Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

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

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

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.

The production company who brought us Astro Boy, Imagi Animation Studios, has closed following the company's overall loss of $93.4m. The studio has been CG-ing up our screens since 2000, including that classic shiny kids animation TMNT.

But while that did rather well at the box office, Astro Boy flopped a fair bit in the States. So the company has shut shop - although it will continue to outsource work overseas - putting a question mark on their ongoing projects, Cat Tale and anime Gathchaman.

Which just goes to prove that a costly A-List voice cast (including Nicolas Cage) doesn't guarantee financial success. Neither does having machine guns up your arse. Shame, really.
