Keanu Reeves plays a cop whose partner is found stabbed to death, apparently after his dodgy deals catch up with him. Not believing the rumours and despite the fact he is sleeping with the man’s widow, Reeves determines to clear the man’s name with the help of beautiful witness Ana De Maras in this efficient looking thriller. See the official Lionsgate website for more. Showing at key cities only, so Find Any Film will tell you what one’s.

The ForestThe Forest poster

Brit girl of the moment Natalia Dormer loves a good nudie scene and has previously got them out in: The Tudors, Game Of Thrones, Rush (2013) and The Scandalous Lady W. It’s difficult to tell with the trailer for this ‘zombies in the woods’ horror if she will comply again, but there are at least a few scares as she travels deep into a forest where bad spirits reside to find her missing twin sister. Showing all over the UK, see the official website for more.

King JackKing Jack

Drama about Jack (Charley Plummer) a scrappy kid stuck in a run-down small town. He is trapped in a violent feud with a cruel older bully and faces another bout of summer school. So when Jack’s aunt falls ill and his younger cousin must stay with him for the weekend, the last thing Jack wants to do is look after him. Unfortunately no one really cares what Jack wants. See the official website for more. See Find Any Film for which key cities you can see this.

Secret In Their EyesSecret In Their Eye poster

A solid star cast headlines this thriller from Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, 2013). A team of rising FBI investigators (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor (Nicole Kidman) is torn apart when they discover that Roberts’ teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered. 13 years later, a new lead is uncovered. But no one is prepared for the shocking secret that will reveal the destructive effects of personal vengeance. See the official website for more; this will be showing all across the UK.

And on Thursday 4 March…
