It's strange how much marketing material exists for The Amazing Spider-Man and yet so little of it seems to be making an impact. The latest attempt comes in the form of an Australian trailer which offers some new footage and the same troubling lack of real enthusiasm.
Paul Thomas Anderson is reported to have shown The Master to Tom Cruise as rumours persist that the film is inspired by Scientology and the movement's founder L. Ron Hubbard.
The Batman promotional material just keeps on coming. After months with just an unsatisfactorily vague image and a teaser made up of the daily rushes, the last episode in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is finally being heralded by a barrage of new material. Apart from the flood of images (all of which you can blow up to your heart’s content on our Dark Knight film page), the four-minute extract of Bane’s aerial escape, the first proper (and excellent) trailer and then last week’s two TV spots, we’ve got a third – and presumably final – spot for you today. It premiered on US TV last night and, whilst it doesn’t give too much more away, it confirms – as if anyone really needed it confirming – that Nolan is going heavy of the doom and gloom again. With Marvel nailing their colours to the more colourful end of the funnybook spectrum, Nolan and DC are definitely majoring in shades of black.
With the release of the final Twilight film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, set to be released later this year, Summit Entertainment has revealed three new character posters of the film’s main characters, Bella, Edward and Jacob.
Did you hear what The Hunger Games sequel has been called? That’s right, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Who’d have guessed?
We may have seen and heard a lot about Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe since their Harry Potter days, but now it’s Rupert Grint’s turn for some time in the post-Ron Weasley spotlight.
The actor has a couple of projects lined up – the first in Fredrik Bond’s action-comedy-romance The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and the second in the music biopic CBGB. Want to know more? Good.
To celebrate the release of the superbly chilly Woman in Black, we have a Blu-ray copy to give away. And you have three ways of winning it.
This highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Susan Hill's classic novel tells the tale of Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), a lawyer who is forced to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend to the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House.
Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to uncover the town’s tragic and tortured secrets and his fears escalate when he discovers that local children have been dying under mysterious circumstances. When those closest to him become threatened by the vengeful woman in black, Kipps must find a way to break the cycle of terror.
This film has been a monumental success in Australia: its highest grossing film of 2011 and its 7th best-selling movie of all time. It was part of the Official Selection at the Berlin Film Festival 2011, winning the Best Picture Award at the AACTA 2012 and taking an impressive six awards (including Best Film) at the Inside Film Australian Film Awards. The film follows the legendary life of an Australian kelpie dog who roams the harsh and uncompromising mining frontier, uniting a group of 'dirty, drunken' miners. Related in flashback form, we follow the canine as he journeys through Western Australia to find his master, played by Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama), who dies in an accident.
What with one thing and another, this promises to be summer of high patriotic sentiment. In recognition of this public mood, those nice people at Studiocanal, in association with The Independent Cinema Office, have organized a special season of screenings in celebration of classic British cinema at selected venues across the country in between the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend and the Olympics.
