Force Majeure Review


Excellent

With unnerving subtlety, this acclaimed Swedish drama takes a startlingly honest look at the underlying fragility of family connections. Pivoting around a split-second of panic, the film mixes earthy honesty and wrenching emotions to explore the pressure of gender roles. It's strikingly well-shot and played with unusual openness by a solid cast. And it's such a razor sharp depiction that it can't help but chill the audience to the bone.

The events unfold in the French Alps, as a Swedish family enjoys a skiing holiday amid spectacular mountain peaks and freshly fallen snow. Then one morning while having breakfast on an outdoor terrace enjoying the view, a controlled avalanche surges far too close for comfort. When the snowy powder settles, it becomes clear that the parents had very different reactions in that moment of fear: Tomas (Johannes Bah Kuhnke) dropped everything and ran, while Ebba (Lisa Loven Kongsli) tried to protect their children Vera and Harry (real siblings Clara and Vincent Wettergren). Suddenly there's a fissure in their relationship, and neither Tomas nor Ebba can cope with the implications, privately beginning to wonder whether their marriage can survive the rest of the week.

Filmmaker Ostlund (Play) explores this heart-stopping event with remarkable complexity, continually shifting the audience's sympathies. Should Tomas be written off for a moment of blind panic? Can Ebba trust him to be there for her and the children when they need him? And as the plot develops, things only become stickier. First, the kids begin acting out as they sense their world is starting to shake. Then Tomas and Ebba turn to their friends (Kristofer Hivju, Fanni Metelius and Karin Myernberg Faber) for advice and support, but only find that things are crumbling further. On the other hand, perhaps if they can find a way to be open with each other there may be some hope yet.

In Order Of Disappearance Trailer


After receiving the news that his son has tragically died from a heroine overdoes, citizen of the year and snow plow driver, Nils (Stellan Skarsgard) sets out to disprove the official report. He steadily uncovers evidence of a turf war between sinister crime boss "The Count" and his rivals from Serbia. It is a turf war which claimed the life of his son, and therefore becomes his problem. Armed with all the tricks of the snow plow trade and a sawn-off hunting rifle, Nils wages his own, bitter war on the criminal underworld, racking up an impressive body count through shear beginner's luck.

The New York premiere of Will Smith's new action movie 'After Earth' was almost like a reunion for the actor as several old friends showed up to offer their support.

The event was truly a field day for photographers with celebrities from Wyclef Jean to Bruce Willis making their appearances on the red carpet. Will Smith was the star attraction alongside his son and co-star Jaden Smith, and he also brought along his other two children Willow Smith and Trey Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. Joining them were 'After Earth' director M. Night Shyamalan (the man behind 'The Sixth Sense' and 'The Village'), Smith's co-star Kristofer Hivju, Oscar-nominated director Spike Lee and rapper 50 Cent. There was even an appearance from Smith's former 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' co-star Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Will's rich and very spoilt cousin Carlton Banks. Another notable attendee was genuine NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin, best known for being the second man to walk on the moon in 1969.

Game of Thrones season 3 is on it’s way, and if the dark television adverts aren’t enough to convince you, then the new trailer will have to do. And it’s good; oh it’s good. If you thought seasons 1 and 2 were big, then it’s about to get bigger.

We’ve only got around a month to go before the season three premiere, so HBO have really made us wait for this trailer. But now it’s here, we can’t wait to see some epic sword sinking action. This new season will see 14 – that’s right – 14 new cast members for the show.

After Earth Trailer


Cypher Raige is a renowned military general who finds himself and his frightened 13-year-old son Kitai in the middle of a deadly asteroid storm while on their aircraft on the way to their home planet Nova Prime to see their family. When they are hit, they end up crashing on to a dangerous and quarantined planet that is revealed to be Earth 1000 years after mankind was evacuated following a set of global disasters. Now it is almost entirely a jungle with savage evolved creatures roaming the land, but Kitai must brave the danger and remember that his fear is only in his mind as he treks into the wild to recover a distress beacon that he must use to call for help as his father is in a critical condition and close to death after being thrown across the ship in the crash. Little do they know that the unfamiliar new earthling species are not the only danger they must face as a brutal alien has now escaped onto the forgotten planet.

'After Earth' has had a string of different screenwriters working on it including director M. Night Shyamalan ('The Sixth Sense', 'Signs', 'The Last Airbender'), Stephen Gaghan ('Traffic', 'Rules of Engagement'), Gary Whitta ('The Book of Eli') plus additional dialogue from Michael Soccio who has previously worked with star Will Smith when he wrote four episodes of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. This sci-fi adventure is set to hit cinemas in the UK from June 7th 2013.

Starring: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Zoe Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo, Kristofer Hivju, David Denman, Sacha Dhawan, Lincoln Lewis, Chris Geere,
