Title:The white king review
Description:At Saturday’s world premiere of The White King at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, husband and wife directing duo Jorg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht claimed that it took a long time to get their debut feature off the ground. One can only assume the project was green-lit in the wake of The Hunger Games and Divergent series of films, young adult actioners with similar dystopian settings and themes, which went on to be box-office smashes and cultural phenomenons. Regrettably, The White King doesn’t come close to emulating the success of the aforementioned franchises, sabotaged by a banal script and a serious lack of thrills. Prospects for any fan following, or an eventual cult status, look bleak. A series of comic strip vignettes outline the totalitarian world of The White King during the opening credits, sparking a flash of intrigue regarding the film’s style. It soon becomes clear that this initial gimmick has little relevance or consistency with the remainder of the film, as what follows is a by-the-numbers directorial treatment from Tittel and Helfrecht. Working with what is presumably a limited budget, the production has clearly had to cut corners in its depiction of “Homeland” – the futuristic backdrop where the film takes place – much to the detriment of action set pieces and visual effects.

Tuesday afternoon, a 7.1 earthquake in nearby Puebla State rocked Mexico City, some 75 miles away.

Kremlin frets as Russia's once restive Islamist region takes up political IslamRussia fought two bloody wars in its Caucasus republic of Chechnya, ostensibly to crush an emerging threat of Islamist extremism on its own soil.

What's really important about Facebook Russia AdsYes, a shadowy Russian firm with ties to the Kremlin bought about $100,000 worth of Facebook ads intended to sway voters during last year’s presidential campaign, the social media giant disclosed earlier this month.
