Top Gun: Maverick and other delayed sequels we’re looking forward to

Watching Tom Cruise as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell recklessly yet gracefully maneuvering a jet through the air at incredibly high speeds never gets dull. But the original Top Gun is just 110 minutes long, and has become so iconic that many film lovers can probably recite the entire script from memory. They’ll have a whole new script to memorise soon, though, as the long-awaited sequel Top Gun: Maverick swoops into Regent Street Cinema on 25 May.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: Around The World In Creature Features

It’s time to go back to the Wizarding World. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore is almost upon us! In this new sequel, Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander, of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, has been given a mission that’ll take him around the world… and that got us thinking about all the other films about fantastic beasts and, well, where to find them. Grab a map, we’re going monster hunting – via some of our favourite creature features.

The Dark Knights: Batman on the big screen

By design, Batman is one of the darkest superheroes. His whole schtick is dressing up as a icon of fear, to scare his enemies. Unlike Superman, who’s powered by the sun and strikes a reassuring figure, Batman is a creature of the night. There’s some complicated psychology there, which offsets the inherent silliness of the hallmarks the character comes with: the bat eared cowl, the gruff voice, the eyeliner… So what’s it like stepping into the Caped Crusader’s, well, cape? We’ve dug through the archives to see how the different actors who played Batman approached the role when it was their turn:

Rounding up the suspects: our favourite Agatha Christie adaptations

Think of a murder mystery trope and chances are, Agatha Christie invented it. Her novels are full of amateur detectives, big country houses, and elaborately plotted twist endings. There’s a reason she’s one of the world’s best-selling authors – her mysteries are so well constructed that trying to solve them along with her sleuths is addictive. With Kenneth Branagh’s Death On The Nile hitting cinemas this week, what better time could there be to revisit some classic Christie adaptations? These are our favourites.

The Art of Cinema Projection

What comes to mind when you hear the word “projectionist”? Do you see a scene from Cinema Paradiso playing in your head, with little Salvatore sitting alongside Alfredo and watching, wide-eyed, as the film unspools? Whatever comes to mind, it’s likely to involve someone sitting in the dark, hunched over a film projector, 35mm film ticking steadily from one reel to another. But in the era of digital projection, the reality isn’t quite like that.

How much to hire a whole cinema

Where you watch the film has a huge impact on how powerful the experience is – surround sound and state of the art facilities, not to mention the big screen itself, transform the cinematic journey. But just how much is it to hire a whole cinema? You may find the business benefits of a private cinema outweigh the cost.

From stage to screen – 10 of our favourite films featuring pop stars

Have you seen the trailer for House Of Gucci? We’re willing to bet you have, and that you might even have watched it more than once. It’s set to be the must-see, must-talk-about film of November (and probably December, too). And that’s due, in no small part, to its star: Lady Gaga. Gaga’s transition from pop star to film star has been pretty spectacular. But maybe no-one should have been surprised. After all, pop stars are performers, accustomed to putting on a costume and transforming into another person. In honour of Gaga and House Of Gucci, here are 10 of our other favourite films featuring pop stars:

Why you should see… Nomadland

Chloe Zhao’s NOMADLAND is a serious achievement. It won Best Picture at the Oscars this year, as well as Best Actress for lead Frances McDormand and Best Director for Zhao. It was also awarded the BAFTA for Best Film, plus an entire trophy cupboard’s worth of other accolades – so many, in fact, that an entire standalone Wikipedia page had to be created for the “List of accolades received by Nomadland”. It’s safe to say, then, that the film is well regarded by critics.

Candyman - Say His Name: what we talk about when we talk about horror

In Nia DaCosta’s Candyman, Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighbourhood is haunted. There are so many ghost stories associated with the place, in fact, that you might wonder why anyone bothered to build new developments there instead of just burning it all down, salting the earth, and getting as far away as possible.

James Bond: the evolution of the world’s most famous spy

The world’s most famous secret agent is finally returning to our screens! In honour of the release, we thought we’d take a look back at the story so far. Who is James Bond? The international super spy has been portrayed by lots of different actors, all of whom had a slightly different take on him, according to their own personalities and to the desires of the audiences of the day. After all, 1962 was almost 60 years ago, and a lot has changed since then. So who is Bond? We dug into the archives to find out what each of those actors thought…

10 Reasons to Come Back to the Cinema

We’ve really missed being able to go to the cinema, and we know you have too. It’s not just a feeling – there’s cold, hard research out there that shows going to the cinema is the second most-missed activity we’ve all been denied over the past year or so. For teenagers and parents, it’s actually the thing they miss the most, ahead of going shopping, going to restaurants, or going to the pub.
