Meet Pete’s Dragon

One of the films I’m most intrigued about this year is the remake of Pete’s Dragon.

Based on the 1977 Disney film, the remake is directed by David Lowery.

The film will blend live action and CGI to tell the story of the special bond between an orphaned boy, Pete, and his best friend, Elliott, who just happens to be a dragon.

Films to watch out for in 2016

The start of a new year always prompts me to take a look at some of the cinematic offerings our local multiplexes will have on offer over the next 12 months.

This is a rundown of the film’s I’m looking forward to in the coming year. NB, I’ve only chosen films which have confirmed UK release dates.

From Captain America v Iron Man to the first Star Wars spin-off via Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in a musical, hopefully there’s a film here to pique your interest.

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.

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.
