Heaven 17 to headline at Silicon Dreams

The Silicon Dreams festival in July is to be joined by one of the Godfathers of British synthesiser music.
Martyn Ware, co-founder of The Human League, Heaven 17 and British Electric Foundation will be hosting An Evening With… special event on Saturday 6th July. He will talk about his career as one of the pioneers of British electronic music who helped change the charts forever. Later in the evening he will be joined by special guests Northern Kind and Heaven 17 for some fantastic live performances.

It was in 1977 that Ware met Ian Craig Marsh during an arts project. They decided to form a band called The Future and recorded demos in a disused cutlery workshop in Sheffield. Philip Oakey was later recruited as vocalist, so with a new line-up and sound The Human League was born. Their first single, Being Boiled was released in 1978 to critical acclaim - live performances gained them credibility, supporting the likes of Siouxsie and the Banshees and Iggy Pop.

Ware and Marsh left The Human League in late 1980 to form Heaven 17, taking their name from a fictional band in Anthony Burgess’ novel A Clockwork Orange. Glenn Gregory joined as their vocalist. Their debut album, Penthouse and Pavement, is regarded as something of a cult classic today. Meanwhile, Ware and Marsh also formed a production company called British Electric Foundation. As BEF they worked with artists such as Hank Marvin, Green Gartside (of Scritti Politti), Chaka Khan and Tina Turner. Turner’s career was revived with the resulting hit Let’s Stay Together.

Heaven 17’s first single, (We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang just missed the Top 40 but attracted some attention due to the political nature of the lyrics. It was their second album The Luxury Gap which provided their biggest hit, when Temptation made no.2 in the charts in 1983. The song has evergreen popularity, having enjoyed various remixes and reissues over the years since.

In the late nineties, Ware created 3D sound technology for a museum project in Sheffield which later toured as an Arts Council project. He is a Visiting Professor at Queen Mary College (University of London) and has an Honorary Doctorate in Science from University of London. He is also a BAFTA member and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Matt Culpin and Sarah Heeley first met in Leicester in 2001, through indie pop project Minithin. The pair lost touch for three years, but were reunited by the power of SMS in 2003 when Matt found Sarah’s number in his phone book.

In less than a year they recorded their first album as Northern Kind. 53 Degrees North topped album and download charts across Europe, gained the band a passionate following in the UK and won them prestigious dates supporting Gary Numan and a string of gigs alongside 80s greats including Midge Ure, Boy George, Howard Jones, Paul Young and Kim Wilde.

In 2009 their second album, Wired, mastered by Simon Heyworth (Tubular Bells) was hailed as “one of the most important electronic albums of the year” by Gareth Jones (Producer, Depeche Mode) and this secured them a UK tour with pop legends Kajagoogoo.

The duo are now launching their third album - Credible Sexy Unit. There’s a good feel about the album and the duo feel that they are producing some of their favourite and most refined electronic music yet. Euphonic (song for Chloe) and Dreams are released on iTunes and the response so far is exciting to say the least. We look forward to the next stomping chapter of Northern Kind history…

The Silicon Dreams festival celebrates our silicon chip age. It is a new family event to be held at Snibston Discovery Museum including computing workshops, retro computing and vintage gaming. It doesn't stop there - there will also be film-related entertainment, arts activities and - of course - electronic music. On top of all this, there will be all the attractions of Snibston including science, engineering, fashion and toy galleries, a heritage railway and an area for under fives. There is also the country park. It will be the first of its kind and a very special weekend is promised.

Silicon Dreams : An Evening With Martyn Ware promises to be a very special evening for just two hundred lucky people. It will take place at the Century Theatre, Snibston Discovery Museum on Saturday 6th July 2013. Food will be provided as guests gather, before convening to the theatre where Martyn will provide a fascinating insight into his career. This will be followed by live music from Northern Kind with a preview of their new album. Finally, Heaven 17 will perform live and give us some of their best-known songs...

Ticket sales and information will be available from the beginning of May. See for further details, Silicon Dreams on Facebook or @SiliconDreamsGB on Twitter.

