FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Charlize Theron plays a spy hunting a murderer this week in Atomic Blonde, while space cops investigate a mysterious evil in Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, and a dead man haunts his wife in A Ghost Story - read what star Casey Affleck told us about it. A possessed doll leads to trouble in Annabelle: Creation, and an artist's tale is told in Tom Of Finland - we spoke to director Dome Karukoski. Phone characters have an adventure in The Emoji Movie, Morrissey's pre-Smiths days are explored in England Is Mine, and you can see how German PoWs were used to clear landmines from Danish beaches in Land Of Mine. The story of folk artist Maud Lewis is told in Maudie - read our interview with director Aisling Walsh - and there are re-releases for Joe Orton biopic Prick Up Your Ears and classic French noir Le Doulos. Plus you can catch horror Cut Shoot Kill, documentary Real Boy and comedy Fun Mom Dinner on VoD. We still have reviews coming in from Fantasia and the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
