Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due – The Ant-Man Screenplay

It was a big story when Edgar Wright left Ant-Man. Everyone assumed it would doom the movie. But Marvel shifted gears, brought in Peyton Reed and Adam McKay to work with Paul Rudd and the cast on the film. Now we’re seeing a very promising looking trailer and are under three months away from the […]







Joe Cornish Latest Rumored Frontrunner For Star Trek 3 Director Job

As JJ Abrams deals with all sorts of drama over at his new gig, the franchise he left behind is still playing musical chairs trying to lock down a director for Star Trek 3. From John M. Chu to Rupert Wyatt, and now… Joe Cornish. Deadline reports Paramount is “sweet on” the British writer/director to […]




Joe Cornish To Direct Film Of Royden Lepp’s Rust

Well, how’s about this then. This time last year, two of the most memorable moments of Comic-Con for me were meeting Royden Lepp and speaking to him about his comic, Rust; and being addressed personally in a Hall H panel for Attack the Block by Joe Cornish, which led to a few days of folk […]

Nathan Fillion Guest Stars In The Superheroes, A Web Video From Sam And Tim Daly

The starting point for this mini-sitcom episode is that Nathan Fillion and Tim Daly have both provided voices for animated DC superheroes. The ending point is… best discovered for yourself.

101 Films From 2011 That You Really Shouldn’t Have Missed

I think 2011 has turned out to be a vintage year with well on the way to 200 hundred new releases that I thought were easily worth the time and money that I spent on them. I’ve whittled that list down to the 101 films I think movie buffs should catch up with, for one […]

America! Watch The Best Film Of The Year (So Far) For Just $0.99

Right now, Amazon in the US are offering online rentals of Attack the Block for just $0.99. Clearly, that’s an offer too good to pass up. I think it’s the best film I’ve seen this year – so far at least – but lots of other people have shared their enthusiasm for the film too: […]

Prisoners Of The Sun Not Tintin 2 But Probably Tintin 3

I didn’t much like The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, and neither did my guests to the screening. We all found different plot holes, were all put off by different aesthetics and all had some issue or another with the action sequences.  In short: there’s plenty in this film to put off […]

Where The Writers Credits Are As Big As The Actors And Directors… Tintin

This seems a rather rare occurence. Not on all the press certainly, but on this UK poster for Tintin in particular, the name of the writers is the same size as that as the director. And the cast. And the film’s subtitle. Indeed, the only thing bigger than the writers’ names is the main title […]

So How About Attack The Block: The TV Show – Or An American Remake?

I’ve really, truly loved Tyrannosaur, Arrietty, Crazy, Stupid Love and lots of other films this year, but so far, none has meant as much to me as Attack the Block. But I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep it on repeat: I’m not at all precious about remakes or sequels. If somebody wants to have […]

Lots Of New Tintin Images

Tintin will finally be with us next month. And by us I don’t mean United States, as the picture is opening much later in North America, way off on December 23rd. Some of the thinking there is that Tintin isn’t well known in the States. How this “problem” is going to be resolved by giving […]

“And Now An Important Message From The Director And Star Of Attack The Block”

Here’s a PSA starring Joe Cornish and John Boyega, the director and lead actor of Attack the Block. It’s most amusing. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQLa_8XvMCM[/youtube] Attack the Block remains the best film I’ve seen all year, and despite some stiff competition. Please go see it, I really think you’re very likely to fall in love with it. I […]
