Comment by Dr. Loomis – Cinema Releases January 12 2018

This week looks to have a couple of interesting films, The Commuter starring Liam Neeson is one I will be definitely taking a look at upon its UK release next which leaves me with horror film Insidious: The Last Key to enjoy this weekend. 

Paddington 2 is also out this week in America having already done stellar business at the UK box office and I expect it to do rather well in the US and so will Warner Bros having recently secured the rights.
