Death on the Nile

Released: 11 February

Who dunnit? It’s usually the butler isn’t it? Are there butlers on the Nile? I’ve never been. You might know who did it as Death On The Nile is one of Agatha Christie’s classics but expect Kenneth Branagh to bring some modern magic to this mystery. With an eclectic cast including Gal Gadot, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Russell Brand, this sort of sequel to Branagh’s Murder On The Orient Express is worth a visit to your local cinema.


Released: 11 February

This film has Channing Tatum in it and his co-star is a dog. You’re probably already booking tickets. Channing co-directs this heart-warming story of a man trying to get to his best friend’s and the dog’s handler’s funeral. The dog has a lot of issues but so does Channing’s character and together they might be able to help each other out. Bring some tissues because it’s going to get emotional.

Marry Me

Released: 11 February

A Notting Hill for the internet-age, Marry Me tells the story of how music superstars Kat (Jennifer Lopez) and Bastian are about to get married before an audience across the entire world. Moments before exchanging vows, Kat learns that Bastian has cheated on her. So she decides to marry a random man, Charlie, from the crowd (nice guy Owen Wilson). Cue Charlie struggling with her public lifestyle, being chased by people live-streaming him on Instagram and Kat struggling with his grounded normal life. We can probably guess how it’ll end but it doesn’t matter, we’re here for the ride. It’s the perfect romantic film for Valentine’s Day.


Released: 11 February

Hollywood’s latest attempt at making a half-decent movie based on a video game. Actor of the moment, Tom Holland stars as street-smart thief, Nathan Drake. Nate is just doing his thing when he’s recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (played by Mark Wahlberg) to recover a lost treasure. But what starts as a simple heist job becomes a global, white-knuckle race to find the treasure before bad guy Antonio Banderas. Queue some ridiculous action sequences and some fun quips from Holland in what is sure to be the first of many Uncharted films.
