Bridget Jones’s Baby (15) Today at 6pm and 8.45pm.

War Dogs (15) In this highly enjoyable romp, slackers David (Miles Teller) and Efraim (Jonah Hill) discover an obscure government initiative encouraging small businesses to bid for military contracts. They soon start making big bucks – and that’s where their problems begin. Friday at 6pm and Saturday at 8.15pm.

Bad Moms (15) With a high-powered career and a perfect family, Amy Mitchell (Kunis) apparently has it all. But the truth is that she’s overstressed. Amy finally snaps and decides to break free from her responsibilities in this hilarious paean to gloriously shameless self-determination. Friday at 8.30pm, Saturday at 6pm, Sunday at 5pm and Monday at 8pm.

Swallows and Amazons (PG) In this new adaptation of Arthur Ransome’s influential children’s book, siblings Tatty, John, Roger and Susan Walker are on holiday in the Lake District, and quickly jump aboard the eponymous Swallow to set sail for an island that’s long held their imagination. There they encounter the Blackett sisters, who have already claimed the island as their own. Saturday at 3.45pm, Sunday at 2.45pm and Tuesday at 2pm.

Captain Fantastic (15) In a remote forest, Ben Cash (Mortensen) raises and homeschools his six genius-tinged children whilst his wife, Leslie, battles with bipolar disorder. When she takes her own life in hospital, Ben and the children embark on a road trip to attend her funeral. The journey offers opportunities for their hippie-going-on-Marxist values to grate against America’s overfed consumerism – opportunities that the talented cast avidly mine for both humour and sly ideological reflection. Sunday at 7.15pm, Tuesday at 5pm and Thursday at 6pm.

Yarn (12A) Meet the artists who are redefining the tradition of knit and crochet. Yarn weaves together wool graffiti artists, circus performers and structural designers into a visually striking look at the women who are taking a stance while creating one of modern art’s hottest trends. Monday at 6pm.

My Scientology Movie (15) + Recorded Q&A Louis Theroux’s first theatrical feature documentary sees the renowned filmmaker delve into the world of Scientology. The unassuming Theroux won’t take no for an answer when his request to enter the Church of Scientology’s headquarters is turned down… With a good dose of humour, the film is as outlandish as it is revealing. Tuesday at 7.45pm.

RSC Live: King Lear Wednesday at 7pm
