Tim Burton is embracing social media in the promotion of his latest fantasy adventure. He jumped on his personal Facebook page last night to share the first official look at his upcoming adaptation Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. While we don't get to see any of the characters yet, we do get to see the home mentioned in the title. And we get some bird symbolism. It looks like nothing but blue skies for these strange kids who are about to get a very unexpected visitor.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is based upon the best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs. We won't get to see the movie until March 4, 2016, so a trailer may still be miles away. The movie has quite an ensemble of fan-favorite talent, lead by Asa Butterfield, who lost out on the role of Spider-Man just in the last few months. At least he has »

It’s been some time since Johnny Depp graced our screens. He’s been a Hollywood icon for over 30 years and has starred in some of the biggest box office smashes in history as some of the most recognisable characters on our screens.
So much so that in a recent poll by Ladbrokes, he was voted the UK’s favourite current celebrity. Which is quite the accolade in a world of the Kardashians and Ryan Gosling.
Of course, that’s because he has a fantastic back catalogue of work, but what ranks up there amongst his best?
A Nightmare on Elm Street may have been Johnny Depp’s first role on the big screen, but he showed no sign of nerves with a magnificent performance as Glen Lantz, one of the main characters who experience the horrific nightmares of Freddy Krueger.
Depp was aged just 21 at the time, »

Movie trailers are capable of misleading in more ways than simply tricking you into thinking a terrible movie is worth a watch. They can give the impression the film is of a completely different tone (making Drive look like a stunt-packed action movie), or even an entirely different genre, as with the trailer for Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd (which made no reference to the fact it was a fully-fledged musical).
While marketing departments makes these editing decisions to manipulate the customer, the advent of cheap and easy to use editing software has allowed movie fans to get in on the act themselves, chopping up popular trailers for their own amusement.
The results can be highly amusing, transforming animated kids’ films into horror movies or chilling thrillers into romantic comedies, all through the clever rearranging of shots, dialogue and music.

John Logan has done it all. The three-time Oscar nominee has written intimate dramas ("The Aviator," "Coriolanus"), musicals ("Sweeney Todd"), historical epics ("Gladiator," "The Last Samurai"), animated films ("Rango") and giant blockbusters ("Skyfall" and its upcoming sequel, "Spectre"). He even started off writing TV movies before transitioning to his first TV series just last year, with Showtime's horror hit "Penny Dreadful." It's this story he likes most of all: Literary characters abound in his monster mash with equal doses of drama and scares. Logan planned out the first three seasons before committing to the series, but he's thinking ahead even further, now that he's in it. Below, Logan talks about learning to become a better showrunner, whether he thinks there's a stigma associated with horror at award shows and why James Bond belongs on film — not TV.

Bend it Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?
The original film has become a cult favourite. Were you a fan?
"Yeah, of course. For me, it was a point in time when I was growing up. I was either turning a teenager, or had just turned into a teenager, and obviously I was madly in love with Keira Knightley. One of the first movies that she did was a film called The Hole, and this [Bend It Like Beckham] came shortly after that, »
Monsters: Dark Continent, 2015.
Directed by Tom Green.
Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same time there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to draft in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.
Much like with Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd where certain members of the audience didn’t realise it was a musical (yeah…), there were reports of walk-outs during Gareth Edwards’ strange and subversive debut Monsters. Not for explicit or offensive content, and no, not for being a musical; people walked for the simple fact that there just weren’t very many monsters in it. Edwards famously shot the film on a shoe-string budget and »
