Drury Lane is the oldest and most haunted theatre in London. In fact, some say it is the most haunted building in the world. So far, I haven't personally seen any ghosts since we opened in June, but other members of cast and crew claim to have.
With a new script in development 'in which nobody dies', Copti currently teaches aspiring filmmakers at Abu Dhabi's NYU from where he tells me about the importance of passing knowledge on to others, yearning for peace in the Middle East and moving on from the overwhelming high of Ajami.
With the growth of the internet and internet-connected devices, more and more of us are used to finding content at our fingertips, at the touch of a button. So what does this mean for the future of film and the way that we access entertainment?
We have to raise £9,000 by the 12 December - and if we don't reach our goal, we won't get a penny. So if anyone out there has any money they want to launder, we're not fussy where it comes from.
Sold out! Performances of terminator tank, hang tough, hit and run, dog fight, whiplash and eliminator are instant sell outs. I'm not talking about tickets for a new series of Gladiators but the way animals are treated in some of the highest earning Hollywood blockbusters.
I'm going to come right out and say it, Alexander Payne's Nebraska features my favourite performance of 2013 and it's not Bruce Dern as Woody, wonderful though he is. She may only be on screen for around fifteen minutes in total but June Squibb, playing Woody's long suffering wife Kate, steals every scene she's in.
The Danes hit the headlines with 'The Killing', 'The Bridge' and 'Borgen'. They also do comedy. KLOWN is a wonderfully outrageous comedy gem with assured performances and a finale of all time. It'll linger with you and you'll certainly chuckle after you leave the cinema.
So, here's the run-down of why you should all be paying attention to Punjabi cinema. In Britain alone, Punjabi films have been climbing higher and higher up the box office top 10.
Steve Moffatt said that television was better than cinema. And that's fighting talk. He then went on to give five reasons why this was the case. Well, as they say in the US, 'straight back at ya' - here are more than five reasons he's wrong:
Saving Mr Banks is still a tear-jerking, feel good, surprisingly dark Christmas cracker. Practically perfect in (almost) every way.
Although it does not make easy viewing, Joshua Oppenheimer's surreal and chilling documentary, The Act of Killing, recently released on DVD, is a must see.
September 1987, and the face of horror changed forever. Hellraiser, Clive Barker's debut movie, turned out to be one of the most visionary and influential films of the decade.
In an era where buzzwords such as 'realness' and 'authenticity' are king, this confirms how the right item of clothing can help convey a believable character even before the actor has opened his or her mouth.
'Floating Skyscrapers' is an accomplished second feature and is a touching story of denial and desire that addresses themes of loneliness, love that's different and its social acceptance in contemporary Polish society.
I concede that the Hunger Games is an important warning, a vision of the not too distant future if inequality and poverty persists as it does. This is the message of the Hunger Games. This is why I have a real issue with the blatant branding of the franchise.
It occurred to me that maybe I was just as deluded as every one of these hopefuls who I had judged. Maybe I was just another desperate, fame-hungry, talentless nobody that the casting directors would just laugh at prior to sending me on my way home within seconds...
