‘The Lost City of Z‘ (in cinemas 24 March) tells the incredible true story of Colonel Percy Fawcett, a pioneering explorer who spent his life obsessively searching for Z, a lost civilisation he believed lay hidden deep in the Amazon rainforest. ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star Charlie Hunnam plays the fabled adventurer whose final mission into the jungle, accompanied by his son Jack (‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ star Tom Holland), ended mysteriously in 1925. In order to achieve authenticity director James Gray insisted on shooting the exploration scenes deep amongst the lush nature of the Columbian rainforest and, as its star (and Fawcett himself) found out, nature has a habit of fighting back.
Aside from a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in a sizzle reel shown at Comic-Con last summer, Sylvester Stallone’s role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been shrouded in mystery.

In the above behind-the-scenes clip from the home release, Pratt shows off his boogie-woogie moves for costar Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the Passengers crew during the filming of the dance scene. What’s undeniable is that Pratt and Lawrence had a great time making Passengers, as confirmed by both the above clip, this previous blooper reel, and their many charming joint interviews.
The international trailer for the upcoming drama A Family Man (watch exclusively above) opens with a familiar setup: Gerard Butler is a Dane Jensen, a hotshot headhunter (“the purest form of salesman,” he boasts) too busy for his wife (Gretchen Mol) and kids.

Despite playing a former SAS soldier and undergoing a rigorous military training regime for ‘Kong: Skull Island’, its (human-sized) star Tom Hiddleston admits he’s not tough to be a real special forces operative. “I was trained [for the film] not by the SAS,” explains the star who plays grizzled tracker James Conrad in the film, “because I probably would be dead by now. Because my physical fitness is nowhere near the level required.
Amma Asante is one of the most exciting directors working in the British film industry right now.

In 2013 Jordan Vogt-Roberts, a fresh-faced and clean-shaven 29-year-old director of short comedy films, was riding high at Sundance Film Festival after his his debut feature ‘Kings of Summer’ had been nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. Fast forward to March 2017, and the now-heavily bearded filmmaker (seriously, his facial hair puts ZZ Top to shame) is in London to launch his second film, the star-laden, mega-budgeted tentpole ‘Kong: Skull Island’ (in cinemas 9 March). It’s a gargantuan step up for the self-confessed film nerd in pretty much every conceivable way, but for Vogt-Roberts he’s exactly where he aimed to be.

The director credits the film’s singular tone and vision on the freedom granted by 20th Century Fox’s which allowed him to make a film that stood apart from the X-Men universe.
