FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Colonists get a nasty surprise this week in Alien: Covenant, a US lobbyist takes on gun control in Miss Sloane, an actor must reprise his detective role for real in Mindhorn, and a woman is intrigued by the man who visits her fiancé's grave in Frantz - we spoke to director François Ozon. Islanders help themselves to the cargo of a wrecked ship in the Whisky Galore! remake, while touring together threatens the friendship of Folk Hero & Funny Guy. A woman finds her relationship with her father strained in the wake of her brother's death in The Levelling, while another discovers she's connected to a monster in Colossal, and there's a re-release for Woody Allen classic Manhattan. All this, plus we're on the Croisette at the Cannes Film Festival, bringing you all the latest.