Planes, the characters

Dusty (voice of Dane Cook)
Dusty is a plane with high hopes—literally. Crop duster by trade, this single-prop plane sees himself soaring alongside his high-flying heroes in an international race. The fact that he’s not really built for competitive racing doesn’t deter him from pursuing his dream—but his fear of heights just might. With a little help from his friends—and a WWII vet with wisdom to spare—Dusty takes off on an adventure of a lifetime, going prop-to-prop with champions while daring to reach heights he never imagined possible.

Skipper Riley (voice of Stacy Keach)
A reclusive old Navy Corsair, Skipper was an ace flier and top instructor of the esteemed Jolly Wrenches squadron until an incident during a combat mission took him off the front lines and left him grounded for life. These days, Skipper keeps to himself, but his quiet existence is turned upside down when an ambitious and persistent Dusty solicits Skipper’s aerial expertise—and gets a few life lessons in the process. But Skipper—who’s never really come to terms with his past—finds that he has a few things to learn, too, and while coaching Dusty to fly faster and smarter, the teacher becomes the student.

Leadbottom (voice of Cedric the Entertainer)
Leadbottom is a puttering old biplane and a grumbling taskmaster, a real “tank-half-empty” kind of guy. As the proprietor of Vitaminamulch, a special—albeit putrid—blend of vitamins, minerals, and mulch that works miracles when sprayed on crops, Leadbottom has no time for Dusty’s far-fetched flights of fancy. There are too many crops to spray and not enough hours in the day to spray them. For Leadbottom, it’s work first, then … well, more work.

Dottie (voice of Teri Hatcher)
Dottie is a forklift who co-owns and operates Chug and Dottie’s Fill ’n Fly service station. As Dusty’s practical and say-it-like-it-is friend—not to mention his ace mechanic—Dottie hopes to keep his high-flying hopes grounded in reality: Dusty isn’t built to race and chasing his dream is downright dangerous. No matter what he decides, however, Dottie will always have his back.

Chug (voice of Brad Garrett)
Fuel truck Chug is a guy’s guy. He works hard as co-owner of Chug and Dottie’s Fill ’n Fly service station—and plays hard indulging in his own fuel from time to time. He has a big personality and is a bold supporter of Dusty’s high-flying endeavors. Indeed, he’s not only Dusty’s buddy, he’s his coach and biggest fan. And if Chug can’t help Dusty reach new heights, he’ll find someone who can.


Ripslinger (voice of Roger Craig Smith)
With more wins than he can count and an abundance of fans, Ripslinger is wings-down the biggest name in air racing—and he knows it. But despite sky’s-the-limit funding and state-of-the-art equipment, the world champion still doesn’t play fair—especially when it comes to a small-town plane with zero racing experience. Dusty doesn’t belong in Ripslinger’s sport and his mere presence makes the pro’s fuel boil. And if Dusty’s inexperience doesn’t take him out of the race, Ripslinger’s vast empire includes a couple of underhanded sidekicks to take care of business.

Ned & Zed (voice of Gabriel Iglesias)
Team Ripslinger’s bombastic racers Ned and Zed specialize in sabotage. Lacking the skills to actually outrace the competition, they simply eliminate it, propelling boss Ripslinger to victory every single time. Zed, a rowdy and reckless flier, and Ned, a strange bird himself, may not be the sharpest props in the hangar, but they have figured out how to draft off Ripslinger’s fame.

El Chupacabra (voice of Carlos Alazraqui)
The intensely charming El Chupacabra is a legend in Mexico (just ask him). Powered by his passion for racing (not to mention the elusive Rochelle), this caped Casanova is anything but low-key—his booming voice and charismatic presence are as big as his oversized engine. His cohorts aren’t really sure what is truth and what is delusion when it comes to El Chu, but one thing is beyond doubt: he races with a whole lot of heart and more dramatic flair than is recommended at high altitudes.

Rochelle (voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus)
Rochelle is a tough racer and the pride of the Great White North. Always confident and capable, she got her start running mail to small towns in Quebec, picking up home remedies for mechanical maladies along the way. She also developed a knack for fast travel that ultimately inspired her to give air racing a try. Rochelle never looked back (this competitive contender doesn’t need to). She is relentlessly pursued by charmer El Chupacabra, but steadfast Rochelle is much too focused on winning the race to return his affections.

