Winterbottom casts his Amanda Knox film

Except it isn't really his Amanda Knox film, it's a film loosely adapting a book about the Amanda Knox story but not retelling that story, ensuring that the film will become confused with fact from here on out. It's interesting to see that despite the film purchasing a book about...

Non-Stop trailer, Neesom still has specific skills

I like the trailer for Non-Stop, the film from Jaume Collet-Serra that stars Liam Neeson as an Air Marshall, and of course he's world weary and all those usual set-ups, perhaps it's even his last flight as…you know the drill. Well there is a twist. On board the flight someone...

Stone and Foxx on Luther King biographical film

Jamie Foxx as Martin Luther King Jr.? I can't see it myself but then when Foxx has turned his attention to serious roles he's not fallen short of giving a good performance, still he's not the name I would have first associated with the role. That may not be the...

Boyle making Pink Panther film?

I recently saw Danny Boyle's film Trance and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised and what we saw there gives me hope for what he could do with a heist film without the side-lines that the Trance thriller offered us, enjoyable as they were. Why do I...

Wikileaks post The Fifth Estate script and tirade

WikiLeaks has, of course, been rather vocal about the film The Fifth Estate which looks to Julian Assange and the events that brought he and WikiLeaks to the fore of the news as it released secret U.S. documents, unedited, revealing never before known information about U.S. military and political operations,...

Godzilla teaser trailer or old concept trailer?

There's been a fair bit of excitement about a teaser trailer that was reportedly released for the upcoming remake Godzilla, and while it is rather good and keeps the monster in check it does feel like we've seen similar things before, some think that perhaps this has been seen before...

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit trailer arrives

It's sad news that Tom Clancy has died ahead of the restart of the Jack Ryan franchise, but then again maybe it's a blessing that he won't be able to see what Hollywood has made of his character without his input. Mind you, the initial fears I had about the...

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the trailer

I wasn't going to write anything about this trailer because it's been so well covered everywhere else. Everyone who has any interest in film has posted this trailer and has been talking about it, and no wonder it's the penultimate episode in the long journey into Tolkein's world by Peter...

Whitaker as Colin Powell?

Forest Whitaker is a superb actor and I don't think I've seen a film with him in where I haven't felt drawn to his character. He's been in good and bad films but his performances are always worth watching and his most memorable for me have been his role in...

Adele as Dusty Springfield?

According to very light and unsubstantiated rumours, the fantastic singer and songwriter Adele is set to play Dusty Springfield in a film that is in the early stages of development. This rumour came out a little while ago and through some sources that aren't always completely reliable, and so I...
