The Social Network

A convincing case for a 21st Century Charles Foster Kane, The Social Network is a courtroom drama of petty politics and understated genius.

Despicable Me

Likeable fun with a lazy conclusion, Despicable Me shoots for the moon, steals it, then lets it go again. Above average, but below Pixar.

Brief Encounters: The Social Network

The cast and Aaron Sorkin chat about Facebook, Faust and summing up a generation.

A Town Called Panic

A blissful parade of pure nonsense, A Town Called Panic is original, funny and most importantly, very, very silly.

The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud

A slushy piece of drivel that should drop the third and fourth word of its title.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Money Never Sleeps isn't the wake up call it wants to be, but it's a safe bet more than a bail-out.

Made in Dagenham

An amiable piece of British film-making. Mostly thanks to Sally Hawkins. How does she do it? She's a woman. Now don't ask such stupid questions.


Ryan Reynolds trapped in a coffin. What's not to like? Buried is high-concept, low-budget, top-notch.

The Town

Affleck has turned out an accomplished and riveting crime thriller. The Town isn't as hot as Heat, but it's one hell of a scorcher.

Surprise, Surprise?

What's on Sandra Hebron's LFF shortlist? Here's our guess. Hint: not Michael Moore.

The Hole 3D

A proper horror for kids big and small, The Hole is a great relief after The Human Centipede. Friendly fun to freak out the hole (ahem) family.

The Other Guys

There are flashes of brilliance in this frantic Ferrell vehicle. The Other Guys never shoots to kill, but it frequently finds your funny bone.

Danny Boyle Wants to Direct 28 Days Later Sequel? Print E-mail

Danny Boyle is interested in directing the next film in the 28 Days Later series. Presumably called 28 Months Later.

The 127 Hours director told "a friend" of Dread Central that he was keen to return to the franchise as more than a producer - or so the site claim. Now Danny Boyle is definitely not one to spout rubbish without reason; he's an approachable guy with a certain down to earth honesty.

On the other hand, there's been no word of a 28 Weeks Later follow-up since, well, the film's release in 2007. WorstPreviews even got a negative nod from screenwriter Alex Garland (thanks to FirstShowing), who confirmed that, after a rights disagreement, "the film is never going to happen unless those people start talking to each other again. There is no script as far as I'm aware."

The other question, of course, is whether there's any need for a sequel at all. Expect more news on all of that when everyone shouts at Danny Boyle about it during the London Film Festival's press conference for 127 Hours.
