Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Friday 6th May 2011 meant Spider-Man 4 to many fans and investors. But with production officially delayed, Paramount and Marvel have taken the chance to push their Thor release date forward to then, taking the day once owned by Spidey. Although Sony haven't officially put back the release date, other studios are jumping all over the chance to get ahead in the summer stakes.

With Thor's previous date now empty, Disney have parked Pirates 4 into the gap on Friday 20th May. Summer 2011 then continues with The Hangover 2 (28th May), Green Lantern (17th June) and Transformers, Potter and Captain America all turning up July. So if Spider-Man does continue as planned, it'll be a squeeze for Sony to fit it in. Paramount have said they'll give the date back if it does happen, so one of them will have to find a new spot somewhere.

Amidst all the rescheduling for next year's sequel-fest, it's clear that there's a very important lesson to take away from all this: next time Sam Raimi wants John Malkovich in his film - a flying John Malkovich, nonetheless - don't disagree with him. Just give him the damn money.
