: “Bringing in new entrants is less of a problem than we might think, because it’s 50/50 – women ARE coming in, they’re not being put off. The industry is not simply “not selecting” women at all, it’s that women have a harder time than men.”
Yes, you've read that right.

The first trailer is finally here for the spin-off of the Harry Potter series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In the upcoming fantasy film based on J.K. Rowling's book of the same name, the story focuses on Newt Scamander. Newt arrives in New York city at the Magical Congress of United States of America, where upon he mistakenly unleashes his monsters from his expandable briefcase.
With the American wizarding authorities out to capture him, Newt must claim back his monsters and return the wizarding and muggle world back to normal.
Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt, alongside Samantha Morton, Ron Perlman and Jon Voight.
Directed by David Yates and screenplay written by J.K. Rowling, Fantastic beasts and Where to Find Them will be released internationally in November 2016.
As a huge Pixar fan I was very excited for this film as the idea was unique and the concept art looked beautiful. I was not disappointed by the trailer with the long awaited introduction of dinosaur Arlo and his human side-kick Spot.
Arlo is unlike the rest of his dinosaur family - he is nervous and scared of most things. When he falls into a river and carried far away from home, Arlo must confront everything that he is scared of to find his way to his family. With the help of his new human friend Spot, they must learn the true meaning of family and facing your fears.
As beautiful as the animation is (even the small details can't go unnoticed here, truly breathtaking), Pixar's latest film The Good Dinosaur unfortunately doesn't deliver the same emotional punch as their previous films.
Don't get me wrong, there are some tear-jerking moments here, but the opportunity for an exciting and terrifying adventure seems to have been lost. The Good Dinosaur was supposedly plagued by production problems, with the story going through some serious rewrites and original director Bob Peterson removed from the film just last summer.
I can't help but feel that The Good Dinosaur falls short on the most fundamental part of storytelling - the story. Yes the characters are endearing and the animation is its usual Pixar perfection, but the story seems rather bare. The characters however are as memorable as ever, with Arlo, Butch the T-rex and Arlo's Poppa Henry stealing the show. Perhaps with a few more interesting plot points The Good Dinosaur would have really hit the mark, because the animation is some of the best they've ever done. I dare you to watch this film and not be moved by the animation with the atmospheric score.
My rating: 6/10
The Good Dinosaur is directed by Peter Sohn and stars Raymond Ochoa, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright and Sam Elliott.
The Good Dinosaur is in cinemas now!
The official teaser trailer for Marvel's Captain America: Civil War is finally here and it looks just as epic as we had all hoped for!
The official premise is " After the events of Age of Ultron, another international incident involving Captain America and the Avengers results in collateral damage, prompting politicians to form a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to call in the Avengers. This results in the fracturing of the team while they attempt to protect the world from a new enemy."
The trailer has a lot of new footage not seen before, and makes it clear that Bucky and Steve are a force to be reckoned with. With Steve (Captain America) and Tony (Iron Man) on opposing sides of the law, and their fellow Avengers forced to choose, will they be able to save the world without destroying each other?
Civil War features an ensemble cast, including new faces such as Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen), Vision (Paul Bethany) and Antman (Paul Rudd).
Whose side will you be on?
Civil War will be released on May 6 2016.
