This Week's UK Cinema Releases
Week Commencing June 25th 2018
Shailene Woodley's Adrift is one of three big releases for the week, with goofy comedy Tag and Sicario 2: Soldado also going wide across the country. Director Debra Granik returns with the beautifully told Leave No Trace, while The Bookshop tells a big story in a small part of 1950s England. Patrick is a Disney film starring a little spoiled pug and The Endless is an indie sci-fi that arrives to wide critical acclaim. The trailer for Chinese film, Animal World, looks completely bonkers and Habit is a small British horror film set in the dark shadows of Manchester.
