FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

The Magnificent Seven come riding back into town this week in revamped form, the future of humanity depends on a zombie in The Girl With All The Gifts and carnival performers are hunted for entertainment in Rob Zombie's 31. A private eye meets a mysterious dame in Aloys, an illegal pearl fisher falls for a conservationist in Scottish Mussel, and a boy explores the New Zealand bush in Hunt For The Wilderpeople. We go back into the woods in search of the Blair Witch, there are dodgy dealings next door in The Neighbour - see our interview with Bill Engvall - and The Infiltrator takes on a drugs cartel. If you want something lighter, there's Bridget Jones's Baby - we spoke to stars Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth. Music fans will love documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years, and there's a re-release for the original Akira. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of the San Sebastian Film Festival.
