In 1980, a group of six armed terrorists storm the Iranian embassy in London, taking no less than 26 innocent people hostage. What none of them could foresee is that this would turn into an almost week-long battle between the gunmen and a team of SAS soldiers, as the latter try to navigate the 6 floor, 30 room fortress in a bid to take down the attackers who are demanding the release of prisoners in the Khuzestan Province. It's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's chance to publicly show her country how she deals with terrorist attacks and so a BBC news crew documents the entire debacle from the streets outside. Tragically, soldiers were not able to secure the safe release of all the hostages and two of them perished, along with five of the six terrorists.

The latest try at bringing the comic book franchise to life on the big screen turned off critics and turned away audiences over the weekend.
The latest Fantastic Four movie starring Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller opened at the US box office with a disappointing $26.2 million over the weekend, taking the number two spot and falling way short of its predicted $40million opening. The film had a budget of around $120 million and studio Fox has already lined-up a sequel for 2017.
Fantastic Four fell short of expectations at the US box office.
Fantastic Four will now go down as one of the worst openings for a film based on a Marvel property, taking a little more than Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance, which opened with $22.1 million in 2012. The film suffered from bad reviews and currently holds an embarrassing 8% rating on review site Rotten Tomatoes.

The Marvel Comics adaptation has opened to extremely poor critical notices.
Director Josh Trank has taken action to distance himself from the critically derided reboot of Fantastic Four, appearing to claim that the studio, 20th Century Fox, was at fault for interfering with his “fantastic” vision of the movie.
The movie, which is the third such attempt to launch a big screen franchise out of the Marvel Comics tale, has been roundly panned by reviewers in the last couple of days since its August 4th premiere. Starring Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan and Toby Kebbell, it currently holds a 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the worst reviewed superhero movie of 2015 thusfar.
Toby Kebbell stars as the villain in the new 'Fantastic Four' movie
Until the special effects take over in the final act, this is an unusually gritty, grounded superhero thriller, with characters who are so believable that the wacky science almost seems to make sense. This is Marvel's very first franchise, and the filmmakers are unable to resist the pressure to indulge in an overblown finale, and the digital mayhem they give into is oddly unexciting. So as an origin story, this film is more involving than most, but the superhero action itself feels rather limp.
It opens as an exploration of the school friendship between the misunderstood genius Reed (Miles Teller) and junkyard bully Ben (Jamie Bell), whose teleportation science experiment gets them in trouble. But Dr Storm (Reg R. Cathey) sees that their work solves a problem he has encountered in his own experiments, so he brings Reed to New York to join his well-funded, high-tech team. Working with Victor (Toby Kebbell) and Storm's children Sue and Johnny (Kate Mara and Michael B. Jordan), Reed builds a full-size teleporter that succeeds in crossing over to another dimension. And Ben joins the crew for an illicit first voyage that goes spectacularly wrong, leaving Victor on the other side, while Reed, Ben, Sue and Johnny emerge with superpowers caused by altered DNA. The big boss (Tim Blake Nelson) immediately starts training them for military action, but Reed remains determined to make things right.
A strong cast helps all of this play out with remarkable introspection, letting each character develop an organic back-story that brings them together as an uneasy team. The inter-relationships are complex and engaging, veering from rivalry to camaraderie. Teller anchors the film with a layered performance as a smart, troubled guy who struggles to maintain friendships as he focusses on his work. Mara and Johnson add some feisty attitude, but it's Bell and Kebbell who provide the spark of personality that makes this crew so engaging. Then both of them become animated characters (Bell as The Thing and Kebbell as Dr Doom) without even a hint of the actors visible underneath. And the movie never quite recovers its momentum.

After years of work and millions of dollars in funding, Dr. Storm has come up with nothing to show for all his work into interdimensional travel. That is, until the arrival of Reed Richards (Miles Teller), who demonstrates such an understanding of the science they are studying, that the project is finished shortly afterwards. Now Reed, Storm's children Susan (Kate Mara) and Johnny (Michael B. Jordan) and Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) are sent to test the machine. But something goes wrong - having successfully travelled to another dimension, the four children are changed forever, in ways they never could have imagined.

From 'Whiplash' to 'The Fantastic Four', we're looking forward to seeing more of Miles Teller.
Miles Teller first gained our attention as hedonistic ladies man Sutter in the 2013 rom-com 'The Spectacular Now', before going on to another comedy love story 'That Awkward Moment' earlier this year. Now, Miles Teller is exploring a range of projects over the coming months.
He was convincing as a rom-com fixture until he played the nasty piece of work Peter in 'Divergent', so now we're pretty sure his versatility renders him unpredictable. One look at his upcoming movie projects and you'd never think they were all starring the same guy.
Another Hollywood couple calls it quits, sadly this time it's Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell.
It's not usual for a Hollywood split to shock us, but the announcement that Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell are separating after just 19 months of marriage did cause us to let out a slight gasp. Perhaps there was just some part of us that believed these two crazy kids would make it, despite the matching tattoos. After all, the pair welcomed their first child together just 10 months ago. But looking back over their relationship, maybe the signs of bad things to come where there from the get go for the young couple.
Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have separated after just 19 months of marriage
The representative for the couple announced their separation via US Weekly, giving no clues as to the reason behind the split. In the statement, the usual Hollywood separation phrases were given, "mutual decision", "co-parenting" and of course "remain close friends" and it ended by saying that the two "love each other so much but it just wasn't right.”
