New releases

It's the year 2045 - the place Columbus, Ohio. Stephen Spielberg takes us on a virtual reality adventure story set against a dystopian back drop. The only way out of the crumbling town? Keys to a hallowed virtual world which can be won by winning a series of games. Elsewhere, the tradition of Amicus portmanteau movies from the 1960s is upheld in an atmospheric fable. Ready Player One and Ghost Stories are in cinemas this week. 

In television, Ordeal by Innocence  and The City and the City debut. The Good Karma Hospital, The Durrells, Marcella, Hold the Sun, Collateral, and Trauma continue.
