Cooties Trailer

Everyone knows fourth grade school children can be little monsters, but what happens when things get way too literal? That's what a bunch of unwitting teachers are about to discover on a seemingly normal working day. Clint Hadson is a substitute teacher who arrives at an elementary school already nervous of what lies ahead. But when some of the children start erupting in strange hives and violently lashing out at each other, it begins to become clear that a horrific virus has hit every pre-pubescent person in the building causing them to launch a vicious, flesh eating assault on their teachers. The grown-ups lock themselves away from the danger and meet one young boy who seems to have evaded the disease. It appears to be a food-borne epidemic resulting from lunchtime's chicken nuggets, and it looks like they're not the only school in the nation with problem pupils...

Snowpiercer Trailer

In a post-apocalyptic world where a deadly ice age has taken over the Earth, there are only a few survivors, all of whom have taken shelter in an enormous train propelled by perpetual motion. While the rich and powerful live in luxury at the front end of the locomotive, the poor have been forced to dwell at the tail with limited supplies by the dictatorial Minister Mason. During a routine deliverance of protein blocks, one tail inhabitant, Curtis, decides to round up a rebel army to invade the front, though no-one could have imagined the amount of bloodshed the ensuing revolt would trigger. In a bid to destroy the barbaric class hierarchy this new life has caused, Curtis plots a major act of disaster. It starts to look like the human race really will be the death of themselves.

The Bitterest Pill: Jay Baruchel And Alison Pill Call Off Engagement

Alison Pill Jay Baruchel

Alison Pill impressed in Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' last year, which of course meant the media also took more of an interest in her personal life. The actress was seemingly going strong with fellow Canadian actor Jay Baruchel, getting engaged after meeting on the set of hockey flick Goon and pencilling in a summer 2012 wedding - which never happened.

The couple were planning to wed in September in Quebec, with the Tropic Thunder actor telling Us Weekly in February, "We're getting married at an ice wine vineyard. Me and the groomsmen will all be wearing kilts! We'll be welcomed in by uilleann pipers. It will be a very small, 70 person wedding, just friends and family." Sounds great. So why didn't it happen?

In an interview with the Times Colonist last month, Baruchel explained, "Unfortunately, we're two busy people who are intrinsically lazy. So in our free time, the last thing we want to do is book flights and organize hotel rooms for people. But it'll happen at some point." No it won't, as he and Alison went their separate ways shortly afterwards. The actor hinted at the split on Twitter last month, writing, "Alone again, naturally. Heartbroken. I won't be on twitter for a while gang. Getting dumped rules," and a source said the long-distance relationship was too much for the young couple. "Working and living in Canada is something that [Baruchel] is very passionate about. He wanted her up there more often, but she really likes Newsroom and the opportunities that are there for her.They were doing the long distance [thing] a lot."

To Rome With Love Review

After Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen remains in a cheery European mode for another breezy comedy tinged with magical realism. This one's actually four separate stories that are very loosely interwoven as people struggle with the unpredictability of romance and fame. And like Midnight in Paris, it shows off Rome in the most beautiful light imaginable.

Baldwin plays an architect who returns to his student stomping grounds and meets Jack (Eisenberg), who seems to be living his old life, even as he falls for a friend (Page) of his girlfriend (Gerwig). Meanwhile, there's Leopoldo (Benigni), a dull businessman who suddenly becomes a celebrity for no reason he can see, is pursued everywhere by the paparazzi and starts to enjoy the high life. Across town, Jerry and Phyllis (Allen and Davis) arrive to meet the fiance (Parenti) of their daughter (Pill). Then Jerry pushes a future in-law (Armiliato) into becoming the latest opera sensation. Finally, a young couple arrives from the country to start a new life in the city, but the husband (Tiberi) ends up having a farcical day out with a sexy prostitute (Cruz) while the wife (Mastronardi) meets her favourite actor (Albanese).

Goon Review

A smart script and vivid characters make this rowdy hockey comedy much more engaging than we expect. But then, director Dowse has a history of turning limited premises into entertaining comedies (see Fubar and It's All Gone Pete Tong).

Nice-guy Doug (Scott) works as a bouncer in Massachusetts, hanging out with his chucklehead pal Pat (Baruchel) and wondering when he'll discover something he's good at, like his doctor brother Ira (Paetku). His parents (Levy and David) don't conceal their disappointment when Doug joins a hockey team as a hard-headed goon whose role is to fight opponents. Then he's picked up by a professional team in Canada, which puts him on a collision course with his idol Ross (Schreiber). And his natural leadership skills strain his friendship with his failing all-star teammate Xavier (Grondin).

Goon Trailer

Midnight In Paris Review

After a run of loose, uneven films, Allen hits the right notes in this funny, astute comedy about artistic creation and personal dreams. And Wilson turns out to be one of the best on-screen Allen surrogates in years.

Blocked writer Gil (Wilson) is visiting Paris with his wife Inez (McAdams) and her high-achieving parents (Fuller and Kennedy). When they run into Inez's know-it-all ex (Sheen), Gil starts having second thoughts about everything. He also begins to wish he'd lived in Paris in the artistic heyday of the 1920s, and is stunned one night to find himself in some kind of magical time-warp, rubbing shoulders with F Scott Fitzgerald (Hiddleston), Gertrude Stein (Bates) and Ernest Hemmingway (Stoll). He also begins to fall for Adriana (Cotillard), a muse for Picasso and Modigliani.

Midnight In Paris Trailer

Gil is a very successful screenwriter in Hollywood and when he announces to Inez that he wishes to write his debut novel, she's supportive bu not exactly taken with the idea. When the opportunity to visit Paris arises, both Inez and Gil - who's had a fascination with the city for many years-, feel it's a perfect vacation.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Review

So uber-hip that young audiences will adore it, this hyperactive film can't decide whether it's a comic book or a videogame. Sure, it's visually whizzy and often very funny, but filmmaker Wright loses the story in the scuffle.

In Toronto, Scott (Cera) is a 22-year-old geek in a rock band. His bandmates (Webber, Pill and Simmons), sister (Kendrick) and flatmate (Culkin) tease him for dating a teenager (Wong), but she's the band's biggest fan. Then he meets Ramona (Winstead), who is literally his dream girl, and to win her hand he has to defeat her seven evil exes in outlandish battles. These include an action movie star (Evans) and a top music promoter (Schwartzman). And one (Routh) is member of a band fronted by Scott's own evil ex (Larson).
