IT’S ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS RELEASE DATE 4 NOVEMBER / Director Tom Ford / Starring Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon / Genre Drama, Thriller

Susan Morrow lives a privileged yet unfulfilled life with her husband Hutton. One weekend, as Hutton departs on one of his too-frequent business trips, Susan receives a package. It’s a novel, Nocturnal Animals, written by her ex-husband, with whom she has had no contact for years. Alone at night, in bed, Susan begins reading. The novel is dedicated to her but its content is violent and devastating. Susan increasingly interprets the book as a tale of revenge that forces her to re-evaluate her choices and re-awakens a love that she feared was lost. As the story builds to a reckoning that will define both the novel’s hero and her own, the divorced couple discover dark truths about each other and themselves in this haunting romantic thriller that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. 8 November / December 2016

A

fter pursuing cinematic innovation during the 2000s, Robert Zemeckis returned at the turn of the decade to live-action filmmaking with high-flying ambition. Flight and The Walk blew audiences away with their scope, but left many underwhelmed and fell short of expectations. Now, Zemeckis is keeping both feet firmly on the ground by venturing from spectacle again to deliver an intimate, back-to-basics, characterdriven narrative that evokes his greatest cinematic achievements.

ALLIED

Set against the backdrop of The Second World War, Allied follows intelligence officer Max Vatan and French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour who engage in a steamy love affair during a mission in Casablanca. Now back in London and married, the couple seem to live a perfectly happy life, until Max is informed that Marianne is a suspected Nazi spy. The military order Max to investigate his wife and, worst of all, if the allegations are true, assassinate her, or face the gallows himself. Torn between love and loyalty, and recognising that attitudes towards each other have changed, the couple’s romantic alliance is tested to breaking point in a pulsating spy thriller that may just offer a few surprises as awards season approaches.

‘TIS THE SEASON! Allied is our dark horse for this awards season, here’s where it could feature:

Best Director Robert Zemeckis’ best film since Cast Away, we wouldn’t bet against him becoming a two-time Oscar winner.

Best Leading Actor/Actress Two very competitive categories this year with some huge names already creating a lot of buzz, but the chemistry between Allied’s leads is so palpable that we can’t write them off.

Best Original Screenplay The creator of Peaky Blinders and terrific single location drama Locke, Steven Knight, is making a real name for himself in an industry where original stories are at a premium.

Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) is a sixteenyear-old navigator who sets sail on a quest to team up with Maui (Dwayne Johnson), the legendary demigod, determined to save her family and civilisation from destruction. Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, the team behind The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Hercules, Moana wouldn’t be a Disney production without memorable tunes, and with Lin-Manuel Miranda co-writing the music (fresh off Broadway’s criticallyacclaimed Hamilton), this is sure to be a feast for eyes and ears - as well as a story to feed the heart.

FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

16 November / December 2016


RELEASE DATE 18 NOVEMBER / Director David Yates / Starring Eddie Redmayne, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell / Genre Adventure, Family, Fantasy

E

ver since the final victorious flourish of Harry Potter’s wand defeated He-WhoMust-Not-Be-Named, fans of the boy wizard have been clamouring for more magic to illuminate cinema screens. However, with the newest instalment to the mythology, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, debuting on London’s West End and only recently sending bookworms racing to the midnight launch of its written release, a long wait may well be in store for those in search of a cinematic continuation of the series. As if by magic and quicker than a cry of “Accio movie!”, a less renowned yet equally imaginative piece of J.K. Rowling’s magical universe has stampeded into cinemas. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is a spin-off prequel to the Harry Potter films, based on Rowling’s guide to the many creatures that inhabit the Potterverse. Written from the perspective of magizoologist Newt Scamander and featuring hastily scribbled classroom notes from Harry, Ron and Hermione, the compact index acted as a chance for muggles around the world to take a peek between the covers of a textbook deemed essential for Hogwarts students. David Yates, the director responsible for the final four films in the Potter series, has returned to unleash Rowling’s wondrous beasts upon the big screen and elaborate on Newt’s amazing exploits. The story takes place in New York City. The year is 1926. Our unlikely hero has travelled the world, procuring its most unusual, extraordinary, and perhaps dangerous magical creatures, and cramming them inside the surprisingly

roomy confines of his suitcase. On a brief stop in the Big Apple, things quickly spiral out of control and Newt’s collection is let loose, sparking panic amongst both the magical and No-Maj (American Muggle) community. Newt quickly finds a group of witch and wizard comrades to help him roundup the contents of his case; however, what the No-Majs call “witchcraft” is far from welcome on New York’s streets, and division runs rife between the two uneasy communities. As rival leaders rally their forces, the threat of a deadly civil war looms. Can Newt help sooth the tension while also averting the city’s imminent destruction? An all-star cast has been assembled to embody the many equally fantastical characters onscreen. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne steps into Newt’s shoes in what promises to be another spellbinding performance. A supporting cast featuring established stars including Colin Farrell and Ezra Miller, alongside lesser-known talents such as Katherine Waterston, will undoubtedly capture Potter fans’ hearts and imaginations all over again as good and evil collide. The film is not only a chance to cast your eyes upon some truly astounding beasts, but an unmissable opportunity to explore an incomparable vision of New York City during the Roaring Twenties. Smoky speakeasy bars offer sanctuary to those fleeing the many restrictions of prohibition-era America. Secret societies go underground, while wealthy city dwellers live it up beneath New York’s bright lights. A trip to more exotic lands may also be on the cards, as Newt invites outsiders inside his little suitcase of tricks. New York is in turmoil, vast spells flood through its streets and beasts are running wild between its towering skyscrapers. It’s time to discover a whole new wizarding world and the heroes and villains battling for its future.

WIZARDS & WITCHES PORPENTINA GOLDSTEIN Demoted down the ranks of MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) due to her outspoken nature, ‘Tina’ proves to be a strong and brave ally to Newt. She may well become much more . . .

QUEENIE GOLDSTEIN Alison’s glamorous sister Queenie has the ability to read minds, a power Potter fans will recognise from its misuse by Voldemort years later.

JACOB KOWALSKI The only Muggle amongst Newt’s allies, Jacob also has a hand in freeing the magizoologist’s beasts. Clumsy but well-intentioned, can the war veteran make amends for his costly error?

PERCIVAL GRAVES Director of Magical Security at MACUSA, Graves is tasked with tracking down Newt after the beasts are released. This powerful wizard has little love for the No-Majs.

ore than five thousand people lie in cryostasis, midway through a galaxyspanning journey of a hundred and twenty years. A new life awaits them. Still ninety years from their destination, two pods are prematurely woken. As Jim (Chris Pratt), a mechanic who finds his skills obsolete on Earth, and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence), a writer from New York, come to accept their new reality as the sole humans on a five-mile ship, they have the rest of their lives onboard to

become acquainted. While their budding romance takes shape, it becomes apparent that the malfunction causing them to wake is not the only problem afflicting the gargantuan craft. Amid defective AIs and failing systems, a crew of two must find a way to save the thousands of others aboard. Pratt’s riding high from his Guardians Of The Galaxy and Jurassic World success, and Lawrence Hollywood’s highest paid actress - is celebrated in every role she embraces, so expect thrilling performances and dazzling chemistry. With an original script that has garnered huge buzz over the last two years and a budget of $120+ million, it’s exciting to see Hollywood betting big on a non-franchise production for the Christmas crowd.