Bulldog (voice of John Cleese)
Bulldog has been racing longer than every other racer on the circuit. As the oldest and arguably wisest, he remembers a time before GPS, when real racers trusted their gyros and navigated by the stars. When it comes to racing, it boils down to two qualities, says Bulldog: good flying and sportsmanship. Period. While the competition secretly wonders if the aging plane is past his prime, he flies his way onto the leader board again and again, proving that this Bulldog has lost none of his bite.

Ishani (voice of Priyanka Chopra)
The reigning Pan-Asian champion from India, Ishani is easy on the eyes, but ruthless in the skies. Thanks to her high-speed competitiveness and notable talent, she has amassed more than a billion loyal fans—including one rookie racer who turns to her for guidance. Exotic and mysterious, Ishani is full of surprises, but always has her eye on the prize.


Bravo & Echo (voices of Val Kilmer & Anthony Edwards)
Armed with stellar instincts, incredible aerial abilities and outstanding service records, Bravo and Echo are two of the Jolly Wrenches’ top troops. These fighter jets happen to be avid air racing fans, too, with a special affinity for Dusty, who’s adopted their Jolly Wrenches insignia. And as far as the racers are concerned, it doesn’t hurt to have a couple soldiers nearby should any plane falter under the immense pressure of the world’s most rigorous rally.

Roper (voice of Sinbad)
This irascible race official pitty delivers the rules for the North American Wings Around the Globe time trials with a matter-a-fact personality and a wry sense of humor. In fact, Roper never misses an opportunity to offer his own take on the events that unfold. With sly remarks and colorful commentary, Roper is funny but firm in his dealings with the race and the racers.

Colin Cowling (voice of Colin Cowherd)
Affable blimp Colin Cowling attended the prestigious Zeppelin Broadcasting School and began his career as the play-by-play voice for the Pacific Coast Balloon Races. He got his big break—so to speak—when his Eye-In-The-Sky-In-Sports weekly recap show was noticed by producers of Racing Sports Network (RSN).

Gabriel Iglesias (Comedy Central’s “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-up Revolution”) provides the voices of both Ned and Zed, two not-so-sharp saboteurs who work for Ripslinger.

Val Kilmer (“Batman Forever,” “Top Gun”) provides the voice of Bravo, a member of the Jolly Wrenches and a fan of air racing.

Sinbad (Comedy Central’s “Where U Been?”) brings to life Roper, an irascible race official pitty full of sly remarks and colorful commentary.

Oliver Kalkofe (“Neues vom Wixxer”) provides the voice of meek German minicar Franz and his brazen airborne alter ego Fliegenhosen.

Brent Musburger (ESPN, ABC Sports) brings Brent Mustangburger, the excitable 1964½ Ford Mustang sports broadcasting icon, back to the big screen.

From above the world of “Cars” comes “Disney’s Planes,” an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
“Disney’s Planes” takes off in cinemas on Aug. 9, 2013.

Kiss Ass 2 gets character posters

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
KICK-ASS 2 is in UK cinemas July 19, 2013.

White House Down

For a second I thought that this was a new trailer for Olympus Has Fallen. It isn't. It's seems to be more of a "popcorn version" of that film. It's directed by Roland Emmerich so you know what to expect!

The first thing that struck me from watching the trailer is "I hope they sort out that dodgy CGI on the White House". Then again, it may be designed to look like that as it's taken from a "TV broadcast".

So just dit back, put your brain on standby, and enjoy!

In Columbia Pictures’ White House Down, Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save his daughter, the president, and the country.

The film is directed by Roland Emmerich, written by James Vanderbilt, and produced by Bradley J. Fischer, Harald Kloser, James Vanderbilt, Larry Franco, and Laeta Kalogridis. Executive Producers are Ute Emmerich, Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin.

