Two Down review

Stephen Fry and Derek Jacobi are amongst the backers of the impressive British contract killer movie, Two Down...

Filmmakers seem to have a fixation with hitmen. No doubt this is because the addition of a contract killer creates the opportunity for just the right degree of tension, some violence, and a dash of psychological intrigue. Nevertheless, the formula can still produce idiosyncratic results, as Two Down, from Fizz and Ginger Films, proves. With backing from executive producers Stephen Fry and Derek Jacobi, the husband and wife team have created an absorbing drama with a very British flavour.

Matthew Butler Hart, the film’s director and co-writer, says they wanted to do something which involved three people together in a room, with both light and dark elements. Out of that grew this understated thriller, combining the influence of 1970s spy movies with a dry sense of humour.

The story begins when John,

Watch: First Trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Horror 'Crimson Peak'

"There are parts of the house that are unsafe." We've been waiting patiently, and director Guillermo del Toro has finally delivered the teaser trailer for his latest horror project, Crimson Peak. In true teaser fashion, it doesn't show much, but it makes a bold claim that this is del Toro's ultimate masterpiece. It looks gorgeous and haunting, but there's clearly some visual effects that still need to be finished. It's hard to convey too much of the spookiness of a film like this without using cheap scares, and thankfully, del Toro doesn't go for that, and let's Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain shine. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak, originally from Apple: Crimson Peak is directed by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim, The Devil's Backbone) from a script he co-wrote with Matthew Robbins (Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Mimic) and

CBS Conjures Rupert Grint

  • Boomtron
Someone has made very good use of their magical powers by bringing Harry Potter‘s Ron Weasley to an American TV series. The news is as delicious as a trip to Honeydukes! Actor Ruper Grint has signed on to star in the CBS comedy, Super Clyde .

Raising Hope‘s Greg Garcia conjured the new series, which means it will be very funny. It follows Grint in the role of an average, run of the mill, hum drum fast-food employee who makes up his mind to become a superhero.

Clyde was described by THR as sweet, but “slightly neurotic”. I’m chuckling already. What are some of his issues? Well, he is always the outside. He adores comic books reader and is kind of “borderline agoraphobic”. As you might guess, this all causes some trouble with anxiety. Poor lad.

Things change for Clyde when he inherits $100,000-a-month from his odd Uncle Bill.
