Fans of the Ford Mustang will have their personal favourites of course, but in this infographic are the very best, most iconic appearances by the car, creating the definitive list of the top Ford Mustang Movie Stars.

Writer-director Keith Sutliff’s The Mason Brothers will get a theatrical release, beginning in Los Angeles, April 14.  The film, about a group of outlaws that attempt to reveal their brothers killer from a neighboring gang after being set up during a bank heist, features Brandon Pearson, Matthew Webb, Michael Whelan, Julien Cesario, Chris Park (Sons of Anarchy), Nazo Brava and Sutliff, who also makes his directorial debut on the KS PICTURES LLC release.

THEIR FINEST, based on Lissa Evans’ novel, ‘Their Finest Hour and a Half’, is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and her voice, in the mayhem of war… and the movies.  1940, London, the Blitz; with the country’s morale at stake, Catrin (Gemma Arterton), an untried screenwriter, and a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits; and inspire America to join the war. Partnered with fellow writer, Buckley (Sam Claflin), the pair, along with fading matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard (Bill Nighy), reluctantly joins forces on a movie to warm the hearts of the nation and capture the imagination of the US public.

With just over a week until the release of Viceroy’s House on March 3rdPathé is pleased to make available a brand new clip featuring Hugh Bonneville, Michael Gambon and Simon Callow.  The clock is ticking until India wins its independence from British rule and Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville), General Hastings Ismay (Michael Gambon) and Cyril Radcliffe (Simon Callow) face the difficult task of deciding where India and Pakistan’s borders will lie.

Part Two of The Get Down picks up in 1978, one year after the events of Part One. The sweeping upheaval of late 70s New York City finds an as-yet-unnamed new pop cultural force striking a new beat in the Bronx, while disco still reigns supreme. Our young lovers Books and Mylene are caught in the swirl of a looming cultural revolution destined to change everything about their world – but they have this moment to make their mark. Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it’s only their creativity and love that will carry them through — and that they’ll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other.

A transformative and exquisite creation by Anna Biller (who directed, produced, wrote, edited, scored and designed every aspect), this gorgeous-looking tribute to 1960s/70s low-budget horrors, classic American soap operas, Technicolor melodramas and vintage sexploitation aesthetics is an affectionate masterful pastiche with a deft feminist bite. Think Russ Meyer meets Douglas Sirk and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls via ‘Charmed’ and ‘Dynasty’ as lovelorn young witch Elaine (a stunning Samantha Robinson) uses spells and potions to bring her everlasting romantic happiness. Finally meeting her dream man, Elaine’s desperation to be loved drives her to the brink of insanity and murder.

Freedom is defined as the power of self-determination attributed to the will; the quality of being independent of fate or necessity, as Olympic freestyle skier Jossi Wells learns when he partners with The Flying Frenchies for the adventure of a lifetime in breathtaking documentary THE FREE MAN, available digitally from April 10th and on DVD from April 24th.


That’s your lot for now, more soon enough.
