Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Mads Mikkelsen Reveals His Character In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

He'd previously gone as far as to say that he isn't playing a villain. Now Mads Mikkelsen has evaded the spoiler police once again and revealed a little bit more about his role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you consider such things to be spoilers, read no further, young Padawan.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer-

So Felicity Jones is playing a rebellious soldier called Jyn Erso, and it turns out that Mikkelsen's character has what you might call a blood tie to Jones'. "I read the script and it was very beautiful," Mikkelsen told Sky News, "and Felicity is playing this lovely, strong woman and I play her father." We still don't know his character's name, but we're going to hazard that "Erso" is in there somewhere. Mr Alan Erso, perhaps. Head of the PTA at Yavin High.

Extrapolating properly, we might surmise that Erso Sr. and his daughter are somewhat estranged, since we know from the trailer that Jyn brought herself up on her own from the age of 15. Or, on the other hand, that "beautiful" might suggest early scenes or flashbacks presenting happier times before Jyn was alone. Is it possible that something happens to him at the hands of the Imperials, sending Jyn on her journey towards the Rebellion? "That was too much," apologises Mikkelsen. But he really hasn't told us much at all...

Gareth Edwards finished cranking his cameras on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at the end of last year, with the post-production process now well underway.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
