Trailer Watch: Which movie should you go see this weekend?

What’s a must-watch, and what’s a miss? We tell you.

PLANNING ON HEADING to the cinema this weekend?

There are a few new movies out, but which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid? We take a look.

Which one would you go see first?

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

What we know

Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’s follow-up to The Lobster – again we get Colin Farrell, this time playing a surgeon who is befriended by a teenage boy who might just have something a bit sinister in store for him…

What the critics say

  • “Lanthimos has excelled at bizarre violence and general off-ness before (including his English-language breakout The Lobster), but here he’s flexing his talent for genuine scares, and he turns out to be quite good at it.” – Vulture 
  • “Lanthimos’s new film is somehow even more macabre and unsettling than his previous efforts, and yet I also found myself laughing throughout.” – The Atlantic

Murder on the Orient Express

What we know

Kenneth Branagh’s take on the Agatha Christie classic stars a host of big stars (Penélope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisey Ridley, Willem Dafoe, Johnny Depp to name but a few), but does it do the book justice?

What the critics say

No reviews yet.

Conor McGregor: Notorious

Source: Universal Pictures UK/YouTube

What we know

He’s Conor McGregor, and he’s notorious. But will this film give us much of an insight beyond the bravado?

What the critics say

  • “With so much to fit in, Notorious just feels like a montage. The distracting electronic score pulses throughout, thrusting the viewer from scene to scene with little regard for storytelling or character inspection.” – Den of Geek
  • “If Notorious is to be believed, he also spends downtime telling staff, members of his family, passing officials and visiting film-makers how fantastic he is. Everyone gets to hear how fantastic he is. The film posits no great distinction between the private man and the public persona.” – The Irish Times
