The Muppets are back! And this time they are taking on the world in an exciting and hilarious new spy thriller that will take you on a whirlwind adventure of mistaken identity, dastardly sidekicks and double dealing doppelgangers. Featuring star turns from Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell, and packed with celebrity cameos, Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire gang on a global tour including stops in Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows them overseas as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine, the World’s Number One Criminal, and dead-ringer for Kermit.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 - possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
THE BOOK THIEF Tickets on sale now Based on the beloved international bestselling book, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, an extraordinary and courageous young girl sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany.

For Liesel and Max, the power of words and imagination become the only escape from the tumultuous events happening around them. The Book Thief is a life-affirming story of survival and of the resilience of the human spirit.

Unknown to Bruce, Julia has issues all of her own and, luckily for him, she also has a secret passion. But then there’s Drew (Chris O’Dowd), his alpha male colleague and king-monkey of the office, determined to get in the way...

Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) is a carefree party animal whose life is rocked to the core when he contracts HIV from a one-night stand. As Ron faces up to his condition, he begins to explore the medical options available to him, finding out that not only is the US government actively preventing HIV patients from accessing certain treatments, but it is also colluding with the pharmaceutical industry to prescribe expensive and harmful ones. There are shades of Erin Brockovich in this David and Goliath story, but it’s a measure of his brilliance that director Jean-Marc Vallée keeps us guessing how it will play out.
Breaking Bad’s two-time Emmy-winner Aaron Paul stars as hard-up mechanic and underground car racer Tobey Marshall, who is out for revenge after being jailed for a crime he didn’t commit. The object of his righteous anger is arrogant Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper), a wealthy car nut who involved sometime girlfriend Julia Maddon (Imogen Poots) in the betrayal that put Tobey behind bars. As the two men square up for the highpoint of the annual racing calendar, Tobey has to take tough decisions involving both Julia and his young protégé (Harrison Gilbertson). The film is based on the eponymous grand-daddy of motor-racing video games.

Tickets on sale: Wed 26 Mar
Showing from: Fri 11 Apr
A tall, handsome ‘preacher’ - his knuckles eerily tattooed with ‘love’ and ‘hate’ - roams the countryside, spreading the gospel... and leaving a trail of murdered women in his wake. To Reverend Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum), the work of the Lord has more to do with condemning souls than saving them, especially when his own interests are involved. Now his sights are set on 10,000 dollars - and two little children are the only ones who know where it is. ‘Chill...dren!’ the preacher croons to the terrified boy and girl hiding in the cold, dark cellar... innocent young lambs who refuse to be led astray.

STARRED UP Showing from: Fri 11 Apr Tickets on sale: Wed 2 Apr Titled after the practice of consigning violent young offenders to adult prisons, David Mackenzie’s film kicks off in high gear as Eric is strip-searched by hardened warders before entering a bleak cell where he immediately fashions a deadly weapon from prisonissue toiletries. Ferocious fights with inmates and staff evince that the emotionally stunted Eric knows no other way of communicating his deeper feelings. This is further illuminated when we learn that his father is king of the wing, dishing out brutal punishment to anyone who breaks his rules. What hope there is for Eric’s rehabilitation is in the hands of Rupert Friend’s posh and distrusted social worker, but against Eric’s sullen obduracy, he fights a seemingly losing battle of wills in this affecting, starkly stunning work.

Beginning in 2009, Academy Award winning documentarian Alex Gibney followed Armstrong for four years chronicling his return to cycling after retirement, as he tried to win his eighth title. Unexpectedly, Gibney was also there in 2012 when Armstrong admitted to doping, following a federal criminal investigation and an investigation by the US Anti-Doping Agency, that led USADA’s CEO, Travis Tygart, to conclude that Armstrong’s team had run “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”

A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-averse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure-hungry son Kip.

For this truly epic version of the biblical story, writerdirector Darren Aronofsky applies his typically rich vision to Noah (Russell Crowe) and the challenges he faces. Dire premonitions from Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins) convince Noah of God’s wrath towards nonbelievers, and so against all odds he and his family build a vessel capable of saving enough animals, and a few humans, for a new and better world. But the fearsome if ultimately fearful Tubal Cain and his sceptical cohort determine that their efforts should be far from plain sailing. The film’s extraordinary special effects and topicality in a time of climate change guarantee Noah as a landmark movie experience.
