Sonic the Hedgehog (Action-Adventure Comedy)

Guaranteed to be a family favourite, this action-adventure comedy is pure entertainment from start to finish. Many are jealous of the blue hedgehog with supersonic speed so when a set of anteaters decide to capture him to take his power, Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) uses his bag of rings to open portals to other planets. He lands on Earth and decides to stay – but chaos erupts when mad scientist, Dr Robotnik (Jim Carrey), realises this is just what he needs to take over the world. The jawline and other parts of James Marsden star as a local sheriff who aids Sonic on his quest.

The Gentlemen

From the genius mind of Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes) comes an ensemble movie with a stellar cast and storyline. When American-born Michael Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) decides to sell his marijuana empire in London for US$400 million, there are more attempts at bribery and blackmail than purchasing. Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Henry Golding (Crazy, Rich Asians), Hugh Grant (Love Actually) and Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) are just some of the incredible talents who make appearances in this film.
