  Reeves believes
  In John Wick, he came back to seek revenge. In John Wick: Chapter 2, he was forced to repay a debt. And now, after grossing a combined total of nearly $300 million at the worldwide box office, The Boogeyman returns for JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 - PARABELLUM.

In this third instalment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin's guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world's most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.

Returning to the John Wick universe are Keanu Reeves (The Matrix Trilogy, Speed) as the eponymous John Wick; Laurence Fishburne (Boyz n the Hood, The Matrix Trilogy); Lance Reddick (White House Down, American Horror Story); Tobias Segal (Sneaky Pete, Mindhunter) and Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods). They will be starring alongside new cast members Halle Berry (Monster's Ball, The X-Men franchise); Mark Dacascos (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Only the Strong); Asia Kate Dillon (Orange Is the New Black, Billions); Jason Mantzoukas (The Dictator, The Lego Batman Movie); and Angelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Addams Family).

  Alita: Battle Angel [read more]
  What big eyes you have
  From visionary filmmakers James Cameron (AVATAR) and Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY), comes ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo (Keean Johnson) offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past - she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she's grown to love.

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL is coming to UK cinemas February 6th. A new discussion video between James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez about the film's journey to release is at the link above.

  Jarman Volume 2 on Blu-ray [read more]
  It's no cliche to say an artist lives on through their work
  19 February 2019 will mark 25 years since Derek Jarman's untimely death at just 52, but the legacy of this iconoclastic filmmaker lives on. The BFI's second Limited Edition Blu-ray collection, a lavishly packaged 6-disc box set, brings together Jarman's last six features, made in the prolonged burst of creativity and political activism that followed his HIV diagnosis in 1987.

All the films are presented in High Definition for the first time in the UK and range from the audacious anger of The Last of England (1987) to the astonishing experimentation of Blue (1993).

Also included is Jarman's posthumously-released elegy to Super 8, Glitterbug (1994), along with an incredible 66 special features - both new and archival, plus trailers, image galleries of rare stills and promotional materials and a 100-page perfect bound book of essays, film credits and more. The 6-disc Limited Edition Blu-ray box set will be released on 25 February 2019.

  Sink the Bismarck! on Blu-ray [read more]
  Quite a game of Battleships
  Eureka Entertainment is to release SINK THE BISMARCK!, the authentic action thriller depicting one of World War II's most famous sea battles, presented for the first time ever on Blu-ray in the UK as part of the Eureka Classics range from 11 March 2019.

One of the finest British war films ever made, Sink the Bismarck! tells the true story of one of World War II's most notorious sea battles.

In the Spring of 1941, Nazi Germany's greatest battleship - the Bismarck, scourge of Atlantic shipping, is pinned down at her anchorage in Norway. Making a break for freedom and the safety of air cover from the Luftwaffe, the great ship is chased by the Royal Navy, led by the Admiralty's Chief of Operations, Captain Jonathan Shepard (Kenneth More), and WRNS Second Officer Anne Davis (Dana Wynter).

Directed by the late Lewis Gilbert (Alfie, The Spy Who Loved Me), Sink the Bismarck! received acclaim for its authenticity and nail-biting combat sequences.
