    Pride

    Unlikely allies join forces against a common enemy in this feelgood British comedy-drama based on an amazing true story. During the London Gay Pride March of 1984, activist Mark (Ben Schnetzer) makes a momentous decision. As a gesture of solidarity, he decides to form an organisation called Lesbians and Gay Men Support the Miners. They raise heaps of cash, but can't find any striking mineworkers who are prepared to accept it. Eventually, they make contact with a small Welsh pit village, whose representative, Dai (Paddy Considine), invites the activists to pay a visit. The stage is set for old prejudices to be challenged and new friendships formed. This rousing, fact-based crowd-pleaser in the tradition of 'The Full Monty' boasts a terrific British cast. Its ranks include Imelda Staunton as the formidable community organiser Hefina, Bill Nighy as shy and cultured miner Cliff, and Dominic West as flamboyantly gay actor Jonathan.

Eleven-year-old Eggs (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has been raised in the underground lair of the Boxtrolls.

Their nemesis is the evil Archibald Snatcher (Ben Kingsley) - a pest exterminator with ideas above his station, who leads a sinister gang of Red Hats. Matters come to a head when Winnie (Elle Fanning), the neglected daughter of Cheesebridge's wealthy mayor, teams up with Eggs to save the Boxtrolls. Adapted from Alan Snow's novel 'Here Be Monsters!', this is a fabulous exquisitely animated new adventure from the creators of 'Coraline' and 'ParaNorman'.

    Lucy

    Scarlett Johansson stars in a breathtaking action-thriller about a woman who accidentally develops superhuman powers. In Taiwan, terrified young American Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is abducted by a gang of brutal drug traffickers. Telling her that she is to become their mule, they sew packets of narcotics into her stomach. But when these leak into her bloodstream, Lucy undergoes an astonishing transformation. As her brain becomes supercharged, she quickly acquires incredible strength, vast intellectual capacity and amazing telekinetic powers. These allow her to turn the tables on her captors. The rapidly evolving Lucy then reaches out to academic Professor Norman (Morgan Freeman), who theorises that we use only 10% of our mental capacity. But what will happen to her when she reaches 100%? Luc Besson, writer/director of 'Nikita' and 'The Fifth Element', has created some of the screen's most extraordinary female action heroes. With 'Lucy', he takes the genre to a new level.

    A Most Wanted Man

    Philip Seymour Hoffman stars in a heart-stopping thriller adapted from spy novelist John le Carre's bestseller. A mysterious man arrives in modern-day Hamburg seeking help from the city's Islamic community. Tortured almost to the point of death, Issa (Grigoriy Dobrygin) claims to be half-Chechen and half-Russian. He's also looking to recover his late father's dubiously acquired fortune. It's not long before Issa has attracted the keen attention of the British, German and American security services, who are all keen to uncover his real identity. Is he a victim or a covert terrorist? Renowned espionage author John le Carre's 2008 bestseller was set against the topical backdrop of the War on Terror. Adapted by 'Edge of Darkness' co-writer Andrew Bovell, Anton Corbijn's follow-up to 'The American' is a tense and complex tale of modern-day intrigue. Philip Seymour Hoffman is cast as a rogue German spy while Rachel McAdams plays Issa's idealistic lawyer.

    A chef goes back to his roots and reconnects with his family in this delicious foodie comedy from 'Iron Man' director Jon Favreau.

    Chef Carl Casper is bullied by his restaurant's owner (Dustin Hoffman) into churning out safe food. A stinging review by a respected critic (Oliver Platt) prompts this divorced dad and frustrated kitchen genius to go ballistic and get himself fired. Carl's wealthy ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara) steps in to help with a plane ticket to Miami, while her first husband (Robert Downey Jr) donates a beat-up old taco truck. So he refurbishes the vehicle and hits the road, bonding with his 11-year-old son and rediscovering his zest for exquisite culinary creations. Writer/director/star Jon Favreau returns to his 'Swingers'-era indie origins with this delightful road trip comedy. It also reunites him with 'Iron Man' star Robert Downey Jr and boasts a fabulous supporting cast that includes Scarlett Johansson as Carl's former flame.

    Before I Go To Sleep

    Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth star in an intriguing amnesia thriller with an extraordinary twist! Each morning, Christine Lucas (Nicole Kidman) awakes with no memory. She thinks she's 27, but she's actually 40. Her patient husband, Ben (Colin Firth), explains that this is the result of a traumatic accident. She stores up information each day, but by the following morning it has been erased. Doctor Nash (Mark Strong) reveals that he has been working with Christine on her condition and has encouraged her to keep a video diary. But as secrets emerge and her doubts and suspicions grow, she begins to believe that she can trust nobody! Produced by Ridley Scott and adapted by '28 Weeks Later' writer Rowan Joffe from S.J. Watson's international bestseller, this an absorbing, tautly-scripted twisty-turny mystery. Leading a classy cast, Kidman and Firth cement the working partnership they established so effectively on 'The Railway Man'.

