Dirty Grandpa new Red Band Trailer

Robert De Niro has teamed up with Zac Efron for brand new comedy Dirty Grandpa, which is set to hit the big screen in January.

The movie marks the return of Dan Mazer to the director’s chair for what will be his first feature film since I Give It a Year back in 2013.

The brand new red-band trailer has arrived and you will see De Niro like we have never seen him before:

A great cast has been assembled for the film as Efron and De Niro are joined by Aubrey Plaza, Zoey Deutch, Julianne Hough, Danny Glover, and Dermot Mulroney.

Jason Kelly (Efron) is one week away from marrying his boss’s uber-controlling daughter, putting him on the fast track for a partnership at the law firm. However, when the straight-laced Jason is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, Dick (De Niro), to Daytona for spring break, his pending nuptials are suddenly in jeopardy.

Between riotous frat parties, bar fights, and an epic night of karaoke, Dick is on a quest to live his life to the fullest and bring Jason along for the ride. Ultimately, on the wildest journey of their lives, ‘dirty’ Grandpa and his uptight grandson discover they can learn from one another and form the bond they never had.

Dirty Grandpa is released 22nd January 2016.

Sunset Song Trailer

Agyness Deyn is a model turned actress who has been making a name for herself this year. She is back on the big screen at the beginning of December with new film Sunset Song.

Sunset Song is an adaptation of the novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon and has been adapted by Terence Davies, who is also in the director’s chair. This is the first feature film for Davies since he brought us The Deep Blue Sea back in 2011.

Check out the latest trailer for Sunset Song:

Deyn is joined on the cast list by Peter Mullan, Kevin Guthrie, Ian Pirie, and Niall Greig Fulton.

Told with gritty poetic realism by Britain’s greatest living auteur, Terence Davies, Sunset Song laments the devastation of war and pays fine tribute to the endurance of the land. Set in a rural Scottish community, Sunset Song is driven by the young heroine Chris (Deyn) and her intense passion for life, the unsettled Ewan (Guthrie) and for the unforgiving land.

The impact of the First World War is felt from afar, bringing the rapidly changing modern world to bear on this community in the harshest possible way. Yet, in a final moment of grace, Chris endures the great hardships. Now a woman of remarkable strength, she is able to draw from the ancient land in looking to the future. Sunset Song is an epic in emotional scale and deeply romantic at its core.

Sunset Song is released 4th December.

Victor Frankenstein – Of Monsters and Men Featurette

Victor Frankenstein is set to hit the big screen at the beginning of December and I am looking forward to seeing James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe work together.

It will be the first time that we have seen the popular British actors star together as they take on the central roles of Victor Frankenstein and Igor.

In this brand new featurette McAvoy and Radcliffe talk about the film and the title character:

Victor Frankenstein marks the return of Paul McGuigan to the director’s chair, while Jessica Brown Findlay, Daniel Mays, Andrew Scott, and Mark Gatiss make up a great cast list.

Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality.

But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.

Victor Frankenstein is released 3rd December.

Warriors Trailer

If you are a documentary fan then Warriors is a film not to miss this weekend. The movie follows a group of Maasai warriors who form a cricket team.

The movie sees Barney Douglas make his feature film directorial debut in what is unlike any other documentary that we have seen so far this year.

Warriors was released yesterday and here is the trailer for you to take a look at:

Warriors is a documentary following a group of young Maasai warriors who against the odds form a cricket team. Whilst the film follows the team as they pursue their dream of reaching England, the home of cricket, and test themselves in the amateur Last Man Stands World Championship; there is a darker heart to the story.

The Maasai are male dominated, women have few rights – even to their own bodies – and girls as young as six have suffered Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and early marriages, contributing to the spread of HIV/AIDS. The Warriors cricket team use their new-found unity on the field as an inspiration to those off it, attempting to educate and give young people a sense of belonging, support, and hope.

The film has been selected for the prestigious United Nations Cinema film screenings programme in Europe for world issues in early 2016 to support their mandate of promoting sport for peace and development.

Warriors is in cinemas now #WakeTheLion

Point Break – Rock Climbing Featurette

Point Break is set to hit the big screen in the new year, which is set to be an action-packed ride.

The new film is a remake of the 1991 film by Kathryn Bigelow and sees Ericson Core in the director’s chair this time around.

Point Break is set to show off some extreme sports and the team travelled to a remote spot in Venezuela for the rock-climbing sequences.

This brand new featurette takes us behind the scenes as they filmed these scenes for the film:

A young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes.

The film is replete with the most daring athleticism ever seen in a motion picture. These action adventure feats are performed by elite athletes representing the world’s best in class in big-wave surfing, wingsuit flying, sheer-face snowboarding, free rock climbing, and high-speed motorcycling.

Point Break is released 12th February 2016.

Britpop bands Blur, Oasis, Radiohead rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing. 27-year-old hit chasing A&R man Steven Stelfox (Nicholas Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where ‘no one knows anything’ and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public – ‘Yeah, those animals’.

Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox searches for his next hit record amid a relentless orgy of self-gratification. Created by an industry that demands success at any price, as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox takes the concept of ‘killer tunes’ to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career.
