Star Trek Beyond Review

Excellent

This is where the Star Trek franchise officially shifts from thoughtful drama into thunderous action. Fast & Furious director Justin Lin brings a kinetic energy to this third chapter in the rebooted space saga, leaping between chases and battles to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Combined with constant witty interaction, the film is massively entertaining, even if the plot ultimately feels a bit thin.

 

It's been three years since the crew of the Enterprise started their five-year mission, and they're in need of a break. So they head to the nearest spaceport for some down-time, which is soon interrupted when Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his team (Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin) are called to travel through a dangerous nebula to rescue a kidnapped crew from a villainous thug called Krall (Idris Elba). On arrival, the Enterprise is overwhelmed by Krall's bee-like military swarm. Stranded on a strange planet, the crew teams up with Jaylah (Sofia Boutella), a feisty survivor of one of Krall's earlier attacks. And as they realise the extent of Krall's evil plan, they're not sure that they can stop him.

Jennifer Lawrence Admits Embarrassing Encounter With Harrison Ford


Jennifer Lawrence Harrison Ford Jj Abrams Jack Whitehall Graham Norton

She’s the highest-earning actress in Hollywood, but it seems that not everybody knows who Jennifer Lawrence is, as she revealed an embarrassing recent encounter when Harrison Ford gave her a blank stare of non-recognition.

The 25 year old star of X-Men Apocalypse was chatting with British TV host Graham Norton this week, filming an episode of his chat show that is due to air on Friday evening (May 13th). Recollecting the highly awkward incident, she said it happened earlier this year when she was on a night out with comedian Jack Whitehall, and spotted the Han Solo actor dining with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director Jj Abrams.

'Green Room' Tops Our List Of 2016's Most Exciting Horrors


Patrick Stewart Imogen Poots Stephen King Anton Yelchin Jj Abrams John Goodman Natalie Dormer Sarah Wayne Callies

This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer. 

Green RoomMeet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'

1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Steals The Show At 2016 Empire Awards


Star Wars Daisy Ridley Jj Abrams Alicia Vikander

Just when you thought film awards season was over, the 2016 Jameson Empire Awards rolled in last night (March 20th 2016) to heap some much deserved praise on the epic of the year 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'; a film which didn't manage to land an Oscar and wasn't even recognised at the Golden Globes in spite of its enormous appeal.

Daisy Ridley in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'Daisy Ridley wins for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

The film won Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, beating 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2', 'Jurassic World', 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'The Martian'. However, it was beaten to Best Film (presented by Sky Movies) over all by Leonardo DiCaprio's 'The Revenant'. It also lost out on Best Costume Design to 'Mad Max: Fury Road', which was another major winner at the awards show when it also landed Best Soundtrack.

Rich Cline's 10 Best Films Of 2015


Pixar Charlotte Rampling Tom Courtenay Emily Blunt George Miller Jj Abrams Cate Blanchett Rooney Mara Mark Ruffalo Michael Keaton Rachel McAdams

There were some nice surprises in cinemas this year, with thoughtful thrillers, quality blockbusters, exhilarating franchise reboots and twists on familiar genres... A Girl Walks Home..., Inside Out, 45 Years

10. A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
An Iranian vampire movie shot in California, this super-cool black and white comedy-thriller is witty, scary and sexy. It's also so original that it takes the breath away.

9. Inside Out
Pixar triumphs again with this inventive look inside the mind of a young girl struggling with her emotions. It's colourful, hilariously silly and also the kind of movie that can make grown men cry.

JJ Abrams - Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Interview


An interview with JJ Abrams about Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

As a lifelong fan of Star Wars, getting to direct the new Star Wars film was a dream come trye for Jj Abrams. Here he talks about his latest 'baby' Star Wars: The Force Awakens and explains how when the cast and crew were all ready to shoot in Abu Dhabi after all the prep work was finished and they actually began filming that it was only at that point did the realisation of him making a Star Wars film actually hit him.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Review

Essential

Appealing both to a new generation of viewers and fans of the series since the beginning, this 30-years-later sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi is a thrilling adventure. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams has managed to capture the tone of the original trilogy while telling a story about young, vibrant new characters whose connection to the overall saga deepens intriguingly as events unfurl.

Over the past three decades, the Empire has regrouped, forming the First Order to crush the Old Republic for good. And the plucky Rebellion hasn't offered much resistance since leader Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) disappeared. The Empire's top henchman Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is searching for him just as diligently as the rebel leader General Leia (Carrie Fisher). But the real action is happening out of their grasp, as disaffected storm trooper Finn (John Boyega) teams up with rebel pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) and then feisty scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) and expressive droid BB-8. Along the way, Han Solo and Chewbacca (Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew) find themselves back in the fray. And everyone is startled when there's a strong stirring in the force.

Abrams beautifully recreates the scruffy, clanky mechanical atmosphere of the original trilogy, infusing scenes with witty banter and John William's soaring score to throw us right back into that familiar galaxy. This includes the saga's main themes: the temptation of power, how true heroism is often accidental, and the tension between parents and children. Combine this with a plot that propels itself with a series of unexpected adventures and battles, all centred on the characters, and the film taps strongly into the teen in all of us.

Stars And Stormtroopers Turn Out For 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Premiere [Photos]


Star Wars Jj Abrams

'Star Wars' fever has been rife all year, but nowhere was it more infectious than at the world premiere of 'The Force Awakens' yesterday (December 14th 2015). Packed with fans, celebrities as well as the stars of the movie, this was a film event of titanic proportions.

George Lucas and JJ AbramsGeorge Lucas and Jj Abrams buddy up at the Star Wars premiere

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' made it's premiere in Los Angeles, though the night became so busy that it had to be spread from the Dolby Theater to the TCL Chinese and El Capitan as well. The director of the previous movies George Lucas showed, to the delight of new director and major fan J.J. Abrams. Lucas previously described having to attend the premiere as being like a divorced father at his grown child's wedding, but in this case it seems stepfather Abrams couldn't have been more right for the continuation of the 'Star Wars' project.
