ATOMIC BLONDE ★★★

A bleached blonde Charlize Theron heads to Berlin to investigate the death of a fellow MI6 agent while kicking endless ass in this stylish and flashy spy thriller. That director David Leith worked for two decades as a stuntman tells you plenty of what you need to know about this Cold War comic book adaptation.

THE EMOJI MOVIE: EXPRESS YOURSELF ★★

A movie about the pictograms that live inside a boy’s smartphone in a city called Textopolis. Clearly inspired by The Lego Movie and Inside Out this animated adventure can’t quite compete with either, and has been given a thumbs down so far at the box office. Despite all that, this might be your only chance to hear Patrick Stewart as the voice of poop.

ENGLAND IS MINE ★★

It’s an odd time to release a biopic about Morrissey given that the former Smiths frontman has recently been busy alienating fans with increasingly suspect public statements. In any case, the film narrows its focus to the early 80s before the band ever formed. Jack Lowden plays the young Morrissey as he strives to overcome the alienation and shyness that he would later write about with such aplomb in his songs.
