Three decades after "Midnight's Children" catapulted Salman Rushdie to literary glory, a film of the novel feels like "closing the circle" after his dark years in hiding, he says.
Continuing the Transformers formula of turning a popular Hasbro toy range into films is Battleship, which sees some battleships take on... some other battleships. Probably. It's based on a boardgame and it stars Rihanna as a US Navy weapons specialist, so it's probably not aimed at the art film circuit.
