Tomb Raider [2018] Trailer


Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) appears to be just an ordinary 21-year-old girl living in East London, making money as a bike courier, and missing her father Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West) terribly. He went missing while on an archaeological adventure many years ago, and she's desperate to go find the place where he disappeared. She can hardly focus on her college courses, and she certainly refuses to take hold of her father's business empire.

She's handy with a variety of weapons, and while she might just look like a young girl, she can handle herself better than most people. Despite all the warnings she receives against the trip, she is totally ready for a death-defying voyage across oceans and tropical continents to seek out a mysterious island where she'll need more than her strength and archery ability to stay alive. There are enigmas to solve if she wants to get to the bottom of a terrifying conspiracy that her father discovered before he vanished.

Alicia remembers being just 8-years-old when she first discovered the 'Tomb Raider' video games. It was the first time she had seen a female doing the dangerous work in a game, and ever since she started acting she's wanted to be at the head of a major action franchise. Indeed, this particular movie has really given her the chance to push herself to the extreme, and her training has seriously impressed the cast and crew of the movie.

Alicia Vikander's Tulip Fever Took A Long Path To The Cinema


Alicia Vikander

In her new film Tulip Fever, Alicia Vikander plays a married woman in 17th century Amsterdam who falls for an artist as he paints her portrait. Although perhaps it isn't strictly accurate to call it a "new" film. Shot in 2014, Tulip Fever has been moved around the release schedule for the past three years, as the producers sought just the right slot.

Some have suggested this means that there's something wrong with the movie. But producer Alison Owen insists that this is "a precious jewel of a film that I know people would love and enjoy if they got to see it."

When Angelina Jolie took on the character for the first live action film adaptation in 2001 ('Lara Croft: Tomb Raider') and its 2003 sequel ('The Cradle of Life'), she very much reflected the 90s look of the original heroine. That means to say, is was all about hotpants, a big bust and really tight shirts.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Steals The Show At 2016 Empire Awards


Star Wars Daisy Ridley Jj Abrams Alicia Vikander

Just when you thought film awards season was over, the 2016 Jameson Empire Awards rolled in last night (March 20th 2016) to heap some much deserved praise on the epic of the year 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'; a film which didn't manage to land an Oscar and wasn't even recognised at the Golden Globes in spite of its enormous appeal.

The film won Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, beating 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2', 'Jurassic World', 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'The Martian'. However, it was beaten to Best Film (presented by Sky Movies) over all by Leonardo DiCaprio's 'The Revenant'. It also lost out on Best Costume Design to 'Mad Max: Fury Road', which was another major winner at the awards show when it also landed Best Soundtrack.

Burnt Review

Good

Strong characters help hold the attention as this overcooked drama develops, but in the end it feels so concocted that it's difficult to believe. While there's plenty of potential in the premise, the film becomes distracted by irrelevant subplots that try to stir up some tension but never quite manage it. And for a movie about food, the cuisine is simply too abstract to be mouthwatering.

At the centre is Adam (Bradley Cooper), a bad boy chef whose partying ways ended his high-flying career in Paris. After a period of penance in New Orleans, he moves to London to start again, with the goal of finally getting his elusive third Michelin star. Since he has alienated his friends, he turns to Tony (Daniel Bruhl), a guy who always had a soft spot for him and happens to be running a posh restaurant, which Adam quickly takes over. He rustles up some old colleagues (Omar Sy and Riccardo Scamarcio) and hires hot-shot Helene (Sienna Miller) as his sous chef. But his demanding perfectionism is keeping things from running very smoothly.

This set-up is ripe for both black comedy and soul-searching drama, and yet writer Steven Knight throws in irrelevant sideroads including a mandated therapist (the wonderful Emma Thompson), a bitter rival (a jagged Matthew Rhys), a couple of randomly violent loan sharks and a precocious little girl. Even though the actors do what they can to make every scene intriguing, none of these story elements add anything to the overall film. Still, Cooper holds the movie together with sheer charisma, even if his sudden transition from absolute tyrant to cuddly sweetheart isn't terribly convincing. At least he adds some surprising textures to his scenes, and indulges in sparky banter with those around him. And while Miller is solid in her thankless role, even she can't breathe life into such a thinly developed romance.

