The ALLNIGHTER [Spring 2009]
FRIDAY WEEK 7 (20th Feb) - doors open 7.30pm
The AllNighter is WSC's flagship event, and one not to be missed. It's a night of great films and interval entertainment (including a film quiz and raffle with the chance to win hundreds of pounds' worth of prizes including a Nintendo Wii and the chance to go Aquasphering), creating an atmosphere second to none! Tickets will be on sale before films during Week 7 and at the event itself. Tickets sold on the door will be on a first come, first served basis so buy early to avoid disappointment!
Returning from the funeral of his over-achieving twin brother, slacker Jerry Shaw (LaBeouf) finds his bank account inflated and his apartment filled with explosives, forged documents and weapons. When a phone call warns him the FBI are seconds away from his apartment, Jerry panics and is apprehended by Agents Morgan (Thornton) and Perez (Dawson). However, the mysterious caller orchestrates his escape, placing him in the path of single mum Rachel Holloman (Monaghan). Together they become entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse…
In the pursuit of realism on a big budget war movie, a group of actors, including the action star desperate for an Oscar, Tugg Speedman (Stiller), the drugged-up comedian, Jeff Portnoy (Black), and the Australian method actor, Kirk Lazarus (Downey Jr), are left in the jungle to fend for themselves. Now facing death at the hands of a long drug gang they must use their very unique skills to survive and make it back home.
The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!
The Incredibles follows a family of former superheroes, now protected by the witness protection program after many lawsuits were filed against them forcing them into retirement. Bob Parr/Mr Incredible has never quite got over the good old days of being a superhero. While the rest of the family try to carry on as ‘normal’, Syndrome (a villain with a grudge) abducts Mr Incredible and it is up to the rest of the family to display their unique superpowers to save the day.
The Fifth Element is an oddball comedy thriller set in the 23rd century, where Korben Dallas (Willis) pilots a flying taxi cab amongst the soaring skyscrapers of a gloriously technicolour metropolis. With an un-named evil threatening the universe, the mysterious ‘fifth element’ – a genetically reconstructed alien woman called Leeloo (Jovovich) – literally falls into Korben’s lap, and he is embroiled in a fantastically convoluted plot that entails an intergalactic cruise, an archeological dig, a hyperreal DJ and a supremely sarcastic and evil villain (Oldman).
