Are mak­ing their way to Poland for Euro 2012. Sure to be both mad and gas.

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM LISTINGS - DON­ALD CLARKE

OPEN­ING NEXT WEEK CLOUD ATLAS Hugely am­bi­tious at­tempt to com­pact David Mitchell’s wide-rang­ing novel into a movie. The Wa­chowski sib­lings again at­tempt to re­gain the sta­tus they achieved with The Ma­trix. Among those as­sum­ing mul­ti­ple roles are Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broad­bent, Hugo Weav­ing (left) and Hugh Grant. HARDY BUCKS: THE MOVIE Get up the yard, lads. The rough­hewn stars of TV and vi­ral video SONG FOR MAR­ION Ter­rence Stamp is really grumpy when his se­ri­ously ill wife, played by a plucky Vanessa Red­grave, in­sists upon at­tend­ing the lo­cal choir. He’ll come round. Won’t he? MEA MAX­IMA CULPA: SI­LENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD Alex Gib­ney brings us an­other doc­u­men­tary on the Catholic Church’s un­sat­is­fac­tory re­sponse to cler­i­cal abuse. This pow­er­ful film fo­cuses on of­fenses against deaf chil­dren.

OPEN­ING MARCH 1st BRO­KEN CITY Mark Wahlberg is an ex-cop and Rus­sell Crowe is the mayor of New York, both of them knee deep in all sorts of grim bother. Is the alternative ti­tle Hard and Harder? AR­BI­TRAGE Richard Gere re­turns with crack­ing per­for­mance as hedge­fund man­ager in all kinds of le­gal bother. Wel­come back, old guy. STOKER Park Chan Wook, di­rec­tor of Old Boy, de­liv­ers a puz­zling vam­pire saga fea­tur­ing a very starry cast. Mia Wasikowska, Ni­cole Kid­man, Matthew Goode, Der­mot Mul­roney and Jacki Weaver are all on board. SAFE HAVEN The lat­est weepie based on a Ni­cholas Sparks novel features Ju­lianne Hough as a woman with a mys­te­ri­ous past. We bet it’s set in North Carolina. Yup!
