The latest Star Trek: Picard featurette from CBS All Access revealed what makes Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) quit Starfleet. Focusing on a scene in the premiere episode "Remembrance", Picard reluctantly responds to the end of his professional career – putting blame on the Federation for abandoning their humanitarian duties and responsibilities. The Federation allowed the […]
Before we go any further, it's time for you to open up, come clean, and admit what you were thinking the moment you saw the first teaser for Amazon Prime Video's series adaptation of Joe Wright's 2011 Saoirse Ronan-starrer film Hanna – and be honest! "It would be kinda' cool if the series was about a 'ruthless […]
And by "too many" we mean "nine." There is a lot to be said about the modern marketing of movies with the ten million different trailers and TV spots that showcase the entire production. Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword has decided that cutting together TV spots and trailers is too much work […]
Though it's still eight months away, we are getting a first look at Guy Ritchie's upcoming film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. The film stars Charlie Hunnam as Arthur Pendragon, Eric Bana as his father Uther and Jude Law in the role of Vortigern, the bad guy who kills both Arthur's father and brother. […]
Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana become national sensations in the trailer for Netflix's upcoming Special Correspondents. Bana plays a radio newsman supposedly covering a conflict in Ecuador. Gervais plays his audio tech. Both are hiding somewhere in New York and faking reports from the scene. But when they are presumed missing, they must make their […]
Disney has released the first trailer for their new film The Finest Hours starring Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana. The story tells of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. On February 18, 1952, a massive nor'easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the […]
With the latest version of the Hulk in theaters this weekend in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the Cinema Sins crew have put together an Everything Wrong With... video for the 2003 Ang Lee Hulk film and the Ed Norton Incredible Hulk by Marvel. Folks keep talking about a new standalone Hulk film, but this reminds […]
It would seem that this "inspired by true events" horror tale is being sold somewhat differently on the opposite sides of the atlantic.
It’s all make believe, of some degree of self awareness or another, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be creepy.
The new surveillance-and-terrorism legal thriller Closed Circuit isn't really a thriller at all, but a drama. I spoke to its superb director, John Crowley.
There's a lot of talent behind this film, from Boy A and Is There Anybody There? director John Crowley to Eastern Promises screenwriter Steven Knight.
Director John Crowley might be the best kept secret in British cinema right now – and what's more, actors should love him. His last film, Is There Anybody There? was a brilliantly well-crafted drama giving Michael Caine one of the best roles of his whole career; his incredibly compelling TV movie Boy A gave Andrew […]
Despite Joe Wright's Hanna having been released a few weeks back in the US, I'm still under embargo and can't tell you if I liked it, or if I thought it was an outrageous calamity. But here are some pictures by Jock, renowned Judge Dredd and The Losers artist and regular concept artist for the movies […]
The UK trailer for Joe Wright's Hanna is here. It's similar to a Spanish one doing the rounds – except it doesn't have the subtítulos en español. Who knew Saoirse Ronan could be so scary? The trailer premiered at MSN. You can see the old, US trailer elsewhere at Bleeding Cool. I've never liked a […]
Judging from the captions at the beginning, they want you to see some kind of fairy tale undertones in this trailer. Good luck with that. There's lots of accent work and some very stylised shots, so I can see this going down well in certain quarters, but I'm yet to see a Joe Wright film […]
