Backwards trailer (2012)

To get into the Olympics spirit, especially after a superb Super Saturday and great week overall for Team GB, take a look at this new trailer for Backwards from relatively unknown director Ben Hickernell.

The story is simple, it focuses on Abi Brooks (Sarah Megan Thomas) who fails to make it into the USA rowing team for the upcoming Olympics and it forced to find employment elsewhere. When a job comes up to coach at a school, he struggles to adjust to life outside of the water.

Starring James Van Der Beek, Glenn Morshower and Margaret Colin, this is bound to be a hit before it’s even released with Olympic fever sweeping this country and the world. Watch, enjoy and Keep It Reel.

Man of Steel – trailer (2013)

Christopher Nolan appears to be on a superhero bent. The end of his Batman trilogy is still fresh in the minds of the public and here we are, the trailer for the highly anticipated Superman reboot, Man of Steel. Now an attempt was made to reboot this Superman franchise in 2006, it was met with poor reviews, fans hating the film and most people wanting to forget about and who can blame them? The best part of that film was seeing a slow motion shot being fired at Superman and the bullet squashing on his eye. As amazing as that looked, everything else was sub-par at best. With Zack Snyder at the directors wheel and Christopher Nolan’s creative input as producer, I have faith that this could be the start of something great, something wonderful, something super.

Man of Steel

The FrightFest line-up is here.

The line-up for the FrightFest has been announced and it’s a rather gruesome and gory list of all that is scary! This year at Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, the legendary master of gore Dario Argento will be joining Total Film on stage during the festival, so it sounds like it will be one hell of a long weekend. FrightFest is on from August 24th to 27th and will feature several new horror films including 15 world premiers. See below for the terrifying image and full line-up!
