What we know

Two titans of the superhero world – Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman – meet to battle each other. It

What the critics say

  • “The two superheroes are also brought close together – though don’t actually meet – in a cleverly conceived establishing sequence: picking up from the final showdown between Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod at the climax of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman shows Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) racing around the shattered city streets attempting to evacuate his office workers as the apocalyptic battle rages in the sky.” - The Guardian
  • “But amidst all the grueling work of saving the world and shouldering a franchise toward the heights, it would be nice to see these heroes, and this series, take a few more breathers to enjoy the view.” - Variety

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

What we know

You’ve probably seen the Oscar-nominated precursor to this film – about a Greek-American woman and her large family as she prepares to get married. Now we return to the family as they try deal with their young daughter’s transition to college.

What the critics say

  • “The screenplay feels as if it was written the year after the first film’s success, just with a few jokes about Facetime inserted for 2016 topicality. The rest of the jokes either don’t land or feel about as fresh as a two-day old spanakopita.” - Chicago Tribune
  • “Andrea Martin remains the most significant scene stealer as feisty Aunt Voula, but even with a bit more screen time it’s emblematic of the pic as a whole that she doesn’t get anything as quotable as “What do you mean he don’t eat no meat? That’s OK. I make lamb.” - Variety

What we know

Matthias Schoenarts stars as an ex-soldier who returns from Afghanistan to protect the wife of a wealthy Lebanese businessman. But he starts to feel as though there are threats just outside the door.

What the critics say

  • “Fortunately, Winocour’s way with the camera is considerably more palatable than her screenwriting, so the visuals are pleasurably watchable even if what the characters are doing is silly.” - Hollywood Reporter
  • “While it’s nice to see Schoenaerts back in a role that suits him, it’s far too easy to compare it to his other soulful bruisers, where he’s had much more to play with. Kruger tries admirably with an underwritten role but their chemistry is slight.” - The Guardian
