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.

Pegg and Serkis were always a promising line-up for Burke and Hare, the body-snatching/corpse-selling duo of the 1820s. And now that promise has been firmly delivered upon with the film's first trailer.

Burke (Simon Pegg) and Hare (Andy Serkis) went from Northern Ireland to Scotland in the 1800s, promptly setting themselves up a business of selling off cadavers to Edinburgh's brightest medical institutions. But when grave-robbing ran dry, they had to turn to other, more murderous means of supply. Like murder.

Packed with talent as varied as Jessica Hynes, Isla Fisher, Tim Curry, Christopher Lee, Stephen Merchant, Jenny Agutter, Bill Bailey and Ronnie Corbett, Burke and Hare is shaping up to be a blood-soaked fest of daft humour and over-the-top gore. Which is exactly what you'd expect from director John Landis.

Burke and Hare is out in UK cinemas on Friday 29th October. Read on for the full trailer.
