Aladdin

Aladdin
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Numan Acar, Billy Magnussen, Alan Tudyk, Frank Welker

Disney’s live-action version of 1992’s Aladdin features a fun, fast-talking and scene-stealing Smith and terrific work from Massoud and Scott as Aladdin and Jasmine, but against that there’s some weird VFX, odd directorial choices and a well-intentioned but clunky female empowerment number. Enjoyable and entertaining nevertheless.

Men in Black: International

Men in Black International
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: F. Gary Gray
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rafe Spall, Les Twins, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson

Molly (T. Thompson) is a wannabe MIB agent who’s given a chance by Agent O (E. Thompson) and teamed up with golden boy Agent H (Hemsworth). It’s not so much that it’s bad, more that the franchise wasn’t much to begin with: here, a CGI-heavy story relies far too much on Hemsworth’s insouciant charm. A high-budget non-event.

Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Dark Phoenix
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 53min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Kinberg
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Jessica Chastain

When Jean Grey (Turner) is involved in a space rescue that goes awry, her malevolent alter ego Dark Phoenix is let out of the box. There’s real heft to the plot and characterisation, and Turner lives up to her growing maturity, but then it’s like it runs out of time and ideas, relapsing into routine, effects-drive action.

The Odeon Leicester Square bills itself as 'Europe's premiere cinema' and it's true in more than one way; the largest single-screen cinema in the UK is also the flagship of the entire Odeon chain, and the venue for numerous European and world film premieres. A towering monument of polished black granite dating from 1937, it dominates Leicester Square and its 1683-seat auditorium is fully equipped to show 35mm, 70mm and digital films. A refubishment was completed in 2018.

Next door are the Odeon Studios, five much smaller screens. All the screens have wheelchair spaces although, paradoxically, studios 2–5 don't have wheelchair access. Audio description and subtitled performances are available for selected screenings.

Leicester Square is a pedestrian space and the nearest car parks are in Whitcomb Street or Chinatown Car Park in Newport Place. Tube: Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Rail: Charing Cross Station is about 10 minutes away on foot.
