Mindhorn Trailer


In the late 80s, Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) was the most famous police detective on television, but fast-forward to the present day and he's balding, ungroomed and trying to convince himself that he is exactly where he needs to be in life with desperate daily positive affirmations. Fate does have one more adventure in store for the actor, however. A suspected serial killer named Paul Melly (Russell Tovey) has escaped from a secure unit at Darkmoor Hospital and is now taunting Isle of Man police that more will die unless he can speak to Detective Mindhorn. The police are well aware that Mindhorn is just a TV character, but they try their luck and enlist the help of the actor who plays him nonetheless. Unfortunately, Thorncroft turns out to be much less efficient than his onscreen persona, as much as he'd like to believe otherwise.

Nocturnal Animals Trailer


For a short time, Edward and Susan had a happy marriage, they lived in a nice neighbourhood, Susan had a good career and Edward was not far from taking the bar. Susan lives a fast-paced life and as such barely sleeps and Edward would somewhat affectionately tell her that she's a 'nocturnal animal'.

25 years later, Susan has remarried a serial philanderer and her life is far from happy. Unexpectedly a manuscript arrives at her door titled 'Nocturnal Animals' and with the dedication to 'Susan'. She pushes the pages aside and decides to leave them but eventually she can't help but start to read the book that she inspired Edward to write.

The story that unfolds is an incredibly dark tale of murder and revenge and Susan is shocked and traumatised that she would play such a pivotal role in the creation of such a dark piece of work. Susan's interpretation and retelling of the story soon impacts on her life and is unsure how Edward's return into her life will turn out.

Birdman - Exclusive Featurette


The cast and crew of 'Birdman' discuss the visionary filming techniques behind the movie in a short featurette. Among them are director, writer and producer Alejandro González Iñárritu, producers John Lesher and James W. Skotchdopole, and stars Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough and Amy Ryan.

Inarritu explains his initial idea of having the audience see the movie through the eyes of main character Riggan Thomas himself, which resulted in a one-take experience that struck fear in the hearts of the cast who, as Emma reveals, constantly had to be switched on in their roles. We also get a glimpse into the semi-hallucination effects that affect Riggan throughout the movie.

'BiRDMAN (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)' is released in UK cinemas on 1st January 2015.

Birdman - Clips


Riggan Thomas (Michael Keeton) is faced with a serious problem. In an attempt to make himself appear relevant in the new world following his role as television superhero Birdman twenty years ago, he has written a stage adaptation of sixty-year-old book. But his problem is, that the actor hired to star in the production has dropped out. The plays producer, Jake (Zach Galifianakis) is in the process of explaining how much trouble they are in, when Lesley (Naomi Watts) explains that her lover, the famous Mike Shiner (Edward Norton) is ready and willing to step into the role.

Skyfall Wins Big Twice At The Evening Standard Awards


Sam Mendes Daniel Craig Javier Bardem Toby Jones Andrea Riseborough Adele

Skyfall is one of the biggest films to ever come out of Britain, and James Bond is one of its most iconic characters. It's fitting, then, for it to win plenty of awards, especially given that it was largely snubbed by the Oscars. Having won both Film of the Year and Blockbuster of the Year at the Evening Standard Awards, it seems it is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

As the Guardian reports, the Evening Standard editor, Sarah Sands said: "Thanks in part to the extraordinary success of Skyfall - a truly big British movie, delivered with a panache Hollywood could envy - 2012 also highlighted the creativity, vision and talent of a new generation of British film-makers, actors and actresses." 

Taking over a billion dollars worldwide, as well as over £100m domestically, Skyfall wasn't always a sure-fire success, particularly given that the last feature Sam Mendes had directed was Away We Go (a far, far cry from the fast paced, slick style of a Bond movie). However, the combination of Mendes, a Daniel Craig Bond, a Javier Bardem baddy and its title song from woman of the moment, Adele, seems to have been the recipe for success.

