- 2h 17min
- Directed by: James Cameron
- Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen, William Hope, Paul Reiser
Revived from a 57-year snooze in deep space, Warrant Officer Weaver is cajoled into joining a marine rescue mission to the planet that is home for the original alien beastie. Unrelentingly paced with a terrifically gutsy performance from Weaver, this nerve-shredding sequel not only matches its predecessor but cannily surpasses it. An Oscar winner for special effects.

Sun 29 Jul
- 2h 10min
- Directed by: John Landis
- Written by: Dan Aykroyd, John Landis
- Cast: John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Carrie Fisher, John Candy, Henry Gibson
Belushi and Aykroyd are at their deadpan best in Landis' cult classic, a bonkers celebration of shabby-suited, sunglass-wearing psychopathology. Notable for its righteous anti-racism, its ludicrously destructive car chase, frisky cameos by some of the greatest soul musicians and Fisher's touching performance as Jake's bazooka-toting ex-fiancée.
Wed 10 Oct
- Directed by: Bill Holderman
- Cast: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen
Four women (Keaton, Fonda, Bergen and Steenburgen) form a book club to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and in so doing reassess their lives. Irresistibly cheeky and shamelessly cheesy ensemble drama in which older women are placed in the centre of the action, with a torrent of innuendo delivered with relish by a superior cast.

The engaging Geordie stand-up, actor and Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee mulls over supposedly sound advice as he faces the stresses and strains fatherhood in this latest hour of gentle humour. Chris Ramsey is instantly recognisable from his own television show, which returned for a second series on Comedy Central in February, and his role as Jack in BBC2's Hebburn.

£25.50 (£20.50; Children £18 under 16s)
- 1h 37min
- Directed by: Simon Hunter
- Cast: Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan
Edie (Hancock) was trapped in a loveless marriage for years, so when her husband dies, the 85-year-old takes advantage of her new freedom to go mountain-climbing in the Scottish Highlands. There’s charming chemistry between Hancock and co-star Guthrie, and the film is not unaware of how unprepared Edie is; unashamedly feel-good if somewhat formulaic.
Mon 16 Jul

New hit West-End musical will be broadcasted to cinemas nationwide live from the Apollo Theatre in London.
Sun 15 Jul
- 1h 45min
- Directed by: Ivan Reitman
- Written by: Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis
- Cast: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis
Three disgraced parapsychology researchers team up to fight spooks. An efficiently-managed plot, solid jokes, a cast let off the leash – Murray in particular – and thrilling and imaginative effects combine in a masterful balance of respect for the sci-fi genre and mockery of it; sly humour and wide-eyed wonder; star presence (Weaver) and indie self-awareness. A classic.

Fri 26 Oct
- 1h 50min
- Directed by: F Gary Gray
- Written by: Donna Powers, Wayne Powers, Troy Kennedy Martin
- Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, Edward Norton, Seth Green, Jason Statham, Mos Def, Donald Sutherland
Wisely, the producers of this remake have junked almost everything but the heist theme, a couple of character names and the Minis. Theron plays one of these gorgeous safecrackers who only exist in films, and Wahlberg's scowl is used to good effect, for once. Only Norton, twirling his Dick Dastardly moustache without an ounce of credibility, comes out as anything other than a winner in the last set of wacky races round the streets, drains and skies of LA. But the cars remain the stars in this Mini adventure.
Thu 2 Aug

- Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall
Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

- Directed by: Andrew Haigh
- Cast: Charlie Plummer, Steve Buscemi, Chloe Sevigny
Teenage Charley (Plummer) goes to work for grizzled horse trainer Del (Buscemi) and befriends the titular horse, before going on the road in search of his aunt. Haigh’s delicate directorial style makes a desperately sad coming-of-age tale very watchable, helped by Plummer’s appealingly understated performance.

- 1h 50min
- Directed by: Gary Ross
- Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter
Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

- Directed by: Dominic Cooke
- Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Emily Watson
Adaptation by Ian McEwan of his own novella, in which newlyweds Eddie (Howle) and Florence (Ronan) have an unsatisfying wedding night in a Dorset hotel in the early 60s. Overwrought and underwhelming, it’s filmed with a heavy hand by theatre director Cooke, making it for self-important and unengaging viewing.

- Directed by: Stuart Hazeldine
- Cast: Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Tim McGraw
In this faith-based project Mack Phillips (Worthington), a man grieving the death of his young daughter, receives a mysterious, personal invitation to meet with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit at a place called The Shack. Director Stuart Hazeldine balances serious plot details (child murder, suicide) with feelgood elements and the story is earnestly enough told to please its target audience. The A-list cast and simple strengths which made the book a bestseller may even appeal to non-churchgoers.
Thu 20 Sep
- Directed by: John Stevenson
- Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine
When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.
