NEWS reaches Review of the mounting excitement around a film made by celebrated Camden Town film company Fulwell 73.

Called After The Screaming Stops, it’s a documentary about the celebrated 1980s boy band, Bros.

Directed by David Souter and Joe Pearlman, who had exclusive access to the brothers Matt and Luke Goss, it tells how the boys were, for a brief time, the biggest-selling act in the world.

Their album Push went to No 1 in 20 countries, and they were the youngest performers to play Wembley – but after their meteoric rise came a fall which felt just as quick.

Souter and Pearlman follow their reunion 28 years on, with a huge whack of family politics, brotherly antagonism, and the pressures of fame thrown in.

Review chatted to David, who tells us that the brothers still command a huge, and rather infatuated fanbase.

“For the premiere, to be held as part of the London Film Festival on Wednesday, you could apply for tickets by joining the BFI,” he says. “So many Brosettes [as their fans were known] tried to do so they crashed the website.”

• Nicholas Cage is at it again: the actor has become known for his intense portrayals of people under the influence, and this time – under the direction of Panos Cosmatos – he is flouncing about in a film called Mandy, a gruesome, LSD-saturated thriller where Cage’s lover Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) is murdered by a gang of cultists and he sets out to wreak bloody mayhem on those responsible for his loss.
