The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn, whose previous works include Kick-Ass and X-Men:First Class.

The film also stars Colin Firth and Michael Caine, both BAFTA and Golden Globes award winning actors.

20th Century Fox’s website describes the film:

Based upon the acclaimed comic book … Kingsman: The Secret Service tells a story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

And for the younger audience, a new Disney animated movie, Big Hero 6 is in cinemas this Friday.

It is an adventurous and amusing story between an inflatable robot named Baymax and a young prodigy named Hiro Hamada saving the city of San Francisco.

Don’t worry if you haven’t seen any of the five previous films, because there weren’t any! Big Hero 6 is actually the name of the team of that Hiro and Baymax form.

For some drama-comedy blended with crime, Trasha co-production from the UK and Brazil, will also be released on Friday.

The film, which already has a BAFTA nomination, should bring a hint of South American warmth this winter.

For the past two weeks, American Sniper has found commercial success, as witnessed by its box office figures and six Oscar nominations.

The film is still in cinemas, should you want to catch it.