All Stars

After seeing the poster I was scared that this film would be a cheap rip-off of Glee and Step-up. On the plus side, after watching the trailer all my prejudices for the film has vanished. It does have a definatly C/D list set of "celebrities". Somebody from Girls Aloud, that guy from Dr Who and somebody who won a dance competition four years ago!

It's a good looking, silly, modern Youff movie.

ALL STARS, is the British energetic 3D family film from the producers of Horrid Henry: The Movie and the hugely popular StreetDance 3D films and is released on 3rd May 2013.

Starring a fantastic British cast, Theo Stevenson (Horrid Henry) and Akai (winner, Got To Dance 2009), Ashley Jensen (Ugly Betty), Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud and Ashley Walters (Anuvahood) and John Barrowman, to name but a few.

The film sees two young friends recruiting a dance crew and staging a talent show in a bid to save their much loved youth club from demolition. But it’s not all plain sailing!


From the producer of Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Sinister comes DARK SKIES: a supernatural thriller about a young family living in the suburbs. Daniel and Lacey Barret and their two young sons witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family. Unable to understand what is happening to them their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels and friends turn against them.

When it becomes clear they are being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lacey take matters into their own hands to uncover the truth and protect what belongs to them.

Finding the perfect home is tough enough without having to think about ghosts, demons, and aliens. So to celebrate the release of Dark Skies on April 3, 2013 we are taking a whistle-stop tour around the film houses you really wouldn’t want to call home, including: the Bates mansion from Psycho, Leatherface’s family home from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the Freeling household from Poltergeist.

The Barrett family home (DARK SKIES)
You could not ask for a nicer home than the Barrett’s house. Situated in the heart of a pleasant neighbourhood with friendly neighbours on both sides this is a lovely property for any family. The only downside to this location is the occasion attacks from ‘The Grays’, dark forces intent on causing disruption and general havoc.

The Bates Mansion (PSYCHO)
Do not be deceived by attractive offers of dinner with an elderly woman at the Bates mansion. For once you step into this home your chances of coming out alive are seriously diminished. A particular room to avoid would be the basement, in which you may meet a few more residence than you bargained for.

This quiet country residence is far from the city and will provide time away from the hustle and bustle. Unfortunately it also homes a leather-faced, chainsaw-wielding serial killer who enjoys impaling women and massacring travellers searching for petrol. It is also worth noting that local petrol station attendants and hitchhikers are not to be trusted.

This Dutch Colonial house located in a suburban neighbourhood in Long Island looks like the perfect home for a family of five, but all is not as it seems in this dark residence. Strange goings on include swarms of flies, red swine-like eyes outside the second floor window and ooze that drips out of the walls and the toilets.

The Freeling household in Cuesta Verde (POLTERGEIST)
In the planned community of Cuesta Verde sits the Freeling house. The house seems fine at first but when the static on the TV starts playing up it is time to go. Be especially careful of the living room ceiling and bedroom closet. Nothing serious, they are just portals to a ghostly realm inhabited by ghouls who will steal your children. Like I said, nothing serious.

The Isolated Cabin (THE EVIL DEAD)
A remote cabin in Morristown Tennessee is the ideal location for a spring break with a couple of friends. The local woodland is perfect for walks and the cabin is nice and cosy. My only advice would be to steer clear of reading the ‘book of the dead’. If you decide to give this charming publication a read you may experience such frustrations as sadistic trees, fire-poker-wielding girlfriends and demons possessing your friends and trying to butcher you.

The MacNeil’s (THE EXORCIST)
Situated in Georgetown, Washington is the house which the MacNeils call home. This lovely re-brick house on the corner of Prospect and 36 is worth every penny. It’s worth avoiding one of the bedroom however, as a demon named Pazuzu has the nasty habit of possessing its inhabitant. It usually takes two priests to get rid of this nasty individual, and please note that the window will need replacing after their visit.

Star Trek Into Darkness Paramount Pictures celebrate WWF's Earth Hour

LONDON, Saturday 23rd March - As the UK prepares to go ’into darkness’ for WWF’s Earth Hour, Paramount Pictures is pleased to announce its support with a special ‘Star Trek’ themed light display which will dim as Earth Hour approaches.

