More films with Eddie Izzard and Judi Dench is something that the world needs. They starred together in Stephen Frears’ Victoria & Abdul in 2017 and now they reunite in the Andy Goddard-directed Six Minutes To Midnight which will be released by IFC Films in theaters and on demand starting today.
Written by Izzard, Goddard and Celyn Jones, Six Minutes To Midnight is based on true events from 1939. The film follows teacher Thomas Miller (Izzard) who has taken a last-minute and controversial role teaching English to the daughters of high-ranking Nazis at the Augusta-Victoria College, Bexhill-on-Sea – a finishing school on the south coast of England.
Under the watchful eye of their headmistress Miss Rocholl (Dench), and her devout assistant Ilse Keller (Carla Juri), the girls practice their English and learn how to represent the ideal of German womanhood.
When the body of a former teacher is discovered, it triggers a sequence of deadly events and leaves Thomas running from the police with the threat of being hanged for murder.
The film also stars Jim Broadbent, James D’Arcy, Maria Dragus, Tijan Marei and Franziska Brandmeier.

If you have ever watched The Eric Andre Show, then you will probably know what to expect from his upcoming film Bad Trip…or maybe it will all be unexpected because the comedian and actor knows how to keep everyone on their toes — and it is a joy to watch.
Dropping on Netflix today and directed by Kitao Sakurai, the hidden camera comedy is cut from the same cloth as feature films like Jackass and Bad Grandpa. In fact, the movie comes from the guys that brought you those bundles of joy.
Starring Andre, Lil Rel Howery, Michaela Conlin, Tiffany Haddish, and a bunch of real-life innocent bystanders the comedy (written by Andre, Sakurai and Andre) follows two best friends as they go on a cross-country road trip. Sounds fun, right? Well, they are traveling cross country in a stolen car from one of the friends’ sisters who broke out of jail. Now, she is chasing them. Lots of hilarity ensues. Don’t believe me?
