Here are the biggest releases coming to the UK this weekend:

Directed By: Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island).

In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.

Rotten Tomatoes Score - 49%

Age Rating: 12A, Runtime - 114 Mins.

Genre: Action, Disaster, Drama.

Release: Wide.

Anticipation - 7/10.

We haven't had a classic disaster flick in a long time that actually entertained us. The last memorable one was 2012 and that was a tremendously boring film. San Andreas from the trailers looks fun, the visuals look excellent and of course it stars Dwayne Johnson who improves almost every project he's involved in.

San Andreas opens in UK Cinemas Thursday 28th May.


Starring: Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz) and Lake Bell (In A World).

Directed By: Ben Palmer (The Inbetweeners Movie)

A single woman who's mistaken for a stranger's blind date, leads to her finding the perfect boyfriend.

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 80%.

Age Rating: 15, Runtime - 88 Mins.

Genre: Comedy, Romance.

Release: Wide.

Anticipation - 7/10.

I love a good Romantic Comedy, one that emotionally ties me to the characters, gets me invested in the relationship and also one that changes up the formula. Man Up isn't your standard boy meets girl story, these two characters really meet by coincidence and their relationship is formed on a lie and I'm interested to see how that plays out. I'm a fan of both Simon Pegg and Lake Bell so hopefully this should be a fun time.

Man Up opens on Friday 29th May.


Starring: Al Pacino (The Godfather), Annette Benning (American Beauty), Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyers Club) and Melissa Benoist (Whiplash).

Directed By: Dan Fogelman.

An aging rock star decides to change his life when he discovers a 40-year-old letter written to him by John Lennon.

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 80%.

Age Rating: 15, Runtime - 106 Mins.

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Music.

Release: Limited.

Anticipation - 8/10.

I am really interested in seeing Danny Collins, mainly because of Al Pacino, this isn't a role he usually plays and in recent years he's not done some of his best work, perhaps this is a return to form?

Danny Collins opens in the UK Friday 29th May.

This Week's Reviews:
