Movies This Week – 01-08-18
Another outing of the Marvel juggernaut (they actually have a character called that, right?), with the Ant Man and the Wasp this week. Don’t get too excited about it, it’s only ok.
Otherwise there’s a few animated films in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies and The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales… The most exciting release of the week is probably the Sicilian Ghost Story, but I guess that depends on whether you’re over 10 or not!
