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.

By the power of greyskull, say it ain't so. Yes, Sony have swooped in on the leftovers from Mattel and Warner Bros. and are looking to do He-Man. From scratch. There are no writers, plot, or talent talked of yet, although Skeletor will no doubt fit in there somewhere. Sony's producers will apparently be Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch - people who brought us such wonderful classics as Knowing and The Taking of Pelham 123. You can decide if that's a good thing (although I do still quite like Knowing).

Meanwhile, Mattel's other intellectual property is getting underway. Yes, Barbie's shaping up over at Universal for her own feature film (live-action, not animation). She may not have the following that she used to, but kids everywhere know who Barbie is. Forget Toy Story, though, and Aqua; this will probably be a serious, straight take on the girly toy. Life is plastic - it's fantastic. Mattel must be laughing their heads off.
