Film-makers have tried sex, murder and intrigue, and yet that most intellectual of spectator sports remains remarkably difficult to depict on screen
• Computer Chess: watch the trailer
Throw a rock at the sports genre and you'll hit a film about baseball or football, or hockey, or racing. Odds are, you won't strike a film about chess. Chess isn't generally considered a stadium filler (although it can be). It's perceived as a game for eccentric intellectuals and elderly historians. It doesn't have the glamour or sex appeal of more sedentary sports, such as pool, as demonstrated by Paul Newman in The Hustler. Chess won't even fit snugly in to other genre films, where the banality of cards, for example, naturally lends itself to a seedy, gambling gangster underworld (Rounders), the exotic highlife of a casino (Casino Royale), or even more piquant, a combo »

Man of Steel is the latest movie to be mocked by Cinema Sins.
The Henry Cavill superhero movie is light-heartedly torn apart, with the 71 things 'wrong' with it being listed and narrated in rapid fire.
'Sins' include plot contrivances, Jor-El's presence, use of the Wilhelm scream and Superman's fight with Zod.

Lightning struck the worldwide box office this weekend as Disney-Marvel’s first fall release, “Thor: The Dark World,” amassed a thunderous $180.1 million, of which an estimated $86.1 million came from domestic theaters.
With a global cume already at $327 million after last weekend’s whammo international debut, “Thor: The Dark World” is on track to eclipse its predecessor’s global total handily. The original grossed nearly $450 million worldwide during summer 2011.
“The Marvel guys have done something even within the last three years unrivaled in the industry, achieving the consistency of great films, as well as box office success,” said Disney distribution topper Dave Hollis.
“It’s a great blessing to have these characters and the Marvel brand as part of the Disney family,” he added.
“The Dark World” marks the first fall release for Marvel since having been acquired by Disney. The sequel also is the first Marvel property released by Disney without any outside studio participation. »

I hate box office prognostication. This isn't a column whose goal is to handicap or accurately guess how much Ender's Game is going to make. Our collective fascination with the balance sheet of Hollywood blockbusters is something I abhor. Nor do I want to contribute to crucifying a movie prior to release. I will however opine on a film's marketing, particularly in an instance where it seems like a real hindrance to the finished film. That very well seems the case for Ender's Game which comes out this Friday. The film has been beleaguered by bad press and hampered by terrible marketing. What once felt like a potential 'can't miss' hit feels like it's about to crash and burn on opening weekend.

Ever since yesterday's (September 12) announcement that Jk Rowling and Warner Bros are venturing back into the wizarding world together for a new series of Harry Potter-inspired films, we've been riding a wave of Potter nostalgia.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them won't be an unfamiliar title for any true fan; it's one of the required textbooks for first-year students at Hogwarts, and a real-world version was published by Rowling in 2001.
We're keen to hear your views on the prospect of more big-screen magic from Rowling and Warner Bros, but we also want to reminisce about just how great the original film series was in its finest moments.
Here are ten of Digital Spy's highlights from the eight movies.
1. The Sorting Hat (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone)
Chris Columbus's opening duo got the Potter franchise off to a somewhat shaky start, laboriously honouring the books in lieu of much flair or depth, »
The Harry Potter books may have infinite horcruxes, as it seems to be the franchise that never dies.
Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling sent fans into a frenzy Thursday with the announcement that Rowling’s wizarding textbook, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” will be turned into a movie with the book’s fictitious author, 21-year-old Newt Scamander, as the focus.
However, Rowling made it clear that the book and the upcoming movie is neither a sequel nor a prequel to the seven-book megahit and the eight-movie run that raked in $7 billion over a decade. Does that mean that Harry, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley will be absent from the upcoming movie?
“The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry’s gets underway, »

Thursday’s announcement of the expanded partnership between J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. — inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” — comes 14 years after the first formal agreement to launch the Harry Potter franchise.
Two years earlier, David Heyman’s London office had discovered Rowling’s first book. A chronology to a stunningly successful partnership:
1997: “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” published on June 30. Heyman begins efforts to secure the film rights. It would be re-named ”Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in the U.S.
1999: Warner Bros. and Rowling agree to a deal for films based on the first four books.
2001: First Potter movie opens in November and grosses $974 million.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the latest film to be mocked by Cinema Sins.
The fantasy movie, based on Jk Rowling's book of the same name, is amusingly ripped apart as numerous plot holes and contrivances are exposed.
Lockhart's character, Harry's poor reading skills and how negligent Hogwarts is are among the 83 'sins' that are listed and narrated in rapid fire.
In May, Cinema Sins told Digital Spy that they hope to eventually cover the whole Harry Potter series.
"We'll continue with big franchises we've started," they said, "so you can expect us to hit some more Harry Potter films, Twilight films, Batman Begins and so on." »
FanAddicts! is a new reality series on Reelz that features collectors who go beyond the realm of the merely enthusiastic. When these FanAddicts start collecting items from a franchise, they just never want to stop. Wednesday night's premiere episode will feature Steve Petrick, the Guinness World Record holder for the largest collection of Harry Potter memorabilia. And while there are plenty of great officially licensed Harry Potter items — this Gryffindor Snuggy-type item being near the top of our list — we also really love the stuff that the fans of the series make. Granted, it's not what most collectors are looking for, but it's stuff that will lift the heart of any Potter fan.
A couple of years ago, we made a list of the best hand-made Harry Potter items, and after checking out Etsy again, it turns out that the fans of the franchise get increasingly more creative and artistic as time goes on. »
