Howard talks Rush, filming F1 on track

I'm desperately clambering after news about the Formula 1 film that Ron Howard is currently working on, for not only is he a great director but I absolutely love the sport and it is filled with such great stories of racing, danger, politics and passion that if you haven't seen...

X-Men: First Class sequel reteams

20th Century Fox has done the deal with Matthew Vaughn and he is indeed returning for another X-Men film, not just that but the announcement says that the cast of X-Men: First Class is also set to return for the sequel, but then how could they not? Bryan Singer is...

The Cold Light of Day trailer

Imagine your Dad told you he's not really a member of staff at an Embassy but actually a CIA agent, how cool would that be? Well not so cool as Henry Cavill's character finds out when his dad, played by Bruce Willis tells him just that, after all his family...

The Union trailer, Elton and Leon

Cameron Crowe has filmed a documentary about Elton John and Leon Russell collaborating on a project together, filming the creative process of both men, and getting into the heart of what both do. The trailer doesn't give us a lot of depth into the film, but it does promise a...

Conception trailer shows ensemble baby making

Josh Stolberg writes and directs an ensemble comedy about conception called, just that, Conception. He previously co-wrote and directed Kids in America, directed The Life Coach and wrote Good Luck Chuck, Sorority Row and Piranha. A strange combination you might think. However Conception is definitely a comedy and with an...

Drive

DVD Four Stars
DVD Four Stars
I've been seeing Drive appear on a lot of top lists, from Filmstalker's Stalker's lists to others peppered across the internet and television, and although it's not made a huge impact at the award nominations this year it's getting a lot of mentions and had a lot of notice, and...

Rolling Thunder

DVD Two Stars
Rolling Thunder is a film from 1977 starring a couple of names you might recognise with William Devane and Tommy Lee Jones, originally written by Paul Schrader just a year after Taxi Driver, and a film that Quentin Tarantino and Gene Siskel both rate highly. Now if that isn't enough...

Death Wish remake from Carnahan

A Death Wish remake has been talked about a lot, and has actually been delivered in many different ways since the 1974 original from Michael Winner with Charles Bronson in the lead, and not just with Bronson films either, we've had similar revenge style films across the board from small...

The Hunter produces a powerful trailer

However, I think the trailer for The Hunter does tell us a little too much. The film stars Willem Dafoe as the hunter who is hired to find a rare and believed extinct Tasmanian Tiger by a company who wants its genetic material, however when he gets to his base...

Mirror Mirror trailer shows all the fun

There's a new trailer for the Tarsem Singh directed and Melisa Wallack written version of the classic Snow White film, and this trailer shows all the fun of the film, well I'm sure it's not all the fun, but there's a damn healthy supply of giggles and laughs. Plus, with...

The Hidden Face (La Cara Oculta) trailer surprises

There's a moment in the trailer for The Hidden Face (La Cara Oculta) that really did get to me, and that's hard for a trailer to do. When that door closes and the images reveal what has happened I did get a surprise because I didn't think it was really...

New Twixt trailer from Francis Ford Coppola

Hard to believe that Francis Ford Coppola could make a bad film, but from all accounts he has done in the form of Twixt. Strange though since it carries such a strong cast, but the trailer we've seen before for the film didn't look that good, and this latest...

Lockout or Lock-Out or MS One: Maximum Security has a fantastic new trailer

I'm not sure what to call it now, everyone's saying Lockout on the Internet and IMDB still display all three titles but their main one is the English title of MS One: Maximum Security. Whether that means it's only called that in England, and not the rest of Britain, I'm...

Oscars Best Original Song isn't the best song

New Seeking Justice (Justice) trailer online

Brake trailer hides a good film?

Brake may instantly sound like Buried, and a cheap version at that especially as it stars the once were strong Stephen Dorff and Tom Berenger, but the concept behind it sounds rather interesting, even if the lighting in the trailer is a little too bright, it seems wrong that he's...

The Hangover Part III drops Hangover core

The Grey red band trailer

The Crow remake comes back to life

You'll remember the uproar that The Crow was getting remade, and the news that the director would be Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and that Bradley Cooper was the one to take the lead. You'll no doubt remember that this was some time ago and both Cooper and Fresnadillo have dropped off...

Haywire

Pinewood's expansion plans killed, residents don't want film industry

Pinewood was planning a massive expansion, something I wrote about back in June of 2009 but was first planned in 2007, an expansion that would mean building a town where sections of it would look like other cities around the world and as a whole offer the potential to increase...

Star Trek sequel in post production 3D

Snow White and the Huntsman new trailer

Jeff Who Lives at Home trailer

Resident Evil: Retribution trailer shows franchise isn't slowing

Woman in the Fifth, I shout Kristin Scott Thomas!

While this trailer is hitting the headlines with the suffix "Ethan Hawke" on the end of it, I prefer to add the suffix of Kristin Scott Thomas, by far the bigger draw in the film for many and I'd argue the better actress/actor. Not that I'm putting down Hawke's performances...
