FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

It's a bad week for San Andreas as the big one hits, a young Maori man seeks revenge in The Bad Lands and a Dark Ages wanderer takes up the Sword Of Vengeance. A herdsman is threatened by fundamentalists in Timbuktu, Al Pacino plays an ageing rock star in Danny Collins, and family life turns nasty for The Goob. Meanwhile, a woman who has stolen someone else's blind date needs to Man Up, imagination is the key to Tomorrowland: A World Beyond, and a couple of personal trainers struggle to get their emotions in shape in Results. Love takes unexpected forms in Spring, skateboarding Iranian vampire western A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night offers dark romance, and Poltergeist 3D packs in the scares. Rapping Yakuza gangs go to war in Tokyo Tribe and there's a treat for kids of all ages with Moomins On The Riviera. All this, plus we still have reviews coming in from Cannes, and we're looking forward to Sheffield Doc/Fest.
