FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

There are superhero shenanigans this week in Deadpool, a rock star's holiday gets complicated in A Bigger Splash, a biopic of Christina Noble explores her work to help street kids in Vietnam, and a white supremacist tries to take over a town in Welcome To Leith. Jane Austen gets a reboot in Pride And Prejudice And Zombies and there's cannibal gore in The Green Inferno, while real life explorers take on the challenge of Mount Meru - see what climber Jimmy Chin told us about it. There's a biopic of Dalton Trumbo, the man who stood up to McCarthy - we spoke to director Jay Roach - while another legend is remembered in Janis: Little Girl Blue - D.A. Pennebaker shared his memories. A master of the onscreen samurai death trains a newcomer in Uzumasa Limelight, Icelandic farmers reconcile an old feud in Rams - we chatted to director Grímur Hákonarson and composer Atli Örvarsson - and there's a remake of Point Break. All this, plus we're bringing you news and reviews from the Glasgow Youth Film Festival.
