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

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.

This year's London Film Festival is set for a fantastic opening this year - none other than Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr Fox will kick off the festivities on Wednesday 14th October. The world premiere of the stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl classic is already generating enough excitement thanks to its wonderful cast, including George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray. Oh, and Owen Wilson, Michael Gambon Helen McCrory and Willem Dafoe.

The film was shot at London’s Three Mills Studios, with Fox releasing the film in the UK on Friday 23rd October - two weeks before the US, naturally. Sandra Hebron, the Festival’s Artistic Director comments: “Wes Anderson’s boundless invention and meticulous film making craft find perfect expression in this imaginative and hugely enjoyable version of a much loved story." Anderson adds: “It's a British film, based on a Roald Dahl book, set in the UK, produced in the UK, so I am especially pleased to have been invited to be the opening night movie of this year’s London Film Festival."

Oh, and did I mention that they've now released new images, too? You may have spotted one above. Of course, they all look fantastic.
