The Filmhouse Presents: The Adventures Of Prince Achmed (With Live Accompaniment By Sink) (Cert. U)

Widely considered to be the first full-length animated feature in the history of cinema, The Adventures of Prince Achmed is a beautifully crafted piece of storytelling based loosely on the Arabian Nights. The film is an exciting tale of sword fights, genies and adventure told using a silhouette animation technique pioneered by director Lotte Reiniger.

Filmhouse Edinburgh have commissioned acoustic trio Sink to bring their live sounds to this very special animated feature as part of a Scotland-wide tour. Reaching beyond their usual instrumentation of violin, accordion and saxophone to create a score that is in part conjured, Sink set the quiet air into magical vibration: theplughole.org.

Part of CineScore Live, a touring season of live music and film events supported by Film Hub Scotland.

  • Directed by: David Ayer
  • Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne

A group of incarcerated supervillains is recruited to undertake dangerous missions. The result is so conventional, it's twee: Deadshot (Smith) just wants to be a good dad, Diablo (Hernandez) spends the whole film moping and Harley Quinn (Robbie)'s idea of bad behaviour is breaking a window. With unconvincing effects and cliché-ridden dialogue, it's plain awful.

Suicide Squad (Cert. 15)

Adapted from the DC Comics series this new all-guns blazing franchise introduces a group of super-villains given a shot at redemption in exchange for embarking on a deadly heroic mission.

The “worst of the worst” are headed up by Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), with one of DC's most infamous villains, the Joker (Jared Leto) taking up the mantle of the movie’s bad guy.

Thanks to a savvy marketing campaign the ‘#Skwad’ is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and rounds off this season at the Hippodrome with a bang.
