'Five leading British actresses play the Queen at pivotal times in her life in this groundbreaking drama documentary series which examines the social history of Britain through the prism of key events in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Mixing dramatised scenes from behind palace doors with news archive and testimony from royal insiders, each episode will focus on turning points in the reign of Elizabeth II - a period of monumental social upheaval. Actress Emilia Fox (Silent Witness) leads the line-up to portray the Queen in the opening film set in 1955, as Princess Margaret''s affair with Group Captain Peter Townsend exploded into public view at the time of the coronation. The second film covers the early 1970s when Britain came as close to being a republic as it ever has in modern times with civil unrest, IRA threats and a kidnap attempt on Princess Anne with Samantha Bond (Emma, Miss Moneypenny to Pierce Brosnan''s James Bond) as the Queen. Susan Jameson (New Tricks) takes on the hidden conflict between the Queen and her first female Prime Minister, Mrs Thatcher, who set herself in opposition to Crown and Commonwealth over sanctions against South Africa, while 1992 focuses on the Queen''s Annus Horribilis with Barbara Flynn (Cranford). Diana Quick (Brideshead Revisited, Kingdom) concludes the series in 2005 as the Queen - the ultimate survivor and pragmatist - ushered in the last chapters of her reign by eventually accepting Prince Charles marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles.'
Based on the hugely popular Japanese comic, GeGeGe no Kitaro , Kitaro is a live-action adaptation of the manga series created in 1959 by manga artist Shigeru Mizuki. It is best known for its popularization of the folklore creatures known as y kai, a class of spirit-monster to which all of the main characters belong. It has been adapted for the screen several times, as anime, live-action, and video games. A new anime series has been made every decade since 1968. Kitaro (Eiji Wentz) is a yokai whose parents both died before he was born. Actually, to be more accurate he crawled out of his mother s dead-and-buried corpse and emerged from her grave, but obviously the movie doesn t get too in-depth in that sort of explanation. In order to protect Kitaro, his father gathered up what little life essence he had left and emerged as a single walking, talking eyeball called Medama Oyaji. Kitaro lives in a secluded tree house with other yokai, trying to remain as unseen to human eyes as possible. However, one day Kitaro receives a letter from a little boy named Kenta Miura (Ruka Uchida) begging for his help to get rid of the ghosts haunting his apartment complex. Kitaro decides to investigate the situation, and sure enough he finds a group of mischievous yokai tormenting the residents of the complex, working under the orders of Nezumi Otoko (literally Rat Man ). Rat Man is a shifty, selfish yokai who s always looking for a way to make a quick buck, so when a land developer offered him cash to force people out of the apartment complex he jumps at the chance.
'WantedLoosely based on the comic book miniseries of the same by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones, Wanted, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, follows anxiety-prone office drone Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) as he is inducted into the Fraternity, a clan of powerful killers that counted his father as a member. Pursued by rogue agent Cross (Thomas Kretschmann), Wesley is trained by the sleek, sexy Fox (Angelina Jolie) and the charismatic Sloan (Morgan Freeman), among others, to be just as proficient and deadly as his father. Once Wesley becomes a master assassin, he must confront Cross, and contend with the stunning ramifications of that encounter. Straying rather far from the Wanted comic''s supervillain-centric premise, Wanted runs with the edgy Eastern European aesthetic of Russian helmer Bekmambetov, who garnered international recognition with the stylish vampire epic Night Watch. While Jolie is a gleefully destructive presence in her action-heavy scenes, the film belongs to McAvoy, who transforms from milquetoast to man hunter with verve and charm. And like the similarly themed The Matrix before it, Wanted also showcases some eye-catching special effects, most notably in the loopy concept of ''curving bullets''. Though devotees of the Wanted comic may be dismayed with the many liberties taken with the story, the movie is undeniably energetic and entertaining, making it fun summer blockbuster fare.

In ''A Morbid Taste For Bones'', Cadfael reluctantly accompanies an expedition to dig up the grave of St Winifred, after one of the Shrewsbury monks has a vision. He soon finds himself investigating a murder, when Lord Rhysart (John Hallam) is found dead on a forest track with an arrow in his chest. Robert (Michael Culver) believes the culprit to be Godwin, who was having an affair with Rhysart''s daughter, Sioned (Anna Friel). However, Cadfael has other ideas.
