MIKE XXL (R16) 116 mins
Channing Tatum revisits his exploits as a male stripper in this steamy sequel (that he also co-wrote). Three years after retiring, "Magic Mike" Lane reunites most of his old gang - with the exception of Dallas (Matthew McConaughey) - for one final explosive performance. Andie MacDowell, Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith and Elizabeth Banks co-star alongside the sea of abs and testosterone. Stepping into the director’s chair is Gregory Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh’s (director of the original) long-time assistant director and co-producer.
HOLMES (PG) 104 mins
The man behind the myth.
Sir Ian McKellen is an aged and retired Sherlock Holmes in this crime mystery from director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls). The great detective’s memory is fading, but a 50-year-old case still troubles him. Residing in a Sussex village post-WWII, Mr. Holmes investigates the mystery with the fragments of memory he has left.
IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION (TBC) 131 mins
The Tom Cruise action-spy franchise continues, this time with Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) in the director's chair. This time, Ethan and the crew must stop The Syndicate – an international rogue organisation of equal skill and measure dedicated to wiping out the IMF. Co-stars M:I regulars Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames as well as new stars Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules) as an elusive ally and Sean Harris (Prometheus) as the villain.
(PG) 91 mins
Animated laugher, following the history of the little minions from Despicable Me. At the dawn of time, starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters - from T. Rex to Napoleon - the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
Voices of: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Steve Carell, Hiroyuki Sanada, Pierre Coffin
