It co-stars Lara Pulver (“Edge of Tomorrow”), Arsher Ali (“Remainder”), Stuart Graham (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) and Ian McElhinney (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”).

A Patch of Fog review – Belfast thriller treads a well-worn but nicely acted path

Sterling performances by Conleth Hill and Stephen Graham as an author and his stalker lend ballast to Michael Lennox’s debut feature

Michael Lennox is the Northern Irish director whose 2014 short Boogaloo and Graham was nominated for the short film Oscar, and won Bafta’s equivalent award for the same film. (Lennox also directed Awaydays, the Stephen Fingleton-scripted short that Fingleton himself expanded into the widely admired post-apocalyptic thriller The Survivalist.) Now Lennox is making his own feature film debut with this Belfast-set thriller, which treads a well-worn path as it investigates the symbiotic relationship between a celebrated author and TV personality, and his security-guard stalker.

Rotterdam 2012: First stills and poster for 70s poltergeist story When The Lights Went Out

Having it's world premier at Rotterdam is Pat Holden's (Awaydays) poltergeist thriller which is supposedly based on a true story. Described as having some incredible 1970's art direction, the story revolves around a family who moves into their dream home only to find an unwelcome 'presence' who soon makes friends with their 12 year old daughter. The film is produced by Bil Bungay who worked on Duncan Jones Moon and I have it on good authority from one critic that it's a great film, but that doesn't mean anything until we at Quiet Earth get to judge for ourselves. We've been eagerly awaiting a trailer and have been in touch with the folks behind the film, so as soon as we get it, you'll see it!

Afm '11: 'Truth or Dare' Warns That

Kevin Sampson: How my fictional band the Grams came to play V festival

Why is it so hard to capture the energy of rock'n'roll on film? That's what Powder writer Kevin Sampson asked himself as he watched the Grams take to the stage

A crowd of some 50,000 edged forward with mild irritation as the Grams took to the stage. The lad next to me nudged his pal, their faces set in that certain way that has become ritual at music festivals over the years.

"Here come the whipping boys," said those faces. "Get the bottles of wee-wee ready."

It was quite some journey that had taken the Grams to this top-end-of-the-bill slot at the V Festival. Paolo Nutini had just finished, the Enemy were on next, with Oasis due to play what turned out to be their last-ever show later that night. So what were a band that doesn't actually exist doing up there on stage?

First look at Truth Or Dare

  • ScreenTerrier
Screenterrier posted the casting call for indie pyschological film Truth Or Dare, back in November 2010. With the film now in post-production, a full synopsis and first image have now emerged.

Five teenage friends are taken hostage by a vengeful psychopath and forced to play a party game with life-or-death consequences.

An end-of-year party for an 'alpha' group of first year university students turns nasty when a game of 'truth or dare' ends in humiliation for ultra-rich social misfit Felix. For five students at the gathering, this unpleasant but seemingly minor incident will have unexpectedly devastating repercussions.

Some months later, the friends meet again en route to a surprise party for Felix, who has been away traveling. Arriving at the venue - an old hunting lodge - they are met by Justin, Felix's charismatic older brother, who explains that Felix will be late for the party. He persuades the gang to

This March sees the first official DVD release of Arrivederci Millwall, a hard-hitting British rarity about football hooliganism in the dark days of the early 80s, which is credited as having inspired the recent wave of football hooligan flicks such as The Football Factory (2004, dir.

Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 casting update

Who’s going to be joining Johnny Depp in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides next summer? More casting news has been forthcoming…

Production is set to begin in the next couple of months on what's effectively a reboot for the Pirates Of The Caribbean cinematic franchise. The fourth film, entitled On Stranger Tides, definitely has Johnny Depp returning as Captain Jack Sparrow, and Geoffrey Rush will also step aboard once more as Barbossa. We also know that Penelope Cruz has signed up, and that Ian McShane is on villain duties.

Speculation, however, has now been rife over who's going to slip into the ‘Orlando Bloom role'. Bloom's character won't be returning, but Disney is looking for a not dissimilar part for a young male actor. And apparently, the two names in the running are Max Irons (son of Jeremy), and Sam Claflin. We might be going out on a limb here,
