Tom Hardy may be use to throwing fists on the big screen but now he's looking to trade leather for real by stepping into the ring with former British heavyweight champion David Haye. The mouthy Haye stated after his recent brawl inspired bout with the equally gobby Derek Chisora "Me and Tom Hardy, that would be a good fight for sure. He's got in fantastic shape. He looks like an absolute tank. He can be my next opponent."
Despite the tongue-in-cheek suggestion, Hardy has stepped up to the challenge on the proviso that all proceeds from the fight go to the military charity Help For Heroes, The Prince's Trust, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and homeless charity FLACK. Taking the call-out in good humour Hardy told The Sun newspaper "Hardy v Hayemaker? No problem. Let me take my make-up off first. I'll fight him as soon as I get back from the Congo with my mates if he wants. I've never fought a professional heavyweight, it'll be an experience. I would obvious ... Read more »

You wait years for a follow-up to The Shining (1980) then two come along at once.
The Grady Twins, proving that its somehow possible to be axed to death but still be in one piece...
Horror maestro Stephen King has recently announced that he's about to start work on a sequel to his original masterpiece The Shining. Tentatively titled Doctor Sleep, part two will follow Jack Torrance's son Danny forty year after the events of the Overlook. Danny now works at a hopsice, using his powers to help the terminally ill move safely into the afterlife. Meeting up with a twelve year old girl who also has the ability to "shine", Danny has to help the youngster fight off a group of travelling paranormal murderers (in the form of elderly, polyester wearing, RV driving, retired folk) who prowl the highways of America looking for the souls of those that can " ...

If you've been to the cinema recently you'll be well aware of the anti-piracy adverts doing the rounds. "You wouldn't steal a car", "Love film hate piracy", "You're funding terrorism you piece of scum" and other unchallengeable declarations. Before we go any further I'm not here to advocate piracy. If you poured all your time and effort into creating something special, you'd want paying for it to. But cinema proprietor's belief that their profits are falling through the floor due to film piracy is utter lunacy. Cinema chains don't want to know the real reasons people are leaving in droves, but unless they want to end up becoming another Nandos or Starbucks, they better start paying attention. Are you listening Odeon, Cineworld, VUE and the rest?

So the results are in and Christopher Nolan didn't let us down with The Dark Knight Rises (2012). It gave us everything we were hoping for, bigger scale, tricky twists, good links to the previous films, and a conclusion that wrapped everything up nicely. But what next for DC's biggest hero. If Marvel's The Amazing Spiderman (2012) is to become par-for-the-reboot-course the cape and cowl could be returning to screens much sooner than we think. So what are the options...
- With The Avengers (2012) earning a pretty penny at the box office DC will be eyeballing their own superhero team-up, the Justice League of America. Whether they want to plough through the number of prequels that Marvel went through who knows, but with Superman getting a reboot with the upcoming Man of S ... Read more »

The Dark Knight Rises (2012) doesn't hit screens until the 20th July, but the first reviews from preview screenings have started to trickle in. Even though director Chris Nolan had to go some to top The Dark Knight (2008) not many people envisioned him screwing up the final part of his Batman trilogy. And the early word is he hasn't.

The Mily Miracles said "This may go down as one of the best movies ever....if this does not break the mould and win Best Picture, no comic book movie ever will". Comments were similarly glowing after a Warner Bros press screening this week, "Quite speechless at the moment, it was everything I wanted it to be", "...perfect final chapter in the trilogy", "...one of my favourite movies I've ever seen, it was unbelievable" were just a selection of the tributes that followed a post showing standing ovation. Par for the course then you might say given the months of gushing we've endured over the various Rises tra ... Read more »

Given the slightly underwhelming reception Ridley Scott's long awaited Alien (1979) prequel has received, the director has spoken out to answer some of the Prometheus (2012) head-scratchers. Unfortunately, who tea-leafed the scares and wrote the cheesy dialogue were not questions that were knocked on the head. But speaking to Empire Magazine Scott did kick some of the other question marks into touch.
The main grey area tackled was the odd opening scene with the Engineer downing a pot of the black liquid; Scott called it "a donation. Its fundamentally creation". After downing the dark stuff the Engineer's DNA deconstructs and flows into the water. We can thus assume this creates life, our life. But the planet this happens on is not Earth.
However, Scott did confirm that ... Read more »

I don't like musicals. The reason is two-fold. First, people bursting into song destroys storytelling. Nothing muddies and slows down the narrative like ten minutes of warbling, ambiguous lyrics clouding up character motivation so you're not sure what they're feeling, why and about whom. Second, despite being called "musicals" nearly all musicals purvey one type of music. There's no reggae, there's no hard rock, there's no trance, drum 'n' bass, acid jazz, folk or blues; there is only, what I call, Musical Music.

Approximating Musical Music is a bit tricky. Its not quite pop, is not quite classical. What it is is that music you hear piped into shopping malls up and down the country, knock-off versions of popular classics like Robbie Williams back catalogue, re-recorded by some bloke called As ...

I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to see Ridley Scott's Prometheus (2012) at a special midnight screening on Thursday. As a movie fan whose two favourite films of all time remain Ridley Scott's Alien (1979) and James Cameron's Aliens (1986), Scott's return to the series was long awaited, particularly after the sorrow of Alien 3 (1992), AvP (2004) and the other assorted Alien themed crap. Like most fans I was expecting and hoping Prometheus (odd title aside) would lead nicely into Alien (1979) and tie up all the loose ends that had been hanging around for thirty three years. Where did the aliens come from, what was the space jockey and the large figure that sat in it, what happened to the "U" shaped ship on LV-426?
