Rooted in folk horror traditions, Wake Wood is ex-tree-mely good stuff. Stump up the cash to see it now.

Chalet Girl

With sassy performances and solid on-slope action, Chalet Girl is gnarly stuff. Brrridget Jones? Brrrilliant.


Quality naval gazing cinema.

Match Point: Woody Allen and Arsenal

The only thing worse than being an Arsenal fan is a being a Woody Allen fan.

Hall Pass

There is one joke that will make you smile. It occurs during the end credits.


This fantastic existential Western is a veritable Sergio Chameleone.

Age of the Dragons

Who knew dragons could be rubbish? This should be B-Movie gold. It's A-grade bollocks.

Cinema's Best Submarines

Richard Ayoade's coming-of-age tale takes its place alongside cinema's great submarines. Here are five of them...


I love Liam Neeson killing people almost as much as he does.


Blood, guts and James Purefoy's sword - this is The Two Towers on a budget. Helm's Cheap? Hell yes.

The new poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 has turned up online on the official Facebook page - and you can tell Warner Bros mean business.

Building up for the final showdown between The Boy Who Lived and He Who Shall Not Be Named, it's The Fight What People Have Waited For. Which explains why the Potter studio have tried to echo the poster for the greatest battle in cinema's history.




In a bold move, there's not even a title on the blood-splattered poster, so it could well be the start of a campaign for Bride Wars 2: Electric Boogaloo. Oh yes, I'm excited.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will bring about total world destruction on Friday 15th July - not at 7:15pm, as previously advertised.



"These are dark times there is no denying..."

And no-one's about to. Not when Bill Nighy declares it to be the case. And he's not lying either. Dark's a good word for this new trailer. Or epic. Or amazing. Or something else really, really good.

Yes, the new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One is online (after yesterday's batch of stills) and boy, is it impressive. Keeping with the spectacular scale and ridiculously over-the-top special effects, the first half of David Yates' conclusion couldn't look like a better climax for JK Rowling's series. It has Harry doing his Binary Sun pose, Ron getting all bearded and angry, and Snape saying "We have taken over the Ministry" in a wonderfully sinister voice.

There's also a shot of Dobby, some swoops over patches of countryside, and a nice spotlight on Hagrid, whose flying motorbike returns for the opening set piece - an escape from the Death Eaters, which will certainly include the novel's use of multiple Harrys as a decoy. Either that or Danny Radcliffe just really enjoys dressing up.

Dragons, lightning, snakes, wands. Screw all this typing. Read on to watch the new trailer at least four times. Then start counting down to Friday 19th November. That's when Deathly Hallows Part One hits UK cinemas. Just in case you'd forgotten or something.

Just when you thought your muggle life couldn't any more exciting, up pop a veritable flood of new photos from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In honour of the new trailer, which is arriving online imminently, Warner Bros have magicked up a load of stills from the video to get your wands sparking.

Following the last run of images, which showed us not just Rhys Ifans but also a motorbike-plus-sidecar, this batch includes a gravestone, a Dobby and a gigantic Ministry of Magic statue bearing the motto "Magic is Might" (that one comes with a free Dolores Umbridge). You even get ickle Danny Radcliffe having his own Binary Sun moment too.

Fans of Professor Snape (aren't we all?) will also be content with a shot of him wearing black, sitting on a black chair, around a black table, surrounded by Death Eaters (in black) and talking to Voldemort, who's wearing orange. Oh wait, no, it's black.

With only 58 days to go until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One is released, there's a new giveaway of premiere tickets going on too. If you recall, the official Harry Potter Facebook Page has some poor person standing in the corner, counting the days down from 100 and handing out 100 tickets to match. 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One swoops into cinemas on Friday 19th November. The trailer's over here, but what you really want is the brand new stills. All 20 of them. Yes, there are 20. You didn't expecto patronum that, did you?

How can you improve an ensemble that includes Gary Oldman, Colin Firth and Tom Hardy? Add in Mark Strong, of course. That's what Tomas Alfredson seems to think best as Strong has recently appeared in the official line-up for Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy (thanks, once again, to The Daily Mail).

The Let the Right One In director has surrounded himself with a wealth of incredible talent for his first English language film, a take on John Le Carre's classic spy thriller. Starring Gary Oldman as George Smiley (the role made famous by Alec Guinness), it sees the SIS scoured for a Russian mole during the Cold War.

Scripted by Peter Straughan and Bridget O'Connor (seemingly from Peter Morgan's initial adaptation), the adaptation also boasts Benedict Cumberbatch in its cast (plus Svetlana Khodchenhova), but seems to have dropped Raiph Fiennes and David Thewlis, both of whom were initially set to star. Not that I'm complaining - this is shaping up to be a solid bit of cinema.

Even Colin Firth thinks so. Speaking to the Mail (and picked up by The Playlist), he commented: "What I love about le Carre is that it's more about human motivation than whodunit. The reason why somebody betrays their country is personal and passionate..."

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy begins shooting within the next couple of weeks.
