Inexplicably absent from the marketplace for over thirty years, the re-release of Paul McCartney (and Wings) 1980 concert film Rockshow, is truly an occasion to rejoice. Presented for the first time ever (!) unedited, painstakingly restored, with a breathtaking new 5.1 mix courtesy of those wizards at Abbey Road, Rockshow, draws from four separate concerts shot during the band’s extraordinary, record smashing ‘Wings Over America’ tour of 1976, a summit in the post-Beatle career of one James Paul McCartney.
Simply put, Rockshow serves as a thrilling, intoxicating document of those heady days of the mid seventies, when the world was once again at the feet of Paul McCartney.

Helen Mirren was crowned queen of the London stage at the Olivier Awards Sunday, while compelling, canine-titled teen drama "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" emerged as best in show with seven trophies.
Mirren, 67, was a popular and expected best actress choice for her regal yet vulnerable Queen Elizabeth II in "The Audience," Peter Morgan's behind-palace-doors drama about the relationship between Britain's queen and its prime ministers.
The actress, who won an Academy Award in 2007 for playing Britain's monarch in The Queen, quipped that it was 87-year-old Elizabeth who deserved an award, "for the most consistent and committed performance of the 20th century, and probably the 21st century."

Barrymore is a wonderful opportunity to see one of the world’s best actors still at the top of his game. It’s the award-winning film adaptation of Christopher Plummer’s award-winning portrayal of John Barrymore, a towering and tragic figure in stage and film in the first half of the twentieth century.
For a very long time, Christopher Plummer owned the dubious distinction of being regarded as the best actor never to win an Oscar. He gladly lost the title in 2012, finally winning for Best Supporting Actor in Mike Mills' Beginners.
John Barrymore is not just Drew Barrymore’s grandfather. He was a popular actor who appeared in a dozen of films and theatre plays before he died in 1942. In William Luce’s Barrymore stage play, Christopher Plummer plays John Barrymore as an actor struggling to make a comeback and regain his lost fame. Director Érik Canuel combined theatre and cinema in his adaptation, which was presented last year at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and premieres at select theatres May 23rd.
Cineplex spoke with Érik Canuel, the director behind La loi du cochon, Le dernier tunnel and the highly successful English and French-language cross-over Bon Cop, Bad Cop.

Written by the playwright Dennis Kelly, with music and lyrics by Australian comedian Tim Minchin, “Matilda” took more prizes than any show in the Oliviers’ 36-year history. Its trophies included best new musical and best actor for a cross-dressing Bertie Carvel as well as the prize for young performers Cleo Demetriou, Kerry Ingram, Sophia Kiely and Eleanor Worthington-Cox. The quartet, who each perform two shows a week, are all 12 or under.
The prize for best actor in a play went jointly to Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who alternated the roles of a scientist and his monstrous creation in Danny Boyle’s National Theatre production of “Frankenstein.”

Christopher Plummer's haunting portrayal of John Barrymore is being given a new audience.
Producers said Tuesday that the film Barrymore will be shown at cinemas in Canada beginning in May and throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other countries in October.
Barrymore - a two-person play exploring the life of famed actor John Barrymore - earned Plummer a Tony in 1997. Last year, the actor recreated his performance for multiple high-definition cameras.
It was filmed over seven days on location and on the stage at the Elgin Theater in Toronto. Based on the play by William Luce, the film is directed and adapted for the screen by Erik Canuel.

For those not fortunate enough to have caught it on stage in London during its brief sold-out run or when it was beamed into theatres around the world as a part of last year's NT Live season, you're in luck! The production is returning to cinemas worldwide in June for a limited series of encore screenings.
