Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Toby Jones

However, the audio recently resurfaced, with the quality so good that the BBC decided to recreate it as an animation to be made available to viewers in the BBC online store.

Lawrence And Cooper's 'Serena' Takes Its Time Getting To The Screen


Jennifer Lawrence Bradley Cooper Susanne Bier Toby Jones Rhys Ifans Sean Harris

Filmed in the Czech Republic more than two years ago, the American Depression-era drama 'Serena' took a long time to get to the big screen, during which time its stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence were nominated for Oscars in two other films together: 'Silver Linings Playbook' (for which Lawrence won Best Actress) and American Hustle.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper re-unite on screen with 'Serena'

Directed by Oscar-winning Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier ('In a Better World'), the film is a sweeping romance set in the wilds of Carolina's Smoky Mountains, based on the novel by Ron Rash. It's a complicated story with plenty of subtle textures that are ideally suited to Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as fine supporting players like Toby Jones, Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris. But the film's postponed release has sparked some bad buzz, as people wondered about the delay, which usually indicates some significant tinkering by the studios. And that's rarely a good thing.

Now is the time they must leave their families to tackle a 'Victor's Tour' of each district. However, the President sees her as a threat to their capitalist society and vows to have her killed, but first to make the people of every district turn against her.

Toby Jones' Children Are Not A Fan Of His Films


Toby Jones Eddie Redmayne Daniel Day Lewis

46-year-old English actor Toby Jones has appeared in film franchises like 'The Hunger Games' and 'Harry Potter', but recently revealed his daughters, Madeleine and Holly, are certainly less than impressed with his work.  

While speaking at the London Film Museum on 4th February, 2013, as part of the London Evening Standard British Film Awards, Jones said ''If you could see the indifference on my children's faces when I get something like 'Harry Potter', 'Captain America'... They just look at me with complete indifference! Hopefully in future years they'll realise.''

Skyfall Wins Big Twice At The Evening Standard Awards


Sam Mendes Daniel Craig Javier Bardem Toby Jones Andrea Riseborough Adele

Skyfall is one of the biggest films to ever come out of Britain, and James Bond is one of its most iconic characters. It's fitting, then, for it to win plenty of awards, especially given that it was largely snubbed by the Oscars. Having won both Film of the Year and Blockbuster of the Year at the Evening Standard Awards, it seems it is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

As the Guardian reports, the Evening Standard editor, Sarah Sands said: "Thanks in part to the extraordinary success of Skyfall - a truly big British movie, delivered with a panache Hollywood could envy - 2012 also highlighted the creativity, vision and talent of a new generation of British film-makers, actors and actresses." 

Taking over a billion dollars worldwide, as well as over £100m domestically, Skyfall wasn't always a sure-fire success, particularly given that the last feature Sam Mendes had directed was Away We Go (a far, far cry from the fast paced, slick style of a Bond movie). However, the combination of Mendes, a Daniel Craig Bond, a Javier Bardem baddy and its title song from woman of the moment, Adele, seems to have been the recipe for success.

London Critics Circle Film Awards Choose Unexpected Winners


Toby Jones Joaquin Phoenix Tom Holland Philip Seymour Hoffman

Due to much of its tighter focus on British and/or Irish films and their actors, the London Critics Film Awards list of winners often differs greatly from the other big awards of the season. This year, however, they have gone even farther left field, rightly awarding some of the distinctly lesser known films and actors, triumphing over those better known.

Berberian Sound Studio, which came out last August, did very well, winning the Attenborough Award for the best British Film of the Year. Written and directed by Peter Strickland this is only his second feature. Having been described as 'seriously weird and seriously good' by Peter Bradshaw, Berberian Sound Studio is a psychological thriller set in an Italian horror movie studio of the 1970s. 

It stars Toby Jones who also won the award for Best British Actor of the year.

