Prepare for the most ridiculously sincere blockbuster of the year
Remember when movies about chosen ones and intergalactic wars and space aliens used to be fun? Everyone in Ender's Game is desperately trying not to laugh at Ben Kingsley's face. Cheer up you miserable shits.

New poster for Ender's Game claims it's not a game, but then if it's not a game, why is it called Ender's Game? This game movie sounds too complicated, when's Grown Ups 3 out? (Via IMP).

Trailer breakdown: Ender's Game ain't hella lame
Up until now, Ender's Game only existed as a best-selling book, as words written in ink on paper, stored on shelves. No longer! It's a proper film now and it has a trailer, so you can learn to read another day! Enjoy our trailer breakdown, in which we tell you what to think.

Raiders Of The Lost Ark: the IMAX difference
Earlier this week I went to the IMAX to see Raiders Of The Lost Ark, officially one of the best films ever made on the biggest screen in the UK. Did you know it's really good? Because it is. What's more, the MAMMOTH screen makes even the most innocuous elements of the film seem gigantic. Let me try and visualise what I mean.

A nice story about Drew Struzan
Remember a while back I told you the documentary on famed movie poster artist Drew Struzan had run out of money and asked you to donate? Well, I did. And now I have a lovely story about Drew meeting Harrison Ford straight from the director himself.

Review: Cowboys & Aliens

Posted by Ali at 22:29 on 12 Aug 2011
Cowboys & Aliens
In his role as executive producer, Cowboys & Aliens represents Steven Spielberg's fourth alien movie this year, after Super 8, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and his cameo in Paul (and that's not mentioning his TV series, Falling Skies). Throw in the rest of the year's extra-terrestrial activity (get bent, Battle LA) and it's no surprise the genre is starting to look a little fatigued. More Western than sci-fi, Cowboys & Aliens at least has a hook, but when push comes to shove comes to "we have to destroy the invaders' conveniently accessible power source", it's Just Another Alien Movie like all the rest.

In defence of Shia LaBeouf
Nobody's favourite teen star Shia LaBeouf has been getting some stick lately, particularly from Harrison Ford, who called him a "fucking idiot" for ragging on Indiana Jones. Playing devil's advocate for a second, allow me to step up as LaBeouf's defence. Would the court please refrain from throwing rotten fruit until the summary.
