A major emotion picture.
From Disney/Pixar and the director of Up, a film set inside a little girl's head where five emotions - Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Sadness - try to guide her through life.
Eleven-year-old Riley is your typical boisterous kid, but the anthropomorphic emotions that keep things ticking in the control room of her mind have their work cut out for them when her family uproots itself and moves cross-country to San Francisco. Things take an even more complex turn when Joy (Amy Poehler) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) find themselves stranded far across the vast terrain of Riley's mind and have to return before her imbalanced emotions make an irreversible impact.

Right time, right place, wrong date.
Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) and Lake Bell (In a World…) star in this London-set rom-com from the director of The Inbetweeners Movie, following a woman who is mistaken for a blind date which accidentally leads to her finding the perfect boyfriend.
"Perpetually single Nancy (Bell) has given up on ever finding Mr. Right. When a mix-up involving a fad self-help book leads to Jack (Pegg) - a charming stranger - falsely identifying her as his blind date, Nancy lets her guard down to see where this unexpected opportunity takes her. At first Jack seems like he might be The One, but soon both parties realise there might be more to the other than they first let on." (Tribeca Film Festival)

Animated laugher, following the history of the little minions from Despicable Me.

BOVARY (M) 118 mins
The fantastic Mia Wasikowska is Emma Bovary, whose refusal to accept societal conventions leads to rebellion and disgrace, in this adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's classic novel set in 19th-century rural France. Co-stars Paul Giamatti and Rhys Ifans.
"Flaubert’s finest gets a fresh dust-off as Wasikowska takes on the mantle of the woman who wanted too much. Marriage is at first a dream for young Emma, keen to embrace this new stage in her life and be the perfect partner to her country doctor husband. But she is too spirited a woman to be contained and it’s not long before a combination of loneliness, boredom and naïveté impel her beyond the boundaries of society." (London Film Festival)
WORLD (M) 124 mins
Twenty-two years after the disastrous events of Jurassic Park, the vision of founder John Hammond is now reality - a fully-functional theme park open to the public, and populated by dinosaurs.
While staff member Owen (Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy) conducts research into the fearsome velociraptor, scientists at the park are cooking up a new, genetically-modified dinosaur in the lab... Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village), Vincent D'Onofrio and Jake Johnson co-star, while Colin Trevorrow directs what is just his second feature film.
(PG) 130 mins
Veteran Pixar director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) follows his live-action debut Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol with this sci-fi adventure based on the Disney theme park attraction.

With baddies in pursuit, she teams up with a former boy-genius inventor (George Clooney) to travel to Tomorrowland, make our world a better place, and save us from certain destruction.
