Three big releases in cinemas this weekend: crime comedy Logan Lucky, gripping true story Detroit and Tom Cruise taking to the skies again in American Made.

Logan Lucky ****
Never say never again. How fitting that a Bond movie title should sum up 007 fan Steven Soderbergh's return to cinemas a couple of years after announcing his retirement from the big screen.

Better still, he's even roped in the man himself, Daniel Craig, for Logan Lucky, an all-star anatomy-of-a-heist caper that rounds off the summer in snarky style. If you enjoyed Soderbergh's Ocean's Eleven movies, or his exemplary adaptation of Elmore Leonard's Out of Sight, then you'll get a kick out of him getting down and dirty Down South.

Detroit ***
The most harrowing film of the year thus far, Detroit sees Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow turn her lens to the riots that occurred in the city during the summer of 1967.

Bigelow focuses on what became known as the 'Algiers Motel Incident' - a night which left three African-American teenagers dead. Among the many shocks is the fact that the events of the night of July 25-26 1967 aren't more widely known - both at home and outside the US. For righting that wrong with her dramatisation, Bigelow deserves much credit. Read our full review here.

American Made ***
Tom Cruise in a plane - five words to bring joy to any studio boss' tougher-than-leather heart. Now imagine if he had sunglasses on too...

Sure enough, Cruise's shades-wearing return to the cockpit for American Made suggests that we're on board for another iconic role in his three-decades-plus career. And the man himself has gone down the checklist of what he needs to make that happen, from fascinating true story to the right director to a perfectly cast co-star. But, despite all that groundwork, the most important box of all is missing a tick: brilliant script. Read our full review here.

Still Showing:

The Dark Tower ***
Described as his magnum opus, best-selling author Stephen King has spent several decades and eight books building his Dark Tower multiverse. Kudos, then, to Danish director Nikolaj Arcel for putting a shape and some semblance on to what was always going to be a difficult project. The Dark Tower is a complex thing and the worlds it exists in are expansive.

Idris Elba stars as Roland, aka The Gunslinger, who must protect the Dark Tower from every imaginable demon at all costs. Matthew McConaughey is Walter, aka The Man in Black, who is evil right through to his very core. Sorcery is his weapon and he uses it with maximum force to try to destroy the Tower's defences and bring on a demon-driven apocalypse.

Everything, Everything ***1/2
The overwhelmingly charming teen romantic drama Everything, Everything delivers the intoxicating feeling of first love mixed with plenty of drama. It's your typical girl-meets-boy-next-door story but with one crucial difference - the girl suffers from a rare immune disorder which means she can never step outside her front door.

Based on Nicola Yoon's best-selling young adult novel of the same name, relative newcomers Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson bring the main characters of Maddy and Olly to life and it's a captivating watch from start to finish. Read our full review here.

The Hitman's Bodyguard ***1/2
Not even the considerable combined talents of Samuel L Jackson and Ryan Reynolds can save this uninspired crime caper that harks back to old-school buddy action comedies, but with none of the charm.

The premise is fairly convoluted. World-renowned assassin Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) has agreed to testify at the trial against the evil Belarusian dictator Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman) in exchange for his wife Sonia's (Salma Hayek) release from prison. Read our full review here.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power ****
Al Gore outside the GPO with a microphone and fold-up table? Seriously, you wouldn't put it past him after watching his quest to keep climate change front and centre of everyone's minds in An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power - paradoxically the most unwelcome follow-up in big screen history and a must-see.

A decade-and-a-bit on from the worldwide wake-up call of original Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, we join the former US Vice President in sleeves-rolled-up (and socks-drying-on-the-back-of-hotel-chair) mode with the twin spectres of extreme weather and fossil fuels as his travelling companions. Outside the cinema none of us can afford to be along for the ride. Read our full review here.
