Have you ever been embarrassed, miserable, or disgustingly happy at a high school dance? Do you enjoy secretly DVR-ing High School Musical, even though you tell everyone you don’t understand the appeal of “Breaking Free”? (Which you totally do.) Are you a child, adult, or an in-between? Well, then chances are you’ll love Disney’s latest sure-to-be-tween-sensation Prom, which hits theaters April 29, 2011. Based on the trailer for the film — starring Friday Night Lights’ Aimee Teegarden and Thomas McDonell, looking very Heath Ledger-in-10-Things-i-Hate-About-You — it has everything: Romance! Fighting! Disco balls! Fire! (Wait, is this Carrie?!) A frightening »

With the teaser now in the rear view mirror and the first concept pics vanishing into the distance, the Disney/Pixar pit crew have decided to keep the fact that Cars 2 arrives next year in our minds by releasing a new image from the movie along with the poster.Breaking free of the confines of Radiator Springs, Cars 2 finds speed demon Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and tow truck best pal Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) competing in the World Grand Prix to discover if Lightning can hold his own against the planet’s fastest motors.But even as they race, the pair gets caught up in an international espionage case, with British agent spy car Finn McMissile, who appears on the right of the new pic above (anyone else want Finn to be voiced by Mr Pricklepants, Aka Timothy Dalton?) And it looks like the Pixar bods have »

Oh, Clare Balding, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Or at least allow me to gaze, rapt and grubby-kneed, from a roadside verge as you puff past on your vintage bicycle, thighs pumping like pistons, fringe bouncing like a blonde trampette in the Shropshire breeze. Such scenes are legion in Britain By Bike (BBC4), a robust, all-weather travelogue that finds the abundantly capable sports anchor gasping over hill and wheezing across dale on her "lovely hand-built Dawes Super Galaxy".
After last week's exertions in Devon, this second instalment featured a 28-mile ride through the Welsh borders – a journey first recorded by one Harold Briercliffe, an enthusiast whose 60-year-old Cycling Touring Guides provide the backbone of Balding's series.
The views were spectacular. »

Dearbhla Walsh's latest project, 'The Silence' will start a four night consecutive run on BBC on Monday, July 12th. The series, which filmed in Ireland earlier this year, stars Ifta winner Dervla Kirwan (Ondine) and Genevieve Barr in her acting debut.

Dublin's Screen Scene is currently in post production with Company Pictures' 'The Silence', an atmospheric drama for BBC directed by Emmy Award winning Irish director Dearbhla Walsh (The Tudors) and starring Ifta winning actress Dervla Kirwan (Ondine) that examines the witnessing of a murder by a deaf girl. Eighteen-year-old Amelia Edwards, played by deaf actress Genevieve Barr in her acting debut has, at the start of the four part drama, recently been fitted with a cochlear implant, enabling her to hear, but she struggles to accept that she has a place in the hearing world.

It's odd that I noticed, but it's been a while since we last heard "Breaking Free" and those other High School Musical hits. That's because the franchise's stars are busy moving on. Fans of the movie series are still following them through their respective careers though, and now that they've landed new projects it's a good time to track them down again.
The perfect Sundance film is "The Runaways", a film that is both provocative and haunting, a film that captures the mid-seventies with clarity and that beautifully explores the fascinating world of teen girl band The Runaways, fleetingly big at a time of social unrest.
The movie focuses on the often turbulent and protective relationship between guitarist/vocalist Joan Jett and lead vocalist Cherie Currie as they navigate a rocky road of touring and record-label dramas. The film beautifully chronicles the band's formation as well as their meteoric rise under the pervasive eye of an abusive manager.
"The Runaways" marks the feature directorial debut of video artist Floria Sigismondi who directs this riveting and hypnotic work from her own script, one that is both a sharply observed study of character, epoch and the purity of rock ‘n’ roil. Visually the film is strikingly gorgeous, one that cinematically explores the contrasts between »
