There is some­thing for ev­ery­one with this month’s on-board en­ter­tain­ment. There are glossy, big-bud­get thrills courtesy of the Power Rangers, which fea­tures none other than Break­ing Bad’s Bryan Cranston, as well as El­iz­a­beth Banks, while you can warm up for the Novem­ber the­atri­cal re­lease of Thor: Rag­narok by re­vis­it­ing Chris Hemsworth’s god of thun­der in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. Smaller pas­sen­gers, mean­while, get their own un­likely hero with Cap­tain Un­der­pants: The First Epic Movie, in which two kids hyp­no­tise their head­mas­ter into think­ing he’s a su­per­pow­ered crime fighter.

There is also thought­ful his­tor­i­cal drama, as The Zookeeper’s Wife fol­lows the own­ers of The War­saw Zoo, who fought to save hun­dreds of peo­ple and an­i­mals in the dark­est days of World War II, and The Prom­ise (with Chris­tian Bale, Os­car Isaac and Char­lotte Le Bon), which of­fers a rare look at Turkey’s hor­rific cam­paign of Ar­me­nian geno­cide in the early 20th cen­tury. There’s also pow­er­ful drama of the lo­cal va­ri­ety with Don’t Tell, which cov­ers the true story of a brave young girl who speaks out about her sex­ual abuse at a pres­ti­gious board­ing school.

If you’re af­ter some­thing lighter, there’s com­edy with the star-stud­ded How To Be a Latin Lover, Once Upon a Time in Venice (in which Bruce Willis’s de­tec­tive seeks out the gang that stole his dog), and the up­lift­ing comedic ro­mance-tinged-by-tragedy of The Big Sick. Throw in mov­ing do­cos about the power of the nat­u­ral world ( Voy­age of the South­ern Sun and Moun­tain), a look at one man’s tri­umph in the world of vin­tage gam­ing ( Man Vs Snake), the story of a leg­endary Aussie band ( The Go-Betweens: Right Here), a taut Sam Wor­thing­ton thriller ( The Hunter’s Prayer), and a mon­ster movie head­lined by Anne Hath­away ( Colos­sal), and you have a fas­ci­nat­ing grab-bag of films.
