Collide Trailer


Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) never had intentions of a life of crime, but during a backpacking vacation in Europe he gets drawn into a drug-smuggling ring in a bid to find the money to pay for his girlfriend Juliette Marne's (Felicity Jones) serious medical emergency. His role mainly involves driving, but the heist fails. Naturally he wants out of this life as soon as possible. When the love of his life is kidnapped, however, he is forced to return to his criminal past to get her back and enlists the help of his old boss Geran (Ben Kingsley). He'll do everything he can for Geran if it means taking out Hagen Kahl (Anthony Hopkins) - the merciless druglord who took Juliette - and getting his girlfriend back, even if that does mean risking his life in yet another high-speed Autobahn pursuit in Cologne. Sometimes it seems that it's only love keeping him alive.

Kristen Stewart: First Love Is An "Intense, Overwhelming Feeling"


Kristen Stewart Nicholas Hoult Robert Pattinson

Kristen Stewart has been reminiscing about the experience of falling in love for the first time, describing it as an “intense, overwhelming” feeling. The 26-year-old was previously in a high-profile relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson which ended in 2014, two years after the actress was caught in an embrace with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

In her new film Equals, Stewart and Nicholas Hoult play co-workers who fall in love while living in a futuristic society where emotions have been outlawed. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about the film Stewart said: "I read the script and I was just like, 'This is going to suck and hurt to think about.’”

X-Men Apocalypse Trailer


X-Men Apocalypse comes as the ninth instalment in the X-Men film series and stars Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy as Raven and Professor X. The X-Men are made up of a subspecies of humans that are born with superhuman abilities and are able to perform acts that are considered not normal for the average human.

X-Men: Apocalypse Review

Very Good

This closing chapter of the First Class trilogy falls into the same trap as The Last Stand, the final part in the original X-Men trilogy: it shifts the focus from character detail and social commentary into a more standard effects-heavy action brawl. There's still a lot of strong character detail, and a big story that can't help but be entertaining. But it's impossible to escape the feeling that the film's scale is far bigger than it needed to be.

It's now 1983, and while Professor X (James McAvoy) works with Hank (Nicholas Hoult) to set up his school for young mutants, his old friend and nemesis Erik (Michael Fassbender) has started a family in a rural corner of Poland. But he can't hide forever. Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is roaming the world helping mutants where she can, meeting the teleporting Kurt (Kodi Smit-McPhee) in Berlin before heading to Cairo. There, CIA operative Moira (Rose Byrne) has just uncovered a bizarre underground cult that has revived the ancient super-mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who immediately sets out on a quest to cleanse the planet and start over again. He needs four assistants, and the question is which of the X-Men will go over to the dark side.

This is the third comic book movie in a row about superheroes fighting each other, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. And it's similarly enormous (all three films are around two-and-a-half hours long), with mammoth battles that don't quite make logical sense but are compelling enough that the audience goes with them. This film has a bit more emotional depth, including back-stories that have been developed with unusual complexity. But some characters fall through the cracks.

X-Men Apocalypse - Teaser Trailer


Mutants and humans alike are familiar with the story of Apocalypse, he was the first mutant and began harnessing his power in ancient times. Now, millions of years after his reign, Apocalypse is reborn and finds himself in the middle of a modern society and shocked by the direction both human and mutant life has taken.

Feeling there are few options left, Apocalypse calls on the help of Magneto and a group of other mutants to help 'cleanse' the earth of all the citizens who have contributed to its downfall. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse - headed by Magneto - start to wreak havoc around the world and it looks like the X-Men's attempts to save it are all but lost - especially when their team is badly hurt by the loss of one member.

Brian Singer directs X-Men Apocalypse which reunites the lead cast from X-Men: Days of Future Past and sees the addition of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse.

M. Night Shyamalan Nicholas Hoult Vince Vaughn Adam Sandler Simon Pegg Johnny Depp

Most of these movies feature actors, actresses and filmmakers who really should have known better... Terminator Genisys,  The Visit, The Scorch Trails

10. Terminator Genisys
Surely this fragmented, messy reboot will sink this franchise forever. Nothing about the story or characters made any sense. But it looked cool. 

