Legend & The Visit plus lots more…
Popcorn Cinema Show takes a look at the movies released this week (September 11 2015) for the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand at the cinema, plus all weeks film news. If you fancy a British gangster film then check out Tom Hardy in Legend as both of the Kray twins. Elsewhere M. Night Shyamala returns with The Visit, but now for something completely different…
Not too much in the way of film news or interesting news anyway but here is what little there is:
Sienna Miller NOT in Black Mass???
The director of the new Johnny Depp film Black Mass confirms that Sienna Miller scenes have been cut from the movie reports the Boston Globe. Director Scott Cooper said “It came down to narrative choices”
Terry Gilliam NOT Dead!!!
Variety made a mistake by reporting Monty Python star & director Terry Gilliam had died when in fact he is alive. Good to see he took it in typical Monty Python humour posting on facebook
“I APOLOGIZE FOR BEING DEAD especially to those who have already bought tickets to the upcoming talks, but, Variety has announced my demise. Don’t believe their retraction and apology!”