Out Now: UK Album Releases - Berberian Sound Studios OST Marks Final Broadcast Release, Dropkick Murphys' Unusual Tattoo Promotion, Black Veil Brides 'Patently Ridiculous'


Dropkick Murphys Toby Jones Black Veil Brides

“Who on earth releases an album in the first week of January?” we hear you cry, rocking with laughter that we are even attempting this round-up this week. Well, you have a point. There aren’t that many people releasing new albums of any note. There are a few notable releases though, just don’t expect them to be epic chart-botherers. They most likely won’t be.

First up, the soundtrack to Berbarian Sound Studios, 2012’s indie horror movie that is still gaining momentum through word-of-mouth support. Starring Toby Jones and Antonio Mancino, the film tells the story of Gilderoy (Jones), a 1970s British sound technician brought to Italy to work on the sound effects for an Italian horror movie. The experience is a testing one for Gilderoy, who finds the nightmare task taking over his own psyche.

The soundtrack is recorded by Broadcast; the perfect band for such a job, as their sound has always been very much rooted in nostalgia. This soundtrack marks the final release for the band, whose member Trish Keenan died of pneumonia in January 2011. They were working on the soundtrack when Keenan passed away. In a review by The Guardian, Alexis Petridis notes “It's a very Broadcast kind of film: set in the early 70s, depicting a Dorking sound engineer's descent into madness when he stops working on natural history documentaries and starts on an Italian giallo horror film, it's packed with shots of vintage electronic and recording equipment, obsessed with the evocative, sinister effects of sound.” The soundtrack was finished by Trish’s partner and fellow Broadcast member James Cargill; a fitting tribute to her life and work, though her vocals are – for the most part – sadly absent.

Alfred Hitchock And Tippi Hedren's Torturous Relationship Unveiled In HBO's 'The Girl'


Sienna Miller Alfred Hitchcock Tippi Hedren Toby Jones Imelda Staunton Anthony Hopkins Helen Mirren

HBO’s The Girl tells the tale of Alfred Hitchcock’s relationship with the screen star Tippi Hedren - played by Sienna Miller. The story itself seems to be the real winner here; the TV movie explores the theory that Hitchcock (played by Toby Jones) “behaved like a psychotic lout” towards Tippi Hedren during the two films that they made together (The Birds and Marnie).

When Hedren spurns Hitchcock’s sexual advances, he uses his directorial power to torture her. When filming The Birds, he insists that she films take after take of the scenes in which she is attacked by birds. He does his best to break her spirit but ultimately, she remains strong and ultimately retains the upper hand.

New York Daily News have praised the feature, saying that Miller and Jones’ performances “keep the story alive and moving,” though Jones’ Hitchcock has but one dimension: “an arrogant egomaniac who was unpleasant to everyone around him.” Imelda Staunton is landed with the role of his unenviable wife, portrayed here as an “enabler” of his torrid behavior. The power of this disturbing story, according to chron.com is so fierce that you will be left feeling like you need to take a shower afterwards. According to their report though, Toby Jones’ performance is caricatured and lacking in authenticity.

Berberian Sound Studio Review


Excellent
Fiendishly clever British filmmaker Peter Strickland (see Katalin Varga) offers a treat to movie geeks with this clever behind-the-scenes blending of comedy, drama and horror. It's so finely observed that it can't help but get under our skin, letting our own imaginations do much of the heavy lifting as things get increasingly, insanely freaky.

Toby Jones finally gets the leading role he deserves as the tweedy sound designer Gilderoy, who travels to Italy in the 1970s to mix the audio track for a trashy blood-soaked giallo horror movie called The Equestrian Vortex. It's about nuns who are viciously interrogated for being witches, so Gilderoy's job entails directing actresses to scream their lungs out into microphones as assistants smash melons and cabbage heads to create the grisly sound effects.

Then as the workings of Italian society drive him around the bend, Gilderoy begins to lose his grip on reality, as if the horror movie is leaking into his private life.

