Justice League

(In Cinemas November 17th)


After the success of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Wonder Woman, this is our first chance to see DC’s full stable of superheroes teaming up.

The movie unites Ben Affleck's Batman, Henry Cavill's Superman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher's Cyborg, Ezra Miller's The Flash and Jason Momoa's Aquaman, with Ciaran Hinds, J.K. Simmons and Willem Dafoe also in the cast.

This epic adventure pits the team against Steppenwolf, an immortal with superhuman strength, speed and stamina who commands an army of parademons. It’s going to be brutal...


Murder On The Orient Express

(In Cinemas November 3rd)


Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery gets a modern re-telling with an all-star cast.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the new adaptation stars Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michael Peña, Michelle Pfeiffer and Daisy Ridley, with Branagh playing Agatha Christie's iconic detective Hercule Poirot.

The movie follows 13 stranded strangers all together on a train, a train where a bloody murder has taken place and Poirot's race to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.

No expense has been spared for this lavish period drama…


Paddington 2

(In Cinemas November 10th)


After melting all our hearts in 2015, the beloved bear gets a second run on the big screen.

Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Imelda Staunton, Madeleine Harris and Samuel Joslin all reprise their roles in the sequel with Ben Whishaw back to voice Paddington.

Among the new cast members for the sequel are Dame Eileen Atkins, Richard Ayoade, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Tom Conti, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Jessica Hynes, Claire Keelan, Joanna Lumley, Ben Miller, Aaron Neil, Meera Syal and Noah Taylor, while Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson are also in key roles.

Grant will play Windsor Gardens’ local celebrity, Phoenix Buchanan, a vain, charming acting legend whose star has fallen somewhat in recent years, while Brendan Gleeson plays Knuckles McGinty, a notorious safe-cracker and legendary strongman who becomes an unexpected new ally for Paddington.

In the sequel, we find Paddington searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, and, after he spots a unique pop-up book in Mr Gruber’s antique shop, he embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief…
