Sometimes, just sometimes, we all need an excuse to squeeze a few tears out. It helps us prove that we’re not dead inside, for starters, and allows us to get all our angst out without anybody judging us.

Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema at the BAFTA awards to going to everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure- the Harry Potter films.

Yesterday we reported that Alec Baldwin may be set to join upcoming threequel, Men in Black III. Are Tamara Drewe star Gemma Arterton and District 9‘s Sharlto Copley set to follow suit?
Though we know from somewhere deep within the dangers of getting too excited about Men In Black 3, our bruised little hearts just can’t help beating a little faster whenever we hear it mentioned.

Released in 2005, the original Nanny McPhee was a strong successor to Mary Poppins in every way. Adapted from the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand, the film pitted seven mischievous tykes against an ugly woman with a snaggle tooth, warts and an oversized nose, who had a few tricks up her sleeve when it came to childcare. Susanna White’s colourful sequel casts an even more bewitching spell, introducing the mysterious nanny to a family in crisis in wartime Britain.
