> Action Films

Atomic Blonde (Cert: TBC)

Baby Driver (15)

A stylish action-thriller set in Berlin on the eve of the Wall's collapse and the shifting of superpower alliances.

Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) directs rising star Ansel Elgort opposite Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx in this exhilarating, stylish and hugely entertaining action movie.

Charlize Theron stars as a top-level MI6 agent, dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy), and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardises the West's entire intelligence operation.

A talented young getaway driver relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

The Dark Tower (Cert: TBC)

Dunkirk (12A)

The ambitious and expansive story from Stephen King, brilliantly adapted for the big screen.

Acclaimed director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight, Memento) directs this stunningly cinematic World War II drama about the evacuation of Allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk.

11-year-old Jake Chambers follows clues about another dimension and is spirited away to Mid-World, where he encounters a Gunslinger (Idris Elba) who is on a quest to reach and protect the ‘Dark Tower’. The tower holds both their worlds together, and is under threat from the ruthless Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey).

Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in. Dunkirk features a prestigious cast, including Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Cillian Murphy.

> Family Friendly Films

The Emoji Movie (Cert: TBC) A hilarious family animation that unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within your messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city filled with emojis, each of whom has a single facial expression – except for one. Gene is an exuberant character, born without a filter and bursting with multiple expressions. All he wants is to be like everyone else, so, with the help of his two best friends, he goes in search of the code that will fix him.

Fireman Sam: Alien Alert! (U)

Captain Underpants (U) A deliciously silly animated adventure based on the bestselling book series.

Everyone’s favourite fireman stars in a big-screen adventure! When alien hunter Buck Douglas arrives in Pontypandy, the town gets a little over-excited at the prospect of featuring on his ‘Alien Quest’ TV show. With UFO sightings on the increase, Fireman Sam sets off to find out what’s behind all this sudden alien activity. And when one of Buck Douglas’ stunts causes a forest fire, Sam becomes even more determined to get to the bottom of the mysterious events.

This raucously subversive comedy tells the story of two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold, who hypnotise their principal into thinking he's an enthusiastic but incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants. That proves to be a good thing when it’s revealed that the new science teacher, Professor Poopypants, has an evil plan to stop children from laughing...

Victim (1961) (PG)

The Night of the Hunter (12A)

A fascinating slice of social history which helped change public opinion, and eventually the law, regarding the criminalisation of homosexuality.

To mark 100 years since the birth of Robert Mitchum, we bring you his most iconic performance, as a charismatic, ruthless conman with LOVE and HATE tattooed on his knuckles.

Early ’60s London, and gay men across the city are being blackmailed, threatening exposure at a time when consensual homosexual acts could still result in imprisonment. Basil Dearden’s classic thriller stars Dirk Bogarde in his most daring role, as a closeted, married lawyer fighting back against the blackmailers who dare to target him.

While in prison, bogus preacher Harry Powell learns his cellmate has hidden $10,000 somewhere around his house. After being released, Powell seeks out the man's family. A dark and dreamily atmospheric fairy tale of two innocents on the run from a terrifying bogeyman.

David Lynch: The Art Life (15) The Midwife (12A) An insightful and contemplative documentary about David Lynch’s life as a visual artist, narrated by the idiosyncratic filmmaker.

A sparkling French character study driven by two wonderful performances from Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot.

Lynch recounts the influence his youth had on him as an artist and his subsequent move into filmmaking. Combining home movies, stock footage, moody artworks and observations of him working on his paintings and sculptures, David Lynch: The Art Life is an immersive and compelling experience, with a deliciously strange and beautiful soundtrack.

The life of an ordered and sensible midwife becomes unexpectedly complicated when her father’s flighty former lover arrives back in Paris, having been given just a year to live. Funny, astute and gently melodramatic, this delightful film follows the two women as they learn to accept one another and, by revealing long-held secrets, try to make up for lost years.

Land of Mine (15)
