  • Playing for Keeps

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Django Unchained

    Quentin Tarantino's new film takes place in the time of American slavery, but will no doubt contain the same blend of endless, intricate dialogue scenes, sudden violence and in-jokey movie references as every other Tarantino movie.

  • Monsters, Inc 3D

    3-D version of Pixar's riotous monster mash of 2001.

  • The Sessions

    Hollywood's latest attempt to turn an apparently bad-taste story – a man living in an iron lung endeavours to lose his virginity – and turn it into something cosy, uplifting and, we're guessing, just a teensy bit saccharine.

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Broken City

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Bullhead

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

February 2013

  • A Late Quartet

    Four members of a world famous string quartet fall out due to a combination of tragedy, ego and what the press release describes as 'irrepressible lust' which, given the central cast, is a slightly frightening prospect.

  • All Stars

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Bullet to the Head

    The film features Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Christian Slater and others and is based on Alexis Nolent’s graphic novels of the same name rather than the 1990 John Woo film with the same title.

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Flight

  • Song for Marion

    An elderly man, struggling to cope with his wife's worsening illness, is encouraged to join a local choir in this uplifting drama, marking a sharp shift in direction for writer-director Paul Andrew Williams.

  • Beautiful People

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Moulin Rouge! (RI)

    Naive, lovelorn writer/composer Christian is taken up by bohemians like Toulouse-Lautrec to put on a show at the scandalous showplace of the title, where courtesan/torch singer Satine will do anything to further her acting career.

  • William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (RI)

    Baz Luhrmann's gleefully cinematic version of the play is so relentlessly inventive and innovative, it takes 20 minutes to get a grasp on how appropriate is his approach to the material.

  • Run for your Wife

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • This Is 40

    Director Judd Apatow returns to the source of his most enduring hit ‘Knocked Up’ and revisits the married couple Debbie and Pete (played by Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd) who were such memorable supporting characters in that bawdy pregnancy comedy.

    There are shades of ‘Toy Story’ to this Disney animation about the villain of a video game who longs to be a good guy, and sneaks into a first-person shoot-'em-up determined to make amends.

  • Cloud Atlas

    Told in seven loosely connected sections which run the gamut from historical drama through modern realism to distant sci-fi, this is a tale so vast it’s taken three writer-directors to bring it to the screen.

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Vinyl

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Jadoo

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Robot and Frank

    ‘Robot & Frank’ is sweetness itself: the buddy-buddy relationship between Langella and the straightest straight man in history is nicely written, while the new-lease-of-life angle is played with a pleasing absence of sentiment.

  • Oz: The Great and Powerful

    Sam Raimi helms this long-hyped 'Wizard of Oz' prequel told from the point of view of the Wizard. James Franco takes the lead as Oscar Diggs, a circus magician who winds up in Oz with a rather sexy trio of witches.

  • Reality

    The narrative focuses increasingly on Luciano, a Naples fishmonger supplementing his family’s income with scams involving kitchen goods, who’s persuaded to seek fame and fortune by auditioning for a series of ‘Big Brother’, so the film turns from amusing, faintly absurd satire towards ever ‘bigger’ themes.

  • Carrie

    Time Out has not reviewed this film yet.

  • Oblivion

    The film follows a veteran soldier who is sent to a distant planet. Once there, he is instructed to destroy the remains of an alien race, but an encounter with an exiled traveller forces him to question his perceptions of the planet and his mission.

    Comedy about a divorced couple who pretend to be happily married for the wedding of their adopted son (Ben Barnes) and his fiancée (Amanda Seyfried).

  • Postman Pat

    One for the toddlers, a nice bit of old-school animated whimsy. Except that's not this movie. The (as yet unconfirmed) full title is rumoured to be 'Postman Pat: The Movie – You Know You're the One', and concerns Pat's attempts to get on a TV talent show.

  • The Hangover Part III

    When 'The Hangover Part II' survived critical brickbats to become the smash hit comedy of 2011, another sequel was inevitable. Director Todd Phillips has insisted that this third movie will act as a finale, with no more sequels to follow.

  • Jaws (RI)

    Is there such a thing as a perfect film? One that knows what it wants to achieve and does it, flawlessly, artfully and intelligently? If so, then ‘Jaws’ is as good a candidate as any.

  • R.I.P.D.

    Ryan Reynolds plays a dead cop investigating his own murder in this paranormal crime comedy. He’s Nick Walker, a slain officer who joins the Rest in Peace department: basically ghost cops with unfinished business.

    Another tricky book-to-screen adaptation, as genre-defying director Marc Forster (‘Monster’s Ball’, ‘Finding Neverland’) tackles Max ‘son of Mel’ Brooks’s fine, journalistic account of a zombie uprising.
