  Can't kid a kidder
  Following a long tradition of cocky teenage boys with too much time on their hands, Brady, Sam and Mosley like to amuse themselves by making prank calls. However, their cellular diversions are intensified by the extreme nature of the pranks they put their unsuspecting victims through, and the delight and encouragement they receive when they post videos of their hijinks online for maximum humiliation. Having pushed the wrong person too far, they find themselves on the other side of a call, and an evening intended for normal high school revelry turns increasingly bloody as their unknown assailant ramps up a prank of his own.

Written by Joe Johnson | Directed by Damien Macé and Alexis Wajsbrot | Starring Gregg Sulkin (Pretty Little Liars, Faking It, Anti-Social), Garrett Clayton (King Cobra, Teen Beach Movie), Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil: Retribution, Love Actually) and Bella Dayne (Humans, Plebs). The trailer is at the link above.

  Battle of the Sexes [read more]
  Anyone for tennis?
  In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles.

The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms and boardrooms that continue to reverberate today.

BATTLE OF THE SEXES is released in UK cinemas October 20th 2017. Try the trailer above.

  Frantz on Blu-ray and DVD
  That Ozon touch
  One of world cinema's most prolific auteurs, François Ozon (Swimming Pool, In the House) returns with the moving and poetic period drama Frantz, an elegant reimagining of the story behind Ernst Lubitsch's undersung 1932 drama Broken Lullaby. In a small German town in 1919, Anna mourns every day at the grave of her fiancé, Frantz, who was killed in battle during World War I. One day she spies a mysterious young Frenchman, Adrien, also laying flowers at the grave. Together they begin to bond over their shared grief, though Anna is intrigued by the enigmatic nature of Adrien's relationship with her fiancé. As the pair become increasingly close, long buried secrets are revealed that will change the fabric of their lives and take them across a wearied and battle-scarred Europe.

Shot with stunning black-and-white photography, Frantz is a masterfully told story of romance, grief and guilt featuring two remarkable lead performances from newcomers Paula Beer and Pierre Niney. At once graceful and and gripping, it is an intimate and timely exploration of healing and forgiveness across European borders.

ON DVD & BLU-RAY 10th JULY.
