Salt and Fire
Monday 14 August 2017
Michael Shannon plays the enigmatic villain of this typically stylish eco-thriller from maverick director Werner Herzog. Shannon is Riley, a visionary multinational company exec who plans the abduction of a United Nations science delegation - including outspoken ecologist Laura (Veronica Ferres) - in Bolivia. But the kidnapper must rethink his motives when a nearby volcano threatens to blow its top in a cataclysmic eruption. Gael Garcia Bernal adds to the intriguing tableau of minerals and mind games.
Army of One
Tuesday 15 August 2017
Crazy action comedy starring Nicolas Cage as US construction worker Gary Faulkner (Nicolas Cage), a flag-waving patriot who goes on a mission to kill Osama Bin Laden following a visit from God (embodied by Russell Brand!). Over several trips to deepest, darkest Pakistan, Faulkner realises that the task is trickier than it sounds - with or without higher-powered assistance. Irreverent thrills and spills from the director of Borat, based - believe it or not - on a true story.
Wednesday 16 August 2017
Three stories relate a trio of young people seeking new lives far from home. In rural Mexico, a young man, David (Bernardo Garnica Cruz) leaves his village following his father's death and moves to Mexico City.

In the third strand, rebellious Filipina teen Maria (Jemie Almazán) moves in with her grandmother and trouble lies ahead.

London layabout Matt (Josh Bowman) finds himself playing a deadly game when masked thugs break into his flat, strap him into a mysterious vest and kidnap his girlfriend Anna (Leila Mimmack). He's told via his phone that the vest contains a package he must deliver... or it's game over for Anna. Race-against-time thriller from the director of sci-fi crime series iBoy.
Keeping Up With The Jones’s
Friday 18 August 2017
A comfortably conformist suburban couple in Atlanta - interior designer Karen (Isla Fisher) and HR manager Jeff (Zach Galifianakis) - become embroiled in an international espionage plot when they discover that their seemingly perfect new neighbours (John Hamm and Gal 'Wonder Woman' Gadot) are government spies. It's a world of car chases, exploding houses and dining on poisonous snakes as the desperate duo find themselves way of their depth and in deep trouble. Manic comedy from the director of Superbad.
Saturday 19 August 2017
Kubo and the Two Strings
Thriving on tales of heroes but respectful of his mother's wish to keep him close, young storyteller Kubo (Game of Thrones' Art Parkinson) suddenly finds himself on a magical quest to save them both from the vengeful Moon King (Ralph Fiennes). Accompanied by a no-nonsense monkey (Charlize Theron) and a fearless samurai beetle (Matthew McConaughey), Kubo discovers secrets about his family that will steer him towards his own heroic destiny. The stop-motion wizards behind Coraline and The Boxtrolls score another fantastical hit with this triumphant blend of epic storytelling and spellbinding adventure.

Kill Me Three Times
Simon Pegg shows his dark side as a dying English assassin who tells the story of his imminent demise. Set in Australia, it's a gory yarn that takes in a stash of cash and a group of greedy wrong 'uns - a dumb mechanic (Luke Hemsworth), his married sex buddy (Alice Braga), her jealous husband (Callan Mulvey), their dentist (Sullivan Stapleton) and his scheming wife (Teresa Palmer) - who are determined to get their hands on it. Blackly comic crime caper.