Red Lights Review


Good
Spanish filmmaker Cortes clearly thinks of himself as a Christopher Nolan-style filmmaker, as this thriller has heavy echoes of Inception and especially The Prestige. But the film drifts into self-parody just when it needs to take an intelligent twist.

Tom (Murphy) is a physicist who works with psychologist Margaret (Weaver) to expose fake psychics. They don't believe that the supernatural exists, much to the annoyance of psychic studies proferssor Paul (Jones). Assisted by students Sally and Ben (Olsen and Roberts), Tom and Margaret debunk noted mentalist Palladino (Sbaraglia) by looking for "red lights", anything that seems suspicious. But when Margaret's old nemesis Simon (De Niro) makes a comeback, she backs down from going after the famed blind showman. And Tom's secret investigation takes some bizarre turns.

Continue reading: Red Lights Review

Red Lights Trailer


Two sceptics, psychologist Dr. Margaret Matheson and physicist Dr. Tom Buckley, are partners in investigating the paranormal. Having exposed a mass of so-called psychics, mediums, faith healers and ghost hunters throughout their career by discovering 'red lights' (clues to how the deceptions are engineered), Buckley wants to turn his attention to the most celebrated psychic of all time, the blind and mystifying Simon Silver, when he comes out of his 30 year retirement. Matheson is quick to dismiss Buckley's case telling him that he doesn't need to be investigated as he was already investigated prior to his retirement. However, the real reason is that she suspects he was behind the death of his most notable critic all those years ago. Buckley ignores Matheson's warnings and enlists his talented student Sally to help him with his investigations, but soon things start to take a sinister turn as Silver becomes increasingly angered at the people questioning his mysterious powers.

Snow White And The Huntsman Review


Weak
There's an oddly over-serious tone to this fairy tale, as if the filmmakers thought they were making a massive action epic on par with The Lord of the Rings. But the plot has all the complexity of, well, a bedtime story. And a little more camp attitude would have helped.

After the gorgeous Ravenna (Theron) marries and then murders a benevolent widower king, she locks his beautiful daughter Snow White (Stewart) in a tower.

All the better to continue draining the youth from the entire kingdom. But just as she prepares to take the now of-age Snow's heart, Snow escapes into the woods, and Ravenna hires huntsman Eric (Hemsworth) to find her. Of course, Eric switches sides when he finds her, joining with Snow's childhood sweetheart William (Claflin) and a gang of dwarves to end the evil queen's reign.

My Week With Marilyn Review


Very Good
Based on Colin Clark's memoirs, this film sometimes feels a bit too warm and nostalgic for its own good. But the performances are strong, and it's packed with terrific moments.

At age 23, Colin (Redmayne) is struggling to break into the movie business, camping out at the production offices of Laurence Olivier (Branagh), who is just about to start filming the 1957 comedy The Prince and the Showgirl with Marilyn Monroe (Williams). While Marilyn's diva behaviour and strict acting coach (Wanamaker) enrage Laurence, he can't deny that when she gets it right, she's magic. Meanwhile, Colin is assigned to help Marilyn make it through the shoot. And of course he can't help falling for her.

The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn Review


Good
You just knew that when Spielberg and Jackson embraced 3D performance-capture animation, the results would be seriously eye-catching. And yes, this film looks amazing. It also borrows enjoyably from Spielberg's entire back catalog.

So it's a shame the story and characters aren't stronger.

When intrepid young journalist Tintin (Bell) buys a model ship called The Unicorn, he's suddenly launched into a mystery. Pursued by the relentless treasure-hunting Sakharine (Craig) and quizzed by the blustery detectives Thompson and Thompson (Pegg and Frost), Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy try to unlock The Unicorn's secret. This involves tracking down Captain Haddock (Serkis) on the high seas, then teaming up for a breathless chase through a North African desert to a bustling market town.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Review


Excellent
It's rare to see a film in which writers, director and cast all respect the intelligence of their audience. So when it happens, it's something to savour.

