FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

There's giant-size fun at the cinema this week as The BFG strides onto the screen - see what Steven Spielberg had to say about it - and you can journey to the final frontier in Star Trek Beyond. Six mean aim to find out who is best in Chevalier, while gals take on ghouls in the Ghostbusters remake. Two women fall in love in Seventies France in Summertime - see our interview with composer Grégoire Hetzel - and two brothers uncover a family secret in Men & Chicken. Turkish cops blunder into a nightmare world in Baskin and a horror anthology explores annual Holidays. Meanwhile, documentary The Hard Stop looks at racism and the death of Mark Duggan. All this, plus we still have reviews coming in from the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