    Madama Butterfly - On Sydney Harbour

    A spectacular modern retelling of Puccini's heart-rending opera on a magnificent water stage suspended over Sydney Harbour. Puccini's hugely popular and deeply moving tale of love, honour and betrayal tells of Japanese geisha Cio-Cio San's doomed romance with American naval officer Pinkerton. Among the superb score's many highlights are the famous Humming chorus, Cio-Cio San's first entrance, her seduction by Pinkerton, and, of course, her wonderful aria 'Un bel di vedremo'. This stunning modern staging is Handa Opera's third production on Sydney Harbour, following the success of 'Carmen' and 'La traviata'. Once again, the breathtaking water stage is suspended above the Harbour against the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and the world-famous Opera House. This time, a giant sun and moon, each 12 metres wide, rise from the water to hang above the stage. Japanese soprano Hiromi Omura portrays tragic Cio-Cio San, with Georgy Vasiliev performing the role of Pinkerton.

    Sex Tape

    Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel try to prevent an embarrassing video going viral in this raunchy comedy! After ten years of marriage and two kids, Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) are in a relationship rut. To spice things up a little, the couple hit on a plan. They decide to have a kinky three-hour nookie session and record the whole thing on video. Job done, Jay erases the recording. At least, that what he thinks he's done. In fact, he's uploaded it to the Cloud, where it can be viewed by all their friends and family! The horrible truth dawns when they start receiving compliments about their performance. With the video just one click away from hitting the internet, the couple embark on a madcap race against time to prevent their intimate secrets becoming public knowledge. The stars and director of 'Bad Teacher' reunite for this deliciously risque comedy.

    Let's Be Cops

    An outrageous comedy about two loser buddies who have fun posing as cops - until they encounter real mobsters! Best mates Ryan (Jake Johnson) and Justin (Damon Wayans Jr.) have managed to make it to the grand old age of 30 without achieving any of their ambitions. But all that's about to change with their fateful decision to attend a fancy dress party dressed as cops. They soon find that people mistake them for the real thing! It's not long before our lovable anti-heroes are using this to their advantage, gate-crashing wild parties and getting special attention from the ladies. They even buy a police car on eBay. Unfortunately, these fake cops soon find themselves on the wrong side of a bunch of very authentic ruthless mobsters. Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr., stars of the hit US sitcom 'New Girl', reunite on the big screen for this hilariously raunchy buddy comedy with a difference!

    The Inbetweeners 2

    Will, Jay, Neil and Simon head Down Under in this raunchy sequel to the record-breaking comedy. Last time we met the Rudge Park posse, they were causing chaos in Malia, Crete. Nearly a year on, Will (Simon Bird), Jay (James Buckley), Neil (Blake Harrison) and Simon (Joe Thomas) have gone their separate ways. Jay is staying with his uncle in Australia. Neil has actually managed to get a job. And Simon and Will are at different universities, but life isn't panning out as they'd hoped. So when Jay emails to say he's now become the biggest DJ in Australia and his life is one long party, the threesome need no encouragement to leap on a plane for a wild Easter break. Creators Damon Beesley and Iain Morris take over as co-directors of this eagerly anticipated sequel to the most successful British comedy of all time. Expect outback mayhem and big laughs!

    Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For

    An A-list cast revisit the crime-infested streets of Frank Miller's acclaimed graphic novels for more ultra-stylish hard-boiled tales. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's long-gestating sequel to 2005's stunning 'Sin City' weaves together four more of Miller's thrillingly noir-ish stories. In the dark underbelly of this lawless metropolis, we catch up with some of the first film's most memorable characters. These include grizzled cop John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), the battered and imposing Marv (Mickey Rourke), and exotic dancer Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba). Once again, evil and corrupt Senator Roarke (Powers Boothe) is the primary villain. The interweaving stories also introduce us to the younger Dwight (Josh Brolin), before his facial reconstruction surgery. Newcomers to this seedy, violent urban cesspool include gambler Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green). Two of these deliciously dark pulp fiction yarns are taken from Miller's acclaimed graphic novels. He created the other two especially for the screen.

    A Dangerous Game

    The 6:30pm screening on the 5th Sep at Aberdeen Union Square has a Q&A with Director Anthony Baxter and characters from the film. A funny and eye-opening documentary exploring the environmental impact of luxury golf courses around the world. Three years ago, Anthony Baxter released his entertaining 'You've Been Trumped'. It followed US tycoon Donald Trump's controversial plan to build a golf resort on Scotland's beautiful, unspoilt north-east coastline. This was hailed as the best documentary of the year by renowned film critic Mark Kermode. Now Baxter's follow-up finds out what happened to Trump's scheme - and to local farmer Michael Forbes, who refused to sell his land to the billionaire. This time, Trump agrees to a full interview, which proves to be a memorable encounter! Baxter also broadens his scope to take a look at the ecological cost of similar luxury resorts being constructed for the super-rich in other countries. His travels take him as far afield as China, Las Vegas and Dubrovnik in Croatia. Contributors include environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy and actor and activist Alec Baldwin.
