Kong: Skull Island Trailer


James Conrad is a British captain who leads an international envoy to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to charter some of Earth's most distant and mysterious lands. The captain is accompanied by a number of other members on the team including Randa, a government official who appears to know a few of the islands mysteries; a female photojournalist called Weaver who is known for her war photography; US Lieutenant Colonel Packard who is in charge of the UK troops who are also part of the mission.

As the vessel approaches the island, spirits are high and the team are ready to take choppers to the green land known as Skull Island. Soon their mission becomes disastrous as the inhabitants are far more feral than they could ever imagine. Equipped with guns, Ammunition and rocket launchers, the humans feel that they're able to overcome whatever may await them on the island but the truth is that they could never come face to face and beat the beast that awaits them.

Kong: Skull Island is the latest reboot of the King Kong story and it focusses on the start of the story originally told in 1933.

Corey Hawkins

Fans of the '24' franchise can get excited once again as the CTU returns with all new protagonists. Corey Hawkins is set to play the lead role in the forthcoming '24: Legacy' series, the premiere date for which is yet to be announced. In fact, we're still waiting on the complete cast announcements.

Corey HawkinsCorey Hawkins to star in '24: Legacy''

Corey Hawkins had his break-out role last year as Dr. Dre in the critically acclaimed 'Straight Outta Compton', and now he's turned his sights on the small screen. Taking over from Kiefer Sutherland's character Jack Bauer, Hawkins will play former military man Eric Carter who joins up with the Counter Terrorist Unit to save America from a major attack. Carter doesn't have the cleanest pre-army past, but now he's a serious worker living in Virginia with his wife Nicole. However, it's not always easy to escape the dark corners of forgotten times.

Straight Outta Compton Review

Very Good

This biopic gallops through the career of groundbreaking gangsta rappers N.W.A, working its way through a checklist of the major events. There isn't much of a plot otherwise, which can be bewildering for anyone who doesn't know all of the people portrayed on-screen. But the acting and filmmaking is confident, which makes the movie feel strikingly relevant.

It opens in late-1980s South Central Los Angeles, a time when rap was dismissed as a little more than a violent chant. But artist Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) launches Ruthless Records with his manager Jerry Hiller (Paul Giamatti) as a way to promote the music he makes with his friends Ice Cube (O'Shea Jackson Jr.), Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins), DJ Yella (Neil Brown Jr.) and MC Ren (Aldis Hodge). Working together as N.W.A, their album Straight Outta Compton strikes a nerve, selling millions even though its controversial lyrics make it impossible to play on the radio. As money starts rolling in, problems develop in the group. Cube is annoyed that Jerry isn't paying him a fair share of the royalties, so he goes solo. And later Dre also leaves to start his own label, Death Row, with hothead friend Suge Knight (R. Marcos Taylor).

The movie is structured as a series of set-pieces, usually drawing on the musician's camaraderie, which turns into rivalry, sparking tensions and some sort of verbal or musical battle, which escalates into physical violence. These are alpha-males who don't like being told what to do, so they struggle to trust each other. Their clashes begin to feel somewhat repetitive, but the actors are excellent.

Dr Dre And Ice Cube Tell Their Story In Straight Outta Compton


Dr Dre Ice Cube Corey Hawkins

When the idea was first raised for a biopic about pioneering gangster rappers NWA, everyone knew they had to get it right. After years in the works, Straight Outta Compton tells the story of Dr Dre, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren.

O'Shea Jackson Jr. in 'Straight Outta Compton''Straight Outta Compton' is O'Shea Jackson Jr.'s first venture into acting

"Anybody can make an NWA movie," says Ice Cube. "I can't stop anybody from making one, so I said, 'If y'all wanna do it right, you should do it with us.' And they came to their senses and started developing the movie with us."

Straight Outta Compton - Redband Trailer


In the 1980s, the streets of Compton were brutal. Five friends were brought together by their raw talent for translating the struggles they faced into powerful, poetic music. As the group came together, adopting the name N.W.A., their world steadily began to change around them, becoming a far darker place. And with the release of one particularly controversial song in the wake of a horrific tragedy, N.W.A. were thrown into the public eye, and became the forerunners of a revolution. But looking back, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella still saw themselves as just a group of friends, straight outta Compton.
