Billboard 3: Releases of the Week

Don't forget! Yo still have time to enjoy some of the films that were released last Friday!

An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby's nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.

23-year-old Englishman Tom Allen is all set for a successful office-bound career, but he finds himself persisted by a question many of us face: isn't there more to life than this? Leaving everything and everyone behind, Tom sets off without maps or guidebooks on a quest to find the answer. But his new nomadic lifestyle is thrown into turmoil when he meets an Iranian-Armenian girl and falls in love. Tom does everything to keep his dream alive, but is forced to choose between her and the road. His decision takes him to the depths of the Sahara Desert, where - amidst challenges unimaginable - he catches a glimpse of the answer he set out to find. Filmed by Tom over four years with cinematic ambition, Janapar - named after an Armenian word for "journey" - is an honest and life-affirming tale of finding what you're looking for when you least expect it.

For one night only, the landmark concert film is re-released in Cineworld - and music fans get to see the full-length version for the first time! During 1975/76, Paul McCartney and Wings undertook their Wings Over the World tour. It turned out to be the largest tour ever undertaken by the band and gave rise to both the classic 'Wings Over America' triple album - and this famous concert film. Shot at the Kingdome in Seattle, it's a landmark snapshot of a group at the peak of their musical powers. The footage captures Wings in all their glory, performing hits such as Band on the Run, Venus and Mars and Bluebird. The film was cut down for its 1980 premiere in New York - and is now released in its full-uncut length for the very first time. Digitally remastered from the original 35MM film and with a dynamic new 5.1 sound mix, music fans do not want to miss this!
