Everest

A starry cast including Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington feature in this true story about a 1996 ascent of Mount Everest, which did not turn out well. Stunning scenery and visual effects make this an IMAX trip worth making.

The D Train

Jack Black is still making movies in case you didn't know, with this one debuting in the US a good few months back. This is about him trying to make James Marsden attend their high school reunion. Reviews were pretty mixed but Black fans might want to check it out.

Robert Redford, who is totally still alive, plays author Bill Bryson in this glossy adaptation of the latter's 1998 book of the same name.
