Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her. Magical, funny and surprising stuff from Spielberg, lacking only some of the menace of Dahl's original, but genuinely heartwarming.

  • 123 min

  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

Deepwater Horizon
  • 2016

  • Directed by: Peter Berg
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich

The real-life tale of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, in which an oil rig explosion killed eleven men and caused the largest oil spill in American history. Berg touches on issues of corporate negligence and recklessness, but the real focus is on the courage of individuals such as Wahlberg's blue collar engineer. A solid nailbiter.

Rocky (Levy), Money (Zovatto) and Alex (Minnette) rob rich people's houses, but when they break into the house of a blind Iraq War veteran (Lang) they get more than they bargained for. Nerve-shredding home invasion thriller with great control of suspense, surprise and pace.

Ice Age: Collision Course

Ice Age: Collision Course
  • 2016
  • 100 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mike Thurmeier/Galen T. Chu
  • Cast: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Simon Pegg, Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah

Same story as always: global catastrophe threatens Sid, Manny and Diego and they have to get to safety. It manages to be relatively fresh, thanks to the increased amount of time given to accident-prone Scrat and his Tex Avery-ish antics in defence of his giant acorn; surely the lovable rodent has earned his own franchise.

The Infiltrator
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 127 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Brad Furman
  • Cast: Bryan Cranston, John Leguizamo, Diane Kruger

Robert Mazur (Cranston) is a US Customs official who goes undercover to infiltrate the drug cartels and take down the notorious Pablo Escobar. Every cliché of the genre is present, from the resentful wife (Aubrey) to the impulsive assassinations, but Cranston is consistently sympathetic and Furman delivers the occasional sharp jab.

  • US
  • 102 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Travis Knight
  • Cast: Art Parkinson, Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara, Ralph Fiennes, Brenda Vaccaro, George Takei

One-eyed origami expert Kubo (Parkinson) joins forces with no-nonsense Monkey (Theron) and goofy human/insect warrior Beetle (McConaughey) on a quest to defeat the Moon King (Fiennes). Breathtakingly beautiful stop-motion animation, maybe too scary for young kids, but with plenty of humour, fine voice performances and a story full of heart.

  • Directed by: David F Sandberg
  • Cast: Maria Bello, Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman

Sophie (Bello), a woman with a history of mental health issues, finds herself stalked by an entity that only comes out when the lights are turned off. Skilfully-made if bleak debut by Swedish writer-director, with convincing work from Bello and some grippingly tense sequences.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lee Byung-hun, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, Martin Sensmeier, Peter Sarsgaard, Haley Bennett

Sam Chisolm (Washington) is a bounty hunter tasked with ridding Rosewater Creek of evil prospector Bogue (Sarsgaard) and his goons, so he recruits the titular seven-minus-one. Unsubtle remake of the 1960 original; the stunt work may have improved but it's all a bit empty

Frank (Rogen), a sausage, lives in a grocery store where he and his fellow foods excitedly look forward to life after being bought; but then he and hot-dog bun girlfriend Brenda (Wiig) learn the horrible truth. Rude, funny and unexpectedly profound, the best slice of adult animation since South Park.

Little Max (Louis CK) is a small dog who gets very lonely when his beloved human Katie (Kemper) leaves each day. But then she brings home a huge, shaggy rescue mutt (Stonestreet) and hijinks ensue. Undeniably derivative but cute and energetic comedy sustained by its fine voice cast.

  • Directed by: David Ayer
  • Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne

A group of incarcerated supervillains is recruited to undertake dangerous missions. The result is so conventional, it's twee: Deadshot (Smith) just wants to be a good dad, Diablo (Hernandez) spends the whole film moping and Harley Quinn (Robbie)'s idea of bad behaviour is breaking a window. With unconvincing effects and cliché-ridden dialogue, it's plain awful.

Lake District, 1930: the plucky Walker siblings go up against fierce local gels Nancy and Peggy for possession of an island, while reclusive uncle Jim (Spall) is stalked by a sinister foreigner (Scott). Charmingly nostalgic kids' adventure, subtly modernised, with well-cast kids and Macdonald a pleasure as always. Sweetly satisfying as a cream tea.
