Coming Soon: May 2017

May is a pretty interesting month for film, with small British independents dotted in amongst blockbusters, sci-fi, a reboot of Baywatch and the latest Studio Ghibli animation.

As ever, all films below are released in cinemas in May 2017 in the U.K.: some may have already opened abroad so if you're outside the U.K. then do check your local cinemas for film times and release dates.

This month, I've already seen Frantz and Mindhorn, but I cannot wait for Miss Sloane, Colossal and The Levelling. My fingers are crossed that my local Picturehouse will have Lost in London too as I'm so intrigued by it!

Plus, Baywatch looks like a riot in the trailers so I'm hoping it lives up to expectations and isn't a disappointment...
