After James Bond was rebooted in ‘Casino Royale’ and the slight detour via the dreadful ‘Quantum of Solace (QOS)’, Daniel Craig’s era of Bond has spent a lot of time with training wheels on. ‘Skyfall’ has Bond still learning the ropes and leaning on 50 years of nostalgic gimmicks for appeal, but it could be the final step in a prolonged road to the first great Craig Bond flick.
If you’ve ever wondered that a historian’s nightmare looks like, it’s ‘Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter’.
All historical accuracies aside (or lack thereof) the film looks like a lot of fun and the latest red band trailer features lots of blood and vampires.
It’s the best trailer for the film so far and sells the concept well.
The film is based on the novel of the same name and reimages the life of Lincoln as an axe wielding vampire killing badass.
When the first ‘Men in Black’ film was released in 1997 the tagline was “protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe”, a cool little idea that combined sci-fi with comedy and the charisma of Will Smith successfully. 15 years later, 10 years after a bad sequel, ‘Men in Black 3′ arrives with the tagline “back in time” and the promise of 3D. Unfortunately, it’s a case of bad timing and instead of making a triumphant return ‘Men in Black 3′ comes across as a relic from the 90s with a shabby touch up paint job.
The Australian film ‘The Sapphires’ has premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2012.
The film played out-of-competition and following the screening it’s reported to have received a 10 minute standing ovation.
The film stars Jessica Mauboy, Deborah Mailman and newcomers Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell who play four women that were plucked out of country Victoria to become an Australian version of The Supremes.
The film has been acquired by the powerful US distributor The Weinstein Company, that is known for championing films such as ‘The Artist’ and ‘The Kings Speech’ and, we’re predicting it could be the next ‘Red Dog’ at the Australian box office.
