Finding Fatimah is a tale of one man’s struggle to find love against the odds.

All young Muslim Shahid (Danny Ashok) wants is to find a life partner but, after five years of trying, he is still struggling to find ‘The One’. The aspiring stand-up comedian is about to hit 30, and his printer business is grinding to a halt, but there's something else that is rendering him well and truly UN-dateable... he’s divorced.

And now his ‘divorced tag’ is all people see. Using an online match-making site, Shahid sees no option but to select ‘never married’ on his profile, and when he falls for the bold and beautiful Dr Fatimah (Asmara Gabrielle), he must decide when and how to break the news.

Funny and heart-warming, Finding Fatimah is a hilarious look at the modern British Muslim dating scene. It releases nationwide in UK cinemas from April 21.

In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).

At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Noor (Sonakshi Sinha) is impatient, intelligent, impetuous and on the hunt for love in a city that is frustrating but also her addiction. She and her two best friends, Saad a young entrepreneurial restaurateur, who shuttles between London and Mumbai, and Zaara a with-it Parsi who plays DJ gigs at various nightclubs in the city, form the core of a coming-of-age story set in Mumbai, the ever-changing metropolis that is home to more than 21 million people.

Noor lives with her father and an absentee maid, Malti. She works at the Daily News, a local TV Channel, where she is relegated to covering socialite events, bakery openings and other banal fodder. Frustrated, with her job and her life in general, she is on the lookout for meaning. Be it in the form of an intelligent and handsome man, or a story that has some depth and substance.

In search of a story, Noor is genuinely faced with a challenge of righting a wrong and doing her best to fix a situation that she has placed herself in.

But does she have the courage to stand by her words?

The film captures her journey, her relationships, her friendships, her choices and many dilemmas as she comes of age, and develops a fresh perspective on life, her city and her best friend Saad, proving that sometimes everything you are looking for in life, may very well be sitting right before you!

It’s Hollywood, 1958. Small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Collins), under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Beatty), arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Ehrenreich), who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes’ #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes’ behaviour intersects with Marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.