British star Carey Mulligan was among the winners at the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards for her central role as Maud in the new movie Suffragette, a laundry worker who joins the fight for the right for women to vote.

The 30 year old star, who gave birth to her first child with husband Marcus Mumford just a few months ago, won Best Actress at the 2015 edition of the gongs, which are the first major ceremony in a long run of black-tie events leading up to the Academy Awards on February 28th.

The Hollywood Film Awards winners are announced in advance and are not televised, but prominently features movies not on general release and are a reasonable indicator of what will be on offer during awards season.

The Danish Girl Trailer


Einar Wegener is a Danish artist, apparently happily married to wife of the same occupation Gerda. One day, Gerda persuades her husband to assist her as a female model while she paints, dressing up in a dress and stockings. An unexpected wave of clarity washes over Einar, who readily agrees to continue posing for Gerda. Dubbing the female persona Lili, Gerda takes her out for fun - but when it seems Lili is falling for her childhood friend Hans Axgil, she is heartbroken. She eventually understands that her husband is actually a woman in the wrong body, and stands by her woman as she undertakes groundbreaking gender reassignment surgery; a series of operations that could threaten her very life, let alone her marriage.

Restauranteering is not a profession that should be taken lightly. Indeed, it's less of a job and more of a way of life for Adam Jones, who has wanted to become the greatest chef the world has ever seen since as long as he can remember. He was just 16-years-old when he left school to go to Paris and achieve his dream; becoming a Michelin star chef infamous across the Parisian culinary scene. But his rise to success came much too soon, and it wasn't long before his dream began to crumble around him, beaten by a life of drugs, violence, and volatile behaviour. With many of his opponents thinking him dead, he returns to London a new man to reignite his passion, earn a third Michelin star, and open the best restaurant in the world. All he needs is a talented team behind him, who is willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Review

Very Good

Adopting a deliciously groovy vibe, Guy Ritchie turns the iconic 1960s TV spy series into a flashy action-comedy. There's absolutely nothing to this frothy romp, but it's packed with hilarious characters and lively action scenes that continually surprise the audience with inventive twists on the genre. And it just might turn the suave, fast-talking Henry Cavill and the brooding, engaging Armie Hammer into A-list stars in the process.

It opens in 1963 East Berlin, where ex-con CIA operative Napoleon Solo (Cavill) is trying to help sexy mechanic Gaby (Alicia Vikander) escape to the West, chased by his nemesis, KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). Gaby's father is a nuclear scientist on the verge of selling his secrets to a rogue Italian billionaire couple (Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani) so, even though the Cold War is raging, the CIA and KGB decide to cooperate on the mission. This means that rivals Solo and Illya must work together as they travel to Rome with Gaby, making contact with British agent Waverly (Hugh Grant) and Gaby's creepy uncle (Sylvester Goth). And of course, there are unexpected wrinkles along the way.

As always, Ritchie cleverly subverts each set-piece, letting chase scenes unfold in carefully staged but enjoyably inventive ways, often putting the real action in the background while the characters act as if they're above all this nastiness. As popcorn entertainment, this is first-rate, with a cast that's more than up to the challenge. Cavill is particularly smooth, a Bond-style spy who seems unable to resist seducing every pretty woman he meets. Hammer's role is pricklier, since Illya never quite relaxes, although his petulance makes him just as likeable. Their interplay is snappy and often very funny but, unlike Ritchie's similarly toned Sherlock Holmes movies, this strains to avoid being a bromance. Solo and Illya continue to spy on each other right to the end, maintaining their Cold War distance even as they team up to save the world.
