It's 1992. On a rescue mission in space, Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Instead of being weakened, however, Jean finds her powers exponentially increased – but all the more difficult to control. When she inadvertently unleashes the full extent of her powers with devastating effect, the X-Men must find a way to save Jean, not just from herself, but also a mysterious being (Jessica Chastain) seeking to weaponise her power.

Revisiting a beloved comic book arc that was previously filmed as 2006’s The Last Stand, X-Men: Dark Phoenix brings this rebooted prequel series of X-films – starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult – to an end.

Grizzled detective Vic (Dave Bautista) receives word that a brutal killer he’s been tracking for months has resurfaced, but there’s one problem: he’s just undergone Lasik eye surgery and can barely see, let alone drive or shoot.

Requesting an Uber, Vic gets mild-mannered Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) as his driver. Having been on the receiving end of a string of one-star reviews, Stu has no choice but to help Vic track down the killer – as long as they don’t kill each other first.

A throwback to mismatched-partner action-comedies of the ‘80s, Stuber is an absurd, violent ride that pairs Nanjiani (The Big Sick) and his razor-sharp humour with Bautista (Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy) essentially playing Mr. Magoo with a gun.
