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.

Thanks to Disney, McG's current project has gone the way of its title. His adaptation of Jules Vernes' novel has sunk way past the 20k mark, leaving the helmer without a helm to steer. With no names attached to the role of Captain Nemo, tarted up for family audiences by Bill Marsilli, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea was always on slippery ground, but was still set for a February shoot.

Now, with Dick Cook gone, the project's been anchored firmly to the sea bed, leaving Disney to focus on tentpole blockbusters like Tron Legacy to line their pockets. Oh, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, of course. But what of McG? Well, he's always got Terminator 5 - if anyone ever buys the rights for that franchise - and a future feature over at Warner Bros, Dead Spy Running. For now, though, the House of Mouse have truly run McG aground. And from there, it's only a few stages till he reaches "washed up" status. Nice one, Disney.
