The Secret Life of Pets


If you’re a secret (or not so secret) Minions fan, this new film by the makers of Despicable Me is worth paying attention to.

Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets has just released its first trailer, giving hilarious insights into what pets really get up to when you’re not around.

From a sausage dog getting a tickle from a food mixer to a poodle in a stately home moshing to heavy metal, the trailer offers little vignettes into what our much-loved animal companions are really thinking.

The Secret Life of Pets, which stars Louis C.K and Steve Coogan among others, will be released in cinemas in Summer 2016.

‘Summer of Love and Hate’ jars by Marmite


Unilever has revealed new limited edition jars for its infamous Marmite product, just for this summer.

Playing on the polarised reactions that the spread produces (you either love it or hate it), Marmite has introduced two brand new designs for its iconic jars: ‘Summer of Love’ and ‘Summer of Hate’.

The designs, available from July to September, were inspired by Woodstock and the Summer of Love, reflected in the colourful Sixties-style labels and the retro typography.

This vintage throwback is being used to promote Marmite’s ‘lighter summery blend’, which it describes as a ‘slight twist on the traditional recipe’.

Take a closer look at the jar designs here and tell us which one you’ll be buying – although be warned, less than a hundred ‘Summer of Hate’ jars will be made available (one for each day of British Summer).
