Made up of three scenes that focus on three important Apple product launches, Trainspotting and Trance director Danny Boyle teams with scribe Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) for Steve Jobs, with Michael Fassbenders stepping into shoes of the titular technology pioneer, and the below trailer promises that we’re in for a hell of a ride. Fassbender is on top form as Jobs, as is an impressive supporting cast that includes Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, and Jeff Daniels. The trailer also shows that it won’t be glossing over the fact that as brilliant as he was, Jobs was also incredibly driven, and wasn’t afraid to rub people in his business, and personal life, the wrong way. Boyle has always impressed, and over the last few years he’s knocked it out of the park with each movie. I have the feeling much won’t change here. »

Universal Pictures has released the first full trailer for Steve Jobs, the film starring Michael Fassbender, directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, Trainspotting) and written by Academy Award-winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Moneyball, A Few Good Men). You may recall that Sony released a one minute Steve Jobs teaser trailer during […]

Scream Factory never lets up, do they? While all of their output isn’t pure gold (I’m still recovering from Tentacles), the fact is that the majority of the films that they release are given such a hands on approach to the film and special features to go with that to make most genre fans happy. Just this year, we’ve seen great releases of Mad Max, Class Of 1984, and countless others, and before the year is over, we’ll be getting new editions of The People Under The Stairs and The Sentinel. Out today, in a brand new Bluray release, is Neil Marshall’s 2002 werewolf action film debut, Dog Soldiers, a film that is not only worth picking up just for the film itself, but for a brand new set of special features that really further illustrates how much time and effort Sf spends giving fans what they want. »

Yesterday we brought you some comments from Ewan McGregor suggesting that he’s keen to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a future Star Wars movie, and now the actor has been speaking about another of his former roles, revealing that he’s open to another outing as Mark Renton in the long-rumoured sequel to the 1996 cult classic Trainspotting.
“I would be up for it,” states McGregor. “I’ve said that to Danny [Boyle]. Everybody has talked about it and speculated about it, but I don’t if it’s happening yet. I’ve not seen a script and I don’t know if there is one. It’s been a long, long time.”
McGregor had previously distanced himself from any possible Trainspotting reunion, owing to a fallout between himself and Danny Boyle after he lost out on a role in The Beach to Leonardo DiCaprio. However, it seems that is all in the past now, »

Ewan McGregor says he'd be very happy to return to the "Star Wars" franchise and is excited about J.J. Abrams upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Appearing at the Edinburgh film Fest at the Lyceum Theatre (via The Daily Record), McGregor says:
"I'm excited as everyone else and am looking forward it seeing it. It's not a fanatical thing. I'm really pleased I'm part of the legacy of it and happy to see it and I've seen the trailer and it looks like they've absolutely nailed it."
With at least one of the anthology spin-off films looking to explore the period of events between the prequel and original trilogy, the possibility is there for McGregor to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in some capacity. It's a possibility that McGregor is open to:
"I'd be happy to do the story from episodes three where I finish up and Alec Guinness starts. »

Well before he famously failed to steer Anakin Skywalker away from the dark side of The Force in the Star Wars prequels, Ewan McGregor made his first big impact in Danny Boyle.s darkly humorous 1996 junkie romp, Trainspotting. Nearly two decades later, amidst some apparent bad blood with the director, the possibility of a return is promising. In an interview with a publication from his native land, The Scotsman, McGregor fielded the often-asked question regarding a Trainspotting sequel. Expressing that his long-held animosity with Danny Boyle has been left in the past, McGregor even expressed a willingness to jump on board the potential sequel. According to McGregor: I would be up for it, I.ve said that to Danny. Everybody has talked about it and speculated about it, but I don.t know if it.s happening yet. I.ve not seen a script and I don.t know if »
He said: “I think it might be extraordinary to see a sequel 20 years after the original.”
Ewan admitted he’d already spoken to the acclaimed director about making a ‘Trainspotting 2‘ movie, but insisted he doesn’t know whether it will happen.
He shared: “I would be up for it, I’ve said that to Danny.
“I haven’t seen any script yet or anything and I don’t know if there is one. There is a big idea that it might happen but I »

The Scottish actor revealed that he was definitely "up for it", and that there was no longer any "bad blood" between him and Boyle after a high-profile fallout in the late 1990s.
"It might be the film that brings me back [to Scotland]," he said at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. "I would be up for it, I've said that to Danny. Everybody has talked about it and speculated about it, but I don't if it's happening yet. I've not seen a script and I don't know if there is one.
"It's been a long, long time. I just think I've changed my opinion about it. We've all moved on »
The actor says he has changed his mind on taking on the role of Renton again and that any bad blood between him and director Danny Boyle has now passed

Star Wars: Rebels is back, with nods to the original films, and some menacing villainy from Darth Vader himself. Here's Cameron's review...
This review contains spoilers.
2.1 The Siege Of Lothal
Season one of the latest Star Wars animated spin-off series came to an exciting and memorable end earlier this year. Not to mention a damn good one too. The Rebels gang had been joined by fan favourites from The Clone Wars, Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Clone Trooper Captain Rex, and one of the franchise's most iconic characters ever, Darth Vader.
It was a surprised-filled finale which took Star Wars: Rebels to new heights, and one wondered if the show could keep up the heart-stopping momentum. Thankfully, this one hour opener (well, a Us hour - it’s just over forty minutes) demonstrates aptly that these animated adventures have got much to offer. So much more.

