But while New England's trees certainly put on an impressive display, our own woodlands also make a splendid seasonal splash. Here are some of the best spots for kaleidoscopic leafy loveliness.

When is a horror film not a horror film? When it's a sober social drama about life in a concrete Stockholm suburb in the 1980s, and when it's a sensitive portrait of the friendship which develops between two lonely children - one of whom happens to be a vampire. There are bursts of black comedy and some ingeniously choreographed throat-biting, but LTROI never gives way to horror cliche. It's the wintry atmosphere that lingers as much as the severed heads.

The news that Harrison Ford is Hollywood's highest-earning actor may come as a surprise to some. After all, isn't he a bit of a has-been? His last film, Crossing Over, grossed less than $500,000 at the US box office. Yet according to Forbes, the 66-year-old action star earned nearly $65m in the 12 months between June 2008 and 2009.
