This Week's UK Cinema Releases - 11th June

A rather slow week, but there's bound to be at least one gem out there to satisfy your appetites.

-Firstly, Gary Winick teams with the beautiful Amanda Seyfried for her second romance of the year, Letters to Juliet. Heading to Verona, Sophie (Seyfried) finds herself embroiled in a romance spanning fifty years, all-the-while sparking her own relationship despite being engaged to a pompous, overbearing New York chef (Gael Garcia Bernal). The film co-stars veteran Vanessa Redgrave and Aussie actor Christopher Egan. Read my review for the charming film here.

-Richard Gere hits up the streets of New York with Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke and Wesley Snipes in Antoine Fuqua's latest cop thriller, Brooklyn's Finest. Three unconnected cops collide after a series of unfortunate events. Fuqua's other hits include Training Day and Mark Wahlberg's Shooter.

-Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne star in Christopher Smith's (the director of Creep, Severence and mind-bending thriller Triangle) violent thriller, Black Death. As the bubonic plague spreads rapidly throughout towns, a young monk is sent on a mission to uncover the secret behind a town which hasn't been affected by the plague and is curiously 'bringing people back to life'.

-Ben Stiller also goes serious in Noah Baumbach's latest Indie drama, Greenberg. After a nervous breakdown, Roger moves to Los Angeles to housesit for his brother and finds himself in a rather awkward relationship with the families' P.A. An unconventional, but enjoyable, comedy.

-Cineworld cinemas are also holding special digital screenings of the 1946 black and white adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel, Great Expectations. Uniquely restored in picture and sound, the timeless story of a humble orphan suddenly becoming a gentleman with the help of a unknown benefactor hits the big-screen once again.
