Here’s a dangerous proposition for any kids out there who didn’t pass their GCSEs – a true story about a couple of stoners who make millions of dollars selling weapons and military hardware to the US and Afghanistan. This actually happened. Jonah Hill plays a big ball of crazy opposite Miles ‘Whiplash’ Teller in what plays like an Idiots’ Guide to Arms Dealing. Boom.
You may recognise Andy Samberg from E4 sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but he swaps his badge for a bad attitude in this mockumentary where he plays a boy band member who’s going solo. The music industry is the butt of most jokes, however (look out for Simon Cowell) and it’s released on the same weekend that The X Factor returns to the small screen. Slick.
The sort of movie you might enjoy if you just got back from the school run after a hard day at the office, accompanied by girlfriends and a litre of Lambrini. By the way, we advocate responsible drinking, but Mila Kunis definitely doesn’t. She’s a mum who’s falling apart yet she holds this comedy together despite being frequently upstaged by the outrageous Kathryn Hahn.
With audiences’ appetite for the undead showing no signs of abating, zombies come to a cinema near you, again. John Cusack and Samuel L Jackson run for cover (and presumably, towards another easy pay cheque) in a horror flick that blames our obsession with smartphones for turning our brains to mush. Adequate popcorn fodder, if your short attention span can take it…
If you thought the current US presidential election was scary, what about the premise of this horror sequel? Elizabeth Mitchell (of TV’s Lost) is the political idealist who hopes to scrap a policy that allows the general public to go criminally insane for one day a year. Donald Trump would love it.
