The Laundromat

The Laundromat

The Laundromat, in principle, doesn’t bring Steven Soderbergh to mind. The elevator pitch for it might well do – “the story of the Panama Papers leak told with enough broadness to portray both the Mos...

Charlie's Angels

Frozen 2

Frozen 2

The trailer for Frozen 2, the sequel to 2013’s surprisingly popular semi-adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s story ‘The Snow Queen’, looks good. That comes as something of a shock for me, consider...

Gemini Man

Gemini Man

Where once multiple actors or questionable prosthetics were employed to represent a character at different stages of their life, now CGI does all the legwork. De-aging technology has grown from a tool...

Le Mans '66

Ford Vs Ferrari Preview
