VIDEO: Your weekend movies... Liberace and exorcisms

Cinema trip this weekend? brings you snippets from new releases to help you decide where to put your money…

WHICH NEW MOVIE release is worth the price of a cinema ticket this weekend?

We’re here to help you decide just that, with these trailers.

Behind the Candelabra


For fans of: Glitz, glamour, plastic surgery

Avoid if: You hate floppy hair and Michael Douglas

Behind the Candelabra focuses on the relationship between flamboyant musician Liberace (Michael Douglas) and his much younger (and secret) lover of five years, Scott Thorson (Matt Damon). From plastic surgery to groupies, excess to sex, this is the rhinestone-encrusted look at how their relationship collapsed as dramatically as it began.

After Earth


For fans of: The Smith family, seeing Will Smith in perilous situations

Avoid if: You’ve just realised Will and Jada Smith called their children ‘Willow’ and ‘Jaden’

Will Smith and his son Jaden sport strange accents in After Earth, an action film that brings us to a future Earth that had to be abandoned because of some ‘mysterious’ incident. The Smiths crash land on the abandoned earth 1000 years after humans left it, and battle to survive. Will they? Ah here, it won’t take you long to guess.

The Last Exorcism Part II

(VISO Trailers/YouTube)

For fans of: Devils, exorcisms, pointless sequels

Avoid if: You’re a gentle sort

The Last Exorcism, er, part two? Right. Anywho, Eli Roth, master of subtlety (not) brings us a new take on exorcisms, with lots of back-bending action, fires, dark creatures and the devil’s work. The trailer is suspiciously snooze-worthy for such a premise.
