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.

Following Simon Pegg's Twitter announcement yesterday, the cast for John Landis' Burke and Hare has now been officially confirmed. The tweet's deleted now, but it told the world who David Tennant's replacement would be after he dropped out of the film: "A legend of Middle Earth and Skull Island". But that was too obvious for us - Andy Serkis - and for the studio too. So they did a China and wiped it.

Now, though, they've confirmed (thanks to The Hollywood Reporter) that not only has Andy Serkis joined the team, but Tom Wilkinson and Isla Fisher have too. Pegg and Serkis are Burke and Hare, 19th Century grave-robbers who sell corpses to science, with Fisher playing Burke's girlfriend. Wilkinson will be the flesh-hungry scientist, Dr Robert Knox.

Back after a 10 year break, John Landis steps behind the camera in February. The rest of us, meanwhile, get rather excited...
