  Ripping yarns
  From New Line Cinema comes the explosive new cinematic adventure "Mortal Kombat," inspired by the blockbuster video game franchise, which most recently enjoyed the most successful video game launch in its history, Mortal Kombat 11. The film is helmed by award-winning Australian commercial filmmaker Simon McQuoid, marking his feature directorial debut, and produced by James Wan ("The Conjuring" universe films, "Aquaman,"), Todd Garner ("Into the Storm," "Tag"), McQuoid and E. Bennett Walsh ("Men in Black: International," "The Amazing Spider-Man 2").

In "Mortal Kombat," MMA fighter Cole Young, is unaware of his heritage - or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana - the immense power from within his soul - in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all? Watch now - rent at the link above.

  Wavelength Media's Drive-In Summer Cinema Series 2020 [read more]
  Surf's really up
  Following the mammoth success of Wavelength Media’s Drive-In Summer Cinema Series during 2020, the team is delighted to announce the event series is surfing back into Cornwall, bigger and better for 2021. Bringing an epic schedule of family-friendly flicks, cult cinema classics and gnar-shredding surf movies, this year will feature additional afternoon screenings on bigger LED screens as well as an exclusive Surf Film Festival, celebrating current and classic surf cinema.

Quoted by Time Out Magazine as 'the most beautiful outdoor cinema', listed by the Financial Times and Conde Nast Traveller Magazine as one of the world’s best outdoor cinema experiences, and lauded by Radio 2 DJ, Jo Whiley amongst others, last year's alfresco cinematic sessions provided the perfect backdrop of peeling waves and stunning sunsets. Although in a neighbouring field (but still within Trebelsue Farm), the Wavelength Drive-In Cinema Series 2021 guarantees the same awe-inspiring setting overlooking hotspot; Watergate Bay Beach, near Newquay, North Cornwall, just from a different angle.

With space for over 200 cars and vans, the series will kick off on Friday 16th July, showing the 1978 'coming of age' surf film, Big Wednesday in the evening and mockumentary comedy, Surf's Up in the daytime. A total of 21 screenings will take place throughout the summer from July, across every weekend (from Thursdays to Sundays), with the sun finally setting on the sessions on 15th September.

The daytime showings will start at 12.45pm throughout with a host of fun family-friendly films such as The Goonies, The Greatest Showman, Moana and Pirates of the Caribbean amongst many others. The evening films will commence at 6pm. Some of the timeless cult classics set to screen include much-loved Dirty Dancing, legendary drive-in film, Grease and Spielberg thriller, Jaws. The surf-inspired movie line up will see exhilarating and entertaining options such as Blue Juice, Point Break, Riding Giants and Big Wednesday displayed atop the Atlantic Ocean. The full and extensive line up is available via Wavelength's website.

  A sneak peek, as they say

Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they've ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom's forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, the upcoming The Suicide Squad).

  The Unholy [read more]
  James Herbert's Shrine goes West
  Horror returns to the big screen on May 17th with THE UNHOLY, starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Katie Aselton, William Sadler, Cricket Brown, with Diogo Morgado and Cary Elwes.

To help prepare for the experience, Sony Pictures UK is pleased to make available the trailer, poster, and a set of stills from the film.

Gerry Fenn (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a disgraced journalist turned stringer-for-hire, of supernatural tabloid fodder, is sent to investigate a strange occurrence in a small farming community. A born skeptic, Fenn quickly dismisses the incident as just another benign story. But, before he writes it off as a hoax; Fenn witnesses a deaf, teenaged girl, Alice (Cricket Brown), whispering next to a petrified oak tree in the middle of a field. What follows, to his disbelief, is a series of inexplicable events that has the locals convinced Alice can perform miracles. When word spreads that Alice's power to heal is attributed to the Virgin Mary, it fans the flames of curiosity from those near and far to witness the miraculous occur firsthand.

As the hopeful masses descend upon this off-the-beaten-path town, Fenn sees this as an opportunity to redeem his reputation and resurrect his career. However, when a mysterious death befalls the church's priest, Fenn believes that something more sinister is afoot. With the help of a local doctor, Natalie Gates (Katie Aselton), Fenn rushes to unlock the secrets of long ago to determine if Alice's gift is divine or evil. Watch the trailer at the link above.
