We thought there were a lot of films released last week where as this week there are even more. Eight films are coming to various cinemas this weekend, ranging from love stories, foreign film, horror, drugs, thriller, comedy, British, and a biopic. There is literally something for everyone on show this week. It kind of gives you a dilemma of what to actually go and see but I think your best way of choosing will depend on what mood you are in on the night you go. Not all these films will be shown in the same cinemas but all have got wide release and will crop up somewhere near you. Have a look at them below.
