Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Thu, 22/04/2010 - 15:48

It's difficult to bottle the essence of one of the world's most famous cities and do it justice in just an hour (including ad breaks) but Griff Rhys Jones seems to manage to capture what it is that makes Rome tick. His new travelogue series Greatest Cities of the World sees him spending 24 hours in the Italian capital away from the obvious tourist rat runs. It's a refreshing glimpse into the life of this bustling city that few holidaymakers get to see. From finding out how the mayor is protected from would-be assassination to archaeological difficulties of trying to extend the overloaded Metro, this is a sketch of Roman life beyond the Coliseum and Trevi fountain. ITV1, 9pm.

Armchair Viewing: LA Story (1991)

Posted by Neil Davey | Thu, 22/04/2010 - 13:29

"You think with a financial statement like this you can have the duck?"

What's it about?
A LA based weatherman, Harris Telemacher (Steve Martin) is bored of... everything. He's bored with life, he's bored with his friends, he's bored with LA, he's bored with the LA weather which never varies: hell, he could even pre-record the weather bulletin (and does). He needs a change and along comes a lovely British reporter Sara (Victoria Tennant, Martin's real life other half at the time) to shake things up. Harris' attempts at finding happiness find an unlikely ally in the city itself, as represented by helpful freeway sign. Sing Doo Wah Diddy indeed...

Miley Cyrus thanks fans for their support at The Last Song premiere

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 21/04/2010 - 13:51

As we finally see the flight restrictions over Europe steadily lifted, the volcanic ash cloud that's been hanging overhead for the last week has done a lot of damage to people's travel plans – many are stranded in foreign countries, and then there's Hollywood.

First, the world premiere of Jon Favreau's bullseye blockbuster Iron Man 2 is moved from London to the film's native Los Angeles, and then the premiere of romantic drama The Last Song couldn't even have its director and young starlet in attendance. The event was held last night in London and no doubt hundreds upon hundreds of screaming Miley Cyrus fans were left disappointed when it was confirmed that both she and Julie Anne Robinson, couldn't make it due entirely to the ash cloud. Miley did however record a special video shown to fans thanking them for their undying support, which you can see right here.

SYNOPSIS: Based on best-selling novelist Nicholas Spark's (A Walk to Remember, The Notebook) latest novel, The Last Song is set in a small southern beach town where an estranged father (Greg Kinnear) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant daughter (Cyrus), who would rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common – music – in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances.

The Last Song echoes into cinemas in the UK and Ireland on April 30

Two new posters for Hot Tub Time Machine

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 21/04/2010 - 13:26

Steve Pink, director of 2006's comedy Accepted, returns to the big screen with 99 minutes of funnies in May, with the rather bizarre-titled Hot Tub Time Machine. A quite literal throwback to the 1980s, Hot Tub Time Machine sounds like a movie that would fall flat on its face, but looks can indeed be deceiving, as the film has actually been a surprising hit in the States, garnering very favourable reviews indeed. So, with a cast that includes Crispin Glover, Chevy Chase and a seemingly 2012-recovered John Cusack, how will the UK and Ireland react to the bubbly time travel device? Check out the new one-sheet and quad posters below to see if it tickles your fancy.

Third trailer released for action-comedy Knight and Day

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 21/04/2010 - 11:11

With the summer fast approaching and the biggest films of the year on the horizon, we at Screenjabber have been providing you with the latest information and trailers on the surefire blockbusters of the near future, which is exactly why we've got the spicy little third trailer to bring you today for Knight and Day, a sexy action-packed comedy directed by James Mangold, and starring Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Saarsgard and Lost's Maggie Grace.

The Hollywood superstars Cruise and Diaz worked with Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line) in various dazzling locations around the world, including Austria, Spain and Jamaica, to really give this high-octane movie, released by 20th Century Fox, a real sense of adventure.

SYNOPSIS: During their glamorous globetrotting and sometimes deadly adventure, nothing and no one—even the now fugitive couple—are not what they seem. Amid shifting alliances and unexpected betrayals, they race across the world with their survival ultimately hinging on the battle of truth vs. trust.

A similar sounding buddy comedy released this year is Killers, out on June 16, starring Ashton Kutcher as a secret agent who settles down for the perfect marriage with Katherine Heigl, only for a target to be put on his head the day after his 30th birthday.

Knight and Day escapes into cinemas in the UK and Ireland on July 14

Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 21/04/2010 - 08:24

Watching Jamie Oliver race through the back alleys of Marrakech in search of fresh bread last Wednesday made for a thrilling travelogue. Sights and sounds leapt off the small screen and you could practically smell his mechoui lamb roasting on his balcony, too. Tonight, the gobby chef, who seems to have swapped swearing for "Lordy!", is off to Spain in Jamie Does... Andalusia (C4, 9pm). Andalusian food is the essence of Spain for me - this region is the home of sherry and tapas and gazpacho, and those are literally just for starters. It's physically beautiful too, so expect cinematography to match last week's plus mouthwatering recipes and cooking tips. Salud!

Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Tue, 20/04/2010 - 08:03

I retched on first hearing of Heston Blumenthal's snail porridge and Heston's Titanic Feast serves up a number of equally bizarre gastronomic concoctions. The molecular chef here does his own version of the last dinner served on the famous liner and you'd be forgiven for wondering if he'd dropped a tab or two of acid beforehand. The dishes all have daft names, like Scott of the Antarctic Roll, and some ingredient combinations that border on the disgusting. His celebrity guests seem to enjoy it though and it's certainly a cookery programme cum history lesson with a difference. Me? I'll be sticking to beans on toast. Tune in on C4 at 9pm.
