Jennifer Lawrence Embarks On A Forbidden Romance In 'Red Sparrow'

Jennifer Lawrence stars in the intense new spy thriller 'Red Sparrow', about a group of young men and women who become a part of a rather unconventional section of the world of Russian intelligence when they are trained to use sex to manipulate and trap the enemy.

Dominika Egorova wants nothing more than a future in ballet, and yet her uncle still forces her to join the Russian intelligence service as a member of Sparrow School; a special training camp which encourages agents to use their bodies to seduce, manipulate and ultimately eradicate their targets.

Her first mission involves tracking down an American agent named Nathaniel Nash, played by Joel Edgerton, who is also on his first tour with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He's in charge of some of the most sensitive projects relating to Russian intelligence, but when they collide, a forbidden relationship arises.

Justice League Trailer

The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.

Their Finest Review

Excellent

Skilfully written, directed and acted, this offbeat British period film tells a story that catches our attention with its vivid characters and original setting. Based on real people and situations, it also rings unusually truthful in its combination of comedy and drama. It's another remarkably observant movie from Danish director Lone Scherfig (An Education).

The setting is 1940s London, where the Ministry of Information has assembled a team to make movies to help with the war effort. Catrin (Gemma Arterton) is a secretary who finds herself assigned as a screenwriter, working alongside Buckley and Parfitt (Sam Claflin and Paul Ritter) to write movies for veteran actor Ambrose (Bill Nighy). When Catrin discovers a story about twin sisters who participated in the Dunkirk boatlift, she proposes it as a film idea, and soon the entire crew goes into production, adding an American soldier (Jake Lacy) to the cast to accommodate the wishes of US military allies. This annoys Ambrose, who had been hoping to play the hero himself.

Scherfig directs the film with a light touch that brings the period to vivid life and never bogs down in the intensity of wartorn Britain, recognising the reality while undermining it with brittle humour and messy romance. Catrin has an artist husband (Jack Huston) who isn't happy about her new job, and there are hints of a romantic-comedy subplot between Catrin and Buckley.

The Man Who Knew Infinity - Clip Trailer

Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar was a mathematical prodigy as a child, his knowledge and understanding of numbers far superseding that of the college-age lodgers that lived in his poverty stricken home in Madras, India. It was no wonder then, that the turn of the 20th century saw him admitted to one of Britain's most prestigious educational institutions; Trinity College, Cambridge. Endorsed by veteran professor G. H. Hardy, Ramanujan left his wife and family in India to follow his dream in England, becoming a mathematical pioneer and inventing innumerable theorems that baffled even the most senior of his peers. Unfortunately, Ramanujan and Hardy didn't make the best of collaborators; while the former strongly believed in his faith and often relied on his own intuition, the latter was deeply atheistic and only focused on definitive, provable fact. Thus, he was frequently quick to point out his Indian protege's mistakes of which there were many, amongst some of the genuine mathematical breakthroughs.

Jesse Eisenberg Likens Comic-Con To "Genocide"

Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in the upcoming 'Batman v Superman' movie, was part of a Q&A panel at the San Diego convention.

Jesse Eisenberg apparently didn’t enjoy being at Comic-Con, likening his experience at the massive convention to “some kind of genocide”. We know the crowds can be a little forceful, but seriously?

Giving a reaction to this year’s annual sci-fi and comic fest to the Associated Press on Monday (July 13th), the actor made the somewhat questionable remarks. “It is like being screamed at by thousands of people,” he reflected, “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Teaser Trailer

But times have changed, and people have died since his arrival. The world has had enough of the "false God" Superman (Henry Cavill), but there is already another hero in the world. In Gotham City, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) has spent years and billions of dollars making himself into the greatest detective and the finest crime fighter.

Batman and Superman go head to head in the new trailer for 'Dawn of Justice'.

The first trailer for the DC crossover movie 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has finally arrived - and it's difficult to tell who's most formidable, despite the fact that one superhero has earned his power, and the other was gifted at birth.

Zack Snyder is returning with the sequel to 2013's Superman adventure 'Man Of Steel', and it's our first taste of The Justice League as they hit theaters for the first time. While the plot remains unknown, we can gather that the world has become disillusioned with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill); mistrusting of him given humanity's history with power and corruption, and fearful that their faiths are being questioned.
