In Cinema's This Weekend: Fassbender brought to his knees.

This week there are 6 new films to be released in cinemas across the UK. Have a read of what they are and see which suits your fancy. Head out and see it and let us know what you think.

1. First we have the film where we will witness Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum both getting their asses kicked in HAYWIRE, where a betrayed CIA agent decides to take revenge on her bosses who set her up. Also starring Gina Carano, Ewen McGregor and Michael Angarano. Fancy this?

2. We also get another sequel to the over run vampires vs werewolves sage. No not twilight but UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING. In this one we see the vampires and lycans (werewolves) fight against human kind when they threaten their existence. The only thing that gets me up for this is Kate Beckinsale but other than that nothing else. Also starring Michael Ealy, India Eisley and Stephen Rea. Like a werewolf battle that isn't Twilight?

3. Leonardo Di Caprio comes back to the big screen and this time is directed by Clint Eastwood. Award winning partnership? Let's hope so. This film is J. EDGAR which is the story of the founder of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover. Looking at his uprising to law enforcer and how his secrets destroyed his image. Also starring Armie Hammer from The Social Network, Naomi Watts and Josh Hamilton. Another biopic wet the whistle?

4. Another typical comedy which pits an incompetent man in a position which he is not best suited and everything goes wrong. This time it is Jonah Hill in THE SITTER. He plays a student on suspension who has to babysit the kids next door and all goes horribly wrong. Also starring Ari Graynor, Sam Rockwell and Max Records. Not bored of this style of comedy?

5. Ralph Fiennes makes his directorial debut in Rome epic CORIOLANUS. Fiennes not only directs but also stars alongside Gerard Butler in a film about two sworn enemies joining forces to take revenge on Rome for banishing them. Sounds like it could be either up for awards or forgotten like Troy. Also starring Brian Cox and Lubna Azabal. Fancy an epic?

6. Finally we finish with a film directed by Madonna. Yes that is right Madonna!! Does this put you off or intrigue you? The film is W.E. and is about the romantic connections between two couples, both ion an era where their relationships will be frowned upon by their families and the public. One of these couples is King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. Starring Abbie Cornish, James D'Arcy, Andrea Riseborough and Oscar Isaac. Madonna get you excited?

So there you go, a lot of films out this week. Fassbender being battered, Beckinsale in lycra, Di Caprio back on the screen, an incompetent Hill, an epic from Fiennes and Madonna's directorial debut. What will you see?

I will be heading to see one this weekend but will let you know on Monday and tell you what I thought of it. If I'm honest J. EDGAR is swaying it for me.
