After the lukewarm reception granted to the news that Ricky Gervais would star in the forthcoming sequel to The Muppets (reportedly titled The Muppets…..Again), a far rosier one will no doubt greet the news that Tina Fey is now also in talks to appear.
Much acclaimed at Sundance Film Festival, and specially selected for Sundance London, Safety Not Guaranteed is an indie comedy-drama with a time-travelling twist that will keep you guessing until the very end – yet the real surprise is the heartfelt characters which sit just the right side of quirky throughout.
The fifth instalment in the interminable Scary Movie franchise has a new trailer, if that's how you choose to spend your spare time.
While the world did not end today, principal photography on Edgar Wright's The World's End did end today. That's great timing, I must say.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone stars Steve Carell as the titular Vegas magician whose relationship with stage partner, Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi), becomes strained with the arrival of edgy street magician, Steve Gray (Jim Carrey).
In a bid to beat the Mayan apocalypse, Seth Rogen and James Franco have released a red-band trailer for their upcoming comedy, This Is The End.
Comedian, writer and director Ricky Gervais confirmed today via his twitter account that he has signed up to play the human lead in James Bobin's sequel to 2011's The Muppets.
Holy balls, this trailer has me so excited that I am going to rant and rave. Yes, a Michael Bay movie has inspired a mini-essay that isn't entitled "Our culture has AIDS now."
As a film fan, it is always heartening to know that great cinema is being protected. The great, lost films of history are a real sticking point for any connoisseur of the art form, so this is why I love The National Film Preservation Board so much.
The organisation has made its annual selection of 25 films to join the National Film Registry, with prints to be housed and preserved in the Library of Congress, recognised forever as important works of American film.
Alejandro González Iñárritu's talent for powerful drama, grappling with dark and ponderous themes and drawing intense performances from his actors have won him acclaim throughout the film industry - from critical circles to those of his peers. His 'Death Trilogy' (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel) and following feature Biutiful have cemented him as one of (if not the) most accomplished and proficient Mexican directors working today.
A film-maker famous for peering thoughtfully into the abysses of the soul and the finality and impact of death does not, on paper, present a stellar candidate to helm a comedy feature. That, however, is next on Iñárritu's agenda.
