It's getting close to March which means the final time we will see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and as sad as that sounds it looks like we are going to get an incredible film to wrap it up for him. Take a look below at the final LOGAN Trailer.
At first glance, the idea of Natalie Portman playing Jackie Kennedy seems like stunt casting. Although she has played numerous roles in her long career, nothing about Portman suggests the former First Lady. The process of using a well-known movie actor to play another famous person is always something of a trick. The substitution of one famous set of features for another requires the skill of the filmmaker and the suspension of an audience’s disbelief. It helps if there is some similarity in the shape of the face. Faye Dunaway eventually morphs into Joan Crawford in MOMMIE DEAREST (1981).
Alongside the highly anticipated release of Beauty and The Beast comes the announcement of an upcoming live-action film of Dumbo by Tim Burton.
With 2016 behind us it’s time for some reflection on favourite films that cropped up over the last twelve months, and as per usual it’s been a difficult process of culling them all down to just ten.

It is the future. Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), a passenger on the spaceship Avalon, wakes up from his sleep pod. The ship is on a 120 year journey to a colonisation planet called Homestead 2. The Avalon is a state-of-the-art sleep ship with 5000 passengers in a state of suspended animation. Jim’s pod has malfunctioned and he has woken 90 years early. The pod is constructed to keep Jim asleep, but not to put him back under if he wakes up. As the ship’s computer explains to him, it is impossible for a sleep pod to malfunction.
