Ghost Stories - Global Trailer and Poster


Based on Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s original Olivier nominated stage production, the same team have co-written and directed this adaptation for the big screen.

Starring Martin Freeman, Alex Lawther, Andy Nyman, Paul Whitehouse, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Andy Nyman also leads the cast, reprising his role as Professor Goodman alongside Paul Whitehouse (Alice in Wonderland, ‘Harry & Paul’, ‘The Fast Show’), Alex Lawther (‘Black Mirror’, Old Boys, The Imitation Game) and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit franchise, ‘Fargo’, ‘Sherlock’).

Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology, arch-skeptic, the one-man ‘belief buster’ – has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the ‘original’ TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet. Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three stories that have shaken Cameron to his core. As Goodman investigates, he meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last.

GHOST STORIES in cinemas on Friday 13th April 2018.

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies - Official Teaser Trailer and Artwork


Synopsis
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big!  “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is!  But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick.  If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them.  With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream.  But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry.  The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

Will Arnett (“The LEGO® Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) lend their voices to the first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show, which also stars Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series.

The film is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC.  Michail, Will Arnett and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic and Horvath serving as executive producers.  Apart from Arnett, all are “Teen Titans GO!” series contributors.

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES is released August 3, 2018.


Created Equal - Poster and Trailer


Created Equal follows the story of Thomas “Tommy” Reilly (Aaron Tveit), a cocky, up-and-coming attorney, who begrudgingly takes on a case for Sister Alejandra “Allie” Batista (Edy Ganem), who's desperate to become a priest in the Catholic Church. Against his supervisor's wishes, Tommy files suit against the Archdiocese of New Orleans for sex discrimination without justifiable cause. As the trial unfolds an extremist concocts a plot to stop the heresy against the church. Tommy’s faith and convictions are tested, and as he’s challenged to question his purpose, he begins the transformation from a sexist, arrogant person to one who is committed to a mission larger than his own self-interests.



Sulphur for Leviathan - Poster and Trailer


Sulphur for Leviathan is an upcoming arthouse horror short and marks one of Sodom & Chimera Productions’ most radical and controversial films so far. The film is very conceptual, and was shot on Super 8 and 16mm, also making use of the dead format that is 9,5mm.

The story of Sulphur for Leviathan revolves around a nun, who suddenly finds herself progressively fantasizing about things that shouldn’t be in her head, increasingly having to face her own doings of blasphemy, all leading up to something demonically dark and sinister. Portrayed in a surreal manner both in color and black and white, with a heavy focus on elegant cinematography, the film tells a satanic tale of unfulfilled desires, lust, blasphemy and existential dread, packed in a controversial and disturbing, but calm and poetic experience that is heavily inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky, with a touch of satanism.

Written & directed by James Quinn.

Starring Susan M. Martin (Plank Face), Jerry Larew (She Was So Pretty 1 & 2) and Craig Long in the lead roles.

The Greatest Train Thrillers


Trains have always been a great setting for movies; the excitement of the journey, the thrill of the speed, the mystery of the strangers filling a carriage. All these elements and more are why filmmakers choose to use the mode of transport as a great setting for their story to play out.

To celebrate the release of upcoming thriller THE COMMUTER, starring Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Sam Neill, in cinemas January 19, we collated a list of the greatest train thrillers ever to hit the big screen.


Murder On The Orient Express (1974)
Infamous detective Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) is tasked with solving the murder of a passenger on the luxurious Orient Express whilst travelling back to London. With twelve suspects in the carriage, all seemingly unconnected to the victim, the sleuth must interrogate and consider every possibility to solve one of his most challenging and enthralling cases.

Unstoppable (2010)
When train conductor Will (Chris Pine) is partnered with veteran engineer Frank (Denzel Washington), the pair clash over old and new ideals of the job. However when a company exec informs them that a train nearby carrying toxic chemicals is running unmanned, they must join together to stop it before it crashes in a populated area, endangering thousands of lives.

The Taking Of Pelham 123 (1974)
New York is brought to a standstill when four men take passengers on a subway carriage hostage. Demanding $1 million from the mayor, the group state that they will kill a passenger every minute that the money is late. Wisecracking transit policeman Zach Garber (Walter Matthau) unwittingly becomes the communicator between the hijackers & the authorities and must try to stop the situation before anyone is killed, but a question keeps nagging at everyone involved – if the ransom is paid, how can the men possibly escape the subway tunnel?

