Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Mon, 12/04/2010 - 11:53

Two of this evening's better viewing options are on C4. The fascination of grubbing in fields with a metal detector does occasionally pay off, as Terry Herbert discovered last year. Saxon Gold: Finding the Hoard (9pm) looks at how Terry's unearthing of 200 ancient coins changed his life forever when he claimed Treasure Trove and made his fortune. Cash aside, it's another exciting glimpse into our collective past when the land gives up its secrets.

New trailer for action-comedy Killers

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Mon, 12/04/2010 - 11:07

The new trailer is here for Robert Luketic's Killers, an action-comedy with a romantic twist from Lionsgate that stars Ashton Kutcher, Katherine Heigl and Tom Selleck in a moustache. The director of Legally Blonde, Monster-in-Law and 21 looks to bring plenty of pink-loaded thrills, spills and kisses to the screen as he dabbles in what is certainly familiar generic territory to him. 

SYNOPSIS: Spencer Aimes (Kutcher) is just your average undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt (Heigl), a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love... and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss.

Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage — that is until the morning after Spencer's 30th birthday. That's when Spencer and Jen learn he's the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbours, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage, manage his pain-in-the-ass in-laws, keep up neighbourly appearances... and just plain survive. 

Killers dives into cinemas in the UK and Ireland on June 16th

Trailer for Tai Chi Master on DVD

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Fri, 09/04/2010 - 16:23

On April 26th, Cine Asia releases martial arts movie Tai Chi Master on DVD in the UK. Considered a true classic in the genre, the film stars the legendary Jet Li (Fearless, The Forbidden Kingdom) and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), with out-of-this-world action direction by the masterful Yuen Woo-ping (The Matrix Trilogy). Expect plenty of high-octane ass-kickery if you haven't seen it before!

SYNOPSIS: Two orphans are raised in the legendary Shaolin Temple and grow up to become the greatest fighters of their generation. As a barbaric regime tightens its grip on the empire, each will choose a different path. One, played by Jet Li, will fight for the freedom of his people; the other, played by Chin Siu-ho (Fist of Legend), will exercise ruthless ambition on his barbaric rise to power. When a fearless female freedom-fighter (Yeoh) is captured and condemned to death, the two men will meet on the battlefield for one last life-or-death confrontation.

Showcasing his trademark speed, agility and explosive power, Jet Li is a true force of nature in this matchless movie event that delivers scene after scene of truly spectacular martial arts combat.

TRAILER: Sex & The City 2

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Fri, 09/04/2010 - 15:12

The first Sex & The City film was a bit like four or five eisodes of the (admittedly very good) television series strung together and thrown up onto the big screen. So will the sequel be any better? We don't know, but while we wait to find out (the film is out in the US on May 27 and the UK on May 28) here's a new trailer to while away the time between shoe-shopping excursions ...

New Toy Story 3 clip: Meet Ken!

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Fri, 09/04/2010 - 11:08

Disney-Pixar's long-awaited Toy Story 3 enters cinemas this summer, and to further build the colossal anticipation for the film, we've got a brand new clip featuring two of the most iconic couples in the public eye that the world has ever known — Barbie and Ken!

Who honestly isn't looking forward to Toy Story 3? It's been over a decade since Toy Story 2 graced the silver screen with its fun animated silliness, and now we are just a mere few months away from what will hopefully be yet another colourfully enjoyable movie experience.

SYNOPSIS: The creators of the beloved Toy Story film re-open the toy box and bring moviegoers back to the delightful world of Woody, Buzz and our favourite gang of characters in Toy Story 3. Woody and Buzz had accepted that their owner Andy would grow up someday, but what happens when that day arrives? In the third installment, Andy is preparing to depart for college, leaving his loyal toys troubled about their uncertain future. Lee Unkrich (co-director of Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo) directs this highly-anticipated film, and Michael Arndt, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Little Miss Sunshine, brings his unique talents and comedic sensibilities to the proceedings. Toy Story 3 will be presented in Disney Digital 3D in select cinemas.

Toy Story 3 marches into cinemas in the UK and Ireland on July 23rd

Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Fri, 09/04/2010 - 08:52

Fire up the Quattro because there's only one programme you really don't want to miss tonight. We're into season 3 of Ashes to Ashes (BBC1, 9pm) - what were they thinking putting the opener on at Easter when many people would have missed it? Never mind, episode 2 has all the hallmarks of a cross between Z-cars and Jonathan Creek, as Alex goes undercover at a dating agency to investigate a serial killer who's despatching lonely hearts in a rather gruesome manner. Plus a little more is revealed about what really happened to Sam Tyler...

Armchair Viewing: The Bourne Identity (2002)

Posted by Justin Bateman | Fri, 09/04/2010 - 06:35

"I can tell you the license plate numbers of all six cars outside. I can tell you that our waitress is left-handed and the guy sitting up at the counter weighs two hundred fifteen pounds and knows how to handle himself. I know the best place to look for a gun is the cab of the gray truck outside, and at this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am?"

WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

When Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is hooked out of the ocean by some Mediterranean fishermen with two bullet wounds in his back, neither he nor they know who he is or what has happened thanks to a form of amnesia. With the scant information he does have, Bourne travels to Zurich to piece together the details of his existence and discover why someone wants him dead.

PRESS CONFERENCE: Dear John

Posted by Justin Bateman | Fri, 09/04/2010 - 06:27

Directed by Swedish veteran Lasse Hallström, Dear John is a modern day weepie, a throwback to the wartime classics where soldiers go off to war leaving their sweetheart behind. In this film the setting is contemporary but the love letters the two exchange hark back to a bygone era.

The eponymous John, played by Channing Tatum, meets and falls in love with Savannah (Amanda Seyfried) while on leave and then has to return to his job in the Special Forces overseas. Would true love overcome the miles between them?
