The 12A rating is a growing problem in UK cinemas. And it's one that seems impossible to fix now...
The summer blockbuster season is well underway now, and as a consequence, a procession of big films are waltzing in and out of multiplexes. Popcorn is duly being sold, although not quite as much as last year.
The live action tentpole files, as is the norm, all arrive with a 12A rating – PG-13 in the Us – which in itself has become less of a problem in terms of what’s within the film itself. The umbrella of what a 12A allows is broad enough to allow Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films, for instance, to squeeze through without a cut made. And whilst clearly movies are being shaped with such a rating in mind, I don’t see signs anymore of edges being cut off. Hopefully, the days »

Lionsgate UK have released The Limehouse Golem UK trailer ahead of its release this coming September.
A serial killer stalks the Limehouse streets of Victorian London in 1880, the terrified population of this squalid district of the East End believe that the “Golem”, a monster from Judaic mythology, is responsible. Inspector Kildare of Scotland Yard is handed the impossible task of solving these heinous crimes and his investigations lead him on a race across the capital from The Old Bailey, to Newgate Prison, to the music halls of London and the British Museum. His chief suspects are music hall superstar Dan Leno, political agitator Karl Marx, writer and philosopher George Gissing and journalist John Cree. Kildare believes that famed performer Little Lizzie Cree, who is almost certainly destined to hang for the poisoning of her husband, holds the key to the identity of the real Golem. Kildare must solve the case and in doing so, »

The Woman In Black theatre review: A chance encounter changes one man’s life, will it leave you with a chill down your spine?
The Woman In Black theatre review by Katey Thompson, April 2017.
Stephen Mallatratt‘s play The Woman In Black is an adaptation of the novel of Susan Hill of the same name. It is a tense thriller with a subtle chill running through it. The director Robin Hereford has put together a play that manages to strike the right balance of thrill and suspense, but perhaps does not reach its full ethereal potential.
This play features a highly professional performance by both actors, who both filled the stage, and the auditorium by their presence. Well done David Acton and Matthew Spencer. The dark tension was maintained throughout the performance until the very end. The transition from one character to another by Acton was very skillful and believable »

Warning: This post will spoil Grimm‘s series finale if you haven’t watched it yet.
When Grimm co-creator James Kouf thinks about his supernatural drama’s finale, “One of the things I’m proudest of, at the end, is that it’s one man and three women taking on the evil,” he tells TVLine.

Screen considers potential runners and riders.
The BBC is likely to announce its new head of film within the next two weeks, according to sources close to the process.
Scroll down for potential candidates and the original job spec
That timetable should come as a relief to those under consideration for the role and to wider industry who will want to begin building or growing their relationship with the new boss.
The job, which is considered one of the UK’s most prestigious posts, became vacant in autumn 2016 following the departure of long-time chief Christine Langan. BBC Films veteran Joe Oppenheimer has been serving as acting head of film since then.
The incoming head of film is expected to have an annual war chest of around £12m for production, cementing BBC Films’ position as one the three mainstays of public funding in the UK along with the BFI and Film4.

British filmmaker James Watkins previously helmed Eden Lake and The Woman in Black, horror thrillers that may not have been completely successful but were certainly above average accomplishments. So the idea of him directing a straight action flick sounded intriguing. Originally known as Bastille Day and now titled The Take, the movie stars Idris Elba and Richard Madden as a mismatched pair of rogue operatives who are thrown together to solve a pressing anti-terrorist mission. It feels like a modern British take on the 80s American buddy-cop action movie, especially in its usage of terrorist activity as a cover for a big robbery. Nowadays, though, that sort of thing requires a far different touch. Modern audiences are far too aware of the devastating consequences of...

Gaslight theatre review (UK tour): Should a wife always believe what she is told is true?
Gaslight theatre review, Katey Thompson.
Kara Tointon skilfully depicts Bella Manningham, a fragile, nervous lady who is prone to always accepting what her husband says. Jack Manningham, who is played by Rupert Young is her domineering husband. The production plays out in the drawing room of their home, where items are constantly being moved and misplaced. Jack Manningham always notices that this has all occurred, and accuses his wife of moving them as the trinkets are often found by him in the bottom of her sewing basket. This causes Bella to start to doubt her own recollection of events and whether she has or has not moved them. Jack Manngingham’s controlling behaviour becomes more apparent throughout the play, and he even appears to be little psychotic at times, and he uses his »
