Check out the posters, trailer and synopsis below:
When charismatic terrorist Adam Qasim (Elyes Gabel) escapes from MI5 custody during a high profile handover, the legendary Harry Pearce (Peter Firth), Head of Counter-terrorism, is blamed. Disgraced and forced to resign, no-one’s surprised when Harry disappears one night off a bridge into the Thames…
With MI5 on its knees in the wake of the Qasim debacle and facing controversial reform, former agent Will Holloway (Kit Harington) is brought back from Moscow to uncover the truth they feared – Harry’s still alive. He’s gone rogue, and needs Will’s help. »

The dark romance revolves around Philip, a young orphan, who believes his mysterious, beautiful cousin Rachel may have been responsible for the murder of his beloved guardian Ambrose, also a cousin of theirs. As Philip plots his revenge, he finds his feelings complicated as he falls under Rachel’s beguiling spell.
The project is currently out to cast.
Michell most recently directed TV mini-series The Lost Honour of Christopher Jeffries, the true story of a retired schoolteacher who was wrongly accused of the murder of 25-year-old landscape architect Jo Yeates and vilified in the press, before being fully vindicated. »

Director: Stephen Daldry.
Running Time: 114 minutes
Synopsis: After discovering a wallet at the dumpsite where they work, three young boys in a Brazilian favela must work together to outwit corrupt cops and government officials, while risking their own lives.
The poster for Trash gives a positive and Slumdog Millionaire vibe. It looks bright and cheerful, when in actual fact, Daldry’s rather brilliant and surprising family film (despite the 15 rating) is more of a bittersweet look at childlike innocence in a world corrupted by the greed of adults.
The entire feel of the film is one of many mixed emotions and genres, which so easily could have failed miserably. It’s written by British romantic comedy legend Richard Curtis, yet has no romance and is closer to City Of God than Notting Hill. Taking »

Sky has announced details of two new dramas.
Stephen Mangan will star in new Sky Arts drama Birthday, playing a pregnant man awaiting the birth of his daughter.
Mangan said: "We've long known that Birthday would make a wonderful TV drama, and we're delighted that Sky Arts shared our vision.
"Now, for the first time, viewers are able to get right into the delivery room to witness the spectacle of a heavily pregnant man in all his hormonal, bloated, mammary-swollen glory; up close and (maybe a little too) personal."
Meanwhile, Sky Living will air The Five, »

Disclaimer: This review is in regards to the version released earlier in UK cinemas, which did not seem to feature Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani’s single “Shine”. As such, this reviewer can not vouch for the recently released song’s presence in any scene alterations for the North American release. I would, however, like to publicly request that Mr. Williams’ song “Happy” be pulled from the radio. Thank you.
A big screen, CG-assisted adaptation of Michael Bond’s beloved Paddington Bear book series could have gone so horribly wrong, becoming yet another offender in the line-up of pandering kids-aimed film atrocities like Yogi Bear, Garfield, and The Smurfs. Thankfully made with clear love for the material and smart execution from writer-director Paul King, Paddington is instead a welcome breath of fresh air in a family film market that, »

Everyone’s favorite bear, Paddington, is coming to life in theaters soon. And when a bear travels all the way from darkest Peru to 32 Windsor Gardens in Notting Hill, naturally he would be completely famished. So it’s best to have a spectacular tea waiting for his arrival: macarons, marmalade cream cheese tea sandwiches and of course, marmalade bear scones, all for a very special Paddington tea party! Mini macarons in a variety of flavors add beautiful colors to the table. Sweet...

In something of a surprise this morning, Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel emerged with the most BAFTA nominations at a total of 11. The movie had its world premiere in Berlin last year, meaning that on BAFTA night February 8, it will be one year and two days since its debut. It was released in Britain in March 2014 and I hear its screener was one of the first to arrive in British Academy members’ mailboxes at the start of the campaign season. The film was warmly embraced in the UK and went on to earn just under $20M. One voter suggested this morning, “People don’t forget great movies.”
Conversely, insiders suggest awareness was low on Selma. In a rather sizable snub, it was left out of the list unveiled today. That film’s screener, I’m told, was one of the last to arrive and the theatrical release is not until February, »

[Brightcove "20559164" "" "" "auto"] As she preps for baby No. 2, Princess Kate has another more immediate milestone. The pregnant princess turns 33 on Friday, and is "spending the day privately," says a palace source. She is not in London and is believed to be at her newly renovated country home, Anmer Hall, with husband Prince William and 17-month-old son Prince George. The couple enjoyed their first Christmas at the 10-bedroom mansion located within Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham estate in Norfolk, 110 miles north of London, hosting Kate's parents, Carole and Michael, and siblings Pippa and James. The Middletons also quietly joined the Queen and her extended family »

Exclusive: British beauty and fashion blogger-turned-vlogger Zoe Sugg made publishing history in the UK when her first book, Girl Online, was released in November. It set a record for the biggest one-week sales of a debut novel with over 78K copies flying off the shelves in Britain. An auction is now up and running for rights to adapt the fictional story of a 15-year-old blogger’s love, friendships, family and anxiety which take her from England to New York. The list of suitors for Girl Online is said to be about 10 deep. I’ve heard the pool includes at least two U.S. studios, along with names like The Weinstein Co, Lionsgate UK and Working Title also cropping up, as well as some other big and small independent producers from both sides of the pond.
I hear first proposals are in to Penguin Books, in association with social media talent managers Gleam, »
