UK GDP figures to show economy has finally hit pre-crisis peak - business live - http://www.theguardian.com/busines...
Has Britain's economy finally clawed back all the activity lost since the great financial crisis? We find out at 9.30am when the latest GDP figures are released. Introduction: GDP figures to show state of the recovery But GDP per capita is still lagging Chart: Slowest recovery since at least 1920 RBS rushes out results, shares surge 9.20am BST Ed Balls has rather pre-empted today's growth figures, in an article in today's Guardian. In it, the shadow chancellor argues that there's no cause for complacent celebrations, just because GDP has reached its pre-crisis levels (assuming it does....) Not only is it two years later than the chancellors original plan said, and three years after the US reached the same point, its also the case that GDP per head wont recover to where it was for around another three years in other words, a lost decade for living standards. 9.07am BST Just over 20 minutes to wait until we learn how fast the UK economy grew in the second quarter of 2014.

Fifty Shades of Grey trailer: through a glass, daftly
Show all
The first full trailer for the S&M romance is out, and rather than filth, it offers a lot of shots of Jamie Dornan gazing out of an office. Is this just confessions of a window clinger? The first Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is here. Well, the first official Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, at least ever since the film was announced, YouTube has slowly become riddled with hundreds of fan-made Fifty Shades of Grey trailers, all of them exclusively consisting of clips from Secretary set to My Heart Will Go On. But this one's official. For Fifty Shades of Grey fans, this trailer is a big deal. It answers questions like "Will it be as dirty as the book?" "Will Jamie Dornan be a better Christian Grey than Charlie Humman?" and "How many times will Dakota Johnson say 'Holy crap' out loud before she becomes genuinely unbearable?" But for newcomers, it offers a chance to tell the story of Fifty Shades of Grey. Here is that story. Continue reading...

Guardians of the Galaxy review a whip-smart, risky space romp

A new troupe of intergalactic comedy badasses sets out to save the universe in Marvel's self-satirising superhero movie More on Guardians of the Galaxy Having amassed a huge pot of money from all those superhero movies, Marvel can afford to have a bit of fun and take some risks, and the result is this irrepressibly rollicking space romp which is likely to fill those coffers even more. Movies like this are usually described in terms of popcorn but a better comparison would be Space Dust: it's fun, wacky, explosive and bursting with artificial colours. The latter certainly gave the make-up department plenty to do. As befits a comic book story, this galaxy is populated by a rainbow nation of humanoids with bright skin tones, coloured contact lenses, ornate body art, zany hairstyles and even zany eyebrow styles. Earth figures only in the prologue, circa 1988, when our future hero, Peter Quill, is abducted by a spaceship, moments after his mother's death. All he can take with him is his...

Why I'd like to be Chewbacca in Star Wars
He's a giant dog/bear with a blood-curdling howl who oozes cool as he flies spaceships around the Star Wars galaxy and shoots clone fascists with lasers plus he saved me from the terrors of Watership Down Why I'd like to be Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink Why I'd like to be Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction Why I'd like to be Val Kilmer in Tombstone My parents named me after Luke Skywalker, so it's a happy coincidence that I love Star Wars with a ferocity located somewhere between distracting and actually dangerous. If I didn't, the first time someone quipped, "Luke, i am your father" would have been just as tiresome as the billionth; as it stands, I don't mind people making the association, and do nothing to dissuade them from their belief that they've coined a Wildean zinger of bon mottery. But it's not my force-flinging namesake that made the biggest impression on me. No, that dubious honour goes to the great walking carpet himself, Chewbacca. Or, to give him his full and...
