Set in a world in which the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs had actually missed Earth and let them roam in peace, it's the tale of young Arlo (Ochoa), an apatosaurus who gets separated from his family and who teams up with mutt-like human boy Spot (Bright.)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2
- 136 min
- Directed by: Francis Lawrence
- Written by: Peter Craig, Danny Strong
- Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth
- UK release: 19 November 2015
In the final part of the saga, as the plot and pace pick up, Katniss (Lawrence) plots to kill Snow (Sutherland) and heads to the capital with a team of rebels. Bar a couple of stand-out scenes, it plods a bit and Lawrence feels like she's outgrown the role. Functional rather than fantastic.

The Lady in the Van
- 104 min
- Directed by: Nicholas Hytner
- Written by: Alan Bennett
- Cast: Maggie Smith, Alex Jennings, Dominic Cooper, James Corden
- UK release: 13 November 2015
Writer Alan Bennett (Jennings, uncanny) allows cantankerous drifter Miss Shepherd (Smith) to make his Camden Town driveway her home for 15 years. Bennett's screenplay of this 'autobiopic' is a delight, showing how human kindness can be hilariously begrudging, but some of its conceits can be distracting.

- UK release: 30 October 2015
In 1912, laundry worker Maud (Mulligan) has her eyes opened to gender inequality by suffragette activists Violet (Duff), Edith (Bonham-Carter) and Alice (Garai). Gavron's decision to shoot it not as a stoic period piece but as a gritty actioner pays off, with a superb performance from Mulligan at the centre of a great cast.
