Spectre is the twenty-fourth James Bond film and Daniel Craig’s fourth (and quite possibly, final) outing as Ian Fleming’s 007. Once again directed by Sam Mendes (returning after the huge success of Skyfall), the plot features the global criminal organisation Spectre – their first appearance in an Eon Productions film, due to years of legal wrangling, since Diamonds Are Forever in 1971. When a cryptic message from beyond the grave sets Bond into unsanctioned action, a chain reaction is triggered that will propel him around the world and eventually bring him face to face with the author of all his pain…

Part One of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows marks the beginning of the end. When the last book of the best-selling series was released, many fans took solace in the fact that there were still more of the films left to enjoy. But now the multi-million franchise is winding down to an end with the final novel being adapted into two films. Director David Yates returns after helming Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to see the series off. The final instalment sees the trio out of their native Hogwarts and forced into hiding as Voldermort seizes control of the Ministry and strikes terror into the hearts of the wizarding community. It’s up to ‘The Boy Who Lived’ and his friends to find and destroy the Horcruxes, fragmented parts of Voldermort’s soul, in order to defeat the Dark Lord.
