    Ex Machina

    A computer coder is drawn into a mysterious experiment with a beautiful robot girl in this ingenious sci-fi thriller. At 24, Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is one of the top coders at Bluebook - the world's most successful internet company. He thinks his luck is really in when he wins a competition to spend a week at the remote Alaskan mountain retreat owned by the company's manipulative, reclusive billionaire CEO, Nathan (Oscar Isaac). Nathan reveals that Caleb is to become the human part of brilliant mathematician Alan Turing's famous test to determine whether a machine can successfully pass itself off as human. The subject of this bizarre experiment is the world's first genuine artificial intelligence, which is contained within the body of an attractive robot girl named Ava (Alicia Vikander). 'Sunshine' and '28 Days Later' writer Alex Garland's directorial debut is both a gripping sci fi thriller and a fascinating exploration of the nature of consciousness.

    The Theory of Everything

    The life-affirming, superbly acted true story of Stephen Hawking's first marriage. At a Cambridge University party in 1963, brilliant yet socially awkward physics postgraduate Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) meets literature student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). The attraction between them is immediate, and Jane more than holds her own against his fierce intellect. Stephen's advanced ideas about theoretical physics and cosmology also impress his tutor, Dennis Sciama (David Thewlis). But then he's given a devastating diagnosis of motor neurone disease and told he has just two years to live. Jane draws on her inner strength to stand by the man she loves as they face the future together. Oscar-winning 'Man on Wire' director James Marsh has a flair for telling incredible true stories. Adapted from Jane Hawking's memoir, this is a deeply moving, nuanced drama that doesn't shy away from the Hawkings' marital difficulties. It also benefits from a revelatory performance by Eddie Redmayne.

    American Sniper

    Clint Eastwood directs Bradley Cooper in the visceral true story of the US military's most lethal sniper. Having been raised by a religious father who impressed upon him the importance of fighting evil, Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) signs up for brutal Navy SEAL training. He's quickly shipped off to Fallujah, where his role as a marksman is to protect his brothers-in-arms. It's a nerve-shredding task, requiring him to make split-second distinctions between civilians and enemy combatants. Such is Chris's skill and pinpoint accuracy that he saves countless lives and earns the nickname 'Legend'. But this also means that insurgents soon put a price on his head. Legendary director Clint Eastwood returns to the battlefield for the first time since 'Flags of Our Fathers' and 'Letters from Iwo Jima'. His tense and harrowing film boasts a superlative performance from a bulked-up Bradley Cooper and doesn't shy away from exploring the terrible psychological aftermath of war.

    Taken 3

    Liam Neeson goes on the run as the 'Taken' trilogy reaches its shocking, explosive conclusion! Life has returned to normal for former government covert operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) after those traumatic kidnappings. Now he's keen to reconcile with his wife Lenore (Famke Janssen). But the nightmare begins again when he finds a bloody knife on the floor and Lenore lying dead on the bed! Assuming Bryan is the killer, the police quickly arrest him. But he breaks free and goes on the run, knowing that the real perpetrator will now target the one remaining person he loves most - his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace). Now every law enforcement agency in America is on his tail. But for Bryan, it's time to use those legendary "very particular skills" to dispense justice to his tormentors once and for all! The stakes have never been higher in this final pulse-pounding 'Taken' thriller.

    The Gambler

    Mark Wahlberg stars as a reckless gambling-addict in debt to a gangster in this slick thriller. Californian English literature professor Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is addicted to high-stakes gambling. As a result, he's been running up huge debts at the blackjack table. Now he owes $240,000 to a gambling ring run by impatient Mr. Lee (Alvin Ing), who gives him a week to pay it back. So self-destructive Bennett borrows even more money from gangster Neville (Michael K. Williams), hoping to win his way out of debt. Marking a change of direction from 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes', director Rupert Wyatt remakes the 1974 James Caan classic, with a gripping new script by William Monahan of 'The Departed' fame. The great supporting cast includes Oscar-winner Jessica Lange as Bennett's wealthy mother and a shaven-headed John Goodman as a menacing loan shark. Rising star Brie Larson plays student Amy, with whom Bennett falls in love.

    The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

    Peter Jackson's brilliant Hobbit trilogy reaches its glorious climax with an epic showdown to end them all! Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and the dwarves failed in their plan to kill Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) in his Lonely Mountain lair. Now they watch helplessly as the dragon flies off to rain fiery vengeance on Lake-town. Only Bard (Luke Evans) can stop the enraged beast now, using the last remaining dragon-slaying black arrow. Gandalf (Ian McKellen), meanwhile, has been imprisoned at Dol Guldor by the Necromancer. The stage is set for the stunning climactic battle for Smaug's hoard, to which Peter Jackson's astonishing second Middle-earth trilogy has been building. This sees goblins and wargs take on the dwarves, elves, men and giant eagles in one almighty conflict. And that's before you take into account the legions of orcs unleashed by the Necromancer! It's a suitably dazzling conclusion to one of the all-time great fantasy trilogies.


