This just in: Toy Story 4 is the big box office player in cinemas this weekend.

Toy Story 4 ****

There was arguably no need to make a fourth Toy Story film, but this outing is undeniably funny and heartfelt and will give you all the warm and fuzzies that only Toy Story can.

By any other standards Toy Story 4 would be an absolute knockout, but when it follows the masterpiece that was Toy Story 3 it is naturally held to the highest bar. Although it doesn't quite stay at that level of perfection, it feels like a sort of epilogue or added bonus to what has come before it.

The film pulls off the Pixar masterstroke of balancing themes and laughs that really play to the adults who have been with Toy Story from the very beginning, with plenty for audiences that might be discovering the wonder of this world for the very first time - what a treat they are in for.

Brightburn **

Brightburn takes the superhero and horror genres, mashes them together and hopes for the best. 

This undoubtedly interesting concept is botched pretty badly. 

Basically flipping the Superman origin story on its head, Brandon Beyer (Jackson A. Dunn) crashed to earth on an alien spacecraft as a baby. He serendipitously lands on the Kansas farm of young couple Tori (Elizabeth Banks) and Kyle (David Denman), who are desperately trying, and failing, to conceive. Read our full review here.

Still Showing:

Men in Black: International **1/2

"The Universe has a way of leading you to where you're supposed to be, the moment you're supposed to be there," we're told - twice - as the MiB's London branch opens its doors for box office business. 


Such wisdom may prove of little comfort to stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth, who come crashing back down to Earth in this sub-par spin-off after enjoying the out-of-this-world success of Avengers: Endgame.

Director F. Gary Gray could also have some bumps and bruises of his own as the reviews and receipts appear - his last film was Fast & Furious 8. Read our full review here.

We the Animals ****

Indie and roughouse, but tender too, We the Animals is a boldly experimental work that approaches true cinematic greatness in its understated exploration of one American family under pressure.

Jeremiah Zagar's debut feature augurs very well indeed for future work from the young American director, blending an improv feel with a skilful, modest use of animation. 

Based on Justin Torres's semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, what We the Animals has achieved must have involved an unusual degree of trust between the director and his youthful cast. Read our full review here.

Diego Maradona *****

"When you come out you think you knew the story, but actually you realise there was so much you didn't know."

That's what Asif Kapadia is promising from his latest study of wayward genius, which sees the director complete a stunning hat-trick after his documentaries on Amy Winehouse and Ayrton Senna. Good luck winning an argument over which of the films is the best.

Kapadia told RTÉ Entertainment that he considers Diego Maradona to be "a kind of sporting gangster film", and the unbearable tension of both genres is in abundance. If the story was fiction you'd say it was too far-fetched. Read our full review here.