Girls Dominate Bafta Rising Star 2013 Awards


Juno Temple Mark Kermode Andrea Riseborough

It was quite a different picture from last year's Bafta Rising Star Awards, where not a single female was recognized. But judges say it was a "happy accident" that 4/5 nominees are female for this year's awards. 

Juno Temple - the daughter of filmmaker Julien - has an increasingly impressive acting CV, and is coming to the fore for last year's Killer Joe. Quoted in the Independent, she expressed her delight that the prize had "gone female" adding: "It's good to redress the balance, to keep things even. When you look at the girls who have been nominated, some of their work is mind-blowing." She also praised the writers and commissioners for some unique opportunities, saying  "We are very lucky to have such diverse character roles coming our way." Another nominee, 31-year old Andrea Riseborough, said: "To even be counted amongst this, and the last seven years' rising star nominees feels utterly phenomenal." Elizabeth Olsen and 24-year old Swede Alicia Vikander complete the female contingent, while Suraj Sharma completes a worthy list of actors. 

Mark Kermode, the film critic who was part of the jury, said: "The number of female nominees was one of those things that happens. There wasn't any sense of doing it as a balance, although it's nice it's worked out like that. It's a happy accident with the emphasis on the happy."

Oblivion Trailer


Commander Jack Harper is part of a military operation to remove important resources from Earth after almost the entirety of the human race had been evacuated following an interplanetary war. Most of the Earth is destroyed, but Jack is stationed nearby in order to repair the drones that that keep an eye on the ravaged planet. However, his mission is made all the more dangerous by the new inhabitants of Earth; savage creatures known as Scavs. Although he only has two more weeks until he can join the rest of humanity, Jack can see that things are getting doubly perilous. Against his orders, he rescues a human being from a spacecraft but things start to get complicated by the fact that she recognises him, despite him not knowing her, and he starts to realise that there are many things he doesn't know or has forgotten about Earth's downfall.

Never Let Me Go Review


Excellent
Based on the Kazuo Ishiguro novel, this haunting drama may be set in a parallel reality, but what it has to say about human hopes and societal ambition is deeply relevant. It's also beautifully directed and acted.

After a medical breakthrough in the 1950s, children are genetically created to grow up to be organ donors, hugely extending the human lifespan. Although the children rarely make it to their mid-20s. One of these is Kathy (Meikle Small, then Mulligan), who grew up in a special school with her best friend Ruth (Purnell, then Knightley). Kathy has a crush on the school oddball Tommy (Rowe, then Garfield), but it's Ruth who makes her move. And this action could have repercussions if organ-harvesting deferrals for couples are granted, as rumour has it.

Brighton Rock Review


Good
Repositioning Graham Greene's 1938 novel to 1964, screenwriter Joffe directs his first feature with a vivid visual flair. Although it's so dark and harsh that none of the characters are even remotely sympathetic.

Pinkie (Riley) is a young member of a Brighton gang that becomes rudderless when its leader is killed by rival mobster Colleoni (Serkis). Second in command Spicer (Davis) tries to take charge, but Pinkie starts escalating things, avenging his boss' death in a way that creates a violent tit-for-tat. He also becomes vulnerable to murder charges. As he romances a young witness (Riseborough) to make sure she doesn't say anything, he angers her boss (Mirren) as well as both Colleoni and his righthand man (Hurt).

Made In Dagenham Review


Excellent
This engaging, warm British comedy-drama not only features extremely vivid characters but also traces the real events that led to the law requiring equal pay for women. And it's also a lot of fun.

In 1968, Rita (Hawkins) works in the Ford plant in Dagenham. She quickly rises to a leadership role on the shopfloor where 187 women work on upholstery. But they earn a fraction of their male counterparts' wages, and their jobs are being reclassified as "unskilled". So Rita and her colleagues (including James, Winstone and Riseborough) team up with their union rep (Hoskins) to demand equality from the Ford execs (including Graves and Schiff). But their strike action has repercussions, catching the attention of government minister Barbara Castle (Richardson).

In 1960's England, there wasn't such a thing as womens rights in the workplace, for the most part they were treated as an underclass. Working for less pay was just one of the pitfalls of working as a woman.
