With certain doom on the horizon, can Lewis help save the day? Director Eli Roth is a big name in the horror genre having helmed the blood- drenched Hostel (rated 18 with very good reason). The House With a Clock in its Walls is his first foray into more family friendly fare, and – you know what? – he’s absolutely nailed it, helped by Erik Kripke’s fun- filled script and zany turns from both Black and Cate Blanchett as his quirky neighbour, Mrs. Zimmerman. If you loved the Harry Potter series and the first Fantastic Beasts movie, then you’ll absolutely adore this. King of Thieves Released 14 September Mile 22 DIRECTOR Malcolm D. Lee starring Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Anne Winters “My suspicions were correct. You’re 28 SEP clinically dumb.” Brought to you from the director of Girls Trip and Undercover Brother, this hilarious comedy sees Kevin Hart (Central Intelligence, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) losing his salesman job after accidentally blowing up his place of work. Uh-oh. Despite his obvious gift for the gab, he’s unable to find gainful new employment due to the fact that he didn’t finish high school. And so he enrols (along with several other misfits) in evening classes where he meets his match in the formidable Tiffany Haddish (Uncle Drew), a no-nonsense teacher who can’t believe that she’s stuck with this group of troublemakers. Hart and Haddish are extremely funny people. Put them in the same movie, add an interesting setting that’s ripe for send-up (i.e. night school) and a corking script and the result is slapstick farce at its side-splitting finest. Our grade? A definite A+. This is top-of-the-class fun.