This amazing light show by Paramount, in conjunction with Ars Electronica Futurelab & Ascending Technologies, will see quadrocopters fly into the night sky, forming the Star Trek federation logo beside Tower Bridge on a scale never seen before. In keeping with Earth Hour's initiative, the quadrocopters will utilize batteries that were charged in Austria using green energy from the Austrian renewable energy grid specifically for this event.

The event will coincide with WWF’s Earth Hour at 8:30 pm. Along with key landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and The London Eye going dark, the quadrocopters will turn off their glow in support of Earth Hour.

To signal the end of Earth Hour at 9:30 pm the quadrocopters will reform the Star Trek logo above London’s skyline.

The logo formation will hover about 36m (118ft) above the ground at the lowest point and the highest point (the tip of the logo) will be at approximately 130m (426ft) above ground. The total height of the logo will be approximately 94meters (308ft).

The light show can be captured from the main location at Old Billingsgate Walk, giving a view of Tower Bridge and City Hall. Other vantage points for the public are the Tower of London and on location at Potters Field Park, Tooley Street, Southwark, London SE1 2AA.

John Fletcher, Director of Marketing for Paramount Pictures UK said “We are very pleased to go ‘into darkness’ with the rest of the world in support of Earth Hour. It seems fitting to be associated with such a global cause.”

Kellie Rollings from WWF said “WWF is delighted that Paramount is supporting this year’s Earth Hour event. Millions of people around the world take part in Earth Hour year on year and we’re always looking for innovative ways to get our message out there. It’s fantastic that Paramount has chosen to mark the hour by dimming their lights at this unusual light display.

“STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS” is written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof and directed by J.J. Abrams. Abrams is producing with Bryan Burk through Bad Robot Productions, along with Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci. Jeffrey Chernov and Skydance Productions’ David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake are the executive producers.

Some times I do wonder what goes through the head of some screen writers. Who comes up with the idea of making a film about a snail who wants to go fast? Well someone over a Dreamworks did and it looks great fun.

Turbo is a snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world. His obsession with speed has made him an oddity and outsider in the slow and cautious snail community. Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he’s living, and he gets that chance after a freak accident leaves him with the power of incredible speed. The newly turbo-charged Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that the Indianapolis 500 has to offer. Joining Turbo is his dedicated pit crew of racing snails – a ragtag group of trash-talking adrenaline junkies tricked out with shells that look like mini-street racing cars. Turbo is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations get in the way of his dreams.
TURBO is released in UK cinemas on 18th October 2013 from Twentieth Century Fox


I Know I'm behind the curve on putting this on the blog. On the other hand you can also see the first image that has been released for the film as well.

THE ALAN PARTRIDGE MOVIE portrays the events of the greatest low-to-high-ebb spectrum in his life to date – specifically how he tries to salvage his public career while negotiating a potentially violent turn of events at North Norfolk Digital Radio.

Stephen Graham to Star in 'Orthodox'

Principal photography to commence on 31st March 2013

London, 2013 – Zeitgeist Films is delighted to announce the start of principal photography on feature film ORTHODOX.

Shooting for 3 weeks in and around Newcastle, ORTHODOX is a product of the success of the short film of the same name written and directed by David Leon, which premiered at the London Film Festival in 2012. Leon, winner of the Best Narrative Short award for his film Man and Boy at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, and Screen International’s 2012 ‘Star of Tomorrow,’ will once again take on the roles of writer and director.

Around 70% of the footage from the original short will feature in the finished film and all original cast remain attached to the project including: STEPHEN GRAHAM (This Is England, Boardwalk Empire) who also joins the project as an Executive Producer, MICHAEL SMILEY (Kill List), CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK (Fifth Element, Pirates of the Caribbean) and GIACOMO MANCINI (Top Boy).

Alongside Leon, ORTHODOX is produced by Daisy Allsop.

Gareth Wiley (Match Point, Vicki Cristina Barcelona) and Stephen Graham take on the roles of Executive Producers.

Producer Daisy Allsop commented: “Thanks to the support of our original cast and the positive reaction to the short we are excited to be expanding the film to feature length and watching these characters evolve.”

