2015 Studio Movie Preview: Sony Pictures

It’s no secret that Sony as a company has had its problems. The fact is is that they have been in trouble for some time now, and even though they were hacked beyond our imaginations last fall, it’s not going to stop them from making movies. 2014 wasn’t a terrible year for Sony Pictures, it just wasn’t what they were hoping for, obviously. Let’s see if this year can be better for them with this 2015 preview for Sony Pictures.

Lambert & Stamp

Aspiring filmmakers Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert set out to find a subject for their underground movie, one that will reflect the way it feels to be young and dissatisfied in postwar London.

Lambert and Stamp searched for months and finally found in a band called the High Numbers a rebellious restlessness that was just what they were looking for.
