  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Written by: Roald Dahl (novel), Melissa Mathison (screenplay)
  • Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall
  • UK release: 22 July 2016

Eight year old Sophie (Barnhill) looks out her window one evening to discover something terrifying – the Big Friendly Giant (Rylance), who unlike his giant brothers doesn't actually want to eat her.

  • Directed by: Matt Ross
  • Written by: Matt Ross
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay, Samantha Isler

Ben (Mortensen) has raised a family of six off the grid in the Pacific Northwest, teaching them survival skills and science but leaving them unprepared for the rest of the world.

  • Directed by: Tate Taylor
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux

Rachel (Blunt) spies on people from her commute to work, including ice queen Megan (Bennett) and her neighbour Anna (Ferguson). Then Megan disappears. Glossy but strangely unsuspenseful thriller which sticks too close to the book to be unpredictable, but there are refreshingly many decent roles for women, and Blunt is raw…
