Your weekend preview for September 22 until September 25.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle
By the time you read this, one big release will have already landed in cinemas. Kingsman: The Golden Circle was released on 20 September and has already had two days to occupy the UK box office. The film reunites Taron Edgerton, Colin Firth and director Matthew Vaughan for more over the top espionage. This time, however they will be joined by American spies Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum who’s looking wonderful in a Stetson.
Borg vs McEnroe
Friday 22 September will see the release of Borg vs McEnroe and promises a bigger showdown than Batman v Superman could ever have hoped for. Directed by Janus Metz, the film retells the intense rivalry of professional tennis players John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg during the 1980’s. Casting Shia LaBeouf as McEnroe appears to be inspired casting and may well prove the films biggest strength.