9. The Visit
M Night Shyamalan went minimal for this unoriginal found-footage horror-comedy that manages a hint of gleeful grisliness but no real characters or plot.

Max Rockatansky is a formidable traveller of the Australian outback, still fighting against the dystopian setting whereby population is low and resources are few. He is still suffering from past traumas - the loss of his family due to rogue criminals - and is scarred from his frequent rescue missions of the various tribes he has come across over the decades. This time, however, he is more prepared than ever to deal with the ever growing brutality of the ruffians out to kill him, and as usual he is prepared to be just as savage in order to survive. It's been a long time since any kind of law and order was held in the world, so sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.

X-men: Days Of Future Past Review


Excellent

Continuing to be the most original and resonant of the Marvel superhero franchises, the X-men return in the capable hands of director Bryan Singer, who again stirs plenty of meaty subtext beneath the thrilling action. He also has one of the best casts imaginable, including Oscar winners, cinema royalty, rising stars and matinee idols.

Best of all, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns to the fold after two less-than-thrilling solo adventures. He's at the centre of everything here, as Professor X and Magneto (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) ask Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine's consciousness back 50 years to 1973. His mission is to prevent Dr Trask (Peter Dinklage) from inventing mutant-hunting robots, because they will go out of control and cause a present-day dystopia in which mutants and anyone who sympathises with them are killed. But Wolverine's biggest task will be to get the then-feuding Professor X and Magneto (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) to work together to keep renegade mutant Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) from making everything worse.

Thankfully, Simon Kinberg's script doesn't worry too much about the whole time-travel thing, shrugging off dubious logic by keeping the focus on the characters. And there are a lot of people to keep an eye on, which makes the film sometimes feel a bit crowded and leaves some characters barely on-screen at all (blink and you'll miss Anna Paquin's Rogue). The best newbie is Evan Peters' Quicksilver, who gets the film's most entertaining sequence as he races around tweaking an action sequence frame by frame. Other set-pieces are grippingly darker, and some don't quite make sense (why does Magneto feel the need to levitate an entire stadium?).

X-Men: Days of Future Past - Clips


The world is verging on an apocalyptic disaster as the mutants continue to engage in vicious battles with only one possible outcome - their extinction. Unfortunately, any chance of saving the world from its oncoming fate has been and gone a long time ago - though there could be a way to change history. The two wisest mutants of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, have been at odds for a great many years, but they must this time unite to have any hope of saving their people. They contact Wolverine to help them on their mission to go back in time and convince their younger selves that trouble lies ahead if they don't make the right decisions; Wolverine is the only one who can take on such a task with his healing powers giving him enough strength, but can he possibly save the future?

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Trailer


The mutants of the world are quickly dwindling in their numbers, tearing each other apart until they are almost wiped out. Two of the wisest X-Men of the universe, Charles Xavier and Magneto, must now join forces despite their hostile relationship to go back in time and fix the world so that their kind can survive the horrors of their ravaged future. The duo enlist Wolverine to help them on their mission; a mutant whose healing powers make him the only one strong enough to travel in time. He must find the impulsive fools that are Xavier and Magneto as much younger mutants and warn them of what their actions will do for their future, while on the way attempt to save the life of an important political figure. Will the X-Men succeed in changing their future? Or are there some things in the past that can never be changed?

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' is the latest instalment of the Marvel film franchise following on from 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and 2011's 'X-Men: First Class'. Director Bryan Singer ('The Usual Suspects', 'Superman Returns', 'Valkyrie') returns alongside screenwriter Simon Kinberg ('Mr. & Mrs. Smith', 'Sherlock Holmes', 'Jumper'). The movie is set for release in the UK on May 22nd 2014.

Kaya Scodelario Skins Kayvan Novak Jack O'Connell Nicholas Hoult Lara Pulver Hannah Murray

Skin's Effy Stonem is hardly the kind of girl you'd expect to be working in business but here she is in series seven working ambitiously as a trader for a London hedge fund. The seventh and final series of E4's long-running Skins drama, entitles Skins Redux, is about to air in the UK. However now, the drug-taking, promiscuous, hedonistic days of youth for Effy, Cassie and Cook are long gone as they wrestle with the practicalities of adult life, such as holding down a stable job, the loneliness of the big city, and the resurfacing of the past.

