Movies This Week – 28-08-19

This week we have a few very different releases. A Million Little Pieces is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson but sadly no one really seems to like it!

If you liked the Asterix books as a kid, then you can drag your children/ nephews/ nieces to Asterix: The Secret Of The Magic Potion which seems to be quite fun!

A Bump Along the Way is listed as being released this week on the official IFCO site, but it doesn’t seem to be showing anywhere? Same applies to Bait. The best new release this week is probably The Souvenir which stars Honor Swinton Byrne along with her mum Tilda! It’s a bit slow but is very well acted.

Dates for all upcoming movies can be found here.
