Forests can be mysterious and bewildering places, but for Paul and his family it is one filled with horror and - at least at nighttime. When he meets a family of three in the vast woodland surrounding his home, he is of course suspicious about their journey. Nonetheless, he provides them with shelter at his boarded up house, with the strict condition that all rules regarding their security will be followed to the letter. They must only go out in groups, there is only one way in and out of the property and that door must be kept locked with only one set of keys which are on Paul's person at all times, and most importantly, they must never go out after dark. Of course, when the door is found to be open one evening, no-one is admitting to leaving it unlocked. Naturally, the two families start to become seriously mistrustful of each other and the real monster of the story makes his face known.

The film is set in a world of humans, orcs and elves.
In a world where we still have a lot to learn about diversity and inclusion between the members of a single human race, 'Bright' opens up that concept further with a world of many different races. In this Netflix Original Movie, it poses to challenge the harmony between humans, orcs and elves.
Will Smith stars as Scott Ward in 'Bright'
'Bright' is set in an alternate present-day Los Angeles where humans have been living amongst folkloric creatures the likes of orcs, elves and fairies for thousands of years. Directed by David Ayer ('Training Day', 'End of Watch', 'Suicide Squad') with a script written by Max Landis ('Chronicle', 'American Ultra'), it follows a nail-biting quest to save the planet with an undercurrent of parallels with real life racial issues.
Ridley Scott has hit back at criticism of the predominantly white casting in his new movie 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'
Ridley Scott has responded to the apparent lack of ethnic diversity in his latest movie Exodus: Gods and Kings, saying that having a lead actor called "Mohammad so-and-so" wouldn't enable him to get a film financed.

Scott insists that, had white actors not filled the major roles in the biblical epic, it would never have got off the ground financially.

Director Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven) talks about world of his new film, 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'. The film follows the life of Moses (Christian Bale), and works on "the complexity of his character". Scott also talks about what drew him to the material, namely, the "beauty in the massive scale of it". He discusses the process of using computers to turn four thousand extras look like twenty thousand soldiers. Aside from the battle scenes, we see evidence of the biblical plagues that come from the original story at work.

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton star as Moses and Rhamses in director Ridley Scott's big budget interpretation of the Exodus Bible story. The film isn't out until December but check out the trailer for 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'.
Director Ridley Scott has dealt with some epic stories whether it's the might of the Roman Empire and the obsession with gladiators, slavering murderous aliens in space or legends of British folklore. But now the 76-year-old director is tackling the Bible and is adapting the story of Moses for the big screen in Exodus: Gods and Kings.
Moses and the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses grew up together as brothers after the former was saved from drowing in the Nile. However, Moses has not forgotten the reason why he was cast into the river; all newborn Israelites were condemned to death by the past Pharaoh for fear of their growing numbers. Now he is enlisted by God to save the Israelites from their slavery at the hands of the Pharaoh's people, but to do so he must turn his back on his brother and friend. The Egyptians fight back as Moses defiantly leads the Israelites on an arduous journey across the desert, while God unleashes a series of horrific plagues and turns their Nile to blood. Egypt face new dangers as God decides that rules need to be laid down for Moses and his people.

Johnny Depp next stars in 'Transcendence' but his role as Whitey Bulger in 'Black Mass' is creating waves.
Johnny Depp has begun his promotional tour for his new science fiction thriller Transcendance, which opens on April 18. However, journalists appear to be more concerned with another of the actor's upcoming projects, Black Mass - in which he plays convicted mobster Whitey Bulger.

"I don't think of him as Whitey - it's James 'Whitey' Bulger," Depp said at the Four Seasons Hotel during a press day for Transcendence.

Chris Pratt is bulking up for his role in the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Chris Pratt, the 34-year-old actor who has bagged himself some pretty tasty roles in recent years, is bulking up for his role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Pratt is the latest movie star to undergo a dramatic physical transformation and posted his progress in an Instragram photo this week.
It's not the first time the Parks and Recreation actor has changed weight for a movie role - he sported a hugely toned physique for his role as a member of Seal Team Six in Kathyn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' last year.

Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge) is the perfect director to take on F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic novel about the American dream, simply because he's an expert at showing the emptiness of hyperactive excess. The film is a feast for the eye from start to finish, but it also eats away at us with its bleak story of people who live the high life even though it leaves them naggingly unsatisfied.
The tale is told by Nick (Maguire), trying to work through his life-changing summer in 1922 Long Island, where he rented a small cottage across the sound from his wealthy cousin Daisy (Mulligan), who is married to his college pal Tom (Edgerton), an all-American sportsman with an eye for other women. Next door to Nick's cottage is the vast mansion owned by reclusive millionaire Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio), who throws outrageously raucous parties for New York's celebrity class. But Nick realises that Jay only does this to catch the eye of Daisy, because he's still in love with her after a romance five years earlier. Now he wants to take her away from Tom, and he needs Nick's help.
It's tricky to know whether Luhrmann is celebrating Gatsby's luxuriant lifestyle or offering a cautionary tale about the emptiness of materialism. Obviously, the story is trying to do both, and Luhrmann fills the surfaces with decadent extravagance, filling the air with wafting fabric, buckets of glitter and exploding fireworks. Like a lavish 3D pop-up book, the party scenes are wildly over-the-top, as are smaller gatherings in opulent city flats or roaring open-top cars. These people's lives are so vacuous that they live at top speed, always in search of the next thrill. And it's difficult not to see Gatsby's earnest quest as just another greedy acquisition.
Continue reading: The Great Gatsby Review
The Hollywood Reporter says women are flocking to the cinemas to see The Great Gatsby.
This wasn’t in the script. Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale of the roaring twenties, The Great Gatsby, was one of the most anticipated movies of the year. With a huge budget, an all-star cast and various exotic filming locations, Gatsby was supposed to be the film of 2013. Hell, it was even supposed to be the movie that won Leonardo Dicaprio that elusive Oscar for best actor. Sure, that could still happen, but it's hugely unlikely.
One Of The Many Visually Impressive Scenes In The Great Gatsby
There’s no way to avoid the fact that Gatsby has been mauled by the critics. Though some have pointed in the direction of the stunning visuals, it soon became all too clear that Luhrmann forget one key element: Fitzgerald’s classic tale, the best possible material any director could have to work with. “This dreadful film even derogates the artistry of Fitzgerald, who wrote "The Great Gatsby" while living on Long Island and in Europe,” said Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal. J.R Jones of the Chicago Reader said, “Baz Luhrmann is exactly the wrong person to adapt such a delicately rendered story, and his 3D feature plays like a ghastly Roaring 20s blowout at a sorority house.” R. Kurt Oseland of Slant magazine pondered what could have been, saying, “When The Great Gatsby actually stops to breathe, there is some greatness to be found, however brief it may be.”

Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher from 'The Great Gatsby' discuss working on the movie in an interview. They talk about using the original novel as inspiration and working with director Bax Luhrmann and producer Catherine Martin.
'You have to go back [to the book] because it's where it is for a reason and you want to honour and respect Fitzgerald', says Isla, before Joel adds, 'There are clues for your character in there.' Isla describes Baz as 'larger than life, like his movies'. 'He's impeccably dressed, he's grammatically correct at all times, he's from another world', she says before wondering aloud if he is really magical. Joel chirps in, 'You also have to include Catherine Martin in that equation because she's the clothes on the mannequin. together they're like nuclear fusion.'

Leonardo Dicaprio, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher are all interviewed by various reporters on the red carpet at the New York premiere for 'The Great Gatsby'. Carey describes the premiere as 'crazy' and revealed she was too scared to get out of the car. Leonardo says that he 'really connected and was fascinated by the loneliness and isolation' of his character Jay Gatsby while Isla Fisher praises director Baz Luhrmann saying that his movies have 'a specific tone and style and pace [which is] what makes them so fabulous'.
'The Great Gatsby' premiered at the Lincoln Center in New York. Arrivals included one of the movie's stars Joel Edgerton, director Baz Luhrmann with his wife Catherine Martin and Florence + The Machine's Florence Welch who is snapped signing autographs for a crowd of fans.
Baz Luhrmann and F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel appear to be a match made in heaven.
Baz Luhrmann appears to have done it again. The Australian director has long been known for his visually arresting movies, Romeo + Juliet (1996), Moulin Rouge (2001) and Australia (2008) all garnered high praise for aesthetics and his next project The Great Gatsby - easily the most ambitious to date - appears to continue the trend. Firstly we had the trailer - which looked stunning - and now the latest stills from the movie appear to suggest the French filmmaker and F. Scott Fitzgeralds tale of love, power, money and destruct were a match made in heaven.

