The official Seize Films webpage has the lowdown; you can catch this at key UK cities.

The Tale Of the Princess Kaguya

From the same studio that gave the world Spirited Away, this animated feature explores how a tiny girl found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter (James Caan) and his wife (Mary Steenburgen), grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady (Chloë Grace Moretz).

The official webpage is here; you can catch the film at key cities only.

The VoicesThe Voices poster

It’s not often that Ryan Reynolds makes an amusing, or indeed an interesting, movie. In fact, he probably hasn’t ever, but this one promises to go the distance and be good. It might actually be great, going by the very funny and completely whacky trailer. He plays a lonely factory worker (is that possible with his looks?) who, urged on by the voices of his beloved cat and dog, murders co-worker Gemma Arterton. His shrink Jackie Weaver tries to help him, as he then starts romancing Anna Kendrick, another colleague. The pastel visual style and clean colours are reminiscent of a John Waters film, but the director is Marjane Satrapi. One to watch out for folks. The official Arrow Films webpage is here; it will have a wide screening so should be somewhere very near you soon.

Wild Card

Jason Statham starring action thriller about a bodyguard (Statham) who goes after the sadistic thug who beat his friend, only to find that the object of his wrath is the son of a powerful mob boss. The official Facebook page is here; catch it as easily as you would the common cold folks.
