‘Back to the Future: The Musical’ Photos Reveal the DeLorean on Stage, Dancing Doc Browns & More

Back to the Future: The Musical started early previews at the Manchester Opera House just last week. Unfortunately, since the show is only playing in London until the middle of May, that leaves a lot of Back to the Future fans unable to check out the lively show from Tony Award-winning director John Rando (Urinetown, On The Town). But the good news is you can get a little sneak peek at what the show looks like thanks to some Back to the Future: The Musical photos from the first week of shows fo...

Five years of Radiocentre’s See Radio Differently

Radiocentre’s Chief Executive Siobhan Kenny looks back on the industry body’s overarching strategy, See Radio Differently. “When I joined the radio industry almost 6 years ago now, one of the first things I wanted to tackle was its image. It was pretty clear that either we stepped up our efforts to tell our own story, or others would quickly seize the narrative and do it for us. It had already started happening. Last week I went to Dublin, a guest of Radio Days Ireland, to present the results...

‘The Call of the Wild’ Review: A Heartfelt Survival Story Buried in a Mush of Uncanny CGI

Most attempts to adapt the works of Jack London to the big screen have, more often than not, resulted in a neutered final product. Chris Sanders‘ live-action/computer-animated adaptation of The Call of the Wild falls firmly in this category. Gone is the savage romance of London’s short novel in all its untamed glory, instead, The Call of the Wild is a Disney-fied The Revenant — though it’s even less a survival film than it is a schmaltzy celebration of that bond between dog and human. At parts,...

Paul Feig on the ‘Last Christmas’ Twist, Playing With Genre, And How ‘Freaks and Geeks’ is the Template for ‘Dark Army’ [Interview]

Paul Feig was not happy that the internet guessed the twist in Last Christmas. But sometimes, in the words of the great George Michael, you gotta have faith. Of course, there was a chance that someone would guess the premise of Last Christmas, which takes its inspiration from the Wham! song of the same name, but that Feig was “not pleased” that audiences wouldn’t get the chance to be blown away as he was when he read Emma Thompson’s script. “I was just really emotional when I read it.
