Congrats to Christian McLaughlin and Charlie Cattrall, producer and director respectively of the excellent Titus. If you missed it at Raindance and Dinard you can catch it November 24 at the Barbican in London as part of the Jazz festival.
Comment on: eOne tops £100m at UK box office
While it is accurate to say eOne are the second independent distributor to hit £100 million in the UK in a box office year it should, perhaps, be noted that Entertainment did it twice, in both 2002 and 2003, with 2002 actually being the bigger with £149.2 million and EFD actually the #1 distributor in the UK that year.
Comment on: Pixar answers Ken Loach appeal
This is the best story i've read all month. Pixar coming to the aid of Mr Loach is brilliant. Love it!
Comment on: Hayao Miyazaki to retire
Don't automatically despair too much people. Miyazaki did also announce his retirement after Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle.

Perfect choice of image
Comment on: Moo Man hits Kickstarter target
Good news, a fun doc and on the eve of Sheffield Doc/Fest it's great to see a doc find a new way to get into cinemas
Comment on: Zach Braff turns to Kickstarter
Based on the update here at top of page it looks like a lot withdrew as it's currently at $1.4m, but even if not raised as fast as Veronica Mars it's clearly going to get there (a huge amount of crowdfunding happens in the last 48 hours, especially if full amount not raised) and he's 70% there with 29 days to go. Braff's got more than a million followers on twitter. Even if half pledged just $2 he'd be halfway to his target. This is a sure fire way to raise money if you've got a low budget and an established director and/or cast involved. It's also a smart use of the video message, especially the Jim Parsons bit, reach out to those legion of Big Bang fans too.
Comment on: WestEnd takes Kwanten leap
Best headline ever. Love it!
It simply had to be. I've been telling everyone this would happen since Mike's announcement two weeks back. Right person for the job, Screen is in great hands. Congratulations Wendy.
