    Upcoming releases:

    Rise of the Guardians – Certificate PG

    More than a collection of our beloved childhood legends, “The Guardians” are a group of heroes - each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch (Jude Law) lays down the gauntlet to dispel our most cherished beliefs, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and the imagination that lives within us all. In order to overcome Pitch, the Guardians must also convince Jack Frost (Chris Pine) to join their ranks, as Pitch’s campaign of fear & darkness threatens to envelop the world. The animated 3D fantasy-adventure also stars ALEC BALDWIN as North (Santa Claus), HUGH JACKMAN as Bunnymund (Easter Bunny) and ISLA FISHER as Tooth (Tooth Fairy).

    Trouble with the Curve - Certificate 12A

    In this baseball drama, Clint Eastwood stars as veteran scout Gus Lobel, a man on one last recruiting run before he takes to the bench.

    Taking along his daughter Mickey (Amy Adams), a hotshot lawyer, the pair bond as they share the crucial talent spotting decisions that her father’s entire career will be judged by. Also starring Justin Timberlake and John Goodman.

    The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu Ray – Certificate 12 (Out Dec 3rd)

    It has been eight years since Batman (Christian Bale) vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane (Tom Hardy), a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

    The Bourne Legacy (DVD/Blu Ray) – Certificate 12 (Out Dec 3rd)

    The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in this chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise, expanding the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story introducing new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.
