Movies This Week – 27-06-18
The big one this week is Dublin Oldschool, and from an Irish perspective, will there be a bigger release this year? Probably not, as this is the sort of film that goes down in legend, such as Adam and Paul. See it if you can. Leave No Trace and Sicario: Day of the Soldado are the other interesting releases of the week!
