As the name suggests, the AllNighter is where we stay up overnight to watch six great films. This term's AllNighter will be on the Friday of Week 7 (18th February). Tickets will be available from our stall in Cholo on Wednesday & Thursday (16th and 17th February) 11am-3pm and on the door before the event from 6pm (subject to availability).
We kick off the night with Blade Trinity - the third and final blockbuster in the Blade Trilogy. Wesley Snipes returns as the half-vampire Blade to face his most deadly enemy yet, whilst trying to avoid the unwanted attention of the FBI. Luckily for him, he gets some help this time around in the form of the Nightstalkers, a group of fellow vampire slayers, including the iPod-toting Jessica Biel. With a host of characters both new and returning, this big budget action extravaganza contains some incredible action, unexpected plot twists and more than its fair share of laughs.
Following this, the second film is director Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical comedy, Almost Famous. William Miller is just a 15 year old boy but that doesn't stop him getting hired by Rolling Stone magazine to tour with and write about Stillwater, a rock band based loosely on the bands Crowe worked with himself. This humorous drama follows William as he is forced to confront rockers, groupies and everything else that it entails. It is quite simply the embodiment of everything rock and roll.
The third film, Cube, is a cult classic with one of the most imaginative concepts in movie history. When seven complete strangers awaken to find themselves trapped inside a giant cube, they must utilise all of their skills to in an effort to escape their prison and the many deadly traps that lurk inside. What follows is an intelligent tale of suspense, paranoia and suspicion, as they and you never know quite what to expect next. You will not be falling asleep during this one.
The fourth film will be our anticipated Mystery Film. Over the years the WSC AllNighter has had a wide variety of different and exciting mystery films, including E.T. 20th Anniversary, Plunkett & Macleane, Kiss of the Dragon, Thirteen Days and not forgetting the remarkable House of Flying Daggers! Over the years the Films and Admin Officers have used every possible technique to secure a fantastic AllNighter film for you, and this time is no exception! Click here to see wha the mystery was!
For those who have made it this far, sit back and enjoy the penultimate film of the night: Pixar's animated treat, A Bug's Life. Let misfit-ant Flik take you on a rollercoaster ride of a journey to recruit brave and noble warriors to save his colony from an invasion of deadly grasshoppers. However when those whom he recruits turn out to be something different altogether, the fate of the colony itself is left hanging in the balance. From the people who brought you The Incredibles, Monster's Inc and Toy Story, expect witty dialog, great characters and animation that will leave you breathless.
For the final film of the night - and give yourself a pat on the back for making it this far - WSC present one of the greatest movies of all time, Quentin Tarantino's superb second picture, Pulp Fiction. The script is a work of art, intertwining multiple plotlines, punctured by some absolutely chilling twists, with a hefty dose of his trademark dialogue and black humour, which together with brilliant performances from an A-list cast (Travolta, Jackson, Thurman, Willis, etc) and truly innovative direction, make this a film that promises to keep you awake right until the morning.
The seats in L3 can get a little uncomfortable after 12 hours, so you might want to bring a pillow and/or sleeping bag!
In between films there will be 20 minute intervals so members of the audience can stretch their legs and there will be giveaways and other great entertainment.
This is also the only time in our season that the University allows us to have food and drink in L3 - so whatever energy drinks or snacks that are needed to keep the audience going until the last film finishes can be consumed, but we aren't allowed hot food or alcohol in the auditorium.
The atmosphere in L3 is something special - you have to be there to experience it!
