AbsolutelyAnything_One Sheet Poster SMALL (1)

Thanks to Icon Films , we have 5 x double passes to give away to ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING – in Australian cinemas from November 19

The official synopsis is as follows:

It’s comedy magic when Simon Pegg teams up with the voices of the Monty Python team to remind us to be careful what you wish for in ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING. Unbeknownst to school teacher Neil Clarke (Pegg), a group of eccentric aliens decide to place the fate of humanity in his hands. In order to determine if they should destroy the Earth or not, the aliens endow Neil with the ability to make ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING he wishes for happen. Once Neil realises that he has these new special powers, it takes him more than a few goes (and gives us more than a few laughs) to try and get the hang of it – all the while the aliens are watching. Will he prove a worthy representative or doom the earth to annihilation?

You can check out the trailer here.

love&mercy

Thanks to Icon Films , we have 5 x double passes to give away to LOVE & MERCY – in Australian cinemas from June 25.

 
The official synopsis is as follows:

We all know the music, but few know the true story of musical genius, Brian Wilson and his struggles with brilliance and balance. LOVE & MERCY paints an unconventional portrait of the artist by interweaving seminal moments from his youth and later life. The role of Brian Wilson is masterfully shared between Paul Dano (12 Years a Slave, Little Miss Sunshine) as the younger, 1960s Brian; and John Cusack (Maps to the Stars, High Fidelity) as Wilson in the 1980s. The film explores the many challenges Brian has faced, both from his point of view in his younger years; and from the perspective of his now wife, Melinda (Elizabeth Banks) when she meets Brian in his 40s and under the questionable medical care of Dr. Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti). The Beach Boys were already experiencing chart topping success with Surfin’ Safari, I Get Around, Help Me Rhonda, California Girls and Good Vibrations when Brian found himself driven to move in a new musical direction. Whilst this would ultimately lead to the creation of what is widely ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time – Pet Sounds -and songs like
Wouldn’t It Be Nice, Sloop John B and God Only Knows; it also lead to the band breaking up and Brian breaking down.
