Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn/halo: Nightfall Double Pack

was £0.00
Based on the globally renowned “Halo®” franchise, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn delivers a dramatic story of heroism and sacrifice. Set against the backdrop of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) military academy, Cadet Thomas Lasky struggles with doubts about the ongoing war with the outer colonial planets. As he comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the academy comes under attack from a terrifying alien assault. Lasky must fight to protect the academy and its students alongside an armoured super-soldier known only as the Master Chief. Written by Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing (Smallville, Spartacus) and directed by Stewart Hendler (H+, Sorority Row), the feature boasts a diverse cast of Hollywood talent and a top-tier production team.

Halo: Nightfall introduces a pivotal new character, Jameson Locke, a legendary man-hunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch. When he and his team are caught in a horrific biological attack, they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artefact, where they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives.

Magi the Labyrinth of Magic

In search of the animated Arabian Nights
The literary history of the Arabian Nights that underlies Magi is fascinating. The one point that any Magi fan should know to sound erudite is that three of the show’s main characters, Aladdin, Alibaba and Sinbad, are named after famous Arabian Nights heroes. However, none of these heroes were actually in the original collection.

Wolf Children and Families

In search of Mamoru Hosoda’s family ties
The Wolf Children is a family film about a family. This may help explain while Mamoru Hosoda’s movie was a hit in Japan, something that’s very unusual for a standalone cartoon film not linked to an entrenched brand. A well-rounded portrait of a family offers many ways in for different generations. The Wolf Children is the story of an unassuming ‘ordinary’ mum who must find reserves of superhuman strength; of a rambunctious girl and a troubled boy, each with different relationships to their animal sides; of a magic, mythic love between a human woman and a gentle werewolf; and of everyday, practical living away from city lights and mod-cons.
