This Week's UK Cinema Releases, 2nd July

-Those with a tendency to duck at the sight of a teeny-bopper may wish to cower in safety in their homes this weekend as the previews for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse are hitting cinemas all over Britain. The third outing sees Bella (Kristen Stewart) dealing with graduation, her feisty vampire enemy Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) and the love she has for charming, incorrigibly broody, vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and hot-tempered werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner)

-Rory and Kieren Culkin team up with Alec Baldwin, Cynthia Nixon and rising star Emma Roberts in the poignant tale about family in Lymelife, dealing with a family's down-spiraling condition after a failing marriage.

-French romcom Heartbreaker has also caused a positive stir with audiences and critics alike. Romain Duris is Alex, a man whose business partnership with his sister leads him to end relationships on strictly work ethics. Problems, however, come in the form of a rich man hiring Alex to break up the wedding belonging to his daughter.

-White Material is a hard-hitting drama, following director Claire Denis as she returns to Africa but focuses more on civil and racial conflicts. Maria (Isabelle Huppert) must decide between safety and protecting her livelihood as the ever-increasing Civil War causes problems on her coffee plantation. Help thankfully arises as a local black man decides to risk his life for the family - something which Maria, her husband and her son appreciate dearly.

-The Jason Isaacs comedy Skeletons is also released. Two real exorcists make a living out of ridding actual skeletons found in people's closets, but find trouble in their latest case when the skeletons decide to hide themselves.