Rumours were swirling around a few weeks ago that Ewan McGregor may be lured back to the Star Wars saga, to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi. McGregor played the role in George Lucas' prequel trilogy of movies, and given that Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One (due in 2016) is set to set between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope, there had been talk of crossing some actors over.
Chatting at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, McGregor said that "I'd be happy to do the story from episode three where I finish up and Alec Guinness started".
"It's not a fanatical thing", he said. "I'm really pleased I'm part of the legacy of it and happy to see it, and I've seen the trailer »
Edinburgh: Scottish actor gives talk about 22-year acting career including new role as Jesus in Last Days In The Desert.
Ewan McGregor revealed to an audience at the Edinburgh International Film Festival (Eiff) on Sunday that he would be willing to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi to tell the story of Stars Wars between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back should Disney ever wish to do so.
The comments came during an on-stage interview in which the Scottish star looked back over the highlights of his career thus far and chose his words carefully on the subject of the forthcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
The actor seemed not to be the most rabid of fanboys and declared: “I’m not a fanatical person.”
Still, he said he was impressed by the trailer - “It looks like [Jj Abrams] he absolutely nailed it” - except for the lightsaber’s updated design.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Robert Carlyle has been a favorite actor of mine since I first saw him in Trainspotting and The Full Monty. He has since appeared in dozens of films in leading and supporting roles. He currently chews scenery on ABC's fairy tale series Once Upon a Time but is now debuting his first turn as film director with the black comedy The Legend Of Barney Thompson. First time directors don't always get to help... Read More »

The opening night premiere at this year’s Edinburgh film festival is a gruesomely comic yarn about a barber caught up in a string of serial killings directed by and starring Carlyle – with Emma Thompson as his mum
The Edinburgh film festival has acted astutely in giving its opening slot to Robert Carlyle’s feature directing debut: this will make a big night for one of Scotland’s most beloved acting sons, while the film itself is a lovingly crafted tribute to the city at the other end of the M8. You might call it a peace offering to Glasgow, in this era of burgeoning national identity.
Carlyle, best known for firecracker performances in films such as Trainspotting and The Full Monty, here cuts a somewhat more morose figure. He plays Barney Thomson, the central figure of a black-comic serial-killer yarn that has had its titled nudged from its source material, »

Tfi: a nod to 90s nostalgiaWhat happened to Friday night TV?
Anyway, thanks for joining me. If you want to follow me on Twitter, I’m @StuHeritage. If you don’t, I’ll try not to lose any sleep. Ok, bye.
And that’s it. That’s really it. More clips of when the show used to be good – all of which we’ve seen elsewhere during this episode, strangely – and we’re done.
“Can you remember when Tfi Friday started?”
“In the 1990s? No.”
If the studio audience has gone a bit quiet, »

The Program International Trailer. Stephen Frears‘ The Program (2015) international movie trailer stars Ben Foster, Chris O’Dowd, Jesse Plemons, Lee Pace, and Dustin Hoffman. The Program‘s synopsis: “An Irish sports journalist becomes convinced that Lance Armstrong’s performances during the Tour de France victories are fueled by banned substances. With this conviction, he starts hunting for evidence that will expose Armstrong.”
What I like about this trailer is Ben Foster, and how easily I’m able to suspend my disbelief that he is playing Lance Armstrong at the height of his performance-enhancing drugs debacle. What I don’t like is how made-for-tv this feels. However, story is most important, and this seems to be based on a nonfiction book by David Walsh (whom O’Dowd is playing) that was adapted by John Hodge – who wrote the Trainspotting script. So who knows, this could be quite interesting, after all. We’ll see. »

Ben Foster darts through the hills of France and around accusations of doping as Lance Armstrong in the new trailer for The Program, director Stephen Frears' upcoming biopic about the rise and fall of the disgraced cyclist.
In the trailer's opening moments, we hear Armstrong espousing his love of cycling and delivering, in a voiceover, a delightfully smarmy platitude about perseverance: "Inside each and every one of us is something more potent and powerful than any drug: It's called, 'the will to survive.'" Soon after though, he's seen »
When Lance Armstrong was found to have perpetrated one of the biggest ‘doping’ scandals in the history of professional cycling in 2013, it seemed as though the phrase ‘How the mighty have fallen’ could have been coined just for him. Revered as one of the greatest sportsmen of his generation, Armstrong had survived cancer and gone on to, seemingly, become a world champion several times over. However, while millions worshipped him as a hero, Irish sports journalist David Walsh remained suspicious, and that is the story told in The Program.
Based on the book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong, by Walsh – which was published in 2012 and adapted by Academy Award nominee John Hodge (Trainspotting) – The Program details the 13 years spent by the journalist trying to expose the reality behind Armstrong’s phenomenal ascent to the top of the sport of international cycling, including seven Tour de France victories. »
