At Irish Cinemas February 26th

Sacha Baron Cohen is back in cinemas with his latest over the top comedy, and there are also some horror and drama options out there

Movies are happening every week, and we've got the run down for the week ending in Friday the 26th of February. The big release is a new comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen - the man behind Borat and Bruno and a lot of very risque laughs. There's also a horror offering and some tense drama to enjoy.

Grimsby

Sacha Baron Cohen is back and this time he's playing a yob from the titular town who manages to find his long lost brother. He's played by the always great Mark Strong and just so happens to be a secret agent. That means there's room for big action and inappropriate laughs in this over the top comedy. Also starring Rebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz and Isla Fisher.

The Forest

Game of Thrones' Natalie Dormer plays a woman who travels to Japan in search of her missing twin sister. There she finds herself in the eerie location of Aokigahara Forest, a place where many travel to end their lives. Things just get spookier from there.

The Propaganda Game

Delve into the modern mystery which is North Korea in this documentary which manages to get an unusally high level of access to the all but closed off country. A Spanish filmmaker travels to the country to find out what it's actually like to live there.

Secret in Their Eyes

If you find that title familar you may have seen the 2009 original - an Argentinian film which won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 2009. That was based on a book so this is the third time it has come to the screen. At least there's an impressive cast including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman in place.
