UK Film Releases – 20th to 24th August


There was a dearth of new releases last week but this week we are overwhelmed for choices.  I might need to take out an overdraft from the bank.  Overall I think I am going to go with Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson as my most anticipated as it’s sci-fi and is directed by Luc Besson who was behind The Fifth Element which is a film I love.

A close second is Sin City 2: A Dame to Die For which looks very dramatic and more importantly includes the extremely talented Eva Green who elevated what could have been a very ordinary 300: Rise of an Empire.

If rom-coms are your thing Harry Potter sorry Daniel Radcliffe stars in What If that appears to be a run of the mill comedy that asks the question can men and women be friends?  If you want to scare the crap out of yourself the choice this week is the Eric Bana film Deliver us From Evil which claims to be based on a true story as a skeptical cop investigating strange events.

On the subject of crap Into The Storm is out this week which stars a lot of special effects and Richard Armitage who I last saw in a British period drama North and South.  Wow, they couldn’t find anyone else.  I really shouldn’t judge in advance but if I go to see it my expectations will be rock bottom.
