  • post Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again review ? feta fever dream sequel is weirdly irresistible - 17 July
  • I was not among those begging for a followup to the wildly successful 2008 Abba musical. But after just a few scenes, all I could say was: Gimme, Gimme, GimmeBenny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of Abba must over the years have considered what they would do if they were asked to sign off on a second iteration of what can only be called the Mamma Mia! movie franchise ? which first appeared in 2008. Perhaps they thought that, in the words of the song: ?If I had to do the same again, I would my friend, because quite frankly it?s a licence to print money.?That first film made me break out in a combination of hives and bubonic plague. And to be honest, this new one does have the original film?s plotless melange of feelgoodery, an exotically amorphous jellyfish of a film which is periodically zapped with the million-volt shock of a zingingly brilliant Abba tune.

  • post Tom Six's The Onania Club: is this the year's most loathsome trailer? - 17 July
  • The trailer for Human Centipede director?s new film, in which women masturbate over footage of 9/11, is simply witless provocationIf you?ve read any of these trailer reviews before, you?ll know that they operate to a rigid formula. I watch the trailer, I screengrab the trailer and then I make a series of hackneyed non-jokes about the trailer. This approach works for most films; but not The Onania Club.The trailer for The Onania Club ? Tom Six?s barely anticipated follow-up to the Human Centipede trilogy ? was released yesterday. It is 40 seconds long, and it cannot be screengrabbed. This is because, in its entirety, The Onania Club?s trailer just consists of women masturbating to 9/11. Continue reading...
  • post A hotline to Satan: why is the ex-CEO of Vodafone making a film version of Faust? - 16 July
  • He used to broker billion-dollar deals with telecom giants. Now he?s making a pact with the devil. We go behind the scenes of Philipp Humm?s AI take on Goethe?s damnation epicIn studio six, an actor has stripped to his pants and is waiting to be smeared with blood by two female dancers: one in a black leotard, the other in a white one. He is playing Mephistopheles, the women are interpreting the child-devouring Lamia of Greek myth, and I?m watching day 13 of an unlikely and wildly ambitious film shoot.We?re on a dismal industrial estate in north-west London where Faust, Goethe?s drama of damnation, sexual betrayal, witchcraft and freeform philosophic meditation, is being adapted by Philipp Humm ? a man who until three years ago was CEO of Vodafone Europe. Martin Hancock, a former star of Coronation Street, is playing the title role, while the devil is being performed by Glyn Dilley, an actor so versatile that he has played both physicist Isaac Newton in a Fifa video game and Johnnie Cradock in TV comedy Fanny and Friends.

  • post Most expensive Chinese film ever pulled from cinemas after it bombs - 16 July
  • Dismal first-weekend takings and suggestions of organised trolling responsible for film?s withdrawal by producersThe massively hyped Chinese fantasy epic Asura has been pulled from cinemas after a disastrous opening weekend.With a production budget reported at 750m yuan (£85m), Asura ? with its complex special effects, big-name stars and huge crew ? was hailed as China?s most expensive film ever made. However, its opening weekend takings totalled 49m yuan (£5.5m), and it was immediately withdrawn from cinemas. Continue reading...
  • post Skyscraper collapses in dramatic fashion at box office despite Rock-fuelled hype - 16 July
  • Dwayne Johnson overload cited as one of the main reasons for the action blockbuster?s surprise defeat by Hotel Transylvania 3The Rock may not be box-office platinum after all. Skyscraper, the latest putative blockbuster vehicle for the actor also known as Dwayne Johnson, has unexpectedly flopped on its US release, with an estimated box-office first weekend total of $25.5m, well beaten by kiddie animation Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. Related: Skyscraper review ? The Rock towers over an inferno of cliches Continue reading...
  • post How Tom Cruise made ?going rogue? a Hollywood staple - 16 July
  • From Mission: Impossible to Red Sparrow, do we need rule-busting rebels on screen when there are so many in reality?If you can remember the plots of the previous five Mission: Impossible movies, you are either some kind of movie savant or you?re Tom Cruise. But if you had to guess any of them, including the forthcoming Mission: Impossible ? Fallout, you could safely say either: ?Tom Cruise goes rogue?, ?Tom Cruise goes after someone who?s gone rogue?, or possibly ?Who cares? Remember those awesome stunts!? And, basically, you?d be right. The previous instalment featured all three: it had a secret spy project that had gone rogue. To infiltrate it, Cruise?s Ethan Hunt had to go even roguer (and hang on to the outside of a plane). In case you?d forgotten, it was called Mission: Impossible ? Rogue Nation, although that could be the title for any of them, and many other movies besides. Continue reading...
  • post Lost Stanley Kubrick screenplay, Burning Secret, is found 60 years on - 15 July
  • Script co-written by director is so close to completion it could be developed into a feature filmHis first world war classic, Paths of Glory, is one of cinema?s most powerful anti-war movies, widely acclaimed as a masterpiece, as was his Roman epic, Spartacus, both of which starred Kirk Douglas. Now a ?lost? screenplay by director Stanley Kubrick has been discovered ? and it is so close to completion that it could be developed by film-makers.Entitled Burning Secret, the script is an adaptation of the 1913 novella by the Viennese writer Stefan Zweig. In Kubrick?s adaptation of the story of adultery and passion set in a spa resort, a suave and predatory man befriends a 10-year-old boy, using him to seduce the child?s married mother.

  • post Mamma Mia 2 makers hope to repeat box office success - 14 July
  • My my, how can fans resist Cher singing Fernando and playing Meryl Streep?s mum?Can they do it again? The makers of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again certainly hope they can persuade audiences to pack their fantasy swimsuits and mosquito repellent next weekend for another fictional cinematic holiday on their ideal Greek island.Cher, along with most of the stars of the first film, which made £466m at the box office a decade ago, gathered together in London on Saturday, ahead of the 20 July release of the follow-up musical.
