Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

spidey

In 2002, Evil Dead director Sam Raimi weaved a web of movies for Tobey Maguire’s fresh-faced nerd Peter Parker turned superhero Spider-Man. Spawning one of the best comic book sequels of all time with Spider-Man 2, and a disastrous third outing (with the best crotch based dancing) in Spider-Man 3, we’d all needed a regeneration for the creepy-crawly hero.

Their Finest trailer

Ahead of an April 7th release date, a brand new trailer has just been released for the Lone Scherfig-helmed World War II-set romatic dramedy THEIR FINEST, having caused a serious stir at various festivals including BFI and Sundance.

Penned by Gaby Chiappe,  Their Finest is an adaptation of Lissa Evans’ Orange Prize longlisted novel of the same name, starring Gemma Arterton as Catrin Cole who finds herself hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.

Their Finest also stars an extensive ensemble cast including the likes of Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Rachael Stirling, Richard E. Grant, Helen McCrory, Jeremy Irons and Eddie Marsan. The film opens in theaters this coming April 7th, 2017 and we’ll leave you with the official trailer below…

As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colorful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.

REVIEW: The LEGO Batman Movie

Lego Batman Review

Batman has been through the ringer. He has had a countless amount of conceptions from the weird and the whacky to the brooding and emotional; bad films to great films; awful films to genius films. Batman has had some black days and sometimes, really dark grey days.

Alice Lowe’s Prevenge Gets a Trailer and Preview Q&A Tour

alice-lowe-in-prevenge

Since Alice Lowe’s directorial debut, Prevenge, first debuted as the curtain opener for Critic’s Week at the Venice Film Festival, it went on to screen at many a key festival around the world including Toronto, Dinard, Sitges and London. Now, ahead of the film’s February 10th, 2017 release, Kaleidoscope are taking the film, and Lowe, on a 16 venue preview Q&A tour.

Lowe’s pitch black, wryly British comedy follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree as her misanthropic unborn baby dictates Ruth’s actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood. Lowe is a true triple threat here, having written, directed and acted in the film during her own real-life pregnancy. She also leads a strong British cast including Jo Hartley (Eddie the Eagle), Gemma Whelan (“Game of Thrones”), Kate Dickie (Red Road), Kayvan Novak (“Fonejacker”), Tom Davis (“Murder in Successville”), Dan Skinner (High-Rise), Tom Meeten (The Ghoul) and Mike Wozniak (“Man Down”).

The preview Q&A tour will be visiting the following venues: Lancaster (The Dukes, 16th Jan), Liverpool (Fact, 17th Jan), Bath (Little Theatre, 23rd Jan), Cardiff (Chapter, 24th Jan), Warwick (Arts centre, 26th Jan), Birmingham (Electric, 27th Jan), Glasgow (GFT, 30th Jan), Edinburgh (Cameo, 31st Jan), Newcastle (Tyneside, 1st Feb), Brighton (Duke of Yorks, 5th Feb), London (BFI Southbank, 6th Feb / Picturehouse Central, 8th Feb / Ritzy Brixton & Picturehouse Hackney, 9th Feb), Sheffield (Showroom, 13th Feb) and Leeds (Hydepark, 14th Feb).

Following the advance tour, Prevenge will be released by Kaleidoscope Entertainment on February 10th, 2017. In the meanwhile, we’ll leave you to enjoy the newly-spawned trailer…
