Amy, Kiki and Carla are back for this outrageous comedy, which finds them sick of the challenges of being a mom at Christmas and keen to actually enjoy it for once.

In the sequel to the 2015 global smash, father and stepfather, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell), have joined forces to provide their kids with the perfect Christmas. Their newfound partnership is put to the test when Dusty's old-school, macho Dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad's ultra-affectionate and emotional Dad (John Lithgow) arrive just in time to throw the holiday into complete chaos.

But as if creating the perfect Christmas wasn’t hard enough already, they have a new problem to deal with this year: their own mothers are coming to visit…

A group of firefighters risk everything to protect a town from a historic wildfire in this compelling thriller, based on real events and starring Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges and Miles Teller.

Based on the New York Times bestseller, Wonder tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of Auggie Pullman.

As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all.

While most people run from danger, the Granite Mountain Hotshots run towards it – watching over lives, homes and everything people hold dear, forging a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.

But he's forced to reconsider his attitude to the world when visited by a procession of ghosts on Christmas Eve…

When four teenagers in detention discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they find themselves thrust into the game’s jungle setting, and into the bodies of their avatars.

After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of buddies, the facade begins to crack in both women's lives – with hilariously malicious results.

But first, Clarence is given a crash course on George's life, and the multitude of selfless acts he has performed.

London, 1843. Charles Dickens, struggling financially after slow sales of his last novel, Martin Chuzzlewit, is seized with a vision of a Christmas story. When his publishers reject the idea, he decides to publish it himself, even though Christmas is only six weeks away and he hasn’t written it yet…

We also develop and promote a year round programme of film, music, theatre, literature, visual arts, & dance events. We do this because we want to see Shetland celebrated as a place where inspiration & innovation are valued; where people want to live, work & study; and we want the full social & economic potential of the islands to be achieved.

Shetland Arts is supported by Creative Scotland and core funded by the Shetland Charitable Trust. Shetland Arts is a registered charity (SCO37082).
