Watch New Demolition Cast Featurette

Demolition has hit the big screen this weekend and sees Jean-Marc Vallée, who has brought us Wild and Dallas Buyers Club in recent years, back in the director’s chair.

The filmmaker has brought together another fantastic cast as Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper and newcomer Judah Lewis are all set to star.

And you can meet this great cast in this brand new featurette. Take a look:

Davis (Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel.

What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection.

With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.

The Divide Trailer

Katharine Round has returned to the director’s chair this week with her new documentary The Divide, which follows people trying to make a better life for themselves in the UK and U.S.

The movie has whipped up a storm of the festival circuit and is set to be a film not to miss this weekend if you are a fan of this genre.

Here is the trailer for you to take a look at:

The Divide – Official Trailer from Dartmouth Films on Vimeo.

The Divide tells the story of 7 individuals striving for a better life in modern day US and UK – where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%. By plotting these tales together, we uncover how every aspect of our lives is controlled by one factor: the size of the gap between rich and poor. This isn’t based on real life. This is real life.

Wall Street psychologist Alden wants to make it to the top 1%; Glaswegian rapper Darren just wants to stay sober; Newcastle carer Rochelle wishes her job wasn’t looked down on so much; Jen in Sacramento, California, doesn’t even talk to the neighbours in her upscale gated community – they’ve made it clear to her she isn’t “their kind”. It becomes clear that a higher income doesn’t ensure happiness and inequality hurts us all – rich and poor.

By weaving these stories with news archive from 1979 to the present day, The Divide creates a lyrical, psychological and tragi-comic picture of how economic division creates social division. The Divide also features high profile commentators including former economic adviser to Margaret Thatcher, Sir Alan Budd, historian Sir Max Hastings, economist Ha-Joon Chang, Noam Chomsky and epidemiologist Sir Michael Marmot. The Divide serves as both a call to arms, and a powerful warning.

The Divide is out now.

Florence Foster Jenkins Behind The Scenes Featurette

Meryl Streep is set to take on the title role in new biopic Florence Foster Jenkins and it is set to be a movie not to miss this May.

This brand new featurette takes us behind the scenes and the cast talk about the film and their characters:

Streep is joined on the cast list by Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Nina Arianda.

The voice Florence (Streep) heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals, her devoted husband and manager, St Clair Bayfield (Grant), managed to protect Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give her first public concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall, St Clair realised he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.

Florence Foster Jenkins is released 6th May.
