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.

Just when the world was feeling a tiny bit of mild non-excitement, Bryan Singer’s stepped off Fox's X-Men: First Class. The prequel to Singer's previous efforts, First Class focuses on a young Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr, alongside kiddies like Jean Grey and Scott Summers.

Now, however, the man who abandoned the world to Brett Ratner's X-Men 3 has backed away from the helm thanks to Warner Bros' Jack the Giant Killer. But before you stone Singer (who did give us The Usual Suspects and a rather excellent Superman update), take comfort in this: he will be overseeing the project.

Adopting a Christopher Nolan/Peter Jackson-like role, Singer will steer the filming of his chosen script from Jamie Moss. All he needs is someone to steer. And Fox are hard at work on that. It may not be the most thrilling of ideas - Scott Summers is probably even more of a dick when he's 12 - but at least someone with some sense will be watching over the whole thing.
