Raindance 2013 line-up announced

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.

After all the will-they won't-they drama of MGM's financial screw-up, it's hard to muster the effort to write anything more about The (seemingly cursed) Hobbit. First, the money went missing. Then the unions started walking. Then stuff burnt down. But now the LA Times and New York Times are both reporting that a green light is on the way.

Warner Bros (who own New Line Cinema) will be relieved to finally give the official OK to the troubled production - presumably with Peter Jackson properly at the helm. It's not confirmed or announced for sure, but anonymous sources have indicated that MGM may give the nod "in the next few days". Although that would involve raising part of the supposed $500 million budget.

Shooting looks to be scheduled for January, by when they "expect to have all issues settled... so that the first of the two movies would be ready for a holiday 2012 release."

Oh, and The Hobbit will also be in 3D.
