FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Big bad shark The Meg threatens to take a bite out of the box office this week, kids with superpowers break out of camps in The Darkest Minds, a diplomat tries to save his friend in The Negotiator and it's a dog's life in the trenches for Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero. A feud between neighbours gets out of control in Under The Tree and a shy woman discovers her inner desires in The Heiresses - read what director Marcello Martinessi told us about it. Pope Francis: A Man Of His Word chronicles the life of the Pontiff - director Wim Wenders shared his thoughts with us - and there's a celebration of art in Leaning Into The Wind: Andy Goldsworthy. Meanwhile, there's still time to catch Ant-Man And The Wasp in action, a girl goes looking for a missing boy in Sicilian Ghost Story, a journalist investigates a sighting of the Virgin Mary in The Apparition, Agnes Varda meets those who live on leftovers in The Gleaners And I and cartoon animals put on a show in The Big Bad Fox And Other Tales. A German spy must rescue a chemical weapons expert in Syria in Damascus Cover and a dad and daughter form an unlikely singing duo in Hearts Beat Loud, plus there's a rerelease for black comedy classic Heathers.
