Light House – January 2016 Programme

Published

on

Kicking off the new year and the 25th anniversary of Light House within the confines of the Chubb Buildings, with an almighty swish of a lightsabre and tip of a hat, the box office juggernaut that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens will continue to dazzle fans along with Steven Spielberg’s Bridge Of Spies, his latest effort led by Tom Hanks.

Another dynamic duo re-teaming this month is director Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) and Eddie Redmayne, tackling the remarkable story of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, which also stars Ex Machina’s Alicia Vikander. Outdoing the former with now their third collaboration together, the trio of David O.Russell, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper attempt to bring some post-Christmas Joy to the screen.

Attempting to prove he’s far from washed up away from his fellow Avengers, Ron Howard dumps Chris Hemsworth and co. In The Heart Of The Sea, whilst Emma Donoghue’s heartbreaking best-seller Room is given a tremendous adaptation by Frank director Lenny Abrahamson.

Fresh from his Best Picture win at the Oscars with the biting Birdman, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu looks to break the award curse for his leading man Leonardo Dicaprio with The Revenant, as the incomparable Quentin Tarantino provides us another distinct cinematic vision, with his fittingly titled eighth film The Hateful Eight.

With awards season looming large, we will also see the welcome returns of various British hopefuls, in the form of womens’ rights drama Suffragette, The Lady In The Van headed up by Dame Maggie Smith and the critically acclaimed Brooklyn, directed by John Crowley.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

on

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

First ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Trailer Is An Atomic Blast

Published

on

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
