A trailer has arrived online for the UK release of murder mystery thriller Dark Places, directed by French filmmaker Gilles Paquet-Brenner and based on a novel by Gone Girl scribe Gillian Flynn.
The film, investigating a long-buried murder case, features a packed cast of Hollywood’s finest including Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Chloe Grace Moretz. Ant-Man villain Corey Stoll also pops up as the man originally locked up for the crime.
Dark Places was released in America earlier this year and is finally making its UK bow in February, with a DVD/Blu-ray release to follow in the same month alongside availability via VOD platforms.
The return of an enormous young adult franchise dominates multiplex screens in November as the steady stream of awards candidates continues unabated. In between Spectre and Star Wars, it’s possible that The Hunger Games finale might struggle to find purchase at the box office, but there’s plenty for cinemagoers to see elsewhere.
Counter-programming in the autumnal blockbuster period presents a charming British comedy, a series of weighty dramas with major Oscar pedigree and the bizarre spectacle of Nicholas Hoult pissing on James Corden.
Here are ten films you should head out and see this month in UK cinemas.

The wait is finally over for Spectre. Bond 24 has already landed in the UK and will arrive in US cinemas this week, and it might just be the most hyped Bond film to date. Daniel Craig has developed an extremely passionate following among younger Bond fans, and if you add that to the generations of people who have always loved the franchise, it’s fair to suggest that James Bond is bigger than ever.
Early reviews for Spectre are largely positive, but of course each fan will need to decide for him/herself how it stacks up against the recent Craig efforts and the series as a whole. And in case you’ve missed some of the news and trailers leading up to the film, here are all of the major details you should know heading into the release, from the new Bond girls to 007’s latest ride.
