Cannibal film Raw is not meant to make you sick

"That's a shame," sighs its director Julia Ducournau as she glances at a recent article about a screening in Los Angeles.

"It clearly doesn't do justice for my movie, which is not a barf fest. I think it's very reductive."

The film, out in the UK this week, tells the story of a vegetarian student, Justine (Garance Marillier), who eats raw meat for the first time during a blood-soaked "hazing ceremony" for new recruits at veterinary school.

Sienna Miller on why her new role is not 'just a wife'

So much so that she altered a script when she thought Nina Fawcett was appearing as too much of a stereotypical "wife" - with the director framing the scrawled-on piece of paper.

The film - based on a true story - is about explorer Percy Fawcett, played by Charlie Hunnam, and his quest to find a mysterious lost city in the heart of the Amazon.

His first mission in 1906, accompanied by surveying partner Henry Costin (played by Robert Pattinson), sees them return with apparent evidence that this previously undiscovered community exists.

Hollywood screenwriter accuses Disney of stealing ideas for Zootopia

Gary Goldman, whose credits include Total Recall and Minority Report, is suing the firm and says elements of the film are based on his work.

He claims Disney copied themes, settings, plot, characters and dialogue and the title of his Zootopia concept.

Mr Goldman also claims he pitched the idea to the studio in 2000 and 2009.

The copyright infringement case suggests Disney works in "a culture that not only accepts the unauthorised copying of others' original material, but encourages it".

Mariah Carey announces All I Want movie for this Christmas

Mariah Carey announced the news on Twitter to her 17.6 million followers.

She wrote: "My song is becoming a movie! You're the first to hear about this exciting news".

It will be out for the Christmas holiday season at the end of the year and will be called All I Want.

In it she lies on a sofa in festive pyjamas stroking a small Jack Russell dog who seems to be trying to run away.

There's also a clue to what the animated film will look like in the shape of a copy of her book version of the song.

Pop Star Cameos

He's set to make a cameo appearance in the seventh season of Game of Thrones.

What role he'll be playing is still under wraps, but let's hope it won't be as prominent as his album is in the charts or no other actors will get a look in.

It's not even Ed's first cameo appearance in a TV show - he previously appeared (and sang) in a 2015 episode of Home and Away.

Beauty and the Beast release postponed in Malaysia

The Emma Watson film was due to open on Thursday but has been put on hold due to an "internal review". No specific reason has been given for the decision.

The film courted controversy last week after it emerged it would feature a "gay moment".

Homosexual activity is illegal in Muslim majority Malaysia, although the tourism minister has said banning the film is "ridiculous".

"You don't ban a film because of a gay character," Seri Nazri Aziz told the Malay Mail.

Disney's first gay character and love scene

US actor Josh Gad plays LeFou, a sidekick of the film's main antagonist Gaston.

LeFou tries to come to terms with feelings for Gaston that swing between lust and admiration, as a side-plot to the main story.

When the first Beauty and the Beast trailer was released last year it had almost 130 million views in 24 hours.

Disney are calling it their first ever "exclusively gay moment" on film.
