Hercules - Extended Trailer


Following his deadly ordeal of being put through the Twelve Labours by his father Zeus and his people, all Hercules wants from life is to rest quietly with a loving family. Unfortunately for him, now is not the time for resting as the gods have delivered another bout of chaos to the world. Being well known by all as a man with all the strength of a god, Hercules is forced to lead a battle against a new menace as the King of Thrace gets him and some like minded warriors to band together as the world's most formidable army. They must defeat a powerful rival general as the vicious descendents of Hades infect the land. It's a deadly mission, the minions of hell being immortal and ruthless, and their defeat can only be accomplished by someone with power above the mortal realm.

The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet Trailer


T.S. Spivet is a child prodigy fascinated with the world of cartography and invention and only 10-years-old. He lives in an isolated part of Montana on a ranch with his cowboy-obsessed father and his entomologist mother, as well as his teenage sister Gracie and his twin brother Layton. One day, he receives a telephone call from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. who wish to offer him the prestigious Baird Prize for his latest invention. He wants to accept the award, despite the institute thinking he is an adult scientist, and so he sets out on a journey by himself, intending to catch the next freight train. Meanwhile, however, he is haunted by a dark secret involving Layton, and he must learn to come to terms with past events.

Brick Mansions Trailer


Brick Mansions is a Detroit district overrun with violent crime, inhabited by gangs and fuelled by drugs; an area so brutal, authorities were forced to build a wall around it. One particularly agile resident named Lino has managed to anger some of the more virile crime bosses by possessing a strong moral compass regarding the treatment of his neighbours. As he is quickly hunted down, it seems he is no match for his enemies - though he could be a match for the city's law enforcement. Damien is a cop enlisted to go undercover after one gang leader named Tremaine holds the Mayor and half the city hostage. He must team up (and keep up) with Lino if they want to stop Tremaine from destroying the city with a seriously destructive neutron bomb. Initially hostile towards each other, can Damien and Lino cast aside their differences to save their people?

Hercules - Trailer Trailer


Hercules is a bitter and haunted demi-god filled with resentment for the people and the gods (including his father Zeus) who put him through the Twelve Labours; a series of arduous tasks that saw him dance with death on a number of occasions. Now, alone and with no family of any kind to turn to, his only comfort in the world is fighting to the death in battle, alongside a group of other like-minded warriors who similarly have nothing left to live for. However, they face a challenge of a more ominous kind when the King of Thrace enlists them to train up as the most formidable army ever created in a bid to overthrow a powerful general. This is a fight of a different kind for Hercules; he may have more strength than the average man, but just how far will that take him?

Dwayne Johnson stars as Hercules in the latest adaptation of the Greco-Roman myth. Based on the graphic novel 'Hercules: The Thracian Wars' by Steve Moore, the movie has been directed by Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour', 'X-Men: The Last Stand', 'Red Dragon') and written by Ryan Condal ('The Sixth Gun') and Evan Spiliotopoulos ('The Nutty Professor', 'Battle for Terra'). 'Hercules' is scheduled for UK cinematic release on August 8th 2014.

When what he thought was a safe haven, Camp Half-Blood, is suddenly overrun by some deadly vengeful enemies who can only be defeated if her can locate the magical Golden Fleece. He and his friends Annabeth Chase and Tyson embark on a dangerous mission to bring down the reawakened spirit of Kronos, the father of Hades, and in doing so abandons his pride as he enlists the help of the arrogant and very feisty Clarisse La Rue, daughter of the God of War, who is his only hope at staying alive.

Pacific Rim Trailer


It has always been thought that alien life would arrive on the planet from space, but when colossal monsters arise from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, it soon becomes clear that mankind are facing a threat unlike what they have ever anticipated before. The creatures are known as Kaiju and manage to effortlessly destroy cities around them, use up resources and take away millions of lives. While the Earth's population worry that the apocalypse has finally arrived, the military are less than willing to accept that fate and build enormous robots called Jaegers in an attempt to fight back. They work by having two people controlling them from the inside with their minds linked. However, even they are no match against the Kaiju and the defenders of Earth decide that they must enlist the help of an ex-pilot and untested trainee to bring to life an early model of a Jaeger that has earned much recognition despite being potentially just as useless as the others in this fight for the survival of Earth.

Directing and co-writing this action-packed sci-fi flick is Guillermo Del Toro ('Pan's Labyrinth', 'Hellboy') with writing credits also from Travis Beacham ('Clash of the Titans', 'Dog Days of Summer'). It is due to be released next summer; July 12th 2013.

Director: Guillermo del Toro

Sherlock Holmes Review


Excellent

Raucous, rough energy infuses this film from start to finish, carrying us along even when the slightly over-egged script starts to feel somewhat slender. And it's the terrific chemistry between Downey and Law that makes the film worth seeing.

In Victorian London, private investigator Sherlock Holmes (Downey) is about to lose his partner John Watson (Law), who's moving out to marry his fiancee (Reilly). But the case they've just finished, involving a series of secret-society murders carried out by Lord Blackwood (Strong), just won't end.
Now Holmes' ex Irene (McAdams) is on the scene as well, and things are getting increasingly freaky with more murders and a conspiracy that could lead to a takeover of the whole government. But Holmes' fierce powers of observation are on the case.

The producers blast new life into fusty cinematic stalwarts with their canny choice of director and stars. In many ways this feels more faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle's stories than the dry, cerebral films we're used to. Downey perfectly combines the character's edgy physicality, brainy powers of deduction and sardonic wit. And he and Law are like an hilarious bickering married couple that has lived together just a little too long.

No one else in the cast quite registers. McAdams and Reilly at least play strong-minded women, while Strong glowers satanically from the shadows and Marsan (as the chief inspector) tuts amusingly. The script is mostly smoke and mirrors, weaving in all manner of Holmes' lore, from the original story details to playful references to previous film incarnations (although Holmes never says "elementary", and he never wears a deerstalker).

And if the script isn't nearly as smart as it thinks it is, at least it contains a few nifty twists, including one of the more enjoyable resolutions in recent blockbuster memory. But what we're here for are the fireworks between Downey and Law, a couple of feisty-sexy women and Ritchie-isms like nasty slo-mo fight sequences, witty editing and suggestive lighting. He also offers plenty of refreshingly abrasive vigour to go with the cool effects and a zingy Hans Zimmer score. Bring on the next case.
