Plex – the Scarlet Pimpernel of movie reviewing. He’s worked in the industry since the turn of the century, has a black book of contacts worth killing for, and isn’t afraid to give duff films both barrels. Harrison Ford called him ‘that little shit’ and he once trod on Johnny Depp’s foot. That’s just how he rolls.
I've been excited almost from the get-go with regard to the second attempt to bring Judge Joseph Dredd to the big screen. The early word has been strong, and the team behind it - notably director Pete Travis (Vantage Point), writer Alex Garland (28 Days Later) and star Karl Urban (Star Trek) - is one that suggests there is real fidelity to the classic character and that confidence might be well placed. The news that the film is a hard-R (a 15 in this country) was just what we needed to hear, and now we have an endorsement from Dredd's co-creator John Wagner.
Get ready for a thrilling ride as Ewan McGregor narrates the fascinating full-length documentary feature-film FASTEST, released on Blu-ray and DVD on 11 June 2012, from Universal Pictures (UK).
Directed by Mark Neale through breathtaking camerawork this maximum-speed documentary captures the intense and heart-pounding reality of the MotoGP Championship, documenting a pivotal movement in the sport. Shot around the world in 2010 and 2011, FASTEST follows the legendary Valentino Rossi as he chases his eighth world title.
To celebrate the DVD release of Emmy and Golden Globe winning comedy series Entourage's eighth season, and the new seasons 1-8 boxset, we’re giving you the chance to win season 8 on DVD!
The time has come to bid a fine farewell as 11 June 2012 marks the release of the eighth and final season of television’s coolest show. After 96 episodes, the much-loved Emmy and Golden Globe winning series has come to an end. But fear not, as for the first time ever a Complete Boxset of Seasons One to Eight will also be available on 11 June 2012. Executively produced by Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg (Contraband, The Departed) and loosely based on his own Hollywood experience, Entourage is a hilarious romp through the absurdities of modern-day Tinseltown, following the life of a young star and his buddies in Hollywood where the guys want to be them and girls want to be with them.
Samuel L Jackson has been added to the already impressive cast of Jose Padilha’s Robocop reboot. Jackson will play Pat Novak, a media mogul whom I suspect might not have Alex Murphy’s best interests at heart. Jackson has charisma to spare and I can very easily see him filling the shoes of a Rupert Murdoch-esque oligarch with designs on the Robocop technology.
There’s a lot of superhero news floating around at the moment; having a film smash box office records will do that, as the rest of Hollywood smells what sells and struggles to find a space on the bandwagon. The Wonder Woman project has been on the go in one form or another since the latest round of comic book adaptations started to do such good business, and it hasn’t always been a smooth ride.