Director/Writer David Leon commented: "The world that these characters inhabit is so rich it's always seemed like a natural canvas for a film. Benjamin is a man caught between two worlds, the Orthodox Jewish community and mainstream life, yet the challenges he faces are much like those that we all have to confront. Through the decisions he makes he becomes an ordinary man in extraordinary circumstances."

Ingenious Media has backed the production company through its new Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme* (SEIS) fund. Ingenious is the largest investor in the UK’s creative industries and has backed independent British films including Girl With A Pearl Earring, Brick Lane and Vera Drake. Orthodox will benefit from its deep industry expertise and the unique global network of relationships it has developed over the past 14 years.

Benjamin, a man persecuted for his commitment to the Orthodox Jewish faith, is pushed towards the fringe of the religious community. Taking up boxing as a means of self-defence, he quickly finds himself out of his depth in a criminal underworld.

The Minions, and Gru are back

Not only do we get the evily new trailer for Dispicable Me, we also get three new images of The Minions. This time it seems that Gru has changed sides; from being an evil, super-villain to working for "the other side"...

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. In summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2. Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions...and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.
Meet the minions in UK cinemas from June 28, 2013


The Princess Bride is getting a 25th Anniversary release on Blu-ray and with that news, we can proudly present some facts about the film that you may not have been aware of.
  • The birth of the novel on which the film is based can be partially credited to author William Goldman’s daughters: when he asked them what they would want in a story, one replied “A princess!” and the other, “A bride!
  • When William Goldman was first trying to get the movie made in the 1970s, an unknown Arnold Schwarzenegger wanted to play Fezzik. He was strongly considered because Goldman was unable to cast his first choice, André the Giant, but when it was ready to go into production, Schwarzenegger had become a huge star and was too expensive to hire. André was cast and the two big men had gone on to become friends.
  • Author of the original book, William Goldman, was on set during one of the flame burst scenes in the forest when Robin Wright's dress caught fire and was so into the scene that he shouted, "Her dress is on fire!” ruining the take.
  • Cary Elwes was cast because he reminded Rob Reiner of swashbuckling actors Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn, both of whom had played Robin Hood. Elwes went on to spoof their performances in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
  • Director Rob Reiner had auditioned over 500 women for the role of Buttercup, including Courtney Cox, Meg Ryan, Sean Young, Uma Thurman and Whoopie Goldberg. He ended up hiring Robin Wright Penn in her major film debut.
  • According to Mandy Patinkin the role of Inigo Montoya is his personal favourite over the course of his entire career.
  • Mandy Patinkin has said that his famous line "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." gets quoted back to him by at least two or three strangers every day of his life.
  • The film proved to be a cathartic experience for Mandy Patinkin, who revealed that acting out Inigo's quest to avenge his father's murder brought back memories of losing his own father to cancer in 1972. He said that when filming the scene when Inigo kills The Six-Fingered Man, he felt as though he had just "killed" the cancer that killed his father.
  • Rob Reiner once ran into notorious mobster John Gotti at a restaurant. To his surprise, as Reiner was leaving one of Gotti’s henchmen looked him in the eye and said “You killed my father. Prepare to Die” before going on to say that he loved the movie.
  • Rob Reiner left the set during Billy Crystal's scenes because he would laugh so hard that he would be overcome with nausea. Furthermore, Mandy Patinkin claims that the only injury he sustained during filming was a bruised rib due to stifling his laughter during these scenes.
  • Max and Valerie, played by Billy Crystal and Carol Kane respectively, are named after author William Goldman's parents, Max and Valerie.
  • Despite his character Fezzik's near-superhuman strength, André the Giant had recently undergone back surgery which prevented him from lifting anything heavy. Robin Wright had to be attached to wires in the scene where Princess Buttercup jumps from the castle window into Fezzik's arms because he couldn't support her himself.
