We've plucked 13 potential little beauties out of the 2013 UK film line-up, feat. sci-fi, comic-book, horror, comedy, thriller & more...
Look ahead to the UK films coming out in 2013 and you’ll see a diverse landscape of filmmakers, genres, actors, budgets and ideas. Next year brings us something new from Joanna Hogg, and something else from Danny Dyer. Irvine Welsh’s Filth will almost certainly live up to its title, but the Absolutely Fabulous film? We’ll see.
Al Pacino’s playing King Lear, and Stephen Mangan’s playing Postman Pat. Shane Meadows is making a film about the Tour de France, and Nigel Cole is making a film about an otter. Steve Coogan will be a porn baron, Bridget Jones will have a baby, Nick Frost will dance the salsa, Martin Freeman will save Santa, and Sean Bean, bless the man, will probably die.

The title of the movie might be Man of Steel, but the star of the latest clip from Zack Snyder’s franchise reboot isn’t actually Superman. It’s Clark Kent, the alien boy who grows up to be a (hipster-bearded!) man, learning along the way some tough lessons about power, responsibility, and the cost-benefit bottom line of using his super strength to save all his schoolmates from a submerged bus. Which makes it official: Man of Steel isn’t just going to be another superhero movie. It’s going to be everyone’s — yours, mine, Hollywood’s — favorite kind »

Tom Cruise is a busy boy. He has two big-budget sci-fi movies coming out in the next few years, and one of them is “Tron: Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski’s “Oblivion” (formerly “Horizons”), which Kosinski turned into a comic book before getting the movie off the ground. Now check out the first poster for “Oblivion”. Besides this one, Cruise has “All You need is Kill” with Doug Liman also on the way. Of the two, I’m really looking forward to the “Groundhog Day” meets “Starship Troopers” that is “All You Need is Kill”, but “Oblivion” doesn’t sound too bad. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part »
This week, Peter Travers highlights the new Franklin Delano Roosevelt sort-of biopic Hyde Park on Hudson. Taking place over a weekend at the 32nd President's upstate New York getaway, the film follows Fdr (Bill Murray) as he has an affair with his distant cousin Daisy (Laura Linney) and receives a visit from the King and Queen of England, who want the U.S. to join the war effort. "All this is like, 'Ugh, please, are you kidding me?'" moans Travers, though he applauds another spectacular performance from Murray that »
Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is a network weatherman, sent to the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to cover Groundhog Day, when a local groundhog emerges from hibernation to predict whether there will be six more weeks of winter. Caught out by a blizzard he had predicted would miss the town, Phil is forced to spend the night but then awakens to find that it is Groundhog Day again. And then again. And again. And again.
There is not an awful lot that is terribly new to say about Groundhog Day, but I will do my best. It feels like a Christmas film because of all of the snow, its channelling of an “It’s a Wonderful Life” vibe and Phil’s Scrooge-like arc, but it is set in early February. Its title has become shorthand for any surreal experience where you feel like you are repeating the same experience and »

Bill Murray doesn't only manifest his omnipresence through impromptu games of kickball – it is there to see in his work
Those of us who believe Bill Murray to be God are quite sincere in our belief. We're not just saying it to be nice. What otherwise are we to make of his majestic inaccessibility, his lack of an agent or a publicist or even a telephone number? At the same time, there is his mysterious omnipresence, as he drops out of a clear blue sky to play kickball on Roosevelt Island while wearing a woolly hat, plays the tambourine in Texas, drives golf carts around Stockholm, dances the Conga in Cannes, or joins karaoke parties in New York with pretty Dutch girls to buy everyone Chartreuse and sing Elvis Presley's Marie's the Name.
As the New York Times noted this week:

In 2003, William James Murray (better known to those who haven't spent hours reading his Wikipedia page as Bill Murray) starred in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," a poignant, somber romantic comedy that spotlighted the budding relationship between an aging film star (Murray) and the lonely wife of a photographer (Scarlett Johansson) in Tokyo. Murray was nominated for an Oscar for said performance, but he ultimately lost to Sean Penn's turn in "Mystic River."
At one point, he also did the Garfield movies.
But herein lies the massive injustice. Bill Murray should have been nominated for an Academy Award for every other movie he's done. There. We said it. The following is a comprehensive list of Murray movies where the Academy unconscionably overlooked his performance, starting from the very beginning of his illustrious career.
Role: Tripper Harrison

Production of All You Need Is Kill, based on the Japanese graphic novel, took over a London landmark at the weekend
Filming for the upcoming Tom Cruise science fiction movie All You Need Is Kill closed down London's Trafalgar Square on Saturday. Studio Warner Brothers brought in tanks to shoot several action scenes while tourists watched eagerly from a safe distance.
The film co-stars Britain's ubiquitous Emily Blunt, along with Aliens star Bill Paxton, Charlotte Riley and Jonas Armstrong. Based on the titular Japanese young adult novel, it sets up a Groundhog Day-style premise where a rookie lieutenant colonel named Bill Cage (Cruise) is forced to fight the same losing battle against alien invaders again and again, experiencing horrifying death countless times. Having started out without a single day of combat experience, Cage slowly begins to morph into a battle-hardened veteran with the skills and knowledge to potentially fend off the extra terrestrial Mimics. »

Currently shooting in a number of locations throughout London, Doug Liman’s All You Need Kill is the big-budget blockbuster that will see Hollywood icon Tom Cruise’s Lt. Col. Bill Cage endure death multiple times when he’s caught in a time-loop during a war with alien invaders. The film is being touted as Source Code meets Groundhog Day (minus the laughs) as Cruise’s heroic soldier attempts to better his skills and learn new weaknesses about the intergalactic enemy each time.
We’ve previously brought you the first official still a few weeks ago, with Cruise in a mech-suit and now we have a host of set stills from the sci-fi action/thriller based on the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and co-starring Emily Blunt, Charlotte Riley, Bill Paxton, Jonas Armstrong and familiar British actor Tony Way (soon to be seen in Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers).

