Tom Cruise lays waste to the opposition in Oblivion

Studio bosses are left wondering what went right as the science-fiction story brings home a surprise result

The winner

Reviews were mixed, and the early April release date suggested a movie falling short of the blockbuster premier league, but there was nothing puny about the opening-weekend box office for Oblivion: £3.36m, plus Wednesday/Thursday previews totaling £1.60m. The five-day £4.96m debut compares with £2.79m for GI Joe: Retaliation from a couple of weeks ago, and a previews-inflated £3.58m opening for star Tom Cruise's previous effort Jack Reacher in late December. Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski's earlier Tron: Legacy debuted with £1.97m back in 2010. Cruise also has a strong track record in the sci-fi genre. War of the Worlds debuted in July 2005 with £8.64m, and Minority Report in July 2002 with £4.51m.

Studios always review results for all their releases, and now Universal is in the happy position of wondering what went right with Oblivion.

This week's new films

Spring Breakers | A Late Quartet | The Expatriate | Thursday Till Sunday | Dark Skies | The Odd Life Of Timothy Green | Papdopoulos & Sons | All Things To All Men | Home

Spring Breakers (18)

(Harmony Korine, 2012, Us) Selena Gomez, James Franco, Gucci Mane. 94 mins

The new American dream/nightmare of the endless beach party is both celebrated and satirised in Korine's woozy Florida tale. The story is fittingly loose – four naive teens turn to criminal means to fund their hedonism – but it's more of an experience: a dubstep-tracked collage of neon, Day-Glo and tanned flesh, all facilitated by Franco's fantastically watchable gangsta rapper.

A Late Quartet (15)

(Yaron Zilberman, 2012, Us) Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener. 106 mins

A respected New York string quartet is struck by an excess of issues here: terminal illness, infidelity, professional jealousy, you name it. Without the distinguished cast, its highbrow melodramas would seem ludicrous.

The Expatriate (15)

(Philipp Stölzl, 2012, Us/Bel/Can/UK) Aaron Eckhart,

The HeyUGuys Interview: George Isaac and Pierre Mascolo talk All Things To All Men

Having produced both Kidulthood and Adulthood together, producers George Isaac and Pierre Mascolo have collaborated once more for All Things To All Men, except this time around Isaac steps into the director’s chair for the very first time.

Isaac – who wrote the screenplay too – also had the pleasure of directing his close colleague, as Mascolo takes on a role in the film as Mark Corso – the wayward son of gangster Joseph (Gabriel Byrne). The pair talk about their experience working on this film, and for Isaac what it is like finally directing his first feature length movie. They also talk about their portrayal of London within the film, and how they went about shooting car chases on location…

All Things to All Met is out in UK cinema today. You can see our coverage of the movie including our review here.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Mc Harvey Talks All Things to All Men

Mc Harvey is what you would call a Jack of all trades, as the former rapper – famed for his work with So Solid Crew – has since turned his head to acting, and following a role in The Big I Am, he returns in George Isaac’s All Things to All Men – and we discussed his role in the movie ahead of its forthcoming release.

Playing the part of criminal Curtis Carter, Mc Harvey – whose real name is Michael Harvey – discusses playing a role that feels somewhat close to home, with the films predominant setting taking place in the same area of London the actor was born. He also discusses his own future, as well as telling us where he feels his heart lies – as a performer who has formed careers for himself in music, acting and even professional football.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Rufus Sewell Talks All Things To All Men

This may come as a surprise to you – but the much celebrated actor Rufus Sewell has not had a major screen role in a British movie since 1996 – but as we speak to Sewell ahead of his latest feature All Things To All Men, we learn that it certainly isn’t for the lack of trying – as he simply wasn’t being offered the roles he desired.

However he now plays a role he claims to have yearned for – that of corrupt detective Parker, in George Isaac’s debut feature film, which hits our screens on Friday 5th April. In the meantime, Sewell also talks of his current work on stage in Old Times, as well as discussing his upcoming role in the eagerly anticipated Hercules: The Thracian Wars, where he stars opposite a certain Dwayne Johnson.

All Things to All Men – review

Kidulthood producer George Issac makes his writer-director debut with this stylish crime thriller

George Isaac is the producer of the commercially triumphant British films Kidulthood and Adulthood, and makes his debut as a writer-director of this London crime thriller. Perhaps against the odds, it's a smart, engaging film, hitting a confident stride right away, and coolly proprietorial in its attitude to London, taking on the big, iconic locations without looking touristy. Rufus Sewell is Parker, a bent copper looking into a cocaine case, but his interest goes beyond making a collar. By nicking a medium-level villain Mark Corso (Pierre Mascolo) on charges that he can withdraw later if he wishes, Parker has a leverage on his father, crime lord Joseph, played with menace and gravitas by Gabriel Byrne. In return for springing his son, Parker wants Corso Sr to do him a favour concerning a thief, Riley, played by Toby Stephens.

