Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…

While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.

2016 looks to be a particularly strong year for UK crime drama, with Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, Adam Smith’s Trespass Against Us and Michael Apted’s Unlocked on their way. Military thrillers are also well represented this year, with Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle, and Simon West’s Stratton incoming.

Is Sylvester Stallone Done with 'Rambo'?

5 January 2016 1:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When last we heard, Sylvester Stallone was preparing to write Rambo: Last Blood, the fifth chapter in this long-standing action franchise. This was after he'd wrapped filming on Creed, which saw him reprise his iconic role as Rocky Balboa. And it was before Fox announced they were moving forward with the TV drama Rambo: New Blood, which doesn't involve Sylvester Stallone. Now, with the show looming on the horizon, it doesn't look like Sylvester Stallone wants to revisit the role of John Rambo at all. Speaking with Variety, he had this to say.

"The heart's willing, but the body says, 'Stay home! It's like fighters that go back for one last round and get clobbered. Leave it to someone else."

He doesn't come right out and say he's finished with the character. But that's sure what it sounds like. The TV series Rambo: New Blood will follow John »

Why ‘Creed’ Was Sylvester Stallone’s Toughest Role

5 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nearly 40 years after Sylvester Stallone introduced audiences to Rocky Balboa, the actor’s return for his seventh shot at the character in “Creed” has propelled him into a surprise awards-season contender — a status he hasn’t claimed for a long time.

“I actually am startled,” says Stallone, 69, in a recent interview at an upscale Beverly Hills hotel. “It’s a character that I love and never thought I’d play again. I didn’t think it would resonate like it did, especially with a newer generation. I never went into the film thinking this is going to be a transformative performance. I just thought Rocky has a lot of issues, a lot of problems. He’s like all of us.”

If Stallone sounds like a retired champ, the story line fits his real life. In the ’80s and ’90s, Stallone — along with Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger — ruled the action »

Walton Goggins chats about working with Tarantino, The Hateful Eight, and House Of 1000 Corpses...

Walton Goggins is excited about The Hateful Eight. The film is really good, he’s terrific in it and, as one of the lead characters in the new Quentin Tarantino film, it’s perhaps his most high profile role to date. He has a lot to be excited about.

Even his hair looks excited, jutting up wildly. He’s animated and moves a lot, but he’s not wired and out of control. He just exudes enthusiasm and seems happy to be where he is, talking about his work. He’s great fun to talk to; enthusiastic and warm interview subjects are something of a gift. Here’s how our chat with Walton Goggins went.

How do you respond, when you get that script (for The Hateful Eight)?

You know, Quentin doesn »
