The Circle Trailer


Mae Holland (Emma Watson) is an ambitious young woman who lands a job at one of the most advanced technology corporations in the world led by the charismatic Bailey (Tom Hanks). The Circle is a company like no other, developing state of the art social and scientific technology such as cameras that allow a person's entire life to be streamed online, medicine that can cure almost anything, and tracking that can capture any criminal. The Circle's main opinion is that secrets are bad, privacy is not something that should be desired and all information should be freely available to all, but for a company who puts across such a message, its entire founding is shrouded in mystery. This lack of privacy idea is becoming an increasingly worrying prospect for Mae's mysterious colleague Kalden (John Boyega), who warns her of the implications of this new thought. But will she come to realise this before she sinks deeper into the company? Or will it be too late?

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Leads MTV Movie Awards Nominations


Mtv Movie Awards Star Wars Daisy Ridley John Boyega

Star Wars: The Force Awakens received the most nominations for this year’s Mtv Movie Awards, after being selected in a total of 11 categories ahead of next month’s ceremony in Los Angeles.

Having been snubbed in all five of its categories at the Oscars recently, with no recognition in any of the acting categories or for Best Picture, the slightly more irreverent and pop culture-oriented MTV Movie Awards may see the record-breaking film get better luck.

From Creed To Concussion: Culturally Diverse Suggestions For 2016 Oscar Nominations


Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences John Boyega Michael B. Jordan

Academy Award sceptics are expecting another white-washed year, with diversity in Hollywood still not as broad as we need it to be. If you're one of the cynics, you'd be right to think that way, because even going through the ton of blockbusters seen in 2015, only a handful have any actors of colour.

We thought we'd throw a few of our own suggestions into the mix, ahead of the official announcement of this year's Oscar nominations. They're all deserving of a nod, so fingers crossed for each one of these:
