Q: How do I get contact details for a film star?
A: Sadly we're not able to give you Brad Pitts phone number. I wish we had it, but we don't, so don't bother asking. If you do want to get in touch with an actor or filmmaker for legitimate reasons then you can get their agent's details by subscribing to IMDb Pro. If it's not business-related then most celebrities do maintain fan clubs who will pass on your letters.

A: After registering, you can build your fanlist which will help us choose the perfect fans to go to pre screenings. Quick.. go, go, go.

Q: When is coming out/on DVD?
A: We don't know, well we may do but you can find out far more easily by checking the coming soon schedule. If it's not there then it probably hasn't been announced yet.

Q: I have spotted a mistake on the site or in the magazine. Whom should I tell?
A: E-mail a member of the team via the contact us page - one of our sub-editors would be your best bet..

Q: When is the next premiere in London?
A: We try to keep you up to date with premiere news, so keep checking back to the site. Unfortunately we will not be able to answer every email that enquires about premieres but we will do our best to help you.

Q: Can I attend a premiere?
A: Premiere tickets are not made available to the public unless they're charity premieres, in which case those on the mailing list of the relevant charity will be notified first. Other than that you'll need to win a competition. Sometimes we allow fans to come along to the premieres to ask the film stars, directors and writers questions. If you are not one of these lucky people then you can always go down there yourself. Its advisable to go down to Leicester Square and join the crowds from 2pm that day. Additional we recommend you take something warm to wear, an umbrella and something to eat!