Hong Sangsoo remains an enigma of South Korean cinema. While Park Chan-wook, Kim Ji-woon and a host of copy cat directors fill big box theaters with copious amounts of violence and stylized shock tactics (to often brilliant effect, let’s admit), Sangsoo continues to work the art house crowd with his classically influenced brand of off-beat humor that subtly plays with the conception of form on the fly, calling into question the validity of previous actions. The 2011 Cannes (Un Certain Regard) selected The Day He Arrives sees its familiar characters continually wander the awkward landscape between opposing sexes that the auteur seems to be so fascinated by, but it is in the seemingly minute details in which Sangsoo’s playfulness becomes the real fascination.
Like many of the Korean helmer’s previous works, his lead seems a piece of the filmmaker himself, a former director by trade, a bit of »

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 - only her second season on the series - with Donald Driver. The Australia native is blogging for People.com about competing with Gilles Marini in the current all-star season. It's week eight and we've got one more week until the semi-finals. This is when everyone really starts to get aches and pains and just gets lethargic. Occasionally I'll have a glass of wine when I get home at night, but usually to unwind, I hop straight into bed. I'm exhausted. There's no »

Tom Cruise is armoring up in the upcoming sci-fi thriller “All You Need is Kill.” In an action-sci-fi twist on the "Groundhog Day," Cruise plays a futuristic warrior named Bill Cage, who must relive the same battle against an alien invasion force over and over again. With each incarnation, Cage -- and his companion Rita (Emily Blunt) -- get better and better at fighting the aliens known as The Mimics. And he has a pretty nifty-looking suit of armor to help him out. Take a look at Cruise in the film: As you can see, Cruise is decked out in a »

Doug Liman has directed Vince Vaughn doing up his flies at the side of the road in Swingers and Matt Damon tearing up Paris in a conked out mini in The Bourne Identity, but there's nothing in his back catalogue quite like this new All You Need Is Kill pic: Tom Cruise running away from a massive explosion in a mech suit.For those not in the know, All You Need Is Kill is based on the critically-acclaimed novel of the same name by Japanese sci-fi author Hiroshi Sakurazaka, which sees its hero Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) forced to fight (and die) over and over again as contact with alien invaders (known as 'Mimics') traps him in a hellish time loop.This may strike some as being rather similar to the likes of Groundhog Day and Source Code (except, you know, with aliens), but as you can see from the astonishing pic above, »
In the near-future, apparently all you need is a killer, Aliens-inspired robo-suit… We have the first photo of Tom Cruise in his new sci-fi flick All You Need is Kill, with the fiery image showing Cruise charging toward the camera with a raging grimace.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the new film from director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith) finds Earth under attack by a superior alien race called Mimics, forcing the outmatched human race to band together for one last stand.
Cruise plays a combat-inexperienced officer forced into a suicide mission whose direct physical contact with the Mimics propels him into a Groundhog Day-style time loop, dooming him to die over and over again – and discover the key to defeating the enemy.

'All You Need Is Kill' is going to be one hell of a crazy film when it comes out, think 'Groundhog Day' with mechs. Let that settle in for a second and then look at this first picture from the set. This photo comes from Sanspo via Ann. As you can clearly see it shows Mr. Cruise in a mech suit running from fire in the very rare time that he won't be dying, you see the movie is about a soldier who in a battle with aliens gets caught in a time loop where he re lives the same day over and over again and more often then not dies at the end of each day. See what I mean when I say crazy! Based on a Japanese novel byHiroshi Sakurazaka, the movie will also star Bill Paxton, Emily Blunt and Charlotte Riley. Set to »

Tom Cruise is currently filming All You Need Is Kill, which is based on the sci-fi ‘light novel’ written by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and illustrated by Yoshitoshi Abe. The story takes place in the near-future and revolves around a human soldier (Cruise) who is killed during a battle against an invading alien army. However, because he came into direct contact with one of the extraterrestrials before his death, Cruise ends up stuck in a time loop where he relives the final day of his life over and over.
Scroll on down for the first official screenshot from All You Need Is Kill, along with additional information about the adaptation of Sakurazaka’s novel (which, for the record, was published after Groundhog Day but before Source Code hit theaters).

As you can see, the photo shows Cruise who plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage (likely Keiji Kiriya in the original novel) clad in a powerful mecha suit from head to toe while running away to avoid explosion.
Cage is a soldier who was killed on his first mission, but direct physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop, and reincarnating over and over again into the battle – each time he reincarnates, he gets better and more skillful at battling the alien ‘Mimics’.
