Dad’s Army (Oliver Parker) Comedy
Who would have expected Dad’s Army to make a comeback? Oliver Parker envisioned the hit 70’s tv show on the big screen in the modern era and, with the help of Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Toby Jones, Michael Gambon and The Inbetweeners’ Blake Harrison, he has managed to bring back the Walmington-on-sea Home Guard platoon.

Trumbo (Jay Roach) Biography | Drama
Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston), one of Hollywood’s greatest writers, was jailed and blacklisted due to his belief in Communism. This is his story. Starring Helen Mirren, Louis C.K. and Elle Fanning alongside Cranston, expect to be wowed by an all-star cast revealing the inside story of the writer behind such incredible projects as Spartacus and Papillon.

Lee Scratch Perry’s Vision of Paradise (Volker Schaner) Documentary | Biography
(Limited release) Director Volker Schaner followed legendary musician Lee Scratch Perry around for 15 years with a camera and a microphone, and this incredible documentary is the result. Described not as a biography, but a ‘fairytale documentary’, expect to be taught how to change the world with positive vibrations!

Goosebumps (Rob Letterman) Adventure | Fantasy | Comedy | Horror
90’s kids will remember Goosebumps as a key part of their Saturday evening television viewing; kids nowadays will remember Goosebumps as ‘that movie with Jack Black’. Expect some good old-fashioned family fun from the man who brought you classic kids films such as Monsters vs Aliens and Shark Tale.

Point Break (Ericson Core) Action | Crime | Sports
No, not the Patrick Swayze one. This film is a story about a young FBI agent infiltrating a team of extreme sports athletes at the top of their game in order to find out their involvement in a series of corporate heists. Now if that short synopsis doesn’t make you burst with adrenaline, I don’t know what will! Throw in the fact that Ray Winstone is in it, and you’ve got yourself a dream of an action film!
