In Cinemas JUNE 6

SYNOPSIS:

In a picturesque village in England, Joan Stanley (Academy Award® winner Dame Judi Dench), lives in contented retirement. Then suddenly her tranquil existence is shattered as she’s shockingly arrested by MI5. For Joan has been hiding an incredible past; she is one of the most influential spies in living history. Cambridge University in the 1930s, and the young Joan (Sophie Cookson), a demure physics student, falls intensely in love with a seductively attractive Russian saboteur, Leo. Through him, she begins to see that the world is on a knife-edge and perhaps must be saved from itself in the race to military supremacy. Post-war and now working at a top secret nuclear research facility, Joan is confronted with the impossible: Would you betray your country and your loved ones, if it meant saving them? What price would you pay for peace? Inspired by an extraordinary true story, Red Joan is the taut and emotional discovery of one woman’s sacrifice in the face of incredible circumstances.

SYNOPSIS:

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie (“Sherlock Holmes,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”), who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, “Aladdin” is written by John August (“Dark Shadows,” “Big Fish”) and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” The film stars Will Smith (“Ali,” “Men in Black”) as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud (“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”) as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott (“Power Rangers”) as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express”) as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban (“Legion”) as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad (“Saturday Night Live”) as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; and Billy Magnussen (“Maniac”) as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders.

Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, the film maps out a pathway for change that can lead us to a more ecologically sustainable and equitable future. 2040 is an aspirational film full of hope about the possibility to make changes that will shift the course for humanity and the planet. 2040 is the narrative the next generation needs to see, to aspire to, and to believe is possible.

SEASON RUNS 11-25 MAY

SYNOPSIS:

Chris Martin, one of Australia’s most promising up-and-coming comedians, is digging his claws into the 2019 Anywhere Festival with his hilarious show Claw Machine.

“Ageing, relationships, the awkward situations I constantly find myself in are all covered in this show,” says Martin, a Brisbane-based comedian. “I use these stories and personal experiences to show that a relationship exits between people and the popular arcade Claw Machine.”
Martin, whose relaxed style of storytelling comedy has gained the attention of many industry heavyweights, debuted Claw Machine at the 2018 Bris Funny Fest, where the show was met with sell-out crowds, rave reviews and audience acclaim. The show was also positively received at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival. After recently directing Big Fork Theatre’s production Around The Campfire at the 2019 Brisbane Comedy Festival to glowing reviews, Martin returns to the Anywhere Festival to do what he does best – tell his hilarious stories on stage.

“I can’t wait to perform this show again in Brisbane,” says Martin. “I’ve worked really hard on it, and it’s even better than the show I debuted at the Bris Funny Fest last year.”
