The Young Messiah Trailer


After Mary gives birth to Jesus Christ in Bethlehem, she and her husband Joseph are immediately met with the threat of their child - the son of God - being murdered on the order of King Herod, who hears about the alleged birth of the King of the Jews. The family flee to Alexandria in Egypt for seven years, before returning to Mary's hometown of Nazareth, Israel upon hearing that Herod is dead. Jesus is still unaware of the special circumstances surrounding his birth, unaware that his true father is the Lord in Heaven, and unaware that he possesses power beyond any other man in history. Sooner or later, Mary and Joseph have to open up about the miracle of Jesus' life, but before long they face yet more danger from Herod's equally tyrannical son who is also determined to have Jesus killed.

The World's End Review


Very Good

After Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Pegg and Wright conclude their so-called Cornetto Trilogy with yet another riotously inspired exploration of British culture: the pub crawl. And this time it's apocalyptic! But what makes the film thoroughly endearing is its focus on old friendships that are so well-played that we can't help but find ourselves on-screen even when things get very, very silly.

Pegg plays Gary, the ringleader of his band of school pals. It's been more than 20 years since their failed attempt to visit all 12 pubs in their hometown of Newton Haven. Now approaching 40, Gary hasn't grown up nearly as much as his friends, so it takes a bit of convincing to get the now-settled Andy, Ollie, Pete and Steve (Frost, Freeman, Marsan and Considine) to reunite for a renewed attempt to drink their way through town. Then after the first couple of pints, they start to suspect that something isn't quite right. People are behaving strangely, as if there are alien body snatchers taking over the town. So to avoid attracting attention, the boys just carry on getting blind drunk on their way to the 12th pub, The World's End.

As in the previous films, Pegg and Wright continue developing the characters and their inter-relationships even as everything falls apart around them. Sure, the end of the humanity seems to be upon them, but there's unfinished business between them that needs sorting out, and besides there are more pints to drink. Along the way, things are spiced up as they meet Ollie's sister Sam (Pike), who shocks Gary by refusing to pick up where they left off. They also encounter a former teacher (Brosnan), the town's crazy old man (Bradley) and a shady guy known as The Reverend (Smiley).

The World's End Trailer


Gary King is a 40-year-old still living in his teens and who can't wait to gather up his four friends from his teenage years to complete a pub crawl that they failed 20 years ago as kids in their hometown of Newton Haven. Unfortunately for him, his now corporate, higher-living friends are reluctant to agree though with much pressure from Gary, they eventually relent. However, things aren't exactly as they remember; the townsfolk are acting oddly and they are about to embark on a mission to rescue their childhood home from a threat of galactic proportions. But will they manage to complete their drinking quest and reach 'The World's End' pub as well as save the world from certain destruction?

Doctor Who Story To Be Told In Tv Movie


Harry Potter David Bradley Doctor Who

Harry Potter star David Bradley is to play Doctor Who actor William Hartnell in a drama based on the beginnings of the hit British Tv show.

The sci-fi series marks its 50th anniversary this year (13) and Bbc bosses have commissioned a special feature about the drama as part of the celebrations.

The Tv movie, titled An Adventure in Space and Time, tells the story of the show's creation, and Bradley, best known for playing school caretaker Argus Filch in the Potter films, will play Hartnell - the first actor to tackle the title role.

David Bradley Confirmed To Portray First Doctor Who Actor In 50th Anniversary Biopic


David Bradley Brian Cox Sacha Dhawan

David Bradley has been confirmed as the actor who’ll portray William Hartnell in An Adventure In Space And Time, a biopic specially being made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr Who.

Hartnell was the first actor to bring the Doctor to live on television screens back in 1963, and the Mark Gatiss-penned biopic will focus on the creation and making of that first series of what would go on to be one of the most popular science fiction names in the world. Bradley, one of the stars of Harry Potter, was understandably thrilled to have signed on for such a role. "I'm absolutely thrilled," said the 70-year-old actor in a statement reported by Digital Spy. "Mark has written such a wonderful script not only about the birth of a cultural phenomenon, but a moment in television's history. William Hartnell was one of the finest character actors of our time and as a fan I want to make sure that I do him justice. I'm so looking forward to getting started."

Other stars who’ve been named in the project include Jessica Raine, who’ll be playing Doctor Who’s first producer Verity Lambert. Brian Cox (not the science guy) will be playing Sydney Newman, the Canadian producer who helped devise Doctor Who, and Sacha Dhawan, who directed the first ever show.

I Know You Know Review


Good
With a strongly nostalgic tone, Kerrigan gives this subtly understated thriller a provocative emotional kick. Despite a slightly contrived script, solid performances make the film both haunting and thoughtful.

In 1988 Wales, 11-year-old Jamie (Fuller) loves hanging out with his dad Charlie (Carlyle). After the summer holiday, Jamie starts in a new school with a new bully (Flynn). But he's becoming increasingly aware that his dad has a double life that involves shady friends (Bradley), guns and an arch-nemesis posing as a satellite-TV company. Is Charlie a hitman or a super spy? And will they be moving to a luxurious life in America as promised? Or is something else going on here that Jamie's only beginning to understand?

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix Review


Good

It's gotten to the point where the quality of the films don't really matter: Now I feel like I'm committed to the whole Harry Potter series. I've reviewed the first five now, so by golly, I'm going to stick it out and finish the lot... even though I still can't bring myself to read any of the books. As always, consider yourself warned that I don't know the intricate backstory developed over thousands of pages in J.K. Rowling's writing. And really, I'm happy to keep it that way.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix continues in the tradition of following another year at the Hogwarts School of Wizardry, where Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) has faced nothing but grueling struggle after grueling struggle. His most recent year (Goblet of Fire) saw a friend get killed by his nemesis, the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), who's gaining more power every day and giving Harry severe nightmares. With few exceptions, his friends have largely abandoned him, and the new term comes with even more headaches in the form of Dolores Umbridge (the perfect Imelda Staunton), sent from the Ministry of Magic to teach the defense from the dark arts class and eventually taking over the school as an iron-fisted, fun-crushing bureaucrat.

After much pottering about (ha ha!), the film finally finds its groove as Umbridge goes too far, refusing to teach magic in the classroom, instead preferring to rely on theoretical knowledge so the students can pass their year-end standardized tests. With Voldemort approaching (this guy is always just around the corner), Harry becomes more nervous that he will be unable to defend himself, finally recruiting a handful of students to his cause to teach them what he knows about magical combat. Together they prepare for the day when they know they'll have to use those skills. (In case you haven't seen any of the first four movies, rest assured it isn't far off: This end-of-movie showdown between Harry and the forces of evil has almost become a cliché that pans out every single time.)
