A Field In England Proves A Twitter Hit, The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond reunite and Russell Crowe on a Krypton prequel in the latest Tweets Of The Week

The release of A Field In England , the latest from Kill List/Sightseers director Ben Wheatley, last Friday wasn't exciting simply because Wheatley is one of British cinemas great hopes for the future. In a first, the film debuted on TV, DVD, online and in cinemas on the same day. As you might expect, it was a Twitter hit with " A Field In England " trending twice during the day and throughout its broadcast on Film4 at 10:45pm. Despite being a, let's just say "less-than-accessible", experience the film ranked 9th in Channel 4's most-mentioned broadcasts and number 6 on Friday, while the TV broadcast proved the most popular platform. As it was a premiere, Film4 didn't tweet throughout the entire broadcast, meaning the Twitter-traffic was entirely user-driven. A successful experiment then, and something we're likely to see more and more of in the future. To find out exactly how the film performed on each platform head to the Film4 blog (opens in new tab) .

@kanyewest I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.

@HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN Pacific Rim is the ultimate otaku film that all of us had always been waiting for. Who are you, if you are Japanese and won't watch this?

@radiomaru Southland Tales is maybe the ultimate distillation of the 2000s as a decade

@wilw I just deleted the Google Reader bookmark from my browser. I felt like it needed Scotty playing bagpipes to properly say goodbye.
