We get sent a lot of film treats here at BRWC, so here’s a place we can share them with you.  They’ll be clips, trailers, images and posters, links and all sorts.  Enjoy.


A fan of Close Encounters of the Third Kind has created an 8-bit video to celebrate the 40th anniversary… and it’s awesome!!  Close Encounters of the Third Kind is out now on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray.



Predator will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from 9 November 2017.  Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger) leads an elite squad of U.S. Army commandos to a remote region of the South American jungle, where they have been assigned to search for officials who have been kidnapped by guerrilla terrorists.

Blur the lines of reality this Halloween night with a celebration of not just a cult classic, but the life of a true anime auteur. Striking and provocative, the return of Satoshi Kon’s debut film “Perfect Blue” is a 20th anniversary event not to be missed.

Salim Shaheen is the ‘Prince Of Nothingwood’, the most popular and prolific actor-director-producer in Afghanistan. Over the past thirty years he has been tirelessly making, starring in and distributing movies despite the country’s ongoing war.  With Shaheen about to embark on his 111th no-budget feature – a film about his own escapades – Sonia Kronlund joined him, and his regular troupe of actors, on a filmmaking adventure to the traditional heartland of Afghanistan.  The result is a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of Shaheen’s life and work, the art of filmmaking in a war zone and a thoroughly entertaining portrait of this larger-than-life, ebullient character who spends his life making his childhood dreams come true.



Newly Single is the second feature film by American writer/director Adam Christian Clark. After the successful run of his first film, Caroline and Jackie (Tribeca, 2012), Clark began assembling his next feature, Aaron Baby Superfecta. With considerably more money and A-list talent, Clark was on the verge of the next big step in his career. But when several lead actors dropped out, the financing fell apart, and the film collapsed. Clark found himself newly single, laid-off from a long-term TV directing job, and engulfed in a downward spiral of enthusiastic drinking and restless dating. On the verge of financial collapse and eviction, Clark doubled down, writing and directing the meta-dark-comedy Newly Single. Loosely inspired by recent events in his life, Adam Christian Clark also stepped in front of the camera for the first time to play the bitter and broken Astor Williams Stevenson…

November on Horror Channel has a distinctive cutting-edge with a Saturday night prime-time BLOODY BRITISH SEASON, celebrating the new wave of British horror movies that reinvigorated the UK horror industry in the early 2000s. There are 9pm network premieres for Neil Marshall’s sensational werewolf debut feature DOG SOLDIERS (2002) (Sat 11 Nov); his monstrous all-female star cast follow-up THE DESCENT (2005) (Sat 25 Nov), Christopher Smith’s underground ghost train journey through hell, CREEP (2004) (Sat 18 Nov); and Nick Hamm’s psychologically gripping THE HOLE (2001) (Sat 4 Nov), with Keira Knightley in her first significant film role.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.

WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and moving story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.

Absinthe plays homage to the beautiful black and white old Hollywood stories and shares actual quotes from legends including James Brown, Janis Joplin, Frida Khalo and Marilyn Monroe. This avant-garde film stars two of France’s most beloved actresses Oscar-nominee Marie-Christine Barrault and Cesar-nominee Brigitte Fossey, as well as American actor Larry Cech. The film was directed by Michelle Figlarz and produced by Larry Cech, Raul Torres and Monica Cooper.
