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.

Matthew Vaughn has found himself another X-Man for Fox's upcoming prequel First Class: Nicholas Hoult, who will play Beast. Benjamin Walker (from Flags of Our Fathers) was originally lined up for the part of Hank McCoy/Beast, but after a massive bout of indecision, he dropped out. 

Hoult, of About a Boy fame, outgrew his baby face last year, storming to full-on sex-bomb status in Tom Ford's A Single Man. Further manly grown-up action came when a 2-D Hoult turned up in Clash of the Titans, proving his macho mettle when it comes to running about in skimpy clothes - he's definitely a perfect fit for the intelligent mutant.

He joins Vaugn's other stars, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, alongside other youthful mutants Banshee (No Country for Old Men's Caleb Landry Jones) and Emma Frost (Alice Eve).

The other rumour going round thanks to AICN is that Vaughn has also secured a reunion with Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson. If it's true, he'll be playing Scott Summers/Cyclops - a nice match of talent, and clearly a better choice for Johnson compared to that Spider-Man film that Sony keep going on about. As it stands, X-Men: First Class is far more exciting.
