We were in severe danger of seeing out 2020 without a Gerard Butler action/ disaster masterpiece, but thankfully no such travesty shall come to pass for: THIS. IS. GREENLAND. The basic premise (could it be anything but?) goes thus - Butler plays John, a gruff salt-of-the-Earth dad estranged from his wife and boy. When it becomes apparent the asteroid hurtling towards our atmosphere previously believed to be benign is now going to wipe out vast swathes of life, he jumps in his car and attempts to cart his family to safety. IMDb gives it 6.5

Trolls World Tour

“The Trolls Are Back.” So begins this movie’s trailer and we’re sure if you’re into the colourful gonks this will be welcome news. If like us you don't know too much about them aside from the small toys which used to adorn the tips of pencils, this movie is an animated musical starring Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick. In it they sing songs in a brightly lit fantasy land. What’s not to like. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 71%

Man makes robot. It’s a well-worn plot, but does Archive possess a bit of a twist? Well, the inventor George (Theo James) is trying to bring back his deceased wife Jules (Stacy Martin) through complex AI and the aforementioned android, so yeah. It’s 2038 and George is looking to download his partner’s memories and personality into a machine so he will no longer feel loss. He’s pretty close but must keep the motive behind his project a secret from his bosses. Rotten Tomatoes gives it 71%

Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna

Who knew this cartoon was still going? It was always better than Pokemon, so we guess it stands to reason. In this film the team discover that when they grow up, their relationships with Digimon come closer to a conclusion. They realise the more they fight, the faster their bond breaks and the time to choose between combat and friendship is fast approaching. IMDb gives it 7.6
