Finding Dory

For fans of Disney/Pixar animations, you will be spoiled this weekend with the 3D release of the (13 years late) sequel to mega-hit Finding Nemo (2003). This film sees Dory (voiced memorably by Ellen DeGeneres), Marlin’s pal during his progeny-seeking journey, try to find her own family.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War

Casting one’s mind back, the first Huntsman film garnered international headlines when leading lady Kristen Stewart was found to have cheated on then boyfriend Robert Pattinson with the film’s director Rupert Sanders. Perhaps Stewart felt it was one bite of the poisoned apple and twice shy, for she is not part of the cast in this sequel, although Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin and Nick Frost are. Here, two evil sisters (Theron and Emily Blunt) prepare to conquer a fairytale land. Two renegades (Hemsworth and Jessica Chastain) set out to stop them. Showing all over the UK as of Saturday; previews only on Thursday and Friday. See the official website for more.
