Brie Larson dons the lycra as Carol Danvers – one of the universe’s most powerful heroes – in this comicbook cracker. Bubbling over with breathtaking action, and as visually striking as cinema gets, it’s a thrilling origin story which bears all the hallmarks that have made Marvel films the gold standard in superhero storytelling. It’s brilliantly witty, too – so if the hard-hitting hijinks don’t get you, the quick quips will!




Available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €4.99 Nearly 80 years after he first took flight, Dumbo is back – and better than ever! With the mercurial Tim Burton in the director’s chair, it was always guaranteed to look the part, while a blue-chip cast including Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, Eva Green and our own Colin Farrell are pitch-perfect in the live-action adventure. It’s a chance for a whole new generation to fall in love with the excellent elephant – but don’t be surprised if it charms older viewers just as much!