Kaya Scodelario
Effy's Life Has Changed Incredibly Since Last Time We Saw Her.

The seventh series will be quite short - in just six parts - but will be divided into three stories following Cassie, Effy and Cook. Each part will be themed differently: 'Skins Pure', 'Skins Rise' and 'Skins Fire,' with a different character taking centre stage in each. The once reserved girl who went off the rails, Effy, brother to Tony Stonem (Nicholas Hoult), is followed through her job working for a hedge fund firm where she embarks on an affair with her boss; with things getting out of hand in typical Skins style, according to The Mirror. Cook (Jack O'Connell) is working as a drug dealer in Manchester but after he falls for a woman he really shouldn't, he is forced to confront his violent past.

Rekindled Romance? Jennifer Lawrence And Nicholas Hoult Spotted Dining Together


Jennifer Lawrence Nicholas Hoult

Are Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence getting back together, or still just good friends? The two young actors dated for a while but called off the relationship back in January, though they have remained good friends. On Monday night, the Daily Mail reported, the pair were spotted dining in a Hollywood restaurant, The Little Door.

Nicholas Hoult
Nicholas Hoult - spotted dinig with ex girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence

Nicholas, 23 and Jennifer, 22 tried to avoid the paparazzi by leaving the restaurant via the back door but it wasn’t a strong enough ruse to foil the photographers, who managed to grab a few shots of the couple as they got into Jennifer’s waiting car. For some reason, Lawrence was clutching a copy of the novel Anna Karenina as they left the restaurant – perhaps she’d been expecting a few lulls in the conversation… though that doesn’t seem likely as she often speaks of what great friends she and Hoult are. Before we all get too excited about Jennifer and Nicholas potentially rekindling their relationship, however, it’s worth remembering that they are working together right now, on the X-Men prequel Days of Future Past.

Jack The Giant Slayer Review


Very Good

We may sigh heavily at the thought of yet another fairy tale blockbuster, but the filmmakers and cast here demand a bit more attention. And sure enough, it's refreshingly smarter and funnier than we expect. There are still the problems of unnecessary 3D and far too many digital characters, but the restless pace and the witty performances make it a lot of fun to watch.

It's Jack and the Beanstalk with added action mayhem, as orphaned farmboy Jack (Hoult) sells his horse for a bag of supposedly magic beans. When one inadvertently gets wet, a massive beanstalk manages to propel Princess Isabelle (Tomlinson) into the realm of the giants, reawakening a legend that had died off centuries ago. So the King (McShane) enlists Jack to join a rescue team of guards (including McGregor, Marsan and Bremner) and Isabelle's intended, the shifty Roderick (Tucci). Up above the clouds, they encounter two-headed giant Fallon (Nighy) and his nasty horde. But rescuing Isabelle is only the first problem they face.

The freewheeling plot zips along without pausing for breath, encompassing massive set pieces and more gritty battles as well as small moments of drama and romance. Meanwhile, Jack and Isabelle cast lusty glances at each other, even when they're in physical peril. Director Singer brings out the energy of the characters to keep us involved, playing on the vertiginous angles of the settings while playfully deploying fairy tale imagery in the sets, costumes and landscapes. it's understandably why he decided to digitally create the giants rather than have actors play them, but this leaves a hole where the monsters should be. Aside from Nighy's more obviously performance-captured face, all of them look like dead-eyed cartoons, which essentially turns the film into a medieval Transformers movie.

Look Away Peter Jackson: Jack The Giant Slayer Is 'Superior' To 'The Hobbit'


Nicholas Hoult

With the awards season over and movie fans on the hunt for something fresh for 2013, Universal has got the ball rolling with 'Jack The Giant Slayer,' a fantasy epic about an ancient war reignited when a young farmhand accidentally opens a gateway between his world, and a fearsome race of giants. As the monsters run riot, young Jack - played by Nicholas Hoult - is forced to battle to stop them. 

