''ballistic'' at a railway worker who joked that he thought she was dead. The former 'EastEnders' actress reportedly told the Chiltern Railways employee to ''f**k off'' after he jokingly claimed he thought she was dead because her character Pat Butcher was killed off by bosses of the BBC One soap in 2012. He said: ''Pat Butcher? I thought you were dead.'' The 73-year-old actress was apparently in no mood for jokes as she's said to have looked ''disgusted'' at the joke and started shouting at the man, who is believed to be a big fan of both her and »

Way back in 2012 it was announced that Vin Diesel would be taking on the role of NYPD Detective Lieutenant Theo Kojak for a big screen remake of the classic 70s TV series starring Telly Savalas, and now it’s being reported that the film has secured a new screenwriter.
According to Deadline, British scribe Philip Gawthorne (EastEnders, Holby City) has signed on to pen a new draft of Kojak, taking over from Skyfall screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Universal is planning Kojak as a starring vehicle for Diesel, with hopes to launch a character-driven franchise.

Big Brother is just around the corner - we have an eye, a theme and a launch date! But while we're excited about that, it also means Celebrity Big Brother is drawing ever closer, so our thoughts naturally turned to who might be heading into the house this summer.
We've already heard that we could be in for a UK vs Us theme this year, but that's nothing without housemates, so we've rounded up the rumours - from the likely to the... not at all likely. Read on to see who might be popping in...
Who? "The world's first supermodel", Janice used to be a very outspoken judge on America's Next Top Model. She's been on I'm a Celebrity, and also hit the headlines recently after alleging that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her.
The rumour: Janice has been rumoured to be going into the house for ages now, »
Former soap stars are making up to four times the amount of current cast-members for personal appearances. Todd Carty - who played Mark Fowler in 'EastEnders' from 1990 to 2003 - is charging up to £10,000 while the BBC One soap's longest serving star Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) only makes between £2,500 and £5,000 per appearance, The Sun newspaper reports. Other former stars of the east London-based soap including Tamzin Outhwaite and Ross Kemp - who played Melanie Owen and Grant Mitchell respectively - would cost in the region of £15,000.

The idea of Vin Diesel inheriting Telly Savalas’s iconic role as Lt. Theo Kojak fills us with both the idea of intriguing possibilities and the nagging image of Kojak saying “Who loves ya, baby?” while enjoying a lollipop as a car careers off a rooftop. Still the one-man movie machine remains committed to taking it on, and has writer Philip Gawthorne working on a new draft of the script.Universal – which we imagine will indulge almost any whim of Vin’s these days given the potent box office for Fast & Furious 7 – is backing the project which at one point the actor (according to his Facebook page) wanted Ang Lee to direct. We’re not there by a long stretch, but development is continuing, with playwright and EastEnders/Casualty veteran Gawthorne scoring job after job in Hollywood. He’s already at work on the Cube remake for Lionsgate and »
Lindsey Coulson has quit 'EastEnders'. The 54-year-old actress - who has played Carol Jackson in the BBC One soap on and off since 1993 - has revealed she is ready to ''move on'' following her latest five year stint. She said: ''I've had a fantastic time playing the formidable Carol Jackson and although I'll miss everything about 'EastEnders', I feel the time is right for me to move on. ''I've been involved in so many wonderful stories as Carol.'' Lindsey is set to film her exit over the next few weeks with her final scenes scheduled to air later in the year. However, 'EastEnders' »
