Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic.

As she learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield Alita from her mysterious past while her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers instead to help trigger her memories. A growing affection develops between the two until deadly forces come after Alita and threaten her newfound relationships. It is then that Alita discovers she has extraordinary fighting abilities that could be used to save the friends and family she's grown to love. Determined to uncover the truth behind her origin, Alita sets out on a journey that will lead her to take on the injustices of this dark, corrupt world, and discover that one young woman can change the world in which she lives.

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her - along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) - to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs. Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, 'A Private War' is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.

Director: Peter Jackson, Event Director

On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) presents the World Premiere of an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it. This unique film brings into high definition the human face of the First World War as part of a special London Film Festival presentation alongside a live Q&A with director Peter Jackson hosted by Mark Kermode. Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. After months immersed in the BBC and Imperial War Museums' archives, narratives and strategies on how to tell this story began to emerge for Jackson. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime. Jackson and his team have used cutting edge techniques to make the images of a hundred years ago appear as if they were shot yesterday. The transformation from black and white footage to colourised footage can be seen throughout the film revealing never before seen details. Reaching into the mists of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans, the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war.

Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche

Mon 18 Mar

Release Date: 21 Mar 2019

Director: TBC

Cast: TBC

1918. As the roar of the First World War cannons was dying out, at the heart of Central Europe, in Vienna, a golden age was coming to an end. The Austro-Hungarian Empire was beginning to disintegrate. On the night of October 31st, Egon Schiele died, at home in his own bed, adding to the 20 million deaths caused by Spanish flu. He died looking the invisible disease in the face, the only way he could: by painting it. He was 28 years old. Only a few months earlier, the main hall of the Secession building had welcomed his works: 19 oil paintings and 29 drawings. This was his first successful exhibition, a celebration of a new painting idea that portrayed human anxieties and desires. A few months earlier, his teacher and friend Gustav Klimt had died. Since the turn of the century, he had fundamentally changed the way people felt about art and founded a new group: The Secession. Today Klimt masterpieces attract visitors from all over the world to Vienna or the New Gallery in New York, or they become stars in films like Woman in Gold. But they are also pop icons that accompany our everyday lives on posters, cards, and calendars. This documentary recounts this extraordinary time period: a magical moment for art, literature, and music, in which new ideas are circulated. Freud discovers the drives of the psyche, and women begin to claim their independence. A journey through Klimt and Schiele’s Vienna and the works of the Albertina, Belvedere, Kunsthistorisches, Leopold, Freud and Wien Museums.

Flashback: The Great Escape With Dan Snow

Sun 24 Mar

Director: John Sturges

Cast: Steve McQueen

The 24th of March 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the real-life POW escape during World War II at the Luftwaffe-run Stalag Luft III prison in then German-occupied Poland. In honour of this, Dan Snow hosts a commemorative evening at the Eventim Apollo in London. The event will be live broadcast as a pre-show across UK cinemas, followed by THE GREAT ESCAPE (1963) presented in 4K DCP. John Sturges' dramatisation of the true story of a group of British, American and Canadian POWs who successfully escaped from Stalag Luft III in Upper Silesia in March 1944 is arguably the best World War II adventure film ever made. A host of big-name stars meshes beautifully in this meticulous recreation of the legendary escape. Although this is a film about courage, Sturges wisely takes a low-key approach, leavened with humour, rather than allowing the cast to indulge in macho antics.

Caravaggio – ‘the Soul and the Blood’ is a moving journey through the life, works and tormented existence of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, one of the most controversial and mysterious figures in the history of art. Caravaggio was a revolutionary artist and, as a result, often little loved by his contemporaries. He travelled all over Italy in search of fortune or perhaps in search of himself, escaping from the enemies he invariably made along the way. Milan, Florence, Rome, Naples, Malta: 5 cities, 15 museums and 40 of the most famous artworks in the artist’s typical style, filmed in the places they were specifically created for, or in major museums in Italy and the rest of the world where they can be found today.   This Art Film tells the story of Caravaggio’s artworks through in-depth research into documented evidence, placing a particular focus on his life, a life of light and shade, contrast and contradictions, of being a genius and living on the wild side, finding echoes of his personal experiences in his masterpieces.

A journey through the masterpieces and obsessions of the Genius of the Impressionism. With the invaluable contribution of Ross King, author of the best seller Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies. From Giverny, Musée D’Orsay, Orangerie and Marmottan. When former French Prime Minister George Clemenceau went to Giverny, he found several canvases stacked in the cellar of the rich house in which he was a guest. Many of them are of exotic flowers, presented for the first time at the 1889 Universal Exhibition in Paris. The garden, the pond and the canvases that made that house unique are works of art by the father of Impressionism himself: Claude Monet. And those flowers with the fleshy petals, floating on the surface of the water and extending their roots down into the marshy waters, are nénuphar, but for Monet they will, always and only, be Nymphéas, Water Lilies. This film let us discover what happened to make Claude Monet re-emerge from the depression that led him to abandon painting, and see how he decided to devote himself body and soul to his most colossal undertaking: the Grand Décoration. Huge panels depicting his water lily pond, so all-enveloping that the viewer's gaze is lost in an atmosphere of serenity and peace.