Bradley Cooper has taken Jude Law's role in 'Jane Got A Gun'
Jude Law out, Bradley Cooper in - that's the situation on Western revenge movie 'Jane Got a Gun'. The project appeared to be doomed a few weeks back when it lost its director the day before shooting was due to begin, (a descision that led onto Law quitting the project). Now, things appear to be getting back on track after 1821 Pictures secured the services of Oscar-nominee Cooper.
The Hangover star will play the villain role whilst 'Warrior' director Gavin O'Connor is now directing the movie, which is currently in production in Mexico. It stars Natalie Portman as a woman whose outlaw husband returns home riddled with bullet wounds. She is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm. Joel Edgerton, who features in the new Great Gatsby movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, plays the ex-lover. Michael Fassbender was initially earmarked for the role, though could not fit shooting into his busy schedule for 2013.
Cooper is currently in the middle of shooting David O'Russell's untitled movie, once named American Bulls*it. The film, which boasts a similar cast to that of Silver Linings Playbook, is loosely inspired by the true-life Abscam sting of the late 1970s and early 1980s, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Blistering writing, directing and acting hold us firmly in our seats as this procedural drama snakes its way to a riveting action finale. Although it's sometimes not easy to know whether director Bigelow and writer Boal are celebrating or criticising the way America has conducted itself on the world stage in its war on terrorism. Clearly the characters believe that these dodgy methods are essential tools in their job. But the film cleverly respects and challenges our own views on the issues.
The story begins with the events of 9/11, after which the CIA is determined to track down Osama bin Laden. Spearheading the search is tenacious analyst Maya (Chastain), who works with her colleague Dan (Clarke) to interrogate prisoners and mobilise their team (including Ehle and Perrineau) to action. Their bosses (Chandler and Strong), the CIA director (Gandolfini) and the national security advisor (Dillane) offer support and challenges. And eventually they get approval to illegally send a black-op team into bin Laden's suspected hide-out in Pakistan.
It's astonishing that Boal and Bigelow have managed to tell this true story without taking sides. They have been criticised for possibly using classified details or for depicting torture as an interrogation tool, but the facts can't be denied just because we don't like them. And your attitude going in will probably colour how you feel about the movie: some will find this a story of triumph while others will be troubled by the methods it depicts. Either way, it's impossible to ignore the film's urgency as it pulls us into a fascinating story.

Following the tragic events of the twin towers bombing on September 11th 2001 in New York City, Islamic extremist group Al Qaeda's leader Osama Bin Laden was the most wanted man in the entire world. He had managed to evade capture and certain execution for nearly ten years when, in the year of the 10th anniversary of the tragedy, he was found by the extraordinary Navy SEAL Team 6 and shot dead at his residence in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2nd. The event, however tarnished with conspiracy theories and speculation, marked a moment in history and was seen as a giant step in the current war on terror.
'Zero Dark Thirty' is the gritty historical drama telling the story of when Bin Laden was successfully captured and assassinated by a remarkable group of CIA operatives whose covert operations and well-kept secrets gave America their biggest victory in many years. With director Kathryn Bigelow ('Point Break', 'Strange Days') and writer Mark Boal ('In the Valley of Elah') who have previously worked alongside one another on the six time Academy Award winning war flick 'The Hurt Locker', it is set to be a seminal movie that may itself become an important part of history. It is set to be released on January 25th 2013.
Starring: Jessica Chastain, Scott Adkins, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Taylor Kinney, James Gandolfini, Mark Duplass, Harold Perrineau, Jennifer Ehle, Kyle Chandler, Frank Grillo, Stephen Dillane & Edgar Ramirez.

Of course, there's a plot you need to suffer through to marvel at the stunt casting, and it involves a presumably true story about Sinatra being wooed to visit Australia in 1974 by a two-bit promoter. Getting him Down Under is only half the fun. Once he arrives, Frank -- in his inimitable way -- insults a reporter (Portia de Rossi) by calling her a whore. Aussie's native sons rise to defend her, and over 100 unions go on strike to ensure Frank won't be able to eat, drink, travel, or take a shower -- much less perform on stage. Hilarity ensues as our promoter friend (Joel Edgerton) tries to patch things back together, dealing with his own love life along the way.

According to the studio advertising campaign, the 2004 mega-budget version of "King Arthur" is "the untold true story that inspired the legend" -- you know, the factual version in which Arthur is a brooding bore, Lancelot has hip, runway-model facial hair and Guinevere is a half-naked post-feminist warrior hottie.
Borrowing superficially from recent theories about Camelot's origins only as a jumping off point -- producer Jerry "Armageddon" Bruckheimer cares about cool explosions and box office receipts, not historical accuracy -- this commercialized concoction draws its regal hero (played by rising star Clive Owen) as an idealistic, half-Anglo high commander in the Roman army, which is in the midst of abandoning Britannia as a protectorate.
Arthur and his knights (Sarmatian soldiers reluctantly bound to imperial service) take it upon themselves to defend the now unguarded territory against invading hoards of barbarian Saxons from the north. But first they're sent on one last suicidal mission into Saxon territory to rescue a rich Roman family living there for no explored reason.

Plied with fiction and short on depth, the new biopic of legendary Australian outlaw Ned Kelly plays like "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" without the excitement, charm and humor.
Bearded and brooding but otherwise uncharismatic, Heath Ledger stars as the folk-hero bushranger (Aussie for "cowboy"), who according to this film was an upstanding citizen of the Outback frontier until contemptible, crooked, downright sinister lawmen drove him to a life of crime by picking on his family.
They jailed his ma, molested his teenage sister, and falsely accused him and his brothers of horse rustling. They "started a war" against us, Kelly says in voice-over. "So I killed their coppers. I robbed their banks."
