The 88th Academy Awards aren't far off, and to mark the occasion we've done something really quite silly. That is, we've retitled Oscar nominated movies as they might be, were they set in London (although a couple of the original films feature London anyway). No doubt you've got some puns of your own, so check out this list, and give us your best shot in the comments.

A Hackney hipster is imprisoned for the murder of his wife, but finds solace in Morgan Freeman and a pop-up eatery specialising in braised lamb.

Colin Firth is put through a number of stirring montages, culminating in a heated announcement over a train station Tannoy system at rush hour.
Julia Roberts plays a small-time south east London lawyer who fearlessly takes on The Powers That Be (aka Lewisham Council).
The Elephant and Castle Man
