SFX - - Cinema -

A hand­ful more ti­tles are due for re­lease while SFX 255 is on the shelves, but sadly screen­ings missed our dead­line. The big one is the third in the Hunger Games fran­chise, Mock­ing­jay: Part One ( 20 Novem­ber), in which Jen­nifer Lawrence’s Kat­niss be­comes a poster child for the re­bel­lion – be sure to check out our fea­ture over on page 46. Oh, and Stan­ley Kubrick’s trippy, enig­matic 1968 clas­sic 2001: A Space Odyssey gets a reis­sue on the same day, cour­tesy of the BFI. Why not take an old bone along to your lo­cal screen­ing and fling it in the air at the ap­pro­pri­ate junc­ture? On to 5 De­cem­ber next, and Black Death/ Sev­er­ance di­rec­tor Christo­pher Smith is the un­likely man in charge of fes­tive Brit­com Get Santa, star­ring Jim Broad­bent as Mr Claus. If it’s slay­ing you’re after, not sleighs, best swerve that for The Pyra­mid, hor­ror from Haute Ten­sion writer Gré­gory Levasseur, in which a group of ar­chae­ol­o­gists get trapped in… well, take a wild guess.
