Between "Watch_Dogs"' E3 2012 debut and its demo at the PlayStation 4 unveiling, Ubisoft has only offered glimpses on how hacking can be used in the game's open world. We know it plays a central role in both the narrative and as a survival tool. Yet we haven't had a chance to see this mechanic in a free roaming context. This week, Ubisoft gave us a more robust look at "Watch_Dogs": about 30 minutes of open world gameplay, without a single second devoted to the campaign. Here are the five things that has me more excited about "Watch_Dogs", and five things has piqued my curiosity:

However advanced your smartphone might be, you can't automatically hack into every nearby device, at least not at the start of the game. It might be easy to cause an accident by changing a traffic light, but it »

Photo by Pooneh Ghana/NME Theo and Sasha Spielberg, two of Steven Spielberg's children with Temple of Doom star Kate Capshaw, have formed a band called Wardell and they're about to release their first Ep, Brother/Sister. Obviously the only reason we're writing about them is because they're the children of one of the most famous filmmakers of all time, but thankfully for our ears they're pretty talented musicians. In particular Sasha, who has appeared in some of her father's movies as well (The Terminal, Munich and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), has a lovely set of pipes. It's not hard to imagine their first released song, "Opossum," popping up in a darling little indie movie. And while that sounds like a complaint, we mean that in a good...

Filmmaker Kevin Macdonald is about to go deep sea diving with Jude Law. Deadline reports that the film "Black Sea" has been positioned as his next with Law in the lead as a laid-off submarine captain who gets involved in a scheme to seek out a storied sunken sub that might be loaded with gold in the Black Sea. I've been a pretty big fan of Macdonald's from the start. He won an Oscar in 2000 for his documentary feature "One Day in September," which told the story of the 1972 Munich Olympics tragedy six years before Steven Spielberg's "Munich" came »

This smart, dark and hard-edged thriller tells the story of political revenge, starring two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, Best Actor in a Leading Role, 1999; The Usual Suspects, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, 1995) as ambitious and ruthless Democratic Congressman Frank Underwood, and Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as his equally focused wife, Claire. Based on the classic '90s British mini-series, the first season in this modern-day political series also stars Kate Mara (TV's American Horror Story") and Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris).

Welcome to Cannes Check, your annual guide through the 19 films in Competition at next month's Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on May 15. Taking on a different selection every day, we'll be examining what they're about, who's involved and what their chances are of snagging an award from Steven Spielberg's jury. We're going through the list by director and in alphabetical order -- meaning actress-turned-director Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi is first up with "A Villa in Italy." The director: Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi (Italian-French, 48 years old). Though perhaps better known as an actress in such films "Munich" and "5x2," she has directed »

A soldier is at war with himself in a taut colonial thriller that marks a stunning return to form for the director of La Haine
Mathieu Kassovitz made his name in 1995 as writer-director of the fluent, inventive La Haine, a story of 24 hours in the lives of three rebellious working-class youngsters – an explosive Jew, a mercurial, streetwise Arab and an a handsome black boxer – harassed by racist cops in Paris. A key example of the 90s genre dubbed les films de banlieues, it was screened for his cabinet by prime minister Alain Juppé. Kassovitz hasn't made much of interest since then (his last films shown here were the feeble American horror flick Gothika and the muddled sci-fi thriller Babylon Ad). His ruggedly handsome face, however, is familiar from his appearances in such films as Amélie and Spielberg's Munich, in which he played one of the Mossad agents pursuing the Black September terrorists. »

After The Avengers the world truly became a different place, not only for the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also in the landscape of Hollywood. Having seen the success, not only of The Avengers movie, but also of the approach Marvel took to building up their franchises and linking them all together, it’s made a big wave in the thinking of writers and directors everywhere. Star Wars will now have a flurry of movies out with some movies focused on single characters, and the Justice League will…well who knows what the hell is happening with that, but the point is The Avengers Assemble made a big difference to cinema.
A year later and the first post Avengers movie from Marvel is upon us, and franchise that really set the whole Avengers ball rolling, it’s Iron Man 3.

Do you remember that scene in Dumb and Dumber where Jeff Daniels licks a frozen metal pole and finds that his tongue gets stuck to it? Then to free him, he has his head pulls backwards with his tongue stretching like a rubber band? Remember that scene? Well the movie 21 And Over basically does the same joke, but instead of a tongue getting stuck to something and being stretched, it’s a man’s penis…not that it could be a woman’s penis…but the point is that one scene pretty much sums up the level of humour in 21 And Over.
From the writers of The Hangover, expectations are suitably high, but the question as it is with so many filmmakers, have they followed up their hit with another hit, tried to recreate past glories, or gone off on some weird path with something totally unexpected?

