The popular and successful animated fantasy series gets finished off as a trilogy with How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. As Hiccup and the citizens of Berk try to provide a sanctuary for Toothless and the rest of the dragons, a dragon hunter by the name of Grimmel uses the last remaining female Night Fury (the same type of dragon) to try to capture Toothless. As always HTTYD packs in the adventure, camaraderie, romance and humour in a neat story and slick animation, in a series that’s well worth a watch.

Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant star in the much praised Can You Ever Forgive Me? based on the memoir of the same name by author Lee Israel. Struggling financially, having fallen out of fashion as a biographer, Israel starts selling her belongings, including a letter from Katharine Hepburn to a collector. But when low prices are offered for subsequent letters she finds she starts to embellish them to get more money. And this soon turns into full forgeries. Dark, sad yet often humorous, Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a fantastic vehicle for McCarthy’s more serious side, alongside a Withnail-reminiscent Grant as her accomplice Jack Hock.

Despite the popularity of the real life experiences, and some decent names in the cast such as Taylor Russell and Deborah Ann Woll, horror movie Escape Room is as formulaic as it sounds – escape the room or die. Borrowing heftily from Cube and the Saw series, it features a bunch of elite puzzle solvers trapped inside a bunch of deadly and intricate escape rooms. Inevitably not all of them survive.
