We go back to having a smaller amount of films being released in cinemas this weekend, but that doesn't mean they will be smaller in scale as most have something huge about them. 4 films are released and I think 3 of them you would have all definitely heard of. One is a well known computer game sequel, one the next sci-fi epic since The Matrix, and another that stars everyone's favourite funny man. It is actually a week where it will be difficult to decide what to see despite not too many films to be released. To help you decide as usual I have given you a brief summary of each below and the trailers for you to watch. Enjoy your weekend.
1. Milla Jovovich is back fighting the dead in RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION the fifth instalment to the famous computer game turned movie franchise. This time Milla teams up with Michelle Rodriguez and her rebellious allies in order to take down the corporation that have had them living fictitious lives to avoid the undead. Also starring: Sienna Guillory & Aryana Engineer. Will this game end this time?

2. Man of the moment Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars alongside Bruce Willis in sci-fi thriller LOOPER. In a future where time travel has been invented, Levitt plays an assassin, or looper, whose objective is to kill targets sent back in time to them so he can erase them before they exist, however it all becomes a bit more complicated when his next target turns out to be him in the future. Also starring: Emily Blunt & Paul Dano. Whose loop will close?
3. Finally Will Ferrell is back doing the kind of movies we all love him for, and who better to star him alongside then Alan from The Hangover, Zach Galifianakis. In THE CAMPAIGN these two comedy heavyweights star as opposing candidates for congress. Galifianakis's amateur politician versus Ferrell's arrogant long standing congressman. Also starring: Jason Sudeikis & Dylan McDermott. Whose less perfect for the role?

4. Last up we have little known film BARBARA, the story of a doctor who works in East Germany during the 80's who is suddenly banished to a small country hospital with no explanation as to why. Starring: Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Rainer Bock, & Christina Hecke. What is her solution?
There you have it guys your four film selection for this week. What will you choose to see? There has been a lot of talk about Looper, Ferrell always makes people laugh, and Barbara will probably only have a limited release so if it is on near you then it may be a hidden gem. Anyway good luck making your choice and come back Monday where I will be reviewing the film that I went to see.