    Perennial children's favourite Paddington Bear makes his big screen debut in this delightful blend of live action and CGI. When polite Paddington Bear arrives in London from the Peruvian jungle, he's adopted by Mr and Mrs Brown (Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins). But it isn't long before he attracts the attentions of a sinister taxidermist! Michael Bond's much-loved creation finally comes to the screen courtesy of 'Harry Potter' producer David Heyman.


    Michael Keaton plays a washed-up superhero actor in this breathtakingly original showbiz satire. Not so long ago, Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) was flying high as the star of the Birdman superhero movie trilogy. But now he's desperate to gain some credibility with a make-or-break stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story. It's produced by his long-suffering friend Jake (Zach Galifianakis). Among the cast are his girlfriend Laura (Andrea Riseborough), film star Lesley (Naomi Watts) and insufferably egotistical method actor Mike Shiner (Edward Norton). To add to Riggan's woes, he's hired his embittered, recovering addict daughter Sam (Emma Stone) as an assistant. As things go from bad to worse, he's even mocked by Birdman himself! Former Batman star Michael Keaton gives a vanity-free, self-referential performance in 'Babel' and 'Biutiful' director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's pitch black comedy of desperation. Brilliant cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki makes it appear as though the film is one continuous shot.

    Into The Woods

    Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep star in a film version of the hit Broadway musical that intertwines several Grimm fairytale classics. A childless baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) venture into the woods to confront the witch (Meryl Streep) who placed a curse on their family. On their colourful journey, they encounter the likes of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) and the big bad wolf (Johnny Depp)! Disney's adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's much-loved Broadway musical puts a new spin on these timeless characters.


    Reese Witherspoon stars in a powerful and moving true-life wilderness adventure scripted by Nick Hornby. Following a personal tragedy, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) slips into a cycle of self-destructive behaviour. Her ex-husband Paul (Thomas Sadowski) and best friend Aimee (Gaby Hoffmann) are powerless to help her. But then Cheryl makes the decision to embark upon an extraordinary, life-changing journey. She takes an eventful solo hike along the epic 1,100 mile Pacific West Trail, which runs all the way up the western spine of the United States. Nick Hornby follows his Oscar-nominated screenplay for 'An Education' with this adaptation of Cheryl Strayed's bestselling memoir. Reese Witherspoon is a revelation as Cheryl, in her meatiest role since 'Walk the Line'. She's ably supported by Laura Dern, who gives a heartbreaking performance as Cheryl's mother, Bobbi. The director is versatile Jean-Marc Vallee, whose previous film, the much-acclaimed 'Dallas Buyers Club', won three Oscars.


    An ambitious jazz drummer is pushed to greatness by a monstrous mentor in this dazzling drama. Nineteen-year-old drummer Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) is determined not to settle for mediocrity. He wants to become one of the jazz greats, like his idol Buddy Rich. He wins a place at America's top music academy, where Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons) is in charge of the leading jazz ensemble. Andrew's talents soon catch this star's instructor's attention. But Fletcher is a hard, cruel, bullying taskmaster who drives his competitive students ruthlessly towards perfection. Writer/director Damien Chazelle's blistering musical drama was the winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival. At this intense and electrifying film's core are two superlative performances. Great character actor J.K. Simmons, of 'Juno' and 'Spider-man' fame gets one of the best roles of his career, while Miles Teller seizes his breakthrough moment.


    Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star in a gripping psychological drama based on the shocking true story of an Olympic champion. Despite being an Olympic gold medal winning wrestler, Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) feels frustrated. He has always lived in the shadow of his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), a fellow wrestling Olympian. A way out of poverty and into sporting history beckons when he is summoned to meet eccentric multi-millionaire John Eleuthere du Pont (Steve Carell). The tycoon invites Mark to move onto his sprawling estate and train with his Team Foxcatcher for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to win the respect of his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave), the unstable du Pont is determined to assemble and coach a world-class athletics team. But this is to have ultimately tragic consequences. Bennett Miller, Oscar-nominated director of 'Capote', is behind the camera for this extraordinary fable of the American Dream gone awry.

    The Woman In Black

    Daniel Radcliffe stars in a spine-chilling adaptation of the classic English ghost story. A young lawyer named Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) reluctantly leaves his son behind in London and travels to the north of England. Here, at a remote and unfriendly village, he finds the decaying Eel Marsh House, where he is tasked with settling the late owner's affairs. Staying alone in the house, he witnesses terrifying apparitions. Arthur slowly uncovers the village's dark and tragic history - and learns to his horror that children are dying under mysterious circumstances. When the vengeful spirit known as The Woman in Black threatens his own son, Arthur must face a terrifying supernatural ordeal. Adapted by top British screenwriter Jane Goldman from Susan Hill's timeless ghost story (also a long-running London stage play), this eerie tale from 'Eden Lake' director James Watkins marks Daniel Radcliffe's eagerly anticipated first lead role since Harry Potter. Includes special exclusive footage of the forthcoming sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death.
