This weekend the second annual Kapow Comic Convention took place in North London. Being a mere mile away from the Angel Business Design Centre I decided to tag along for the weekend and see what all the buzz was about, especially in regards to all the film properties on show in the site’s auditorium.

The next big release for UK and European audiences is Ridley Scott’s Prometheus which is due to hit cinemas on the 1st June and after the recent international trailer premiere which aired exclusively on Channel 4, who isn’t anticipating its release?
Yesterday The Avengers hit British shores and after catching the first screening of the day I can honestly say that I really, really enjoyed it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not perfect, but it’s a movie made by a comic-book aficionado for the fans. Now the attention turns to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises, which is now just under three months away from release.
Today finally sees the release of The Avengers in North America, and while it contains evident flaws, the movie is nothing short of a two-hour canonical ride across the Marvel Universe which provides everything to satisfy film fans, comic nerds and casual watchers alike.
I don’t know about the rest of the world, but the next thing for UK/European Cinema’s will be the release of The Avengers the 26th of April. Well, I really should be calling it Avengers Assemble as that is its official title here in the UK.
Every fortnight (that is two weeks in case you are reading this hung-over) I will collect, evaluate and release all the film-tastic news that may or may not have made your radar due to it being UK/European specific.
I could write about the BAFTA’s, or the various other award ceremonies that have taken place over the last few weeks, but everybody knows that all eyes will be on the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles this Sunday as the 84th annual Academy Awards ceremony takes place. Will The Artist rule the Academy Award’s, like it did the BAFTA’s? Well, you’ll just have to wait till Sunday to fine out, but until then…
In two days’ time the British equivalent of the Academy Awards takes place in the form of the British Academy Film and Television Awards on Sunday 12th February 2012. But, to keep you busy until then, there is plenty of beautiful film news to follow below, as the year has finally got past the post-Christmas rut and the news is now (thankfully) flowing fast and freely.
