“They’ll be punished, I promise you…”

Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.

Game Night

Feb 22, 18 Game Night



Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all part of the game…right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this “game”—nor Brooks—are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had…or game over.

Thanks to Roadshow




Game Night may not be a great film by any stretch of the imagination – to be granted I wasn’t expecting much heading in…but it’s definitely a fun and an entertaining ride from beginning to the very end. Lamorne Morris and Billy Magnussen are some of the obvious standouts among the film’s enjoyable cast of characters, but Jesse Plemons is the true MVP, stealing every single one of his scenes with ease. The film isn’t without its problems, with the convoluted third act jumping the shark almost to the point of parody, and not all of the jokes land (although most do thanks to the cast’s great comedic timing), but nonetheless Game Night makes for a perfectly fun time at the movies.

Going into this film I just assumed that this would be your average Marvel superhero film with some social commentary tacked on, but i was actually pleasantly surprised. This is a film that, for a superhero film, is fairly unique whilst still familiar to what we love about Marvel – the plot points are pretty much stock standard.

On the whole, the film is an enjoyable experience. The effects are brilliant, but not too in-your-face (except maybe in the last fight scene, where they did get a bit over the top), and this is a much more human film than a lot of other superhero movies, with lots of character interaction and bonding. The social commentary on race is well inserted and doesn’t feel too overbearing in the film. The acting is superb all around, as are the overall characterisations, and overall I found it fairly difficult to really fault the film. Special shout out to the costuming department – Black Panther’s new suit, and the different tribal dress were amazing.

However, whilst it does a lot of things very well, there is nothing that it does exceptionally. At no point in the film did I think ‘wow, this is the best thing ever’, more ‘yeah this is pretty good’. Whilst a fun film to watch, it isn’t really one I would watch again or remember watching in the future.

Overall I would definitely recommend this film, even if you aren’t a big Marvel fan, as it is a well written, well acted movie that can make for thought-provoking movie – just don’t go in expecting to see the greatest movie ever made.

In Cinemas MARCH 8
But see it first, at the preview screening!


Academy Award® winner James Marsh (The Theory of Everything) directs the incredible true story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst (Academy Award® winner Colin Firth, The King’s Speech, The Railway Man) and his attempt to win the first non-stop single-handed round-the-world yacht race in 1968. The story of Crowhurst’s dangerous solo voyage and the struggles he confronted on the epic journey while his wife, Clare (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz, The Light between Oceans, Youth), and children waited for his return is one of the most enduring mysteries of recent times. The Mercy sails into cinemas March 8.
