Thank you @WinqMagazine for a wonderful afternoon!
An old trailer with the confirmation we've all been waiting for.
A trailer for the fourth season of 'Sherlock' has been re-released, this time featuring the air date of the first episode 'The Six Thatchers'. There's no new footage available, but creators were more than generous with what they released earlier this year. Fan theories are rife.
Benedict Cumberbatch returns as genius sleuth in 'Sherlock' season 4
The 'new trailer' that everyone's going on about is exactly the same as the initial teaser we saw from San Diego Comic-Con, only this time we get to see the release date. It confirms the heavy amount of speculation that it will air on New Year's Day, just like the 2016 special 'The Abominable Bride'.

Professor Deborah Lipstadt spent her life documenting and writing about the atrocities that happened in concentration camps during the second World War. She wrote numerous books on the subject and in 1993 she eventually published a book on holocaust deniers, a conspiracy theory that was growing in strength mainly down to a few pseudo-historians and Nazi supporters who deny the holocaust ever happened - or at best claim the deaths and gassings have been vastly over exaggerated.
Rightfully documenting the danger of denial, Lipstadt's book brought to light just how such stories take shape to become plausible to readers and creators of such literature. One of the people she named in her book was the British historian David Irving who had written multiple books on Hitler and various parts of the war who supported the notion - amongst many other things - that Hitler didn't kill Jewish people for actively being Jewish and there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz.
Irving sues the professor and her publishers for Liable in the British court system and a long trial is set in motion. Lipstadt and her team of lawyers must find a way to prove in a courtroom setting that the holocaust did happen and Irving's claims (stated in her book) are false and that he is therefore a holocaust denier.

John le Carre's novel is adapted with plenty of inventive style into a remarkably personal thriller, packed with thrills that find suspense in the characters and their predicament rather than pushy movie cliches. It's so sleek and involving that it's easy to ignore the nagging plot holes. We're too busy imagining what we might do in the same situations.
It opens in Marrakech, where poetry professor Perry (Ewan McGregor) and his lawyer wife Gail (Naomie Harris) have gone in an attempt to save their troubled marriage. One evening in a bar, Perry meets the boisterous Dima (Stellan Skarsgard), a Russian who openly admits that he launders money for the mafia. And he asks for Perry's help in delivering information to British intelligence in exchange for his family's safety. Back in London, Perry meets MI6 agent Hector (Damian Lewis), who sees this data as vital to bring down corrupt British politicians. But he has to go rogue to continue on the case, drafting Perry and Gail in to help. Soon they're travelling to France and Switzerland in a dangerous game that puts them in the crosshairs of both a Russian mafia boss (Grigoriy Dobrigyn) and a shifty British MP (Jeremy Northam).
The key point here is that Perry and Gail get involved because they are trying to help Dima's family. This makes everything that happens unusually down-to-earth, with a plot that hinges on the safety of a wife and children rather than the fate of the world. Actually, it's the state of the world that's the villain here, as corrupt Western politicians accept huge money to sidestep the rule of law. Screenwriter Hossein Amini is terrific at keeping the film's focus on the people rather than the plot machinery. And director Susanna White fills the screen with classy touches that are gorgeously shot and edited. The action sequences are unusually clever, avoiding cliches for something more deeply involving (a big shootout is particularly imaginative).

The first 'Sherlock' episode to be set in Victorian London.
By now, fans are used to being drip fed episodes of 'Sherlock' - what more can you expect with two award-winning Hollywood actors in the lead roles? - but ever since Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss revealed the Victorian theme of the next Christmas special, fans have been gasping with thirst.
Now, the official title has been announced! Alongside a launch date (alas, AFTER Christmas). And yet, we're still rather in the dark about what to expect. Here's what we know so far:

The upcoming re-boot is set to hit theatres in February 2016.
If you weren't getting giddy with excitement for the big screen adaptation of 'Dad's Army' next year, you certainly will be now. The new trailer has arrived and we challenge you to keep the smile off your face. Euphemisms, slapstick humour and ridiculous costumes galore, this upcoming movie truly is the best of British comedy.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is the epitome of World War II beauty
Based on Jimmy Perry's enormously popular war comedy series of the same name which ran from 1968 to 1977 and starred Arthur Lowe, Ian Lavender and Arnold Ridley among others, the movie features re-imaginings of all your favourite characters, plus a few new personalities. The likes of bumbling Captain Mainwaring (Toby Jones), mild-mannered Private Godfrey (Michael Gambon) and simple-minded Private Pike (Blake Harrison) will be joined by a stunning and charming journalist named Rose Winters (Catherine Zeta-Jones), and the poshest officer the military has to offer Colonel Theakes (Mark Gatiss).
Everybody's favourite British regiment is back in the new version of Dad's Army. Director Oliver Parker has recruited the much loved classic British TV Show with the help of some of the UK's best known actors. Like the TV show, the movie is set in 1944 and World War II is almost at its peak. The Home Guard is patrolling the streets of Walmington-on-Sea and their spirits are rather dampened by the thought of the imminent invasion. Their only light relief comes from a visit from a beautiful journalist going by the name of Rose Winters. Rose soon has all the men on their best behaviour and all the ladies of the town attempting to up their game. However it's soon 'back to work' for the men when they find out there's a spy living amidst the residents in their small seaside town.

When he was offered the lead role in the runaway hit series 'Sherlock', the actor was initially minded to say no.
It’s the role that turned him into an international phenomenon, but Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he initially came close to turning down ‘Sherlock’.
The English actor, who is currently juggling new fatherhood with playing the lead in ‘Hamlet’, admitted in an interview with CNN’s ‘Talk Asia’ news program on Friday (September 4th) that he had quite a few reservations about accepting the role of the ingenious detective because of the massive fame he thought the “populist role” would bring. He certainly turned out to be correct in that assumption!

Igor Strausman is the less thought about assistant of the insane but brilliant Victor Frankenstein. He's as genius as the passionate medical student he aids in experiments, but more rational when it comes to ethics. He does, however, share Frankenstein's obsession with eternal life and becomes equally as excited when they manage to bring a dead animal back to life. This in itself marks a unique scientific advancement, but Frankenstein's morbid curiosity fails to stop there. He wants to be able to create human life, but doing this involves sourcing body parts from mortuaries - and any other place they can find. Igor's timid nature, though deeply involved passion for the project, keeps him from doing his best to dissuade Frankenstein from completing their 'monster', until it's too late. Now they have a rogue beast on their hands, not to mention the police who are out for blood.

And they're back! The hilarious band of men that put their lives on the line for their country return in an all new adventure on the big screen. World War II is at its very peak during the 1940s and the Home Guard at Walmington-on-Sea are about to have an unusually eventful episode. Hours of patrolling the army base at Dover - trying to keep spirits up on the eve of the soldiers' impending journey to France to take on the Germans - are over for now, because UK intelligence have just uncovered a mysterious secret signal over the radio - apparently someone has been sending messages from Walmington to Berlin, and now nobody can be trusted. The Home Guard aid the mission to uncover the spy - though nobody dares put too much faith in this bumbling lot.

The versatile actor will be appearing an episode penned by his ex-'League of Gentlemen' colleague Mark Gatiss.
The 45 year old actor will appear alongside the current timelord Peter Capaldi and his assistant Jenna Coleman. Shearsmith gave a reaction to the news by saying: “I am absolutely thrilled to be filming ‘Doctor Who’ as Mark Gatiss has written a fantastic role for me in a very scary episode. It has been so exciting to be part of a very singular episode – which, I can say with authority will be unlike any previous episode of ‘Doctor Who’.”
