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.


Johnny Macabre and TheBloodShed have announced the launch of www.IBleedIndie.com – a first of its kind VOD website dedicated to promoting American indie and international horror films.

In the tradition of The Evil Dead, and starring The Newsroom’s Margaret Judson and Teen Wolf’s Michael Johnston, writer/director Alexander Babaev‘s Bornless Ones comes to theaters and VOD February 10.



The Ealing Music & Film Festival returns in 2017 with a marvellous mix of music and film to entertain and lighten February’s dark days. Now in its fifth year our wonderful programme continues to celebrate Ealing’s cultural heart and in its aim to support the wealth of creative young artistic talent on our very own doorstep through outreach and scholarships.

Emmanuel Speaks has started 2017 strong with a powerful short film adaptation of the story-line presented by the debut EP by the spoken word artist, ‘Russian Roulette’.

The first great documentary of 2017 Do You Dream in Color gets February release.  The enlightening and poignant coming of age story that captures the inspired journeys of four courageous blind children, will be released on VOD February 10, with select theater engagements in the first part of 2017, from Uncork’d Entertainment.
 
New comedy Essex Spacebin is playing in a special double bill with Tromeo & Juliet in a Q&A with legendary horror director and Troma Entertainment founder Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger & Class of Nuke ‘Em High) at The Prince Charles Cinema on 18th February (released on the same day on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital)…

Here’s a new featurette for LIVE BY NIGHT, directed by and starring Ben Affleck alongside Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, and Oscar winner Chris Cooper.

In eager anticipation of the release of the critically acclaimed MANCHESTER BY THE SEA in cinemas next Friday 13 January, a new clip is above. Directed by Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me, Margaret)​​, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA has also been nominated for five Golden Globe® Awards including Best Motion Picture – Drama.

Freestyle Digital Media, the recently-acquired digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios has acquired the North American rights to the highly-anticipated horror feature VOODOO.  VOODOO debuts on VOD through Freestyle Digital Media on February 24, 2017.

Juanjo Giménez’s beautiful short film Timecode has been making its mark in the film world, winning a multitude of film festivals, including the Palme d’Or for the Best Short Film at the well-respected Festival de Cannes. Not only has this award winning film been nominated for Best Short Film at the Goya Awards (the Spanish Academy Awards), it has been shortlisted, along with 9 other films for the Academy Awards and has been nominated for the European Academy Awards.

MAN DOWN: In a savage post-apocalyptic America, U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf, Fury), searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, Jonathan and wife, Natalie (Kate Mara, The Martian). Accompanied by his best friend Devin (Jai Courtney, Suicide Squad), a hardnosed marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, the two intercept a survivor who carries vital information about the whereabouts of Gabriel’s family. As we revisit Garbriel’s traumatic past through a debrief with military counsellor Peyton (Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight), we are guided in unraveling the puzzle of his life and the origin of this war torn America.

The post-apocalyptic drama Graffiti deals with the universal themes of isolation and loneliness through the eyes of one character, in a world where every day is exactly the same until a mysterious person makes contact. This intense and atmospheric film was created and directed by Lluís Quílez and has been receiving both critical and audience acclaim, winning at various prestigious film festivals, including at the Oscar-qualifying Santa Barbara Film Festival.

Let’s see how much some celebrities could have claimed for injuries sustained on set. From Viggo Mortensen’s broken foot in Lord of the Rings, Bruce Willis’s permanent hearing loss on the set of the original Die Hard all the way to the metal plate Jackie Chan has in his head from a failed stunt, there are some fascinating stories.


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