Movies

Friday 6th February

The Interview

Seth Rogen and James Franco’s ultra-controversial North Korean comedy almost started a war towards the end of last year, with cinemas across the country refusing to show the film. As far as we know, it’ll still be in cinemas over here…

Jupiter Ascending

This ambitious sci-fi from the Wachowskis (creators of The Matrix) sees Mila Kunis playing a cleaner with a deeper cosmic purpose. Channing Tatum is her intergalactic bodyguard.

Selma

The Oscar-nominated historical drama recounts the Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights marches of the 1950s, led by Martin Luther King.

Shaun The Sheep

Aardman’s lovable farm animal gets his own movie. Lets hope its more like the brilliant Paddington rather than the slightly rubbish Postman Pat.


Friday 13th February

Fifty Shades of Grey

Everyone’s favourite mucky book finally hits the big screen. Expect to see lots of flustered looking mums hanging around your local multiplex.

Love is Strange

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina play a same-sex couple forced to part after 39 years together, leading to one of them living with a young family and the other with a younger same-sex couple.


Friday 20th February

Project Almanac

A couple of teenagers build a time machine, but their meddling in the past has massive implications for the future. Did they never watch Back to the Future?!

Blackhat

Michael Mann of Heat and Chris Hemsworth of Thor team up for this hacker-themed thriller.


Thursday 26th February

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Sonny, the hero of the surprise hit first movie, is expanding to a 2nd hotel. Unfortunately, he also has a lavish wedding to plan…


27th February

The Boy Next Door

Jennifer Lopez stars in this raunchy thriller about a teacher who sleeps with a young neighbour, only for the neighbour to develop a dangerous obsession. It looks cheesier than a cheddar factory, but it could be a guilty pleasure for some.

Focus

Will Smith and Margot Robbie star in this rom-com-dramedy (whatever you want to call it) about a conman and his wronged ex.

This co-op first-person shooter sees one player take on the role of an increasingly powerful monster, while the rest of the team try and hunt them down.


13th February

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (Nintendo 3DS)

Majora's Mask

Finally: a chance to play the 2nd best Zelda game on the bus, train or toilet (depending on your approach to hygiene)!


20th February

The Order: 1886 (PS4)

The Order: 1886, an action-adventure following a historic gang of monster hunters, has been in the works since 2010. Let’s hope it was worth the wait.


TV

8th February

Better Call Saul

The long-awaited prequel (and kind-of sequel, apparently) to Breaking Bad finally airs on the 8th, although we’ll have to wait until 7am on the 9th when the show is added to Netflix.

The Walking Dead: Season 5, Part 2

After a long mid-season break, Rick and the gang return to bash some zombie brains in. Don’t expect many laughs though, especially after the events of the previous episode…
