What Happened To Monday leads the new cinema releases and trailers August 18th 2017

What Happened To Monday This week, there are EIGHT new films out for you to choose from: Noomi Rapace goes on the run in What Happened To Monday, there’s sweary comedy with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson in The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Idris Elba goes up against Matthew McConaughey in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, there’s nothing worth watching in Everything Everything, there’s bizarre Spanish horror in The Untamed, Jacques Cousteau goes on a journey of his lifetime in The Odyssey, Geoffrey Rush is artist Alberto Giacometti in Final Portrait, and Al Gore talks out of his backside again in An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.

What Happened To Monday is a sci-fi actioner set in the not too distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy”. As such, seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau.

This alternative CAB, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday – each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home…

Dunkirk 1958 – September Screening On The Beach at Camber Sands

Dunkirk

The State: Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 Drama

The State The State is a new drama from Peter Kosminsky (Wolf Hall, 2011’s The Promise) about those wanting to join ISIS, aka the Islamic State.

So, straight away, you know this is going to be different from most dramas, and for such an intense one, Channel 4 have done the right thing in airing this nightly over four consecutive nights, and I wish channels would do this with more dramas. Yes, the conventional way is broadcast one episode a week, but in an age of streaming and wanting to get to the next episode as quickly as possible – C4’s contribution to that being the Walter Presents series of dramas – nightly is the best option we’ll get on a mainstream channel.

Clash on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Clash

Clash has nothing to do with the popular London band during the ’70s and ’80s, but is more a clash of cultures and beliefs, and shows quite a rarity in filmmaking in that the entirety of the movie is set in a single location, in this case, a van. The easiest way to set the scene is to give the film’s own opening text:

  • 2011 – The Egyptian revolution ends a 30-year presidency

The Hunt on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Lucas finds out It’s a Mads, Mads, Mads, Mads World…

The Hunt

The Hunt centres around Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a middle-aged man who’s divorced and hardly sees his son and who could really use a break in life, but at least he has some good friends and colleagues… at first.

An innocent moment he’d rather forget happens while he’s working at the nursery, which leads to one child making a false allegation of inappropriate behaviour. Working in an establishment like that, theoretically, he could have any number of accusers, so I don’t want to say who or what is alleged since, while I knew the basics prior to watching this, I didn’t know the details which I’m therefore not listing here. Suffice to say, it all serves a shocking blow.

Agents Of Mayhem on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Agents Of Mayhem

Agents Of Mayhem: Some games consider themselves serious and some games don’t. This one slides straight into the latter category. From the publishers of the classic Saints Row series – one for which I haven’t played much – we have Agents Of Mayhem, which I personally feel should be Donald Trump’s political party name.

(DVDfever Dom: Certainly when the Republicans kick him out and he has to form an independent party!)

What Happened To Monday – The DVDfever Cinema / Netflix Review

What Happened To Monday What Happened To Monday? Usually, I’m more familiar with ‘What Happened to Saturday’ when I wake up at 4pm after a night out in Manchester… but I digress.

Set in the 2073, the world has become a futuristic North Korea where overpopulation and famine have led to drastic measures with children being exterminated if you have more then one – although the government claim they’re being put into cryosleep until the world’s problems can be resolved.

As head of the alternative CAB, the Child Allocation Bureau, Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), sets out the “One Child Policy”, which is a bit of a problem for their grandfather Terrence Settman (Willem Dafoe) who has seven bundles of joy to deal with, so he gives them the names of the days of the week
