Splintered Cinema News

New Han Solo solo picture
Disney developing a live-action movie
Battle of Britain at the battle
Terminator is terminated

The creators of the Lego Movie have been drafted in by Disney to come up with a series of films based around the popular character from Star Wars, Han Solo. There is no word yet on who will be cast as the hero but hot favourite has to be Chris Pratt, who not only performed the voice for the hero of the Lego Movie but is also enjoying huge box office success with Jurassic World. He is hot property and has the charisma necessary for such an iconic character. No word yet on any involvement from Harrison Ford.

Fresh from success for Maleficent and Cinderella, Disney are now developing a live-action version of Prince Charming. I wonder if they'll do a live action version of The Black Cauldron or Oliver and Company?

The Battle of Britain museum in Hawkinge Kent will be hosting a Splintered Cinema event in September. The pop-up cinema company will be showing The Battle of Britain and notably it will be shown at a location used in the movie. Keep checking here for details of the date and time.

Terminator: Genisys has failed at the box-office, being beaten by a Pixar picture and the Jurassic dinosaurs. Falling on the back of average to terrible reviews, the fifth film in the franchise has not lived up to expectation or benefited from the return of Mr T-800 himself. Needless to say, from this writers point of view, the trailer pretty much told you everything that was going to happen. When will studios learn that audiences actually enjoy being surprised?

Splintered Cinema is a pop-up cinema event company run by Zac Thraves; please call if you wish to book for parties and events. Fees negotiable. 

(Zac Thraves is currently reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy and drinking Old Speckled Hen.)
