- UK release: 30 December 2016
Callum Lynch (Fassbender) is a convicted murderer who wakes up in a research facility to find that his ancestor was a 15th century Spanish assassin and he's to travel in time and wage war against the Knights Templar. The set pieces are spectacular but the flip-flopping between past and present messes up the rhythm, and…

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing…

- Directed by: Alice Lowe
- Cast: Alice Lowe, Kayvan Novak, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie
Ruth (Lowe) is an expectant mother who starts to hear her unborn baby urging her to kill people. Lowe's blackly comic, squirmingly uncomfortable directorial debut is remarkably well-realised, with an impressive cast and her own eerily passive, brilliantly-timed performance at the core. Enjoyably provocative.
Seann Walsh: One for the Road
Sharp and energetic observational humour from this fast-riser.

- Cast: Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano
- UK release: 1 January 2016
Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and…
