Movies Screening from Wed 26th Oct
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children – 3/11/16
Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Chris O’Dowd, Terence Stamp
Based on the first book in Ransom Riggs’ spine-tingling, time-travelling, gothic trilogy about 16-year-old Jacob (Asa Butterfield), who explores the mysterious orphanage where his grandfather was sent before World War II and encounters the monsters and “peculiars” linked to it. The movie is directed by Tim Burton.
Deepwater Horizon – 03/11/16
Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien (II), Kate Hudson
An explosion ripped through the Transocean deepwater drilling rig on April 20, 2010 where 11 men lost their lives in an accident that was the worst ecological disaster in American history. After teaming up in ‘Lone Survivor’, actor Mark Whalberg and director Peter Berg once again join forces. The film stops short of touching on the catastrophic aftermath of the oil spill.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back – 10/11/16
Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Patrick Heusinger, Aldis Hodge, Danika Yarosh and Holt McCallany.
Directed by Edward Zwick, who previously worked with Cruise on the 2003 historic epic “The Last Samurai,” this Jack Reacher movie is the second instalment depicting the two-fisted military loner and reflecting the gritty toughness of Ian Child’s books. Another solid and satisfying action-thriller.
Keeping Up With The Joneses – 10/11/16
Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot
Married couple Jeff and Karen Gaffney have the house all to themselves for the first time in years. They become suspicious of their new neighbours, the Jones’, and decide to sneak into their house where they discover that Tim and Natalie Jones are government spies investigating the aerospace company that Jeff works for.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them – 17/11/16
Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Ezra Miller
Based on J.K. Rowling’s original story about Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), the author of a Hogwarts textbook that describes various beasts and dragons. The movie follows Newt’s adventures in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards 70 years before Harry Potter first arrived at Hogwarts.
Hacksaw Ridge – 17/11/16
Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths
Hacksaw Ridge is a compellingly effective WWII drama about a pacifist, Desmond Doss, who serves his country on the battlefield without carrying a gun or firing a shot. This is Mel Gibson’s first directorship in 10 years and stands a good chance of being a player in the coming awards season.
