2015 has been a year of films breaking UK box office records.

After Fifty Shades of Grey and the latest Fast and Furious 7 Avengers: Age of Ultron pips them to the post with highest UK box office this year so far.

The time-frame of this story in Avengers shoots ahead into the future from the last one.

In the new movie the Avengers face Ultron, a maleficent artificial intelligence.

The film also brings some fresh blood into the team from the original Marvel’s comics.

If you want a context and understanding of the back history between the story-lines of the screenplays it’s recommended you check out the TV serial Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

You’ll get a good idea of what happened between both Avengers films.

Cyber bullying and uses and abuses of social media are big talking points in the new Information age.

And the horror movie, Unfriended tells you how an over-the-top prank can turn pretty ugly…in the most supernatural way.

The film includes strong language, violent action and references to sex.

Not recommended then for the under 15s.

No parental guidance needed for Two by Two aka Ooops! Noah is Gone… an animation movie about Finny from the a curious species called Nestrian and how he survived after being left over from the Ark of Noah.

Finally a novel based ‘dromance’ (drama-romance) movie set in Victorian England.

Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy is an emotional roller-coaster.

He’s never been known to write novels with particularly happy endings.

Without giving too much away it could be said they’re guaranteed to break hearts.

Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene, played by Carey Mulligan and her undecided relationship between three different suitors.
