What we know

Gosling. Crowe. 1977. From Lethal Weapon writer and director Shane Black, comes a buddy cop movie which could be a classic in its genre.

What the critics say

  • “Quick on its wits and fast with its fists, this is Black firmly back doing what he does best. And nobody out there does it better.” James White, Empire
  • “As buddy movies go, it has enough irreverence and originality never just to seem like a cynical rehash of a kind of film that has been made countless times before.” Geoffery Macnab, The Independent

What we know

It’s a movie based on a video game, so the signs aren’t great. Based on the massive online game, Warcraft throws orcs and humans together to save their lands. Directed by Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie.

What the critics say

  • “There’s a genuine sense of striving to get inside what made the Warcraft games beloved by 100 million participants, whether playing as human or orc, and tapping into what makes fantasy feel so personal, so real. Game on.” Leigh Singer, IGN
  • “Warcraft ends with a set-up for a sequel, but also the feeling that if this is what combat looks like, it’s time to give peace a chance.” Geoff Berkshire, Variety

Me Before You

What we know

Emilia Clarke takes a job as a caregiver for a paralysed man played by Sam Claflin. It doesn’t take a genius to work out what happens next. Squarely in the “life-affirming comedy-drama” category.

What the critics say

  • “If you like, it’s Fifty Shades of Grey, with the Red Room of Pain replaced by Sam Claflin being sarcastic in a wheelchair. And no sex.” Tim Robey, The Telegraph
  • “Me Before You is like eating a full cheesecake and then realising that it was a week out of date. Everything beforehand has been soured. But, in the moment, it delivered what you wanted, and felt so right. It’s just a shame that the aftertaste is so bitter. ” Gregory Wakeman, CinemaBlend
