Glasgow Film Festival: ‘You, Me and Him’ Review: Dir. Daisy Aitkens (2018)

You, Me and Him review: Daisy Aitkens directs David Tennant and Lucy Punch in this delightful little film which is both hilarious and charming.

You, Me and Him review by Awais Irfan.

You, Me and Him review

In the recent tide of incredible Lgbt love-stories that have swept us up recently, the latest to join the ranks is the quirky, offbeat David Tennant-starring You, Me and Him.

Despite their age difference, Olivia (Lucy Punch) and Alex (Faye Marsay) are very much in love. However, when the question of pregnancy arises to take their relationship to the next level, and both girls end up pregnant at the same time, the couple finds themselves under some serious strain and stress. Throw their extravagant, cocksure neighbour John (Tennant) into the mix and disaster and chaos is a given for Olivia and Alex’s forthcoming family and their love story.

Official Trailer for Daisy Aitkens' Romantic Comedy 'You, Me and Him'

"I need you to be the person you plan to be sooner." The first official trailer has arrived online for an indie romantic comedy titled You, Me and Him, from the UK made by Australian filmmaker Daisy Aitkens, her feature debut. You, Me and Him plays with modern relationship dynamics by introducing a lesbian couple named Olivia and Alex, played by Lucy Punch and Faye Marsay. One lady is a career driven lawyer and the other a fun loving, pot smoking layabout and their neighbour is an annoying Casanova. While neither woman ever wanted children, both end up pregnant. How's that for a modern romantic comedy concept? The cast includes David Tennant, David Warner, Sarah Parish, Peter Davison, Gemma Jones, and Sally Phillips. From the footage in this trailer, it seems this is trying too hard to be a quirky comedy that captures society's romance, but lacks any of the

Interview with Double Date Director Benjamin Barfoot

Interview with Double Date Director Benjamin Barfoot

We at The Hollywood News have been in love with the film Double Date since we caught it in Edinburgh. It tells the tale of 29-year-old virgin Jim (Danny Morgan) and his best pal Alex (Michael Socha) as they go out on a night on the town with sisters Kitty (Kelly Wenham) and Lou Lou (Georgia Groome). The mission – to get Jim laid. Their plans take a very unexpected turn though, as the girls aren’t as innocent as they appear, and the quartet go on one Hell of a night. We can’t praise Double Date enough, going so far as to give it a mighty five stars when we reviewed it at Frightfest. The balance of horror and comedy is beautifully balanced and overall the movie is just a lot of fun.

After what seems like forever, Double Date is in cinemas across the UK.

While the two have been paired on stage more than once, it’s hard to imagine Elton John and Eminem speaking to each other in a personal or even social circumstance.

In a recent interview with the Detroit Metro Times, Eminem revealed that Elton John played a significant role in getting him off of drugs. “Me and him have had similar lives and stuff.

Liam Payne Reveals His Son Bear’s Middle Name — and the Moniker He Almost Had Instead

Liam Payne Reveals His Son Bear’s Middle Name — and the Moniker He Almost Had Instead
Just one day after Liam Payne shared the story behind his son’s name, Bear, the former One Direction member revealed his 8-week-old’s middle name: Grey.

During a sit-down with SiriusXM’s Morning Mash Up show, Payne said he and Cheryl came up with the name together after she chose their baby’s unique first name.

At first, however, the singer was set on something a bit more traditional.

“It was going to be James, I was going to name him, because my middle name’s James,” he said. “I was gonna give him my middle name, but I like Grey.

Archer Season 8 Episode 2 Review: Archer Dreamland: Berenice

The streak continues with another solid episode, as Archer Season 8 Episode 2 shines the spotlight on Archer and Cheryl.

Honestly, I can't tell you the last time I enjoyed Cheryl this much in a single episode.

Of all the different themes that this show has visited, this is easily the best take of Cheryl.

Cheryl isn't my favorite character. While I find her insanity hilarious, there were times in the past few seasons where she just became too much for me.

I did not enjoy her iteration as country singer Cherlene (I found "Outlaw Country!" grating), and, to be truthful, I don't remember her being that outstanding in Archer Season 5 or when they joined the FBI.

Cheryl Vandertunt, publishing heiress, is an incredibly interesting version of the character. There are things about her that remain the same: her penchant for sadomasochism, her flight of thought and flippant tangentially. Typical Cheryl.

Scarlett Johansson defends Ghost in the Shell whitewashing, Warcraft 2 update, Halloween reboot and more – Daily News Roundup

Scarjo Defends Ghost In The Shell

One of the big talking points coming out of the casting of Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell was the reported “whitewashing” of the role. Many have come out to defend the casting, and now Johansson herself has spoken out about it. “I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person,” she said in an interview. “Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.” Read more about that here.

Apparently, Coolio was going to play Scarecrow in the Batman & Robin sequel

It’s legend now, but there was a time when Joel Schumacher was working on a follow-up to Batman & Robin, which was green-lit when Warner Bros. were ecstatic with the dailies that were coming back from its production. Since then we’ve heard many rumours about who was going to play certain roles, but a new story has come out today that has taken us all a bit by surprise.

According to rapper Coolio, who features in Batman & Robin as the leader of a motorcycle gang, he was supposed to play Scarecrow in the fifth movie, titled Batman Unchained.

“The only reason I did that part was because they promised me the villain part in the following Batman,” Coolio said in this interview (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Which they didn’t do because Joel Schumacher – they fired him. Me and him didn’t get along that great anyway… [In] the next

David Crow Feb 10, 2017

Coolio might have been considered to play the Scarecrow by Joel Schumacher in the unproduced Batman 5...

Still, before that movie even lands, THR is getting the Batman movie nostalgia started early with the revelation that rapper and sometime-actor Coolio almost played the Scarecrow in an unproduced fifth Batman movie.

Logan Huffman interview for Final Girl: “I wanted to create an axe murderer with the feet of Fred Astaire”

Logan Huffman interview for Final Girl

Final Girl hit FrightFest last Friday and heads to DVD next month. Directed by photographer Tyler Shields, it’s a noir-inspired horror that provides something different amongst the assorted gorefests competing for fans’ attention. One of its key players is Logan Huffman as axe-happy teen torturer Danny, whose plans for the seemingly-helpless Veronica (Abigail Breslin) take a nasty and unexpectedly surreal turn.

I caught up with him for an intriguing chat about the improvised nature of his role, the way the movie changed as it went along and his thoughts on the genre in general. He also offered up a memory of late director Wes Craven, somewhat appropriate given this week’s sad news…

The film is kind of unique compared to today’s horror movies. How did you come to be involved?

Well Tyler and I have been buddies for a while and
