OPEN­ING NEXT WEEK SEVEN PSY­CHOPATHS What a ti­tle! Colin Far­rell and Christo­pher Walken are among those swear­ing and josh­ing in Martin McDonagh’s fol­low-up to cult favourite In Bruges. MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS RZA, former Wu-Tang mae­stro, makes his di­rec­to­rial de­but with an adap­ta­tion of an early Balzac novel. Only kid­ding. It’s a mar­tial arts drama, “pre­sented” by Quentin Tarantino, co-pro­duced by Eli Roth and star­ring RZA, CE­LESTE & JESSE FOR­EVER Rashida Jones and Andy Sam­berg play a cou­ple try­ing to keep their friend­ship alive fol­low­ing their di­vorce. Sam­berg de­serves a break af­ter suf­fer­ing bravely through Adam San­dler’s That’s My Boy. SO UN­DER­COVER Mi­ley Cyrus plays a “tough, street- smart pri­vate eye” who goes un­der­cover in a col­lege soror­ity for the FBI. Say it isn’t so.

OPEN­ING DE­CEM­BER 13TH THE HOB­BIT: AN UN­EX­PECTED JOUR­NEY Do we need to tell you any­thing more about this? Peter Jack­son re­turns to the Tolkien trough with the first of three films de­rived from his mod­estly sized first novel. Martin Free­man and Ian McKellen star.

OPEN­ING DE­CEM­BER 14th WHAT EVER HAP­PENED TO BABY JANE? Wel­come 50th an­niver­sary out­ing for Robert Aldrich’s bril­liant melo­drama star­ring Bette Davis and Joan Craw­ford as a pair of un­happy sis­ters brood­ing fa­tally on an­cient ri­val­ries. Flaw­less.

OPEN­ING DE­CEM­BER 20th LIFE OF PI Ang Lee en­ters Os­car sea­son with his take on Yann Martel’s Booker-win­ning al­le­gor­i­cal novel con­cern­ing magic re­al­ist ad­ven­tures on the high seas. Al­ready highly praised on US re­lease.
