Street Dance 3D ¡A bailar! - Think Fame in 3D, a technology that has suddenly become all cool again this year, even amongst some cinema-goers who can remember the Jaws 3D effort. Despite the generally-agreed fiasco that was the re-make of Fame released last year, it seems that someone thinks there is a desire amongst some part of cinema audiences to see kids with dreams of becoming dancers spontaneously breaking into perfectly choreographed routines. And so it is with Street Dance 3D, that sees street and ballet dancers overcome their prejudices about each other's art form. Curiously, one of the film's stars is the refined and beautiful Charlotte Rampling (she plays a ballet teacher), not the sort of film actress that one would normally associate with this kind of outing.
Jacuzzi al pasado (Hot Tub Time Machine) - John Cusack follows up diaster movie 2012, with this high concept film, which does actually sound like it could be quite a lot of fun. Three old school friends decide to spend a weekend together in a mountain resort where they had had a great holiday some 20 years before. However, on their arrival, they find that nothing is as they remember, not least presumably because it turns out that the jacuzzi is now a time machine that can take them back to the Eighties.
Legión (Legion) - Fantasy film based around the premise that, racked with despair towards, and a loss of faith in, mankind, God sends a chorus of angels to Earth to get rid of all the planet's human inhabitants. Man's only hope is a group of misfits who are lent a hand by the archangel Michael. But of course. Stars Paul Bettany and Dennis Quaid.
Mi nombre es Khan (My name is Khan) - Romantic drama from India that is a long way from the Bollywood school of movie-making. Set in the US, Rizvan Khan is an Indian Muslim who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and who is in love with single mother, and Hindu, Mandira. Their domestic life is irreversibly disrupted on September 11th, 2001, a day whose consequences see the family destroyed and Rizvan set off on a journey across the US to tell people "My name is Khan and I'm not a terrorist."
The Crazies - Most of the inhabitants of a small town in the US go mad when a virus finds its way into their water system. This remake of a classic terror movie by George A. Romero that explores the failings of the so-called 'American dream' that sees a small group of 'average' Americans having to avoid the attacks of their previously normal neighbours and find a way to escape from the nightmare that their town has become.
