Trailer watch: Which movie should you go see this weekend?

What’s a must-watch, and what’s a miss? We tell you.

THE WEEKEND IS coming up, and that means new movies for you to see. But which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid?

We take a look.

Tomorrowland: A World Beyond

What we know

Disney are keeping things vague, but we know there’s a VIP theme park (that’s possibly in the future) and George Clooney.

What the critics say

  • “Tomorrowland is part location, part MacGuffin, but mostly it’s a conceptual stand-in for what the movie is really interested in: hope and optimism.”- The Verge 
  • “The story proceeds at a brisk pace, the answers to the riddles always one step ahead and mysterious android baddies one step behind.”- The Guardian

A Fuller Life

What we know

Samantha Fuller pays tribute to her late father, the icon Sam Fuller, with this documentary.

What the critics say

  • “…those intrigued by an indelibly influential persona that combined showman-like flamboyance, old-school masculinity and die-hard personal integrity to disarming and intoxicating degrees, will find much to chew on here.” - Hollywood Reporter 
  • “It adds up to a rich portrait of an extraordinary man, half-tortured artist, half cigar-chomping action hero.” - The Guardian 

What’s it rated?

Poltergeist (2015)

What we know

Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt star, so it can’t be that bad, right?

What the critics say

  • “Less a steadily escalating thriller than a guided tour through a county-fair-style haunted house, “Poltergeist” offers some quality jump scares, and Kenan has a knack for staging solid individual setpieces.” - Variety 
  • “Although Rockwell appears capable of holding the Bowens together in the face of financial and personal peril, it’s a rather under-written part that lacks the frequent character tics he’s exploited more memorably in smaller-scale films” - Hollywood Reporter
