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

Review: About Time

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.

DC have hit back at Marvel at Comic-Con with the release of the second trailer for upcoming movie Red. The first trailer gave us a lot of Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren as ex-CIA agents, with a little splash of young enemy Karl Urban for good measure. With the second, we get a lot more of John Malkovich.

Willis, Mirren, Malkovich and Morgan Freeman are all old now. Past it. But soon they get labelled as Retired and Extremely Dangeous, so the old team get back together to stop the secret service's whippersnappers from wiping them out.

Expanded from a solo piece into an ensemble from Warren Ellis' graphic novel, it's a pretty simple and obvious idea - old people kick ass - but when your old people are "the queen and God" (as Mirren put it during the Comic-Con panel) you can't really argue. With stuff blowing up, Mirren shooting people, and Malkovich doing the crazies, Red is shaping up to be quite a lot of fun. Not least because it allows Karl Urban to get his geek on. Again. What with Star Trek, Priest, Judge Dredd and this, that guy is now a legend for all sci-fi comic book fans.

The trailer's online over at Apple.