All Things to All Men Review

The gritty London crime thriller is a genre somewhat overcooked in British cinema and on the verge of being burnt for good – and when gearing yourself up to indulge in yet another addition to this particular variety of film, a rolling of the eyes is the natural reflex – yet in George Isaac’s defence, the producer of Kidulthood and Adulthood has done a commendable job in taking an obvious, unsubtle narrative and making it feel rather unique, in his directorial debut All Things to All Men.

Rufus Sewell plays a corrupt, veteran cop called Parker, who intends to take down long-term adversary and seemingly unassailable crime lord Joseph Corso (Gabriel Byrne), by staging a robbery and using the gangster’s own drug-addicted son Mark (Pierre Mascolo) as bait. However this dangerous game of cat and mouse takes an unexpected turn, as Riley (Toby Stephens) – a former assassin hired to take

Film Review: 'All Things to All Men'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Hot on the heels of Eran Creevy's slick London cat-and-mouse chase Welcome to the Punch (2013) comes George Isaac's All Things to All Men (2013), a British crime flick with as much ambition as its title. But where Punch abstracted the nation's capital, filtering it through layers of Hong Kong cool, Isaac's tame thriller takes a more literal approach to the city, breaking out the tourist traps every few minutes. If it wasn't for the presence of a talented cast and a few decent set pieces, it could almost be a tourist video. Rufus Sewell gives good grit as veteran cop Parker (that's right, another one), who's been playing the game for years.

The Croods thumps GI Joe and tops UK Easter box office

DreamWorks Animation's caveman adventure The Croods enjoys a second week at the top of the box-office chart

The winner

Dipping only 7% from the previous weekend, caveman cartoon The Croods cruised to a second week at the top of the box-office chart, delivering a 12-day total of £10.61m.

Considering DreamWorks Animation's previous effort, Rise of the Guardians, has managed only £12.67m after 18 weeks on release and The Croods has the bulk of the Easter school holiday ahead of it, the new picture is clearly going to achieve a much higher total. Executives at the studio had reason to hope that Guardians was a safe bet, since characters such as Jack Frost, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy provided ample brand recognition, but it turns out audiences have proved much more welcoming to the freshly conceived, albeit familiar-feeling, family at the heart of The Croods.

London Thriller ‘All Things To All Men’ UK Poster & Trailer

The writing and directorial debut of Kidulhood producer George Isaac isn’t far off a release date, so we best be getting that poster out there. The film stars Gabriel Byrne as a man blackmailed by corrupt police officer, Rufus Sewell, into hiring assassin Toby Stephens. The trailer makes the film look as though it could be a passable British romp, and may even exceed expectations as it does look impressive in terms of action and suspense. The latest poster takes on the look of an espionage thriller, making it seem more like a spy film than the crime flick it is.

All Things To All Men is released 5th April. It stars Rufus Sewell, Toby Stephens, Gabriel Byrne, Julians Sands, and Terence Maynard.

George Isaac’s debut feature film, All Things to All Men, has itself a trailer and we’re very happy to bring this to you this afternoon.

Isaac is perhaps best known for his Producing credits for Kidulthood and Adulthood and this London based crime drama seems to be the natural scene to set our his first project as writer and director.

There was a great sense of love for the film, Isaac spoke of the great opportunity of directing his first film and the blessing of getting a cast of the calibre he has. Gabriel Byrne, Rufus Sewell and Toby Stephens line up to tell the tale of a crime boss and a maverick policeman going to battle across a war-torn London.

Casting Bits: Casey Affleck in Whitey Bulger Biopic, Dylan McDermott in ‘Dog Fight’, Gabriel Byrne, Rufus Sewell, and Toby Stephens in ‘All Things to All Men’

Casting Bits: Casey Affleck in Whitey Bulger Biopic, Dylan McDermott in ‘Dog Fight’, Gabriel Byrne, Rufus Sewell, and Toby Stephens in ‘All Things to All Men’
[1] It was announced [2] earlier this week that Ben Affleck and longtime pal Matt Damon would reunite for a biopic about Whitey Bulger, with Casey Affleck set to co-star. We now have a more information about the younger Affleck's part. He'll be playing Bill Bugler, little brother of Whitey Bugler (Damon's role). Unlike notorious gangster Whitey, Billy was an upstanding member of society -- Korean war vet, lawyer, politician, and educator. He lost his post as the president of the University of Massachusetts in 2003 when he was found to have spoken with his fugitive brother in secret. In addition to starring, Damon will also script the film; Affleck the Elder will direct and co-star. It's unclear when exactly the picture will get off the ground, as both brothers and Damon have plenty of other projects on their plates. But they'll have to get moving if they want to beat the two
