This Week's UK Cinema Releases - 28th May

A week full of varied releases, including one of my own most anticipated films of the year.

-Michael Patrick King returns behind the director's chair to bring us the four classy ingénues once again in the most fashionable sequel of the year, Sex and the City 2. Die-hard fans of the show will be rushing to cinemas worldwide come this Friday to see their favourite on-screen characters tackling lifes constant challenges. Carrie deals with Big's incompetence after marriage; Charlotte realises motherhood isn't as easy-going as she had expected; Miranda has a new, obnoxious boss to deal with; and Samantha is merely enjoying being free and single. The girls, however, are swept away on an five-star trip to Abu Dhabi.

-Horror fans will be going shit-crazy come Friday, when the sequel - set a mere 15 minutes after the original ended - to Spanish horror [REC], [REC]2, is released. This time we follow a SWAT team as they enter the quarantined complex, outfitted with video cameras, unaware of the ravenous zombies unleashed throughout the building. Undoubtedly one of the scariest, most intense, films of the year. Don't miss this one!

-Action caper The Losers is also released. Jeffery Dean Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Chris Evans and Justin Long star in a fast-paced, action romp about a CIA black ops team left for dead, betrayed by the powerful Max (Jason Patric). The film spirals into a case of revenge, seeing the rag-tag group attempting their most dangerous mission yet.

-The last sequel this week comes in the form of 3D animation Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back. The film sees the lovable chimp Comet traveling to an alien planet to find out evil alien ruler Zartog has taken over Mission Control. Teaming up with his friends Ham, Luna and Titan, the chimps must thwart Zartog's destructive plans.

-Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is also appearing in cinemas, suited with a tutu and sparkly, Tinkerbell-like wings in Tooth Fairy. Rugged man's man Derek Thompson commits a bad deed, leading to a rather unusual sentence; taking the role of the mystical tooth fairy for a week. Cue the cheaply uneffective jokes and 90 minutes of evidence proving Johnson has committed career-suicide.

-Foreign drama The Time That Remains is also released nationwide, but on a more limited scale. Directed by Elia Suleiman, the film examines life in Israel from 1948 to the present day, all inspired by his parent's accounts.
