'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.

The Forest Spoke To Natalie Dormer


Natalie Dormer

The Forest is Natalie Dormer's next big-screen outing, "It's a psychological, thinking-person horror movie," she says of the film, in which she plays a woman who travels to Japan to rescue her twin sister. "I really believe in the power of a story centred on the relationship between two siblings. We can all relate to receiving a phone call saying that a loved one is in trouble, in pain. I think that most of us will get on a plane and do something like this. And we all have regrets, things that we could change in our past if we could. That's what it is to be human."

Natalie Dormer stars in The Forest

For the 34-year-old English actress, it's important that she's playing a real character in whatever project she chooses. "I want to play real women," Dormer says. "When I read The Forest that's what I saw on the page in Sara. She seems very confident, but that comes, actually, from a deep, deep insecurity. So that was something that really spoke to me. And the interesting thing for me is to play Jess as well, who has dealt with this trauma that the girls have by going to the completely opposite end of the spectrum, by being the wild child."

Natalie Dormer Jennifer Lawrence Francis Lawrence Donald Sutherland

The final instalment of The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay Part 2 is said to be the saga’s most violent film yet, with scenes showing the bombing of young children and a public execution. But director Francis Lawrence and star Natalie Dormer have defend the film’s level of violence, saying they didn't want to shy away from the book’s original content.

“In the visual interpretation of the stories, I wanted to make sure that we were again focusing on the emotional consequence of it, not the carnage, not the blood… you’ll notice there’s very, very little blood. That’s not what I wanted to explore, that’s not what I’m interested in,” said director Francis Lawrence.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 Final Trailer


Katniss Everdeen is determined to take down President Snow once and for all. Too many lives have been sacrificed and too many homes destroyed while the Capitol has brainwashed and controlled the people of Panem. Now re-united with Peeta after his rescue from Snow's clutches, Katniss gathers her friends from District 13 - Gale, Finnick and Cressida - and sets out on the ultimate mission to free Panem, and fight Snow to the death. But it seems it's not only Snow that wants Katniss dead, as she becomes increasingly paranoid about some of the supposed rebels. Facing increasing uncertainty, more tragedy and some of the worse warfare she could possibly imagine, Katniss starts to realise that ending the nightmare won't end the fear or the collective sorrow.

Natalie Dormer Claims Both Men And Women Are Subject To Objectification In Film Industry


Natalie Dormer Game Of Thrones Aidan Turner Maggie Gyllenhaal

Game Of Thrones’ star Natalie Dormer has spoken out in defence of the movie and TV industry over claims about the objectification of women, claiming that men are just as likely to be under scrutiny for their age and physical appearance.

Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell in the massively popular HBO fantasy drama, has told the Radio Times in a new interview that the visual nature of television and film inevitably means that both sexes will be under the microscope when it comes to their looks.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 - Join The Revolution Trailer


Having successfully rescued Peeta and the other Hunger Games victors, Katniss Everdeen is feeling the strain of being the Mockingjay for the rebel group of District 13. The propaganda is exhausting, and she is starting to become uncertain about who are the heroes and who are the villains. While victory over the Capitol looks in the rebels' favour, Katniss is becoming increasingly suspicious of President Coin - a suspicion which becomes all the more intense when she confronts the captured Panem leader President Snow. He seems intent on killing her, but he's not the only one. When the rebels' methods are shown to be just as hostile as the Capitol, Katniss has to decide which path the take and with the oncoming final Hunger Games, her decision is fated to change her life forever.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Review


Excellent

This four-part franchise, based on the Suzanne Collins novels, turns very dark with this strikingly bold third film, which once again makes the most of perspective to recount a parable about normal people rising up against oppression. This may be a sci-fi apocalypse, but the story is packed with present-day resonance and messy characters who are sometimes unnervingly easy to identify with. So while things get very grim in this chapter, it's still a hugely engaging film, packed with real-life humour and emotion. And it makes Mockingjay Part 2 unmissable.

The story picks up not long after the chaos of the Quarter Quell, when Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) realised that she had been a pawn for a planned revolution that cast her as the iconic Mockingjay. Now in hiding, the rebels need her to assume the role publicly, but she has other concerns. So she makes a deal with rebel President Coin (Julianne Moore) and her sidekick Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) that she'll help them if they guarantee safety for the captured Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), who has apparently been brainwashed so he can be used for propaganda purposes by the Capitol's President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Working with her old hunting buddy Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Katniss takes on the Mockingjay role, locking horns with Snow as the rebellion grows in strength.

Once again, director Francis Lawrence vividly tells the story from Katniss' imperfect point of view. This is a teen consumed with anger and confusion, and she can't figure out why she's so inspiring to everyone who looks at her. But she's beginning to understand her impact and how she can use it to help the people she loves. This makes her heroism remarkably human, rather than the usual noble movie self-sacrifice. And Jennifer Lawrence brings so much depth to Katniss that the character transcends even the most jarring plot points. Her internal journey also makes this much more than yet another dystopian teen adventure.

The Riot Club Review


Good

Solid acting and adept filmmaking help make up for the fact that this film asks us to spend a couple of hours in the presence of a group of truly despicable characters. They're played by some of the brightest (and most beautiful) rising stars in the movies at the moment, but each one of these young men is vile to the core. So the fact that these are supposed to be Britain's brightest and best hope for the future makes the film pretty terrifying.

It's set at Oxford University, where the elite Riot Club (including Douglas Booth, Sam Reid, Freddie Fox, Matthew Beard, Ben Schnetzer and Olly Alexander) are on the lookout for wealthy white students to complete their 10-man membership. They find suitable candidates in new arrivals: the sneering Alistair (Sam Claflin) and conflicted Miles (Max Irons), whose one drawback is that he's seeing a common girl (Holliday Grainger). After the rigorous initiation process, Alistair and Miles are welcomed to the hedonistic gang at a lavish dinner in the private room of a country pub. But things turn nasty as they drunkenly hurl abuse at the pub manager (Gordon Brown), his daughter (Jessica Brown Findlay) and a high-class hooker (Natalie Dormer) they hire for the night.

Based on the play Posh by screenwriter Laura Wade, the film is centred around this increasingly chaotic dinner party. Although nothing that happens is particularly surprising, because these young men are such relentlessly bigoted, misogynist snobs that it's impossible to believe they belong anywhere other than prison. They certainly don't deserve their self-appointed status as the top students at Oxford, who are getting debauchery out of their systems before taking the lead in British politics and business. But then, that's precisely Wade's point, and she makes it loudly. Thankfully, director Lone Scherfig balances things by offering glimpses into these young men's dark souls while skilfully capturing the old-world subculture and a strong sense of irony.
