Gunslinger Roland (Elba) engages the help of New York teenager Jake (Taylor) in a battle to save the titular tower from the menacing Man in Black (McConaughey).

Johnny (O’Connor) is a young Yorkshireman living with his sour grandmother (Jones) and disgruntled father (Hart), whose life is turned upside-down by the arrival of Romanian migrant Ghoerghe (Secareanu).

  • UK release: 8 September 2017

A group of kids discovers that their town is haunted by an evil shape-shifting clown (Skarsgård). Well-crafted and properly creepy, with a sinister turn from Skarsgård as the dribbling Pennywise and Lillis superb as the gang’s only female member, it lays down solid groundwork for the planned second instalment.

  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Alaux
  • Cast: Paul Borne, Philippe Bozo, Pascal Casanova
  • UK release: 15 September 2017

Maurice (Bozo) is a penguin who’s been raised by Natacha, a tigress (Darah). He leads his own team of crime-fighting creatures against evil koala Igor (Darbois) and his baboons. Lush animation and a brisk, unpretentious story make for a cheap but cheerful rumble in the jungle for pre-teens.

The Limehouse Golem

  • 3 stars
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 1h 49min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Juan Carlos Medina
  • Cast: Olivia Cooke, Eddie Marsan, Bill Nighy

In Victorian London, Scotland Yard detective John Kildare becomes embroiled with music hall performer Lizzie Cree (Olivia Cooke). This adaptation by Jane Goldman of Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 novel never quite finds its rhythm, and although Cooke and Nighy are good, it promises more than it delivers.

  • 1h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Daniel Craig
  • UK release: 25 August 2017

Jimmy (Tatum), his brother Clyde (Driver) and sister Mellie (Keough) enlist the help of redneck jailbird and explosives expert Joe Bang (Craig) to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Soderbergh’s latest comedy heist movie is perhaps his best, with a great cast, a satisfying plot and witty dialogue.

Move Over Mrs Markham

  • UK release: 8 September 2017

Cory Lambert (Renner) is a wildlife officer used to tracking predators, who teams up with rookie FBI agent Jane Banner (Olsen) to solve a murder in Wind River Indian Reservation. For all the sensitive handling of Native American issues, the dialogue is hokey, the Olsen character is underwritten and there’s too much focus…
