The Magnificent Seven (12A) Saddle up for a whole bunch of rootin’, tootin’ and gun shootin’ as this action-packed Western reboot rides into cinemas. With the small town of Rose Creek under the dastardly thumb of big-boss industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the beleaguered townsfolk seek protection by employing a ragtag gang of mercenary gunslingers. Denzel Washington rocks a magnificent moustache as the gang’s outlaw leader. A climactic mass shoot-out is guaranteed. Friday, Saturday and Monday at 6pm, Sunday at 7.30pm, Tuesday at 5pm and Wednesday at 8.30pm.

The Girl with All the Gifts (15) In a post-apocalyptic Britain, most of humanity has been decimated by an infection that turns its victims into flesh-eating zombies. On a heavily guarded army base, a small group of apparently immune but ultimately doomed children are being studied by a callous biological scientist (Close). When crazed zombies eventually overrun the base, one highly gifted child (remarkable newcomer Nanua) escapes with her kindly teacher (Arterton), along with a protective soldier (Paddy Considine) and the treacherous scientist. Based on the terrific but terrifying bestselling novel by M. R. Carey, Peaky Blinders director Colm McCarthy’s big-screen breakthrough has elements of undead epics such as World War Z and 28 Days Later…, and features a uniquely nuanced narrative and winning turns from all involved. Friday at 8.45pm and Tuesday at 7.45pm.

Supersonic (15) Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna), teams up with Mat Whitecross (Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, Spike Island) to tackle game-changing act Oasis. With unprecedented access to Oasis’s archive, they create a magnificent patchwork of film and interviews. This must-see documentary follows the Gallaghers’ truly rags-to-riches journey. The brothers speak unusually candidly about their fractious relationship and extraordinary rise to fame. Supersonic tells the riveting story behind one of the world’s greatest super-bands. Saturday at 8.45pm.

Deepwater Horizon (12A) Mark Wahlberg stars in this fact-based drama centred on the worst oil spill in US history. Wahlberg plays a wisecracking engineer who leaves his anxious family for a stint on the titular Deepwater Horizon oil rig. A crippling explosion imperils the entire crew, killing eleven of them. The remaining crew must fight for survival amid the firestorm engulfing the rig. Sunday at 5pm, Monday at 8.45pm, Tuesday at 2pm and Wednesday at 6pm.
