Matthew McConaughey – his reaction to Star Wars teaser #2 – Interstellar spoof

Matthew McConaugheyMatthew McConaughey recently starred as astronaut Cooper looking for life on the other side of godknowswhere in Christopher Nolan’s epic space movie Interstellar, and another epic space movie is coming out later this year – Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, the second trailer for which was released recently.

There’s a certain scene in Interstellar which I won’t spoil here, but which sees Cooper behaving as he does in this video from oskararnarson, which twists it to make it look like he’s watching the Star Wars trailer.

It’s very cleverly done and I highly recommend it. Check out Matthew Mcconaughey’s reaction to Star Wars teaser #2 below:

MrBossFTW – the world’s stupidest Youtuber has GTA V PC Key stolen during live stream

MrBossFTW

MrBossFTW is one of a number of Youtubers who not only upload gaming footage of titles such as GTA V, but also streams it online live via services such as Twitch. However, I couldn’t see the point of live-streaming…. the installation.

Yes, you can watch him INSTALL the game. Fascinating!

Over the course of 35-40 minutes as he did this, he didn’t realise that his Steam key briefly flashed up onscreen, so when it came to finally authentice it… someone had already seen it, nicked it and authenticated it on THEIR machine! So all that money was wasted. D’oh!

Our review of GTA V on PC will be online soon, but in the meantime, check out the poor unfortunate MrBossFTW below…

W1A Series 2 Trailer – BBC Two – Hugh Bonneville comedy

W1A Series 2W1A Series 2 returns to BBC2 next week and as the recent teaser confirms, this new series will DEFINITELY be on BBC2, even if PR guru Siobhan Sharpe Jessica Hynes isn’t quite sure.

W1A is the the postcode of BBC Broadcasting House and the series will again be written by John Morton, and features the wonderful Hugh Bonneville, returning as the incompetent former head of the Olympic Deliverance Commission Ian Fletcher.

W1A is the sequel to BBC2′s acclaimed comedy Twenty Twelve and the cast also includes Monica Dolan (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa), Jason Watkins (Psychoville), Hugh Skinner, Nina Sosanya and Sarah Parish and W1A Series 2 begins on Thursday next week at 9pm for a one-hour special, following the next Thursday with a regular slot of 10pm (and pushing the final Inside No.9 to the day before). So that’s all good.

The Salvation and Glassland lead the new cinema releases & trailers – w/e April 17th 2015

the-salvationThis weekend there are six new films out for you to choose from: Western action in The Salvation, strong drama in Glassland, war-time drama in Child 44, medieval action (we’re covering all the historical periods here!) in Last Knights, period comedy/drama in A Little Chaos and musical tripe in The Last Five Years.

The Salvation shows that you can do a Western in late 19th Century that doesn’t have Seth McFarlane trying to make an unfunny pile of tosh out of it.

We’re in 1870s America and a peaceful American settler kills his family’s murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader. His cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone.

There’s a great cast here, including Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green (Sin City 2), Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Eric Cantona, Mikael Persbrandt, Douglas Henshall and Jonathan Pryce, and it’s directed by Kristian Levring.

The Salvation looks well worth a watch. It’s also only a spritely 92 minutes, which is unusual for a Western, as they usually last about 3 years.

Hit or Miss? Verdict:

Movie Charts – UK & US – w/e April 12th 2015

April 12th 2015This week’s Movie Chart for the UK w/e April 12th 2015 is as follows:

Danny Collins – Official Trailer #1 – Al Pacino, Jennifer Garner Movie HD

danny-collinsDanny Collins stars Al Pacino in the titular role as as aging 1970s rocker who can’t give up his hard-living ways, that is until he discovers a 40-year-old letter written to him by John Lennon, and brought to him by his manager (Christopher Plummer).

At that point, he decides to change course and embarks on a heartfelt journey to rediscover his family, find true love and begin a second act.

From that point, the trailer makes it turn into a bit of a bog-standard rom-com where he’s trying to romance Annette Bening, and the film also stars Jennifer Garner, Christopher Plummer, Josh Peck and Bobby Cannavale.

Danny Collins is released in the UK on May 29th and looks okay, but nothing special.

The Delivery Man Series 1 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

the-delivery-man-a

the-delivery-manThe Delivery Man had a fair bit to live up to, following on from the first new episode of Newzoids, and ITV’s track record of sitcoms shows that for every The Job Lot, there are several instances of Babes In The Wood, Brighton Belles and Duck Patrol

The premise is that Matthew Bunting (Darren Boyd, right) has had a mid-life crisis and changed careers from being a cop to being a midwife (cue lame jokes about the fact he’s a man but the job role is a ‘wife’). Twice, his police ex-partner Ian (Paddy McGuinness) turned up for no apparent reason, confirming the suspicion that the police do as little work as possible.

Newzoids Series 1 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

newzoids

newzoids-ed-milibandNewzoids sounded like a disaster on paper, but was a pleasant surprise by comparison.

Anyone who was around in the ’80s will remember Spitting Image, where the politicians and celebs of the day were lampooned with latex puppets. It lost it towards the end, in the early ’90s, partly due to the fact that there just weren’t the big figures of the day that there used to be. Newzoids shows that it’s good to rest these things from time to time and is a format that is simplistic, but one which really works.

The highlight was Ant and Dec putting Labour leader Ed Miliband (right) through an I’m A Celebrity-style challenge, referencing the old bacon sandwich photo – getting him to eat one properly this time, but also pointing out how he doesn’t know which way to turn, politically, and how he won’t be around for long if he doesn’t get to No.10.

Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens – Official Teaser Trailer #2 – Star Wars Movie HD

Star Wars Episode VII The Force AwakensStar Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens is due out in cinemas in December, and today sees the release of the second teaser trailer, just five months on from the first. Expect many more in the coming months.

This one features a crashed Super Star Destroyer Executor, owned by Darth Vader! There’s Darth Vader’s crushed mask! There’s flying X-wings! There’s explosions! There’s shooting! And there’s Han Solo and Chewy!!!

Ever-present Andy Serkis will be one of the newbies, alongside John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o and the awesome Max von Sydow. They will all be alongside Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker.
