  Glimpse [read more]
  More real than reality
  Taron Egerton (Rocketman) and Lucy Boynton (Bohemian Rhapsody) have been announced as the stars of a stunning new virtual reality (VR) experience - Glimpse.

Written and directed by Academy Award winning writer-director Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer, Wave) and VR creator Michael O'Connor, Glimpse will have its world-first preview at the 76th Venice Film Festival, entered in the Venice Virtual Reality Interactive showcase, from 29 August to 7 September, ahead of its 2020 premiere.

A highly emotive visual feast, Glimpse is set in the imaginative mind of a heartbroken panda, Herbie. Herbie (Egerton), is a talented illustrator who is going through a painful breakup from his girlfriend - a deer called Rice (Boynton), who dreams of becoming a musician.

A stunningly animated, interactive VR experience, Glimpse is a unique sensory and immersive experience which emulates the rawness of a breakup after falling in love. Embodying Herbie's point of view, Glimpse, takes us on an incredible visual journey back through the memories of his relationship, from the heart-breaking end, to the beautiful beginning. Along the way, expect star filled galaxies, hot air balloons, ethereal vistas and a song performed by Boynton as Rice the deer, just for us. Check out the trailer above.

  The Criterion Collection in November
  Up from the depths, twenty stories high, the Godzilla box set!
  The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are delighted to confirm the titles to be released on Blu-ray in November 2019.

25 November brings the highly anticipated GODZILLA - THE SHOWA-ERA FILMS, 1954–1975. Collected here for the first time are all fifteen Godzilla films of Japan's Showa era, in a landmark set showcasing the technical wizardry, fantastical storytelling, and indomitable international appeal that established the most iconic giant monster the cinema has ever seen.

On 11 November comes THE PALM BEACH STORY, featuring sparkling performances and a mix of the witty and the utterly absurd. The film is a high watermark of Director Preston Sturges's brand of physical comedy and verbal repartee.

On 18 November Wes Anderson's MOONRISE KINGDOM is released. Featuring a stellar cast, this charming, bittersweet tale follows two twelve-year-olds, Sam and Suzy, as they fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness.

  The Day Shall Come [read more]
  Make your own terrorist
  Before you can win the war on terror you need a terrorist - even if you have to invent one yourself. Moses Al Shabaz (Marcha´nt Davis) is a small-time Miami street preacher whose far-fetched revolutionary ideas find unexpected legitimacy when a Middle Eastern terrorist organization offers to help fund his dream of overthrowing the US government. The problem? His backer is the US government and it's all part of an elaborate scheme to entrap Moses and make his arrest the latest national security "win." But when Moses doesn't take the bait, FBI agent Kendra Glack (Anna Kendrick) must resort to increasingly outlandish - and risky - lengths to get her man. Crackling with fast-and- furious one-liners, the new film from button-pushing comedic renegade Chris Morris (Four Lions) is an audacious, bitingly hilarious takedown of our political theater of the absurd.

Following its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, THE DAY SHALL COME will be released in select US theaters and VOD on September 27th. Watch the trailer at the link.

  Deal or no deal
  Artist and filmmaker Philipp Humm is excited to announce that The Last Faust, starring British screen and theatre icon Steven Berkoff, (Octopussy, The Tourist, Harvey, Shakespeare's Villians) will be released on VoD on 18th November. The film will premiere in London and Berlin on November 13 and 14.

This 108 minute arthouse feature film is the only definitive filmed version of Goethe's epic drama, Faust 1&2, making the release a world first. The film is a vital component of Humm's Gesamtkunstwerk (Total-Works-of-Art) and offers an unparalleled artistic examination of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragic masterpiece. Humm's Total-Works-of-Art, which has been compared to Matthew Barney's iconic Cremaster Cycle, is composed of 150 works of art, including bronze sculptures, fine art photographs, oil and watercolour paintings and an illustrated novella. This vast and multifaceted collection of artwork is due to be exhibited in 2020. Try the trailer at the link.

I am so proud of all the cast and crew who did such epic work for this film by going above and beyond. We have achieved so much over the last four years and I am seriously forever grateful. They believed in my film and trusted in me, and joined me on my journey to make this story of one homeless boy. Each person living homeless has a story and deserves to be heard. They are homeless, not invisible. I met many of them living on the streets of London whilst researching for this film. It is dedicated to them. I am so proud of all the cast, crew and supporters who have done such epic work for this film by going above and beyond to tell this story." Trailer's above.

  Child's Play on DVD and digital
  Mind of a toy
  Chucky - the classic killer doll and horror icon - gets a 21st century upgrade in this critically acclaimed, razor sharp horror-comedy. Gruesome, creepy, and with a great cast - including Mark Hamill as the voice of the Buddi doll Chucky - Child's Play is bloody good fun and charged with electric, retro cool.

For fans of old school slasher horror, Child's Play is like a knife plunged straight into the nostalgic pleasure zones. But the all-new Child's Play is wickedly smart too. Chucky gets an upgrade in every way possible. He's hardwired with plenty of heart, and he's fully smart and WiFi-ready, which takes the horror - and hilarity - into new tech-savvy territory.

Child's Play will be available to buy on Digital download from 11th October and to buy on DVD and Digital Rental from 21st October.

  Holding out for a Western
  Set in the American West during the 1940s, Comes a Horseman centres on a pair of little-guy ranchers (Jane Fonda and James Caan) who join forces against the depredations of a ruthless land baron (Jason Robards) determined to expand his empire at any cost.

On 16 September 2019 the BFI brings Alan J Pakula's (All the President's Men, Sophie's Choice) singular western to Blu-ray for the first time in the UK. Special features include a new audio commentary, a Guardian Interview with the director and an interview with Jane Fonda filmed at BFI Southbank in 2018.

Shot by the incomparable Gordon Willis, with music by the great Michael Small, Comes a Horseman features an indelible performance from long-time stuntman Richard Farnsworth, which garnered him a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination in 1978.