  • André the Giant had trouble walking up a hill on which they shot a scene, so he rented a small four-wheeler to help him. Having a go behind the wheel, Cary Elwes went over a rock, which got caught between his foot and the pedal, breaking his toe. The shoot could not be delayed, so in the film you can see him limping away when he's running into the swamp.
  • When the weather was particularly cold, André the Giant would place his giant hand over Robin Wright’s head, covering it entirely and keeping her warm.
  • As André the Giant could not read, he had all of his lines recorded so that he could memorise them.
  • When filming the scene in which Count Rugen hits Westley over the head with the hilt of his sword, Cary Elwes told Christopher Guest to hit him for real. Guest hit him so hard that the production was shut-down for a day while Elwes went to the hospital.
  • Most of the movie was filmed on location in the UK. The castle used for the film was Haddon Hall, a fortified country house built by William the Conquerer in 1086 for his illegitimate son. The tapestries in the interiors are original, dating to the late medieval and renaissance periods.
  • A diminutive actor who portrayed one of the giant rats was arrested for speeding during production. He had to be bailed out of jail by the filmmakers so that his scene could be filmed.
  • Mel Smith has never watched his performance as The Albino due to the painful experience involved in filming the role. He was required to wear coloured contact lenses and, unknown to Smith and the costume department, he was allergic to the lens solution. Smith has been reluctant to relive the painful memory.
  • Cary Elwes and Mandy Patinkin performed all of their own sword-fighting after many hours of training. According to Rob Reiner, the only stunt performed by Patinkin's stunt double was one flip during the 'Chatty Duelists' scene.
  • Although both Cary Elwes and Mandy Patinkin learned to fence expertly with their left and right hands, the scene in which they switch hands was actually shot on two mirrored sets so the image could be flipped, creating the illusion that they were equally dexterous with each hand.
  • During the fight between Count Rugen and Inigo, Christopher Guest got so into the scene that he started making sword noises with his mouth like a child play-fighting. Rob Reiner stopped the take and told him that this wouldn’t be necessary.
  • The Dread Pirate Roberts costume was modelled after that of Zorro only leaving out the cape as it was felt it was unnecessary.
  • The real "Dread Pirate Roberts", who operated in the Caribbean in the early 18th century, is considered by many to have been the most successful pirate of all time.
  • The hat that Rob Reiner wore in This Is Spinal Tap can be seen in The Grandson's bedroom; a request from the film’s composer Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits.
  • In early 2013, a man on a flight from Sydney to Australia was asked to remove a t-shirt which displayed Inigo Montoya’s famous line, since the other passengers (clearly not fans of the film) found the words “prepare to die” to be intimidating.
  • Count Rugen's death in the original novel was more graphic. After telling the "son of a bitch" he wants his father back, Inigo proceeds to cut Rugen's heart out, describing what he's doing to Rugen, claiming that the count had figuratively done the same to him when he murdered his father years before (Inigo even tells Fezzik earlier on, "That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when Rugen slaughtered my father. The Man in Black makes it now.") However, before Inigo finishes cutting out the Count's heart, Rugen dies of fright.
  • After the last day of shooting some of the cast stayed around for up to five hours while every person, every grown-up and their family came by, waited in line like children at Disney Land to stand with André The Giant and have their photograph taken. He had his photograph taken with every single person that asked.
The Princess Bride 25th Anniversary Edition is released on Blu-ray on 25th March 25, 2013

The evil appears in Star Trek

I would say that I have been sent two great, new, images for Star Trek Into Darkness but that wouldn't be true. However, we do get a new image of Benedict Cumberbatch looking very Sherlock like as well as Spock and Kirk.  I'm not sure if they are looking thoughtful or constipated in their image...

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

The Bureau’s ‘Save Our Scripts’ programme opens call for submissions

The ‘Save Our Scripts’ (SOS) Development Lab launches its third edition with new partners and a clear focus on UK talent. Script submissions open on Monday 18 March 2013.

Run by The Bureau SOS is now searching for emerging writers and producers for the 7 month programme during which writers will develop a feature length screenplay and producers will fast track their development experience.
Creative Skillset continues its support of the training, whilst SOS welcomes new partnerships with the London Film School, Three Mills Studios, and the Genova-Liguria Film Commission.

