Exploding with the glamour and pace we’ve all come to expect of Baz Luhrmann films The Great Gatsby looks like it’s going to be another classic from the director.
This new TV spot will be sure to get you curious enough to venture to the cinema on release day and see Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Jason Clarke and Joel Edgerton take on this 20′s classic!
Remember Die Hard, remember how it’s still the best action film ever made? Well White House Down has adopted that winning formula and put it in to (the name gives it away) White House. Channing Tatum plays John Cale, an off duty cop who finds himself protecting the President (Jamie Foxx) from an attack.
White House Down is directed by Roland Emmerich who was at the helm of Independence Day and 2012, so we can guarantee some huge stunts in what is shaping up to look like a truly epic movie!
Kathryn Bigelow’s much anticipated follow up to The Hurt Locker hits cinemas tomorrow, and boy are you in for a treat.
Teaming up once again with writer Mark Boal, Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty is an intense and intelligent drama that will grip you and not let go until your heart is in your mouth.
Following the hunt for and the eventual assassination of Osama Bin Laden Zero Dark Thirty looks at the process of tracking down the worlds most wanted man through torture, investigations and tracking.
Zero Dark Thirty is truly an excellent piece of cinema, whilst it is a dialogue driven film, the characters and performances ensure it is never slow, in fact the total opposite. It moves at a steady pace, gradually building tension that had my heart pounding.
The strong dialogue is done justice by the outstanding lead performance from Jessica Chastain as Maya, a woman determined to find the world’s most wanted man. The supporting cast including Jason Clarke (Lawless), Kyle Chandler (Argo) Harold Perrineau (Romeo and Juliet) Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Britain’s very own Mark Strong are all captivating.
The final action scenes are shot with stunning expertise, replicating a sense of tension and chaos beautifully, drawing you into the centre of the action.
While it’s early on in the year, and 2013 is set to be filled with great movies, I can hand on my heart say this is likely to be in my top 5 films all year.
The sunning cinematography, the intelligent writing and a stellar cast make Zero Dark Thirty the first must see movie of the year.
Zero Dark Thirty hits cinemas tomorrow.
