Tom Holland suits up in the iconic arachnid spandex for the second time, as Spidey adjusts to “ordinary” life after taking sides in the Avenger v Avenger slugfest from last year’s Captain America: Civil War. High-school hijinks, an avian adversary and Robert Downey as Peter Parker’s mickey-taking mentor, Tony Stark, combine with the usual breathless Marvel action to put our friendly neighbourhood web spinner firmly to the fore of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The third instalment of the rebooted simian saga sees Andy Serkis’s chief chimp Caesar battling to save his fellow primates from the militaristic machinations of sadistic Colonel Woody Harrelson, who fears humanity is on its last legs. Like a war film… only with apes, lots of them…
A lethal lurgy forces a family to flee to a forest retreat where they live in boarded-up, self-sufficient isolation until an interloper appears one night… Horror for those who prefer eerie and unnerving chills to gory and ghoulish splatter.
