It is fairly extraordinary that this film exists. The level of access attained by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger over their 15-month period embedded with the Second Platoon, Battle Company, 173rd Airborne Brigade allows for an incredibly unvarnished account — including footage of deaths both civilian and military. It’s perhaps the most intimate and unflinching examination yet of the processes of modern warfare — and an exhilarating, heartrending, profoundly moving film in its own right.

Comic book franchise ‘Witchblade’ is set for a live-action big screen adaptation.

The Witchblade mythology centres on an ornate jewel-encrusted gauntlet that gives extraordinary powers to the wearer, a specially chosen female from each generation.

Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins will produce the film, due to start shooting in September.

EXTRAs: The ‘Witchblade’ franchise has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide since debuting in 1995 and spawned a 2000 television feature that turned into a weekly series that ran for two seasons.
