Cinema First – The 450 Films For UK Cinemas!

Today Cinema First released a list of films that can be used at cinemas when they reopen in July. With Cineworld being the first to announce a date for England on 10th July they will then need films to show. The list has a very wide variety of genres as well as from all decades. I personally hope to see a lot of older films on the big screen for the first time, I don’t want recent ones given a release! Let’s appreciate some amazing films on the big screen for what could well be the very first time (Yes Casablanca and Some Like It Hot I am talking about you, not forgetting my all time favourite When Harry Met Sally!)

Happy 63rd Birthday Richard E. Grant!

That’s right today is the legend that is Richard E. Grant’s 63rd birthday! He has been keeping everyone entertained on Twitter during lockdown with his Withnail & Isolation quotes, which really are a big highlight of this tough time!

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the many different roles he has taken on and hope that we get to see his amazing turn in Everybody’s Talking About Jamie film version in October!

Trailer – Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker (2019)

Let’s face it this was always going to look totally epic and I think that is certainly what they have captured for the trailer. Not long to go now until the saga ends (I’m sure we’ve heard that before though right?) But seeing Carrie Fisher as Leia again really does tug at the heartstrings!

19th December for UK release!
