Super Humans and the Supernatural

In just over two years’ time, Channel 4 will begin broadcasting the 2012 Paralympic games. To mark this occasion, Inside Incredible Athletes profiles some of the elite British Paralympic athletes who excel in their field.

The programme, which airs on August 29, will use state-of-the-art scanning technology to create ‘biomechanical portraits’ of the athletes, revealing for the first time the inside story of these incredible humans. Make a date in your diary…

From special athletes to special effects. Over on, among a whole heap of trailers and video interviews, is a preview of The Last Airbender.

This big-buck adventure fantasy from M. Night Shyamalan is currently doing the numbers stateside, and features Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire and our very own Skins. See if you can spot him in this clip.

He looks in his element… You can, of course, watch Dev any time in his role of Anwar in Series 1 and 2 of Skins right here on 4oD. And if you’re a Skins fan, you might be intrigued to know that the brand new cast of Skins 5 has just been revealed online over on…

Talking of fresh blood, some news to make anyone’s skin crawl. Film4 FrightFest is back. From 26-30 August, the UK’s top fantasy and horror event is taking place at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. Here, wide-eyed fright freaks can satisfy their blood lust with 36 films on two giant screens over four, gore-fuelled days.

If you’re over 18, you can win a pair of weekend passes to this celebration of carnage in our new online competition.

Be afraid. Be very afraid…

    Lovely stuff, cheers Richard! Also on – Jason Schwartzman introduces his Scott Pilgrim character Gideon Graves. He segues into a British accent at the end, with, frankly, mixed results.
