MARVEL’S ANT-MAN IS RELEASED IN UK CINEMAS FROM 17TH JULY 2015
EXPERIENCE IT IN IMAX® 3D
I think I’ve mentioned before on the site and podcasts how i’ve never been totally sold on Fox’s new take on the Fantastic Four. It all seemed to serious and hard edged, so it’s nice to see a little bit of humour creeping into this trailer. I also heard an interview with Director Josh Trank about his take on the film, and he’s starting to convince me it could be much better than i first thought… Only a few more weeks to wait to find out!
FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centres on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
FANTASTIC FOUR lands in UK cinemas – 6th AUGUST 2015
After a weekend of leaks from Comic Con, WB have relented and released the full HD quality version of that Suicide Squad trailer that has been doing the rounds on the internets in shaky cam style.
Sue Kroll, the studio’s president of Worldwide Marketing explained the decision – “Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”
Essentially Kroll has just learnt you can’t remove things from the internet… If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. 😉

SUICIDE SQUAD IS RELEASED IN UK CINEMAS AUGUST 2016
I know a lot of you will have seen this by now as it went up online last night, but it’s so cool I felt it still needed to be posted. The new trailer for BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has arrived.
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
In this trailer we see more of the plot, and our first proper look at Lex Luthor, Alfred, and some kick ass action of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. 25th March 2016 can’t come soon enough!

In the annals of horror, only one film series is almost too disgusting to describe! Now the unthinkable has become all too real! The final chapter to the most notorious movie franchise ever made has arrived – The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence).
Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), has a lot of problems; his prison statistically has the highest amount of prison riots, medical costs and staff turnover in the country. But foremost he is unable to get the respect he thinks he deserves from his inmates and the state Governor (Eric Roberts). He constantly fails in experimenting with different ideas for the ideal punishment to get the inmates in line, which drives him, together with the sizzling heat, completely insane.
Under threat of termination by the Governor, his loyal right hand man Dwight (Laurence R Harvey) comes up with a brilliant idea – a revolutionary idea which could change the American prison system for good and save billions of dollars. An idea based on the notorious Human Centipede movies that will literally and figuratively get the inmates on their knees, creating the ultimate punishment and deterrent for anyone considering a life of crime. Having nothing to lose, Bill and Dwight create a jaw-dropping 500-person prison centipede.
Re-uniting the stars of the first two films (Dieter Laser & Laurence R. Harvey), The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) is the finale the world’s sickest horror franchise deserves. Nasty, revolting, and utterly deplorable, if you thought the first two films were gross, trust us, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Warning – the following article contains a series of ant based puns…
In an important world first, Empire Cinemas threw the first ever film premiere for ants with a screening of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man for the leafcutter ants at London Zoo. Bringing the antics to the eusocial insects they took a miniature screen, two speakers, eight seats, branding board, red carpet and popcorn to London Zoo’s leaf-cutter exhibition, and transformed into a small-scale cinema for this fantastic unique event.
The leafcutter ants, which can grow up to 1cm in size in their lifetime, attended the film in true premiere style and posed with their leaves for photos in front of the brilliant Empire Cinemas miniature branding board and red carpet. The hard-working insects then proceeded to crawl over the seats, popcorn holders and even the screen before the film began. No ants were harmed at the premiere.
Ant-Man, with its stellar cast including Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Judy Greer, tells the story of a con man with the ability to shrink in size but grow in strength, who must help his mentor protect the secret of his Ant-Man suit and pull off a heist that will save the world. The film, which screens in Empire Cinemas from July 17th (available in IMAX 3D format in Birmingham and Basildon), was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Disney.
I’d like to formally apologise for the upcoming puns by ZSL London Zoo’s Head of BUGS, Dave Clarke… “The leafcutter ants here at ZSL London Zoo, of which the soldiers can grow up to 1cm in length, use their amazing strength to transport cut pieces of leaf and flowers to turn it into mulch for their nests. Their behaviour is exactly the same as in the wild where their custom-built exhibit features a rope course to take them from station to station, but the ants also got to explore a new habitat in the form of the miniature cinema. They told us they are hoping the film is brilli-ant, and not an ant-i climax….”
Ant-Man will screen at Empire Cinemas from July 17th – www.empirecinemas.co.uk or call 08714 714 714.
