There is not too much to get excited about in terms of new releases this week but there might be something that catches your fancy.

‘The Way, Way Back’ is a coming of age comedy where we follow the awkward 14-year -old Duncan on his summer holiday with his mum and ver verbally abusive boyfriend.

Duncan ends up working at a water park when he befriends the quirky manager, Owen.

As it turns out this turns out to be the best thing that has ever happened to him and what he thought would be a terrible holiday to Massachusetts becomed ‘the only place [he’s] happy’.

For something completely different look no further than ‘Pain & Gain’ which is based on the true story of Daniel Lugo.

In a nutshell the movie tells the story of a trio of roided-out bodybuilders in Miami who decide to chase their version of the American dream by kidnapping a criminal as part of a crazy extortion scheme.

If you’ve been near a TV over the past couple of weeks you will have undoubtedly seen the somewhat unnerving trailer for ‘You’re next’.

While on a family holiday the Davison’s comes under attack from a group of sadistic killers.

Barricaded in their secluded vacation home, they must fight off a barrage of weapos from both inside and outside the house.

However, the family have a secret weapon the girlfriend of the eldest son who has a mysterious past that makes her very hard to kill.

And finally, the One Direction documentary is sure to either delight or annoy you depending on what side of the fence you’re on.
