The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies first trailer and poster

Strange to think that this slim volume has undergone such a seemingly problematic cinematic adaptation process, but The Hobbit‘s concluding part is finally hauling itself out of post-production, with a shiny new title and a debut trailer in tow. And clearly The Battle of the Five Armies was deemed to be a bit more exciting a tag line than There And Back Again. The story picks up from where The Desolation of Sma

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For red band Comic-Con trailer

Well there’s certainly a lot going on in this new red band trailer for highly stylised action sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. It’s got leatherfaced old dudes aplenty, alongside lots of writhing female flesh and a boatload of severed heads and limbs. If there’s one thing you shouldn’t expect from this movie, its subtlety. Sampling some of the characters from the original film while introdu

Horns: official Comic-Con trailer starring Daniel Radcliffe

While Justin Long is undergoing a creepy, crippling metamorphosis in the trailer for Tusk, it seems that Horns is at the other end of the same surreal spectrum. That’s because its star, Daniel Radcliffe, isn’t knocked for six by the appearance of supernatural nubbins on his noggin, without necessarily being hampered by them. Radcliffe plays a chap whose girlfriend is killed in suspicious circumstances, le

Hercules: review

It seems that a lot of actors are currently becoming the biggest movie stars in the world by sneaking under the radar. Aside from Robert Downey Jr’s recent renaissance, we’ve seen left of field phoenixes like Chris Pratt slink into the spotlight, shrugging off the disguises they wore to coast along as the comic relief and suddenly taking the helm of marquee movies as leading men. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson falls into this category. For a time it l

Overanalysing Pop Song Lyrics: Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera

Joe West looks at what is, on a lyrical level at least, one of the best pop songs of all time. So far in this series I’ve taken songs that I quite like and shown that they lyrics are, if not actively nonsensical, very easy to satirise. But with Genie in a Bottle, I might have met my m
