Don't even know how to words. (Trailer here: it's Paul Walker's remake of District 13, in case you were wondering).

Mark Wahlberg found something even more futile to run from than the wind
This new poster for Transformers: Age Of Extinction shows that Mark Wahlberg is still unclear about exactly what he can and can't run away from. Can run away from: people, cars, explosions (at a push). Can't run away from: responsibility, wind, giant planet-sized evil robot alien overlords.

Probably should have added Photoshop to this too. META.

Review: Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted
As the jovial opening number points out, the Muppets are back, by popular demand. Because that's what they do in Hollywood, even if everybody knows the sequel's never quite as good. Nevertheless, the studio considers them a viable franchise. The tune, happily poking fun at Hollywood's fascination with sequels, is just one of the many self-depreciating, self-aware gags that litter this sequel.

Eight astonishing things on the new X-Men: Days Of Future Past poster
The X-Men don't historically have a lot of luck when it comes to cool poster designs - who could forget 9/3/11? - and that trend continues with this mental new one-sheet for X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Featuring: ALL OF THE THINGS.

Review: Divergent

Divergent
Imagine a world where sexy teens battle against a dystopian landscape, and it's up to one plucky heroine to rise up and overthrow a corrupt governing body. You've just imagined The Hung- Oh no, wait, this is Divergent. And that is probably Divergent's initial problem, trying to overcome the inevitable comparisons with that other book/film that also has a lead girl in it. That and the fact that Theo James' magnificent cheekbones just REFUSE to QUIT. Seriously, you could cut glass with them.

Keytar solo! Dream casting for the Jem And The Holograms movie
When I was seven, I attempted to make my own keytar by looping the ends of the belt from my dad's dressing gown around my clunky Casio keyboard. Inevitably, as soon as the dressing gown cord touched my puny shoulders, my awesome keys fell from my grasp, crashed to the ground and splintered into a million tiny plastic shards, shattering my dreams with it. Because I wasn't upset so much about the keyboard being broken – I could only play 'When The Saints Go Marching In' on 'Slow' anyway. No, I was upset because it meant I no longer had the chance of being Stormer, the Misfit with a conscience from '80s cartoon Jem and The Holograms and an awesome blue 'do.
