Blackhat

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, John Ortiz

Director Michael Mann takes on the world of hacking and espionage in his new thriller, starring the man also known as Thor as a hacker pulled into a worldwide conspiracy. Hemsworth proves he’s not just another Hollywood lunk and the film is shot with Mann’s trademark finesse (and camera filters).

Cake

Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington

Aniston shows her versatility in an award-nominated performance as a down-at-heel woman who suffers from chronic pain. Dark humour complements the tragedy as she tries to come to terms with the suicide of a support group colleague and battles her own demons. Note: this isn’t We’re The Millers 2.

Predestination

Starring: Ethan Hawke, Sarah Snook, Noah Taylor

Time travel – and all its head-scratching conundrums – drive the plot of this Aussie thriller, which deals with identity, people born intersex and well, a whole host of other mind-bending concepts. Trying to explain the plot is essentially impossible, so suffice to say there’s great performances from Snook and Hawke and while it might leave you baffled, it’ll certainly make you think.

Bill

Starring: Matthew Baynton, Ben Willbond, Helen McCrory

Created and performed by the people behind the brilliant Horrible Histories, the eponymous Bill is actually William Shakespeare (Baynton), who we meet in the period before he became a famous playwright in London. Anyone who knows the show will understand that means people playing multiple roles, lots of wit and genuine originality.
