Based on the 2008 novel by Liz Tuccillo, also the co-author of He’s Just Not That Into You, How To Be Single is a new rom-com following twenty-something Alice, played by Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades Of Grey), as she moves to New York. A familiar premise perhaps. Alice has recently left both college and a long-term boyfriend behind her to try her luck in the Big Apple. After encountering Robin, played by Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), the pair, along with a host of other singletons, discover what single life is really like in the big city.
Disney’s latest release The Finest Hours is an adaptation of a book by the same name, which recounts the true story of a daring US coastguard operation in 1952 off the coast of New England. Starring Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Casey Affleck, the film shows the efforts of four coastguards sent to rescue a crew of 32 from an oil tanker, the SS Pendleton, in a boat built for 12 people. The Finest Hours draws inspiration from other tales of American heroism, and perhaps adds more Hollywood romance than the original tale, but the key facts to the story behind the film remain.
