Assassin Club

Starring: Henry Goulding, Noomi Rapace, Daniela Melchior

Starring: Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Diego Calva

Lengthy and challenging, Babylon wrenches wonderful performance form Pitt and Robbie to tell the story of excess and depravity in early Hollywood. It’s fair to say that critics have been divided, but those who loved it, LOVED it.

Certificate 18  


Starring: Josh Duhamel, Elisha Cuthbert, Mel Gibson

Telling the mainly true story of a criminal who goes on a bank-robbing spree while being hunted by cops and trying to hold down a relationship, Bandit is by turns funny, dramatic, action-packed and heartfelt.

Bank of Dave

Starring: Rory Kinnear, Joel Frye, Phoebe Dynevor

This true-life story of Burnley man Dave Fishwick (Kinnear), who in 2011 set up his own bank in order to serve his community, does the impossible. It takes the world of banking – or at least Dave’s bit of it – and turns it into it funny and supremely charming entertainment.

House Party

Starring: Tosin Cole, Jacob Latimore, Karen Obilam

If you’re of a certain age (which is a nice way of saying, ‘if you’re ancient’) you’ll remember the original House Party, a raucous comedy starring hip hop duo Kid ’n’ Play. This new version is described as a ‘remix’ – where the laughs come just as thick and fast.

The Man from Toronto

Starring: Kevin Hart, Woody Harrelson, Kaley Cuoco

Hart and Harrelson make a great pairing as a hitman and a loser who are mistaken for each other at an Airbnb. True, the critics have not been kind to this one, but if it’s funny, undemanding entertainment you’re after, this is your man. 

Certificate 12


Starring: Storm Reid, Nia Long, Joaquim de Almeida

A tale of a teenager who hunts for her missing mother using only the tech at her fingertips – proper edge-of-your-seat stuff with a wicked twist in its tail.

My Policeman

Starring: Harry Styles, Emma Corrin, Gina McKee

By any standards, Harry Styles is so hot right now (as Zoolander’s Mugatu might say). He’s won Grammy awards, Brit awards, acting accolades and now the lead role in this poignant and acclaimed drama about a love triangle between a married cop, a museum curator, and his partner.

Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre

Starring: Jason Statham, Aubrey Plaza, Josh Hartnett

Guy Richie’s latest finds him once again working with Statham and – in an absolutely side-splitting, showstopping, scene-stealing turn, – Hugh Grant for a tale that you could safely describe as Mission Impossible meets Snatch.

She Said

Starring: Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan

The investigation into movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is the subject of this drama focusing on New York Times reporters Megan Twohey (Mulligan) and Jodi Kantor (Kazan). The result is an absorbing slice of procedural journalism that details the legwork in full.

The Son

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby, Zen McGrath, Anthony Hopkins

No doubt about it, The Son is an emotionally shattering experience – just as you might expect from Zeller, the director of The Father. In it, Jackman and Kirby play the couple who must look after Jackman’s grown-up son – and let’s just say the new arrangement doesn’t go well.

Certificate 15

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Starring: Kunal Nayyar, Lucy Hale, David Arquette

A very sweet and romantic tearjerker here, with Nayyar as Fikry, who in the wake of his wife’s death is falling into ever deeper despair. However, a visitor to his bookstore is about to change his life, and if you’re wondering how, well, the clue is in the word ‘romantic’.


Starring: Cate Blanchett, Noémie Merlant, Adam Gopnik

On one thing we can all agree: Blanchett absolutely owns this acclaimed, provocative, and very timely drama. As Lydia Tár, a conductor accused of sexual abuse, she gives a towering, note-perfect performance that has, quite rightly, been nominated for every award worth having.
