A bunch of US Navy SEALs get into some serious trouble from their boss (JK Simmons) after an operation in Sarajevo in 1995 during the Bosnian War goes badly wrong. But it's nothing to the kind of trouble they can expect if they get caught during a renegade operation they are planning to unearth Nazi gold stolen from the French fifty years ago from a Bosnian lake. Back in World War II, a Bosnian village was flooded when the nearby dam was bombed, taking the group of Nazis and their gold with it. Now these five guys want a share in the equity and decide to take the plunge to find the gold bars, while trying to avoid being spotted by enemy soldiers on the land. There's more than just $300 million dollars worth of treasure at stake here; they'll be lucky to escape with their lives.

Like Game of Thrones crossed with Braveheart but stripped of most of the budget, this scrappy film tells an intriguing story without the usual Hollywood bombast. And while the low-fi production makes it sometimes feel rather corny, this ancient yarn holds our interest due to a strong focus on the characters and a gritty use of spectacular locations.
It's set in AD 871 Britain, after the Viking King Bagsecg (Cosmo) is fatally injured just as he's preparing to take on the Saxon horde. As he lays dying, he gives his third son Steinar (Bewley) the important task of locating eldest son Hakan (Cowan), who has gone native and is living with the Picts. Second son Harald (Robertson) prefers to leave Hakan as lost, but agrees to hold the fort while Steiner sets off with younger half-brother Vali (Barklen-Biggs) and his loyal soldier pals (Standen, Flanagan and Jibson). But after crossing the countryside and fighting off Saxon warriors, they make a startling discovery that changes the way Steinar sees his past and his destiny.
Steinar's odyssey unfolds in a series of encounters and battles along the road, as they meet colourful people and take on various handfuls of black-clad Saxons. Clearly the filmmakers didn't have the funds for more than a few extras, so the skirmishes are all fairly small-scale, but they're pretty fierce and they reveal some fascinating details in the clash between the Viking gods and the Britons' Christianity. Steinar, meanwhile, has rejected religion and superstition, which puts him at odds with everyone and makes his soul-searching much more involving. Bewley plays this very nicely, even if Steinar's arc isn't hugely surprising.

Not long since the harrowing and almost fatal birth of their daughter Renesmee, newly born vampire Bella Cullen nee Swan and her new husband Edward have even more deadly drama to contend with. With prestigious Italian vampire coven the Volturi led by Vampire Irina accusing the rapidly growing Renesmee of being a demon child, Bella and Edward have no time to enjoy married life and bring her up together like regular parents. When their homelife is threatened by those who wish only to protect themselves, they realise that they must band together a formidable army to fight the Volturi down in a battle if they wish to save the life of their mortal child.
This much-adored vampire love story finally comes to a close in one of the most dramatic conclusions of fantasy fiction ever written. Based on the best-selling novels by Stephenie Meyer, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2' has been directed by 'Part 1's director Bill Condon ('Dreamgirls', 'Gods and Monsters') with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who has written all of the other screenplays for the blockbuster series) working alongside him. This final instalment is set to become a major box office hit with its release on November 16th 2012.

After their reckless marriage ceremony and the traumatic near-death-experience that was the birth of their daughter Renesmee in 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1', newly turned vampire Bella Swan and Edward Cullen think they have overcome the worst. However, 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' forces them to face a vicious battle with the Volturi after they hear a false claim the rapidly growing Renesmee is an immortal child; the conception of which is outlawed due to fact that immortal children can become out of control and dangerous. Bella and Edward must protect their daughter and themselves from assassination from the Volturi and find a way to prove that Renesmee is not in fact immortal.
Bella Swan is finally a vampire. She discovers that the world seems somewhat brighter now and learns about the heightened senses that vampires have. Her body temperature now matches Edward's, so she no longer finds him cold to the touch. She takes quickly to vampire life - very quickly, to the surprise of the Cullens, who were anticipating that it would take decades - even centuries - for Bella to adjust.
Furniture designer Jacob (Yelchin) meets aspiring writer Anna (Jones) at university in Los Angeles, and their adorable romance develops over their final year studying before Anna has to return to Britain for a wedding.
