Unless you have been to a galaxy far far away, you will know the new Star Wars movie is out now. Yes it’s had the premiere and now you can go and see it in a theatre near you. This is of course the fourth film in the franchise (I don’t acknowledge the prequels) but if you do it’s the seventh!


Point Break Embargoed?

The report that remake/reboot of Point Break, due to be released Christmas Day in the US, has had a press screening cancelled. Not only that but reviewers have apparently had an embargo placed on them until the opening day 25th December 12:01 a.m. PT
