Most Popular

The true story of Oscar Grant, a young black man shot by the police in Oakland in 2009, is enacted with painful honesty by The Wire’s Michael B Jordan and rightly won prizes at Cannes and Sundance.

2 | Cold in July

Out on 27 June
Dexter’s Michael C Hall plays a Texas father who shoots an intruder, only to find the cops have purposefully misidentified the deceased to pull off a cover-up of their own. Tense, taught and bloody. That’ll do nicely.

3 | 22 Jump Street

Out on 6 June
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill cash in on their surprisingly funny 21 Jump Street reboot by moving across the street and going undercover at college. The law of diminishing returns may well kick in, but we’ll give it a chance. 

 

 

4 | Of Horses and Men

Out on 13 June
An Icelandic film about the relationship between humans and horses, included primarily on the strength of this poster. We’ve all been there.

5 | 112 Weddings

Out on 13 June
Documentary director Doug Block revisits couples he filmed in his sideline as a wedding cameraman to see how married life is working out. It’s hardly escapism, but would make for a thought-provoking date movie.

 

 

6 | The Art of the Steal

Out on 20 June
A heist comedy starring Kurt Russell as an art thief and stunt man called Crunch Calhoun. On another occasion, possibly involving alcohol, the previous sentence might have put this at the top of this list, but them's the breaks.

 

 

7 | Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie

Out on 27 June
Brendan O'Carroll’s inexplicably popular sitcom character gets her own film, in which her fruit and veg stall is under threat from Russian gangsters. If you pay to see this one you only have yourselves D’blame.
