Zoolander 2

Really, really, ridiculously disappointing.

The Assassin

There are martial arts movies and there are martial arts movies. The Assassin isn't either.

Batman v Superman

A bold, mature exploration of myths and epics - followed by a two-hour mess.

"I've got a little bit of rum in me now... Sailor Jerry. It's a spiced rum."

And I thought Bill Murray couldn't get any more awesome after seeing his Cannes patchwork suit. Well, it turns out he can with this drunken tour of the Moonrise Kingdom set. He should give guided tours of all movie sets.

The wonderful thing is that him drunk in this video is almost exactly the same as him acting in the film. You can't tell the difference. Amazing. And good news for fans of his Cannes festival fashion: he even explains how his patchwork suit was made. 



Moonrise Kingdom is out in UK cinemas on Friday and it's absolutely lovely. Head this way to read a Moonrise Kingdom film review


Moonrise Kingdom review
Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Jared Gilman, Kara Hayward, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton
Certificate: 12A

"Dear Sam. Where?" "Dear Suzy. When?"

That's how Sam and Suzy arrange to run away together. By hand-written letters from opposite sides of a remote island.

He, a bullied Khaki Scout who sets fires to things while sleepwalking; she, a troubled child with violent tendencies and a lot of eyeshadow. Alienated by uncomprehending families and friends, they plan to survive on their own in the woods.

Fortunately, they’re well equipped. Sam has his Scout skills. Suzy has binoculars. Plus they have a torch, a toothbrush, a Davey Crocket hat, a frying pan, an air gun, a suitcase full of books - and Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.

Cannes 2012 Diary

It's that time of year again. The time when folks in the UK who can't afford to go to France for two weeks suffer Cannes Envy.

Not me. I'm happy here being stuck in England in an East London office with sporadic sunshine, a croissant and a mug with cats on it. (Seriously, it's an awesome mug.)

But every now and then, bits of Cannes gossip gets across the Channel that even us mugged-up croissant chompers need to hear about. So here, to provide you with unrivalled, in-depth coverage of the film industry's biggest festival from someone who isn't even in the same country, is my 2012 Cannes Diary.


Day 1

Not in Cannes.

UK Trailer: Moonrise Kingdom

Director: Wes Anderson
Cast: Bruce Willis, Ed Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman
Certificate: 12A
UK release date: Friday 25th May

Moonrise Kingdom is the new movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Rushmore).

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore - and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way.

Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban; and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl.

With Aardman's The Pirates! setting sail on the stop-motion seas this week (here's our review), all the cool kids want to cover themselves in plasticine and hop on a boat.

But what do you do once you're smeared in silly putty and stranded at sea? If only there were some kind of guidelines, or code, for pirate etiquette.

Well, now there is. Here's our movie guide to being a pirate:

Moonrise Kingdom trailer - Wes Anderson 

The Moonrise Kingdom trailer is mighty cute. But, of course, that's what you'd expect from Wes Anderson.

His blend of whimsy, wit and Bill Murray applies itself to what looks like an adorable tale of pubescent romance. Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward are Sam and Suzy, two kids who fall in love and head off for an adventure. Only for mummy Frances MacDormand and daddy Bill Murray to go into panic mode and call up the local cop - played by Bruce Willis.

Yes, a sentence that I never thought I'd say: Bruce Willis is in a Wes Anderson film. You'll also find Tilda Swinton and Ed Norton hopping on board. But before you think that's awesome, get a load of Jason Schwartzman.


Moonrise Kingdom is out in America in May - hopefully the UK will have it by the end of the year. Until then, read on for the trailer.

The Awakening blew its chilling blend of Jonathan Creek and pure abject terror into UK cinemas last week. It's an intelligent film, rooted in post-World War loss, with a lead character worthy of her own TV series.

Meet Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall), a smart, sceptical and sophisticated paranormal investigator in the 1920s. Busting spirits long before Bill Murray or Scooby Doo came along, Cathcart's old-school methods are a lesson in how to debunk supernatural suspicions using just a handful of shiny steampunk gadgets and some above-average brain cells.

So it's only natural that Nick Murphy's horror (co-starring Dominic West) forms the basis of this handy guide to investigating haunted houses. 

If there's something strange in your neighbourhood... sort it yourself. Here's how to be a ghost-buster:


How to be a ghost-buster, The Awakening


For more infographicky goodness, take a look at some of our other How To guides, including the indispensible Jurassic Park Survival GuideHow to Stop the End of the WorldHow to Break Out of Prison - and a diagram of Christian Bale Punching People.


Alternatively, head this way to read our review of The Awakening - and then go and see it in your nearest cinema.




Fox McCloud has spent years defending the Lylat system, but there's one enemy he's never been able to defeat... himself. 

So this is pretty much the greatest thing that has ever been done involving space, Wes Anderson and stop-motion furry puppets - unless Wes Anderson were to actually make this film. Particular highlights include the banjo and Owen Wilson's Falcon saying "Einstein".



Fact of the day: you can't barrel roll away from who you are.

Sadly not this Ivan. But Ivan Reitman will. That is, presuming Ghostbusters 3 does ahead. Reitman told MTV that, if the sequel is officially greenlit, then he will step up to the helm.

He also added that the script's first draft, from Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (of the US Office), is finished: "there are some very cool things in it". As of Sigourney Weaver's recent remarks, he did not confirm or deny them - Bill Murray's Peter Venkman may still yet be a ghost. For better or worse.

Either way, Ivan's hoping to shoot by the end of the year. Which is good news - I think. With shiny new CGI and ageing actors, this may end up less phantastic and more a pile of gooey crap. I ain't afraid of no ghosts. But I am a teensy bit scared of Ghostbusters 3.


Your best mate, the guy down the pub, even your bin man - everyone seems to know something about Ghostbusters 3. But holster your Proton Packs, because here to bust those rumours for good is Sigourney Weaver herself. Chatting to Channel 4 News about Avatar (don't act like you haven't heard about it), she let slip a few details about the much-mooted sequel.

"I’m afraid to say it: Ghostbusters 3 is happening. I hope people are excited about that. I don’t know if I’m going to be in it, I have had a couple of calls asking "would you read the script?" But what is in this script she speaks of? "I know that my little son Oscar – who was kidnapped from me – I think he has grown up to be a ghostbuster... I see nothing wrong with being in it, although I don’t think I will have a big part. I think Bill Murray has a little more to do with it - he’s a ghost."

Does that mean Peter Venkman will be the new Slimer? Keep watching the walls, folks - we'll start stalking Murray now and let you know. Unless we get arrested first.