Source Code (2011)
A soldier (Jake Gyllenhaal) finds out that he is part of an experimental government programme when he wakes up in someone else’s body on a train heading into Chicago, only 8 minutes later a bomb goes off killing everyone on board. He discovers that his mission is to work out the identity of the bombers, as the same 8 minutes are reset over and over again. As he attempts to solve the mystery, he begins to wonder why he was selected for the task and whether he can make a difference to the fate of the passengers.

Strangers On A Train (1951)
When two men meet by chance travelling to New York, they discuss their problems and come up with the perfect murder – that the strangers each kill off the other’s ‘problem’ so there are no ties to the murders. However whilst one of the men believes that this was a discussion in jest, the other goes ahead with the plan and begins pressuring his partner in crime to complete his side of the bargain too.

The Commuter (2018)
A woman (Vera Farmiga) sits down one day next to Michael (Liam Neeson), an ordinary commuter on his way home as usual, and gives him a seemingly simple task – find someone on board that doesn’t belong. The offer of money to complete this task is alluring and he agrees, but Michael soon discovers that he is now at the central of a criminal conspiracy where lives are on the line.

THE COMMUTER COMES TO CINEMAS JANUARY 19

Dance Baby Dance - Trailer and Poster



His Dream Was to Tap.

This January experience the joy and spectacle as writer-director Stephen Kogon dances towards his dream.

Beverley Mitchell (“Seventh Heaven”), Jim O’Heir (“Parks and Recreation”), Carlos Alazraqui (Despicable Me 3) and Stephen Kogon star in the first feel-good film of 2018, DANCE BABY DANCE, in theaters and available on Amazon from 1/19 via Indie Rights.

Have you ever had a dream? JIMMY PERCER did. His was to be a professional tap dancer. And in his early 20s, he was on his way … until a horrible knee injury stopped him in his tracks. He rehabbed like crazy to get back to where he had a chance again … only to re-injure the knee. The dream never died, but life happened. He met a pretty girl (TESS), they got married, he got a job and the years went by.

Now in his mid-30s, and still happily married, he sees one last chance to still go for his dream. A showcase for a touring dance show is coming to his town. To be chosen in this showcase means being a part of the touring show for a whole year. He’ll have to compete against younger and better dancers to be chosen. And to make it even harder, his surgically repaired knee never recovered 100%, making it difficult to do moves that once came so easily. But no one wants it more, and no one will work harder.

As that’s going on, Tess’ sister LANIE and her 9-year-old daughter KIT come live with them. Kit is upset about her mom and dad splitting up, and won’t talk to anyone. However, she loves to dance, and sneaks off one day to watch Jimmy practice. They end up doing a little tap dance routine together and as they bond, she starts coming out of her shell, and in turn she starts gaining self-esteem.

As the day of the showcase nears, the obstacles keep mounting for Jimmy. His knee starts feeling sore, a new amazing tap dancer enters the competition, and Tess and Jimmy’s financial situation worsens. Due to all this, Jimmy’s confidence starts to fade – until Kit returns the favor and helps get Jimmy back on track.

When the big day of the showcase arrives, it becomes all that much clearer how brilliant the competition is. Even those who believe in Jimmy the most, know the odds are great.

And now it’s his turn to dance. Will he be able to rise above all the competition, and his own shortcomings, to dance the performance of his life? If so, then his lifelong dream will be realized.

DANCE BABY DANCE premieres at the Arena Cinelounge, Hollywood on January 19  - followed by a week long run - as well as releases on digital at Amazon.

BOMBSHELL: The Hedy Lamarr Story will open in cinemas nationwide on 9 March 2018


Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr (Ziegfeld Girl, Samson and Delilah) was known as ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’ with Snow White and Catwoman both based on her iconic look. She was as famous for her performances as she was infamous for her multiple marriages and affairs with the likes of Spencer Tracy and JFK. But there was another, much more interesting, side to Hedy Lamarr.

BOMBSHELL: THE STORY OF HEDY LAMARR discovers the real woman, not only as an actress but giving her the credit she deserves as an ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped revolutionise modern communication. It was only towards the end of her life that tech pioneers discovered her concept of frequency hopping, which is now used as the basis for secure WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth.

In 2016, director Alexandra Dean and producer Adam Haggiag unearthed four never-before-heard audio tapes of Hedy speaking on the record about her incredible life. The film finally gives Hedy Lamarr the chance to tell her own story in her own words. The documentary is also narrated by Hedy’s family, closest friends and admirers including Diane Kruger, Mel Brooks and Robert Osborne. The film was produced by Academy Award® winning Susan Sarandon as well as Michael Kantor and Regina Scully.