La Haine’s Mathieu Kassovitz returns, licking his wounds, to home soil following his less than auspicious results in Hollywood (he disowned the theatrical cut of his 2008 Vin Diesel apocalyptic actioner Babylon Ad). Not one to shy away from a challenge, he’s back in the directors chair, as well as co-writing, co-producing and starring in this true-life account French colonial unrest which resulted in severe military force. Thankfully, the film sees Kassovitz back on solid ground, displaying much of the cinematic pizzazz which characterised his earlier work.
The film opens with scenes which occur towards the end of the struggle, where things have gone seriously awry, leaving the audience with an impending sense of doom from the off. The director still manages to present a taut countdown to the outcome of events from 1988 which saw members of a separatist group from the Ouvea island of New Caledonia taking 27 French »

Apparently even in the 20th century, colonized people don’t like being colonized and sometimes fight back. This is a true story about that. The film open in the U.K. next Friday, but if you can’t wait that long, there are three special screenings taking place this Sunday in London: Hackney Picturehouse at 2pm Odeon Covent Garden at 4pm Cine Lumiere at 6pm Writer, director, and star Mathieu Kassovitz -- you remember him from Haywire, Munich, and Amelia -- will be on hand at each for Q&A’s after the screenings. »

“My aunt is a painter, my mother is a photographer and going back a rather few generations there are literary and painting people,” states British Costume Designer Joanna Johnston. “My father was involved with theatre so there was this entertainment thing from him.” The 1938 production of Marie Antoinette which resulted in Norma Shearer (The Divorcee) receiving an Oscar nomination has left a lasting cinematic impression. “It was designed by a designer called Adrian and he was a massive eclectic designer from the 20th century. I have no idea how much his budget would have been; it’s so fantastical that if you see it and you’re young, it’s absolutely beyond.” Becoming a costume designer for film was an accidental career choice. “It was serendipity. I fell under the guise of »
With Jurassic Park coming back to theaters this week, we're looking back at the years when Steven Spielberg released two films, and how those films reflect on each other. Earlier this week Sean dug into 1993's double feature, Jurassic Park vs. Schindler's List, Kristy tackled 1989's Always and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Katey took on 2005, when Spielberg released Munich and War of the Worlds. In today's final installment, Eric compares Catch Me If You Can and Minority Report. One of the most interesting tonal shifts of Steven Spielberg.s career came in 2002 when he made both Minority Report and Catch Me If You Can. In his double film years, Spielberg has notably always balanced the more fun, adventurous sci-fi/fantasy movies . like Jurassic Park, The Adventures of Tintin and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - with more serious, Oscar-oriented films . like Schindler.s List, War Horse, »
With Jurassic Park coming back to theaters this week, we're looking back at the years when Steven Spielberg released two films, and how those films reflect on each other. Earlier this week Sean dug into 1993's double feature, Jurassic Park vs. Schindler's List, and Kristy tackled 1989's Always and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Today Katey takes on 2005, when Spielberg released Munich and War of the Worlds. Less than four years passed between the attack on Pearl Harbor and the end of the global war that the U.S. entered because of it. Just shy of 60 years later the World Trade Center was destroyed, but in 2005 the United States was four years into a secretive, muddled war with no end in sight. Two weeks before Steven Spielberg released War of the Worlds in June of that year, five Marines were killed by a roadside bomb in Western Iraq. In »
During over four decades of writing film reviews, Roger Ebert, who died at age 70 on Thursday, had a continually keen eye for blossoming talent, picking out directors like Martin Scorsese as ones to watch from their very first films, and he found plenty of filmmakers worthy of “two thumbs up” throughout his career. But one filmmaker whose work he championed with particular enthusiasm over the years was Werner Herzog.

There are so many Game of Thrones characters to keep straight — and it feels like every time someone dies, two more characters pop up to replace him. Yesterday we reminded you about where we left off with all the returning figures, but there will be many more new faces to memorize in season three (which starts Sunday on HBO). To give you a head start acquainting yourself with some of the more interesting and crucial characters coming into the story, we’ll break them down by territory.Beyond the Wall We've been hearing about the King Beyond the Wall for two seasons now, and the wait is finally over: Jon Snow meets him straight away in episode one. Mance Rayder (played by Munich’s Ciarán Hinds) has a commanding presence, along with the biggest army we've seen so far (literally: Some are giants). Rayder's lieutenants include the great fighter Tormund »

The Joes are back.
After the Pakastani President is assassinated, insurgents seize the country’s nuclear arsenal and the Joes are sent in to retrieve the codes. After Duke, Roadblock and the Joes are ambushed by Cobra forces, retaliation is set in motion. In director Jon M. Chu’s 3D sequel to the 2009 movie, the team has to take on the Cobra enemy forces and expose an imposter in the oval office.
While the Cobra Commander is set on becoming ruler over all the Earth while causing global destruction through with his “Zeus” weapon, G.I. Joe: Retaliation also focuses on the relationship between Snake Eyes and his arch-enemy Storm Shadow, who was presumed dead at the end of Rise Of Cobra.
