New Releases: 3rd February

WADJDA:

Wadjda+quad+poster

A big hit on the festival circuit and the first film made in Saudi Arabia Wadjda is about a 10-year-old girl who signs up for her school Koran recital competition in order to buy a bicycle. Arabic with English subs. Cert. PG

TRAILER

PRISONERS:

Prisoners+Poster

It seems like every ‘serious’ drama nowadays has to involve the disappearance of a child and Prisoners follows that trend with Hugh Jackman the distraught father of a missing daughter. Jackman sans Wolverine blades or song and dance numbers is a worrying presence but this film is shot by the brilliant Roger Deakins and who better to play a snivelling nutbag than Paul Dano?
Cert. 15

TRAILER

RUNNER RUNNER:

runner_runner_ver2_xlrg

I don’t remember this coming out at the cinema but here it is. Runner Runner is a thriller where Ben Affleck faces off against Justin Timberlake in a designer stubble competition (my money’s on Ben, his jaw’s double the size).
Cert. 15

TRAILER

ABOUT TIME:

about-time-poster-303x450

About time. About time a certain somebody stopped making films. Oh, he is stopping, is he? Oh what terribly, jolly excellent news! That’s pretty much all the enthusiasm I can muster for this film (although it has got Bill Nighy in it and we all love Bill Nighy).
Cert. 12

TRAILER
