- Cast: Alicia Silverstone, Tom Everett Scott, Alexa Blair Robertson, Jason Drucker, Charlie Wright
Greg (Drucker) and Rodrick (Wright) go on a two-day road trip with their family in order to attend a birthday party. The fourth film in the sequence completely recasts the main characters (the previous ones having become too old) and despite likeable performances it’s only moderately amusing.

- Cast: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin
A slick, amiable if somewhat safe cover version of an unjustly neglected 1979 comedy, this time starring Oscar-winners Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin as poverty-stricken old-timers who decide to take their revenge on a banking system.

- Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell
The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.

- Cast: Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Elizabeth Sloane (Chastain) is a ruthless Washington lobbyist who is persuaded to work for a lobbying company aiming to make stronger gun control laws. Breakneck, nicely vicious dialogue and a whirldwind performance from Chastain are the best reasons to watch an otherwise above-average political thriller.

- Directed by: Aki Kaurismäki
- Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kousmanen, Ville Virtanen, Kati Outinen
Syrian asylum-seeker Khaled (Haji) meets travelling salesman-turned-restaurateur Wikström (Kuosmanen), and after an awkward start, a beautiful friendship is born. Kaurismaki is back and at the top of his game, with a melancholy, gorgeous-looking, sometimes screamingly funny exploration of the kindness of strangers. How we’ve missed him.

- Cast: Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom
Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it manages to stay afloat.

- Cast: Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, Shohreh Aghdashloo
Mikael (Isaac) is a poor Armenian medical student in Constantinople in 1914, who falls in love with the vivacious Ana (Le Bon), except that she’s already carrying on with the dashing American journalist Chris (Bale). Epic, handsomely cast but overcooked historical romance set against the backdrop of the Turkish genocide of Armenians.

- Directed by: Niki Caro
- Cast: Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenbergh, Michael McElhatton, Daniel Brühl
The true story of Antonina Jabinski (Chastain) and her husband Jan (Heldenbergh), who ran the Warsaw Zoo in the 1930s and who used it to shelter Jews from the Nazis during WW2. Director Caro steers the story robustly if predictably, and it’s a solid and worthy story if nothing spectacular.
