The Aviator
• We speak to the film’s seasoned director Martin Scorsese about his determined decision to create an encompassing, truthful and intriguing biopic of the late aviation and film mogul Howard Hughes, how his aversion to CGI effects waned during film-making, and how Kate Beckinsale and Cate Blanchett wooed him with their acting abilities to secure the roles of Hollywood darlings Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn.

• We also speak to star Leonardo DiCaprio about the demanding but rewarding experience of portraying such a remarkable yet tormented figure, plus he discusses the working and personal relationship that has been forged between him and Martin Scorsese on their second film together.
