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

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.

Tom Felton - 9.5% carbon, 60% evil wizard, 30% monkey and 2.5% bad maths. An actor with that kind of chemical make-up is wasted on playing Draco Malfoy his whole life. Which is why Tom Felton has signed up to be Fox's monkey boy. Yes, Felton has officially joined Rise of the Apes.

The Planet of the Apes prequel already has its fair share of casting goodness, from Andy Serkis (as mo-cap monkey Caesar) to James Franco and Freida Pinto. Felton joins the cast as son of Brian Cox's nasty scientist, so expect him to either be mean to the monkeys, or conflicted over his father's ape-abusing ways. Hopefully it'll be the former.

Rupert Wyatt's film, which sees Caesar lead a primate revolution against the humans, will lead back to the beginning of the Planet of the Apes franchise. It'll be shooting within the next few weeks.
