FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Simon Pegg returns this week in Hector And The Search for Happiness but there's not much joy about as brother takes on brother in Blood Ties and The Rover pursues a gang of car thieves across the outback. The Expendables 3 sees the old mercenary unit back in action and teens in trouble realise We Gotta Get Out Of This Place. Gérard Depardieu stars in Welcome To New York, based on the story of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Wakolda sees a family befriended by a sinister doctor, and Lilting sees friendship form between a bereaved mother and her son's boyfriend, while another friendship might turn into love in What If. Meanwhile, the hero of The Unbeatables goes on an adventure with table football characters, and Planes: Fire & Rescue is still flying high. There are re-releases for Hitchcock classic To Catch A Thief and Jim Jarmusch's Down By Law, and documentary Dinosaur 13 reveals the legal battles over fossil rights. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of Film4 Frightfest.
