Carrie Fisher to star in Catastrophe


Carrie Fisher will star in the new Channel 4 comedy from Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney.

She’ll play the eccentric mother of Delaney’s character.

The series follows a couple who struggle to fall in love in London and will also feature Ashley Jensen as Horgan’s ‘awful friend’.

McKellen and Stewart together again


Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart are to appear together on the London stage next year.

They will star in a revival of No Man’s Land – which they performed in rep I’m New York last year (and I was lucky enough to see).

The pair last appeared together on stage in London when they collaborated on Waiting For Godot in 2009.

No news yet on where and when they play will be staged.

Return to The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel


A brand new poster and trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel have been released.

Shaun the Sheep meets the Sundance Kid


The new Shaun The Sheep movie has been selected to screen as part of the Children’s Strand at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

The screening will mark the film’s US debut and it’s rare to see a British animation picked for the festival founded by Robert Redford.

I love the idea of such a British film playing in the snowy depths of Utah to bemused Hollywood execs.

Meanwhile a new poster for the film has been released – as you can see above.

The Shaun the Sheep Movie will be in UK cinemas on February 6.

Trailer time


Two big new trailers this week.

First, it’s the official trailer for Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent, starring Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet.

It’s due in UK cinemas on March 20.

San Andreas stars Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), Paul Giamatti and Archie Panjabi from The Good Wife.

It’s a disaster flick about a search and rescue helicopter pilot who has to make his way from LA to San Francisco to rescue his daughter after a huge earthquake.

The film’s due to be released in May.
