Justice League - Comic Con Trailer


Bruce Wayne knows that the Earth is under threat from evil forces much worse than any he's - or any other superhero - has previously seen. To defend the people of Earth, Bruce and Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) decide to hunt down some of the most skilled individuals the planet has to offer, each of these people have a special talent and could play a vital part in saving the world.

As well as the new recruits (who include Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash) Batman also recruits Wonder Woman who previously fought alongside Superman whilst trying to beat Lex Luthor's incredibly strong genetically-engineered creature which also killed Superman. The fate of Superman is unclear but given the end of Batman Vs. Superman it's presumed that Superman will return to life albeit potentially temporarily weakened.

The Justice League is DC Comics’ superhero team and it’s thought that a supervillain called Steppenwolf will be their main target – though it’s sure that Lex Luthor will appear and cause as much trouble as he possibly can.

Chris Evans’ Radio 2 breakfast show will not face further action from media regulator Ofcom, after actor Jeremy Irons swore live on the show during a March 18th broadcast. The show had been investigated after a listener complained it had broken rule 2.3 of the broadcasting code regarding offence and offensive language.

Jeremy IronsJeremy Irons swore live on BBC Radio 2 on March 18th, promoting an Ofcom investigation.

Irons had been telling an anecdote about fellow actor John Hurt when he dropped the f-bomb live on air. “John and I were moaning about [good young actors],” Irons began, “And he said, ‘You know what I do when I find a good actor? I say to him, ‘You have a wonderful voice. Have you ever listened to it? And the actor is f***ed’.”

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Review

Good

After 2013's beefy Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder goes even bigger and darker with this sequel, cross-pollenating Clark Kent's story with flashbacks to the origins of Bruce Wayne and his Dark Knight alter-ego. The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous. But it looks amazing and is relentlessly gripping.

After a Bat-origin prologue, the story kicks off with the climactic battle from Man of Steel as seen from the perspective of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), watching his city being destroyed by Superman (Henry Cavill). This further fuels the rage that began when his parents were murdered. And that fire is stoked by the mischievous millionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Meanwhile, Superman/Clark is struggling with how the world is revering him as a god, which is straining his relationship with intrepid reporter Lois (Amy Adams). As these very different vigilante heros head toward a climactic confrontation, Luthor is up to something seriously nefarious. And the ensuing chaos brings another hero into the open, Wonder Woman Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).

While the various plot threads are fascinating, and Snyder maintains a snappy pace, the overall story centres on the fact that Affleck's prickly, bitter Bruce is easily manipulated into doing terrible things, which makes him rather unlikeable. And Cavill's fundamentally good Clark isn't much easier to identify with. Both are also oddly constrained by their costumes and bulked-up physicalities, which leave them unable to move properly. This allows the side characters to steal the show: Adams adds emotion and passion, Eisenberg provides the nutty nastiness, Irons is hilariously cynical as Bruce's butler Alfred, and Fishburne is all bluster as Lois' editor. But in the end, the film belongs to the gorgeous, clear-headed Gadot, instantly making her stand-alone movie the most anticipated superhero project on the horizon.

High-Rise Review

Weak

After a string of award-winning arthouse hits like Kill List and A Field in England, director Ben Wheatley and writer Amy Jump stumble with this adaptation of the 1970s J.G. Ballard novel. The satirical dystopian setting offers buckets of eye-popping visual style, plus outrageously twisted characters the A-list cast have a lot of fun sinking their teeth into. But while the themes are strong, the people on screen are so aggressively loathsome that it's not an easy movie to watch.

It's set in a brutal concrete tower within commuting distance of London, where new resident Robert (Tom Hiddleston) is learning his way around the building's modern, self-contained design. He especially enjoys flirting with his sexy upstairs neighbour Charlotte (Sienna Miller). But the building has a social structure that is creating some serious tension. Wealthy residents like the tower's architect Anthony (Jeremy Irons) live at the top, while economically struggling families like Helen and Richard (Elisabeth Moss and Luke Evans) are closer to the ground, with middle-class families in between. So when the lower floors lose their supply of water and electricity, they revolt against the upper classes, waging all-out war in the hallways.

The political commentary is astute and perhaps even more timely today than it was in 1975, when the novel was written and when the film is set. And each of the characters is full of energy and anger. So it's frustrating that the choppy editing style seems to lose track of people and plot-threads as it shifts around to various angles on the action. This makes all of the violence and sex feel oddly random and excessive, as things get increasingly nasty and each of the people loses the audience's sympathy. Hiddleston has terrific presence, but the film kind of abandons him along the way. While Irons is hamming it up shamelessly, Evans is inexplicably brutal and both Moss and Miller are little more than victims.

High-Rise Trailer


'If only we had enough money to move to a bigger house', an ongoing predicament in most households around the world. Just a little more space, just a little more comfort.  Robert Laing is a young doctor who's currently embracing the single life. 

Robert thinks that a beautiful closed off high-rise apartment is just the place for him to make a home. His flat is located on the twenty-fifth floor which is somewhere in the middle and as Robert settles in and is introduced to his new neighbours, he soon begins to realise that there's a hierarchy within the building -the higher the floor you're on, the more your life is worth. 

The higher you go in the 40-odd floored building, the more palatial your surroundings become. Somehow the man behind the design of the building appears to hold more answers than he's willing to give. Lines are soon crossed and war breaks out between the self-imposed floor class system.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer


Every superhero has a dark side and being 100% human, Batman is in doubt over how genuine Superman actually is. After all, Superman is from a different planet and has incredibly natural powers; powers that could easily destroy our world.

As Lex Luther manipulates Batman and Superman into a deeper and deeper war, the duo find that they are pitted against a force that's much more of a present threat than either of the heroes. They are joined by a number of other heroes (including Wonder Woman and The Flash) on a quest to save earth from immediate danger.

Warner Bros. Pictures releases Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in cinemas 25 March 2016.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice - Official Trailer


What happens when two superheroes with vastly differing opinions come head to head? Well, not very well if Lex Luthor has anything to do with it. Superman believes Batman is a vigilante and the civil liberties of the people of Gotham are 'being trampled on' whilst Batman feels Superman's abilities are blown out of proportion by the media and is far from a fan of his superhero outfit.

Lex Luthor has enough power to manipulate this situation to his benefit and pitches both heroes against one another - Son of Krypton versus Bat of Gotham however, when his plan doesn't go exactly to plan he creates a monster to destroy both men - on the verge of destruction, Batman and Superman are joined by Wonder Woman, Aquaman and other superheroes on their quest to save their city from destruction.

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder and it's a precursor to The Justice League films - which are also written and directed by Snyder.

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.
