Check out the world's smallest cinema tickets!

By Dave Lancaster

As far as publicity stunts go for major film releases, this one is pretty small scale but perfectly formed. In an attempt to give Marvel's Ant-Man movie a little more publicity, micro cinema tickets (just 5 x 10mm!) were scattered across the UK.

One hundred ant-sized IMAX tickets are hidden around three UK cities – London, Manchester and Birmingham – to celebrate the IMAX® 3D release of ANT-MAN in UK cinemas from Friday 17th July.

The little tickets are completely valid and can be exchanged for entrance into the epic film. Clues are found on IMAX’s twitter page at www.twitter.com/imax. Those who are successful in their hunt will be encouraged to tweet a selfie with their tiny ticket to @IMAX using the hashtag #IMAXAntMan.

A reformed criminal with amazing powers must save the world in incredible Marvel superhero Ant-Man's screen debut. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is a con-man whose extraordinary Ant-Man suit allows him to shrink in size while boosting his strength. With the future of the world at stake, he must find his inner hero and help his scientist mentor Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to pull off an audacious heist. 'Yes Man' director Peyton Reed helms this great new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ricky Gervais teases first glimpse at Office spin-off movie David Brent: Life on the Road

By Dave Lancaster

Ricky Gervais is officially making a movie centred around his most famous comedy creation: 'The Office' leader David Brent. To prove that it's really happening, we've got a dashing still of the man giving us his best rock and roll pose.

'Life on the Road' will follow the awkward character as he transitions from paper merchant boss to wannabe rock star, touring the road with his musical outfit Foregone Conclusion.

Set to arrive in UK cinemas by August 2016, here's what the official synopsis from the Entertainment One and BBC Films production offers:

Twelve years ago, David Brent (Ricky Gervais) was a regional manager for a mid-level paper merchants.  In Summer 2016, get ready to see him on the big screen as he chases fame and fortune in LIFE ON THE ROAD.  

Now working as a rep selling cleaning (and ladies personal hygiene) products up and down the country, Brent hasn’t given up his dream of becoming a rock star - or more specifically, singer/songwriter for fledgling rock band ‘Foregone Conclusion’.  As he assembles a group of mercenary session musicians, a talented sidekick for street cred and an overpriced yet underwhelmed tour manager, he embarks upon a self-financed UK tour coming to a venue near every major city near you.

Ricky Gervais, who won six BAFTAs for starring and producing 'The Office', said: "I’m so excited that the world will see what David Brent is up to now and where his future lies. This film delves much more into his private life than The Office ever did and we really get to peel back the layers of this extraordinary, ordinary man."

The film is directed, written by, stars and includes original music from Ricky Gervais.

TEASER TRAILER: First look at Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

By Dave Lancaster

The first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic has arrived, offering a steely glimpse at Michael Fassbender's take on the Apple Mac prodigy.

Written by Aaron Sorkin, 'Steve Jobs' certainly recalls the Oscar winning screenwriter's previous tech master drama 'The Social Network' with its foreboding sense of impending tragedy and loneliness in the crowd vibe.

The synopsis for the film is: Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.

Essentially, the film will be three long scenes stitched together to create a three act biopic. Given that '128 Hours' and 'Slumdog Millionaire' director Danny Boyle is at the helm, we are betting that the precedings will be far from stuffy.

Alongside Michael Fassbender as  Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, the film's supporting cast is impressive with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley.

The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.

The biggest stars and movies of 2015 revealed

According to a survey by Fandango, the new 'Star Wars' reboot 'The Force Awakens' is the most anticipated film of 2015.

It's hardly surprising given the weight of the multi-billion dollar franchise's history but 2015 is set to be a year of fierce competition. Other studio tentpoles making the top five in the rundown include sequel 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', reboot 'Jurassic World', franchise finisher 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2' and eagerly awaited erotic fiction adaptation 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. Missing from the top five was the new James Bond flick 'Spectre'.

Fandango's survey of over 1,000 fans also revealed the top stars of the year proving that veteran screen heroes like Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr still have what it takes to draw in the fans.

And the world's top 20 most pirated films of the year are...

Martin Scorsese's Oscar nominated business drama 'The Wolf of Wall Street' has been declared the most pirated film of 2014.

In a review of worldwide torrent users, the biopic of maverick stockbroker Jordan Belfort (played to Oscar nominated perfection by Leonardo DiCaprio) racked up 30 million illegal downloads.



Rounding out the top five were Disney's blockbuster family flick 'Frozen', Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller 'Gravity' and a double header of big budget studio fantasy epics in the form of 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' and 'Thor: The Dark World'.

As usual the list was dominated by films which were big (legit) hits at the box office - typically in the action genre - while awards season fare was also well represented often due to the masses of screener copies sent out for awards consideration which were then leaked to pirates.

An interesting sidenote on this list is the double entry for 'Robocop' as downloads bagged copies of both the 1987 original and the 2014 reboot. As figures are unclear on their individual downloads, they have been combined here.

Piracy-tracking firm Excipio compiled the list.

The world's top 20 pirated movies of 2014 ranked by number of downloads (alongside info on the studio and original theatrical release date):
