Screenrush.co.uk is set to become a favourite with all film fans, but users can also personalise their experience.

A number of new partnerships currently under negotiation will soon allow Screenrush.co.uk to launch a TV database, including channel schedules, series and cast information.
Alexandra Ouzilleau, Managing Director, Screenrush.co.uk, commented: “With the growing amount of information available online, we wanted to offer film fans a one stop shop for their movie queries and a new home to chat film online. Instead of having to visit one site for show times, one for trailers and another for tickets sales, Screenrush.co.uk will streamline your internet experience. Our goal is to be one of the top five film sites in the UK by the end of the year and half a million users before the site has officially launched is a promising first step!”
