5 Ridiculously Entertaining Reasons To Go And See Jack Whitehall's 'The Bad Education Movie'

Following three hugely popular series on BBC Three, Jack Whitehall's Bad Education has been given an Inbetweeners-style film spin-off. In typical sitcom movie style, it takes a bunch of characters fans already know and love and plonks them in a slightly more exotic setting, as Whitehall's unconventional schoolteacher Alfie Wickers escorts his favourite class from Watford's fictional Abbey Grove comprehensive on a post-GCSEs jaunt to Cornwall. But The Bad Education Movie is no half-baked cash-in; here are five reasons why it's worth a trip to the cinema this weekend.

James Bond 'Spectre' Trailer: A Tension-Ramping White Knuckle Ride That Gives Nothing Away

It's probably no exaggeration to call Spectre the most eagerly-anticipated Bond film ever. That's partly because, in 2015, few Bond movies before it have arrived on such a wave of teaser trailers, social media chatter, TV spots, production stills, behind-the-scenes vlogs and gossip gleaned from cast members desperately trying to hold their tongues while promoting other films. But it's mostly because the last Bond film, 2012's Skyfall, was simply massive. It was the first one to gross over $1 billion at the global box office, thanks to a story and cinematography that felt modern and gritty while making nostalgic nods to the series' past glories, and the first one in recent memory to seem like it had a shot at proper Oscar nominations. In the end, industry snobbishness prevented Sam Mendes' picture from being shortlisted for Best Picture, but Adele's Best Original Song gong was a nice consolation prize.
