The much loved underwater animation features the unforgettable Marlin, his forgetful friend Dory and the lovable young Nemo as they return to the big screen making a splash in spectacular 3D.
Follow the momentous journey as never seen before in 3D as an overprotective clownfish named Marlin (voiced by ALBERT BROOKS) and his young son Nemo (ALEXANDER GOULD) become separated in the Great Barrier Reef when Nemo is unexpectedly taken far, far away from his ocean home to a fish tank in a dentist’s office.
Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (ELLEN DEGENERES), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son. Teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, this awe-inspiring adventure was first released in cinemas in 2003 and won an Oscar® for ‘Best Animated Feature Film’.
Finding Nemo 3D is available from 29 March 2013
The crit: “An elite FBI squad are caught in an intense game of cat and mouse against four of the world’s greatest illusionists. Pulling off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, they shower the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.”

Our fingers are but a blur as we excitedly fumble our way towards getting this little news story up online, but we are delighted to announce that the first teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 is out there on the web. Obviously there’s not much in the way of content (seeing as this ridiculously anticipated sequel won’t start filming later this year) but here’s a glorious look at the world’s favourite news team. Now go find the nearest human being and start quoting Ron Burgundy at them..
We absolutely can’t wait to see Ted. It’s the story of Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) a regular guy who falls in love with a girl (Mila Kunis). The thing is, he’s constantly dogged by a rather special friend – a hard-drinking, pot-smoking teddy bear that came to life as a result of a childhood wish and just won’t leave.
It’s starting to look a bit like a real-life Family Guy as it’s written and directed by Seth MacFarlane (who also provides Ted’s voice) and Kunis is also a Family Guy series regular as Meg, so it’s not surprising that she’s showing up here too. It’s got potential to be absolutely hilarious as you can see from both the red band and the green band trailers below. Ted hits our screens on the 3rd August.
Can you say “KABOOOOOM!!!”? Introduced by Sly himself (who seems to have some trouble getting the name of his movie right), it’s big it’s loud, it’s got massive explosions, it’s got more testosterone than you can waggle a bicep at, it’s got Jason Statham delivering some great one-liners (“I now pronounce yo “Man and Knife”") – it’s the full-length trailer for The Expendables 2.
Enough talk – more action – check it out below.
But wait…haven’t they left some people out?
Check out the character posters too.
With Avengers Assemble being the superhero film to beat this year, everyone else has got a lot of work to do. Well the main trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man has just swung in and with a few weeks to go before it hits the big screen what can we learn?
It’s been clear from the start that Webb’s version was always going to have a darker tone that the Raimi incarnations. Consequently all the clips we’ve seen so far have a murkier colour palette. With the darkening that 3D glasses add to the experience, it seems it might be difficult to make out anything at all. But that’s not all, with great power apparently comes great angst and Webb appears to be playing that up with a greater focus on Spider-Man’s lost parents (the tacit understanding in the Spidey universe is that Peter Parker was raised by his Uncle and Aunt).
It’s an interesting angle to take though. Marvel have so far been about bright and colourful characters and left the moodiness to Chris Nolan and the Batman franchise. Can Spider-Man pull it off too?
Why does every superhero gain the uncanny ability to sew when they receive their powers? Not really sure what we think of the textured effect on the suit. It looks good in stills but moving about, Peter does look a bit like the world’s most agile condom. Ribbed for her pleasure? Eeeew.
It’s also the first time we get a look at the Lizard who…uh…frankly just looks indistinguishable from Killer Croc. That doesn’t bode well for a captivated villain although I have to say it does look better than the first Spider-Man’s Green Goblin.
The city does look impressive though. Eschewing Raimi’s brownstone aesthetic, Webb has instead gone for an ultra-modern look which looks spectacular – all shiny glass and night-time neon lights.
Spidey’s going to be using his traditional mechanical web-shooters that he had in the comics but they looks like glorified children’s toys. Frankly, I never saw a problem with the biological ones in the first place – surely that was a sensible retcon for something the original writers forgot to write in in the first place? Ah well, look forward to those being in all good toys shops not long after the release.
Anyway, enough griping. There’s actually some rather impressive action set pieces – a vertiginious skyscraper chase with the lizard, Spidey dangling a burning car off a bridge. Check it out for yourself and see what you think.
It looks like new Brit comedyA Few Best Men, from the pen of Dean Craig (Death At A Funeral) and megaphone of Stephan Elliot (The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert), is going to have a stab though.
It sees Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga’s Riley) as David, a young lad who’s getting married in Australia.
Determined to give him a send-off of a lifetime, his best mates Graham (Kevin Bishop), Luke (Tim Draxl) and Tom (Kris Marshall – he of My Family and those depressing BT Home Hub adverts), stage the most outrageous stag night they can conjure.
Cue much drinking, some drug abuse, a cross-dressed sheep, a gimp mask and a coked-up Olivia Newton John.
“Coked-up Olivia Newton John” – not a phrase I’d ever thought I’d write. It’s certainly got my attention though.
It’s out on August 31st.
See what you think:
If you’re worried about spoilers, it might be wise to give this a miss as your monitor and speakers definitely aren’t going to do it justice.
We get a better look at Tom Hardy as Bane (and is that fear on Bruce Wayne’s face? Surely not!) – and he now rumbles his lines much more audibly than he did in past trailers (could Warners have tidied the audio up by any chance?). There’s also some more from Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle and a few lines from Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Batman himself seems to show no signs of laying off the gravel cocktails and will likely be continuing down the path to full on Strepsil addiction. There’s plenty of things that go boom (alarmingly) and an appearance of a certain Bat-vehicle…
As far as superhero flicks go, it’s Avengers Assemble that’s the one to beat at the moment. But as this is a whole together…um…darker outing for costumed crusaders, it can probably find its own niche.
Christian Bale leads an all-star cast with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Marion Cotillard. It’s out July 20th. Put it in your diary.
A remake of the 1976 film inspired by the story of The Supremes, Sparkle centres on three singing teenage sisters from Harlem who form a girl group in the late 1950s. This remake moves it forward to 1960s Detroit during the Motown era.
While it looks like a fairly familiar story – balancing the pressures of fame and romance, the big draw here will be the last on-screen appearance of the late great Whitney Houston, who finished filming three months before her untimely death. Houston will play the mother of the girls - American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter. Expect some big belting songs and I would wager, fairly sentimental drama.
It’s out on October 5th.
Jason Segel and Emily Blunt star in The Five-Year Engagement, a comedy in which a couple’s marriage is constantly postponed on the way to the altar. Encouragingly it’s produced by the team behind Bridesmaids and written by Jason Segel himself (who was instrumental in bringing The Muppets to the big screen).
On first glance though, it doesn’t look that funny – a few mild gags about masturbation, male faked orgasm and an odd bit with a mustachioed Jason Segel dressed up as a bunny. Still, Jason Segel is extremely likable as is Emily Blunt (she made last week’s Salmon Fishing In The Yemen more bearable), so it might be worth a look but it hardly has us rolling on the office floor.
