Cult filmmakers and familiar genre faces come together to bring you the ultimate Halloween film event with horror anthology TALES OF HALLOWEEN.
A suburban American town is terrorized by ghouls, aliens, and killers on one Halloween night.
With directors including Neil Marshall (The Descent), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2,3 and 4), Luck McGee (The Woman) and more, this looks like a anthology horror movie that will have something for everyone.
They are really difficult to pull off as you know a few of the story’s will be pretty bad however if done right it can be entertaining enough to forgive it’s faults
Synopsis – Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Thoughts – No matter what i say or think this is going to put bums on seats when it’s released next March.
It’s two of the biggest superhero’s going toe-to-toe with each other, what more do you want.
Thank you to Warner Bros UK for giving us this fantastic trailer

It was obvious that Big Hero 6 wouldn’t be able to stay at the top of the chart this week as one sexy movie based on a novel that’s even more steamier than it’s big screen brother has managed to not only go straight into the top spot, but also broke a few records on it’s way, that film in question is Fifty Shades of Grey
No other new film managed to get into the top 10 this week as no studio thought it was wise for them to go up against the behemoth that was Fifty Shades, their was another new entry though but calling it a film is pushing it, that new entry was Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots.
Upcoming – Not a huge release for movies this week however their are a few that might stand a chance of scraping into the bottom end of the chart, on offer is Sci-Fi film Project Almanac, thriller from director Michael Mann with Blackhat, drama starring Jennifer Aniston in Cake and mind bending Sci-Fi thriller in Predestination.
