THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. (M) 116 mins
A higher class of hero.
A classic 1960s TV spy series gets the blockbuster treatment, written and directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes). Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) are slick Cold War agents from opposing sides forced to team up.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, centers on CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB agent Illya Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organisation, which is bent on destabilising the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo's only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organisation..
ARE YOUR FRIENDS (R16) 91 mins

ANT-MAN (PG) 117 mins
Paul Rudd is Scott Lang, Marvel’s size-changing scientist in this superhero origin story directed by Peyton Reed (Yes Man). Co-stars Evangeline Lilly (The Hobbit), Michael Peña (Fury), Judy Greer (The Descendants) and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man.
Scott's a well-intentioned burglar fresh out of the slammer and eager to turn over a new leaf for the sake of his estranged daughter - until a classic "one last job" scenario leaes him seeing things in a new, miniaturised, light. He's been unwittingly recruited by Hank Pym, creator of a shrinking, super-powered suit, to take on the mantle of Ant-Man and prevent Pym's technology falling into the wrong hands.
Director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) was originally set to helm the film until creative differences saw him hand the reigns over to Reed. Wright and writing partner Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) retain story and screenplay credits, joined in the latter by Rudd and Anchorman director Adam McKay
OUTTA COMPTON (R16) 147 mins
N.W.A - Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Easy-E, DJ Yella and MC Ren - biopic, chronicling the group's rise in the mid-1980s in California. Striking terror into the hearts of conservatives and parents, N.W.A (an acronym for Niggaz Wit Attitudes) proved instantly controversial with their lyrics to songs like F--k da Police and their debut studio album Straight Outta Compton, one of the first to feature a Parental Advisory sticker. Co-produced by Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
