Flights of fancy with a new version of Peter Pan and gothic horror with Crimson Peak are just some of the delights on offer

Guillermo del Toro's last film was about giant robots fighting giant monsters, so what does he do next? Why a period gothic romance set in England in the 1800s! That's Crimson Peak and it's just one of the movie delights on offer this coming week, alongside a new take on Peter Pan, plus drama and the utterly strange The Lobster starring Colin Farrell.

Crimson Peak

This atmosphere-drenched film may look like it's a full blown horror but director Guillermo del Toro is keen to point out he's making a gothic romance. You can still expect chills and some incredible images, as well as a great cast including Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain.

Pan

The story of Peter Pan, but as you've never seen it before. Go back to see how the boy Peter came to fly to Neverland and see a whole new fantastical world open up. From acclaimed director Joe Wright (Atonement, Anna Karenina) comes a beautiful new vision, starring Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara.

The Lobster

Colin Farrell leads the cast in this film which is about a future society where you have to find a mate or you'll be turned into the animal of your choice. Farrell chose a lobster, hence the title. This was filmed mostly in Co. Kerry in Ireland and also features Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly Olivia Colman and lots of weird stuff.

Suffragette

Carrie Mulligan stars in an account of the early suffragette movement, which toiled to empower women in society only just over a century ago. It's a powerful true story, brought to life by Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson and more.

Hotel Transylvania 2

Adam Sandler is back as Dracula, running a hotel for monsters with his buddies. But when his grandson doesn't seem to be following in the family tradition, it's time for a zany road trip. A great family film for the season that's in it. Also featuring Kevin James, Steve Buscemi and Selena Gomez.
