Disney's live action adaptation of the classic animated film Beauty and the Beast is packed with familiar actors and voices, and is as intricately decorated as the French palace of Versailles, but fails when it comes to everything else.
One of the biggest and best international film festivals in the Czech Republic is back in Prague for it's 24th year. Febio Fest boasts an outstanding programme of films divided into unique categories, all screened at CineStar cinemas in Prague.

King Kong makes an epic return in this Apocalypse Now style rehash of the ancient movie monster. It's big, bold, and teeming with life and action adventure fun. For what it lacks in dialogue, it makes up for with goofy monster movie realness.
Keanu Reeves is back on bloody excellent form for the much anticipated sequel to John Wick. An extremely entertaining and artsy action sequel from the crew behind The Matrix.
