This Week's UK Cinema Releases

Week Commencing November 6th 2017

The first Paddington film proved to be a lovingly made re-imagining of our favourite bear, and this weeks release of the imaginatively titled Paddington 2 hopes to win people's hearts all over again. Sean Baker's The Florida Project looks set to be an Oscar sleeper while Professor Marston and The Wonder Women hopes to build on the success of the Warner Bros smash by telling the story behind the superhero's creator. British independent thriller Kaleidoscope sees Toby Jones directed by his brother Rupert, and Predator gets the 4k treatment to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Renowned documentarian Alex Gibney continues to churn them out with No Stone Unturned, and finally, modest sci-fi Marjorie Prime asks us to reflect on age, memory and time.
