PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES ★★

Jane Austen’s classic characters return to the big screen once again, only this time Elizabeth, Darcy and their fellow gentry are fighting for their lives against the walking dead. Zombie splatter has never looked so classy.

ZOOLANDER 2 

Nice but dim male model Derek Zoolander comes out of retirement to investigate who’s killing the world’s most beautiful people. Sounds serious, but not when Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and co are poking fun at the fashionable and the fatuous. 


DEADPOOL 

Ryan Reynolds is a perfect fit as Marvel’s mercenary antihero who’s as quick with his wit as he is with weapons. Deadpool may be a mutant with accelerated healing but he’s no Wolverine – he’s a rude, lewd, wisecracking dude. 


CONCUSSION

Will Smith gets all serious in the true story of the crusading Nigerian doctor who sets out to prove the link between brain damage and playing American football.
