FILMS OUT THIS WEEK
Simba returns to the spotlight this week as The Lion King is given the CGI treatment, and Pavarotti is profiled. A mysterious stranger kidnaps a bride in The Wedding Guest, a Welsh girl tries to protect her family from the effects of the Industrial Revolution in Gwen and conflict plays out in the shadow of different wars in Making Noise Quietly. The famous submarine disaster is dramatised in Kursk: The Last Mission and you can enjoy a masterclass in filmmaking in Varda by Agnès. Bill Murray and Adam Driver play cops who run into trouble when The Dead Don't Die, an Uber driver finds himself working with a detective in Stuber and a couple who fall in love at first sight face trouble as they try to conceive in Only You. There are anniversary rereleases for The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions and, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the original Jaws returns to the big screen. We're also bringing you reviews and interviews from the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal and Outfest Los Angeles.
