In Cinemas This Weekend - Dogknapping is a mad man's game.

Four new films will be hitting cinemas this weekend and one of them is a return from the makers of the brilliant In Bruges. That can only be a good thing right. As well as that there is some Kill Bill style fighting, a Miley Cyrus comedy, and another comedy from Brit director Julian Farino. Not quite as much choice for this week then but I suppose cinemas are clearing the way for next week's mega release. I won't state what that is just yet (although I'm sure you already know) and instead I will show you what is to be enjoyed this weekend. Take a look below.

1. From the team behind In Bruges comes SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS. Colin Farrell stars again but this time as a screenwriter who accidentally becomes involved in his odd friend's business venture; kidnapping dogs. The venture seems to work until they kidnap a gangster's beloved Shih Tzu who will do all he can to get it back. Not even a screenwriter could write his way out of this one! Also starring: Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, & Michael Pitt. How crazy can it be?

2. RZA directs Russell Crowe in this Tarantino-esque film THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS. The film follow a group of warriors and assassins on the hunt for hidden treasure but when they stumble across a small village in China they meet a humble blacksmith who is desperate to protect his village and stages a war against the group. Also starring: Chung Le, Lucy Liu, & RZA. How much will it hurt?

3. A kiddie's version of 21 Jump Street starring Miley Cyrus called SO UNDERCOVER also hits screens. Cyrus plays a private eye hired by the FBI to go undercover within a college sorority. Due to her leaving school at a young age and spying on cheating husbands, this is the one place she feels out of her comfort zone. Also starring: Alexis Knapp, Joshua Bowman, & Jeremy Piven. Will she remain undercover?

4. Lastly is THE ORANGES, a comedy directed by Julian Farino starring Hugh Laurie as the father of the Walling family. They hold a strong friendship with the Ostroff family but when the Ostroff daughter returns home for the holidays she begins an affair with Mr Walling that tests the families close relationship. Also starring: Leighton Meester, Catherine Keener, & Adam Brody. How would you react?

So they are your choices for this week then. Granted there isn't quite as much to choose from but I strongly advise heading to the cinema this weekend to watch one of these if they take your fancy. Next week will be dictated by this major film release and smaller film such as these may not get a look in. I haven't really heard much about these films, Seven Psychopaths having been the only one really marketed well, so I haven't got much to say on their potential. If In Bruges is anything to go by however I would possibly suggest Seven Psychopaths is the one to see.
