If you’re looking for an escape from gloomy March in London, this week’s crop of new film releases offers plenty of options. Lily James stars in Kenneth Branagh’s sparkling new ‘Cinderella’ (above), which may roll back the strident feminism of recent Disney efforts like ‘Frozen‘, but looks so good that we forgive it – just. Meanwhile, ‘The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water’ will appeal to toddlers and stoned teenagers alike with its whacked-out humour, off-beam innuendo and bright colours. But even hardened fantasy fans are advised to stay away from ‘Seventh Son’: this derivative, sub-pantomime adventure may have a cracking cast – Oscar winners Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore both camp it up like crazy – but even they can’t distract from the plodding plot and ropey effects.
