Directed by Ben Stiller. Starring Ben Stiller. Produced by Ben Stiller. And you know what? That looks like a good thing. As for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty trailer, with its bizarre editing and unexpected visuals? It could almost pass for a music video. Again, that's a good thing.

Three Gravity clips - Alfonso Cuaron

It's the end of the week, you've had a hard time at work, but sometimes you don't want to get home and relax. Sometimes, you want a nice bit of moral peril to completely terrify you out of your wits.

Luckily, these clips from Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity have turned up online. They're fantastic - although you may regret seeing them the moment they finish. Not just because of spoilers (while the plot admirably isn't dealt with, you may feel like you've seen some of the most suspenseful sequences in the film), but because they're really, really intense.

Here are three steps to a traumatic Friday night:

After Oldboy and The Hangover Part III, you could be forgiven for thinking that 2013 was on the way to becoming the year of crappy posters. But Bryan Singer obviously didn't get that memo: these new X-Men: Days of Future Past posters are fantastic.

Although, of course, they're still nowhere near as good as this classic X-Men poster:

Alpha Papa clip: reassuring or a warning sign? Print E-mail

It remains impossible to tell whether Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will be a triumphant bounce back for Norfolk's finest radio DJ or whether it will see him fail massively like a shamed man stuffing his face with Toblerone on the M25. This first clip from the film doesn't clear things up - there's a titter in there, as well as a cameo for the brilliant Darren Boyd, but it's hardly side-splitting stuff.

What do you think?

Alan Partridge is out on Wednesday 7th August.

12 Years a Slave trailer: a Steve McQueen film? Print E-mail

"My name is Solomon Northup and I am a free man!"

That's Chiwetel Ejiofor in the 12 Years a Slave trailer. It doesn't sound like the kind of dialogue you'd expect to hear in a Steve McQueen movie. In fact, the whole trailer doesn't feel like a Steve McQueen movie: compared to the pared-down raw preview of Hunger and the wordless Carey Mulligan-led montage that trailed Shame, this feels like a more conventional film, full of empowering speeches and a plot and everything.

A quick glance at IMDb shows it's written by John Ridley with, curiously, no credit to McQueen - he co-wrote his last two screenplays with Abi Morgan and Enda Walsh respectively. John Ridley, meanwhile, last wrote the similarly-themed Red Tails, an underrated true story of a struggle for equality but one that is far from the abstract subtlety of Steve McQueen's work to date.

Shame saw Steve take a turn towards a more mainstream structure, more film than art installation. Will 12 Years a Slave complete that transition? Or is the trailer simply positioning it for Oscar season? (There's already - yes, even in July - talk of Chiwetel Ejiofor getting a nod.) With a cast that includes Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti and Michael Fassbender, not to mention McQueen's eye behind the camera, it'll be interesting to see how this one ends up. Needless to say, it looks very good.

Read on for the 12 Years a Slave trailer.
