Comment by Dr. Loomis

Another week in which one massive release dominates the cinemas around the world, I am of course referring to Baywatch. 

Oh and I believe there is a new Johnny Depp film out called Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge in the UK or Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales everywhere else.
