Last Cab To Darwin:
Starring Michael Caton and Jacki Weaver, and from Last Train to Freo director Jeremy Sims, Last Cab To Darwin is an unusual road movie that takes in the beauty and majesty of the Australian outback. Cab driver Rex (Caton) is a loner, and has never left his home town of Broken Hill. When told he doesn’t have long to live, he embarks on an epic drive through the Australian outback to Darwin in a bid to die on his own terms. Along the way on his journey of self-discovery, he realises that before you can end your life, you have to live it, and to live it, you’ve got to share it. Based on a true story, and with co-star performances from Emma Hamilton and Ningali Lawford-Wolf.

The Fantastic Four is a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, about four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Starring Miles Teller (Marlon Williams look-alike), Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the titular heroes, the film comes exactly 10 years after the first Hollywood incarnation. Mister Fantastic, Susan Storm, The Human Torch and Thing again bump heads with villain Doctor Doom (can Toby Kebbell out-do Julian McMahon?). Directed by Josh Trank. Missing the silver surfer though…

Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that motto and is enjoying what she feels is a life free from stifling and boring romantic commitment. When starts falling for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (SNL‘s Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if she’s had it wrong all along. Funny girl of the moment Amy Schumer headlines this rom-com, and although it’s now difficult to divorce the film from the tragic shootings in Louisiana, Schumer’s leading lady status is sure to soar on the back of this solid debut.

BAFTA winner and Academy Award nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by Rufus Norris.
