Film: What’s Out: UK Cinema Guide – New This Week

The Meg – Jason Statham v The Megalodon (giant prehistoric shark), if there’s anything else I need to say then I’m not sure this is the film for you. It will be totally ridiculous, possibly stupid, but almost certainly a great time at the cinema. Opens in cinemas on Friday.

The Darkest Minds – the latest product to try and surf the Stranger Things wave. This teen thriller is from the same producers who brought us the hit Netflix show. After disease has killed almost all children and young people in the US, the 2% that remain have developed superpowers and have been locked in internment camps. The film follows Ruby, who makes a daring escape from the camp.


The Negotiator – Jon Hamm stars as a CIA operative in this thriller directed by successful TV director Brad Anderson. Also stars the excellent Rosamund Pike and is written by the same man who wrote the Bourne series and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Ant-Man and the Wasp – the 20th entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sees Ant-Man joined in action by, you guessed it, the Wasp.
