But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

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.

Danny Boyle's 127 Hours will close the London Film Festival on Thursday 13th October.

The true-life tale of mountaineer Aron Ralston, who ends up stuck to a wall with his arm trapped under a rock, has been selected for the Closing Gala of the LFF, now in its 54th year.

An experienced climber, Ralston (played by James Franco) leaves video messages every day as he's trapped there with no hope of rescue. Eventually, he ends up taking the only course of action open to him: hacking his arm off.

Boyle commented: "The LFF played a vital role in the journey of Slumdog Millionaire and it's great to be bringing new work here and renewing a happy partnership. I can't wait to unveil the new film and I hope it provides a worthy climax to what will hopefully be two weeks of great movies for our city."

The Festival kicks off two weeks earlier with Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go. The full line-up will be announced on Wednesday 8th September. Check back then for the latest LFF updates - we'll make sure we sneak you into all the snazziest events.
