FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

The former CIA hitman is called back into action this week in The Equalizer 2, big bad shark The Meg noises up some submarines, and kids with superpowers break out of camps in The Darkest Minds. A legendary filmmaker's life is explored in The Eyes Of Orson Welles, 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, plus there are rereleases for Joan Crawford melodrama Mildred Pierce and black comedy classic Heathers.
