There are less than 28 days to go till Secret Cinema gets a lot darker as it enters an entirely new genre. Amidst much speculation we can now reveal that the next movie to receive the Secret Cinema treatment is Danny Boyle’s 2002 British cult classic, 28 Days Later.

The post apocalyptic thriller, often attributed to reinvigorating the entire zombie genre on a whole, stars Cillian Murphy as Jim, a bicycle courier who awakes from a coma to find that a virus has spread amongst the populace, all but resulting in complete societal collapse. The narrative then unfolds to follow the journey of Jim as he struggles to come to terms with what has happened and, ultimately, survive in a London that has been torn apart by the infected.

The 28 Days Later show will also act as the nationwide launch of Secret Cinema at this scale. Alongside the shows in London, another secret city will also be home to the experience.

Andrew Macdonald, producer of 28 Days Later said:

“Secret Cinema never fails to amaze with their experiences, and it’s exciting to see them tackle their first ever horror. London prepare.”

Macdonald, the film’s director Danny Boyle, as well as screenwriter Alex Garland, support the project and are excited about Secret Cinema’s approach.

Fabien Riggall, Founder and Creative Director of Secret Cinema said:

“Secret Cinema is excited to step into the world of horror with Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, a true British horror classic - we look forward to creating a suitably frightening and exhilarating experience. Secret Cinema’s expansion over the last nine years has been remarkable, we’ve now created experiences in New York and Berlin, as well as the many in London. But this will be a turning point for us as we embark upon our very first UK nationwide production.”

Secret Cinema will return from 14th April 2016 to 29th May 2016 and tickets will go on sale at 1pm on Thursday, 3rd March 2016 via the Secret Cinema website: www.secretcinema.org/tickets.

The 28 Days Later show will be part of the Secret Cinema Presents series and the first major show in 2016 following the huge success of Star Wars. It follows the critically acclaimed Secret Cinema “Tell No One” production (February-March) which reveals neither the title nor the location of the film.

More details on location for 28 Days Later will be revealed in due course but until then, repent, the end is extremely nigh.

Lexus has introduced the new Lexus RX with a cool concept video featuring Jude Law. Filmed in 360º video using 80 GoPro cameras you can direct the view as you wish during this 6 minute immersive theatre experience.

Guests were told they would turn up to see the new Lexus and instead they got thrown into a feature film experience where they were the stars and Jude Law guided them along the way. The unique-ness of the film reflects the unique qualities of the new Lexus RX which has a sculpted body, 20-inch customisable wheels and razor sharp design.

The unsuspecting guests are congratulated on their stellar performances, given the Lexus to drive to their very own red carpet ceremony and then watch the swiftly edited film played back to them at their private ‘screening’. During the test drive of the car the London audience members encounter a multi-sensory world of luxury, excitement and thrills - the factors that the new Lexus effortlessly embodies. The new Lexus RX is perfect for those who understand the importance of making an impression; successfully encapsulating contemporary luxury lifestyle. We are loving the new shape and sleek design, it’s a great city car for swooping around London streets and looking pretty slick whilst doing so. A perfect car for city life, keeping things at an aspirational level but still affordable, just the space the WJ London and it’s readers like to occupy!
