  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Written by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton

Lucy (Johansson) is forced to be a drug mule by crime boss Mr Jang (Choi), but when the drugs leak into her system, she acquires superhuman powers. Insane and largely humourless but ambitious and entertaining action flick, and it's satisfying to see a formidably intelligent and physically ferocious female at the centre.

  • US
  • 161 min

  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Malin Åkerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Patrick Wilson

Film version of Alan Moore's 1985 New York City-set graphic novel, which saw a group of costumed vigilantes who became outlawed in 1977 remember the good old days when they could mete out justice in the city. Classic pulp dialogue has been kept, some of the camera angles are exactly the same as the animated drawings - essentially Snyder has filmed the comic book. A faithful, atmospheric and entertaining adaptation.

IMAX

The Glasgow Cineworld IMAX was the first of its kind north of the border, and it received a major upgrade in 2013. The new 62' x 82' screen is the biggest cinema screen in Scotland, and a new digital projection system allows a larger variety of content to be screened, from the newest blockbusters to educational material supporting the Glasgow Science Centre's schools programme. A Starbucks has been added, with views across the Canting Basin. In the future, Cineworld plans to install its next-generation laser digital projection system.

The nearest train station is Exhibition Centre (Argyle Line), located across the river on the other side of SECC – cross the motorway using the covered walkway. Cessnock subway station is just under a mile away on Cessnock Street, south of Festival Park.

The nearest bus stops are First Bus 90 on Paisley Road West; McGill's 23 & 26 on Pacific Drive; and the City Sightseeing tour bus on Pacific Quay.

Public car parking is available at Concert Square car park, opposite the cinema, or you can use the GSC pay car park (£3/day.) For sat nav, enter the postcode: G51 1EA.
