TheWrap by Elizabeth Weitzman

This was, undeniably, a risky proposition; no one wants to airbrush history. But by thoughtfully employing cutting-edge technology, Jackson has instead created an essential portal connecting audiences of the present to his subjects in the past.

Empire by Jonathan Pile

The Telegraph by Robbie Collin