The programme is searching for emerging writers with confident, singular voices, and producers with clear ambition who want to build on their development skills.

The programme is built around three workshops one of which will be a residential in Genova. During the programme the writers will develop a feature length screenplay from a short outline, with the ongoing support of the SOS mentors, and their fellow participants. The producers will partake in the final two workshops, and through seminars, group discussions and project specific work, will learn a range of development skills and approaches.
SOS is based on the value of shared experience. This begins with the course mentors, but continues amongst the participants themselves, and from the programme’s exceptional guest speakers.

The programme mentors are Valentina Brazzini who is responsible for development and talent tracking at The Bureau, Tristan Goligher the producer of Weekend and currently the Executive Producer of iFeatures2, and finally Matthieu de Braconier co-producer of London River and formerly executive producer of the prestigious Cinema Extreme short film scheme.

Past speakers include Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire), Joe Penhall (The Road), Hanif Kureishi (Venus), Thomas Bidegain and Pascal Caucheteux (A Prophet), and Michel Reilhac (Arte).

The Bureau commented: “We are really excited to be launching SOS for the third year. Each cycle of the programme allows us to engage and support the vast wealth of talented filmmakers that are looking for an opportunity to develop their skills. We are thrilled to have new partners on board who will aide us in ensuring this is SOS’s most successful year yet.

Iron man gets a new poster

We have seen quite a lot of character posters over the last couple of months. This time we have a montage poster. It seems to be bolted together form a couple of the character posters with a background that seems to be made form the trailers.

When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark disc0overs the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

THE CROODS Salutes Spring Solstice At Stonehenge!

With the help of Belt and the Scouts from the 2nd Bulford Scouts Troop & 6th Salisbury Scouts Troop The Croods celebrated the Spring Solstice at Stonehenge in their own way...

19th March 2013: In celebration of the Spring Solstice 2013 and in conjunction with the release of Twentieth Century Fox's 3D animation ‘THE CROODS’ - a family animation centered around the first ever pre historic road trip - a giant monument was erected at Stonehenge at sunrise today, Tuesday 19th March. This marks the first time a modern structure has EVER been allowed on this historic site.

The Spring Solstice or ‘Vernal Equinox’ recognises the first day of spring and each year sees druids and pagans gather at Stonehenge early in the morning to watch the sun rise above the prehistoric stones. This year an additional monument, in the shape of ‘THE CROODS’, will become part of these special celebrations at daybreak.
Meet the first modern family, THE CROODS, whose world is rocked by generational clashes and seismic shifts that come to a head on a wild road trip filled with dazzling adventures, amazing firsts (like fire…and shoes), never before seen creatures and the epic discovery that they’ll have to stay one step ahead of the ever-changing world or get left in the prehistoric dust.
THE CROODS presents an age known as the Croodaceous Period, which, says DeMicco, “fell between the Jurassic Age and the ‘Katzenzoic Era’– at least according to DreamWorks archaeologists.” It is a world of visual splendor and grandeur that holds innumerable challenges for the beleaguered clan.

Olympus Has Fallen gets a new trailer

When terrorists take over the White House, a disgraced Secret Service agent attempts to rescue the president of the United States in Olympus Has Fallen, an electrifying and ingenious action thriller from acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). A small group of heavily armed, meticulously trained extremists launches a daring daylight ambush on the White House, overrunning the building and taking President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his staff hostage inside an impenetrable underground presidential bunker. As a pitched battle rages on the White House lawn, former presidential security officer Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) joins the fray, only to find himself the last Secret Service member alive in the besieged building.

Banning uses his extensive training and detailed knowledge of the presidential residence to become the eyes and ears of Acting President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) and his advisors. As the invaders begin executing hostages and threaten to kill more unless their outrageous demands are met, Banning tries frantically to locate the president's young son, hidden somewhere in the building, and rescue the president before the terrorists can unleash their ultimate, terrifying plan. As the body count mounts and the clock ticks down, it becomes clear that Banning is America's only hope of avoiding utter annihilation..
Olympus Has Fallen explodes into UK cinemas April 17, 2013 from Lionsgate
