This Week's UK Cinema Releases

Week Commencing February 12th 2018

It's easy to be spoilt for choice this week with three big films to choose from, two of which head into next month's Oscars with high hopes. Black Panther opens tomorrow to guarantee it an ridiculously large opening weekend, while The Shape Of Water gets a mid-week release. Lady Bird comes to cinemas on Friday so the staggered releases shouldn't impact too negatively on each one. Elsewhere, Father Figures gets a wide release while Chinatown Detective 2 and You Have No Idea How Much I Love You close out this week's schedule.
