Scre4m (15)

It has been 10 years since the harrowing events of Scream 3 and traumatised survivor Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) has slowly put her shattered life together. She has penned a self-help book about her harrowing experiences and embarks on a whirlwind book tour, which culminates in a high-profile visit to her hometown of Woodsboro. The rare visit home allows Sidney to spend some quality time with her aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell) and niece Jill (Emma Roberts), and reunites her with plucky television journalist Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), who has married cop Dewey Riley (David Arquette). Alas, the return to Woodsboro brings Ghostface back into Sidney’s life and the crazed killer targets everyone close to the young woman and her loved ones, including Jill’s college pals Kirby (Hayden Panettiere) and Olivia (Marielle Jaffe).

Winnie The Pooh (U)

A narrator (John Cleese) welcomes us to Hundred Acre Wood where Pooh (voiced by Jim Cummings) is rudely woken from his bed in order to help look for Eeyore’s missing tail. Unfortunately, the rotund bear is more interested in finding a pot of honey than joining forces with Piglet (Travis Oates), Tigger (Cummings again), Rabbit (Tom Kenny), Owl (Craig Ferguson), Kanga (Kristen Anderson-Lopez) and Roo (Wyatt Hall). Then Owl misinterprets a note from Christopher Robin (Jack Boulter) and the whole gang embarks on a daredevil expedition to track down a wild beast called the Backson.

Father Solomon (Gary Oldman) vows to unmask the lycanthrope in their midst.

Your Highness (15)

Dastardly sorcerer Leezar (Justin Theroux) kidnaps the bride-to-be and spirits her away to his castle lair.
