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.

"Joey have you ever been in... a Turkish prison?"

Peter Graves has passed away, aged 83. The actor, star of Mission: Impossible and Airplane!, died from a heart attack four days before his 84th birthday.

His career started out in the Air Force before Graves turned his attention to acting. He worked for many years in a range of TV programmes and movies before reaching widespread popularity as Jim Phelps in the cult classic show Mission: Impossible.

Playing the IMF boss for 6 years, Graves later returned in the 1988 remake of the series. His other famous role came in the form of Airplane's Captain Clarence Oveur, a part which he jumped at when he learned that Leslie Nielsen would be his co-star.

Refusing to sign on for Brian De Palma's 1996 Mission: Impossible movie, Graves continued to turn in guest performances for shows like House and American Dad. As prolific as he was talented, Graves is an actor whose work - whether serious or comical - will live on in the memories of spies and airline pilots alike. He is survived by his wife Joan and their three children.
