  • post Kingsman: The Golden Circle spies an opportunity at the UK box office ? and grabs It - 26 September
  • Matthew Vaughn?s spy caper sequel opens bigger than a string of 2017 summer blockbusters; while Stephen King horror drops into second place The reviews may have been mixed, but producer-director-writer Matthew Vaughn once again demonstrates his savvy populist instinct. The darkly comic spy adventure opens in the UK with £6.2m, with Wednesday and Thursday previews taking that tally to a five-day £8.53m. This compares with a £3.56m debut for 2015?s Kingsman: The Secret Service, or £4.24m including previews. Continue reading...
  • post Never go back: why the Terminator reunion may be a recipe for failure - 26 September
  • Restoring Linda Hamilton and James Cameron to the man versus the machines saga could be a smart move, but plenty of great directors ? from Ridley Scott to George Lucas ? have stalled when returning to past gloriesIn the realm of Hollywood sci-fi, only one future is guaranteed. If a movie finds even a modicum of success with audiences, it will eventually be remade or turned into the starting point for a franchise. Who would have thought that a well-received but largely forgotten 1973 thriller about a wild west-style amusement park whose android cowboys turn on their guests would spark the best new television show of last year, in HBO?s Westworld? And who might have imagined in 1984 that The Terminator, a low budget futuristic vision from rookie film-maker James Cameron, would still be knocking around Hollywood 20 years after the date upon which the machines were supposed to have destroyed human civilisation?

  • post James Corden's Peter Rabbit: another kids' classic wrecked forever - 25 September
  • A new trailer reveals Beatrix Potter?s gentle rabbit has been turned into a house-trashing, cocky jerk. It looks like he?s gone the way of Postman Pat and ThunderbirdsIn a concrete bunker situated miles below civilisation lives a crack team of scientists dedicated to one thing and one thing only: ruining Peter Rabbit as comprehensively as they possibly can.Parents of young children might be fooled into thinking that their mission has already been a success. After all, there?s already a CBeebies Peter Rabbit adaptation that paints the sedate, 115-year-old Beatrix Potter character as a go-get-?em adventurer whose escapades are typically soundtracked by a series of nightmarish sub-Levellers songs about standing your ground and laughing in the face of danger.

  • post Pixel wizards: meet the unsung heroes bringing your favourite films to life - 25 September
  • Forget directors, the real stars behind the likes of The Jungle Book and Star Wars are the VFX artists who build their digital worlds. We report from the cutting edge festival offering a glimpse into the secret life of cinema
    ?So I need to know: Are you ready to be transformed?? shouts Scott Ross to the 900-strong crowd in the auditorium. They respond with raucous applause. To them, Ross is a legend. He ran George Lucas?s visual effects company, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) in the 1980s, then founded his own Oscar-winning effects firm with James Cameron. His audience is largely made up of young people looking to follow in his footsteps: animators, video game designers, concept artists, illustrators and effects specialists. These are the people who build the digital worlds where we?re increasingly spending our leisure time ? in movies, games, and virtual reality. They are transforming culture and they?ve come here to transform themselves, even if they?re not exactly sure what into.
    Welcome to Trojan Horse Was a Unicorn. If the name sounds odd, that seems to be the idea. It takes place in Troia, Portugal, an idyllic peninsula just south of Lisbon. Its organisers describe it as ?Burning Man meets TED Talks?, though it?s equally a spiritual retreat. Students and young professionals come here from across the world, as do big industry names looking to hire new talent, make connections and softly promote their brands ? brands such as Disney, DreamWorks, Pixar, Google, Oculus (the Facebook-owned VR company), King (the makers of Candy Crush Saga) and Unity (makers of the pre-eminent game engine).

  • post From Blade Runner to Rollerball: did cinema's sci-fi dystopias predict the future? - 25 September
  • We are living in the era imagined by science-fiction films ? but is reality really mirroring fiction? Related: Deadly reality TV and sex robots: what can we learn from films set in 2017? Police cars can?t fly, artificial snakes are not commercially available, and the exodus to off-world colonies has not yet begun, but we?re already living in the world of Blade Runner ? chronologically, at least.
