    The HeyUGuys Interview: Emma Thompson & Celia Imrie on The Love Punch

    Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 10.34.32

    Having both made their fair share of profound, more sincere features, acting duo Emma Thompson and Celia Imrie are not offering something a little lighter with their latest offering The Love Punch – and we had the great pleasure of sitting down with the pair to discuss their work on the Joel Hopkins project. As […]



    The HeyUGuys Interview: Renowned Swedish filmmaker Lukas Moodyson discusses We Are The Best!

    we-are-the-best

    When settling in to watch a film taking place in 1980s Sweden, chronicling three young, teenage girls as they approach adolescence, you could be forgiven for expecting a picture that could be somewhat alienating to a large part of the potential audience – yet director Lukas Moodyson has created a feature with such broad appeal. […]



    The HeyUGuys Interview: Marc Webb on The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 11.20.00

    Though many had initially questioned the need for Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man trilogy, given how soon it arrived after Sam Raimi’s triumphant endeavour, the director has silenced many of his critics with yet another thoroughly entertaining blockbuster to match the first. We were lucky enough to sit down with Webb and discuss his work […]



    The Love Punch Review

    Pierce-Brosnan-and-Emma-Thompson-in-The-Love-Punch

    Though narrowly – and somewhat unfairly – missing out on an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of P.L. Travers in the brilliant Saving Mr. Banks, British actress Emma Thompson now returns with something a little lighter, but by no means more entertaining, as she stars alongside Pierce Brosnan in Joel Hopkins’ comedy caper, The Love […]



    Wrinkles Review

    Wrinkles

    Upon learning that a film is presented as an animation, you can’t help but assume the picture is targeting a younger crowd, hoping to win over both adults and children alike. However Ignacio Ferreras’ Wrinkles is certainly one for the former, as a poignant drama that handles a series of tragic themes, such as death, […]

The […]

    Having taken on a starring role in John Michael McDonagh’s debut feature The Guard, Irish actor Brendan Gleeson returns in the filmmaker’s sophomore endeavour, playing Father James Lavelle in Calvary. We were fortunate enough to discuss the role with the man himself, and how he went about combining the affable, endearing qualities to the character, […]



    The Lunchbox Review

    the-lunchbox-650

    Now I don’t know about you, but whenever I’ve succumbed to having a packed lunch, it’s consisted mainly of a ham sandwich, cheese and onion crisps and a satsuma, or banana if I’m lucky. Irrfan Khan’s Saajan Fernandes, on the other hand, is treated to a selection of the most aromatic, delectable of Indian courses […]



    The HeyUGuys Interview: Up & Coming Star Olivia Cooke on her Role in The Quiet Ones

Turning in a wonderful performance, the young actress discusses the fun the actors – including Jared Harris and Sam Claflin – had off-set and […]

    half-of-a-yellow-sun-001

    While many of us still look at Chiwetel Ejiofor and see the anguished, broken Solomon Northup, given his quite miraculous and sincere portrayal in Steve McQueen’s Oscar winning drama 12 Years a Slave, the British actor is now back on home soil promoting his latest production, taking a starring role in Biyi Bandele’s Half of […]



    The HeyUGuys Interview: Richard E. Grant on Khumba: A Zebra’s Tale

    Khumba

    It goes without saying that we were completely thrilled to be given the opportunity to email across some questions to British acting legend Richard E. Grant ahead of his role as Bradley the Ostrich in Anthony Silverston’s Khumba: A Zebra’s Tale. Though his answers are somewhat short and sweet to say the least, it’s always […]



    The HeyUGuys Interview: Director Gareth Evans and Star Iko Uwais Discuss The Raid 2

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

    Jamie-Foxx-and-Andrew-Garfield-in-The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2

    For all of the criticism that seemingly superfluous sequels, remakes and reboots receive, of which Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man trilogy came under great scrutiny, you simply can’t fault the superhero genre at present, with such a high calibre of production being churned out every few months. It seems to be a continuing trend, as […]

    While the feature film Divergent prepares for its cinematic release, it marks the beginning of an exciting new franchise, based on a series of young adult novels.
