After being in the headlines recently for the shooting of a woman at a showing in America, Michael Bay's latest action-packed blockbuster brings you exactly what you'd expect from a Michael Bay action-packed blockbuster... bullets, and lots of them. We also see Jim from The Office (John Krasinski) being thrust into the front line of the war against terror, focusing around the murder of an American ambassador at a compound in Libya, and a group of six, highly-trained soldiers, who are charged with working out what happened amidst a tide of confusion and blood.

Pulling together footage of and interviews with the miners themselves, news stories from various outlets, and a re-enactment worthy of Crimewatch, prepare to have your heart strings tugged at!


Dirty Grandpa (Dan Mazer) Comedy
Zac Efron and Robert De Niro team up in this classic role-reversal comedy featuring a grandpa desperate to get laid, and his grandson preparing to marry his pushy fiancée. With some classic one-liners such as 'Party til you're pregnant' and 'Party some babies into us', you're in for a treat... if you're into that kind of thing.

Spotlight (Tom McCarthy) Biography | Drama | History

This is the story that shook the entire Catholic Church to it's core.

With an all-star cast featuring the likes of Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schrieber and Stanley Tucci among others, we are guaranteed to be in for a quality film!

Youth (Paolo Sorrentino) Drama
Michael Caine is a retired orchestra conductor on holiday in the Alps with his daughter (Rachel Weisz) and his film director friend (Harvey Keitel) when he receives an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II to perform at Prince Philip's birthday.
