    Slated for release in August, “Bill and Ted Face The Music” promises to be a long awaited laugh in these most troubled of times.

    The first trailer and a glimpse of the advance movie poster were released last week.

  • 2020 Movie Releases - Updated Dates and New Trailers...

    On the 4th March 2020 a seven month delay to the release of Bond 25 “No Time To Die” was announced. We took a deep breathe. 

    Over the coming days, the scale of the global pandemic became clear and one-by-one studios announced delays to their 2020 blockbuster releases.

    With the caveat that no one really knows what will happen over the coming months, here are the currently forecast release dates and the latest trailers for the best of those movies.

  • Lock-Down Viewing - Mark Kermode's Take On The Spy Movie...

    Given that in last week’s post we focused on the Bond movies, I make no apology for plugging Mark Kermode’s Secrets of Cinema once again.

  • National Theatre Live – Now Streaming In Your (Locked-Down) Home…

    A few months ago, long before any of the current madness descended, we enjoyed an amazing evening at our local independent cinema. Not to watch a movie, but to virtually visit the theatre and to watch the amazing James Corden in ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’. 

    With the social distancing lock-down in place, you can’t visit the National Theatre, nor can you watch one of their productions in the cinema, but, thanks to National Theatre At Home, starting this week, you can watch ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ from the comfort of your own arm-chair...

  • An Amazing New Trailer And Poster From The Unique Wes Anderson...

    Since the turn of the century, few directors have established as distinctive a cinematic vision as Wes Anderson.

    You can watch it (and see the amazing movie poster), here...

    In their March 2020 edition, the superb EMPIRE magazine chose their ‘100 Greatest Movies of the Century (so far!)’.

    What do you think? Which film would be yours?

  • In Case You Missed the Superbowl - Some Amazing New Trailers!

    Given the time difference here in the UK, only the most ardent American Football fan is likely to have stayed up to see the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers to Superbowl 54.

    Those who didn't may also have missed the premiere of a number of fantastic trailers for upcoming blockbusters and the chance to relive another Groundhog Day!

    You can watch them all here...

  • A Fantastic Jurassic Short!

    2018's "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" left us in a world where dinosaurs roamed the U.S. mainland.

    We have to wait until 2021 for the final episode of the trilogy, but, in 2019, a new eight-minute short, "Battle At Big Rock" surfaced...

    It's well worth a watch!

  • How Many Times Do You Visit The Cinema? UK Cinema Attendance 1935 - 2018...

    How many times did you visit the cinema in 2019? We averaged a couple of times a month. Given what we do, I imagine that's not a surprise.

    What about the average cinema goer? How has that changed over the past few years? 

    We decided to do a little research with the help of the excellent UK Cinema Association. What we found was a surprising and fascinating story...

    With the return of James Bond, Doctor Dolittle and Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, 2020 looks set to be another great one.

  • James Bond 25 - The First Trailer!

    It is here at last! The first official trailer for Bond 25 - "No Time To Die".

    Now widely believed to be Daniel Craig's final outing as 007, the trailer shows Bond retired, a relic in a fast moving modern world, but maybe, just maybe, he could be the one to save us...

    Watch the trailer here...

  • Joker - All of the Movie Posters...

    As our favourite movie of the year becomes the first ‘R’ rated film to take $1B at the box office, rumours abound of a possible sequel.

    The movie posters for the film have been in high demand and the studio, agencies and distributors have excelled with some stunning images, using both art-house film-stills and illustration from some fantastic contemporary artists.

    In this week’s blog post, we pull together the ones we have found, and those that still elude us…