Especially when it shows as much audacious skill as this British thriller does.

In the Cold War paranoia of 1973, there's a Russian mole in British intelligence. And the top boss Control (Hurt) has narrowed it down to four top colleagues (Firth, Jones, Hinds and Dencik). He asks faithful George Smiley (Oldman) to root out the spy, so he and Peter (Cumberbatch) begin a complex investigation that involves a discredited agent (Hardy) and a murdered operative (Strong). But the truth only seems to get more elusive the further they descend into the rabbit hole.

Captain America: The First Avenger Review


Excellent
Director Johnston once again channels Steven Spielberg, this time for a raucously entertaining Indiana Jones-style adventure. With the energetic punch of a vintage serial, it actually leaves us wanting more.In 1942 New York, Steve Rogers (Evans) is desperate to join the war in Europe with his buddy James (Stan), but is too weedy to fight. Then a scientist (Tucci) spots him, and soon he's partnered with gorgeous Agent Carter (Atwell) and put in a top-secret programme that amplifies his muscles and will-power.

But as "Captain America" he's just a propaganda tool until he gets a chance to prove himself on the front line as a key weapon against the deeply evil Nazi Schmidt (Weaving).Shot more like a rollicking adventure than a typical superhero movie, the script spends just about enough time on the origin story to grab our attention, including nifty effects that render Evans as a 90-pound weakling. Then the action kicks off, powering through one set piece after another. Refreshingly, it never bothers to deepen the story with random sideplots, superfluous characters or knowing winks. So it's a lot of fun to watch.

The action sequences are thrilling without being too suspenseful and, for the most part, the filmmakers keep the stunts and explosions within believable proportions. In fact, the film has a wonderfully dishevelled look, combining more rough-and-ready filmmaking touches with the slick 1940s clothes and architecture. Which almost makes it feel like one of the propaganda films it so cleverly recreates.

Your Highness Review


Weak
Pineapple Express team McBride, Franco and director Green reunite for another freewheeling comedy, but fail to recapture the deliriously silly tone. Neither a wacky spoof nor an ironic comedy, this is just pointlessly goofy.

Thadeous (McBride) is the second son of the King (Dance), living in the shadow of his golden boy big brother Fabious (Franco), who has just returned from a quest with a bride, Belladonna (Deschanel). But on their wedding day, the evil wizard Leezar (Theroux) kidnaps her to complete his nefarious world-conquering plan. So Fabius and his loyal knights, along with Thadeuos and his esquire (Hardiker), set off to rescue her.

Nightwatching Review


Very Good
As visually fascinating as anything Greenaway has done, this film's narrative is so convoluted that it's virtually impossible to follow unless you know the life story of Rembrandt. And even then it's a challenge.

When he's commissioned to paint a local militia group in 1642 Amsterdam, Rembrandt (Freeman) has premonitions of trouble, but goes ahead and creates a fiercely untraditional painting that reveals rather too many secrets about the musketeers depicted in it. While painting it, his sparky wife (Birthistle) gives birth to his son, but becomes seriously ill in the process, eventually causing him to turn to the family nurses (Holmes and May) for company. And when complete, the portrait, The Night Watch, has drastic repercussions on his career.

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll Review


Good
Anchored by a ripping central performance from Serkis, this biopic about notorious musician Ian Dury is too stylish for its own good. Director Whitecross shows ambition and audacity, but his riotous visual style is distracting.

Disabled by polio at age 10, Ian Dury (Serkis) grew up with a fierce determination to be himself, and against the odds became an iconic leader of Britain's punk scene in the 1970s. But his unruly lifestyle takes a toll on his personal relationships, and he barely knows his son Baxter (Milner) from his first wife Betty (Williams). So Baxter comes to stay with him and his current girlfriend Denise (Harris), and both father and son need to figure out how to relate to each other. And to realise how much they need each other.
