Pedro Almodóvar’s new film Los Amantes Pasajeros, or I’m So Excited to us English-speaking jerks, is officially out in cinemas everyone! It’s obviously going to be totally weird because it’s by Pedro Almodóvar. Did you guys see that movie, The Skin I Live In? WHAT WAS THAT? Anyway, this film is more or less The Skin I Live In On a Plane. More importantly, though, the film shares its English title with a very famous song by The Pointer Sisters, which got us thinking: what other films out there have famous songs for titles? Turns out, loads. Because nothing in this wretched world is original.
Antonio Banderas is back on our screens in a big way this year, starring in a Pedro Almodóvar film for the first time in two decades and voicing his Shrek character Puss in Boots in a high-profile spin-off. But how much do you know about his winery? EXACTLY. Thank God for you we’ve just written a Cheat Sheet…
Perhaps you’d noticed, but multiplex cinemas are starting to get really, really pricey. This would be fine if the experience was improving, but it’s not. It’s getting worse. After one too many sub-par screenings, maybe it’s time to find somewhere else to get our fix..
What do you mean, you haven’t meticulously planned your summer around the amazing film events which are going on all over London? You’re not right, mate. Fortunately, we definitely have organised our getting-burnt-in-the-park sessions so they work around the special screenings we just can’t miss – and if you’re nice, you can peek in our diary.
So after a wet and blustery June and a less than tropical July, it looks like August is going to be no better. So, rather than delay the inevitable, best face facts now: that barbeque is staying in the shed, you’re not going to get a chance to wear that bikini and picnic food tastes rubbish when it’s covered in rain. However, last time we checked cinemas are all rain free! Huzzah! Here’s your pick of what’s to come next month!
Almodovar is a right minx.
