Out Now – 6th May 2011

Try to take comfort in the fact that Attack the Block is out next week when you look down this list of releases.

Priest
Defying church law a priest goes hunting the vampires that kidnapped his niece. Also there are futuristic super-bikes for no reason. Damn church and its pro-vampire laws.

Something Borrowed
Why would anyone watch this romance/comedy/drama about a single woman who falls for her friend’s fiancé? Because of Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski is why. This was a book!

13 Assassins
“A group of assassins come together for a suicide mission to kill an evil lord.” A baker’s dozen of assassins, just in case one gets ruined.

Everywhere and Nowhere
British Asian Youth are hardly overrepresented on film so director of Kidulthood made a movie about the battle between family traditions and what you really want to do, in this case DJing.

Outside the Law
