Paddington Teaser Trailer Arrives

The big screen version of Paddington Bear is due to arrive at the end of this year and I’m both excited and terrified. For me Paddington is the best of bears. I never loved Winnie the Pooh and Rupert and his dreadful wardrobe held little interest for me as a child, but the tales of Paddington were mesmerising…

The Book Thief Trailer

The first trailer for the film adaptation of Markus Zusak’s brilliant The Book Thief has been released. As my review explains, I love The Book Thief. It is one of the few books released in the past decade that I would call a true classic and I’m evangelical about getting as many people to read it as possible…


The teaser trailer for Muppets Most Wanted has been released and much to my delight it’s very Animal-heavy. No hint of a plot other than the fact it’s a road movie of some sort but that doesn’t matter. It’s the Muppets back on our screens….

The World’s End Trailer released

It’s been a great couple of weeks for movie trailers. Literally the day after I posted my Top Ten Tantalising Trailers article the White House Down trailer arrived and it promises some great action with a sense of humour. It looks more likeable than Olympus has Fallen and exactly like the Die Hard in the White House it will clearly be known as. Today’s release of The World’s End trailer has really excited me…

Top Ten: Tantalising 2013 Trailers

2013 is looking like a decent year for cinema. The beginning of the year saw some great films released – Les Miserables, Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln are among my favourites and the summer blockbuster season has already had a decent start…

Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Trailer

A teaser trailer has arrived for next year’s Star Trek sequel and it’s left me feeling a bit, well, underwhelmed. I’m not a big Star Trek fan although I did love J.J. Abrams 2009 reboot and I am a little bit in love with Karl Urban’s uber grumpy Bones…

World War Z Trailer

The trailer for Brad Pitt’s zombie apocalypse movie World War Z has now arrived and it looks good. Not just because of Mr Pit, or the fast zombies or the billions dead but because Glasgow looks fab. Much of the filming for this movie was done in my home city, right next to my dad’s office…

Full Skyfall Trailer

Wow. Wow wow wow WOW. A full trailer for new James Bond film Skyfall has been released and I’m absolutely blown away. There’s more action including a fight sequence on top of a moving train, the apparent death of Bond (although he’s got more lives than the luckiest cat in the world), an explosion at the MI6 building on the banks of the Thames….

Home or Cinema? Where’s best?

I can’t count the number of movies I’ve been desperate to see but not gone to the cinema when they are released. I was overjoyed at the thought of a new Muppets movie but only saw it on a flight two months after it was released. I never made it to Contagion despite it being […]

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer

I’m going to have to revisit both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, I enjoyed both but neither excited me particularly. They were a little serious for me. I like my superheroes to be a bit more amusing….
