Heading to the cinema this weekend? Here's a round-up of the best of what's on show movie-wise around the country.

Kong: Skull Island ***

Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts

Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Toby Kebbell, John C.Reilly, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Jing Tian

Looking for a thrill this weekend? Look no further than Kong: Skull Island

Do we really need another Kong movie is probably the question you're asking yourself right now, but for a big-screen reboot, Jordan Vogt Roberts has managed to do the impossible – make it seem fresh and relevant to today.

With Hiddleston, Jackson, Oscar winner Brie Larson, as well as the titular iconic silver screen monster himself, the film is packed with plenty of star power.  Vogt-Roberts, has reimagined the Kong myth, transporting him back to his home of Skull Island - an unexplored domain where monsters lurk under the surface.

The action is wound back to 1973 as the US war with Vietnam is coming to an end, Washington is in turmoil (sound familiar?) and NASA's Landsat programme has started mapping the Earth from space.

Trespass Against Us ***

Director: Adam Smith

Starring: Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson, Lyndsey Marshall, Georgie Smith, Rory Kinnear, Killian Scott, Sean Harris, Barry Keoghan

Gleeson and Fassbender shine opposite each other

Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson go to war with each other and the law in a family drama about the shackles of freedom.

Director Adam Smith combines a near Biblical tale of inter-generational conflict with a very enjoyable cops `n’ robbers flick.  It whizzes by with nifty action sequences (mostly seat of your pants car chases) but also lingers lovingly on the magnificent countryside that serves as a backdrop to very bad things in prosperous England.

Based loosely on a real life travelling clan in the UK, this is a pretty gripping movie. Fassbender's quiet rage sends it hurtling along like the crock of a hatchback he guns across the fabled land and the supporting cast of urchins and bad 'uns, including Barry Keoghan and Killian Scott, are good fun and also threatening

Elle ****

Director: Paul Verhoeven

Starring: Isabelle Huppert, Laurent Lafitte, Anne Consigny, Charles Berling

Isabelle Huppert earned critical acclaim for her turn in Elle

Elle is a wildly unpredictable thriller that dances between being an unflinchingly absurd, sadistically sensationalised and exploitative satire.  Based on the novel Oh by Philippe Djian, Verhoeven’s French-language debut feels less like a film and more like a violation.

It digs into a heart of darkness and aims to be contentious by testing the parameters of a rape victim who resists society’s responses to sexual abuse.

We follow Michele (Isabelle Huppert), the founder of a heavily eroticised video-game company, is savagely raped on the floor of her home by a masked intruder. Instead of reporting the incident to the police, she methodically plots revenge on her attacker and wields power over the men in her life to achieve her goals.  If you're looking for something hard-hitting this weekend, look no further.

Logan ****

Director: James Mangold

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen

Hugh Jackman's final time out as Wolverine has been receiving critical acclaim across the board, being touted as not just the finest Wolverine film, but one of the best in the extended Marvel Universe.

Based loosely on the Old Man Logan comics, this film is set in a near future where mutants are few in number and keeping a low profile.

Logan's super-hero gig is history and is now 9-5ing as a limo driver, and hiding out with fellow mutant Caliban (Stephen Merchant), caring for Patrick Stewart's ailing Professor X, who's now 90 years old.  If you have not seen it yet, do; It's fantastic.