Production on the movie has a long history, dating back to January 2009 when Universal hired D.J Caruso to direct. By the end of August that year, Caruso was replaced by Bryan Singer and principal photography began in April 2011 in Somerset, Gloucestershire and Norfolk, in England. Now, the release is finally upon us and critical reception has been mostly positive. Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter was perhaps the most effusive in his praise of 'Giant Slayer,' saying, "Simply in terms of efficient storytelling, clear logistics and consistent viewer engagement, Jack is markedly superior to the recent "Hobbit."

Scott Foundas of the Village Voice heaped praise of director Singer, suggesting he "evokes another era of fantasy filmmaking when the illusions before our eyes were created in an artist's studio rather than a computer lab. It's more Jason and the Argonauts than Shia and the Transformers." Julian Roman aired on the side of caution, though agreed there's plenty for the young family audiences, "The CGI effects and tepid intro will probably bore older viewers, but if you let yourself get into the story, then you're in for a decent time."

Warm Bodies Trailer


A young male zombie spends his days roaming the barren and devastated wasteland that is America with limited thoughts and actions, only able to remember that his name while he was human began with the letter 'R' and only yearning to eat the brains of the few remaining living humans just so he can connect and learn to feel alive again. It's a post-apocalyptic world where a huge proportion of the population have been infected by a plague turning them into forever wandering, blood thirsty, undead creatures; some still have a little human left inside them, while others (known as Boneys) are skeletal creatures devoted to eating anything and everything with a heartbeat. After 'R' and his dead associates are set upon by a gang of humans with guns, he finds himself feasting on the brain of a man and absorbing his memories and feelings. When he catches the eye of the man's girlfriend Julie, he is overcome with the bizarre feeling to protect her and takes her away to the abandoned airport to hide her. When the other zombies see them together, the emotions are set off throughout the lot of them and they and the survivors all find themselves banding together to fight the Boneys who still remain emotionless and highly dangerous. 

Directed and written by Jonathan Levine ('50/50', 'The Wackness'), 'Warm Bodies' is about a zombie nation being cured by the powerful thing that is love. It is based on the novel of the same name by Isaac Marion and is set to hit cinemas in the run up to Valentine's Day on February 8th 2013.

Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Dave Franco, Analeigh Tipton, John Malkovich, Cory Hardrict & Rob Corddry.

Jennifer Lawrence Dishes The Dirt On Relationships, Living With Her Parents And Being 'Obese'


Jennifer Lawrence Nicholas Hoult

By far one of Hollywood's brightest shining rising stars, Jennifer Lawrence seems as down to Earth as can be and really opened up during a recent interview with Elle magazine. In it, she spoke about her universally praised film roles, her relationship with British actor Nicholas Hoult and most absurdly of all, on being considered "obese."

"In Hollywood, I'm obese," she told the magazine in the interview earlier this week. Lawrence is nobodies idea of obese, unless you're utterly mad because the girl has a body to die for, but she went on to say that her choice not to be a stick-thin actress like so many others is down to her dedication as a role model for young people, "I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner."

Lawrence goes on to talk about living with her parent too, as the thought of living alone in a large Beverley Hills mansion rather than being surrounded by her family just seemed strange and unappealing to the young actress, as well as discussing her "best friend" and boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, "He's my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody."

Clash Of The Titans Review


Good
The studio clearly couldn't resist the chance to digitally revisit the creatures so memorably animated by Ray Harryhausen in the 1981 original. The result is an unnecessary remake that's loud, chaotic and mildly entertaining.

Perseus (Worthington) is a demigod who has been raised by humans and now finds himself at the centre of a war between man and the gods Zeus (Neeson), Hades (Fiennes) and Poseidon (a blink-and-you'll-miss-him Danny Huston). Accompanied by a handful of plucky warriors from Argos (including Mikkelsen, Cunningham, Hoult and Matheson) and his spirit-guide Io (Arterton), he heads off to find the secret to defeat Hades' feared Kraken so he can save Princess Andromeda (Davalos).
