Freddie Mercury film faltering?

Is the Freddie Mercury film going to get made? Usually the problem with biographical films about famous musicians and bands are the rights, obtaining them either to the music or to the person themselves and while the filmmakers are keen to move forward the person, the widow or the estate...

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom trailer, Elba voice leads

I'm surprised that we're seeing a trailer for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom already, even if it is a teaser trailer. Mind you there's not a great deal in the trailer other than Idris Elba delivering a strong vocal performance as the man himself and carrying it off very well....

We have two films about Linda Lovelace coming and it looks like Lovelace is the one that's going to make it first by a mile, does that make it the better one? Well we haven't had much way to judge that yet other than the cast list, now we have...

Escape Plan trailer, Arnie and Sly together

While the names of Jason Keller and Miles Chapman as the writers for Escape Plan might not mean much to you, Keller wrote Machine Gun Preacher (Filmstalker review), there are some names in Escape Plan you will know and it's not just the big guns of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold...

Saving Mr Banks trailer, the untold Mary Poppins story

A film about the real Walt Disney sounds like a really fascinating film except that doesn't seem to be the one we'll be getting here. Saving Mr. Banks is based on a real story though, the story is about the author P.L. Travers who created Mary Poppins and then was...

Wasteland trailer offers interesting tease of British heist film

I'm always interested in a good British film, especially one that takes a new look to a well-trodden genre or adds a very unique British slant. Right now I'm not entirely sure which Wasteland will bring, perhaps both, but from the trailer for the British heist film it does look...

jOBS trailer, Kutcher 2.0 released

The cult fans of Apple and Steve Jobs went crazy over the trailer for jOBS, the film about Steve Jobs and the Apple company, but for others it might just breeze past them. One thing can be said whatever camp you're in, Ashton Kutcher looks like he's going to be...

Pluto (Myungwangsung)

Film Four Stars

Paris Countdown (La Jour Attendra)

Film Five Stars
I love thrillers and I love stylish ones. Now if it comes from Europe then I'm pretty much sold on the film before I've even read anything of it, and that is basically how I came to Paris Countdown (La Jour Attendra) at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The blurb...

Il Futuro (The Future)

Film One Star
Il Futuro (The Future) grabbed my interest at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival for one very big reason, Rutger Hauer. Of course the write-up sounded interesting too and it sounded rather quirky without selling itself on the side of silly, in fact it sounded as though it could be...

The Bling Ring

Film Two Stars
To be honest I don't know what I was expecting from The Bling Ring at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival but I was hoping for more Lost in Translation and less Marie Antoinette, two very different films from the writer and director Sofia Coppola. A young cast and the...
