Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for August 14th, 2012. This week: Alf goes CG, Carlo Rambaldi dies, Aladdin heads to Broadway, The Hobbit scales down, Ender’s Game scales up, Red Dawn gets a trailer and free movies on BitTorrent. All this and more!

Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Richard Gray

What used to be a boring, stuffy film section of the Film Actually podcast has been spun off into it’s own, we hope, more entertaining show. We don’t make the news, we just have fun with it. Film Actually News - Loud, Fast and Under Thirty Minutes… or your money back.

    I haven’t seen the original Red Dawn but seeing this trailer reminds me of “Tomorrow when the war began” but with Thor.
