OUR resident film expert Gavin Miller gives you the lowdown on the latest blockbuster movie releases.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN – VAMPIRE HUNTER (15): Acclaimed-director Timur Bekmambetov and producer Tim Burton team up for this visionary fantasy-horror take on this alternative life of the sixteenth president – as history’s greatest hunter of the undead. Reportedly it’s no-holds-barred as blood-thirsty vampires plan to take over the United States, with relative newcomer Benjamin Walker in the headlining role.
THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT (15): This intelligent rom-com from the team behind last year’s sleeper hit Bridesmaids courts the trails and tribulations of Tom (Jason Segel) and Violet (Emily Brunt) as unexpected events keep tripping them up on their road to matrimony. With generally favourable reviews Stateside, this should at least be light relief from blockbuster overload.
