20th June 2014

A number of new releases are out this week, it's almost as if the studios predicted that most British people would loose interest in the Wold Cup by this point!

Leading the way is The Fault in Our Stars a romantic comedy/tragedy where the romance can only have one inevitable end.

The film didn't do as well as expected in the US, which could have an impact here, but in the UK there has been a heavy media buzz and positive reviews which could see this take over at the top this weekend, I expect a number 1 debut.

Based on the Stage show of the same name, Clint Eastwood directs the screen version of Jersey Boys, the story of how the The Four Seasons came together.

A massive hit on the stage but can it translate to the screen? Reviews have been mixed but with Eastwood at the helm this could have a top 3 entry easily.

Kevin Costner returns after his successful turn as Superman's dad in this action drama 3 Days to Kill. A Dying CIA agent is given a miracle drug in exchange for one last assignment, This might well go top 5 on it's debut.

30th May 2014

New at your local cinema this week is Angelina Jolie in Maleficent, Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and Seth McFarlane in A Million Ways Tt Die in the West.

released on Wednesday to give it a bit of a head start Maleficent from Disney has Miss Jolie as the Sleeping Beauty bad witch showing she's not as bad as you think she may have been.

Plenty of hype for this film and it will have a fight with Tom Cruise for the top, we could see a good £6 million opening.

Tom Cruise flexes his sci-fi muscle in Edge of Tomorrow, based on the Japanese novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka the plot is a sort of cross between Groundhog day and the video game Halo.

Also starring Emily Blunt both are box office big hitters and this could beat Angelina to the top, but it will be tight and a £6 million or so opening could also be on the cards.

Family Guy and American Dad creator Seth McFarlane brings us his follow up to the hit Ted. A harder sell this time in the guise of A million Ways to Die in the West, a western in the Blazing Saddles stable of slapstick.

McFarlane has a big following so this could get a decent 3 or 4 million pound opening and a top 5 entry definitely and maybe come in right behind the two bigger films of the week.

Other new films out this week are
Heaven is for Real
Venus in Fur.

7th February 2013

With the announcement that Disney would release films within the Star Wars Universe based around specific characters, 25thframe.co.uk has asked which loved characters would make the best films? Here are some ideas, but let me know which characters youd like to see in their own film.

The initial news was that the first film would be based on Yoda. One option for a film would be around his time on Dagoba between Episode III and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, but he spent many years alone here so not sure how much excitement there is there! More interesting would be a movie based nearly 900 years into the Star Wars past explaining where Yoda came from, and maybe how he became the Jedi Master.

The latest news suggest that the first film will be based on Han Solo, another fan favourite, and one were all keen to see, How did Han meet Chewbacca, we think it was some time after Episode III, but clearly before Star Wars. When did he get the Millennium Falcon, this would have to include Lando Calrissian as the Falcon once belonged to him, and when did Solo do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs?

Bobba Fett is another character that fans simply want to know more about, we know so little, he has very brief appearances in Empire and Jedi, the film in which he is killed, despite which he became one of the most popular characters, but is a major character in Episode II. We see him as a child and see his dad get killed by the Jedi's, we also know that the Clone Troopers/Storm Troopers are him.

Biggs Darklighter would make an interesting charter to base a film on, he appears on Star Wars and is killed during the batttle, and he appears on one of the more famous cut scenes from that film. There is a whole life on Tattooine to explore, and of course a very close friendship with Luke Sykwalker.

In Star Wars we see Darth Vadar's boss (of sorts) on the Death Star as Grand Moff Tarkin, he must have an interesting back story, what made him so evil, how did he get to commmand the Death Star and the Imperial Outland Regions? We know when he died what what are this vaguely Hitler like characters origins?

The back story of Jabba the Hutt has also been touted as future film, he's a resident of Tatooine and is over 800 years old, he runs a crime organisation that hires bounty hunters and is clearly rich and buys respect. A Godfather type story could be a must for this.

Admiral Ackbar has despite only a brief appearence in Return of the Jedi become a very popular character, he has appeared in The Clone Wars cartoon which has given some insight to his character, but going through his academy days would be an interesting film.
