Genre: Family

What's the story? Gru's loveably hapless helpers finally get their own spin-off movie! 

Since they first appeared in the smash-hit Despicable Me movies, the Minions have become some of the most popular animated characters of all time with their loveable nonsense language and fondness for chaos. Now they finally get a movie all to themselves. Banana!

Promising all the huge laughs we expect from the hapless Minions, this eagerly awaited origin story explores the history of the characters and the masters they've served across the ages, from the Ancient Egyptians to Dracula and Napoleon. Fast forward to the psychedelic 1960s and the Minions find a new master: female supervillain Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Gravity megastar Sandra Bullock), who is planning to steal Queen Elizabeth II's Crown Jewels.

Slow West

What's the story? An epic Western adventure starring Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

The year is 1870. Young Scottish aristocrat Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is besotted with Rose (Caren Pistorius). However, she has recently ventured overseas to America with her father. Determined to win her heart, Jay travels to America in pursuit. 

Arriving in Colorado, he runs into drifter Silas Selleck (Michael Fassbender), with whom Jay teams up to discover Rose's whereabouts. However, unbeknownst to Jay, Silas is out to collect a bounty on Rose's head. Dynamic, mercurial Oscar nominee Fassbender, acclaimed for the likes of 12 Years a Slave, Shame and last year's offbeat comedy Frank, heads up this visually breathtaking western, one that mixes pistol-toting action with quirky humour to unique effect.
