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

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.

Columbus to Captain Nolan's Superman? Print E-mail

Warner Bros. is still pumping away at that Superman franchise, desperate to relaunch the Man of Steel into cinemas. The latest man to join that scheme? Well, it might be Chris Columbus.

The word on the web is that Columbus is Warner's favourite choice to direct the project, no doubt thanks to the box office clout currently swung about by Harry Potter. But would Christopher Nolan - supposedly the godfather of the scheme - really allow such a thing to happen?

Nolan's fellow geek David Goyer is also putting himself forward as the man to make the movie. And while he gave the world The Unborn and Blade Trinity, he's also responsible for the new-look Batman, the original Blade, and Dark City, not to mention the now-cancelled FlashForward.

Put that up against the man who directed I Love You, Beth Cooper and Bicentennial Man and it's obvious who wins. Chris Columbus all the way! Right...?
