Feat. John C. Reilly, Joaquin Phoenix, Jake Gyllenhaal
John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix play a couple of fraternal assassins who hunt down a gold prospector in 1850s Oregon in this ambitious and constantly surprising Western that marks the auspicious English-language debut of adventurous French director Jacques Audiard.

BarbarosaBarbarosa (1982)
Dir. Fred Schepisi
Feat. Willie Nelson, Gary Busey
A dignified, under-rated Western from Australian director Fred Schepisi that pairs Gary Busey with Willie Nelson in a tale of a young cowboy fugitive who is taken under the wing of a famous bandito.
HostilesHostiles (2017)
Dir. Scott Cooper
Feat. Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi
Slow-burning western set in 1892, when a legendary Army Captain reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory to Montana. An impeccably constructed film in the classic vein, matched by a strong cast.
Meg, TheMeg, The (2018)
Dir. Jon Turteltaub
Feat. Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson
Shamelessly cheesy sub-JAWS aquatic entertainment, with Stratham as a deep-sea rescue diver who is going to save a group of scientists trapped inside a submarine from a mysterious, thought-to-be-extinct breed of shark. Big, silly and undemanding fun.

Tom Cruise reprises his role as Ethan Hunt in this highly regarded sixth installment of the film franchise. The stakes are higher than ever with Ethan and his team attempting to eradicate an international rogue organisation that wants to bring down the IMF.
SkyscraperSkyscraper (2018)
Dir. Rawson Marshall Thurber
Feat. Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han
Ludicrous action thriller where Dwayne Johnson plays a US war vet who provides security assessment for skyscrapers, but goes on the run after being framed for an arson attack on a building in China. Derivative but solidly constructed entertainment.
