Here are the new flicks you’ll be able to go see from today…

Our top pick of the movies out in cinemas this week is King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Guy Ritchie’s take on the classic English tale.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Guy Ritchie brings his gritty, frenetic directing style to this epic fantasy starring Charlie Hunman (Pacific Rim) as the man who would be king. When Arthur’s father dies, his evil uncle (played by Jude Law) seizes the throne, and the boy grows up on the streets with no idea of his royal lineage. That is, until one day he pulls a sword from a stone. Expect the usual fast-paced action, wise-cracking one-liners and solid cinematography that Richie is known for.

The Dinner

The rather dull title doesn’t do justice to the star power behind this tense drama, which stars Laura Linney, Richard Gere, Rebecca Hall and Steve Coogan (in a rare serious role that’s far removed from Alan Partridge). The four play two classy couples who meet at a restaurant for dinner. The underlying issue though, is that they’re all covering up some dark secret involving their kids, and one of them wants to come clean…

Mukti Bhawan (Hotel Salvation) (Hindi) 

As part of the Dubai International Film Festival’s DIFF365 initiative, a project to bring world-class cinema to movie lovers throughout the year, Vox Cinemas will be screening the excellent Hotel Salvation, which tells the story of Daya, an old man who decides the time has come for him to travel to the sacred ghats of Varanasi in order to achieve salvation when he dies.  It’s as much about his relationship with his long-suffering son Rajiv (Adil Hussain) as it is about his imminent death.

Sarkar 3 (Hindi)

Ram Gopal Varma and Amitabh Bachchan collaborate once again with the third part of Sarkar after a nine-year hiatus from the franchise. The trilogy is inspired by Martin Scorsese’s The Godfather, and the drama follows the life of political figure Subhash Nagre, aka Sarkar, played by Bachchan.
