Atomic Blonde

Charlize Theron gets an attack of Aeon Reflux as MI6 super-spy Lorraine Broughton in this bone-jarring action caper set in 1989 Berlin. When a file exposing every secret agent in the West falls into Russian hands, lethal Lorraine is paired with maverick agent James Percival (James McAvoy) to get it back. But on top of the usual problems with murderous goons, sneaky bosses and double crosses, there are plenty more spanners in the works... not to mention guns, knives, hoses, corkscrews, ice picks, Stilettos and office furniture. Bloody violence? Strong language? Nudity? You betcha. Belting soundtrack, too. Check out our featured review here

Annabelle: Creation

The origins of the possessed doll from The Conjuring emerge in this spine-chilling prequel from the director of horror hit Lights Out. Years after their little girl is killed in a tragic accident, dollmaker Samuel (Anthony LaPaglia) and his bed-ridden wife (Miranda Otto) open their home to girls from a closing Catholic orphanage. But while the older girls settle in, disabled Janice (Talitha Bateman) and her best friend Linda (Lulu Wilson) get into trouble when they enter the dead girl's bedroom... more trouble than they ever imagined. The truth crawls out of the woodwork in a spookily effective series of bone-snapping twists and diabolical turns.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

After solving the food shortage in Liberty Park (that he accidentally caused), Surly the squirrel (voiced by Will Arnett) must save the day once again when the city's sneaky Mayor threatens to turn the place into an amusement park. While he can rely on his ratty sidekick Buddy (Tom Kenny), feisty redhead Andie (Katherine Heigl) and Precious the pug (Maya Rudolph), Surly brings in muscle from outside in the form of gang boss Mr Feng (Jackie Chan) and his mob... who are a lot more dangerous than they look. The fur (and gags) continue to fly in this madcap sequel to 2014's allergy-defying hit.

The Dark Tower

Sinister sorcerer Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey) is determined to destroy the "Dark Tower", a soaring pinnacle that holds the universe together. To succeed, he needs to harness the mind of psychically gifted New York teenager (Tom Taylor)...but he's joined forces with the mysterious gunslinger (Idris Elba) to thwart Walter's catastrophic plans. Writer Stephen King's sprawling sci-fi series is reduced to a tight 90-odd minutes of cataclysmic, steam-punk mayhem.

Dunkirk

The miraculous evacuation of almost 340,000 Allied soldiers while under constant fire from the advancing German Army has provided director Christopher Nolan with the subject for his most superlative film yet. Splitting the narrative into three strands - on the beach (Fionn Whitehead's teen squaddie), at sea (Mark Rylance's taciturn small boat captain) and in the air (Tom Hardy's clipped RAF Spitfire pilot) - he marshals the storylines into a visceral, compelling whole while providing a quality hitherto mostly absent from his work - genuine passion. It's a colossal, nerve-shredding effort and one where Nolan never puts a foot wrong.

American MadeAmerican-Made-LB-1.jpg

After Top Gun and Oblivion, the Cruise-meister takes to to the skies again as Barry Seal, a maverick flyboy who lands a gig for the CIA and as a drug runner in South America during the 1980s. While keeping as much of his dodgy dope dealings as he can from his wife Lucy (Sarah Wright), Baz works a nice scam with his government handler Monty Schafer (Domhnall Gleeson) making a mountain of cash. Of course, it ain't gonna last. After The Mummy fell out of the sky in ball of box office flames, Tom's obviously hoping this loose biopic with have his career back in the clouds.

Detroit

The murder of three black men by trigger-happy white policemen during the 1967 Detroit riots is the subject of this hard-hitting drama from director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker). Two nights after the unrest began, several officers - alerted to shots fired from the Algiers Motel - flouted procedure and violently interrogated guests, conducting a "death game" to intimidate confessions, leaving three innocents slain. A powerful thriller is distinguished by a chilling break-out performance from Brit Will Poulter as a racist cop.

Logan Lucky

It's Ocean's Eleven hillbilly style when a pair of redneck war veteran brothers (Adam Driver and Channing Tatum) spring Daniel Craig's Joe Bang - a career crimmo sporting a daring blonde crop - to help them pull of a heist during the Coca Cola 600 Race in North Carolina. Witty and ingenious, it's a welcome return for director Steven Soderbergh and a chance for Craig to flex his comedy muscles after the strait (dinner) jacket of 007.

Rough Night

Five best friends from college - including Scarlett Johansson's Jess and Zoe Kravitz's Blair - reunite ten years later for a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami. However, their hard partying takes a dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper by lustily bashing his head against a marble pillar. While Johansson shines in a rare comedy role it's Kate McKinnon who steals the show as an Australian wild card who's full-blown presence never fails to light up a scene.
