    Ren MacCormack (Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the
    small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy
    dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was
    rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night
    out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend
    Shaw Moore (Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances
    that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the
    status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalising the town and
    falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Hough)
    in the process.

    In his latest adventure, the most unlikely intelligence
    officer in Her Majesty’s Secret Service must stop a group of
    international assassins before they eliminate a world leader
    and cause global chaos. In the years since MI-7’s top spy

    of an attempt against the Chinese Premier’s life, they must

    latest in hi-tech gadgets to unravel a web of conspiracy
    that runs throughout the KGB, CIA and even MI-7. With
    mere days until a Heads of State conference, one man must

                     Film Trivia
                     Costars Emma Stone and Bryce Dallas
                     Howard have both played Gwen Stacy in a
                     Spider-Man movie.


                     The book store in the film, Avent & Clark
                     Booksellers, was named after Avent Clark, a
                     production assistant on the film.


                     Jessica Chastain, a vegan, ate soy ice cream
                     melted in the microwave to gain weight for the
                     role of Celia Foote.


                     Kathryn Stockett’s book on which this film is
                     based was rejected 60 times before it was
                     eventually published.


                     Hilly’s house is actually a residential property
                     and the featured cream couch was already
                     part of it.


                     The painting above Celia’s fireplace was found
                     in the basement of a hospital, while the two
                     armchairs from that scene were found in a
                     second-hand store.


                     Allison Janney and Brian Kerwin are married in
                     this film. In The West Wing Janney’s character
                     dated a park ranger played by Kerwin.


                     Skeeter’s bookshelf contains the following
                     books: The Invisible Man, To Kill a
                     Mockingbird, and Gone With the Wind. All
                     three of these books are discussed many times
                     in the original novel.


                     Director Tate Taylor and the author of the
                     book, Kathryn Stockett, were childhood
                     friends in Jackson, Mississippi.

     Fright Night
     HORROR |     Starring: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette,

     Senior Charlie Brewster (Yelchin) finally has it all – he’s
     running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl
     in high school. In fact, he’s so cool he’s even dissing his best
     friend Ed. But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger
     Jerry (Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a great guy
     at first, but there’s something not quite right – and everyone,
     including Charlie’s mum, doesn’t notice. After witnessing
     some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable
     conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighbourhood.
     Unable to convince anyone that he’s telling the truth, Charlie
     has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself.

        Colin Farrell Q&A
      Q: What attracted you to this project?
      A: I had done a lot of dramatic films and dramatic roles back
      to back for three or four years. I literally said to my agent, “I’d
      love to do something that’s really, really different and that has
      some comedy to it, something that’s fun.”
      Then this came along. I was dubious about it, because I had
      seen the original when I was 11 or 12 and I loved it. I particularly
      loved how Chris Sarandon played Jerry and I had a little boy
      crush on him, so I didn’t want to like the script when I read it.
      I said, “They’re remaking ‘Fright Night.’ That could be a really
      bad idea,” but then I just really just loved the script and saw
      how this could be a lot of fun.
      It was also very contingent on who was directing it, since
      that would determine whether the film worked or not. When
      I heard that Craig Gillespie was involved and we sat down
22    and spoke, I realised it would be a blast to play a character
FEB   that is unbridled by any human sense of fear, remorse, regret
      or compassion. The screenwriter, Marti Noxon, designed the
      character in a very particular way. She wanted Jerry to be the
      kind of vampire that is more malevolent, violent and cruel
      than the vampires who have been presented onscreen in
      recent years.
      Q: Did you consciously try to bring a sense of humour into
      the role.
      A: No, I never felt any pressure to bring humour into the film.
      I think that was left up to David Tennant and Christopher
      Mintz-Plasse. Their two characters had a lot of the humorous
      dialogue and those boys know their way around humour. I
      was the horror and they were the humour.
