  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Michael Douglas, Randall Park, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne

Sequel to Marvel's 2015 superhero flick Ant-Man, which sees the eponymous shrinking hero (Rudd) joining forces with the Wasp (Lilly) to rescue her long-lost mother (Pfeiffer) from a quantum realm. Silly yet also subtle, the film brims with chemistry from its strong cast.

  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore

The Coen brothers give their unique twist to a Chandler-esque LA noir, as 70s hippy throwback Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski (Bridges) is drawn into the sordid affairs of his millionaire namesake. Suddenly he has to sleuth his way through disorganised crime. Trademark oddball characters, surreal imagery and excellent performances grace this virtuoso comedy.

BlacKkKlansman
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • Directed by: Spike Lee
  • Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace, Alec Baldwin

In 1978, Ron Stallworth (Washington), the first black man to join the Colorado Springs police, goes undercover in the Ku Klux Klan, with the help of fellow officer Flip (Driver). A stranger-than-fiction true story fusing buddy cop traditions with powerful recollections of cruelty, and anger at Trump’s America. Fascinating, funny and riveting.

  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians
  • 2018

  • Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh

When Chinese-American college professor Rachel (Wu) meets the family of boyfriend Nick (Golding), she discovers that they’re incredibly rich. A fairly stale star-crossed lovers’ story is refreshed by a cast of East Asian stars and entertaining local colour.

The Equalizer 2

  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Pedro Pascal, Bill Pullman

Robert McCall (Washington) works as a Lyft driver in Boston but when his black-ops handler (Leo) is murdered, he sets out to find her killer. Uninspired sequel which hypocritically preaches noble virtue while dispensing cheap thrills and physical mutilation.

Nick (Thomas) is a lovesick no-hoper whose mate Shane (Animashaun) drags him to a festival after Nick’s girlfriend (Tointon) has broken up with him. Thomas is game for seemingly any level of humiliation and while it doesn’t always hit its targets, it’s exuberant fun.

  • Cast: Adam Sandler, Kathryn Hahn, Andy Samberg

Third instalment of the Hotel Transylvania franchise, which sees daughter Mavis (Gomez) take on the role of overbearing parent when her father Dracula (Sandler) falls for the ship's captain Ericka (Hahn) whilst on a monsters-only cruise. A funny and good-humoured flick, with plenty of goofy gags and musical numbers that'll please the whole family.

  • 2018
  • US

  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

  • 2018

  • Directed by: Christoph Lauenstein, Wolfgang Lauenstein
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ian Coppinger

Luis (Maloney) is an 11-year-old boy obsessed with aliens, who gets visited by some shape-changing extra-terrestrial blobs. It has an attractive sheen and likeable characters, but the tone is uncertain and it’s too derivative and unsure of itself to win many admirers.

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

  • Cast: Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Cliff Curtis

Jonas (Statham) is a diver who’s brought to an underwater research facility to rescue people from a sinister threat—the titular giant shark. It’s a $150m B-movie; the creature itself is no masterpiece, and the plot is ridiculous, but Statham carries off the outlandish premise with a confident performance in a role he was born to play.

James Silva (Wahlberg) leads a crack CIA team to transport a government witness who's been targeted for assassination. Much double-crossing, fistfights and absurd technobabble, and while Wahlberg is over-intense, the physical stuff is well-handled by Rousey and Uwais. Straight-up, boneheaded action.

Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is back for the franchise's sixth entry, and teams up with old IMF colleagues Luther (Rhames), Benji (Pegg), fellow spy Ilsa (Ferguson) and CIA enforcer August Walker (Cavill) to track down some stolen plutonium. Despite a few cliches, Cruise goes above and beyond with his stunt work in this first-class summer blockbuster that's guaranteed to leave you on the edge of your seat.

Two Vatican investigators and a local (Bichir, Farmiga and Bloquet) arrive at a cloistered Romanian abbey in 1952 to investigate a nun’s suicide. The latest in the Conjuring series is the weakest, with Aarons playing nun demon Valak to the hilt but ultimately let down by overstated shocks and erratic plotting.

  • Directed by: Shane Black
  • Cast: Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane

A Predator comes to Earth, pursued by others of his kind, and humans are caught in the middle. Black’s reboot of the franchise lacks his usual vim, there are too many set pieces with no time to engage, and there’s next to no tension. It’s neither visceral enough for the fans, nor engaging enough for the rest of us.

David (Cho) is mourning the loss of his wife, but when his daughter (La) disappears, he has to look for her with resourceful cop Rosemary (Messing). A childish whodunnit with a ridiculously contrived story, concluding with a convoluted solution that’s farcical to anyone with a basic knowledge of police work.

  • Cast: Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding

Stephanie (Kendrick), a mild-mannered suburban mom, tries to track down her friend Emily (Lively) after she mysteriously disappears. A twisty tale of murder, scheming and scams with excellent work from the two leads and the rest of the cast; a deliciously outrageous cocktail of a movie.

Audrey (Kunis) finds that her ex-boyfriend is a spy, and she and her best friend Morgan (McKinnon) are forced into completing his mission. Hardly the most original plot, but it’s briskly paced, the script is sharp and often surreal, and McKinnon in particular is on fire, comedically speaking, with ostensible leading lady Kunis a fine and very game foil.

Youngblood (Jackson) is a coke dealer who decides to hustle one last big score and leave the business. The script gives it a political spin that ties it into the modern world and the copious B-movie exploitation elements keep things fun. In its way, as smart, distinctive and sharp as the original.

Disgruntled that so many big players in the DC Universe have their own movie but they themselves don’t, the Teen Titans pressure hotshot director Jade Wilson (Bell) to make one. Inventive and very funny animated superhero comedy which is a treat for kids and adults alike.

Dennis (Ameen) is a young man who vows vengeance for the death of his older brother. Elba directs with assurance, with gloomy 80s London coming across with tasty authority, but it never quite transcends its pulpy material. Still, Ameen is excellent, it’s got a thumping soundtrack and it rings with anger and energy.
