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.

"I am being cast in The Hobbit. We're currently in negotiations - there are two of us under consideration. It's not the Bilbo role, but could be bigger."

That was Sylvester McCoy speaking at Cowal Games in his hometown of Dunoon.

Rumours have been rife around the internet that the former Dr Who was in the running for Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming adaptation of The Hobbit. Sadly those aren't true, but the actor has confirmed that he's almost made it into the ensemble.

Who could he be playing? Well, TheOneRing.net has suggested he's possibly up for Radagast the Brown. One of Gandalf's wizarding folks, the role has supposedly been embiggened from the book to create a more substantial character.

That said, there's still no film for McCoy to appear in - Warner Bros. and Peter Jackson are gradually sorting out MGM's financial mess before a director or production date gets locked in. Until then, fans can get more exciting Cowal Games news from the Dunoon Observer's next edition. They have a special pullout and everything.
